Quarterback Colt McCoy Feels Ready to Step Up for Washington Redskins

There is a high likelihood of backup quarterback Colt McCoy becoming one of the most valuable members of the Washington Redskins offense. It is public knowledge that there have been justified talks about the critical roles of slot man Jamison Crowder and quarterback Terrelle Pryor Sr. who is now a wide receiver. However, Colt McCoy whom is playing in his 8th season is one play shy of having the fortunes of the Redskins in his hands. Such possibilities are likely to influence the updated Washington Redskins betting odds for week one.

This is a fact not only this year but also come next season.

Starter Kirk Cousins marks his second season as the franchise player of the team. This means that Kirk will be a free agent at the end of the season, three years straight he has been a free agent; except next year it will cost 35 million for the tag. This gives McCoy an even higher probability of featuring in any future plans.

McCoy mentioned that he felt good and that he was having one of the best camps he can remember. He was born in Texas and will be having his 31st birthday in September. McCoy added that he was very comfortable with the place and state that they were in as a team considering that they were in camp.

McCoy did not display a luster performance in the Washington Redskins’ 23-3 loss to the equally good Baltimore team, a match that was played as a preseason opener. He went for 6 for 13 for 40 yards and this was with an interception. Nonetheless, Colt has been exemplary in the 2-minute long drills that the team had in Richmond where they spent a whole 3 weeks.

The Washington Redskins’ camp came to an end on Monday and are set to resume their workouts today at their Ashburn home.

McCoy is aware that he is not a threat to Kirk Cousins who is going to earn $23.94 million. For Kirk will become the very first quarterback to successfully play under the franchise tag for two years straight. Similarly, McCoy is just one play shy of being called on by the team to produce. It will be very interesting to watch how this scenario unfolds this year and even in the future.

McCoy said that he was very confident and ready to come off the bench and deliver for his team. Colt went on to say that he is confident in his ability to aid Cousins in being one of the best players this year and is his main focus. McCoy is not very keen on what happens afterwards.

Colt said that he felt very blessed to be going into his eight season, this being his 3rd year in Washington. He feels that every part of his being is exactly where it is supposed to be and that he is indeed at the right place.

The loss of Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson to free agency have put the Washington Redskins in motion to rebuild their receiving corps. In any case, Crowder and Pryor who are their best targets figure to incorporate injured tight end Jordan Reed. Jordan has missed the entire camp owing to an injury.

Pryor is the only one who is now healthy, this makes a learning opportunity for the young players and the veteran.

McCoy said that there he had no time to worry about next year yet the current season is still ongoing.

He added that the current moment is his focus and he is looking forward to enjoying his camp while trying to make guys around him improve their game.

Redskins Preparing for Season Now that Training Camp is Over

The Washington Redskins ended training camp on Sunday, and have now turned their full attention to getting ready for preseason games as the season opener fast approaches. If you want to bet on Washington this season, check out the Redskins betting lines to win.

After closing camp, head coach Jay Gruden said he felt the team had a very good camp and he is excited to see how it translates on the field. Gruden said they got to evaluate a lot of talent and they will continue doing so until the end of the preseason when they have to make their final cuts.

A few Washington players suffered injuries during camp, which means the team will have to evaluate more players to figure out which ones can fill in for their injured players on a temporary basis. Players like DeAngelo Hall, Sua Cravens, Josh Doctson, and Jamison Crowder are expected to be kept out of preseason games to give them time to recover from their injuries.

DeAngelo Hall Mentoring Rookie Holsey

The Washington Redskins drafted Josh Holsey in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, hoping he can help improve their secondary. After he was drafted, Holsey’s cornerbacks coach with the Auburn Tigers, placed a call to his former Atlanta Falcons teammate DeAngelo Hall, asking him to take care of the rookie. If you want to bet on the Redskins or other NFL games, check out the best NFL lines thanks to years of experience in the sports betting industry.

While speaking with the Redskins official website, Hall said he has been keeping an eye on Holsey and thinks he is a hell of a football player that can play in the NFL. He also added that since the Redskins secondary is so deep, he might not get a lot of playing time unless a few players get hurt.

Hall suffered a season ending injury last season and hasn’t been able to participate in training camp. Despite not being able to practice with his teammates, Hall has been helping Holsey out from the sidelines, getting him ready for the start of the season.

Holsey told reporters that Hall has taken him under his wing and has been trying to teach him everything he has learned over the years. He added that Hall has been picking up on things he is doing wrong but doesn’t notice, and has been pointing them out to him, which has already been paying dividends.

