When the Redskins line up against the Indianapolis Colts tonight at Lucas Oil Stadium, there will be a few guys that not only want to make an impression, but need to make an impression. With just a few short weeks left before the regular season, coaches are going to have their fingers on the eject button, and will start jettisoning players after every game. So who is on the bubble, and needs to play well to land on the Redskins 53 man roster? Read the rest of this entry »
The Washington Redskins had an impressive debut with their 16-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday night. Sure it’s only the preseason, but not only did the Redskins earn the win, there were plenty of performances to be encouraged by.
Basically preseason games boil down to one important, and simple concept – evaluation. So here’s my look at the guys who helped themselves, and the guys that may have hurt themselves.

Some weeks, the numbers are a little harder to look at than others, like this week’s from Washington’s 19-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams. The numbers don’t make the loss any easier to swallow, but misery loves company… Read the rest of this entry »
The Redskins struggled a little early on, but finished with a bang to defeat the New Orleans Saints 29-24 at Fed Ex on Sunday. Here are some of the more interesting numbers from the game: Read the rest of this entry »
If you look at this week’s game, it wasn’t nearly as close as the score would lead you to believe. The Redskins were dominant throughout the game on both offense and defense.The weak spot this week? Special Teams.

Okay, so I know what happened here. I wrote about how Durant Brooks did so well last week, taking that shot to the groin and all, he read it, got all cocky, and went out and had a bad week. My fault. However, it’s a good thing I was wearing my lucky underwear to help the Redskins pull out the win. I forgot to wear my lucky underwear last week, and look what happened.

And just a quick note to my friends at DirecTV. I pay you two hundred fifty some-odd dollars for my Sunday Ticket subscription. I pay you ten some-odd dollars a month for my HD service. And now you want me to pay ANOTHER one hundred some-odd dollars to get my Sunday Ticket games in HD with your ‘SuperFan’ offering?!? Have you gone mad?!? How many ways can you possibly screw me out of more of my hard-earned some-odd dollars?!?
And now back to our regular programming (which is probably slighty more random than usual, given that I was irrate and distracted for most of the first half, after learning that I could not watch my game in HD)….
