Montgomery, Golston Likely to Be Busy (Updated)

With the addition of a Pro Bowl player in defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, young defensive linemen Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston are expected to play less than they did last season.

Obviously, the Redskins would prefer to have Haynesworth on the field as much as possible, and Cornelius Griffin is the other starting tackle. Barring injuries, Montgomery and Golston should participate in a smaller percentage of plays.

But Haynesworth has not played an entire 16-game schedule since he was a rookie in 2002. He missed two games with Tennessee last season. Griffin also missed two games last season.

Regardless of the impact Haynesworth has on the defense, it would be foolish to expect him to do something this season he hasn't done throughout his career. Haynesworth just is not an every-down guy, and Griffin could use more of a breather in games at this stage of his career.

Defensive coordinator Greg Blache knows exactly what he has in Haynesworth and Griffin, who could form one of the best interior-line tandems in the league. Haynesworth is a big-play player and Griffin is a run stuffer, but they're not kids.

So it was no surprise when Blache said he had not spoken with Montgomery and Golston about having reduced roles this season. To be sure, their roles will be different with Haynesworth in the house, but Montgomery and Golston still could be busy.

"They're professionals," Blache said of Montgomery and Golston. "When you go to work, your editor doesn't talk to you about everything that's going to happen. Certainly, you're a man, you understand this is your job, things can happen. I would think they would be kind of retarded if they couldn't figure out, 'We got a guy we just paid a hundred [million] dollars to, he's going to play and take some of these snaps that you had last year.' They've handled it well."

Montgomery and Golston have had strong camps, Blache said, and there are opportunities out there for them.

"Part of getting the new contract is doing the job you have now," Blache said. "And if you can handle the role you have now, people are going to recognize that and you'll get that next contract.

"If you can't adjust to your role, then you have problems. A big part of being a professional is handling whatever role is thrown at you. They've handled it well and I suspect that they'll continue to handle it well."

Quick, Post-Practice Update

Rick Maese tweets that Jim Zorn doesn't expect the Redskins' 1st-team O or D to play much more than 1 quarter Saturday and seems pleased with how camp has gone. ... @trentshelton tweets: I will be taking a skins fan to eat sunday so who shall it be!!!!! ... @dcsportsbog tweets: So Jason Campbell's dad was the substitute teacher for Brett Favre's daughter last year.

Plaxico pleads guilty
Posted by Mike Florio on August 20, 2009 10:03 AM ET
Wow.

As it turns out, there is one circumstance during which a defendant pleads guilty at his arraignment.

It happen when a plea bargain already has been worked out.

Per Arthur Staple of Newsday (via Twitter), receiver Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty this morning to felony weapons charges, and he'll serve a two-year prison term.

News of the deal came at 9:30 a.m. ET (just as the hearing was scheduled to begin) from John Eligon of the New York Times.

The most surprising aspect of the deal, in our view, is that Manhattan D.A. Robert Morgenthau left on the table the two-year deal that Burress previously had spurned, even after Burress essentially confessed to the crime in a Hail Mary effort before the grand jury.

Some prosecutors would have yanked the deal, adding another six or eight months, or maybe a year, to any future offers.

Then again, maybe that's what Morgenthau did -- and maybe that's what got Burress to make the first prudent decision he has made in years.

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | August 20, 2009 10:19 AM

Greg, your interpretation of something does not make it an undisputable fact. You probably live in a nice neighborhood. Do you have an alarm on your house, and if so, don’t you use it? Or do you sleep with a machete under your pillow, and “only” a machete because you are not allowed to have a gun due to prior incidents in your home town? 4th recently said he is essentially like Mike Vick and indeed has turned his life around. Let’s ask 4th if he sleeps with a machete or a gun under his pillow….
I agree with Dik….These “facts” you continue to allude to are only your interpretation, except the part about him actually having an alarm maybe. Aren’t you choosing to ignore the fact that he slept with a machete? And what other facts do you have than reading about what Clinton Portis says about his good buddy?

Anyway I’m not saying that he wasn’t trying to turn his life around, of course I only “know” this from what I’ve read…same as anyone else. Wilbon talks to more NFL players and coaches than I do though. Besides, his main point was that he was not SURPRISED that it happened to ST. Everyone takes his quote about embracing the thug lifestyle and just goes all ape-sjk about what a liar Wilbon is and blah blah blah. I said it before and I will say it again…I wasn’t surprised either. I wouldn’t have predicted it, but I wasn’t surprised. When I heard/read the headlines that a Redskins player had been shot, I immediately thought it was ST. Mark Brunell did not immediately come to mind as a guy who might get shot; it was ST. But most of the hero worshippers up here just don’t want to hear anything that disparages their picture of what he was, and anyone who tries to say anything negative just gets called a racist, or ignorant of the “facts” or whatever.

