August 31-- Redskins lose 17-10 to ravens, fall ot 0-4 in pre-season

Here’s who didn’t play: WR Santana Moss, T Chris Samuels, G Randy Thomas, all held out mainly for precautionary reasons.. Vets Phillip Daniels, Cornelious Griffin, Clinton Portis, Demetric Evans, Renaldo Wynn, Shawn Springs and Robert McCune were all held out due to injury..

The Redskins ended the pre-season 0-4 for the first time since 1982, they ended up being outscored 104-27.. The first team offense failed to score a point in any of the four games.. Mark Brunell told me on the field afterward that they will just have to see what happens when the opener comes.. Marcus Washington said that the team is not in any kind of panic mode or thinking about packing in the tents, “We haven’t even gotten started yet.” Joe Gibbs admitted that he believes that other teams are hiding their game plans as well, he called the pre-season an “even-up” game and he remains highly concerned that the Redskins have not played to his standard and he remains in a wait and see mode when the regular season begins.. he said however he never knows how a team is going to play regardless how good or bad a pre-season may be..
Washington offered a glimmer of hope saying he understands by playing here how much the mental part of the game plays into success.. he says that due to the team not preparing for the opposition has a lot to do with the ultimate final product.. he says he is going to learn how Minnesota, “eats” let alone their tendencies this week and promises, you’ll see the team that has been a top 10 D come Monday night..

Gibbs said he has made his mind up about who the back-up QB is but refused to disclose it until he tells the players.. The announcement is expected tomorrow afternoon.. He did praise Todd Collins play all be it with many of the 3rd teamers..

Gibbs essentially said that for now Derrick Frost will handle punts and kick-offs, the team may continue to look at potential punters..

Injuries: WR Jimmy Farris suffered a hamstring strain, RB Rock Cartwright suffered a hip injury, QB Jason Campbell has a mild hamstring injury..

The team has until Saturday afternoon to cut down from 75 to 53 players.. Players squarely on the bubble, Draft pick DT’s Kedric Golston and Anthony Montgomery (likely one makes the team), FB Nehemiah Broughton and Manuel White.. Back-up O-line is also very much in question… The leading candidates for interior back-ups are Ike Ndwuke and Mike Puccillo.. Jim Molinaro started at left tackle and played the bulk of the snaps with the first and second team.. Tyson Walter is likely right now the other back-up.. The team has promised to scan the waiver wires for potential depth help there..WR Mike Espy appears like a sure fire candidate for the practice squad with WR a difficult position to crack..

LB Warrick Holdman said he hasn’t played much MLB during the summer, but was familiar enough with the calls to fill in during the Ravens game.. He said it was done to see him at the position in a game situation and because of lingering injuries at the position..

S Adam Archuletta played the bulk of the first half, partially due to Vernon Fox being a back-up safety and signed two days before the game, potentially also because the team wants to see more of him in game action..
