  1. Dallas final thoughts

    Comments Off on Dallas final thoughts

    I could be wrong—I have been before and I will be again—but I really think that the Redskins have a chance of beating Dallas today. I’m not talking about just your generic “on any given Sunday” chance, but a real “we have arrived and we’re going to be a force in this division” chance. Dealing…

  3. 12.10.83—Redskins invade Dallas ready for war

    Comments Off on 12.10.83—Redskins invade Dallas ready for war

    Since the game account from Dallas in ’83 has drawn such favorable response, I thought I’d lift this little blub about what was going on the day before the game from my book Gut Check. Enjoy. The Redskins arrived in Dallas today ready to do battle with the Cowboys—and it showed. About two dozen Redskins…

    Comments Off on Flashback Friday—12.11.83 The Game

    Texas Stadium–This contest was hyped as much as any regular season game in the history of the league. CBS Sports was promoting the meeting between the two 12-2 teams as simply “The Game”. A Dallas win would give the Cowboys the division title and home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The Washington Redskins would…

  7. Prediction—Redskins will need a strong air game

    Comments Off on Prediction—Redskins will need a strong air game

    I’m usually a pound the rock guy, especially when playing a quality opponent on the road. Not this Sunday. If the Washington Redskins are going to have a shot at beating the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, they will have to pass early, often, and effectively. The game will be on the arm of Jason Campbell,…

    The Washington Redskins are back on the road on Sunday so that means that truly live blogging returns to RealRedskins.com. Kickoff is at 4:15 so we’ll get started with the Cover It Live software at about 3:30 or so. That will enable you to submit comments and give your thoughts as the game unfolds. If…

  11. Cowboys-Redskins First Take—A Confession

    Comments Off on Cowboys-Redskins First Take—A Confession

    In 2006, along with many, I would have bet the mortgage that Terrell Owens would not be a problem for the Washington Redskins to worry about as they prepared to face the Dallas Cowboys in 2008. The only question would have been if the Cowboys still were dealing with the radioactive remnants of the inevitable…

  13. Taylor out vs. Dallas

    Comments Off on Taylor out vs. Dallas

    Jason Taylor will miss the Redskins’ game against Dallas, Jim Zorn said today. He was kicked in the calf in the game against Arizona and some swelling and pain came overnight. He went to the hospital and underwent a relatively minor procedure to drain the area. There will be no long-term problems, but he won’t…

  14. Redskins Cardinals after further review

    Comments Off on Redskins Cardinals after further review

    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…

  16. Redskins Cardinals quick take

    Sep 22, 2008, 12:08 PM EDT

    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…

  19. Redskins Cardinals fourth quarter

    Sep 21, 2008, 8:02 PM EDT

    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,…

  20. Redskins Cardinals third quarter

    Sep 21, 2008, 7:19 PM EDT

    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…
