Erasmus James Update

The Skins new DE reported to Redskins Park today but did not take his physical. It's now scheduled for Thursday.

The Redskins are not concerned about his ability to pass the medical tests and are viewing the deal with the Vikings as a completed trade even though James failed his physical with Minnesota. They aren't worried about it, and these physicals are often highly subjective as well with the standards varying by team. If you really want a guy to pass a physical and he has all his limbs then it can pretty much happen. (I know of several teams in recent years that failed current Redskins Rocky McIntosh, Stephon Heyer and Malcom Kelly coming out of college, for instance).

As I noted yesterday, you can't knock this move. James has some upside and yes the ACL is a concern both short and long-term. But for a 7th round pick, why not take a shot? Especially with such an overt need at his position.

Randoms: Got a chance to watch the US-England this afternoon. If you are Tivo-ing this thing I'd advice you to erase it without watching (unless you're down withthe Union Jack, in which case you'll have plenty to enjoy. Beyond ugly from a US standpoint, even accounting for Donovan's injury. If they show up like this against Spain a week from now it could be 5-0, or worse, given all the attacking options and speed on the flank they'll face ... Look like my man Chris Osgood is in good shape to snag the Conn Smythe with the Red Wings. Pretty amazing story there that's seemingly gone un-reported on in the US press. The level of hockey in this postseason overall has been superb. Kudos to the NHL.

Flying Doctor (Hawkwind)

***LONG FUNNY LYRICS CUT N PASTE***

He sneaks through the door of the surgery
He's got the drug cabinet key
He did something funny and he tied up his arm
It's just the flying doctor, no cause for alarm
He sprinkled out a powder and spread out a line
He sniffed it up his nostril and he's feeling so fine
Feeling so fine, it feels like he's flying
Feeling so fine, it feels like he's flying
His receptionist saw him, it certainly shocked her
She said "Look out, you'd better duck,
Here comes the Flying Doctor"

Out in the outback, there's been an outbreak
And the Flying Doctor's got nothing to take
He went to the cabinet and the cabinet was bare
His eyes dilated, you can see by his stare.
Called up his base on the radio,
He said; "My supplies are running low,
They're running low, you can see where they go
They're running low, I see where they go"
Out in the outback with my Percival Proctor
Look out you'd better duck,
Here comes the Flying Doctor

He's got the cabinet key,
The drug cabinet key, the cabinet key...

"This is the Flying Doctor calling Wallarolla base
Wallorola base come in please...
I want to talk to you about my drugs situation...
My drug situation is rather tight...
About as tight as a kangaroo's khyber, I'd say"

Cabinet key, cabinet key...

"Wake up ! - One, two, three, four"

A Sheila in the bush by a Koolahbar tree
Needed an urgent appendectomy
The Flying Doctor like a true Australian,
Performed the operation with a sardine can
He made a rough incision and tried to chew it out,
He had no anaesthetic, so she started to shout,
She started to shout, when he was chewing it out,
She started to shout, he tried to chew it right out,
He balled up his fist and scientifically socked her,
Look out you'd better duck,
Here comes the Flying Doctor

***Another Hawkwind Lyrics post***

Shoals of dead fish float on the lakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars
And science is making the same mistakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars
No one down here knows how to work the brakes,
but Uncle Sam's on Mars

Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on
Mars, he's on Mars

Layers of smoke in the atmosphere have made the earth
too hot to bear
The Earth might be a desert soon, America has left
the Moon

Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on Mars, Uncle Sam's on
Mars, he's on Mars

He's digging for dreams in the red sand
He's got his bucket and spade in his left hand
He's digging for dreams
He's looking for life

What's he doing out there?
He's looking for life
Looking for life
There may be life out there

(Nixon to Armstrong - July 21st 1969:)
I'm talking to you by telephone from the Oval Room in the White House.
And this certainly must be the most exciting telephone
call ever made here on Earth. I just can't tell
you how proud we all are. For every American this
has to be the proudest day of their lives. And
for people all over the world, I'm sure they too
join with us in recognising what a tremendous
achievement this is. For one priceless moment
in the whole history of Man......

And he's looking for life
Looking for life to wind up
He's looking for life to stamp out
He's looking for life to grind out
He's looking for life, so mind out

I hope you brought your credit card with you, and I hope you know how to
drive on these long, lonely freeways and intersections we've got up
here. We've got two cars in the garage, two cars in the garage, and
drum-majorettes in white ankle socks and baton twirling on Sundays.
We've got stripes and the stars and Uncle Sam's on, Uncle Sam's on, Uncle
Sam's on, Mars....

