Redskins' captains hope they can help right the ship

Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. -- On a wall near the Washington Redskins' locker room hangs a huge photo of the team's six captains. They make up an imposing, handsome group, decked out in their best suits and ties.

For the most part, the all-dressed-up haven't had much to do. These were the no-drama Redskins. Asked one month ago what impact he and other captains were having this season, OT Chris Samuels replied: "a schedule change here or there, nothing major."

This week, those guys are earning their keep. A 1-4 skid prompted the captains to call a players-only meeting Wednesday morning, and the team-wide angst was compounded when RB Clinton Portis took some potshots at coach Jim Zorn on a radio show.

"I guess you can say that we're trying to earn our money," KR Rock Cartwright, one of the captains, said with a chuckle Thursday. "Guys come to us when we have problems, and we bring it to the coach, but this is the first time we've really had to call anything like this."
