  1. Smoot Deadline Looming

    The Post and Times are both reporting that Fred Smoot and his agent are in the process of negotiating a new deal for the cornerback. Certainly, the Redskins want Smoot, who is in the last year of the four-year, $2.8 million dollar deal he signed as a second-round draft pick in 2001, and Smoot, by…

  2. Announcement: A Mirror Image

    Nov 5, 2004, 2:01 AM EDT

    I’ve started up a mirror site for this blog at http://redskinsblog.blogspot.com. Everything that is published here is going to be there and vice versa. Then why go with the mirror site? The mirror site is set up for blogs. Your best source for Redskins information and analysis, WarpathInsiders.com, from where my ramblings originate, simply isn’t…

  3. Brunell's QB Rating

    While I was on the way home from Sunday’s game, I was listening to Frank Herzog’s radio show. One thing that Herzog kept railing on was Mark Brunell’s quarterback rating of 66 for the day. That is a pretty bad rating, but thanks to Rat Boy, Webmaster extraordinaire at Warpathinsiders.com (from where these ramblings originate),…

    Ron Jaworski was the “Five Good Minutes” guest on PTI tonight and Wilbon and Tony K asked him about the Skins’ offense (emphasis added in both quotes): I though when Joe came in he did the right things; he got Clinton Portis, he got Mark Brunell, he had Rod Gardner and Laveranues Coles. But this…

    On NFL Live, Chris Mortensen was asked if Steve Spurrier would get another shot at the NFL since he’s decided not to return to the University of Florida: If the Miami Dolphins fire Dave Wannstadt and call Steve Spurrier and say, listen, we want you as our coach, I think it’s going to be tough…

  8. The "Streak" is Over!

    The “Streak” is Over This morning at about 11:30 Eastern time, the coincidental string involving the results of the Redskins last home game before the quadrennial Presidential elections and the results of those elections ended when John Kerry called George W. Bush to concede the election to the incumbent. As has been chronicled ad nauseum…

  9. Skins Own Lions

    The Redskins beat on Detroit like the Lions are rented felines. On October 3, 1965, the Lions beat the Redskins 14-10 at Tiger Stadium. After that, the Redskins got more than even; they ran off a streak of 18 wins against them before losing 15-10 to them in the Pontiac Silverdome in 2000. Included in…

    Let’s Beat This Horse Just a Bit More There seems to be a lot of confusion over what transpired in the wake of that game-changing penalty call on Sunday. After the touchdown, there was a brief conversation between the line judge, Bill Spyksma, the man who made the call and referee Tom White. Here is…

    Gibbs on Brunell: “In the second half, he had a courageous performance,” Gibbs said of Brunell. “I think he made a bunch of plays. I think we need to get everything else on the offense working together, including myself, and I think we can make plays to win games for us.” I hate to take…

    Predictions Analysis As many of you know, I don’t just trumpet my predictions when they are correct; I also razz them publicly when they’re off base. And that was the case this week. I’m not going to go through them one by one and award myself buckets. I’ve gone on long enough tonight. I’m giving…

  14. Advantages of a Depleted Defense

    Wow, talk about being given a lemon and turning it into lemonade. Gregg Williams says that the rash injuries to the defensive backfield (plus Sean Taylor’s deactivation for this game) has helped make the unit stronger, according to an article according to the Post’s Jason La Canfora. Players have been forced to perform in different…

  15. Taylor Must Sit

    Taylor Should Sit I was going to write an entry strongly questioning Joe Gibbs’ decision to bench Sean Taylor for Sunday’s upcoming game. DWI is a serious offense besides being a dangerous, dumb thing to do. However, it’s not like he robbed a bank or committed a violent act (albeit the potential for a violent…
