Join me right here on Thursday night for a tradition unlike any other, the Real Redskins live blog of the preseason opener. We’ll get rolling here at about 7:00 with kickoff coming at 7:30. So put the game on the tube and talk about it here. If you live out of the area, come over…

After I posted about Justin Tryon yesterday, I thought a bit more about what Darrell Green said about him. In particular, this part jumped out at me: “. . . he’s a starter in 2009, 2010 or whenever the opportunity comes.” What jumped out at me was the mention of 2010. Carlos Rogers will be…

About a week or so before training camp started, I dashed off the following few paragraphs about Washington Redskins cornerback Justin Tryon. I didn’t publish it immediately because I’d just posted a bunch of articles and it got buried. Here it is, below the fold:

One of the cool things about being associated with a site like WarpathConfidential.com is that when you want to write an article on a subject but you’re kind of stuck on a slant, there’s always one over there that captures the essence of the subject. So instead of me coming up with something lame (no…

First, I have to say that I was wrong. My predictions of the fan appreciation day scrimmage turning into another overcrowded disaster did not come to pass. They were able to secure additional parking and there were more of Loudon Count’s finest on duty to direct traffic so that things went much more smoothly. The…

Better late than never and, since the main topic of discussion is the problems along the offensive line, still topical. Here is my weekly spot with Big Al at ESPN 950 in Richmond. Tandler on Sports Phone 08.05.09

Here is what Jim Zorn said to the media today followed by what I have to say about what he said. On Fan Appreciation Day: “It’s a big deal for us. The tradition here is the fans love the Washington Redskins. They come into our home basically, and we are inviting everyone in. We hope…

The Washington Redskins’ offensive line is getting to be like the weather—everyone wants to complain about it but nobody wants to do anything about it. There are those who want the team to scan the available free agent list and sign a Jon Runyan or Levi Jones. I guess if you want to add even…

In a move that was not at all surprising, the Washington Redskins today waived-injured wide receiver Roydell Williams. A broken finger that required surgery would have sidelined Williams until September and the Redskins were unable to wait for a marginal veteran prospect to heal. The replacement veteran is former Seahawk D. J. Hackett, who finally…

The Redskins announced that they have waived defensive tackle Vaka Manupuna. The 27-year-old has had a couple of stints with the Redskins in camp and one with the Jets without ever appearing in an NFL regular-season game. Unfortunately for Manupuna, he won’t be able to return to his former employer. He played with the Utah…

Edit: It’s being said that this is the first Redskins SI cover since Stephen Davis on 12.03.01. This looks more like a Chris Samuels cover to me: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/cover/featured/9820/index.htm

Less than a week into camp it appears that a starting job for the Washington Redskins has changed hands. Per Jason Reid at the WaPo, Devin Thomas has the inside track to start at wide receiver opposite Santana Moss. Thomas had his shot this track from the get-go. When the offense lined up for its…

Sometimes you have to read between the lines to get the answers you’re looking for. During the offseason, there has been speculation that the Washington Redskins might choose to keep both Colt Brennan and Colt Daniel and release the 38-year-old Todd Collins. The thinking was that Collins is not the long-term answer at quarterback so…

I’m new at this podcasting thing, but here you go with my radio appearance from last Thursday. I did it from the radio studio at Redskins Park while Big Al, the dean of Richmond sport talk, was at the Richmond studios. It’s about 20 minutes long, a camp preview. Tandler on ESPN 950 07.30.09

At Warpath Confidential, take a look at what Colt Brennan is working on and how that may have spawned a new Zorn-ism. Zorn wants Brennan to “rhythm up”

The Washington Redskins offensive line is off to a slow start. According to John Pappas at WarpathConfidential.com, the Redskins O-line has lived down to expectations so far in training camp. The defensive front is looking like the ’85 Bears unit in practice. That wouldn’t be so disturbing, says Pappas, but the likes of Chris Wilson…

The biggest deficit the Redskins have overcome is 21 points and they have done it three times. This is the middle occurrence of the three, a November game in 1990. It featured an unlikely hero in Jeff Rutledge and some cooperation on the part of the Lions was needed to give the Redskins the chance…

One receiver is putting on weight, the other gave up his favorite foods in an effort to lose some. Read my new article at Warpath Confidential.
