Rogers, McIntosh have not signed tenders yet [UPDATED]

Cornerback Carlos Rogers and linebacker Rocky McIntosh are the only remaining players who have not signed their one-year contract tenders.

"I'm not worried about it," Rogers said Wednesday after organized team activities at Redskins Park. "There's still time. It's not about a contract deal...I'm not even looking for a long-term deal. I know they're not going to do that. But there's some other stuff that probably can be done. Ain't no rush. I'll sign it before training camp begins."

If players do not sign within 10 weeks of the start of free agency on March 5,
they cannot play in the 2010 regular season or the playoffs. If they haven't signed by June 15, their tender amounts can be reduced to 110 percent of their 2009 salaries.

That rule, however, does not apply to Rogers, a former first-round pick, whose $1.542
million tender is 110 percent of his 2009 salary under the "original draft round" level of the restricted free agency system.

McIntosh, who skipped the first voluntary minicamp in April out of frustration over his
contract situation, said he didn't "know anything" about the tender offer.

"All I know is I have to be here on Tuesday [for OTAs] and I'll come to work. I always want to be here. I want to be here from Tuesday to whatever. We'll just see what happens."

Rogers, McIntosh and safety Reed Doughty--who, the Redskins announced Wednesday, has signed his tender--signed waivers to participate in OTAs and
minicamps.

**Cornerback Carlos Rogers confirmed via text message that he will sign his one-year, $1.54 million tender offer and practice, for the start of training camp, on Thursday.

http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/Kolbs_practice_demeanor.html#axzz0p5JhRopj


It happens at least once a practice: Kevin Kolb will drop back to pass, go through his reads and fire a dyslexic incomplete pass. The Eagles quarterback will then smack the side of his thigh or shake his head or slap his hands together or mutter something out loud that clearly demonstrates his unhappiness.

.............


For one, it stands polar to the way Donovan McNabb conducted himself on the Eagles practice field for over a decade. McNabb was loosey goosey. He smiled a lot. Liked to joke around with his teammates. If he was errant on a pass he would react and motion and yell, but he did it all with a laugh and a grin. Kolb just grits his teeth and stares.

Much could made of this, especially considering how McNabb was often criticized for his mannerisms. The point here isn't to say that one way is better than the other. It's just an observation. McNabb and Kolb have, in many ways, completely different personalities -- both on the field and off.

"The rule is that a player must take responsibility for anything he puts into his body."

Sanatana's situation is one that, if I'm Roger Goddell, I see as potentially dangerous.

If he cuts Moss any kind of slack, other folks will shout, "What 'bout me?"

Moss' case isn't as noxious as Big Ben's or Plax's.

But if you're Roger, you'd prefer that Moss stepped up and announced in advance that he had been treated by Galea once news hit the media that the Evil Doc was under suspicion.

Such a move would've given all parties an out.

But that didn't happen.

So now, Goodell has to err on the side of 'the image of the league was somehow compromised' and give Santana some kind of sanction.

Otherwise, folks point to the NFL as a league that says no to street drugs but maybe to syringe borne treatments that causes others to have medals taken away and possible asterisks placed near their home run accomplishments.

And any other player caught up in an HGH/PEDs treatment situation might rise up and whine, "See, what had happened was..."

Brownie, own up, how many games did you watch last season? B/C Reedy-D was easily the most consistent d-back through the second half of the year and left his game on the F'n field. Its not like we broke the bank for the cat, and we spent a good amount of time developing him, and he is now 3 D-cords deep who think he can play. Why bash the dude, teams need cheap versatile players...And Dallas Sartz? This is then NFL they dont keep dudes just cause, he has earned a roster spot each year and has climbed the depth chart. Big ups to'em. Glad to have him on the squad. Put down the madden for a couple minutes and watch some of these dudes ball on the actual field.

And if guys are a "dime a dozen" how come the skins rarely have any. I love the cavelier attitude...dime a dozen...its easy to find "just guys"...UM No its not....

Posted by: chrislarry | May 27, 2010 10:29 AM


Calm down, CL...you're not seeing the entire argument here.

Dude said the Skins should trade Doughty to the Saints. I said he doesn't have trade value. Then it became a back and forth about whether he was a pet project for Gregggg Williams.

My stance on Doughty is this: he's a nice, blue collar role player. If you've got a playmaking safety on the other side of him, he's a solid starter. If he's your best safety, you've got problems. So your assertion that he was "easily the most consistent d-back through the second half of the year" is more condemning our defensive backfield as a whole than it is talking up Reed.

So quit making it sound like the guy is Ed f-ing Reed. He's a decent player, but nobody's giving up a draft pick for a role player at the most fungible spot on the defensive side of the ball.

4th, I think the personalities are good or bad based on what the team needs at the time. McNabb's approach obviously worked there for a long time. But now it's grown stale and his approach is a breath of fresh air in D.C. Just like JC looks like a big pickup for Oakland. It all depends on what's needed at the time.

