Some reading to keep you busy during the long, never-ending day before tonight’s big game.
- Hey, did you know that the Redskins have a new head coach? And that he’s quirky and quotable and interesting and has led the team to an impressive start? Oh, you did? Huh. Well, if you want to read a mid-season profile on him anyhow, Barry Svrluga has one in the Post, and Ryan O’Halloran has one in the Times. And, in all seriousness, they’re both pretty interesting, even given the overwhelming volume of Zorn content we’ve all read in the last nine months or so.
- ESPN NFC East blogger Matt Moseley has a good profile of Santana Moss that offers some interesting insight into his motivation. Plus I love that Gary Clark called him out — it’s good to hear that Clark hasn’t settled down any since his playing days.
- Post Game Heroes is a very well-done blog (that I don’t link to nearly enough) whose staff is made up largely of Steelers backers and Redskins backers. So they’re in their glory as we head into tonight’s game. Pretty much anything at the site is worth reading, but I’m especially impressed with their detailed breakdown of the Redskins offense.
- And Tanner Cooley has a profile of punter Ryan Plackemeier, which should be especially useful for those of you who invested an entire offseason in learning about Durant Brooks and now need a crash course on the new guy.
