  1. Playoffs: It's Alive!

    Dec 20, 2004, 6:40 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s down to two games left to play and, like the madman in Poe’s “Tell-Tale Heart”, some of us can still hear a sound of a heart beating that sounds very, very real. Even with the Lions, Bucs, Rams and Bears losing, the playoffs are still a longshot. But maybe you don’t have to believe…

    The Redskins aren’t dead just yet. I did say it would be Monday before I used the P-word again, but a fan who goes by Kevin Mac posted what needs to happen for the Redskins to make it on the site that this blog proudly calls home, WarpathInsiders.com. We need 6 of the following 7…

  6. Brown–A correction

    Dec 18, 2004, 3:53 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Apparently, I didn’t give Ray Brown quite enough credit yesterday when I said that he was the oldest player ever to play as a regular on the offensive line. According to Nunyo Demasio in the Post “After turning 42 last Sunday, Brown became the first offensive lineman in the modern era to play the position…

  9. Redskins Good Luck on Injuries?

    Dec 17, 2004, 2:32 AM EDT

    The Redskins announced that kicker John Hall will be placed on injured reserve with a torn quadricep, ending the kickers season. From a Washington Times article: “‘You can’t imagine [a kicker] having three different injuries,’ (Joe) Gibbs lamented. Hall, who missed just one game in his previous seven seasons with the New York Jets and…

  11. Redskins vs. Eagles Predictions Analysis

    Dec 14, 2004, 6:51 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Every week, I look back at the predictions I made for the upcoming game and rate them according to how much water they held. One bucket means that it didn’t hold enough water to drown a housefly; a Five-Bucket prediction holds enough for several suburban swimming pools. Prediction: Patrick Ramsey is playing better and better…

  16. Arrington Might Play

    Dec 10, 2004, 2:32 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I wouldn’t be so quick to believe those who are saying that Lavar Arrington won’t play on Sunday. From my Redskins Park sources: ”He moved very well,” Redskins assistant head coach for defense Gregg Williams said. ”If he’s not tremendously sore from what he did today he does have a chance. I never would have…

  17. Dallas: It Doesn't Matter

    OK, I promise to stop with any and all playoff scenario talk until after Sunday, at which point it either will cease because the Redskins will have lost and will be out of it or it will explode because it will have become significantly more realistic. Until then, one point: It really doesn’t matter what…

  22. Domination

    Dec 7, 2004, 2:26 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Someday, perhaps in the middle of the 2005 season, there will be a day when dominating a beat-up New York Giants team will not be such a big deal. A two-to-one time of possession edge? Ho-hum, routine stuff. Two touchdown drives of over 90 yards? Nice, but it happens so often, we lost track. Over…

    According to sources at Redskins Park: “Randy Thomas made it through another practice today and will start at right guard against NY on Sunday. Gibbs added that Randy Thomas is a’tough sucker’ and ‘those will be the kind of guys we build around’”
