Horton Finds a Mentor in a Former Redskin

Redskins safety Chris Horton is beginning to make a bit of a name for himself around the league with his big plays, and he already has a few friends in the media. Horton struck up a strong relationship with former Redskin and Cowboy James Washington during his college days at UCLA; Washington is a former Super Bowl winner and hosts a nationally syndicated radio show on Fox.

Horton credits Washington with helping him focus his time and energy on football, developing as both a person and a player. Horton spent five years at UCLA - where Washington played safety - and they became close. Washington has mentioned Horton a few times on his show, and is a big supporter of the seventh-round pick.

"I talk to James often," Horton said. "He's been a guy when I first got to UCLA, he kind of took me under his wing. And he's a former Super Bowl MVP, and he took me under. He's a good guy to get some good advice from.

"We talk abut life, football, everything. It's more than just football between us two. Over my five years at UCLA we built a special bond between us that took us outside of football. He'll call me and definitely let me know if I'm stinking it up. He's one of those guys who lets you know exactly how he feels. I hear from him every once in a while, and I know he's there for me any time I have something I need to ask him."

Washington was a fifth-round pick by the L.A. Rams in 1988 and was with Dallas from 1990-1994, then spent 1995 with the Redskins in his last year in the league.

Wonder if Horton has also hit it off with Doc Walker, I know he's another UCLA dude.

Horton is awesome! Love that short fade hair cut too. I think it sucks he's losing playing time to Justin Tryon but hey, I'm not the coach. He reminds me of that guy from the NY Gigantes, Phil McDonkey. Or he could be like another great safety, Everson Walls. Sweet.

As long as we're fact checking, I gots to say that Stanley "The Sheriff" Richard played wif' the Chargers, and not the Cowgirls. As I recall from those long gone from the memory days of the Norv Turner error, he didn't make much of an impact in our defensive backfield.
He was more of a self promoter than a player and he got torched, along with the rest of his defense, by the 49'ers in the SB played in January of '05. The mere fact that he had been in a SB seemed to be enough for the Skins to overpay for him.

I'm just passin' it along, that's all.

From his wikibio: (Not an MVP but a big play)

Super Bowl XXVIII
One of his most notable performances was in Super Bowl XXVIII when Thurman Thomas, after being tackled by Leon Lett, fumbled the ball, Washington returned it for a 46 yard touchdown to tie the game.

REPORT: PACMAN GETS IN A FIGHT
Posted by Mike Florio on October 8, 2008, 7:36 p.m. EDT

For those of you who had October 7 as the date on which cornerback Pacman Jones gets into trouble, it’s time to collect your prize.

According to CBS 11 in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Jones got into a fight with a bodyguard on Tuesday night at an upscale Dallas hotel.

The team isn’t commenting on the situation.

Per the report, it was a “violent confrontation” in a bathroom. Patrons could clearly hear that a fight was occurring, and at least one mirror in the bathroom was broken. Jones reportedly left the hotel without paying his bar tab.

Ironically, Commissioner Roger Goodell met with the Cowboys on Wednesday. Goodell had this to say regarding Pacman:

“Adam knows how much emphasis I put on making sure that he makes good choices going forward, that he avoids situations where he can reflect poorly on himself, the Cowboys or the NFL. So far he seems to have been able to do that very effectively. I am supportive of him and am hopeful that he will be able to do that for the rest of his life. I am hoping he will not only be a great NFL player but he will continue to do the right things so he can lead a productive life off the field as well.”

oh...maske is reporting this on insider...

POSTED AT 8:00 PM ET, 10/ 8/2008
A. Jones Reportedly in Scuffle
A Dallas television station reported that Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones was involved in a violent confrontation with one of his own bodyguards at a hotel Tuesday night.

Jones fought with his bodyguard in a bathroom at the Joule Hotel in Dallas before the two men were separated by members of the hotel's security staff, KTVT-TV reports.

Jones, while with the Tennessee Titans, was suspended for all of last season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league's personal conduct policy. The policy empowers Goodell to banish a player permanently from the league for repeated violations of the policy, and Goodell warned Jones when the cornerback initially was suspended that Jones was down to his last chance to salvage his NFL career.

The Cowboys traded for Jones in the offseason and Goodell reinstated him just before the season.

The NFL's conduct policy also empowers Goodell to impose discipline on a player without the player being convicted of a crime.

