  1. Redskins Cardinals quick take

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals quick take

    The biggest complaint coming out of the Valley of the Sun today is that the Cardinals were “robbed” of a touchdown when the referee called a delay of game penalty on a fourth and one play on Arizona’s first offensive possession. Ken Whisenhunt decided to go for it at the Washington 41 and Arizona came…

  2. Redskins Cardinals after further review

    Sep 22, 2008, 10:37 AM EDT

    The Redskins clearly were better than the Cardinals on Sunday. Not a lot better. Arizona wasn’t outclassed, or even outmanned. But the Redskins played better football, smarter football, more opportunistic football. Not by a lot, but by enough. The numbers reflect this. Jason Campbell wasn’t a lot better than Kurt Warner but he did complete…

  4. Redskins Cardinals fourth quarter

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals fourth quarter

    14:55—Not a great punt by Brooks, but good for 35 and no return. 13:34—Another offside on Taylor buys Arizona a down. Instead of third and eight after a five-yard pass it’s second and eight. 12:59—Who says that Rogers has no hands. A great pick after a nice tip by Torrence. Not a bad runback either,…

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals third quarter

    To bring out a Capt. Obvious cliché here, it’s anyone’s ballgame. Campbell seems to have cooled off since completing his first eight passes. He’s a streaky passer and if he can get it going, the Skins will be fine. If his hot streak isn’t due until next week or before the Cards lay a couple…

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals second quarter

    15:00—We’ll see here how Zorn reacts to a takeaway in opponent’s territory. I like going for the TD right off the bat. 14:49—Devin Thomas now has two passes thrown to him and two PI calls. No offsetting call here and it’s first and 20. Zorn didn’t go for it all but It was a deep…

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals first quarter

    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.…

    It seems to be quite a bit warmer today than the 80-ish that was forecast. Favors tde Skins in the white unis. Dialup looks good, check back at halftime. —Sent via Empower HTML Mail Viewer For BlackBerryhttp://www.mobylo.com/emv/ Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

    Comments Off on Live Blog—Back to the past

    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…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday—Mel Gray

    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…

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

    Comments Off on Skins-Cards prediction: It’s a matter of time

    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…

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals First Glance

    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…
