(photo by Larry French) The Washington Redskins made an interesting move this week – claiming Dallas running back Tashard Choice off of waivers. Choice was placed on waivers by the Cowboys to make room for rookie linebacker Bruce Carter and became expendable because of the emergence of DeMarco Murray. The fourth-year pro has been saddled with nagging shoulder [...]

Players Happy With Team’s Waiver Choice

When new Redskins running back Tashard Choice arrives in the locker room this morning, no introductions will be necessary.  Most of those have already happened. 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...

Quick and Dirty Scouting Report On New Redskins RB Tashard Choice

The Washington Redskins signed ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Tashard Choice off waivers and signed him to the roster yesterday. Redskins Hog Heaven turned to Darren Shetler, our Bloguin colleague who covers the Cowboys on The Cowboys Nation blog, for a quick scouting report on Choice. Here's what he had to say: "He [Choice] had 2 fumbles on 27 carries this year and is...

Hamstring still bothering Tashard Choice

Washington’s newest running back, Tashard Choice, says his sore hamstring likely will keep him from playing Sunday against San Francisco, but he hopes to make his Redskins debut Nov. 13 at Miami. The Redskins claimed Choice off waivers Monday. He was waived by the Dallas Cowboys two days earlier. The chance to play for a division rival, he says, is a blessing in disguise. Read...

Redskins Vets Picking On The New Guy

One of the hardest transitions in professional sports is changing teams mid-seasons.  Aside from all of the elements that change on the field, adjusting to the culture of the team off the field can be even harder. Most players get ignored.  Most have to build up their reputation on the field and prove that they belong before anyone will welcome them in. And then there’s new...

Redskins Fans Who Quit On The Team Should Look At The Bills, Tashard Choice Signs On.

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: The Tashard Choice "solution" means that Evan Royster and Ryan Torain are not; 'Skins fans give up too...

Only the Redskins made waivers claim for Tashard Choice

Now that the Redskins have slid back to the middle of the pack, there was a chance that other, better teams made a claim for former Cowboys running back Tashard Choice, and that the Redskins secured dibs via their 3-4 record.  The Lions, for example, could use help at the position, but their 6-2 record…

Young To Choice: Welcome To The Family

AP Image This season, the Redskins running game has been similar to the push-mower I used in high school: sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t.  Sometimes it’s very dangerous, and sometimes it’s just ignored in the shed. With the subtraction of Tim Hightower and the addition of Tashard Choice, Redskins fullback Darrel Young is hoping that the Redskins have found that...

Tashard Choice is now a Redskin. Could Martellus Bennett be next?

(photo from dallascowboys.com)The prayers of many in Cowboy Nation were answered late last week when RB Tashard Choice was released by the Dallas Cowboys. Then yesterday, Choice signed with the Washington Redskins and those prayers were replaced by gasps. But our division rivals may not yet be done picking through our left-overs.Choice was released after his sub-par play this season...

Nothing more critical to Redskins than offensive line depth

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...
