Rich Campbell's 8/14 Practice Report

I posted these numbers earlier in camp, but they’re worth mentioning again. Cam Newton, one of two dual-threat quarterbacks to whom Griffin will be most often compared (Michael Vick being the other), helped the Carolina Panthers go from dead last in red zone efficiency in 2010 to seventh last season (57.89 percent). The Redskins scored touchdowns on only 41.18 percent of their red zone trips in 2011. Only three teams were worse. I expect a significant improvement this season.

I concur with Rich on this.

John Keim's 8/14 RGIII Report

Sure enough, Griffin was in a good rhythm Tuesday. He did not hit every pass, but he did have a few dropped (two by Santana Moss over the middle). And once more there’s reason to believe he’ll be a big weapon inside the red zone because of his legs, whether on broken plays or scheduled ones (though there was one play today in which Kedric Golston might have drilled Griffin had it been in a game; beat Adam Gettis to the outside).


About the drilling, RGIII has been holding the ball longer in practice to make practice his progressions, so in a game, the quick release that Keim wrote about would take effect and avert the drilling.

Mike Jones' 8/14 Practice Report

Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and secondary coach Raheem Morris appear to be experimenting with their depth and versatility at safety. Brandon Meriweather remains the starting strong safety, while Williams continues to hold the free safety spot. But on Tuesday, Tanard Jackson, who has been competing with Williams, replaced Meriweather on some of the nickel packages. Previously in his career, Meriweather hasn’t been considered to be particularly strong in downfield pass coverage. Jackson could be the answer on some of those situations.

ESPN's John Clayton like Alfred Morris

Clayton: "I wanted to take a look and see where it was at the running back position, and I was very much intrigued by Alfred Morris. It looks like there’s some type of potential there; Morris broke a couple nice runs [in camp].

Rarely does LPJ speak for anyone but LPJ, but he out did himself and spoke for more than a few (if not all) of us.

Again, I say thanks, but I must give credit you, 1niksder, for your Saturday Quick-Hitters Thread. That is what really started it. Credit must also go to Irn Bru for for suggesting that a Training Camp Thread be started. That's teamwork!

Redskins‏@Redskins

Shanahan says DE Jarvis Jenkins has the ability to play at NT, but "we'll probably give the guys we already have there a chance first."


I remember this being talked about when Jenkins was drafted. Will we see more of Cofield at DE?

^^^ thanks from me too mate .. :D



Hopefully we see Cofield playing better after a year with this group

ALSO

hopefully we see Jenkins getting back into the being the force he was showing he could be before he got injured
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

HAIL
