Blogging From The Road

Won't be at Redskins Park today. Took the day off to drive Lauren and the kids up to my in-laws in the Cooperstown area, then I fly back tonight and head to Minnesota this weekend. So I won't be able to update the blog today while driving, and Jason Reid...

Safety Net

Safety Omar Stoutmire, re-signed Wednesday, could end up being active this week. There is some concern that starting free safety LaRon Landry was unable to run much at all today and missed practice with his quad injury. Veteran safety Pierson Prioleau is having a hamstring problem, which leaves only second-year...

Injuries/Other Stuff (Updated)

Gregg Williams will never reveal who his starters are, but talking to him today you got the feeling that Randall Godfrey is going to be in the mix stopping the run against the NFL's premier rushing team. HB Blades and Khary Campbell will be involved too, but especially lining up...

Relax on the Cap Crisis Talk, Trust Jasno On This One

You gotta trust me on this one guys. Think back to 1985, when you were walking around in your Frankie Goes To Hollywood oversized t-shirt. Just relax. It's gonna be alright. Yes, the Skins are 20 million over, but with the way they operate it's not a big deal. Spoke...

Omar Stoutmire Coming Back

According to league sources, the oft-signed-and-released safety has agreed to terms and is on his way back. The Skins have some ailing safeties, with Vernon Fox and Pierson Prioleau nicked in the Giants game they need reinforcements. I imagine this is why they were willing to let CB John Eubanks...

Odds and Ends

Santana Moss and Clinton Portis were sent home with the stomach flu, but both are expected to be fine for the weekend. Gibbs decided to cancel practice today and do more of a walk-thru today, after such a physical game Sunday night, but will return to normal practice Thursday. TE...

Roster Moves\Griffin Update

Alex Buzbee, a rookie DE from Georgetown, has been promoted to the active roster after spending all season on the practice squad. CB John Eubanks, who is suffering from an infected toe, is not listed on the roster. I imagine he may have been placed on IR but am awaiting...

Three Redskins Make Pro Bowl

Jason Reid calls in another update: It's no real surprise, just nice that it's finally official, that Sean Taylor has been elected to the NFC's Pro Bowl team, given that he has been one of the leading vote-getters. Chris Cooley and Chris Samuels also were elected. Fullback Mike Sellers is...

Rocky's Take

Jason Reid just caught up with Rocky and passed along some quotes from him (Jasno is heading out to do Comcast now, and he's writing the story for the paper). Obviously this is a huge longterm injury and Rocky might not be able to get on the field at all...

Playoff Clarity

Well, we can finally throw all those crazy scenarios out the window. Skins need to win Sunday. Period. And they'll probably need to beat the Cowboys, too. We all basically knew it all along, but in the wacky NFL you see some wild stuff. Minnesota looked pretty bad last night...

ROCKY - TORN ACL and MCL

This is not good at all for the starting weak-side linebacker, Rocky McIntosh. He's out 9-12 months at least and the history of these injuries is that it is often not until the second season after surgery that the player is back fully feeling well. It is almost impossible to...

Rocky McIntosh Sounds Like He's Out For The Season

Rocky, who had a nice season starting for the first time, will likely need surgery from what Coach Joe said. Did not sound good. They have good linebacker depth, however, with rookie H.B. Blades and valuable veterans Randall Godfrey and Khary Campbell. If you made me guess, considering they are...

Monday Afternoon (Barely) H-Back

Just wanted to point out some stuff from the game. (Also, the staff is still awaiting word on Rocky McIntosh's MRI). First of all, thought they did a tremendous job of not turning the ball over despite the crazy conditions. Turnovers have killed the Skins on the road -...

Injuries/Playoffs To Tide You Over

Hey guys, behind it a bit here - really late night driving back, rough morning. Anyway, have a lot of kudos to throw around in the Monday Afternoon (hopefully??) H-Back and will get that up when I get a second to catch my breath. Still awaiting word on Rocky...

Is It Monday Night Yet?

As Jasno makes his way back from Joizey, Paul Tenorio sends this dispatch from Redskins Park: Players this morning seemed relatively upbeat a day after beating the New York Giants to stay alive in the playoff race. With next week's opponent - and a major foe in the fight for...

Inactives/Other Stuff

Injured QB Jason Campbell, WR Anthony Mix, CB John Eubanks (infected toe), TE Brian Kozlowski, LB Randall Godfrey, C Mike Pucillo, and DL Ryan Boschetti are inactive. For the Giants, return specialist David Tyree is a late scratch after his mother died of a heart attack Saturday night. The Skins...

Happy Festivus (A Wee Bit Early)

Someone suggested a Festivus entry (I believe it was Toddcoat, TBFKA Redcoat). Today seems like the perfect day, even though purists will note that the official date of Festivus is Dec. 23, since I was greeted this morning by this message: The common cluster was down again for several hours...
