Offseason over; preseason begins

Like the Sun crossing the Equator, we've changed seasons to "football" from "waiting for football."

Well, not quite; but Redskins training camp is open so the offseason is gone, so we can get some real football news.

Over at Hog Heaven, check out Redskins: Five Questions for the Offense. has a story about the second year of the "Joe CEO" experiment. "This Year, Onus is on the Assistants" points big, bloody fingers at Gregg Williams and Al Saunders for their play-calling last season. With Gibbs as the "executive" leaving on field operations to his coordinators, both these guys must do better. That word onus is close to anus. That's how Williams and Saunders will look with a repeat 5-11 season. has 5 things to look for as the season begins. It's worth a look.

Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog has comments up from the first day of training camp. Read the 7/27/07 posts.

The Redskins Report has The Friday Round-up, with some thoughts on Corey Bradford, signed by the Redskins yesterday, and Simeon Rice. You know the drill: aging star; Redskins free agent aggression; Daniel Snyder interest, yada, yada, yada.

I'm a great admirer of Ben Folsum's writing. He posted an anti-dog-fighting editorial on The Curly R, relieving me of my Vick duties for the day. Whew.

The season tix arrived this week. Oh yeah. The season is here.
