Did anyone know about this?

" Although wide receiver Devin Thomas opened the preseason low on the depth chart, he made plays on offense after muffing the game's opening kickoff. Other teams inquired about trading for Thomas in the offseason, and it's not as if the Redskins are unaware of his potential." I never knew that teams inquired about trading for Thomas. It at least shows that other teams see talent and potential in him. Hopefully he'll step up and show his worth this year.

I was able to catch up with JaVale McGee after Team USA practice at the New York Knicks practice facility in Tarrytown, N.Y., on Friday afternoon and he confirmed that he discovered late last season that he has asthma. McGee said that it was comforting to discover that asthma had been holding him back for so long. Since he began treating the condition, McGee said he has more energy and can be more effective for longer stretches. He mentioned a home game against Charlotte last March, when he had 14 points and 12 rebounds in a career-high 46 minutes "and I didn't go to my knees once and it amazed myself."

Wizards Insider

Zorn hired by Ravens

+
"The former Redskins head coach, fired Jan. 4, has been hired as the Baltimore Ravens' quarterbacks coach. Attempts to contact Zorn on Saturday were unsuccessful. Zorn, who went 12-20 in two seasons leading Washington, beat out Al Saunders, a former Redskins offensive coordinator, for the position. Before joining the Redskins, Zorn was a respected quarterbacks coach with the Seattle Seahawks."

No More Lite Brites!

"This week, the Washington Redskins began mailing letters to their general admission and premium club seat ticket holders, informing them of significant changes to the in-game video experience, headlined by two 30 feet tall by 100 feet wide high-definition video boards, one in each end zone. There will be the HD boards in both end zones, replacing the comically small scoreboards, the old JumboTrons, and two end zone billboards. The big screens, which should be in place for the preseason, can be split into a variety of configurations; for example, displaying the same replay from different angles simultaneously, or showing replays and stats at the same time. There will be 10 other new screens in the lower bowl, from the game clocks to the time clocks to the out-of-town scoreboard displays, which will be equipped to also convey game stats and fantasy football totals."

1 Pro Bowl for Osackpo, 0 (still) for Fletcher

"Washington Redskins linebacker-defensive end Brian Orakpo, a dynamic rookie who is perhaps the most obvious core piece of the franchise's future, was named Tuesday night to the Pro Bowl, providing a small bit of solace for a team that has suffered through a disappointing season. The news, though, means two of the Redskins' best candidates - middle linebacker London Fletcher and defensive end Andre Carter - were not named to their first Pro Bowls."

Suisham signs with Cowboys

"Shaun Suisham, who was in Dallas for a tryout with the Cowboys today, will sign with the team, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, and his first game with his new team will be Sunday night against the Redskins at FedEx Field."

No More Snyder

2

For those that want to boycott Snyder and want him to sell the team, this is for you. Ron Mervis (owner of Mervis Diamond Importers) has a son (Jon Mervis) and he decided to create a website saying that he and his father would be willing to try and purchase the Skins if they got 10,000 people to sign up to their website. I could be wrong but I just don't see this happening. The only way anyone gets Snyder to sell the team is by money, and a lot of it. I don't know this for sure, but I don't think Ron nor Jon has 1.5 billion dollars (the value of the Redskins) laying around. However, for those that want to at least try you can sign up on the website and hope for the best.

If he can see it, why can't Zorn?

""You have a philosophy, a West Coast philosophy, and nobody fits that mold," said Hoge, who comprehensively reviewed the Tampa game on tape. "I don't think they try to take advantage of their strengths. It's like they've got a philosophy and they want to run it regardless. Shoot, I'd run the ball, run a lot of run action, stack receivers, bunch 'em coming off the line. I'd use a different philosophy to take advantage of their strengths. The West Coast is not their strength." "The great demise for any coach is when he's unwilling to adapt his philosophy to the strengths of his personnel," Hoge said. "I don't care what level you're at, eventually you have to evaluate the strength of your personnel and adjust your philosophy to those strengths." ESPN analyst Merril Hoge talks about the Skins, via DC Sports Bog. Can he become our head coach?

This can't be true

"The Redskins are expected to work out free-agent WR Freddie Brown on Tuesday, a league source told Scout.com. The former University of Utah product was selected in the seventh-round of the 2009 draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. Brown, who has good size, was waived by the Bengals on September 5." Are we seriously thinking about going for another WR??? We hardly even use the WRs we have right now, so why are we even thinking about picking up another? Why do the Redskins always feel they have to look outside of the organization and pick up a player, instead of using the players on the team? They're looking at him for the practice squad right? RIGHT?

Campbell's #1 in the league

4

Nothing ground breaking here. Pretty much sums up what we already knew about Campbell holding onto the ball for too long. I know it's only been two games, but I didn't know he was #1 in the league thus far. Worse than Roethlisberger? Wouldn't have guessed that one.

Haynesworth's difference on the field

19

" Like any other defensive lineman, Haynesworth gets breaks. In the opener, Haynesworth played 45 of the Redskins defense's 61 snaps (73.7 percent)." Haynesworth played more than I thought he did. I remember Jeff Fisher saying that Haynesworth played about 60% of their defensive snaps so obviously he was out there more for us, even though it was only one game. This pretty much sums up Haynesworth's effectiveness for us perfectly. BREAKING IT DOWN Run Location-----Att-----Yds-----Avg Away From Haynesworth-----10-----44-----4.4 At Haynesworth-----3-----(-2)-----(-0.7) Outside On Haynesworth's side-----8-----16-----2.0 Haynesworth On Bench-----7-----48-----6.86 I admit that I was expecting more push up the middle from Haynesworth, or even a sack here or there. However, you have to admit that no one is going to successfully run on us with Haynesworth in the game.

It's starting already!

Chris Samuels didn't participate in practice because of a "knee situation." It didn't take long for his knee to start acting up did it? Do you think we should hold him out the next few games to try and get his knee into proper shape since we're playing some pretty mediocre teams?

But how do you all feel about the defensive game plan? I know we did well against the run and only gave up 1TD and 3 FGs but is that enough? Is trying to stop the big play and stop the run enough...

Let's all give it to Wilbon

The Washington Post is having a weekly NFL picks type of thing. Most importantly you can go against Michael Wilbon and show him that you're more of a competent "expert" than he is. At least that's why I signed up. Oh and you also get prizes if your picks beat Wilbon's picks I think.

I forgot to mention that JaVale McGee stopped by to help Butler at his camp yesterday. I asked McGee what his goals are this offseason. "I'm working hard in the weight room trying to get bigger," he said. McGee told me that his goal is to add 15 pounds this summer. McGee played at 240 last season and said that he is already halfway to his goal.
