  1. Ticket rage

    Comments Off on Ticket rage

    The Washington Post obviously is very anxious to create a buzz about their multi-part series about issues within the Redskins ticket office. When I awoke this morning there I had an email in my box giving the outline of the initial installment of the series and a link to the story. In the first few…

    Comments Off on Live blog plus ask your questions—Skins vs. Jags

    Update: –The CoveritLive software isn’t working. Actually, there isn’t enough bandwidth for it to work here at FedEx. I’m going to have to do this the old-fashioned way and update quarter by quarter or more frequently as events dictate. I’ll try to get this worked out for next week but, hey, it’s the preseason for…

  3. For starters, first team offense will play

    Comments Off on For starters, first team offense will play

    As you probably have read, Jim Zorn has decided to play the offensive starters for a series or two tonight in the Washington Redskins’ preseason finale. The players, by all reports, are all in favor of getting out there to play the kinks out of their game, even if they will be facing the Jags’…

  4. Redskins-Jets; After Further Review

    Comments Off on Redskins-Jets; After Further Review

    Jason Campbell It’s not like going 4 for 10 for 28 yards is completely irrelevant, it’s just incomplete information. It’s like trying to judge a Miss American contestant by looking at one of her arms. Football games ebb and flow. Quarterbacks sometimes start out hot and cool off as the defense adjusts. On other occasions…

  5. It could have been worse, Part 1

    Comments Off on It could have been worse, Part 1

    The last time the Washington Redskins played the Jets in the preseason, it got ugly early and stayed that way. Here’s my live game blog from FedEx Field on that night in August of 2006. Following the game, Joe Gibbs had the shortest press conference ever. Take a look at Joe Gibbs Anger Management. Pregame…

    Comments Off on Skins vs. Bretts live blog

    Join us here this Saturday, August 16 for’s live blog of the Washington Redskins’ preseason game against the New York Brett Favres. Hopefully, 79 other players in green will accompany His Royal Favreness to the Meadowlands and we will have an exhibition contest as interesting and entertaining as the Skins’ previous two have been.…

  7. Marcus Mason–Maybe

    Aug 11, 2008, 1:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off on Marcus Mason–Maybe

    I’m starting to change my mind about Marcus Mason. I think the kid has a shot. He’s not a lock to make the Washington Redskins’ roster by any stretch. But it seems like each carry he adds to his resume makes it harder and harder for the coaching staff to leave him off of the…

  8. Jason Campbell wants to keep a good thing going

    Comments Off on Jason Campbell wants to keep a good thing going

    This just in: Jason Campbell is hot. The Washington Redskins’ fourth-year quarterback enjoyed another sharp, productive appearance on Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills. On his team’s second possession he led a 12-play, 53-yard touchdown drive. Actually, the drive covered 73 yards in 14 plays as the Skins had to overcome a pair of 10-yard…

  11. Saturday’s game vs. Bills—first look

    Aug 7, 2008, 3:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off on Saturday’s game vs. Bills—first look

    The Washington Redskins have left behind the glow of Canton and the combined QB rating of 147.2 that Campbell, Collins, Brennan and Devine laid on the Colts’ scrubs. They now turn their attention to their Saturday night preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. As you are all sophisticated Redskins fans, you know that teams do…

  12. Chris Horton a lock?

    Aug 5, 2008, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off on Chris Horton a lock?

    It probably would be inaccurate to say that Chris Horton is happy that fellow Washington Redskins safety Stuart Schweigert is now his former teammate. Pros, even rookies, don’t revel in players becoming unemployed, even ones that play the same position. However, although Horton isn’t doing a happy dance, it’s doubtful that he’s moping around the…

  13. Marcus Mason

    Aug 4, 2008, 10:09 PM EDT

    Comments Off on Marcus Mason

    The second-year back, who spent all of last year on the Washington Redskins’ practice squad, looked good running the ball. He was decisive, quick to the hole, and he had a sneaky way of dodging through traffic to make the most out of each carry. He wound up with 98 yards on 18 carries. Mason…
