  1. Flashback Friday: Gibbs vs. Buddy, Sonny vs. Norm

    Oct 3, 2008, 5:00 AM EDT

    Gibbs vs. Buddy While Joe Gibbs vs. Buddy Ryan, the Eagles’ coach from 1986 through 1990, never had quite the zip to it as Parcells or Landry facing off against Gibbs, it was an interesting if short-lived rivalry nonetheless. While he rarely talked about it, Gibbs was not a fan of Ryan’s style. Buddy’s modus…

    I’ve updated my ranking of the Redskins’ 30 primary players—but you can’t get it here. It’s available exclusively on the RealRedskins.com Analysis spreadsheet. That’s my information-packed report that goes out every week. It’s packed with information about the Redskins’ roster and it has a few other popular features as well. Among those is the Redskins…

    Here we are again. For the third time in the last four years, the Redskins have started a season at 3-1. In 2005 and 2007 the Skins also reached the quarter pole with a .750 winning percentage. Three years ago the Redskins opened up with an ugly win over the Bears and then played horribly…

  8. Zorn and Allen leading the cheers

    Someone on You Tube cobbled together the three cheers “Hip-Hip Hoory!” that Jim Zorn led after the Redskins’ win over Dallas with one that George Allen did. We don’t know if this follows a win over the Cowboys or not, but it doesn’t really matter. Considering that, by all accounts, Zorn had no idea that…

    Just when I thought it was safe to give Terrell Owens a pat on the back, he puts a knife in the back of his team. I received some heat last week after I proclaimed that TO had grown up some and that the chances of him causing a disruption on the Cowboys were very…

    Make no mistake about it, the Washington Redskins’ 26-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys was no fluke. The better team won. Not the better collection of talent. Jerry Jones has pieced together an excellent mosaic of individual talent. They are big and fast on defense, quick and sharp on offense. The Redskins aren’t as impressive…

    The Washington Redskins’ 26-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys was the first time in 37 years that a Redskins coach has won in his first trip to Dallas. The previous occasion came in 1971 when George Allen took his team to the Cotton Bowl and came out with a 20-16 win. The parallels don’t end…

    With the score tied at 17, the Washington Redskins appeared to have been robbed of a touchdown when a highly questionable holding call negated a Clinton Portis touchdown run. Casey Rabach didn’t stay close enough to Jay Ratliff to hold him but #61 drew the flag anyway. After an incompletion it was second and goal…

    I could be wrong—I have been before and I will be again—but I really think that the Redskins have a chance of beating Dallas today. I’m not talking about just your generic “on any given Sunday” chance, but a real “we have arrived and we’re going to be a force in this division” chance. Dealing…

    Since the game account from Dallas in ’83 has drawn such favorable response, I thought I’d lift this little blub about what was going on the day before the game from my book Gut Check. Enjoy.
