Alridge Plans to Practice Tuesday

As the Redskins practiced on the fields below, Anthony Alridge emerged from the team's facility Sunday, sat in the shade and watched his teammates from afar.

"It's killing me not being out there with them," he said.

Alridge hasn't been on the field since spraining a toe during the team's intrasquad scrimmage Aug. 8. For a guy who's far from a guarantee to make the 53-man roster, he knows missing more than a week of camp has done little to help his cause. (Today will be a lighter day at Redskins Park, with no practice this morning. Instead, players were expected to spend the morning in team meetings, then hit the practice field in the afternoon.)

But the second-year back out of Houston did have some good news to report Sunday afternoon. After walking around Redskins Park with a boot on his right foot for the past week, he says he expects to be boot-free today and hopes to return to practice Tuesday morning. He even hopes to be ready to go Saturday for the preseason game against the Steelers, but we'll see later this week whether coaches agree.

Alridge, listed at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, is trying to make the team as a punt returner and a speed back, a situational runner who could complement Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts.

On Sunday morning, the team wore pads for the first time since their game at Baltimore. In the afternoon, though, they were back in shells. Portis and offensive tackle Chris Samuels had a light afternoon; they attended practice without helmets and did not participate in team drills.

Sounds like a nice guy, but, unless he really does something spectacular - and holds on to the ball - he's missed his opportunity. Maybe he can go to the practice squad, but putting running backs on the developmental roster is not a good strategy. I think I read somewhere that running backs are the most often signed away from practice squads...

Redskins already got too many at the "nice guy" position. Need more at different positions -- bad azz, mean motherstomper, whacko headhunter, etc. (With "character", of course). You can sign 5'9", 175 pound, nice guys off the street.

Hey turd_evaluator. The trolls are after your azz. Kiss it a sweet goodbye.

One of many unsung internet heroes who are almost entirely misunderstood. Contrary to popular belief, many trolls are actually quite intelligent. Their habitual attacks on forums is usually a result of their awareness of the pretentiousness and excessive self-importance of many forum enthusiasts. As much as people may hate trolls, they are highly effective - their actions bring much of the stupidity of other forum users out into the great wide open.

"..the way you do that is you trade the #1 pick before the draft."


I did not know that.

I now know why so few MLB teams trade picks.

Kids coming out of high school want to get paid years before they are even ready to make a return on the investment.

College baseball players want a lot of upfront money or they'll go back to college.

You trade picks for somebody you later can't sign, and the sound volume is turned up on the ridiculing laugh track of your life.

They should show the agents the finger and slot those kids in an NBA style payscale.

Then limit the number of rounds of drafting and allow tons of guys to try out for whatever team wants their services.

It would make the MLB draft infinitely more interesting than the watching paint drying episode that it is.

But this is a football blog, so I'll shut up now.

Yeah, this poor schmoe has already blown his chance this year, he just doesn't realize it yet. He is dead weight right now. A marginal bubble player simply cannot afford any injury whatsoever that impacts his time of the field.

He'd have to absolutely blow up everyone from here on out to make it at this point, and considering the Steelers and Patriots are coming up, that is a tall order.

What if a reporter twitted the Dolphins were running an offense formation with Ronnie Brown @ QB? What if a reporter twitted VY was taking most of the reps for the Titans right before his 1st start in league against us?

If a second year WR is one of the bright spots of a game by catching a 13 yarder from Collins. And he does so with "instinct" versus doing what he was told by the WR Coach.

Is "Hanie" the Bears "Colt"? Will Bears fans long for Hanie (or Kyle Orton) if Cutler throws, say, 20 TDs and 20 INTs this year (Cutler's year-to-year TDs/INTS: 9/5, 20/14, 25/18)?

Kevin Barnes- Everyone remember him making someone puke? Good, those were his 15 minutes.

Justin Tryon- Hmmmm...... Me thinks Darrell Green just lost his word meaning much at all when judging talent. This guy is a bum, I stopped counting all the times this kid got roasted. HE was the Weakest link.

From all the posts about the O-line on here from the regulars, I was expecting a our QB's to be destroyed after this game. They were actually a bright spot.

There are Posters on here hating on Cooley and who have called on us to trade Cooley because we have Davis. I hope each one of you who thinks that just ate crow after Davis's performance.

I was really surprised when I heard Sonny mention during the pre-game show on Thursday that Chase is pushing Colt for the 3rd QB position. I thought for sure Chase was going to be cut. Colt really needs to sure improvement during his practice time.

Cant see Collins being cut.. He is the only bonafide NFL QB on the team (oddly the last skins QB to be the NFL player of the month in 18 years).

The NFL trade deadline is 8 weeks away... Snyder knows JC's value is no more than a second round pick from what happened last March... It will be interesting to see what Snyder does with JC if the Skins are still pathetic around mid October (pre deadline).

For this same reason, JC probably opens the regular season even if he is beat out in preseason because Snyder needs to raise his value, if possible. But it could lower JC's value also...

