  • Pluck The Cowboys Thanksgiving Style


    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 »

    Vote YES for Question 10


    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.

    The Good, The Bad and The Fugly


    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.

    The Good

    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 »

    Ten Game Thoughts: Vikings


    It was another roller coaster ride for Redskins Nation on Sunday, as the Redskins struggled early, and then struggled to put the Vikings away after dominating through most of the middle of the game. In the end, Robert Griffin III’s two rushing touchdowns, proved more than Minnesota could handle, and allowed Washington to come away a 38-26 victory – their first home win in nine tries. The loss ended a three game winning streak for the Vikings, and dropped them to 4-2 on the season.

    How the option helps the Redskins


    I was rewatching some of Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings and wanted to make a quick note of how the misdirection from the triple option can fool opposing defenses.

    This play began with 6:06 left to play in the first half against a very solid Minnesota defense.

    Clearly we all know Robert Griffin III is the straw that stirs the Redskins’ drink. Here is visual evidence that shows how his amazing athletic ability helps fool one of the better defenses in the league. This is what happens when you have the right pieces involved along with the ability to mislead based off of that talent. Read the rest of this entry »

    Five Quick Thoughts: Falcons


    It was yet another tough experience for Redskins Nation, as Washington had every chance to hand Atlanta their first loss of the season; but in the end, it was the Falcons who came out on top 24-17. Here are some quick thoughts on the game:

    1) Robert Griffin III – Obviously the collective breaths of every Redskin fan on the planet, were held tight, when RGIII was drilled in the head. Mildly concussed, he wouldn’t return. Hopefully RGIII will recover quickly and be ready for next week, but will this be a wake up call to the importance of sliding for the young rookie? Tough is tough, but you don’t have to be careless to be tough. He needs to learn to protect himself a bit better, and live to fight another down. It’s hard to even suggest to someone with the kind of fire and integrity that RGIII has, that he should take the ‘easier route’ but that’s what he needs to do. His team needs him – for more than any one game, or any one play. Read the rest of this entry »

    RGIII Everywhere


    RGIII is everywhere.

    NFL.com is running a story titled, “RG3 and Redskins top NFL watchability power rankings.” It seems strange, considering that in the actual content of the article itself, the only mention of Griffin is, “Quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III make mediocre squads fascinating. I want to be there from the beginning with their careers.”

    It seems almost gratuitous to make the Redskins and Griffin the subject of the story’s title, when other than Washington being in a list of “Must Watch” teams, the only other mention of them is to call them a “mediocre squad.” Read the rest of this entry »

    Clinching a Dream


    Last night, the Washington Nationals did what was unthinkable just less than a handful of years ago. They clinched one of the toughest divisions in baseball.

    Upon winning the National League East, the Nats officially dethroned the reigning five-time division champion Philadelphia Phillies. Despite the 2-0 victory for the rivals who reside two hours up I-95, a changing of the guard managed to take place in their presence.

    At 96-64, winning the NL East pennant is a culmination of years of last-place finishes (five of eight since moving to D.C. to be exact) and a lack of a support system from Major League Baseball when ownership as well as major league and minor league talent were absent.

    For D.C. baseball fans, this title was 79 years in the making, with the last pennant coming before World War II. The success of this miraculous 2012 team will not only transition fans from an older era recalling the days of the Senators but will introduce proper baseball to a newer generation.

    Just for fun, here is video of Gio Gonzalez calling Nats owner Mark Lerner “The Pimp With the Limp.” Imagine Robert Griffin III calling Dan Snyder by that name.
