November 16-- Sean Taylor's Penalties, TJ's playing time

The Redskins had a shortened practice in extremely rainy conditions.. Joe Gibbs is against working inside (not that the Skins have a facility to do that anyway) because he believes you practice outside because you play outside terming this “Redskins weather.”
Gregg Williams said he was impressed by the way Jason Campbell played in the practice today but called it a better defensive day..

Williams talked about Sean Taylor and his penalties saying he’s been trying for years to speed players up not slow them down and the last thing he wants to do is force Taylor to go slower.. He defended the penalty that occurred five yards out of bounds saying Taylor was trying to pull off.. On Taylor’s coverage skills, he says the safety still has some things to work on saying his “eyes” need to be in the right place on certain occasions and admitted he was beat on the long touchdown pass, but says that in general he is happy with Taylor’s play also saying he couldn’t do any more on run support..

On the lack of turnovers, Williams said they sniffed out an early play by the Eagles where Marcus Washington jumped a route but didn’t get the interception.. Williams told Washington to make that play if he saw a certain formation and to blame him after the game if they were beat with something else, but unfortunately he didn’t make the catch.. Williams continues to preach patience, that the turnovers will come and was mad about the missed call near the Skins goal line on what appeared to be a fumble…

RB TJ Duckett said he never complained about playing time because there wouldn’t have been a point and he is glad his opportunity is finally going to come to play.. Duckett is the primary back-up heading into the Tampa game which means the bulk of the carries will go to Ladell Betts.. Duckett may have a number of carries dependent on situation.. if the Skins are in short yardage or goal line situations, expect Duckett to get more attempts then if they are not in those situations.. Duckett was used in practice in goal line and short yardage during practice a week ago after the team couldn’t punch it in against Dallas..
