Brian Westbrook's visit with Redskins won't prompt a campaign by his brother

Although Redskins cornerback Byron Westbrook is pleased that his brother, all-pro running back Brian Westbrook, will visit with the Redskins on Wednesday at Redskins Park, he will not lobby for the team to sign the former Philadelphia Eagles star.

"I'm not part of that decision-making process," Byron said in a phone interview Tuesday afternoon. "Obviously, he's my brother, and it would be great to have the chance to play with him, but I'll let him handle all of that.

"Now, I might be up there [at the complex], but it would just to be to get a workout in. I wouldn't follow them around on his visit or anything like that. Besides, they'll take great care of him. If anything, maybe I'll bump into them in passing. Maybe I'll throw a towel at him. But that's it."

does this mean the rb performance at minicamp was underwhelming?

Dallas has no contiunity...save for most of their defense....They think Choice can be a #1 RB. They think Dez Bryant will be an impact player. Roy Williams. Miles Austin is mad. And they now have to pick between a potential bust in Free and BArron to by Romo's LT.....

The Mail I receive at Work:

Dear mistamoe,

I've started working part time at a day-care center. I've noticed a lot of things wrong with this place.

The staff members go way too far in my opinion when they "discipline" the kids.

They curse at them. They slap them. They spray water at them from a water bottle.

Snack time consists of sugary drinks and things like Twinkies, cookies, and other foods that are all-sugar and no-nutrients.

The children hardly ever have a crayon in their hands. I really want to do something to help these kids, but I don't know what.

signed,

Barney Dino. Saur.


This is an easy one as I know that particular die hard redskins' fan day care center.

The place isn't called "The Riggo Drill" for nothig.

Tell the kids not to wear cowboys, giants, eagles, or raiders sports paraphenalia and no one will hit them.

Unless, of course, they actually like it.

Miles Austin always looks mad. At least he does whenever he makes a good play….after he preens and postures after a catch he gets that “I am really intense and PO’ed right now” face going… I h8 that. That alone is one of the reasons I am happy to see LL30 putting on all that muscle. I look forward to seeing him knock that look off Ausitn’s face this year. AND, I think he’s probably got a picture of Brandon Jacobs in his weight room……..looking forward to seeing that matchup again with LL at STRONG safety.

While I could quibble with your odds, I think the main point is the division is pretty even -- with no outstanding teams.

Each team has areas of considerable strength and notable weaknesses/unknowns. Its still a strong division, but it'll be tough for any team to get to beyond 11-5 -- very tough schedules.

"I think Clinton Portis would look great in a Dolphin uniform. Lets send him too."

He, unlike Portis, does still have a burst.

And the Washington Redskins continue their retroactive dominance over the 2003-2008 NFL seasons.

Posted by: Stu27 | May 11, 2010 12:50 PM | Report abuse

Even though the Washington Redskins have added Larry Johnson and Willie Parker to a backfield that includes Clinton Portis, the team has invited Brian Westbrook for a visit on Wednesday, according to sources.


NFC East blog
ESPN.com's Matt Mosley writes about all things NFC East in his division blog.

• Blog network: NFL Nation


Westbrook comes highly recommended by his former Eagles teammate, Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb, who apparently has made his case for the running back since McNabb was acquired by Washington in a trade, a source said.

Westbrook, who was released by the Eagles in February, has passed a physical with the St. Louis Rams, where he also has a familiarity with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, a former Eagles assistant.

Westbrook's ailments that have passed physical screenings include knee and ankle injuries, as well as multiple concussions.

The Redskins have the first organized team activity May 17-19; their level of interest in Westbrook is unknown. Dialogue between the two sides has been ongoing.

Chris Mortensen is ESPN's senior NFL analyst.

4th, all those players you listed save for Dez Bryant, were there last year. And from all accounts Free was decent last year, it being his first year and all. Their problem on offense is trying to make Romo into Manning and havinghim throw the ball 40 times a game, when they're stronger at running the ball with all three RBs.

I know your hatred for Dallas is unrivaled, but c'mon dude, take off the Burgundy and gold shades for a second.

Gawd!


Moodly, I agree about making predictions at this point. That's why I was saying that right now you can really only look at continuity, and to a lesser extent, additions, as an indicator on who'll be the best this season.

They brought in Barron for the same reasons Shanahan brought in LJ and Parker -- competition.

You didn't read closely.

Again; in the event of an injury to a starting quarterback, which NFC East team has the best back up AND defense to carry the team?

Answer: The Washington Redskins

Jon Kitna has flubbed more opportunities than a eunuch at the Playboy mansion.

And until Vick shows us what he truly has, he's just a guy trying to recover his name and career.

