  1. A shotgun wedding

    Comments Off on A shotgun wedding

    Jason Campbell is going to be moving backwards in an effort to move the Washington Redskins’ offense forward. The quarterback will be lining up in the shotgun formation more often after finding a comfort level there in the late going against the Giants. Campbell had 15 attempts out of the shotgun against the Giants and…

    I don’t intend to make this into a media critic blog or anything like that, but the media coverage of the Redskins is a topic that seems to be of interest to many of the readers here, judging from the hit counts and comments that posts about the media generate. So, here’s one more quick…

  4. Doom and gloom from the Post

    Comments Off on Doom and gloom from the Post

    I expect the message board community and the postgame show callers to overreact after one season-opening loss. After the Washington Redskins’ loss to the New York Giants on Thursday, the knee-jerk brigade is led by the bench Campbell contingent and running close behind with torches lit and rope in hand are the fire Zorn mob,…

    Comments Off on Springs out

    The accidental kick in the calf that Shawn Springs received from teammate Marcus Washington in practice earlier this week turns out to be a real kick in the ass for the Skins’ defense. Word from the swamps of Jersey is that Springs is out for tonight’s game against the Giants. That moves Fred Smoot up…

    Comments Off on Redskins-Giants: Prediction

    Predicting NFL games is folly. It’s even worse when it comes to the first game of the season when one of the teams has a new coach with a new offensive scheme and the other has variables such as a possible Super Bowl hangover and the loss of two of its best players. But picking…

    Comments Off on 2008 Redskins: Stuck in the muddled middle

    A lot of things about the Washington Redskins will be different in 2008. There is the new head coach in Jim Zorn and a new offensive coordinator in Sherman Smith bringing in a new offense. The West Coast scheme has a new approach, increasing the emphasis on passing and utilizing less of the power running…

    Comments Off on Skins-Giants first take

    My initial impression of the upcoming Washington Redskins-New York Giants game is that this is a winnable game for the Redskins. That doesn’t mean that I’m going to pick them to win. I’m not sure about that just yet. But it doesn’t seem to me that this is as daunting a task as one normally…
