Found March 28, 2012 on Redskins Hog Heaven:
This is a good 'get' by Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: Garcon averaged 5.2 yards after the catch last season, 22nd among the the 85 receivers with at least 30 receptions. He's expected to start at 'X' receiver (split end), while Morgan will compete with Hankerson for the starting 'Z' (flanker) spot. "Josh Morgan is a complete football player," Shanahan continued. "He can block. He can run. He can catch. He’s one of the most underrated guys that I thought was out there when I talk about a complete football player." That's a piece of rarely useful information from Mike Shanahan this time of year.  It suggests a couple of things.  First off, we already know that the typical Redskins receivers rotation is four guys.  It seems like Garcon is going to be handed the starting 'X' receiver position (played mostly by Gaffney, but by Santana Moss primarily when the team was in base personnel).  Josh Morgan and Leonard Hanke...

Donovan McNabb Disses Mike Shanahan…Hard.

Nobody can hate like Donovan McNabb can hate; just ask Terrell Owens. Today McNabb was featured on ESPN’s First Take. Of course he was baited with the obvious question about whether or not Robert Griffin III would work out under Mike Shannan. He did not just say “no.” He took it well… deep. “Here’s a guy (Robert Griffin III) coming out who’s very talented, mobile...

Daniel Snyder must be STOPPED!

Was the theft of $46 million in salary cap space from the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys specifically directed at Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones?

Daniel Snyder to NFL owners: I want my salary cap back

I wonder if Mr. Snyder is having a good time at the NFL owners' meeting in Florida this week. The league bushwhacked the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys for $46 million salary cap. It turns out that the NFL Management Council did the whacking for using the no-cap year (2010) under the old Collective Bargaining Agreement to bring order to the teams' contract structure...
