Walk-through ends first two-a-day practice

The Washington Redskins completed their first day of two-a-day practices with a low-key, low-intensity walk-through.

Players rarely needed to do more than a jog lightly during the session as the offense and defense worked through shadow drills on separate fields. They came together only for some special teams work. The practice lasted about an hour.

After the practice, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth worked with defensive line coach Jacob Burney on a side field.

gtown85 is clearly a bureaucrat; an official who works by fixed routine without exercising intelligent judgment.

gtown85, why can't you distinguish Alberts situation from the other Players?

Albert wanted to be different.
Albert wanted to work out by himself. Albert skipped mandatory offseason workouts...oh but he should be treated the same way as his teammates? Give me a break.

Here gtown85. This will be a two-part exercise to test your ability to distinguish different situations and maybe just maybe you'll stop viewing every thing in black and white.

Part One is true or false:

There is a difference between pre-meditated murder and killing in self-defense?

Part Two

Below is a quotation followed by three samples, one of which inadvertantly plagiarizes. See if you can identify what each sample is (a paraphrase or a summary), and see if you can "catch" the one that inadvertently plagiarizes.
Quotation:

"Empire State College has a policy describing the conditions under which students may be warned or withdrawn from the College for such unethical academic behavior as plagiarism, forgery, misrepresentation, or other dishonest or deceptive acts which constitute grounds for warning or administrative withdrawal"

Samples:

1. The Student Handbook states that the College may dismiss students who in any way present others' work as their own.

2. According to policy in the Student Handbook, Empire State College may take punitive action (including dismissal) against students who act fraudulently. Fraudulent action includes using the words or ideas of others without proper attribution, falsifying documents, or depicting the words of others as one's own

3. The Student Handbook states that the College has a policy that describes the different instances under which students may be withdrawn from the College. These instances include plagiarism, forgery, misrepresentation, and other instances that show dishonest or deceptive practice


Answers.

Part One = true

Part Two = Number 1 is the summary; it has condensed the source and articulates the main idea. Number 2 is an appropriate paraphrase. The writer has used her own words and sentence structure to relate the essence of the source. Number 3 is a paraphrase that inadvertently plagiarizes because it retains too much of the source's language and sentence structure.

"He'll pass the test," Shanahan said. "He's just going to have to be in a little bit better shape. I don't know when he's going to pass it. But he's going to work extremely hard... He was on the treadmill this morning and hopefully, in the near future, he'll be ready to practice some football."

I was in one of the trees just outside the fenced in area of RP with my scope and saw what happened. AH had a timing device in his hand and he slowed down at the end so he would fail the test by a second. Can you say "Mexican Standoff"?

Shanahan is going to reward Haynesworth and lift the team's spirit by giving Albert some carries on short yardage/goal line packages. All will be well in Redskinland after Haynesworth scores a touchdown.

McDaniels gives Tebow grief for Jockey deal

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on July 30, 2010 9:18 PM ET

Tim Tebow expected some jokes about his recent decision to become an underwear model, but he probably didn't think his coach would be the first to get on his case.

"I told him they passed me over for him. I turned it down," McDaniels said, via the Denver Post.

Tebow's response: "I just wondered if he was a boxer or a brief guy."

Interesting direction to take things, Tim. This is about to get awkward.

"It depends on the day," McDaniels said, when asked a brave followup.

Yeah, it's only a matter of time before we get another hearty postgame man hug from these two.

I'm indifferent when it comes to same sex marriage (you know whateves makes you happy) but I wonder if Tebow knows that "God hates Fags."

Man, I am tired about talking Haynesworth. I think lost in all of this crapola is the fact that our young wide recievers are down the depth chart and a guy who couldn't even make a football team last year is ahead of them. MK and DT should be ashamed.

So Shanny went on record saying Albert can't practice because he's not in shape until he passes the test ... and the reason he's not allowed to practice ... is to protect him from getting hurt.

I'll buy this if .... Albert is included in the afternoon 'jog thru'. Because he's definitely in good enough shape for that. Plus, it will help him get caught up on schemes.

Otherwise, I'm not buying what Shanahan is saying.

4. Will a Rabbit be there? (She is a devout Methodist, he's a Jew.)

===============================
I'm not familiar with mixed marriages, do they eat the rabbit or just pet it?

Is it a cute white rabbit or will any color do?

