    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…

    Comments Off on Get the scoop on the Skins

    I mentioned this a couple of months ago, when the start of the Redskins season seemed to be so very far away. Now that it’s just two days away, I thought I’d bring it up again. I have a spreadsheet that I use as a tool to break down the roster and easily access facts…

    Comments Off on Flashback Monday: Skins shatter Meadowlands jinx

    The 1991 Washington Redskins were a perfect storm composed of talented, determined players and a coaching staff pushing the right buttons at exactly the right moment. This Week 8 game is a great illustration of that as the RealRedskins.com Giants flashback series continues. From the pages of The Redskins From A to Z: Giants Stadium—The…

    Comments Off on 51 of 53

    At the risk of pulling a shoulder muscle, I do have to give myself a pat on the back for my final roster prediction. I got 51 of the 53 right. I had Mason and McMullen on and Hamilton and Jackson off. OK back to normal, non-self-congratulatory blogging.—Sent via Empower HTML Mail Viewer For BlackBerryhttp://www.mobylo.com/emv/…

    Comments Off on Roster gives peek at the Zorn Identity

    A look at the final roster for the Washington Redskins tells me that Jim Zorn is hoping for the best but preparing for the worst when it comes to the team’s offensive output in 2008. Zorn and company kept 24 offensive players and 26 defenders. They kept five wide receivers when most thought it was…

    Comments Off on Stirring a Frosty pot

    I have a moderate issue with former Redskins punter Derrick Frost complaining that the Redskins cut him just because Durant Brooks was a draft pick. He told Jason LaCanfora of the Post: “I feel like I was dealt with dishonestly. I want to thank Danny Smith for the three years he gave me here, and…

    Comments Off on Wade, Mason cut, all 10 picks make it

    This is going to be quick here as I’m on my way out the door to a wedding. As I mentioned earlier, all 10 draft picks made the final roster. The only one I had not making it was Rob Jackson, but he started off strong in the Hall of Fame game and continued to…
