  • Joe Bugel… we will miss you!


    Well, of course, there are mixed feelings.  Joe Bugel was the architect of (arguably) the most dominant offensive line in football history.  The Hogs were masters of the trenches for over a decade. The Hogs WERE Joe Bugel. Read the rest of this entry »

    Musings from Curmudgeon Corner


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

    As is typically the case, the Redskins are off to a fast start in the offseason championships. Heck, the regular season wasn’t even officially over, and we already had a 4 game lead over the competition after the hiring of Bruce Allen. Read the rest of this entry »

    Bruce Allen? George Allen? Memories…


    All I can say is wow. Cerrato. Gone. Poof. I sure didn’t see it coming. Of course, in hind sight… there have been a number of Daniel Snyder – Bruce Allen sightings… and I think that there have been a couple of quickly dismissed rumors… We all wished… but no one expected… for Cerrato to leave the scene.

    So, there is delirium… rumors continue to swirl… it seems that most money is on Mike Shanahan to become the next HC… but, who would expect that to be announced before the end of the season? Read the rest of this entry »

    Is this for Real?


    It’s time. I’ve spent the season so far celebrating my cynicism… I mean, really, what else could I do… I’m a Redskins fan, who was in his prime during the glory seasons. I know what it is to immerse onself in a sea of victories… Yet, I have now lived through multible seasons of virtual mediocrity. I have sympathy for all those latter day fans, who have known only mediocrity. How sad for you all… You deserve better. So, the question is, was yesterday’s win a hint of things to come? Or just another tease? Read the rest of this entry »

    Sometimes, It Takes Magic


    I’ve heard some of the whining… “You can’t win when you’re playing against the Refs, too.”

    I hear ya. It is hard when you are playing 11 on 12. But, that 12th man wasn’t wearing black and white stripes… Frankly, I’m not sure exactly what Marie LaVeau is wearing these days, but she is clearly one imposing football player, when she’s got that #30 Burgundy and White voodoo doll in her hands…
    She sure timed those needle jabs just right… That had to hurt. And, Madame LaVeau, what skillful manipulations were involved in working that pathetic punt over to tap poor Kevin Barnes in the shoulder as he was doing everything he could to make himself the smallest target possible? wow… excellent. My hat is off to you, Madame… Good game! Read the rest of this entry »

    Injuries = More Tenacious Play?


    I’m confused. So, what else is new?

    Concussions… ACL’s… MCL’s… Fractures… Sprains… Hip pointers… Team leaders and fast risers on IR… yet, still, the Redskins are finding their mojo.

    For multiple weeks at the start of the season, the Redskins, virtually at full strength, played as poorly as you could imagine against the historical dregs of the league. They barely won against the Rams. They lost to the Lions. Amazingly, they beat Tampa Bay… by a field goal. This “sterling” offensive performance was followed by losses to Carolina, Kansas City (KANSAS CITY!!!), Philly at home, a draw with the bye week, then a loss to Atlanta. I have no idea how they beat Denver… but it was nice. Now, they have put up strong, fairly tenacious, but losing, efforts against Dallas and Philly, as well. Read the rest of this entry »

    Musings from Curmudgeon Corner 11/23/09


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

    I have no idea what to think. My Redskins just held to Cowboys to 7 points. My Redskins carried a lead into the fourth quarter, against the Cowboys, at their house. I should be happy.  Yet, I find myself wondering “so, what?”

    The problem was, that lead consisted of 6 points.  Six lousy points, on two field goals.  I can’t entirely blame Zorn, this time.  The patched up offensive line took another blow, with the loss for the year of yet another lineman.  The second string running back, who had knocked them dead last week with a clutch performance, went down with a season ending knee injury.

    Lenny Does It Again


    Len Pastarelli is in love with Jason Campbell… and actually accuses us of not appreciating him…

    Clearly, he doesn’t understand.

    Old Lenny is enamoured with Jason’s statistics… which, on their face, are impressive.  However, only an amature, who looks only at the statistics, would fall for that.  Hey, Lenny… have you actually watched him play?  Read the rest of this entry »

    Bright Future? Not this year…


    Is there any doubt that Marko Mitchell needs to be active every game? Dude had 2 passes thrown his way on Sunday… Turned both into first downs. He has that intangible that turns an average player into a producer. He has earned his shot. Besides, what is there to loose? I’m on the official “Start Marko” bandwagon

    In the desperate search for bright spots, there is Shawn Suisham… who remains perfect on field goal attempts (10, so far)… several of which have not been especially easy.

    Beyond that, well, the Redskins are consistent. Read the rest of this entry »
