    Comments Off on Roster gives peek at the Zorn Identity

    A look at the final roster for the Washington Redskins tells me that Jim Zorn is hoping for the best but preparing for the worst when it comes to the team’s offensive output in 2008. Zorn and company kept 24 offensive players and 26 defenders. They kept five wide receivers when most thought it was…

    Comments Off on Stirring a Frosty pot

    I have a moderate issue with former Redskins punter Derrick Frost complaining that the Redskins cut him just because Durant Brooks was a draft pick. He told Jason LaCanfora of the Post: “I feel like I was dealt with dishonestly. I want to thank Danny Smith for the three years he gave me here, and…

  5. Wade, Mason cut, all 10 picks make it

    Comments Off on Wade, Mason cut, all 10 picks make it

    This is going to be quick here as I’m on my way out the door to a wedding. As I mentioned earlier, all 10 draft picks made the final roster. The only one I had not making it was Rob Jackson, but he started off strong in the Hall of Fame game and continued to…

    Comments Off on Flashback Saturday: Skins and fans invade NYC

    You’re probably going to see “Polo Grounds” as the venue for this game and immediately your eyes will glaze over. But if you’ll stick with it, you’ll find a great story of a bunch of fans so geeked about their new team that droves of them got on a train and went to battle with…

  11. 53-man roster final prediction

    Comments Off on 53-man roster final prediction

    Cuts are coming soon; here is my final stab at who will make the Washington Redskins final 53-man roster Quarterback (3): Campbell, Collins, Brennan—This has been set for a while. Running back (4): Portis, Betts, Cartwright, Mason—At his Friday press conference, Zorn was noncommittal about Mason making it so he’s still on the bubble to…

  12. Jansen on the bubble?

    Aug 29, 2008, 8:57 PM EDT

    Comments Off on Jansen on the bubble?

    It has been pretty obvious to all who have watched the Washington Redskins this year that Jon Jansen has been struggling. It has been widely assumed, however, that Jansen would get some time in the regular season to work through his issues. Maybe, maybe not, according to Jim Zorn. The Redskins’ head coach said today…

    There isn’t a whole lot to recap about a very forgettable exhibition by the Washington Redskins last night, but here are a few leftovers: The Flavor Vanilla Jim Zorn and Jason Campbell both said that the Redskins haven’t been showing anything close to their full playbook during the preseason. This, of course, brings up the…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday—Moseley boots Giants

    I’ll be posting some Redskins-Giants classics over the next week leading up to the season opener on Thursday. This one from December 19, 1982 needs no introduction for the readers of this blog.

  19. Redskins-Jags fourth quarter

    Comments Off on Redskins-Jags fourth quarter

    –Justin Tryon with a couple of pass breakups. As I said before, I think his speed gets him a roster spot as a work in progress. –They’ve started a wave, which isn’t a very smart thing to do when your team has the ball. I can’t really blame them, though, since it probably was more…

    Comments Off on Redskins-Jags third quarter

    –Kelly is dressed in full pads, but he is not carrying a helmet, so it’s doubtful that he’s going to be able to play. –Frost boomed a punt 61 yards, but it got returned 37 by Bolton. Not enough hang time, the result a net of 24 yards. That won’t win you the job, but…

  21. Defensive coverage

    Comments Off on Defensive coverage

    Got a question from the Old Ref, I didn’t think it was directed towards a player, so I’ll give it a go: The gap between CB pass coverage and Safety coverage looks worrisome.  Reed Doughty is about 20 yards deep, and when the CBs turn coverage over to the Safety so that they can look…

    Note: –The CoveritLive software isn’t working. Actually, there isn’t enough bandwidth for it to work here at FedEx. I’m going to have to do this the old-fashioned way and update quarter by quarter or more frequently as events dictate. I’ll try to get this worked out for next week but, hey, it’s the preseason for…
