Justin Hickman

Forgot to check up on him until just now, when I ran into Bubba. Hickman is the undrafted DE they signed out of UCLA, who had some pretty strong performances his last two seasons in college. DeWayne Walker, former coach here now D Coordinator for UCLA, had some pretty good things to say about the kid when I spoke to DeWayne a few weeks back, thought me could play in the league.

Well, Hickman hurt his knee at the start of the final day of rookie camp last month. Since then, Bubba said the player has been doing rehab in California but is to report here for the start of mini camp next Thursday. Hickman has a bone bruise in his knee and will be re-evaluated when he gets back to town. Bubba said there is a chance he may be able to get on the field for mini-camp, but they just won't know until they get a chance to check him out.

Given the issues at DE, he's someone I was kind of keeping my eye on.

Jason, on the music front, you gotta check out this group called Mew. They are tight.

On the football tip, are we going after Darwin Walker? Seems to be a younger Reynaldo Wynn except with the ability to rush the QB and stop the run.

Trent Green is a Dolphin. He will play QB behind a line that allowed 41 sacks last season, more than 2 1/2 per game. Wouldn't it be nice to start with a confidence builder for the D-line. We'll see how Green does outside of Saunder's offense. There are horses for courses.

The sacks in Miami last year had as much to do with one-legged Daunte "S-L-O-W release" Culpepper and Joey "dancing shoes" Harrington as they did with the O-line. Harrington was out of the pocket before they snapped the ball sometimes!

However Green does, we can't stink the place up any worse than we have the last few years.

A directional antenna for $35 bucks from Radio Shack works better for HDTV than any Turk or other supposed HDTV-specific antenna and takes no time to install. I was amazed at how good it was. Works rain or shine and gets some of the local stations you may never have noticed before. They all tend to be on the same tower somewhere.

WHUR Goes NASCAR - 6/5 - Howard University's WHUR (96.3 FM) made an impressive finish Saturday, 6/2, at the NASCAR Busch East Series in South Boston, Virginia, coming in 4th place in the 150-lap South Boston Speedway race. The event marked the first time an urban radio station has sponsored a NASCAR race. WHUR was the primary sponsor of car #92 driven by 16-year-old Joe Gibbs Diversity Driver Marc Davis. Davis, a native Washingtonian, rounded the curves of the South Boston Speedway in his Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS virtually unscathed in a race that ended with a seven-car pile-up. No one was hurt. Also, WHUR is sponsoring Davis at a September race at the Dover Speedway in Delaware. That's Davis with WHUR General Manager Jim Watkins (right). Marc Davis is the son of retired Channel 4/WRC cameraman Harry Davis.....

Jm220, I call a sport high contact when you can hear bodies mashing and the injuries, not the owwies, need medical attention happen. Believe me, soccer is high contact. No, it isn't two men, teams, lining up on opposites sides of the ball and bashing into one another on every play, one of the things we love about NFL football, but it is a contact sport, high degree of contact. You should get out more.
My workouts are 3 sets (5 minute breaks) of 50 (150) pushups (150) and 3 sets of 15 (45) pullups (not chinups) and five miles, and major stretches (not a contact sport). No plates, no weights. 5' 8", 130lbs of hard, defined body. No hammy, no hemmy and legs that pump like pistons. People ask me how I do it. I work at it every day. Everyday is upper body and leg day. Not bad for 54 yrs old, kid.

Best-case scenario:
Redskins go 13-3 loosing only to Patriots, Jets, and Bears.

More likely they split the games with Philadelphia and New York (beat the Cowgirls twice) and lose to someone else (Tampa/Packers?).

So, 10-6 seems realistic.

Looks like Gibbs is starting to look like the "old Joe Gibbs" if Bramlet's numbers show what he will do in Spring training. The offense will be much improved in spite of being short a receiver or 2.

On defense I sure hope they try to give the young guys every chance to do well. Age is an issue at end. I think Daniels will still be around particularly given his impact on the cap if released. I guess I see them trying everything to replace Wynn. If they went for 3-4-4 Golston, Montgomery, and Griffin would start. Andre Carter would be in for pass rushing or back to linebacker. Maybe both. Then would they still need an end? I suppose a lot depends on what Golston, Montgomery, Carter, and Griffin show. Along with the undrafted and free agent pick-ups ... or if Schobel should suddenly come along.

Posted by: periculum | June 6, 2007 6:43 PM | Report abuse

Stumped, you got it right brotha, when you're on the high side. Redskins 2007-- worst to first. We have an offense that will bury opponents who'll spend al game long throwing deep trying to play catch-up, which is the perfect formula for ints and sacks.

Hurling is a lot like Lacrosse, except the sticks are more like a field hockey stick, with a bigger blade. and you're allowed to catch the ball with your hand. Most players don't wear any protection although head protection although is compulsory for Under 21's.

There was also an interesting article, (was it Norman Chad?), who said hockey should be broadcast North/South instead of East/West, like tennis. That was probably the most interesting thing I've read about hockey in 5 years.

2. the guy in the doggy house made of net dressed up as JASON(from holloween) with dog training outfit is called the goalie. his job is to prevent the puck from entering the net.

powerplay is the most, check that second most exciting part. it means that one team has a players advantage...could mean 5 to 4 or even 5 to 3 or 4 to 3 and so on...
that happens when there's a major penalty...usually striking someone with your stick...or just plain unnecessary roughness

and it's exciting cuz the chances of scoring increases during power play...
