    Hendricks 6’7″ and played in 215 consecutive games. He has some awful good words of wisdom there for keeping from getting hurt.

    Would love to see Richardson return punts, he will need a year to develop into a route runner. He should watch tons of Marvin Harrison tape. Awesome hands and route runner. Hoping for a better season for him than say tavon Austin’s rookie season

    I hope Dan Snyder is wearing his Redskins helmet 24/7 now that Mike Tyson has expressed his opinion on the name. Dan would look rather silly with one ear.
