LANDOVER, Md. -- Now for something completely different. Redskins executive vice president of football operations Vinny Cerrato told frequent Beast contributor Sal Paolantonio that he has confidence in new playcaller Sherm Lewis. I'm sure this endorsement has nothing to do with the fact that Cerrato's the one who made the curious move. Sal Pal asked Cerrato why he had so much confidence in the former bingo caller.

"I think his history, Sal," Cerrato said. "The guy's got four Super Bowl rings, he's got 20-some years in this offense. He started with Bill Walsh, the originator of the offense. He's worked with Mike Holmgren; Jim [Zorn] worked a lot with Mike Holmgren. So he's got the experience. To me, Sal, it's like riding a bike. You don't ride a bike for a couple of years, you get back on, it's easy to ride a bike."

OK, I feel better about the Skins' chances.
