Thursday Redskins Links – 1/15

Posted by Matt Terl on January 15, 2009 – 3:52 pm

  • Sugar at Hogs Haven is trying to figure out what compensatory picks the Redskins are likely to receive in the upcoming NFL Draft despite not knowing the secret formula. Get your guess in now.
  • Cold Hard Football Facts does an excellent job of pinpointing just what’s created the insane mess of the NFL playoffs this season: the 2002 divisional realignment. They use statistics, charts, graphs, pseudo-economist terms, all that good stuff, and they pull together a strong case. The one thing they don’t take into account is the fact that people like me actually enjoy the uncertainty of the current playoff system, but who knows, maybe I’m the only one. It’s a good article either way.
  • Spence at the DC Pro Sports Report notices something interesting in a quote from one of Ed Werder’s unnamed “Cowboys sources” on the whole will-they-dump-T.O. mess. What I personally find interesting is that an aging, big-name wide receiver may be cut and I haven’t seen a single article yet discussing the possibility of the Redskins winding up with him. Usually, that’s the precise situation when columnists break out their nine-year-old Deion Sanders references. Maybe tomorrow.

That certainly didn’t help the Redskins during their doomed late-season push, and now the team is in its offseason while the playoffs roll on.

I caught up with Samuels today in the training room while trainer Elliot Jermyn worked on his knee and arm, and talked to him about the offseason so far.

How’s the rehab going? How do you feel?

“Well, I’m busting my butt every day, but the trainers, they’re not doing a good job. [He and Jermyn laugh.] No, I’m just kidding. As you know, I tore my tricep, 50 percent of it off the bone-”

That sounds excruciating.

“It’s tough, you know. Lot of pain. But right now it actually doesn’t hurt and things are coming along fine. So I had my tricep repaired, my right knee repaired — just a scope to clean it up or whatever — so everything is starting to feel really good.”
