A Documentary Worth Watching

I know how pumped you guys are for the Hall of Fame stuff this weekend - and definitely check out the coverage of the festivities in The Post. But wanted to let you know about something pretty cool going on at Comcast regarding Art Monk.

Monk, reclusive and introverted for much of playing career, with limited interaction with the media, allowed Comcast exclusive access to him for a week straight. I have seen snippets of the show and spoke to several people who have seen the entire product and it is getting rave reviews. Given the limited public persona of the subject of the show, it should prove eye-opening for most of you guys, as well as to the schlubs like me.

The show is entitled: "My Life 365: Art Monk," and airs at 9 on Friday. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Art Monk was the only Redskin on my walls as a kid. He was Thelonious Monk's Second cousin (I guess that's right). Some amazing talent in that family tree!

Seems like this is a good blog entry to repeat this post ...


Second down: Art Monk and Winning in the NFC East
Continuing my series on Art Monk and his upcoming induction into the HOF. (part 1 posted under: Blades to Have Knee Surgery at 4:40 yesterday)

Monk was a great possession receiver, which is essential to team success. But there is little doubt that the competition in the NFC East created a premium for Monk's talents. Through the heart of Monk's career, the NFC East may well have been the toughest defensive conference in NFL history.

Monk's Redskins faced 3 first ballot HOF defensive players twice a year for much of his career (Randy White, Reggie White and Lawrence Taylor). These guys made it impossible to succeed with only deep threat' type of receivers. Possession passes were hugely important. We all know what happened to Joe Theismann when he tried to go deep against the Giants on MNF. Neil Lomax played for the Cards in the same division. His fate is less well known. He retired at 29 and had a hip replacement shortly after.

Some will wince and recall the 'body bag game' when the Skins played Philly in 1990. In that game, the Eagles pass rush knocked out every Skins QB and a rookie RB wound up finishing the game at QB (anyone recall who that famous Redskin was?). However, in the playoffs that year in Philly, it was Monk who scored the first TD that put the Skins ahead to stay (replays of that TD show the refs could have called multiple penalties on the guys trying to cover Monk).

In 1985, the top 4 QBs with the most sack yards were all from the NFC East. In 1988, it was the top 3 spots. Several other years weren't much better. Monk's ability to make short, possession plays was huge against these great pass rushing teams. Not only did it move the chains, but it reduced the number of difficult 'down and distance' situations. Monk's possession game led to fewer sacks, holding penalties, QB injuries and turnovers.

With Darrell Green elected, 4 of the 5 teams from the NFC East have a 1st ballot defensive HOF player from that era! As of now, there are only 6 defensive players from Monk's era who were 1st ballot in the HOF. 4 from the NFC East and 2 from the Skins main NFC foes (Ronnie Lott of SF and Mike Singletary of the Bears). Bruce Smith and Rod Woodson will likely become first ballot guys from the AFC, but the point is crystal clear. The NFC East had as many dominant defensive players as the rest of the league combined.
Monk's receiving style allowed the Skins offense to run lower risk plays. Fewer 3rd and longs, better balance and ball control were all aided significantly by Monk's play. And that was an essential part of winning in a very tough division against some terrific defenses. Bottom line, Art Monk was uniquely valuable to his team's success.

The Redskins could have drafted JC in the second round..maybe third(if they had a draft choice. They traded up to get him..later in the first round. That has proved to be a mistake. JC had one big year..and that was because auburn was a great overall team..and he had all day to throw.
HE DOES NOT HAVE THE ATHLETIC ABILITY NOR FOOTBALL IQ TO IMROVE IN THE CRITICAL AREAS.
Trying to get Farve and a 12 million dollar contract is just plain stupid. Put Collins with the first string..he will do the job..and draft a new QB next year.
Campbell...is slow afoot, has a long slow delivery(terrible for the west coast offense)DOES NOT HAVE TOUCH ON HIS PASSES, AND LED THE LEAGUE IN FUMBLES.


...sorry folks, this was the cooment I found that was the basis of my commentary earlier. I never called anyone on RI racist.

wow not really, some people just don't see racism when a scientist says "black hole". And have you ever noticed that the only racism talked about in America is against black people? There are minorities that have gotten it much worse, including Native Americans, of which this particular "white person" is 1/8th.


and another point, the great thing about this country is that people are free to be racist if they want. You can hate white people or black people, I don't care, I'd rather know so I know you're an idiot instead of someone trying to hide it.

Or maybe he's making something out of nothing. Just because you perceive it to be there doesn't mean it actually is.

And for the record, I don't doubt that there is still plenty of racism around - and probably some towards JC - but that doesn't make racism the majority opinion among his most ardent critics.

Statements like this are plain wrong (not in the ethical sense, but literal and evidential):

"It's one thing the say that Campbell makes slow reads or plays slow...that's honest football criticism, but to say he can't play the position because he's slow is a rascist statement."

or

"Oh...by the way, if Brett Favre were black, would he even have a chance to be in the Hall with a TD/INT ratio like his?

C'mon be honest...."


This final quote: "People were ready to run Ely Manning out of town..." in itself goes against his whole argument that criticism of being considered "slow" as racist. White quarterbacks are run out of town just as viciously as black quarterbacks, so I don't buy his argument. Not one bit.

The Truth misses an important point on racism. People do change. Some have discarded racism altogether. Others have moderated. Also importantly, it is what gets passed on from one generation to the next.

Example: there are a lot less homophobes now than 20 years ago. Or even 5 years ago.

People like SnyderSucks are ignorant, even if the blog moniker has some truth to it.

Tom Brady's thought process after the snap is def faster than JC! There were real tobacco pouches made out of that material! You're ignorant.

I dunno, I did some shots of apple cider vinegar, and I'm now experiencing some extreme cramping. Did I not follow the directions correctly?

On the plus side, my hamstrings feel awesome.

Thank Atheism for Redskins Insider or I wouldn't know how I felt about racism, salt lick BBQ, or The Truth.

all swamped today, Monk is an all time fave for me, he was the first Redskin I ever got to meet in Person, it was at a Pettiebones Sportsbar way back when i was a cubscout, you saw the guy, no helmet or pads he was very... human.

Mark Schlereth lived in my nieghborhood back in 91-93. It was called Fox Mill Estates, Herndon Va. Not big homes at all like 1700sq ft. I think Ed Simmons lived nearby too because I always used to see him at the local Giant. It was always fun to see redskins through out the area. I miss those days.

"Man you guys wanna see some racism, go hit up the Atlanta craigslist Rants & Raves, straight racist venom all day long. I really thought they had progressed when I moved down here from Fairfax Co. in 96' but it still feels like 1858 down here. Very little progress. Why does the majority of the south have to play right into the stereotypes that the rest of the nation has for them."


1) The Truth says that that is the internet where people say anything.

2) The Truth says the most racist person he has ever met in the south was a transplant from Rhode Island. The Truth says this was The Truth's neighbor growing up and the guy was horrendous.

3) The Truth does in fact think Brett Favre sucks. The Truth says JC > Favre this year.

Yeah - Herndon/Chantilly area was great back when the old Redskin's park was by Dulles - worked right next to it - Ricky Sanders used to stop by our break room to hit on the ladies that worked at our call center; Mark Rypien shopped at the Giant by my apartments - Skins held their 87 strike votes in the conference room right above our offices...
