    I don’t expect what’s written on Redskins.com to be hard-hitting or even mildly critical of the Washington Redskins. I haven’t even heard the PR department refer to the site as “unfiltered” Redskins news lately. There is no pretense of objectivity. It’s definitely “sunny side up” coverage of the team. Generally, there isn’t anything wrong with…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday: Redskins 72, Giants 41 11.25.66

    This week’s flashback takes a look at the highest scoring game in NFL history. What’s amazing is that, after 42 years, the record still stands. The rules for this game were vastly different than they are today. Defenders could bump and run with receivers all the way down the field. Defensive linemen could head slap…

    Comments Off on Jason Taylor not on Skins' dance card

    An aging but still effective star player becomes available. Add the player’s Hollywood aspirations into the mix and you seem to have a match made in heaven. Daniel Snyder, do you take Jason Taylor to be your lawfully contracted defensive end? The answer, apparently, is no. Cancel the caterers and see if you can get…

    Comments Off on Zorn in an awkward spot

    Bob Molinaro, Washington Redskins reporter for the Virginian-Pilot in Tidewater, did a Q&A with Jim Zorn when the Skins were down in Virginia Beach for their annual Beach Blitz. Certainly, nothing earth-shattering was revealed in the interview. I did, however, find one of Zorn’s answers interesting because it pointed out a challenge that he faces…

    There seems to be some movement that might lead to the inclusion of a rookie wage scale in the next collective bargaining agreement. Kevin Mawae, Tennesse center, was on The Herd on ESPN Radio today and he had the following to say on the subject: “As a guy who has been in the league for…

    On his Redskins Insider blog, Washington Post Redskins beat reporter Jason LaCanfora delivers nothing short of glowing praise for the Redskins hiring of Morocco Brown as their director of pro personnel.

  14. The CBA and the Redskins

    Comments Off on The CBA and the Redskins

    As expected, the NFL owners voted to end the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players association on Tuesday. The unanimous vote has no immediate impact but it does start the clock ticking towards an uncapped year in 2010. That season with no salary cap has many Washington Redskins fans gleefully anticipating a…

    According to the Washington Post, the Washington Redskins have hired Morocco Brown to be their director of pro personnel. I haven’t posted much of anything about the moves in the Redskins’ front office lately.
