Weekend Roundup: Running Back Drama

Of course, the hot topic for the next few weeks is going to be the running back situation now that Willie Parker has signed.

Dan Steinberg from the DC Sports Bog has a look at the Parker-Johnson-Portis trio by the numbers.

Parker's agent has announced the starting RB spot is an "open competition" according to Jason Reid at the Post.

However at ESPN's NFC East blog, Matt Mosley has some terrifying stats regarding this new trio of RBs (quite frankly, they are the worst stats ever).

Speedy Cal RB Jahvid Best will visit the 'Skins in the coming weeks before the draft. He would be an excellent option as a change-of-pace, third down back. However, I don't see how the 'Skins could justify a high pick on him with all their other needs.

Add another QB to the draft talk. Colt McCoy could be DC bound according to Jason La Canfora.

I like the enthusiasm I'm hearing from Deangelo Hall these days. Here's a good example of it from Matt Terl.

Out of all the WRs on the 'Skins roster I believe Devin Thomas has the brightest future.

Redskins Insider kept tabs on Eric Berry during his visit. His words regarding Sean Taylor were especially poignant.
