Seems pretty unanimous for Marko; I think he's earned it.

And this team continues its dominance over the 2004-2007 NFL seasons. Over the hill gang pt 2 is getting a bit ridiculous.

Keep Marko and Austin.

But with Austin filling the need as a return specialist, I can easily see Marko as the odd man out.

Would like to see the opening day wide receiving corps consist of Moss (slot), Kelly, Thomas, Mitchell, and Austin.

You can work with those 5, with a QB like McNabb and upgrades (which they're making) on the offensive line.

Come on, guys. Stop overreacting to every single announcement. Think about it....in training camp, would you rather test your young players (CBs, safeties, etc) against receivers and tight ends who, when camp is over, will likely end up working regular jobs like us? Or would you rather test your young players against experienced vets who know the game.

Signing vets like Galloway allows Shanahan and the other coaches to REALLY evaluate the level of talent they've amassed.

If they keep this up, they're going to "upfront money guaranteed" themselves right into debt and eventually go the way of the USFL..."


So who's the blame for this attitude from the player?

The agent?

The owners?

The league as countless college football boys watch the draft every spring thinking "Hit the lottery!!" while fanbases argue about need and busts and best player availiable?

I'd say all of the above.

The owners and players union should follow the NBA's lead an establish a solid rookie pay scale and method by which 3-4 year vets can get re-upped and make nice coin.

It's like what Prop Joe says (in summary) in "The Wire": "We can all get paid if we work this thing together..."

They are bringing in tons of guys to look at in these minicamps, if they don't like what the see they are gone cost the team nothing.

Marko was starting to earn playing time last season, and that for a coach that hated playing rookies on the offensive side of the ball. I don't see him as a flash-in-the-pan preseason guy. I think he wins his spot on the team, and is fighting between the #3 and #2 roles by year's end.

Gardner a Redskin again
Michael David Smith
April 29, 2010, 11:10
Former Redskins first round pick Rod Gardner, is attempting to revive his career after flaming out with the Redskins, and then briefly with the Kansas City Chiefs. Gardner who was drafted in the first round, had 1 season in which he went over 1000 yards receiving, was known more as struggling with immaturity, than anything else.

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | April 29, 2010 11:11 AM

Not funny Greg...that's still raw. We need a couple more years before we can actually laugh at that.

I'll tell you what IS funny...the time Gardner got his car stolen and it was left in front of FedEx Field with no wheels on it. Sort of poetic justice for a guy who routinely took a pass on film study for the D.C. nightlife...

Seriously.

Except for Terrence Austin, NONE of these guys are "Shanny" guys where he's made some kind of legit investment in them.

I don't see Shanny as the type who is going to force snaps onto DT or MK just because they were high picks under someone else's regime.

Those guys will be playing for their spots on the roster like everyone else.

If there really is a true-blue competition for spots and PT, then I'm looking forward to seeing Marko Mitchell shoot straight up the depth chart. From all accounts and witnesses, he was KILLING it last year in camps and practices, but obviously had to take a back seat while coaches/FO played favoritism with the other guys.

Posted by: Chia_Pet | April 29, 2010 11:33 AM | Report abuse

If Austin makes the team as a return guy and back-up, it means Marko was beaten out by a new WR who has not been signed yet.

Since Marko has good potential, that means the new guy has to be pretty good.

They already are addressing it. They've had talks and exchanged proposals. It's bascially the only thing that the Owners and Players largely agree on.

I think the basic deal is this: The Players are going to agree to a rookie pay-scale, and in return the owners are going to increase their contributions toward retired player pensions/health-care.

"Is T.O. the NFL's version of Barry Bonds?"


Nothing like a well-intentioned rhetorical question.

Terrell Owens is a marvolous football talent.

Yet he has burnt bridges that might normally re-connect him back into the graces of the league's wide receiver needy teams.

Think about this: would it not have been much cheaper for the fins to bring T.O. to Dade County and hold on to the picks and money they shelled out for B Marshall?

Had things worked out right in Dallas, Dez Bryant isn't a cowboy.

And now, a team like the redskins thinks to tryout every wide receiver it can find but the best availiable free agent one there is, Terrel Owens.

Why?: 'cuz when you burn bridges, you not only can't go back.

You also can't move forward.

Moe, that's the problem with small market teams vs. Rich owners. The rich guys don't want a "Co-Op". Rich guys aren't into "share and share alike".

Agree with others with the thought that Marko can be a beast for real, isn't this just his second season? At times last year I was more optimistic about that guy than Kelly or Thomas, and yeah, sometimes Moss.

Not sure if that spoke to his potential or the state of the WRs last year.

