Phillip Daniels will attend camp, sit out practices

Defensive end Phillip Daniels will be at Redskins Park for the team's second minicamp, but he won't be participating in drills or the practice sessions. Daniels underwent arthoscopic knee surgery last week and is in the process of recovering.

"I'm feeling good," Daniels said. "It's just something I had to do, had to clean it out. But nothing major. I'm already doing conditioning, I'm moving around. I'm not on crutches or anything."

Daniels had major knee surgery in July 2008 after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during training camp. He said he hopes to be able to participate fully in some of the team's OTAs, the first of which is scheduled for May 17.

He says he'll still be active at the team's minicamp, which begins Friday and runs through Sunday. He'll be in the meeting rooms and out on the field.

"I'll try to be a coach on the sidelines, helping the young guys get going, letting the older guys know what I see from where I am," Daniels said. "I'll be with my group, watching drills and just wishing that I was out there."

Posted by: alex35332 | May 6, 2010 4:19 PM | Report abuse

You better learn yourself. You're comparing a 3-4 WLB with a 4-3 SLB, two entirely different positions. It's almost as bad as comparing Richard Seymour to Dwight Freeney, then declaring Seymour a colossal failure because has not, could not, and never will approach Freeney's numbers in rushing the passer, almost entirely due to their differing responsibilities.

Anybody declaring Arrington a bust for any reason OTHER than his luck with injuries has little ground to stand on when it comes to football acumen. As a player, no, he wasn't as good as Demarcus Ware -- but he was damn close in his prime.

Seeing as how I posed the question and then immediately answered it in my own post, I figured that you would recognize it as a rhetorical question.

But I forgot that you took the same English classes as Clinton Portis, so you probably don't know what that means.

No one here is arguing any "would, should, could". Everything I said was based on what he actually did on the field.

You are calling LaVar a "bust" despite 3 ProBowl appearances, so I already have an idea of the kind of person I'm dealing with here - a poster somewhere in the "Rotfrau" to "pabrian" range.

But I'll leave you with one last task:

How about this - take LaVar's stats from 2000-2003. That's his rookie season through his 4th year in the league.

Compile those numbers (if you know how to do that) and then compare it to ANY other OLB in the NFL over the last decade - their first 4 years in the league.

See what you get...make sense? Playa?

* Bowie wasn't guaranteed 29 million dollars.


The fact that Russell was given 29 mil before he took a single snap in the league, was taking number one, and refuses to work on his game makes him the worst draft pick ever in the history of the world.

"but lets not deny the fact that 3 solid seasons is not any type of ground to stand on.

Posted by: casavaLeafs"

As a precursor, Arrington's 3 seasons were far from solid. They were at an all-pro level. He was the player offenses feared, coordinator's schemed against, and WRs avoided when going over the middle. He fundamentally changed the way teams had to attack. The only two other Redskins in the last 20 years to be able to claim that were Champ Bailey and Sean Taylor (you can argue Haynesworth as well). And when the choice came to decide between who to make the cornerstone of the defense, Arrington was selected over Bailey (and few made a peep at the time regarding that decision, that's how good he was).

And speaking of Sean Taylor, I'm curious to see how much higher regard you hold him in over Arrington (and I'm not trying to be insensitive about the subject). Both had phenomenal short stints with the Redskins, and both had their careers cut short (obviously under different circumstances and consequences). What do you say about his success as a draft pick?

Posted by: psps23 | May 6, 2010 4:42 PM | Report abuse

Lavar Arrington didn't live up to his potential due to injuries and at times his own stubbornness.

But he's no where near a bust. You can't be effective and a bust at the same time, and Lavar was effective when healthy.

Posted by: RedDMV

If by "at times his own stubbornness" you mean all those times he WASN 'T injured, fine. LaVarr always had his own agenda. He felt he was too taletned to be coached--he got away with that in college, but in the pros, not so much.

So, he was a bust also because he was ALL WORLD coming out of college and because he was picked #2 overall.

And his stats are deceiving. Sure, he raced across the field and make a tackle the guy with that responsibility could have made, and thus LeVarr padded his stats.

But often he didn't know where he was supposed to be, and that screw up an offense. So he cost the team a lot of yards, discouraged other, team players, and POed the coaches.

