Donovan McNabb, Albert Haynesworth will play in preseason opener vs. Buffalo

Quarterback Donovan McNabb will make his Redskins debut Friday night and Albert Haynesworth also will play in the preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills at FedEx Field, Coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday at Redskins Park.

Shanahan plans for McNabb, acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles in April for draft picks, to open the game with the first-team offense and play "somewhere in the area of 15 to 18 plays." With Richard Bartel (hamstring) sidelined, John Beck could get some snaps along with Rex Grossman at backup.

While working closely in practice with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, MCNabb has increasingly become more comfortable in the Redskins' version of the West Coast scheme.

"We've been out here and making some big plays and spreading the ball around, getting guys involved," McNabb said. "But obviously, week to week, things have to change. You throw different wrinkles in to change things up and kind of keep the defense on their heels. But we need to get out here and really make some plays."

Friday's game will be the first of McNabb's 12-year career in which he is not a member of the Eagles. After participating in the entire offseason program with the Redskins and training camp, McNabb is pleased with his progress.

"Once you make mistakes and you realize what the mistake was, then you eliminate them," McNabb said. "And that's for any player."

Haynesworth is only getting started in the team's 3-4 scheme. The two-time all-pro defensive lineman skipped all but one day of the offseason program and was not permitted to participate in full practice until he passed a conditioning test.

In only his fifth practice, Haynesworth on Wednesday lined up as the first-team nose tackle after starter Maake Kemoeatu rested because of the heat. Kemoeatu, who appeared woozy, received assistance from teammates Tuesday evening as he walked from the field into complex's main building.

"There's no problem" with Kemoeatu, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said. "He was tired yesterday. He didn't eat breakfast and he didn't eat lunch. He was tired. He didn't drink a lot of fluids. He got cramped up."

Kemoeatu's day off opened the door for Haynesworth, who is listed as the second-string nose but is expected to start at right defensive end this season. "Well, when the No. 1 goes down, the No. 2 guy comes up," Shanahan said. "He had a good practice today, it looked like.

"He got a number of reps in there today. We cut practice a little short, obviously, two days before the game. But I was pleased with the practice and the effort. We're just getting started. He's only been practicing [fully] for [three days]. So it's a process. He'll get a chance to play, along with a number of other players."

Shanahan declined to provide many details about his approach for the preseason opener because he had not discussed the game plan with the team. Many players said the starters would get a maximum of 20 snaps.

In addition to discussing McNabb's role and Haynesworth's situation, Shanahan also said safety Chris Horton (groin tightness) "probably will be out." Horton and Landry (injection in toe) were both limited in practice but "Landry will play. Horton will not," Shanahan said.

As with many coaches in preseason openers, Shanahan plans to keep things simple in preparation for paring down the roster.

"Everything's pretty basic," Shanahan said. "There's no game plan. We're just trying to evaluate the players and kind of get a feel on how hard they play and try not to make it too complicated."

Torn between trying to evaluate players while not revealing too much of the game plan, Shanahan said he struggles to find the right balance in the preseason.

"It's hard. You don't prioritize it, it's just hard," he said. "You don't want to show too much and at the same time you want to evaluate players. You want to see your players play hard and not miss too many assignments.

"Obviously, everybody wants to look good, but not at the expense of not evaluating everybody. So that first game's a little bit tougher because you're wanting to see everybody play. You're not game planning. But it's sure nice to be going against somebody else."

Moe, looks good. I personally hate trying to convert players to a new position, their is such a huge difference from being a back peddling corner to a read and react safety. The only person we had on our team that I realistically thought could make that switch was S Springs, due to his overall ability. I think Barnes might be a bit to green for a move like that, but out of our current personnel he would be best suited for that move in the future dudes a hit stick.

I like Hasletts scheme my question is who is our oj Atogwe? Or do we not have one and will have to look to other positions on the field for the production he brought to stlouie.

Remember how GG played Springs the first year or two. Springs lined up at CB, FS, SS, LB depending on the "package" called. I think Rogers will fill a similar role in this defense.

