It's Storming in Loudoun

From Jason Reid:

After a storm - and the potential of lightning - cut short the first session of practice today, the Redskins plan to return to full pads at 3 p.m. and go longer than originally planned, if the weather permits, Coach Jim Zorn said.

"We kind of had this idea. There was a plan," he said. "I was kind of surprised it came so fast so early. We didn't beat the rain but we're safe rather than sorry. We got everything in except for our last two scripts.

"What we're gonna do, this afternoon, we're gonna pad-up again. We're gonna put the pads on, finish what we didn't get done this morning and add one more afternoon script."

New Pro Bowl defense end Jason Taylor, acquired Sunday from the Miami Dolphins, participated in his first practice with the team. Taylor only worked "in all the individual drills," Zorn said. "He got in all his reps."

With Taylor (he's wearing No. 55) only in his first full day with the team, defensive end Demetric Evans remained with the first-team defense with the Redskins went 11 on 11.

Taylor often stood near defensive coordinator Greg Blache, listened to Blache make calls and asked questions.

"He was very compatible with his new teammates, getting to know them," Zorn said of Taylor. "I thought things went well."

Good to hear that J. Taylor is trying to gel with his team. With all the hype of his arrival, it would be easy to get the idea he was more important than he is.

No question better safe than sorry.

From the link in the last thread with Don Banks' Skins article ... he's getting warm ... but not quite there yet:

"No one in Washington has more reason to be relieved than Carter, who won't attract nearly as much attention from opposing blockers with Taylor in burgundy and yellow."

Wasn't the Zornbrella (TM) specifically designed for these adverse weather circumstances?

I know that this isn't supposed to be said since everyone hear is euphoric about the JT trade. And I must admit, I'm excited about the possibility of a finally potent pass rush from our line and not having to blitz the house to get to the QB. However, I get a real big what-if in my head when I read about Terrell Suggs holding out and wonder how much more it would have cost to get a guy who is 23 versus a guy who is 33. Oh well, in Vinny we trust right?

Thats a good point, but Im sure it would have cost us more given his age.

I don't know, Nate, those things had that rickety FEMA look to them.

this is why we need to have a indoor practice facility attached to Skinspark. That and it would help on 110 degree days, From what I can tell the layout is 3 grass fields 1 turf. cant we get 1 grass too indoor.

zjfr2, Suggs isn't going no where. Don't be stupid.
