I don't want to make this a DT-bashing post, but I just read the RI, and something jumped out at me. The reason I'm bringing it up is because it is not the 1st time I've heard stuff like this. If you haven't seen it yet, here's what I'm referring to:
"If you notice, every day he stays out after practice and works on things that need to be worked, that he didn't do well in practice," he said. "And he stays out there; Marko's always out there and Malcolm's always out there, working on things. --Redskins Insider
Notice the missing component? I have picked up on plenty of snippets this offseason similar to this. Most of them mentioned just Campbell and Kelly, so I chalked it up to them having a closer relationship. But now that Marko is included, it leads me to wonder why Devin Thomas isn't working out with them as well? This goes back to my prior comments about him seeming to have that "I've arrived" attitude, and therefor thinking the rest should be handed to him. It's funny, because my buddy and I were just talking about Marko Mitchell's comments yesterday:
"If you ain't first, you're last. So right now I'm last," Mitchell said. "I'm trying to get up there to No. 1 hopefully. ..... I can't just stop right there. I need to elevate myself in the regular season." --Marko Mitchell via Redskins Insider
Now granted, Mitchell was a 7th rounder and
somewhat of a surprise, but I think ALL young, UNPROVEN players should have this attitude, and I just don't see it in Thomas. Hopefully I'm wrong.
