Pros turn out for unprecedented anti-obesity effort

In Room HC-5 of the U.S. Capitol building, Chris Cooley, his face still cut and bruised from the Redskins' most recent game, stood behind the podium, knowing he wouldn't get asked about the Redskins' offense. No questions about the upcoming trip to Philadelphia, either, and thankfully, not a word about last Sunday's heartbreaker in St. Louis.

"I'm really excited to be here, as a part of this effort to launch this program," the Redskins' tight end said. "I'm excited that I can talk about something besides the Rams. That's getting old."

As coaches at Redskins Park began building a gameplan for the Eagles, Cooley and Redskins owner Dan Snyder made the trip to Capitol Hill Tuesday to announce an unprecedented initiative that has brought together the team owners of all five D.C.-area pro sports teams. Partnering with Coca-Cola, the teams will work together to help combat childhood obesity.

"We all grew up as kids, going outside, playing. The world has changed a little bit," Snyder said. "The U.S. is in dire need of exercising kids, getting activity going."

(Snyder was not fielding football-related questions either Tuesday, though he did say he's eager to move past Sunday's St. Louis loss. "We're all tired of talking about it right now. we've got to move on," he said. "Looking forward to the next game.")

Snyder was joined by Mark Lerner, the Nationals' principal owner, and Ted Leonsis, the CEO and majority owner of the Wizards, Capitals and Mystics. In addition, players representing all five teams were on the Hill to discuss the new initiative, including Cooley, the Nats' Ryan Zimmerman, the Wizards' Josh Howard, the Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom and the Mystics' Crystal Langhorne.

The five teams will each host clinics for children throughout Washington, Virginia and Maryland to teach them the importance of exercising and eating healthfully. Coca-Cola considers this a pilot program and if it takes off, they could launch similar efforts in other cities.

"Obviously this is a very powerful city. It's an issue that needs to be attacked," said Zimmerman, the Nats' third baseman. "To have those guys come up here and take time out of their busy days to address it, it's a powerful message."

Snyder said this marks the first time since he took over Redskins ownership in 1999 that all of the city's pro team owners have united behind a single cause. "We should do it more," Lerner said.

The issue is an especially important one in Washington
where the childhood obesity rate is higher than the national average, particularly in Wards 7 and 8. There, the rate tops 50 percent in some neighborhoods. "As a native Washingtonian, this is a personal issue to me," Snyder said.

When the teams begin their clinics for children next month, athletes from all five teams are expected to take part, along with nutrition experts.

"I'm fortunate to have trainers and have coaches and have people surrounding me that help me with what I need to do to perform at the highest level," Cooley said. "In turn, it's nice that I can speak out to help younger people understand what they need to do for their body to be able to function."

It beats talking about the Rams.

Wow!

The owners of various major league sports teams have to unite in an effort to stop childhood obesity.

Kids have to be encouraged to play.

I wonder how that happened?

kid tossing a football: Dad, take me to the park.

dad: I will.

After the game.

kid with a ball and bat in hand: Dad, the game is over.

Take me to the park.

Dad: I can't, the sports highlight show is on.

kid hours later: Dad, if you don't take me to the park, I'll eat so much food, I'll be as big and fat as Albert Haynesworth.

Dad visibly irritated at the sound of the name 'Haynesworth': In that case, you can go to the park by yourself.

And your conditioning test is you gettin' out the house before I stick my foot in your little fat azz.

The Peeps league had Noone Tampa taking on the Boston East Coast Shaft. Neither team burned it up, romo and Spiller led the Shaft (2-1) to a 66-58 win. A Monday night comeback by Tampa (1-1-1) attempt fell short, as GB's defense and kicker only managed 5 points.

The South Hill Skulls took on the 35332's Zombie Hord. The Hord (2-1) got big days from Brees, MacFadden and the Steeler D in the 93-80 win. Skulls (0-2-1) got 33 from Anquan Boldin in defeat.