Sam Bradford pays homage to Troy Aikman
Posted by Mike Florio on April 29, 2010 11:05 AM ET
Several days ago, Darren Rovell of CNBC listed the numbers that some of the new rookies would be wearing in 2010.

Much of the discussion focused on Tim Tebow, the 25th pick who will wear No. 15 despite holding up a jersey showing No. 10 at his introductory press conference.

Lost in the shuffle was the fact that Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has changed from No. 14 in college to No. 8 at the NFL level. The reason, per USA Today, comes from Bradford's desire to honor another former Oklahoma quarterback, who later transferred to UCLA. Troy Aikman, who became a Hall of Famer with the Cowboys, also wore No. 8.

Meanwhile, Steve Young finds the development to be an ironic juxtaposition of eventualities, and he's tempted to be chagrined by the laissez faire process of numerical selection.

I'm gonna keep my eye on Keiland Williams as a RB prospect. I've read that he's one of the most physically gifted runners LSU has ever had.

The question is whether he was overlooked because he shared the backfield with another gifted running back (Scott) or because he just couldn't translate that talent to the field.

Either way, if anybody can't the most out of an underrated RB, its Shanahan, so it should be interesting to watch.

Gotta question.

Say at the end of camp, you have to cut one of the following backs:

K Williams

W Parker

L Johnson


Your thinking is that the third back must also be a solid special teamer.

Who's the odd man out?

L Johnson, of course.

Parker/Portis is your running back tandem.

"But with Austin filling the need as a return specialist, I can easily see Marko as the odd man out."

Before we elect this kid to the HOF, let's remember he recently lost a weigh-in contest to Urkle.

I think all this anti-Obama, Tea Party stuff will be the undoing of the Republican Party as just being against a guy and not ideas never helps in the long run.

The trick is to stand back, let the Dems built a record, then run against the outcome of their actions.

Otherwise, you look like organized obstruction.

This morning I went to sign my Dogs up for Welfare.

At first the lady said, "Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare".
So I explained to her that my Dogs are mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can't speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddys are. They expect me to feed them, provide them with housing and medical care, and feel guilty because they are dogs.

So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify.

My Dogs get their first checks Friday.

John Clayton

So who are this year's surprise teams?

1. Washington Redskins: It's not the schedule that makes the Redskins the biggest surprise team for 2010. It's the quarterback. In the tradition of franchise quarterback acquisitions, Donovan McNabb should add five to six points to an anemic offense that averaged 16.6 points a game for the past two years. His impact should be best seen in division games. The Redskins were 0-6 in NFC East games last season and haven't had a winning record in divisional games since 2005. Last year's fourth-place finish gives the Redskins a break in the sense that they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and St. Louis Rams, two of the three worst teams in 2009.

Each year, a McNabb-like quarterback move usually results in a team making a three- to four-game jump. McNair had the seven-game jump in 2006. Jeff Garcia took advantage of an easy schedule to lead Tampa Bay to the playoffs in 2007. In 2008, Jake Delhomme came back from injury to lead the Panthers to a 12-4 record. In 2009, Brett Favre added more than five points a game to the Vikings' offense and the team went 12-4. With McNabb and the league's sixth-easiest non-division schedule (a .436 slate), the Redskins could go from 4-12 to 9-7 or better.

I'm not saying NFL execs and team front offices have to bow down and kiss a prospect's ring, but I don't think it's too much to ask to show a little respect when asking personal questions.

"Is your mother a prostitute?" My answer would've been in the form of a question along the lines of: 'No, but is your daughter?'

Hey, Bryant can ask those questions if he like to. It'll let him know the kind of people Jeff Ireland an co. are, right?

And context doesn't matter, 4th. I'll give you two possible examples of "context":

Ireland: So, Dez, do you like soliciting prostitutes?

Bryant: No, but I have before when I was 18. Can't say that have been with one lately.

Ireland: Well, it's been reported that you're mother served time in jail or drug trafficking. Is that true.?

Bryant: Yeah. She did when I was younger.

Ireland: Well prostitution and drugs are closely associated with each other, is your mother a prostitute?

Scenario B

Ireland: Hey Dez, are you familiar with the specifics of 'X', 'Y', and 'Z' when it comes to receivers?

Bryant: Yes, you mean the Split End 'X', the Flanker 'Z', and the slot 'Y'.

Ireland: Yes. That's it!

Ireland: Which more are you comfortable with?

Bryant: Probably the spilt end.

Ireland: Speaking of split ends, is your mother a prostitute?


You see, anyway you try and spin it, it's still inappropiate.

Sorry, dude, it ain't a win-win situation. If they "donate" $10.0 million towards education every year then thats $10.0 million per year less the state contributes.
