Malcolm Kelly could miss Friday's game

Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly, still sidelined because of a hamstring injury, is not expected to play in Friday's preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills at FedEx Field.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan stopped short of ruling Kelly out but said if he's unable to practice this week, he won't see time in Friday's game.

"A hamstring injury, sometimes it's a couple of days, other times it's a couple of weeks," Shanahan said. "Obviously, his has been a little more serious than we first thought.

"But he's working extremely hard getting ready to play and he doesn't want to set himself back. Hopefully, next week he's ready to go."

Kelly was at practice Monday, doing sidework and again sitting out team drills. On the team's depth chart, he's listed as a third-teamer, behind Santana Moss and Anthony Armstrong.

Predator, HAHAHAHA, Effing Classic! I actually remember seeing that and my very first thought during Emmit's speech was that it was less an induction/acceptance speech and more of an audition for another analyst position.

Emmit Smith is a fraud. He was a decent and solid back but NO WAY was he in the class of Sweetness or Brown. He would have been carrying their pads like Dez Bryant.

Even when the crocodile tears came flowing out while addressing Moose Johnston, I could almost hear Moose thinking to himself - "you selfish prick!"

With the line that the Cowpies had in the early 90's, Marcus Mason could have won several consecutive rushing titles.

Book That!

REDSKIN CAMP DIARY -- AUGUST 9, 2010

Dear Diary

Wouldn't you know it? Just as soon as Mommy rents out my room in the basement to some "former Redskin quarterback" by the name of Colt, he up and moves out to Oakland, leaving the poor woman with a trashed up room and no rent money to show for it. I tell you, some people have no character at all.

Well, it was back to business this morning after having yesterday off -- although I must admit that I hung around the hotel studying my playbook and watching a little football -- the Dallas-Cincinnati pre-season opener. What a yawner that was -- football for insomniacs! Hell, their so called starters didn't play much at all, and most of the back ups will be gone by the time we open the regular season next month against Dallas. All in all, it was a waste of time -- but then again, what could you expect from Dallas and Cincinnati? And everybody thinks they're the teams to beat this season? Yeah, right.

Was interesting to have AH92 out on the practice field this morning, although it's still odd to see him playing with the second unit. I wonder if that means he'll get a "significant playing time" when we open our pre-season Friday at home against Buffalo -- or none at all. Funny thing is, Coach Haslett seems to think he's a bit of a mathematician -- and regularly spouts off stuff like, "Your odds of making the team are inversely proportional to the amount of time you spend on the field this pre-season -- that is, unless we're actually still looking at someone to play your position -- and then, anything goes."

I'm not sure what he means, but I think he's saying the coaches would be content to play the scrubs and no-hopers for big parts of all four pre-season games, and try to keep the "starters" fresh and safe from harm, at least until the regular season begins. Heck, we didn't even do a team scrimmage for Fan Appreciation Day, like most other teams would do.

Now, I'm not sure how that fits with Coach Shanahan's philosophy about bringing competition to every position, but I guess it means you don't want to play too much in the pre-season; that is, unless you're still fighting for a job -- and then you might want to play your butt off, or something like that, I guess.

As for yours truly, I'll just take it as it comes. I'll be ready to play when they want, and I'll be ready to sit out when they want me too. As for the other players around here, I don't know what to say. For example, we have at least three established starters at running back -- so how do you figure out who plays and when? And then there's that sorry bunch of wide receivers -- none of whom seem to be much good.

Not that it makes any difference though. Coach has already said he don't care if we win or lose this week. He just wants us to look pretty, sell some club level seats and McNabb jerseys, and try not get hurt.

Fair enough, I guess, even if it is a bit boring.

Until next time --
Your BFF!

Winner winner, chicken dinner.

Most notable in this scenario is DT11.

Barnes better at Free safety? Just an idea... kid brings the lumber and would have deep help and TE coverage responsibilities vice running w/ a 1 or 2 WR.

Parker won't make the final 75, let alone the 53. CP, LJ, RT, BMS, and the new kid will make up the backfielders. This will leave more room at WR so they can carry 6 including 11 and 12.

MK12 needs to get back on the field next week, and show some real strides in pre games 2 and 3. Otherwise, hasta. I think he gets it done. Lets face it, Joey fing Galloway is not the answer. And if he is, just put Him, Tana, Cooley and Freddie Delight on the field and let Lil Shanny blow D'coords minds. Galloway? Just run a deep route, and run it real fast.

