Bill Dudley, ex-UVa. star, former Redskin, dies at 88

Bill Dudley, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who played for the Redskins in 1950, 1951 and 1953, has died at the age of 88 in Lynchburg, Va., according to the Associated Press.

A halfback out of the University of Virginia, Dudley was the Pittsburgh Steelers' top draft choice in 1942 and led the league in rushing that year. After serving in the Army for two years, he played two more seasons in Pittsburgh. He led the NFL in rushing, punt returns and interceptions in 1946. He also played defensive back.

Dudley, who was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1966, played for the Detroit Lions from 1947-49. He is a member of the Redskins' Ring of Fame.

During his time in Washington, he led the Redskins in scoring every year.

He served four terms in the Virginia House of Representatives and the Bill Dudley Award, given each year to the top college football player in Virginia, is named for him.

When you can lead the NFL in rushing and interceptions in the same season, you are a certified baller.

MistaMoe,
I think 2nd might be too early for LeFevour - maybe he'll be around in the fourth round and I wouldn't hesitate to pick him then. I personally like Pike, but I don't think he's worth of second round consideration either. The quality of the QB's coming out this year just isn't that great, and I would not be unhappy if the team just focused on other positions: primarily the offensive line, but maybe a running back, linebacker and a true free safety. It might be hard to trade for draft picks, but maybe there is a way to trade for a young QB that has potential.

These guys are restricted free agents if the CBA dissolves, but here would be my wish list. I think Brodie Croyle didn't get a chance in KC and he'd be number one on my list. I also think Kellen Clemons is a guy that could contribute. Troy Smith is intriguing.

I think the team has to re-sign Campbell and then maybe trade for one of these guys to provide some competition. I can't see Collins sticking around another year, and Colt Brennan still has to prove he belongs in this league. So, bring in another guy and then declare the position totally open for competition.

Good analysis. I started mine, got distracted, came back to RI and then posted. Anybody who has seen a handful of Vol games would agree that Crompton is garbage and Kiffin’s wife would and should be higher on your draft board.

The commentators also said he would not project as a LT in the Pros. However, that was where he was playing in that game.

Mike Iupati-

While getting Rave reviews during the week, he didnt demonstrate it during the game. He apparently has short arms and that was the reason they say he holds so much. Made a point of saying how he doesnt punch out with his arms, but instead grabs, so he tends to hold as defenders try to go around him..

"That was an O-lineman that MistaMoe has been trying to push on us. Ciron Black from LSU."


As of right now, I'm pressing the "Don't think so button."

C Black is a college left tackle who'll do well to play right tackle in the pros.

I feel the same way about Okung: he should be a right tackle, first, left tackle later.

Iupati is the player I wanted to play right guard, and I don't recall wanting him to play left tackle, that's a fiction.

Right guard is as much a weakness for the skins as left tackle, and I think the scouts who see pro bowler in Iupati might know more than us.

Too, please remember that similar reports about Phil Loadholt's weaknesses came out of last year's Senior Bowl.

It was that he was too bulky and slow to play left tackle in the pros, and that he should be moved inside to guard.

The guy is an above average right tackle for the vikings, mind you.

I'd still take Iupati/Black as my right side this April.

A couple of things:

We've been pushing for Ciron Black as a second or fourth rounder because we think he'd be a great right tackle at this level. Nobody wants him as a left tackle.

Graham bamafies pretty much everyone he plays against. You probably didn't notice it since most teams can just go to the other side and avoid him. He's a beast. He bamafied Selvish Capers too.

Bullet Bob Dudley did it all:

"Despite his lack of breakaway speed, Bill was the most feared kickoff returner in the game. He passed sidearm, like a kid, yet he had a fine completion average. He was 'too small,' but he was hardly ever hurt too badly to play. He was the league's top ground gainer, yet he was also one of the fiercest defensive tacklers and the best in the game at interceptions. As one of the men who faced him ruefully admitted, Bill could not throw a pass correctly and 'ran as if he was staggering,' yet he could always find a way to beat you."

Proud that he was a Redskin. RIP -- you had a great run.

Is he better than Jarmon?

That's the question I'm asking as I'm wondering if he would've been as dominant had he the chance to stay in school to face similiar competition.

Right now, we got a 3rd rounder in Jarmon who would or would not have been worth the pick had he been in this draft.

The kid didn't get much field time and got hurt, so his rookie season was a wash.

Will we look back at the decision to take Jarmon with a 3rd round pick as a bad one?

I dunno.

@PAskinsfan17 - Black is one of the worst fits for our zone blocking scheme. He constantly bends at the waist and doesn't move his feet. The only guy I saw worst then him was Sam Young of Notre Dame.

Ducasse actually held his own pretty good. There were times in the run game where once he locked on he simply kept driving the guy back. And I think he was in on a few of LeBlounts good runs. I also liked Ducasse in pass protection for the most part. The only things that worried me were seeing him get beat by Brandon Grahm (who destroyed everyone that week) and on a few pass plays he seemed to take awkward angles but other then that he looks like a solid prospect.

However I'm still holding out hope where if we go QB first that Charles Brown or Bryan Buluga will be available when we pick in the second round.

"NFL Unveils New Super Bowl Logo"

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- The Vince Lombardi trophy will be a permanent fixture on Super Bowl logos from now on.

The trophy itself will get a new regional look, depending on where the game is played.


So they are going to change the Super Bowl logo based onwhere the game is played?

A Detriot game at Ford Field will feature an unemployment line outside a cloed factory.

