  1. Redskins fans should root for Ravens

    Jan 7, 2009, 8:55 AM EDT

    If fans of the Washington Redskins are looking for a rooting interest in the NFL playoffs, they should look about 32 miles to the north of FedEx Field to M&T Bank Stadium. They should think purple. Yes, Redskins fans should be rooting for the Baltimore Ravens to win the Super Bowl. I know that the…

  2. Position Paper: Running Back

    Jan 5, 2009, 12:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The first of an occasional series about what the Redskins might do and what they should do to address personnel issues. The Redskins were #8 in the NFL in rushing yardage in 2008. Clearly that was the strength of the offense as the passing game ranked #23. And the strength of the running game was…

  4. Change in the air?

    There was a lot of talk of change in the air at Redskins Park over the last few days. At his season-wrap up presser, Jim Zorn indicated that there would be changes. But he also said that there wasn’t much of anything that he wanted to change. He likes his quarterback, his offense, his job…

  6. Zorn’s strategic error costs Skins

    There really isn’t a whole lot to break down about today’s game. The teams traded hot streaks for 55 minutes and then they exchanged scores at the end. It’s the Niners’ last score, the game-winning field goal, that is the focus here. San Francisco never should have had a chance to try it, or at…

    It’s the last game of the year and it means nothing as far as the playoffs go, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a lot of fun. Join me right here for the Real Redskins live blog of the Skins vs. the 49ers. It’s a 4:15 kickoff and other commitments will make it difficult…

    Had the Washington Redskins managed to beat the Cincinnati Bengals last week or the St. Louis Rams in mid-October, yesterday’s 10-3 win over the Eagles would have been a landmark game with a legendary finish. It would have propelled them into a position to snag a spot in the playoffs by beating the 49ers next…

    14:06—Moss deep on the punt. A nice return but a pair of flags on the field will call it back. Still, OK field position at their own 30 for the Redskins. 12:56—Once again, Campbell shows his fancy footwork, picking up 19 on a scramble on third and 12. A three and out is averted and…

    This just goes to show you that the Redskins can stay in virtually in game when they don’t come out and give it away in the first five minutes of play. It’s far, far from over but the Skins are waking up and playing better ball. The Eagles have 66 yards of offense. 14:05—The Eagles…

    A big third and five coming up here for the Redskins. A few months ago, I would say it’s two-down territory as they’re at the Philly 35, but now you don’t know. 14:50—No decision to be made as the bubble screen to Moss gets blown up. As of now, they’re sending Suisham out to try…

    The wind is blowing in FedEx pretty hard. It’s unusual to see the streamers on the goal posts moving, but they are pretty steady from right to left as you look on TV. If you’re in the end zone where my brother is sitting, it’s right in your face. 13:52—The Redskins come out with a…

    It’s the final 2008 trip to the FedEx Field press box, so the live blog will be of the quarterly update variety. If there are any instant updates necessary, you can follow them via the Twitter (great service, dumb name) box on the left sidebar. I’ll be tailgating with Redskins Examiner Mark Newgent and with…

    A little behind here, but here goes with a quick prediction. I do think that the Redskins have a shot here. They hit rock bottom last week against the Bengals. They have no place to go but up. The question is have they rebounded enough to beat the hot Eagles? Probably not, unless a few…
