CBSSports is reporting the skins signed DJ Hackett today

Posted by: TWISI | August 5, 2009 8:35 AM | Report abuse

But "youth movement" says to me you're putting in younger guys who lack experience but have an upside. I associate that term with taking your lumps today in the name of being really good there tomorrow. You can't say that about anyone on the Redskins line, save for Heyer.

Say what you will about the likes of Dockery, Bridges, and Williams...those guys are nothing more than stop-gaps.

Besides, the Redskins seldom have enough draft picks to have have a true "youth movement".

next up Brownwood (known aliases: Debbie Downer, Prince of Pessimism, Doctor Dictionary, King of the English Language) will debate Bill Clinton, himself and all foolish takers on what the real definition of "is" is. Jesus, we're a week from our first preseason game and you want to play dueling thesauruses.

Cindy, Jason- any updates on AH/Malcolm Kelly's knees, Kevin Barnes and the 4th/5th WR battles (i.e., Mitchell, Eloi, Hagans, Shelton) would be most bumptious. I'm sure brownwood will let me know that was used out of context but it sounds cool.

NFC East news from PFT:

Giants, Eli striking a long-term deal
Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2009 7:57 AM ET
After months of rumors that the Giants were poised to lock up quarterback Eli Manning for the long haul, it finally has happened.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX, Manning and the team are on the verge of agreeing to a six-year extension worth nearly $100 million.

We're hearing that the deal is expected to include $35 million in guaranteed money.

Factoring in the $9.4 million in base salary that Manning already was due to earn in 2009, the annual average of the seven-year arrangement likely will exceed $15 million.

Though Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers will earn more this season under his one-year franchise tender, Manning's contract represents the biggest multi-year average that any NFL player has received.

On the surface, Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's seven-year, $100 million deal comes close, but the reality is that it's only (only?) a four-year, $48 million package. And the $102 million deal given last year to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger covers eight seasons.

As our own Tom Curran pointed out last month, the Manning deal likely will be the first big-money domino to fall in an ongoing string of record-setting quarterback contracts.

Next up? Philip Rivers. Then Tom Brady. Then Eli's big brother, again.

Sorry I have a realistic view of the Skins, Notorious. I just call it like I see it. Getting scrap heap guys to "build" your offensive line is nothing to pat the FO on the back about. And I don't apologize for calling them out on it, either.

The theory behind bringing in Hackett is that the Redskins will have a fixed (but undetermined)number of injuries in pre-season. We know that Hackett will have one of them. So, that's one less real player who will get injured.

Devin out makes an opening for Kelly to move up the depth chart. As for the backup WR's I'm liking HAgans & Mitchell so far. Hopefully they both can play special teams.

They are so obsessed about obtaining WRs and TEs- none of it will matter without an O-line. Even signing Runyan would make some sense, if for nothing else than backup stopgap bo-dap. We could have TO, Randy Moss and Chad Johnson (jeeziz, the karma), wouldn't mean sh*t to a tree without that o-line, I said that O-line, what he say, I mean , that O-line..

Brown, you never know the front office may have somewhat gotten smarter than you think. Meaning - they may have decided to focus on one of the two lines this year (DL/LB corps) and will focus on the OL next year. Granted I'd have switched the two (i.e. done OL at least partially this year, if not all of it), but that's just my opinion. They also got help in the other areas of little depth (CB via development and draft, S through Moore's development, WR through Thomas/Kelly's development, etc.).

The only stupid part of this delay in addressing the OL is the fact that the OL is integral to everything that is being evaluated this year - JC, sophomore WR/TE, etc. The defense really doesn't need evaluation because despite little pressure or takeaways it was quite good, especially when you consider what it was handed by the offense.

One can only hope Zorn will be better in picking plays that go for 8 yards when you need 6, and not pick those that go for 5 1/2, and that when given the opportunity, the receivers won't drop balls continuously and themselves have more awareness of the first down marker. If those two occur, with a below average OL (it's bound to be at some point in the season with its age), we still might be able to get some points.

Absolutely right, Moe. Far and away Eli is the most overrated QB in the NFL.

Dude isn't even one of the top 2 QBs in his family, much less the league. He's got no Plax to throw to this year, so we're about to see how good he is without a clear cut #1 receiver. I've always thought of him as just a cut above average and nothing more.

T.O. sucks at life...from PFT:

Nielsen expert T.O. is miffed at Jim Rome
Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2009 9:06 AM ET
Though they've yet to get into a full-blown Twitter catfight (or an in-studio wrestling match), a feud is brewing between Jim Rome and Bills receiver Terrell Owens.

Rome ripped Owen's unreality show in legendary fashion during Tuesday's Jim Rome Is Burning on ESPN, based on the recent report from John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal that the much-hyped debut of The T.O. Show landed at No. 798 in the cable television ratings for the week, tied with a 5:00 a.m. showing of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Rome concluded his take by saying to Owens, "Smell ya later."

Owens took to Twitter to respond, in a three-part attack.

Part 1: "FYI: jim rome talks bad about me b/c i wn't do his show!! lmpo!! let him keep talkin, still wn't do it, we'll c whn i hv season 2!!"

(Translation: "Jim Rome talks bad about me because I won't do his show! Let him keep talking, I still won't do it. We'll see when I have season two!")

Part 2: "hey jimmy romeo! sorry u cn't discouraged me or my show, i'm 2 strong 4 u & plus grandmama told me there r people n the world like u! ;-)"

(Translation: "Hey, Jimmy Romeo! Sorry you can't discourage me or my show. I'm too strong for you and plus grandmama told me there are people in the world like you!")

