Redskins coaches, players prepare for first minicamp under Mike Shanahan

The first two days of the Redskins' first voluntary minicamp under Coach Mike Shanahan this weekend will be closed to the media, but there will be press availability on final day, the team announced this afternoon.

Coaches and players will be available for interviews on Sunday after practice at Redskins Park. New Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb is scheduled to participate in the minicamp, which is closed to the public.

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, whom the organization has actively tried to trade, and former starting quarterback Jason Campbell do not plan to attend, according to people familiar with their situations.

Shanahan, out of coaching last season, will continue the installation of his version of the West Coast offense. New defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is in the process of helping players transition from Washington's former 4-3 scheme to a 3-4 defense that, supposedly, will be similar to the Pittsburgh Steelers' aggressive, successful attack.

Shanahan and Allen have said they aren't actively seeking a trade for Haynesworth. Haynesworth has said he doesn't have an issue playing in the 3-4. Fischer has now made it public that there has been no discussion with the Redskins regarding Haynesworth... the team that supposedly made the most sense.
Could be that the local media just doesn't have the sources it claims it has. Nothing but inaccurate reporting with no substance or facts provided at all, just speculation. It's pretty sad when we get the real facts from a damn Tennessee news paper.

I’ve been pretty much saying the same thing as you, and am amazed at how hard the RI guys are pushing this….I don’t usually criticize these guys but they seem to be going overboard on this (Lacanfora as well).

Having said that, though, the last time I remember them pushing a non-story this hard was when they claimed the skins were offering up 2 first rounders for Chad Ocho-cinco…..the deal never happened, but it did turn out that the RI guys were right that the skins did make that offer…..

Given the recent commentary from an unknown source that our safeties number among the poorest tacklers at the position in the NFL, I hope that Haslett installs a process that mandates that our safeties learn to wrap up the ball carrier rather than just hit him with shoulder to try to get as splashier hit as possible. And I am talking about YOU Laron Landry but Chris Horton has also exhibited this tendency. If only Reed Dougherty were fast enough to put on the big hit, so the best he can do is grab a shoestring and hold on....

All other positions except for FS, RB, ILB, OLB, and NT.

We have Kareem Moore as the only real free safety on the roster.

All of our RBs have either 2,000 carries or will be 30 years old this year.

London Fletcher is probably the only guy that has proved he can play ILB in a 3-4.

Orakpo is probably the only guy we are sure can play OLB in a 3-4.

Maake can only go as far as his ankle will take him. Bryant may be good for depth but if Maake goes down it would be nice to have another true NT around.

Most of these holes will not be present until midseason. That's when not retaining young talent and getting rid of middle round draft picks will come back to bite us.

Are starting QB is not holding out he will be there this weekend, are maybe backup QB is not holding out either he was told to stay home.

AH is not holdinh out he is missing voluntary offseason workouts to workout on his own, is it right who knows but many players on many teams do it.

Since the Skins are in dire need of a seal-the-deal LT, thought it would be of interest to see a top ten list from the NYT, as determined by a 32 team film study:

"Best Left Tackles in the N.F.L: The Top 10 List

10. Marcus McNeill, San Diego Chargers

Has regressed ever so slightly since his rookie and sophomore seasons, but good feet still complement his great size.

9. Jammal Brown, New Orleans Saints

When healthy, the nastiest LT in football.

8. Matt Light, New England Patriots

Mobile in the run game and capable of handling one-on-one matchups against elite pass-rushers.

7. Jordan Gross, Carolina Panthers

Was somewhat up and down before breaking his ankle last season, but when he’s right, he’s stellar in all facets.

6. D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets

Finesse athlete who has learned to hold his ground on an island in pass protection. Also a deft run-blocker in space.

5. Michael Roos, Tennessee Titans

You watch a game and forget he’s out there. Isn’t that what being a good blocker is all about?

4. Jared Gaither, Baltimore Ravens

The largest and perhaps most talented lineman in the game. Hard to believe there are whispers about his work ethic.

3. Jake Long, Miami Dolphins

Gets out of his stance quicker than any LT in the league. That’s impressive considering he brings top-notch strength.

2. Ryan Clady, Denver Broncos

Arguably the game’s most athletic lineman. Uncanny ability to recover instantly from mistakes (which, by the way, are few).

