  • Decimated Redskins Roster to Face Surging Rival Cowboys

    When a coach has to change a Wednesday practice to a walk through in an already short week, you know that the injuries have officially piled to the ceiling. That’s exactly what Jay Gruden did yesterday, on the heels of seven MORE Redskins being hurt in the 34-24 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. The multitude of injuries have obviously caused a change in the betting odds for the Redskins games, and they pose a challenge that will frankly be hard to account for this week against Dallas.

    As if losing convincingly to Philadelphia and losing most hope of winning the NFC East division this year wasn’t enough, Washington was once again devastated by injuries over the course of the game for the third game in a row. This week, it was the offensive line that took it on the chin. Read the rest of this entry »

    Throwback Thursday – Lombardi and Jurgensen Beat Noll’s Steelers

    It was on this day, October 26th in 1969, that a Redskins team coached by the late, great Vince Lombardi defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 14-7.

    Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen scored both Redskin touchdowns, one with his feet, and one with his arm. The second, a 17 yard pass to Charley Taylor.

    Wallpaper Wednesday: Josh Norman – The Dark Knight Returns

    It’s Wallpaper Wednesday, and a banged up Redskins roster got a bit of good news yesterday, that cornerback Josh Norman would be returning to practice.

    Norman fractured a rib and punctured a lung in Week 4.

    Being cleared to practice doesn’t ensure that he will play against the Cowboys this week, but it certainly broadens the possibility. And with Dez Bryant on the docket, the Redskins secondary could use the help. The Redskins defense has allowed 378 yards per game in Norman’s absence.

    Throwback Thursday Bonus Edition: 30 Years Ago Today – The Replacements

    On October 19th, 1987, ten Dallas Cowboy players crossed the picket line to play in a Monday Night Football game during an NFL strike. They were 8 point favorites against a Redskins team that was still using 100% replacement players. The replacement Redskins team spanked the Cowboys 13-7 right in Texas Stadium, thusly creating one of the greatest underdog victories in NFL history, one of the most memorable Monday Night Football games in NFL history, and the inspiration for the movie, The Replacements.

    They weren’t garden variety players that crossed that picket line either – Hall of Famers Tony Dorsett and Randy White were among the group, as was starting quarterback Danny White.

    Rookie Jonathan Allen Done For The Season

    The staunch Redskins defense received some tough injury news yesterday – rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is done for the remainder of the 2017 season. Allen suffered the injury in the second half of Washington’s 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

    Allen sustained a Lisfranc sprain, and although at first Redskins head coach Jay Gruden seemed optimistic about a quicker return, news broke yesterday from several outlets that Allen will require surgery, and is indeed done for the remainder of 2017.

    The NFL and Head Trauma: Deandre Levy Wants to Eliminate Full-Contact Practices

    What is the NFL to do about head injuries? It is a bone of contention that will not go away, and it obviously shouldn’t, not when the health of athletes is on the line. Linebacker DeAndre Levy’s recent suggestion has a lot of people buzzing.
    NFL athletes make suggestions all the time, but the one from Levy could have an impact on Redskins betting odds for the season, especially if it is put into practice. If you haven’t heard, Levy participated in a congressional forum constituting members of the House Energy, Commerce, and Judiciary Committees.

    The linebacker’s suggestion was that the NFL should eliminate full-contact practices. It matters that an athlete like Levy is bringing this idea to the table because that gives it more weight.

    Levy made mention of the fact that he was already aching when he went into the game on Sunday because collisions he encountered on Wednesday and Thursday during practice had left him feeling significantly sore. Read the rest of this entry »

    Banged Up Redskins Secondary To Face Tough Eagles Offense In Critical Match Up

    Week Seven could be a make-or-break week for the Washington Redskins’ 2017 Playoff aspirations. Every game is important in a 16-game season – every divisional game even more so. When you’re facing the only team ahead of you in the divisional race, and losing gives them both wins this season and the first tie breaker, it’s pretty safe to say that the Redskins hopes for winning the NFC East this year could very well come down to the result of this early week 7 game. Beating the Eagles won’t guarantee them success, but losing to them could drastically affect the Redskins betting odds of getting to the playoffs via a divisional first place.

    That’s no small feat given that the game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field, and the Redskins secondary could potentially have more holes than swiss cheese. Read the rest of this entry »

    Wallpaper Wednesday: Eagles Versus Skins – Kerrigan

    Huge match up this week for the Redskins as they face their division rivals, and the team between Washington and first place in the NFC East – the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite only being week seven, this is the second time that the Redskins have played the Eagles already this year, with Philly winning on opening day. Losing this game would mean that the Eagles have the critical first tie breaker of head-to-head record.

    So Ryan Kerrigan and the entire defense are going to have to find a way to shut down Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense.
