  1. Season 5 of The Ranch dropped today on Netflix.
  2. First of all, it’s Moderator. A monitor is most likely what you’re reading this on. And secondly, I’m pretty sure I’ve told you before that Tailgate probably wasn’t for you.
  3. For Immediate Release June 14, 2018 REDSKINS SIGN T GERON CHRISTIAN SR. LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have made the following roster move: The Redskins signed the following draft pick: ROUND (PICK) PLAYER SCHOOL 3 (74) T Geron Christian Sr. Louisville With Christian’s signing, the Redskins now have all eight members of their 2018 draft class under contract.
  4. June 13, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On the skirmish between two players: “I did not see it. I don’t think until I see it on video, which I don’t think anybody got it on video, I don’t know what happened... He [Defensive Line Coach Jim Tomsula] just said they were messing around a little bit.” On how he feels about the team’s progression during the last four weeks: “I think it went great. Like I said the other day, the most important thing in my mind was to get these guys in great physical shape and I think Chad Englehart and his staff did a great job. And then Larry Hess and the trainers did a good job getting the guys back, trying to get them back to full health, the guys that were injured. And then I wanted them to learn the system, try to get as much as we could installed. We did a great job of that I think so that when they come to training camp they are ready to roll. And then of course just getting to know each other so they can learn to play together and work together as a team. I think we accomplished what I set out to accomplish.” On if the competitive nature of practices is a testament to the team’s depth: “I think so. I think you’re talking about reps and reps are very, very important, and when people are trying to steal reps from one another, people take it personally and some things happen from time to time. But that’s the way it is from competitive-type guys.” On if he purposefully involved the third-string more today: “Yeah, we were back inside on the turf and I kind of haven’t given the threes a lot of reps, especially with Kevin Hogan. I wanted to give him a big lion’s share of the reps today and see what those guys can do so they felt confident coming into training camp with the knowledge that they have and be ready to perform.” On QB Kevin Hogan: “He’s done good. I like Kevin. He’s a smart kid and he’s got some deceiving escape ability to him. He can run a little bit. We saw one today, he popped out of there for about a 20-yard gain. I like where he’s at. It’s hard for those No. 3 guys to get the reps and for them to show what they really can do on a limited basis, but as far as being attentive and being a good quarterback in the meetings rooms and all that stuff, he’s been very, very good.” On the progression of the undrafted rookies: “Cam [Sims] has stood out at wide receiver. I think [Danny] Johnson stood out at corner. They have done some really good things. We have got a number of other guys that are trying to take advantage of a little bit of the reps the way they have. I think this progression for these guys, they came in a little bit late, obviously we had to wait for them after the draft, and then the limited amount of reps that they did have, some took more advantage than others but we’re not discounting anybody. Once training camp starts, they’re going to get more and more, especially when the Jets come. We’ll have more and more opportunities for them to succeed. Preseason game one, two and three, they are going to get more and more reps to shine when the lights are on and it’s live, but I have been impressed with a lot of the guys, mentally and physically.” On Passing Game Coordinator Kevin O’Connell working with such an experienced group of quarterbacks: “Kevin’s been great. I wanted a guy that would help coach quarterbacks that had a little bit of a different background. He was with New England as a player a little bit, he was with Chip Kelly, and now he’s brought some of that knowledge here. So it’s good to have a different set of ideas. He’s done a good job of embracing ours but also adding some new concepts to our system that we already have, and quarterbacks all look up to him despite his age. Very smart, articulate, obviously. All his points are well-thought-out and make sense, which is important, and he does a good job in that room.” On his message to the team prior to training camp: “Progress. Progress, progress, progress. We can’t ‘de-gress.’ I think they’ve put themselves in a great situation to hit training camp in great shape. What we don’t want to have happen is these guys to go to the beach and drink a bunch of iced teas, whatever they do, and Cokes, and eat popcorn, and doughnuts and gain 20 pounds. Then we have to start all over, strip them back down and start all over. I don’t think that’ll happen. Everybody understands. I think the beauty of this is everybody understands we have more depth here. We’re not going to really have time for you to get in shape. You better come in shape and compete for your job and compete to make this roster. Otherwise, we have a lot of guys here that can play, and I think they see that.” On training camp practice times: “10:00 in the morning, I wanted a consistent time in the morning, number one. Number two, after practice, I want to have time to really get the nutrients back in their body, get the water, drink plenty of water and hydrate, really, is the big thing. And if we can avoid a little bit of the heat, maybe, is good. But mainly, it’s about hydration [and] getting off their feet for more time.” On when DL Stacy McGee sustained his groin injury: “He had it a couple weeks ago. I don’t know what happened. He just did something, so he had a procedure done and hopefully he will be ready for training camp. We’ll see. I don’t have the exact timetable on him, yet. He’s in there now.” On hosting joint practices with New York Jets: “It’ll be good. It’ll be good to evaluate the young kids, especially, and also get our veteran guys, see how we handle a different scheme, so to speak, different bodies. A lot of times, you’re going against one another, sometimes when it gets that late in training camp, you start to see the buddy system going a little bit. ‘I won’t hurt you, you don’t hurt me,’ but now you’re going against another group of guys trying to make their roster. I think the competitive nature will make practice a little bit better and challenge them a little bit more, so it’ll be good. We’ve just got to tone it down, so nothing happens like it happened against Houston a couple years ago, but I think Coach [Todd] Bowles, myself, we have a good understanding of what we’re looking for and how to deal with it.”

