CHARLOTTESVILLE — Clint Sintim appeared beyond the end zone of Scott Stadium earlier this month with a freshly shaved head. One can interpret the haircut as an act of vanity. It might just be an act of deception.This StoryGroomed for SuccessAt a GlanceScheduleOffensive Depth Chart (PDF)Defensive Depth Chart (PDF)View All Items in This StoryView Only Top Items in This StoryThe linebacker is among a group of Virginia defenders bound to command more attention. With the departure of all-American and No. 2 NFL draft choice Chris Long from last season’s surprising 9-4 squad, Sintim undoubtedly will become a focal point of offensive coordinators’ scouting reports.Sintim is aware of the newfound attention. The new haircut was not specifically part of the plan to combat the onus that falls on the linebacker, but it is nonetheless symbolic."That was just a spur of the moment," said Sintim, who elected the new look while sitting in class this summer. He then went to roommate and starting safety Byron Glaspy for the cut and quickly determined it is not something he wants to make permanent.Either way, Sintim is bound for recognition. He enters his fourth season as a starting outside linebacker for Coach Al Groh’s 3-4 defense, a system that Groh insists Sintim is ideally suited to play.”The defense fits him to the T; he fits the defense to the T,” Groh said. “He can play with power, play with space, is a good pass defender.”A touted defensive end recruit out of Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge, Sintim was recruited by most colleges to play the line for traditional 4-3 base defenses. Groh watched Sintim play defensive end and tight end and saw skills that would easily translate into his system. As an outside linebacker in the 3-4, Sintim can utilize his push-rushing abilities while maintaining the freedom to roam the field.In 2007, Sintim was fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference with nine sacks, which ranked tops among linebackers, yet he also registered 77 tackles.”It’s the perfect system for me,” Sintim said. “It gives the perfect versatility.”New defensive coordinator Bob Pruett watched Sintim in high school when Pruett was the head coach at Marshall. Pruett once coached Gar-Field and immediately realized the type of player Sintim could become. Pruett viewed Sintim as a fit in any defense, although Sintim said he would not have been able to cover the pass as a linebacker in a 4-3 defense when he arrived at school.Seeing Sintim now, Pruett is most impressed with the off-the-field intangibles that become particularly significant in Long’s absence.”What I see Kory Lichtensteiger Jersey is the great leadership, the great knowledge of the game,” Pruett said. “He is so much more advanced than a younger player. He understands completely when he gives the answer.”Jon Copper, a fellow redshirt senior who starts beside Sintim as a middle linebacker, witnessed the development of those attributes. Copper said Sintim lacked such qualities when he first arrived in Charlottesville but has worked to develop them since.Glaspy, who has been close to Sintim since they arrived on the campus, has witnessed similar development over the past four years.”When he first got here, he was a little lazy; he was out of shape. In the team runs in conditioning, he wasn’t always able to do it,” Glaspy said. “Something happened to that guy where he became real hungry, and nfl Kory Lichtensteiger Jersey nike Redskins authentic Kory Lichtensteiger Red White Gold Jerseys he became one of the hardest workers on the team and nike Redskins authentic Kory Lichtensteiger Red White Gold Jerseys he just made it.”Glaspy credits Sintim’s close friendship with Long as a catalyst for his maturation.Groh views the leadership evolution as a product of a design. He said the coaches have a list of underclassmen who show the potential to emerge as leaders. A player must have a natural inclination to take on that role, Groh said, and he must have the respect of teammates. Like the mantle passed from Long to Sintim, it will continue down the line.”You just don’t suddenly tap a guy on the shoulder after they’ve been here for three or four years and say, ‘Okay, next year, you’re our leader,’ ” Groh said. “They have to grow into that role.”So it is that Sintim has the chance to take on the increased responsibility both on the football field and in the locker room. The departure of Long has the potential of reverberating either positively or negatively, depending on how players such as Sintim respond.As should happen, Sintim has improved every season in Charlottesville. Now entering his final season, he will command attention more than ever.A haircut will not help him sidestep the spotlight. Sintim has no choice but to embrace it.”You’ve been in the program for so long,” Sintim said, “you want to establish [yourself] as someone who they can depend on.”» This Story:Read | Comments#botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the Sports SectionTerrapins InsiderGet the latest updates on Maryland basketball and football.Recruiting InsiderJosh Barr keeps you in the loop on the local and national prep talent.D.C.

