Jeter


I sit here today – paralyzed by the sting of the Redskins being destroyed by the New York Giants. I’m not even going to write about the game – it’s too painful to re-live. Instead, I’m going to write something positive, something about Derek Jeter. After all, who won’t be today anyway?

Did you catch Jeter’s last game at home last night? He finished his career with a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth – won the game with his final at bat ever at Yankee Stadium. Epic. Read the rest of this entry »

It Was A Battle, Lost


Ever eaten something that was incredibly delicious, and yet somehow inexplicably, the last bite was bad? Sour? Unpalatable? That’s what the Redskins 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles felt like on Sunday. To me anyway.

That isn’t to say that I pin the loss to the last play of the game for the Redskins, so much as to say, that what was a darn good game of football, may seem tainted by the overall outcome. The chagrin is understandable, 1-2 and a division loss, instead of 2-1 with a division win, is a mountain of difference.

But you can’t grade every game COMPLETELY on the result. Obviously it is the ultimate judgment of play and success, but the Eagles are a very good football team, and the Redskins gave them a heck of a challenge in their own home. I twas a war of attrition. It was nasty at times. it was full of mood swings. It was… great. Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins vs Eagles: Gameday Wallpaper, Injury Reports


It’s time! Big test for the Washington Redskins (1-1)¬† today against their division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (2-0). A win would put them at 2-1 with some winnable games in the foreseeable future.

Today’s match-up pits the league’s number one offense against the number one defense – while the reference pool is too small for that stat to actually mean much, it is probably a good sign of what each team’s keys to victory are.

Here’s a Gameday Wallpaper (1280×800) to get you in the mood… Read the rest of this entry »

By the Numbers: Jaguars


Here is a look at some of the more interesting and telling statistics and numbers from the Washington Redskins’ 41-10 dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars

449 – Yards of total offense. Not bad for a first year coach in just his second game, and missing his starting quarterback, his number 2 wide receiver and his tight end.

250 – Yards passing for Kirk Cousins. it was as solid a performance as you could ask for from your back-up quarterback. He finished the day at 22 of 33, but completed his first TWELVE passes.

191 – Yards rushing for Washington. The offensive line was stalwart against the Jags, they opened holes for everyone, especially between the tackles.

148 – Anaemic total yards for Jacksonville. Great job Redskins defense! Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Overcome Injury Woes To Thrash Jags


Things looked bleak at Fed Ex Field early, when Robert Griffin III was carted off the field early in the first quarter; but when your back-up throws a touchdown on his first pass, it helps you move on quickly. Kirk Cousins and the Redskins overcame injuries not only to RGIII, but to receiver Desean Jackson, and a host of others, by putting in one of the most solid performances up and down the line-up in some time. The Jacksonville Jaguars were lit up by Washington 41-10, and were no match for a very determined Redskins bunch.

Its easy to get caught up in individual performances on Sunday – there were many good ones – but the Redskins head coach deserved as much credit as any. Read the rest of this entry »
