      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On LB Ryan Anderson:
      “Ryan, we’re very excited about. He brings an attitude to this football team. Having a chance to talk to him in Tuscaloosa, I spent a lot of time with him watching him play. Talking to a couple of his teammates – obviously we drafted one yesterday – nothing but high praise for him, not only on the field, but his leadership and his tenacity to get after people to play hard, play physical, [and] bring a style of play here that we’ve been looking for.”

      On CB Fabian Moreau:
      “Fabian is an ultra-talented kid. He’s a three-year starter. He had the Lisfranc injury a couple of years ago [and] he started every game last year. Unfortunately, he hurt his pec [pectoral muscle] at his pro day lifting weights. But, he ran a 4.38 [and] 4.35 at the 40 [yard dash] at the Combine. [He’s] just really talented. He’s an ex-running back. What I saw at the East-West Shrine Game with him in one-on-ones, you could see his change of direction, his ball skills. But speed, I think upside, are the keys to Fabian and we’re excited to get him.”

      I know, I know. Life’s not fair. You never promised me a rose garden. Suck it up buttercup.

      If anyone gets it, it’s the son of the Great Santini. Raised by a 6’4” Marine Colonel, ‘I want…’ was a phrase I quickly learned to deftly avoid.

      But ‘want’ I do.

      And when it comes to my beloved Burgundy and Gold, the wish list is long and enduring.

      I want Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. Pay the man.
      I want Jay Gruden to become a better coach.
      I want the Redskins to commit to a ram-it-down-their-throats power running game.
      I want a football GM who spends more time watching film, and less time gladhanding fans in
      the Fed Ex Field parking lot.
      I want the trenches built, rebuilt, and rebuilt again.
      I want big uglies, and ...
