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.

2) This is actually better for evaluation purposes.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2019
If Keenum and McCoy split the reps with the ones, they have to keep top guys in longer and they see less. Now can get a good look at Case and get their starters out. Could do the same in reverse next week with Colt playing.
Just wrote a full piece on McCoy sitting Thursday.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2019
It'll be up in the next half hour or so. It explains a lot more about where they are with McCoy and the ramifications for the other guys. Answers a lot of the questions I've been getting. Will post ASAP when it's up obviously.
1. #DwayneHaskins comes off smart, humble & self-aware every time he speaks. That guarantees nothing but is encouraging.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) August 6, 2019
2. QB1 battle already being viewed as two-man race between Colt & Case indicates that Dan/Bruce forcing Dwayne on Jay for Week 1 is not happening.#Redskins
Earlier in camp, McCoy said he was still dealing with some things from the injury. They all need reps, but if one QB were going to miss he'd be the one who could afford it the most. Keenum/Haskins need the time so coaches can gauge their status better.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 7, 2019
Craig Hoffman of 106.7 says that QB Colt McCoy is a lock for the 53-man roster. Out editor @AlanLepore has gone out on a limb and says it isnt a sure thing. Where do you think Colt will be come September 1? RT and comment. #Redskins #HTTR— Full Press Redskins (@FPC_Redskins) August 7, 2019
A little preview of the the PPR WR rankings that are coming out in a bit - my highest ranked rookie receiver for redraft leagues is Terry McLaurin. He's got a strong chance to be their WR1 by the end of September.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) August 6, 2019
60 rec, 800+ yards, and 6 TDs over 16 games are my expectations.
Harry hasn't even beaten out a UDFA on his own team for the job yet.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) August 7, 2019
Jay. Gruden. Loves. Terry. McLaurin. He's like Ryan Grant, only an actual starting-caliber NFL receiver. Might replace Doctson Week 1.— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) August 7, 2019

He’s a special competitor and has a special maturity for his age. We’ll see if he can turn that into being a special player (he has the speed) but comparing him to other rookies isn’t really fair. https://t.co/q0djsyhOzk— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2019

Holcomb has a chance to work into the rotation. I think he’s the Mike LB of the future here.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2019
I also happened to sit down with him for 15 mins yesterday in a really fun interview. Posting soon.
(And yes Harmon is way behind McLaurin. Terry is special.) https://t.co/Nn1NupGTys
"He told me I was going to be the football man of the house," Guice said. "He told me that when I was 5 years old, and then a few months later he got murdered. ... I wanted to honor football for him because that's what he told me I was going to do." https://t.co/PB3sraSLo1— John Keim (@john_keim) August 7, 2019
Ryan Kerrigan continues to be one of the most underrated players in the NFL. He bullies La'el Collins on this play for the sack.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) August 6, 2019
Since being drafted in 2011, he has 507 pressures. That is the 4th most among ALL defenders in the NFL. #HTTR pic.twitter.com/aITEQwT3dZ

More good news for the #49ers: CB Jason Verrett also has a minor ankle sprain, following his MRI, I’m told. A sigh of relief there.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 8, 2019
The 49ers injuries today are the reason why I have said they have too many “ifs” on the roster this year....If Jimmy, Kwon, Dee, Jerick, Verrett, Tevin, Bosa, etc stay healthy...it’s a lot and a long season— Mark Dominik (@MarkdominikNFL) August 7, 2019
The first episode of Hard Knocks was...boring.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) August 7, 2019
Again, they picked the wrong Gruden. Jay mic’d up for 2 minutes is better than that entire episode.

The 2019 Detroit Lions.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) August 7, 2019
1. Franchise QB✅
2. Solid offensive line✅
3. Uber-talented RB✅
4. Good WR duo✅
5. Incredible DL rotation✅
6. Talented young LB corps✅
7. Secondary that isn't totally hot garbage✅
That smells like a playoff run to me, boys.
Since apparently people find it inconceivable that a bad team can become good, I'd like to remind everyone that they were skeptical when I said the same thing literally only 1 year ago about Chicago.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) August 7, 2019
Saying that the Lions are bad "because they're the Lions" is a stupid argument. https://t.co/hJkgjSTXV1
For many NFL hopefuls and current players, the road will come to an end in the next month or so. More and more, those players are finding another chapter in the spotlight via the @WWE and @WWENXT. Here's how... https://t.co/E3hIeS7a9y— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) August 7, 2019
