    Comments Off on Flashback Friday—Lombardi’s Skins vs. the Saints

    “Gentlemen,” the coach said, “it is not true that I can walk across the Potomac. Not even when it is frozen.” The assembled media mass at the Sheraton Carlton in downtown Washington laughed on cue. It’s not often that a man can have the Washington press corps, used to dealing with the world famous and…

  2. Skins will need a fast start on Sunday

    Sep 12, 2008, 7:26 AM EDT

    There is one line of thinking that says that the Washington Redskins will have to run the ball well in order to beat the New Orleans Saints at FedEx Field on Sunday. The game plan needs to be Portis right, Portis left and Betts up the middle. The objective is to keep the pressure off…

    It doesn’t get any better than this. A live blog of a real game from the stadium. I’ll be in the press box at FedEx Field sending along my observation as the game between the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints unfolds. It will be the old-school style of blog (is there an old school…

  6. The Tuesday Take—Misperception

    Comments Off on The Tuesday Take—Misperception

    To open up the 2007 season, the New York Giants went on the road to play the Dallas Cowboys. They lost by 45-35 in a game that was not as close as the final score indicated. Last Thursday the Redskins went on the road and lost to the Giants by nine points in a game…

    Comments Off on An opportunity

    The New Orleans Saints can make any quarterback look like Tony Romo. In 2007, the Saints defense allowed opposing QB’s a combined passer rating of 96.9. That’s just a shade behind the season rating posted of 97.4 posted by Mr. Jessica Simpson. This stat is somewhat astounding considering that the Saints played in the NFC…

    The Washington Redskins have their work cut out for them on Sunday. The New Orleans Saints come marching in to FedEx Field fresh off of a 24-20 win over Tampa Bay. The Saints scored on a 42-yard pass from Drew Brees to Reggie Bush midway through the fourth quarter to take the lead and they…

  12. 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…

    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…
