Redskins Insider: April 13, 2008 - April 19, 2008

Positional Review - O Line

I expect the Redskins to focus significant draft energy along the line, with age and health a major issue with the O Line. Randy Thomas and Jon Jansen are again coming off surgery and lost seasons. Pete Kendall has arthritic knees. Getting 2-3 more quality seasons out of all three...

Missing An Old Friend

It's impossible to drive up to Philly for hockey games and not think of my old friend Dave Fay, who passed away after a long and valiant battle with cancer a year ago. Dave was a mentor to me and for five years on the Caps beat - Dave with...

Positional Review - WR/TE

The Redskins revolving door of possible solutions to their need at wide receiver has never closed. The team never replaced, gaps, Gardner, Rod, if you can imagine that. Honestly, much as this will pain the blog collective, the dude did put up some decent numbers despite all the drops...

Chad Johnson On The Warpath, Again

As I wrote about months ago, Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato have a thing for Chad Johnson. It was a staple of their interviews with head coaching candidates. He would fill what they believe to be the biggest void on the team, or at least so they told several of...

Caps Blog

All you football-only diehards, sorry to disappoint you, but I'm gonna take a detour here. Been covering this Caps/Flyers series pretty closely and just figured I'd clear out my head and notebook on the offday before driving back up to Philly for Game 4 tomorrow. I love that Caps...

Positional Review - RB/FB

We'll get through every position before the draft - promise, been sidetracked with my hockey work - and figured we'd continue with the glamour boys after beginning with quarterback last week. Clinton Portis is the favorite son of this owner, and Portis's sway and influence with former Coach Joe...

Santana Moss Update

Jason Reid reports that Jason Campbell and the wide receivers were indeed working together today (with only Antawn Randle El missing with an excused absence) at Redskins Park and spoke with Campbell and Moss. Here's Reid's report: Because of a groin injury, wide receiver Santana Moss did not participate in...

Schedule This

It doesn't take a rocket scientist, head of state, or, well, even a corporate lawyer to figure out the Skins are gonna be tested early. The schedule make did rookie head coach Jim Zorn no favors, and by mid October I'm sure you guys will be weighing in on...

It's the 2008 Schedule!

Sept. 21 1 p.m.: Arizona at Redskins (Noted partier...

Waiting....Waiting....for 2 p.m.

Jasno is on his way to Philly; he'll post some schedule analysis when he arrives. Stay tuned here and on Maske's NFL Insider. Like you, we're just waiting to see how these games will fall, when they'll get a bye (the later, the better in my book). Arizona at Redskins...

In The Tank

In a blog recently concerning the Redskins' spending, I made reference to owner Daniel Snyder's other businesses being "in the tank." David Donovan, the Redskins' General Counsel, took issue with this and sent a letter to washingtonpost.com and The Washington Post complaining that the statement unfairly and inaccurately characterized Snyder's...
