    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…

  3. 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…

  7. 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…

  15. Dumb and Smarter

    Nov 17, 2004, 12:28 AM EDT

    In an SI.com article: Don Banks is an idiot and makes perfect sense in the same sentence. If Gibbs comes back for another fun-filled year in Washington — and after the mini-drama that was the Spurrier denouement, I don’t think anything’s a lock — I’d be willing to bet that he requires further assistance on…

    I didn’t have a chance to do any quick hits on this game, but I was thinking that exact same thing that Michael Wilbon was during this moment that he talked about in his Monday column.: Here’s all you need to know about the Redskins quarterback situation: With six minutes to play in the third…

    I was going to just put up an empty bucket as I was way off on this game and not spend much time on it, but I promised a couple of Bengals fans who wrote that I would eat my full serving of crow. None of my predictions won any buckets, so I won’t post…
