Your Tuesday morning open thread:
In a couple of days, the Redskins will face an opponent for the first time in seven months. They’ve added a handful of new faces in the meantime, including some touted rookies.
So here’s today’s question: Which rookie are you looking forward to watching most Thursday night against the Titans?
For me, it’s safety Bacarri Rambo. When the depth chart was released on Monday, he was the only rookie listed as a first teamer. It wasn’t a surprise, however. The sixth-round pick out of Georgia has been lining up as the first team free safety since the start of camp.
Rambo has obviously done enough to earn the coaching staff’s trust. But they've only seen him in practice, at practice tempo, against his teammates. They're certainly curious to see what he does at game speed, against NFL wide receivers like Nate Washington and Kenny Britt, etc.
Coach Mike Shanahan said the Redskins’ starters will likely only see 10-15 snaps in Nashville, though it's certainly possible Rambo will play longer. However much Rambo plays, given the team’s struggles in the secondary in 2012, you know his coaches are hoping he performs well and gains some all-important confidence in his pro debut.
Let me know who you’re looking forward to seeing in the comments.
