September 13-- Springs is Happy, Lloyd is not worried

Joe Gibbs says "I am not into sending messages," when discussing the decision to sign WR Reche Caldwell to a one year deal.. Popular belief is this is a referendum on the production of Brandon Lloyd and his no catch perfromance Sunday coming off his lackluster '06 season.. Lloyd did speak to reporters today and said the right things saying there needs to be no clarification of roles and that "anyone the team brings in to help us win games is good."
Obviosuly though, this move would affect Lloyd's playing status more then any other current WR, Moss is the #1, Randle-El (while not the prototypical) the #2 and James Thrash is a special teamer that won't see fewer reps..
Lloyd did point out that the Skins had been signing receivers all summer, (Todd Pinkston and Corey Bradford, looked at Keenan McCardell as well) but this one has a more potential impact on his playing status week to week.. This might get real interesting..
Meantime Jason Campbell balked at a question regarding the two interceptions he threw pointing out the 2nd one (to Lloyd) was a one on one play that "you would hope the receiver would either catch or break up." True that..

Meantime Shawn Springs said he and coach Joe Gibbs spoke and that they are on the same page regarding his playing time last week.. Springs said the only reason his hamstring was warrped last week was because sometimes veterans do that after they lift weights.. He contends he is healthy.. The team has yet to place him on an injury report and Secondary coach Jerry Gray spoke of the decision to use Springs as the #3 CB based on precaution..
Springs joked that all the attention he's receiving has ruined "my good gig here." Transaltion Big salary, few plays isn't such a bad thing.. Lets hope he really is kidding..
I saw Les Carpenter on Washington Post Live on Comcast yesterday and he said that Springs has a hole in his hamstring, something that happened while he was playing in Seattle.. Interesting..

CB Byron Westbrook has been asked by the coaching staff to emulate brother Bryon in practice this week.. Westbrook said he was with Bryon the last couple of days and didn't reveal any team secrets even though Bryon asked about a couple of injured players..

LB Marcus Washington said he felt a "few tweaks" in his elbow during the first game of the season but didn't feel as if it limited him at all..

Held out of practice on Thursday was DE Phillip Daniels (foot), S Vernon Fox (groin) and S Pierson Prioleau (hamstring)..

OK men..

First, thank you for the blog. I really enjoy reading it even if you won't speak to your adoring fans.

Second, since I've found this blog I have wondered what the significance is behind the "ok men..." sign off. Could you elaborate?

Charley Taylor is a bigger threat on the field these days than Lloyd. He'd be gone in a New York second if they didn't have so much invested in him.

It's "Brian" Westbrook. And, the green dot on the helmet denotes that it is a QB's helmet and thus needs to have the coach-QB communication ability.

The OK men sign off is homage to Steve Spurrier who used to end all his media sessions with us with "OK men." Of course it doesn't quite translate unless you add the southern twang..

Thanks for the kudos and appreciate the feedback!!

Ok men..
