Now the team has until 4 pm Saturday afternoon to cut three dozen players to get their roster down to 53 players for the regular seasonCheck back here often for NFL cuts, news, rumors, and reports on who didn't make the cut before the team makes the official announcement tomorrow. We will be constantly updating this tracker as the information comes out.Cuts and upd[​IMG]ates[11:15am] Ben Standig reports that Tyler Catalina underwent shoulder surgery this week that is likely season-ending. There has been speculation by Redskins reporters that the team will look at tomorrow's cuts for guard depth.[11:00am] The Redskins roster currently stands at 90 players. They have one player on the Non-Football Injury list(Joshua Holsey), one on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list(Stacy McGee), and 4 players on Injured Reserve(Arie Kouandjio, Derrius Guice, Manasseh Garner, and Robert Davis).Redskins twitter feed:Tweets from https://twitter.com/HunterLoganX/lists/beat-writersNFL News twitter feed:Tweets from https://twitter.com/HunterLoganX/lists/nfl-rumors-and-reporters It pains me when a Monday arrives and we aren’t celebrating a victory, but it pains me more when a loss feels like more than just one loss. The Washington Redskins are 5-3, still sitting in first place in the NFC East, and still in charge of their future, but if we’re being honest this morning, it just doesn’t feel that way.Not only did the loss to the Atlanta Falcons sting the hometown fans, the in-stadium experience suffered as a result of the masses of Falcons fans at FedEx Field. This is nothing new, but I am going to allow myself to be distracted by this today. One of the worst parts about being old enough to remember attending games at RFK Stadium is knowing how good it was versus how bad it is now. In 2018, we all can agree on some basic facts. The first one is that the in-home NFL experience has been enhanced exponentially. Without sitting in traffic, paying exorbitant rates for beer and concessions, or subsidizing an owner you might feel has single-handedly ruined your favorite team, you can enjoy the NFL experience from the comfort of your own home. That is before we even get to having to sit at YOUR OWN HOME STADIUM and feeling like you are on the road. Put simply, it sucks Cheap Jordan Reed Jersey , and I am just about done with it. But my feelings on this have evolved in spite of Dan Snyder and not because of him. I never let him get to me or my desire to be at the stadium to watch this team over the years. I know many of you tapped out long ago solely because of the owner, and I get it. My rationale for continuing to go to games was driven by the love of tailgating and the ability to watch a game the way I wanted to, and not based on what the cameras showed me at home. I just love watching live football, but even that is being ruined to some degree, and as much as I hate to say it, the fault lies with more than just Snyder.The NFL has entered into a real “Destination Experience” era, with only a handful of places left around the country where stadiums remain steadfastly full of hometown fans. I remember sitting in my seat for ten years to start the 2000’s and even when this Redskins team was terrible, the place was pretty full (or Redskins fans). If you recall, back then, we had a...cough, cough...”Waiting List” for Redskins fans and we spent a ton of time beating each other up when season ticket holders sold their tickets to opposing fans. (We only found out later that Snyder was selling 10,000+ ticket blocks to brokers who were dumping tickets to opposing fans.) Today, we are a lot wiser, knowing full well that FedEx is not sold out and that the nation’s capital and surrounding area is full of fans from all over the country. I am not sure how that rabbit gets put back in the hat, either, short of Snyder removing another 25,000+ seats or so from FedEx (before long, and at this rate, the stadium might eventually be as cozy as your basement or living room). This isn’t a Redskins-specific problem, either. Watch the other games. You can hear a loud roar from most stadiums regardless of which team does something exciting (irregardless, even). I think my realization today stems from me seeing that the NFL...does...not...care about this. They seem to have moved on from the idea of “home-field advantage.” The money these days (and for a while, honestly) comes from television, and that has driven the league to maximize its presence in places like Los Angeles where not even the Rams enjoy a solid home-field advantage. The end result is someone like me sitting at FedEx Field on a day like yesterday in a seat I have sat in for years Youth Preston Smith Jersey , realizing that Redskins fans were outnumbered in the sections all around me. You might be saying that this has been going on for years, and you would be right, but for years, it was situation where the dam was breaking, but still standing. I am telling you that I think the dam has burst, and while we may disagree, my report is coming from the front lines, where I have been embedded for about 20 years. We talked about it in the summer, the idea that this year was going to feel different in the stands. I knew that in my gut when I walked out of FedEx Field for the last time in 2017, and that was before the team came clean about the “Waiting List” and yanked out more sections. Well, it’s official...there is no denying that 2018 has been a DRASTICALLY different experience at FedEx. In fairness to the folks at FedEx, I give them credit for working to make the day as enjoyable as possible. They have done well with the hand they have been dealt. As the NFL fully embraces the “Destination Experience” era, I find myself gravitating more toward the home tailgate. I don’t know why it took this long for me. I didn’t spend one penny at the stadium yesterday, as has been my practice for years. I enjoyed the hell out of the tailgate (shout out Danny and Gibby), and I loved watching live football. Watching a loss sucked, but that hasn’t been enough to push me out of FedEx yet. The throngs of fans from everywhere else is doing the job though, because...let’s be honest, opposing fans don’t come to quietly root for their team (nor should they).Alright, enough on the stadium. The game also blew. My first thought going into the game was that I was going to get to watch Tevin Coleman up close and personal. He is a free agent at the end of this season, and I don’t know how Atlanta is going to be able to keep him, though I am routinely surprised when teams solve problems like that. If you have been listening/watching on Tuesdays or reading this space, you know I have been pining for this move already. I don’t know how much he will demand in his next contract, but the idea of Coleman and Guice in the backfield is exciting to me. One thing is certain...he gave the Redskins and the Redskins fanbase a solid look at his abilities. It may have been his best game of the season Youth Paul Richardson Jersey , which is slightly shocking because he did it against a defense that has been shutting running backs down all year.The worst part about our defense losing battles early to Atlanta’s offense was that it put our offense in the position of having to play from behind. That is not something a ground-and-pound offense is built to do, even though there was a point in the third quarter where it felt like Alex Smith was building some momentum. By the beginning of the fourth quarter, the game was decided, though it did warm the heart to see Josh Doctson finally pull down a fade for a touchdown. The worst part of yesterday to me was that the outcome kind of reinforced that fear we all share that the 2018 Redskins can’t keep up with a team that can both move the ball and score through the air. As excited as I was to see Haha Clinton-Dix on the field—and he started—it was clear that he doing little more than playing center field early. Deep, deep center field (think the old Detroit Tigers stadium...death valley center field). He came up and made some tackles, but if you were watching on television, he was off the screen. It was telling that Montae Nicholson came back to finish the first half to defend Atlanta’s two-minute drill. Clinto-Dix was back to start the second half after some adjustments and education in the locker room I am sure. Maybe I was expecting too much...clearly he was unable to make the kind of difference yesterday that would have changed the result. Let’s just see how that develops ahead of the tilt against Fitzmagic.I can’t get through this Sixpack without a nod to the injuries we are already discussing on other threads on Hogs Haven today. God it sucked to see Morgan Moses, Shawn Lauvao and Brandon Scherff stay on the ground. Moses