Even though Hall has been converted to a safety, he spent the first 11 years of his NFL career as a cornerback, making three Pro Bowl appearances.

Hall said he is trying to impart some of the wisdom he has acquired during his time in the league to help Holsey become a better player. He also said he is pleased that their conversations haven’t been one-sided because Holsey has been receptive to the mentoring and ask as many questions as he can.

Hall asks Holsey what he sees on certain plays and what he was thinking at the time, then tells him what he would have done in the same situation, and how to put himself in a position to make a play.

The relationship between the two seems to be paying off because Holsey has made some great plays in training camp. The rookie had two interceptions on Friday. Holsey credited his improvement in training camp to Hall and the pointers he has been giving him.

While Hall and Holsey have formed a great relationship, the players came into the league under different circumstances. Hall was a highly rated cornerback coming out of Virginia Tech, and only seven players were selected ahead of him. Holsey on the other hand was one of the last players taken in the draft, and only 10 players were selected after him.

Holsey does have something in common with Hall, which is the fact that they both have a history of knee injuries. Since Holsey was one of the last players taken in the draft, the team won’t hesitate to release him if he doesn’t continue to impress during the preseason. His best shot may be at the practice squad.

E.J. Bibbs Hopes to Land Spot on Redskins Final Roster

The Washington Redskins made tight end E.J. Bibbs their first training camp signee last Thursday, after an impressive showing during his tryout. With Bibbs, the Redskins now have six tight ends on the 90-man roster. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the NFL odds for the Washington Redskins.

After he earned the roster spot, Bibbs got to practice with his new teammates. He told reporters that he thought he was just coming in to try out and expected a pretty easy day. However, after making the team, he had to practice after the tryouts as well. Although he admitted he was a little tired, he acknowledged that the rigorous workouts and practice are part of football.

Opportunities to sign with a team after workouts don’t come around very often, unless there is an injury or injuries. In Bibbs’ case, the injuries are to Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, who is currently on the physically unable to perform list, and Vernon Davis, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

Kirk Cousins Relying on Faith to Guide His Career

The Washington Redskins failed to achieve one of their biggest offseason goals, which was to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a long-term contract. Now, they go into the season hoping they can figure out how to keep Cousins on the team for longer than another year. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the 2017 football odds for Washington Redskins.

After the team was unable to reach a long-term deal with Cousins, the team issued a statement in which they said they offered the quarterback a $53 million deal but they didn’t get a response from Cousins or any of his reps. Read the rest of this entry »

Doctson has Big Shoes to Fill in Washington

Last season, the Washington Redskins used the 22nd pick in the draft to select Josh Doctson. At the time, the Redskins envisioned Doctson as a player that could become their best receiver in the future, after a successful collegiate career in which he had 25 touchdowns in two seasons with the TCU Horned Frogs. If you want to bet on the Redskins, check out the football odds for this season.

By selecting him with the 22nd pick, the Redskins were clearly impressed by what they saw from Doctson, who is 6 feet 2 inches tall and ran a 4.5 40 during pre-draft workouts. With Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson in the final year of their contracts, the Redskins were hoping Doctson would learn from the veterans and establish himself as a legitimate deep threat.

The Redskins weren’t able to see Doctson in action as much as they would have liked because he dealt with an Achilles injury that ended his season in October after being put on Injured Reserve. In the two games he played, Doctson had 22 catches for 66 yards. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Beat Eagles And Keep Playoff Hopes Alive

Carson Wentz drove the Philadelphia Eagles all the way down to the 14-yard line in the game’s dying moments, before Ryan Kerrigan’s eleventh sack of the season, and arguably the most timely, ended their drive, and gave the Washington Redskins a 27-22 victory. Washington ended their two game losing streak, and kept pace with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card playoff hunt. Check all the NFL odds and scores.

Kirk Cousins had a rather pedestrian day with just 234 passing yards, but he threw two touchdown passes, including an 80-yard bomb to former Eagle DeSean Jackson. That gave Washington a 14-13 lead in the third quarter. He then hooked up with Pierre Garcon for another touchdown, and a 21-13 lead.

The joy was short lived though, as Cousins would then throw an interception to Leodis McKelvin, and he would return it 29 yards to the Redskins end zone for an Eagles score, and gave them some momentum. But at 21-19, the Eagles went for two and failed to convert when a pass to Jordan Matthews was batted down. Read the rest of this entry »
