2009 preseason

  1. Ticket rage

    The Washington Post obviously is very anxious to create a buzz about their multi-part series about issues within the Redskins ticket office. When I awoke this morning there I had an email in my box giving the outline of the initial installment of the series and a link to the story. In the first few…

  2. Ranking the Redskins 21-29

    Here’s my annual ranking of the front-line Redskins. There are 29 players in the rankings—the 22 regular position starters, a third wide receiver, a third-down back, punter, place kicker, long snapper, kickoff returner, and nickel back. Today, #21 through #29: 29. Shaun Suisham, K—This seemed like a good place to start since he was statistically…

  3. Has Mason already made it?

    Did a slip on the tongue on the part of Sherman Smith tip off a key roster decision? Jason Reid Barry Svrluga recounted a conversation with Smith, the Washington Redskins offensive coordinator, in his Redskins Insider blog. The subject was Clinton Portis and his relative lack of production in the preseason. Here is what Smith…

  4. Good news for Mason-ites?

    The first round of cuts generally are insignificant. I’m not exactly sure why the NFL has teams trim about 6% of the roster on one day and then the remaining 34% necessary to get to the limit four days later. The release of Alfred Fincher, however, was a mild surprise and it lines up some…

    The Redskins have released five players ahead of Tuesday’s deadline: LB Alfred Fincher OL Devin Clark DB Michael Grant DE Michael Marquardt WR Marques Hagans

  6. Blache, Matich clash

    If you didn’t stick around for the post game show on Comcast you missed some good TV. The following exchange took place between Greg Blache and former Redskin Trevor Matich. The former was just outside of the Redskins locker room doing his regular, paid (this fact is important to the story) interview with Comcast’s Kelly…

  7. Who can be on the Practice Squad?

    During the live blog last night we got to discussing the practice squad and who could be on it and who couldn’t. I found my PDF of the NFL collective bargaining agreement and found the rules on page 171. Here are the eligibility requirements for players to be on the Practice Squad:

  8. Nothing new from Campbell—consistency the key

    So far, so good. The Washington Redskins’ starting offense has gone from totally unproductive against the Ravens to showing signs of competence vs. the Steelers to resembling an actual NFL offense last night with the Patriots in town. Progress is what you’re looking for and that’s what we’ve seen. Jason Campbell demonstrated that he can…

  9. Live Blog—This one counts (well, sorta)

    Drop by here on Friday for a live blog of the Redskins-Patriots preseason game. We’ll get going at about 7:30 with kickoff at 8:00. This game is on national TV, check the listings for your local CBS outlet. It won’t be on Comcast but they will carry their usual pre- and post-game shows. Week three,…

  10. Listen to Chase

    Aug 23, 2009, 8:21 PM EST

    Comments Off

    I’m lifting the following as is from Matt Terl’s Official Redskins Blog. I had asked Chase Daniel if his performance tonight had started to answer some of the questions about his ability to transition to the NFL game. It was clearly not the first question along those lines that Daniel had answered tonight, and his…

  11. Skins-Steelers: No reason to get wee-weed up

    Aug 23, 2009, 5:14 PM EST

    Comments Off

    There’s no reason to get, in the words of our President, all wee-weed up over Jason Campbell going one for seven for 10 yards passing. I hate to break this to you but there will be a few games this season that he goes one for seven in the first few series. He then will…

  12. Tryon channeling his inner Ade

    There was a series of insurance commercials a while back that had the theme “life comes at you fast.” In the space of a 30-second spot, someone would go from seeming to be on top of the world to having very serious problems. Life came at Justin Tryon fast on Thursday night. In training camp…

  13. No cause for alarm

    In yesterday’s Washington Examiner, Rick Snider made the argument that the NFL needs to go from four preseason games to two and to increase the regular season from 16 to 18 games. I wholeheartedly agree with my friend and I will add one more reason to his list. Two fewer preseason games will give Redskins…