He Nate Me (1-2) posted their first win with a 93-81 triumph over Forever 4-12 (1-2). The Peytons, Hillis and Manning, combined for 50 points, while Austin Collie's 31 led 4-12, who left michael vick, and a potential win, on his bench.

Houston Buffaloes (2-1) led the Omaha Steers (1-2) by 9, heading into Monday night. Donald Driver netted just 6, however, and the Buffs claimed the W, 77-74. Mendenhall's 21 led the Buffs, while desean jax had 23 in defeat.

Future Winners (3-0) put out the league's top score this week, in their 122-100 win over Fins Eat Skins (1-2). Future had Aaron Rodgers, Brandon Lloyd and Cedric Benson get 20 or more each. Fins had 34 from Adrian Peterson, and 20+ efforts from Tom Brady and Brandon Marshall, the only time a triple digit score resulted in a loss in the Peeps league so far.

Futaleufu Swimmers (2-1) topped Team Jackalopes (1-2) by a final of 116-78. The Futa had 7 of 9 positions deliver double digit points.

Future Winners remains atop the standings, the only unbeaten and the only team to average 100 points per game. 4 teams are 1 game back.

The Hamster league had pretty limited drama on Monday night, with 1 exception. Team dealer went against the Moss City Santanimals. dealer trailed by 13 heading into Monday night, with Driver and Jennings going. The duo got exactly 13, and the game finished in a 72-72 tie. With no tiebreaker, we now have a tie in both leagues. Dealer (2-0-1) was led by romo and his 22. Brady's 24 led Moss (0-2-1).

The Cal Salmon (3-0) remained unbeaten, though failed to hit triple digits for the first time in a 92-64 win over Coproliths (1-2). Salmon was led by Aaron Rodgers' 23, Chris Johnson had 25 for Copro. On Copro's bench was vick, who would have given Copro 27 additional points, which would have made the loss more agonizing.

Butz for Utz (1-2) posted their first win, 96-79 over Koolaid Kids (1-2). Butz was led by Flacco and desean jax, who combined for 47. Brady had 21 for the Kids in defeat.

The defending champion Carroll Street F Bombers (3-0) also remained unbeaten with a 101-42 win over Geelong Skins (0-3). Geelong only had 1 player in double digits, while F Street got 18 or more from 3 players and the Steeler D.

The Trippin' Billies (2-1) cruised to a 97-57 win over the RalJohn Realskins (1-2). Realskins had the league's top single game score last week, but struggled this week. The Billies got 20+ from Cedric Benson, jeremy maclin and Philip Rivers. Real kept recently acquired WR Austin Collie on his bench, where his 30 points went for naught.

This week's top score belonged to the Shanallen Skins (2-1) in a 126-86 win over the E Funk All Stars (1-2). Shanny got 37 from AP, 25 from Mike Wallace and 24 from Orton. Peyton's 26 led Funk.

Among the unbeatens, the F Bombers, at 3-0 appear formidable, as suspensions end soon. Big Ben will give them a big upgrade at QB and Santonio Holmes a boost at WR. Salmon, the only team averaging in triple digits at 106 points per game, is also improving, with 3 RBs in the news. Beanie Wells and Michael Bush recovered from injuries and played for the 1st time, while BenJarvis Green-Ellis appears to have the #1 RB job for the Pats. And every week, the Salmon gets closer to the return of Sidney Rice.

In a matchup of unbeatens this coming week, Dealer, 2-0-1, plays the 3-0 F Bombers.

There must be something in the genetic code of fat and ugly people that encourages them to procreate more than the rest.

It sort of mocks and refutes the old theories about survival of the fittest.

What mocka nd refutes the old theories of evolution are TV commercials for krap. The ads are cleverly written to seduce kids into eating sugary junk foodand ignore healthy food.

When these self-proclaimed geniuses are burned out by the hard work of working in advertising,they can shift to marketing and designe Supermarkets where the worst foods are at kids eye level, and up near the register, where Mom will make the least fuss.

