Inactives: Redskins v Eagles

The Redskins Inactives for today’s game against the Phladelphia Eagles are:

WR Aldrick Robinson
LB Rocky McIntosh
RT Jammal Brown
TE Richard Quinn
WR David Anderson
DL Doug Worthington
DE Kentwan Balmer

Rocky Mac being inactive means he’s likely played his last game in the burgundy and gold, and it’s a somewhat surprising, though perhaps fitting end to a tough year for the veteran linebacker. After being allowed to pursue other avenues free agency, but eventually returning when no suitors could be found, and youngster Perry Riley seemed to be struggling slightly in pre-season, Rocky won his starting job back the old-fashioned way – he earned it.

Beltway Battle Preview: Ravens

The Washington Redskins will square off against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night at FedEx Field. The third preseason game is often a very telling tale of what fans can expect to see in Week 1 of the regular season, but will that be true in 2011? With a lockout shortened offseason, NFL teams may very well need that fourth preseason game as well to get ready. Normally, that game is reserved for determining depth positions and/or special teams, but expect to see evaluation throughout the lineup this year. So what should you look for tomorrow night?

Recapping Day 3 of Redskins Free Agency

The Redskins made their biggest move of the day early Thursday morning by shipping disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2013 5th round draft pick. This ends a dark chapter because Haynesworth is widely viewed as arguably the biggest free agent bust in franchise history, which should say something. Ironically, Haynesworth heads to another team with a 3-4 defense and a coach regarded as even stricter than Mike Shanahan in Bill Belichick.

Join Hogettes, Rocky McIntosh At Kaps For Kids Walkathon

I just received an email telling me about the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington DC’s 12th Annual Airbus KAPS FOR KIDS WALK-A-THON, scheduled to take place on April 18th.  

I wanted to post it here for a number of reasons. From a THN perspective, this is a cool way to meet a Redskins player, hang with the Hogettes, and do a great thing while you are at it.
