    Training Camp (Defense)

    The temperature was 70 degrees and the weather was drizzly and the grounds were soaked but for an August day in the Summer in the DMV the alternative would be 90 degrees. I will take the rain and make the best of my time.

    The Defense for the Redskins will be a force in 2009 from the Defenive line which appears to be vastly improved with the additions of Haynseworth and the return of Phillip Daniels what was deemed a weakness last season will perform a complete 180 from last season. ...

  2. My take on anything and everything Burgundy and Gold
    while living in the heart of the wilderness. I am a fan, nothing more or less.

    Old Faces

    This time of year there are fans all over the world waiting anxiously for training camps to begin in 32 cities across our land. Most, if not all of that attention is focused on the new faces their team as brought in to turn around the failure of last year, failure that is unless you are a fan of the Sons of Pittsburgh.

    Some of those faces were stars on Saturdays last fall and are not just new to the team but new to the pro game itself. A few of those faces are old hands in the NFL ...

    The Agonizing Art of Alchemy

    This week, NFL training camps around America open, ushering in another year of glorious fan optimism and breathless promise.

    This will be the year *insert hapless mediocre franchise name here* proves everyone wrong and takes the NFL by storm. Miracles really are possible. The wisdom of all of those perplexing front office moves in the off-season will soon be revealed.

    For NFL fans, hope doesnt just spring eternal, it gushes forth like a Brooklyn fire hydrant opened ...

    'Twas The Night Before Training Camp

    'Twas the night before training camp, when all through the land,
    Not a player was clubbing, except maybe PacMan;

    The helmets were hung in the clubhouse with care,
    In hopes that the season soon would be there;

    The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of Lombardi danced in their heads;

    And coach and his flattop, all gelled up and damp,
    Had better hunker down for a long summer's camp;

    And out ...

    Wishing on a healthy Offensive Line!!!!!!

    The ties that bind are sooo easily broken!!! Last season our beloved Redskins jumped out the gate at 6-2 and the NFL was our oyster....we were on a roll, Campbell and Portis were in the discussion for NFL MVP. This new hippie style of Head Coach with the Z-Shades and QB dodging medicine ball tactics was a breath of fresh air. Could we make a run???? It looked possible by our start. Our defense was stout and we had what looked like the makings of a playoff contender. We know in the NFL one thing ...

    The Pressure Cooker

    It doesn't get any more intense. 2nd year NFL coach. Wildly unrealistic fan expectations. Historic winning tradition. Petulant Tom Cruise-loving egomaniac owner at the helm.

    Hello

    Jim Zorn - see ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.....

    2008 must have felt like a dream for Zorn. His head still swimming from a frantic and unexpected courtship culminating in his first head coaching gig, Zorns opportunistic Redskins floated ethereally and effortlessly to a 4-1, ...

    The Redskins Are A Drug, And I'm Not Ready To Quit

    Back in early February, I found myself sitting on a friend's couch, cold beer in one hand, small paper plate of chicken wings in the other. I was joined by about 10 or 12 other similarly armed friends, all of us circling around the giant big screen TV, staring with anxious anticipation as we awaited the kickoff to Super Bowl 43.

    As I watched what would be the last opening kickoff for the next 7 long months, a less-than-hardcore fan of the sport sitting next to me innocently asked ...

    Too Late

    It aint too late!

    It was a clear, bright Saturday morning, and like the wails of a religious zealot entreating the doomed masses the words rang out across the parking lot, somewhere between Academy Sports and Home Depot. I was on foot, waiting to cross an access road there in the lot, and I had to look around first to figure out who was being spoken to, and then to figure out who had done the speaking.

    Not the easiest task as Im not always the sharpest knife ...
