  1. Shaun Suisham 100-yard FG revealed

    Jul 2, 2008, 9:14 AM EDT

    It was a fake. I hate to break this news to the 30% of those who commented on a DC TV station’s video of a 110-yard Shaun Suisham field goal who actually believed that the Washington Redskins’ kicker booted a football through the goal posts from the opposite end line. WUSA, channel 9 in Washington,…

  2. Skins stock up on seconds

    Comments Off on Skins stock up on seconds

    I’ve always liked second-round draft picks. First-round caliber talent can slip into the second round of selections for various reasons from drafting for need to bad scouting, but the players don’t have nearly the price tag that first-rounders do. On top of that, a player taken there doesn’t have the expectations that come with the…

    Comments Off on An improved atmosphere in Ashburn?

    Rarely has one paragraph contained so much fodder for a blog post. First, here’s the whole thing from the Pro Football Weekly website and then I’ll parse it line by line: Our sources tell us that there has been far less friction in Redskins Park so far this offseason since Jim Zorn has taken over.…

    Comments Off on You, too, can get the 411 on the Redskins

    I’ve been using tool to help analyze the Washington Redskins roster and sort out who’s who. It’s an Excel spreadsheet that I have cleverly named “Redskins Spreadsheet”. There’s no point in keeping such a great resource to myself, so I’m going to make it available to any and all Redskins fans who want it. I…

    Comments Off on Rookie Tryon may have to step up at CB

    I promised a blurb about the Skins’ cornerback situation after the release of John Eubanks, who was the fourth corner last year after Carlos Rogers was put on injured reserve in October. Eubanks was released, it seems to me, and players like Byron Westbrook and Cedric Holt stayed because Eubanks had used up his practice…

    Comments Off on Skins’ D-Line a blue-collar group

    Many have questioned the Washington Redskins’ “failure” to address the defensive line in the recent draft. They did not draft a defensive lineman until taking Rob Jackson out of Kansas State in the seventh round. Jackson is a prospect but for 2008 he’ll be, at best, a long-term project. Even without the addition of a…

    With the departure of Joe Gibbs and the arrival of Jim Zorn, some things have changed about the Washington Redskins’ training camp while some things have remained the same. One change is that camp no longer is built by Home Depot; instead, it will be presented by RE/MAX (properly typed in all caps and with…

    On Tuesday, the Atlanta Falcons released safety Jimmy Williams, a 2006 second-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech. As usually happens when a player who was a high pick in a recent draft is cut loose, folks are asking if the Washington Redskins might have any interest in picking him up. I can generally hazard…

    I rarely use this space to encourage the readers here to go out and vote in this or that internet poll. Nor do I talk much about team mascots. In fact, without using the search feature here, I think I can safely say that I have never done so. Generally, such things are a waste…
