Schweigert and Moore Back at Work (Updated)

The Redskins are on the field for the morning practice and Jason La Canfora calls with this update from the field:

Shawn Springs continues to take reps at safety and Stuart Schweigert and Kareem Moore are in pads and practicing in 11-on-11 work. Khary Campbell continues to work in Rocky McIntosh's spot during team drills.

Zarnell Fitch, signed by the team Monday, has indeed been waived. The team has signed another defensive lineman, but he is not practicing yet. We'll get the details after practice.

...

Carlos Rogers and Rocky McIntosh are in uniform, but the team continues to make sure they don't overdo it.

H.B. Blades is scheduled to have arthroscopic knee surgery today.

The following usual suspects are not in pads and are working with athletic trainers: Devin Thomas, Malcolm Kelly, Anthony Mix, LaRon Landry, Erasmus James and Chris Wilson.

Others missing from practice are Anthony Montgomery and Rian Wallace, both of whom had hand surgery Monday; and Eric Shelton, who has shoulder and neck problems.

I want to give my two cents on something real quick...

I'm still reading blogger comments about JC's lack of "Football IQ"..."he's too slow for the offense"..."Collins has a better Football IQ"...

I'm going to play the race card here so if you don't want to hear it then scroll down...

This is rascist bull....Anyone who has been to training camp would not put Todd Collins in the same sentence with Campbell. He's the one who has not caught up with the speed of the offense. He looks confused and threw many balls into the dirt. I have nothing against Collins, he played well down the stretch last year which a backup does. We all know that Campbell has growing to do. He has made bad decisions just like every white and black QB, but what about the Manning brothers? Didn't they struggle with reads. People were ready to run Ely Manning out of town...

It's one thing the say that Campbell makes slow reads or plays slow...that's honest football criticism, but to say he can't play the position because he's slow is a rascist statement.

Campbell needs to play well for the Skins to have any chance of making the playoffs. He's got weapons and he has the tools, it's on him now, but give the kid a break....

Oh...by the way, if Brett Favre were black, would he even have a chance to be in the Hall with a TD/INT ratio like his?

C'mon be honest....

Sorry Greg, I couldn't resist. Anyone else see that section in "Real Sports with Giant Bumble" last night on Parcells?

What amazed me - apart from the fact that the guy has ZERO life outside of football, of course - is that he looks really old now. He's also got those 'interesting' way-too-large teeth that are probably either veneers or that he pops into a glass of water on the bedside table every night.

I thought Andrea Kremer did a great job of asking him the tough questions and didn't let him dodge them. Sadly though, the rest of the show was presented by Bryant Gumbel...

sicwidit, I'm with you for the most part, dude... always makes me uncomfortable when I hear these criticisms that Campbell is slow or stupid...

I've been slammed for saying so before, but I think on some level it's because he's a black Southerner. There's as much of a (conscious or unconscious) anti-Southern bias at work here as anything else.

But then I'm a bleeding-heart liberal so blah blah blah...

Maybe I'm wrong but I just don't see race as being an argument for calling someone "slow".

That being said, I don't believe he is slow at all so that in general is a false comment but to blame it on racism seems to be a little far-fetched unless i missed something.

That Parcell interview was interesting. I had a friend over last night who doesn't follow football. We were watching and was like, "Wow that guy is really cranky what's the matter with him?" to which I responded...."He's Bill Parcells"

Posted by: Anonymous | July 29, 2008 10:05 AM | Report abuse

Not a fan of your team (but I enjoy your comments and banter), but I will say that I don't believe that it's a matter of Soup being slow, but the OBVIOUS factor of him having to learn a new offense every year. Seriously, the "great" QBs stay in the same offense every year. Last night, the NFLN replayed a playoff game where Farve threw a horrible interception w/something like 3 mins left. Last year, HE cost his team a chance to go to the SB. Finally, I think many Southerners get a bad rap b/c of their diction and (what's a good euphemism for slow?) "relaxed" speaking style.

Posted by: Anonymous RI Regular | July 29, 2008 10:07 AM | Report abuse

I won't go into the race issue, but the Favre thing is pretty interesting to me. That guy is an interception machine. Defensive coordinators - and I have two relatives who are defensive assistants in the league - absolutely LOVE to face Favre because they know he's going to simply throw a few up there for grabs.

I still think that the resurgence of the Packers was a result of the house that Holmgren built, not Favre. And the main reason they did so well last year was because McCarthy did the smart thing and limited Favre's options in the offense, keeping things to a minimum, to the basics (slants, etc). He's just not that good a quarterback. Never has been. He's tough as he11, I'll definitely give him that, but he's not even close to being in the league of elite quarterbacks like Marino, Elway or Montana. Not even close.

PS - if you never hear from me again, it's because John Madden sent NFL Security to take me out.

Posted by: Carl | July 29, 2008 10:08 AM | Report abuse

Sic, I think you are right that many posts made here and other places against Jason Campbell are racially motivated, but I don't think you can ascribe all of them to that bias.

