    Redskins appoint new GM
    Having met with success with the MEGA Carolina Panthers, Washington management today appointed Gotham the General Manager of the 0-1 Redskins.

    Gotham will likely also take over playcalling on the sideline, as well as quarterback, running back and defensive end duties for the team.

    Financial details were not disclosed, but it is rumored that Gotham will not receive any salary.

    Gotham has won more game than he has lost in his 10 years of playing Madden, but he has been the centre of controversy several times. He likes to trade his best players, and also take long walks on the beach.

Arrived in Detroit in 2007 for his sixth NFL season after spending 2006 with Washington who acquired him through a trade with Atlanta. The Falcons originally drafted Duckett in the first round (18th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft. In four seasons with Atlanta (2002-05), scored 33 rushing touchdowns. Established career highs in 2003 with 779 rushing yards and a team-leading 11 touchdowns on 197 attempts (4.0 avg.) while playing in all 16 games (11 starts).

    Gotham pulls the trigger, trades with Tampa Bay
    GM/Coach/Towelboy Gotham hasn't even played his first game yet, but is already wheeling and dealing trying to build a team to his liking. Citing laziness during practice, the Redskins have parted ways with Pro Bowl tight-end Chris Cooley, and lineman Casey Rabach. Tampa Bay GM weblink21 contacted the Skins about the trade, and the rest was history.

    "Cooley is a fat lazy slug, and Faine is just too stupid to run my offense." Gotham announced at a press conference this afternoon.

    In return, the Redskins improved their offensive line greatly by acquiring Jeff Faine. Faine was a first round pick by Cleveland in 2003 and was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2007.

    Also acquired in the trade was TE Jerramy Stevens, who at 6'7" is the kind of catching tight-end that is a prime target for QB Jason Campbell. Stevens caught 36 passes for 397yds and 2 touchdowns in 2008.

    Jerramy has had his share of troubles both on and off the field including violating the leagues substance abuse policy in 2008 for which we was suspended 2 games.

    Redskins trade with division rival Giants
    In a surprising move, the Washington Redskins today traded with division rival New York Giants. The much sought after safety LaRon Landry, and underperforming tackle Stephen Heyer were sent packing to the Giants to bring in powerhouse rackle Kareem Mackenzie and young safety Michael Johnson.

    This move marks the second trade in a 2-hour period for the new GM/Coach/Cabanaboy Gotham.

    About his revamped offensive line, Gotham remarked, "I like my offensive like how I like my women - built like brick shithouses."

    When asked to comment about his involvement with the trade, a Giants representative gleefully shrieked, "Yippee! Landry has the cutest butt ever to grace a red, white and blue uniform!".

    Time will tell if trading Landry was a wise move, and the two teams will play again in Week 15.

    Free Agent Signing: Jon Kasay
    Carolina kicker John Kasay, who made 28 of 31 field goals last year, was signed by the Redskins Saturday, for an undisclosed term.

    The 39-year-old Kasay, an 18-year NFL veteran, has a career total of 374 field goals, for eighth place on the all-time NFL field goal list.

    Kasay started his NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks in 1991. He was signed by Carolina in 1995, the team's first year in the league.

    Redskins Acquire Scat Back
    Washington completed a transaction today that will see promising halfback James Davis from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for wide receiver Malcolm Kelly.

    It will be interesting to see how Gotham plans to use Davis, whether as a 3rd back behind Portis and Duckett, or on returns. Davis has (1) kickoff returned for a touchdown already this year.

    Malcolm Kelly had the misfortune of being on a West Coast offense, with a playcaller who doesn't like to pass. The move to Cleveland may prove to be refreshing for the youngster.
