Training Camp Video: Punt Returners

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 11, 2012 – 4:22 pm

Here’s a rare look for you Redskins fans.

The first drill at each practice so far in training camp this year has been the punt- and kick-returners catching footballs launched from the JUGS machines.

It was a good look at a very competitive position on this football team. Coach Mike Shanahan has made it known several times that he wants his returners to contribute both on special teams and through their specific listed positions on offense or defense.

So here’s a little video of some of the punt returners at practice today. Since they’re so far away, I tried to announce each returner as his turn came up:

    Can you explain to me why Griffin received so little playing time Thursday night? Is he an established Pro Bowl veteran? Because he played as much as Brees, Rodgers, and the Mannings. While fellow rookies Tannenhill and Luck received a whole half of action, along with guys like Matt Flynn. I know they were worried about the O-line protecting him, but odds are they will have that same line starting in Week 1. What really bothered me was that the first series he was replaced, the Skins started on their own 4-yard line. What an opportunity to experience being backed up in your own end-zone on the road. I find it hard to believe he gained any experience in his screen passes while Kirk Cousins gained experience in running the 2- minute drill and an entire half. Are we scared to let Griffin make a mistake and slow down the sale of his jerseys?

    I think you’re looking too deep into the situation. Griffin had 3 drives of which on the 3rd drive they may have saw enough progress for the day. If they dont score, does he get another drive? Maybe…maybe not. Point is he is a major investment and you have to protect it. There are 3 more Pre-Season games for him to see action in. The less we are able to have him scouted the better chance he has for success. #HTTR

    He has been given status of first string. So when all of the first stringers were taken off the field, so was RGIII. I agree that he probably could use a little more time on the field but this was the first preseason game and he played about the number of plays they were looking for him to. Game number two in preseason will show more and game three will show the most before the First team shuts it down. Have a little faith in the Coaching staff, I believe they are looking out for his best interest and he hasn’s dissappointed yet.

    On a sarcastic side, maybe Cousins was showcasing his skills to be the #2 because Grossman didn’t have the cardiovascular endurance to run it… ­čÖé We could only hope… HTTR!
