My Anthony Alridge mission

I want Anthony Alridge to make the team! The guy is blazing fast, and would give the offense a home run hitter, which they need, especially from the RB position. I see him as the 3rd string RB. Clinton would get the bulk of the carries, Ladell would get a decent amount (hopefully more than last year), and Aldridge would get 1-3.

It's been a while since CP scored on a long run. And Ladell is capable of breaking one, but both can be caught, I think. Ain't no one catching Aldridge if he breaks one.

So, my mission is to somehow help him make the team. I have no idea how I'm going to do this. But, to start off, I want to chronicle how he's doing in training camp, and hopefully, get him to give progress reports about how he's doing. Until then, since I'm not there, I'll have to rely on others.

In Matt Terl's Redskins Blog, he writes: Of the two little speed backs (the other being Dominique Dorsey who starred in the CFL), I'm finding myself slightly more impressed by Anthony Aldridge.

And The Warpath did a nice profile about him back when he first signed (with some past YouTube clips.)

Hopefully, I'll be able to scour for more nuggets and post them here as training camp progresses.

  1. I agreee. Keep Anthony Alridge. He used to be a WR as well so he can catch out of the backfield. Something close to a Kelvin Bryant or Joe Washington that this team has not had in a long time!. Keep Alridge, Keep Alridge!!
