Roger Goodell's visit leaves some Redskins feeling frustrated

Some Redskins players expressed frustration Thursday about their meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell at Redskins Park.

As part of his training camp tour, Goodell met with players Wednesday at the complex to discuss the upcoming season. He encouraged players to ask questions about the negotiations between owners and the players' union on a new collective bargaining agreement, and that's where things broke down. Instead of offering insight into the negotiation process, players said, Goodell seemed evasive.

"He's walking around kissing babies, you know, shaking hands, and he just wants to say that the owners are over here, the players are over here and I'm in the middle, I'm for the game," top cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "But to ask him a question about anything, he couldn't answer.

"He couldn't answer this, go check with this, go ask these people, I don't really know. It was a waste of time. We sat there and shot questions at him for 45 minutes, and pushed meetings back and had to be here longer for nothing. A total waste of time."

Players hoped Goodell would provide specifics about the main issues that have prompted many NFL observers to believe that a lockout, for at least part of the 2011 season, is unavoidable. They left the room with little optimism about the labor situation.

"We just wanted more answers to the questions that we had and he really didn't have 'em," said inside linebacker London Fletcher, the Redskins' player representative. "Obviously, some of 'em he didn't even feel like he could answer 'em as part of the negotiations, so to speak. Guys want to hear straight from him as far as what's true and what's not true. Let's not read about it in the media. Let's not have the information come from a second source and things like that.

"We had him here. And he opened up the ability for us to ask him questions. If you open up that ability then you have to be prepared to answer our questions. Certain things, he said, were part of the negotiations. But again, he was the one who opened up the possibility for us to ask him questions. When he did that, and guys had some real questions that we wanted hard answers to, not the typical questions, he didn't really answer. He didn't give us sound answers on a lot of the issues."

according to who....are you basing that on what Jim Zorn said?? Really....the guy who wanted routes run 'perfectly'.....

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | August 5, 2010 3:47 P

Just about everyone. Malcolm has said it himself. Keenan Mcardell says he needs to work on his routes. It's no secret, improving on his routes is what Malcolm HAS to do if he wants to realize on his potential.

CARRY OVER

I understand that Kelly hasn't stayed healthy, butI don't see the logic behind cutting the kid... yet. Lets see how he does when he gets healthy. I really think the last coaching staff misused MK. Lets see how things work out for him and what the Shanny Boys think.

Ps, Am I the only one who remembers a RI post a few months back about Kelly meeting the Shanahans? Something about how they see him fitting in as a major cog in the O? Big time possession receiver or something of that nature? Based on that alone, I wouldn't count on him being cut...

I hope that "some Redskins" means players other than D-Hall shared this frustration because if I were a player I wouldn't exactly choose him to speak for all the players. We should have all realized by now that DeAngelo loves to give his opinion.

will make this prediction publically for the fifth time; Kelley will make the team and will start within the first four games. My rationale for this is good coaching+excellent hands+size+motivation (pressure from team)= production from a receiver.

------------------------------------------
Have you even watched Kelly play? He has great hands, but he cannot get open because he cannot run a route and has no speed. A quarterback wouldn't throw to him in traffic because he doesn't know how to use that big body to out-muscle defenders for the ball. On top of that, he is injury-prone.

And yes, a player can help being injured sometimes. Hamstring injuries are linked to improper stretching and inadequate hydration. These are things within MK's control. This guy is a bust. This is his last preseason with the team and possibly in the NFL. It has nothing to do with Vinny drafting him. I think Vinny did okay with DT and FD, but he missed on this one.

Apples and oranges.

Fred Davis was stuck behind a Pro Bowl starter. Once the opportunity came for him to get on the field he seized it.

Malcolm Kelly was basically forced into the lineup. They were practically begging him to make plays and retain the opportunity to get regular PT and rolling out the opportunities for him (or DT) to win a starting spot. He just didn't get it done.

