  1. What Redskins Fans Have to be Thankful For

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Redskins-Eagles Third Quarter

    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…

  6. Skins-Eagles Second Quarter

    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…

  9. WP: Only Four?

    Nov 20, 2004, 11:32 PM EDT

    Near the end of an otherwise excellent article about Patrick Ramsey’s second chance at the starting job, Nunyo Demaso makes this curious assertion: Gibbs, who has changed starting quarterbacks only four times as an NFL coach, has not spoken to Ramsey about the long-term stakes for the quarterback. I’m assuming that he’s referring to changes…

  13. Delhomme: A Correction

    Nov 20, 2004, 2:12 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    In a post on Wednesday, I incorrectly said that Jake Delhomme didn’t take an NFL snap before the 2002 season. He started two games late in the 1999 season, going 42 for 76 (55.3%) for 521 yards (6.9 per attempt), 3 TD’s and 5 INT’s. It’s certainly possible that Schottenheimer could have coveted Delhomme based…

    In Paul Woody’s article in Wednesday’s Richmond Times-Dispatch, he had this rather peculiar entry At the end of the 2001 season, the Redskins were closing in on an 8-8 record, had millions in salary-cap space for 2002 and the name they had on their drawing board at quarterback, according to an NFL source, was an…

    I guess it’s kind of dumb to be dismissive of the opinions of someone like Pete Prisco of CBS Sportsline.com and then continue to comment on them, but I must. Prisco was on the Sports Bash with Eric Kuselias (an excellent show, by the way; EK is an top-notch host). Kuselias asked him who was…