Not as talented as Haynesworth, but every bit the pain in the Arse.

agreed, find the AH situation far more interesting because he's on the roster, he's an impact player, and there is almost certainly stuff going on behind the scenes.

all indications are that Shanahan would like to get rid of him for sufficient value in return. similar reports from the media (whether national or local) have been very consistent in this respect for the past several months. the lack of solid information speaks more to the back-room nature of the process than JReid's reporting.

curious to know if the main beef is NT vs. DE, or if he simply doesn't want anything to do with a 3-4 scheme even at DE. maybe he just doesn't like offseason workouts? but it seems there isn't much else to say until he suits up or something else happens.

Psps, I agree with your overall take on LaVar.

But when you compare Ware's first 4 seasons in the NFL to LaVar's first 4 here's how it breaks down:

LaVar
339 tackles, 21.5 sacks, 32 passes defended, 3 ints, 10 forced fumbles

DeMarcus
297 tackles, 53.5 sacks, 12 passes defended, 1 int, 18 forced fumbles


DeMarcus is clearly superior as a pass-rusher. But when you account for things like tackles and getting into coverage, LaVar is superior.

These differences also have to do with the way they're being used in in the schemes.


But I say it's a wash. DeMarcus is better at getting to the QB, but LaVar is a better all-around linebacker.

right, no one is saying he isn't good... but neither the coaching staff nor AH seem to be happy about this situation. again, all of the unfounded rumors are consistent on this. maybe it's coming from the agent and/or front office. who knows?

this happens all the time in the NFL, and often the different sides work through it and perform to the benefit of both. not sure if that will happen here, or if AH will turn into a festering locker room cancer.

his public statements thus far have been minimally enthusiastic, and that might be ok. personally, my feeling is that Shanahan is boss cow now, and I'd like to see a team with players that pull together. the less drama, the better, unless you liked the CP stuff from a few threads back.

It's NT. He said as much himself. He doesn't view himself as a NT. He also said he'd play wherever the coaches told him to and wouldn't be a distraction about it.

Obviously it will all come down to performance on the field and how it plays out when mandatory camps begin.

For my part, I'd say his talent is wasted as a 3-4 NT too. I can understand why he wouldn't want to play there, and if he gets alot of snaps there, I don't think we'd be putting our playmakers in playmaking positions.

So which thread was the most/least annoying:

a. Phillip Daniels will attend camp, sit out practices

b. Haynesworth, Redskins could be stuck with each other

c. Redskins' changes are apparent, right from the top

d. Bruce Allen on McNabb extension, Haynesworth and uniforms

e.Portis airs a grievance with Arrington over Taylor

'b' was the most annoying as it beats an old drum, and I'm tired of the music about Hanyesworth/Redskins allegedly wanting to separated.

It's not gonna happen--move on, dammit!

'e' was the least interesting as a verbal between Portis and LaVar is like eavesdropping in on a tranny catfight.

Someone should've sent them both to English Language rehab as neither did his college proud with the Ebonically-challenged sparring match that elicited a yawn from this blogga.

This is Portis' last year (hopefully) and all he can say that I want to hear is 'good-bye' after a productive season.

"Raiders Release Former No. 1 Overall Pick Russell"


ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders released former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell on Thursday.


Somewhere, in a dark, damp room, Al Davis, dressed in a Darth Vader Raiders' outfit, is crying as $31 million dollars and the word 'bust' go walking out the door in Russell's wake.

It's NT. He said as much himself. He doesn't view himself as a NT. He also said he'd play wherever the coaches told him to and wouldn't be a distraction about it.

Obviously it will all come down to performance on the field and how it plays out when mandatory camps begin.

For my part, I'd say his talent is wasted as a 3-4 NT too. I can understand why he wouldn't want to play there, and if he gets alot of snaps there, I don't think we'd be putting our playmakers in playmaking positions.

Posted by: p1funk | May 6, 2010 5:51 PM

right, I know he doesn't see himself as a NT. but is that really what the coaches are asking? there's been speculation here about DE, or rotating DE/NT... he could excel in any of those scenarios. so what's the beef?

if he doesn't want to be a distraction, this doesn't seem like an auspicious start, despite the generic statements to the contrary.

