Redskins Insider: August 10, 2008 - August 16, 2008

Halftime Report

The first half was less than the kind of showcase for sharp, effective play that you'd expect to see at this point, at least from the offense. Defense played pretty well. Here's a quick update: Campbell 4 of 10 for 28 yards; Collins 7 of 11 for 45; Devine one...

Don't Drive Up Here (At Least Not Through Delaware)

Uggh, crazy long drive up here. Took 4-plus hours, leaving from my parent's house in Bmore. I can usually make that in 2 1/2. Delaware just killed everything. Crazy-long backups. But on the bright side I listened to WFAN (660) most of the way up and felt wamr and fuzzy...

Framing the Past to Evaluate the Future

It's only natural that we compare the present to the past. And Jim Zorn is about to enter his first season as an NFL coach in the shadow of a legend, Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs. But in fairness to Zorn, I think some perspective is in order. If you...

ARE, Rogers To Be Game-Time Decisions

Taylor Returns to Practice Field

It's looking like another spirited practice this morning, with the Skins in full pads. Jason Taylor and his plantar fasciitis are back on the field and is, as Jasno says, dancing the morning away. Shawn Springs returns, too. We'll see who hits and who gets hit this morning. Antwaan Randle...

Time to ask "Who's on the Bubble?"

I'm starting to worry about my man Chris Wilson making the team. Wilson was one of the real feel-good stories of 2007, coming out of nowhere (Norwood College and the CFL) to win a job and contribute on third down and special teams. But he's a DE, and all of...
