2008 Season

  1. Roster moves

    Dec 9, 2008, 9:23 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    This from the press release, more later: ASHBURN, VA – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed tackle Devin Clark and guard Will Montgomery and have placed offensive lineman Justin Geisinger and tackle Chris Samuels on injured reserve.  In addition, the team released defensive end Erasmus James from the active roster and signed…

  2. 10 still is the number

    Dec 9, 2008, 12:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Ten wins still will get the Washington Redskins into the NFL playoffs. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail because nothing substantial has changed from last week. I’m also not going to address whether or not the Redskins can get to 10 wins given the way they have been playing over the…

  3. Youth movement starts on OL

    Dec 8, 2008, 8:01 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    By necessity, a youth movement is underway on the Redskins’ offensive line. With Chris Samuels going onto injured reserve, the Redskins signed Devin Clark from the practice squad. The former New Mexico Lobo, who signed as an undrafted free agent last spring, is 22 years old, 6-4, 302. He will practice at both tackle spots…

  4. Samuels out for the season

  6. Will 10 wins get in?

    Dec 3, 2008, 1:35 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    In 2005 and again in 2007 the Washington Redskins faced strings of must-win games in December. They lost to San Diego in the last game of November of ’05 to fall to 5-6. They then reeled off five straight wins to grab a Wild Card spot. Last year they were 5-7 after a December 2…

  7. Benching Campbell would be a big mistake

    Dec 1, 2008, 7:51 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Let’s cut straight to the subject that’s been buzzing around the message board and talk radio world: Should Jason Campbell be benched? Clearly, his performance has fallen off in the past seven games. After the first five games of the year Campbell’s QB rating stood at a very respectable 100 and he hadn’t thrown an…

  8. Redskins-Giants Injury Report, Predicitons

    Nov 29, 2008, 1:22 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Washington Redskins should not have to worry about covering Plaxico Burress on Sunday. The New York Giants may or may not have to worry about tackling Clinton Portis. Burress, who torched the Washington secondary with 10 catches for 113 yards in the season opener, is listed as out with a hamstring injury. As has…

  9. What Redskins Fans Should be Thankful For

    Nov 27, 2008, 12:32 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Redskins fans have plenty to be thankful for on this day: The Cowboys, Giants, and Eagles—This seems a bit odd, but stay with me. The Redskins get to play six games a year against three of the most storied teams in the entire NFL, teams with long traditions (well, except the Cowboys) of championship-caliber play…

  10. Skins Flexed to Prime Time vs. Ravens

    Nov 25, 2008, 1:29 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Redskins’ December 7 game against the Baltimore Ravens has been moved from a 1:00 PM kickoff to a prime time 8:30 affair on NBC. There are those who are complaining about the move given the Redskins’ dismal record in prime time games this year. They are 7-1 in games that start under the natural…

  11. Skins-Seahawks First Take

    Nov 24, 2008, 1:46 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Some initial observations, in no particular order. The Washington Redskins went back to the formula that worked early in the year. They battled even through four quarters and then dominated the fourth. Seattle ran all of five plays after they scored to tie the game at 17 with 13:24 left in the fourth quarter. Washington…

  12. My Jim Zorn Moment

    Comments Off

    I nearly had the Jim Zorn moment that Ryan O’Halloran of the Times experienced after the Lions game. In case you haven’t seen it, go to about the 2:00 mark in this video. You’ll see Zorn get annoyed at a series of followup questions by O’Halloran, who was trying to find out about Zorn’s thinking…

    Comments Off

    The Washington Redskins scored on a three-play drive to take a 14-3 lead over the Cleveland Browns with 12:28 left to play. Derrick Anderson started to heat up and nine plays and 4:10 later the Browns had a second and 10 at the Washington 19. The Redskins brought the heat but Cleveland had the right…

  15. Redskins-Browns: After Further Review

    Oct 20, 2008, 9:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Leigh Torrence has Ade Jimoh’s special teams prowess with better coverage skills. Despite the issues on the late deep pass that set up the game-winning field goal last week, one does not break into a cold sweat when Torrence is called upon to play nickel back. There was no such confidence with special teams ace…

  16. An “a win is a win” win

    Oct 20, 2008, 3:43 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Browns came to Washington for the first time since 1991. The game unfolded much like one from 1981. Clinton Portis was running like the Redskins’ top back from 1971. This was not a game for those who love high-scoring affairs. The first half was scoreless, the first time the Redskins have been involved in…

    Hello and welcome to the Real Redskins live blog of the Redskins-Cowboys matchup. The buildup and the talking are over and it’s time get this party started.

  18. The over under

    Comments Off

    The Las Vegas wins over/under line is out and the number for the Washington Redskins places them smack dab in the muddled middle of the NFL. Depending on where you want to plunk down your money, you can bet that the Redskins win total for 2008 will be more or fewer than 7.5 or eight.…

  20. WP: Skins will open NFL season at Giants

    Mar 26, 2008, 9:26 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The football offseason is the longest in team sports. According to Jason Reid at the Post, it will be just a little bit shorter this year for Redskins fans. Reid is reporting that the Redskins will play in the traditional (since 2002, if you can call that a tradition) Thursday night season opener at the… Archives