With their would-be Super Bowl season well on its way to unraveling completely, the Minnesota Vikings fired Brad Childress as their coach on Monday and named defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier interim coach for the remainder of the season.Frazier quickly announced that Brett Favre would remain the Vikings’ starter at quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field."The one thing I’m hoping that all of our players recognize is that we can only do what we can do going forward," Frazier said at a news conference. "And that means our focus and our attention has to be on the Washington Redskins, period. Anything else is really inconsequential to what we have to achieve as a group."Frazier said he had "no hesitation" keeping Favre as the starting quarterback.Favre said after Sunday’s 31-3 defeat at home to the Green Bay Packers, his former team, that he would re-evaluate his status. Some media members have called for the Vikings to turn to Favre’s backup, Tarvaris Jackson.The coaching move came a day after the lopsided loss to the Packers dropped the Vikings’ record to 3-7."We just felt that moving forward, nfl Leonard Hankerson Jersey nike Redskins authentic Leonard Hankerson Red White Gold Jerseys this is what the best thing was for the organization," Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said.Childress became the second NFL coach fired this season, following the Dallas Cowboys’ Wade Phillips. Childress called his time with the Vikings "a tremendous experience."In a written statement released by the team, Childress said: "I have a great respect for the players and coaches who I have worked with and for their dedication to each other and to the organization. I am proud of our accomplishments and believe the foundation of this football team is stronger today than when I became head coach in 2006. I appreciate the opportunity that Zygi, Mark, and the whole Wilf family afforded me and wish them success as they move forward."Childress was in his fifth season with the Vikings and had a record of 39-35 in the regular season and 1-2 in the playoffs. The team reached the NFC title game last season but lost in overtime at New Orleans. Last November, the Vikings signed Childress to a contract extension that reportedly runs through the 2012 season with a team option for the 2013 season.The Vikings had aspirations to go a step further and reach the Super Bowl this season, particularly after convincing Favre to put off another retirement and return to the team for a second season. But little has gone the Vikings’ way. Favre has 10 touchdown nike Redskins authentic Leonard Hankerson Red White Gold Jerseys passes and 17 interceptions and is the league’s 32nd-rated passer.Childress was critical of Favre’s three-interception performance after a loss at Green Bay earlier this season. There were reports of friction between Childress and Favre, which Favre addressed by saying he didn’t always have to agree with his coach. An increasing number of reports in recent weeks indicated that other Vikings players lacked confidence in Childress.Another report described a heated practice-field argument between Childress and Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin. The team’s fans took to calling for Childress’s ouster.The Vikings surrendered a third-round draft choice in a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss this season, but Moss was released after playing only four games for the team. There was speculation after Moss was waived that Wilf might dismiss Childress then over his dissatisfaction with Childress’s handling of the matter.A triumph over the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 7 may have Leonard Hankerson Jersey saved Childress’s job temporarily, but the Vikings followed that win with losses to the Chicago Bears and Packers.#botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the Redskins SectionRedskins InsiderNews updates, poll questions and exlusive analysis of the Redskins.Tailgate ZoneA discussion group that invites fans to debate all matters burgundy and gold.Insider PodcastPost reporters and editors discuss and dissect the team’s ups and downs.
GOLFWoods to return to therapy after statementTiger Woods is to return to therapy after he speaks publicly for the first time about his infidelity, according to a letter from PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem that was obtained by The Associated Press.Finchem’s letter to the PGA Tour policy board and other officials explained why Woods chose Friday to make his first public comments, which are to be televised live by all the major networks."As we understand it, Tiger’s therapy called for a week’s break at this time during which he has spent a few days with his children and then will make his statement before returning," Finchem said in a letter Thursday. "Accordingly, there was very little flexibility in the date for the announcement."The Aldrick Robinson Jersey letter shed no light on whether Woods plans to return to the tour anytime soon.Three networks — ABC, CBS and NBC — will carry the statement live. ESPN will have it live on all its platforms. The Golf Channel will start coverage at 10:30 a.m. — call it a 30-minute pregame show.Meanwhile, the Golf Writers Association of America’s board of directors voted overwhelming not to participate as pool reporters Friday when Woods issues his first public statement in nearly three months."I cannot stress how strongly our board felt that this should be open to all media and also for the opportunity to question Woods," said Vartan Kupelian, president of the 950-member group. "The position, simply put, is all or none. This is a major story of international scope. To nfl Aldrick Robinson Jersey nike Redskins authentic Aldrick Robinson Red White Gold Jerseys limit the ability of journalists to attend, listen, see and question Woods goes against the grain of everything we believe."Lee Westwood, Jim Furyk, Martin Kaymer and Rory McIlroy — seeded second through fifth nike Redskins authentic Aldrick Robinson Red White Gold Jerseys entering the tournament — were among the losers in the second round of the often-unpredictable Match Play Championship in Marana, Ariz.Defending champion Geoff Ogilvy was beaten by Colombian Camilo Villegas 2 and 1.

