Morning Practice (Updated)

The morning practice is underway and, wouldn't you know it, Twitter is broken. So, while the people at Twitter, Inc. fix it, I'll take email updates from the guys and post 'em right here. Rick Maese, for instance, is trying desperately to convey the info that, although Stephon Heyer is in pads, Jeremy Bridges and Chad Rinehart occupy the right side of the offensive line.

Stay tuned for updates from Jason Reid (@JReidPost), Rick Maese (@RickMaese), Barry Svrluga (@barrysvrluga) and Paul Tenorio (@paultenorio) via Twitter (when the Twits get it fixed) and the blog. I'll be tweeting and retweeting the guys and from other sites (@RedskinsInsider).

We'll still be blogging, of course.

Cindy

Can we get a report on TE Robert Agnone. I keep reading that he is getting more and more time with the second team. Is Yoder being pushed there?

Go back to the main page for RI and the tweets show up. (Not on the sub page though) But it seams all Paul Tenorio is twittering is about his personal life.

From Redskins.com:

The offensive line’s issues early in camp have been well-documented, of course. While there is competition at right tackle, the starting positions appear to be mostly settled. One young lineman who has really fought hard and showed he belongs is center Will Montgomery. He also has experience at guard, so that versatility is an advantage when it comes to roster cuts.

The player who appears to have made the biggest improvement is Justin Tryon, who is getting increased reps due to Carlos Rogers being sidelined with a calf injury. Tryon has been right on in coverage, staying close to receivers. He is showing he could be a solid cover cornerback.

Kenbeatrizz,
First off the Cowboys were in a bubble not a dome; one is a cloth structure held up by air or in that case steel frame, the other is a all sold structure like what most teams have for indoor practice facilities.

I did a count earlier this week 8 teams use bubbles 8 don't practice inside and the rest have a solid structure option.

2nd off, do some research they still practice indoors (they do it in the Alamo dome.)

don't come on this blog with your ill informed sass.

Posted by: dcsween | August 6, 2009 9:36 AM | Report abuse

Sween,
I have personally dreamt for a while that the team should build a 5000-10000 seat indoor practice facility adjacent to Skins Park, think of it as a practice field for some days and other days you use it for youth sporting events. Really that they should sell redskins park in assburn and re-build the whole thing by FedEx Field or wherever they eventually put the new Stadium.

The builders of the Cowboy's dome are Six Flags Enterprises, a subsidiary of Johnny Rocket's. Show your displeasure by boycotting Johnny Rocket's.

Teams who practice/play in domes are panzies. You have to play outside almost 100% of the time, so why practice in a dome? Horrible idea. Let's all get turf toe and break our ankles on fake grass because we're scared of rain.

The NFL is for men, not weather-scared little girls.

Forgive my ignorance but how does rain affect Twitter? Is it an issue with not wanting to get your blackberries wet or are Twitter's servers outside in a garden environment?

Maybe Alex can lobby for a Twitter practice dome.

Let's hope not. Cork's credibility is shot if Tryon makes it in the NFL. What difference would it make, though -- just one more bullet in a corpse.

Posted by: talent_evaluator | August 6, 2009 10:00 AM | Report abuse

Yes except the only teams that don't practice in domes are some of the worst and mediocre teams in the NFL right now.

Washington, Tampa, Baltimore, Cincinnati Carolina, San Fran, Cleveland Jaxsonville Oakland and San Deago.

Some powerhouses right there. Asside from the 8-8 chargers and the crab cakes who there are you talking about being tough?

Yes play outside, the elements are what makes home-field advantage, but why practice in the mud where you can slip and bust your leg up. Don't let opinions get in the way of facts.

Occurs to me that this time last year, the NFC East was looking like a division full of really good offenses. Romo and Terrell Owens in Dallas, Eli and Plaxico in NY, the usual suspects in Philly. The only question mark: Washington. And yet the Skins got off to the fast start.

Now it looks like the others have come back a little to Washington's level, on offense. And the Skins have upgraded their defense.

Looks like the running game is coming along.


On the Run

The Redskins ran a series of run plays against the defense.

Here's are some of the highlights (with the first team, second team and third team all alternating in and out):

* Chris Samuels pulls insider and blocks Albert Haynesworth, allowing Clinton Portis to break free on a run to the left.
* On the left again, Todd Yoder took on Andre Carter and Samuels pushed Haynesworth on a run to the right. Ladell Betts finds a crease to the right and breaks through. Yoder and Carter slap hands, lauding each other for the effort.
* Reed Doughty did a run blitz, breaking into the backfield and getting in position to tackle Betts at the line of scrimmage.
* Edwin Williams falls down as he tries to block Kedric Golston. That slows down Rock Cartwright on a run up the middle.
* Cody Glenn avoids a blocker and gets in position to take down Cartwright on a run to the right.
* Great block by Mike Sellers on Chris Wilson, allowing Cartwright to race around left end for a big gain.

They have this at the PG Cty Sports & Learning Center that PG extracted from JKC in the stadium deal. It houses a huge indoor track and a huge gymnastics facility (plus a couple of pools and a workout room). No football fields though. Ashburn is even farther away from Washington than Landover is. Screw that. Put a new stadium in the city ... or, if its outside DC, then just annex a corridor of land (like Cook County did for O'Hare) so they can legitimately be called the WASHINGTON team.
