Redskins Insider: December 3, 2006 - December 9, 2006

Bett$

Hey there, I am swamped with a ton of stuff - including a big story for Sunday - and flying solo today, so the blog had to wait. Sorry. I was told about an hour ago that Betts could earn up to $11 million in his five year deal. He...

Award Time

(Amended from this morning in light of recent events). -5 TCCLs - US Soccer Federation. Six months and you still don't have a coach. Great work. If you blow it with Klinsi you'll be hearing about it on this 'lil blog for a long, long time. Why do I feel...

Because You Asked For It

Some have been asking about the details on the Lloyd contract, in the event the Skins wanted to whack him after one season. First of all, I don't think that is remotely going to happen, and given the hit they'll take on Arch Deluxe, they'll have to limit the purging...

Practice? We're Talking About Practice?

Okay, many of the walking wounded are back. Jansen (calf) and Todd Yoder (thigh) were the only ones not on the field for practice. The rest seem good to go. Kenny Wright, Khary Campbell, and Phillip Daniels were back....

Walt Harris - Ballin'

Well, as several players around here have noted, Walt is playing some ball for the 49ers. Yes, he had a horrible year hear, but several players and someone on the staff have said they believed Harris was still a player and could help here. The Redskins chose Kenny Wright over...

New Orleans Update

Figured I'd update the progress of Scott and his gang going to N'Orleans for some humanitarian work to help rebuild the city. They were hoping to end their trip by cheering on the Skins at The Superdome, but it doesn't look great so far. My man Scott writes of his...

My Pitch To The Owner/Lloyd Update

I figured with everyone clearly looking ahead to 2007 I would take a few cracks at seeing if the owner felt inclined to weigh in any of the huge issues facing the franchise, you know, since he's the top dog and all. There was all the confusion prompted by Joe...

CP On The Mend

Portis has out-patient surgery on his shoulder this morning and is doing well, Bubba says. Had it performed locally by the team surgeon. He'll have to rest for a while, then the rehab will begin, but it's a long process....

Who's Going To Walk The Plank?

So, who takes the weight for this latest franchise-wide failure? What do you guys think? I think it's pretty obvious that Arch Deluxe is gone, and a group of other players will depart as well - lot's of older vets realize this is probably it in DC. But will they...

What a Free Agent Class

So I was half-joking about Lloyd getting LaVar-ed, then, whatdya know, Coach Joe says he's thinking about doing exactly that. if you talk to people back in San Fran, they'd be saying "I told you so," right now. This cat can be pretty moody and unpredictable and I suspect this...

Nick's Gone

Skins just cut Nick. I feel bad for the dude. He's a great kid, but he just wasn't getting it done. he says he saw it coming and took full responsibility for it. I'd love to see him at least get a gig in NFL Europe somehere, and with a...

Monday Morning H-Back

This thing was supposed to post at 7 am - I set the timer - but now I find it's just sitting in the system. So I'll try it again. Here goes: Okay, so we finally saw what a JC/first-time starter clunker looks like. He wasn't alone - how about...

No Springs

So I guess Springs's hamstring was a lil worse than we were led to beleive. He's out, y'all. Also out are Khary Campbell, Mike Espy, David Patten, Taylor Whitley, The Koz, and Troy Vincent still out with the hammy. Kenny Wright will start, and Vernon Fox is starting again. Suisham...

Two-Headed Kicker

So Suisham is activate to the roster from the practice squad, and DL Ryan Boschetti was released. From everything I heard through the weekend, seemed like Nick The Kick would still be the field goal guy, and my hunch is they dress both kickers and Suisham handles kickoffs. Should have...
