Tryon Puts Rocky Rookie Season Behind Him

Cornerback Justin Tryon quickly got off to a rough start with the Redskins after being selected in the fourth round of the 2008 draft.

In an introductory conference call with reporters, Tryon immediately inserted his foot into his mouth, making bold predictions about taking a starting job from one of the team's veteran corners, among other things. His comments were so outrageous that even the loquacious Fred Smoot thought the kid had said too much, prompting Smoot to pull Tryon aside for some sage counseling.

"I told him, 'You can't come in here like that,' " Smoot, who has mentored Tryon, recalled recently. "The young fella knew he made a mistake, and I just let him know his teammates are here for him. But you just have to let your play do the talking."

And that didn't go so well, either.

Tryon, listed at 5-feet-9 and 183 pounds, often appeared overmatched in coverage last preseason. He mostly played special teams and had little impact defensively.

Humbled by his experience as a rookie, Tryon said he did not rest long in the offseason. "I worked a whole lot in the offseason on my footwork, my hand placement and getting in and out of my breaks," he said. "I was just trying to be faster on the field than when I first came along," he said. "It's coming along, slowly but surely."

Tryon has made a marked improvement from this time last year, coaches and players said. He has appeared much more comfortable in the Skins' defensive scheme and confident with his technique.

"To me, Justin did the right thing to do, which is going on and working on stuff in the offseason that is going to keep you good," cornerback coach Jerry Gray said. "A lot of times, guys take time off and act like, 'Well, I can just get it back when I need it.' Well, if you've got to get that back, then that means work. And if you don't work, you're not getting it back 'til over a longer period of time.

"Justin is on his way to getting ready to go and play well in the preseason and be ready to go during in the regular season. That's what you want. You don't want to have to play catch-up or say, 'Well, I'm going to get ready during preseason. Tryon has done a tremendous job. Am I afraid to go play him? No. When a guy shows me he's going to work hard in the offseason, he's going to deserve chances to go out there and play."

In Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage at Redskins Park, Tryon intercepted one of Jason Campbell's passes. He also was called for pass interference.

"The game is slowing down for me," Tryon said. "Just with everything, my mind was kind of swirling last year. Now, I'm recognizing route concepts and I'm just trying to jump routes and play smart."

Said Smoot: "You can see the young fella is getting it now."

Barring injury or other unforeseen circumstances, DeAngelo Hall and Carlos Rogers will be the starting corners and Smoot the nickel corner. No one in the organization has told me they envision Tryon becoming a starter, but next season he could fill the spot Smoot currently occupies, one team official told me.

Of course, I'd still prefer to see Tyron do it in games, which, as we all know, is all that matters. But from where this kid was last season, he seems to have come much further faster than I could have imagined.

Tryon will have the First interception. Okay, maybe the Second or Third. Or not.

That's nice and good, but I'm more excited that our starting LT and LG are in pads and preumably practicing than our 4th corner losing the Huggies.

Funk, haven't you learned anything about the way this team operates? If the Redskins had any interest, at all, in Vick, they would already have signed him and he would have played in last Saturday's scrimmage. If he's not signed yet, he will never be signed.

Posted by: talent_evaluator | August 10, 2009 10:50 AM | Report abuse


I understand that is the standard operating procedure of this team. But I think in this situation Snerrato knows they can't use the same tac -

1) Their open pursuit of Culter and then Sanchez, and their subsequent "patching things up" with Campbell, means they have a very short leash to operate with regarding the pursuit of another QB. They need to be suave, down-low, behind-the-scenes and patient.

2) The general PR circus surrounding Vick is something they need to gauge carefully vis-a-vis fans, corporate sponsors, etc.

If they "keep interest" on the down-low and let the preseason play out, and it becomes increasingly obvious to everyone that the line sucks and JC looks terrible, it will give them the excuse they need to "bolster" that position. Especially if one of the QBs gets injured - which looks more and more likely as time goes on with this line.

Tennessee was very open about why they drafted Young in the first place: his vast upside. He got to play right away on a very strong team and for a while it looked like he was on the fast track. But as an NFL prospect he was never in a class with, say, Jay Cutler; he was always going to have to reinvent the position in order to play it. Maybe he'll do that someday. But Tennessee, at least last year, was better without him.

I thought it was silly that VY got to the ProBowl that year, but he did.

Statistically he wasn't great or very good, but he did win games for them, he was confident, decisive, passionate; he really did rally that team. That's part of what makes the drop-off alarming b/c it seems like the key thing is that he lost his head/passion for the game.

Barnes hit a guy and made him vomit.

Tryon accomplishes the same feat through his play.

That's my sense of it too. He was losing his marbles (that stuff about maybe being a suicide risk, maybe quitting football ... sounds like some medication might have been in order). I'm certain he'll be back once Kerry Collins fades again, which he will. Its just that you don't pull a solid starter when he's on a roll. To me, its Collin's job until he Brunells-out ... and then he's off to be some other team's second QB.

The non-signing of Jon Runyan is irrelevant.

