Kelly Practices A Little; Fabini Does Not

Rookie WR Malcolm Kelly took limited work during practice, but came through well. Kelly participated in individual drills and ran some routes, though not quite at full speed.

He said the swelling and inflammation in his hamstring is dissipating, and the injury is not really painful at this point, but "it's more like it's weak," Kelly said, adding "he felt pretty good" during the afternoon practice.

Coach Jim Zorn said it is conceivable Kelly could take part in Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts for a few plays, but a decision will not be made until later in the week. Zorn said Kelly will likely take part in team drills today - but mostly on running plays - getting used to running at reduced speed before really sprinting. No one wants a setback at this point.

"We still don't want him to push it," Zorn said.

Offensive lineman Jason Fabini did not take part in the afternoon practice after getting sick this morning. He has re-hydrated and will be ready for practice Wednesday morning, Zorn said.

Zorn said he would meet with the team tonight to begin planning for Sunday. Players will get stripped-down playbooks; the team is primarily interested in continuing to install its own plays at this point and is not really scheming for the Colts.

two days ago, someone writes that Zorn says he is listening to his old friend Steve Largent. That when the hammy starts feeling good, rest it another week and let it get all the way better.

Then I read this. Clearly Kelly is not all the way better, let alone better for a week. And Zorn is considering Kelly for the game? Something's not adding up

============================

Word is, is that RATM is playing in Denver during the Democratic Convention in August. Hopefully it'll be a warm-up for a full U.S. tour.

Actually saw Tom Morello's solo project out here in Hollywood not too long ago. Awesome show and he had a kick-ass lineup onstage with him which included: Slash, Jerry Cantrell, Perry Farrell, Dave Novarro, Cypress Hill, Steve Vai, Flea, Travis Barker, Pete Yorn, Stewart Copeland, among others. Brad Wilk tried to show up and get in but the idiot bouncers outside wouldn't let him in because they didn't know who he was. What a bunch of idiots.

Highlight was definitely seeing Morello, Flea, Travis Barker, Slash, and Cypress Hill all on stage doing "How I Could Just Kill A Man." Kick-Ass.

FROM THE PREVIOUS POST:

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/sports/2008078687_zorn29.html

love the last quote:
Holmgren was in Hawaii vacationing with his wife when he got a message from Snyder marked urgent.

"I'm on vacation so I didn't phone him back," Holmgren said.

The headline that greeted him the next morning was that Zorn was Washington's new coach. So Holmgren called up his old assistant and ended up on the phone with Snyder.

"Did I do the right thing?" Snyder asked Holmgren.

"Well, it's a little late," Holmgren jokingly said. "You absolutely did the right thing. Now help him as an owner. Help him. Do everything you can to help him because you've got a good man."

A man who had been preparing for this chance for years in Seattle only to have it arise so unexpectedly in Washington.
--------
The funny part of the story to me was even though the message was urgent from Snyder, Holgren ignored it!

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

Today's thoughts

1. Obama vs McCain (or any Dem vs Rep) who cares they are just different sides of the same coin, all are controlled by big business

2. HBO Generaion Kill - great show not quite Band of Brothers, but pretty good just ths same

3. Hopefully we are getting our injuries out of the way early and we can have a rather injury free season. Teams with fewer injuries make the playoffs these days. Not a lot of talent difference between a 7-9 team and a 9-7 team, so injuries play a big factor these days.

4. Al, Zeke - did not know Chris Hanburger was in 9 Pro Bowls. 9/14 sounds like a HOF rep

This has been a very strange offseason for the Skins. The Spaghetti Gang has basically reversed its prior MO and done much better on most fronts. its possible they did learn something from St Joe.

The coaching search was a disaster, but the hire might be a good one. If Zorn works out, Danny will go from one of the worst owners to one of the best. If not, well, he is what he is.

The WCO is a big change and its a good design, but defenses understand it now, too. Lots of challenges ahead. Its a genuine plan which guys can focus in on.

