The Daily Twitter will be posted at the beginning of every day (at midnight in Washington, DC). The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general.

Dear Dan Snyder,— Paul Conner (@P_ConnerJr) January 7, 2019
Two NFC East teams are in the second round of the playoffs. Neither are the #Redskins.
Do something about it.
Amazing how quickly the Eagles have been able to move past the Chip Kelly era (which includes two of three winning seasons). A decade later and Skins fans are still having nightmares about the Zorn era— T M (@reshmanuel) January 7, 2019
Week 10 NFC East standings:— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 7, 2019
Cowboys and Eagles will both play in NFL Divisional playoff round.
Redskins have no idea what 2019 holds.
Looking at some of the lower-level playoff teams: Do you believe there is there any way the #Redskins can make the modest leap from 7-9 with massive injuries to, say, 9-7 and a wild card spot in 2019.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) January 6, 2019
While we wait during this endless timeout/review - really, really love M&T Bank Stadium. #Redskins need to get their stadium issue right. By far the most important thing facing the franchise. Sets them up for next 40 years. In grand scheme - next few seasons pale in comparison.— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) January 6, 2019
A double doink? Luckiest win for Eagles.— Rick Snider (@TourGuideDC) January 7, 2019
It literally hit the goalpost AND the crossbar. You can’t make this up. Wow.— Master (@MasterTes) January 7, 2019
Wow the eagles just don’t deserve that win— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) January 7, 2019
Man. Brutal.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 7, 2019
It wasn't a bad trade. Low risk, high upside. But it didn't work out for either party. And it may have stunted the younger safeties' development.— michael phillips (@michaelpRTD) January 7, 2019
Then the Cooper trade, which looked desperate, has the big payoff.
The men who get the chance to suit up and play in the playoffs man I got a ton of respect for y’all.— Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (@haha_cd6) January 6, 2019
Some more details on #Cowboys WR Allen Hurns: He tells me the bone actually broke through the skin. Pain was less of an issue because “more so freaked me out because of how it looked”. The surgery took an hour and 45 minutes and can’t put any pressure on the leg for two months— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) January 7, 2019
Truly appreciate all the prayers. If you know me you know I don’t lack having faith. I trust and thank the man above through the ups and downs . Ready to attack this recovery process, Better believe I will come back on a mission.— Allen Hurns (@A1hurns) January 7, 2019
How in the world is it 2019 and football writers still don't understand the correlation between rushing attempts and winning?— JJ Zachariason (@LateRoundQB) January 7, 2019
Remember when many scoffed at Nick Foles when he replaced Carson Wentz last year? Gave him and the #Eagles no chance. A #SuperBowl championship and another playoff win on the road later and what is everyone saying now?— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) January 7, 2019
Philly can say they’re going back to Wentz all they want.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 7, 2019
Nick Foles’ stock— Master (@MasterTes) January 7, 2019
Foles is like the Highlander... you just can’t kill him— trey wingo (@wingoz) January 6, 2019
Also a note: the 2018 season was the best offensive season ever, but not the best scoring season ever.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) January 7, 2019
One reason: the NFL moving the extra point back https://t.co/aucizp2dhp
Tough match-up for the Chargers next week at New England since they'll have the least experienced quarterback.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) January 6, 2019
DIVISION ROUND— RJ Bell (@RJinVegas) January 7, 2019
Chiefs -5.5 hosting Colts
Rams -7 hosting Cowboys
Patriots -4.5 hosting Chargers
Saints -8.5 hosting Eagles
I believe it was Bill Cowher on the CBS pregame who said "your strengths get you into the playoffs and your weaknesses get you out". Never heard it before but man it's so true. Ravens offense, Bears kicking game + offense and Seahawks conservative play calling.— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) January 7, 2019
Cody Parkey's missed go-ahead field goal hit off the left upright.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 7, 2019
It's the 6th time this season he's hit an upright/crossbar on a missed field goal or extra point, double that of any other kicker. pic.twitter.com/nhbhhjsdQ9
Cody Parkey's entire $3.5M 2019 salary is already fully guaranteed.— Joel Corry (@corryjoel) January 7, 2019
I would have to ask kickers, but I kinda hate that Parkey kicked that first one. Get your mind right. Kick it once. Never kick it twice.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 7, 2019
Said it before the timeout, too. Was hoping he would just swing through or not do anything. Made the one that didn’t count, then doink.
I’ve had a lot of tee shots that looked like that field goal. That is, if u picture the upright as a tree.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 7, 2019
Looks like the Eagles tipped the field goal https://t.co/OKCqZzF37s— The MMQB (@theMMQB) January 7, 2019
Eagles DT Treyvon Hester actually tipped the field goal that Cody Parkey missed https://t.co/HM2JFRBxcm— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) January 7, 2019
Wow not picked up at all on the broadcast. https://t.co/xUums19JWM— Steve Shoup (@Steveospeak) January 7, 2019
I guess it’s too late for all the people who jumped in Parkey’s mentions to apologize for the hate.. https://t.co/wbnCWqiMMq— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) January 7, 2019