  6. June 12, 2018 Head Coach Jay Gruden On today’s practice: “It went good. You know, we’re coming to the end of the offseason program here, and this is just the extension of it, and I think we’re in a good place mentally and physically for the most part. Guys are working hard, have a couple more days left and hopefully we end on a high note.” On Defensive Backs Coach Torrian Gray: “He’s done great, he really has. I think he’s got the system down. I think it’s important to keep the staff around here because I think the more comfortable he is, the better he is. That’s the case for everybody, quite frankly. He’s a good communicator, does a great job with the safeties and corners – [Assistant Defensive Backs Coach] James Rowe with him. They are a good partnership over there and handle the room extremely well.” On QB Alex Smith’s growth this offseason: “I think we are all just trying to get him as comfortable as we can and it’s just a matter of him getting used to the terminology, getting used to the players around him, how we call plays, all that stuff. He’s a veteran guy. He’s been there, done that. About every kind of passing scheme concept he’s seen or done, run concept he’s seen or done in his career with both Coach [Jim] Harbaugh and obviously with Coach [Andy] Reid, so not a lot I can throw at him that he hasn’t done or tried. It’s just a matter of getting on the same page – what we call things, how we like to tag certain coverages, progressions, all that good stuff – so, I’ve been very impressed with him as player and obviously as a person.” On if he anticipates any issues with injured players being available for training camp: “We’re very positive in their recovery right now. They’ve all worked extremely hard. Trent [Williams] came in here and has shown great progress, great strength. So I don’t see any reason why these guys won’t be ready for training camp. It’s a matter of how much we throw at them early in training camp. We might hold them back early in training camp, but for the most part, I think Ty [Nsekhe], T.J. [Clemmings], Jordan [Reed], Chris [Thompson], Trent, those guys are showing great progress and we have full anticipation they’ll be ready for Week 1.” On DL Stacy McGee and WR Brian Quick: “Stacy McGee has had an issue, so he was getting checked out and had a little surgery on his groin. Quick missed for personal reasons.” On how long it takes a veteran quarterback like Alex Smith to get comfortable with a new system and if he just needs to “get it down by midseason”: “He has got to get it down by the first game. So, I think he is already close to having it down for the most part. Each game plan is going to change with different concepts depending on who we play from time to time. But he needs to get it down and he will get it down. That’s why we got him here. That’s why we wanted to get a veteran quarterback here that can adjust to different schemes and alert on the fly. One thing about Alex, he is the smartest guy I have ever been around, without a doubt, and he is in great shape. He can move around and he can handle a lot of different things. We are not in here to build the team around him, the team is built and he has to lead it like right now. This isn’t a two- or three-year process. This is a one-year process and we have got to win right away.” On details that will make the run defense successful: “Stopping the run, it’s a team thing. It’s an 11-man deal. You have got to be in your right gap. You can’t abort your gap and leave somebody on an island or what have you. So, it’s up to the defensive line to stay in their gap, the linebackers will play off of them and obviously the safeties have to be a part of it and sometimes when the safeties get blocked by the receivers, then the corners have got to come and crack-replace. So, it’s a total team thing on defense. Everybody has got to run to the ball and every once in a while, somebody’s going to get a hit, but we have to limit the damage and the guys have got to wrap tackle and make good, sound tackles and limit the damage and live to fight another day. I think getting the guys healthy, getting Zach Brown back out here and Mason Foster with him, [Martrell] Spaight is a veteran guy, [Zach] Vigil is a veteran guy, Josh Harvey-Clemons playing the same defense. Adding Shaun Dion [Hamilton], I think we have got a great chance for that front seven to be very, very good. Secondary-wise, getting Montae [Nicholson] back 100 percent, he’s a great tackler. Obviously D.J. [Swearinger] can play multiple spots. Josh Norman is one of the better corners that can tackle. So we feel good about where we are and now it’s a matter of them playing together with [Daron] Payne now in there, and obviously the other young fellows, [Quinton] Dunbar, maybe Fabian [Moreau] at the other corner.” On how the team will approach the new kickoff and lowering-the-helmet rules: “I haven’t seen anything written on paper yet [about the lowering-the-helmet rule]. We obviously understand we want to take the head out of the game as best we can. We don’t want to use it as a weapon either offensively or defensively, so that’s something we are going to continue to try to teach. We don’t do a lot of live sessions in practice anyway, so a lot of that will come throughout training camp and hopefully