August 28-- Everyone is remaining calm

No one is jumping off a bridge, yet.. Al Saunders defended his team saying that they use the pre-season to try out different players in different protection schemes to see how they will react.. They are not running very much of the offense that they are practicing and he said for those of us who have watched practice, you’ll see a different output from this group from what you have seen.. And he continued to use his resume for everyone to rely on.. when he says, “this system will work.”
Santana Moss said he recognizes that everyone on the outside wants to see a different production level to show that this thing can be what he and his teammates believe it will be.. He said, it’s kind of like when you are in college and you don’t have pre-season games and you just have to be ready for the regular season saying he thinks things will definitely be different when Monday night’s opener comes..
Mark Brunell said the issue isn’t about being vanilla, he believes the Redskins should have and should be more productive in the pre-season then they have been, but like his other teammates, pledged full support to what the offense is doing and that things will get right sooner rather then later.. Brunell said he has not been told how much the first team offense will play against the Ravens.. Typically, the starters make only a cursory appearance in the last pre-seaosn game but it is being bandied about if they will play a little longer due to the sluggishness of the first 3 pre-season games..
Essentially, the doom and gloom projected by everyone else is not in the front of the public mindset of those at the Park..

P Derrick Frost admits he has played poorly the last couple of weeks and he expects a new punter to come in and compete for his job later this week.. Team sources have told me that they are prepared to have a new punter come in when the coaching staff is ready.. Frost said he is not relieved by the release of David Lonie saying he knows the competition will continue..

Phillip Daniels and Cornelious Griffin both reiterated that nothing from last year carries over here and that each player must start by looking in the mirror as the defense has struggled…

Director of Pro scouting Louis Riddick joined Redskins Lunch and said the team has a list of 90 players who may be released next week, he thinks only half will be available so the Redskins are prepared to add some help at specific positions should the right guys be on the market.. This likely means an O-lineman and potentially more help in the secondary and of course a punter..

Injuries: DE Phillip Daniels said he will not play this week against Baltimore still dealing with a strained back but was back on the field doing some individual work today for the first time since the injury, he was still not in pads though.. DT Cornelious Griffin was also running with his teammates, but also not in pads and is unlikely to play vs. the Ravens.. he sprained a knee ligament against the Jets..
T Jim Molinaro was back at practice for the first time since a knee scope a few weeks ago, he was said to be tired by the end of practice..
FB Mike Sellars has a stomach virus and was held out of practice.. DT Demetric Evans missed practice because he has an infected wisdom tooth and is having it extracted..
DE Renaldo Wynn is said to be doing great, but missed practice after suffering a sprained ankle against NE, he is unlikely to play vs. the Ravens..
RB Clinton Portis did some running and strengthening of his shoulder but remains out of practice and will not play Thursday..
CB Shawn Springs was on the field, not in pads, did some very light work and is a ways away from actually practicing..
LB Khary Campbell missed practice, he has a swollen bursa sac on his knee..
LB Robert McCune was held out with a strained hamstring and is said not to be ready to return to practice…
