Roster Moves\Griffin Update

Alex Buzbee, a rookie DE from Georgetown, has been promoted to the active roster after spending all season on the practice squad. CB John Eubanks, who is suffering from an infected toe, is not listed on the roster. I imagine he may have been placed on IR but am awaiting final word.

Also, Rocky McIntosh placed on IR.

LB Danny Verdun-Wheeler, a rookie free agent in 2007 and DE Tommy Davis, another free agent from 2007, were added to the practice squad.

Also DT Cornelius Griffin, who had a minor hand injury and was left on the bench in the second half Sunday at New York, said he will be starting this weekend and is fully ready to go.

just looked at nateinthepdx's all-madden lists; i love how darrell green's first appearance is in 1986 and his last is 2000. 15 years of dominance. in this age of free agency, is it too much to ask to have just one stud player commit himself to one team like the old days? let's actually start living up to the term "redskin for life." i say we start with JC, Cooley, and LL.

Yeah, Eubanks. Lott up. Get that toe cut off and keep playing. ;^)

Seriously, though. An ingrown toenail? Painful, yes, but you cut and cauterize and it's better, right?

Django Reinhardt had only 4 fingers on his fret board hand. Top that.

And Minneopolis has suffered enough with the defection of the Lakers and then the North Stars. That North Stars thing was enough to make the most passive hockey fan sick.

Phil Keaggy is one of the world's best fingerstyle guitarists, despite missing half of his middle finger on his right hand.

But he's too old, too short, and (I imagine) too slow to effectively fill in at CB, unfortunately.

What you're smelling is oats.

Interesting that Buzbee got the roster spot. I remember all sorts of pre-season love for the local grad, but have a clear recollection of not being impressed. [I watched b/c periculum loved the guy so much.] Its an interesting time of year right now ... when they start to pick up guys for the practice squad from the undrafted rookiesphere. This is the time we got "Old Hurty Toe" Eubanks, Chris Wilson, and (I think) Torrence. I'm still wanting to see the return of Will Whitticker, who was our first post-Todd Wade left guard before he went down with a "high ankle sprain" (and got an injury settlement). How come no one gets a low ankle sprain? Is that what you get when you get what Shockey got?

(*serious and insightful analysis on*)

Picking up on the serious and insightful comment by dmacdc, the implication is that posting idiotic comments or comments off subject results in "wasting our time."

If this is true, dmacdc, there's one simple solution...send us a bill for the time wasted. Just go back to the archive and add it all up.

But what really concerns me is that dmacdc confirms what I've suspected all along. There is some kind of RI mind control thing happening here, because I am completely brainwashed into reading all the comments too.

sween, a low ankle sprain is more commonly known as a sprained ankle. A high ankle sprain is way worse because in addition to the longer recovery time, you have to spring for dime bags.

I gotta say, according to the tubes of the intergooglewebs, Verdun-Wheeler looks like a guy who had promising junior year, then tanked as a senior. Stuff about "willing, but not able" and "caught up in traffic" and "unable to take it to the next level" and "maps, such as" (OK, I did a side trip to the Miss USA Pageant). He was in camp with the Bears this past off-season. Presumably he's in for a tryout and a look see. His positives (moves great sideline to sideline) suggest he is in for an OLB spot (presumably weakside).

The bit about Antoine Winfield being out is large for the Skins, esp. b/c the Skins receivers are as healthy or healthier than they've been all season (I realize that's not saying much). But with Todd's quick timed release, and these guys running INSIDE, it could be a very lovely evening. Just thinking about how Santana caught that long toss in the Katrina-force winds in the Meadowlands convinces me the guy's brain has GPS.

The other lucky break is that Sidney Rice, their #2 pick last year, is out. He is their #2 receiver in yards and has been starting to get into a rhythm ... he leads the team with 4 receiving TDs. Given the comparative NON-health of the Skins secondary, this also helps us a bit.

Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus. Why, because, he is the reason that the Redskins may get into the playoffs. You see, on Weds. before last Thanksgiving, my wife, or as she should be called, Peter Pan, were in New York to visit our son and his wife. Well, how can you be in New York and not see the Macy's Santa Claus. So as we were talking with him and he announced that we qualified as good little boys and girls, not wanting to contradict the expert, we agreed and he asked what we wanted for Christmas. I told him, a winning season for the Redskins. Of course Santa doesn't give presents before Christmas, so he had the Skins lose their next game. However, he must of checked on my wife, I know I haven't beeen that good, and after that, the Skins started winning. So if anyone asks about the wonderful elf, I can safely say, yes there is a Santa Claus, because that is the only explanation for how Daniel Snyder's team is where it is.
