  1. Live Blogs—Skins-Ravens and early games

    Dec 4, 2008, 9:21 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s the Redskins vs. the Ravens, flexed to Sunday night football on NBC. The live blog will be here starting at about 7:30 PM. It will be the usual fun with running commentary on the action and your input on what’s happening as well. I’m also planning on putting up a different live blog window…

  2. Will 10 wins get in?

    In 2005 and again in 2007 the Washington Redskins faced strings of must-win games in December. They lost to San Diego in the last game of November of ’05 to fall to 5-6. They then reeled off five straight wins to grab a Wild Card spot. Last year they were 5-7 after a December 2…

  4. Benching Campbell would be a big mistake

    Let’s cut straight to the subject that’s been buzzing around the message board and talk radio world: Should Jason Campbell be benched? Clearly, his performance has fallen off in the past seven games. After the first five games of the year Campbell’s QB rating stood at a very respectable 100 and he hadn’t thrown an…

  6. Redskins Giants Fourth Quarter

    Nov 30, 2008, 8:57 PM EDT

    Good job by the defense, turning a second and one into a fourth and one and a punt. Jacobs got stonewalled twice and the Redskins have some life as the fourth quarter starts. 11:09—The teams exchange three and outs and with still plenty of time left, the Redskins still have a chance. The New York…

  7. Redskins Giants Third Quarter

    Nov 30, 2008, 8:21 PM EDT

    It will be very tough for the Redskins here, but they’re not out of it. New York gets the kickoff and another turnover would be ideal. By the way, I think the Skins have to find an alternative to Suisham. He has lost it and this is no time for him to try to find…

  8. Redskins Giants Second Quarter

    Nov 30, 2008, 7:38 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    14:50—Again, throwing short of the first down marker on third down. This time it was incomplete but it wouldn’t have mattered as it was a good three yards shy of the line to make. That’s a situation where you might as well go deep since if it’s picked it’s as good as a punt. Better,…

    13:15—Not a very aggressive first series there for Zorn. A four-yard pass to Thrash, who has no RAC ability, on third and six isn’t exactly pushing the envelope. It resulted in a three and out and a quick punt back to the Giants. Toomer 40 pass from Manning (Carney kick)Giants 7, Redskins 0 That was…

    It’s a home game, so I’m trying a new work-around for the Wi-Fi disabled press box at FedEx Field. If you look to the left sidebar, you’ll see a new box for updates via Twitter. Twitter is a dumb name for a pretty cool and useful service. It’s a social network service that lets you…

    The Washington Redskins should not have to worry about covering Plaxico Burress on Sunday. The New York Giants may or may not have to worry about tackling Clinton Portis. Burress, who torched the Washington secondary with 10 catches for 113 yards in the season opener, is listed as out with a hamstring injury. As has…

    Redskins fans have plenty to be thankful for on this day: The Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles—This seems a bit odd, but stay with me. The Redskins get to play six games a year against three of the most storied teams in the entire NFL, teams with long traditions (well, except the Cowboys) of championship-caliber play…

  22. Skins-Seahawks First Take

    Some initial observations, in no particular order. The Washington Redskins went back to the formula that worked early in the year. They battled even through four quarters and then dominated the fourth. Seattle ran all of five plays after they scored to tie the game at 17 with 13:24 left in the fourth quarter. Washington…

    So is Sean Alexander. Tight end Fred Davis is the odd man out as he is inactive. Joining him on the bench will be Jason Fabini, Chard Reinhardt, Rob Jackson, Anthony Montgomery, Erasmus James, Marcus Washington, and third QB Colt Brennan. Live blog will start soon.