Has nothing to do with genetic codes. Like the cigarette industry, the crappy food industry knows it has to keep replacing all the victims who die from their products with new victims.

But the only thing that can f*ck an azshole is a d!ck, with some balls. The problem with d!cks is: they f*ck too much or f*ck when it isn't appropriate - and it takes a p*ssy to show them that. But sometimes, p*ssies can be so full of sh!t that they become azsholes themselves... because p*ssies are an inch and half away from azsholes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us f*ck this azshole, we're going to have our d!cks and p*ssies all covered in sh!t"

I love obesity and high blood sugars, without it...what would I do. Type 1 (hereditary/juvenile diabetes) only makes up 10% of the cases of diabetes. I need kids and adults eating themselves into type 2 diabetes. Say no to water, diet sodas, any not buying fast food. While I have no sympathy for the obese, I at least appreciate them.

Let's hope because apparently, if not, we are stuck with Galloway and ROYDELL PHUKING WILLIAMS as are complementary receivers. Obviously DT is too stupid to get on the field. I mean honestly, how bad do you have to be in practice to NOT pass up Roydell Phuking Williams on the depth chart.

Posted by: Poopy_McPoop | September 29, 2010 1:46 AM | Report abuse

Hopefully the last we'll see of that dreadful Rams game...Keim's "Studs and Duds":

Studs

DE Phillip Daniels: Daniels blocked a field goal to cap off a tremendous series for him, coming right through the middle to bat away a chip-shot. On two plays at the goal-line, Daniels used his power to drive the lineman back. Did it twice, too. Daniels did miss a tackle and he does not move as well laterally as he used to, but his power is needed more often on the field, just to hold the edge and prevent cutbacks.

Reed Doughty: Just for a big hit on special teams that caused a fumble. Doughty has a definite role on this team and he filled it well Sunday. Even if it was just one play, it was a play that led to points. Doughty can help as a backup/special teamer. You could do worse.

LB Lorenzo Alexander: His ability to play in space is impressive, given that he’s a former defensive tackle. I know he says playing on special teams helped him develop this, but in reality it could be that his ability to play in space is why he was good on special teams. Anyway, he had an impressive tackle of Mardy Gilyard on a smoke route, defended a pass and played with power at the goal line.

TE Chris Cooley: He had just five catches for 53 yards, which isn’t bad. But it’s his blocking that was pretty good. On Ryan Torain’s long run, Cooley blocked the end and then got to a linebacker. A couple plays later, Cooley picked up a linebacker blitz. And on Torain’s seven-yard run around right end inside the 20, Cooley was among the blockers opening the hole.

Posted by: brownwood26 | September 29, 2010 5:40 AM | Report abuse

Duds

WR Joey Galloway: Was asked by LaVar Arrington on his radio show with Chad Dukes if Galloway played. I thought he was kidding. He was serious. But I understand why and it just shows you Galloway’s impact. Galloway had two passes thrown to him. In three games, he’s had 10 passes thrown to him; three have been completed. Granted, they’re mostly deep balls. But if you’re a No. 2 receiver, shouldn’t there be other passes you could catch?

NG Maake Kemoeatu: He had a couple series where he played strong. Had one series where he got off a block to make a tackle and But the reality is that London Fletcher and Rocky McIntosh are having to deal with too many guards coming at them. And that’s because the line is not doing its job. Kemoeatu does not control the middle – have been saying for a while that he can’t set with good leg strength, perhaps a function of his Achilles injury -- and if you can’t do that you’d better make plays. He doesn’t have the foot speed to do that.

LT Stephon Heyer: He actually had some solid plays, a few nice blocks. But when games get tight in the second half, he tends to allow pressure and negative plays. It happened once more Sunday. He had a false start and a holding penalty on a blitz. He also got driven back a few times. Part of the problem is that he doesn’t always set with a good base. Could be because he stands too straight up as he’s blocking. Doesn’t give him a chance to then set a good base. Because of that, pockets get pinched. Get well soon, Trent Williams.

