  1. The over under

    Comments Off

    The Las Vegas wins over/under line is out and the number for the Washington Redskins places them smack dab in the muddled middle of the NFL. Depending on where you want to plunk down your money, you can bet that the Redskins win total for 2008 will be more or fewer than 7.5 or eight.…

  3. Sellers: Players were treated like “little kids”

    While Jim Zorn may need to be careful and tiptoe around saying anything critical about Joe Gibbs’ coaching, it’s apparent that at least one Washington Redskins player doesn’t feel so restrained. Last week, when talking about the differences between how things are going this year as opposed to recent seasons, fullback Mike Sellers said, “We…

  4. James’ deal has two years left

    I made a mistake last night. Without checking, I reported something about the Washington Redskins that came directly from the team’s primary beat reporter for the largest paper in Washington. I should know better than that and I apologize to my readers for doing so. Erasmus James has two years left on his rookie contract,…

    The Memorial Day holiday came at a good time for the Washington Redskins. The Minnesota Vikings announced on Friday that they were going to waive defensive end Erasmus James. However, due to the fact that it was the Memorial Day weekend, the league office was closed. The waivers could not be finalized until 4 PM…

    I know that many of you out there are hoping for help for your favorite National Football League team coming from a wave of talent hitting the free agency market after June 1. I hate to tell you this, but you should look elsewhere. As far as the NFL is concerned, June 1, for the…

  9. Blache coveted James in ‘05

    Comments Off

    About a week before the 2005 NFL Draft, I wrote the following in an article about the possibility of the Washington Redskins drafting Wisconsin defensive end Erasmus James: Redskins’ defensive coordinator Greg Blache has let it be known that he would love it if the Skins would add James to his unit. There’s no question…

    I don’t expect what’s written on Redskins.com to be hard-hitting or even mildly critical of the Washington Redskins. I haven’t even heard the PR department refer to the site as “unfiltered” Redskins news lately. There is no pretense of objectivity. It’s definitely “sunny side up” coverage of the team. Generally, there isn’t anything wrong with…

    This week’s flashback takes a look at the highest scoring game in NFL history. What’s amazing is that, after 42 years, the record still stands. The rules for this game were vastly different than they are today. Defenders could bump and run with receivers all the way down the field. Defensive linemen could head slap…

  17. Jason Taylor not on Skins' dance card

    An aging but still effective star player becomes available. Add the player’s Hollywood aspirations into the mix and you seem to have a match made in heaven. Daniel Snyder, do you take Jason Taylor to be your lawfully contracted defensive end? The answer, apparently, is no. Cancel the caterers and see if you can get…

    Bob Molinaro, Washington Redskins reporter for the Virginian-Pilot in Tidewater, did a Q&A with Jim Zorn when the Skins were down in Virginia Beach for their annual Beach Blitz. Certainly, nothing earth-shattering was revealed in the interview. I did, however, find one of Zorn’s answers interesting because it pointed out a challenge that he faces…

    There seems to be some movement that might lead to the inclusion of a rookie wage scale in the next collective bargaining agreement. Kevin Mawae, Tennesse center, was on The Herd on ESPN Radio today and he had the following to say on the subject: “As a guy who has been in the league for…

    On his Redskins Insider blog, Washington Post Redskins beat reporter Jason LaCanfora delivers nothing short of glowing praise for the Redskins hiring of Morocco Brown as their director of pro personnel. You can read his whole, lengthy post on Brown on the WP website, but here is the nut of the article: Based on everything…
