The Name-My-Segment Poll Lumbers On

Posted by Matt Terl on September 2, 2009 – 6:28 pm

Yes, as you might’ve seen on today’s Redskins Nation, Larry Michael is determined to keep this name-my-segment thing going a little bit longer, in the desperate hope that Terls Gone Wild will somehow overcome a seemingly-insurmountable deficit.

Washington Post Redskins beat reporter Jason Reid thinks he’s got an idea of who one of those surprise guys will be: linebacker Darrel Young. Says Reid:

An undrafted rookie free agent from Villanova, Young has impressed at times on special teams. Several people I trust mentioned his name to me, saying he has received good internal reviews and is among the leading candidates for the final roster spot.

I assumed that this was the sort of news that Darrel — whose name is accented on the second syllable, by the way — had heard about as soon as it had been posted, that he was thrilled, and that his phone had been blowing up since Reid had posted.

“I had no idea,” Young said when I told him of Reid’s projection.