Roethlisberger is wary of playingAccording to the NFL Network, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is considering nfl Kai Forbath Jersey nike Redskins authentic Kai Forbath Red White Gold Jerseys sitting Kai Forbath Jersey out Sunday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.A decision is to be made Saturday, according to the league’s television channel.Roethlisberger suffered a concussion during last Sunday’s 27-24 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.According to the NFL Network, Roethlisberger told Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin that he has concerns about being hit in the head so soon after suffering a concussion.Tomlin announced Tuesday that Roethlisberger had passed neurological tests Monday.With veteran backup Charlie Batch sidelined after undergoing surgery for a broken wrist, Dennis Dixon would be in line to start the game at quarterback for the Steelers if Roethlisberger doesn’t play.Dixon has thrown one regular season pass in the NFL.Benson back for BengalsCincinnati tailback Cedric Benson participated in the Bengals’ practice Friday and could return to the lineup this weekend.He missed last Sunday’s surprising 20-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders because of a hip injury."I thought he was close to being able to play last week and obviously he’s ready to play now," Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis said, according to the team’s Web site."I don’t have any doubts that he’s ready to play."Expletive aired on TVJosh McDaniels, the rookie head coach for the Denver Broncos, demonstrated plenty of exuberance on the sideline during Thursday night’s 26-6 victory over the visiting New York Giants — a little too much for the NFL Network, in fact.An expletive used by McDaniels during a sideline lecture to his players in the second quarter was picked up by the league-owned television channel during its broadcast of the game.Viewers could hear the expletive yelled by McDaniels at his players on the sideline after the Broncos committed three false start penalties and had to settle for a field goal following a first-and-goal opportunity.The NFL Network issued an on-air apology after returning from a commercial.Colts elevate C. PolianThe Indianapolis Colts announced that they’ve promoted Chris Polian to vice president and general manager.Polian, the son of team president Bill Polian, had been the Colts’ vice president of football operations."Chris has been involved in every aspect of our football operations for the past 12 years," Colts owner Jim Irsay said in a written statement. "His direct contributions are part of the reasons why the Colts have been among the league’s top teams for an extended period of time. Chris is a very talented individual who has worked his way through the ranks, and we are pleased to have him serve in this position."Historically, the Colts have been an organization to promote internally, and I feel this will allow the club the best opportunity to continue competing at the level we have sustained for the past few seasons."Chris Polian joined the Colts in 1998 as their director of pro scouting. He was promoted nike Redskins authentic Kai Forbath Red White Gold Jerseys to assistant director of football operations in 2001 and to assistant general manager in 2004, then was named vice president of football operations in 2005.– Mark Maske/* BEGIN TOP STRIP STYLES */#customTS-SingleThumbBlog width:454px;margin-bottom:6px;padding-bottom:6px;font:11px Arial;border-bottom:solid 1px #CCC;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog p margin:0;padding:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:link, #customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:visited text-decoration:none;font-weight:bold;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog a:hover text-decoration:underline;color:#C00;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .redkicker font-weight:bold;color:#C00;margin-bottom: 4px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .thumbSlot float:left;width:80px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog .textSlot float:right;width:368px;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog ul padding:0;list-style-type:none;font-weight:bold;margin:0;#customTS-SingleThumbBlog li background-image:url(http://media.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/images/bullet_3x3_999999.gif);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-position:0px .4em;padding-left:6px;padding-bottom:2px; Latest Posts From NFL News Feed More Posts | Sports Blog Directory #botPromoStrip background: #fff url(‘http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/sports/longterm/2007/photo/gray624.jpg’) no-repeat; padding: 7px 10px; margin: 5px 0 10px 0;More in the NFL SectionThe LeagueA conversation about what’s happening today in the NFL.NFL News FeedMark Maske keeps you up-to-date with all of the latest news in the NFL.Redskins InsiderJason Reid provides exlusive analysis of the Redskins.
