Oh… The Redskins Kickers (Rant)


I admit it, I’m frustrated, I’m fed up, I’m exasperated – hang whatever you want on me – I’m sick and damn tied of my ulcer bleeding every time the Washington Redskins attempt a field goal.

I don’t have anything against Kai Forbath at all, but to me, he is just another in a very, very long line of terrible kicking decisions in the nation’s capital.

You can call that condemnation harsh all you want, the franchise’s track record speaks for itself. Read the rest of this entry »

Graham Cut – A Kicker’s Lament


As Redskins Nation runs rampant with relief over the cutting of Shayne Graham after just a one game tryout, it seemed prudent to look at the life of a kicker, and the obstacles that stand before them.

Shayne Graham stunk on Friday night. There isn’t any ifs, ands, or buts about it, the guy mailed in a groaner. For his efforts, he was immediately let go by the Washington Redskins. The third most accurate kicker in NFL history, got a ONE game tryout. So goes the life of an NFL kicker. It doesn’t matter what you’ve ever done, only what you’ve done lately. Further to that, while every other positional battle on the team likely gets the good grace of accepting that cohesiveness may play a role in their development, a kicker apparently does not.

So it’s a bye week, and for Redskin fans, that seems to mean a whole lot of people walking around with their heads down. Who can blame them? It’s been a tough first seven games.

Since the bye week is almost at the half-way point, I thought I’d take a look at the things that were ‘good’ for the Redskins in the first half of 2009. Read the rest of this entry »

They Won? Sorry… I’m Waiting for the Other Shoe…


Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

Ok, I admit it. The homer in me is thrilled with the result today.

The Redskins got a W. The offense found a little of it’s mojo, albeit not until the second half, with both a rare Redzone touchdown, and an even rarer deep strike for a 59 yard touchdown. The defense played pretty tough, and got the plays when they needed them. They consistently got off the field on third down. Tackling was solid. Read the rest of this entry »
