Winslow disapoints skins

It's a game Kellen, but it's also a job. That means coming to work or a potential work interview ON TIME!!!! Goon.

This is a little off-topic, but it's one of my peeves...I get so tired of hearing stories from friends or seeing people that are habitually late to work. I used to work with this girl who averaged being 7 minutes to late to work every day. Some of the reasons for her lateness included: 1) she was hungry and had to stop at the drive thru 5 minutes before her shift was supposed to start, 2) a twig getting stuck in her car and her rolling around under the car looking for it for 15 minutes, 3) driving too fast on icy roads and skidding her car along a guard rail, and 4) the registers locking down at the 24-hour Wal-Mart and waiting the extra 20 minutes for them to get all the daily receipts counted so she could buy her items.

You can't wake up five minutes earlier? Do you hate your job so much that you just don't want to give those extra five minutes to "the man?" Either way, they pay your salary...if you value an income you should make the effort to be at work on time if not a little early.

If I were the Redskins, I'd pass on the kid too. I'd rather have someone who is obviously willing to put the effort into being on my team and learning the system.

BTW, if you're in the group of people I described, I have no sympathy for you if you get a lower performance review or get fired. It's your own dang fault.

I think Winslow has a lot of talent but he is a real tool. If he can clean up his act then he could be great. If not, he's just another bust.

The Redskins wouldn't have taken him anyway because of the Postons. The Arrington situation really put them off the Postons and signability is important and the Postons are know for holding off on contracts (Ian Gold and Orlando Pace).

Not a good sign from Winslow, but I'm sure some other team is happy that he'll slip past the Skins. Winslow may have already heard "nasty" things about Washington from his agent(s) and decided not to wear his good face to the meetings intentionally. I wouldn't put it past him.

Regardless, we all know the kid can play and someone will be "ecstatic......didn't expect him to fall that far.........rated #1 on our board." What a steal!

Personally, I wouldn't take him in the top 10. Has a TE EVER gone that high?
