  1. Redskins Browns 4th quarter

    14:55—Another promising drive ends on some odd play calling as Alexander gets a carry up the middle on second and 10. There still is no rhythm to the play calling and so the Browns still are very much in the game. A nice Plackemeier punt, though, has the Browns pinned near the five. A three…

  2. Redskins Browns 3rd quarter

    I trust that Zorn will be able to come up with some halftime adjustments. That last drive wouldn’t have been bad had it taken place in the middle of the second quarter. It was well paced and effective, for that time of game. For the time that it actually happened, it took way too much…

  3. Redskins Browns 2nd quarter

    8:46—This game is flying by in terms of game time vs. real time but in terms of entertainment value, well, not so much. Neither team has been able to put together much of a sustained drive and it’s mostly poor offense—penalties, dropped passes, etc.—as opposed to solid defense of any sort. I’m not sure what…

  4. Redskins-Browns 1st quarter

    Pregame—The Redskins will kick off in their all-white uniforms. Zorn said that they would switch to the dark jerseys in the second half of the season, so when they host the Steelers on Monday night in a couple of weeks they should be in Burgundy shirts. 13:43—A fortunate three and out by the defense, as…

  11. Flashback Friday—Skins stars debut vs. Browns

    During the offseason leading up to the 1964 season, the Washington Redskins were quite busy adding high-caliber talent to the team. How good? Hall of Fame good. That year, the Redskins drafted wide receiver Charley Taylor and safety Paul Krause and traded for quarterback Sonny Jurgensen and linebacker Sam Huff. Taylor retired as the leading…

    I’m certainly one to bust on the media when they get it wrong, so I’m stepping up here to send out kudos to a couple of writers who got it right. One, shockingly, is Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post. After the Redskins’ opener, she couldn’t wait to bash Jim Zorn and the rest of…

    There is no question that the Washington Redskins will be ready when the Cleveland Browns come to town on Sunday. After being ambushed by the St. Louis Rams in what was supposed to be a cakewalk to a 7-1 record at midseason, the Redskins will be sure that the Browns do not sneak up on…

    After going for six weeks with no roster moves, the Washington Redskins made three of them on Tuesday. Here’s who’s in, who’s out, and what it means. Punter Ryan Plackemeier in, punter Durant Brooks out—The Redskins were as patient as they could be with Brooks but they just couldn’t afford to wait for him to…

  21. Betts out for a month?

    Ladell Betts may miss more time that we originally thought. According to Jason LaCanfora, Betts came very close to suffering a season-ending knee injury last Sunday and that he may not be back until after the bye week. If that’s the case, it makes sense of the Redskins’ decision to bring in Shaun Alexander for…

    Both ESPN and the NFL Network are reporting that running back Shaun Alexander, who was the NFL MVP in 2005 while playing for the Seattle Seahawks, is coming to Redskins Park for a visit. According to Adam Schefter of the NFLN, his signing with the Redskins is inevitable if he passes a physical. Of course,…
