Someone Thinks The Redskins Have The Best Offensive Line In The NFC East

Posted by Matt Terl on June 29, 2010 – 5:05 pm

The offseason is a time of unbridled joy and optimism. Everyone knows this. June is the month when all the offseason moves are going to work, all the draft picks are going to pan out, and every new coach is an innovative genius.

It’s just that usually, that sort of optimism is reserved for a team’s fans, not the commentators on a national radio show. But on The Sirius Blitz, which airs from 11a-3p ET on Sirius NFL Radio (Channel 124), Adam Schein and Jim Miller got more enthusiastic about the Redskins’ offseason moves than even the most optimistic Redskins die-hards I’ve heard.

Who The Heck Is Richard Bartel?

Posted by Matt Terl on June 29, 2010 – 10:42 am

Saying that Richard Bartel is the forgotten man of the Redskins is not entirely accurate — becoming a forgotten man requires that people be aware of your existence in the first place. Bartel was signed the day before Thanksgiving last year to zero fanfare and even less notice. I tweeted about it, then mentioned the tweet in a bullet point on a short blog post on Black Friday. Not exactly a warm Redskins Blog welcome. I don’t think anyone came out and said it, but I’m guessing that at the time, most fans expected Bartel to be summarily dropped as soon as fan-favorite QB Colt Brennan came off Injured Reserve.

But that didn’t happen. And Bartel also stuck around after the new coaching staff arrived. And after the draft, and after the undrafted free agent tryout period, and through mini-camps and OTAs, and now it certainly looks like he’ll be here for training camp — a training camp, it should be noted, where head coach Mike Shanahan has been talking up the importance of competition.

So it seemed like it was finally time to catch up with Bartel and ask him, point blank, who he is.
