Turning Point: Ryan Kerrigan

  There comes a point in the history of most franchises where a draft pick can mark a turn for the better or a turn for the worse. Take the Stellers for example when they selected Joe Greene in 1969 and have been good ever since. On the other side of the coin, you have the Lions and the selection of Joey Harrington — or every other draft pick up until Calvin Johnson for that...

  With Jammal Brown scheduled to have an MRI tomorrow on his surgically repaired right hip, the Redskins find themselves in flux at right tackle — yet again — after placing Brown on the physically unable to perform list after he re-injured his hip running sprints last Wednesday.

Reasons For Optimism at Redskins Training Camp

  Yesterday, Bill Thompson wrote a piece on the question marks surrounding Redskins training camp and how there are a lot of unproven positions and reasons for concern when looking over the entire Skins roster.

Questions Surrounding Redskins Training Camp

  Question marks surrounding Redskins camp   Regardless of what the Capitals, Nationals, or Wizards do…. DC is a Redskins town. The Redskins fan base (which I am a part of) is a large and committed one. With those great qualities though comes a lot of delusion (which is a group I am not a part of). The Redskins have reason for excitement — actually having what seems to be...

My 25 Years Of Sports (Redskins & Orioles Style)

Birthday Wishlist   I just turned 25 and I thank you for the energetic HAPPY BIRTHDAY you all just mentally gave me.

Focus On The Good Guys

Far too often in sports are negative people given attention. The Jerry Sandusky and Joe Pa stuff aside because that is a completely different situation than anything that has ever happened in sports. Take for example the countless arrests of NFL players that happen every day for whatever reason (DUI is the stupidest ever these guys have phone numbers to call for people to come get...

Baseball however is different, it is hard not to try. When you throw 96 mph as a pitcher you are going to go out...