Part 3: "so jimmy romeo! yo homes, smell u ltr!! keep the hatorade coming! ;-)"

(Translation: "So Jimmy Romeo! Yo holmes, smell you later! Keep the Haterade coming!")

Meanwhile, Ourand has reported via Twitter that the second episode of The T.O. Show tied for 862nd in the weekly cable ratings, placing it just behind a 3:30 a.m. showing of Brandy and Mr. Whiskers on The Disney Channel.

Owens has offered up a self-serving explanation for the situation, also via Twitter: "those ratings r misleading, it's based on a special box tht calculates those ratings n which every household doesn't have."

Right, not every household has the "special box." But the "special box" is placed in enough houses so that statistically reliable projections can be made about who's watching a given show.

And who isn't.

Regardless of whether and to what extent the numbers are accurate, they are universally accepted in the television industry as the tool for determining which shows are successful.

And which ones aren't.

But in the inherently delusional world that is T.O. Land, the player apparently has been able to convince himself that he has sufficiently saturated the homes that don't have the "special box."

Perhaps because people with "special boxes" are "haters."

scampbell1975 you're right. I think at this stage it's not a bad idea to give the young OL reps and game experience. The skins need to know what they have on the team. When did the skins get Pete Kendell? Wasn't it like around the 3rd preseason game? A veteran OL will have time to adjust to the scheme if signed around the first cut.

Ball placed at the 10-yard line, offense vs. defense.

* Santana Moss puts a move on Kevin Barnes and is wide open in the end zone. He cayches
* Campbell looks right, no one is open. So he shifts left and sees an opening. Kareem Moore and Reed Doughty close fast, and Campbell is stopped short of the goal line.
* Good blocking on Campbell's delayed handoff to Marcus Mason, who cuts right and goes through an opening for a nice gain.
* Colt Brennan's first option is not open, so he races through a wide hold up-field. LaRon Landry closes fast, and Brennan slows up near the goal line.
* Brennan's pass to Chris Cooley in the end zone is off the mark. The ball bounces off Cooley's outstretched hands, incomplete.
* Todd Collins looks for Moss in the back of the end zone, but his throw is too high, even for the athletic Moss to reach.
* Anthony Alridge makes another cutback on a run to the right, but Chris Horton is there to meet him.
* Collins looks for Cooley in the back of the end zone. Once again, his throw is too high for Cooley to reach.
* Collins's pass to Antwaan Randle El across the middle of the field is deflected by Rocky McIntosh.

Juqua Parker busted for pot
Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2009 10:20 AM ET
In most years, the arrest rate involving NFL players drops dramatically during training camp, when teams have the highest level of regular access to the guys who might, when left to their own devices, get into trouble.

But that's not the case for the Eagles, where starting defensive end Juqua Parker has been arrested for possession of marijuana during the early stages of preseason practice at Lehigh University.

According to the Morning Call, Parker was a passenger in a vehicle that had been stopped for a traffic violation. He allegedly was found to be in possession of a small amount of marijuana.

If the allegation is accurate, it lends further credence to the reality that, once a player clears the early-season urine test for substances of abuse, the player has smoke as much pot as he wants until a month or so before the next season's test.

And it would be naive to think that marijuana smoking isn't prevalent in the NFL and other pro sports.

Eli is being paid 100 million, but he lives in New York, which means he's actually making 50 million (cost of living)..If he lived in Zapumachea, Brazil (deep in the Amazon) he would be making 13.1 trillion dollars..Which is better??

The only sport that I think does not drug test for pot, and has no rule against its use is the NBA.

If eli manning is worth 100 million, that makes Jason Campbell worth 97 million. I want to see JC17 succeed but even I don't think he is worth 97 million.

If Eli is worth $100 million, then Peyton is worth the entire net worth of the Indianapolis Colts.

Practice is over; reports are that Campbell had his best day so far. We'll update you as soon as the guys finish with their interviews.

last week, in the 2009 inaugural edition of ZEKE'S UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES, I said I liked the Roydell Williams signing. A lot. Thought he had a real shot at being a solid #2 WR.

Didn't take long for that call to go up flames.

Depends on what your using to determine contract value.

Summarizing...D.J. Hackett and Michael Marquardt join the team; Vaka Manupuna and Roydell Williams depart.
The offense looks much better but, according to Tanner Cooley's tweet, "was running gassers after practice."

Joe Bugel on the possibility of Chad Rinehart starting the season opener: "I wouldn't have a problem with that."

Did Buges say that with a straight face. If so, then he definitely has a career in tournament poker.

brownwood, after 5 days of training camp, what "realistic" Cardinals fan thought the Cards would be in the Super Bowl much less leading the game with less than a minute to play? You never can tell with sports. That's why they play the games. Brighten up dude. It's only August 5.

I usually roll my eyes when you pat yourself on the back for something you “called” earlier…..nice to see someone that is “fair and balanced” in regards to themselves. Good stuff. Greg should award you some bonus pts for that. Just please don’t disappoint me here with another A. Boldin rhetoric.

"It's an adventure. RT @JReidPost Bugel on possibility of Rinehart starting season opener: "I wouldn't have a problem with that." Ah, okay"

JReid, can you give us a quick take on Rhinehart. I have heard he hasn't looked that great but some comments on here have indicated that he's looked OK. In your tweet you sound skeptical. What's the deally yo?

Tanner Cooley is just riding the heels of his brother. What a loser.