My favorite Redskin of all time is John Riggins. If he were to die of liver failure and Wilbon or whoever said that Riggo was a drunk and we all know it and that his lifestyle of boozing and partying is what caught up to him and killed him I wouldn’t get all up in arms screaming that he quit drinking years ago, had turned his life around, get the FACTS, you lying scumbag and blah blah blah. Anyone who drinks like he DID runs the risk of having it kill you later in life. I just don’t understand how some people are so affected by the death of a guy they didn’t even know personally….you’d think he was some peole’s brother or best friend they way they react……sheesh.

My god peeps, can't we just let Sean Taylor rest in peace?

All the debating about why he was shot, did he turn his life around, or preconceived notions on the part of Wilbon, or even that gaping a-hole Colin Cowherd (That's who you should really be pissed at anyway!) doesn't mean sh**!

None of that stuff you all are talking will bring him Sean Taylor, or make things right. What kind of solace is to be taken in that stuff?

His family lost a son, and a father. The Redskins lost a comrade, and one hell of a player. How does debating his lifestyle, or some a-hole journalist's opinion of him brings Sean Taylor back into their lives?

It doesn't.

Every time I think about Sean Taylor it still really, really bothers me... It's crazy I never met the man, never seen the man, but when I heard he passed I took it like a close relative had died.

It still shakes me up to this day, even right now...

Perhaps the best thing we should do is reflect positively on the man and just let him rest now.

RIP #21

dlhaze, sometimes you connect with someones personality, the way that they are or what they represent.

All relationships are founded on understanding. I understood Sean Taylor. Everything, from his legal troubles to his late hits on the field.

That understanding then grows to respect. I respected the man, not just because he played FS for the 'skins, but just because I have respect for most, even those who I don't like or don't really get along with, you know what I'm saying?

The respect, which is usually the limit with me, then becomes admiration. You understand and respect a person, or thing so much, you find yourself in admiration over it.

I have no problem saying that I admired Sean Taylor. Although he never talked to the media, just some of the things I've read about him prior and after his death, I felt connected like he was family. He reminded me of more than a few of my cousins - especially "I don't take no bs" attitude.

Didn't mean to go all Oprah/Dr. Phil and stuff, but you at then end of your post stated: "I just don’t understand how some people are so affected by the death of a guy they didn’t even know personally….you’d think he was some people’s brother or best friend they way they react..."

Maybe that will help you understand a little better.

Can we stop the ST21 talk? We all love the man for his play on the field and question him for some of his decisions off of it. He was a great player who made some mistakes, it happens. Tragic what happened to him, as he was on his way to becoming one of the best safeties to ever play the game. However, we have beaten this discussion into ground so many times that it is just a waste. Great football player, not so great a man who was attempting to resurrect his life. It is too bad that he did some of the things he did, but it is not racist, or out of line to comment on those things... it is just life.

Moving on, I think we will have one of the best Dline in the league here. With Gholston and Monty backing up Griff and Haynesworth... thats quality depth right there. Wew have 2 backups that could start for a few teams around the league and we have 2 starters that would without a doubt be a starter for any team in the league (when healthy... griff is one of the best dts in the game.. dont believe me read anything Greg Williams said about the man). With that Daniels is still a solid run support guy, and if Orakpo can dominate a team without Fat Albert in there... just imagine what he can do with him... things should be good for the skins D this year... now all we gotta hope is that the O can be decent.

My problem with crossing that word off is that is the 'rose by any other name' argument:

A person who says 'retard' with ill intentions will say 'mentally disabled' with ill intentions. Even in some corners 'mentally disabled' is rejected in favor of 'developmentally challenged.'

So does avoided the language suggest strength of character for considering others feelings? Or does it indicate a spineless capitulation to ignorant society?

Maybe you should change it to peoplearelazy? Right. You're too lazy.

How about if we change it for you? Right. We're too stupid.

The funny thing is, that peoplearestupid was taken so I had to use peoplearestupid1.

Well, I wasn't going to post this earlier, but since the discussion continues - My sister has Down Syndrome, and when I was younger, I used to take off after people for using "retarded" when they meant that something was stupid or idiotic. It bugged me then.

Now, I don't feel the same way - I think it's making the distinction between malicious use - I don't see many people who are actually saying "hey that dude's just like a retarded person" or trying to insult a person who is mentally handicapped. The word has just become part of our vernacular, whether we like it or not.

" I would think they would be kind of retarded if they couldn't figure out"

Why is it ok to say retarded in this sense. I work with students with special needs and have a daughter with brain damage. Everytime I hear it used carelessly like this it stings. I think that it sends the wrong message to use it to negatively portray someone or something. People with disabilities have enough on their plate to deal with than to have someone elses shortcomings associated with them.
Would it have been ok for Blache to say,
"You would have to be a n###er if they couldn't figure it out." I don't think so, so please Blache try to pick your words more carefully.

I give Blache bonus points for saying retarded to a reporter in the PC capital of the world.