And The Return on Investment was far lower than other "busts" like JaCarcass. And the Skins getting an "unachievable" 4th round pick (if JC makes the Pro-Bowl or the Raiders make the playoffs) is just the same as being cut.

When he spoke directly on the matter, he didn't say he didn't see himself in the 3-4. He simply said that he's not a nose tackle.

At NT, you take on a double-team virtually every snap as part of the position and - from what I understand - your role is mostly to be a fat-arsed anchor, hold the double team, and tackle the ball-carrier if they try to run up the gut.

The DEs in a 3-4 can be used in much more versatile ways to collapse the pocket and get in the backfield - the kind of stuff AH likes to do and is good at.

If you play him as a 3-4 DE you're gonna have to throw alot of double teams on him anyways, but if you have to double him AND the NT together, then you're putting the offense in a jam. Seems to make more sense to do that than put him at NT, where he's gonna face a double team anyways.

Haslett says he's gonna move him around alot, and that makes sense.

Him not being at voluntary minicamps is a distraction largely because rumor-mongering bloggers feel the need to bring it up every 24 hours and throw out trade scenarios.

"At NT, you take on a double-team virtually every snap as part of the position and - from what I understand - your role is mostly to be a fat-arsed anchor, hold the double team, and tackle the ball-carrier if they try to run up the gut."

That's the way the position was initially designed, and for my money, the prototype was Tony Siragusa the year the Ravens won it all. I don't think he backed up an inch all season.

But that's not the way you have to play it. It's perfectly OK to put a ferocious pass rusher like Albert at the nose from time to time in hopes of overwhelming the center and knocking him back into the QB. That's a great way to produce a turnover.

About Maake Kemoeatu -- the Carolina media say he was released as part of a salary-driven veteran purge that has resulted in only two remaining starters over 30 (one of whom will be Steve Smith).

According to eyewitnesses, Maake is actually bigger than Albert...

Warren Sapp made the move from dt to 3-4 de and had roughly 20 sacks albeit at the twilight of his career, with no help. With the 3-4 they could send pressure from any angle, which keeps the line from slanting protection to A.H side every time, this move may actually benefit A.H.

"MistaMoe,...You are never allowed to post again."

Well, it's true.

Biggie, Wu Tang, Tribe, Snoop, and Dre were on top from 1993-1999.

People still use lines from Notorious BIG songs in songs to this day.

Tupac's was a lightweight rapper whose 'legacy' (such as it is) was ruined by greedy people who pimped every track they could find as a new song.

I got a track where Pac is rappin' the alphabet.

If you take Dr Dre's production away from Pac, you have an empty philosopher no different than any other dude writing lyrics.

Tupac was dead for years, but new--often mediocre--music was released up until folks ran out of things to put on wax.

For me, "Hail Mary," "All Eyes On Me," "It's all about You" are standout tracks that still bang.

The rest of it is dated and tired.

all you need to do is dangle a carrot, and the cows will keep coming back...

(lowers head in shame)

mostly agreed with all of your points except the excerpt above.

I'll hold to the assertion that there is more to this than just bloggers and their slop feeding posters. JReid, ESPN, and others might look to us in order to gauge interest. but the media drumbeat on a potential trade has been very, very consistent. whether it happens will depend on various chess matches being played within the team (AH vs. MS) and between teams (what do you have, and what will you offer).

and young calf jcnjcnj... you need to look beyond RI. there is an echo chamber effect, but I don't think that is what is going on here.

pabrian's point about 3-4 teams being crossed off the list prior to the deal last year made a few neurons fire, despite having succumbed to bovine spongiform encephalopathy a few years back. not sure if it's true, but this is partly why I wonder if AH simply doesn't want anything to do with a 3-4 defense, no matter what.

which is also why I don't understand AH's beef. as pabrian and Samson noted, there are ways to make it work for everyone.

might not go down that way... but at least this is a moderately compelling storyline going into OTAs and camp. beats old-school feuds between CP and LA, or Tupac and Biggie.

by the way, met Tupac at LA private screening for Poetic Justice, since girlfriend at the time in LA was handling a misguided PR gig that ended with the gun in his hand being wiped from billboards. pretty down to earth, but I was just one of the anonymous cows milling around. funny that when I search on the film now, all I see are feel-good pictures showing Janet Jackson.

