  1. Calendar helped Skins land James

    May 27, 2008, 9:39 PM EDT

    The Memorial Day holiday came at a good time for the Washington Redskins. The Minnesota Vikings announced on Friday that they were going to waive defensive end Erasmus James. However, due to the fact that it was the Memorial Day weekend, the league office was closed. The waivers could not be finalized until 4 PM…

    I know that many of you out there are hoping for help for your favorite National Football League team coming from a wave of talent hitting the free agency market after June 1. I hate to tell you this, but you should look elsewhere. As far as the NFL is concerned, June 1, for the…

  3. Blache coveted James in ‘05

    Comments Off

    About a week before the 2005 NFL Draft, I wrote the following in an article about the possibility of the Washington Redskins drafting Wisconsin defensive end Erasmus James: Redskins’ defensive coordinator Greg Blache has let it be known that he would love it if the Skins would add James to his unit. There’s no question…

    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…

  6. 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…

  8. 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…

  10. 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…

    Fred Davis returned to Redskins Park on Tuesday and apologized publicly for oversleeping and missing the third and final day of the team’s minicamp earlier this month. “I want to start by apologizing to [Redskins owner Dan] Snyder, Coach [Jim] Zorn, the players for making a minor mistake, just not waking up on time, something…

    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. You can read his whole, lengthy post on Brown on the WP website, but here is the nut of the article: Based on everything…

  17. 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. It’s important stuff, but I just wasn’t sure about what the departure of Louis Riddick from the job that Brown will…
