    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

  2. Jim Zorn’s quotes, RT's comments 08.07.09

    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…

  3. The O-line—A five-point plan

    Aug 6, 2009, 6:45 AM EST

    Comments Off

    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…

  4. More roster changes but not on OL

    Aug 5, 2009, 11:44 AM EST

    Comments Off

    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…

  6. Skins Whack a Vaka

    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

  8. Has Thomas supplanted Randle El?

    Aug 4, 2009, 5:07 AM EST

    Comments Off

    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…

  9. Collins safe; Daniel, Brennan will battle for spot

    Comments Off

    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”

  12. O-line showing signs of trouble

    Aug 1, 2009, 4:50 PM EST

    Comments Off

    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…

  13. Flashback Friday 11.04.90 Skins rally past Lions

    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…

  16. Will Orakpo become a holdout?

    Jul 29, 2009, 9:57 AM EST

    Comments Off

    With less than 24 hours remaining until the first practice the Washington Redskins have yet to sign their top draft pick, Brian Orakpo. There has been no public negotiating which generally is a good sign. Michael Crabtree, the Texas Tech receiver taken at No. 10 is demanding top-three money, and that’s not sitting well with…

  17. 53: Defensive backs

    Between now and the start of training camp I’ll be making my predictions about who will be on the final 53-man roster for the Washington Redskins–who’s there, who’s in, who’s on the bubble, and who’s out. The predicted roster will be revised and updated as preseason events warrant. Today, in the last of the series,…

    Training camp starts for the Redskins at 8:30 on Thursday. I’m going to be doing a live blog from the field to give you a feel for what’s going on. However, the CoverItLive application has only partial functionality from the Blackberry and one of the major limitations is that reader comments can’t go through. There…

    I wasn’t going to do it. I wasn’t going to write anything on the subject of Michael Vick joining the Washington Redskins.