The Skins had character guys on the roster, highly influenced by Gibbs. It has paid off this offseason, as there were no major issues with anyone on the roster ... and everyone seems to have come back ready to play. More returning starters than any team in the NFL. Returning almost the entire defensive coaching staff was a huge accomplishment.

The Skins had blown the salary cap mgmt in previous years and they got it back under reasonable control. Zero major $$ FA and only 1 major trade ... even then, in an area where the need was great.

I'll say that draft was mixed. I liked the idea of drafting two big WRs. If only one works, good job. I'd have preferred more O-line and LB, but people rarely know about a draft until 2 years down the road.

God bless Joe Gibbs, but has anyone considered that Gibbs was part of the problem.

1) Overcommitted to Brunell
2) He was team President therefore he had to sign off on Lloyd, Duckett, etc.
3) The "Gee golly let's not make em' mad" mentality takes away from the aggressiveness of football.

Having said all that...

1) Having to navigate through the Sean Taylor thing with a playoff run was great!

Cork, never lived in Boston but spent a bunch of time there. At least Durgin Park kept their slogan.

St. Joe was a better leader than coach. He clearly had lost something in evaluating talent. FA was hit and miss. But he did do a good job in keeping character guys around and it showed last year. I think he finally saw the light as a coach near the end of last season. Gibbs made a ton of decisions, some of them pretty bad.

Perhaps the one thing that will carry over most from Gibbs are the number of close games we played. Gibbs 'run the clock' approach led to lower scoring games, which meant it was hard for either team to get a big lead. A bunch of 7 minute drives that go 40 yards and get a FG -- no blowouts either way.

All those close games create a tighter bond between guys. Plus, the more tight games teams are in, the better they'll play in those situations.

What Gibbs left behind was pretty darn good. The Skins are significantly better off than when he arrived. If Jim Zorn is what the Spaghetti Gang hopes he is, then it will be a very bright future.

I do think the coaching search was a disaster, not just a PR issue. The hire is another issue. Zorn is a big question mark, but a lot of great coaching hires seemed that way on Day 1.

As for my maroon comment, you can stop being ignorant and check out Zorn's first presser. Maroon, yellow and black -- if I recall it correctly. As always, ignorance is choice :)

Al,

I think Gibbs the president was better than Gibbs the coach in 2.0. The talent left on this team is why Zorn can be successful. Moss, Portis, Campbell are Gibbs' guys. Moss and Portis already have Redskin records. Defensively if #21 (RIP) doesn't get shot to death - it would have loaded at safety with other young talent on d(Monty, Golston, Mac, Rogers, Doughty).

I think Gibbs stepped down because he knew his approach wasn't aggressive enough in the coaching area. He always talked about being aggressive in free agency and was - hit or miss. [

[Hit (London Fletcher). Miss (Duckett) - this was of course a learning experience for the organization that perhaps preparing for the worst case scenario (no CP) is not worth giving up picks and instead the new model of contingencies (I.E. Kendall and J. Taylor).]

Coaching he was fantastic Monday to Saturday as the team was prepared and in every single game save two - NE 2007, NYG 2005 - years the team rebounded and made the playoffs. Sunday Gibbs was not horrible but definitely to blame for as many losses as wins.

Hard to forget him calling the two successive time outs that moved the kicker 15 yards closer for the field goal. That bordered on senility.

And he made the team too old, trading too many picks for vets who didn't work out. There should be a lot more young talent on this team.

Joe 1.0 had Beatherd.
Joe 2.0 had Cerrato

Joe 1.0 had a massive Oline
Joe 2.0 had a very small Oline

Joe 1.0 could outspend an unlimited budget
Joe 2.0 suffered from a salary cap that hurt depth

You could go on, but that was it, in a nutshell. He and Ceratto brought in the personnel, whereas before, Bobby B did it.

