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.

I wonder if the 49ers wish they traded down from the #2 pick last year lol— I’m Dre (@MrDcSportsBack) January 11, 2020
Hummmm...— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) January 12, 2020
Correct me if I'm wrong but the team with the best record in the NFC this year, and a rebuilding team who is going to the NFC Champ game this year went Armstead(15'), Buckner(16') - then Got ANOTHER DE(Thomas 2017) the same year they got their QB(17'). https://t.co/MdreckOgW1

49ers are such a good example of how the smart teams invest at the lines of scrimmage. Between the OL and DL, there are six first-round picks, and two more big-ticket veteran acquisitions.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 11, 2020
Their leading WR today is a rookie 2nd-rounder, their leading rusher's on a one-year deal.
What if I told you a certain team in the 2010s used first round picks on DL Mo Wilkerson, Quinton Coples, Sheldon Richardson, Leonard Williams, and Quinnen Williams https://t.co/jNTkQTHZaT— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) January 11, 2020

JC17 (paraphrasing) says Zampese might be a bigger higher than Turner— Redskins Rant (@RedskinsRant) January 11, 2020
Also says Turner offense made for big-arm QBs
Couple years ago... dismal crowds and poor records under shaky ownership for a once proud franchise. Big makeover and... here they are. Can it happen here? History not kind here but took the proper first step. See where it goes from here. https://t.co/4fz1vAQnc5— John Keim (@john_keim) January 11, 2020
Last two weeks for Bruce:— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) January 11, 2020
- fired after 10 years with #Redskins & year-plus #FireBruceAllen campaign
- neither thanked nor even acknowledged by Dan, who did throw obvious shot in saying #Skins needed culture change
- today will see Kyle or Kurt advance to NFC Championship Game pic.twitter.com/tDLfHOx08T
Have seen people question whether Rivera deserves the power he has, but it’s the Ashburn tax. Organization had to be torched to be rebuilt. The hope is a strong leader like him can surround himself with the necessary resources to pull it off. GM hire will be big. https://t.co/FGqOTkBsha— Marshall (@MWharam7) January 10, 2020
Another safety to watch out for in free agency Karl Joseph coached by Jack Del Rio ! #Redskins— SWAY RUN 21 ❤️ (@swayrun21) January 10, 2020

Crazy how many people are wearing my Ravens #8 jersey in Baltimore today— Trent Dilfer (@DilfersDimes) January 11, 2020
The #49ers have 132 rushing yards and 117 passing yards. When your identity is run first and you push that identity, you can win football games consistently. Up 24-10. Go ahead, yell at me about how no team should ever run the ball because it's a waste of time. I don't care.— Chris Russell AKA "The Rooster" (@Russellmania621) January 11, 2020

I remember watching Derrick Henry at Alabama wondering how his game -- physically dominating everyone -- would translate in the NFL. Answer: It translated to him physically dominating everyone in the NFL. https://t.co/Us619nWgla— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 12, 2020

If you hadn't watched any NFL this year, and were told this game involved the probable season 2019 MVP, you would have to absolutely believe it was Derrick Henry.— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) January 12, 2020

Ravens/Titans update:— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) January 12, 2020
One player has thrown for 2 TDs and rushed for 1 TD.
One player has rushed for 125 yards and thrown a TD.
None of those players are Lamar Jackson. What are the odds of that?

Would it really be THAT crazy to believe Haslam is basing his Head Coaching decision on how Stefanski's offense (and Saleh's defense) performs tomorrow? After all this is the same owner who waited to see if Kitchens beat CIN in Week 17 to decide whether to fire him. #Browns https://t.co/P1R3Ng6hbU— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) January 11, 2020
5 teams this offseason needed a new a Head Coach. 4 of those teams interviewed 3 or less candidates. All 4 of those teams have hired their new HC.— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) January 11, 2020
The only team to interview more than 3 is the #Browns, who interviewed EIGHT and are still coach-less.
Still reinventing the wheel.
Btw, this doesn't mean a firm decision has been made ... just that they're winding down -- if they're down to 2 or 3 candidates (i.e. Stefanski, McDaniels, Saleh), that's good enough to get the ball rolling on a few of those guys' preferred GM types.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 11, 2020
They don't know yet. What Breer is saying is the Browns are trying to find the best GM match with the coach and hire them together. Kinda like a game of pictionary!— Paul (@Ickpoc) January 11, 2020
If “good” is a new synonym for “humiliating” then yes— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) January 11, 2020
I think admitting they didn't want to match the Rhule contract is worse.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) January 11, 2020
I would've made it all about Judge, how much they loved him, he was the guy, no longer interested in Rhule, etc.
Appreciate the honesty but ...