But the skins have--on paper--the best defense in the NFC East.

And I think Rex--with all his faults--has shown that he can play well in a run first, good defense situation.

About the Giants: something I hadn't paid much attention to and should have --

The Giants last year finished 13th in total defense, 13th in yards give up, 15th in pass defense, 14th in rushing defense, 18th in sacks (18th!! The Jints!!), 22nd in interceptions, and (this I did not realize) they finished 30th in both scoring defense and TDs allowed!

The New York Giants! Right there with the St Louis Rams!!

Excuse my overemoting, but that is a performance bad enough to be compared to the Skins' offense.

I think the concussions were real, but that its only very recently that (1) the league made anything of it and (2) the players' association is AOK with the league making a deal about it.

One of the elephants in the middle of the room in the CBA negotiations is about whose pockets the long term health care costs for retired players going to come from. That's a massive class action suit waiting to happen for some unfunded liability. Both the league and the players association would be named defendants.

Obama has finally done something that I absolutely 100% agree with. Obama has decided to shift US drug policy from one of enforcement and criminal focus to one of treatment for drug abuse and addiction. Our focus as a nation should be to help those with a problem. It should be to see how many people we can keep out of jail as opposed to how many people we can lock up.

What's the harm in talking to another old ass RB if we have the camp space? If he is better through the camps then he should earn a spot over one of the other retreads. If not, he's cut.

Question: I saw a couple at a diner a while back. They were completely normal looking, middle aged couple. I was eating breakfast with my dad and they were beside us drinking coffee and reading the paper. We were sitting at the barstools.

When their food came they pushed the barstools back, stood up, then ate the entire meal standing.

Is this cultural, religious or something else?

Does anyone have the answer?

"Did you put their pics up on a board and throw darts at them to come to this conclusion....What has fast wilie recently accomplished to make him better then westbrook or LJ?"


I have a ph d in the exact sciences.

My master's dissertation's thesis was "The Power of Educated Guessing".

Herds of bulls sit and study my sh!t.

And the educated guess I'm making is based on Johnson's declining performance in Kansas City and Cincy.

He looked slow to the hole in more than just one of the several games I caught a glimpse of him in.

Both Jammal Charles and Cedric Benson shined behind offensive lines Johnson plodded behind.

And as for Parker, my guess is he still has the 'jump-cut' needed to excel in the zone-blocking scheme featured by Mr. Shanahan.

If not him, then I guess one on the rookies will suffice.

But I know Johnson won't.

And that's not a guess.

You don't see that going hand in hand w/ the new med-system, scamp?

Sorry - just waiting for the mandated tracking chip here.

I don't know dik, I just think it's time to try something new because this war on drugs crap just ain't working. Although I'm about as far from a socialist as they come I still think helping people, especially one's that seek help and are willing to help themselves, is a great thing. Those that just mooch off of everyone else are not on my "to help" list.

Lets sign Brian Westbrook. If we need a back that can catch coming out of the backfield, I can't think of a better available player to do it.

"Obama has finally done something that I absolutely 100% agree with."


The Supreme Court thingy bothers me.

There's a story that the Kagan lady might be, well, you know, a lesbian.

But that's not what bothers me.

It's just that after Sotomayor, I was hoping Obama would put a decent looking hottie on the bench.

Clarene Thomas wrote me and said he hoped for the same thing.

I mean, what, Obama couldn't put say, some fine MILF on the bench, someone like Elizabeth Hassleback, Katie Couric, Soledad O'Brien, or Janet Jackson?

I'm just saying.....

I'm more of a 'legalize' kinda guy myself. Never was much for puritanism - I like the Amish approach - try it, if it's for you.

And the war you're talkin' about is just for show - it was lost before it started. Same players on both sides... and regular folks caught in the middle, right? Tragedy.

Huh.. mildly intrigued by the idea of Haynie going to the Vikings, which would kind of parallel Reggie White's move to Green Bay... a move that helped Favre get a ring. What a delight it would be to see Albert Haynesworth, Brett Favre and Brad Childress hoist the Lombardi next February. And by "delight" I mean "nausea-inducing shabingus."

ih8dallas, I've never heard of that, and a quick google of "eat standing up" doesn't bring back anything definitive... my guess is that's some kind of bogus dietary practice borne of quackery and/or pseudoscience. Just a guess.

sure... but personally find it amusing that some large proportion of this blog insists he-who-shall-not-be-named is the innocent victim of vicious rumors propagated by our lazy, mendacious, and self-serving blog host... despite tell-tale (albeit unreliable) evidence elsewhere of discussions ongoing with various clubs.

take it for what it is worth -- not much! -- although if it were completely moot, I don't see why an agent would be leaking that sort of information.
