Note: Each day during the team’s training camp, Washington Redskins’ outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will blog his insights about the team and his own life as he begins his second season in the NFL. To ask Ryan a question for the blog, you can leave a comment below, tweet your question to the Redskins’ account (@Redskins) with the hashtag #KerriganBlog, or leave a comment on the Redskins’ Facebook or Google+ pages.
What’s up ‘Skins fans?? I just got back to the hotel after the first real day of camp and man, am I beat! It was great to be back playing ball again, though. Practice went pretty well for the team overall but geez it was hot! I don’t think I’ve ever sweated more than I did today.
I kept thinking to myself about the scene from Anchorman when Ron Burgundy is walking around the city and yells, “It’s soooo HOT! Milk was a bad choice!”
Despite the heat, we were able to have a really good first practice. I liked that we were able to carry over a lot of the things we learned throughout OTAs and build on them today at practice. I can’t begin to tell you how excited all of us are for this season!
I’d be remiss not to mention the OUTSTANDING fan support we had today. Thanks to all of you that made it out; it really makes practice exciting when you all are out there. I hope you all can keep it up throughout the rest of camp.
Here are a couple great questions. I encourage you to keep on asking whatever you want to know by commenting below or by sending your questions to the Redskins’ social media pages.
From ‘Leon’ (@Leon9231) on the Redskins Twitter:
“How does it feel to play alongside a leader like London Fletcher? #Kerriganblog”
It’s been a privilege to be able to play alongside someone like London. The term “coach on the field” gets thrown around a lot, but he really is just that. He makes us all better. He’s someone who I hope to emulate in virtually every way.
From ‘Dan Dering’ on the Redskins Blog:
“What is single biggest difference for you compared to last year?”
I’m much more comfortable in knowing my responsibilities this year. Last year I was learning on the fly and it took me a little bit to feel confident in my assignments, but so far this year, I’m more confident in my responsibilities which, I believe, will allow me to play faster and more effectively.
That’s all I got for today though. Time to hit the hay and get ready for tomorrow.
