Your Starting Right Guard: Chad Rinehart

Posted by Matt Terl on November 12, 2009 – 4:10 pm

This is what I thought I saw during yesterday’s practice, and it was confirmed today: Chad Rinehart will be stepping in at right guard in relief of Will Montgomery. There were rumors of this move last week; this week it’s actually happening.

Rinehart spoke briefly to the media today, and — like Levi Jones — said more or less what you’d expect. Let’s see if he hits all the same categories Jones did. Read more »

Yes, The Redskins Players Are Aware Of The Team's Problems

Posted by Matt Terl on September 28, 2009 – 2:19 pm

If you believe that admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, then today’s open locker room was absolutely full of recovering football players. For just about every problem that has been brought up about the loss to the Lions and the team’s play in general, there was a player somewhere explaining to a microphone just how aware they were of that problem.

On The Field For Practice – Good News and Bad News

Posted by Matt Terl on September 25, 2009 – 2:16 pm

Practice today was a relatively light affair, shorts and shells in pleasant weather, and focused mainly on the red zone, which should make people happy. Jason Campbell got a lot of compliments from Jim Zorn for making good reads, which is always reassuring for me to hear on the sidelines, and the team seemed as loose and focused as they have at any point in this bizarre week.

But the real stories of practice came afterward, in the form of some good news and some bad news. Here’s a picture to help you guess the good news.

No, Colt Brennan is not going to be playing quarterback (although he is back in the facility and in generally good spirits.)

The good news is that Chad Rinehart will be starting at right guard. Zorn walked to the podium and said “The Rhino!”, thus preempting Washington Post reporter Jason Reid, who had been extremely excited to ask if it would be The Thrill (Will Montgomery) or The Rhino.

Monday, February 9: Redskins Make Burgers On TV

Posted by Matt Terl on February 9, 2009 – 11:32 am

If you are a dedicated viewer of the NFL Players Association‘s reality TV series Helmets Off, but you DVRed this week’s episode and wish to remain spoiler-free as to who wins the Redskins linemen’s burger competition that aired this past Saturday, STOP READING NOW.

If you’re more like me and had never heard of Helmets Off, let alone the Redskins linemen’s burger competition, here’s some quick background: the show is in its fifth season, and is described by the NFLPA’s marketing materials as “a series of reality television shows featuring some of the most talented stars in the National Football League.” The show airs on Comcast SportsNet (or Fox Sports, depending on where you live), so check their website for airdates and times.

Anyhow, the first I heard of the burger contest — held at the Good Stuff Eatery in DC — was a month or so back, when the winner shouted across the locker room, “Hey, I won the burger contest!” Read more »
