I just gave you the list of who is and isn't practicing today for the Giants.

Know who isn't practicing today for the Redskins? The Redskins.

Because the team with some of the deepest pockets and one of the biggest stadiums in the NFL does not have an indoor practice facility -- not even a tent to put up over the fields -- whenever it rains like it is today in the Washington area the Redkins have to either work outside in the elements or go to Dulles Airport and have a walk-through in an airplane hangar.

Donovan McNabb, in his first year with the Skins, tried to put a spin on the situation.

"What happens is guys get a chance to rest their bodies," McNabb said. "The most important thing is we get the mental phase down. Communicating and walking through the particular plays and the fronts that you may see, the blitzes you can prepare for, and guys get a chance to watch a little more film."

Plus they have a TSA pat-down before practice!
