December 12-- Collins smells things

Todd Collins first media session as Redskins starting quarterback began with someone asking him about whether he smells everything he touches.. He admitted to liking to take a whiff of footballs.. It ended with the lovely Diane Roberts of Fox 5 saying to him:
“That’s the most I heard you talk since you came here.”
TC: “That’s because you never asked.”
DR:” I didn’t know you had that much of an accent.” (He’s from Massachusetts)
TC: “I don’t have an accent. I think you have an accent.”

Jason Campbell has called him “weird.” Others want to know why he smells things so much.. Players were yelling “Rain man” while he was answering questions. It certainly was odd.. Joe Gibbs said practice wasn’t really any different with Collins under center other then to say, “We certainly miss Jason.” Collins did admit that a number of people have come out of the woodwork to congratulate him on his performance against the Bears, “some of them from when I played Pop Warner and others I don’t know.”

Injury report: WR James Thrash (ankle) took part in a full practice for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain almost a month ago.. He stayed after practice to work with the new QB, practice squader Jason Fife who has Hollywood worthy hair..
Those who did not participate in practice: Campbell (knee) obviously won’t play Sunday.. DE Phillip Daniels (knee) but Joe Gibbs thinks he will be OK.. CB John Eubanks (infected toe).. G Randy Thomas (elbow)
T Todd Wade did practice but is said not to be 100% yet dealing with a knee injury.. Stephon Heyer remains the starter at RT mainly based on a coaches decision..

WR Antwaan Randle-El worked some reps as the emergency third quarterback and will likely have that role for Sunday’s game against the Giants..

NYG injury report: All of these players did not practice on Wednesday: WR Plaxico Burress (ankle), S James Butler (hamstring), S Criag Dahl (ankle), CB Aaron Ross (hamstring), DE Michael Strahan (team decision), S Gibril Wilson (knee)

Joe Gibb said he doesn’t need to figure out the playoff scenarios because we the media would lay that out for him and that because of that, it will be impossible to ignore, but reminded everyone, none of it matters if they don’t beat the Giants.. Gibbs is 0-3 in NY against the Giants since his return falling by a combined scored of 75-17.. Two of the worst games his teams have played since his return came in the Meadowlands, 19-3 and 36-0 outcomes.. Gibbs did beat the Jets in NY earlier this year..

OK men..

Bram quick question? On in the multimedia archive section they have 3 videos of Sean Taylor posted. The teammate, the football player, and the one in memory of him. However there was one posted that is no longer their(the one i'm looking for may have only been posted on the home page), it had the music playing like the in memory one of him but it was longer and showed some of his best hits also, it may have been the tribute video played at the beginning of the Bills game. I wasnt at the game but if i remember correctly it was that one. Some friends and i were wondering where we could find it. Any help or if you could persuade them to put it back up as we/i think it is an awesome video and really want to have it to see and show some people. Thanks dave