For example, I would say that Heath Shuler was about as slow a quarterback as I ever saw. Same goes for Gus Frerotte. Joey Harrington manages to combine the lightness of touch of a classically pianist with the antsiness of Naomi Campbell waiting for someone to give her her cellphone and the infamous dimness of the departed Princess Diana.

Does that somehow make me "anti-white"?

I think in terms of making decisions in the Al Saunders O that JC was slower then Collins.

I'd defy anyone to say that JC looks slower or has less Football IQ after watching any training camp session this offseason though. Heck Racist wouldn't cover that condition. I'd say legally blind and ignorant of football would be prereqs for such a conclusion.

You may be right Nate. That said, he's put all of those pounds back - and more - since he came to Miami. He now seems to wear those pants where the waistband fits snugly into the armpits giving him a "weeble" look.

I love what he's done/doing for the Fins, but I get the impression that he has nothing whatsoever to do with himself now that the roster is mostly built and the coaches are busy coaching.

He tried to defend that by saying he wasn't interested in coaching any more, but he really did strike a very sad note when he talked about Romo's blown snap and how he can't go through that any more.

It almost sounded like the coaching equivalent of "no mas".

Hello everyone,


As some of you know, I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to "The War Zone". I wanted to share with you what happened.

He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their service.

So really he was just here to make a showing for the American's back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States. I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.

If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

HTTR!

In service,


CPT Jeffrey S. Porter

Really?? Marino?

Marino: cmp% 59.4, 61361yds, 420 TDs, 252 INTs, passer rating 86.4

Favre: cmp% 61.4, 61655 yds, 442 TDs, 288 INTs, passer rating 85.7

And Brett Favre has 2 SB appearances (to Marino's 1), 1 SB ring (to Marino's 0), 3 MVPs (to Marino's 1), and he has the all-time record for consecutive starts by a QB (by far).

Not in Marino's league??? Get out of here.

Bill Parcells' QB commandments:

Quarterback commandments:
1. Ignore other opinions - Press or TV, agents or advisors, family or wives, friends or relatives, fans or hangers on - ignore them on matters of football, they don't know what's happening here.
2. Clowns can't run a huddle - don't forget to have fun but don't be the class clown. Clowns and leaders don't mix. Clowns can't run a huddle.
3. Fat QBs can't avoid the rush - A quarterback throws with his legs more than his arm. Squat and run.
4. Know your job cold - this is not a game without errors. Keep yours to a minimum. Study.
5. Know your own players - Who's fast? Who can catch? Who needs encouragement? Be precise. Know your opponent.
6. Be the same guy every day - in condition. Preparing to lead. Studying your plan. A coach can't prepare you for every eventuality. Prepare yourself and remember, impulse decisions usually equal mistakes.
7. Throwing the ball away is a good play - sacks, interceptions and fumbles are bad plays. Protect against those.
8. Learn to manage the game - personnel, play call, motions, ball handling, proper reads, accurate throws, play fakes. Clock. Clock. Clock. Don't you ever lose track of the clock.
9. Get your team in the end zone - passing stats and TD passes are not how you're going to be judged. Your job is to get your team in the end zone and that is how you will be judged.
10. Don't panic - when all around you is in chaos, you must be the hand that steers the ship. If you have a panic button so will everyone else. Our ship can't have a panic button.
11. Don't be a celebrity QB - we don't need any of those. We need battlefield commanders that are willing to fight it out, every day, every week and every season and lead their team to win after win after win.

Romo may have lost track of some of these...

Sicwidit is correct. that mental stigma is usually associated with black QB's. especially their wonderlic scores, they dont harp on the white QB's scores that much. to prove it go look up John Elways score. excellent point about favre TD/INT ratio. they never talk about his INT's.

Some people will never see it, just like being a man it might be hard for me to see the glass ceiling for a woman, that doesnt mean it doesnt exist.

The Truth says that all southerners are "slow" in the yankee term and The Truth loves being "slow". The Truth says that means laid back, not retarded.

Wow, stepped away from the computer for a couple hours and the blog goes to hell! Where do I start?

1) I doubt that Jason Campbell's critics are all racist. I'm sure it comes into play to some, but there are several black QBs that have been highly romanticized (see McNabb, Donovan and Vick, Michael) by the national media. So I don't totally buy that.

2) I doubt that military guy who posted about Barack Obama is real. Of all places to post something about a guy running for president, you choose the Redskins blog on the Washington Post? Seriously? And you don't know what Obama's itinerary was like; you're talking about an impromptu shaking of hands vs. a scheduled appearance. Seems to me like a McCain lover trying to find something--ANYTHING--to throw more dirt.

3) Brett Favre IS in the league with Elway, Montana, and Marino as far as I'm concerned (as much as I hate to admit right now). I certainly wouldn't put him #1 of all time, and I absolutely think he's the most overhyped QB ever this side of Mike Vick. But he's definitely in the conversation. To say anything else is foolish.

brownwood26, while I agree it's hard to distinguish who is real or fake up here, I think the alleged Capt. is 100% correct. I was in the military once a upon a time, and I know who and what makes that operation go.