we will have videos to show the players on what not to do, I guess. As far as the kickoff rule is concerned, we are just going to try different things, get it on tape and look at it and try to make certain adjustments. It’s new to everybody around the league and I don’t know what to expect. I don’t know if teams are going to try to get more touchbacks kicking off or try to let the guys return it, so it will be interesting to see and it will play out. I’m sure by Week 1 or Week 2, coaches will have a better understanding of it.” On if he feels further ahead at this point in the year because of Smith’s intelligence: “I have got to be careful too. I sometimes get the script of plays for practice and I kind of go crazy with different formations and stuff like that. I just have got to make sure I don’t get ahead of myself, but it’s never an issue. I spit out the plays and he does a great job repeating them and executing them so he’s somebody that can handle a lot of things, like I said. So, we will just have to wait and see. I think getting to know his players is probably more important. He’s going to handle the offense fine. The terminology and all that stuff is fine. I think just getting to know the players and what they can do and adjusting to those guys -- especially Jordan [Reed] who hasn’t practiced yet and Chris Thompson hadn’t practiced yet – but getting to know Paul Richardson for the first time, Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, the rest of them, Brian Quick wasn’t here today, but that’s the big thing. [Also] Mo Harris.” On the difficulty of practicing two-minute and third down situations while learning a new system: “It’s just going faster. Two minutes? Easy. We have a set of core plays for two-minute and they can change week-to-week depending on who we are playing, but it’s just a matter of getting the people up to the line, making sure everybody is set before he snaps it, but he handles that great. He knows situations as good as anybody. He knows when he can’t take a sack and get out of bounds when he has to, hurry up to the line, spike it, whatever he needs to do. He’s been in all of those situations so that’s no issue. Third down is just a matter of whether we are going to huddle or not and getting the team ready to roll or get a protection set for the back or the line, trumping everything and making the right call. He can handle all of that. I’m not worried about that.” On time changes for training camp: “Morning, I want to give them a full day to recover. I kind of have been doing a little research here and I think we practice in the morning, we are off the field around noon and they get a nice lunch. We will meet and do some install and come back and have our walkthrough, then go back and meet and watch practice and the walkthrough. So, I think to give that full time for recovery, so they can drink a lot of fluids and take care of their bodies is important. When the Jets come, we are going to practice same time – 1:30 every day. But let these guys know, ‘Hey, we are going to get up, get yourself a cup of coffee and get ready to roll for practice,’ I think is important. Get them on a set schedule, give them a chance to recover each and every day.” On what the team has accomplished this offseason: “I think, one, that’s the most important thing to me for OTAs is getting them in shape in the weight room, obviously out there on the field running. And then, two, we have to get them mentally sharp and teach them our system. And then at the end once we were able to practice, players get to know one another. I think, like we mentioned, Alex Smith getting to know Paul Richardson and our receivers, and our new offensive linemen trying to work different spots, our new defensive linemen, the rookies – [Daron] Payne, obviously Shaun Dion [Hamilton] – getting those guys up to speed, getting our left tackle, right tackle – [Geron] Christian – up to speed. So I think it’s just a matter of A) you want to get them in shape, you want them to get to know each other, and then obviously C) you’ve got to have them learn as much as you can in these few days so when they come back to training camp, we don’t have to start from, ‘OK, this is double right.’ We can jump into our system and install fast and play fast.” On if he feels this is the best spot he’s been in at this time of the year during his tenure in Washington: “I’m always confident, really, but I feel really good. I think from a draft perspective, Payne is everything that I thought he was. Derrius Guice is everything I thought he was and more. He’s a lot faster than I thought. He plays faster – explosive. Christian adds great depth to the offensive line. Shaun Dion, like I mentioned, great depth at the linebacker position, could eventually be a starter, who knows? The rest of the guys are excellent. And then our free agent acquisitions, Paul Richardson is faster than I even thought on tape. Excellent free agent signing. So I feel great about where we are to add those new guys in with the veteran pieces that we already have. Very, very confident, very happy with what we have here.” On how much Smith’s “presence” as a quarterback matters: “It matters. Confidence is very, very important and presence, like you say, is important. It gives other players confidence, and