Joe tried to win with smashmouth running game. It didnt' work with a small line.

Posted by: Corkczar | July 29, 2008 8:49 PM | Report abuse

I've always found it difficult to blame St. Joe for the offensive struggle of last year. As far as I could see (and I am the poster child for untrained eye), there were a ton (or, for redcoat, a tonne) of plays where JC looked deep initially, then checked down to the intermediate/short route. Now, that could be JC feeling the heat (and with the line we had, hard to argue); it could have been that the WRs were too dinged up to get separation (ibid); it could've been the defense taking away anything long but leaving a seam for Cooley and the gang; or, it could've been that JC was indecisive. I'm sure it was a mixture -- but it seems to me that Gibbs (or was it Saunders?) gave JC plenty of chances to succeed.

The impact of Gibbs 2.0 is not only on the field. He had a big impact on how things were run in this organization. There was a big switch in the role that Snyder played. It wasn't Gibbs bringing in all the old has beens, don't forget the last few Norvel years that were plagued with huge offseason aquisitions of old guys that depleted future draft picks. Gibbs changed that mentality in the organization. Even if he did get caught up some with a couple of off seasons, the moves he made were, for the most part, positive. Snyder and Cerrato learned a lot from Joe, and that is evident with how they have run this team post Gibbs 2.0. No, he didn't get the skins back to the super bowl, but 2-4 in the playoffs does not ruin a legacy, and his impact will hopefully be felt for years to come. Snyder is still a work in progress as he is still a young owner. But you can't fault his desire, or his willingness to learn, and that was exactly the reason for bringing in Gibbs, to mentor Snyder on how to run a football team.

Clock management, the two-minute drill, and the challenge flag were certainly weaknesses in Gibbs 2.0. Very ... strange is the word -- for someone like Gibbs. Too many cooks in the kitchen seemed like part of it, but not completely. I'd love to know what someone like Bugel thinks was the issue.
As for drafting vs. FA acquisition, you might disagree with their priorities, but I think I can describe them thusly: Team Spurrier was a mess, and St. Joe came to the rescue. Well, St. Joe wasn't planning to coach for ten years, so FA was the path they had to go down -- replace the Trung Canidates of the world with a Clinton Portis, for example. And once you start giving up draft picks, it's pretty easy to give them up in bulk.
Duckett is the weird case that either defies or proves the rule, depending on your outlook. It was an egregious waste of picks, but coming off a playoff season with a real solid defense, Portis gets hurt and there's a knee-jerk "I need a power running back to get to the Super Bowl" reaction.
If all the other wheels hadn't fallen off the tricycle, that could've been the tactical move of the year, something that would have added enormously to the Gibbs legacy.

Watching Gibbs these past 4 years have been odd to say the least. From the "Brunell, take me to the airport, I forgot to eat a candy bar" to the Weberonderous double kicker icing. Wow... Just Wow. I don't know Bugel's financial situation, but I don't think he needs the money. I'm thinking he thinks this team has a shot, and that maybe it took Gibbs leaving. The player selection mistakes piled up quickly, and you could argue that he never recovered from his first, Brunell. But overall, my point was that I think Gibbs 2.0 was a success. Behind the scenes needed more reworking than the front and I'm HOPING that happened.

I like Zorn so far. A tough teacher with a straight forward scheme that allows players to use their skills.

Redskins Training Camp: Day 10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John Keim
WarpathInsiders.com Jul 29, 2008

How did Carlos Rogers really look and what is his prognosis? Does Malcolm Kelly have a chance to play this Sunday? Did Campbell continue to look good? All this and more right here...

...Carlos Rogers practiced full today, giving the Redskins hope that he could indeed return earlier than they anticipated. Washington coach Jim Zorn had maintained for a while that he didn't think Rogers would come back before the end of September.

Rogers has insisted he would return for the season opener. Still too early to tell who will be right, but seeing Rogers in action today had to make them cautiously optimistic. What they don't want is for him to play a game then miss a game, so they will take it slow.

But he did everything they wanted him to do today, going hard in both practices. One key will be how his knee responds tomorrow.

...Malcolm Kelly participated in limited fashion during the afternoon session. He still has a chance of playing Sunday.

...Linebacker H.B. Blades underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and will miss four weeks. The coaches love Blades because he's always around the ball. Personally, Blades is a good story and a good player. But at his size it will be hard to see him becoming a full-time guy. He's smaller and not as quick as London Fletcher.

...Quarterback Jason Campbell had another strong day, maybe his best yet. Very accurate on some downfield throws and his decision making has pleased the coaches. We'll see what happens in game situations, but he's looke d good this week.

...Marcus Washington is healthy and it's noticeable. He has a bounce in his step that wasn't always seen last year when he battled through injuries. A healthy Washington gives the Redskins an infectious personality and provides them a ton of energy.

...It's quiet without the fans at practice.

...Chris Cooley is genuinely pleased to do community work. He hosted 25 kids from Children's Hospital today, hanging out with them for a while after practice. He interacted with them with a big smile on his face. Also handed out bags with $300 worth of goodies in them, including a PSP. Yes, he can afford this. But he sincerely wants to as well; said he was excited about this last night. He's a good celebrity.

...The Redskins drew 60,000 fans to their open workouts.

...Jason Fabini missed practice thanks to a major vomiting spell in the morning, which coach Jim Zorn gave us a detailed description of in his press conference. Could have done without that.

...Some remnants of Chris Samuels' cake was on the podium today.

...One of the things that separates Zorn from previous coaches is that he has a passion for football that seems to have never dimmed. Some coaches become jaded or forget why they love the game; don't think Zorn ever has to be reminded of why he loves what he does.

...DT Anthony Montgomery will have his cast cut off Friday and sa id he might be able to play in the second preseason game.

SKIP BAYLESS on espn 1st and 10. stated, "Jason Taylor adds 2 wins to the redskins total this year. They will go 8-8. They would have been 6-10 without him."

Go F yourself. Non watching football mother fer.

kost, I'm sure there will be plenty of comments up here to help you to follow the scintillating action from Canton.

Remember when there used to be the sound of crickets chirping up here, nights like this?

Some nights it was deafening.

Now, not even that...

It's not Rogers' injury I'm worried about. It's his salad tongs for hands that worry me...

Look at his comedic gem from the NFC East blog on ESPN.com...

Matt Mosley: Andy, premature statements are my specialty. I've already gone back and forth on the division rankings several times. I hate to pick against the Giants because I think they have the type of leadership that can withstand a Super Bowl hangover. That said, I'd have to go Cowboys (12-4), Giants (11-5), Eagles (10-6), Redskins (9-7). All four teams will go to the playoffs. The Cowboys will win a playoff game and lose in the next round. Taylor will make a significant impact (12 sacks), but it might not be enough. Manning will be solid and I think McNabb makes it through the season healthy.

Is this guy new? It's impossible to have all 4 teams from a division make the playoffs because division winners take up the top 4 spots and there are only 2 wild-cards. How the hell does this clown cover the NFL for a living and not know that? Typical ESPN crap...

By the way, the whole "NFC East lining up only one game apart from each other" thing is stupid. It's more likely the whole division goes 8-8 than what that moron Mosley laid out.

The song that played over those highlights was horrible.

When exactly did hip-hop turn into absolute crap?

brownie, I think Mosley's assuming that the NFC East will be so powerful, so dominant, that the league will strip one of the other NFC division winners of its automatic playoff berth.

I second the motion and hereby nominate the NFC West for this very special honor.

Funny, Nate. Maybe Danny will help Carl Peterson of the Chiefs in lifting the banner for adding teams to the playoff field so that 10-6 and 9-7 teams will never again miss the playoffs.

And maybe Emmitt Smith will learn to conjugate a verb...