1. Joe Thomas, Cleveland Browns

A natural. Rarely does his side of the pocket quiver in pass protection, and on the ground, he can seal defenders or throw blocks on the move with ease.

Wait, what about ...

Bryant McKinnie, Minnesota Vikings

Poor fundamentals and bankrupt toughness. Mediocre at best.

Jason Peters, Philadelphia Eagles

After last season, you’d think he was getting paid by the sack."

It's awful the way they trashed Petey.

I'm good with that plan. We spent every pick on defense last year except 1 7th rounder. We spent picks on WR and TE the year before. We traded for a QB. All that's left is RB and OL -- and our OL was close to the worst in football last season -- bottom 5 in both yds/carry and sacks.

The Skins have better talent on Offense that McNabb usually has. Thomas and Kelly are going to show a huge leap in year 3 and Davis and Cooley will be the best TE combo in the league. Shanny can get 1000 yards out of a 19 year old junior college back, so he can squeeze a good season out of our new 3 headed monster. This team is going to win 9-10 games with a solid O line and it starts with Okung at 4.

Berry is a playmaker and instant difference maker, but you cannot pass on a 10 year starter at LT when the Oline is the most glaring weakness. Okung is the answer in pass protection and improving the running game. He's got a motor that won't stop and a mean streak to match. I live in Florida and have seen Berry play about a dozen times. He's the real deal and worthy of a top ten pick, but he doesn't make the Skins any better. Okung does.

Veteran free agent defensive tackle Howard Green continues his visit with the Washington Redskins today, according to an NFL source with knowledge of the situation.

Green, 31, is a 6-foot-2, 320-pound former LSU player who was drafted in the sixth round in the 2002 NFL draft by the Houston Texans.

He played last season for the New York Jets and has previous stints with the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and the Baltimore Ravens.

In a dozen games last season with the Jets, who made it to the AFC championship game, Green recorded 23 tackles.

For his career, Green has registered 78 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles.

"Redskins coaches, players prepare for first minicamp under Mike Shanahan"


As are we bloggas.

And we'd have some nefarious desires we'd like to have satisfied:

a. How is does the passing game (schemewise) look?

b. Is Willie Parker as fast as they claim he is?

c. What's the 1st team o-line?

d. Name the receiver McNabb seems to have gelled with.

e. Is CP in shape?

f. Is Marko getting more or less reps that M Kelly?

g. Are we seeing two tight sets or is F Davis flexed wide like a receiver?

h. Is LL playing strong or free safety?

i. How's C Horton doing?

j. And finally, does P Buchanon look ready to play corner or just return punts?

Of course, this is a long list.

But a thread a day on each is enough to satisfy until the draft.

Hey Anthony Mix,
Not being argumentative, but are you being serious or sarcastic? [Draft Berry @ #4]

You see my view is entirely different:
A pass rushing DE is more essential than a S
An OT is more essential than a S
A CB actually covers a WR all over the field and is thus more essential than a S.

Therefore I am thinking Berry should not even be drafted until about 15.
But then again, Taylor was drafted at #5
So Joe Gibbs and Vinnie were thinking differently I suppose.

Anyone else's thoughts on the value of a S?

Posted by: RedskinRay1 | April 14, 2010 1:40 PM | Report abuse

I think that's a decent assessment on position value but the real question is should we draft a safety at #4. You may feel that CB, LT, and DE are all more valuable positions but you must take into account value, need, and prospect grade. The rankings would arguably be:

Based on Value:
LT
CB
DE
FS

Based on need:
LT
FS
CB
DE

Based on prospects
FS
LT
CB
DE

LT is the top choice assuming Okung is there. If he is gone then you have to look at Berry Vs. Trent Williams or somebody else. We already have 2 pass rushing DEs so scratch that off the list. The best CB is probably Haden but he's a reach at #4 and it's arguably not even a need. Berry fills a need and is not a reach at #4. It makes sense to look at Berry but in our case the need for a LT may be too great for us to pass on Trent Williams. If we think we can get a left tackle somewhere else then I don't think we would be wrong to sign Berry.

"My favorite Chapelle was Black Bush."

You gotta get the video of the 1st stand up of his to truly appreciate Chappelle.

