Looks Like Someone Has a Sixpack of the Mondays

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Roster battles and injury watches are the order of the day as the Redskins push through the heart of the preseason schedule.

We now have two preseason games to scour for news and thoughts and hopes and dreams and...you get it. We have monitored (and will continue to monitor) the Trent Williams fiasco (oh yeah, it is a full-blown fiasco) and we remain vigilant for any and all other areas of drama, but I thought today I would deliver a Sixpack of positives....

Who is Khairi Clark, the Defensive Lineman the Redskins signed this week?

The 90th man...

The Washington Redskins made another roster move this weekend, signing defensive lineman Khairi Clark and waiving defensive back DeJuan Neal. This appears to be primarily roster churn likely driven by mild, short-term injury to Caleb Brantley (foot) and knee soreness that limited Tim Settle’s snaps in the second pre-season game.

Clark is a UDFA, who was briefly with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason, after...

The Counter Trey: Zebras Overshadow An Exciting Affair In DC

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Redskins fans should be excited about 2019, just not the officiating

The Redskins wrapped up their second preseason game of 2019 and there was a lot to like. The additions of Ray Horton and Rob Ryan to the defensive staff have played a major role in the buzz around the defensive unit. Washington showed a relentless pursuit of the football, that should pay huge dividends this season.

Additionally, the growth and progression in Dwayne Haskins from week one to...

Let’s look at Harmon’s plays versus Cincinnati, and consider what the wide receiver unit is likely to look like for the Week 1 game in Philly.

The post-game press conference following the loss to the Bengals on Thursday night started predictably. A reporter asked Jay Gruden about two offensive pass interference penalties called on rookie 6th round draft pick, wide receiver, Kelvin Harmon.

Robert Davis making strong case for roster spot - Washington Times
Last year, it was Cam Sims who "threw a hand grenade" into the Redskins' competition at wide receiver. But in 2019, that role appears to belong to Robert Davis, a 2017 sixth-rounder who has been one of Washington's only offensive playmakers this preseason.

A look at the stats and snap counts for every defensive and special teams player on the Redskins in the team’s preseason matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals

Redskins Starter Snaps- All but one of the team’s starting defenders played on Thursday night (Shaun Dion Hamilton). The vast majority of the unit was on the field for 18 snaps and three drives.

The first stringers did not give up any points, only allowed 40 yards of offense and scored a touchdown on...

McCoy injury likely makes Keenum Skins' top QB

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Colt McCoy may not be ready to play until "two or three weeks into the season," as he recovers from a broken leg.

Case Keenum likely to open season as Washington starting QB

Everything is lining up to indicate that Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins when the regular season opens. Coach Jay Gruden admitted Sunday that Colt McCoy was no sure thing to be ready for the start of the season as he recovers from the broken leg he suffered in 2018. That, combined with the fact that the team does not appear ready to hand the reins to rookie Dwayne Haskins, indicates that Keenum will get the nod, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter....

Colt McCoy to miss regular-season time?

Signs are pointing toward Case Keenum piloting the Redskins’ offense when the season begins. With Dwayne Haskins still in developmental mode, Colt McCoy‘s injury setback will point Keenum toward taking a fourth team’s snaps in four years. Listed as the Redskins’ starter on their first depth chart this year, McCoy missed the team’s second preseason game and now is without a firm return timetable. Jay Gruden acknowledged (via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter, on Twitter) Sunday his...

How bad have the Redskins special teams been under new ST coordinator Nate Kaczor this preseason?

Pretty bad, actually

In 2018, the Redskins focus on special teams seemed to pay off, and the very good ST performance was part of the winning formula that saw the team win 6 of its first 9 games. At the end of the season, however, Ben Kotwica, the special teams coach, decided to leave Washington, going to work for the Atlanta Falcons. The move was apparently Kotwica’s decision.

His replacement is Nate Kaczor, who spent his previous three seasons coaching — where else? — in Tampa ...

Jay Gruden answers questions after today's practice

Jay Gruden talked to the media after today's practice. Colt McCoy's leg is still not right, and this could linger into the regular season. This puts the starting QB race between veteran Case Keenum and rookie Dwayne Haskins. The starters will likely play most of the first half next week against the Falcons. Gruden wants to have the starting QB locked down after this week's game.

Montae Nicholson - The 96-yard interception return for a touchdown was an impressive display of playmaking ability and speed, but more than that, it was the culmination of a strong offseason and training camp. For the Redskins to be a Top 10 defense, Nicholson needs to be the hard-hitting stud that Washington fans saw glimpses of as a rookie in...

When the Rosetta Stone - originally created in 196 BC - was re-discovered by French soldiers in 1799 it eventually led to a breakthrough in the understanding of the ancient Egyptian language and script.

How many draft picks will Ohio State produce in 2020?

Last Spring, Ohio State had nine players selected in the 2019 NFL Draft — just one player away from tying Alabama for the most. Of those nine, two were drafted by the Redskins — QB Dwayne Haskins and receiver Terry McLaurin.
