The Redskins finally put their pads on. Not that it mattered much thanks to the weather.
Foul weather: Thunder and lightning is a catchy name for a backfield. It's a bad combination for Fan Appreciation Day. And that's why it was cancelled today as a few thunderstorms hit the Washington area. It'll be made up at 7 p.m. Aug. 8. The Redskins did get their practice in, but it started nearly 90 minutes late and lasted only 50 minutes.
Deal done?: Safety LaRon Landry remained unsigned, but Joe Gibbs once again expressed optimism that something could happen ''any second.'' And, he added, ''I'd be disappointed if it didn't happen tonight.'' Now that No. 7 overall pick Adrian Peterson has signed, the clock should be ticking faster for a deal with Landry, the sixth overall choice.
Improvement: Quarterback Jason Campbell seemed to be more accurate today in his limited time running the offense today than he was yesterday. His passes were more on-target, a sign that the timing is starting to come around. At least a little bit.
Sign: Now this was funny: right after Brandon Lloyd caught a pass today, lightning struck and thunder clapped. We took that as a sign of something. Of what we have no idea.
Still out: Randy Thomas will miss another couple days because of his sore right knee. He had a shot of cortisone Friday. Jason Fabini worked in his spot today.
Big hit: Derrick Blaylock was lucky that Anthony Trucks wasn't trying to kill him. Trucks ran into Blaylock after he caught a Mark Brunell pass over the middle. There was no live hitting so Trucks did not hit him as hard as he could have.