Reserve running back Ladell Betts suffered a mildly sprained left knee during the Washington Redskins’ 19-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and the team will audition former league MVP Shaun Alexander as a potential replacement.This StoryRedskins Will Hold Audition For PunterRedskins Notebook: With Betts Out, Former MVP Will Get LookSmoot Hosts Tour of Great Falls MansionRedskins Unrestricted: Oct. 13View All Items in This StoryView Only Top Items in This StorySources with knowledge of the situation said it appears the injury, which was confirmed by an MRI exam, will sideline Betts for about two weeks. Earlier yesterday, Zorn said the team was planning to be without Betts for at least one week.Alexander, who won the MVP award and the rushing title while leading the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl in the 2005-06 season, will visit the Redskins today, according to team and league sources. The 31-year-old free agent has strong ties to Zorn and running backs coach Stump Mitchell from their time together in Seattle. Alexander was released by the Seahawks in April following several injuries and consecutive unproductive seasons.Meantime, Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels has a mild nike Bears authentic Corey Wootton Navy Orange White Jerseys knee sprain and did not have an MRI. The team hopes that, with rest this week, he will be able to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.As for who will start opposite Samuels at right tackle against Cleveland, Zorn and the coaches could have a tough decision between Jon Jansen or Stephon Heyer once Heyer’s shoulder is healthy. Heyer, who has missed the past two games, does not yet have sufficient strength in his shoulder, Zorn said.Kelly Still in DoubtRookie wide receiver Malcolm Kelly’s status nfl Corey Wootton Jersey nike Bears authentic Corey Wootton Navy Orange White Jerseys remains in doubt as well. He has been injured essentially since the first week of camp and had his knee drained twice last week.Zorn said the team will have to decide in the next few weeks whether to put Kelly on injured reserve, which would end his season and give the team a chance to add a wide receiver who could contribute."It’s a risk," Zorn said, citing Kelly’s "potential," but also the need for complementary receiving options. Zorn again cited the lack of productivity in Kelly and fellow rookie wide receiver Devin Thomas as problematic. . . .Safety Reed Doughty’s nerve problems in his back persist, and he is experiencing numbness in his foot. That doesn’t bode well for him playing, and he didn’t practice at all last week, either. . . .Safety Chris Horton has a low ankle sprain, and Zorn said he thinks the rookie will be fine. Same with wide receiver James Thrash, who has a mild knee sprain. Cornerback Fred Smoot (groin) is also expected to be all right.Torrence TalksCornerback Leigh Torrence, who was covering St. Louis wide receiver Donnie Avery on the key 43-yard pass play that set up the winning field goal, was involved in a sideline shouting match with Jim Haslett, the Rams’ interim head coach.”It was something where there were two guys on me,” Torrence said yesterday. “They were saying things, and I got up and there were people who were saying things, and we got into it.

BreakdownAtlanta at Cincinnati,1 p.m.7-0Bengals’ home record against NFC teams under Coach Marvin LewisFalcons Paris Lenon Jersey CB DeAngelo Hall, the supremely confident former Virginia Tech star, made an impression on loquacious Bengals WR Chad Johnson when they locked horns in the last Pro Bowl.”Chad nfl Paris Lenon Jersey nike Lions authentic Paris Lenon Blue White Black Jerseys actually pulled me aside and said nike Lions authentic Paris Lenon Blue White Black Jerseys I was the first guy to say something back to him in two years,” Hall told reporters of their matchup in that game. “I guess I earned some respect from him for that.”But now that it means something, Johnson is turning it up. Despite Coach Marvin Lewis’s pleas to tone it down, No. 85 promised to score two touchdowns today. Johnson even made use of the NFL’s Hispanic Heritage Month to translate his jersey number, albeit poorly, into another shot at Hall: “Every time we see each other in the offseason, on radio shows and TV shows, he continues to talk and talk all the time,” Johnson said Wednesday. “He’s not usually into talking. That’s not his game. He can’t do what ‘ocho cinco’ does.”"Ochenta y cinco” might get some help. Talented but troubled WR Chris Henry is eligible to play after a two-game suspension. He practiced Wednesday, but Lewis would not say whether he would play today.
