Some quick hits to start off you Tuesday morning:Were going to have our camp preview on the defensive line and linebackers coming later today. I will say right now, though, that Im not sure that a battle for the starting right defensive end job, something Ive been previewing here much of the offseason, will take place. I think that Adam Carriker will start and Jarvis Jenkins will come off of the bench. That isnt necessarily because Carriker is better than Jenkins. I just think that they believe they will be able to take advantage of Jenkins versatility better if hes not starting.So Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com picked a score every NFL game for the coming season and he came up with a 3-13 record for the Redskins. As my friend @BurgundyBlog pointed out, Prisco has the Redskins scoring no more than 21 points in any game. They managed over 21 seven times in 2011. While rookie quarterbacks can be inconsistent, its difficult to see their offensive productivity plummeting with Robert Griffin III taking over for the 2011 RexBeck disaster.Training camp starts the day after tomorrow but if you plan on coming out be advised that they will not be wearing pads until Saturday. You can print out your training camp pass right here.In conjunction with the start of camp Ill be doing a chat on Thursday from 1-2 p.m. We can talk O-line, try to solve the secondary problems and maybe, just maybe, we can talk about that RG3 guy. Check back here for details.Days until: Training camp 2; preseason opener @ Bills 16; RG3 vs. Luck @FedEx Field 32; final cuts 39; Redskins @ Saints 47; home opener vs. Bengals 61
