  1. Fame catches up to Monk

    From the early 1980’s through the early 1990’s, a sign hung in the far end zone from my seat at RFK Stadium. It was nothing fancy, painted on bed sheets in large block letters with a Redskins helmet on the left side. It was there every home game well before kickoff and it stayed well…

    A Hall of Fame career is made up of a series of Hall of Fame moments. Art Monk had many of those during his 14 seasons with the Redskins and his body of work was finally recognized today. Here is one of his best games, one where he came through when the team needed him…

  5. Too quiet?

    As the search to find the successor to Joe Gibbs reaches its 26th day, the news coming out of the process has slowed to a crawl, approaching a dead stop. It’s been a week since the team announced that Gregg Williams and Al Saunders had been fired, that Jim Zorn and Greg Blache would be…

  7. Mariucci nervous on NFLN

    I had the NFL Network on today while I was doing some things around the office (I’d call it work, but I try not to lie to the audience here). Early in the afternoon, Steve Mariucci was on the set with Bret Favre, Deion Sanders, and Rich Eisen. In a segment that was repeated several…

    Three names have been the buzz in the Redskins coaching search over the past couple of days. Earlier, I looked at Steve Mariucci. Now the focus turns to New York defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. When the Redskins announced that the selection of a new head coach would not take place until after the Super Bowl,…

    Another day, another round of stories, rumors and dots to try to connect in the process of the Redskins’ selection of a head coach. Three names have been the buzz the last few days. Here’s one of them, the other two will be covered later today. Steve Mariucci’s name came up on Sunday night when…

  13. OC—The Zorn Identity

    Jim Zorn has accepted an offer to become the offensive coordinator of the Redskins. Earlier this week, it was reported that Zorn interviewed for the position but returned to Seattle after that and it seemed likely that he would stay in his current position as the quarterbacks coach of the Seahawks. There, he could have…

  15. Sausage making

    If the Discovery Channel series How It’s Made ever did an episode about sausage, I’d quickly turn the channel. There’s an old saying about sausage making—you never want to see it if you ever want to enjoy eating sausage again. A massive operation that’s very similar to making sausage has been going on in and…

  17. Schwartz back in the picture?

    A friend of a relative has an old college buddy who knows a guy who knows Tennessee defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz and he says that Schwartz is coming into town this weekend for another round of interviews. Actually, the source of this information isn’t quite that convoluted, but it’s just as much hearsay. I’m only…

  19. Assistant coaches need action

    Now that Jim Fassel has been put on the back burner, perhaps permanently, there is a sense that the Redskins are going to deliberate further on their choice for Joe Gibbs’ replacement. It seems likely that a decision will not be made this week. There is talk—unconfirmed by the Redskins, of course—that Dan Snyder may…
