One week from today all of Redskins Nation, Washingtonians and Americans alike will join together to kick back, eat some barbecue and enjoy annual Fourth of July fireworks shows that only the United States of America can execute.
Now as anyone that lives in the DMV can attest to, the weather around here is fickle—very fickle.
At current check, the forecast for America’s birthday is calling for mid 80’s and a 40 percent chance for thunderstorms.
For Washington Redskins running back Tristan Davis, he has an interesting take on the chances our Nation’s Capital will have a rainy holiday—and any other summer day around here for that matter.

Just because the expected starters are not expected to play much in tonight’s preseason finale between the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it doesn’t mean you, as a fan, shouldn’t be paying close attention.
There’s lots to be excited about for tonight’s game, which will give coaches and fans alike a more in-depth chance to see what the team’s second- and third-teamers play like in a game setting.
Can rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is expected to start tonight for the Redskins, match his high-level preseason performance against the Chicago Bears? Will a running back like speedy Tristan Davis show the coaches that he, too, deserves a roster spot? Will tight end Logan Paulsen continued to impress with his improvement in the passing offense? Can Lorenzo Alexander, whose played several positions for the Redskins, get settled in as the backup at middle linebacker behind London Fletcher? And can rookie cornerback Richard Crawford continue his all-around stellar preseason by playing solid pass coverage and possibly getting a big punt return or two?
Here’s your shot to chime in:

The Washington Redskins enter the 2012 season with three running backs that showed flashes of excellence at various points in 2011.
But will the Redskins’ offense be more proficient with a running back-by-committee system, or with one premier back handling most of the rushing duties?
Quarterback Robert Griffin III prefers the latter.
