Training camps taking on new look

Postby Jake » Tue Jul 27, 2004 2:13 pm

6. Joe Gibbs is trying to conduct his training camp in as much privacy as possible. He's limited access to reporters watching practices after the preseason games begin. In addition, fans won't be able to watch the Redskins either. Expect a tough training camp. Gibbs was hired for his attention to detail and discipline, something lacking during the Steve Spurrier years. He will be concentrating on the efficiency of quarterback Mark Brunell and the legs of halfback Clinton Portis. Offensive line coach Joe Bugel will be drilling the offensive line, which underachieved last season. It's going to be perhaps the most interesting camp in football. Too bad Gibbs isn't letting everyone take a look. ... id=1846737

Ok here is my question. Are we going to go to camp and see them all sitting down on the field?? We have to see something even if it's not the new playbook in action. What is with the media and this story.
Whenever I start to get blue, I just breathe!

My favortie line from the Simpsons:

Flanders: "Looks like someone is having a pre-rapture party!"

Homer: "No Flanders, it's a meeting of gay witches for abortion , you wouldn't be interested!"

So Joe Gibbs wants to have an edge over the opposition for the first few games of the regualr season. That's part of his genius. The media can turn anything into a story. It must be a slow news day.
How many more sleeps until next season?

Gibbs has the correct approach, the fewer talking heads the better.

This one of the few articles that have correctly critiqued
our line. Sorry :oops: , just something I noticed. Most reporters have been saying that our line sucked.
The road to the number 1 pick gaining speed!
