The space shuttle Nick Sundberg has officially blasted off into the social media universe, spreading his messages of long snapping and wry observations. His Twitter handle is (@NickSundberg).
I’ll have to find out the story behind that name.
As I write this post, he has already jumped from 317 followers, to 322. One of those was me.
This is a recap of his first two weeks on the Twitter platform.
There was the “Welcome to Twitter” tweet:

BEST OF MAXIM
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan this week reaches the halfway point of his rookie season, and counting training camp, he has now been going for 11 weeks straight — almost the equivalent of a full college season.
Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said that he hasn’t noticed any wearing down or hitting of the rookie wall, and that he is pleased with Kerrigan’s durability...
As recently as 2008, Clinton Portis was pretty awesome. Just last October he was the Redskins’ starting running back. Now, one year later and seemingly as healthy as a 30-year-old with 2,230 career carries can be, he’s probably finished. The timeline:
Nov. 24, 2010 — Portis goes on injured reserve with a groin injury. We give our thanks later that day.
Feb. 28, 2011 — The...
The Washington Redskins have put cornerback Phillip Buchanon on season-ending injured reserve.
Buchanon has been troubled by neck and knee problems and appeared in only two games this season after being suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
This was his second season with Washington and 10th in the league.
HIT THE 'SKINS
When used properly marketing can be a powerful thing. Little known (and probably even less used) condom company NuVo Condoms sent Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck a weekly supply for protection, after he was sacked a whopping 9 times last Sunday by the Buffalo Bills. Here are details, per a press release sent to the [...]
Washington Redskins starting free safety Oshiomogho Atogwe missed a second straight practice with knee and toe injuries, according to the team’s injury report.
It’s the same knee injury that sidelined Atogwe two games ago. He played last week but aggravated the knee and suffered the toe injury against the Bills.

Day Two of trying to make Kevin Durant a serious football player:
Yesterday, I asked you, the people of Redskins Nation, to step into the loafers of general manager Bruce Allen, and decide whether or not you would bring in NBA star, Maryland Native, and noted Redskins fan Kevin Durant.
To the tune of 81 percent, you said “Yes!”
Today, the fine folks at Panini America (via SBNation’s...

Coach Mike Shanahan said Trent Williams was limited in practice Friday, but he would not rule out the Redskins’ second-year left tackle for Sunday’s game against San Francisco. Shanahan said Williams will be a game-time decision.
>> Tight end Fred Davis, safety Oshiomogho Atogwe and cornerback Phillip Buchanon will be listed as questionable for Sunday’s contest, Shanahan...
The 49ers already are the first West Coast team since 1996 to win three games in the Eastern time zone, and Sunday they can become the first San Francisco team to start 4-0 on the road since 1992 when they face the host Washington Redskins. NinersDigest identifies the keys to the game and what the 6-1 Niners need to do to beat the Redskins and match their best start since 1997.
I’m obviously obsessed with television ratings for D.C.’s pro teams, and how they rank to other franchises around the country. I don’t know why. I just am.
Usually, these comparisons are limited to MLB, NHL and NBA franchises, based on SportsBusiness Journal’s twice-a-year look at the regional sports network rankings. In the most recently completed seasons, according to SBJ...
1. Can the offense, um, score a point? Turns out you can't win if you don't score. The Redskins should really look into that this week. Seriously, though, it's back to basics. The offensive line must establish the running game and quarterback John Beck must see the field better and ...
When he reviewed the play of his defensive line during the 2010 season, Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett came to the conclusion that the unit wasn’t as effective as it should have been. A big reason for that, Haslett realized, was the linemen wore down as they reached the homestretch.

Ahmad Brooks remembers going to RFK Stadium as a child to cheer for the Washington Redskins, the team his father, Perry Brooks, played for as a defensive tackle from 1978-84.
Brooks would wear his burgundy and gold and watch in admiration as the Redskins of old authored their storied careers.
On Sunday, Brooks, now an outside linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, will face the...
What if Kevin Durant played for the Washington Redskins, is apparently the new what if LeBron James played for the Cleveland Browns.
After dominating the random flag football game he recently played in as quarterback and defensive back, scoring four touchdowns and picking off three passes. Panini America decided to have some fun with the KD football madness and designed this Durant...
We all know what the D.C. media says about the Redskins, but what’s going on behind enemy lines? During the season, we’re going to head over to the opposing side and look in on the game chatter in preparation for that week’s match up.
This week we’re checking out what the 49ers and the San Francisco media are saying about the Redskins.
The media says…
“The 49ers should...
