    Assuming Jones and Thompson can play September 12th, the Redskins should review waiver wire between now and September 4th, sign best RB &, if necessary, sign Pierre Thomas week 2. Scot made at least a half dozen great mid-season pick-ups last year; no reason why he shouldn’t continue his strong track record.

    I see no reason to give up a pick for an RB. Pierre Thomas or some promising younger player from the waiver wire should be fine.

    Wait until 4PM, August 30 (deadline to reduce to 75 players).

    Good article by Rich.

    The wringing of hands continues in Redskin nation.

    IMO the redskins should stand pat until all teams cut down to 53 and see if anyone worth a roster stop. Until I just do not see anyone out there worth making a move with.

    Here’s Mark Bullock on the running game vs the Jets:

    That run in particular is a promising sign for Washington. While it clearly has a lot of work still left to do, the running game is improving as the regular season gets closer. Jay Gruden and his coaching staff would be wise to settle on a starting combination at left guard and center this week ahead of the third preseason game so the they can begin to build cohesion as a unit. A settled starting group can begin to learn the tendencies of one another and help improve the consistency of a unit that struggled in run blocking last season.

    Rich – where has Silas Redd ended up? Thought he might be an option (knows the system, ran well when he had the chance before his ACL exploded)

      @celtics Redd is suspended for the season, violation of substance abuse policy.

        Redd is actually eligible for reinstatement after week 6

    Every season in recent memory has shown a nice stock is capable RBs after the final cuts. I expect this to not change this season.

    So who is ready for making the call to Ray Rice?
