It’s the second day of training camp practice for the 2012 season, and there’s already one clear difference from the first day: the heat.

The heat index for Thursday’s first practice of the year reached as high as 107 degrees. Right now, it’s at 93 degrees.

Yeah, it’s a true ice box out here.

Rookie Spotlight: Kirk Cousins

Posted by Andrew Walker on July 27, 2012 – 1:56 pm

Each day during training camp, the Redskins Blog will be highlighting one rookie as they participate in their first professional camp and try to find their way onto the final roster. Today’s spotlight is on quarterback Kirk Cousins.

He was shocked upon learning the Washington Redskins had selected him in the fourth round of April’s NFL Draft.

But since that time, rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins said he has really enjoyed his first few months with the Redskins, and feels he has the ideal situation in front of him to grow and develop as a quarterback in the National Football League.

Cousins on Thursday afternoon participated in his first professional training camp practice, which he chalked up to a learning experience.

“It went well,” Cousins said Friday after the team’s morning walk-through session in the Redskins’ Indoor Training Facility. “Definitely a lot of learning taking place, mistakes being made as a rookie which is to be expected, but a dream come true to be a part of an NFL training camp, a very exciting opportunity — just gotta get used to that heat going forward.”

Don Banks Talks Griffin III’s ‘Honeymoon’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 27, 2012 – 11:19 am

One of the stray benefits of having increased hoopla around Redskins training camp, is the parade of media celebrities.

As the NFL team in the Capital of the Free World, the Redskins are accustomed to having some of the industry leaders as beat reporters, who cover the team on a day-to-day basis.  But training camp is the perfect forum to welcome some of the titans of the sports media industry, including Don Banks from Sports Illustrated.

Banks traveled to Redskins Park on Wednesday afternoon, from his home near Philadelphia (I’m sure he instantly enjoyed the difference).  Banks has been a familiar face at Redskins Park in recent seasons–probably because he has two sons living in Ashburn.  A little unplanned family time and a must-see quarterback made Washington the first stop on his 11-city training camp tour.

“I usually get between 10-12 teams on camp tours, so I usually try to see about a third of the league,” he said.  “After that, you have time constraints and you don’t want to load up so much that you really aren’t spending any quality time at each stop.  You’re doing a drive-by, and that’s a bunch of wasted energy for very little gain.”

Banks starts with the best, beginning his trek in Washington.  From here, he will also see the Eagles, Jets, Bills, Panthers, Ravens, Packers, Vikings, Texans, Cowboys and Chargers.  That other team in the NFC East didn’t quite make the cut.

Before Banks split for Philadelphia, he squeezed in a few minutes to share his early impressions of one Robert Griffin III.  With all of the ecstasy surrounding his first few months with the Redskins, I had to know if we love Griffin III more as a dynamic player or as a dynamic personality.

“I actually think it’s for the whole package,” he said.  “I think it’s what he does on the field catches your eye, and he obviously throws so well on the move.  But you don’t talk to too many pro athletes that kinda knock everything out of the park [in an interview].

“He’s poised, he’s intelligent, he kinda knows when to charm you, when to get serious, and when to lighten the moment,” Banks explained.  “I just thought the D.C. area was going to fall in love with him, and have this raging, long honeymoon.  It’s pretty much gone the way I expected it.” Read more »

Note: The Redskins Blog will be profiling several former players, coaches and team officials eligible to be voted by you, the fans, in this year’s Redskins 80th Anniversary celebration. To vote for Sean Taylor or your 10 other all-timers to join the already-chosen list of the 70 Greatest Redskins, go to http://www.redskins80th.com/

As a beginning note, I couldn’t possibly begin to try to put the life and career of Sean Taylor into a few paragraphs.

So I turn to the writing of former Redskins.com writer Gary Fitzgerald, who wrote this piece shortly after Taylor died in November 2007 after suffering a fatal gunshot wound in his Miami home:
