      On safety Duke Ihenacho:
      "I think he brings some experience to the table. He started a lot of games last year for Denver. He's a tough guy and became available. We didnít know who was going to come available. We saw that he was there, we put a claim into him because of the experience level and special teams experience. We thought he could be an immediate help for us and luckily we got him."

      On if Ihenacho could start this week:
      "It depends on how quickly he picks it up mentally. I envision him participating in some level, some capacity, we'll see what that is. It's too early to tell. This is the first time we met him, today. So, we have got to get him acclimated to the defense, the calls, ...

      Pre-season means nothing as we all know.

      Sort of.

      However, (going for a tingle of anticipation here...didn't work? Ah, well.) I, being a stats guy of sorts, decided to check out some pre-season stats just for in-the ballpark or at least near-the-parking-lot type semi-vague ideas about how the Redskins looked compared to everybody else in a couple of areas.

      Yeah, I know it was pre-season and we were checking out new acquisitions and trying to do the who-stays/who-doesn't ...

      Well, at least one Tampa Bay Bucs fan board actually had a thread about Friday's pre-season tilt with the Skins.

      All the posts were made before the announcement of the Patriots trading Logan Mankins to the Bucs.

      On the field, the last chance for 22 (or fewer) current Bucs to remain Bucs for the regular season. Our D'line looks stout, but I remain somewhat concerned with the back end.Our Safeties and LBs IMO are crucial to

      Lets break down what ive seen of the NFC East when looking at preseason games, injuries, and their draft picks.

      New York (aka Smurfs)

      The first preseason game from the Giants with their new offense showed that their offensive line is still having trouble keeping Eli from being hit. This is good new for the pass rushers as Eli has had to throw some of them away and is picked off too often for them. Their run game has some wheels, but without that O-line, it wont take ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the plan for the starters on Thursday:
      "Yeah. It's my intent now for after a couple good days of practice to let the other guys play, let the backups play. So, we can solidify those roles, very important. I think we have our starters. In general, we feel pretty good about who they are and now we need to find the key backups and who they are and make sure they get the ample reps to make the football team and show what they can do on the field."

      On safety Phillip Thomas:
      "He's going to go to the same doctor that did his surgery and get it checked out from him and get another opinion from him and see whatís going on with it. He's got something down there. He ...