Police officers reportedly were called to the scene of Tuesday's incident but no police report was filed, according to the television report. Hotel patrons reportedly heard the argument and physical confrontation between Jones and his bodyguard and at least one mirror was broken during the scuffle, according to the report. Jones reportedly left the hotel without paying his tab.

The Cowboys told the station they had no information about the incident and therefore had no comment, and Jones was not available to comment.

MORE DETAILS ON PACMAN FIGHT
Posted by Mike Florio on October 8, 2008, 8:24 p.m. EDT

We’ve tracked down Steve Pickett of CBS 11 in Dallas/Ft. Worth, who has been working the story of the Tuesday night fight involving Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones, and we’ve got some more details.

The incident occurred at a hotel that was hosting a party after the local premiere of the new Max Payne movie. Jones was not an overnight guest at the hotel.

Pacman was perceived to be “clearly agitated” (and intoxicated) while outside the hotel. At one point, Jones pulled off his shirt (he had a T-shirt under it) and then went back into the building.

Hotel security broke up the bathroom fight between Jones and the bodyguard. A police officer spoke with Jones outside the hotel, but no charges were filed and no report was generated.

The Cowboys claim that they have no information about the situation, and thus the team had no comment.

The open question is whether the bodyguard was someone whom Jones had hired, or whether the bodyguard was retained by the team to shadow and/or babysit Jones. If it’s the latter, Jones might have committed an automatic violation of the Personal Conduct Policy since, technically, the bodyguard is a co-worker.

We’ve recently heard that tension has arisen between Jones and the team regarding efforts to keep him out of settings in which trouble could arise. It’s unknown whether Jones attended Tuesday night’s function with the blessing of the team, or against its wishes. Not long ago, the team reportedly barred Pacman from participating in a celebrity beach volleyball tournament.

Can't wait for Werder and Mort to weigh in on this... after that its only a matter of time before Goodell's hand is forced to run Pacman.

My speculation is that Good Old Adam got tired of the team babysitter and decided to take matters into his own hands. Team: "Ok you can go, but this guy has to go with you". Adam is a bad ass and ain't gonna put up with no team boy telling him what to do. I'm thinking I could manage to put up with some oversight for that amount of dollars. If i needed some oversight that is.

How can you not love Portis. Can run, block, catch and scheme:


Therefore, Portis figures, teams will now be expecting him to get the ball whenever he's seen on the sidelines speaking with Zorn. Thus, it's time to pull off the double-cross.

"The whole world's going to think I'm around him calling my number, so we've got to go and fake them out a couple of times," Portis said. "I'm going to huddle up with Coach Z, probably at midfield, get him to come out to the 50 and tell him to just draw it up in the dirt so the cameras can get it and everybody can see it. Hopefully they call down from the box and tell the coordinator, 'Whoa, we got the play!'"

Then real play, of course, would be a play-action fake and a deep pass over the middle. Touchdown in the bag.

Ah, that Portis. Pure genius.

Source: Cowboys' Newman has sports hernia, may need surgery

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By Ed Werder
ESPN.com

Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman has been diagnosed with a sports hernia injury and the team has forwarded results of his medical tests to a Philadelphia specialist for confirmation before determining whether surgery is necessary, according to a source close to the player. A Cowboys source said Newman would have the surgery immediately if the sports hernia injury is confirmed and would be out a minimum of six weeks. Newman will miss his third game of the season Sunday when the Cowboys play the Arizona Cardinals.

At the request of Newman and his agent, the Cowboys have sent the player's MRI results and other information to Dr. William Meyers, who performed surgery on Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb to repair a sports hernia injury. NBA player Grant Hill, whose father Calvin works for the Cowboys, is another professional athlete Meyers has treated for the injury.

Newman played against the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins with some discomfort and then suffered more intense pain in the team's practice last Friday, when he was listed on the injury report and unable to play against the Cincinnati Bengals.

JONES SCUFFLED WITH HIS TEAM-ISSUED “BABYSITTER”
Posted by Mike Florio on October 8, 2008, 8:56 p.m. EDT

The Dallas Cowboys had no comment about the fight involving cornerback Pacman Jones because the team had no information about the incident. Well, if the team doesn’t have information about the situation, it simply hasn’t bothered to ask for it.

Per a league source, the “bodyguard” with whom Jones fought in the bathroom of a Dallas hotel was an off-duty police officer who has been hired by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to babysit Pacman.

The source says that the problem started because the babysitter popped off to Jones’ female companion. Jones, who had been drinking, then started up with the guy, and it culminated in a scuffle.

