Lorenzo Alexander impressing again

Lorenzo Alexander is at it again.

Alexander impressed the previous two coaching staffs with his versatility on offense, defense and special teams, and Coach Mike Shanahan's crew is raving about the former lineman's work at linebacker. Alexander is making a smooth transition from a three-technique interior lineman, the position he primarily played in his first three seasons with the Redskins, to an outside linebacker in Washington's new 3-4 base front, coaches say.

Alexander also has played defensive end, as well as tight end and guard on offense, in addition to his contributions on special teams. But it seems he could be an integral part of the linebacker rotation this season. Through the first two minicamps and two sessions of organized team activities, Alexander has excelled in every facet of his new role.

"He's been awesome. The guy's awesome. The guy's unbelievable," defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said Wednesday at Redskins Park. "He's a better athlete than I would have ever guessed. If you'd told me last year he played three technique, I would have never guessed it.
"If you said he played linebacker, I would have said he played linebacker. He's 275 pounds. He's ideal size for the position. He's got good rush ability. He's unbelievably smart. He's tough as nails. I love the guy."

Alexander's ability to grasp things quickly has helped him earn an important role despite the fact that he was not drafted out of the University of California. "The transition he's made has probably taken us by surprise more than anything," Haslett said.

"He can play any position he really wants," he said.

Too damn funny. Hope they make a trade for that position, along with another O-lineman. Also, can we trade in 4 has-been receivers for a decent slot receiver?

we were just told by a Redskins' coach [Haslett] that a guy who played DT, OG, TE without establishing himself, is a STUD OLB?

Alexander has shown ability, but he has never excelled at anything.... so they keep trying him somewhere else...

I'm starting to think they're done bringing in any more significant changes. Too many practices and OTAs have passed.

Posted by: DC2AZ99 | May 29, 2010 11:50 AM | Report abuse

I think Haslett's correct -- Lo is the sort of player who can excel at that OLB position in a Steeler-style pressure defense.

Not in Blache's 4-3 containment scheme, however.

It's potentially very good news because the Skins are not deep at LB. Who knows how effective Fletcher and McIntosh will be in this new scheme? And Orakpo and Wilson are mostly pass rushers. Alexander could really help, maybe start, at one outside position.

Posted by: Samson151 | May 29, 2010 12:05 PM | Report abuse

I think they bring in another offensive lineman before the season starts -- somebody versatile who gets cut by another club.

I will say this. Some more info is needed about this moodly character. He says he is a cow and yet has made reference to his wife and "calves". Now if he were a member of the bovine species and had a wife and calves then wouldn't he be a bull? But let's go with what we got and think that mebbe what we have here is one of these new fangled fambly situations. Two lesbo cows with a bunch of calves. Artificial insemination with sperm from a sperm bank. They do a lot of that in the cattle industry you know. Not my cup of tea personally but hey, whatever floats your boat dude.

Jim Haslett confident his personnel will execute the new defense
Coach Mike Shanahan scrapped the team's successful 4-3 scheme of the previous six seasons, in part, because the Redskins produced too few turnovers.

By Washington Post editors | May 28, 2010; 10:02 AM ET
=============================
There are many NFL 4-3 teams in the top tier of turnovers. And now you negate the largest investment on the team (Haynesworth).
Shanahan is really adopting a scheme that matches the background of his Hire, Haslett, instead of adopting a scheme that matches the defensive player's abilities and experience.
Haslett was the wrong pick for the existing personnel. Skin's best nose tackle hasnt played in nearly a year and is pushing nearly 400 lbs off a severed achilles tendon.
Skins are back to a 4-3 by game 3.

Hey Diesel, Hey ChrisLarry,

Honestly, I'm not attempting to be pessimistic.
Simply have observed Alexander has been tried at three positions not shining in any, yet always receiving hope it will work out in another position.
Now Haslett has him at a 4th position ---- OLB.

Perhaps I came across harshly, if so, sorry.
Perhaps I should have merely posted, "Haven't we heard this three times before and now this is the 4th position, 4th big prediction by a Redskins coach?"

Fair enough?

This oil spill problem is starting to sound real bad. A couple of comments on it.

1. When you see video tape of that stuff gushing out on the ocean floor it looks pretty disgusting. Makes you think that long ago Ma Nature pigged out at a really bad all-you-can-eat Mexican joint and now many years later we are paying the price for her binge.

2. If Ma Nature wants to atone for her indiscretion she can punch up a Katrina-sized hurricane to blast the gulf. The reason why that would help is the following. A fart in an elevator is a disaster. Why? Because there is no dispersal. A fart in a wind tunnel is imperceptible. If Ma Nature would send a giant hurricane into the gulf it would disperse the spilled oil to the point where it is imperceptible, just like the fart in the wind tunnel. Right now it is like the fart in the elevator.

