Sherm Smith Discusses The Chain Of Playcalling

Posted by Matt Terl on October 22, 2009 – 4:24 pm

After all the noise and commotion and drama of this week is over — all the arguments and radio shows and old players coming out of the woodwork — the Redskins are actually going to have to play a football game in which someone new will be calling the plays.

The chain of playcalling sounds simple enough on paper: consultant Sherm Lewis will be up in the coaches’ booth.

Thursday, October 22: Video Of Albert Haynesworth, Professional Sanitizer

I wrote yesterday about Albert Haynesworth‘s new role as official hand sanitizer of the Washington Redskins, mainly because it was the most upbeat thing that’s happened here in about a month. Aside from a couple of grainy iPhone photos, though, that post wasn’t what you’d call a rich multimedia experience.

Fortunately for all of us, Comcast SportsNet had an extra camera at Redskins Park, so — while everyone else was paying attention to whatever head coach Jim Zorn was talking about — they were able to capture this riveting footage of Albert Haynesworth maintaining a secure perimeter against disease.