A game in Miami will highlight a raft and bundle of cocaine.

A game in Houston will showcase the image of illegal immigrants dashing past border guards.

Pink shades, condoms, tanning and lubricating products will tell the world that San Fran is hosting the game.

A Pasedena, California game will display Arnold the Governator's lock jawed failed administration.

A Las Vegas game will feature a Bunny Ranch logo a top a pair of dice.

Finally, a game in the District of Columbia near the White House will market the area's number product: a congressman looking one way while money is placed in his pocket from behind.

Bullsh!t and a happy cowpoke is what will be on the logo when the game is at Texas Stadium.

I suggest they use the San Fran logo for a Dallas Super Bowl: in fact, most redskin fans feel the same way.

That's a tough comparison. Graham will never make it to the third round. Graham is more of an Orakpo type than a Jarmon type. He'll probably go in the first round. Graham is a right DE or OLB and Jarmon is more of a LDE. I'd say the Jarmon pick is the better pick up for us simply because we already have Carter and Orakpo on the right. Without Jarmon, Daniels and Wynn are all we have on the left side.

In run blocking Ciron Black did much better getting down the field and blocking. His pass protection though was something to be desired. As PASkinsfan pointed out, that kid created a 15-20 minute highlight film from that game alone. He was like the energizer battery, he just wouldnt stop, and couldnt be stopped. He was very impressive.

So Nwaneri posted his five points on Tebow, with capital letters:

2. He can't read any coverage other than probably cover 2 or man.

3. The QB Wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE. PERIOD.

Black might be a fit for a power running team. However for a team like us that will from now on demand lineman be fleet of foot then you see Ciron Black as a horrible fit. He can't get to the second level of the defense (ie the linebackers) and he'll have trouble pulling on toss plays (a staple of Shanahan's running system). Personally given Shanahan's requirements for lineman Black is a horrible fit at any position along the line for us.

Derrick Dockery will be the only "mauler" in Washington for the next few years and part of the reason is that he's actually decent, though not an ideal fit, in a zone block scheme.

Funny thing is this offensive linemen ... for real, like who the hell is he??? I never heard of him.

If the Jaguars do pick Tebow, he'll be one of the guys you notice on the available UFA list.

And please don't drop in #15: his day is done.

Or is it?

He played a Purdue and is a backup for the Jags. He's a scrub but he's right and should get a job as a Talent_Evaluator.

"Range as a second-level blocker is limited. Struggles to keep his balance in space and leaves his feet too often."

In a zone blocking scheme these are deal breakers. You want to block for Shanahan in this system then you need to be able to get to the second level and work in space. You also need the lateral mobility to seal inside players and scoop outside techniques.

As far as prospects we could work with virtually all the first round guys. In terms of after the first you see the best fits in Brown (USC), Capers (WVU), and Ducasse (UMASS). Maybe Jason Fox (Miami) as a late round project.

Mike Pouncey is returning to Florida next year, his brother Maurkice is entering the draft. In my opinion that is who the skins should go for in round 2. 6'5 320 and moves well. Maybe next year we could get his brother to replace Rabach

Best fit might be practice squad.

I wouldn't care if a chick worked as 'Chuckie' at the Chuckie-E-Cheese and reeked like wet rubber when she came home. If she was stunningly gorgeous, why would I?

True. Wouldn't it be odd if she asked you to bang her in her Chuckie outfit? It's like that Entourage episode. There's a name for those people. Furries? Or something.

"You people should read more than your own posts."

I read: twisi, flounder21, beantown, red, chia, diesel, periculum, sween, paskinsfan, romolongballs, L-Source, gatorskin, noonefromtampa, redskinshead, 4thfloor, scampbell1975, richardcranium, brownwood, and even rotfrau when I want to get my race hate on.

You're right to say that Twisi is ahead of the curve when it comes to knowing who the true ballas are.

Now, back to reading my own posts.....

I ordered a Zorn pizza the other day.

The delivery driver was about 8 yards from my door, when he ran 3 yards and was tackled by my azalea bushes. He never made it to the door.....It was sad!

Maurkice Pouncey-- Excellent choice to replace Rabach, a little taller and about 20lbs heavier

Joe Haden- We arent getting this guy, he will be the 1st corner off the board as tehe unanimous #1 CB in the draft.

Ryan Stamper- Feel he will be a bargain for whoever gets him, he has to be projected 3-4th rd

Carlos Dunlap- He will more than likely not make it out of the 1st round even with his little "I passed out at a green light in Gainesville.

Darren Sharpton?? Al's younger nephew??

Brandon Spikes- He will go in the first as well, if he fell to the second, that would be a deal. Fell off after the Georgia eye-gouge game, still confused why that seemed to affect his play

Did I forget anybody?

Jermaine Cunningham- Under rated, has a good motor, played in the shadow of the other LB's on the team.

Aaron Hernandez- I love the way this guy plays tight end, hard runner and breaks tackles, seems more of a recieving type TE than a blocking TE, but a hell of a receiver for a TE.

And please don't drop in #15: his day is done.

Or is it?

As hard as it is for me to say, he is going to have to fall into a perfect situation in order to do well. I see him either coaching or going into politics. The NFL doesnt seem to be his cup o' tea.

I would love for him to prove me wrong, but I dont know if there is a perfect situation for him in the NFL right now.

Same here. Except I was like 10 minutes away yet it took him an hour to get here. All he had to do was take two rights and he was at my place. However the driver could only take lefts for some reason and that was the reason for the delay.
