We’ll get things going here at about 12:30 PM. See you then! UPDATE: Have to run a quick errand, will get started at more like 12:45. Hall is starting in place of Rogers, kind of surprising there.

Good job by the defense, turning a second and one into a fourth and one and a punt. Jacobs got stonewalled twice and the Redskins have some life as the fourth quarter starts. 11:09—The teams exchange three and outs and with still plenty of time left, the Redskins still have a chance. The New York…

It will be very tough for the Redskins here, but they’re not out of it. New York gets the kickoff and another turnover would be ideal. By the way, I think the Skins have to find an alternative to Suisham. He has lost it and this is no time for him to try to find…

14:50—Again, throwing short of the first down marker on third down. This time it was incomplete but it wouldn’t have mattered as it was a good three yards shy of the line to make. That’s a situation where you might as well go deep since if it’s picked it’s as good as a punt. Better,…

13:15—Not a very aggressive first series there for Zorn. A four-yard pass to Thrash, who has no RAC ability, on third and six isn’t exactly pushing the envelope. It resulted in a three and out and a quick punt back to the Giants. Toomer 40 pass from Manning (Carney kick)Giants 7, Redskins 0 That was…

Had to start a new window, here it is.

14:55—Another promising drive ends on some odd play calling as Alexander gets a carry up the middle on second and 10. There still is no rhythm to the play calling and so the Browns still are very much in the game. A nice Plackemeier punt, though, has the Browns pinned near the five. A three…

I trust that Zorn will be able to come up with some halftime adjustments. That last drive wouldn’t have been bad had it taken place in the middle of the second quarter. It was well paced and effective, for that time of game. For the time that it actually happened, it took way too much…

8:46—This game is flying by in terms of game time vs. real time but in terms of entertainment value, well, not so much. Neither team has been able to put together much of a sustained drive and it’s mostly poor offense—penalties, dropped passes, etc.—as opposed to solid defense of any sort. I’m not sure what…

Pregame—The Redskins will kick off in their all-white uniforms. Zorn said that they would switch to the dark jerseys in the second half of the season, so when they host the Steelers on Monday night in a couple of weeks they should be in Burgundy shirts. 13:43—A fortunate three and out by the defense, as…
