Shanahan, Redskins wrap up OTAs

The Redskins wrapped up their fourth and final session of organized team activities Thursday, and Coach Mike Shanahan addressed a laundry list of items afterward as the team prepares for the mandatory three-day minicamp that begins next Wednesday. That day should bring the long-awaited appearance of defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth.

Other topics of note:

Clinton Portis's absence Thursday: Shanahan doesn't go into specifics about why various players miss practices. But he said: "Clinton's been great in the off-season program...This is the first one he's missed all year, and I knew about it."

Portis is scheduled to be at quarterback Donovan McNabb's Kids Clinic in suburban Philadelphia on Saturday.

The signing of receiver Mike Furrey: Because Santana Moss and Joey Galloway were away from practice Wednesday, and the Redskins had a couple of guys out with minor injuries (Shanahan wouldn't say who or what the injuries are), they were left with only five receivers for practice.

"Any time you do lose a couple guys, you take a look at the depth outside the organization," Shanahan said. "Like I said, there's some guys that liked the way he played, liked the way he competed. He's caught a lot of balls. He can play inside and outside, that type of player. Now he gets a chance to compete."

Shanahan said Furrey would remain on the roster into training camp. Which brings up another item.

Opening of camp: Shanahan hadn't previously unveiled the day camp will begin, but he said repeatedly Thursday that it would be July 29 (also a Thursday). The first practice likely would be the following day. The first preseason game, at home against Buffalo, is 15 days later, on Aug. 13.

Westbrook and Moss: Shanahan had no update on two pressing issues. He said the club still has an offer out to free agent running back Brian Westbrook - another player who's expected at McNabb's clinic Saturday - but he didn't know much else.

"To be honest with you, I haven't kept abreast of that in the last week," Shanahan said. "I'm not sure where Brian's at. As I told you before, we did make an offer to him, and I'm sure he's sitting back and trying to evaluate his offers and come up with the best scenario for him."

He also said he has not had any contact with the league regarding wide receiver Santana Moss's possible involvement with Anthony Galea, the doctor accused by federal authorities of distributing HGH and other performance enhancing drugs to several professional athletes.

Cutting tight end Sean Ryan: The Redskins cut the veteran Tuesday, part of the way Shanahan wants to deal with players, he said. "I like to be honest with these guys," he said. "If I have somebody that will not be part of the 80 [players] once we go to camp July 29 -- the guy's been working extremely hard through the off-season program -- I believe in telling them as quick as possible."

The Redskins closed OTAs with a spirited session - there are no pads in these practices, mind you - in which the offense ran a two-minute drill against the defense. It was, Shanahan said, the perfect way to end things.

"Today was very indicative of what you want in OTAs," he said. "You put them in a two-minute situation and all the coaches are off the field. You want to see if guys can make plays. That was pretty encouraging when you saw the quarterback and a couple receivers come up with some big plays and actually make some big plays as well in the two-point situations."

With that, the Redskins disbanded for a week. They have three more days of work before they get a month off - and then the grind truly begins.

Question: Could Shanahan put AH92 on the physically unable to perform list if he shows up next week looking like the fat, lazy, unprepared and out-of-shape blowtard we think he may be, or does the coach need to wait for the official start of training camp next month?

"U.S.C. Receives Two-Year Ban and Loses Title"


O.J. Mayo, Reggie Bush, Pete Carroll and various institutional folk are to blame.

They, however, have all moved on--for the most part--to greener pastures while kids in the program who weren't apart of the rules infractions-poolza that went on, will suffer.

The NCAA needs to give up the antiquated notion of 'student athlete,' let a kid choose if he/she just wants to play sports with the hope of being drafted to play professionally, and give up a sanctioning/punishing system that ultimately hurts the honest player who is committed to the rules.

They'd do well to free kids to move to other programs with their scholarships intact.

Reggie Bush, meanwhile, will don a Super Bowl ring in the same year the program he left behind can't win a National Championship.

And that's a pretty low outcome for higher education.

Nate Allen
The 37th overall selection – a.ka. “The Donovan McNabb pick” – clearly impressed the coaches. He enters training camp as the top free safety on the depth chart, coach Andy Reid said in his postcamp press conference, which means the Eagles could open the season with a rookie at free safety for the second straight year. Allen [pictured right] began running with the first team after Marlin Jackson tore his Achilles last week. “He did a nice job,” Reid said, another informative revelation by the head coach. “He’s a smart kid. He’s got a nice football mind. He’s a fast learner.”

You're looking a few players light.

I'm hoping we also see Dennis Morris at FB/TE. Maybe we even say goodbye to Caveman.

Jeremy Jarmon will make the team at DE/LB

Replace Heyer with Selvish Capers?

Erik Cook could replace Rinehart or Montgomery. So could Edwin Williams.

That's why camp and preseason are gonna be fun to watch.

Brandon Banks might earn a spot as Return Specialist/WR

No need to replace Heyer w/ Selvish Capers. Heyer's a young player and a great backup tackle to use in a spot.

I think we'd ideally like to replace Hicks with either Heyer (maybe he can learn to excel in zone-blocking) or Capers.

We can do better than Heyer. His best move is helping up the QB and picking the grass off of him after the guy he was supposed to be blocking crushed him.

But...that's what preseason in a new system will sort out. Looking forward to the battles.

It is encouraging to read that Shanahan was pleased with the 2 minute drill that ended practice. I can't remember the last time the Skins actually ran a competent 2 minute offense in a real game. Maybe Furrey was making those big plays that Shanahan referenced.

I think he is out of position but being in a different position than you would like doesn't affect your ability to tackle. He obviously doesn't listen to coaches (assuming the coaches are doing what coaches do which is tell people to wrap up and take proper angles) and that, also, is a bad trait.

Baseball at least offers the possibility of suspense in innings other than the last one.

Basketball defers all suspense to the end, if there is to be any at all. And the fouls, time outs, TV time outs, out of bounds plays are a powerful narcotic.

Haha Zeke...BTW, I'm not surprised to see JC doing well. Dude can play, no matter what some up here think. I just wish he got a better situation than the one Oakland is offering.

Lame.
