Our partner in leading the charge for D.C. sports led a round table with the area’s leading reporters.
There is no doubt that the most popular feature article at DC Pro Sports Report is the Redskins Round Table. It’s something you don’t get anywhere else and we’re proud to bring it to you. The only complaints we ever get about Redskins Round Table is that it’s not long enough and doesn’t happen more often. As always we went to the most insightful sources of Redskins knowledge to find out what’s going with everyone’s favorite local football team.
It’s preseason and that means people want to know who is making the team, who isn’t and how are things progressing for the start of the regular season. Some of the biggest questions on this Redskins team have been about kick/punt return duties — the team parted ways with last year’s return specialists — as well as turnover running back and wide receiver. We addressed those questions right away, putting them to our panel of experts. Here is our panel:
Rick Snider, TheRickSniderReport.com and WashingtonExaminer.com
Rick is a long-time reporter and columnist in the D.C. area and is one of the foremost experts on the Redskins. Like me he’s a D.C. native who graduated from the University of Maryland, but unlike me he’s been covering sports here since 1978. You should read what he writes.
Michael Hoffman, Washington Examiner
Michael writes about the Washington Redskins and the Washington Capitals and has been with the Examiner since 2008. He’s new to our Round Table, but he comes highly recommended so we’re looking forward to his commentary.
Clinton Yates, Sports Editor of The Express
Another D.C. native [I'm starting to think there may be a few of us], Clinton is the Sports Editor for The Washington Post Express and a news anchor at WPFW. He’s been at our Round Table before and we will keep asking him back. I first “met” him on a local podcast and he’s a seriously smart guy.
Rich Tandler, Comcast Sports
He’s run the Real Redskins blog since 2004 and he also works as a Redskins beat reporter for Comcast Sports. He’s the author of The Redskins Chronicle, a history of the team from 1937 to 2008 and, my Lord, is a recognized authority on tailgating food. If you wanted to publish an unauthorized biography of the franchise, this is the man you’d hire.
John Keim, Washington Examiner
As hard-working a beat reporter as you’ll find in the D.C. area, Keim has covered the Redskins since 1994, as well as writing for Pro Football Weekly and Warpath Confidential. I think he’s been a part of every single one of our Round Tables and if you’ve read them before, you know why.
Ryan O’Halloran, Comcast Sports
After covering the Redskins as a beat reporter for the Washington Times, O’Halloran moved on to Comcast, where he writes about the Redskins every day. If you’re not reading his Redskins End Zone blog, you’re not as informed as you should be.
As always, their answers are presented in the order they were received. Now, on with the show…
