Redskins Minicamp: the Good and the Bad

Malcolm Kelly MinicampJokes aside, there’s some actual NFL action going on this weekend and it’s time to comment about it. We’ve got our first glimpse of our 2008 Washington Redskins

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.

    He was sleeping lol Another great USC offensive player lol TY for letting DeSean Jackson go to the Iggles. :-)

    Oh yeah Ian. Like we would ever touch DeSean Jackson with a 10 foot pole.  We don’t need another tiny speedy person. We already have two of those.

    tdcowboy.. are you laughing beacause we have a superfast safety or beacause cowboys fans think it is better to have a mexican vacation with daisy duke than to win a playoff game?

  • Redskins Guy

    I think he’s laughing because *HE* was the idiot roommate who kept Fred Davis all night. J’accuse!!!
