She loves riding her horse, Dee, English and Western, and also loves snowboarding, wakeboarding, four-wheeling, fishing, and talking (re: debating) about sports.

ME: All right, let’s talk about RGIII, is he gonna be back for game one?
TK: It’s too early to tell. Anybody who tells you that right now is an idiot.
J: They’ll get a better idea at camp.
TK: He may think his body is ready to go…it’s just too early to tell.
ME: How about our tight end situation, who’s going to be starting there?
J: Fred Davis as long as he’s back. It’s Fred’s job to lose.
ME: So not Paulsen?
J: Paulsen is a solid second, but not a starter.
ME: What about Trent Williams?
TK: Well, you can hit him over the head with a champagne bottle and he won’t go down.
ME: Who is the best pick-up we’ve had this free agency?
TK: D. Hall
J: If I gotta give an offseason nod to anybody, it’d be to Bruce Allen, the GM. You get hit with an 18 million dollar cap hit…he just did a fantastic job with all of that.
ME: Who do you think was the worst move or do you think there were any bad moves? I mean we’re no longer the “Offseason Champs” in a bad way…
J: I’m not wild about
to upgrade the position…We have a ton of cap space for next year. We can go out and rebuild it [the secondary] the way they want it. They would have let him go next year anyway.”
ME: What about Biggers?
J: He’s a boom or bust.
ME: So can we call Biggers “Boom or Bust Biggers?”
TK: That’s a J thing.
ME: Let’s talk about Darryl Tapp. You excited about that? Cause I am. Hokies.
TK: He’ll be a special teamer. Replacement for ‘Zo [Lorenzo Alexander]. May rotate in as linebacker.
JSteelz: I like Tapp, but I can’t get past the Eagles thing.
ME: Okay, well how do you think we’ll do against the NFCEast?
TK: Open season in Philly, probably Sunday or Monday…my entire problem with Chip Kelly is you don’t know what to expect and you may or may not have your franchise QB. A division game basically counts as two wins or two losses when it comes down the homestretch to the playoffs. Not a good game to open with at all…Revamped
Philly: new coach, new offense, new defense—you saw what we did in New Orleans last year when no one had tape on us.
(Update as of 8:30pm 4/18/13: The Skins are opening at FedEx against Philly on Monday, September 9th)
ME: Do you think our team, looking at them on paper, will be good enough to make the playoffs right now?
JSteelz: If everybody’s healthy they should be good to go. Keep the defense healthy, mainly the secondary and pass rush, and keep Garcon in 16 games.
ME: Let’s talk about Romo, let’s talk about his new deal. Have anything to say about that?
TK: @!^%*#$ awesome …there’s no way he’ll finish out those 6 years.
JSteelz: Best move for us.
ME: Do you want to say anything about the Draft Day Party coming up?
TK: It’s next Saturday [April 27th at FedEx Field] 6:00am-6:00pm. And don’t be the fool that shows up with just a bag of chips.
ME: Gas or Charcoal? Gotta ask that.
JSteelz: Charcoal for sure.
TK: Charcoal…only other acceptable answer is wood.
ME: Oh, and is RGIII gonna be there on Saturday?
TK: RGIII will be there…can’t say if you’ll definitely get an autograph or not,
though.Looks like things are lookin up for the Skins. 142 days til Redskins football is back!
