Redskins Waiting on Thomas

Malcolm Kelly appeared handily to win the battle for the starting flanker job in the preseason, but the team hopes fellow second-year wide receiver Devin Thomas also emerges as a major contributor.

Thomas has the talent, several players said. The problem is he still often lacks focus, which is a big problem when you're being paid to do a job.

"Devin adds a lot of speed to our offense," quarterback Jason Campbell said. "He's a quick guy, and we've seen what Devin can do at times. But with Devin, he has to understand that it's about doing it every play.

"It's not a play here, a play there. Every play is important. You've got to be where you're supposed to be every time. If you want people to depend on you, you've always got to be focused."

Thomas's focus waned for a couple of weeks during the preseason, but he finished strong. In the final two games against New England and Jacksonville, Thomas appeared interested while running routes, showed sure hands in catching balls away from his body and gained extra yardage after catches.

I expect Kelly to start opposite top wideout Santana Moss on Sept. 13 when the Redskins open the season against the New York Giants at Giants Stadium. Thomas will continue to get his chances, though. The rest is up to him.

"He can definitely help us stretch the field more and more," Campbell said. "Devin definitely brings that, I believe that, we just need him to be ready every play."

Let me say that I am a long time RI blogger and fan.

I don't hate Snyder as much as some others do. I have nothing to gain in hating Daniel Snyder. Do I want the Skins to win...hell yeah...Do I think Snyder has been a poor owner...yes, at times, but I think the man wants to win, but may just be figuring out how. I don't cry for Snyder because when you're at the top, you'll always be damned...

BUT...I think this team may be headed in the right direction. We are not a complete team or a contender, but with our depth on defense and some new weapons on offense, we could be very good...

As far as the ticket thing goes, some of ya'll are such hypocrites...half of ya'll own businesses that would do the same thing if I breached your contract.

Have a good weekend!

Posted by: chrislarry | September 4, 2009 3:51 PM |

It happens when you have new, 1st time HCs. They don't have the network that long time HCs do so they hire blind and then discover it was a mistake. Better to correct now than to suffer through a full season of discord and rancor, esp when the pressure is on to produce results. Zorn didn't have a network either so he ended up hiring himself as OC and "coaching" the other coaches, which is amost as bad as having to do what Morris and Haley did.

Posted by: EncinoMan | September 4, 2009 4:28 PM | Report abuse

Make that 4 O-coordinators:

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills coach Dick Jauron is committed to sticking with the no-huddle attack entering the regular season -- just not with the offensive coordinator who spent the year installing it.

Unhappy with his offense's dismal performance this past month, Jauron fired Turk Schonert on Friday, a day after the Bills closed the preseason with a 17-6 loss to Detroit. Quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt will take over the play-calling duties, while running backs coach Eric Studesville will continue in his role as run game coordinator.

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | September 4, 2009 4:32 PM | Report abuse

EncinoMan, I know that Chan Gailey (KC) was a hold over that the new guy inherited. Jagonski (TB) ... wasn't he the guy who lost his HC job at Boston College for daring to interview with the Jets? Already forgot (don't care) about the third fire.

Posted by: dcsween | September 4, 2009 4:32 PM | Report abuse

I am not saying that firing them was a bad move, time will tell. But it is certainly abnormal for three of them to be canned a week or so out from first week. And I would not be shocked if all three teams started flat on offense.

Again anyone want to cite a year that even 1 was?

Sorry for wondering aloud about a NFL story...

This makes sense as the practice squad.. no CBs or OTs that could be picked up by other teams before the final rosters are settled. I think it is a good roster although I am surprised by Skolnitsy.. I did not see his number pop up on plays.

When Giants defensive tackle Jay Alford found out he tore ligaments in his knee two weeks ago, the team held out hope he could still avoid season-ending surgery.

That hope extinguished Friday, when coach Tom Coughlin announced that Alford will miss the rest of the season. The valuable backup suffered a partially torn ACL and the team apparently gave up hope the injury could not heal without surgery.

While losing Alford is a blow to the team's excellent defensive line depth, fellow defensive tackles Rocky Bernard and Chris Canty have been returning to health after training camp injuries.

Chiefs chop eight, including McIntosh

Posted by Mike Florio on September 4, 2009 4:33 PM ET

The Kansas City Chiefs have announced the release of eight players, as they attempt to work toward 53 players by 6:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Gone are fullback Jed Collins, cornerback Travis Daniels, cornerback Londen Fryar, center Eric Ghiaciuc, tackle Damion McIntosh, linebacker Corey Smith, tackle Herb Taylor, and guard Tavares Washington.

The biggest surprise is McIntosh, an eight-year starter who was due to make $2.2 million this year. He started 16 games last year at right tackle for the Chiefs, and he has been a regular starter at left and right tackle since 2001 for the Chargers and Dolphins, too.

In all, McIntosh has starter 111 career games.

Because he's a vested veteran, he instantly becomes a free agent, and he likely won't be out of work for long.

Maybe you're right and he's got something left in the tank but as bad as the Chiefs have been recently (and yes a lousy offensive line was one of the main reasons for their decline - which is why they drafted the OL from UVA last year) I wouldn't get too excited about him. Just sayin.

It really doesn't matter which QB plays for the Skins or is kept on the team. Jim Zorn runs on 2nd and 7, 2nd and 8, 2nd and 9, and 2nd and 10. Whomever is back there under center aint got a chance to complete a pass on 3rd and 7, 3rd and 8, 3rd and 9, and 3rd and 10. Let me call plays, please. Pass when you're not supposed to and run when you're not supposed to. This gives your line, QB, RB and wide receivers the advantage they need.

Posted by: getitritegov | September 4, 2009 7:49 AM |

------------------

I am generally a "positive" fan, but I do agree with your assessment. I believe Zorn, like Gibbs, has a mental block regarding how to call plays. I believe he overthinks it while the defenses just play to our weaknesses.

I believe going from 6-2 to 2-6 could be partially balmed on play-calling. Like there is a"quota" to be met. We are down 14 points, there is 7 minutes left, it's 2nd and 8: please either pass or call a trick play. There is no shame in calling 5 passes in a row if that is what is needed. Using run to set up the passing game is a historical consideration. it doesn't fool any one south of Detroit.

Peace coming at you, straight from the underground....

Can someone educate me about what is wrong with the QB stepping back and rolling to one side or the other? It seems that would allow bringing more help on one side and the time for the receiver to run down field. Rypien made a career out of it. I see Brady do it all the time. It appears to me to fit JC quite well. Is it the curse of WCO that prohibits it? Help?