It's loaded with clever self-referential jokes woven in a tight routine that's massively funny.

Best joke(s)?:

"...pawn shop, liquor store, porn shop, gunstore, check cashing store, hooker, pawn shop,...hey, you're taking me to the ghetto!!!!"

And from two white cops, "He's a dead negro and we shot him?"

"Sprinkle some crack on him, they'll never blame us if they see that..."

Then, there's:

"I bought a bag of weed from a baby at 2 o'clock in the morning."

"I felt guilty, so I let the windows of my limo down to ask the baby why he was out selling weed at 2 o'clock in the morning."

"The baby's answer?: I gots kids to feed, n!gga!"

How does a baby have kids?

It kills me whenever I hear it.

I see J Reid has learned a few trick from his boy JLC. He keeps repeating the same line "Albert Haynesworth, whom the organization has actively tried to trade" in posts in order to keep the jibba jabba going. Kudos.

THE WORST! Jason Reid: Please stop with that nonsense. Just add this phrase to the list.....
Campbell, whom the FO tried to trade for...
Devin Thomas, whom people in the organization said giggled in the film room...
Offensive line, "which we've mentioned before the FO neglected to address..."
Portis, who missed 8 games last year w/ a concussion and showed up...

PLEASE STOP. We all know their issues on and off the field. We read this stuff everyday. WE GOT IT!

Is it just me, or is anyone else thinking that Kareem Moore might have a break out season and prove to be a solid FS? Thus ending the LL experiment at FS.

He had a few blown assignments last year but I attribute that to lack of playing time and preparation. If he's the full time FS I think he as potential. When he's out there I see hustle and effort combined with good speed and power for a free safety.

Moe, that baby joke is actually based on a real story over here in Langley Park, I think. Sure, a little hyperbole sprinkled on, but still pretty disturbing... and damn funny.

I have it on good authority that AH92 and JC17 will be working out on their own this weekend... possibly on a high school field just south of Nashville, Tennessee.

Argument goes that regardless of what they feel about the organization, the coaching staff, offensive and defensive alignments and schemes, teammates, free agents, draft prospects, contract terms, and other spring training issues -- as highly paid professional atheletes, they recognize and accept that they must stay in shape.

Besides, JC17 figures that he'll get all the training he needs for the upcoming season just standing there looking clueless while AH92 repeatedly bulldozes him and slams him into the turf -- while AH92 figures he'll get all the training he needs at blitzing unblocked and unabated into the QB.

Clash of the Titans, indeed!

Select the best offseason move (so far):

a. fins acquire B Marshall

b. jets acquire S Holmes

c. skins acquire McNabb

d. (I'm missing something, ain't I?, says the one-legged track star.)


Moe goes with the fins acquiring Marshall.

Yes, this is a skins' blog, but R Brown, B Marshall, D Bess, B Hartline, T Ginn, C Henne will all be dolphins longer than D McNabb will be a redskin.

And McNabb's success is tied to whatever the skins decide to do with their offensive line--a work inprogress, thank you.

The AFC East is on the rise.

Good thing we play the AFC South, this go 'round.

Or is it?: A Johnson, O Daniels, M Schaub, P Manning, R Wayne, D Clark, V Young, C Johnson, MJ Drew....

The Haynesworth story is overblown for sure - although the organization did offer him to Philly - so there is at least something to it. If someone coughs up a 2nd rounder he's gone (which would be foolish). If not, he's rotating DE/NT (which is good).

Baldinger was partly right. McNabb ain't that great. And he's 33, and there's no protection for him. Even if we draft a LT - we still need a back up LT, back up Center and a RT. And we can't draft a RT because we we're still giving picks away for 30+ former pro bowlers.

Posted by: BrooklynSkins | April 14, 2010 10:48 PM | Report abuse

I'm kinda disappointed we didn't trade for Marshall. Not sure if we didn't try or broncos only wanted draft picks. He sure would have been fun to watch catching passes from mcnabb. I hope our young wrs break out and catch se balls! another quick fix in this uncapped year could be sharper at fs and move landry back to ss. Not a big fan of Albert but you gotta replace him if you're gonna trade em. Maybe package portis along with Albert and cash to Baltimore for gaither and a fifth or fourth. Just a thought.

Heck, I say we convert Haynesworth into a left tackle.
