  1. Haves vs. Nots?

    May 14, 2005, 7:48 AM EST

    Is the NFL headed towards a multi-lateral war? At least one team owner thinks it may be. From David Elfin in the Washington Times: After 45 years as a pro football owner, Buffalo’s 86-year-old Ralph Wilson has earned the right to be heard. So when Wilson says the NFL’s ongoing collective bargaining agreement discussion is…

  2. News Wars–The Readers Strike Back

    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…

    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…

  9. 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.…

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  17. 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…
