REDSKINS REPORT

SEEN AND HEARD

Joe Theismann has taken retired Channel 4 sports anchor George Michael’s seat on owner Dan Snyder’s golf cart, at least for a day. But there was a new driver — The Danny’s right-hand man, Vinny Cerrato was behind the wheel.

Unlike last year’s brutal conditions that included mid-day, 100-plus-degree heat, yesterday was almost comfortable. The overcast skies and nice breeze made it for a quick 1 hour, 35 minute practice.

Although the team wasn’t in full pads, there appears to be more contact going on, especially in the trenches where linemen were hitting the ground on every play and by the linebackers against the running backs.

THE BUZZ

CORNELIUS GRIFFIN — Up

The veteran defensive tackle looks like he’s in the best shape of his career after an intense offseason training program.

THE ATMOSPHERE — Sideways

The diehards were present, but it was nowhere near the crowd that came screaming for autographs last year.

RANDY THOMAS — Down

The starting right guard was limited in the first practice because of knee soreness, not a good sign for a key player.

LONG SHOT OF THE DAY