I know the ending sucks for @ChicagoBears fans but a huge takeaway from tonight should be your QB @Mtrubisky10 didn’t shrink to the moment, but rather rose up, and flat out BALLED IN THE 4th QTR, played his best ball when it mattered & made some big boy throws!— Dan Orlovsky (@danorlovsky7) January 7, 2019
Props to Cody Parkey for not making excuses during the hardest moment of his professional life. Can’t be easy being a kicker. https://t.co/IgTB5Fb6Dq— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) January 7, 2019
Eagles are the first NFC East team to win at least one playoff game in back-to-back seasons since … the 2004 Eagles.— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) January 7, 2019
Nigel Bradham called it, Golden Tate prayed and Jason Kelce said a premature farewell to a friend.— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroNBCS) January 7, 2019
The #Eagles are still alive because of a missed FG. Here’s how things went down on their sideline in the waning moments of Sunday’s game/https://t.co/bvuJr1mKVO
Nick Foles' weird, wonderful run with the #Eagles theoretically can end any week now. He knows that.— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) January 7, 2019
But he's trying to soak it all up while delivering clutch performances on massive stages.
My dispatch from Soldier Field:https://t.co/gowQCDGpyn
Joe Flacco on if he could've made a different in the game: "No, no, you can't even go there, man. I thought Lamar did a great job of just hanging in there. You know, he gave us a chance at the end."— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) January 6, 2019
We’re actually at a point where it’s easy to justify going to Flacco.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 6, 2019
“We needed to go pass heavy and Lamar is most effective when we can leverage his running ability. We thought Joe gave us a better chance to come back.”
Not hard and it doesn’t mean you’re giving up on LJ.
#Ravens CB Jimmy Smith was pissed at #Ravens fans for chanting for Joe Flacco when Lamar Jackson needed their support and said so. But he also ended with this: "But JUST to be clear...our fans are great. It was a small group. I mean I still gotta walk outside to get to my car."— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) January 6, 2019
Lamar Jackson on fans booing: "We still love the fans. No hard feelings. They were looking for better in us. We didn't perform well. It happens sometimes."— Jamison Hensley (@jamisonhensley) January 6, 2019
"I was considered elite, at least by some people. Pretty sure I could help now, maybe.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) January 6, 2019
"I was all in for Week 1 and I'm all in for entering this game."
Shoulda let Flacco kick it.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) January 6, 2019
No. I think it’s amazing people are calling for him to be benched.. That’s all.. You make it to the playoff largely because of his impact on the offense but he’s supposed to take a seat at the first sign of trouble? Have we had that discussion with anyone else? https://t.co/xDJ5GV4DPD— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) January 6, 2019
I texted a Ravens fan friend and gave them two choices:— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) January 6, 2019
1) Lamar stays in the game and the Ravens lose
2) Flacco comes in and wins the game, but the Ravens lose in the next round and it convinces Baltimore to keep Flacco next year
Their response is not printable
Harbaugh said he thought about and talked about putting Flacco in the game. Declined to discuss determining factor in staying with Jackson but felt Jackson’s 4th quarter validated decision.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 6, 2019
Harbaugh said there is no question about his future. “I have every plan to be here if they want me here and I believe they do.” Said decision makers have told him they want him back.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 6, 2019
Call it the Sean McVay effect: There are defensive coaches who believe teams with HC vacancies are more inclined to interview young, offensive-minded coaches. One D coach joked that a quality control coach for McVay has a better chance at an HC job than any high-profile D coach.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 6, 2019
Dearest mother —— Capt. Andrew Luck (@CaptAndrewLuck) January 6, 2019
My time away from home shall be extended. The unit was victorious over the Texan men. Stupendous! It was a hard fought battle, but our lines held strong. I am so thrilled, my pen trembles as I write. My sidearm and resolve are true. I love you.
Dearest mother —— Capt. Andrew Luck (@CaptAndrewLuck) January 6, 2019
Our victory frolicking has ceased. We must now begin our march to Kansas City to battle a unit of such great stature, every member has been granted the title of Chief. Our path has been long and winding, but I have never seen the men’s spirits higher.

The Cowboys get a measure of postseason catch-rule justice, from the Dez Bryant non-catch under the old catch rule to the Amari Cooper catch under the new catch rule.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 6, 2019

While you peruse these NFL playoff games - a reminder that #Caps are back in action at 5pm tonight at Detroit. Need to get back on track after a 0-2-1 stretch. @JJReganNBCS sets the stage. https://t.co/ZUcObuU3EI— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) January 6, 2019

I have begun to watch the critically acclaimed HBO television program “Game Of Thrones” for the first time in my life. (No, I am not a cop).
One episode has already contained multiple beheadings and twin sex. I shall continue this journey with trepidation.
