Back to the Backfield

Reading material to ponder while I lament my failure to successfully bid on the Watergate Hotel. My dream of Cyn Cyty's Hamster Haven dies: When he isn't in training in a pool, marine mammal Paul Tenorio is working the Skins beat. Last month, he evaluated Clinton Portis and the other...

Last month, Paul "PTen" Tenorio ran down the Redskins' key position battles and, with training camp fast approaching, we'll reprise over the next few days.

Dan Steinberg paid attention as former Redskins coach Joe Gibbs appeared on the debut of Mike Wise's show on WJFK. Some of the best stuff concerned the quarterback he drafted, Jason Campbell.

Monday Morning Reading Room

The baby monitor on the 2009 season will be turned off next week, but until then, we're listening for burps and other assorted noises. Here's what we're reading while we await the Final Fan Appreciation Day on twitter by @Dhall23 (he usually takes questions around 6 or 7 p.m.) and...
