Rocky McIntosh launches a Riddell campaign
In addition to taking a swipe at Albert Haynesworth, Rocky McIntosh also announced his team's Riddell Campaign this week on the LaVar and Dukes Show. That means they're going to hit people hard. Or often. Or often and hard. With their heads. And/or their helmets. Or maybe their helmeted heads.
"Man, it's take no prisoners," he said. "We're going on a Riddell Campaign. We're bringing it to cities around here: Philadelphia, New York, all these guys, man, and we ain't taking no prisoners. It's cutthroat, man. [Mike Shanahan] wants to win, he wants to win big, he wants to stop the run, and we're gonna stop the run and bring it on back."
Someone's been telling these guys about Philadelphia and New York. Here's what DeAngelo Hall told Comcast SportsNert's Ivan Carter a few hours later when asked about the season opener against Dallas:
"C'mon man, the Cowboys? That's what us Redskins fans, that's what we live and die, we live and die that Cowboys game, the Giants and Eagles. That first one man, that's gonna kind of set the tone for the season. That's gonna set the tone for the season. The world's gonna see that we're a new team. A new team, new faces, new personalities."
Hall has always been a very shy and reserved man in my experience, reluctant to make any sort of brash news-making statements, but something must have snapped inside him on Wednesday night, because he also said this:
"We feel like with this team we're assembling right now and the coaching staff and the guys we have, we feel like we can be a force to be reckoned with....Nobody's out there coasting, trying to conserve anything. We're all out there trying to impress these coaches and let 'em know what we can do. Guys are ready, guys are ready. And like I said, I still stand behind my statement, we're gonna win a lot of games. We're gonna win a lot of games this season and we're gonna make these fans happy."
Someone please burn my entire DeAngelo Hall archive of posts if things don't go well this season. I don't think I'll be able to bear the evidence.
