    The Redskins’ coaching staff has a pile of resumes that would make Monster.com jealous. At the top, of course, is the only active Hall of Fame performer in major professional sports, Joe Gibbs. Reporting to him are two former head coaches, and a total of six who have held a coordinator position. Thirteen of them…

    According to reports on ESPN.com and elsewhere, Joe Gibbs will hand the play calling duties over to new offensive coordinator Al Saunders next season. This is not a particularly shocking development. Everybody knew that Daniel Snyder was not going to cut Saunders checks worth $2 million a year to be one of those quality control…

    Notes on the News: Should LaVar Arrington wind up staying with the Redskins, there will be all kinds of criticism of the writers who have said that there was virtually no chance he would be back in 2006 (including at least one who said that using words from Arrington’s own mouth). If a contract renegotiation…

    The NFL is a merciless business. If you have a weakness, the other team will exploit that soft spot immediately and often. The Redskins went into Sunday’s game in Seattle with a glaring weakness. They have one of the league’s best receivers in Santana Moss. The receiver that lines up opposite Moss is merely filling…

    Third QuarterIn Arizona, the Redskins were trailing and took the second-half kickoff and pounded it down the field for a critical touchdown. This ain’t Arizona, that’s for sure, but the Redskins need something similar here.Brunell is really struggling with his throws.

    Second Quarter.Seattle’s Williams has been playing with fire all afternoon and he finally got burned. Perhaps a spark for the offense?Great call on the sneak for the first down with the quick snap.

    First QuarterI spent seven hours in the car driving my son back to college today. Switching among sports talk stations on my XM Radio, I didn’t find a single commentator—not one—who thought the Redskins could win. This talk of the Redskins being too beaten up to even compete has really taken hold as the national…