I love Shanny for that Pred.

He sure has.

We have video of a late season catch-n-run against the chargers where a second-team, one-legged cornerback ran him down just before Kelly could cross the goal line.

The depth chart is a little bogus.

However, it would be great to see JG still burning secondaries.

Maybe he has something left in the tank that only the coaches know about.

Not happy to see DT11 as a 3rd teamer at WR. Nor am I happy to see him at #1 on KR.

DT11 needs to become a stud WR, let someone else do the returning.

Would like to see those ratings reverse. #1 at WR, #3 on KR. That's much better

I hope that this will teach dan snyder that no matter how big, fast, what school, or whatever hype is behind a player that YOU DON'T DRAFT ROOKIES WITH BAD KNEES. It's just not worth it. I could see a one time injury, but dude has had bad knees the whole time at Oklahoma....it made no sense.

I also blame the scouting dept on this as well...horrible...i'm so glad that it's finally gotten revamped..

I'm from the school of thought that having strong lines make everyone else's job easier. Olines that can atleast give enough time to throw 20 yards down field are great because it keeps the defense honest. Also if they can give three yrds a pop.....like I don't understand why dlineman are always so much stronger than olinemen.

Dlinemen that can hold up at the point of contact makes the LB's job easier....at that point it's simple ISO drills by filling in holes.....

all the skilled positions can be filled in as time goes, but a dominate line is what's up.


Lastly, why in the hell don't we have an almost separate staff whose, sole job is to develop the bench players. From strength and conditioning, to learning the play book, to all the other areas of football. It's not like they are doing anything else during the games.....

That's why NE is so good, they are DEDICATED to developing talent...not just importing it..

Re: Receiving Options

It's been forseeable for some time that Cooley/Davis are going to be front-n-center in our passing game. So all the folks who think they're clever making that call right now haven't been up on the blog since about the middle of last season when some yahoos were clamoring to trade Chris Cooley and the rational ones among us were talking about the benefits of having 2 stud TEs.

Without Haynesworth, there would be no national coverage of the Redskins by the national media. This team is about as devoid of talent as a team can be and not be considered a Div. III football program. Don't get me wrong. The Redskins spend money. They just don't spend it wisely. As an agent, I appreciate that, but trust me, this team wouldn't draw flies from the national media without Mr. Haynesworth. So lets not get too full of ourselves.

Before your Shanahan "hero worshipping" gets out of hand, let's clear the air with regard to Shanahan and Mr. Haynesworth. Shanahan is slurping Haynesworth (publicly, no less) not the other way around. Haynesworth has not said one good thing about Shanahan. My client is still fully in charge and that won't change anytime soon.

As I have advised you before, remove the burgundy and gold colored glasses and see Shanahan for what he is. A has-been coach who gets no respect from the players and a coach who will be looking for employment in 2012. He's been handed a rag-tag bunch and is DOOMED to finish no better than 12-20 over the next two years.

Cheers.

This is somewhat akin to the Irvin/Monk debate...one guy has bravado and numbers and the other put up numbers and kept his mouth shut while doing it. The guy who doesn't make the media's job easier is the guy who gets left out in the cold.

That's why the HoF MUST move away from letting sportswriters select players for the Hall of Fame. Get a more objective committee of former players/coaches already in the HoF whose sole purpose is to convene once a year and vote for the next batch of guys to get enshrined.

Ray Lewis has a ring won as the leader of one of the best NFL defenses in the past 20 years.

Say what you want, but the 2001 ravens D was murda.

(No pun intended, Ray, sorry.)

And until London Fletcher does the same, he'll always be second to Ray Ray.

Rings won are what separates potential HOF'ers from deserving guys who won't get in, unless the the guys with no rings have dominate numbers.

And London's numbers don't shadow Lewis's.

With Kyle Shanahan now in charge of the Redskins’ offense, you won’t see quarterback Donovan McNabb calling many audibles this season.

“I’ve never really believed in [audibles] too much,” Shanahan said. “I want a tempo. I don’t like O-linemen sitting and waiting at the line, looking. I want to get off, come up and have a tempo, have guys get off the ball and play fast. I don’t mind if we’ve got a bad play. Throw it in the flat and we’ll get a 3-yard gain. If he makes [the defender] miss, we’ve got a big play.”

Shanahan estimates that the frequency of the Redskins’ audibles will be in the bottom half of the league. McNabb has the freedom to check out of certain running plays and certain third-down situations when the pass protection call doesn’t match up favorably with what the defense is showing.