It isn't the officers or highly enlisted NCOs. It all about the soldiers (including SGT. and SSG), E1-E6. If Obama was to meet up with wounded soldiers in Germany, he should've kept that on his itinerary. There are people as young as 18 and 19 giving their lives over there.

Speaking of prejudice, I think that Irish Americans have never had a fair shake of it. All those "Sean and Paddy" jokes are very denigrating. ("denigrate" here is not used in the racial sense, only in the pro-Irish sense) And the "Fighting" Irish -- what's that about?

In fact, Irish Irishmen have been treated very badly in their own country, both by the British occupiers and by Irish Irishwomen.

Most people do. It's just the issue is cheapened by folks who pull the race card too much or in inappropriate situations(i.e.-the criticism of an NFL QB for his play). Making JC out to be the victim of hate crime by fans or media or anyone else is ridiculous. On the contrary, I think he's more the victim of expectations being too high for him because he's a black QB wearing #17 in Washington. Some folks have seen too many highlights of Doug Williams throwing 4 tds in the 2nd quarter of Super Bowl XXII--that isn't necessarily going to be Campbell. If he's held to realistic expectations (which for right now, should be a solid starter who manages a game well), you'd be surprised how much better the talk surrounding him becomes.

The reason people hate Campbell and think he's not very smart has nothing to do with his race or with his being a Southerner.

It's because he went to Auburn, the dumb factory of the South. It he'd gone to 'Bama he would have started out smart and ended up a genius, sort of like Joe Namath. It's that simple.

If JC wins, he'll remain the Skins QB; if he doesn't, he won't.

Is someone advocating he remain QB if he loses games because he's black?

They don't let white QBs around here keep losing games and remaining at QB (see: Jay Schroeder, Heath Shuler, et al).

So why the heck would JC be any different?

Having said that, I think he's the real deal, and he'll win games - and postseason games - for this franchise.

To the Captain, who posted about Obama (I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt about being a real post and respectfully reply.)

Over here, the response reported on the news, was that Obama's staff didn't WANT it to appear to be a campaign event, by meeting with troops. It was also widely reported that the Pentagon prevented him from meeting with injured troops b/c it would appear to be a political event.

it amazes me the Obama rhetoric on here from some people about he did not shake hands with soldiers. what they dont tell you is that McCain a Vietnam vet voted agaisnt giving our GI"S better benefits when they come home. so I ask you would you rather someone not shake your hand, or have someone say I know you almost died serving our country but I dont see the need to help you out once you get home.

So for those McCain supporters tell both sides of the story. Obama was wrong for not shaking hands, and so is McCain for not wanting to help the Soldiers when they tour is over

About the "captain"


Interesting comments from the "captain" who claims to be serving in afghanistan, and claims to be objectively reporting about Obama's visit.

While I would never denigrate a serviceman defending our country, let me state that i am NOT convinced that this is really from one. The GOP has set the standard for lying in political campaigns with the disgraceful "Swift Boat" performance, which lied and denigated an honorable American who served bravely in the combat.

They are doing the same thing this campaign, and John McCain has already begun telling lies about Obama and his philosophy. But the real dirty work, as before, will be by pretend patriots who will slander him under cover of their own lies.

As for the "Captain," if indeed he is who he says he is, and if indeed he is serving in afghanistan, my primary advice is to "watch your six."

Because George W. Bush, the man who Mccain now embraces physically and philosophically, abandoned the real war on terrorism in your neck of the woods to start his Oil War in Iraq, you are in greater danger than ever. And George Bush served fake turkey to servicemen when he was in iraq for a visit. (Nice to see him go to a combat zone, after chickening out in Vietnam).

McCain trotted through a marketplace in baghdad pretending it was a stroll in the Park, when secretly he was protected by three choppers and a battalion of soldiers. The marketplace was attacked after he left. I guess that didn't bother you, though.

McCain wants to stay another hundred years in Iraq. And, as was pointed out here, McCain has become a sunshine soldier who now votes against the needs of the real ones serving today.

And finally, anyone who has been watching "Generation Kill" realizes, sometimes the captains leading the troops are idiots.

And to attempt to draw the conclusion you did from one incident, as you do, is pretty good indication of idiocy, naivete, or the Fox approach to fairness and balance..

Oh. If you ARE overseas, you don't appreciate some of the other benes the GOP has brought us. Be thankful you don't have to pay to fill up your HumVee. It would be well into triple digits here.

In the meantime, may I respecfully suggest you keep your propaganda where it belongs, on political boards. We'd appreciate it if you don't sour the stomach of us who seek solace here from the incompetence and evil of the current administration and the stand-in candidate for Bush's Third Term.

The great thing I learned early about being a Redskin fan is it brings together all views for one common cause.

Whether it was out of your own beliefs, or because you are a right wing tool serving the McCain campaign, your post helps drive a wedge into that feeling.

And yes, I'm doing the same by responding. But Silence equals assent, and your inflammatory comments needed an answer.
