    So, if you don't feel like reading a long article on the draft, here's a quick summary via anecdote: I had to call my former employers the other day for some information and wound up talking to a former co-worker who follows the 'Skins. He asked me what I thought of the draft (back then I was...

    The True Value of Su'a Cravens

    So, want to know how much Su'a Cravens is really worth to his new team in terms of value? Oh sure, we know what the trade was that went down. Washington gets: Denver's 4th (109), 5th (142) and 5th (163) and a conditional 2020 6th rd. pick (???) Denver gets: Washington's 4th (113), 5th (149)...

    IIWII: Draft Trade Scenario Few Are Thinking About

    Since we've been discussing about whether Clausen should be the pick at four. I thought of a way to get a good staring left tackle to protect him and Campbell with the #37 pick: http://walkingdeadmanblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/draft-trade-scenario-few-are-thinking.html The Ravens have Gaither...

    Per PFT Artis Hicks a Redskin, Tony Pashos not so much

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/ Sounds like we have a new RG. Nobody else so far has reported the story.....looking for confirmation. Update 1: Burgundy Burner reporting that both Hicks and Pashos are signed. Update 2: Rick Maese, of The Washington Post, reports...

    Bruce Allen Press Conference

    Anybody else catch this? I'm expecting the Skins to be spending a lot of money at 12:01 based on the comments of Bruce Allen. Also, it's nice to have an actual GM now and not a bumbling stooge that Vinny portrayed during his pressers. And the last question by Jason Reid about rebuilding the...

    I'm Really Liking Tony Pike as a 2nd Round Pick Option

    I'm watching the bowl games looking at some players that might be worth keeping an eye on and even in the huge loss to Florida, I'm really liking Cincy's Tony Pike as a possible 2nd rounder option for the Skins. Decent size. Quick release good arm (seems like he can make the NFL passes). Decent...

    So much for the Good Will towards Zorn and others

    I seriously doubt that anybody will suggest Zorn remaining with the Skins after this loss to the Giants. One has to wonder what the feeling towards other guys like Campbell and Ganther will be as well. Your thoughts? Mine. Bruce Allen has a great deal of work ahead of him if this is the...