Even then, however, Shanahan believes they often aren’t the best option.

“We usually have an answer built in to most of our plays,” he said. “Normally I just want him to get rid of it, throw it hot.”

A 2nd rnd n a 3rd rnd pick next yr for an NFL proven WR....

Here's some of our picks....

2nd malcolm kelly, nothing but ????s

2 devin thomas, hopin he develops, fingers crossed

2 freddy d, a solid starter n hopefully future star

3rd chad rinehart, he's a better gaurd without a beer n hot wings in hand

My point is that drafting a wr can take time for the to develope and that may not happen.....

Trade the picks n get our guy for the next 5 or 6 yrs........

Part of the reason we drafted Malcolm Kelly is because Jason Campbell endorsed him following their private workout.

Believe it or not Cerrato wanted Campbell to succeed and Campbell did have a say in at least one of our three 2nd-round pass catchers.

Watch Oakland pick up Kelly should we cut him.

Malcom will join Adam Archuletta, Brandon Lloyd and Jason Taylor in the pantheon of Vinnie Cerrato busts.

Rings won are what separates potential HOF'ers from deserving guys who won't get in, unless the the guys with no rings have dominate numbers.

And London's numbers don't shadow Lewis's.

Agree with what you're saying (although I don't agree with the sentiment), but you do realize London DOES have a ring, right? He was playing for the Rams when they won the SB after the '99 season...

This is somewhat akin to the Irvin/Monk debate...one guy has bravado and numbers and the other put up numbers and kept his mouth shut while doing it. The guy who doesn't make the media's job easier is the guy who gets left out in the cold.

That's why the HoF MUST move away from letting sportswriters select players for the Hall of Fame. Get a more objective committee of former players/coaches already in the HoF whose sole purpose is to convene once a year and vote for the next batch of guys to get enshrined. Until they do that, it'll be the same political BS year in and year out.

Ray Lewis not considered better because he has bravado. He is considered better because he is better. There has not been a MLB like him in a long time. ILB is not a position you can measure in stats. It is not the same as wr or rb. Ray Lewis was insanely good his first 10 years in the league. He has declined and is still considered top 5. Patrick Willis who is considered the best is a quiet guy. I don't think I can ever recall hearing him say anything or displaying any bravado. Most conversations of top LBs of all time usually starts with LT and includes Singletary, Lewis, Butkus and Huff. It is more about the intimidation factor. Lewis hit Eddie George so hard in a playoff game that he quit. In Mendenhalls first game two years ago Lewis hit him so hard he separated his shoulder knocking him out for the season hurting my fantasy football team. Fletcher while good is not all that intimidating. Another example of quiet guy who has gotten tons of accolades is Derrick Brooks.

A hamstring injury, sometimes it's a couple of days, other times it's a couple of weeks," Shanahan said. "Obviously, his has been a little more serious than we first thought.

The Bizzaro ride at Six Flaggs Great Adventure is totally cool. It has a 120 ft vertical inversion loop. You lose your lunch at the top of the loop and then when you get back down to the bottom and open your mouth, bingo!, your lunch is back home again! Simply amazing.

Today is a special day, it's a sequence day, 8/9/10. Next year there will be a once every hundred years occurrence - a six number identity, 11/11/11. An eight number identity occurred on 11/11/1111. We will have to wait until 11/11/11111 for the first and only 9 number indentity. Every 10,000 yrs the count goes up by one.

srobert, nobody's taking anything away from Ray Lewis. But if some up here can place caveats on Jerry Rice--think about that a minute...Jerry f-ing Rice--surely the same can be done for Ray Lewis. Dude almost always had mammoth D-lineman or two in front of him. At his best, Ray had Sam Adams and Tony Siragusa in front of him. Now he's got Ngata and Pryce.

Again...Lewis has earned everything he's gotten. But I think some people deify him a bit because he's so intense (to the point of insane) and he's a tremendous leader.

Compare the stats for yourself. I'm fully aware that it's not all about stats, but both guys are leaders, both guys have tremendous work ethic. The only thing that separates the two is media attention and perception.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm on pins and needles. I don't want to wait that long. Isn't there something the government could do about the calendar so that this will come around a lot sooner? What if we count in seconds, instead of years?

he might miss a whole lot more than just Friday's game - I hear he wants to go hang out at Michael Westbrook's house - anybody remember him????? - Get a clue Kelly, this ain't the free ride you've had the past two years - what a waste of a 2nd round pick.