I think you're mistaken. He's excelled on special teams. He's excelled as a blocker on goal line formations. He's excelled as a backup DT (BACKUP--because he only weighs 275).

And now he's excelling as a linebacker, according to someone who should know..

How great it must be for a coach to have a guy who not only is versatile, but is a financial bargain and doesn't whine when given a new position.

And no one, I mean NO ONE is better at setting up the Gator Aide cups before the game.

parker will go when westbrook signs. hope that satisfies your jones for a vet cut.

you're right about haynesworth, he was so much happier playing in a 4-3. if only the redskins could duplicate his positive attitude and strong work ethic from last year. or...

maybe haynesworth is negating haynesworth.

maybe he can forget his stats and think about winning. he already signed the biggest deal he is ever going to sign and collected on most of it.

maybe he's so talented he would excel in a 3-4. any doubters on that point? maybe he can play end. his teammates say it's on the table. maybe he could be a difference maker for the redskins in 2010 if that's what he chooses to do. and it is his choice.

We are a team built of players that are not ideal, but could work out. A lot of hoping going around. All these changes are making this season very intreging. I cant wait! There's no telling where our strengths will be, or weaknesses. We should beat the Cowgirls based on the fact that they have no idea what to expect.

I'm sure we will add a few June 1st casualties, and lose a few that we thought were safe. They now have a good idea where we need to improve and who isnt fitting in.

Patric Crayton would be a good pick-up and boy would he love to get revenge on opening day. But it would be great to add another OLineman.

agreed. the core roster is in place, and the main questions for now are who gets cut on the way to 53 players, and who earns practice time with the starters.

not saying this is how I expected it to look six months ago, but regardless of how it unfolds, we're starting to resemble a team trying to rebuild while improving on the W-L record from a year ago... which to me is a huge improvement over medium, celebrity coach 2.0, gatormouth, etc.

still, I wouldn't exclude the possibility of one or two more vets being signed, and of course some drama involving the elephant who is out of the room.

Crayton is a semi-interesting possibility, but he doesn't have much control over what happens to him right now down in cowtown.

Jones wants a trade, whereas our modus operandi under BA/MS mostly has been to pick up vets for cheap contracts as a stopgap.

so no, don't think that one will happen, at least not soon. per the post above, agreed w/ DC2AZ99 that the roster is largely in place.

although the whole business w/ Moss introduces some additional uncertainty regarding the WR lineup.

One of the few highlights of last season was the 'Skins dismantling Denver and Lorenzo made a couple of great plays in that game, which were critical as, until Orton got injured, the momentum shifted back and forth.

Alexander is a player that's hard to dislike and gives maximum effort. I would love to see a few more players with his attitude.

I said I hope it genuinely works out this time.
But I do have a memory. That does not make me negative necessarily either. And this is the fourth time we've been told by 'Skins coaches how Alexander is going to be a good one [OG, TE, DT]

Cork, you are correct, he has done well on Special Teams, but he has played on a team the last two years that went 12-20 and did not make a significant mark.

Hey, for the record, I would be tickled if this team finally figured out what Alexander can do best.

The point being that just about anything can be neutralized with sufficient dispersal. Oh, and you get an 'F' for the day also for not recognizing that my post was made tongue-in-cheek.

******************************************

the following is from yesterday's brian westbrook interview on the nflpa's website. note that the redskins are the only team that westbrook has one positive thing to say about.

Q: How did your recent visit with the Washington Redskins go?

A: It went really well. I enjoyed them and the coaching staff. I’d love to be a part of that organization. They have a quality organization—I just have to find out if I can fit into their system.

Q: Being from the Washington, D.C. area and playing your high school ball at DeMatha, how special would it be if you were to play here?

A: Of course it would be special to play in your hometown, where you were born and raised and still live. Of course it would be special to be on a team with a winning tradition.

Q: How have your other team visits gone?

A: We visited with the Broncos and with St. Louis as well. Right now, we’re just trying to find the right fit, and we’ll see where it goes from there.

Can't they "squish" the pipe? Must have some robots capable of flattening out the pipe ... and maybe another to fold the flattened part or roll it to seal it.

Or what about inserting explosives into the pipe, feeding a charge down a half mile or so, blowing it up, and allow all the weight of the ocean bed to stop the leak?

I mean, I've got a handful of suggestions, all of which seem more feasible than "junk shot" or "top hat" or even "top kill"

Why not give "top gun" a try?

Or "jimmy hat," where they place a condom over the end of the pipe and unveil a huge portrait of the Queen of England naked. That should slow the flow.
