Official 2018 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

Watching the Ravens now since we play them next week.

RG3 still got some speed, as it's only the 2nd quarter, and he's already pulled off two 20 yard runs.

Don't know why, but I swear he looks shorter than when he was a Redskin.

I SWEAR I saw Phil Taylor playing for the Dolphins.
Dude named Taylor, also playing DT, and with a seemingly identical build as Phil, and a similar jersey number.

Turns out it's Vincent Taylor, who I wasn't familiar with.

Fairly certain it's because Baltimore played in the HOF game, so they're treating it just like a 4th preseason game, which in actuality, it is.

They rested a lot of starters.

Well yeah i suppose that makes sense. But Flacco didn’t play in the HOF game. I dont remember their starters playing that much in that game, if at all, did they?

True, Flacco didn't play in the HOF game ; he only played in the 2nd and 3rd games.

But Harbaugh also cited the fact they had 2 joint practices (Colts and Rams) for the first time in Harbaugh's tenure, plus the fact they had an extra week of Training Camp. So Flacco and other's "needed the rest"

And that's straight from the coach's mouth.

Oh i don’t doubt it, that’s a pretty good reason to rest the starters. Two joint practices, maybe Gruden should try that sometime. Might just help.

Yea I can understand the rest, but I don't agree with or understand the timing of it.

I would have given him/them the rest last week and played him this week,

Because if last week was their final preseason game, that's further away from opening day and it seems like it would be harder to carry over the momentum, chemistry, etc.

One week off in the preseason is like a bye or a nice rest period. But 2 weeks off after the final preseason game, and I wonder if the off-season rust might have a way to re-set itself ? Just a thought.

So, looks like the Chiefs' all star duo of Orlando Scandrick and David "Aint gonna stop ya" Amerson gave up 3 TDs to Chase Daniel and the entire Bears second team offense. Oof. 

 

Looking like Stephen Hawking could pull a double move on those two chumps.

The fact that David Amerson is still in the league is pretty sad....Surprised the Chefs aren't interested in Breeland.

Funny but I told my son the same thing about RG3. I told him he looked like Joe Montana rolling out and throwing and he moved his team right down the field and scored. my sons response was "do it in a regular season game against a good D and I will be impressed."

Your son is smart, and it’s foolish to ever use griffin and Montana in the same sentence.  Unless Griffin buys a ranch in Montana....

Breaking out the Stephen Hawking (may he Rest In Peace) reference. Who said this board had no intelligence?

a lot here from a Keim post on facebook

 

Some thoughts on the Washington Redskins after re-watching the game and having a few minutes to think:

 

1. Adrian Peterson certainly showed a lot of what the Redskins wanted to see. The question, long term, will be showing that for numerous weeks and not just one. He struggled in that area last season with Arizona; will it be any different in Washington? But what we saw the other night was a guy who could still escape trouble and turn it into a six- or seven-yard gain. He did not require huge holes. And he showed burst to the outside on the fourth-and-1 carry. I’ve talked to numerous people about his workout and it has now become legendary. Every player signed always has an amazing workout. So take it for what it’s worth. However, what became clear during the workout is that he was just different than the backs on their roster. After the game members of the organization, when I'd ask what they thought, would ask the same question of me. Not because I'm some expert, but I got the feeling it was almost like they wanted to confirm what they had seen.

 

2. For what it's worth: Peterson has one of the strongest hand shakes you'll ever encounter. My producer Friday night said he'd been warned about it by someone in Bristol. And quarterback Alex Smith told a story in the locker room after the game about his first time shaking Peterson's hand (at a Heisman ceremony). Also, we all know about his suspension and why it happened and that some still have problems with him. I respect that (I mentioned his suspension in the initial news stories about his signing; some readers were disappointed I'd done so. Can't help someone's past). From a national perspective, it's been discussed quite a bit and I work for a national site. There may be occasions local outlets do more on all this. Just letting you know.

 

3. The running back position will the most interesting to watch. I know how much Jay Gruden likes Rob Kelley; I don’t know that his affection is shared by all. For those comparing it to his love of Ryan Grant, keep this in mind: Grant was always a fourth receiver here and he was productive last season. Coaches can like certain guys a lot; it doesn’t mean they view them as Pro Bowlers or even starters. In Kelley’s case, it’ll come down to: Which would you rather have him or Samaje Perine? The latter was a fourth-round pick by this regime. He showed signs of development. If it comes down between the two, you’d think Perine has the edge.

