  1. News Wars–The Readers Strike Back

    May 9, 2005, 10:16 AM EDT

    In TV news, there’s a saying that goes, “If it bleeds, it leads,” meaning that reports on violence grab viewers. I can’t come up with a similar, Jesse Jackon-esque catch phrase for it, but I’ve found out that nothing grabs the interest of the readers of this blog quite like a story about media coverage…

    There is an old adage that says that you should never pick a fight with one who buys ink by the barrel. Maybe that’s changed; you might be able to get away with it if you buy bandwidth by the terabyte. A few months ago the Redskins picked a fight with the Washington Post over…

  5. Moss Gathers Long Green

    It wasn’t a surprise, but it certainly is raising some eyebrows. Santana Moss will sign a new deal with the Redskins today and he will collect #1 receiver type money, not bad for a player who caught passes for less than 900 yards last year. According to Redskins, the Washington Post: Moss’s six-year deal totals…

  7. Conversion Failed: Skins Won't Invite Hoopster

    In the NFL success breeds imitations and the success of San Diego tight end Antonio Gates, a college basketball player who became an NFL star at tight end is no exception. The Redskins certainly aren’t shy about hopping aboard that bandwagon, inviting Pittsburgh hoopster Chevon Troutman to their combination rookie minicamp and tryout this weekend.…

  9. Gardner: 50-50 Chance He'll Be Back?

    Rod Gardner may not be running from town after all. After the dust settled following the NFL draft, the Redskins had not selected a wide receiver. They also had not disposed of one. More than three months after telling Gardner he was free to seek a trade and making it clear that the receiver is…

  11. Skins Big Media Bias: Caught Red Handed

    I’m not one to whine much about media bias against the Redskins. Yes, there is a lot of negative reporting about the Redskins. It’s hard to find a Skins draft grade out there above what I got in high school physics (and there’s a reason I’m not a rocket scientist). My line of reasoning has…

    Skins Take Lunch-Pail Players on Day 2 After spend a pair of first-round picks on players in glamour positions on Saturday and took a pair of linebackers and a pair of fullbacks on the second day. Of the four picks—Robert McCune of Louisville (5th round) and Jared Newberry of Stanford (6th) are the linebackers and…

  15. Too Early to Judge the Draft

    To start out with, I have to state that it’s been my firm belief ever since I knew what an NFL draft was that it takes at least three years, probably four, to judge a draft. You have to see how the players who were selected actually play on the field for an extended period…

    It’s not all that complicated, really. If the Redskins are 100% convinced that Braylon Edwards will be the next great receiver, the next Rice, the next Monk, the next Don Hutson, they have to make a deal to move up to draft him. Trade the two firsts, throw in Rod Gardner, Tony Stewart and Redskins…

    It’s beyond a buzz, it’s starting to become a deafening roar. Voices in the media claiming that the Redskins made the trade to acquire Denver’s first-round pick in order to package it with their own pick and #9 and move into the top few selections. Their target there is supposedly Michigan WR Braylon Edwards. This…

    Thanks to a few alert readers, I must stand corrected on one point I made in the last edition of this blog. I stated that the trade with Denver doesn’t equal out on any draft value chart you can find. That was incorrect. On the standard draft value chart, which assigns points based on the…

    First of all, before you read a word of what’s to follow, you have to realize one thing. Since January 4, 2004 all of the decisions in player personnel matters for the Washington Redskins, including the dealing of and use of draft picks, have been made by one Joe Jackson Gibbs. Love it or hate…

    In case you haven’t heard, here’s the trade that the Redskins and Broncos completed on Tuesday evening, complete with editorial comment in what’s supposed to be a news story by the AP’s Joseph White: Paying a hefty price for a short-term gain, the Redskins on Tuesday acquired the No. 25 overall pick from the Denver…
