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, along with a smattering of other things.

Are there really people who bet on preseason games?— Martin Collinson (@redskinsfanuk) August 20, 2019
If so how do we get them help?
From @NFLTotalAccess: The expectation is that the #Redskins start veteran QB Case Keenum to open the season, as Colt McCoy heals and rookie Dwayne Haskins learns. A look at where their QBs stand pic.twitter.com/WlOQg7rkpE— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 20, 2019
I don't see the value of tying up a roster spot for a 3rd QB in most years, let alone for a QB who can't stay healthy. I get the 'experience' argument, but we have Alex Smith to help coach up both Keenum & Haskins if need be. The need for depth elsewhere is more pressing imho. https://t.co/lue7Y5HomJ— BGObsession.com (@BGObsession) August 20, 2019
He's watched every snap the kids taken so far :) The goal is always to win as many games as possible - what other goal should there ever be? If he goes with Keenum, it's because he's decided he's best equipped to help them win games right now. That's not a controversial decision. https://t.co/M8UjFg9amR— BGObsession.com (@BGObsession) August 20, 2019
Am i the only Redskins fan who fully expected Case to start the season, & who is also completely unconcerned about that development?— Nothing McBlankerton (@HardcoreHaney) August 20, 2019
Not ecstatic, mind you...not optimistic...just unconcerned.

Well.. I tweeted video of them before that tweet on Moreau...— John Keim (@john_keim) August 20, 2019
Gruden says he’s pretty confident Guice has a chance to go tomorrow. Wants him to get a couple preseason carries before Philly. Would like to get that tomorrow. #redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) August 20, 2019
Jerry Jones when asked today about the backlash over his “Zeke who?” joking comment: “I’ve earned the right, with Zeke, to joke. Period. I’ve earned that. Let me be real clear about it, I’ve earned that right to joke.”— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) August 20, 2019

From @NFLTotalAccess: Odell Beckham’s claim the #Giants turned down better offers than the #Browns’ doesn’t hold water. At least not in reference to this year’s round of trade talks. pic.twitter.com/ixapKdTpMT— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 20, 2019
Soccer star Carli Lloyd drilled a 55-yard FG at Eagles’ practice today. https://t.co/2l5jaVON9F— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 21, 2019
Serious question: If great kickers make $4 million or $5 million per, and Lloyd can do this without much training ... Why wouldn't a women's soccer player make a run at a job at some point? It's way more than they can make in their own sport, right?— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 21, 2019
Maybe I'm missing something. https://t.co/4gMjULLf1J

So the first lucrative deal that Dallas gives out this summer is not to Ezekiel Elliott nor Dak Prescott nor Amari Cooper, but LB Jaylon Smith.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 20, 2019
One thing that is well-known in the building in Dallas: With post-career business aspirations in mind, Jaylon Smith puts great value in being a Cowboy. He wanted to be there. So he and the team found middle ground, struck a deal.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 20, 2019
Jerry Jones cites Jaylon Smith's team-friendly deal as Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper seek long-term deals: Team takes precedent, and I've got backbone to keep it that way https://t.co/37PBX50YMj— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 20, 2019
Now that Jaylon Smith got paid had to ask “Now that Jaylon's got a slice of the pie, does it affect how big of a pie Amari, Dak, and Zeke can get?”— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) August 20, 2019
JERRY: There's less pie left, make no bones about it.
SLATER: That's what I wanted to clarify.

#Raiders WR Antonio Brown wore a Schutt Vengeance Z10 LTD helmet today in practice, per source. It is among the 34 helmets approved for use after the NFL-NFLPA laboratory tests were conducted early this year and sent to players in April. It’s in the green grouping of helmets.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 20, 2019
Raiders coach Jon Gruden was asked if Antonio Brown showing means he's all-in, smiled and responded, "Is that some sort of joke? Yeah, he's in, all-in, that's what he said."— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 20, 2019
On the kind of helmet Brown's wearing, Gruden said, "It's a certified helmet. He's all-in, ready to go."
And lo it came to pass, after months of anger and hurt feelings and nearly 2 weeks of public recriminations, ultimatums and legal actions, our protagonist tried a slightly different product from the same manufacturer and said "This is OK I guess." The end.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) August 20, 2019
Baker Mayfield to @GQMagazine: “I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones. Blows my mind…Some people overthink it [what makes a good quarterback]. That’s where they go wrong. They forget you’ve gotta win.”— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) August 20, 2019
Full story: https://t.co/4cVBnvft1c
Mayfield might be right in the end but he's gotta shut up. You don't want your franchise QB constantly being in the headlines for the crap he says, even if he backs it up on the field. And he's only done it for 14 games. Let's slow down, please. #Browns https://t.co/wekBPooIUa— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) August 20, 2019
* Didnt call Jones a loser once— Evan Silva (@evansilva) August 20, 2019
* Stated an opinion that was rooted in fact (Jones went 17-19 at Duke)
* Was commenting on a SportCenter segment
* Was making a general point about what he feels is important in QB evals and not “trashing” Jones at allhttps://t.co/lN9EuQIW50

Hey dipshit, the writer of the article himself came out today and said this was blown way out of proportion and Baker's comments were totally misunderstood. THE WRITER DEFENDED BAKER AND SAID BAKER WAS NOT TAKING A SHOT AT JONES OR THE GIANTS.
On behalf of the entire media, I wish to again apologize for directly quoting someone who knew they were being interviewed. We are, and continue to be, history's greatest monsters.— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) August 20, 2019
Every day, every quote, every pre-season prediction and cover story of the #Browns being "America's Team" makes me think more and more that they won't win more than 8 games & could be a dumpster fire of in-fighting. America & the media ALWAYS gets the hype machine wrong.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) August 20, 2019
