  • 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.

    So, this chunk of blue stuff hits me on the head…


    Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine.

    Ouch… you call that a “get right game?”

    Can it possibly be as bad as it seems? 3 weeks ago, I was ok… they didn’t look great against the Giants, but, what the heck… I didn’t actually expect them to win at Rutherford, now did I? Last week… a win that was as close to a failure as a win can possibly be. The Ram’s “ineptitude” was exceeded only by that of the Lions, yet we were but an interception away from being down 10-9 at the end of the game. Real questions began to arise about Zorn’s competence as a play caller. I’m left anxious about the next game with the Lions, especially in light of the fast start the Lions had against the Vikes.

    Today… disaster. I have seen Chicken Little… and he looks an awful lot like someone I know. Read the rest of this entry »

    Of Gun Slingers and Mojo Lost


    Shudder…

     I have this recurring nightmare. 

    Ford Stadium is rocking.  Redskins ball, third down, 9 yards to go. The thunderous voices of all 6542 Lions fans in the house are drowning out Jason Campbell’s efforts to audible out of the option pass called by coach.  Sonny is in the booth screaming “It won’t work!”  Sam Huff chuckles “He’ll bench you, Sonny”.

    The ball is snapped anyway… ughhhhhhh…  Read the rest of this entry »

    The Zorn Identity


    I wish I could say I knew what Jim Zorn was doing. I wish I could tell you that I see some sort of wonderful master-plan being hatched in the background; but I can’t.

    Jim has lost me entirely.

    Now before you get to thinking that I think Zorn is a complete idiot; he is not. However there were some things that happened this weekend that have me really worried about his coaching and leadership ability. Read the rest of this entry »

    A Horse Walks into a Bar…


    The Bartender asks; “Why the long face?”

    How many of you realize that the Redskins actually won the game yesterday? Show of hands?

    No seriously, they did.

    Yes…they did. I wouldn’t lie to you, they won.

    Yes, I know they only scored nine points, but nine is greater than seven.

    Oh sure, they naysayers are saying “same old Redskins; only scored nine points. That won’t be enough to beat our tougher opponents.”

    Consider this: Read the rest of this entry »

    Musings from Curmudgeon Corner 9/20/09


    You talkin’ to ME?

    Oh, young Mister Henson… when you said “All you fake half hearted Skins fan can .. I won’t go there but I dislike you very strongly, don’t come to Fed Ex to boo dim wits!!”  Did you really need to add “The question is who are you to say you know what’s best for the team and you work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds”?
    Ummm… Mister Henson… you are aware, are you not, that you are but a missed tackle, or two, away from joining the 9-5 crowd at Mickey D’s, are you not? Careful whom you step on while on the way up… they may be the same folks you encounter on your way back down. Read the rest of this entry »

    Slop From The Trough 06-12-09


    This is a new blog I’ll plan to do at least weekly starting with training camp. For now, at least, it will just be something along the lines of a Redskins notebook. I’ll be going to the internet trough and posting some of the slop that I come across that seems relevant. Feel free to comment to let me know if I’ve missed something or you have ideas for improvement.

    For now, let’s get started with LaRon Landry, Jason Campbell, two signings and James Thrash:

    The D.C. Gossip


    Oh how we love our drama here in D.C.! I never watched the Gossip Girl, but here’s how I think the Redskins would be described if you asked a teenage girl. Seems fitting because it’s not far off from how the regular media is reporting it!

     

    Okay, so did you hear that Jimmy called out CP in front of the whole world and blamed him for the Redskins entire offensive troubles?

     

    Like, OMG!!! Right?

     

    So then CP calls up this radio show and he’s all calling Jimmy a “genius” but in that sarcastic way, where you know he totally doesn’t mean it!

     

    I mean, c’mon right? I’d be all mad too if my boss had just told everyone I was a loser.

     

    So then CP is all “we never talk anymore” an stuff, and saying “maybe they should put me on IR” and all that junk, but then Jimmy says he all understands what CP is saying, and totally gets why CP would go on and slam him on the radio, while I’m all like “oh no he didn’t,” but Jimmy’s bein’ all cool about stuff.

     

    I had to lol!

     

    Totally, right?

     

    So then CP is all talking about how he feels good after not playing in the big game, and then says he’ll be at practice, and you just know there’s gonna be all this drama. I would so die if Jimmy just rolled his eyes at CP, y’know? That would be too-funny and I would just have to ROTFLMAO!

     

    I mean, everybody knows all of this is because of Jason. Do you remember last week when Jason was all “boo-hoo-hoo I’m so sad ‘cuz everyone is blaming me for everything?”  What-ever!

     

    Jason’s just mad ‘cuz all those bullies are knocking him down and not letting him do his job because those guys who he thought were his friends can’t seem to stop the bullies from getting to him? And he’s all like “I can’t just throw the ball if there ain’t nobody open!” I know, right? Seriously!

     

    So then Jimmy says all that stuff about CP because he doesn’t want Jason to start crying again, and Clinton’s all like “uh-uh, you ain’t blamin’ me for all this, I tried to stop them” and Jimmy’s all like “yeah, but you aren’t stopping them” so he goes and sends out Ladell who doesn’t stop those bullies either, but he doesn’t say anything about that so you just know there’s other things goin’ on between CP and Jimmy!

     

    So I heard that Jimmy was all mad because whenever he and CP are hanging out at practice, that CP’s all just standing there and not doing anything, but CP’s all mad because he says he’s been doing all the work, but Jimmy’s all like “nuh-uh!”

     

    Why does there have to be all this drama all the time? Why can’t Jimmy and CP just get over it and be friends? And why isn’t anyone paying attention to Freddy ‘cuz you know he’s all mad ever since everyone started hanging out with D’angelo, but everyone’s so caught up in this JZ/CP thing that they are all missing the fact that Freddy really needs a hug!

     

    That’s all for now, see you at the Mall!!

     

    Xoxo

    Get On Your Horse


    Back on September 14th, I blogged about the Redskins need to put the ball into the hands of their most lethal offensive weapon, Clinton Portis. Needless to say, the Redskins don’t listen to me, but Coach Zorn obviously agreed with the sentiment, as since that time, Portis has been busy, and he has been effective. In fact, he’s been more effective than any other running back in the league. Read the rest of this entry »
