This is a new blog segment at THn that I’m going to unimaginatively call ICYMI, which ICYMI, is an acronym for in case you missed it.
The idea being that we all lead busy lives and can’t possibly stay up on EVERYTHING going on in the Redskins Nation – not without a little help. Hopefully this blog will occasionally help you do that. It won’t concentrate on the big burgundy and gold news, but that doesn’t make it any less crucial to the avid B&G bleeder.

After eight long years, Ryan Clark has returned to the Washington Redskins on a one-year deal. While his play on the field should be a marked improvement, his leadership is invaluable, and the Redskins defense just got a whole lot smarter, and a lot more mature.
Most Redskin fans remember – with chagrin – that Clark went on to experience great success when he left Washington.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving last night. He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance.

By now you must have heard about the Twitter beef last night between the Redskins DeAngelo Hall and Richard Sherman. If you haven’t, I have done my best to cull the highlights – I may have missed a thing or two.
It was fun. It was very 2014. It was… epic… Read the rest of this entry »
