Devin Thomas Makes Friends

Posted by Matt Terl on March 10, 2009 – 4:33 pm

I imagine that some of you are probably aware that I’ve started appearing regularly on Redskins Nation on Comcast SportsNet. Mostly I come on during the third segment of the show, sit next to Larry Michael, answer fan questions, and try not to imagine just how fidgety I probably look on TV. Within that incredibly limited framework, I like to think that I’m doing pretty well with it, and occasionally I come across something interesting to write about while watching them shoot the first two segments.

Case in point: Devin Thomas appears on the first segment of the show today, and — after talking about his offseason work, his predictions for next season, and other sundry offseason topics — mentioned almost casually that he was heading out to the Regal Cinema in Sterling, Virginia, to surprise a fan, David King, who had written him a letter.

Larry was predictably enthused about the situation — as was I — and sent a Redskins.com TV camera to film Devin meeting his fan. I elected to ride along as well. Read more »

Tuesday, March 10: Alfred Fincher Re-Signs

Posted by Matt Terl on March 10, 2009 – 11:21 am

The Redskins announced the re-signing of Alfred Fincher today.

Fincher made the 2008 Redskins squad after a strong preseason and stuck around for the entire season as a special teams guy and took just over 20 snaps at linebacker.

The Fincher of preseason showed some flashes of the player whose third-round selection in the 2005 Draft was the highest for a UConn Husky since 1946, and — given the current linebacker-light makeup of the Redskins roster — this may be the year when he’s finally given a chance to live up to his potential.

Possibly the most interesting Fincher story, though, is a sad one that stretched from his days at Norwood (Massachusetts) High School to the 2004 Motor City Bowl.

When Fincher was in high school, circumstances conspired to force his mother to move, a move that would have taken Fincher out of Norwood and into a different school. Instead, Fincher was taken in by the family of one of his friends, Dan Reen. Read more »