A nude maid is accused of really cleaning up at a Florida man's home. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said a 50-year-old man hired the maid from the Internet on Friday to clean his Tampa home.

Authorities said the woman arrived at the home in a one-piece, light colored dress. She took off the dress and cleaned the house for $100-per-hour. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Carter said the man told deputies he left the maid alone in the bedroom to clean.

When the man's wife came home from vacation, she discovered $40,000 in jewelry missing from their bedroom.

the punchline, "fall off anyway" refers to the guy who goes to an exotic place, meets an exotic woman and comes down with an exotic disease. In pain, he goes to a doc who says he'll remove it for $500. Not wanting to part with such a significant organ, the guy proceeds to get 2nd 3rd and 4th opinions who all offer the exact same service. A fifth doc examines him and proclaims all the other doctors to be rip-off artists ... just wait a few more days and it will fall off by itself.

True story. As my sister was 7 months pregnant with kid #2, her and her Aussie husband were looking at names. The middle name was set. Myer, after his grandfather. So my brother-in-law, innocently suggests a first name, "what about Oscar?" Which leaves my sister rolling on the floor in hysterics saying she will not name the kid Oscar Myer. And my brother-in-law is wondering what he said ... as Oscar Meyer products were not in Australia.

Hawai'i state flag info, 'coat:

http://www.netstate.com/states/symb/flags/hi_flag.htm

King Kamehameha made it so, in 1845.

"The eight alternating white, red and blue stripes represent the eight islands of Hawaii. The British Union Jack represents Hawaii's historical relationship with Great Britian as its protectorate. It also represents a stylized puela (a triangular standard laying across two crossed spears called an alia) which is the symbol of the Hawaiian ali'i."

Cowboys want Glenn to sign injury settlement

Last week, wide receiver Terry Glenn revealed that the Cowboys were keeping him out of the team's off-season workouts. Now we know why the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

According to Glenn, the team has asked him to sign a $500,000 injury settlement -- relieving them of any further obligation if he is sidelined for the season due to his surgically repaired right knee. If Glenn was injured without the waiver, the team would be on the hook for his entire 2008 salary of $1.74 million. So far, Glenn has declined to sign the waiver and has not been allowed to participate in the "organized team activity" workouts the past two weeks.

For the Cowboys, its simply a business decision. For Glenn, it's evidence that the Cowboys are not as confident in his recovery and rehab as they say they are.

"I should have seen this coming," Glenn said via text message

Newman says Williams is 'a deer in the headlights'

After signing a long-term contract extension that will likely keep him in Dallas for the rest of his career, Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman gave an interview to Mike Doocy of Fox 4 in Dallas. And in that interview, he had some critical things to say about a teammate who may not be in Dallas much longer according to Profootballtalk.com

When asked about safety Roy Williams, Newman started off by saying that Williams had shown talent in coverage earlier in his career, but then he veered off course and added, "He's the same guy, I think, he just sometimes gets kind of a deer in the headlights reaction, some plays. . . . He had a bad season last year, as far as coverage."

Later in the interview, Newman again started off defending his teammate, only to criticize him again. When asked directly whether Williams hurt the team, Newman answered, "I definitely don't think he's a liability." But then he added of Williams, "He's got to keep his weight down and work in the weight room, getting stronger."

Although Newman didn't sound like he was trying to rip Williams, he did sound as though he wasn't particularly impressed with Williams. That could be a sign that if Williams doesn't last much longer with the Cowboys, his teammates won't be terribly disappointed. One person Newman is impressed with is fellow cornerback Pacman Jones. Said Newman of Jones, "The guy just seems cool as heck."

Dr. Jerrah Jones believes that the right combination of future draft picks will help snag a topnotch receiver via trade after June 1, such as Chad Johnson, or Detroit Williams, or Anquan Boldin. Trades after June 1 allow the former team to spread the cap hit of non-amortized bonus over two years.

I wonder whether the League has to approve this trade. It seems like it contravenes the spirit of the waiver wire process. The only difference between this deal (esp. where he doesn't make the roster and the Skins don't lose a pick) is that it SEEMS like the Skins would be required to assume the Vikings obligations under James' contract ... which I presume also means that, if James does NOT make the roster, his salary would be counted toward "dead cap" space ... I think.

Trading for James allowed the Redskins to also acquire the last two years of his contract, at relatively cheap salaries. But salary isn't earned until the regular season weekly paychecks (unlike bonuses, which are earned on the award date), so there isn't any dead cap on base salary. If James is cut before the regular season, there won't be a cap effect.

I wonder whether the League has to approve this trade. It seems like it contravenes the spirit of the waiver wire process. The only difference between this deal (esp. where he doesn't make the roster and the Skins don't lose a pick) is that it SEEMS like the Skins would be required to assume the Vikings obligations under James' contract ... which I presume also means that, if James does NOT make the roster, his salary would be counted toward "dead cap" space ... I think.

Posted by: dcsween | May 29, 2008 1:43 PM

Sween, the effect of trading a player is similar to cutting the player in the offseason. When a team trades or cuts a player during an offseason, the remaining portion of his prorated signing bonus is accelerated to the team that traded or cut him. Accordingly, the Vikings would take on dead money from the prorated signing bonus. From their prospective, they would have taken this cap hit anyway regardless of whether EJ is traded or cut. Redskins will only assume his normal cap hit from the salary if he makes the team. Because the salaries are not guaranteed, if Redskins cut EJ they will owe him nothing and nothing will count against the cap.

I'm really dying for some football news up here ... anything ... pft isn't even enough to feed the monster.

pft says that, like the first guard selected (Brandon Albert), the second guard selected, Chilo Rachel, is ALSO being moved to play tackle. I wonder whether any of the guards selected are actually going to play guard. Either of those guys would have been playing guard here.

Of the "insider" information, my fave read recently has been Ross Tucker at si.com ... I like the stuff he choose to write about ... and he writes well. Plus, he actually played football ... in the NFL (and HERE so he occasionally drops names of Skins). I hope he keeps writing for a real long time.

Hello, my name is Skippy and I have a metal plate in my head. i live with Mama and the twins of my dead sister in a doublewide, down the row from Floyd, the Truck Drivin' Man in his Peterbilt. I really really like Lemon Meringue Pie. Skippy's blob is at Askskippy.blogspot,.com

And now Skippy has to remember to forget his point. Oh right. Whoever insulted Skippy as being "weird funny" not "ha ha funny," at who Skippy laughs up his shorts, because he doesn't have a foot to stand up.

Skippy is no Occidental Comedian. Skippy works delusionally on his comedy. He works on consigliariment, too.

Take for incident, when Skippy recently was hired by the lonely and targeted actress Sherman Stoned. Ever since her career was snatched away from her, she has all but disintigrated. Short of displaying her Venus Flytrap again, she needed major pubicity to restark her career, Skippy said.

So Skippy told her to clam the earth quack in China was caused by Bad Parma. She also said it was because they closed the LLama Deli, wherever that is.

Ha!

We all know the earth quack was really caused by Unclear Weapons Testing by the Pinko Chinese. Both George Bush W. and former Pest Secretary Stop McLellman both said so. But Three billion Chinamen--excuse Skippy for the Politicial Incorruptness--he means 1.5 billion Chinamen and 1.5 billion Chinawomen can't be wong.

So as soon as they herd that's what she said, the Chinese boycotted and girlcotted Sharon Snatches Primary Aspect, her moneymaker.

This got her all that publicity, mostly from people who thought she threw up in her panties and had left the sliver screed entirely. In other words abandoned the crap of acting. Okay, that's a stretch. Let's just say Sherman Stoned retarded from acting in the movies and flim.

Then when she apologized for her Karman Ghia comment, she got even more publicity. And as they say in the publicity biz, the only bad pube is no pubes at all.

So stick that in your Ukelele and smoke it, wise aleck!

Fondly,

Skippy

Thought this article was interesting in regards to our old defesive line questions:

I must acknowledge that Daniels hasn't exactly been the sackmaster recently. His sack totals have steadily declined since 2005 from 8 to 3 to 2.5 last season. His tackles haven't moved in the right direction, either, from 48 total in 2005 to 37 in both '06 and '07. But tackling and sacks (and the latter requires the former) is not the only thing a defensive end can do to help the defense.

