The Daily Redskin 1.14.10

In an ongoing attempt to kick myself in the arse and post on a more regular basis, I'm trying something new ... a daily post with quick read-and-reacts to any and all Redskins news stories, discussions, random thoughts, etc., that grab my attention.

I'll still hit you with the occasional "formal" piece, because, as amazing as it still seems to me, some people seem to like them.  Just adding this to the mix ... we'll see where it leads. 

Nothing deep here, no lengthy treatises (which alone will make it new) ... and I will add additional items as the day progresses if the mood/material should strike. 

So ... to establish the "nothing deep" mantra straight off:

Per those serious-reporter types over at PFT:

The Denver-to-Washington pipeline is open for business.

Let it be known: Center/guard Kory Lichtensteiger was the first signing of the Shanahan era. A fourth-round pick by Shanahan in 2008, the lightweight lineman was cut by Denver, then Minnesota last year.

● "... the lightweight lineman," Gracie? Hmm. If we didn't know better, we might almost think that sounds editorial.

● Given the State of the Offensive Line around these parts for longer than most of us care to remember, I bet a buck the only human being with measurable rooting interest in the Washington Redskins not hoping young Mr. Lichtenseiger becomes a success is Larry Michael.

Think about it.

6'3" 295 is light?!?! Someone let my wife in on that one.

That's what I'm sayin'.

And if his listed weight is 295, you know his actual playing weight is closer to 315. Curious what PFT's agenda was for throwing "lightweight" around.
