Redskins Insider: August 20, 2006 - August 26, 2006

Weekly Awards

I thought I'd start another weekly feature today - to compliment the massively well received "Monday Morning/Afternoon H-Back" and go with a regular set of Skins awards. Maybe we'll do it every Friday or something - that is generally a light work day around Redskins Park - and I'll...

Brunell's Groin

Brunell did not practice, resting a sore groin, Gibbs and Bubba say. All are saying it's minor, a precaution, and that he will definitely play Saturday in New England. We're waiting to see if Brunell talks to us, which we imagine he will when he leaves the building. This is...

The Things You See in Ashburn

I thought I'd seen it all when Sonny J. was tooling around again on his Segway, but that's nothing. I have seen the future of human transportation, and it's scary, man. Imagine MTV needed even more inane programming than it already has, and added "Pimp My Golf Cart." Someone...

Two Sides

I would love to sit in on one of the many private coach-player meetings that go on in pro sports. 'Cause it seems like no matter who the coach is or who the player is, something's always lost in translation. On this beat alone, I've seen it happen with...

Random Jibberish

Some of ya'll were wondering about Tom Tupa's whereabouts - given the state of the Redskins' punting game since he disappeared - and I'm here to please. Remember, I work for you guys, so keep the suggestions and comments coming. Anway, Tupa was put on IR last summer after...

And the Winner Is ...

Finally got to catch up with Cooley Wednesday afternoon to settle the battle of the chants. Of course, I got all of my official Washington Post business out of the way first - his thoughts on the new offense, this preseason, yada yada yada - then moved in for...

Trade Blog

I'm sure the Redskins will spin the trade for T.J. Duckett in a bunch of ways, and they'll continue to laud Betts and Cartwright and assure everyone Portis will be just great this season, but here's my take on it. 1) The Redskins have shown again the draft ain't...

Cooley Has Spoken

The votes are counted. The results are in. Many a chuckle was had. Cooley has settled the battle of the best chant ... and I'm going to make you all wait til tomorrow because it's time to get home to my wife and baby. It's also a shameless attempt to...

End of the Day Musings

I fully expect to see a half of football or more from the first team offense Saturday in New England. It's just gotta happen. They have to show a little something in the preseason to build on. Get the ball in Cooley's hands a few times. Run a little...

Let's Hug It Out

Ever think about the hierarchy of the Redskins' front office as viewed through the lens of Entourage? Yeah, probably not, but then again I'm not your average bear. The more I've thought about this thing - I promise I haven't wasted too many brain cells on this wacky theory...

To knee, or not to knee, that is ...

Not a good time to be an ex-Skin these days. My long-held thoughts that LaVar Arrington's career will never be the same because of his knee problems - unfortunate as this is - seem to be holding true this training camp, while another long-beloved teammate, running back Stephen Davis,...

Monday Afternoon H-Back

I thought for a minute that Coach Joe was going to combust Saturday night. He was fuming mad, plenty vexed, and in no mood to talk to us media bozos. The man was as peeved as I have seen him on this job. Considering how bad the offense was...
