Redskins Insider: August 27, 2006 - September 2, 2006

Friday (late) Morning H-Back

So I'm shooting the bull with Wilbon outside FedEx Field around 12:30 Friday morning - after the exhibition with the Ravens - when who should stroll through but The Danny, and a couple of his well-suited businessman buddies. Dan and I say hello, and he and Wilbon kick it...

Game 4 - Why Bother?

Anyone else already dreading the drive to FedEx tonight? I hate these weekday night games. Inevitable traffic chaos. Even more parking lot bedlam than usual (I mean jammed up I-95, not the actual spots where people drop off their cars for $35 a pop). I'm thinking I'll be out...

The Baseball Bunch

Wanna know why football is so much more popular than baseball these days. Three words: The Dugout Wizard. What the hell happened to The Baseball Bunch? We lived for that show every Saturday morning. TWIB in the morning - the only way for my friends and I to really...

The Madden Curse (sort of)

Someone posted on the blog last week that Skins long snapper Ethan Albright was the lowest rated player in the NFL on the Madden game. What a travesty. When I approached Ethan about it, he'd already heard. Some buddies emailed him about it. Seems odd to me though -...

Eddie Johnson Just Got Cut, No Joke

They whacked Eddie Johnson after practice, his first with the team. Johnson worked out this morning, showed well, was signed, had some fatigue during practice after punting and kicking so much this morning, and got the pink slip a little while ago. What a day. Frosty lives. Frosty lives....

Nick Novak, 24/7

Because the people have spoken. Because you demanded it. Because he appears to be one of the most popular ex-Skins of all time (or someone who has a lot of his friends posting comments on this blog), I've got the latest Nick Novak news. He's getting a hair cut, as...

Punters Galore

Let the punter games begin! The Redskins have brought in a few punter/kickoff guys to compete with incumbent Derrick Frost, and today's 2 pm practice will get it started. League sources have told me one of the punters is Eddie Johnson, a former sixth-round pick by the Vikings (1993)...

Dr. Evil

If you asked me to play mad scientist and pick one player to pluck out of Gregg Williams's defense as an evil ploy against all of Redskin Nation, I'm taking Cornelius Griffin every single time. The defense does not have the same bite without him there - regular season,...

Free Nick Novak

Nick's on the market, baby. Released by Arizona a little while ago. Spoke to him on his cell a fwe minutes ago. Would love to come back here, but no word from the Skins yet. Stay tuned....

Punter? We Don't Need No Stinking Punter

Alright, just got back from practice and it's Hall and Frostie out there, and no one else. No new bodies in camp. Here's what I got on other guys. Novak is kicking well in Arizona's camp, but would they really keep Rackers and Novak? We'll see. Been making calls on...

Get Well Soon, Don

Don Breaux is impossible not to like. He has a great temperament, a wonderful way of speaking with a Louisiana twang, and a caring, grandfatherly nature. He's as close a Gibbs confidant as there is, and his words carry a great weight with the man running the show, but...

Monday Morning H-Back

Observations from another Redskins preseason flop: 1 - Joe Gibbs - The Freshmaker. Gotta give it to Joe. He always keeps ya guessing. A week after bringing a temper into his post-game press conference, Gibbs was tranquil as can be following the 41-0 debacle at New England Saturday night. I...
