    –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 all…

    Comments Off on For starters, first team offense will play

    As you probably have read, Jim Zorn has decided to play the offensive starters for a series or two tonight in the Washington Redskins’ preseason finale. The players, by all reports, are all in favor of getting out there to play the kinks out of their game, even if they will be facing the Jags’…

    The RealRedskins.com live blog of the Redskins-Jaguars preseason game will have a few twists that will make it different from the four we’ve done so far this year. First, it will be coming from the press box at FedEx Field. I’ve been sitting there for every home game every season but one since 2001, doing…

  8. Skins’ punter battle remains close

    Comments Off on Skins’ punter battle remains close

    There are those who think that Washington Redskins punter Derrick Frost saved his job on Saturday night by punting for a nice average in the Skins’ dismal defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. It appeared to them that he got a leg up, so to speak, on rookie Durant Brooks by averaging 51.3…

    Comments Off on Fox chased, two others cut

    Vernon Fox became another victim of a strong Washington Redskins youth movement at the safety position. Fox and former Oakland Raider Stu Schweigert were supposed to add veteran depth to a young and inexperienced Redskins safety corps. Instead, Schweigert was shown the door after the first preseason game and Fox was let go today. Two…

    Two plays in the second quarter of two preseason games, taking place at roughly the same time, one in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the other in Charlotte, North Carolina and both involving famous defensive ends. The seasons of the New York Giants and Washington Redskins hinged on hinge joints. In Charlotte, Washington’s Jason Taylor got…

    Comments Off on Taylor injury worse than indicated?

    This is just reporting some third hand information here, but I’ve heard that the Redskins are concerned that Jason Taylor’s injury may be somewhat serious. Not serious as in season-ending, but serious as in missing some of the regular season is a distinct possibility. The famed Dr. Andrews was there and he concurred that is…

    Here’s a look at some of the history between the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers. Owned The Redskins and Panthers have played just eight times with the Redskins holding a 7-1 series advantage. Carolina was a team that—brace yourself—Norv Turner owned.

    It’s time for my annual, purely subjective ranking of the Washington Redskins’ 30 front-line players. The lists consists of the 22 offensive and defensive starters, four special teams positions (place kicker, punter, snapper, and kick returner) and a relief running back, third wide receiver, rotational defensive lineman, and nickel defensive back. The list starts with…
