  1. Flashback Friday—Revenge of the Body Bags

    Jun 19, 2009, 7:06 AM EDT

    I put up a Redskins Chronicle excerpt from the 1990 season up on the website and this game has drawn a few comments. About two months before this first-round playoff game the Eagles had physically whipped the Redskins, beating them 28-14 in a game that was not nearly as close as that score would indicate.…

  2. Quick hits 06.18.09—Tickets, training camp and the Chronicle

    I just got an automated phone call from the Redskins offering me Redskins season tickets. It’s at least the third, maybe the fourth one I’ve received in the past couple of months. On top of that I’ve received two mailings offering the same thing. On top of that I’m not the only person I know…

    In contrast to what we’re seeing in many businesses, the Washington Redskins will be hiring later this summer. There is opportunity aplenty in Ashburn. Of the 53 players on the roster for the last game of the 2008 season, 13 of them will not be reporting to training camp on July 30. That means that…

  6. Redskins say no to Vick

    Comments Off

    After considering the possibility of signing Michael Vick, the Redskins quickly decided against making that move. The news, coming from John Keim at the Washington Examiner, isn’t surprising. In fact, I would say that it wasn’t exactly man bites dog news, but that would be a bad pun of questionable taste. Other than the fact…

    It appears that James Thrash has a decision to make. According to Dave Elfin of the Washington Times, Thrash has been struggling with a neck injury all offseason. Medication took care of the pain during the offseason down time but once workouts started in March the bulging disc flared up again. He has yet to…

  10. Jansen, Moss salary cap implications

    Comments Off

    When I wrote about Jon Jansen’s release a week ago, I was imprecise in communicating a number that is important when evaluating the move and I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify. I said that by releasing Jansen “the Redskins took a cap hit of some $6 million.” That’s true. The Redskins will take…

    Jon Jansen’s release, a move that the Redskins announced earlier today, came as a surprise. Dan Snyder flew Redskins One to Michigan to pick up Jansen so that Jim Zorn could deliver to news to him in person. By releasing Jansen the Redskins took a cap hit of some $6 million.

  14. Redskins are the NFL’s most mediocre team

    The 2009 Washington Redskins will be about a .500 team. I say this with confidence and not because I possess a crystal ball that allows me to peer into the future and see events to come with clarity. It’s because I can see the past and recognize that a .500 team is what the Redskins…

    The Washington Redskins are in line to take a slap on the wrist for possibly jumping the gun in signing free agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. According to a Yahoo!

    Last week, in its “Whispers—NFC” section, Pro Football Weekly “reported” the following: Would the Washington Redskins take a chance on Michael Vick? Don’t rule it out. Owner Daniel Snyder loves the big splash and might be willing to gamble on Vick, who grew up in nearby Newport News, Va. There’s no question that the Redskins…

  20. Robert Henson could be a “special” player

    May 13, 2009, 1:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    As the Washington Redskins’ sixth-round draft choice, linebacker Robert Henson knows that he will have to wait his turn to play with the defense and contribute on special teams in the meantime. He has been down that path before. For three seasons at TCU he got three starts on defense and played on virtually every…
