Colt Brennan Sees Potential In A Familiar Situation

Posted by Matt Terl on March 19, 2010 – 3:01 pm

During his brief and relatively unformed Redskins career, quarterback Colt Brennan has been so popular among a devoted group of fans that it’s strange to think of him as hard luck case. But from a certain perspective, that’s exactly what he is.

Since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2008 draft, Brennan has had one impressive preseason, one disappointing preseason, and, in his words, “three pretty significant surgeries in a year and a half” that culminated with a stint on injured reserve last year.

This offseason, Brennan has been working hard to get himself back in shape, to prove that the flashes he showed in his first preseason weren’t just flukes. “I spent two months of my offseason down in Arizona at a facility called Fischer Sports,” Brennan says, “and basically invested two months, five to six days a week of just reshaping and rebuilding my body.”

It wasn’t how Brennan spent his first NFL offseason, but the results last preseason frustrated him so much that doing something like this seemed obvious. “What I’ve realized is that the off-season is definitely for you to relax, but it’s also for you to maintain and also grow physically,” he says, “you know, become stronger and faster, and that’s what I did this year. I acted like I was a top player in the NFL, as far as how I trained.”

The result of that effort is that Brennan is healthy, his hips work properly, and he’s in the best shape of his professional career. “I feel like this is going to be the first time that the NFL truly going to see what I am as a quarterback,” he says, “physically and mentally.”

The question is, does he have time for that to matter here in Washington.

Draft Day Party Details

Posted by Matt Terl on March 19, 2010 – 11:42 am


In case you haven’t already heard, the details of the Draft Day Party at FedExField have been announced.

It’s on Saturday, April 24th. The stadium gates open at 10:00 a.m. and stay open until 6:00 p.m., and there will be plenty to do:

  • Head coach Mike Shanahan will address the fans (around 4:00 p.m., draft schedule pemitting)
  • The first-round pick will be introduced (at approximately noon)
  • Test your passing and kicking skills on the field
  • Tour the Redskins’ locker room
  • Dress like a Redskins player–fun for kids!
  • Play in our game arcade
  • Take your picture with the Super Bowl trophies
  • Get active at the Redskins Play 60 youth fitness stations
  • The 2010 Redskins Cheerleaders make their debut
  • Performance by the Redskins Marching Band
  • Arrival of 2010 Redskins apparel at the Hall of Fame Store at FedExField

Yes, it’s the third day of the draft. Yes, thanks to the new scheduling, that’s rounds 4-7. But the point of the event isn’t actually to settle down and quietly watch the drama of the draft unfold. What it is is a completely free way to spend a day with fellow Redskins fans at FedExField. There are generally some terrific tailgates going on in the parking lot, the activities are a legitimately good time, and, really? How often do you get to be on the field at the stadium.

A Small-School Draft Day Prospect

Posted by Matt Terl on March 19, 2010 – 10:54 am

I get emailed a lot of suggestions that I’m asked to forward to ownership and the personnel department. Most of these are unprintable because of language and decency constraints, and almost all of the rest are uninteresting in the extreme. Every so often, though, I do get one of those rarest of beasts: an unsolicited email that shares something interesting that I didn’t know about.

Case in point: Elon University wide receiver Terrell Hudgins.

Now: I think that wide receiver is actually one of the lowest priorities for a Redskins team that certainly has a bunch of needs. I remain optimistic about Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas, still think Santana Moss has something left in the tank, and continue to be curious about Marko Mitchell. Still, an email with the all-caps subject line “ANOTHER JERRY RICE FROM A SMALL SCHOOL” is bound to catch the attention.

Especially when it turns out to be fairly accurate.

An inability to follow a ton of college football is (somewhat ironically) one of the downsides of this job, but I started to get the sense that Hudgins is kind of a big deal when I stumbled across this eight minute video profile of him.

And this ESPN U interview: Read more »
