Is there anything worse for a Redskins fan, than losing to the Dallas Cowboys? How about betting online AND losing a game largely due to the play of the special teams units? Sure there were plenty of other things to point to in Sunday’s 31-16 loss to the Cowboys, but you can’t give up (ostensibly) 14 points on special teams, leave three on the board, and not notice that it’s 17 points in a 15-point loss.

It was a big win for the Redskins on Sunday, despite being just the fourth game of the regular season. Going into the bye week at 1-3 might not seem all that majestic, but with the Eagles and Giants at 0-4, and the Cowboys at 2-2, Washington is very much still in the thick of things in the NFC East thanks to the victory, despite the slow start.
Here is a look at some of the more interesting, and telling numbers and statistics from the Redskins 24-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Most of these stats are from the official NFL stats, and I got the NFL betting lines at TopBet.eu Sportsbook. Read the rest of this entry »

Feel like you’ve been kicked in the groin repeatedly? We all do. It’s never a great feeling when you feel like your team played it’s worst game in the last two months, to end the season. Obviously the story of the game was Robert Griffin III – his injured knee – and the decision to leave him in the game. I can’t believe the vitriol that I have heard spewing from many in #RedskinsNation’s mouth:
The Washington Redskins will have five players at this year’s Pro Bowl – three selections and two alternates.
Robert Griffin III, Lorenzo Alexander, and Trent Williams all earned their first career Pro Bowl selections. In Griffin’s case, he becomes just the second rookie quarterback to ever be named to the Pro Bowl – Dan Marino was the other.
London Fletcher and Alfred Morris were also selected as alternates.
The presence of five Redskins players in Honolulu marks a definite change in national opinion. Griffin’s incredible rookie season, combined with peeling off 6 wins in a row, has put Washington back in the public football eye.
The Pro Bowl game itself is and still will be garbage and pointless, but it’s great to see the five guys being recognized – every last one of them deserves the honor bestowed on them.
Yeah, yeah, yeah – this is a day or six, and probably a couple of dollars short. The cool answer is that it took this long to work out the alcohol consumed during the Redskins thrilling 38-31 victory over the Cowboys last Thursday. The honest one is that I actually just forgot to actually POST the blog after I had written it. (Hey, maybe the alcohol can actually be blamed!)
I digress, here’s five no-longer-quick-thoughts on the game: Read the rest of this entry »
It was good for the Redskins and for Redskins fans, to get back on the winning side of the ledger this week. Facing a struggling team, and coming off an extra week off, the Redskins were expected to do exactly what they did on Sunday – dismantle the Philadelphia Eagles. Here are some quick thoughts about the game — Read the rest of this entry »
As a Marylander who lives in close proximity to Washington D.C., politics are unavoidable for me, especially when election time rolls around. These days, Marylanders are urged to vote for Question 7, Question 4, etc. Being inundated with political commercials is a quick way to ruin one’s football-watching experience.

Losses hurt. Division losses really hurt. Division losses thrown away in the waning moments of the game? Daggers.
Here’s the Good, The Bad and The Fugly from the New York Giants upsetting 27-23 upset of the Washington Redskins.
Robert Griffin III… surprise!!! Yeah it may seem like a broken record to those outside of the nation’s capital, but there isn’t a Redskins fan on the planet that is going to get tired of gushing about just how good this kid is. How about that 4th and wow? Arguably the play of the year so far in the NFL. Read the rest of this entry »
