Random notes around the NFC East: Kiwi likely to DE, Dwayne Harris’ YAC, some notes on DeSean, and a Redskins regression?

Redskins

• Rich Tandler of RealRedskins put his speculation hat on and wondered if RG3 will be ready to practice a lot sooner than we all think, based on the low number of QBs currently on the Redskins roster. Rich is careful to note several disclaimers (such as the Redskins adding another QB sometime between now and training camp), but he poses an interesting thought/observation nevertheless.

• Rich also put up an interesting post on the history of teams going from bad records (7-9 or worse) to 10 or more wins the next season. The 2011/2012 Redskins would apply here. Historically, in the third year, it’s very likely that the team will regress.

Giants

• Amani Toomer said that the holdouts of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are a direct result of the Giants’ handling of stev smit (yes, that’s spelled correctly). Ed from BBV does a good job calling BS on that one.

• According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN, Adrian Tracy was getting reps with the 1′s at Giants OTAs with Justin Tuck and JPP out. Ohm also noted that Mathias Kiwanuka is “likely” to move back to DE, as many have suggested.

Eagles

• Tommy rounded up a bunch of articles on DeSean Jackson and added his own thoughts.

• I’ll be back down at the NovaCare Complex today for the Eagles’ 3rd and final minicamp practice. Recaps of Day 1 and Day 2 can be found here and here.

Cowboys

• The Cowboys signed Eric Frampton. Frampton was of course part of the fearsome Cowboys defense Week 17 last year that included Brian Schaefering, Dan Connor, Ernie Sims, Alex Albright, Brady Poppinga, and Charlie Peprah.

• My boy Archie over at BtB wrote about WR Dwayne Harris. Archie notes that Harris is good after the catch, and I agree. Harris averaged 13.1 yards per catch last season, 6.4 of which came after the catch. Harris actually averaged more yards after the catch than Dez Bryant, who had several long catch and run TDs last year.

    According to Sal,

    Vick is the front runner for the starting spot according to “some coaches and players”
    Also Foles was 1-5 as a starter, “they’ve tried that” no point going back there
    Barkley is “not ready to be inserted into a pro style offense”

    So we’d be screwed if sal knew what he was talking about.

    1. Jimmy Kempski says:

      Foles being 1-5 is irrelevant, in my opinion, when he was playing with 1/5 of the starting OL, no McCoy, no DeSean for a few games, and a defense that couldn’t stop anybody.

      As for Sal, I have a very hard time believing his info is good. Could some players think Vick is the guy? Sure, but players are often a terrible source of information. As for the coaching staff, they have gone WAY out of their way not to reveal any kind of leader for any position on the entire roster. “Open competition” has been the coaching staff’s primary theme. If they think Vick is the guy, they sure a funny way of showing it. Vick could use all the reps he can get, and yet, they’re giving more to Foles.

      1. WIll says:

        I agree on Foles. Also I find it interesting how the national media refuses to believe there is an actual QB competition.

  27. WeGotLinemen says:

    I love the Redskins but they don’t have a great roster at the moment. It’s not a bad one, but it will be another couple of years before were fully clear of the Cerrato era.

    We’ve got some good pieces, but depth is an issue. Some ‘Skins fans think Haslett did a good job after the bye-week last year. I tend to think he did the job he failed to do in the previous two and half years. It was an improvement, but an improvement in the same way as a half-full glass of water is better than an empty one to a thirsty man. It was something, but still some way short of what that you’re really hoping for.

    There were a lot of close games last year. There are every season. Last year more of them were wins,. Still, it would not have taken much to change that 10-6 record into 7-9. Then again, a few wins got left on the table last year as well.

    This year we could go anything from 6-10 to 12-4 because we are now in that parity mix. We’ve got proper grown-ups running things now. We’re not doomed to finish with a losing record but we’re not guaranteed a winning one either. Not yet anyway.

  28. “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer” is a catchphrase and aphorism sometimes evoked, with variations in wording, when discussing economic inequality . Its most common use is as a synopsis of a socialist criticism of the free market system ( capitalism ), implying the inevitability of what Karl Marx called the Law of Increasing Poverty.

    1. Gary says:

      Great point.

    2. ATG says:

      This is the kind of benchmarking information that Jimmy’s articles so often lack.

  29. Mike says:

    Of course Harris would average more than Dez. He was thrown to less than Dez.
    Compare him to someone who had the same amount of catches.

  30. On the redskins win total jump regression… How many of the previous teams’ jumps were (almost solely) the result of finding their franchise QB?

    1. NYG_Slater says:

      I was interested in this too. You would think teams that found a Franchise QB would buck the trend. The article uses data on 29 teams that had a jump from 7-9 (or worse) to 10 or 10+ wins the following year. 26 of those teams regressed in year 3 (the new QB’s 2nd year), while 3 did not. Surprisingly, finding your franchise qb doesnt mean you buck the trend. The falcons, ravens, Giants, Bucs all regressed (Matt ryan, Joe Flacco, Eli Manning, Josh Freeman) during their new QB’s 2nd year of full time duty.

      I may have missed a few cases, I just quickly scanned the list.

      1. Tom says:

        2nd year starting QB’s often struggle. Defenses study their film and gameplan to take away what they like to do/did well during their first year as starters. Good ones adjust and become less predictable. Bad ones just fade away. It will be interesting to see what happens with RG3, Kaepernick, Wilson and even Luck this year.

    2. NYG_Slater says:

      However, of the 3 teams who did not regress and bucked the trend. Aaron Rodgers and Big Ben were responsible for 2 of those teams. So, finding your franchise QB is a significant factor for bucking the year 3 regression, it’s just hardly guaranteed, as the giants, falcons, bucs and ravens showed.

      and yes, josh freeman being a franchise qb is very debatable.

      1. horatius says:

        Eli Manning took his sweet time growing up. So, his second year is more of an anomaly. Nobody will dispute that he is a franchise QB, but his growth was slower than some of the newer franchise QBs.

        1. brisulph says:

          Very much slowed… so much so that the first year he won the Super Bowl as Giants QB the fans were ready to send him packing as late as week 16.

  31. Sean G says:

    What, no Frampton Comes Alive joke?

  32. Mandmeisterx says:

    Frampton was a demon on teams. He and Dunbar forced an unbelievable number of fair catches. Well, them and Brian Moorman’s short punting.

    1. Jimmy Kempski says:

      Ha

  33. Thiergow says:

    Toomer clarified on Twitter saying that he wasn’t saying the Giants were wrong when they decided to withdraw their offer. I think he meant that Nicks & Cruz are doing whatever they can to get a contract now to avoid following stev smit’s path.
