Akhorus at HailRedskins.com: Cerrato’s stimulus package

Spence, at DC Pro Sports Report: “Finally, a memo to Jim Zorn: Your job is on the line, hombre. The owner just spent a fair chunk of the U.S. stimulus package to make your job easier.”

… Yeah, I’m not coming up with anything either. If only the economy was in the news more, I’m sure it’d be easier. Read more »
