Guest Column: Alex35332

The last 30 or so posts on this blog have been Redskins-centric, so why change it up now? I promise to consider thinking about maybe posting something about the Nationals next week, but for today, we have a guest blog from Alex35332 (the prize for winning the haiku challenge): DC...

FedEx Fast Lanes? For Shame!

I do hope you'll agree with me that the Redskins' latest premium "perk" (detailed below) is one of their most ridiculous yet, and not in the usual evil genius sort of way. If your eyes light up when you read about it and you find yourself exclaiming, "Holy Dan Snyder,...

Featured Commenter: Nate in the PDX

Meet Redskins Insider celebrity Nate in the PDX: Real name (optional): naaah... just Nate. "Keeping with the hat theme, and throwing in a jersey for good measure. Yes, that's RI on the laptop in the background. A shamelessly staged photo, shot by my darling wife, 'Mrs. Nate.'" Location: Portland, OR....

Countdown to Football: Theme Songs

Today is Thursday, July 17, which means that there are three days left to suffer through until football takes over. Yesterday, I essentially begged for a little help with these "contests." I only got one response in the comments: jg284481-5-37: Contest Idea : Most outlandish Brett Favre trade scenario (rumors...

Countdown to Football: Dust Off That Grill

Today is Wednesday, July 16, but more importantly, there are just four days until Redskins training camp is open to the public. Before we get to today's contest, I suppose I should issue what has become a near-daily apology/clarification for something I've done/said/insinuated: I am truly, madly, deeply sorry for...

Countdown to Football: Predict the Injuries

Today is Tuesday, July 15, which means that there are officially five days until Redskins training camp begins.

Countdown to Football: The Haiku Challenge

Today is Monday, July 14, but more importantly, there are six days until Redskins training camp begins. Before we get to today's contest, two programming notes: 1. I've gotten a few complaints about not posting on Saturday and Sunday, even though I clearly said there would be ten straight days...

Countdown to Football: Name That Zorn

Today is an excellent day for two reasons, the first of which being that it's Friday. Second, there are just nine days -- and nine "contests" -- to go until Redskins training camp is open to the public. Today's contest is all about the art of the nickname. Ever since...

The One Where We Start Counting Down to Football

If you're anything like me, you've been waking up every Sunday morning since Feb. 10 -- the first Sunday after the Super Bowl -- with the sinking realization that there won't be any football on TV. Sure, there have been a few tiny, insignificant little morsels -- and one massive,...

Jasno Paparazzi Shot

An anonymous reader (cough cough) sent in this "sneaky shot" of a certain beloved beat writer: Jasno, left, and Redskins Insider regular P Diddy at the Nationals game. Watchin' the game, eatin' a burger. Sportswriters: they're just like us!...

RI Breakfast Buffet: Video Feedback, Jasno Hates Portis, Singalong

I might be overdoing it with the Redskins Insider recap posts. It's almost like wearing a leather jacket with big studs and flames on the back every day: At first it's funky fresh, but then people start wondering if you have anything else to wear. You know what, though? I...

Redskins Video Progress Report

File this under Things I Thought I'd Never See on the Redskins Insider: dwdjmu: REDSKINS OVERLOAD! Say what now? Too much Redskins? That's a new one. The Insider crew has been quite critical of Post reporter Jason Reid's OTA video updates, but this is unprecedented. Here's the latest video for...

This Could Be Dangerous

I'm surprised there haven't been more comments on this lovely little item about one Daniel Snyder looking to buy local sports-talk station WTEM: "Purchasing WTEM would give Red Zebra a much better signal for Redskins games and Redskins-related programming." Does "Redskins-related programming" make your stomach turn, too? bfjam: The problem...

Does Fred Davis Deserve More Beauty Sleep Than the Rest of Us?

Question: Is it a big deal that Redskins rookie tight end Fred Davis may or may not have overslept, but definitely missed Sunday's practice? Apparently not. And here I thought Redskins fans would have sent out an Amber Alert. kingly0577@yahoo.com: Man we are uptight in this town. Ok! He overslept...

Redskins Fans Say No to Ocho Cinco

Why are Redskins fans feigning shock and horror that team owner Dan Snyder and Guy With Unnecessarily Long Title Vinny Cerrato are willing to give up draft picks for Bengals Way, Way Out There Receiver Chad Johnson? Is a move of that nature considered out of character? impervious99: I dont...

Super Bowl or Bust?

The Redskins' schedule is out. Don't you think it's slightly amusing that two fans of the exact same team can have such different predictions for the season? We have the eternal optimist: PANELMAN: Go! Skins! Go! I just voted for an undefeated season, and trip to the SB! According to...

Redskins Fans Waiting for Something to Be Angry About

The Redskins are preparing for the draft, and for the first time in a while, very few can (justifiably) argue with how the team is going about things. It's easy to tell that nothing exciting (or appalling) is happening because the conversation has been at a standstill for quite some...

Caption Contest: Jim Zorn

Crowd Noise's latest contest didn't really go so well, but I rarely learn from mistakes, so here we are again. Let's see who can come up with the best caption for this photo of Redskins Coach Jim Zorn: (By Michael Conroy -- Associated Press) My lame caption after the jump...
