  1. Redskins Eagles After Further Review

    Had the Washington Redskins managed to beat the Cincinnati Bengals last week or the St. Louis Rams in mid-October, yesterday’s 10-3 win over the Eagles would have been a landmark game with a legendary finish. It would have propelled them into a position to snag a spot in the playoffs by beating the 49ers next…

  3. Redskins Eagles 4th quarter

    14:06—Moss deep on the punt. A nice return but a pair of flags on the field will call it back. Still, OK field position at their own 30 for the Redskins. 12:56—Once again, Campbell shows his fancy footwork, picking up 19 on a scramble on third and 12. A three and out is averted and…

  4. Redskins Eagles 3rd quarter

    This just goes to show you that the Redskins can stay in virtually in game when they don’t come out and give it away in the first five minutes of play. It’s far, far from over but the Skins are waking up and playing better ball. The Eagles have 66 yards of offense. 14:05—The Eagles…

  5. Redskins Eagles 2nd quarter

    A big third and five coming up here for the Redskins. A few months ago, I would say it’s two-down territory as they’re at the Philly 35, but now you don’t know. 14:50—No decision to be made as the bubble screen to Moss gets blown up. As of now, they’re sending Suisham out to try…

  6. Redskins Eagles 1st quarter

    The wind is blowing in FedEx pretty hard. It’s unusual to see the streamers on the goal posts moving, but they are pretty steady from right to left as you look on TV. If you’re in the end zone where my brother is sitting, it’s right in your face. 13:52—The Redskins come out with a…

  11. Sunday: Redskins vs. Eagles live blog

    It’s the final 2008 trip to the FedEx Field press box, so the live blog will be of the quarterly update variety. If there are any instant updates necessary, you can follow them via the Twitter (great service, dumb name) box on the left sidebar. I’ll be tailgating with Redskins Examiner Mark Newgent and with…

  12. Have they hit rock bottom?

    A little behind here, but here goes with a quick prediction. I do think that the Redskins have a shot here. They hit rock bottom last week against the Bengals. They have no place to go but up. The question is have they rebounded enough to beat the hot Eagles? Probably not, unless a few…

    I don’t have time this morning to write a proper tribute to Slingin’ Sammy Baugh. To help you gain an appreciation of Baugh, here is my account of perhaps his greatest single game. It was a 1943 game against the Lions and Baugh was a monster on both sides of the ball, throwing four touchdown…

  17. Instability has a number–30

    In yesterday’s post about Jim Zorn, I asked the reader to consider how many changes the Redskins have had at four key areas of the team, the brains of the operation—head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and quarterback. I decided to quantify that thought and list the men who have held those positions since the…

  19. Zorn must stay

    Here I go again. After standing up for the status quo a couple of weeks ago in saying that Jason Campbell should stay behind center for the Washington Redskins, here I am calling for some more stability. Jim Zorn needs to be given at least one more year, preferably more, to make the Redskins into…