My guess, if the Skins are in last place right before the deadline.. Snyder will deal JC to get something in return for the high picks he traded to select him in the first round back in 2005. Otherwise, JC heads for Free Agency and Snyder gets nothing.
The only upside for Snyder (other than JC playing surprisingly well in the first 4 weeks) is if an NFL team loses a starter or backup QB to injury... Then Snyder may get more than a 2nd round pick for JC, before the deadline.

I usually enjoy reading your posts, so please don't take this the wrong way... but I think your tinfoil hat might be a little tight this morning.

Snyder has never had trouble running through QBs, whether they're drafted with 1st round picks (e.g. Ramsey) or friends with the Ol Ball Coach (e.g. Wuerful). He never gets value back for them.

But how is a QB that set the franchise record for passes without a pick and scored NFC Offensive Player of the Week last year not a bonafide NFL QB?

Posted by: Alan4 | August 17, 2009 11:32 AM | Report abuse

Ummm, why would anybody trade for JC now? that makes zero sense, even if he starts the year well he's a free agent next year and everyone knows snyder doesn't want him so just wait and you can sign him for free instead of wasting a pick trading for him, only we would do something that stupid, and nobody offered above a 3rd for him last year anyway, a second would never happen.

Nobody's taking JC (I don't believe) and certainly no one is offering anyone better.

I don't have a problem keeping TC, but believe we should develop one or both of the young guys. I'm partial to Colt, but if Chase is better that's fine.

Posted by: DikShuttle | August 17, 2009 11:39 AM | Report abuse

30 other NFL GM's wouldnt give more than a 3rd round pick for JC last spring. I would say thats a good indicator of their opinion of him as a bonafide NFL starter.
And if you only throw 3 completions over 40 yards for 16 games (YACs included).. your interception percentage tends to be much lower..

All you Redskins fans who are so sure youwerethisclose to getting Cutler? Total BS. Yes, Washington was competitive, and the 'Skins would have done whatever it took to get Cutler. But once McDaniels decided Orton was his man -- even though Washington's first-round pick would have been the 13th overall, five slots ahead of Chicago's -- the contest was over. The 'Skins were out of it....

Hey guys.... This is sort of off topic and random but I think Vinny should be proactive and contact the Jets...

The Jets are lacking depth at the DE position and this recent suspension of Shaun Ellis isn't helping their cause. Maybe the skins should offer Andre Carter for an Offensive Tackle and more???

Jarmon has been a sweet surprise and Orakpo appears to be set more as DE than OSL after all (after what I saw in the first preseason game). If we have a girth of DE's, and Andre Carter is worth a lot more to another team, I think a trade would be a gutsy/productive move in addressing our weaknesses!

Just a thought...

Typically I'm more critical than anyone on here of the Skins and they have done everything to deserve it. What I don't get though is the sudden shock and overreaction everyone is having after one preseason game.

My reactions to the game:

JC looked mediocre - no surprise, he is mediocre

Offense was unproductive, no big plays, no points - no surprise, our offense is plodding and requires long sustained drives to score, our only explosive weapon (moss) was on the bench and our only consistent weapon (portis) was sitting next to him and we were playing a good to great defense.

Defense was bad - it really was just after the starters left that the defense gave up the most yardage and points, but without haynseworth and rogers its not surprising we weren't our normal selves.

ONLY RED FLAG from the game was how bad Tryon looked. Barnes is a rookie, he's going to make mistakes learning coverages, he thought he had safety help, he didn't and he bit on the pump fake, no big deal there. Tryon though has played an entire season in the pros, trained an entire offseason with Darrell Green and was supposed to have made all these great strides/improvements and blah blah blah, he's still small, he still can't cover a slant route and apparently everyone knows it cause every time he's in the game the other team goes right at him. However, another corner can be found if we need it, he has a couple more games to show he's improved or IMHO he's gone they bring in a vet corner to be #4 and Barnes is the #5 guy cause barnes being a 3rd round pick is on the team no matter what.

last year's offense is gonna look like a juggernault compared to this year;s offense.....everyone knows now we can't protect our QB....portis & moss a year older\slower\closer to retirement, still no right tackle or right guard (randy's toast), rabach is older (no good BU center); we may need another punter to share the workload this offseason.....then tehre's our def who just got smoked by the ravens (ravens, not Pats or Colts)--especially our DBs (bye bye tyron--another wasted pick).....I fear 4--12 is staring us all in the face

just quoting what NFL.Com said about the deal.. That Snyder was unsuccessfully shopping JC for a package of picks. And that he could do not get even a 2nd round pick for JC. Its how Snyder was indeed trying to compete last spring for Cutler.. When JC didnt match up with Orton (McDaniels didnt want JC versus Orton), Snyder tried to repackage JC and acquire picks by trading JC...and no better than a 3rd round was offered... Sooooo, Orton on the bench was more valuable than JC, a supposed "starter". And no other GM was willing to give better than a 3rd rounder..
This has been beaten to death...
