I expect soon the sports media will once again trot out the stat that since 1936, when the Redskins win their last home game before the election, the incumbent party wins the White House.

Maybe this will be the year that streak ends. Maybe not. I just hope we beat Pittsburgh at home on November 3rd.

7-2 going into the bye would be sweet.

"Malcolm Kelly is not out at practice. Ladell Betts is out. "

So does this mean they are both NOT practicing? Or that Ladell IS practicing?

Posted by: Rypien11 | October 23, 2008 1:52 PM | Report abuse

I think if Kelly isn't able to play in Detroit or against Pittsburgh, they should put him on IR during the bye week and get another receiver on the roster.

With games coming up against the Boys, Eagles and Giants in the second half of the season, the Skins need all the able bodies they can get.

Nice job p1funk!

By highlighting the "So Far" part, you justified your statement. Of course, the fact that more than 50% of this years draft also haven't contributed to their team, doesn't detract from your opinion either. Right?

As I have said, it is simply too early to label, any one that does is just looking for something to B!CH about. That's all I have been trying to point out.

So 1 out of the 3 is likely done for the season, with the other 2 obviously making progress, to the point where they seem likely to contribute in the second half of the season.

Sounds like a good draft to me!

Posted by: craig2 | October 23, 2008 12:44 PM | Report abuse

Yes, well I've been highlighting the "so far" part from the very beginning. That's why I had mentioned that you should read my post.

I also never said that I think the whole draft is bad, so I don't know where that is coming from.

50% of the draft may not be contributing right now; but they not gone on IR as a result of being out of shape and failing to take their camp conditioning seriously.

Nothing would make me happier than to see Malcolm Kelly turn into the second coming of Plaxico Burress (attitude issues not included). But given the evidence up until now, the burden is squarely and heavily on his shoulders to prove to us that he can get in shape, stay healthy, learn the offense and produce numbers worthy of a 2nd rounder.

At that point, I'm comfortable saying it was a "good" pick.

Betts IS NOT practicing.

I expected Pete might take off today too, but just a Wednesday break, that dude knows what he needs to do.

You must know things that noone else knows. Zorn never said he thought Kelly wasn't taking camp conditioning seriously, and who said his knee issue is due to his conditioning?

If he goes on IR it will be because he has some type of knee injury. That wouldn't be in any way related to being "out of shape" when he entered camp.

Have you been ripping Smoot for being out of shape at the start of camp too? Ya know he was "out of shape" too. Now there is a guy we can be upset about, Smoot knows exactly what it takes to play in the pros, and his constant muscle injuries COULD be related to being out of shape at the start of camp.

Why does the washington post come up with stupid draft bust post less than 1/2 thru the first season? Answer: Lazy Reporting. We all know you do NOT judge draft classes in their first season, the most experienced GM's and most redskins fans on this blog understand it is season 2/3 that really tells the picture of boom/bust. That being said, a more appropriate question would be a very early report on the rookies this year. My NON-Hater take breaks down our draft in 3 sections, 1st section is the top of the draft, picks 34-48-51, 2nd section is the middle of the draft, picks 96-124-168, finally the end of the draft, picks 180-186-242-249.

Section 1 Picks with analysis

Devon Thomas - Disappointing put has time to turn it around in year 1

Fred Davis - Coming along strong in practice and improved work ethic has me believing he will contribute this season, verdict still undecided

Malcolm Kelly - typical hyped wr out of college, does not contribute in year 1 but has huge potential to produce in yr 2 and 3. Disappointment this year, but definately not a bust pick, not yet at least.

Middle Round Section 2-

Rinehart - playing behind the best offensive line in football now, verdict still out

Justin Tryon - all talk this year, strong potential for bust due to lack of special teams contribution

Durrant Brooks - Total Bust, already cut by the team

Bottom of Draft, Section 3:

Kareem Moore - Shows signs of being a special teams player and backup safety, verdict still out

Colt Brennan - love his attitude and upside but this is a classic position that will be judged in year 3 not year 1 or 2

Rob Jackson - HUGE upside potential but has been a limited contributor on the D-Line, injuries could lead to more playing time at the end of the year

Chris Horton - Stud pick and could be defensive ROY or NFL ROY.

Overall:

Top of the draft is TBD, not a bust or boom so far.

