Latest Danny Smith Items
Add current Steelers and former Redskins special teams coach Danny Smith to the list the Redskins would like to speak to about their head coaching job.
For all the agony Smith puts his vocal chords through on the practice field, it never deserts him when he's got a whistle around his neck and a football in his hands. Then, almost magically, the rasp is replaced by a steady roar that thunders off the dormitories at Saint Vincent College.
With longtime special teams coach Danny Smith and captain Lorenzo Alexander gone, it's up to new coach Keith Burns to rearrange the remaining pieces for the Redskins.
Brandon Banks spent part of his bye week in the film room with Danny Smith because something is not right. The Washington Redskins' return specialist has not been the explosive player he showed flashes of being in the past. Banks says he's carrying a right hip injury that likely will require surgery in the offseason – but that's not the whole problem.
Lorenzo Alexander has heard fan criticism directed toward special teams coordinator Danny Smith this week after the Washington Redskins had punts blocked in each of their first two games.
There have been 23 blocked field goals and extra points in the NFL this season. The Washington Redskins account for five of those.
Sav Rocca has been one of the Washington Redskins' most effective players this season.
Brandon Banks sat at his locker and shook his head, thinking about the difference between this season and last year's breakout campaign, when he emerged as the Washington Redskins' threat-to-break-a-long-one returner.
The chaos of covering a kickoff return is a beautiful thing to Lorenzo Alexander. Maybe that's because, to him, it's not chaos at all.
