Early in camp this appeared to be a no-brainer. He looked quick off the ball and was flashing in practice. But the longer camp went the less we saw of Wynn. And until Thursday night he hadn't been that noticeable in games. He played the run well last night. Also, remember, when he was cut the last time he actually looked decent in that camp.
But Rob Jackson is much younger, obviously, and that will be a factor. So, too, is the development of Jeremy Jarmon. If the Redskins think Jarmon can play the run well as a backup to Phillip Daniels, then Wynn is in trouble.
Before Thursday night we would have put him on the roster. There is truth to the Vinny's Guys scenario and he would qualify as one. But how many fumbles can one man have? It's unreal how many times he dropped the ball during practices. He has not earned a spot. If the Redskins want a change-of-pace back then they could opt for Dominique Dorsey. Marcus Mason offers something they already have: a tough between-the-tackles runner.
He has not earned a spot, either. But he was the pet project this offseason and Jim Zorn raved about him today in the press conference. Have no idea why. Williams is easy to get off-balance. Ask yourself this: if he had to play, would you feel comfortable? Neith er would we.
Made a lot of plays Thursday; also made a lot of mistakes. Which matters more? But before Thursday he seemed headed for the cut line. Has that changed? Hard to say. We heard more praise for Darrel Young than Henson for much of camp.
Did he do enough? Chase Daniel has looked better running the offense as a rookie than Brennan did. But can he get better? Most pegged his ceiling to be that of a No. 3 quarterback. Brennan, on the other hand, has been a little harder to tame (he wasn't quite wild, just a bit more undisciplined in his techniques). However, he played a very nice game Thursday. He went through his progressions; felt the rush at the right times and made the proper reads. That should be enough.
