A few quick hits to get your Thursday morning going:--Ryan Kerrigan, who was the Redskins defensive iron man last year as he played all 1,056 defensive snaps, talked to the local paper in his college town of West Lafayette, Indiana. He downplayed not missing a play, saying Its my job . . . Thats how I want it to be. Kerrigans goal in 2012? I have to be more consistent.--The more I look at the Redskins numbers in 2011 the more I think that they were undone by their minus-14 turnover differential. They were only outgained by 50 yards over the course of the season (gained 5,387, allowed 5,437) but they were outscored by 79 points (288 scored, 367 allowed). A team that is about even in net yardage will usually be about even in net points if the turnovers are about even. But the 24 interceptions thrown by Rex Grossman and John Beck and the 11 fumbles lost did them in.--Although the Redskins have kicked the tires on former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon it would be surprising if they pulled the trigger and gave up what probably would be a mid-round pick in 2013 to take him in todays supplemental draft. There was a report out there that Robert Griffin III was pushing the organization to take Gordon. Whether thats true or not, Griffin is the rookie QB, not the GM. I think Mike Shanahan will go into the season with the receivers he has.--I predicted that the secondary will undergo some major upheaval in my article yesterday. I have them releasing three players who were on the roster for most of last year including two who saw a substantial amount of playing time, and a draft pick.Days until: Rookies report 4; training camp 14; preseason opener @ Bills; RG3 vs. Luck at FedEx Field 44; final cuts 51; Redskins @ Saints 59; home opener vs Bengals 73

Jay Gruden is many things, including honest, witty, one of the greatest Arena League quarterbacks in the history of the universe and, as of June 18, the longest-tenured head coach of a major D.C. sports team.
With the Capitals and Barry Trotz parting ways, Gruden is now officially the area's most experienced boss (while Gruden was actually hired a few months before Trotz back in 2014, they both have led their teams through four seasons up to this point, which is the number that matters here).
Scott Brooks, meanwhile, has overseen the Wizards for two campaigns, while Nats manager Dave Martinez is in the middle of his first year at the helm.
This designation will pair nicely with the fact that Gruden will also be the first 'Skins headman to hold his job into a fifth season in the Dan Snyder era. You don't need to make plans to visit his statue yet, of course, but this is some uncharted territory the 51-year-old is currently hanging out in.
Now, his overall record of 28-35-1 certainly needs work, or else he'll be in danger of handing the longest-tenured distinction over to Brooks. However, Gruden does deserve credit for bringing an amount of stability to the Burgundy and Gold, a franchise that is usually as stable as Metro's Wi-Fi connection.
So, with all due respect to DC United's Ben Olsen, the Kastles' Murphy Jensen and whatever legend is in charge of your kid's dynastic flag football team, when you think of the man who's been roaming the sidelines longer than anyone else in D.C., be sure to think of this man and only this man:
