Redskins 2009 Preseason Schedule Released

Posted by Matt Terl on March 30, 2009 – 1:07 pm

The NFL released the preseason schedule today, and … well, it’s pointless to get too worked up about preseason football, because you never know who’ll be playing and for how long and how hard anyone’s going to be trying.

But it’s a tough batch of opponents, based on 2008 performance.

The Redskins were 0-2 against the two of these teams we played last year (Pittsburgh, Baltimore), 0-1 against the one we played in preseason last year (Jacksonville), and the last time we played New England it resulted in a 52-7 drubbing. The list also features six of the last nine Super Bowl champions, and twelve of the last twenty competitors in the AFC Championship Game.

Personally, I like the tough draw — if the point of preseason is to work out your system and your younger players, facing off against the two top defenses from the previous year (and three of the top ten) is better than lining up punching bags and showing how fantastic you can be in a meaningless game. (Remember Osaka?)

Anyhow, here it is. A firm date and time is set only for the nationally televised game, but that’s the all-important third one anyhow. Start making your tailgating plans now!

  • Preseason Week 1 (August 13-17): @ Baltimore Ravens
  • Preseason Week 2 (August 20-24): Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Friday, August 28, 8:00 p.m.: New England Patriots, nationally televised on CBS
  • Preseason Week 4 (September 3-4): @ Jacksonville Jaguars

If they ranked preseason strength of schedule, I’d be hard-pressed to imagine one that’s much tougher, but it’s still enough to start me getting excited for the 2009 season. Not bad, given that college basketball hasn’t even finished yet.

(UPDATE: Per the Ravens website, the Week 1 game is tentatively scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Thursday, August 13.)

After the jump, the full list of nationally televised preseason games. Read more »

Monday, March 30: Ethan Albright Is Enthused

Posted by Matt Terl on March 30, 2009 – 11:49 am

Ethan Albright doesn’t always love being the object of attention — a fair bit of Casey Rabach‘s footage from being on the road sits largely unseen because Albright is sitting in the background making unkind gestures at the camera.

But this weekend, North Carolina advanced to the NCAA Final Four, so Albright was more than happy to stop and show off his gear. Rabach actually predicted this (once he got done asking me where my umbrella was). “Oh, yeah,” he said. “Ethan’ll definitely want his picture taken. Definitely.”

And he did.

Malcolm Kelly, an Oklahoma product, walked by as we were taking the picture and rolled his eyes at the display.

“Oh, that’s right,” Albright said, “It’s football season again in Oklahoma, isn’t it?” He laughed.