the whole job a quarterback has is obviously getting the most out of the people around you. That’s what I think he does as good as anybody. He’ll get the most out of the tight ends. He’ll get the most out of the backs. He’ll get the most out of the receivers and offensive line because they’re going to want to play for him and they’re going to feel confident that he’s going to make something happen in a positive way or at least give it everything he’s got and take responsibility if something doesn’t work out. Just a great leader-type guy and a good person, good player, that players all seem to react well to and play well with. Obviously we haven’t played a game yet, so we still have a lot of work to do before then, but just from a mental makeup, the physical makeup of the person, obviously top-notch.” On the growth he expects in LB Zach Brown’s second season in Washington: “I think Zach Brown physically, when you look at him, he’s as gifted a linebacker as there is, really. He can run, he can hit, and all that stuff. I think learning a new defense, there were some times where we were out of place – and not just him, but whoever – the defense wasn’t quite in sync. I think him being in his second year with his athletic ability, adding Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen in the middle in front of him with Matt Ioannidis and Ziggy [Hood], whoever else is in there with [Ryan] Kerrigan and Preston [Smith], I think it’s going to make him all the more freer to roam and play fast. So, first year, you know, like I said, last year we went 7-9, I can’t really say, ‘Hey, anybody played all-star-type level.’ But I think he was leading the league in tackles there for a little while because of his speed and I think he can play a lot better.”
  7. For Immediate Release June 12, 2018 REDSKINS HONOR 1987 REPLACEMENT PLAYERS WITH SUPER BOWL RINGS MEDIA NOTICE: More than 10 minutes of B-Roll footage of the Super Bowl rings being produced is available for download at the following link, courtesy of Baron Rings: LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins honored replacement players from the team’s 1987 squad with Super Bowl rings in a ceremony at Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park on Tuesday. Charley Casserly, who served as the Redskins’ Assistant General Manager in 1987 and helped build the replacement squad, hosted the event and welcomed more than 25 players in attendance. The event culminated with the surprise appearance of 1987 Super Bowl champions Doug Williams, Gary Clark and Dexter Manley, who joined the replacement players for a group photo. The contributions of the replacement players were previously highlighted in the documentary Year of the Scab, produced by Ten100 in association with Leftfield Pictures (an ITV America company). The film, directed by John Dorsey, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in the spring of 2017 and aired as part of ESPN’s “30 for 30” series in September. To properly honor the players for their role in the team’s 1987 championship season, the Redskins worked closely with the documentary’s director, Dorsey, and a number of key partners. Baron Rings, represented by President Peter Kanis, furnished the rings, while diamonds were provided by Uptown Diamond, represented by Principal Rick Antona. “The 3-0 record of the Redskins replacement players was part of the remarkable success of the 1987 Washington Redskins,” Owner Dan Snyder said in a statement in March announcing the ceremony. “Their contributions are part of Redskins history and represent an integral reason why a Lombardi Trophy from the 1987 campaign resides in our facility today. Thanks in part to the generosity of our partners on this project, we are happy to honor these players for their role in that World Championship.” The Virginia General Assembly also officially commended the replacement members of the 1987 team in March with House Joint Resolution No. 151, expressing “the General Assembly’s admiration for their determination, hard work, and incredible achievements.” Quarterback Tony Robinson and defensive lineman Anthony Sagnella represented the replacement players during the passing of the resolution in Richmond. In Washington’s first game with replacement players, the Redskins defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 28-21, as wide receiver Anthony Allen finished the day with seven catches and a single-game franchise record 225 yards. The next week, the Redskins defeated the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants, 38-12. Despite the strike ending four days later on Oct. 15, 1987, the Redskins’ replacement players played and defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 13-7, in a Monday Night Football matchup despite the return of multiple starters for Dallas. The three victories earned by the replacement players helped propel the Redskins to an 11-4 regular season record and an NFC East title. The Redskins would go on to defeat the Denver Broncos, 42-10, in Super Bowl XXII to earn the team’s second Super Bowl title and fourth World Championship.

Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with 11 others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snyder since 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
