    A few Christmas morning nuggets here before finishing the wrapping of the presents under the tree (hey, who says you can’t wait until the last minute?) I didn’t see something about Sundays game that Mort reported last night on ESPN’s pregame repeated anywhere in the print editions this morning. If you recall, Brad Childress was…

    14:55—Heyer is starting in place of Wade. No indication that the latter is not in good health, he’s active. They must like the way he handled Strahan last week. 14:00—A three passes and out sequence for the Redskins. Kind of sloppy looking. 13:02—A delayed blitz forces and overthrown and Smoot gets the pick. He runs…

  4. Skins’ Fate in Their Hands

    It’s win out and in for the Redskins. If they beat Minnesota tonight and then beat the Cowboys next Sunday at RFK, the Redskins will be in the playoffs. They got the help they needed today when New Orleans lost to Philadelphia. The Skins can only be the sixth seed as they can’t finish with…

  6. Report—Gibbs Offered Extension

    I’m going to be posting from time to time today, an extended pregame blog, keeping an eye on the two games that have the greatest effect on the Redskins today, the Giants at Buffalo and Philly at New Orleans. There has been some breaking news this morning, although hardly anything surprising or stunning. Chris Mortensen…

  8. Giants—After Further Review

    Fishing a few nuggets out of last night’s stream of consciousness. Pregame –Dallas lost which, as I said earlier, is OK with me. If—and it’s a big if—the Redskins’ chances of making the playoffs comes down to the last game, I’d rather it mean something to the Cowboys. After last week’s near-miss against the Lions…

  9. How I’ll Spend My Winter Vacation

    I don’t go into personal matters much here. My daughter doesn’t play field hockey and my dogs don’t do much besides sleep and bark at the UPS driver and my life is, by and large, blissfully boring. But I’m pretty pumped up about my upcoming winter vacation. It’s about football, so here’s the itinerary: Sunday,…

  12. Redskins-Giants Fourth Quarter

    Dec 17, 2007, 5:53 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Giants just past the 50 as the fourth quarter begins. 14:51—Manning is still enjoying too much time to throw. Skins aren’t getting enough pressure from the front four and the secondary isn’t getting good enough coverage. 13:21—Nice play by Smoot, knocking a TD away from Burress. Third and 10 at the 21. 13:15—Not sure what…

  13. Strahan retires

    I just posted the following to the blog archives the other day. The article was written immediately after the Redskins beat the Giants in Week 15. Obviously, that was before the Giants’ improbable run to the Super Bowl title. Still, it didn’t change my mind about the guy: On the other hand, I used to…

    I didn’t get a chance to fit this in but I was going to mention that after disliking Jeremy Shockey for years, I now respect him a great deal. He has grown up and has managed to channel his energy away from being obnoxious to being a hustling, aggressive player who, like most of his…

  15. Redskins-Giants Third Quarter

    Dec 17, 2007, 4:08 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Portis has 16 carries for 88 yards after a slow start. If he hits near those same numbers in the second half and the Redskins continue to play with what I’ll call intelligent aggression, the Skins will win. Oh, and the D needs to adjust to NY’s halftime adjustments. I neglected to mention that Betts…

  16. Redskins Giants Second Quarter

    Dec 17, 2007, 3:10 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    14:10—Collins is now 0-8. He’s been getting some pressure, but he’s been misfiring with time to throw, too. 13:49—A good stick by Blades stops Jacobs in his tracks. 13:10—Jacobs drops another pass. At least Manning is getting the ball close enough to his receivers for them to drop it. 12:44—Collins’ first completion is a good…

  17. Redskins-Giants First Quarter

    Dec 17, 2007, 2:12 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    14:49—Nearly a big pick on the first play of the game as Smooth and Landry both had a shot. 14:09—The Redskins are doing a lot of blitzing, trying to rattle Manning. So far, it’s working. 14:00—Smoot makes a nice play on the receiver on a pass that was held up by some wind. He disturbed…
