The Redskins Insider at the Washington Post does a great job of capturing some of the feel of this weekend that I’m going to send you to them to read about it. Some highlights include…
- Jim Zorn seems to have reasonable control over the team. I like what little I see and the players (with one exception, see below) seem to respect and believe in him.
- Fred Davis missed practice today and the Redskins didn’t know where he was for several hours. There’s some reference to the fact that he was out late the night before. You’re not making a good impression on a fan base that was already baffled by your presence here in Washington DC, Fred.
- LaRon Landry made a good play to catch Clinton Portis from behind. They started jawing at each other and eventually had a race to see who was faster. It was close, but by most accounts Landry won. The thing I like about this is that it seems to be a major departure from the 2007 Clinton Portis who didn’t want to practice at all during the pre-season. It seems like a different atmosphere. It’s easy to be positive in May so this doesn’t say too much, but the fact that everyone is being competitive and enthusiastic is great.
