Bullet points: Keeping an eye on Morgan

A few quick Redskins hits to get your Thursday going:--Im not quite sure why so many people are concerned that fans being able to subscribe to see the all-22 view of NFL games is anything but a positive. Maybe its just because its the slowest of the slow periods for NFL news but these concerns that fans and media will know too much are just stupid.--SI.com picked a player to watch in training camp for each NFL team and they named Josh Morgan for the Redskins. I agree with the selection because the Redskins gave him a pretty big chunk of money over a short period of time (2 years12 million) and got a receiver who has never caught more than 52 passes or gained more than 700 yards in a season. Ill be looking at that in a little more depth in the next several days.--The 53, my roster projection series, will continue Friday with a look at the defensive line. I have no changes from last year as of now, but that could change as I flesh things out while writing the article.--Back to receivers, in case you missed it in the late afternoon on a holiday even on Tuesday, I wouldnt be surprised if when all is said and done the Redskins top receiver in 2012 ends up being not Morgan, not Pierre Garon but Leonard Hankerson.Also, the Nats are as hot as the weather. And I suppose one could look at today as the second Monday this week after the holiday yesterday. But, just think, tomorrow is your second Friday of the week.Days until: Rookies report 11; training camp 21; preseason opener @ Bills 25; final cuts 58; Redskins @ Saints 66; home opener vs. Bengals 80

New Redskins player makes major punt gaffe against Giants

New Redskins player makes major punt gaffe against Giants

The Redskins have a bunch of new players on the active roster.

Players who haven't been with the team for more than a few weeks, what with the number of injuries growing by the week.

Pete Robertson is one of those new players, having been with the active roster for all of two days before  the Thanksgiving matchup against the Giants.

Robertson was thrust into the spotlight on Thursday with a costly mistake early on.

Following a Tress Way punt that was looking to pin the Giants near the end zone, Robertson inexplicably picked up the ball at the 10-yard-line and ran it into the end zone for a touchback instead of allowing the ball to bounce toward the goal line.

To be fair, the Week 12 game against the Giants was the official NFL debut for the former Texas Tech linebacker.

Teammate Quinton Dunbar was not pleased with Robertson's mistake and gave him an earful following the play.

Welcome to the NFL, Pete!

Redskins-Giants Live Blog: Scores, Stats, Highlights, Updates, Analysis

We're back! 

If you've managed to make it through some turkey trotting, multiple rounds of food, several helpings of desert, a 3-hour parade and two football games without falling asleep - welcome to this week's Redskins Live Blog. 

Tonight the Redskins try and put the New Orleans fiasco from last Sunday behind them as they welcome the 2-8 New York Giants to FedEx Field. A win against this dysfunctional Giants team would go a long way towards reestablishing the Redskins in the hunt for one of the NFC's Wild Card spots. 

The teams just released their Inactive Lists, and the 'Skins will be without a few familiar names

There's also been an apperance from Young Ben McAdoo, which doesn't really have anything to do with the Redskins at all but is always worth pointing out. 

We'll be updating you all night with real-time scores, stats and analysis, so be sure to stop by while you stare at your phone during your Uncle's uncomfortable rant about the state of US politics.