Sacks aren't some glorious end in and of themselves, even if fans love watching them. They're great because they kill the opponent's down while also taking from them some yards. Even when they fail to accomplish the yardage decrease by any substantial amount, sacks are still extremely valuable for the defense. A negative inches sack is still a useful means towards the ultimate end of forcing the other poor bastard to die three times then punt. Another, comparably debilitating means towards that end is swatting the ball down. It doesn't get the yards, it isn't nearly as sexy a stat as the sack, but it always kills the opponent's down and sometimes leads to an immediate possession change; batted passes sometimes get intercepted.

Phillip Daniels is a ball-hawk. At least in so far as the term can be used for defensive linemen.

Posted by: rb | May 30, 2008 6:59 PM | Report abuse

A little Skins news:


The Washington Redskins (web|news) on Friday signed free agent safety Justin Hamilton and released undrafted rookie defensive back Stephen Tate.

Hamilton played one season with the
Cleveland Browns after being selected in the seventh round from Virginia Tech in the 2006 draft. He was cut from the Browns after last year's training camp and did not play during the 2007 season.

Tate signed with the Redskins on May 19.

More On Snyder's Possible Purchase Of SportsTalk 980 - 5/29 - DCRTV hears more about that possible Clear Channel deal to sell SportsTalk 980, WTEM, plus talkers WTNT and WWRC, to Redskins owner Dan Snyder (right). If the contract is signed, it will have to be a lease agreement in the short term, until the big Clear Channel corporate buyout is completed, we're told. We also hear that Snyder would have to move ESPN sports radio programming, which he airs on his Triple X sports talker, to the powerful 980 signal. So, what would happen to 980's current lineup of Fox Sports and local talkers, like John Thompson, Steve Czaban, and Rick Walker? Maybe get moved to some of Snyder's other less-powerful area frequencies? Stay tuned. More in DCRTV's 5/28 newsblurb.....

Scooped Post Reports Snyder May Purchase TEM - 5/30 - In Friday's DC Post, pathetic Paul Farhi doesn't acknowledge that he got scooped by DCRTV two days ago when he reports that Redskins owner Dan Snyder "is moving closer to an agreement" to buy Clear Channel's SportsTalk 980, WTEM, and talkers WTNT and WWRC.....

Someone--be it JASNO, Cindy or an Intern needs to ratchet up the Blog.

I went over to the Redskins.dot com and they are ALL OVER some stories not reported here.

Larry Michaels, started to hint that Clinton Portis might have possibly been the least bit critical of the intensity of off season activity, but then quickly saw visions of his gig flash before his eyes and then suggested instead that they really need to get Portis's hot ride on the show. Just solid journalism.

If that wasn't enough, they also blew the lid off the fact that certain Redskins were present when some Middle school kids were at Redskin Park, and promised a full report Monday. I'm on Tenterhooks.

Also there was a some great insider video of two Redskin linemen sitting on a blocking sled and video from about eight miles away of Redskin backup clipboard Holder Dan (Dave? Doug?) Devine practicing his boxing Skilz. Oooo, I hope Bill Belicheat doesn't get hold of this video!

The point is: REDSKINS.COM is about as much about covering real Redskin News as Fox is about covering Real political news.

They are both House Organs designed to bring the good news about their employer. (One major dif. REDSKINS.COM doesn't rip the Cowboys, just promotes the Skins. Fox of course rips the Dems while promoting the Administration, but you already know that.)

So I HOPE JASNO and Co are back from vacation in force on Monday and manage to get through the Maginot Line Snyder has erected between actual news outlets and his possession.

And let's hope the Post is able to find new inside sources to replace the ones who were cut and/or fired from within Redskin Park.

Snyder needs to learn his Putsch didn't work with the Redskins. We fans deserve to know the good with the bad.

If Snyder wrests away control of those DC radio stations, it may be Game Over. The first rule of dictatorships is seize control of communications. Not that I'm sayin', I'm just sayin'...

things like this might be nice. or since the 1st 2 lines of this post read --"The Skins new DE reported to Redskins Park today but did not take his physical. It's now scheduled for Thursday." --we could get an update on wtf is going on.

Rocky McIntosh continues to show progress rehabbing his knee injury and the third-year linebacker hopes to participate in June OTAs on a limited basis.
His real goal? Be healthy for the start of training camp in mid-July.

"I definitely have my eye on training camp to get out there," he said.

McIntosh suffered a knee ligament injury in Week 15 last season, sidelining him for the final two regular season games and the Redskins' playoff game.

