Scout Team Defense Color-Coordinates For Motivation

Posted by Matt Terl on October 8, 2009 – 4:39 pm

It’s been another zany one here at Redskins Park. Defensive coordinator Greg Blache is no longer speaking to the media, for what Coach Zorn describes as “personal reasons” and “a needed break”. Wide receiver Malcolm Kelly discussed a thumb injury, which Coach Zorn describes as “ongoing” and something that the receiver has played with. A scant two or three sentences later, Zorn talked about how Devin Thomas is “coming on.” Thomas has looked good in practice — better the last two weeks than he has in quite some time, honestly — but saying that he’s “coming on” feels a little premature at this point.

As I mentioned earlier, the team is watching some of the most unpleasant preseason football I can remember for motivation. And it turns out that the scout team defense has taken to color-coordinating their outfits as yet another motivational tool.

Redskins Rewatching Horrible 2008 Preseason Game For Motivation

Posted by Matt Terl on October 8, 2009 – 3:02 pm

The Redskins played this week’s opponents, the Carolina Panthers, during last year’s preseason. The results were not good. The Redskins lost 47-3 and gave up 228 rushing yards — and it was bad enough that I was shocked the number was that LOW when I looked it up. I thought the Panthers topped 300.

So, logically enough, Greg Blache announced today — during his last time addressing the media, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear [UPDATE: according to Coach Zorn, it is for “personal reasons”] — that they’ve been replaying that wonderful performance to get the team ready this week.

Thursday, October 8: Clinton Portis Walks The Runway For Charity

Posted by Matt Terl on October 8, 2009 – 9:57 am

Santana Moss wasn’t the only Redskins player doing his part for charity on Tuesday. Clinton Portis partnered with Becky’s Fund and Eric Finn Custom Clothiers to host Walk This Way, an event to benefit victims of domestic violence. The event took place on the rooftop of the Liaison Hotel in D.C.; a runway had been built in the rooftop pool, and Portis and Jason Campbell both appeared as models during the fashion show component.

It would be easy to just write about this as a Hey-These-Guys-Were-Models-For-A-Night — and I’ll get to that, no doubt — but Portis took the event extremely seriously. When I asked him about it the day before, he talked at length about the importance of stopping domestic violence. When I asked him about the modeling component that night, he talked about the seriousness of the cause. He talked to TV cameras about the cause.
