      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On his response to OL Trent Williams not wanting to play for the Washington Redskins:
      "I really don’t have one [a response]. I am just trying to focus on the guys who are here right now. I know Trent knows how much we need him and want him back. That is the only thing I can do from here. As far as what happened between him and the doctors, that is between him and the doctors and hopefully we get that cleared up soon."

      On if he has had any indication that Williams does not want to be on the team anymore:
      "I haven’t spoken to him in that context, no."

      On if he expects Williams to return:
      "I sure hope so, yeah."

      On when he was informed that Williams was not attending veteran minicamp:
      "Well – probably – a couple of days ago."

      On if that was the first time the issues were brought to his attention:
      "To that extent, yes, yes."

      On if he can share details on Williams' scalp:

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the absence of OL Trent Williams:
      "We have been talking to Trent a little bit here and there. He is not here [at practice], you are right. As far as holding out for whatever reasons, that is between Trent and Eric [Schaffer] and Bruce [Allen]. Hopefully, we’ll get it all situated soon and get him back here."

      On the disadvantages with Williams absent:
      "Well he is the best tackle in pro football, so. He’s a great player for us, a great leader. We would love to have him here without a doubt. I know his teammates support him and we support him without a doubt, but hopefully we get it situated where he comes back."

      On how QB Dwayne Haskins facing the defense with veterans participating:
      "He did [well]. He is learning every day. He’s doing an excellent job, as far as just getting familiar with the offense and terminology. He has a great skill set. He can really spin it, without a doubt, but now it is ...

      He was one of the most influential, winningest, and pivotal figures in Washington Redskins history. And most fans have never heard of him.

      He was the first head coach of the Washington Redskins – ever.
      He lead the Redskins to their first two championships – ever.
      He was an innovator and a football genius.
      And in 1976, he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

      He was Ray Flaherty.

      Flaherty was born in Washington State on September 1, 1903. He was a gifted athlete and played multiple sports at Gonzaga High School, and later at Washington State University and Gonzaga University.

      But Ray loved football most of all – and after college played in both the AFL and the NFL, both for the New York Yankees and the

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land and guests from social media – we hope you become a member here.

      Free Agency is not over and there are occasional rumblings here and there. This is our latest free agency update for the off-season and the 2019 season continues to inch closer.

      As free agency continues to a certain degree, things will become ...

      As BGO approaches it's first decade (!) of existence, thing are heating up.

      Confronted with an increasingly beleaguered and hostile fan base, the Redskins just threw a Hail Mary, selecting an uber-talented young QB in the 2019 NFL draft. The brain trust in Ashburn is being hailed for one of the best overall drafts in recent memory. The current coaching staff is reportedly coaching for their lives, decidedly on the hot seat.

      And BGO is at a turning point.

      Do you love this place?

      Do you pine for all things BGO?

      Do you agree not only that the Redskins future holds more promise than in years, but also that Om, Henry, Miles Monroe, Burgundy Burner, and Neophyte are dead sexy and amongst the smartest savviest Redskins prognosticators and assessors ...

      Pete Hailey over on NBC Sports Washington broke the numbers down for you.

      Here's what he said:

      "23 passers have gone in the top half of the first round of the past 10 NFL drafts, like Haskins did this past April. But when did those franchises first turn to their prized, young prospects?

      Here are the key takeaways from looking at that group's experiences and comparing when each got their chance to initially take over under center full-time (for ...
