FedExField Goes HD, Part 7: Daktronics To Deliver HD Boards, CEI To Provide Infrastructure

Posted by Matt Terl on April 29, 2010 – 4:59 pm

If you were at FedExField for the Draft Day Party, this is what one of the endzones looked like — no longer completely gutted and beginning to show what it will one day be.

Today, the team announced that Daktronics had been selected to design, manufacture, and install the high resolution video boards at the stadium, while Communications Engineering, Inc. would be upgrading the infrastructure to handle the capabilities of the new hardware.

The team sent around a Video Board Fact Sheet that includes some Fun Facts about the Video Boards, which I’ll post after the jump. (NOTE: amount of “fun” received from these facts may be relative.) But before that, an answer to one of the questions I’ve heard most since the Draft Day Party: yes, there were some leftover Lite Brite pieces, and the folks at the Charitable Foundation should be getting in touch with people on the waitlist at any moment. So if you’re on the list, hope for a call in the next week or so.

Without any futher ado: Fun Facts and further details! Read more »

DeAngelo Hall On Being Tied To Guys In Your Draft Class

Posted by Matt Terl on April 29, 2010 – 1:43 pm

When the Redskins selected Trent Williams with their first-round draft pick last week, it meant that they were passing on Russell Okung, the other top-rated offensive tackle. This will no doubt prompt a multi-year analysis of if the Redskins got the right guy, and that’s something that makes DeAngelo Hall shake his head.

“I don’t necessarily think there’s a ‘got it right,'” Hall said. “Like they say, all it takes is one team to fall in love with you. That team falls in love with you, they’re in a position to get you before the next team that’s in love with the other guy, and that’s what gonna happen.”

Hall knows a little something about this situation. Read more »

The Redskins Four Latest Signings In Video Form

Posted by Matt Terl on April 29, 2010 – 11:01 am

The Redskins officially announced four signings this morning: veteran wide receivers Joey Galloway and Bobby Wade, and undrafted rookie free agents Logan Paulsen (a tight end out of UCLA) and Keiland WiIliams (a running back from LSU). Rather than just repost the press release — although I’ll do that too — I figured it might be nice to introduce the four new guys in video form.

Here, for example, is Wade, serving as “Globetrotter for the Night” with the Harlem Globetrotters. “This is a big game right here, this is a big point in the game,” he notes, as he prepares to make his dramatic leap from the stands to the basketball court. “You can expect some classic Bobby Wade, some big-play Wade.”

Practical experience that will no doubt come in handy during mini-camp.

Galloway’s best video — him flying with the Blue Angels when he was a Buccaneer — isn’t t embeddable, because the uploader doesn’t allow it. So here instead is an ESPN profile on Galloway as one of the three best receivers to come out of Ohio State. “You get, in my opinion, the best wide receiver in the NFL,” says a young Kirk Herbstreit, adding, “and I’m talking young wide receivers.”

He’s probably not considered a young wide receiver anymore, after fifteen NFL seasons. (In fact, Galloway started his stint in Tampa expected to play alongside a receiver who wound up not taking the field in a holdout. That receiver — Keenan McCardell — is now his position coach here.) Read more »
