Like many other NFL teams this season, the Washington Redskins have loaded the team's playbooks onto iPads for the players to use. Equipped with security where if you mistype the password 5 times the entire iPad is erased, the iPads also have another feature, anonymous messaging.
Created so the players could talk about a given play, instead the Redskins have been using the feature to send trash-talking messages to the entire team.
"I don’t know who figured it out or who started it," tight end Chris Cooley said, "Like I said, [the messages are] anonymous. As of today, there are maybe fifty postings. My opinion is that it will take off."
Some players didn't know about it but in the highly competitive world of football you can bet there is going to be some heat.
"Man, they don't want to play with me," linebacker Chris Wilson said. "I’ll [trash talk] someone for no reason, just because I can. I’ll make some alliances, take people out. No joke."

“So, it’s one of those situations where you guys are all like, ‘Oh, you failed it...
Washington Redskins defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer showed up for training camp last week and has now been missing for two straight days. The Redskins claim that his absence is unexcused.

On an improved defense last season, the Washington Redskins' safety play was still a weak link.
Strong side starter LaRon Landry never truly recovered from the Achilles injury that ended his 2010 season prematurely, and newcomer Oshiomogho Atogwe was often ailing and wasn't the playmaker he had been during his best years with the St. Louis Rams.
Exit Landry and Atgowe....
