Doug Dutch: Ravens' practice tougher than Redskins'

Former Redskins cornerback Doug Dutch, traded to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, quickly noticed a difference in how hard the teams practice.

"Practice here is a lot more hard," Dutch recently told the Baltimore Sun. "It's a lot bigger and tougher grind."

In his first training camp with the Redskins, Coach Mike Shanahan has pushed the team during the morning sessions. But the Redskins do not practice in full pads and the afternoon session is only a jog-through.

The Ravens acquired Dutch in exchange for quarterback John Beck.

"Learning the Redskins' new defense is very similar to the Ravens'," Dutch said. "It's just a lot easier transition coming from that 3-4 into this new 3-4."

Harbaugh is known for a tough camp, and a tough practice schedule during the season, which is partly why some veterans avoid Baltimore. Somebody once asked Bill Walsh why FAs were so eager to sign with SF. His answer: because they didn't do any hitting in practice. Walsh's idea was that if they didn't know how to hit people by this point, they were never going to learn.

Here's my question: do you believe that any GM traded John Beck for Doug Dutch? Whatever you think of Beck as a QB, you can't think more of Doug Dutch.

OK JR, thanks for an update from Ravens camp, now how about an update on Skins camp other than AH?

Dude, don't you know? WaPo has started a competition amongst it's sports writers. Whoever has the most articles/blog posts about AH come Sept. 12th gets to write AH's biography. And I mean, come on, that's every DC sports writer's dream right now.

I agree Samson. Ravens apparently are really hurting for corner's and ST's.

Might be interesting hear a little about Haynesworth. Haven't heard a word about him since traning camp started. Get on it, Reid!

Daniels thinks Haynesworth regrets offseason
By: John Keim
Examiner Staff Writer
08/06/10 5:02 PM EDT
Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels has an idea of what Albert Haynesworth might have done differently in the offseason: show up to Redskins Park. Haynesworth, of course, did not and therefore had to pass the conditioning test. And that led to the sore knee, which has led to other issues.
“I think he regrets it,” said Daniels, who speaks often with Haynesworth. “Albert is a prideful man. I know it bothers him, with everyone making fun of him. He does laugh about it sometimes. It’s funny sometimes – [Mike] Golic’s run was funny [on ESPN]. But you can tell he’s in some kind of shape, especially compared to last year. It bothers him a little, but he’s not letting it get to him. He knows what kind of player he is.”
Daniels was among those who spoke out about Haynesworth’s absence in the spring. But, Daniels said, he told Haynesworth what he told the media: when you’re 4-12, you don’t negotiate, you just show up.
But now the real issue is getting Haynesworth healthy enough to pass the test.
“He’s always had the knee or an ailing problem,” Daniels said. “He had some things last year. I had the pleasure of riding with his mom to the hotel yesterday and she said he always had problems with his knee. I really feel like it bothers him, but at the same time I think once he passes the test and gets on the field to play, he can erase all the things said about him that were negative….We need him on the field.”
Not that every player is worried about the situation. As one offensive player said, “I don’t give a [expletive]. I’m just worried about my job.”

It makes sense. The Ravens typically like bring in younger guys through the draft and stockpiling talent that way. Since the players have less miles on them it's easier for the team to work them hard during practice.

Shanahan and Allen on the other hand seem to favor veterans and with all the veterans in camp it's not a surprise that they're taking it easy. These guys already know how to play football, it's just a matter of getting everyone to know their assignments.

Both styles are catered to each teams roster.

Besides after seeing how the Bronco's are dropping like flies I'm happy that we're taking it easy.

A little harder covering Bolden than the skins wr's?

Posted by: skinswest | August 6, 2010 6:12 PM | Report abuse

The real reason JR keeps writing AH articles is the national coverage. AH updates are about the last thing skins fans want to hear, but other football fans are interested AH, not how, say, the linebacker corp is looking. It a shame, the post should be for us and not to get pub for WaPo; but I've must have heard WaPo credited a dozen times over the last few weeks by ESPN & NFL Network.

Who gives a damn about the Cleveland Ravens or what Doug Holland thinks about practice or Ossie Oldcome and John Harbutt. This is Skins country, Shanahan territory. Don't mess with us.

That's probably the reason why the Redskins have been healthy through camp & the Ravens have multiple guys on IR already.
