The Skins dominated possession. It was a good win, one that, in prior seasons, would have been a loss… but, there was good and bad to be gleaned from yesterday’s victory over the Cards. Read the rest of this entry »
For those who read my last blog about Grossman (Redskins Start With Grossman) you’ll note I kind of predicted this last weekend’s performance.
For the game, Grossman was 21 of 34 (62% completion) for 305 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions (though one was close) and one fumble. While Antrel Rolle may whine about how the Giants would beat the Redskins “95 out of 100 times” Rolle has failed to recognize that we didn’t beat New York because our offense was better; we beat them because our defense was.

The Redskins made their biggest move of the day early Thursday morning by shipping disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2013 5th round draft pick. This ends a dark chapter because Haynesworth is widely viewed as arguably the biggest free agent bust in franchise history, which should say something. Ironically, Haynesworth heads to another team with a 3-4 defense and a coach regarded as even stricter than Mike Shanahan in Bill Belichick.

In this week’s edition of Leftovers, Andre Carter talks about how the defense can judge Matthew Stafford after only playing in part of one game this year, how the defense rewarded D-Hall for his 4-INT performance and if he thinks running back Clinton Portis should regain his starting position when he becomes healthy.

This is a new blog I’ll plan to do at least weekly starting with training camp. For now, at least, it will just be something along the lines of a Redskins notebook. I’ll be going to the internet trough and posting some of the slop that I come across that seems relevant. Feel free to comment to let me know if I’ve missed something or you have ideas for improvement.
For now, let’s get started with LaRon Landry, Jason Campbell, two signings and James Thrash:

For those that would like to read more about Reed Doughty, I added a few questions and quotes from my interview with him that weren’t included in the article. I also added links to article what Reed has been up to lately.
THN: How has he (Albert Haynesworth) fit in with the team so far?
Reed: To be honest I haven’t talked to him on a personal level. We exchanged pleasantries and he is always around and working hard so it is great to see that.
THN: How does it feel to be back?
Reed: Feels like home. [I'm] excited to be back with the team.
THN: How would you grade the team’s off-season so far?
Reed: Very solid. We signed marquee players like Haynesworth and D-Hall but we also brought back some guys that can be role players and really help this team win a championship.
THN: What is your opinion in regards to the rules changes that were just made that deal with player safety?
Reed: As a defensive player it is really hard. I understand player safety but we are just out their doing our jobs and not trying to let the offense score. You can’t think about getting off the ground before sacking the QB or not using your forearm against a players head. It happens so fast. I think as long as you don’t spear somenone or go crown of helmet to helmet you are not being dirty. We don’t intentionally hurt anyone so it is difficult getting fined for things we feel we are paid to do. You can’t be “careful” or you’ll be out of a job.
Doughty, while battling a hearing deficiancy, also graced the cover of Hearing Loss Magazine last year.
