Josh Bidwell Has To Become Ambidextrous

Posted by Matt Terl on May 24, 2010 – 3:34 pm

The Redskins have two candidates in place for a likely training camp kicker competition (which is always a good time). The incumbent, relatively speaking, is Graham Gano, who kicked 4 field goals in 4 attempts in 4 games with the team last year. Gano is an athlete, a gym rat, and a scotsman.

The challenger is Justin Medlock, signed back in February, and the subject of an in-depth profile by Dan Steinberg a few weeks ago. But one thing that’s not mentioned in the Steinberg profile is that Medlock kicks left-footed. This isn’t a huge problem for Medlock, who has been a successful left-footed kicker his entire life, but it’s presenting something of a hurdle to new punter — and presumptive holder — Josh Bidwell.

“I’ve been holding for fifteen years,” Bidwell says, “through college, high school, and the pros, but I never had to hold for a left-footed guy. It’s coming along, though. It’s definitely awkward and unnatural, but like with everything else, the reps clear everything out for you.”

Awkward and unnatural doesn’t exactly sound encouraging, but Medlock — one of those optimistic West Coast types — claims to be less concerned. Read more »

Brian Orakpo Is Not Good At Bowling, Maybe

Posted by Matt Terl on May 24, 2010 – 10:18 am

It’s been almost a year since our last bowling post here, and that cannot be allowed to stand. Thank goodness Lorenzo Alexander is looking out for us all. Alexander hosted a bowling charity event last week for his ACES Foundation, and Redskins.com TV was there. The first portion of this video is an encomium on all the terrific things that Alexander does, and there are a lot of them.

Midway through, though, the question comes up of who the best bowler is. Big Mike Williams‘s bowling acumen is mentioned (which longtime readers of this site might remember from last year’s bowling excursion), as is Lorenzo’s. And then H.B. Blades turns directly to the camera and says “Brian Orakpo is terrible.”

It’s doubly interesting, because WUSA-9’s Angie Goff bowled on Orakpo’s team and offered the following review: Orakpo “rightfully bowled by the name ‘Rak Daddy.’ He was very good too. Getting many strikes.”

Orakpo defended himself to Redskins.com TV: Read more »