Jones, we’re told, had marks on his face at practice on Wednesday.

It remains to be seen whether the Cowboys or the league will take any action about the situation.

PACMAN PARTS WAYS WITH AGENT
Posted by Mike Florio on October 8, 2008, 9:42 p.m. EDT

In what could be even more evidence of the rapid unraveling of Pacman 2.0, Albert Breer of SportingNews.com reports that Jones recently fired agent Manny Arora.

“Adam and I see things a little bit differently,” Arora told Breer. “He’s the boss, and he made this decision.”

The move is surprising, given that Arora stood by Jones through his string of off-field challenges, including his lengthy suspension from the NFL.

And so the biggest question currently facing the Cowboys is whether Pacman or T.O. will completely implode.

We place our money on . . . both.

ANOTHER DISTRACTION FOR THE RAMS---

Say a prayer...


Rams wide receiver to undergo more brain tests

By R.B. FALLSTROM, AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS (AP)—Rams wide receiver Dane Looker will have additional tests designed to rule out an aneurysm after a CAT scan that cleared him from a concussion revealed a brain abnormality.

Dr. Matt Matava, a team physician, said Looker also would be examined Thursday by a neurosurgical consultant.

Team medical personnel believe the abnormality is unrelated to the concussion Looker sustained against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 28.

“It could be something that concerns me, or it could be nothing as well,” Looker said. “We’re in limbo right now.”

He said doctors believe the spot that showed up on the CAT scan has been there for some time, but one of the doctors’ questions gave him pause.

“What made me a little nervous was he asked if I was married and if I had kids, and I said yeah,” Looker said. “He said, ‘We should get this done right away.’

“Anytime you’re dealing with the brain, you start thinking about your mortality.”

Matava described the tests as precautionary, adding that Looker has had no symptoms or prior history suggestive of an aneurysm. Matava said an angiogram, in which dye is injected into the arteries, was a routine followup test that did not require immediate evaluation.

“There’s no evidence he has an aneurysm, except that a suggestion of something like that showed up on one of his tests,” Matava said. “It just needs to be ruled out.”

The Rams (0-4) ruled out Looker for Sunday’s game at Washington, although he sprinted with the rest of the team after practice. St. Louis re-signed wide receiver Eddie Kennison, who was released on Tuesday with the expectation that Looker would return to duty.

Looker is in his seventh season with the Rams and has six receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown, and has served in past seasons as a punt returner and holder.

Coach Jim Haslett said the Rams had anticipated elevating another wide receiver, Derek Stanley, from the practice squad after releasing Kennison. Haslett said the Rams called the league office to try to void the release of Kennison but were too late, so he was re-signed to a contract and Stanley remained on the practice squad for another week.

“That was a strange one,” Haslett said. “It’s an unfortunate thing.”

Kennison was signed Sept. 9 after Drew Bennett was sidelined with a broken foot in the opener and has played sparingly in two games, with no catches. He originally was a first-round pick of the Rams in 1996.

“In this business, I’m never surprised,” Kennison said. “That’s just the way it is. I was going home yesterday.”

Kennison said he was unemployed for about six hours. He had planned to pack Tuesday night and driving back to his home in Kansas City on Wednesday.

“Yesterday was a character builder,” Kennison said. “I’m here because it’s unfortunate what’s going on right now with Dane. I told Dane my prayers are out to him.”

From ESPN.COM
How they got here: Great question. The Redskins were easily the least attractive team in the NFC East heading into this season, mainly because they had a first-year head coach (Jim Zorn) who was installing an entirely new offense. But it's amazing what can happen when you take care of the football. Quarterback Jason Campbell has yet to throw an interception in 153 pass attempts, and the Redskins have just one turnover in five games. There are probably plenty of reasons for their fast start, but that efficiency is the most obvious factor.


Where they're heading: It's easy to think the Redskins will fade eventually. The reality is they likely won't. Remember, they went into Philadelphia and beat a talented Eagles team in Week 5 after winning in Dallas a week earlier. If you can pull out tough wins in those places, you have to be considered a legitimate contender for the NFC East crown.

That was a good article on HB. I went to WV the time that this guy was playing at Pitt. He was one of those players on a college field that was moving way faster then everyone else. He never did to much damage against us, infact he blew out his knee one year but when the skins drafted him I was very pleased. Especailly for where we got him. If he had literally 2 more inches this guy would have been a first or second rounder, to much empasis is put on the look of a player, some guys like HB just go out and play.
