October 8-- Gibbs praised for week off, Campbell shines while dazed

Injuries: WR Antwaan Randle-El (hamstring) questionable, LB Marcus Washington (hamstring) questionable, DE Phillip Daniels (shoulder) he said he would be able to play with the injury.. RB Clinton Portis (knee) is said to be fine for practice this week, CB Fred Smoot (shoulder burner), we’ll see if he practices later this week..

WR Santana Moss is expected to return to practice possibly as early as Wednesday after missing the Lions game with a groin injury.. There was no detailed report of his availability for the Packers game yet..

James Thrash will remain the back-up punt returner to Randle-El assuming Randle-El can play this weekend..

Awards given to the team after the 34-3 win over the Lions: Andre Carter, Carlos Rogers, Phillip Daniels, Marcus Washington, Fred Smoot on defense.. Lorenzo Alexander, Carlos Rogers, Sean Taylor and James Thrash on special teams.. He didn’t name the offensive players but Gibbs did reiterate he thought this was Jason Campbell’s best game of his young career..

Asked about the accolades Campbell said he is “just trying to move on.” He said he spent last night watching the Packers play the Bears and working toward preparation for the game Sunday not allowing himself to get too high.. He said he has met Brett Favre but doesn’t know him very well.. Campbell said he never attended Favre’s quarterback camp as a kid even though they are both from Mississippi but instead worked at Steve McNair’s camp.. Of course, Campbell was very laudatory about the career Favre has carved out, but told me for an interview to air for the pre-game show that Favre is the one quarterback who can get away with a lot of mistakes that others would be criticized for, but for good reason..
Campbell said he was dazed after fumbling the snap that led to a 4th and 2 play that ended with him hitting Randle-El that led to a Skins touchdown.. he said he doesn’t remember what happened but he was spitting out grass after a player knocked his helmet back across his face.. he said he was dizzy but after the team used a timeout he told the coaches he was ready to go back in for the 4th down play..

Joe Gibbs laughed when he was reminded about his decision to let the team have the entire bye week off.. He said “one of the things you think about when you are a coach are all the questions you are going to have to answer when decisions don’t go right.” In this case, it did..

OK men..

You taking requests this week? If you happen to see Bubba around, can you ask him how Randy Thomas' recovery is going? I noticed he's still not on IR.

Bram...saw the story below in Dan Steinberg's blog...any chance you wanna give us a hint? George Michael vs. Tommy Boswell? Thom Loverro versus Bret Haber? Tim Brandt vs. Dan Daly?

Media Locker Room Rumble

Blind item:

Which print journalist and which television talking head nearly came to blows in the Redskins locker room after Sunday's game, at which point they were forcibly separated by another TV employee, only to later rejoin their argument, drawing stares from several players?

Fun fun fun.

whoa nelly....I missed that story. George Michael strikes me as the only one on the list passionate enough about the redskins to come to blows. But then again, who says it was an argument about the team. Fill us in, Bram!

Unless of course Bram was one of the guys throwing down? Bram...did you feel compelled to drop the hammer on La Confora out at FedEx?

Well, clearly, one of two things is going on here:

A) Bram is petrified to respond because he doesn't want to out one of his colleagues/friends for making an a$$ of himself in the locker room, possibly jeopardizing that person's career.

B) Bram cold cocked George Michael and he doesn't feel like talking about it.

c'mon bram...don't ignore us like we're some random redskins fan at a horse race.

Inquring minds want to know.

Part of me wishes it was "Battle of the Michael's: Larry vs. George".

I actually didn't see it so I don't know what happened.. Honest truth!
I have heard versions of it, but probably shouldn't share because it's total heresay.. It if involved me I certainly would have addressed it but I'm a lover not a fighter!

I confirmed last night that the print guy was Les Carpenter...still trying to pin down who the TV guy was, but apparently it went down in front of Casey Rabach's locker.
