Kareem Moore Is A Skip Bayless Fan

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2010 – 3:18 pm

When Stephen A. Smith took a bit of a shot at the Redskins on Twitter the other day, saying they’d finish 8-8, Kareem Moore tweeted a response. Due to the inherent limitations of Twitter — especially since Moore had to include a quote from the notoriously verbose Smith — Moore’s response was relatively terse, just the emphatic-looking “WOWWWWWW.” So I caught up with the safety to see if he could expand on that a little bit.

“You just wanna go out there and prove everybody wrong, man,” Moore said. “You know, 8 and 8?!? And just wanted to do it so all the fans could see it, ’cause I don’t know if they follow him or not.”

I mentioned that I did not, which is when Moore — a likeable, funny guy — offered up an opinion that shocked me. Read more »

Chris Cooley Thinks That Chris Cooley Had A Disappointing Morning Practice

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2010 – 2:58 pm

There is a lot of hope and optimism that comes with training camp. All the new schemes are going to work, the new quarterback is going to be worlds better than the last guy, the new coach is going to restore the franchise, the miseries of the past are gone and done. That’s the way the football world looks in July, and that’s a big part of why football is so popular.

That optimistic tone also carries over from the macro level to the micro level. When I’m tweeting from practice, I’m more likely to write “Great catch by Devin Thomas over the middle” than “I wonder if someone should’ve been in better position to defend that.” It’s just part of that whole optimistic training camp THING.

And at some point during training camp, just about everybody gets tired of this and starts looking for a healthy dose of negativity.

Chris Cooley is here to oblige the folks who are already there. Speaking to the media after practice today, Cooley claimed to be his own toughest critic — and then proceeded to prove it.

“I expect a ton out of myself,” Cooley said. “I put a lot of pressure on myself. I honestly believe that I’m my biggest critic. I will go in there right now and watch that whole practice. I’m really not happy with the way I practiced today. There’s always stuff that I feel like I could do better. But I think this offense is going to give me every opportunity to make big plays and most importantly just to help our team.”

Ahhhhh. Bracingly critical. But even Cooley couldn’t dial down the training camp optimism completely: Read more »

Play Of The Morning Practice: Darrel Young's Block

Posted by Matt Terl on July 31, 2010 – 12:32 pm

There were a few nice plays in an intense morning practice session — some good throws, especially by Donovan McNabb; a less-good McNabb pass that was intercepted by DeAngelo Hall and taken back for six; a solid performance kicking FGs by Graham Gano — but the play of the day for me was made by a guy who didn’t even have the ball in his hands.

Darrel Young was in training camp with the Redskins last year as a linebacker, but he’s now been switched back to his college position of running back. (“Right now I’m playing basically fullback,” he says, “but starting next week I’ll be playing a little running back just from the pass protect game, kinda like a little Leonard Weaver style.”)

On the play in question, he was working as the blocking fullback, coming to the right side of the second-string line next to Stephon Heyer and guard Chad Rinehart. As the ball carrier made his cut, Young locked in on cornerback Kevin Barnes coming in to stop the run, and flat-out leveled him. “I just hit him ’cause he showed up,” Young told me after practice. “He’s still not talking to me, probably.”

Despite Young’s matter-of-fact description, the play was notable. “I didn’t see the hit,” Rinehart said, “but I heard it.”
