July 19th, 2011 at 11:55 AM
I have to say, I love twitter. There is a great Washington Redskins fan base and they continually drive me as a writer to the next level. This idea comes from another follower @skinrockflair. He suggested that I look into how the Redskins will transition from the lockout to the field....

July 11th, 2011 at 1:39 PM
I read an article today from Lavar Arrington of the Washington Post about a lack of parity in the league, following the lockout.

July 8th, 2011 at 12:40 PM
***PHOTO1*** When I say Mid-Level, I'm really speaking to the price. Not Revis or Asomugha money, because the skins really do have to many holes. I originally would have liked the Washington Redskins to sign Nnamdi Asomugha, but then Jason LaCanfora reports that it could take $19+ million per year to sign him. The Skins...

July 6th, 2011 at 11:54 AM
In recent weeks it seems as if Albert Haynesworth is becoming a player of value. The Washington Redskins did nothing to help "Heavy" Al's reputation. In fact, they could have smothered it completely.

May 30th, 2011 at 10:24 PM
Dan Snyder could finally be attempting to "bargain in good faith," with the media at least. The lockout is another issue, but the Redskins owner has a good feeling about that as well.
