Same As It Ever Was........

  1. Players to Watch on Thursday

    Preseason is almost over and the final 53 man roster for the Redskins is almost set. But there are still questions about who should be on the roster and why. Today I'm going to look at how many open spots are left for players fighting to get on the final 53 and some players to watch who may be potential practice squad members.

    QB: 0-1 spots available
    Kevin Hogan
    Hogan went from a "camp arm" early in camp and the Patriots game to a interesting prospect as we ...
  2. Preseason Game #2 Who I'm Watching

    Originally, this was going to be a longer blog about some other player stuff that I haven't gotten around to giving my opinion, but now this will be about tonight's game since there's more players I plan on watching than I originally predicted.

    Here's the list.

    Now I know what you're thinking: "But Ghost, it's just a preseason game with mostly backups starting.....so who cares."

    Well, think about this for a moment. Only a few years ago, going back to Gruden year one or year two (2014-2015), most likely the Redskins 1st team unit would have been demolished ...
  4. The 53 Man Roster Prediction Thread 1.0

    You asked for it, so here it is. My 1st look at what could be the final 53 man roster. I hope to do at least two more of these as we get through the preseason games. The reason is simple: We have seen way too many players shine in camp or practice and yet fail to do so in REAL game situations. I think we will see some players emerge when the pads come on under the bright lights as well we may see a couple of players falter.

    So expect 2.0 to come out after week 2 of the preseason and ...
