Some Redskins Comment on The Acquisitions; Then There's Rocky McIntosh

Posted by Matt Terl on February 27, 2009 – 12:23 pm

Even though the activity level in the building is much higher than it has been, and even though the media presence has increased enormously (from “zero” to “a whole lot”), there still aren’t that many players here. Still, it seemed worthwhile to see if any of them had anything interesting to say about last night’s two big signings.

Mostly, no.

Kedric Golston was excited about Albert Haynesworth, his new defensive linemate:

(That’s Intern Bridgette asking the question, by the way — I haven’t undergone a startling and unexpected voice change.)

Chris Samuels was also enthusiastic about Haynesworth, but you couldn’t hear him on the video with Golston shouting in the background.

Similarly, Byron Westbrook was pleased with the team locking down fellow cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

All pretty much as you’d expect, really — guys are unlikely to come out and say, “I hate the signing, I hate the guy, and it’s a terrible move.”

But if there’s one guy you can count on to give you something at least slightly different from what you’d expect, it would be linebacker Rocky McIntosh. And he didn’t disappoint here. It’s nothing so lively as the example above, but it’s perfectly entertaining to watch the “stock answers to interview questions” machine in his brain go a little haywire.

Not quite as spontaneous as the Cooley brothers’ mistaking Shaun Rogers for Albert Haynesworth, but amusing enough.
