Bruce Allen Discusses Uniforms Some More

Posted by Matt Terl on February 11, 2010 – 3:01 pm

The last time Bruce Allen was asked about the Redskins uniforms, he was unable to finish his answers to any of the questions. Yesterday, Allen was a guest on Redskins Nation with Larry Michael. The two talked about the snow (“Redskins weather,” Allen called it), the value of the Scouting Combine, getting read for free agency, and more, and you can see all of that in the video here.


But Allen also got a second chance to talk about the rumors of an offseason uniform change, and Larry Michael — unlike Steve Czaban — actually let him answer. Here’s how it went (italics and boldface added by me):

Offseason Speculation Roundup

Posted by Matt Terl on February 11, 2010 – 2:04 pm

A look at some of what’s being suggested out there for the Redskins as the offseason officially kicks into gear:

DC Pro Sports Report continues to aggregate mock drafts to find the consensus picks for each spot, and right now the leading pick for the Redskins at four is quarterback Sam Bradford. This, based on my previous informal research on the subject, would not be an exceedingly popular choice, but DCPSR does offer this nugget for the “must draft O-line” contingent:

Trend: Keep an eye on Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung here. More mocks are beginning to project the big tackle at No. 4.

Meanwhile, what would drafting Bradford actually mean? Over at Rotoworld.com, Evan Silva has a pretty comprehensive look at the available QBs in this year’s draft. Here’s what he’s got to say about Bradford: Read more »

Snow At Redskins Park

Posted by Matt Terl on February 11, 2010 – 12:47 pm

Those of you who don’t live in the greater D.C. metro area may have gathered that we had a little snow around here. (I’m assuming that those of you who do live in the area noticed.) Well, one of my favorite pastimes on snowy days around here is watching the local news frantically cover the snowstorm.

There’s not really much for them to say: it snowed. Driving is dumb. People are digging out. And yet they say it over and over and over again, and even send people out into the snow for the sole purposes of saying, “Yep, it snowed.” And I sit, and I watch them, and I rhetorically ask exactly what is gained by sending reporters outside, and then I feel smug.

Today I got my karmic reward for mocking those people: Larry Michael suggested that I go out with a Redskins Broadcast Network camera and “cover” the snow at Redskins Park. So here I am, pointing out that it snowed, that driving was difficult, and that the hard-working grounds crew at Redskins Park is digging out. So much for feeling smug.

If you’re in the area and completely fascinated, you can see a bit more of this on Redskins Nation tonight on Comcast SportsNet at 6:00 and 10:30.

Thanks to Jordan Beane of RBN for camerawork, production, and most of the good ideas in this thing. Read more »

Thursday, February 11: The Elusive Kyle Shanahan/Mike Williams Photo

Posted by Matt Terl on February 11, 2010 – 10:49 am

A few weeks back I posted a brief interview with offensive lineman Mike Williams about the possibility of having his old college teammate as his offensive coordinator. I noted at the time that I hadn’t been able to track down a photo of the two of them together.

Well, thanks to the excellent media relations department at the University of Texas, that’s no longer the case.

That’s big Mike Williams wearing number 63, of course. And Kyle Shanahan was #87, a wide receiver who played in 24 games at Texas and caught 14 passes for 127 yards, but was called “a student of the game” by his offensive coordinator even then. (And he also, according to the Personal section of his Longhorns media guide bio, “aspires to be a coach himself.” Mission accomplished.)

More details on Shanahan’s college career: Read more »