Was it Zorn? Was it Campbell? Was it play-calling? Who knows...maybe it was just Kelly. We'll see.

I've got to side with Hall on this one. Why does the Commish ask for an audience if he doesn't plan to have good answers for some tough questions? Did he think they wouldn't be itnerested? It smells of aloofness. It sends the message that the Commish isn't listening - doesn't need to listen. I think this was poorly played by Goodell and for once I am with Hall.

Posted by: monkeymayonaise | August 5, 2010 3:34 PM
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If he does, it'll be against big odds.

Injury History
- injured before being drafted
- injured since being a Redskin
- injured again

Draft Status
- not drafted by this coaching staff or front office, no history/loyalty

Onfield Skills
- reportedly a poor route runner
- slow 40 time for a receiver
- has size, but doesn't use it advantageously

Competition
- stacked against some talented veterans who seem to be showing fresh legs, good spirit, and useful veteran knowledge. Santana Moss & Devin Thomas may be lock ins, and Terrance Austin, too, because of his special teams potential. That leaves 2 spots to go to 2 guys from a list of talent. Right now, Kelly isn't able to show anything he's got, he's falling behind on the learning curve both mentally and physically, and he's not getting into proper football shape.

All I can say is that he better make a miraculous recovery quickly and then play like a Jerry Rice/Art Monk/Michael Irvin type of receiver each and every day in the short time he'll have to impress the coaches enough.

I don't know...maybe he's good at PR. He stops by the coaches' offices to say hi and let them know he's still there and how hard he just worked out. He can't wait to get out there and help the team win big this year! He leaves them all with a couple of good jokes to keep 'em laughing.

We'll see. Odds are against him, though.

How is it when you eat corn, you chew it all up - you chew it into tiny little pieces. Then when you dump a load, you look down, and there are whole kernels in your scat. Why's that? Did my body put them back together? Is there something like a universal corn constant that I just cannot get my head around?

Yes skinhead I have watched him play. I also watched ed mccaffrey play too. 6'5" ed mccaffrey had good hands but wasn't fast and took some time to develop (started 4 games in his first 5 seasons)on teams with much better passing attacks than the redskins. Shanny has mentioned using kelley like mccaffrey.

Instead of relying on making comparisons of who kelley is like though, I just have to admit their are too many factors to calculate to make a water-tight case. Therefore, I am just relying on the argument that it is impossible for me or anyone who isn't an expert to call kelley a bust when all of the factors I can observe say he is no less a bust than when we drafted him. People are p'ssed because they are fed-up with under performers...not because they know anything about kelley, what shanny is doing, or how zorn's doomed offense may or may not have made effective use of mk.

I think things were misconscrewed. Goody wants the players to ask questions and raise issues with their union so thst the union fairly represents their concerns when there is bargaining with the owners over the new CBA. Goody himself is sort of a bystander to the process. He can't speak for the owners - they have their own negotiating team in place that represents their concerns. The two sides will attempt to negotiate a new CBA but the chances of avoiding a lockout by the owners don't look too Goody at this point.

If this is what is expected out of a mid 2nd rounder, no wonder everyone is so down of Kelly.

I watched him play a lot at OU and I still think he can be a good possession receiver. As guy who coaches and played some ball, I had some concerns with the route combinations that Zorn liked to use. Once I got a chance to see more games in person early last season, I feel even more strongly that Zorn's offense usually called for only 2 players to run routes as an option, while the other receivers were usually decoys or running "pick" routes. Trust me when I say that there were many occasions where looking for a third option rather than dumping it to a back would have meant throwing to a guy who not only did not expect to get thrown to, but most likely had already completed his route and was standing still. At times, it looked like Marty's old offense.

It also meant that precision was emphasized much more than athletisism, which just highlighted DT and MK's weaknesses rather than working w/what they can do, as many teams do with young receivers (see NY Giants).

If he fails to show something, he should be cut. But, I for one, will not be passing judgement until at least 1 month from now.