The dissing of the offensive linemen in the past couple of drafts is relevant.

Again, V Cerrato claimed after the last draft that there were no lineman worthy of selecting.

But in light of the issues with R Thomas, burning a 5th round pick on D Robinson, for example, would've been the best insurance policy for all involved.

But what's done is done.

Redskins Studs and Duds
By: John Keim
Examiner Staff Writer
08/10/09 11:54 AM EDT

Studs

LB London Fletcher. Blew up a couple screens to the right flat. Once, he drilled fullback Eddie Williams, laying him flat.

LB Robert Thomas. Came up strong on a goal-line play to stop Ladell Betts off the edge. Another time he drove Williams back on a block. But Thomas must show better in coverage.

WR Malcolm Kelly. One play showed what he could do for a QB. Jason Campbell threw wide to Kelly over the middle. With other receivers, it would have been an incompletion. With Kelly, it was a chance for a nice catch. He stretched his arms wide to make the grab. He could do this more, but only if he stays healthy.

CB Fred Smoot. They tried to get him deep, going against Marques Hagans. But Hagans never came close to getting past him. Smoot made an easy pick downfield off Campbell.

DE Jeremy Jarmon. Did a nice job getting inside Scott Burley. Jarmon plays with good balance and leverage, which is why he beats a lot of the backups.

DE Lorenzo Alexander. Starting to flash more these days. In the full-team work, got off Derrick Dockery to stuff a run. Also got the better of him in one-on-one drills.

RT Mike Williams. The big fella had his issues in pass blocking; his hands MUST be more consistent. Yes, it deserves all caps. But in the run-blocking full-team work he once buried Rob Jackson and later Antonio Dixon. But just remember: One won't make the roster and the other one is on the fringe.

DT Kedric Golston. Kept beating the backups, especially RG Chad Rinehart.

Posted by: TWISI | August 10, 2009 12:31 PM | Report abuse

Duds

FB Eddie Williams. Needs to beef up to become a better lead blocker. Had a couple times today where he was involved in loud collisions on lead blocks, but he did not budge his man -- and on one occasion the defender beat him to the spot. Once, it was safety Lendy Holmes he collided with and he could not move Holmes. He has potential, but right now he's practice squad material.

RB Clinton Portis. OK, we're being tough here. But during individual drills, Portis helped out by throwing a swing pass to Marcus Mason. But Portis shotput the ball. An ugly shotput at that.

LG Derrick Dockery. In the one-on-one drill, allowed Lorenzo Alexander to shoot past him because he lunged for him (an old habit). Dock got him on the next play, but he must be more consistent.

RG Randy Thomas. We offer this excuse for Thomas: it was his first time doing this in a few days. Golston got past him once and then Alexander did another time. Thomas has looked better, but, again, first time back. In the nine-on-nine work, allowed Jarmon to get inside.

LG D'Anthony Batiste. Not sure what he was doing wrong in the full-team work, but I do know that Joe Bugel kept yelling at him, ''You're doing the same thing over and over!'' And that's not good.

S Kareem Moore. Blew the coverage in a goal-line drill because he went with the wrong guy. Gotta know it better.

TE Fred Davis. Actually had a decent day, but he dropped a perfect pass from Todd Collins in the back of the end zone. Had to reach up for it and had a defender a yard in front of him, but the ball was there.

LT Devin Clark/RG Chad Rinehart. The daily double.

Sween - I assure you that the great majority of RI posters are in fact, right wing vegetarians. The atheist part, I think will be determined the first time it's 4th and goal with 15 seconds left and the 'Skins have the ball, down by 4.

No self-respecting right wing vegetarian Skins fan believes in a diety. That's just crazy talk.

Was Ade Jimoh the worst CB to ever actually play in a game for the Skins?

Duds

FB Eddie Williams. Needs to beef up to become a better lead blocker. Had a couple times today where he was involved in loud collisions on lead blocks, but he did not budge his man -- and on one occasion the defender beat him to the spot. Once, it was safety Lendy Holmes he collided with and he could not move Holmes. He has potential, but right now he's practice squad material.

I am officially revising my nervous negative vibe about the future of Mike Sellers.

"Worst" might be an overstatement ... maybe "best at playing badly."

Explain, "...friend me...".

I'm between powerpoint directed meetings at work and snuck out to review posts, slurp coffee, and put on my Bill Gates Halloween mask.

'Cuz as you all know, I'm a mack.

That's true.

Jerry Rice is pretty much the Jim Brown of wide receivers.

No one will ever sniff Rice's career/all-time records.

"...Tryon, listed at 5-feet-9 and 183 pounds, often appeared overmatched in coverage..."


There are hobbits bigger than this guy.

Can you imagine if he was....say...5'8" and 185 pounds!!!??? Oh wait, that was Darrell Green wasn't it!!! I guess it's more about the quality than the quantity!!

Hey guys...I have been gone for a long while...with the season ramping up I had to check in. I left because of Jason LaCanforna or whatever the hell his name was. Is it safe to say he is gone? What happened to him?
