Slow clap wants Dallas


Hat tip Extreme Skins all over this DMN article with accompanying YouTube video: Redskins fans, who chanted "We want Dallas!!!" late in last week's win over the Cardinals, might consider Sept....

Vegas likes the Redskins more than most, if not in this game


A few years ago Dan Steinberg suggested that we hand the enormously consequential BCS rankings over to Vegas: I asked another LSVC oddsmaker, Sean Van Patten, whether the OddsMakers Top 25 would...

Bubba Tyer with calming voice on Jason Taylor injury, also hates the Cowboys more than anyone


Pet TORB: [Jason Taylor's] situation escalated into high drama for no immediately apparent reason. Taylor made an impromptu appearance at Redskins Park today, and mentioned that doctors had...

Redskins remember the Ewoks


(You are not reading about this because I refuse to have anything to say on the subject. Readers are free to discuss whatever they'd like.) Long odds those furry critters had against the evil...

Yah so what have you done for the Redskins lately?


This is an attempt at a regular feature on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays depending on how much you hate it detailing the week's NFL action and the impacts, if any, particular games had on Your...

Redskins remain undefeated at home, beat Cardinals 24-17 (Quick postgame thoughts)


Quick thoughts from the game, before I go to enjoy the rest of my Sunday. Just looking over the boxscore, the stats don't show any great disparity between two teams, except: Turnovers Cardinals...


Open Thread for Arizona Cardinals @ Washington Redskins

Today, 1PM Eastern, which is in about an hour. NFL Distribution Maps say the game is playing in my hood, which means I might even be near a computer to join you pranksters in open threads. NFL...

Did you hear that Vinny Cerrato has a radio show? Cool story, bro.


Typical blogging behavior: You read a thousand things about the same subject, get flustered over the coverage, and then become part of the problem by complaining about it. This is foolish of me,...

More Arizona Cardinals @ Washington Redskins Key Matchups


Once more into the breach, dear friends, we go with Arizona Cardinals blogger extraordinaire cgolden, on the remaining Cardinals @ Redskins key matchups. Post is also up over at Revenge of the...


The Myth of Momentum

Posted with permission from myself (here). Blizburgh told me to post this on the front page but neglected to tell me that I don't have front page privileges. He's stupid. This is a post about...

Momentum Shmomentum


There it is: force or speed of movement; impetus, as of a physical object or course of events: The car gained momentum going downhill. Her career lost momentum after two unsuccessful films. L...

Key Matchups for the Cardinals @ Redskins game


Back to actual (rather than theoretical) football. My sincerest apologies for selfishly not posting much besides this massive nerdfest. I write a near 5,000 word essay on the two point conversion...

Coach Zorn inexcusably leaves valuable points on the board, or, why "Extra" "Points"... aren't


In his short tenure as our Head Coach, Jim Zorn already has proven the disturbing proclivity for leaving points on the board. This kind of dramatic coaching error is simply inexcusable moving...

Jim Zorn is no longer a losing coach


Just like that the Redskins beat the Saints 29-24, a team billed by many as one of the best in the NFC outside the East. Redskins move to 1-1 under new Head Coach Jim Zorn. No one wanted it more...


New Orleans Saints @ Washington Redskins home opener

Game is scheduled for 1:00PM Eastern. I'm writing this open thread as of Friday, two days before kickoff, because I'll be traveling through hurricane weather potentially at some point between the...

Greg Blache fears spiteful pantheist gods


Earlier this week we wondered why Carlos Rogers ain't got such great hands and the impact that could have on us defensively. I contemplated that his dropsies could account, over a healthy season,...

Chris Cooley misses some practice due to a quad injury


The Washington Times and the Washington Post are like divorced parents who I don't know who to talk to when I want something for fear of distressing the other. I have no sources except those...

Marcus Washington joins Durrant Brooks on special teams


Per The Times: "Every game won't go the way it did against the Giants," linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti said. "Marcus will give us whatever we need that week, like last week when he played on...

Chris Cooley hates walls


Comes with video, title speaks for itself. He wanted to prove that he could do his Fantasy Files play (where he reaches through a wall to catch the football). I am now a believer.

You cannot compare Fred Smoot's hands to Carlos Rogers' hands


If nothing else, that's what one should take away from Dan Steinberg's investigative piece into the state of Carlos Rogers' hands, per the mouths of Coach Zorn, Fred Smoot, and Rogers (as himself): ...



This post is not really Washington Redskins related but rather Hogs Haven related. I warned you so don't blame me if you find none of the below the least bit interesting or topical. I wanted to...

Malcolm Kelly is just tired of sitting around


Sitting around has never exhausted me and indeed that's more the remedy to exhaustion where I'm from. But at least per Redskins Insider, Malcolm Kelly has taken that unconventional approach to...

Late Sunday games open thread slash HH fantasy football update


Probably a bit late but I've spent much of the afternoon our and about, watching football. Games I watched today were Jacksonville at Tennessee and a little bit of Pittsburgh and Houston. Since we...

Is Chris Samuels a dirty player?


The good news, hat tip Big Blue View, is that Mathias Kiwanuka will live: I was already in the tunnel under the stadium when I heard he was injured on the last play of the Giants 16-7 win...

Smoot smacked with back, er, hip injury


Still absorbing the results of last night's frustrating loss to the Giants. And by absorbing I mean day drinking here I come! There's a lot going on in the Redskins blogosphere regarding the game....

A game happened? I wouldn't know anything about that. Here are some Washington Redskins cheerleaders.


[Note by Skin Patrol, 09/05/08 12:07 PM EDT ] TORB (The Octagon Of Pain!) beat me to the punch on the MAXIM story this morning, here. I hate being last to the dance. I hate being last to the...

We lost, I'm angry, etc.


These are my brief, uncollected thoughts having been drinking for most of the game and existing in a bitterly disappointed state, currently. I think these things are best analyzed with the benefit...


Redskins @ Giants Season Opener Gameday Open Thread

We made it. The season is upon us. Soon, at least; as of this writing (though not publishing) we're a good chunk of hours removed from the game. That said, we're real close. Before the game, and...

Redskins Roundtable


Indebted to Dillweed of Post Game Heroes [ED NOTE: Their post is up here] for taking the iniative on the initial Redskins Roundtable, currently involving just a small smattering of questions...


Blogger Deathsport Picks

Here are my picks for the first week of Blogger Deathsport now expanded, I believe, for the single and sole purpose of increasing my shame. REMEMBER: I am horrible. If you are a gambler, you might...
