    I don’t necessarily feel compelled to pass along every news report I hear or read about the Redskins here since most of you have TV’s and all of you have computers and you get pretty much what I get. However, when something is reported on the NFL Network, I try to post something about it…

  2. Spagnuolo at Redskins Park

    According to broadcast reports, Dan Snyder’s interview with Steve Spagnuolo has moved to Redskins Park. That would seem to be a good indicator for those who are in favor of the hiring of the Super Bowl champs’ defensive coordinator, but, as has been the case throughout the process, we really don’t know. Perhaps Spagnuolo is…

    As most of you know, Steve Spagnuolo will be remaining in his job as the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants rather than becoming the next head coach of the Washington Redskins. After talking until the wee hours of the morning both Tuesday and Wednesday, Spagnuolo flew back to New York early this morning…

    According to the latest report, Dan Snyder and Steve Spagnuolo were still huddled at Snyder’s Maryland estate discussing the Redskins head coaching job as of late Wednesday afternoon. Their talks started Tuesday evening. A fly on the wall in stately Snyder manor likely is hearing two sales jobs going on. One is typical in such…

    In his three hires of head coaches, Dan Snyder has taken one from each of three major categories. He has gone the retread route in hiring Marty Schottenheimer. Then he went into the college ranks to get Steve Spurrier. Four years ago it was returning legend Joe Gibbs. The results have ranged from a cut…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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,…
