Okay, I am going to take a mallet to the head of the guy who invented twitter.

Here's a live commentary on the scrimmage, culled from tweets by J Reid, Rick Maese, Dan Steinberg and others:

Malcolm Kelly, as you would expect, is in helmet and pads; Santana Moss and Devin Thomas are not. Clinton Portis turned heads by wearing a winter hat onto the field (wind chill might be 85). He has since removed it.

Jason Campbell led the QBs onto the field and there was some heckling of Todd "Toddball" Collins.

Steinberg reports that DeAngelo Hall's wife has a D Hall 23 tatoo on her back. Maese reports that in his remarks to fans, Jim Zorn talked told fans the goal was to go to the Super Bowl, mentioned some guy named Keith Barnes and said Colt Brennan would lead the second-team offense against the first-team defense. According to Maese, there was no mention of Collins seeing any action. Oh, and Zorn told fans to "stay calm, act medium."

The scrimmage is underway shortly after 2 p.m. and, SportsBog reports that as Campbell throws errant pass, fan yells "We want Vick."

So the offensive line takes another hit with Bridges going down and in passing, it's mentioned that Samuels had fluid drained from his knee.

The storm clouds are getting a little more darker and ominous around our Oline at camp aren't they? It makes me scratch my head a little bit more about the Fred Davis pick last draft when we had a chance to address some Oline issues.

Now....where's that storm shelter?

:help:

I believe teams with long term success draft best available. That is why I am wondering who is available in FA next year on OL. Anyone young players available. One good signing and a few draft choices, OT in first, G in second, C in later rounds would really set us up. It does take time for an OL to jell so it is soon getting time to start getting a line that can stick together for 5 years.

Yeah, I'm still not sure why Davis was drafted.

Positions of need:
1. LT (there is no real back up LT here and Samuels isn't getting younger)
2. RT- as much as I like Heyer, I think he'll be more of a good depth player
3. RG- Is Rinehart the long term solution, or do we need to find someone else?
4. SOLB- Orakpo should be the DE who can pop out and play LB to confuse offenses (like zone blitzing); however the Skins need a OLB unless they thuink Wilson is the guy.
