For example, Choice has already met Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall:
I’m told there’s no bad blood between the two, it was just a playmaker, making a play. Choice, who was No. 23 with the Cowboys, has adopted No. 40 with the Redskins.

After that turkey the Washington Redskins threw up (no pun intended) in Toronto, I just needed a day. And so did you. You can read recaps of the shutout loss to the Buffalo Bills in The Post, or The Times or on CSNWashington. Here are a few Hog Heaven side notes:

Tashard Choice will get a chance to get a measure of revenge on the Cowboys this season. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Choice was claimed off waivers by their divisional rivals in Washington. With Tim Hightower out for the season and the Roy Helu/Ryan Torain combo struggling against the Bills, there’s certainly an opportunity…
The Washington Redskins have claimed former Dallas Cowboys running back Tashard Choice off waivers on Monday. This is a good pick up for the Redskins since they recently lost Tim Hightower for the season because of a torn ACL.

STATISTICAL ANALYSIS | In light of Sunday’s shutout at the hands of the Bills, I could write all about how badly the Redskins struggled — how many sacks they allowed, how unsuccessful their running game was, how ineffective their receivers were. I could write about how John Beck played compared to Rex Grossman’s previous outings, or about how new acquisition Tashard Choice...
