Cerrato Discusses Right Guard Options

I keep saying, and will continue to keep saying, that I believe the Redskins will wn big on Sunday. The only nagging doubt in the back of my head concerns the right guard fill-in, which is why I was curious what Vinny Cerrato thought about his options over there. Thus, this dialog on Redskins Nation Thursday night.

Larry Michael: "Of course Randy Thomas hurt the tricep, out for the year. As we talk right now, we really don't know who's gonna be the starter. [On Wednesday], Jim Zorn [said] the starter this Sunday's probably on the team right now. Either Rinehart or Montgomery. So the work you guys did to try to bring a little depth to that offensive line during the offseason, we're gonna see if that bears fruit pretty early here, won't we?"

Vinny Cerrato: "Yeah. And you know, it was too bad that Randy got hurt. He was telling me that he got hit in the Giants game, you know, and he felt something. And then he said he felt something all week lifting weights. And then, you know, in that first quarter, when he just punched a guy in pass protection and it just popped, so maybe some things were tearing or something prior to that, I don't know.

"But yeah, we'll see the depth. I mean, Chad Rinehart took every rep during minicamp and OTAs and everything with the ones, he played with the ones in the Baltimore game and the Jacksonville preseason game, and Montgomery played the whole three quarters last week. So it's not like they haven't played."

The end. Feel better?

I'd feel better if there was actually some confidence in him from the coaches after all that time practicing with the first team...

So...... the GM was told 'all week' by his all-pro right guard that he was 'feeling something' bad in his arm, and took exactly no action at all until it popped during a game, taking Thomas out for the year? Yeah. CHEER CHEER GO REDSKINS GO SNYDER YAY!

Seriously? This is our "VP of Football Operations"?

Redskin Insiders will recall a time at the start of the last off-season when Dan Snyder handed out pink slips to many members of his front office -- mainly from the marketing and administrative support staffs -- explaining that their services were no longer required in the off-season, and besides, it would help him keep the overhead costs of running the team down to a manageable level.

With that in mind, I can only imagine how much Big Dan could save if he were to man up and fire JC, JZ and VC already.

I suspect it could start with the team psychologist responsible for massaging JC's fragile ego, and the ballerina coach responsible for training him in his throwing and footwork. We could then move to the team of apologists who dream up new excuses every week for why the football team fails to score. Next to go could be the team of lawyers who are responsible for suing all of the little old ladies who have fallen on hard times while waiting for the team to rebound from 20+ years of mediocrity, and then perhaps even the local newspaper beat reporters and other "homers" who continue to dream up any number of implausible scenarios about how JC could someday develop into a ring-bearing, pro bowl caliber QB if only he were given looser reins, more consistent coaching, better plays, better protection, taller receivers, etc., etc., ad nauseam, ad infinitum.

If the Redskins want to salvage anything worthwhile from this lost season, it’s time already to let these losers go.

I would recommend to Vinny to use the triple medicated Right Guard. His assembling of a team REALLY stinks.

Huh? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt after looking at the time of your post and just assume you're hammered. Otherwise you've never played a sport in your life and have no idea how stubborn and tough athletes are. You really think VC is going to stop Randy from playing due to a tweak in his arm?

Please. Stop. Posting.

No dude, Thomas didn't tell him "all week" that his arm was hurting. After the injury, Thomas told Cerrato that his arm had hurt all during the prior week. After the fact, dude.

You really need to read the quotes before you have your tirade.
