  1. Gibbs II Greatest Hits

    Gibbs II, we hardly knew ye. It seems like just yesterday that the limo pulled up to Redskins Park and, amid ecstatic fans and admiring media, Joe Gibbs got out and the Redskins have been saved. It seemed like it was just a matter of time—and not very much of it—before the collection of three…

  3. Surprising, Not Shocking

    An hour or so before the Chicago game, four days after Joe Gibbs had made what he called his worst coaching mistake, the double time out gaffe in the game against Buffalo, and three days after Sean Taylor’s funeral, I was sitting around in the press box with a few of the team’s beat writers,…

    Cinderella stories are great. Tales of an individual or, in the case of the 2007 Washington Redskins, a team overcoming adversity and long odds are uplifting and inspiring. The Skins’ run to the playoffs is one that will resound forever in team lore. That’s all well and good, but there’s one problem here. In the…

  6. Was the Season a Success?

    Every season, there are 31 NFL teams—all but the one that hoists the Lombardi Trophy—that have to look back and try to figure out if their seasons were a success. For some, such as the Saints and Bears, the answer is obviously no. Those two teams were in the NFC Championship Game last year and…

    They couldn’t find anyone better than an ex-Mariner (Phillies pitcher Jamie Moyer) to raise the 12th man flag? What, was Jim Zorn busy? 13:31—An uninspiring three and out to start things by the Redskins. 12:11—Seattle completes a couple of passes to move into Redskins territory. Bobby Engram, snags one for 18. He was their leading…

    Not much time to go into too much tonight. I’m getting ready to go on the second, Southern leg of my three games in five days football odyssey, hitting the road for Jacksonville at 3 AM. Instead of the usual review of the game blog, just a few points: Nobody should pinch Todd Collins—He’s living…

    Pregame –The Cowboys were booed lustily when they took the field, just as they have been for the past 40+ years. Good to see that some things never change. –The Cowboy contingent here is quite sizeable, although I’ve seen much, much worse. The Skins have a solid home field advantage despite some pockets of blue.…

    Yes, I know you’re not supposed to look ahead, play ‘em one at a time, focus on the task at hand. But I’m not playing this Sunday and so far Joe Gibbs has not responded to my offer to help with the game plan. So I think that no damage will be done if I…

    The subject of the week is who will play for the got-it-all-wrapped-up Cowboys this Sunday against the gotta-win Redskins. Wade Phillips has been asked, Joe Gibbs has been asked, the players on both teams have been asked. Various media members are asking each other. However, that’s only part of the question involving the Cowboys’ approach…

    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…
