Redskins Insider: October 8, 2006 - October 14, 2006

Injury Updates

Springs still looks set to play, but not start. Another good practice. Salave'a and Griffin do not appear able to play. Barring a crazy turnaround over the weekend, looks like the kid tackles will be getting a lot of PT. Patten was downgraded as well. Everyone else looks good to...

Award TIme

1 TCCL - My pubcrawl ineptitude. Our bathroom was getting re-done and I had to be around the house a lot this week even with my girls out of town. We will definitely do this at some point, though. 2 TCCL - Carlos Rogers. I hope he's spending extra time...

Springs Looks Sprung To Play

Shawn Springs had his best practice yet, made an interception and looks good to go to play Sunday. Of course, his body needs to keep responding well the increased work, but barring a setback I am told there is a "strong possibility" he will be a part of at least...

The Anatomy Of The Press Conference

I thought this might be an interesting topic given the fact that now there is public access over the internet pretty much whenever Coach Joe speaks. People get to absorb the conference in it's entirety, take everything in the context of the question that was asked and make their own...

The Sports Reporters

Figured we'd do a little postmortem on the Sports Reporters thing and then put the baby to bed. I just want to make it clear that I only responded with vigor because I felt like a group of good journalists were being ripped for getting something right and concentrating on...

The Sports Reporters - An Oxymoron? Or Maybe Just A Mor...

For all of you loyal sports radio hounds, I was ordered to ask a few questions to Gibbs and Saunders today that I already knew the answer to. But I guess that's what happens in a market with misguided "experts" on the radio. Must be easy to sit, all cozy...

The Punter Situation

Frost got kicked in the calf and will be listed as probable on the first injury report of the week. He is expected to play. So the Skins brought in Landetta for a little insurance and to give him a look in case they needed somone in a pinch....

He's Gone, Oh I, I'd Pay the Devil to Replace Him/ He's Gone - What Went Wrong?

John Hall, definitely not high on consolation, has just left the building, again, and this time I don't think he's coming back. Hall, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday ending his season with the Redskins and perhaps his career, sneaked out of Redskins Park Tuesday. This morning, he streaked...

Guess Who's Back, Back Again

So the word is that Novak is the new kicker. We'll see if we get an official annoucnement any time soon. it took three straight years of leg problems for Coach Joe to cut the cord with Hall, but it seems like it's finally happened....

Ex-Skins Report (A Necessary Distraction From The Sunday That Was)

While Walt Harris was getting all the bloggy glory - who could ignore a three-pick game? - and our guy Nick Novak was being brought back into the fold for at least one day, we missed perhaps the greatest accomplishment of note over the weekend: Gardner, Rod (aka Fity-Fity, aka...

Nicky's in Town

Well, Novak fans, your time might be upon us. John Hall has another quad injury and Coach Gibbs is very concerned about it. Novak will be part of a kicker competition tomorrow, according to sources, and we'll see how it turns out. Doesn't sound good for Hall, either way....

Playmakers

Where have they gone on defense? Remember back in 04, when Griffin was destroying offenses inside, getting a steady push and making 2-3 tackles in the backfield every game? Remember Springs tied for the team lead in sacks and also getting five picks and guys like Matt Bowen and Ron...

Monday Morning H-Back

Wow. That was ugly. The defensive coaches were talking all week about how they were making progress and getting there and how the secondary had played its best game yet against Jacksonville. My inner BS-meter kept me from writing any of that, and I'm glad it did. They are a...