Is it one of those floppy ear rabbits?

Long hair or short?

Hopefully we can get answers to all these important Rabbit questions

I want to make a point... i've been gone for awhile, just came back... haven't read anything about haynesworth, so I'm sorry if im repeating something.... BUT


Let us break down this test... please
He is being asked, to run 300 yards... broken up into 6- 50 yard sprints essentially... He has to run 25 yards... turn, run another 25 yards, turn, run another 25 yards, turn... so on and so on until he gets to 300 total yards....

Breaking this down... into terms EVERYONE can understand... Let us say that it takes him 6 seconds to run 40 yards, which for an NFL athlete is RETARDEDLY slow...... (I know this isn't how its broken up but it makes the numbers easy...) that means he runs 10 yards in 1.5 seconds... meaning he runs 25 yards in 3.75 seconds (1.5+1.5+.75... for those too slow to figure this out)

SO, 25 yards in 3.75 seconds... now 300/25= 12. Thus 12*3.75... would tell us how long it would take for him to run 300 yards right?... Thats 45 seconds... Meaning he has an extra 25 seconds to spare... add in fatigue.. he is fat... and time to turn after each 25 yards... lets be generous and say that takes 15 seconds... he should be able to make this in 60 seconds... and thats if he is the slowest MF in the entire league... 6 second 40... I'm sorry the man is a fat Fu^k and I am tired of his BS...

Posted by: peoplearestupid1 | July 31, 2010 12:58 AM | Report abuse

Im 23... 155 pounds... I know I am not 300 pounds, but i am also not an nfl athlete... and I can run a 40 in about 5.5. I am ridiculously out of shape... as i sit in an office all day and do nothing but drink beer when im home and yet i can do this test. IT is pathetic that a professional athlete cannot... 320 or not. 3.5 minutes of rest is more than enough. He should be able to do this with 2 minutes rest...

(I'm just waiting for someone to try to explain to me how I am wrong... because the numbers don't lie... how is this defensible? I'm pretty sure 2/3 of the people out there can do this... it really is not that hard of a test... 6 seconds for a 40 is stupid slow... Rich Eisen ran it in 6.4 something... and EVEN THAT means that he could finish this drill in plenty of time.) FOr this to take 70 seconds you have to run a 9.32 40. 9.32 seconds to RUN 40 YARDS.... I can almost walk 40 yards in 9 seconds... pathetic... fat as@ fu$k... what a pos. Honestly, I'd be ok if we just cut him... terrible attitude, terrible work ethic... cancer... prick... not worth a pos.

So I talked to one of my co-coaches in the 7-9 yo Anklebiters League about AH's conditioning test. He played DB in college and failed the test twice as a freshman. He said many of the big boy lineman on his team NEVER passed the test. In most cases, though, teams can't afford to keep players out of practice in order to pass the conditioning test. The players need the reps. So, yeah, Shanahan is definitely effing with Albert to prove a point.

Most players pass the first part of the test with relative ease. The problem is the legs get all wobbly during the second leg. No matter how "in shape" players are, the body never gets completely comfortable with the test. As for my co-coach, the next season, the team gave him conditioning drills for the next season leading up to the test. He said he can't imagine passing it without building up with conditioning tailored specifically to the test over SEVERAL WEEKS. In the NFL, those several weeks are built into the OTA's. You know, those "voluntary" team activities that Haynesworth missed while he was spending his $21 mil on boats and ho's. At this point, I hope Shanahan takes a few liberties with the stopwatch and gets Albert into practice. Point proven, Shanny. You da p!mp. Haynesworth is no longer the enemy. Dallas is.

Rather than change the post verbiage from “ghost” to “stank” in the interest of accuracy, wouldn’t be better for all if we changed Vinny’s status to make the original post more accurate? I offer up speeding him off this worldly plane and on to the big Six Flags Theme Park in the sky by pelting him with 175 Million racquet balls- one for every dollar of Redskins Salary Cap he wasted on Archuleta, BLloyd, Jeff George, Jeremiah Trotter and the most horrifying sight I’ve ever seen in Burgundy and Gold- Neon Deion.

This also implies that you would run the 12th 25 as fast as the 1st 25. That may be the case for a 440 sprinter, but not for a 330# DL. Rather than pontificate, peoplearestupid should go out to a football field and time himself. Forget the theory. Just run it twice and report back to us.
