Greetings from Baltimore's Inner Harbor

BALTIMORE -- I've reached that point in the training camp tour where I wake up and have no clue where I am. This morning I stopped by the University at Albany campus to say goodbye to the Giants and now I'm sitting in a hotel room about a block away from the Ravens' M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens and Redskins are preparing for their first preseason game.

I'm curious to hear what Redskins fans are most interested in seeing tonight. Here's a preview of the game from the Washington Times' online staff. Starting quarterback Jason Campbell will probably go two series, at the most. Then we can settle in for what should be a heated competition between Todd Collins and Colt Brennan.

We're not going to see Albert Haynesworth's debut, but I'm ready to see how rookie Brian Orakpo looks at strongside linebacker. I think you'll see a few mistakes from him, but I also think you'll see him make some plays.

In other news, Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly will have an opportunity to shine. Santana Moss is out with a hamstring injury, so Thomas and Kelly should get plenty of reps. The reality of the situation is that Jim Zorn's simply trying to make sure no one gets hurt. That's why running back Clinton Portis won't be on the field tonight.

Let me know what you guys are focused on tonight? The NFC East has three of its four teams in action tonight. I'll be keeping an eye on what's going on with the Cowboys and Eagles from my perch inside M&T Bank Stadium.
