Starting at War Cry! responding to Dan Snyder. Regarding Snyder's expression of disappointment over last year's 5-11 record:
Redskins Insider was at the conference and just missed the opportunity to ask Dan: Why yesterday? He's reclusive for the rest of the year, why did Snyder choose a Draft Briefing of aaaaaall the Q&A sessions to speak out? On Dan Snyder on Brandon Lloyd:
Wow. So coming off that debacle of last season Lloyd spend a few weeks working out and he's getting platitudes from the guy who signs the checks.
Hog Heaven gets the award for the best structured post-briefing notes, far better than my cluster fudgesickled notes from yesterday. In case you missed Gibbs' reaction to the admission that Adams and Okoye and Johnson admitted to prior marijuana use (gasp):
Running Redskins has recap central as well as pining frustrated on Dan Snyder's GM take. Lots of very prescient and compelling points in his post, so make sure to catch all of it, but here's my favorite:
Both Snyder and Gibbs recounted that aggressive player acquisition has been a Redskins trademark since the 1980s. They might have pointed out that Bobby Beathard and Charlie Casserly, GMs both, were orchestrating those moves.
Melinda Waldrop's Redskins Huddle covers everything, though I give her the floor on Vinny's #6 strategy, which he made explicit at the briefing:
"When you're picking high like that, the biggest thing you don't want to do is draft for need and take somebody that's not worthy of that pick," Cerrato said. "What you want to get at the sixth pick is somebody that has Pro Bowl potential. ... If we're picking at sixth, we'll be looking for the best player available."
Snyder agreed, and said the Redskins have spared no expense trying to find that player.
Newspaper recap pending later today.
