There’s an old saying that suggests, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”
What people frequently forget is the second part, which says, “When in France, play American Football with the locals.”
This story comes directly from the Rainy Day Content file, and given today’s washout at the Redskins’ training camp practice, it seemed like an appropriate time to share.
Nearly a month ago while on his honeymoon, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III needed to rehab his knee, but was thousands of miles from the team facilities in Ashburn, Va.
So he did what any normal Pro Bowl quarterback would do: grabbed his knee brace and authentic NFL football and went in search of receivers. He found a very willing bunch in Les Dauphins de Nice and had a very Nice throw. (Sorry…sorry).

Well Redskins fans, for those of you who haven’t heard the news yet the team had to cancel this afternoon’s practice session due to torrential downpours and lightning.
But player and fan safety comes first in times like these. With waterlogged fields and an electrical sky, the team didn’t want to put anyone in harm’s way.
Inside however, Mike Shanahan addressed the media for the first time since leaving Nashville after the team’s 22-21 victory over the Titans on Thursday night.
Here a summary of what transpired during his press conference:

Enough with hearing what NFL “experts” want to say on the tube, it’s your turn to predict the upcoming season Redskins fans!
We asked you the same question during the offseason, but with so much happening in such a short span (trust me I’d know with the amount of news then compared to now) we want to ask the question now that football is back. Go to Redskins.com’s homepage at the very bottom and you’ll see the poll presented by Acela.
As seen on Thursday night even without a good chunk of the starters taking the field, the Redskins are going to be a team others don’t want to see on the schedule.
With Kirk Cousins leading the way to start the game, and Pat White showing everyone that he hasn’t missed a (sprinting) step, the offense clicked on all cylinders. There were a few drops from the wide receivers here and there, but those are easily correctable mistakes. Roy Helu Jr. looked fully healed and ready to add just another element to a potent offense.
On the defensive side, well there are still a lot of moving parts in terms of position depth and returns from injury, but don’t discredit their opportunistic mentality. Give them a little and they’ll take a whole lot more. Plus we have only seen the three rookies in limited preseason action.
What that said, here’s some second level nuggest for all you stat geeks about each matchup thanks to the Redskins Public Relations Department that you should bear in mind when making your choice:

Redskins fans, I’m really struggling this morning trying to remember just what exactly Ryan Kerrigan looks like. Maybe it’s because he spent a few days in Tennessee or maybe it’s due to a slow Saturday morning so far, but I’ve been trying to evoke my memory bank and have repeatedly come up blank.
Well if I could just get the facial recognition aspect back, I’d interview him later today and let him know that Redskins fans loved when he got around Titans rookie guard Chance Warmack for a sack. Even then though, I might not recognize him with that visor he rocks on game days.
Okay, so the gig is up—I obviously do remember Kerrigan and everything he’s done in his short career so far. But for one of his biggest fans, Danielle—well she did not. Stupid bifocals.
Anyway, Danielle relocated from Carytown to the Bon Secours Training Center earlier this week and thanks to his No. 91 practice jersey, and their previous encounter, she had no problem remembering him.

Behind all of the excitement of the first training camp in Richmond, was the opening week’s news that defensive lineman Adam Carriker will start the season on the PUP list and Jarvis Jenkins will miss the first quarter of the season due to suspension.
Jenkins, who started the 14 games last season after replacing Carriker, was widely speculated by Redskins fans and NFL pundits alike to have a breakout campaign. While he can still certainly wreak havoc upon his return Week 6 against the Cowboys (Week 5 is a bye), he’ll be sidelined to start.
After the news broke that Jenkins would indeed be sitting the first four games of the season, Redskins.com posted a poll asking fans which player will start at left defensive end in his absence between Kedric Golston, Chris Baker and Phillip Merling.
Here are the results:
