Cooley: Haynesworth is not isolated

(By John McDonnell - TWP) Many people -- including me -- seized on that memorable Sunday Night Football image of Albert Haynesworth standing by himself as (some) of his defensive teammates met by the bench to sort of suggest that Haynesworth was a bit isolated from the team. Chris...

Bruce Boudreau's Hadeed Carpet commercial

During the end of Bruce Boudreau's appearance on the LaVar and Dukes show on Thursday, LaVar Arrington tried to ask Boudreau about one of his Mercedes commercials, the one where he shushes the salesman with a "ya ta ta ta ta ta" gesture. But LaVar was laughing too hard...

Beat Houston

Sky Kerstein from 106.7 The Fan reports that Redskins employees are wearing these shirts on Friday. You know, in honor of the longstanding rivalry between the two franchises. Me personally, I'd rather be wearing one of these....

Chris Russell's relationship with Mike Shanahan

Apologies, but this video is no longer available. This is as insidey as it gets, but if you listen to sports talk radio in this market, you know the name Chris Russell. He's formerly the Redskins beat guy for 106.7 The Fan, currently the Redskins beat guy for ESPN 980,...

London Fletcher on Portis

Ok, I can't help myself. Like I wrote earlier, London Fletcher could be bottled up and sold as essence-of-team-player. He always says the right thing. Always. This usually means he declines to answer any of my questions. But he was on Sirius NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Damien Woody...

Redskins have NFL's most experienced roster

I've written about 400 items on how the Redskins have the oldest roster in the NFL, but the league sent out a bucket-load of data on Thursday afternoon that brought up another side of this issue: the Redskins also have the most experienced team in the league. That's a much...

Cooley and Rabach on locker room nakedness

I'm definitely nearing the point where if I write another word about reporters in locker rooms, you should feel free to punch me in the face next time you see me. But just let me take one more crack at this thing. I would say I've gotten more e-mails about...

Clinton Portis's mouth taped shut

By now you've surely read about Clinton Portis's locker room stunt from Thursday, in which he declined to answer questions during his press conference, instead having Albert Haynesworth cover his mouth with black tape while he held up funny signs. Here are some grainy images of the circus, via...

My first time on Dexter Manley's TV show

I can't say I've had many life experiences odder than sitting on a Nerf-orange couch, surrounded by lava lamps and stuffed animals decorated by ball gags, as Dexter Manley choked me. That's him, above, getting ready to apply the choke. See, this week I was invited to be a...

Mike Shanahan is quotable after all

(By John McDonnell - TWP) Since the Mike Shanahan As Mastermind Era began in Washington, I've watched the team's coach perform at press conferences and one-on-one settings, listened to him do radio appearances and address fans in a group setting, transcribed him talking about football and about his own...

Dexter Manley, Christine Brennan and the locker room

So Tuesday, I made my first of what I hope will be many appearances on Dexter Manley's television show, which you can watch here. It was a fairly surreal experience, which I'll write about in a second. But towards the end of my 35-minutes on set, I asked Dexter about...

Madison player runs into goal post

The first thing that was surprising to me about this video was the final score. Yorktown beat Madison 42-0 last weekend? I've sort of been out of touch with local high school football the last couple of years, but that's not a score I would have expected. After all,...

Belanger sounds off on Capitals

Eric Belanger was angry with the Washington Capitals when their agreement to sign him to a contract never went from words to paper, as he was apparently promised over the summer. That anger was pretty clear from Katie Carrera's story Wednesday morning, in which his agent called the team "disingenuous"...

A few words on women in NFL locker rooms

With a large assist from Clinton Portis, this whole Ines Sainz thing has somehow morphed into a debate on allowing women into NFL locker rooms rather. Which, from the league's standpoint, is no debate at all. Every reporter is treated equally, by this and every other league I know of....

D.C. adds a third sports-talk station

I think it's fairly well-established that 90 percent of my job consists of listening to local sports-talk radio. Well, that job just got a little bit more complicated. Under the theory that if two is good, three must be better, Red Zebra Broadcasting announced on Tuesday evening that it's flipping...

Better hope the Ravens game ends on time

If you're a Redskins fan, here are three things to root for during the early games on Sunday. 1) The Eagles lose to Detroit. 2) The Cowboys lose to Chicago. 3) The Ravens game ends on time. Because if the Ravens game were to somehow last past 4:15, and you...

Cooley: "We're gonna kick ass"

Terps win means 16 free toppings

I try not to convert this blog into a full-time advertisement for Papa John's, but golly, it's so hard.

Clinton Portis on Ines Sainz situation -- UPDATE

UPDATED: Tuesday 1:54 p.m. As part of the latest skirmish in the D.C. sports talk radio wars, both stations announced their big weekly gets for the season. ESPN 980, which I love, has Donovan McNabb, Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen. 106.7 The Fan, which I also love, has Clinton Portis...

LaRon Landry explains his celebrations

On each of the first three Dallas snaps Sunday night, LaRon Landry was in on the tackle. And after each of those plays -- which went for 15, 7 and 4 yards -- Landry seemed to celebrate. I think many fans are all about the celebrations following big defensive...

Redskins-Cowboys sets Sunday Night ratings record

Then Sunday night happened. In the D.C. market, Cowboys-Redskins scored a 37.2 rating and a...
