    Captain Kirk: #WallpaperWednesday


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Every week of the regular season, I will be posting a Redskins wallpaper on Wednesday.

    Hence the catchy hashtag. 😉

    I thought I would start with Captain Kirk. Given the recent announcement that Cousins was the 2015 starting quarterback – why start anywhere else?

    Enjoy and #HTTR !

    Just click on the image for a full 1440×900 wallpaper. I will try to do up a social network friendly version later on today.

    Next up – the traditional annual Schedule Wallpaper – 2015 edition.

    By The Numbers: Redskins vs Titans


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Here are the important statistics and numbers for Washington’s narrow 19-17 victory over Tennessee on Sunday. It may not have been the prettiest of wins, but it ended the losing streak regardless, and hopefully put the now 2-5 Redskins back on the winning path. The Titans fell to the same mark of 2-5.

    351 – Total net yards for the Redskins, to just 236 for the Titans.

    160 – Yards passing for Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, on 17 receptions (26 attempts, 91.8 rating).

    139 – Yards passing for Kirk Cousins, on 10 completions (16 attempts).

    138.9 – QB rating for Colt McCoy. Contrast that with the 64.3 that Cousins put up on basically the same number of yards. Read the rest of this entry »

    5 Quick Game Thoughts: Titans


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Here are 5 quick thoughts I had following the Redskins, ahem, thrilling 19-17 victory over the Titans at Fed Ex on Sunday.

    1) The Real McCoy – I don’t know what Colt McCoy’s NFL future looks like, or even if he will start next week against the Cowboys, but I will tell you this – he should. He was sharp coming off the bench, and provided Washington with exactly the right mix of spark and conservativeness. His very first pass hit pay dirt when Pierre Garcon took it 70 yards to the house. Colt showed great poise down the stretch too, especially on the last drive. He finished his first start as a Redskin, 11 of 12 for 128 yards. You could ask nothing more of the young man… near back-up perfection. Read the rest of this entry »

    407 – Yards of total offense for the Redskins. The Cardinals had 317.

    354 – Yards passing for Kirk Cousins, on a 24 for 38 day; unfortunately 3 of those 14 incompletions were actually completions to Arizona Cardinals.

    250 – Yards passing for Carson Palmer, who returned from a 5-game absence due to a nerve injury in his shoulder. He was 28 of 44, with 0 interceptions and 2 touchdowns. Read the rest of this entry »

    By The Numbers: Redskins vs Seahawks


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Not even taking 3 touchdowns away from Percy Harvin, could stop Russell Wilson and the Seahawks from handing the Redskins their 4th loss in 5. Here are the interesting numbers and statistics from the Seahawks 27-17 victory over the Redskins on Monday night:

    6,781 – Equals the number of times I watched Russell Wilson do something and thought, remember when RGIII used to look sort of like that? But I digress… Read the rest of this entry »

    It Was A Battle, Lost


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Ever eaten something that was incredibly delicious, and yet somehow inexplicably, the last bite was bad? Sour? Unpalatable? That’s what the Redskins 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles felt like on Sunday. To me anyway.

    That isn’t to say that I pin the loss to the last play of the game for the Redskins, so much as to say, that what was a darn good game of football, may seem tainted by the overall outcome. The chagrin is understandable, 1-2 and a division loss, instead of 2-1 with a division win, is a mountain of difference.

    But you can’t grade every game COMPLETELY on the result. Obviously it is the ultimate judgment of play and success, but the Eagles are a very good football team, and the Redskins gave them a heck of a challenge in their own home. I twas a war of attrition. It was nasty at times. it was full of mood swings. It was… great. Read the rest of this entry »

    By the Numbers: Jaguars


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Here is a look at some of the more interesting and telling statistics and numbers from the Washington Redskins’ 41-10 dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars

    449 – Yards of total offense. Not bad for a first year coach in just his second game, and missing his starting quarterback, his number 2 wide receiver and his tight end.

    250 – Yards passing for Kirk Cousins. it was as solid a performance as you could ask for from your back-up quarterback. He finished the day at 22 of 33, but completed his first TWELVE passes.

    191 – Yards rushing for Washington. The offensive line was stalwart against the Jags, they opened holes for everyone, especially between the tackles.

    148 – Anaemic total yards for Jacksonville. Great job Redskins defense! Read the rest of this entry »
