Ben at The Curly R recently concluded his seven part series on one of the greatest games in Redskins history. He has a references page. We still doctor photos to make poop and pee jokes. Do yourself a favor and become a Curly R regular.
Best of luck to Redskins Post beat writer Howard Bryant who, per Redskins Insider, is headed to a "tremendous gig at ESPN" that could not have been turned down. Scary, and you'll be missed.
Running Redskins has been painted on the Mike Vick story. He's got everything; Mike Vick's attorney, the league's response, etc. I'm sure my colleague at The Falcoholic is trying to forget the entire affair, but is also doing a great job covering this story.
At the Fanhouse, Ryan Wilson gives us love along with Kedric Golston, who makes their NFL 30 Players To Watch. Also, Sportz Assassin continues lobbying for Jason Campbell's mustache, with some additional grooming advice. Just let your sooooooul gloooooo!
Riggo's Rag is looking at some of our rookies inspired by Gary Fitzgerald's "Camp Countdown: 5 Rookies to Watch" at the official site. Riggo also has been doing a bunch of division previews: Here's the NFC East.
Tandler ranks 24 starters on the Redskins, starting with 24-13. I disagree with Kedric Golston at #23, though look forward to 12-1.
The Official Site has five veterans to watch in camp: Brandon Lloyd, Rocky McIntosh (veteran=not rookie), Portis, Sean Taylor, and Todd Wade. Hopefully Lloyd, McIntosh, and Wade will all impress in camp, as our success is contingent in no small part on their development. Lloyd has to emerge as a legitimate #2 or at least #3 receiver, Todd Wade is replacing an outgoing veteran, ditto with Rocky McIntosh.
- Casey Bramlet winning the 3rd QB spot ahead of Todd Collins.
- Mike Espy as the #5 receiver, in virtue of no Keenan McCardell.
- No Dallas Sartz.
DC Sports Bog: Antwaan Randle-El wants a Super Bowl (surprise surprise) and Brandon Lloyd named his son Elvis. Bold move (and congratulations). Also at DC Sports Bog, who is prolific and funny enough to make me absolutely obsolete, Dan makes his own Best Sports Mustaches in DC History list and Art Monk wins 2nd, Joe Jacoby / Russ Grimm share 5th, and Diron Talbert gets honorable mention. We support all these great mustaches.
I'm done, and is it just me or has the Redskins Blogosphere gotten fierce? This will be a very entertaining season for reader(s), I imagine.
Should be a Training Camp Open Thread up later on today, as we start tomorrow. Football is so close I can taste it. I will also be incognito tomorrow, so make sure and carry the day in the diaries section or via comments. I need you guys to carry Hogs Haven throughout this weekend.
