Video Of The Crowd Reacting To Campbell

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2009 – 4:41 pm

I’ve mentioned a few times that the crowd has really been responding to Jason Campbell, that they’ve been chanting his name, so on and so forth. Intern Dave was filming some snippets of the early part of training camp for some other purpose, but I figured I could use it to demonstrate my point.

Here, for purposes of comparison, is a short video that starts with the fans reacting to Chris Cooley‘s arrival this morning, plus the smatterings of applause given to Chase Daniel and Dominique Dorsey.


Okay. So keep that in mind. After the jump, Campbell takes the field. Read more »

On The Field For Morning Practice – 7/31

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2009 – 2:48 pm

A few notes about morning practice. To follow things like this (and, in some cases, these actual items) in real time, be sure to follow me on Twitter. (In fact, due to some techinical stuff, all of these photos come via my Twitter.)

In any event, it appears that the ovation and name-chanting for Jason Campbell is going to be a daily event. I was disappointed that Charles Robinson left that out of his otherwise very good profile of Campbell over at Yahoo! Sports while still mentioning the fans with the pro-Vick signs. Because there seem to be a whole lot of people doing the former, and only a few of the latter.

Speaking of the Vick signs, a few fans drove in from Pennsylvania today to offer up this counter-protest:

Friday, July 31: DeAngelo Hall Helps Endangered Children

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2009 – 7:33 am

The best time to get autographs at training camp — really the only time, unless you’re exceedingly lucky — is after practice. The players disperse along the rope and sign the things that are handed to them, and usually it’s a nice, efficient transaction. The players stick around as long as they can, the fans get their stuff signed and exchange a few words with the guys, everyone leaves happy.

From what I’ve seen around Redskins Park, this works out pretty well, primarily because the Redskins have a really good group of guys in the locker room. I know the kids who got DeAngelo Hall‘s cleats yesterday were pleased, as was their dad, Carl Chandler.

Chandler brought his two boys, Dakota and Cole, to their first training camp yesterday. “We decided to come up from Richmond for the day, get some autographs,” he told me. “They love the Redskins, that’s pretty much all they talk about.”

They enjoyed the practice. Chandler thought Jason Campbell “really looked pretty good,” and the kids got see their favorite player, Chris Cooley. Then they stuck around for the autographs.

“We were trying to get autographs from DeAngelo and everybody started crushing my son,” Chandler told me. “So DeAngelo pulled him from under the other side of the fence and told us to hang out and gave us his shoes.” Read more »
