Quick Scrimmage Recap (Updated)

Okay, I am going to take a mallet to the head of the guy who invented twitter.

Here's a live commentary on the scrimmage, culled from tweets by J Reid, Rick Maese, Dan Steinberg and others:

Malcolm Kelly, as you would expect, is in helmet and pads; Santana Moss and Devin Thomas are not. Clinton Portis turned heads by wearing a winter hat onto the field (wind chill might be 85). He has since removed it.

Jason Campbell led the QBs onto the field and there was some heckling of Todd "Toddball" Collins.

Steinberg reports that DeAngelo Hall's wife has a D Hall 23 tatoo on her back. Maese reports that in his remarks to fans, Jim Zorn talked told fans the goal was to go to the Super Bowl, mentioned some guy named Keith Barnes and said Colt Brennan would lead the second-team offense against the first-team defense. According to Maese, there was no mention of Collins seeing any action. Oh, and Zorn told fans to "stay calm, act medium."

The scrimmage is underway shortly after 2 p.m. and, SportsBog reports that as Campbell throws errant pass, fan yells "We want Vick."

Maese reports: Campbell leads first drive against 2nd-team D to 2-yd line, where settle for FG... Skins up 3-0... Also trailing 0-3.

After that, 2nd team O comes on, is led by Colt. Smoot and Mitchell just exchanged heated words.

Brennan fumbled and Campbell returned...and quickly threw an INT to Justin Tryon. But, as JReid put it: Uh-oh. Right tackle Jeremy Bridges hurt on the first play of the first-team offense's second series. He walked off the field without help.

Now Collins is getting a series after all...a very quick one. And now ... Chase Daniel.

JReid notes at 2:38: Really hard to evaluate the first-team offense with no Moss, Portis, the Thomas brothers (Randy and Devin) and Heyer. One QB threw an interception, the other fumbled. And there was nothing from Collins.

Daniel came in flingin', though. Maese says: Chase is first QB to air it out downfield... Interference on Tryon...

Here you go, Cultists:

@dcsportsbog Cult of Chase RT@jreidpost QB Chase Daniel just had a short TD run

@RickMaese RT @JReidPost: Quarterback Chase Daniel just had a short touchdown run to the right side. The fans cheered.

Let the Cult talk begin. Go ahead..Sure, it's not the Cult of Colt, it's the Cult of Chase...hmmm. Work on a name, willya?

Followed quickly by a TD pass from Campbell to Trent Shelton, who, in an upset, has not yet tweeted about it.

Maese offers a quick Bridges update: after leaving field on own, he's now seated on a water cooler. Prob encouraging that he didn't head to trainers' tent.

Maese further observes: Orakpo might look better if Devin Clark would stop holding him ... and ...Collins getting very little work: 20-yd TD pass to Yoder on first play.

Matt Terl at the Redskins' blog reports: Smoot just laid the lumber on Marko Mitchell, lost his helmet in the process.

After about an hour, the scrimmage ends. We'll have more updates for you soon.

I miss the annual scrimmage against Baltimore. I think the players get more pumped up playing against another team.

How is this scrimmage unlike any other practice?

A contest featuring no stars on offense versus some stars on defense gets a score of 2 and half stars.

Let's get to the third preseason game to get an early measure of the team's strengths and weaknesses.

What I want to see is Moss at Split end, Thomas at Flanker, and Kelly in the slot. Aldridge/Dorsey returning punts, Hackett #4 and Mitchell/Eloi/Hagens at #5.

What have you done for me lately Randle El??????? What have you EVER done for me Randle El?

beep beep Bridges update

The guys on the sideline today always seem to be on the sideline during these times, anyone find that odd?

We need some leather popping go getters, not pretty boy (I'm sore every other day) fruit boys. We won't see a champion skins team anytime soon with this crap going on. We need a coach that is going to hold players feet to the fire. Go hard or go home!
