    Comments Off on McMullen vs. Mix

    Even before the draft, it appeared that Billy McMullen was training camp fodder for the Washington Redskins. In four NFL seasons, the former Virginia Cavalier has caught just 45 passes. He managed just 29 in three seasons in the pass-happy Eagles offense before catching 16 last year for the Minnesota Vikings. The Redskins signed him…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday: Past training camp battles

    There are few battles for starting jobs with the Redskins this year. Just in case you’re yearning for a good, old fashioned August battle for a starting spot, here’s a look back at a few of the more memorable ones from the Redskins’ past: 1972: Billy Kilmer vs. Sonny Jurgensen — This was the very…

    Comments Off on Saturday game plan: Calling audibles

    Colt Brennan, who had an impressive pro debut last Sunday, may taking a step up the Washington Redskins depth chart on Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills. It is likely that he, not Todd Collins, will be coming in to the game after Jason Campbell is done for the night. Before Rainbow Warrior Nation out…

    Comments Off on Schmitt hits the trail, Hamilton back

    Fullback Pete Schmitt, just resigned by the Redskins on Monday, has decided to pack it in. He talked to Jim Zorn after practice and said simply that pro football wasn’t for him. Schmitt’s “retirement” (Corey Masisak at the Times in wondering if he will change his mind and then orchestrate a trade) put the Redskins…

    Comments Off on Saturday’s game vs. Bills—first look

    The Washington Redskins have left behind the glow of Canton and the combined QB rating of 147.2 that Campbell, Collins, Brennan and Devine laid on the Colts’ scrubs. They now turn their attention to their Saturday night preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. As you are all sophisticated Redskins fans, you know that teams do…

    Comments Off on Betts redid his contract

    According to Redskins cap guru Robert Large, aka PC in OZ, Ladell Betts recently adjusted his contract in order to give the team a bit of breathing room in the wake of the acquisition of Miami defensive end Jason Taylor and his $8 million salary. Here’s the skinny from PC himself: Ladell Betts has agreed…

    Comments Off on The Zorn identity is emerging

    When I was at the Washington Redskins training camp a couple of weeks ago, I noted that when the practice was over, Jim Zorn brought together the entire team in a massive, 80-man huddle. This has happened at the end of almost every practice I’ve seen. The huddle usually lasted 30 seconds, a minute tops.…

  18. Chris Horton a lock?

    Comments Off on Chris Horton a lock?

    It probably would be inaccurate to say that Chris Horton is happy that fellow Washington Redskins safety Stuart Schweigert is now his former teammate. Pros, even rookies, don’t revel in players becoming unemployed, even ones that play the same position. However, although Horton isn’t doing a happy dance, it’s doubtful that he’s moping around the…

    Comments Off on Schweigert released

    I saw that Stuart Schweigert didn’t look to good last night, but I thought he’d get some time to work out the kinks. I was wrong. Schweigert and Danny Verdun-Wheeler just were released. Pete Schmitt, who could be the fullback to be named later, and safety Patrick Ghee were signed.
