that reminds me of a time in Edisto Island, they got huge spiders around those parts. Body is about as big as your hand, I was playing golf, went to look for my ball and almost walked into one of those things.

and I'm the definition of arachnophobic, so that wasn't good. You know, I should've blamed my high score that day on that...

Um while players such as Chris Horton have already been good, you need at least three seasons to judge a draft class...

Be glad that guys like Rob Jackson are on the active roster, that's a good sign.

p1funk -- you just keep repeating the same comment, year 1 impact or else he's a "bad pick", sorry but just isn't a justifiable statement. If you are going to make claims, back them up. That's what I said, and you haven't done it. Not a surprise mind you, but you havne't done it yet.
++++++++++++++++++

(Looking for Craig2 to continue our lively back-and-forth from a previous thread)

Malcolm Kelly showed up for camp out-of-shape and physically unprepared for the task according to his own coach. A reasonable person would call this "bad".

He subsequently fought through hamstring and knee issues in camp. Again his coach referenced the rigors of two-a-day practices that he was physically unprepared for. This also seemed to confirm the speculation of more than a few NFL scouts, that Kelly was "brittle". A reasonable person would call this scenario "bad".

Due to lingering health issues. Kelly, according to his own coach, was losing valuable time for learning the West Coast Offense. The coach also surmised that, as a result of the setback, Kelly would have little to no impact in the first part of the season. A reasonable person would call this "bad".

Several weeks into the season. It appears that he is unable to recover from said knee issues and will have to go on IR. This is "bad", especially considering that the team was hoping he would contribute as evidenced by the fact that they did not retain any other veteran receivers aside from Moss, Randle El and Thrash.

Kelly would go on IR having contributed one catch in 7 games. This is "bad".

Thus I come to the reasonable conclusion that SO FAR in Kelly's pro career, this is looking like a "bad" pick.

This flow of logic, backed up by facts and on-the-record statements will probably not move you off of your foolish idiotic opinion. But I hope we can agree that I have at least demonstrated that my view is "justifiable".

Now, would you care to provide a reasonable argument based on facts to support your opinion that SO FAR Kelly looks like a "good" pick?

Nice job p1funk!

By highlighting the "So Far" part, you justified your statement. Of course, the fact that more than 50% of this years draft also haven't contributed to their team, doesn't detract from your opinion either. Right?

As I have said, it is simply too early to label, any one that does is just looking for something to B!CH about. That's all I have been trying to point out.

So 1 out of the 3 is likely done for the season, with the other 2 obviously making progress, to the point where they seem likely to contribute in the second half of the season.

Sounds like a good draft to me!

Pfunk:

So far he doesn't look like a good pick. But as has been said many times before by various peoples, "so far" doesn't mean a hill of beans with regards to a draft when the draft being scrutinized is just this past April.

I think the frustration for many of us here regarding the "lousy draft" talk is: the team is 5-2, which is better than almost anyone expected, and has as good a shot as anyone else in a year with no clear favorite to actually win this thing, and people are still looking for things to beat up the front office on.

Apparently, this front office, along with Gibbs - all of whom MOST of us criticized regarding their personnel decisions, put together a team that can play with, and beat, anyone when they are healthy and have their s--t together. So maybe, just maybe, some of us should give the upper management some praise, rather than looking to poke holes in their decision making just becuase some of us dug ourselves into "anti-Cerrato/Snyder" positions.

Ok back to football.
Although Landry did have a good hit on Sunday, it doesn't appear he is laying the wood like he used to. Maybe he is just playing smarter. Anyone else notice this?

Posted by: joeboggs | October 23, 2008 11:51 AM |
--------------------------------

I haven't noticed him pulling back, but if he did, I wouldn't blame him.

In this league, where they've fined Hines Ward (Hines Ward!) at least twice this season for blocks he laid on people - on plays in which he was NOT penalized - Landry is smart not to give his money away to Roger Goodell.

Personally, I think something has to be done about this, or it will soon become a flag-football league.

I don't want to see anyone get seriously injured, but at the same time, it IS football, a contact sport.

The league needs to let them play.

DANIA BEACH, Fla. – Authorities said a man used a BB gun to make his getaway after stealing deodorant from a Dania Beach supermarket on Monday afternoon.

Publix employees told Broward deputies that they saw two men shoplifting deodorant spray Monday afternoon. A manager caught up with a 23-year-old man at a store next door. When the manager asked the man to return the deodorant, authorities say he pulled what looked like a black handgun.

Assuming it was a real gun, deputies closed off a nearby apartment complex and put a school on lock down. They also called in a helicopter and dogs to help with the search. They eventually found the man, who still had the deodorant and BB gun.

