    Comments Off on Is Justin Hamilton more than camp fodder?

    The Washington Redskins signed safety Justin Hamilton, who was out of the league in 2007, on Friday. Normally, that’s all the mention that the acquisition of a street free agent would merit. But Hamilton may, just may, be more than mere camp fodder. Hamilton is 6-3, 217 and at the 2006 combine he ran 4.55…

    Redskins 27, Saints 24November 6, 1988RFK Stadium The second Flashback Friday brings you a game against the second opponent the Redskins will face in 2008 (hey, I might be on to a pattern here).

    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.…

    Comments Off on 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…

    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.
