      1.0 is here.

      Also for comparison, Rich Tandler's 2.0 Roster Thread. I'm linking Rich's thread here for a few reasons. First, it's near identical to my picks. Second, Rich posted his before I did mine. Yes, I did look at his out of curiosity and I also take his commentary along with Finlay and Tischler in consideration when I listen to their CSN podcast. That said, these opinions are my own and my explanations probably differ a bit to Rich's opinion. So, I wanted ...

      On RB Samaje Perine’s injury:
      "Samaje went in and got checked for twisted ankle, but looks like it’s OK. Everything else was negative. Twisted ankle for Samaje."

      On WR Cam Sims’ performance:
      "Yeah exactly, I mean it’s not always going to be perfect in pro football. Sometimes you’re going to have some things happen to you that you didn’t expect but he bounced back and made some big plays. Even the touchdown that was called back was an unbelievable catch. So, I was glad to see him show up. He didn’t hang his head, he just came back and kept fighting. What a great sign for a pro athlete because that will happen from time to time with a key drop."

      On what ...

      On getting hit on the first drive:
      “To be honest, you know, it’s almost a blessing to go out there. You haven’t played in a long time; you haven’t taken a hit. We’ve been wearing, you know, yellow jerseys all off-season and to kind of get that first shot, get the completion, it was nice. A nice way to start it off kind of get the cob webs out, get you back into football mode right away. You know, I thought we did a nice job, got into some rhythm, which was nice, moved the chains. Of course, they couldn’t finish it off on third-and-nine. But yeah, it was good to get a little rhythm going, good to get into the huddle with the guys and get out of the field again.”

      On changes coming into Washington:
      “Yeah, I mean, for me, it’s way too soon to evaluate right. I mean we’re full steam ahead. We’ve got a lot ahead of us. Everything said on opening day like everybody around the league right now, so we’ve ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On what went into the decision to release CB Orlando Scandrick:
      "A couple things really, you know when we initially signed Orlando we had just lost Kendall [Fuller], and it was before the draft. We drafted [Greg] Stroman and obviously we got Adonis [Alexander], and I think the emergence of Danny Johnson, Fabian Moreau at nickel. We wanted to get these guys reps at nickel and [Quinton] Dunbar at corner and move on. So, give Orlando ample time to get on a team before the season started."

      On if he is confident in the depth at cornerback for the start of the season:
      "I do. I’m very impressed with them all. You know, obviously Adonis [Alexander] not as much because he just got here and he’s been hurt but he’s ...

      I finished the Redskins @ Patriots game with a generally good feeling.
      The Redskins dominated the 1st half of the game and led 17-3 to the AFC Champion Patriots.

      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 ...

      LB Ryan Kerrigan

      On changing the amount of preseason games and practices during training camp:
      "I mean, I definitely feel like, you know for a lot of guys, when you're talking about the first and second units, you get a lot out of joint practices. I mean we've had the [New England] Patriots here before, we've had the [Houston] Texans, and I felt like we got a ton of good work done in those in those practices. Whereas in the game, if it's the first or second preseason game and you’re first string might be going you know maybe five to ten plays, so it’s like you gotta balance that out to which do you think is ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On reaction to RB Derrius Guice's injury:
      "Well we are obviously very upset for Derrius. You know, he’s put a lot of work in and had a very promising rookie season ahead of him, but unfortunately these injuries happen. He’s a great kid, he’s going to work hard, he’ll recover and - so there’s no problem there. You know, we are disappointed for Derrius. You know we had high hopes for him and what he could do for this football team and what he would accomplish in his rookie year as a person and all that good stuff. But I know that knowing him and knowing the doctors we have and the rehab that we are going to give him, provide for him, he will be 100 percent in no time."

      On replacing Guice on the roster:
      "Woah okay, he was sixth string on the [unofficial] depth chart, you know ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On how long he will play starters in the first preseason game versus the New England Patriots:
      "Yeah, we’ll decide on game day. I want to get a good practice out here today and we’ll make a decision here. I kind of got it in my mind what I’m going to do, but I don’t want to have it etched in stone and then change my mind last minute. But, we’ll see how it goes."

      On if he shares how long the starters will play with the team:
      "It doesn’t really matter. Yeah, it doesn’t matter. I think I want to get a good practice in. The big thing is to get out of this game Thursday night against the Patriots is to get a good look at some of our ...

      WR Paul Richardson, Jr.

      On if he is looking forward to putting on Washington Redskins jersey on for the first time:
      “Oh yeah, I’m looking forward to it. I kind of feel like a rookie all over again. You know my rookie year, I couldn’t wait for the first preseason game. I didn’t know that---I was like you guys play in your real uniforms in the preseason? So, you know, it’s kind of like that moment again, so I’m looking forward to it.”

      On if he feels similar pressure to a rookie heading into first game with the Washington Redskins:
      "I don’t feel any pressure. I know I’ve talked to a few of the young guys about just ...

      LB Mason Foster

      On training camp:
      "It’s going good, you know, we got a lot of great players, had a lot of new additions that are helping out, so it’s going well, man. I’m excited, we got young guys working well in the building, asking questions so I’m excited man, I’m excited to see what they do on Thursday."

      On his status as a veteran with the Washington Redskins:
      "Yeah man it’s great, it’s great for me you know what I mean, I love it here, the fans are great so just try to keep on building day after day. Keep getting better and do whatever I can to help this team win."

      On the anticipation of the preseason ...
