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 announce they waived DL T.Y. McGill from the 53. Return to five DL with Allen back.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 24, 2019
I know Bruce and Dan didn’t leave FedEx until about 2:45 am this morning. Alex Smith was with them too. That’s about three hours after the game ended which actually isn’t all that atypical. I’m sure what they were talking about was still quite intense though— Pete Hailey (@PeteHaileyNBCS) September 24, 2019
I've covered a lot of, uh, 'stuff' here over the years. A lot of bad. If things don't change soon, this has the potential to be the worst. Mainly because of the frustration/unrest from past meltdowns the base carried into this year. Attendance down; ratings down...Good morning!— John Keim (@john_keim) September 24, 2019
Opposing QBs have completed 79 of 100 passes against the #Redskins. That's a league-worst 79 percent.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019
No surprise but per @espn "Pass Rush Win Rate" metrics:— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
Khalil Mack won an #NFL Week 3 high, 36% of the time.
A win is defined as "a pass-rusher is able to beat his block within 2.5 seconds."https://t.co/f7eXpILhTx#Redskins #Bears
A source with the #Redskins tells me— Darren M. Haynes (@DarrenMHaynes) September 24, 2019
“Jay Gruden isn’t putting [Dwayne] Haskins in a position to get better. He’s not getting any reps with our offense. He’s running mostly scout team. If Gruden keeps Haskins in this position, how will he ever be prepared to play?” @wusa9 #HTTR pic.twitter.com/fSE1apACno
Ask the guys who drafted him. Aka Bruce/Dan.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 24, 2019
You guys don't think this is why the football people didn't wanna take him 15? It's not like they didn't like him. They love the kid. They knew he wasn't ready.
That is the whole point. Full stop. https://t.co/RnhyOhbhuX
Just realized Jay Gruden's final act will be a kamikaze mission to conjure one last opportunity for Colt McCoy. pic.twitter.com/fhqMO84t57— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) September 24, 2019

Here's the problem: Jay gets himself in a weird spot with how he answers stuff like this. He expected Jordan to be fine for week one, week two & then started changing tune. Now the message is different again. https://t.co/eTQ0F1Jyx0— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
Didn't like the way I characterized Gruden's comments on Jordan Reed. Do-over. Says the TE has seen multiple specialists. Trying to get to the bottom of the matter with the goal of Reed returning to the field.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 24, 2019
Follow up on Reed now that the call is over.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 24, 2019
If he has to retire, it's because he literally can't play. He wants to play. That hasn't changed. He's trying to play. That hasn't changed. His head has to respond better to increased activity or he can't play. https://t.co/p31udCneMk
Gruden said he doesn't feel like Jordan Reed is facing retirement.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019
As for his own job, Gruden doesn't feel it's in jeopardy, "but who knows?"— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 24, 2019
Gruden emphasizing that they've played only three games. They're young. They'll get better.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 24, 2019
"Defensively we've underachieved, but I still think they'll come together."
Rejects the idea of making mid-season changes on the staff.
Jay: "If we feel like Dwayne gives us the best chance to win in a coming game, we'll definitely put Dwayne in there. If we feel like it's Colt when he gets healthy, it could be Colt. But right now we feel like it's Case Keenum and we're going to move forward with him this week."— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) September 24, 2019
Gruden today: No staff changes. No player changes. Jordan Reed should totally play more football this year. pic.twitter.com/78lZusfqt4— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) September 24, 2019
Gruden said several times today he believes the season is not lost and talks about getting a run started on Sunday.— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) September 24, 2019
Gruden asked if the locker room is still as confident as he is: Hope so, better be.— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019
Gruden on the biggest surprise at 0-3. Goes with the defense especially on 3rd down. Thought last year the D with Alex Smith led to the 6-3 start. That version hasn't shown yet but he remains optimistic.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 24, 2019
Gruden on if prefers Haskins not play this year: "We've played 3 games. The season is not lost. I know everybody wants to say it's over go ahead & play Haskins. We feel confident we can turn this thing around...If Dwayne gives us the best chance 2 win, we'll put him in there."— John Keim (@john_keim) September 24, 2019
"Dwayne’s not ready to play," @CraigHoffman told @ALawRadio. "He didn’t (win the starting job) because he wasn’t good enough. Putting him out there (against the #Bears) would have been a disaster." #Redskinshttps://t.co/MjozdtmaP3— CBS Sports Radio (@CBSSportsRadio) September 24, 2019
Gruden on the QB Sneak:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) September 24, 2019
"We've never preached jumping over the pile."
Essentially says that's what you get for trying that. Clearly disappointed in his decision making.
Between Alex Smith and Jordan Reed, the #Redskins have just over $30 M in 2019 cap value locked up in guys that they will get next to production from because of horribly unlucky injuries.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
The Trent Williams situation is weird because #Skins get cap credit back. Empowers them.
He's right to a point. They have played three playoff teams. They haven't played even decent "ball" yet.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
The rest is just hope at this point. Should be no anticipation about anything rosy. https://t.co/i1DDIQH4yb
How much more can Redskins season ticket holders take? Bad home losses are wearing on them. They need a feel-good win to remind them why they pay for tickets.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) September 24, 2019
Next home game: The Patriots.
The #Redskins loss was bad on a lot of levels. The team might seriously be tone-deaf to seeing yet another home game being taken over by the visiting teams fans. Skins have no home field advantage whatsoever and it seems fans are truly fed up until changes are made.— Lake Lewis Jr (@LakeLewis) September 25, 2019
There's no easy fix (obviously) but delaying the inevitable, only makes it worse. In so many ways.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
Dan has to know by now: It's never going to work. https://t.co/InZE4kibup
Montae Nicholson, Josh Norman and Landon Collins played every defensive snap (66). Fabian Moreau had 63. Jimmy Moreland 49 and Deshazor Everett 6. None for Apke or Colvin. #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019
Shaun Dion Hamilton didn't play a single defensive snap yesterday. 18 on special teams. Cole Holcomb 31 defensive snaps. Jon Bostic played all 66. #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019
Brought up teams going at Josh Norman some despite injuries in the secondary. Gruden says he's a little surprised how much teams are going at him.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 24, 2019
Oh Jay ....C'mon now! There's this notion that Josh just started to struggle.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) September 24, 2019
He knows that is NOT the case. https://t.co/Io6p5PGoz2
Gruden called G Brandon Scherff day to day with an ankle sprain. #Redskins— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) September 24, 2019

Via #Redskins PR, Landon Collins re: Chicago's use of crossing routes on offense: "I just think they knew what we was in, and just kinda got to beat us in what we were in."— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) September 24, 2019

More boos here at Nationals Park for Bryce Harper as he bats in the 5th. Then cheers as he lines out. Will be kind of sad the day he's greeted with just total apathy here. In like 2025. Probably. #Nats #Phillies— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) September 24, 2019
In May, Bryce Harper & the Phillies were in 1st place and had a 10 game lead on his former team. Phillies fans were everywhere ridiculing them for it.— Rudy Gersten (@DCBarno) September 24, 2019
Bryce Harper & the Phillies were just officially eliminated from playoff contention, by his former team, in his former stadium. pic.twitter.com/xdDJHKHoJQ
