  1. Forgotten Classic: Williams Nails Down the Job

    Jun 30, 2009, 9:00 AM EST

    Comments Off

    This game, the 1987 regular-season finale, had no significance in and of itself for Washington. The Redskins already had wrapped up the division title and their playoff seeding was set. And, yes, even though both of the teams’ records add up to 15 games it was the finale. This was a strike season and one…

  3. Forgotten Classic: A Sonny Day

    Comments Off

    The Sonny Jurgensen era was coming to the end in 1974. In fact, he “retired” at the end of that season (actually, George Allen did not offer him a contract for 1975). But he did have his last hurrah in this game against the two-time defending champion Dolphins at RFK Stadium. Although it’s impossible to…

    I’ll be on the radio this afternoon with a 4:45 appearance on ESPN 750 in Richmond. That’s the Red Zebra affiliate here. I’ll be talking about the tailgate dustup and about the Redskins’ offseason. I also will do my best to work in a mention of The Redskins Chronicle. If you’re not in Richmond you…

  7. Tailgate-gate settled?

    Comments Off

    It appears that those who were concerned that a new Redskins policy dealing with tailgating prior to games at FedEx Field have little to worry about. The relevant portion of the press release that came from Redskins PR a short time ago is below. It appears that the only people who might get their feathers…

  9. Flashback Friday—Revenge of the Body Bags

    Jun 19, 2009, 11:06 AM EST

    Comments Off

    I put up a Redskins Chronicle excerpt from the 1990 season up on the website and this game has drawn a few comments. About two months before this first-round playoff game the Eagles had physically whipped the Redskins, beating them 28-14 in a game that was not nearly as close as that score would indicate.…

  11. Quick hits 06.18.09—Tickets, training camp and the Chronicle

    Jun 18, 2009, 9:00 AM EST

    I just got an automated phone call from the Redskins offering me Redskins season tickets. It’s at least the third, maybe the fourth one I’ve received in the past couple of months. On top of that I’ve received two mailings offering the same thing. On top of that I’m not the only person I know…

  13. Plenty of jobs available in Ashburn

    In contrast to what we’re seeing in many businesses, the Washington Redskins will be hiring later this summer. There is opportunity aplenty in Ashburn. Of the 53 players on the roster for the last game of the 2008 season, 13 of them will not be reporting to training camp on July 30. That means that…

  15. Redskins say no to Vick

    Jun 12, 2009, 1:39 AM EST

    Comments Off

    After considering the possibility of signing Michael Vick, the Redskins quickly decided against making that move. The news, coming from John Keim at the Washington Examiner, isn’t surprising. In fact, I would say that it wasn’t exactly man bites dog news, but that would be a bad pun of questionable taste. Other than the fact…

  17. Is the end near for Thrash?

    It appears that James Thrash has a decision to make. According to Dave Elfin of the Washington Times, Thrash has been struggling with a neck injury all offseason. Medication took care of the pain during the offseason down time but once workouts started in March the bulging disc flared up again. He has yet to…

  19. Jansen, Moss salary cap implications

    Jun 4, 2009, 11:40 AM EST

    Comments Off

    When I wrote about Jon Jansen’s release a week ago, I was imprecise in communicating a number that is important when evaluating the move and I’d like to take this opportunity to clarify. I said that by releasing Jansen “the Redskins took a cap hit of some $6 million.” That’s true. The Redskins will take…

    Jon Jansen’s release, a move that the Redskins announced earlier today, came as a surprise. Dan Snyder flew Redskins One to Michigan to pick up Jansen so that Jim Zorn could deliver to news to him in person. By releasing Jansen the Redskins took a cap hit of some $6 million.

  23. Redskins are the NFL’s most mediocre team

    The 2009 Washington Redskins will be about a .500 team. I say this with confidence and not because I possess a crystal ball that allows me to peer into the future and see events to come with clarity. It’s because I can see the past and recognize that a .500 team is what the Redskins…

    The Washington Redskins are in line to take a slap on the wrist for possibly jumping the gun in signing free agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. According to a Yahoo! Sports report, the NFL is investigating the Tennessee Titans’ complaint that the Redskins tampered with Haynesworth prior to the start of the free agency period.…
