    14:56—We have a new press box announcer and it seems that the PR staff is making a great effort to get the information that is spoken over the PA correct. That has been a challenge in the seven-plus seasons I’ve been sitting here and probably beyond that. 13:24—A great WCO-style pass from Campbell to Portis.…

    I’m going back to the past in order to try to pull off a live blog of the Redskins-Cardinals game. You guessed it, a dialup connection. I’m not promising anything, but I’m pretty sure I should be able to post live updates from the press box at FedEx. After all, dialup was an existing technology…

    Normally this space is given to recount great Redskins victories of the past. This one is about a gut-wrenching defeat. If you want to draw a scowl from any Redskins fan of my generation, there are two names that will do the trick. One is Clint Longley. The other is Mel Gray. To say that…

  7. Skins-Cards prediction: It’s a matter of time

    Sep 19, 2008, 2:29 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    To me, the Washington Redskins-Arizona Cardinals game boils down to this: Can the Redskins slow down the Arizona triple threat of Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald, and Anquan Boldin enough to be able to outscore the Cards? Warner is off to a hot start, bringing back the echoes of 1999. If a team had just one…

    In my combined years of blogging, doing a radio show, participating in football pools, and in other venues for predicting the outcomes of football games, I’m pretty sure that I’ve never picked the Washington Redskins to lose to the St. Louis/Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals. While the Cards have had their up periods and the Redskins haven’t spent…

The Washington Redskins rookie safety found out via text message just that morning that he would be making his first NFL start. The text was from Reed Doughty, the usual starter, informing Horton that…

    Crow is a popular dish around town today.

    The Redskins were almost done. After Reggie Bush returned a punt 55 yards for a touchdown near the end of the third quarter to give the Saints a 24-15 lead, the Redskins had gone three and out. The defense held and the Redskins took over at their own 18. They immediately went backwards in a…

    First, sorry about the problems with the live blog. It worked a couple of weeks ago, but today I just couldn’t keep a connection alive. And during the brief periods of connection that I did have, Word was freezing up on me. I have posted my not-so live blog and hopefully you can still get…

  18. Redskins Saints fourth quarter

    Pretty good field position for the Redskins after Bush draws a taunting penalty on the punt return. They’re set up at their own 38 with another critical drive. 13:59—Three and out. The defense has to step up again, after another poor punt by Brooks, 28 yards. 13:25—The Skins are not yet out of this, but…

    13:30—Redskins play tough two plays and the Thomas has nobody hear him on third and nine. I was about to write that the Saints have done, in the words of their former coach, diddly-poo offensively. 11:33—Another wide-open Saint on third down, this time David Patten. The Saints are on the move. 9:47—A guy makes his…

    FG Suisham 36Redskins 6, Saints 0 –The defense is playing Reggie Bush tough. I doubt he has a net of anything. 12:41—Jason Taylor’s first NFL sack is for a loss of 12 of second and nine. No escapeability for Brees there. 11:20—The Redskins defense is going to have to do it again. ARE fumbles the…
