Chris Horton Follows Up On A Down Year

Posted by Matt Terl on March 23, 2010 – 4:36 pm

Entering last season, Chris Horton was one of the real bright spots from the Redskins’ 2008 draft class.

There was a lot of hope as 2009 began: that wide receivers Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas would break out, that tight end Fred Davis would make an impact, that Chad Rinehart would contribute along the offensive line. (And, of course, among that ever-vocal subset, the fond wish that Colt Brennan would become the gunslingin’ quarterback of the future.)

But Horton was the closest the Redskins had to a sure thing. The seventh-round pick had surprised in his rookie season, leading the team in interceptions, being named to the Pro Football Weekly Rookie All-Pro Team, earning multiple NFL honors, and was a highlight of a down year. In 2009, it was hoped, he’d develop further down the path to stardom.

It didn’t really happen. Read more »

Peter King On Sean Taylor Redux

Posted by Matt Terl on March 23, 2010 – 2:25 pm

I have no idea if SI.com writer Peter King saw my piece yesterday criticizing his comments about the late Sean Taylor, but it doesn’t really matter — MMQB reader “Tim of Washington” made King’s mailbag today with pretty much the same complaints, and King responded.

Redskins Sign Punter Josh Bidwell

Posted by Matt Terl on March 23, 2010 – 9:52 am

The Redskins today announced the signing of veteran punter Josh Bidwell. Bidwell is entering his 11th NFL season, having spent the the last six years with the Tampa Bay Bucs. And here’s what “entering his 11th NFL season means for practical purposes:

It means that:

  • He played in the Aloha Bowl, an event that hasn’t been held in this millennium. (That 1998 edition wound up being notably high-scoring.)
  • His highlights from that game are as far from HD as is possible while still being a moving picture.
  • His quarterback in that game was Akili Smith, a former first-round pick who hasn’t taken an NFL snap in almost a decade.

It also means that he’s had plenty of NFL experience. Bidwell holds a Buccaneers club record in gross punting average (44.0 avg.), punting attempts (419) and punts inside the 20-yard line (124). as well as the top four single-season gross punting averages in Buccaneers history (2005-08) and three of the top five single-season net punting averages in club history (2005, 2007-08).

(Stats courtesy of the Redskins press release.)

And he’s got an interesting backstory, too.
