    It seems that an article or a talk show segment addressing an NFL team’s 10 burning questions going into training camp is in vogue these days. I’m certainly not one who avoids latching on to such trends, but I usually tailor them to give some guise of originally (thus ESPN’s “Four Downs” becomes Warpath Insiders’…

    Sometimes what is written here results in great acclaim for the author. Other times the comments are a mix of applause and contempt. The reader reaction to the entry about the Redskins’ limiting of public and press access to training camp practices, though, was something entirely different. I was told, in a variety of ways,…

    We have created the news and it is us. One can imagine the Redskins organization uttering that line, an alteration of a famous line in the old “Pogo” comic strip (for those not as old as I am, which is most of you, the line was “We have seen the news and it is us”.)…

    Certainly, it’s early and the tough talk is part of the posturing game. Still, NFL Players Association head Gene Upshaw dropped a couple of “N” words in talking about the current status of negotiations for a new contract between the players and the union.

    Here we all have been, thinking that Sean Taylor has been boycotting the team’s voluntary workouts because he wants a new contract. According to Joe Gibbs, quoted in a Washington Times article, that isn’t the case: ‘I really don’t think [it’s] contractual,’ Gibbs said after the first of 14 days of voluntary organized team activities…

    In TV news, there’s a saying that goes, “If it bleeds, it leads,” meaning that reports on violence grab viewers.

    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.
