We should get our first chance to talk to newly acquired Tashard Choice either just before or just after his first Redskins practice. Among the topics will be his departure from Dallas, what he expects his role here to be, and how his health is (he was waived-injured by the Cowboys).John Beck will take the podium at around 11 and give his take on last Sundays shutout. In particular, we will ask him about the nine sacks and how many of them he thinks might have been his fault after reviewing the film.In the locker room well ask about how to stop the 49ers offense, particularly running back Frank Gore. He has at least 125 yards in each of his last four games and the Redskins have had a tough time stopping the run this year.While practice is going on, the conference calls with representatives from the upcoming opponent will take place. These can often be dull conversations but today should be an exception. San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is an outgoing and entertaining guy. But every member of the media is looking forward to talking with ex-Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers. He apparently had some provocative things to say on local radio yesterday and well follow up on those comments and more.After practice, it will be Mike Shanahan on the podium and well ask him about the Choice acquisition, which was not revealed until after his press conference on Monday.That session should take place outside, which has been an unusual occurrence of late. Rain usually forces media available indoors on Wednesdays but the weather is forecast to be sunny with highs in the mid-50s.
