  • Thoughts on Washington Redskins vs. Seattle Seahawks


    First of all, for all the people shocked at the chippyness of this game, and how these two teams could possibly be rivals, I’ll say to you that you can look no further than any other game we’ve played against the Seahawks. They’ve all been chippy, and they’ve all been tough. While Trent Williams was the key guy in a lot of the video getting into it, and while it’s documented that the Seahawks may have started it by taking offense to a Redskins huddle at midfield, I wouldn’t count out veterans like Mike Sellers and Santana Moss having a lot to do with it before the game on our side.

    On to the game, the opening drive was refreshing. It’s been a long time since this team has started a game with a long drive, and even longer since scoring (a touchdown at that) on the opening drive. It was a bit disappointing following up that drive with drives that just fell short, or ended early due to penalties in this chippy game, but my biggest praise goes to Kyle Shanahan for sticking with the run. There were definitely times we didn’t run enough still, but the early influx of the run definitely kept the Seahawks honest enough. Read the rest of this entry »

    Analysis of the Washington Redskins and Fans


    Okay, it’s finally time I present this long-winded rant about the Redskins. Just a quick disclaimer, there may be some foul language, I may target some people, and this is not going to be a rant all about the team or coaches… “fans” are as open a target as any. Read the rest of this entry »

    Review of Washington Redskins vs. San Francisco 49ers

    Diatribe to Leonard Hankerson’s Doubters


    Last week, prior to John Beck’s proclamation in his impromptu media session, I made it a point to remark that Leonard Hankerson may not have been to blame for the INT late in the game. I said it looked as though he made a read on the corner who bit down, and Beck threw it to where Hankerson would have been had he just contested Gamble for the catch instead of trying to make a play by getting open downfield. John Beck confirmed that, and whether he was just being the pro and leader and taking the bullet for his guy or not, is left to nothing but speculation. Read the rest of this entry »

    For the Love of Rex?


    That’s it. The only question was, why did Shanahan take so long?

    The Eagles had sold out. All effort was placed on stopping the run. They had committed to forcing Grossman to beat them with his arm. Read the rest of this entry »

    Leftovers: Reed Doughty Edition


    As you all know, when a player is interviewed, not every answer or quote can fit into an article. Below are the leftovers of my latest interview with Redskins safety Reed Doughty, who always is great for quotes and giving honest answers. Reed talks about spending time with Adam Carriker after he moved to Colorado this offseason, the loss of Jarvis Jenkins, his ticket giveaway for the season opener against the New York Giants, and other events he has coming up in the future. Be sure to check out the article here and follow Reed on Twitter @doughty37. Read the rest of this entry »

    Things Still Looking Up? Preseason Game 2


    The Colts are notorious as “non-performers” through pre-season.   That is a given.   They view preseason as an opportunity to evaluate personnel, and to get into game shape.   Yet, you can’t help but wonder if there isn’t a bit of concern in Indy this morning.   Read the rest of this entry »

    RB Davis Skips Practice


    If you haven’t already heard, Redskins roster hopeful James Davis was a no-show at practice today, and his whereabouts are unknown. Davis fought his way on to the Redskins active roster in 2010, and was going to have to do the same again in 2011. Perhaps Davis thought he was fighting a losing battle with two rookie running backs, Roy Helu and Evan Royster, as well as recently imported Tim Hightower all coming in to vie for time in the backfield.
