Campbell Is Red Hot, Blades Has Surgery

Jim Zorn was very impressed with how QB Jason Campebll looked today, making decisive throws and showing a willingness to unload the ball to a particular area even if a receiver was not entirely in the clear. "Jason Campbell today was lights out," Zorn said after the morning practice. "He pushed through a lot of decisions."

CB Carlos Rogers took more work today, taking part in some team drills but still on a limited basis. "Right now he's just practicing, with very limited reps," Coach Jim Zorn said. There are still no plans for him to play in a preseason game anytime soon, and caution remains the buzz word when it comes to Rogers, who underwent major knee surgery in November.

HB Blades underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee today and will be out four weeks, give or take, Zorn said.

DE Erasmus James is making progress in his long recovery from knee surgery and continues to work alone with trainers, but Zorn said he is progressing despite his limited workload. Zorn said James received positive reviews from the training staff during a personnel meeting Monday night, but is still a ways away from contributing. Zorn hopes James can get onto the field sometime in mid-to-late August and perhaps play in the final preseason game for a play or two. "We're not going to try to hurry it," Zorn said.

I can't imagine being able to count on him in a regular season game until October or so, but that's just my hunch.

RB Eric Shelton continues to receive medial attention for a problem stemming from his the back of his neck. Shelton has not been on the field the last two days and doctors are assessing why he has had numbness in his arms and legs. It could be related to his stingers, but the Redskins are taking no chances and we may not see him back for a while as they determine the exact nature of this injury.

The Redskins have cut DL Zarnell Fitch and are in the process of signing another depth lineman.

OL Jason Fabini left practice early after being sick most of the morning, and I am guessing he won't be taking part in the afternoon session (the Skins are back on the field at 3). Fabini was throwing up in the huddle, and just couldn't stop. "It was uncontrollable," Zorn said. Fabini will rest, get out of the sun and get re-hydrated.

TE Chris Cooley, in collaboration with Children's Hospital, brought a group of sick children to training camp today to meet the team. They had the chance to take pictures and get autographs as players came off the field. Anyone interested in helping that charity, which aims to benefit teenagers with cancer, can find T-shirts and other gear at www.cafepress.com/trishhamilton. (For mysterious reasons known only to the guy who invented Loseable Type, I cannot link to this, so I had spell it out. How I do luv Loseable Type.) All proceeds go to the hospital.

K Shaun Suisham, the lone Canadian on the team, has become a bit of a man about town as he's adjusted to life in Washington. He and his wife are often at sporting events and the like. Considering what a metropolitan area this is, with communities of people from around the world, I asked Suisham half-jokingly where the Canadians hang out in town. Turns out your kicker was invited to a swank party at the Canadian Embassy for Canada Day celebrations (that's July 1 to us). He was one of about 1,500 fellow Northerners there and got to hang out with the ambassador. Not too shabby.

Posted by: Great One | July 29, 2008 11:39 AM

Most people do. It's just the issue is cheapened by folks who pull the race card too much or in inappropriate situations(i.e.-the criticism of an NFL QB for his play). Making JC out to be the victim of hate crime by fans or media or anyone else is ridiculous. On the contrary, I think he's more the victim of expectations being too high for him because he's a black QB wearing #17 in Washington. Some folks have seen too many highlights of Doug Williams throwing 4 tds in the 2nd quarter of Super Bowl XXII--that isn't necessarily going to be Campbell. If he's held to realistic expectations (which for right now, should be a solid starter who manages a game well), you'd be surprised how much better the talk surrounding him becomes.

The reason people hate Campbell and think he's not very smart has nothing to do with his race or with his being a Southerner.

It's because he went to Auburn, the dumb factory of the South. It he'd gone to 'Bama he would have started out smart and ended up a genius, sort of like Joe Namath. It's that simple.

If JC wins games, he'll remain the Skins QB; if he doesn't, he won't.

Is someone advocating he remain QB if he loses games because he's black?

They don't let white QBs around here keep losing games and remain at QB (see: Jay Schroeder, Heath Shuler, et al).

So why the heck would JC be any different?

Having said that, I think he's the real deal, and he'll win games - and postseason games - for this franchise.

