Redskins | Neil Rackers not guaranteed anything Wed Apr 25, 06:01 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said the team did not guarantee PK Neil Rackers anything when he signed with the team and that he will have to compete with PK Graham Gano for the job.

That isn't how you treat Racktacular is it?

So they draft RGIII and Kirk Cousins (A move I don't like) and then cut John Beck. (Who cares?)

Quote :
NEW YORK -- John Beck was the story of the third day of the 2011 NFL Draft. After the Washington Redskins passed on taking a quarterback in the first six rounds, the Redskins leaked information that Beck was the presumptive starting quarterback.

We're here at Radio City Music Hall grinding through Day 3 of the draft again, and Beck is back in the headlines. NFL Network's Michael Lombardi broke the news that Beck was released by the Redskins. It was that kind of year.

During training camp last year, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he would stake his reputation on Beck and Rex Grossman. Beck struggled with injuries in camp, then struggled to move the ball when he got a chance behind center. Beck was benched after just three starts, and now he's looking for a job.

If nothing else, Beck has the right attitude to survive a moment like this. Nothing seems to dent his confidence.

"I've talked to a lot of guys that are considered Hall of Fame guys that had great careers," Beck said earlier this offseason. "And they'll tell you, listen, nobody's path is just all roses. Everybody has to fight through something."

Beck has to fight through something else. Shanahan's love affair with him didn't last long.

Draft Recap from Bleacher Report:

Quote :
Draft Picks:

Round 1: QB Robert Griffin III (Baylor)

Round 2: None

Round 3: OG Josh Leribeus (SMU)

Round 4: QB Kirk Cousins (Michigan State), ILB Keenan Robinson (Texas)

Round 5: OG Adam Gettis (Iowa)

Round 6: RB Alfred Morris (FAU), OT Tom Compton (South Dakota)

Round 7: CB Richard Crawford (SMU), CB Jordan Bernstine (Iowa)


Grade: B+


Summary:

Their first pick gets an A+. Their fourth pick gets an F. Why the Redskins would draft two quarterbacks in their first four selections is beyond me.

Josh Leribeus and Adam Gettis have big potential at guard and will bolster a poorly built interior offensive line in Washington.

Keep an eye on Keenan Robinson and Alfred Morris. Both could surprise people with big playing time in 2012.

I know everyone is going to say I'm overreacting but I think the Cousins pick was one of the worst of the draft. You drafted your FRANCHISE QB with the #2 pick which you sold the farm to acquire and then in the fourth you take another QB? Why? Why the hell would you do that? If Kirk looks GREAT in the preseason and RGIII struggles you know you'll have a QB controversy. I mean I'm a Giants fan so what the hell do I care for but really.

RGIII is already fielding questions about how he feels about the Cousins pick. This isn't what he should have to be talking about right now. Yes I understand the need to add depth behind a physical QB who plays high risk sometime but you have Rex Grossman in a backup. Why take one in the fourth?

I just really like RGIII and want him to succeed. He's an original, he's something special and even if he's a Skin I want him to have a great career.

You take Cousins to develop him and hopefully trade him for a profit in 2-3 years. I don't think anyone will seriously want to start Cousins over RGIII in the pre-season. Not a bad pick.

Didn't like it at first, but I'm ok with it now. It means that Beck will never see the field again as a Redskin. Hopefully we can pull a Kolb with him where he has some good games and then we can get some value for him

Quote :
The Washington Redskins and running back Tim Hightower have agreed to terms on a deal to bring the four-year veteran back for another season.

Hightower announced the news on his twitter account Sunday night, saying ā€œIā€™m baaaaaaaack,ā€ and a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the agreement between the two sides indeed has been reached.

Since the end of the season, Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan and Hightower have both expressed mutual interest to re-sign the running back, whom Washington acquired via trade last offseason.

I love the guys that own Helu say he's 100% the starter and every down back.

I don't care if he's 10 times more talented than Hightower and Royster there is no way you can know that Helu will start.

I love everyone that swore up and down that Helu would 100% be the starter. Do you not realize who the coach of the Skins is?

Quote :
Washington Redskins RB Tim Hightower (knee) is believed to be the favorite for the starting running back job even though he is still coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

ROTFLMAO

No way Hightower is going to handle the load after that injury, you are a fool to think Helu is not the man (Even with Shanny there)

Quote :
According to beat writer Rich Campbell, Washington running back Tim Hightower (ACL surgery) is listed as No. 1 on the first official depth chart of the season.

Analysis: Only coach Mike Shanahan could list a player who hasn't been able to practice and isn't close to returning as his starting running back. Evan Royster was No. 2 and Roy Helu was listed as No. 3. If you draft any of the three, you better go out and buy a "Magic Eight Ball" or bug Shanahan's office.

Is anyone shocked?

Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Evan Royster will start at tailback in the preseason opener.

Tim Hightower (ACL surgery) is symbolically first on the depth chart, but he's not going to play Thursday night. Shanahan expects Hightower to make his exhibition debut in the third game. Royster remains the favorite over Roy Helu and a recovering Hightower to enter Week 1 as the primary early-down back.

Who knows with Shanahan and his RB's but I had to take a chance on Royster after he finished 2011 with back to back solid games of 132 and 113 yards.

Cousins looked great, too bad he will be riding the bench.

18/23, 264 YDS, 3 TD

Yup second and third string, but still impressive.

I'm not sure about playoffs this year, but I actually think the skins have pretty good depth. The issue is they're in a division of pass rushers and solid QB play, and their 2 weaknesses are O-line and secondary. At least RG3 is 10 years younger than the other 3 QBs, so in the next few years I see them making more noise

They need to keep their young receiving core and have solid RBs. D line looks great

what I said was more of an indictment of how tough the NFC East will be than it was a shot at how good/bad of a team the Giants are. I think they will finish either 8-8 or 7-9 and being as though they will be hte doormat thats pretty solid.

I have mixed feelings on it. They gave up a huge amount to trade up to get him, so I obviously want no defender to ever touch him. However, part of what makes him a special player is what he can do with his feet, so I want them to utilize that.

However I know there was a 10 play drive today with 8 option plays. A little excessive...

Was at the game today. More boneheaded calls by the refs, but we were definitely outplayed today. Defense looks pretty bad...

Washington Redskins RB Ryan Grant, who signed a free-agent deal with the team Tuesday, will add depth to the running back corps with RBs Evan Royster (knee, toe) and Roy Helu Jr. (toe) dealing with injuries. Royster is day-to-day with a strained patella tendon in his right knee, and he also aggravated a pre-existing turf toe injury. Helu is dealing with turf toe and had been limited with an injured Achilles' tendon in the preseason. Royster was limping around Monday, Sept. 24. Helu was wearing a walking boot following the team's Week 3 game

Just wait until Hightower comes back!
