CSN Washington dot com. What is He doing in practices or does it take a shot at a -- practice of medicine and again that's what they're not concerned about that's not gonna work in the post and you know regular season. -- mean -- -- kind they run every route possible practicing. I think you're gonna see them do it more downfield in Baltimore. Is it was explained it was it is Indianapolis. -- their home markets recovered again ethically people. If you do anything defensively there are totally. That's please. It's worth -- -- -- if Rex threw it up to move more. Without success but it. And Rex did take those shots -- objected. That's for a Vanilla. People call -- big game. I kind of I think though it's not a game it's important and see certain things well with -- the Ravens bringing a non Vanilla defense in the pre season we expect to see what we look we -- from out. Well this is all but individual performances at this point is they're pre season game generally is your last roster -- so -- extra count so far away. Quarterback's perspective about Baltimore perspective their partner for some of their race stuff because they got a what they got it so. It's going to be a test for the Redskins offensive line who gave up three sacks the first half last week travelers -- like -- where roller skates for a couple minutes but. It's what John -- Rex Grossman. No because you look for some preparation and make that decision easy right now they've made -- probably added that He. No individual basis -- it correctly. Whether the scores for enough for him enough and our way or the right way do we take anything out of it positively or negatively well. Former Redskins for -- perspective what you take out of it is are the efficiently. On defense are they stopping the -- I think getting off the field after third down. On offense are -- able to convert on third down. Are they able to score touchdowns in the red zone sensitive to those are two for six the starters are these first two games so. You look at look at in team aspects but apartment and while also ignoring the scoreboard -- that makes. Well do you think if necessary to have hightower played all I mean let alone on a limited basis but me personally I just don't think -- should be in the game -- seen enough evidence that that's our. I think he's done enough -- -- show -- what you can do for. Right -- why -- get you get into that you're getting double edged sword category because you can say that about London Fletcher a very popular defense. -- the offensive lineman. If things go well this week I don't think you see any of those guys in the fourth -- -- -- that this third pre season games that you want to stretch out a little bit because. We'll throw a hypothetical the analysts say Tim Hightower since you brought him up does not plan on this game which He preached I got to play through three quarters. Maybe she's gonna go nearly double plan my reaction when He got to get him in there to keep them sharp. And again I think in the ravens' defense you know give them a lot more respect and pretty much deserve. That they can hurt the guy I mean freak accidents can happen for him as well but He somebody's performance of April back and forth game it's going to be a little lighter. Let him get a couple reps and but let's don't take chances with. You know the Runyan at this point. Yeah I don't know it's going to be. Important season I can see that and it -- so if you look at it -- I think He plays this week but then in the fourth pre season game they have to get a look around her yet so. That's I think that's what their game plans going to be as you get hightower did you get him his reps and those other guys. At any that you just get ready for September 11. With a plethora of wide receivers out there fight for what six positions and who you think it's on the bubble -- do you think Malcolm Kelly will have an opportunity either show himself. We're really just be cut well. Yeah I agree with you they're gonna keep six that's what history suggest. The way the roster is constructed. I think five guys are locks Maas Gaffney are -- your top three. Anderson has had a great camp and cameras put him through waivers so He makes the team I think Donte' Stallworth can help this team so that leaves one spot for all those guys. He Niles Paul I think He may be an outside of the community -- who has had a solid camp and so it's it's it's going to be a tough decision but as far as Malcolm. -- it would it would be a miracle to. I would hate to see a guy like -- not it was so at least we can do this season because he's the prototypical that wide receiver. What you hate to see him you cut knowing that maybe if you were somewhat. You know not injured her -- show something. But the Andersen deal. That guy is is it possible that He could put on -- mean of the money that He could you make as a rookie could He be put on the practice squad well. I think I think -- -- as much because of the money but because he's a third round pick. And the that the the physical ability is there so if you're a team that's rebuilding with the Carolina list is short receiver. They approach they would be first up on the waiver claim list and they'll say okay he's had a bad camp but He scored touchdowns in college that's the perimeter let's take a chance. So I didn't -- -- Texas a lot about job you know it means -- but but but but what are are we don't hear you ripping guys night. Other units accurate. But but here's the thing that we -- streak with a potential every person of the league mean. Potential is what got them totally like that's what Malcolm Kelly was able to survive a year yeah I mean now with Malcolm. It's his goal should be his goal and coming in the camp. Was should have been sure enough on tape. So He can latch on -- like -- Devin Thomas the with the Giants had. Pagers on the reserve him and injury let it develop his skills He can implement practice what -- could lose writes about the money to make him. Yes basically -- one of the Ravens. It takes that's for sure particularly. What the oh. Well it's always you know. This is. We look at us yet this game when we wanna -- I asked -- what don't we want us yet game what is -- consistency. Inconsistencies I think having. What's the main thing we just don't wanna see what comes -- idealized GA -- profound Frontline guys who wants it handers and get you know knock on whether it's it's been. Pretty fortunate so far. But I think going back to we talked voter is if you wanna see all three phases that this -- circuit rate they're ready for the regular season and that is on offense doing things they did the last two weeks plus punched -- for touchdowns. -- defense they're kids they're slowly but surely getting guys back because fortunate time we're back Thursday night. See how they mesh together and on special teams. It's Terrence Austin your punt returner do you staff rendering of banks on injured reserve. Exactly -- things for me that I just don't want to go in Ecstasy. From my back I don't wanna see him not take shots down the field I want to see Kellen Clemens and with the first team especially if you think it's kind of went -- this guy who -- -- -- -- in the week. -- -- doesn't get an opportunity to play with other first team was or at least person to have team at least for the first of the offense like him some targets throughout games protection on there. Oh are there any sleepers who's this year's Q and will and Williams to. Well it's. They're probably LA. If you were sleepers this year and last year who would -- Q -- Brandon Banks will be impossible making the team might have to create its. With more draft picks this year that limits the chances for street guys. I look at a guy like Brandon Thompson who corner from Boise State had interceptions last week. And when Jim -- praises you without being asked about you. That means you are presently coaches so I have had making the 53 man roster because so few -- -- the start the year on this -- over Westbrook. I have five quarters into the team and what for a while Westbrook Barnes and -- your reserves with Wilson and all your starters so that's the big one see what you can do. And I've still thrown Niles Paul and you know he's a draft pick them. This guy doesn't drop any passes so maybe He can -- his way in there or if an injury arises He makes the team all sports excellence we've got coming up with season. Well posted this -- first it took a stab at the 53 man roster. Thankfully it's kids that are generated some comments on Twitter. Mostly just slamming me which is but. And then we'll have -- full game preview to. Our -- and obviously over coverage on the authors and it okay. Ryan Howard -- -- and beat writer for the Redskins. -- -- Watch fox laps and you by Washington times we'll see you tomorrow. Thanks for coming. CSN Washington dot com.
