    According to sources at Redskins Park: “Randy Thomas made it through another practice today and will start at right guard against NY on Sunday. Gibbs added that Randy Thomas is a’tough sucker’ and ‘those will be the kind of guys we build around’”

    There was more on the Giants’ injury situation in theNew York Daily News: “With DE Chuck Wiley on injured reserve with a torn ACL, the Giants signed veteran Regan Upshaw, a 6-4, 265-pounder who was with the Redskins last season and played six games for Coughlin in Jacksonville in 1999.

  4. The Giants' Thinning Blue Line

    There is nothing more devastating to a football team than multiple injuries at the same position. That’s what the Giants are facing on their defensive line. From the New York Post: “Only one member of the line that started the season, tackle Fred Robbins, will be available for Sunday’s game against the Redskins at FedEx…

  6. Who Are These Guys?

    In last week’s Gameblog (which, by the way, won’t be going the next two weeks as I go to the home games) I asked, “Who are these guys” when watching the play of Ryan Boschetti and Chris Clemons agains the Steelers. Paul Woody answered my questions in this morning’s Times-Dispatch “Ryan Boschetti, for instance, is…

  9. Portis Benched?

    Dec 2, 2004, 4:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    In a fantasy football article on NFL.com Gil Brandt says the following I don’t like anybody on the Redskins at all. RB Clinton Portis is supposedly not going to start — Ladell Betts will. Be sure to check that for yourself . That’s the sum total of Brandt’s report, so there are no sources cited.…

  10. Moving Towards Getting a GM?

    Dec 2, 2004, 12:55 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A good article by Len Shapiro in this morning’s Post takes a look at what’s wrong with the Redskins. I particularly liked it because one of the themes presented is that the team needs a strong general manager. “To me, their big issue is player acquisition,’ said a longtime AFC personnel executive who is assigned…

  14. Samuels' Cap Hit

    I mentioned the cap hit that Chris Samuels’ contract might create in the coming season and promised an explaination. Here it is, according to PC, the resident salary cap wizard at this blog’s home site, WarpathInsiders.com. Remember that Samuels can void the last year of his contract (2006) at any time. IMHO he WILL do…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. Skins-Steelers Third Quarter

    Nov 28, 2004, 7:29 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    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…

  19. Skins-Steelers Second Quarter

    Nov 28, 2004, 6:42 PM EDT

    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…

  20. 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…
