  1. Redskins Record is Safe

    Nov 28, 2004, 9:48 PM EDT

    For the upcoming print edition of Warpath, I wrote a filler piece about the Redskins-Giants game in 1966 that Washington won 72-41. I wrote that the 113 points scored still stands as an NFL record for a game. The Browns and Bengals nearly rendered that statement false before it saw the light of day. Their…

  2. Redskins-Steelers Fourth Quarter (In progress)

    Nov 28, 2004, 8:14 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Quick Analysis: The Redskins hung in there in a game that could have been a blowout. They were much more aggressive offensively than last week, although they did pretty much abandon the running game early. Ramsey suffered at least five drops and his one interception was a desperation pass after nearly having his head taken…

  3. Skins-Steelers Third Quarter

    Nov 28, 2004, 7:29 PM EDT

    The Redskins WR’s seem to be too worried about getting the PI flag and not worried enough about catching the ball anyway. They’re making the throwing the flag motion after almost every pass. Redskins get second-half kickoff. If they’re going to get back into it, now’s the time. Cowher is 86-1-1 when his team has…

  4. Skins-Steelers Second Quarter

    I’m going to go ahead and post this during commercials, and have the title read “in progress” until the quarter is over. Another big punt return by Randle El, this one 43 yards, so Pitt starts in Washington territory again at the 40. Steelers convert a fourth down after a nice ankle takcle by Taylor…

  5. Gameblog: Skins-Steelers First Quarter

    Nov 28, 2004, 6:07 PM EDT

    Sack leads to a three and out for Pittsburgh’s first series. Roethisberger rolled out on third down but missed on the pass. Ramsey harried by blitz on second and third downs and Skins go three and out. Need to find a way to slow down the blitz. It looked like they had a nice draw…

  6. Redskins Gameblog Back on Sunday

    I kind of enjoyed doing the blog “live” during last Sunday’s game and, since me enjoying it is the sole criteria for something being done around here, I’m going to do it again. I’ll update quarter by quarter or more frequently if events warrant doing so. The only glitch last week was that the mirror…

  8. Audios Ola

    Nov 27, 2004, 3:08 PM EDT

    When you watch Ola Kimrin, who virtually just gotten off of a plane from Sweden, kick two field goals that provided the game-winning margin in a 13-10 win over the Bears you have to wonder why the Redskins shelled out a $1.6 million signing bonus to John Hall before the 2003 season. Of course, we…

And while the Steelers won the game I didn’t think that Roethlisberger…

  10. Arrington

    Nov 26, 2004, 6:51 PM EDT

    What has made the turnaround of the Redskins’ defense even more amazing is the fact that it’s been accomplished without the unit’s most accomplished player, Lavar Arrington. What was supposed to be a two-week injury to his knee has turned into eight weeks going on nine that he’s been inactive. He had some arthioscopic surgery…

  15. Daly Dead On

    Nov 23, 2004, 2:32 AM EDT

    Dan Daly hits the nail on the head more often than any columnist out there who covers the Redskins. I like Wilbon and Boswell OK, but the former is a TV star with an agenda and Bears fan to boot, and the latter is one of the best baseball writers in the business who occasionally…

  16. Redskins-Eagles Fourth Quarter

    Nov 22, 2004, 12:00 AM EDT

    Going backwards after first and goal at the ten. False start on Brown, hold on Samuels, two incompletes, false start on Samuels. Third and goal at the 30 and Gardner drops the ball. 48-yard FG missed. Then the Skins lose a challenge on the spot of the ball after Pinkston stepped out of bounds before…

  17. Redskins-Eagles Third Quarter

    Nov 21, 2004, 11:08 PM EDT

    Back to back sacks of McNabb to open up second half! Wynn (coverage) and Haley (up the middle). Owens’ first catch nets 14, but it’s on a third and 19. Another false start—this time a second and five becomes a second and ten. This one was on Kozlowski. WR screen was awfully close to being…

  18. Skins-Eagles Second Quarter

    Nov 21, 2004, 10:38 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Second Quarter Another first down for Washington, another five-yard penalty. They overcame the first, but not the second. Two series and no downfield throws, just screens. The Redskins need to play virtually a perfect game and they need to take a few chances to pull this one out. Not doing well on either front so…

    Sorry this is late getting posted. Blogspot was down for new posts. Portis thrown for losses on first two plays. Ramsey’s going to have to make them pay for stacking up. Runs up the middle seem to be more effective, got a first down in two carries up there. Two Eagle penalties—a holding that converted…
