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...
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.
