Agreed. With Kerrigan most assuredly getting more attention from OC's, and hopefully a healthy Jenkins actually producing, instead of just the speculation surrounding his potential, Rak should be the beneficiary of more opportunities to rattle QB's cages. He must take advantage. If he does, his sack totals should jump into 15+ range.emphasis needs to be on Rak! we need him to step his game up another level.
Well I wouldn't think expectations woudl be nearly as high on those guys as they are for Kerrigan.now if we can get stepped up play from guys like Helu, Hankerson, Hurt, Gomes and the 2012 draft class to match with Griffin and an emerging star like Kerrigan.................
agree that youth matters...a lot. but so does that undefinable quality...team. not sure where we are right now in developing that Redskin "culture" that demands and receives total commitment and team above all approach.Not for every one. But championship teams over time develop by finding that fourth or fifth round pick that comes in and once acclimated to the NFL becomes a star in his own right.
The Redskins have a very young roster heading into 2012.
Most of the age on this team is at specialist positions such as punter (Rocca is 37) and kicker (Rackers is 35).
Other than Fletcher and Brown the starters here are all under 30.
Perfect opportunity for someone to step up and stake their claim.
Well, there's obviously other guys on the team with character issues, and though it may not fall under the description you gave, their character issues are equally as important.....and 2 of them were guys we just acquired during this past offseason....well, I think you see that in the approach of Griffin and Cousins so far.
there is no qb here that refuses to put in the work.
there is no star running back that comes into camp out of shape and expects preferential treatment.
I think the culture here turned for good with the trades of McNabb and Haynesworth.
There really is no one left on the roster, except perhaps D. Hall, that has a controversial personality on or off the field.
Can you think of anyone now with McIntosh gone on defense that is at odds with the coaching staff?
I recall reading that Allen and Shanahan were targeting draft picks that were college captains or co-captains to be leaders here and help develop that sense of 'team first' approach.
