    Sep 16, 2008, 9:04 PM EDT

    Chris Horton was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The Washington Redskins rookie safety found out via text message just that morning that he would be making his first NFL start. The text was from Reed Doughty, the usual starter, informing Horton that…

    Crow is a popular dish around town today. Everyone from the elite media to the sports yappers at the bars and on the radio and those who pound away on the message boards is now reconsidering their harsh criticism they heaped on all things burgundy and gold after the Washington Redskins’ loss to the Giants…

  4. Redskins Saints Turning Point

    Comments Off on Redskins Saints Turning Point

    The Redskins were almost done. After Reggie Bush returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown near the end of the third quarter to give the Saints a 24-15 lead, the Redskins had gone three and out. The defense held and the Redskins took over at their own 18. They immediately went backwards in a…

    First, sorry about the problems with the live blog. It worked a couple of weeks ago, but today I just couldn’t keep a connection alive. And during the brief periods of connection that I did have, Word was freezing up on me. I have posted my not-so live blog and hopefully you can still get…

    Comments Off on Redskins Saints fourth quarter

    Pretty good field position for the Redskins after Bush draws a taunting penalty on the punt return. They’re set up at their own 38 with another critical drive. 13:59—Three and out. The defense has to step up again, after another poor punt by Brooks, 28 yards. 13:25—The Skins are not yet out of this, but…

    Comments Off on Redskins Saints third quarter

    13:30—Redskins play tough two plays and the Thomas has nobody hear him on third and nine. I was about to write that the Saints have done, in the words of their former coach, diddly-poo offensively. 11:33—Another wide-open Saint on third down, this time David Patten. The Saints are on the move. 9:47—A guy makes his…

    Comments Off on Redskins Saints second quarter

    FG Suisham 36Redskins 6, Saints 0 –The defense is playing Reggie Bush tough. I doubt he has a net of anything. 12:41—Jason Taylor’s first NFL sack is for a loss of 12 of second and nine. No escapeability for Brees there. 11:20—The Redskins defense is going to have to do it again. ARE fumbles the…

    Comments Off on Redskins-Saints first quarter

    12:21—The Skins are on the move, with Campbell completing his first three passes, the last two for first downs. He didn’t release either of the passes quickly, but they found their targets. 11:24—Unlike last week when they were able to save their timeouts, the Skins burn one early on a third and short play. 11:09—Malcolm…

    The New Orleans Saints’ #1 receiver Marques Coltson isn’t the only starter who won’t see action on Sunday when they travel to FedEx Field to play the Washington Redskins. Three defensive players who started the Saints’ 24-20 win over the Bucs will sit out the Redskins game with injuries. Linebacker Scott Fujita, who had a…

    Comments Off on Skins will need a fast start on Sunday

    There is one line of thinking that says that the Washington Redskins will have to run the ball well in order to beat the New Orleans Saints at FedEx Field on Sunday. The game plan needs to be Portis right, Portis left and Betts up the middle. The objective is to keep the pressure off…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday—Lombardi’s Skins vs. the Saints

    “Gentlemen,” the coach said, “it is not true that I can walk across the Potomac. Not even when it is frozen.” The assembled media mass at the Sheraton Carlton in downtown Washington laughed on cue. It’s not often that a man can have the Washington press corps, used to dealing with the world famous and…
