Daily Slop: Suspension Helped Rambo Prioritize Life; Which Redskin are you Expecting Surprisingly Good Play From This Season?

Daily Collection of Redskins News From Around the Web



Thoughts and observations: Bacarri Rambo |
He played a more traditional free safety at Georgia so the adjustment for him to the Redskins’ scheme won’t be the same as, say, Phillip Thomas. While Thomas played in a similar scheme, it was not a similar role and he’ll have to learn how to play the deep middle vs. speedy receivers, and how to approach a ball carrier when in certain looks. That doesn’t mean Rambo has an edge overall, but he won’t have to make that particular adjustment. Thomas, though, probably has better instincts for the ball (though Rambo got his share of picks too – against higher competition) and I think he drives harder on the ball. It’s not as if Rambo is bad in this area, though. In fact, he’s not.

Which Redskin are you expecting surprisingly good play from this season?
With that in mind, which Redskins player do you think is going to contribute a lot more this season than conventional wisdom would suggest? Whether it’s a player bouncing back from injury, a rookie or young player taking his first opportunity and running with it, a veteran playing the role of unsung hero or something completely different, most fans have a few players that they really like for one reason or another, even if the facts don’t necessarily justify that hunch.

But people don't understand the primal impulses of an athlete: "Your survivor instinct kicks in. You're like, 'I'm a warrior. I'm a beast. I do all these things, I can push through adversity.'" He acknowledges that he needs to work on moderating that instinct. "If I had another incident like the Ngata hit, I'm out of the game. You pull yourself out at that point.
