Rocky McIntosh Is Quirky, Business-Savvy, And A Good Student

Posted by Matt Terl on March 5, 2009 – 3:53 pm

A couple of weeks ago, Rocky McIntosh set up shop a cubicle not far from where I sit in Redskins Park. This wasn’t like when Antwaan Randle El made a couple of phone calls from the front desk and I joked that he was the receptionist; Rocky actually moved himself into the cube and decided it was his new office space.

There was no discernible reason for him to do this; he just showed up (wearing a red shirt, with matching glasses and watch), complained about how dirty the previous occupant had left the space, and put up some personal decorations. Read more »

Redskins Sign Dirk Johnson — PUNTER BATTLE GO!

Posted by Matt Terl on March 5, 2009 – 12:09 pm

Well, another training camp battle is shaping up, as the team has signed some punting competition for young Zac Atterberry (aka “Guy From Lindenwood”): say hello to Dirk Johnson.

Johnson is something of an NFL journeyman, spreading 69 regular season games between four different teams. (Most recently, twelve games last season with Arizona.) So he’s a veteran, and he specifically has experience punting in the NFC East, having kicked for Philadelphia for four years including their Super Bowl season. That’s the good news from a kicking standpoint.

From a blogging standpoint, he promises to be a blunt and pragmatic speaker, which is always nice. The Arizona Republic recounted some highlights of Johnson’s return to his old high school as graduation keynote speaker:

Thursday, March 5: Terrell Owens On The Market, Redskins Fans About To Explode

Posted by Matt Terl on March 5, 2009 – 10:03 am

I first saw the news that the Dallas Cowboys had released Terrell Owens on ProFootballTalk shortly after it was posted at 12:17 last night (or, technically, this morning). Four minutes earlier than that, at 12:13, at least one thread had gone up on ExtremeSkins about if the Redskins should sign Owens or not.

Some sample reactions (with elaborate animated smileys removed):

Slacky McSlackass: I in no way would like for Danny to go out and sign TO. And in no way would I EVER want to see that piece of **** in our sacred burgundy and gold.

NastyBoy: Good Lord we’ve officially spiraled WAY out of control.

Sawyer5500: I just lost my dinner. SAY NO TO OWENS!

wunderhill: Not even if it guaranteed a superbowl win! This is crazy…what the hell is a matter with you people…don’t you have any pride?

NYSkins: no way in ******* hell

So that’s a no, then? Not according to this morning’s complete speculation from, again, ProFootballTalk: Read more »
