Kelly May Be 'Odd Man Out' Sunday

From Jason Reid:

With the health of the team improving, rookie wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, who had a good week of practice, could be inactive again, Coach Jim Zorn said. Kelly only has been active in two games as he struggled to overcome knee problems and improve his route running.

"Malcolm Kelly is the guy that I thought had a very, very good week of practice, but may be the odd man out," Zorn said, "based on other injuries" improving.

What a surprise. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between him and the guys holding the Z-shades.

Playing the game now for sure.

Kelly will be active, just a hunch.

Kelly will be a stud and soon. Just a hunch but he'll be the guy doing things that no one else can in this offense.

If the other receivers are healthy, why even have Kelly practice? Should have given him the week off to full rest that knee.

So basically Kelly needs to do a better job of timing his injuries.

Hmmm, is Kelly going to be a difference maker this week?

Posted by: zcezcest1 | October 17, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

Good to hear he had a good week of practice...

This was good to read as well:

LaRon Landry continued his stellar week of practice, intercepting a few passes and being in position to make big hits if, you know, it had been a gametime situation.

We're going to need this cat big time on Sunday...

That is funny. Under the last thread (before I saw this new one) I said that just because he isn't on the injury report doesn't mean he won't be inactive for Sunday. What a freakin' waste this guy is. Jesus Christ. Speaking of stealing paychecks!

Even as an impatient fan who complains about his injuries I agree.

His work this off-season with the Mercy Ships shows he's more interested in matters and events other than himself.

It's unselfish athletes that begin to truly care about the team concept and how they work with those around them and completely dedicate themselves to improving as a football player. Unfortunately, as fans we might have to wait one more year to see this holds true.

I am willing to give the guy a muligin year, but am anoyed that the front office took a risk and came into the season with 5 wr's 2 of which are injured and 1 well past his prime.

All I read was WAAAAAAHHHHHH

There's plenty to be encouraged about with our two rookie WR's. Look at Devin Thomas out there blocking downfield. Vet WR's don't do that. The great ones do. So he had a couple penalties while he was out there giving the extra efford, I'd take that anyday over a guy who pouts when he doesn't get the ball.

Both of these guys are gonna be good a year from now.

Portis scored a TD, basically untouched, out of 4 receiver set. Can't remember which game.

we have done 4 WR set this year, we actually did some last week. hate to bring this up because it is a sore spot but mr. jansen got beat alot in pass plays last week by leonard little. not trying to start anything but has anyone else noticed he still does not have his pass protection down against speed rushers?

Jason Campbell is the field general. The field general has influence over his offense. Pete Kendall would not have tried to make that catch and run, if he had confidence in Jason Campbell, or if he had respect for his authority.

In addition, Jason campbell is not good at throwing TD passes. He has yet to throw three in a game all year.

If it weren't for our running game, we wouldn't be close to 4-2. Jason Campbell is the Trent Dilfer of our team. Colt Brennan is a game winning play maker. If Jason Campbell were out this week, we would get our chance to see what we really want, Colt as QB!

I have to say that when I went to training camp and was watching (before Kelly got hurt), Kelly was CLEARLY the better of the two rookie receivers - seemed faster, got open easily (smoked Smoot all the time), made some amazing catches, etc. The bummer is of course that he was known to have injury problems, which he's had here too...

I really think he'll be a position addition IF healthy.

1. Didn't cost any draft picks

3. It just might work out.
4. If it doesn't work out, he can back up the Rock instead of backing up CP.

I don't remember anyone pointing this out. But becuase Alexander knows the passing game and undertands the termonology, it helps him be more of a threat in pass blocking does it not? And thats important to JC's health.

The alexander signing brought back memories of the Duckett signing from a couple of years back, when Betts got injured in preseason and they overreacted and signed Duckett. At that time, it affected the chemistry in the locker room as Rock and Sellers were upset about the signing and were vocal about it. This time, the've learned their lesson and didn't have to give up any picks, but it's still a distraction, and again I'm sure Rock and Sellers are not happy about it.

COWBOYS GETTING FINED FOR PACMAN SUSPENSION
Posted by Mike Florio on October 17, 2008, 3:17 p.m. EDT

That sound you hear off in the distance is Jerry Jones’ head exploding.

Per Adam Schefter of NFLN, the Cowboys will be fined up to $200,000 for the suspension of Pacman Jones.

Specifically, the Cowboys will pay Pacman’s salary — $20,588 per game — to the league for each game of his suspension. The penalty applies even if the Cowboys release Jones.

Jones’ base salary for 2008 is $700,000. This translates to a rate of $41,176 per game, which means that the fine represents 50 percent of the pay Jones would have received but for the suspension.

The fine is the result of a previously unknown (at least by us) rule that became effective on August 1. For the first player suspended on a given team during a given league year, no fine applies. For the second player suspended, a portion of the player’s salary is paid as a fine.

The amount of the fine is capped at $200,000 to $500,000 per suspension.

The new fine procedure applies to suspensions under the Personal Conduct Policy, the substance-abuse policy, and the policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances.

Because Cowboys receiver Mike Jefferson was suspended four games for violating the steroids policy, Jones’ suspension triggers the new policy.

It’s unclear whether this rule supersedes the provision effective as of June 1, which makes teams subject to fines for suspensions arising under the Personal Conduct Policy, presumably without regard to whether it was a team’s first or second suspended player of a given league year.

4th -- I did question it. Yesterday I posted something like 'how have the old vet signings worked out in the Spaghetti Gang era?" I think I also mentioned that George Allen (before you were born) knew how to bring in vets. But I also tempered it with the vet minimum thing and added that this feels very much like a Zorn driven choice.

Zorn is getting to have his say because he has delivered.

Ravens could block start of 'Skins game for D.C. viewers
NFL tells WUSA it must air finale of Baltimore-Miami if 'outcome is not certain'
By Jeff Barker | jeff.barker@baltsun.com
1:29 PM EDT, October 17, 2008
WASHINGTON

Hundreds of thousands of Washington Redskins fans could miss the opening of their team's 4:15 game Sunday because the local CBS affiliate must televise the earlier-starting Ravens game in its entirety if the game remains close.

It's a unusual scenario -- the Ravens potentially pre-empting the larger-market Redskins on their own turf -- that has Redskins fans aghast.

"Can you believe it?" one Redskins fan wrote on EXTREMESKINS.com, a team-owned chat board. "The Ravens need to lose early and fast," another fan wrote.

WUSA-TV, Washington's CBS affiliate, says it knows exactly what will happen if Redskins fans tune in for the kickoff against the Cleveland Browns and instead find the end of the Ravens at Miami Dolphins game, which starts at 1 p.m and is available in Baltimore on WJZ- 13.

"They'll go nuts," said Allan Horlick, WUSA's general manager.

But WUSA says it's bound by NFL rules. And the league isn't budging.


SOMBODY EMAIL FLORIO SO HE CAN RANT AGAINST IT AND THE NFL CAN CHANGE IT'S TUNE. I don't like Florio's opinion but the NFL seems to pay attention to his website.......

Alex, the overwhelming message I've heard on Alexander the last few days has been that when discussing him, the words "pass blocking" and "threat" should not be used in the same sentance.

His knowing the coaches is undoubtedly a point in his favor, but not his pass-blocking.
