  1. <a href="http://voices.washin...-minicamp.html" target="_blank">http://voices.washin...nicamp.html</a> Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who skipped the Redskins' voluntary workout program in protest of his new role on the team, will not attend the mandatory minicamp that begins Wednesday and wants to be traded, his agent said Tuesday night. "The Redskins are trying to establish a new regime with new schemes at Redskins Park, and it is not an organization that Albert would have ever been attracted to just a short year ago - regardless of the money," agent Chad Speck said in a phone interview. "He has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins. "This situation will be a distraction to the Redskins and to Albert and his teammates. I am certain [head coach] Mike [shanahan] and [General Manager] Bruce [Allen] want to get the most out of their first year and it's probably in everyone's best interests for the Redskins to make a deal and trade Albert." Redskins Senior Vice President Tony Wylie said "We're preparing for minicamp, so Coach Shanahan will address your question tomorrow." For weeks, Haynesworth has privately expressed frustration to some teammates about the coaching staff's decision to use him as a nose tackle in Washington's new 3-4 defensive scheme, and told them he would not participate in voluntary activities as defined by the league's collective bargaining agreement. Team officials maintain they have never discussed trading the two-time all-pro, but the Redskins have had talks with clubs interested in acquiring Haynesworth, according to people familiar with the situation. Haynesworth missed all but one day of Coach Mike Shanahan's 47-day voluntary program, including six days of minicamps, 13 organized team activities and 28 days designated for lifting, according to a copy of the team's offseason schedule. In March, he attended Shanahan's introductory session to inform him he planned to train on his own. Shanahan, who shortly after his hiring stressed the importance of his offseason program, acknowledged he was disappointed in Haynesworth's decision, but the NFL's collective bargaining agreement prohibits teams from fining players for skipping voluntary activities. The two-day minicamp is Washington's only mandatory event, and Haynesworth is aware of the potential consequences of his actions, Speck said.
  2. This has been a hot topic as of late. With the rumor that he had began drinking again being leaked by someone who was a team employee, Chris Cooley from their radio station from what I understand. They finally made the decision to fire him, effective immediately. He hadn't been at any of the scouting events, and although the Redskins social media accounts tried to pull a fast one by saying he was still involved, just at home watching tape and whatnot. Looks like that was just words.
  4. Do you think the Philadelphia Eagles win this years divisional games against the Redskins? Or will they fall? Do you think they'll win both? Reply below.
  5. Heading to the Iggles/Skins game at FedEx field on 10/16 with my old man, and looking for some advice on a good place to stay for the night. We'll just be driving in on Sunday morning, and hoped to get a hotel close-ish to the stadium with mass transit/taxi options (def planning to suck some beers down with pops for this one!). A hotel near some restaurants/bars to check out the late games would be nice too. Would be awesome if anyone knew any Eagle-friendly places to hang too. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Go birds!
  6. Can't make this **** up. Cut by the Pats. Then suddenly it's reported the Redskins swing a trade for him. THEN, about an hour later it's reported he is retiring. I'm done man.

  11. Dave, Have you heard anything about possible contingency plans in case Joaquin is too much of a problem?
  12. While the Eagles have some ongoing injury concerns on defense, Washington are dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball. On offense, guard Lauvao is likely OUT, and DJax still remains questionable. Tackle Moses is also dealing with an injury. On defense, DeAngelo Hall is OUT, with Riley's status still unknown. Bradford still hasn't demonstrated anything in the way of consistency or reliability, so going forward I'm still concerned about our passing game. The run blocking was significantly improved however, and Sproles and Mathews were able to finally move the football against the Jets. Like others, I am very confused as to why Ertz and Celek have been silent and completely underutilized in the pass game. With Bradford still trying to establish himself and the receivers not yet showing significant production, the TEs should be major targets. Alfred Morris had very few carries against the Giants, however the Redskins still have a strong running game. Without DJax, Jordan Reed has got to be our main worry as he's been effective so far this season and we have shown in the past that we struggle against NFCE TEs! D. Hall injury weakens a secondary already missing a starting safety. Riley's status will be important through this week as their defense will struggle to manage without two veteran playmakers. The Eagles will have to wait to see the severity of Thornton and Kendricks' injuries, but even more important for this Sunday's game may be the status of Riley and DJax.
