MVP: Skinz, I'm with you about Springs for MVP. He's playing for a lot this season. It could be considered a contract year for him, even if he doesn't retire he'll want to end it with a good season. I see him playing multiple positions also. I like Springs in as the nickle CB, he's more dangerous.


Off. MVP: Clinton Portis will once again be among the better RB's, but wont get credited for it. I see 1500 total yds. 14 TD's


Def. MVP: London Fletcher. Is the "QB" of the defense Has amassed over 100 tackles every year since 2000, however last year was his lowest total (129) since 2001 (119).


Most Improved in 08': LaRon Landry. This dude was playing (o)possum this preseason. Showed last year that he's ready to become a top 5 safety. Has a mean streak that reminiscent of Sean Taylor. Penalties for late hits last year will benefit him and the entire secondary this year.


Biggest Disapointment: I'm sorry to say this and I hope I'm wrong but I gotta say Jason Campbell. He still holds the ball way too long, and looks like an anvil in the pocket. I'm really hoping that he has a breakout season. But it still looks like he needs work with his mechanics and decision making.


Most impactful rookie: Chad Rinehart/Fred Davis. Since the oline is aging and injury riddled the last two seasons, Chad will more than likely be called on this season. Can see him playing either guard position (especially LG). Remember how we used to struggle putting the ball in the end zone inside the 20? Problem solved with Fred Davis. Inside the 20 I envision Davis as the TE, Cooley in the Slot, Split RB's with Portis and Betts.

RUDI’S CRAZY DAY IN DETROIT
Posted by Mike Florio on September 2, 2008, 9:17 p.m.

A strange thing happened to running back Rudi Johnson when he visited with the Detroit Lions on Monday.

Someone stole his stuff.

Seriously.

Specifically, and as we’re told by a reliable source (i.e., not the person who told Mort that Joey Harrington had agreed to terms with the Ravens on Monday, or the person who told John Clayton that Todd Bouman had agreed to terms with the Ravens on Tuesday), Johnson left his bags outside CEO Matt Millen’s office while he met with team officials and, ultimately, worked out a deal with the team.

So when Johnson came back to get his bags, they were nowhere to be found. Johnson and Millen were stumped.

Enter the eye in the sky.

The team checked the videotapes generated by the team’s in-house surveillance system, and they quickly identified the culprit.

So who might it have been? None other than Tatum Bell, who lost his gig with the Lions after Rudi arrived.

Per the source, Bell took the bags to the house of a female acquaintance. When confronted on the matter, Bell offered up some cockamamie story that he thought the bags belonged to someone he knew. The girl, however, said that she hadn’t seen Bell in several months and he showed up out of the blue and asked her to keep the bags for a while.

Johnson has retrieved the bags, and it’s our understanding that charges won’t be pressed.

Tatum apparently didn’t know that he was being monitored.

Fortunately, the displaced running back wasn’t Najeh Davenport.

If the D can hold the other team out of the endzone you will probably score more points than them, unless you don't.

One thing I came to appreciate about Gibbs 2.0, even if it was ugly, was his slower style of play. It had several benefits. It kept games close, so the 4th quarter would matter. Gibbs believed character would win in the 4th quarter. The Skins ran fewer plays, which would lead to less injuries and a stronger team in December. It meant the starters would play a higher % of snaps, so the depth players weren't on the field as much in any given game. Which is an asset if your depth isn't that strong.

Zorn is a complete contrast. He is very focused on a fast tempo. It should be more watchable. I like that Zorn will play to win, unlike Gibbs who played not to lose. But the up tempo will also mean our depth is more important, and I have my doubts as to that being a good thing.

Brown, someday I'll send the jersey up to the rafters myself. Some aspects of the married life is cool without a doubt!

And it doesn't matter if you didn't play with HOF talent, dude. Besides, as I've got older I look as myself as more a GM than some jock on the field. GM (Brass) makes the decisions:

Drafts: I love draft day. I usually do this at night at a very loud place serving vodka in the green room.

Trades: I'll never trade a franchise player. I'd sign franchise players to incentive, circumstantial laden contracts. if they perform well, I'll extend em'. Trade camp fodder, low round picks, UFA? Yes. Especially camp fodder.

Cuts: Sometimes this is the worst part of the job. It hurts to cut someone that you've sort of grown with in some aspects. Other times you're kicking them out the damn door.

Posted by: AL Zeke etc | September 3, 2008 1:33 PM

If Zorn runs more plays, is this what people are referring to when they say "It's going to be a long season"? Or do they mean 19 games instead of 16? Or will there be extra bye weeks?

People say "It's going to be a long season" like it's a bad thing. I don't get it. I hate it when football's over. For me, the longer the season, the better. I would be more worried if people said "It's going to be a short season."

Sween, you're the expert in these sorts of things. Can you explain it to me is small words?

Posted by: Chris Rock | September 3, 2008 1:53 PM | Report abuse

A few days ago someone suggested that this team has too much talent to go 4-12. what would you say if we had a team that had:

C Jeff Bostic
G/T Joe Jacoby
C/G Raleigh McKenzie
WR Art Monk
RB Earnest Byner
CB Tom Carter
DE Charles Mann
FB Brian Mitchell
QB Mark Rypien
WR Ricky Sanders
G Mark Schlereth
CB Darrell Green

Sound like a superbowl team? It was. But this was the core of the roster in 1993. The first year after Joe Gibbs retired the first time. The team went 4-12, including a 3-0 LOSS to the Jets at home. I'm not trying to get anyone down, I'm not trying to insult the players, but I don't want people to think that just because we have solid core of players who have performed well in the past, that we will be successful this season.

Go ahead, call me a cowgirls fan (I'm not. Love the Skins). Point to the first preseason game of the season (remember Steve Spurriers first preseason game?) and believe. But with the FO we have now, this team has not moved forward.

I hope like heck I have to eat these words at the end of the season....

"It's going to be a long season"
"It's going to be a short season."

The more games you play, the longer your season is, until it's 72% over, then it's really shorter when you're playing longer until the end before next season.
