    Some of you reading this blog have met my father, Ty. He’s been to Hogfest a time or two and some of you have met him at our tailgate. Only a few of you have met my mother Mimi. She was the one who let Dad and I engage in all of these Redskins-related activities…

    The Washington Redskins have signed their starting left guard for 2009 and beyond. Chad Reinhardt, the team’s third-round draft pick out of Northern Iowa, signed a four-year contract on Thursday. He got minimum salaries for the four years, as is typical for a third-round pick, plus a signing bonus of slightly over $600,000. There are…

  5. Is Favre a good fit for the Redskins?

    If Brett Favre was to enter the market as an unrestricted free agent, would the Washington Redskins consider bringing him in? Should they? I didn’t consider this at all when the news that Favre had inquired with the Green Bay Packers about the possibility of a return last week. Wake me when it’s over, I…

  7. Campbell mixes the good, the bad, and the ugly

    The world just wants to see the baby; nobody wants to hear about the labor pains. That is the take that many have when it comes to Jason Campbell. They are not interested in the bumps and bruises, both mental and physical, that many young quarterbacks experience on the way to becoming solid, competent, NFL…

  9. Flashback Friday—Arrington’s return sparks Skins’ win

    Yes, it’s only Thursday but with the Independence Day holiday and most everything coming to a standstill as far as the Skins are concerned for another couple of weeks, here’s FF a day early. On October 21, 2001 the Redskins were 0-5 and staring 0-6 right in the face until LaVar Arrington made a play…

    It was a fake. I hate to break this news to the 30% of those who commented on a DC TV station’s video of a 110-yard Shaun Suisham field goal who actually believed that the Washington Redskins’ kicker booted a football through the goal posts from the opposite end line. WUSA, channel 9 in Washington,…

    I’ve always liked second-round draft picks. First-round caliber talent can slip into the second round of selections for various reasons from drafting for need to bad scouting, but the players don’t have nearly the price tag that first-rounders do. On top of that, a player taken there doesn’t have the expectations that come with the…

    Rarely has one paragraph contained so much fodder for a blog post. First, here’s the whole thing from the Pro Football Weekly website and then I’ll parse it line by line: Our sources tell us that there has been far less friction in Redskins Park so far this offseason since Jim Zorn has taken over.…

    I’ve been using tool to help analyze the Washington Redskins roster and sort out who’s who. It’s an Excel spreadsheet that I have cleverly named “Redskins Spreadsheet”. There’s no point in keeping such a great resource to myself, so I’m going to make it available to any and all Redskins fans who want it. I…
