(photo by Brian Murphy)

Ladies and gentlemen, back by popular demand, it’s time for another round of “caption this.”

The game is fairly simple, as you hopefully know by now. We supply the photo and you bring the witty reader-submitted captions. You might not win any cool prizes, but you’ll be formally recognized for being better than your peers and will get some love here on the blog.

Here’s our humble offering for this photo to help get folks started:

“Always the innovator, Redskins coach Jim Zorn experiments with popup targets to help improve quarterback Jason Campbell’s downfield accuracy.”

Think you can do better? Leave a comment below with your best caption.

[Editor’s note: The winner is Paige with a caption of, You know it’s bad when the players start doing the wave out of boredom.”]

    Instead of the Wild Cat to throw in a little flair, the Redskins incorporate, “The Lord of the Dance” formation.

    The Redskins unveil their new series of officially-licensed Christmas ornaments. The Rock Cartwright figurine hangs from the third strings of lights, Dan Snyder sits on top of the tree in his private helicopter and the Mike Sellers ornament wanders the wrong way and ends up hanging from a Menorah.
