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.

#Redskins Film: DE Sweat at times looked totally overmatched by LT Tyron Smith. Sweat needs to develop some pass rush moves and a personal gameplan, he had this issue last week vs. Jason Peters.— Andy Benoit (@Andy_Benoit) September 19, 2019
We all know that Montez Sweat has struggled as a pass rusher, but he's been solid in the run game.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) September 19, 2019
He has the most defensive stops among all rookie edge defenders through the first two weeks, per @PFF.
A couple of plays stood out to me including this one against Tyron Smith. pic.twitter.com/xxX20nyiuV
There's a couple of teams trying this inverted Tampa-2 coverage right now, where the outside corners take the place of the deep safeties with deep half responsibilities. It's not working for the #Redskins through two games so far though... pic.twitter.com/eDnMiaPfOX— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 19, 2019
Yep. I know they love to have interchangeable safeties because of the disguise it offers, but Collins is significantly better against the run and that extra defender in the box is critical.— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) September 19, 2019
Talked to Steven Sims about the Jet sweep and then this inside handoff after the Jet. On that play he said he needs to tighten his split. He’s supposed to be closer to his blockers. “Next time we’ll get it together,” he said. pic.twitter.com/dOP5e3rcQz— John Keim (@john_keim) September 19, 2019

Jay Gruden is NOT feeling the Jordan Reed questions pic.twitter.com/eDYiydEpEi— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) September 19, 2019
We never seem to get a lot of answers about Jordan Reed because of that nebulous 'concussion protocol.' Here's what the Return-To-Participation Protocol looks like: https://t.co/HfAnzZXJ5f— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) September 19, 2019
If Dunbar can’t go, it sounds like Fabian Moreau will be the starter outside. Gruden said Jimmy Moreland would stick inside— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) September 19, 2019
Gruden on newly-signed LB Noah Spence: "He can rush the passer for sure."— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) September 19, 2019
Now it's a matter of finding defensive packages for him. Gruden said his playing time will be dependent on the status of Cassanova McKinzy, who did not practice today because of a hip injury.
Backup OLB Cassanova McKinzy (hip) is working with trainers on a side field. Could be a chance for Noah Spence to get action Monday.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 19, 2019
If Moreau is back, he’ll be outside to replace Dunbar if Dunny can’t go. Moreland would stay inside.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 19, 2019
Noah Spence is coming along slowly getting introduced to the defense. He’ll only go if McKinzy can’t.
Gruden said they felt it was better for Jonathan Allen to have another day of rest. He said there was no setback. “We wanted him to stay in today and see how he feels,” Gruden said.— John Keim (@john_keim) September 19, 2019
Offensive Line going through individual drills.— Kyle Stackpole (@kylefstackpole) September 19, 2019

Aaron Colvin, whose $34 million contract was terminated by Texans, is playing under one-year contract with Washington and due total of $757,647 for remainder of season. Texans get an offset of that amount from remainder of guaranteed $7.5 million he was due this year.— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) September 19, 2019
Jay Gruden isn't expecting much from Redskins run game vs. Bears https://t.co/wSjYirtR1x— The Redskins Wire (@TheRedskinsWire) September 19, 2019
Tired of the long wait for Monday Night? Let @Tress_Way take you inside one of the most competitive places at #Redskins Park: the ping pong table! @GWallaceWTOP @NickSundberg @Dahop5 @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/QT9eSaTd2C— NBC4 Sports (@NBC4Sports) September 19, 2019
Maybe we need to do a full segment on this later this week, but maybe Bruce is actually getting this one right?— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 19, 2019
The more injuries that happen, the more the price goes up. If the price is picks, there is no urgency. A 2020 1st has the same value in 3 weeks as it does now. https://t.co/nZPMimrap6
of course...which helps the #Redskins. Makes the demand higher on their side. A team might push up the price to get it done.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 19, 2019
The downside would be that some teams punt and there's not as big of a market, but the more urgency the better for the team with the asset.
Dwayne Haskins with the low bred Jordan 1s today. Asked him the other day if he got the new player exclusive 12s made with football materials that were sent to the @Jumpman23 brand football players. Before I could finish he cuts me off with, “Ive got em all..” #redskins pic.twitter.com/QrgDGNS0ak— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 19, 2019
2,481 days since their last HOME win on MNF (Week 13, 2012).— Chris Lingebach (@ChrisLingebach) September 19, 2019
Week 8, 2014 @ Dallas — the 'No Means No!' game — was their last MNF win.
Sorry to see Tony Wylie leave Redskins after 10 years. That may be longest tenure by Redskins PR guy since Charley Taylor in the ‘80s. I’ve dealt with 16 Redskins people and Tony was among the best with Taylor, Charlie Dayton and Mike McCall.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) September 19, 2019
Alexa, how many years is that?— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) September 19, 2019

I love everything about Gardner Minshew.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) September 20, 2019
This league is a damn joke! I just got fined $21k for this hit, I signed up to play football not two hand touch. Bullshit! I don’t give a damn about these soft rules protecting QBs.
