Rogers Not Participating (Updated)

In the morning practice at Redskins Park, Carlos Rogers did not participate in the 11-on-11 drills and we're not sure why. He continued to watch from the sidelines as the team went to 7-on-7 drills. We'll be following up on that.

First to be worried about Carlos. Maybe his hands hurt.

So how did the players who did practice perform?

"7 on 7" is a passing drill--how do the quarterbacks (Daniels/Brennan/Campbell) look?

Any standouts for the 5th receiver spot?

Just asking....

Jason, I know JLa is your buddy, but I have been reading this blog from jump and he started off very impartial, but over time became a Redskins basher.

I think impartial reporting is what this blog needs. I little opinion is most welcome, but balance is key.

That wouldn't keep him out of practice. Only thing he uses his hands for is .... well, it's not a part of football.

From what I hear Moe it seems that maybe Eloi seems like the front runner so far.

Just came back from practice. Loved watching Orakbo and Haynesworth lining up on right side, looked great. Offense didnt do very well. Highligts where a seem td to Yoder and a Campbell scramble. Wasnt uimpressed with the O.

Your Honor, it's your freakin' blog now, that's your name and your picture up top, so you go on and write what you want to write, just as each of us dumb-dumbs out here in internet land do.

You can't please all of the people all of the time, especially in a free-for-all context like this. So while I certainly understand the desire to please the audience, you can drive yourself nuts if you focus on that too much.

Report, opine, whatever you want, just keep it coming... ultimately I think that's what we hamsters want, a steady flow of posts now that Real Footbally Events are unfolding in Ashburn.

Just a suggestion, but you may have a few more readers if you do EXACTLY what you've been doing! Or you could invite the "jilted children coalition" for beers and act like a spoiled brat. Do you have an ipod too?!

Isn't it time to let go and move on? Why don't you change your screen name? Drop Lacantwrite and go with Lacantreid.

You mean let it go like, constantly bringing up the Jason Taylor trade or the lack of draft picks or not drafting lineman or Dan and Vinny did _____ or "over-paying" for players or b*tching that J Reid is being too soft? Is that what you mean about let it go?

Here is the difference. Our pick from the Taylor trade is going to make Miami's wildcat a monster with Pat White playing QB. we still don't know what the future of our line is. Snyds always gonna do a new ___ but JaLaCa is gone, and all he did was hurt your little feelings cuz he insulted your team.

Lacantwrite, such vitriol! Sheesh...

"Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you."

Just got home from morning practice - the unquestioned highlight of the morning was Portis decelating Haynesworth out of the backfield. Tell me somebody else saw that??!!! I didn't think I could love 26 anymore than I already did...

Otherwise, Thomas looked sharp, Cooley was Cooley, Kelly seemed to be in 3rd gear which makes me wonder about that knee, JC looked pretty good, Haynesworth needs to wake up, Orakpo is a physical specimen but didn't do much (not surprising given he just signed), and Mike Williams actually looks pretty svelte!!

HAIL

a. "JC looked pretty good,.."

b. "Wasn't uimpressed with the O,..."

So which observation is correct?

And does the offense look bad because the defense is that good, or is the offense just is what it is: offensive?

Sorry for the 'rip'.

"Our pick from the Taylor trade is going to make Miami's wildcat a monster with Pat White playing QB."

Given how the team drafted this past April, I really wonder what the Wizards of Redskins Park would've done with that 2nd round pick.

The smart money says the team's belief in Mike Williams and J Bridges is a little misplaced.

The redskins face teams with elite defensive linemen and are trying to use scraps and fill-ins to match up.

That 2nd round pick should've been a young o-lineman.

But if they had that pick, do you think the FO would've drafted one?

Doubt it.

Just came back from the practice as well. I came away impressed with Orakpo rushing from the DE position. In a 1 on 1 match up with Samuels, Rak's speed rush was too much from Samuels to handle. Thomas made some really good and tough catches. Kelly had a good practice. His size caused the Db's problems. On a deep pass down the sideline, Kelly got position on Hall and Kelly's size kept Hall from making a play. The DL is causing the OL problems in pass pro. JC looks sharp. and BMW looked good in his run blocking,but needs work in pass pro.

If the O-line progresses to a point in the following weeks that it can actually protect Campbell against our D,that would be a very good sign.I hope Samuels hasnt lost a step,sounds like he's having trouble with speed rushers.
