How much cap space do we have? I know that we can get really creative...but if we suffer NO injuries which is highly unlikely, then I still think that we are weak at LB, and at the mercy of rogers' knee.

Attaway to keep the 'Skins hype machine going, J-Reid.

Maybe the theme for these videos should be "Redskins Unabridged," as a lot of this is a rehashing of old news regarding Kelly's backstory. For people who have been following the team, the only real news here is "Kelly has looked good in camp thus far." That's my "Redskins in Ten Words or Less" version.

It's a real shame when you cant take criticism.
Wow, I guess the guy cant see that he needs any improvement.

Maybe I didn't express this well. Jasno has no problem with criticism of himself or his work. He was always open to it and, in the early days of the blog, he would respond to it sometimes. And no one has brought any criticism in the past year that he hadn't heard before that. He's heard the criticism, he's considered it, but he doesn't agree with it.

His problem with "anger and hate" referred to all the fighting, hate, and hostility posted on the blog. Most of it has nothing to do with what he wrote or even with the Redskins. It has to do with people like Purple Haze or the nut sack guy or the anons who have nothing to do but criticize the other posters and attack "the regulars," each other, the Redskins' management, and whatever inner demons they're feeling at the time.

This isn't "criticism" he's ignoring. It is borderline psychotic. Read over the posts yesterday afternoon and you can see why he stopped reading.

Nice job upgrading the video quality, even if there isn't any video in the video. That picture with Kelly behind Moss gives an idea of the size difference. Good call on that one

pics make all the difference in these.

As we watch these rookie develop and folks get all excited about the "size" of our recieving corps I offer a different opinion. Santana Moss is smaller than our punter and our kicker. And I would take him on an outfield recieving route against any cornerback in the league. Linebackers and safetys don't seem to keen to have Antwan lining up in the slot, despite his less than towering statue.

I too am excited about new talent, how could we not be? I am also excited about James Thrash who has done positively everything ever asked of him. As our puppies grow up they will learn the speed of the game. They will begin to understand and respect the fact that an NFL hawking safety will hit them harder than they have ever been hit before. In reality we have to expect that one or two of our total draft choices will likely make the active roster. Hamstring injuries don't help their chances.

While I am certainly not arguing that smaller is better, size can not replace experience. Old man McCardell came in last year and caught first down passes and helped get us in to the playoffs. Henry Ellerd did so years ago. They don't run 4-4 40's, but they understand route running and the speed of the game. I will watch cautiously with you all when our rookie studs take thier first few live hits. God willing they will hold on the the football.

In the end guys who can sprint down the field and catch a lob in the open feild streaking for a touchdown are exciting, but first downs win football games. Hopefully that is what our Smurfs are teaching them. Catch the ball, and avoid the brunt of the oncoming hit. Stay healthy. Learn from each catch, not each drop. Nothing is more frustrating to fans or coaches to see a young reciever let a ball hit him in the numbers and fail to hold on to it. Jason can flat out throw the ball, and he should- as often as the gameplan allows. But the upcoming season is our most promising in recent years because nearly all of our players are back, all are seasoned veterans, and they trust each other. Our backups are more seasoned than I think we would prefer, but that is to our benefit.

By the way- Anthony Mix is 6-5, has good speed, and can catch. Wonder where he will end up in all this rookie-dough.
