    You can reach Rich Tandler by email at WarpathInsiders@comcast.netWhen a team scores a lot of points and gives up a lot of points and wins like, for instance, in the Bucs’ Week 10 win over the Redskins, that is generally considered to be a great victory.

    Fourth QuarterThis game is being placed squarely on the shoulders of the defense, evidently. If they tackle like Walt Harris did when he had Williams for a five-yard loss but let him get away, that’s a shaky proposition.Time for the D to step up here on fourth down. Let’s see.That was a rather cocky call…

    Third QuarterThis is a good time to get an offensive drive going. A good percentage of the fans are not yet back in their seats, not much disruptive crowd noise.Portis being out of this game is not good, obviously, but not a disaster with a two-touchdown lead. If the defense does its job, Betts will…

    Second QuarterRenaldo Wynn is one of the truly under appreciated guys on this team. It looks like he’s out with a broken arm; if you have to go out on a cart for an arm injury, it can’t be good. Cornelius Griffin missed the first game and the Bucs are being reminded of that. He’s…

    Gregg Williams—Joe Gibbs, like all coaches, hates distractions and the potential departure of Williams could have turned into a huge one. The Houston Texans had already requested an interview with him for their vacant coaching position and, certainly, more calls would be coming soon. The three-year, $8 million contract is really a one-year deal as…

    For a moment, with 1:21 left in the third quarter and the Eagles leading 20-17, the Redskins’ playoff life passed before their collective eyes. On a third and eight play from the Eagles’ 32, Mike McMahon dropped back to pass as the Redskins blitzed. The Eagles picked it up as receiver Billy McMullen was getting…

    Fourth QuarterA couple of flags perhaps helping the Redskins field position, if they can take advantage by stopping the Eagles.Stopped single handedly—with the tip to himself–by Lamar Marshall.