RT Jammal Brown: He was getting stood up by Chris Long and did not do a good job reacting well with his feet. Change of direction is giving him issues right now and those who have watched him for a while say he’s clearly not the same. Maybe it’s having missed a year or playing a new side. Could be both. That can change the more he plays, but for now it’s reality. He gets in trouble because he’ll get too upright, allowing a lineman to slip inside. Long did that, too.

CB DeAngelo Hall: Did not back up his talk from early in the week. The coverage was not tight, whether in zone or man, and his tackling was bad. He slipped and fell on a smoke route to Mark Clayton. OK, fine, it happens. But on the third and 20 pass down the right side in the fourth quarter, he came up and almost tried to tag the receiver rather than tackle him. He also didn’t make the best attempt to get off his block and tackle Kenneth Darby on a 13-yard run to open the fourth.

WR Roydell Williams: OK, he really isn’t going to do much so I don’t want to pick on him. But it’s little plays that hurt teams. And on a seven-yard Chris Cooley catch in the red zone, had Williams executed his block, Cooley would have either scored or gotten a first down. But Williams missed OJ Atogwe and Cooley was tackled and a field goal was made. It’s the story of Washington’s season.

continued...

Posted by: brownwood26 | September 29, 2010 5:43 AM | Report abuse

continued (yes, there are THAT many "Duds")...

DE Kedric Golston: Very much a try-hard guy and a worthwhile player to have on your roster. But, like Kemoeatu, he’s not doing his job when it comes to occupying blockers. Again, just watch the linebackers. They rarely run free. Golston also gets moved out too often, especially in short yardage situations. On the fourth and 1, he was driven a few yards back and to the middle. He has his moments where he makes plays and they show why he can still help in some role. But the Redskins need more stout play up front.

LB Andre Carter: Ugh. Love the man and I appreciate his approach. But it’s going to be hard for him to make plays in space, as he showed the other day. He wasn’t the only one who missed a tackle, but when it’s a weakness (playing in space) and it then shows up, it’s a problem. Carter does best rushing straight up field. That’s not a knock, it’s reality. When he must change directions, he does it too slow. He does do a good job taking on blockers at times. But this position is just not suited to him. Mike Shanahan preaches a gospel of maximizing strengths and minimizing weaknesses, yet he wanted a defense that has done neither, save for a couple players.

In-between


*Not sure how to merge a Stud and a Dud without coming out with … Stud. Maybe we should merge Dud and Stud for … Dust. That doesn’t work either. So we’ll call these guys the in-betweeners. Yes, that stinks, too.

WR Santana Moss: Had six catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. Ran a terrific route on a well-designed play for a touchdown in which he ran to the middle and cut back to the corner. It helped that he was covered by a safety after the corner on that side blitzed. But his penalty on a cut block and, one play later, his fumble after a catch, didn’t help. The fumble led to seven points.

LB London Fletcher: Most of his plays these days are coming downfield. At times he’s overrunning plays and the cutback lanes are free. Not sure that’s all his fault. But it’s also hard for him because of how much he’s dealing with from blockers. Still, he missed a couple tackles, including one on a screen that would have resulted in a loss. His coverage skills aren’t terrific anymore, either. But in the second half he did help on six tackles on gains of three yards or less. That’s when you know he, and the line, are doing their jobs. But not all were on runs.

FS Kareem Moore: Good to have him back and the interception showed his athleticism. And it’s not as if the Rams were beating Washington deep (with slower receivers, that wasn’t going to happen anyway). But Moore’s rustiness showed in how he took poor angles to the ball on a couple runs, including Steven Jackson’s 42-yarder for a score. He can improve and, as long as he stays healthy, he probably will.

f_b, it's a simple concept...the better players play. When they don't produce, the players playing behind them don't magically become better. They're typically worse. Which is why they're playing behind unproductive starters.

I'll never get why everyone just says "go to the backup for a spark"...if the backup had shown they could play at a high level, they wouldn't be backups...