All kidding aside, I'm really happy to hear that JC is playing some lights out ball in camp. Hopefully that carries over into the season. He's got a fine QB coach leading the way in Zorn, a ton of weapons, and a healthy (knock on wood) o-line. Let's hope he stays healthy, pulls it all together and gets this team back into the playoffs!

So for those McCain supporters tell both sides of the story. Obama was wrong for not shaking hands, and so is McCain for not wanting to help the Soldiers when they tour is over

Just because McCain is a veteran, that does NOT mean he supports veterans, or our active troops.

Here's just a FEW examples of McCain's voting record proving that he does not support our military men and women.

McCain voted NO or simply didn't vote on the following bills:

To prohibit profiteering and fraud relating to military action, relief, and reconstruction.

Treduce the age for receipt of military retired pay for nonregular service from 60 to 55.

To assure that funding is provided for veterans health care each fiscal year to cover increases in population and inflation.

Department of Defense and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the United States Act, 2002

To create a reserve fund to allow for an increase in Veterans' medical care by $1.8 billion by eliminating abusive tax loopholes.

To provide, with an offset, $20,000,000 for the Department of Veterans Affairs for Medical Facilities.


Look at the facts and not the spin of the conservitive main stream media and you will see that McCain is a traitor to his fellow military memebers!

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.

When the Redskins drafted an OL in the 3rd round this year, I was relieved. Thought to myself "man I hope this guy turns out to be good" as I knew this would be the next hurdle. For a guy to get rave reviews 1 week into his NFL career is HUGE for us from an offensive line standpoint. If this guy is as good as advertised when the regular season comes around this is going to be one the most slept on and overlooked blessings this team has gotten in a long long time. This guy Rinehardt becoming a stud could be bigger than any of these WR's that we drafted in regards to how vital this is to our future. Don't underestimate how important it is for this team to see Rinehardt develop & prosper. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Because his development is almost as important as our young QB's development, and I'm not talking about Colt "45" Brennan. We are getting old and brittle in the interior of our O-LINE and when it's weak I don't care if you have Clinton Portis or Barry Sanders; Malcom Kelly or Ricky Sanders, none of that matters w/out a solid O-Line. I hope we draft early round linemen for the next 4 years...... offensive & defensive !

About the "captain"

Interesting comments from the "captain" who claims to be serving in afghanistan, and claims to be objectively reporting about Obama's visit.

While I would never denigrate a serviceman defending our country, let me state that i am NOT convinced that this is really from one. The GOP has set the standard for lying in political campaigns with the disgraceful "Swift Boat" performance, which lied and denigated an honorable American who served bravely in the combat.

They are doing the same thing this campaign, and John McCain has already begun telling lies about Obama and his philosophy. But the real dirty work, as before, will be by pretend patriots who will slander him under cover of their own lies.

As for the "Captain," if indeed he is who he says he is, and if indeed he is serving in afghanistan, my primary advice is to "watch your six."

Because George W. Bush, the man who Mccain now embraces physically and philosophically, abandoned the real war on terrorism in your neck of the woods to start his Oil War in Iraq, you are in greater danger than ever. And George Bush served fake turkey to servicemen when he was in iraq for a visit. (Nice to see him go to a combat zone, after chickening out in Vietnam).

McCain trotted through a marketplace in baghdad pretending it was a stroll in the Park, when secretly he was protected by three choppers and a battalion of soldiers. The marketplace was attacked after he left. I guess that didn't bother you, though.

McCain wants to stay another hundred years in Iraq. And, as was pointed out here, McCain has become a sunshine soldier who now votes against the needs of the real ones serving today.

And finally, anyone who has been watching "Generation Kill" realizes, sometimes the captains leading the troops are idiots.

And to attempt to draw the conclusion you did from one incident, as you do, is pretty good indication of idiocy, naivete, or the Fox approach to fairness and balance..

Oh. If you ARE overseas, you don't appreciate some of the other benes the GOP has brought us. Be thankful you don't have to pay to fill up your HumVee. It would be well into triple digits here.

In the meantime, may I respecfully suggest you keep your propaganda where it belongs, on political boards. We'd appreciate it if you don't sour the stomach of us who seek solace here from the incompetence and evil of the current administration and the stand-in candidate for Bush's Third Term.

