    Be seated.

    "Men, this stuff that some sources sling around about Washington wanting out of this war, not wanting to fight, is a crock of bullshit. Redskins love to fight, traditionally. All real Redskins love the sting and clash of battle. You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your team and your teammates. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, ...

    The Titans: Star power?

    No matter how abysmally the Redskins fail to meet fan expectations other teams fans, especially if their team is similarly disappointing find reasons to fear us.

    We have a few players whose stellar pefrformances have definitely not been overlooked by Titans fans.

    The Titans have QB questions of their own which, of course, throws everything out of kilter.

    Hey all... Happy week #7 of the 2014 NFL season, better known as the
    time where the Raiders, Jets, Jags, Rams and yes of course our
    Washington REDSKINS' fans start realizing we were all duped again.
    Yeah, I'm not known for painting a rosy picture and I fully admit that
    I haven't been paying 1/4 of the attention I normally give this team for
    the past few weeks, but this is where I'm supposed to talk about the
    game ...

    Week Six Grades

    Welcome to week six questions and grades as the Redskins put forth a lackluster and (yet, another) frustrating game against the Cardinals. The loss was highlighted by a late quarter meltdown from Kirk Cousins and fans of the burgundy and gold are in meltdown mode too. Feel free to offer your own grades, opinions, suggestions, and ideas. Also, we have some questions to close out this sixth week of action.

    Letís take a look at the grades.

    Week Five Grades

    Welcome to week five questions and grades as the Redskins put forth a spirited, but frustrating game against the Seahawks. The loss brought shades of hopefulness and silver linings to dedicated fans of the burgundy and gold and some agonizing moments too. Feel free to offer your own grades, opinions, suggestions, and ideas. Also, we have some questions to close out this fifth week of action.

    Letís take a look at the grades.

    The Cardinals-Injuries, Injuries

    by , 10-09-14 at 02:59 PM
    Injuries are one of the most hellish circumstances a football team and its fans endure.

    We Redskins fans are painfully aware of this-so are Cards fans-even though they aren't in quite as bad shape as we are in that respect.

    Not a lot of chatter online about the game from Arizona fans-not a lot of chatter from them about anything actually. They may have the fewest currently operating fan forums of any NFL team I've run across lately. They also had the fewest ...

    When I first agreed to write a Blognostication, it was at the start of a new season under a new regime. The team had an up-and-coming, no-nonsense head coach; RGIII had fully healed from his disastrous injury 20 months before; we even had a special teams coach who preached discipline. While I didnít have terribly high expectations for the season, I also didnít think that a 3-2 start, followed by a strong push at the end to finish 7-9, was completely ...

    Itís what we saw last Monday night in Kansas City as a home team on the ropes bounced back to absolutely dismantle the New England Patriots.

    Itís what we saw this last weekend as a team and coach that were utterly embarrassed, rose to the occasion to stun the Pittsburgh Steelers in a last second win.

    Many years ago, in what now seems a former life, a lot of people claimed that I was allegedly a sports bookie ...

    The Seahawks-Spy versus Spy?

    by , 10-02-14 at 02:09 PM
    As you might imagine, most Seahawks fans are pretty optimistic about next Monday night.

    Most. (I'm encountering this phenomenon a lot lately.)

    Unlike most visits to opposing fan forums there aren't a whole lot of long threads about the game.

    There is , however, something else different about this Redskins Recon though.

    I found a copycat. Sort of.

    Actually I found two copycats.

    There are ...

  10. The Tipping Point

    by , 10-01-14 at 09:26 PM (Cake or Death?)
    No, I'm not predicting some massive crisis for the NFL whereby the tens of millions of rabid fans who devour the NFL each Sunday (and Thursday) suddenly decide to divest themselves of the spectacle in pursuit of other, more moral endeavors. No, I'm talking about something far more serious. My own personal tipping point. I think we're getting close to it.

    I love the Redskins. I love the history, I love the players, I love the coaches, I love the owne... all right, too far. I love ...
