    Bold Predictions Redskins vs BucsThere just isn’t much sizzle here.The first time these two teams met on October 9, 1977, the two teams combined for nine fumbles, eight turnovers and 14 penalties. The Redskins won this excruciatingly boring affair 10-0 and even Billy Kilmer, the winning quarterback complained afterward that the game was dull and…

  3. Redskins at Midseason: State of the Team

    At 5-3 at the midway point of the 2005 season, the Redskins aren’t exactly sitting pretty, but they’re not sitting Roseanne Barr either. By virtue of their Week 2 win over Dallas, they would make the playoffs if the season ended today. The season doesn’t end today and that’s a good thing for the Redskins.…

    In this space earlier this week, I took a bit of a shot at Philadelphia coach Andy Reid for not dealing with the Terrell Owens situation: Apparently, Reid is continuing his laissez-faire approach to Owens and letting TO be TO and did not comment on the comments by Trotter and Kearse. Reid takes the “they’re…

    When two teams with identical records meet in a game that marks the midpoint of the NFL season, there is usually a checklist of factors to consider when trying to figure out who is going to win. In the case of this Sunday’s night game between the Redskins and Eagles, that checklist doesn’t tell us…

    Fourth Quarter Misdirection: The Redskins haven’t run a single play to try to make the Giants pay for being aggressive. Maybe something has to work for you to base the misdirection off of and nothing has worked for the Redskins all day. Regardless, at some point when the game is still somewhat in doubt it…

    Third QuarterMicroscopic: Well, I said before the game that they might have to reinvent the quarterback rating system for Mark Brunell after this one. I was right, but in the wrong direction. At halftime his rating sits at a punt 19.3. Ever hear of no place to go but up?Powerless: The Redskins had to know…

    Second Quarter Eventually: The Giants were going to get a touchdown. The offense just has to get something going and they probably will. Still, you have to play under control and not let Barber bust those big runs. They get the pass rush going and then, boom, they’re getting burned on the long run again.…

    Among the push back received here in response to the (Truly) Bold Prediction piece forecasting an easy Redskin win was, not so fast, the Giants “create a lot of turnovers”. On the face of it, that’s true. They lead the NFC with 19 takeaways, getting nine interceptions and 10 fumbles. Let’s take a closer look,…
