      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."

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On missing walkthroughs during training camp:
      "Well, we’ve missed a couple of walkthroughs and one we had at the hotel, just short yardage goal line, which was OK. And then, yesterday's we got half of it in we missed the two-minute portion. So, we’re ok where we’re at. I’m going to extend practice today, I might add a walkthrough at the end to make up for what we missed out yesterday, so, we are on pace to get everything in."

      On CB John Norman’s performance during camp:
      "Josh Norman is having a fine camp, John, thank you for asking. He’s doing great. Yes. And, if he wasn’t doing great, do you think I’d say so? No, no, ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury update for WR Josh Doctson and T Morgan Moses:
      "[Josh Doctson] I have not and I expect him to do a little bit more than individual today. But we'll see how he’s doing. Morgan just turned and stepped on somebody's foot yesterday and he'll be fine. Probably individual, maybe a little bit of team, we'll see how he's feeling."

      On TE Jordan Reed practicing in full contact drills:
      "He did yesterday. No, he practiced yesterday. Jordan Reed? Yeah, he practiced. He was on goal line a little bit. He did. He practiced a lot. He's number 86 by the way (laughter)."

      On DL Matt Ioannidis' turf toe:
      "He's just getting treatment but he's a very ...

      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 ...
