Horton Studied Film at UCLA -- and Still Does So

From Jason Reid:

Rookie safety Chris Horton has displayed a knack for is timing. Even when he has been out of position in some of Washington's defensive alignments, Horton often has recovered in time to make plays.

"I watch a lot of film," said Horton, whose extensive studying of game tapes began when he was at UCLA. "Obviously, the more film you watch, the more you're going to know your opponent. It only helps you."

I don't know if anybody posted this, but Andrew Crummey was signed by Cincinnati from our practice squad.

Hate it when I post and am beeped!

Despite what happened against the Rams, I cannot believe that some think that what is written here on RI has any relation to what the team is thinking.

Because I say that CP should be rested (which I do not) does not mean that Zorn or CP think that he needs to be rested.

If I look past the lowly Lions does not mean that the Skins Coaches are also looking at the game coming up against the Steelers.

Unbelievable! (was going to use caps here...)

Could you folks answer a few questions for me?

1. Is Jason La Canfora the guy pictured on the top left in the article above?

2. Other than the articles, does he post here in the comments section and if so what is his user name?

3. Is Jason La Canfora related to Mr. Snyder as in Seed of Danny?

I kind of agree with some of the stuff you just said. It was a horrible loss at home. The game was winnable, and even for all their blunders, they almost pulled it out. I'm not happy with the loss, and its actually all the more infuriating because it was so winnable. You gotta have those games up here. I'm not making excuses. I'm just totally disagreeing with your analysis and assertation that Zorn screwed the pooch during the week before the game.

This is my only beef with your original statement: You said they lost the Rams game because the "rookie coach Zorn" allowed them to look past the Rams. That is patently false.

And to me "I knew we were not ready to play" is a pretty loud statement about a coach's ability to prepare the team. Allen said it, not me, and not Zorn.

captjim, are you on the level?

Jason La Canfora is the guy pictured at the top left, yes.

I don't believe he's participated in the comments down here for... oh, over a year now. When he did, he always posted under his own name.

I don't get your last question. Making a funny, I guess?

Are you any relation to Captain Ron?

Gentleman: this is the kind of rookie we can use more of, a kid that is not worried about spending his money he is concerned about getting better and it shows each and every Sunday,i have watched a lot of football and Chris Horton is serious about his job his approach,enthusiasm,the way he plays his position don't get me wrong i liked Doughty a lot but truth be told Horton can downright play, PERIOD!!.

I love this kid!

He is always around the ball, and his open-field tackling is superb.

Redskins #48 means HORTON.

Stephen Who?
