Redskins Insider: December 30, 2007 - January 5, 2008

"Our 12th Man"

There are three dudes in Cooley jerseys in the front row of the stadium, right behind the Skins bench, with a huge sign that has Sean Taylor on it. Above the picture of Sean, who is turned with his back facing and number showing, are the words: "Our 12th Man"...

Inactives

Seattle without Deoin Branch. That's a big loss. He's a talented WR who works the slot well in their offense. Skins without James Thrash, as expected. Here's all the inactives Redskins Jasom Campbell Omar Stoutmire Brian Kazlowski Ryan Boschetti Kevin Sampson Alex Buzbee Seattle Branch Kevin Hobbs Logan Payne Jason...

Hello From Seattle

P Diddy rocks. Prashant is the man. Want to thank him sincerely for the food and drink and good times he provided last night. Nate, Dave, Chris, Jeff ... everyone was super cool. We had a blast and hope to see as many of you guys again tonight as possible....

7:50 a.m. (EST) Gameday

Loseable Type just "Papelbon's dogged" my previous post. Gack. Anywho (to quote Jasno, who I hope is sound asleep), we need a new thread because the other page is taking too long to load--not a good thing for a bunch of hungover, gameface-ready-for-two-weeks-now, eager/anxious fans. Don't miss this story in...

Skins/Seahawks Scouting Report

Spoke to a high-ranking personnel official from an NFC club this week who does advance scout work. He has studied both the Seahwaks and Redskins this season and we went over this gamer in detail. He referenced his notes on both teams and pointed out what he thought would...

Pedro Taylor On Comcast

My friends at Comcast have pulled off something pretty cool for this weekend and I urge the RI faithful to watch their pre and post game coverage Saturday. Perdor Taylor, father of slain safety Sean Taylor, will be onset with them from Bethesda this weekend, the network said. Here's the...

Campbell and Thrash

James Thrash is the only person in doubt at this point. He missed practice again with his high ankle sprain and it would not appear very likely he will play, but the team does not have to list his status until Friday. Also had a good chat with Jason Campbell....

The Collins Conundrum

I'm getting more and more emails asking my take about the quarterback situation, so I'll throw my two cents out there. Ride Todd for now - though I personally would not be opposed to giving Jason Campbell a shot should he get healthy deep in the playoffs - but this...

Injuries

Obviously, Jason Campbell remains out. He did throw a little bit on the side today, I am told, for the second time. But the last time his knee swelled up some, so they will have to guage how he progresses this week. Campbell was the only player not on the...

Walk Through

Cold as hell back there on the practice field. Ouch. Anyway, not much going on. Too windy to throw a decent pass. Most of the players were in sweats - no numbers on the back - and from a rough count, everyone was out there. Guys who are banged up...

Party Like A Rock Star, West Coast Style

Diddy, one of the OGs on this blog and the official West Coast Culture, Starlets and Booze correspondent for RI, is organizing a bash for Friday night in Seattle, home to Hendrix, Cobain, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Queensryche, Heart ... and my personal favorite of the bunch, Mudhoney. Diddy has long been...

Guest Blog - John

Hey Jason, It's nearly midnight 12/30 and I'm still reeling from the win! I needed an outlet for all this overwhelming inspiration. I am so proud to be a Redskin today and I'm sure my fellow fans (and R.I. readers) feel the same way. Hope you don't mind me sending...

Chief Taylor

Just got off the phone with Chief Pedro Taylor. He sounded overjoyed at what the Redskins have accomplished. "It's outstanding," he said, speaking in a rapid-fire cadence unlike his normal speech, clearly excited to talk Redskins. "It's awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome! They have a great organization and great coaches and...

Monday Afternoon H-Back

Redemption all around. Full marks to the entire organization, Daniel Snyder on down. Quite an accomplishment even getting this far, and I don't think they're done yet. Coach Joe Gibbs, obviously, deserves a tremendous amount of credit for getting this thing turned around. And Gregg Williams, who took a lot...

A Message From Chief Taylor

Got a text from Pedro Taylor, Sean's father, and the chief of police of Florida City, Florida. Chief Taylor gave a hugely inspirational and emotional speech to the team at Redskins Park after Sean was murdered, and his message to win their remaining games and somehow get to the playoffs...

Redskins are without Jason Campbell, Keenan McCardell, Omar Stoutmire, Brian Kozlowski, Alex Buzbee, Ryan Boschetti and Kevin Sampson. Sam Hollenbach is the No. 3 QB....

Ahmad's Guest Blog

Ahmad/Fourth Floor shared his thoughts about today's game, and this day in general. He lost his baby girl in April, and today would have been her birthday. Anyone who was not with us on the blog back then can read check the archives here - A Friend in Need....