Mark the Mask used the angle of Zorro not having to move when he moved on to write an article about him. From the article:

He said he wouldn't necessarily be more choosy about what he would be getting himself into if another NFL head coaching chance comes along.

Christ on a crutch. How delusional are you to even be thinking something like this? After eye-averting episodes like swinging gate and getting stripped of play calling responsibility, Zorro would be lucky if the chance to coach HS JV came up.

REDSKINS CAMP DIARY, AUGUST 11, 2010

Dear Diary

As we move ever closer to the first game of the pre-season Friday night, the coaching staff appears to be making sure that no one takes it lightly -- despite the fact that it will be the first meaningless game of what could be many more to follow this season.

I mean we’ve been hearing it all week about how everyone just needs to go all out and put on a good show -- by playing hard but not too hard -- if only to encourage fans to go out and buy up the rest of the club level tickets for this season, along with lots of AH92 jerseys, and those leftover hotdogs and stale beer that we got from the Verizon Center after the health inspectors came through and condemned the place.

So even though it’s only the first pre-season game, our coaches have done a full scouting report on the Bills -- and developed a unique package of plays for both sides of the line that will:

1. Allow our fans to see just a hint of the real potential of our team, while also

2.Hiding our real capabilities and intentions until the start of the regular season on Sept. 13 at home against Dallas.

I don’t think I’m giving too much away when I say that fans should probably tune in early Friday night if they want to see any of our presumed starters this season --since they won’t likely play for more than a series or two before turning things over to the backups and scrubs. All we’re really expecting from our starters Friday night is an inventory and dress out of their equipment -- just to make sure no one has lost anything yet.

Fans can probably also expect to see a few trick plays on Friday night that they’ll never see again when the real season starts. For example, we’ve been practicing a special “swinging gate” play that has become a bit of a Redskins tradition. We also have a new play where our running back grabs the ball, takes two steps to the left and falls down without so much as a hint of contact -- which is designed to spotlight CP26’s unique talents and capabilities.

On the other side of the line, we have a new play where AH92, our defensive nose tackle, falls down in the middle of a drive clutching his knee and gasping for air like a beached whale. After the team is forced to take a time out and the medics come in and wheel him off, he comes back later in the same series -- a real trick play designed to keep everyone wondering if he was only faking his earlier injury. We also have a great play where CR22 steps up and almost picks off a pass in mid-flight -- only to bobble and drop it.

If any of you are unavoidably delayed and miss the first half -- I wouldn’t even bother watching the second half, since anyone you see playing then probably won’t be here when the regular season rolls around.

See ya Friday!

Your BFF!!

Sirius NFL radio is at Skins camp this afternoon and it's been a heck of a show. Jim Miller and host say they would put money on at least 8 wins for the Skins, acknowledging that yes, everyone's optimistic at this point in all NFL camps, almost to a fault. But there's serious buzz about the Skins' camp...by far, the most improved team in the NFC East. Shanahan is being smart by going full speed but not full-contact tackling, thus avoiding player injury but still working on quickness and explosion. Haslett just had a great segment. Can't wait until Friday! HAIL!

From Mat Moseley's Skins Camp Confidential:

If a player doesn’t hustle between drills in practice, Shanahan will call their names after practice and tell them to run extra sprints.

Wednesday, 8/11/10, 3:05 PM: The players gather around Shanny for the calling of names.

Shanny: "Albert."

Shanny: "Albert?"

Shanny: "Albert!"

A meek voice from the crowd: "Albert's taking a potty break, Mr Shanahan."

The coaches have seen what they will get with JB, and want to keep him ready for the regular season. LL may be a question mark for Haslett, so he wants to put him out there.

well,
i would have to say that drinking guiness, a very light beer in caloric make up, during a skins game would put you at about a twelve pack. if you go with an imperial stout, if you kick back 5 or 6 during the game, that would be impressive. if you are drinking a macro lite lager/pilsner, get an 18 pack.
