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.

The #Redskins are 3-12 in their last 15 NFC East games and have lost six straight.— Jake Russell (@_JakeRussell) September 15, 2019
The #Redskins have only been 0-2 two other times since 2006. Here is how they finished the last five times they started 0-2.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 16, 2019
I know a lot of Redskins fans are pissed waking up Monday morning, but look at the Eagles...a team with Superbowl aspirations.— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) September 16, 2019
That "amazing" O-Line got Wentz sacked 3 times, gave up multiple pressures, and had just 49 yards rushing. Meanwhile Wentz threw 2 INT's in the loss
Sean McVay, Matt LeFleur, and Kyle Shanahan— all once on the same offensive coaching staff as assistants in Washington— are a combined 6-0 as head coaches through two weeks.— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) September 15, 2019

Postgame reaction for @1067theFan. In short - the #Redskins just aren’t as good as the teams they’ve played and they aren’t disciplined enough to make up the difference. https://t.co/hJYvXE0tUO— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 15, 2019
I'm a @Redskins season ticket holder. I called the ticket office twice this morning to let them know what my "game day experience" was like yesterday in the stadium. No calls back. Guess they're not really interested.— Tony Perkins (@TonyPerkinsFMTV) September 16, 2019
Did that #Cowboys 51-yard TD look familiar yesterday, #Redskins fans? That's because it was the same play the Skins ran for McLaurin's 69-yard TD vs the Eagles in week 1. Take a look. pic.twitter.com/85npyr3utr— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 17, 2019
This is some next level pettiness from Da’Ron Payne. But I am so here for it— Clint Lamb (@ClintRLamb) September 16, 2019

During the Fox broadcast, there was mention that Redskins coach Jay Gruden struggled with running back Adrian Peterson in this offense because he was a north-south runner. Gruden, though, on Monday said, "It's good to have a north-south runner. It's... https://t.co/saZltmY6wV— John Keim (@john_keim) September 16, 2019

Gruden complimented each individual on the offensive line then said they've got to get in unison.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 16, 2019
Gruden said the coaches are reaching the players just fine. "We've just got to play better." #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 16, 2019
Gruden says both QB Colt McCoy and DE Jonathan Allen may both work in individual drills this week.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) September 16, 2019
Injury notes:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 16, 2019
Colt McCoy could do some individual this week. TBD. Still some time before he gets into team.
Asked Jay about when Guice got hurt in the week 1 game. He said no idea, but he was clean going in. Happened during and when the adrenaline wore off he felt it.
On the struggle of the run game through two weeks, Gruden stressed the importance of interior push that ultimately opens up holes for RB's. Says Chicago "is no picnic" but the offense will look to get Adrian Peterson going to ultimately open up the offense.— Ryan Fowler (@FowlerRyan1) September 16, 2019
Jay Gruden not pleased with the pass rush. #redskins pic.twitter.com/kwALdjwWf8— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 16, 2019
Gruden time.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 16, 2019
Said CB Quinton Dunbar wasn't that close to playing Sunday and is actually a bit further out than Fabian Moreau, who was listed as "doubtful" for Week 2.
In regards to the O-line, Gruden said Morgan Moses is playing "decent football" thus far and that Brandon Scherff is playing "pretty well" aside from the holding penalty.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) September 16, 2019
Gruden said he thought Payne played well. Ioannidis was okay.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 16, 2019
Points to the ends and LB’s who were not always where they were supposed to be. Also says they were vanilla in the secondary due to the youth and moving parts.
A lot of national media types, as well as some local, absolutely killed the #Redskins for not making Kirk Cousins the highest paid QB in football at the time.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) September 16, 2019
And now... https://t.co/zcF5yrHRuw
Minkah Fitzpatrick trade likely to be wrapped up by tomorrow. The Dolphins expected to get 1st round value for him. Hearing WSH, DAL, KC, PIT, PHI and SEA all in the mix. Offers are being made— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) September 16, 2019
(RELATIVELY) BREAKING NEWS
Trading a first round pick right after finding out your franchise quarterback is done for the year is an... interesting decision https://t.co/Try9Tc4B49— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 17, 2019
Regarding the possibility of a linkage with the #Redskins, and building upon 2hwat @JPFinlayNBCS already said, it's worth noting that Jalen Ramsey has basically already listed teams he wants to go to, and players he wants to play with— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) September 16, 2019
Washington wasn't connected at all. https://t.co/jF05vwRjam
Somehow Patriots get Ramsey for a 1st that's conditional on Tom Brady retiring which will obviously never happen. https://t.co/aRdtgk4ccy— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 16, 2019
To everyone tweeting me “give them Trent Williams”...the #Redskins don’t want to trade Trent.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 16, 2019
I work within the parameters of being a reporter and presenting information unless otherwise noted. Obviously if Jax wants him, duh. But. It’s not like I haven’t thought of that.
As the weeks have gone by, I have become more emotionally detached from Trent the player. If he wanted to be back, he would by now. Time to deal him. https://t.co/seuO4SMTAT— manny benton (@manny_benton) September 16, 2019
He doesn't seem to be that worried about game checks and massive fines.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 16, 2019
Call me crazy, but #Redskins just might have mis-judged their own employees will.
Never has happened before...or maybe it has. https://t.co/9vBM7Y5zPI
#Redskins would benefit from adding either Ramsey or Fitzpatrick, especially with their current injuries. Not sure they have the ammo to do it though. No 2020 2nd as they gave that up for Sweat. Probably would require a Trent Williams trade to build up assets. https://t.co/s96RBcFFH1— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 16, 2019

What's remarkable is that three of the five worst DVOA ratings ever after Week 2 were teams that finished 8-8 or better! This graphic is the 11 worst 0-2 teams since 1986 not including the 2019 Dolphins yet. pic.twitter.com/T474yDvxaq— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) September 16, 2019
More bad injury news for the #Chargers: S Adrian Phillips, who hurt himself trying to tackle #Lions RB Kerryon Johnson Sunday, broke his arm, source said. He’s out for several weeks, but it may not be season-ending. He had been filling in for star Derwin James.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 16, 2019
#Saints QB Drew Brees, who visited a specialist following his team’s loss to the #Rams, is believed to have a ligament issue on his throwing thumb, per @TomPelissero and me. The team will know the full extent today, but he’s looking at missing some game time.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 16, 2019
A decision is expected today on whether Steelers’ QB Ben Roethlisberger will need elbow surgery, per league sources. Roethlisberger wants to avoid it all costs, but ultimately doctors will decide whether that’s possible.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 16, 2019
Cam Newton appears to be broken. Ben Roethlisberger couldn’t finish today’s game. Drew Brees is out now. Nick Foles is hurt and replaced by a man who looks like a pornographer. And Sam Darnold has mono.— Darin Gantt (@daringantt) September 15, 2019
It is no longer safe to be a quarterback, unless you’re Vampire Tom Brady.
NFL passer rating was 100.2 in week 1, but it's just 88.5 right now.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) September 16, 2019

Anthony Rendon's 34th home run of the season gets the Nats back even with the Cardinals. It seems like all of his bombs are significant.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 17, 2019
You know, he's the kind of guy a team might want to think about building around.