June is the sixth month of McIntosh's rehab. It typically takes at least six months to return from a knee ligament injury, but it's sometimes longer.

Some players don't feel back at full strength until a full year after knee ligament surgery.

"You never know what's going to happen [in rehabbing a knee injury]," McIntosh said. "You just try to stay strong and look to training camp."

The Redskins' OTAs resume on June 2 and continue for a two-week span.

McIntosh hopes to participate in some individual drills.

"Conditioning-wise, I'm good," he said. "Health-wise, I'm getting there. I want to go out there and practice, do some drills and keep on progressing."

He added: "I don't want to run away from anything and I don't want to be left behind."

McIntosh emerged as a starter in his second NFL season, finishing with 105 tackles (70 solo), three sacks and three forced fumbles.

He admitted it was hard to watch from the sidelines as the Redskins completed their run to the postseason, playing in honor of the late Sean Taylor.

"I really wanted to finish last year," he said. "But I have next year to go out there and do it again. I just want to go out there and make people proud--make Sean proud of me to go out there and play like he would."

I feel like if Jasno's updating us on soccer and cricket, or whatever that other sport was, then he could step up with some insight into the NCAA Women's Softball College World Series. Now that's some hot summertime action. I just hope it doesn't come out that Arizona State wins by taping the other teams' signals or that the girls are doped up on margaritas.

DE Wynn agrees to deal with Giants
by Mike Garafolo/The Star-Ledger
Sunday June 01, 2008, 11:11 PM
The Giants, who won a Super Bowl thanks to the belief that "you can never have enough pass rushers," have added one more.

The team came to terms on a one-year deal with veteran free-agent defensive end Renaldo Wynn this weekend, according to someone informed of the progress of talks between Wynn and the team. The person, who requested anonymity because the deal hasn't been signed or announced yet, did not provide financial terms.

The 6-3, 296-pound Wynn, who will turn 34 on Sept. 3 -- the day before the Giants open the regular season with a home game against the Redskins -- will become the second free agent who previously played for Tom Coughlin to sign with the Giants. Linebacker Danny Clark, who played three seasons for Coughlin with the Jaguars, signed in March.

Jacksonville drafted Wynn with the 21st overall pick in 1997 and he became a starter midway through the season. After notching a career-high five sacks in 2001, Wynn signed with the Redskins and remained in Washington for the next five seasons. Last year, he had 3½ sacks in 12 games with the Saints.

Nate,

With the Nate impersonation that's been going on I'm not sure if it was the real Nate or fake Nate that asked me, but....

In response to your question May 30, 10:06pm... I did not make it to the Beach blitz this year as I was out of town at the In-Laws place up in Bethany Beach, DE... I haven't talked to anyone that was there either. I did go last year and it was pretty cool... Their NFL experience setup in the VB Convention Center was fun. My 3 year old son at the time had a good time as well... I got Dexter's Autograph and a few others, but no Marquee names besides him... The down side is there are so many people there to get autographs and they have sessions spread out throughout the day, but you don't know who is going to be a what Autograph session, so that was a bit annoying. You could easily kill a day or two in there just trying to get some Autographs... I just miseed Gary Clarks... It's all about timing. Hopefully, this year they provided more info as to who would be where and when... That would be nice, I'm not sure if they did that. As always (the past 5-10 years) the Cheerleaders were Hot! I didn't get to see any players at the Tailgate party by the Hilton at 31st Street, but I talked to alot people that had blast with some of the players that were drinking at the Catch-31 bar Fri or Sat evening... Apparently the first year it was here Cooley was into chillin at the bar and hanging out... I heard last year he's was low-key and had his Fiancee attached at the hip, but that could of just been heresay... It's hard to say.

I also did read some posts on Extremeskins about a guy (this year) eating dinner with his wife at Catch-31; Sellers and Eddie Jackson were hanging out at the bar and Jackson came over to their table to greet them ask them how they were doing, if they were having a good time, etc... Some other people got hang out with Sellers and got some pics with him as well...

As far as Training Camp coming down all I've really heard is what Jason wrote in an article and on the blog and I believe there was an article written down here about it a few months back. But nothing more than what JLC has already said... I think it would be awesome. They would certainly have plenty of support and I'm sure all the tourists/vacationers would only add to it all. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it happens, but like JLC said the Redskins and City will have to agree on how to upgrade the facilities sufficiently to support an NFL team for a month or so every year. I think that will be the deciding factor!
