The Things You Do For The Ones You Love...

As much as I want to post pictures and tell you a pretty interesting story, I am holding back...and for good reason.  I will say this...obviously, I am passionate about my football team.  Sometimes, you do silly things for the things you are passionate about.  Recently, I did one of those silly things...of course, then that "silly" thing went really wrong, due to what was probably predictable deceit....I just had no idea how far some people would go.  Regardless of how it turned out, I should have known better.
Who knows...maybe after I can reach the knife in my back, pull that out and heal up a bit, I will share my story in its entirety.


Hail to the Redskins!

The 53 Right Guys

The end of preseason always are tough times, as fans and players, as the cut to 53 players looms.  

I try to look at it this way...

A great dish was created with a great recipe.  Someone took time to combine the right elements and ingredients, used whatever assembly and cooking methods or techniques, to create something incredible.  Some of those ingredients, alone, may not be so appetizing, but combined as a team with the other elements and they become invaluable. 

Training camp, cuts....they are part of the recipe.

Bring on regular season.

Roster Cuts - Round 1 - Down to 75

The first round of cuts came and went without too many surprises for Redskins fans.  Notable cuts included Rob Jackson, Mike McGlynn, and Rashad Ross among a host of other more predictable cuts.

Rob Jackson still showed abilities in pass-rushing skills, but was likely muscled out by rookie Trent Murphy and the Jackson not contributing on Special Teams.

Rashad Ross shined in practice and had flashes in pre-season.  He is likely to be offered a spot on our practice squad.

Find the official list of cuts here:

Expect more cuts Friday and Saturday, as the team trims down to the final 53.