Joey Galloway and Wrecks Nessman should have been the first 2 players released if you're trying to bring a sense of winning and accountability to the team.

It's as sure as the Caps choking. Just saying. Bank on it. literally, if you will. Could help pay for your overpriced beer at the Redskins games.

Nice "payback" the other night..

I take it you're a Pens fan and as a Caps fan I felt your comments about the Caps choking were unfortunately soothsayer-esque. Here is to hoping the golden boy doesn’t end up with 2 cups and a gold medal before he turns 23.

I’d rather choke on a boob by the way..

Joey Galloway and Wrecks Nessman should have been the first 2 players released if you're trying to bring a sense of winning and accountability to the team.

2 bums, taking up space. Unnecessary. Give somebody with a future a chance. One guy has a mediocre past, but he's 38. If you consider he was one of the fastest guys in the NFL, he starts to look like he's lacking. The other guy was a flat-out bust.

Cut em. Before it's too late. McInjured will not last the season, even with a good line.

Outright Patronage by Bruce Allen.. Galloway should be retired by now..
The Pats couldnt release Galloway fast enough.. He stunk up the first 3 games of last season. Never learned the playbook and Brady just ignored him after he continued to drop passes or miss the pattern. He was gone before game 4, last year.
And for this type of player, the skins give up their most effective player from last year, Marko (chk the stats)?

Bruce Allen should of thought less about his ego and more about the talent on hand.

Saw that. I hope you can have another, but without the hand this year.

HTTR

This is it for me. Got long day tomorrow with you know who.

Peace upon the Nation.

"Yeah, the only thing homo about it is your interpretation; I wonder y that was ur first impression of the Allen's comment?This is the problem with "golden" pants. People like Samson will let it trigger their bi-curious side. If we change the uniforms, we should darken the burgundy, add a little black trim, and alter/change the helmet logo.

terrapin3,
we were way off topic then... even though i stand by the content of what i said, i kind of wanted to pull that one back. i can only imagine the despair of having one's family/house gone. it's actually the kind of thing that brings people to god...weird...but i digress.

"MistaMoe,...You are never allowed to post again."

I've been banned because I'm old enough to remember the truth about Tupac?: that he only got popular after he got shot?

Well, it's true.

Biggie, Wu Tang, Tribe, Snoop, and Dre were on top from 1993-1999.

People still use lines from Notorious BIG songs in songs to this day.

Tupac's was a lightweight rapper whose 'legacy' (such as it is) was ruined by greedy people who pimped every track they could find as a new song.

I got a track where Pac is rappin' the alphabet.

If you take Dr Dre's production away from Pac, you have an empty philosopher no different than any other dude writing lyrics.

Tupac was dead for years, but new--often mediocre--music was released up until folks ran out of things to put on wax.

For me, "Hail Mary," "All Eyes On Me," "It's all about You" are standout tracks that still bang.

The rest of it is dated and tired.

but are you old enough to remember that Tupac was a ballet school retard and Dre got his start in a Disco dance group? Some gangstas huh? Rocky called it with DMC, LL, Beastie's, but forgot Ice T and even earlier the Sugar Hill Gang and Grsndmaster Flash. Pioneers...

Russell, is just a lazy POS who switched it to cruise control once he got his guaranteed money. And there were several indicators that he'd half-ass it before he was drafted.

Yeah - kinda like another fat ass I know who got a ton of money from us.

Players who perform above average in contract years piss me off because when you are a professional and you are already compensated well for it - you should be producing every damn year if you're capable of it!

Football is entertainment for the fans. Lavar was a hoot to watch. I would watch just seem him destroy the oposition with his insane hits. For the same reason NASCAR is popular. Fans go to see the spectacular crash. Only a few true fans want to sit on their A**, drink beer, sweat and watch cars drive in circles until the last two dramatic laps BORING.

About AH. Everybody shut the pie hole and wait until he is in the game. He has been working out on his own, with his personal trainer. We should give him a chance to shine or sh** on the feild of play.

GO SKINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
