    Comments Off on Flashback: Would a Skins win bode well for McCain?

    Those who are backing the Washington Redskins on Monday and Barak Obama on Tuesday face an interesting dilemma. A Redskins win on Monday night would an omen that does not bode well for those who want to see the electoral maps bathed in blue on Tuesday night. Here’s the deal: In nearly every presidential election…

    The Washington Redskins enter the second half of the 2008 season with plenty of classic good news/bad news scenarios. Good news: The Redskins are 6-2. No other NFC team has won more games; they are a half game out of the NFC East lead and a game up in the race for a Wild Card…

    Jim Zorn’s postgame presser wasn’t the only one at Ford Field with a tense moment. Lions coach Rod Marinelli told a reporter that he “wasn’t qualified” to evaluate the team’s defensive scheme. Detroit columnist Tom Kowalski thinks that the Lions would be doing Marinelli a favor if they fired him. The crux of his case:…

    I nearly had the Jim Zorn moment that Ryan O’Halloran of the Times experienced after the Lions game. In case you haven’t seen it, go to about the 2:00 mark in this video. You’ll see Zorn get annoyed at a series of followup questions by O’Halloran, who was trying to find out about Zorn’s thinking…

    Comments Off on Redskins-Lions: After Further Review

    I really liked the play calling on that first drive; Zorn’s script worked to near perfection. Play action to pass Moss, Portis up the middle, Portis off right end, sprinkle in a little Randle El, then the slip screen to Moss for a first and goal at the one. Then they missed connections on a…

    Joe Gibbs was 12-0 against the Detroit Lions. He beat them early in his career and he beat them late. He won close games and he won blowouts. The streak was in its greatest jeopardy on November 3, 1990 with about ten minutes left in the third quarter in the Silverdome. Barry Sanders had just…

    Comments Off on Is a blowout in the air?

    When the Washington Redskins embarked on this stretch of three “easy” games, the one that was supposed to carry them to 7-1 at midseason, I wasn’t buying it. My thinking was that in the three games there would be a loss, a close win, and a blowout win. We got the loss against the Rams…
