Rocky McIntosh says he's fine. But go ask coach

Inside linebacker Rocky McIntosh, who sat out the first day of practice this week after suffering a mild concussion in the Green Bay game, said he was doing fine Thursday before practice at Redskins Park.

"How am I? What did Coach [Mike] Shanahan say about it?," McIntosh asked. "I'm fine, but go talk to Coach Shanahan. He can give you an update. He'll provide you guys with a more accurate update than I can."

McIntosh is tied with inside Linebacker London Fletcher and cornerback DeAngelo Hall for sixth in the league with 46 tackles, according to the NFL's game statistics information system. Washington strong safety LaRon Landry leads the NFL with 52 tackles.

"Just trying to keep up with our leader, London," McIntosh said. "They changed the scheme, so it made it a little more even for me. I'm just glad to be out there playing, and playing well."

So, you plan to play Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts at FedEx Field? "Ah, go ask coach," McIntosh said. "Coach can answer that."

I'm more disappointed in Kyle's lack of creativity in getting Davis involved than I am in Davis himself.

Hmmm, sounds like something beantown would say in regards to DT11.

Do you think it's coaching decisions that are the problem p1 ? FD86 had a sure TD pass sail over his head because he didn't adjust to the throw. maybe coach has seen that play to many times in practice, who knows. facts show this 2008 draft class to be a non factor, right here, right now.

Remember when the Wizards of Redskins Park wanted Lance Briggs, but wouldn't part with RMac as a part of the deal?

How's that looking now?

Whatever issues we had with his coverage have been put away with his becoming a solid inside linebacker.

LL's arrival was celebrated earlier today.

Hmmmm, considering I said I was disappointed in Kyle Shanahan, I think I couldn't be more obvious in saying it is a coaching decision.

It's hard for me to fathom how Jim Zorn could draw up some schemes that make Fred Davis look like a Pro-Bowler while Kyle Shanahan has him blocking on FGs.

And this is nothing like DT11; who apart from one single game where he went over 100 yards receiving, NEVER showed that he was anything more than just another WR.

"Ah, go ask coach," McIntosh said.

How come Cooley can't say this?

Posted by: monk811 | October 14, 2010 2:40 PM | Report abuse

The deal with Davis appears to be that when he knows he's starting, he'll put some effort into learning his place in the scheme and trying to make a few plays. But if he thinks he probably only has a limited (or no) role in this week's game, well then he tends to coast… and take it easy -- a sure fire recipe for NOT working yourself into the scheme for this week’s action.

Recall that Davis really didn't come around much at all last year -- that is, until Cooley went down with the ankle injury and the discredited former coaching staff was sort of forced to take him on as a special project -- who needed lots of extra reps and a significant amount of hands on coaching to get ready for the next game.

Up until that point, most Redskin Outsiders had regarded him as an okay backup player who might generally do okay when pressed into limited service, but he was not the sort of guy who puts in a lot of extra effort and overtime into being ready just in case the first stringer goes down.

He also earned some criticism for not paying attention at team meetings, for not thoroughly learning the playbook -- and for not finding other ways to make himself useful.

But with lots of extra support and assistance, he honestly made a difference after Cooley went down did a pretty good job of executing his assigned plays.

But that was last year... and we should not forget that Mike Shanahan broke down the tape on every play from last year... and for that matter, every play since.

Anyone can talk a good game, but the tape seldom deceives.

So now with Cooley back and doing well, and Davis apparently relegated back into a second-string role, we are left to wonder if the current coaching staff has the time, interest, patience and perseverance to bring Davis along yet again... and encourage him to embrace the opportunities he has been given... yet again.

I also suspect that barring another major injury to Cooley, Davis will continue to have a very limited and diminishing role in the current scheme of things.

Curious as to who the stud LG-C-RG that were available in round 2 of 2008 for the Skins? It seems to me that the 2nd round class of that year was poo-poo for just about any position. I could be wrong.

They wasn't no stud OL in round 2. But they was over 30% of round 2 selects that was WR. And they was some good ones like DJax, Avery and Eddie Royale. Vinny had two shots and missed with both. Surprise, surprise.

-----

Where we really missed out on the 2008 draft class was the RB position. Just take a gander at the RBs from that draft that were taken after our initial 1st round pick (which we traded on draft day):

- Felix Jones (1st)
- Rashard Mendenhall (1st)
- Chris Johnson (1st)
- Matt Forte (2nd)
- Ray Rice (2nd)
- Kevin Smith (3rd)
- Jamaal Charles (3rd)
- Steve Slaton (3rd)
- Tashard Choice (4th)

That's the entire list of RBs taken in the first 4 rounds. Honestly, put the names on a piece of paper and throw a dart. Any first or second round RB on that list is a bona-fide starter. Four out of the five are pro-bowl caliber players. Any single one of them would be more helpful than either DT11 or MK12.

What a whiff.

Demarco Murray from Oklahoma is probably the best of a pedestrian SR class followed by Royster the Penn State back....and I don't trust Penn State running backs.

@jumbo5383- Uh, I think you um, missed the point of his question. Samson didn't ask how this year's rookie backs look, I think he was asking about this years collegiate backs in terms of the draft.

~~~
@stu27

Your post supports mine, however unintentional. This year's draft at RB will only be good if underclassmen come out. Your list is made up of Sophs and Jrs. Otherwise, it's going to be tough to nail down who going to be good. D.Murray can be, if he bulks up, he's 6'1, but only 207 lbs listed, so he'll need to get stronger, while trying to keep the speeed-he's fast and agile-think a very poor man's Marcus Allen...a VERY poor man's. Royster the Penn State SR reminds one of Larry Johnson, but again, I don't trust Penn State backs, for that matter I don't trust any Penn State prospect other than LBs(it's Bust State to me). Then there's Nic Grigsby the Arizona SR. His 1st two years, he was way more dynamic-he ran like a pocket Amp Lee-not very fast,or a slasher, but shifty. But as I've watched him the last two years, some of that specialness is gone.
So I respectfully disagree, the RB class for this year is rough, particularly without those underclassmen.

Posted by: ArmchairGM | October 14, 2010 4:52 PM | Report abuse

I am aware of the fact that A.Quarless, the Green Bay TE, is a good looking rookie and Cameron Wake, the Miami LB/DE is all of it rushing the passer-he looks like the best young pass rusher in the league( keep in mind that our guy Orakpo doesn't play DE fulltime whereas Webb, listed as a LB, does) and both are from Penn State. The school has produced more busts than beasts to in my estimation, however.
