The Pakulak Attack Is Back

Posted by Matt Terl on October 17, 2009 – 2:29 pm

Apparently chatting amiably with the media and bearing a passing resemblance to a character from Braveheart didn’t miraculously accelerate the healing process for Hunter Smith, because the team today re-signed Glenn Pakulak from the practice squad to the active roster and again released defensive end Renaldo Wynn.

It’s the same move the team made last week, and Pakulak responded with a 35.6 yard average on five punts. (Wynn responded by not being on the team, obviously, and by re-signing earlier this week.)

Assuming Smith’s assessment of his injury — “a three week injury,” he called it — is correct, this would be the last game as a Redskin for Pakulak.

In other news today, offensive lineman Chad Rinehart has been added to the injury report with a sore shoulder. Also, for everyone who has been clamoring for the whereabouts of Marko Mitchell, Jason Reid of the Washington Post posed the question on Friday. Read more »

Bring A Children's Book To Sunday's Game; Redskins Recommend Green Eggs And Ham. Again.

Posted by Matt Terl on October 17, 2009 – 12:29 pm

At this Sunday’s home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, there will be Redskins Read collection bins set up at every gate into FedExField. If you’re coming to the game, please consider bringing a new children’s book to donate; all books received will be redistributed to needy children throughout the DMV.

Last year at about this time, I went around the locker room asking players about their favorite children’s books. In the process, I learned that Fred Smoot was the only guy on the planet who had fond memories of a book called Sun Up, and virtually everyone else like Green Eggs and Ham.

This year, instead of thinking of something new, I figured I’d ask the same question to some of the guys I had missed last season.

Pretty much nothing had changed.

Saturday, October 17: Malcolm Kelly Does Not Have A Lot Of School Spirit

Posted by Matt Terl on October 17, 2009 – 8:40 am

It’s Red RIver Rivalry day, when the University of Texas Longhorn face off against the University of Oklahoma Sooners for control of the major water boundary between their respective states. Ordinarily, this would be of no concern to me whatsoever, as I spend college football Saturdays hoping (usually in vain) that the Maryland Terrapins can wrest control of the Potomac River from football powerhouse James Madison University.

But Redskins second-year wide receiver Malcolm Kelly is an Oklahoma guy, and first-round draft pick Brian Orakpo is one of several Texas products on the team, so I figured it would be worth seeing if they had any sort of friendly rivalry going today. For the most part, it wasn’t.