 

4. After talking to multiple people, they know this overall group will be a difficult call. There’s also which one to keep between Kapri Bibbs, who is healthy, and Byron Marshall, who is not. Marshall has worked ahead of Bibbs, but if he won’t be ready for a few weeks into the season then it’s hard to keep him around. But I’d be surprised if one of them isn’t on the roster.

 

5. Another tough call this week: linebackers. They typically keep nine, but they could always try to go with 10 if there’s someone they really want to keep. They could do that if they went with, say, only 24 offensive players instead of the usual 25. It’s been done. Do they keep Pete Robertson? He’s more a pass-rush specialist and, to be honest, they’re not getting that aspect out of Ryan Anderson. Inside, after starters Mason Foster and Zach Brown, who warrants a spot? Zach Vigil has worked both inside spots; Martrell Spaight has had a good preseason; Josh Harvey-Clemons offers a unique skill set and Shaun Dion Hamilton was a draft pick. There’s a chance only two of those four players will be kept on the 53-man roster. The feeling, too, is that Hamilton would be claimed if they cut him with the intention of signing to the practice squad.

 

6. I’m also curious to see if they keep someone who can play fullback. J.P. Holtz has had some excellent blocks the last two games, including two for Peterson vs. Denver. Know this: Peterson has averaged 5.07 yards per carry in his career out of a two-back set, according to ESPN Stats & Information. It was 4.64 yards in 2015, his last big year for the Vikings. Last season, he had one carry out of a two-back set. His career mark with three-receiver sets is 4.27 yards; since 2014 it’s 3.43 yards. The Redskins love using three-receiver sets. I don’t know if Holtz, who is listed as a tight end, will make it but I do think they’ll consider keeping him or adding one after final cuts. I also know that none of the three primary tight ends would be good in that dual role ala Niles Paul.

 

7. After re-watching the Denver game, it was clear the defense was terrible, especially the secondary. That is concerning. Some of the issues can be resolved via game planning – awareness of certain routes, etc. They were burned a few times by overplaying inside routes, then having the receiver break back outside. But there seems to be a depth issue overall as well, especially at safety. And another concern was the backup offensive line. They’ll likely keep nine and maybe 10, but it’s hard to say who has stood out. Three backups appear to be locks: Ty Nsekhe, Tony Bergstrom and Geron Christian (who has struggled, but was a third-round pick they viewed as future insurance so we’ll see.). It’s another spot where I could see someone being added after final cuts if they don’t trust Tyler Catalina or Kyle Kalis or Isaiah Williams or Demetrius Rhaney.

 

8. I know a lot will be made over the lack of play time for the starters and Gruden's 0-4 mark in season openers. He's not the only coach who doesn't play his starters a lot in the preseason (Sean McVay didn't last year or this year). And it's not about how much they hit in practice (Bill Walsh's teams always had lighter practices). Good teams practice with a certain urgency and tempo -- and then play the same way. That's what I saw when the Redskins practiced vs. the Patriots several years ago. But if you're going to sit the starters a lot, you'd better be sure it doesn't translate into early struggles. They could have those anyway given some of the health issues that have limited others. But when you open with a winnable road game vs. a team with a new coach and quarterback, you'd best win. If they were opening on the road vs. the Saints, for example, a loss couldn't just be blamed on preseason approach.

Ok Redskins Twitter lets be real. Eagles turned the ball over 4 times in Cleveland. Cowboys down 14-0 to the Cardinals and neither of those TDs were offensive so...how bad did we REALLY look the other day? #HTTR https://t.co/Mkvt7YUzxJ

 

 

Bad. Let's put it this way, you take away a 33 year old RB that had been with the team for 3 days, and it's a disaster.

The offense I'm not worried about. It's clear Coach Gruden had a Peterson agenda in this game and several key offensive players sat.

 

No doubt the defense didn't look great against the Broncos. As Thinking Skins pointed out, a lot teams didn't look good.

 

We'll see if it translates into the first game of the regular season.
