Some Good and Bad Speculation. From profootballweekly.com

Postby Jake » Tue Jan 06, 2004 5:48 am

Word around Redskins Park is that some of Steve Spurrier’s assistants have really turned on their former coach after he failed to contact many of them following his resignation.


One player the Redskins would like to develop and give more experience to is QB Gibran Hamdan, who could end up playing in Europe.

Don’t believe those rumors that Raiders senior assistant Bruce Allen is a candidate for a job with the Redskins — it’s simply not true according to sources close to the situation in Washington.

The one thing that could keep LB Jesse Armstead in Washington is if the Redskins hire Jim Fassel, who has remained close to Armstead.

Keep an eye on Redskins LB Clifton Smith, a player who the team wants to see develop. The team liked his productivity in the preseason and thinks he could develop into a starter two or three years down the road.

Some people around Redskins Park have soured on RB Ladell Betts’ act, which has included missed meetings this season.

the axe is still coming for most of these guys, even though spurrier didn't have the balls to do it.

Brindise is reportedly taking the offensive coordinator job with ECU.

The most surprising thing I read from that article was about Ladell Betts. I am shocked to read something like this. He is one of the classiest and friendliest people on the team.

I was a little surprised but pleased to read about Hamdan possibly going to Europe. I will definitely be watching and rooting for him.

Jake - I love ya bro but I have to letcha know that all nice guys aren't as nice as they seem :) I liked Betts, but I wondered how long a friggin fracture was gonna last. It wasn't even a full break. We had Ramsey and LC playing with foot breaks that were certainly serious enough to keep them off the field.

LC earned almost 1300 yards... Ramsey took 20+ sacks after and still hung in there. I question Betts' heart.

Betts is a mediocre back at best. He just looked impressive this season becuase of who else was coming out of our backfield. I saw one too many of his "look out blocks" that allowed Ramsey to get drilled to be real excited about his running abilities. There is more to the RB slot than hitting the holes.
