Redskins Insider: August 19, 2007 - August 25, 2007

Is This It?

Talked to some people from the Ravens and they are trying to get packed up and out of here. Heard both coaches are totally cool with calling this thing and looks like most people are either stuck in the parking lot or jammed up on 95 right now, so not...

Let Them Play! Let Them Play!

Who doesn't love the Bad News Bears by the way? Anyway, if I was calling the shots we'd send everybody home, I'd plug 3 quotes from coach Joe into my story and get home at a half-decent hour. That's just me. That's how I roll. But I know one dude...

8:25 Kickoff??

It's pretty bad out here folks and this field is going to be a pigpile when they do play. Word is they think it'll blow over and they are aiming for 8:25 kick, but that's far from certain. Hope I didn't leave any windows cracked in my piece-of-crap Jetta. Yikes....

Big Storm A Brewin'

We might be in trouble here, big weather concerns. Just cut warm-ups off - not that anyone needed to warm up tonight - and ordered all fans to the concourse. Serious lightning on the way, and not sure how long of a delay it will be, if any, for the...

Kendall Reax/Hello Fred Beasley

Skins have agreed to terms with FB Fred Beasley from what I hear - more on that in a minute. As for Kendall: In a nutshell, the Redskins overpaid for a 34-year old guard - same ol story there - and have again taken aim at a future year's draft,...

Waiting on Dallas and Dee

To the best any of us schlubs could tell, draft pick LB Dallas Sartz and free agent RB Dee Brown were not out there for practice. We are awaiting word from the team in why they missed practice, and if they are indeed still part of the organization. Other than...

Lemar Marshall Released

This just in on the phone from Jason: The Redskins have released linebacker Lemar Marshall, whose production last season was affected by injuries and, consequently, had fallen somewhat out of favor with the team. Still, he was a solid special teams guy and knew how to play every linebacker position...

Brunell Update

There has been no recent phone call from Atlanta to the Redskins. Spoke to numerous people who would know if there had been. There hasn't. The Falcons called once about Mark early in camp and were told the Skins had no interest in dealing him. Since then, even in the...

What We Learned

Overall, the first team offense did what all of you guys were hoping it would. Whole lot to like about that game if you're a Skins fan. But let's start with the only thing everyone will ever remember about that game - the sight of Jason Campbell's plant foot getting...
