  1. Redskins-Bears Live Blog from FedEx Field

    Comments Off

    Live from the press box at FedEx Field Right now, just about an hour before kickoff, there are more media members in the stadium than fans. It’s right around freezing now and I can vouch for that. As I made my way through the media parking lot to the bus that takes me, the Redskins…

  2. Insignificant But Not Unimportant

    Let’s be clear on one thing—Joe Gibbs’ decision to call a second consecutive timeout as Rian Lindell was lining up for a game-winning field goal did not cost the Redskins the game. Lindell had nailed his first boot, the one negated by the first timeout, with plenty to spare and there was almost no way…

    Pregame The atmosphere here still says NFL game day, but there clearly is a difference. As I’m typing this, the Redskins band is playing a rendition of Hail to the Redskins in about three-quarters time. That led into a nice video tribute to Sean, one that had everyone in the press box watching with somber…

  6. Taylor took his case to the people

    A lot of media sites are posting stories about Sean Taylor that were written at various points during his tragically brief NFL career. The focus is on his arrests, skipping the rookie symposium and other such moments. I have one here that I wrote on the first day of training camp the August following his…

    I knew Sean Taylor about as well as 95% of the other media types who have frequented Redskins Park for the past few years, which is to say not at all. There were the occasional group press conferences, usually at some point during training camp, where Taylor would playfully deflect our queries about all but…

  12. Fletcher, Clements to DC? Yes and No.

    Comments Off

    Reports that the Redskins have locked up Buffalo linebacker London Fletcher are all over the place, from the Post to SI.com. Of course since the free agency period doesn’t start until Friday at midnight no deal can be done. “Officially” the Redskins and Fletcher’s agents can’t even talk about a contract until then. But there…

  14. Skins Could Learn From Playoff Teams

    Jan 23, 2007, 3:28 PM EDT

    The NFL playoffs are one game away from being concluded. They occurred, of course, without the participation of the Redskins, an all too frequent occurrence in the past decade and a half. With the coaches being involved in season-ending meetings and the players scattering to their homes and various vacation destinations it’s doubtful that they…

  16. Quick Hits: Keep Portis and #6

    Sometimes the best deals are the ones that you don’t make. One in that category certainly would be any trade that removes Clinton Portis from the Redskins roster. It’s good to know that Ladell Betts can tote the rock, but he isn’t the home run threat that Portis is and you’d like your prime back…

    The autopsies on the Redskins season, which suffered a premature death, are rolling in from many different sources. The Post did a three-part series covering the personnel acquisition system (or lack thereof), the failure of Joe Gibbs and Al Saunders mesh their offensive philosophies, and the collapse of Gregg Williams’ defense. Thom Loverro at the…

  20. The Defense: Tweak it or Nuke it?

    Jan 3, 2007, 4:09 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    This just in—the Redskins defense stunk in 2006. In almost any way you look at it the performance of the unit was among the worst in the NFL. They were #27 in rushing yards, #23 in passing yards and #31 in total yards. Washington had only 19 sacks; the second-worst team in this regard, the…