The man was charged with robbery with weapon and was being held on $50,000 bail.

at the speed that the NFL game is played, which is the fastest of ANY sport on any level, I would bet it is next to impossible to think about whether you should pull back on the hit or not. Football is an instictive game as a lot of sports are, I'm pretty sure this is far from Landry's mind when he is playing.

but I do agree this league is turning into a pansy league. They want to stop the injuries but that's part of the game, then they have the nerve to propose adding TWO more games to the schedule.

Goodell is okay on most stuff, but he's just way wrong on these two subjects IMO.

I heard Tom Brady may have to have the whole knee reconstruction surgery re-done.

Reports are the Pats are pissed because they wanted him to see a doctor of their choosing, but he chose a doctor in California that his family knows.

shaunsherman12 -- VERY well put.

I think the issue with Landry isn't that he is pulling back, but rather the way he is being used and the fact that most teams aren't challenging him in the deep sections of the field much. When they do, it's usually to the side line, preventing him the opportunity to make the big hit.

I guess to be honest, I don't understand why people don't get the Fred Davis pick?? Happens all the time. See the Giants drafting Kiwanuka when they had Osi, and Strahan. See Dallas drafting both Felix Jones, and Martellus Bennett, when they had Barber, and Whitten. Lets be honest, Yoder is what Yoder is, and there is a reason he was available via the waiver wire. If Cools goes down, Yoder wasn't much of an option...don't understand why that concept was so hard to grasp....maybe its me...

Article from espn on the revival of the small receiver with props to Moss and ARE.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?id=3654424&lpos=spotlight&lid=tab6pos1

Also talks about how a lot of bigger receivers don't succeed because they never learn how to run routes and just rely on their size. So if our two rooks ever do figure it out -- and Zorn seems intent on making sure they do -- and if they get on the field, they could be pretty good weapons...

Jason,
I had a thought on your presentation. It just looks so weird with your floating head just so you can get the Washington Post logo and website sign in behind you. Why don't you set it up like it would look on a newscast. Make the sign behind you more square or slightly rectangular and move it off to the side, just like a newscast. That way you can have more of your body in the shot and it will look more professional and not like some Blair Witch shot. Those are just my two cents anyway.

Oh, and you are promoting the post.com site in the background but if people are watching it they are obviously already on the site so I wouldn't think the sign really needs to be so large. Change it up like I suggested I think it will make a huge difference!

Posted by: RiggoisDrunk | October 23, 2008 1:35 PM | Report abuse

Why does the washington post come up with stupid draft bust post less than 1/2 thru the first season? Answer: Lazy Reporting. We all know you do NOT judge draft classes in their first season, the most experienced GM's and most redskins fans on this blog understand it is season 2/3 that really tells the picture of boom/bust. That being said, a more appropriate question would be a very early report on the rookies this year. My NON-Hater take breaks down our draft in 3 sections, 1st section is the top of the draft, picks 34-48-51, 2nd section is the middle of the draft, picks 96-124-168, finally the end of the draft, picks 180-186-242-249.

Section 1 Picks with analysis

Devon Thomas - Disappointing put has time to turn it around in year 1

Fred Davis - Coming along strong in practice and improved work ethic has me believing he will contribute this season, verdict still undecided

Malcolm Kelly - typical hyped wr out of college, does not contribute in year 1 but has huge potential to produce in yr 2 and 3. Disappointment this year, but definately not a bust pick, not yet at least.

Middle Round Section 2-

Rinehart - playing behind the best offensive line in football now, verdict still out

Justin Tryon - all talk this year, strong potential for bust due to lack of special teams contribution

Durrant Brooks - Total Bust, already cut by the team

Bottom of Draft, Section 3:

Kareem Moore - Shows signs of being a special teams player and backup safety, verdict still out

Colt Brennan - love his attitude and upside but this is a classic position that will be judged in year 3 not year 1 or 2

Rob Jackson - HUGE upside potential but has been a limited contributor on the D-Line, injuries could lead to more playing time at the end of the year

Chris Horton - Stud pick and could be defensive ROY or NFL ROY.

Overall:

Top of the draft is TBD, not a bust or boom so far.

Middle of the draft is looking more like total bust, 1 pick is cut already and nobody is that impressed by tryon so that leaves this sections success in the hands of Rino and that wont be for another year or two before he sees the field

Bottom of the draft is where the real special players may come from and given the performace of Horton that automatically moves this group into the gem of this class and ultimately may prove to be where Vinny and the rest of the Front office excelled.

Overall, I am happy with the draft and look forward to the progress of top and bottom draft picks.

Now, would you care to provide a reasonable argument based on facts to support your opinion that SO FAR Kelly looks like a "good" pick?

This is like having a guy rating how someone looks at the starting gate of a marathon.

"For our report on the first quarter mile we go to Ollie Williams. Ollie? What do you see?"

"LOTSA PEOPLE!"

"Can you give us an early pick, Ollie?"

"KENYA!"

"Thanks, Ollie..."