Middle of the draft is looking more like total bust, 1 pick is cut already and nobody is that impressed by tryon so that leaves this sections success in the hands of Rino and that wont be for another year or two before he sees the field

Bottom of the draft is where the real special players may come from and given the performace of Horton that automatically moves this group into the gem of this class and ultimately may prove to be where Vinny and the rest of the Front office excelled.

Overall, I am happy with the draft and look forward to the progress of top and bottom draft picks.

Craig2,

Let's just shoot this one in the head, dude.

You can read the statements Zorn made early on -
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2008/08/05/ST2008080503164.html

And, no, I have not been ripping Smoot for being out of shape, b/c (unlike Kelly) he's been managing to get on the field and play this season.

Posted by: p1funk | October 23, 2008 2:07 PM | Report abuse

I hear y'all with the Fred Davis talk. But Given that we had Cooley who's been durable during his career--hasn't missed a game at all, did we really have to draft Fred Davis or the TE position that early, period.

At what expense does drafting what some called "the best tight end in the draft" cost you when you have other holes or needs on your team? (D-line, OLB, O-line) If drafting a TE was a priority, why couldn't it have waited until the later rounds?

There is the confusion when it comes to drafting Fred Davis. No one thinks that we didn't necessarily need a TE, but some are wondering why use a draft pick on that position that early.

Anyway...

Some of you are always talking about 'skins t-shirts (although I'll be rockin the long sleeves from now until March). when it was being discussed I was frantically searching for a picture of Zorn to go along with the phrase "stay medium". Well it appears the blog formally known as Crowd Noise had one, and it's perfect.

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/crowdnoise/2008/04/and_the_winner_is_1.html

This picture was used as one of those photos that you attach a caption with... when the contest was held "stay medium" wasn't out there yet.

Okay on the rookies and status of the draft...many have said that the top picks should make an immediate contribution.

Doesn't this argument assume that there are major holes in the roster and that there are veterans that are playing poorly?

I'm not saying that we don't have needs, I'm just saying...ideally, the rookies have a year or two to develop before they start.

Or ideally, all the picks are like Horton. If so, here's to some really low picks next year and more Hortons.

Again, our D-line suffered two big injuries on the first day of camp. Our O line has looked pretty darn good to me this year.

I forget, are we 2-5 or 5-2? Looks like all the pieces we have in place are doing pretty good, why not add in a first round talent at TE for the future?

and I'm guessing they did their homework on Rhinehart and expect him to be a starter on the O line in a couple years.

p1funk -- Here is Zorn's quote:
"That lack of preparation could lead to their muscles breaking down so quickly, he said" from the article you pointed me to, which has nothing in it that we haven't already stated here.

Kelly isn't having issues with muscles, it's his knee. Not related to the conditioning test. And guess what? There are MANY(a very large percentage) rookies who have conditioning issues when they get to the pros.

But you are right about ONE THING.

We probably need to let this go cuz neither one of us is going to relent.

Nice back and forth though, can't wait for the next one!

Truth, not to be funny man, but I'm not following this at all.

Okay. You said that the they suffered two big injuires on the d-line the first day of camp. Yeah this is true, but Phillip Daniels is 34 or something like that. Couldn't they probably drafted his replacement? And I'm sorry Alex Buzbee most likely isn't the solution at that position, he's undersized and inexperinced.

You also speak about how well the O-line is playing and they are, but Fred Davis isn't starting--he's a back-up; which is exactly a drafted OL, DL, or OLB would've been... My whole thing is this--If TE was a need by this team (which it wasn't), then why not wait until the later rounds.

And you still don't seem concerned about the issues at OLB. Um, we need depth at this position plain and simple. if you can't see that you're just an FO apologists

I'm not a front office basher--hell I usually don't even speak on this stuff at all, but it's common sense that this team needed or could've at the least used a pick on a DL, OL, or OLB.

Is it that hard to recognize? I'M not saying any of these picks are busts... just wished they would've waited to draft a TE when you lack depth (whether it's due to personnel or overall age) and talent (DE) at other key positions--THAT'S ALL.

I'm done discussing this. Feel free to retort, but I'm done.

Doesn't make much sense. Who at D-End wasn't exactly the same that the Skins could have drafted?

All the d-linemen of KNOWN quality were long gone by the time the Skins were drafting in the first round and then again in the second round.

And I still disagree on the IDEA that one doesn't draft quality to backup quality when it's staring you right in the face in the draft.