The great thing I learned early about being a Redskin fan is it brings together all views for one common cause.

Whether it was out of your own beliefs, or because you are a right wing tool serving the McCain campaign, your post helps drive a wedge into that feeling.

And yes, I'm doing the same by responding. But Silence equals assent, and your inflammatory comments needed an answer.

Can live with the Truth's obsessions about Georgia and his (her) man crush on Emeka Okafor, as long as he (she?) doesn't overdo it. His (her?) Redskin posts are pretty interesting.

Any truth to the rumor that Obama plans to make Bill Ayers his domestic terrorism czar?


In other news, Suisham is Canadian?! Now things are starting to make sense...

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?).

Ummm... goin' way out on the limb here, I'll say, ummm.... Brian Mitchell.

Chia, you headed to Buffalo Wild Wings with us for the HOF game?

Aw, hell no! I'm really not surprised why black women feel the way they do. I do feel it's self-imposed MOST of the time. And before someone challenges me to a pissing contest, I'll pass. It'll just open up a can and I don't feel like debating... I'll just say this: It doesn't surprise me AT ALL that white women get married more than black women. At all.

And no my comments are not racist based. I have TONS of experince with dealing with these beautiful but OVERLY complicated women. With that said, I LOVE all women regardless of race, color, or religion.

Oh yeah, I'm with Cork on the "Generation Kill" series. It's flat out excellent! I've been to Iraq and I was SURPRISED how attractive and stunning some women are over there.

The Truth quotes :
"Can we talk about Redskins ? I'm sick of hearing about UGA and Charlotte Bobcats and all of this BS. We need a full time attack dog on "The Truth". This clown is free to do whatever he wants, but damn I'm getting sick of this. Does anyone feel me on this one ?

Posted by: Can we talk about Redskins ? | July 29, 2008 12:50 PM" and respond with the following quote :

"The Truth wonders aloud if The Truth is the only one that thinks Erasmus James will be a very valuable pickup and make a huge impact on the team not only this year but for years to come!?!

"The Truth says it would be a great idea to pansy The Redskins up by putting them in a dome. The Truth sarcastically says that air conditioning is very important for NFL players.

The Truth says to give him a break!

The Truth also states that the Redskins Insider posters are WRONG in their hate for Carlos Rogers. The Truth says Rogers is a very solid player and WILL BE BACK, haters!

Injuries, injuries, injuries, and oh yeah, Cooley brought some kids to practice. Is camp really that boring? No interesting matchups? Great leaping catches? What backups are showing promise? Where is that interesting bubble guy story? I don't feel like I'm inside.

Great One wrote: "it amazes me the Obama rhetoric on here from some people about he did not shake hands with soldiers. what they dont tell you is that McCain a Vietnam vet voted agaisnt giving our GI"S better benefits when they come home."

This has nothing to do with football, so it already annoys me. But demagoguery requires rebuttal.
McCain did vote against a bill that would improve benefits for returning GIs. What this guy won't tell you is that the Democrats in congress also inserted into that bill a measure to implement a timeline for withdrawal, knowing full well that any responsible Republican would vote against the bill. So, yet again, Democrats played politics with our troops' lives so that they could try to label some Republicans as not caring about the troops.
All that being said, I'm no fan of McCain's, but I just couldn't let that piece of crap pass.

On another note, when did all this talk of racism towards Jason Campbell start? If he wins games, he'll be cheered, and if he loses games consistently he'll be replaced... same as any white quarterback. Where's the issue?

I got to laugh at you Dealer. If you can't take someone coming back at you without acting like a little girl. Don't came at others cry baby.

Todd been a back up for 11 years. Enough said right there! When JC lights it up this year. Make sure you came back and say you are wrong. But we both know you won't!

I drove to Fan Appreciation day like I have for three years now only to be sorely disappointed. In years past, you could reasonably expect to get at least one autograph, this year, the players walked straight to the VIP section before practice and Zorn said the players would only have a few minutes after practice to sign autographs. This was FAN APPRECIATION DAY. I think Snyder has mucked it up and my sons, (7 and 5) didn't understand why the players wouldn't walk by the masses. It stinks and it is a shame.
