  1. How I’ll Spend My Winter Vacation

    Dec 18, 2007, 1:25 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I don’t go into personal matters much here. My daughter doesn’t play field hockey and my dogs don’t do much besides sleep and bark at the UPS driver and my life is, by and large, blissfully boring. But I’m pretty pumped up about my upcoming winter vacation. It’s about football, so here’s the itinerary: Sunday,…

  2. Giants—After Further Review

    Fishing a few nuggets out of last night’s stream of consciousness. Pregame –Dallas lost which, as I said earlier, is OK with me. If—and it’s a big if—the Redskins’ chances of making the playoffs comes down to the last game, I’d rather it mean something to the Cowboys. After last week’s near-miss against the Lions…

  4. Redskins-Giants Fourth Quarter

    Dec 17, 2007, 5:53 AM EDT

    Giants just past the 50 as the fourth quarter begins. 14:51—Manning is still enjoying too much time to throw. Skins aren’t getting enough pressure from the front four and the secondary isn’t getting good enough coverage. 13:21—Nice play by Smoot, knocking a TD away from Burress. Third and 10 at the 21. 13:15—Not sure what…

  5. Strahan retires

    I just posted the following to the blog archives the other day. The article was written immediately after the Redskins beat the Giants in Week 15. Obviously, that was before the Giants’ improbable run to the Super Bowl title. Still, it didn’t change my mind about the guy: On the other hand, I used to…

  6. Shockey

    I didn’t get a chance to fit this in but I was going to mention that after disliking Jeremy Shockey for years, I now respect him a great deal. He has grown up and has managed to channel his energy away from being obnoxious to being a hustling, aggressive player who, like most of his…

  7. Redskins-Giants Third Quarter

    Portis has 16 carries for 88 yards after a slow start. If he hits near those same numbers in the second half and the Redskins continue to play with what I’ll call intelligent aggression, the Skins will win. Oh, and the D needs to adjust to NY’s halftime adjustments. I neglected to mention that Betts…

  8. Redskins Giants Second Quarter

    14:10—Collins is now 0-8. He’s been getting some pressure, but he’s been misfiring with time to throw, too. 13:49—A good stick by Blades stops Jacobs in his tracks. 13:10—Jacobs drops another pass. At least Manning is getting the ball close enough to his receivers for them to drop it. 12:44—Collins’ first completion is a good…

  9. Redskins-Giants First Quarter

    14:49—Nearly a big pick on the first play of the game as Smooth and Landry both had a shot. 14:09—The Redskins are doing a lot of blitzing, trying to rattle Manning. So far, it’s working. 14:00—Smoot makes a nice play on the receiver on a pass that was held up by some wind. He disturbed…

  13. 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…

  18. 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.…

  20. 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…
