  1. Redskins-Giants Pregame

    –It’s very difficult to watch a Dallas Cowboys game knowing that a Dallas win benefits the Redskins. I really can’t root for the Cowboys, just can’t do it. I just look at it as a win-win situation; if Dallas loses, it’s a good day and if they help the Redskins by winning it’s also a…

  2. Did We Have Gibbs II Backwards?

    Dec 10, 2007, 2:16 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Maybe we had this Gibbs II thing all wrong. When Joe Gibbs came back in 2004 with what amounted to total control of football operations, the conventional wisdom was that this was good and bad. It was good because Gibbs was without peer when it came to matters of preparation, game planning, and in-game strategy.…

  4. Bears—After Further Review

    Let’s dive right in to looking at what I posted live last night and how it stands up to review 24 hours later: Pregame Suisham is nailing field goal tries from 40 with plenty to spare—he just nailed one that went just a few feet below the top of the goal posts as it went…

    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…

  8. 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…

  12. Taylor took his case to the people

    Nov 28, 2007, 1:22 PM EDT

    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…

    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…

  20. Skins Could Learn From Playoff Teams

    Jan 23, 2007, 3:28 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    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…
