Time Machine: Edge Rushers #ThrowbackThursday

Welcome to the Time Machine! The Throwback Thursday feature that allows you to swap current players with former players. Today’s edition is for Edge Rusher.

You can either choose to keep the current player that holds the roster spot, or you can travel back in time in the Commandelorean and pick up one of three players that played that position at some point.

Washington Waste Opportunities And Fall 33-22 At Fed Ex

The Washington Football Team didn’t put a very good foot forward at Fed Ex Field on Sunday. In a game where they certainly had some opportunities,  they were ultimately spanked by the New Orleans Saints 33-22.

Early on it looked like Washington’s defense might finally catch fire, when Colt Holcomb intercepted Jameis Winston on the Saints very first drive. The WFT couldn’t capitalize fully on the turnover but did manage a Dustin Hopkins field goal to take an early 3-0 lead.

Wallpaper Wednesday: 2021 Schedule Wallpapers

My apologies for the “late” nature of these schedule wallpapers, but I was offline for an extended period. The original plan was to post these weekly for a few weeks leading up to the season. Due to their tardy nature, I am posting them all today.

It is a long tradition at THN dating back to the early 2000’s for us to create schedule wallpapers for the season. This year, most of the wallpapers posted on Wallpaper Wednesday were created for mobile devices and at 1080×1920 resolution.

Enjoy! And share!

Washington Wraps Up 2021 Mini Camp: WFT News And Notes

The Washington Football Team wrapped up their three-day 2021 Mini Camp on Thursday. While these workouts are glorified walk-throughs, and no contact is involved, here are some of the observations coming out of camp.

Quarterback Situation

Much has been made about bringing in veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the off-season. By most accounts, Fitzpatrick had a decent camp. He did throw a few interceptions, but in his first experience in a new offense, that’s to be expected.

Chase Young Caps Off Dynamite Rookie Season With Major Award

Last night, Chase Young became the first Washington player ever, to win the Associated Press Defensive Rookie Of The Year. It came as a surprise to nobody. The second overall pick in 2020 has been on a collision course with the award since mid-season.

His leadership is beyond his years. It became apparent by the mid-way point of the season, that Young was the unquestionable leader of the Washington defense. Already, in his rookie season. A defense that was playing well. So well, that it was largely on the strength of those performances that Washington went 5-2 in their final seven games.
