    The Washington Redskins continue to hit new lows, as the team sets a record by playing the most winless teams to start a season and coming out of it with a 2-4 record. Read the rest of this entry »

    A Redskins Fan’s Lament


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

    I’m sorry, Mr. Cassell.  Did I violate your personal space?

    It made no difference, ultimately, in the outcome of the game, but that alleged “roughing the passer” call on Haynesworth is just further evidence that the effort by the NFL to protect a single group of players is completely out of control.  The NFL has made the determination that an all out effort to keep Quarterbacks from being touched has greater value than protecting the integrity of the game.

    Hey, Dan… Wouldn’t a vacation be nice?


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

    “Linus! You’ve got to lose the blanket! Oh yeah!”

    There is one thing that the Redskins have plenty of… and that is retired great running backs who have an opinion. Riggins has joined the pig pile, along with B. Mitch. There seems to be a bit of a competition to see who can contribute the wittiest commentary. That would definitely have to be Riggo… B. Mitch seems to have the bigger bite, though.

    The Future “Beloved” Daniel Snyder???


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

    Much discussion about General Managers on Redskins fan boards these days… it’s pretty much a (note: I said “a” not “the”) common denominator. Read the rest of this entry »

    Brrrrrr… It’s cold in Denver…


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine.

    It’s official. The National Sports Media’s “Jim Zorn Getting’ Fired” Vigil has officially begun. When a Redskins1 sighting in Denver began a feeding frenzy of undercover press stakeouts outside the home of Mike Shanahan, the drooling over the still conscious body of the Redskins coach moved into high gear.

    Numbers, Schmumbers


    Numbers.  47-3.  24-3.  71-6.  Sure, they mean something, and right now they don’t look good.  But this game is about more than numbers, which sounds silly to say, since the score has actual numbers in it, numbers which determine the winner and loser.  However, in the preseason, I’ve tried to look past the numbers, and what I see from the Redskins is rather exciting.

    So, with gloom and doom lurking around the Redskins as of late, I thought I would brighten your day with a few positive notes: Read the rest of this entry »

    Is it time to wake up already?


    (*Cue dramatic nature-like music & deep voice-over-type voice*) Like a bear – a big, burly brown bear – or wait, maybe a like a black bear, yeah, a black bear – like a black bear, I awaken from my winter slumber to emerge into the spring that is…..the NFL Preseason. Just like the bear, I am hungry – starving for sustenance. For him that means fish and berries – for me, it means Redskins football. And just like the bear, I have to poop, since I’ve been holding it for months. Actually, that’s where the metaphor falls apart, because I have been pooping all winter, but hang in there with me for a moment longer. (*Ahem*) Just like the bear, I’ve forgotten the struggles of the last year, and I look forward to the triumph that the new season seems to promise. And as the bear and I gaze upon the shining spring sun, we’re both thinking the same thing – ‘Man, I hate the *bleeping* Cowboys.’

    So now that I’ve warmed up my metaphoric muscles, I’ll get to the meat of the act. I was going to write about how we as Redskins fans need to CALM DOWN and not get all giggly and squirmy just because the team has looked pretty darn good in the first couple of preseason games. But then I thought – hey, why not get all giggly and squirmy? This may be our only chance to get all giggly and squirmy, so we might as well do it now.

    Dan Snyder’s Agenda…


    Go to redskins.com and look to the right at redskins store…

    “Pre order” your Jason Taylor jersey.

    The guy hasn’t even played one down for the B & G. He too could be bitten by the injury bug, and never play a down. (god I hope not) But you can send Danny your money for his jersey. Read the rest of this entry »

    Dan Snyder Talks ‘Skins


    In this morning’s edition of the Washington Times, David Elfin published a transcript of an interview he did with Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and a corresponding article. While I have issue with some of the things David Elfin writes and was unimpressed with the way he handled the inclusion of fan sites in the 2004 Mini Camp I was lucky enough to attend, this interview gives an interesting insight into how Dan Snyder views himself and the organization in its current state.

    Dan’s Prom Date


    Were you expecting anything less than this? A circus of media attention, dragged out for weeks, complete with flying rumors, disgruntled coaches, and hard evidence that Dan Snyder is an alien hell-bent on destroying the earth (I threw that alien stuff in there myself). If you expected a nice, quiet search for a new coach, then you, my friend, have not been paying attention.

    I know you tried hard to believe that Dan had changed, that Joe Gibbs had taken him by the arm and illuminated the path to greatness – or at least the path to common sense. But Dan is what Dan is. However far Joe pulled him, when released to his own devices, Dan swung back to his equilibrium. As the sign in the Oracle’s kitchen says, ‘Know thyself’. Dan Snyder knows himself. He is what he is, and there’s not much we as fans can do about it, except grit our teeth and hold on tight, or get off the ride. Eat a cookie, you’ll feel better.
