Letter writer Jack Wickham thinks that few members of the First Nations find team names like Redskins (and their logos) offensive because, he says, he does not hear them complain ( "Patent office goes too far with Redskins decision," June 24). I would only ask, how many Native Americans does Mr. Wickham count among his personal acquaintances? I know of no Native Americans among my acquaintances who find such names tolerable. Writers like Sherman Alexie, moreover, have articulated what might be termed the "Native American point of view" on this subject - even if such texts have not come to Mr. Wickham's attention.

The Ravens' marquee free agent signing bounced back from a pair of quiet preseason games with the kind of impact performance he felt like he needed to have Saturday against Washington. Wide receiver Steve Smith made six catches for 80 yards and a highlight reel touchdown late in the first half, when he hauled in a 24-yard pass from quarterback Joe Flacco while sliding through the end zone. “You come here in free agency and everybody has a question,” Smith said after the game.

The dream of Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke of a 78,600-seat monument to himself in Laurel is dead. He can't build without zoning variances from Anne Arundel County, and, having been turned down once, will not try again. He's now eyeing a Prince George's County site inside the Capital Beltway. Perhaps he sees that his money and power aren't enough to outweigh the folly of plunking a pro football stadium on a too-small plot of land in the middle of suburbia. Not this time, anyway.Moving the Redskins to Laurel, at the Anne Arundel-Howard county line, never made sense.

NFL Redskins cut wide receiver Thomas after trade efforts fail The Redskins released Devin Thomas on Saturday, cutting ties to the third-year receiver who came to Washington with lofty expectations but leaves without a single reception in 2010. The decision to waive Thomas, who started 10 games under coach Jim Zorn in 2009 but was buried on the depth chart under coach Mike Shanahan this season, removes one of the highest-profile draft picks made by Vinny Cerrato , Shanahan's predecessor as head of football operations.

1 Avoid turnovers. The Redskins turned it over six times last week in Philadelphia when quarterback Brad Johnson gave the game away.2 Run Stephen Davis. The NFC's third-leading rusher with 729 yards, Davis needs to make the Giants respect the run.3 Confuse Kent Graham. The Redskins' shaky defense needs to give Graham a lot of different looks because he's not good at reading defenses.
