Good beat writers for the Redskins?
 
Hey guys, I've been working on a site that displays Redskins related tweets and organizes them based on type (i.e. players, writers, bloggers). I have plenty of players, but I'm struggling with finding enough good quality writers. I could use more bloggers as well, but writers are my first priority.

Do you guys happen to know any good writers I should add? I'm looking for guys that are good at breaking news or getting creditable rumors out. Not looking so much for the guys who like to talk about non-football or their personal life.

The writers who seem to mainly cover the Redskins are:

@DanGrazianoESPN
@Russellmania980
@Rich_Campbell
@Rich_Tandler


The site can be found here if you want to check it out or see how the writers I have work currently: [url=http://www.nfltweeter.com/redskins]Redskins | NFL tweeter[/url] I'd appreciate any feedback on the site as well.

Any other writers besides the ones I'm using that you guys feel are worth adding?

Thanks again!

Good find. I'm keeping him on a side list. He's off topic now, but it is off season. I'll check back with him when season is here. Thank you.

Let me know if you have a couple other worth checking out.

All he covers are the Skins, he's quite active on Twitter

Damn. I had a strong urge to come in here and tell you to add guys like Mike Jones and Jason La Canfora, but I'll play nice instead and tell you what you've got so far is good. Guys like Campbell, Tandler, and Keim are must haves, and this might get some flak around these parts but I would add Mike Florio, despite his low credibility PFT seems to be on the up & up these days. Also nice work on the site, it's nice to have an organized list of Redskins related tweeters.

That's good to hear. BTW La Canfora is on the home page. I throw the guys who cover the general NFL on there in the "trending" feed. Haven't done much with the home page but the trending sections gives everyone an idea of what's going on outside of their team.

Thanks for the kind comments, I appreciate them. That is the underlying idea of the site. A simple, convenient, and efficient way to follow your team. I hope you will continue to use the site. Always feel free to let me know in the future if you feel someone should be added or removed to help keep the site content relevant.

I'd add Russ...Grant Paulsen is good for scoop, not so much for breaking news.

Maske yeah...isn't he back on the Skins beat now? Did the Post figure out having a guy that the team actually likes isn't a bad idea?

Is Jason la Canfora a redskin fan?

SmootSmack 04-22-2012 08:18 AM

Re: Good beat writers for the Redskins?
 
He's a Ravens fan. And Tandler is great but don't look to him for breaking news

Nice find! He's got some good content. I've added him to the list. I'll update the feeds overnight tonight. For some reason when I make changes the feeds go out of whack for a couple hours.