I think the Eagles will rue the day they ran DMac outta town. Just a gut feeling...

Having lived through and thoroughly enjoyed the Skins week in and week out, year in and year out, during Gibbs I, Coach Gibbs has earned infinite tolerance from me.

We had the most success during the Snyder reign under Gibbs II. In spite of upper management gaffes. He earned the right to walk if he wanted.

His leaving didn't affect Bug Eyes. His leaving didn't hire Zorn. He had the ship moving in the right direction. Management steering back toward the iceberg was not his fault.

a delicious combination of beer, tomato juice, clam juice, lime, Tabasco, and Worcestershire sauce!

before you vomit into your coffee this morning, it's actually quite good... similar to a bloody mary, if you're into that type of thing.

very popular in Latin America, Canada, and some areas of the northern-tier United States (traditionally made with Mott's Clamato).

of course, the Anheuser-Busch version is a poor imitation of a true home-made chelada.

From Wikipedia.

"The Michelada or cerveza preparada is a term loosely defining a Mexican alcoholic beverage made with beer, lime juice and assorted sauces, spices, peppers, tomato juices or Clamato...

Miller Brewing Company produces Miller Chill which is a "Chelada-style light lager with a hint of salt and lime.". [5] Going a different route, Anheuser-Busch is manufacturing Budweiser Chelada and Bud Light Chelada as a combination of lager, clamato, lime juice, and salt."

..........................

i began watching the skins during the george allen era. and i agree gibbs 1 was fantastic. gibbs 2 was even great - given the awful circumstances (snyderrato). the fact that he got us to the playoffs, twice(!) speaks to his talent etc...as a coach.

no doubt, gibbs is the best coach i've seen us have. (i wasn't around for lombardi, and he only coached one year and so didn't have a chance to affect much.) i just wish he'd finished what he started the second time. maybe it's because we were so bad before and after gibbs2 that it hurt so much when he left.

and of course his leaving unexpectedly is what set off the whole williams/blache/zorn debacle. can't help but think that would have turned out better had gibbs coached that last year like he was "supposed to". and i suppose if his heart wasn't really going to be in it, then maybe it's better he left...

...and on the other hand...like i said earlier, that whole debacle may have led to vinny's firing. so...maybe that was gibbs' plan all along....genius...

all that said, i STILL don't give a darn about his nascar stuff...

Again...you're laying blame at Gibbs' doorstep that he doesn't deserve.

Look at it this way: just like you're saying "his leaving unexpectedly is what set off the whole williams/blache/zorn debacle", you could make the case he would have never had to come back in the first place if the Skins weren't a laughing stock in the wake of the Spurrier debacle. He stepped away from a largely successful post-football career to come back and try and dig the organization he loves out of a years-old sh*thole. I guarantee you there's no other coach in NFL history that loves his former team enough to even think about attempting what Gibbs did.

And saying his leaving is what made the ensuing coaching search a debacle isn't right...Gibbs gave them plenty heads up. He retired right after the season, not in March. The only way he could've told them sooner would have been if he retired immediately after the Seattle loss. What made it a nightmare was that the FO was completely unprepared for the possibility that a 67 year-old coach could call it quits on the heels of one of the most trying seasons of his storied career. That and nobody of note seemed to want the job. That's bad planning on Danny and Vinny's part, not on Gibbs.

And even still, they promptly moved the organization in the COMPLETE OPPOSITE DIRECTION of the course Gibbs set for them. You can't fault Gibbs for that either.

I'm not saying you shouldn't be disappointed that he left. I'm pretty sure we all were. I just think it's incredibly misguided to fault the man for retiring after 4 years on the job.

Our old friend JC is making friends in Oakland...

Raiders' left tackle prefers Campbell's footwork to Russell's
Posted by Michael David Smith on May 27, 2010 12:11 PM ET
We previously noted that Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey may have a better year in 2010 because he'll be playing with a better quarterback. The same could be true of Raiders left tackle Mario Henderson.

Speaking with reporters at the Raiders' organized team activities, Henderson praised new quarterback Jason Campbell for having the proper footwork when he drops back to pass -- making it easier for Henderson to know how to block for him. And while Henderson didn't criticize JaMarcus Russell by name, his comments suggest that he found it frustrating to block for Russell.

"Now I can get adjusted as to where [Campbell] steps up in the pocket, [and] I know he's accurate, as far if it's a seven-step drop, I know he'll take seven; if it's five, I know he's going to take five," Henderson said. "That's good to be accurate."

While Russell suffered from lethargy addiction, Henderson praises the hard work and study habits of Campbell.

"For him to be able to come here, be able to grasp the offense and take control of it as fast as he did, it's amazing," Henderson said of Campbell. "It just goes to show you the type of guy he is and the type of hard worker and studier he is."

Just as Russell's three years in Oakland showed the type of hard worker and studier he is.
