On the Field for Practice – 12/26

Posted by Matt Terl on December 26, 2008 – 1:15 pm

Today marked the last practice at Redskins Park for the 2008 season, which means that this marks the last of these updates. The buses roll for the airport soon, but let’s try this one more time with feeling.

  • The weather today was cool and somewhat cloudy, but the fields were dry and the wind wasn’t strong enough to interfere with the passing game. The vibe — somewhat surprisingly to me — was completely businesslike, right up until the very last few plays, which were accompanied by some cheering. “I feel like it’s a workweek, Coach Zorn said afterward. “I want them to feel like this is any other week.”
  • After having everyone on the field yesterday, London Fletcher rested today, although he’s still likely to go on Sunday. Kedric Golston and Jon Jansen were limited, and may be gametime decisions on Sunday. (Although Zorn did note that if Jansen can go, he’ll start.)

One More Vote

Posted by Matt Terl on December 26, 2008 – 10:53 am

As a few people have pointed out via email, there’s voting to be done. And just because the Pro Bowl balloting is over doesn’t mean we’re off the hook.

Jean Ramey is alive in the final round of voting for the fan video portion of Samsung’s NFL Superad competition. So head on over to the site, watch Ms. Ramey’s video — her story is legitimately funny — and throw your vote her way. Read more »

Friday, December 26: Chris Cooley Gives, Receives Gifts

Posted by Matt Terl on December 26, 2008 – 8:50 am

Hey, happy Boxing Day, everybody!

(Yesterday, when I asked famously Canadian Redskin Shaun Suisham if he had big Boxing Day plans, he was very excited. “You know about Boxing Day?” he asked, and I allowed that I did. “You should blog about that tomorrow and tell everybody about Boxing Day.”

(I said that all I knew was that one of the possible origins of Boxing Day was that it was when the rich people boxed up their Christmas leftovers to give to the servants, and not much else, and he shrugged. “That’s supposedly where it comes from. Now it’s kind of like the day after Thanksgiving here.” A big shopping day? “Pretty much, yeah. A lot of sales and stuff.” So now you know!)

Anyhow, I didn’t notice a whole lot of intra-locker-room Christmas cheer yesterday. Most of the guys were in an understandable rush to get home and spend at least a few hours of Christmas with their actual loved ones, instead of with their co-workers.

Which is not to say that there weren’t a few gifts exchanged.

The shirt Chris Cooley is wearing in that picture is a gift from Todd Yoder — a gift that matches coincidentally well with the pants Cooley received from his in-laws. Read more »
