With the weekend fast approaching and a bit of a lull from the hustle and bustle of the last few days, now is a good spot to catch our breath. Shanahan is making this team his own, for better or worse, and things are coming into shape.
The Times tells us what happened to get us here. Training camp has started. In about five weeks Skins fans will fill FedEx parking lots in anticipation of the first game of the year. Inboxes across the country are filling with emails trying to hammer down a fantasy draft date. Football is coming, enjoy it.
Hogs Haven posted a thorough review of where the Skins could go next. One name I loved seeing as a possible Redskin was John Kuhn, fullback from the Packers. I think it’s time to end the Mike Sellers era and Kuhn is young, skilled and versatile. I also hung out with him once at a wedding and watched him chug Long Island Ice Teas. Not drink them fast; he actually chugged what seemed like three in a row. Now that is versatility.
We will try and post anything big happening over the weekend, but I’ll also be at the beach drinking beer and eating crabs so it will have to be important. Cutting Macho Harris won’t qualify. Cutting Brandon Banks probably would.
Let’s keep an eye out to see if/when Rex Grossman actually signs. While the oddly confident John Beck is certainly maximizing his 15 minutes, Rex is still the more qualified starter. By all accounts Rex will be back this year, but until pen meets paper you never know.
