  • Anyone have updated info on Spaight?

    Washington has a pretty solid duo starting at ILB for them already and brought in the talented Zach Brown.

    Spaight is unlikely to start this season barring injury. However, he's been making plays in camp and getting noticed. It's just like being an AJ Derby playing behind Gronk and Martellus Bennett. He showed enough to beat out the other guys and be worth trading for to be the starting TE in a tight spot for the Broncos, but he wasn't going to beat out the starters in NE. The ILB group in Washington isn't to the same level as Gronkowski, but it's a similar dynamic.

    Two Dolphins UDFA WRs have scored TDs tonight and Morgan doesn't have a catch. Hopefully he can get things going.

  • Lots of Hogs playing tonight.  I want to see how Mallett, Brandon Allen and Drew Morgan do.

    Unfortunately for Mallett, no NFL team has figured out the way that maximizes his strength and ability.    Sort of reminds me of Hershel Walker's foray in the NFL as he, like Mallett, was such a freak of nature that no one ever figured out how to use them properly.

    I think the problem with Mallett is that you have to let him loose.

    Typically, the approach you go with is to start small and work your way up to bigger things. Mallett's small game is his weakest. He's not that great of a game manager. He's much more of a Cutler type of qb, and that isn't what a lot of teams are looking for. You need to let Mallett use his rocket arm, throw the ball deep, throw some interceptions but also make some throws that most other starting qb's in the NFL can't make. Then work on reining in on those picks.

    Walker went to two pro bowls. Mallett will not. Team only throws so many bombs a game. Have to move the chains too.

  • Zach Hocker signs with Bucs

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.saturdaydownsouth.com/arkansas-football/buccaneers-replace-released-k-roberto-aguayo-former-arkansas-k-zach-hocker/amp/

     Scott Smith‏Verified account @ScottSBucs 16h16 hours ago

    Zach Hocker, the kicker signed by the Bucs on Sunday, played for the Saints and Rams in 2015, was 10-14 on FGs.



    Quote
    Hocker played for two teams during the 2015 regular season, appearing in six games with the New Orleans Saints and two with the St. Louis Rams. In that time he made 10 of 14 field goal attempts, with a long of 51, and 12 of 13 extra point tries. He also punted once for 43 yards while with the Saints. Hocker performed well on kickoffs in 2015, producing nine touchbacks on 12 attempts.

    The Washington Redskins drafted Hocker out of Arkansas in the seventh round in 2014 but waived him at the end of his first preseason and giving the job to Kai Forbath. Hocker didn't play in the league in 2014 but signed with the Miami Dolphins the following January. Though he was eventually released by the Dolphins, he ended up in New Orleans, where he won a preseason battle with kicker Dustin Hopkins and started the season as the Saints' kicker.

    Coincidentally, the Saints later waived Hocker after six games and signed Forbath, who had been released by Washington after the Redskins signed Hopkins. Hocker later filled in briefly for the Rams while Greg Zuerlein was injured. Hocker also went to training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals last year.

    Hocker (6-0, 189) spent four years as the Razorbacks' kicker, making 61 of 79 career field goal tries and 171 of 173 extra point attempts. As a senior, he was perfect on 28 PATs while making 13 of 15 field goals. He hails from Russellville...

    Loved the Gates interview during last nights game when the reporter almost hesitated when asking about HH basically being there to replace him. Gates just laughed and was very complementary of HH and said it was like a big bro/little bro relationship.

  • May be reading too much into it, but AC coming into the game when he did, and the way his team was reacting after he dropped the pass and when he scored seemed to be a sense of them maybe knowing something about his future in Seattle.

    In spite of ownership and coaches not remotely comprehending how to use him.   His pro bowls were of his own doing.....

  • Tevin Mitchel was toast on Sunday
    "Corner Tevin Mitchel was abjectly abused all day long. If there was a question coming into the game about whether Mitchel deserved to be starting ahead of Wilson, he clearly answered that question. He was outmatched or out of position, and generally ineffective all day long as Lions quarterbacks picked him apart. He has real work to do if he hopes to put different images in the heads of coaches and fans."

  • We went to last Friday's Seahawks training camp with my kids and we all noticed the other RBs getting more reps with the 1's than AC.  Alex was playing a lot more special team than we saw in last year's training camp where we got his autograph and photos with him.  The other RBs were great in practice last week so it's going to be a battle to get that 3rd/4th RB spot this year.  AC caught every pass thrown to him in practice last Friday and was sad he wasn't able to pull in the ball last night.  Hope he makes the cut as I think other teams will snatch him if he gets put on practice squad.

  • Knile Shows Ability to Create

    "Brief film room study today before it’s off to camp. The battle for the #3 running back spot has heated up. Fitzgerald Toussaint has held his own and looks steady as ever. Terrell Watson has been something of a camp sleeper who seems like a lock to make the practice squad. But Knile Davis has surprised me maybe the most. Not only is he well-rounded, can catch, block, return, what he’s showing as a runner is attractive."

    ""[Hollister] had a good spring workout. We also worked out his brother at Arkansas and then Jacob actually trained at Arkansas with his brother in the spring.

    That knee to the head really rung his bell. It looked to me like he was having issues with balance going down the stairs as he was being helped to the locker room.

    Hope he recovers quickly!

  • Jeremy Sprinkle: C+ A fifth round tight end from Arkansas, Sprinkle came to the Redskins with a reputation as a tough blocker. That didn't seem to show up early in camp, though the second week Sprinkle started to use his big body much more effectively. Even better for Sprinkle, he showed late in Richmond that he can be more than a blocker, as some soft hands got on display. Sprinkle is the player that might force Jay Gruden to keep four tight ends.
