On the Field for Afternoon Practice – 8/12

  • Practice II: The Offense Strikes Back, seemed like. In shorts and shells only, the first team offense looked very sharp again, Jason Campbell connecting on just about every route you can think of. On the other hand, I imagine that everyone on the defense was tired out from all the chatter this morning, so maybe that made it easier for them.
  • I feel like I’ve mentioned this in my last three practice updates, but Devin Thomas is really impressing me in his return from this injury. He’s practicing hard, running hard after the catch, making foot-tapping catches along the sidelines … he really looks like what Scott Campbell described him as — “A talented athlete with the potential to be a superstar at wide receiver.”
  • Fred Smoot looked strong covering the run in practice, although he was definitely muted as compared to this morning.
  • Field goal drills were interesting — it certainly looked like Suisham was kicking the ball with more confidence when Derrick Frost was holding. For sure his worst miss came with Durant Brooks doing the holding duties, and the kick looked like something went very much wrong with it. This ends today’s punter battle update.
  • Interesting to see Coach Zorn enthusiastically demonstrating something to Chris Cooley on the side. “Just talking about some routes,” Coach said after practice, but it was impressive to see the level of detail he appeared to be going into.

  1. I think you are doing a great job. I live in Arkansas and I’m the only Redskins fan here I know.
    This is cowboy country. I’ve really appreciated your reporting.
    That being said, I have a question for Scott Campbell if you get the opportunity again. Does he scout much down here?
    I’m a Hogs fan (I get a two-fer for that one) so I’m very proud of Matteral Richardson (and embarrassed about Petrino and Matt Jones). I love to see our home talent make it to the NFL.

  2. Why no mention of Jason Taylor’s status? Don’t say Larry Michaels has the lowdown. He overlooked the story too. What, you guys don’t think JT’s bad wheels situation won’t get out if the Redskins Fanzine doesn’t report it?

    THE biggest story at Redskin Park is that Vinny’s Folly is hurt–with an injury that may have been caused by, or exascerbated by his Dancing with the Stars Stunt.

  3. Hmmm, I wonder if one vet is helping another vet look good at the expense of the rookie?

  4. This just in: Danny Snyder is still short.
