Sunday Night Quick Hits

Redskins Insider has something on Rams' center Jason Brown who accused Albert Haynesworth of tiring easily.

Funny thing is that even if Haynesworth gets tired there are three other solid DTs on the roster. With the trouble Haynesworth causes, it will only make it easier for the guy replacing him when he takes a breather.

Of course it was Hall of Fame weekend which stirs up memories from last year's Skins weekend featuring Art Monk and Darrell Green. Many Congrats to Rod Woodson, Ralph Wilson, Bruce Smith, Derrick Thomas, Bob Hayes, and Randall McDaniel.

Smith and Wilson's induction made it a distinctly Buffalo weekend this time around. Thomas and Hayes were inducted posthumously. Thomas was one of my favorite players growing up and I remember his death in a tragic accident.

Speaking of Buffalo I was up there this past week and attended a Bills practice complete with TO.

However, the Trent Edwards seemed content to throw screen passes in the flat. I don't know if he has the arm or playmaking abilities to make it in the NFL.

The o-line is also a concern, but if it can hold up, they have the weapons at receiver to succeed. Not many teams can boast a foursome of TO, Lee Evans, Roscoe Parrish, and Josh Reed.

Here's a great news and notes piece off of redskins.com. I know it's early, but it really looks like Brian Orakpo will be a force in the NFL.

The article also brings more bad news about Anthony Alridge. He can't hang onto the ball (5 fumbles in camp according to one source) and he can't stay healthy either. I guess he won't be the long-awaited homerun threat.

Here's an injury update from DC Examiner. It says Thomas didn't play today but I read earlier he did at full speed. Either way, he has shown marked improvement thus far. He needs to be healthy so ARE can move to the slot.
