Here are a few quick hits to get you going on this Thursday morning:
--Deron Snyder of the Times has some sound advice for RG3--live right and erase any doubts.
--I’m very interested in seeing how it turns out with Pierre Garçon. Free agent wide receivers tend to have a high bust rate but those are frequently No. 1 types who fail to live up to their billing with new QB’s and new offensive systems. Garçon still has something to prove. But he did get paid and that can be a dangerous thing.
--Another day, another edition of The 53 is coming up. Today it’s the wide receivers and the bubble there is filled with some very familiar names. I still might change my mind between now and when I post the article.
--Also coming up today we’ll have an item or two coming out of the NFL rookie symposium in Ohio. While that is not a big media event like the combine or the draft, the combination of some reporters being there and the presence of a quote machine like Robert Griffin III has managed to keep the NFL in the news even during late June, the slowest of slow times in the NFL.
Also, it’s “only” going to get up to 95 today before triple digits on Friday, and the Nats scored double digits again last night. Today, Washington is focused on single digits, how the nine Supreme Court votes will come down on the health care decision. Finally, nobody out there was more on top of the Caps hiring of Adam Oates than CSN Washington’s Chuck Gormley.
