    The Pre-season: The Bucs-The Backups Step Up.

    by , 08-27-14 at 05:13 PM
    Well, at least one Tampa Bay Bucs fan board actually had a thread about Friday's pre-season tilt with the Skins.


    All the posts were made before the announcement of the Patriots trading Logan Mankins to the Bucs.

    On the field, the last chance for 22 (or fewer) current Bucs to remain Bucs for the regular season. Our D'line looks stout, but I remain somewhat concerned with the back end.Our Safeties and

    The Pre-season: All's Quiet on the Raven's Front.

    by , 08-22-14 at 09:43 AM
    I tried waiting out Ravens fans, hoping at some point they might actually mention the Redskins and Saturday's game but across about a half dozen

    Ravens fan forums they-like all NFL teams-are arguing roster spots, who should stay or go, that kind of thing, but nothing substantive about

    what facing the current Redskins team Saturday might be like.

    The only mention of the Skins was one thread consisting of the normal smack-talking direspect we've endured ...

    The Pre-Season: The Browns are in town

    by , 08-15-14 at 10:20 PM
    Browns fans have been talking about Jonny Manziel a lot-particularly recently as to whether he would get the start against the Skins. It looks now like Brian Hoyer will start-maybe the first quarter at least-but we'll get to see "Johnny Football" at some point-maybe in the second quarter.

    Anyway, I put together some posts in this (pre)-season's first Redskins Recon because they do relate to Monday night's game and because there is mention and allusions to our old fav, Kyle ...

  4. The Evolution of a Name

    by , 08-06-14 at 05:16 PM (Cake or Death?)
    I have stayed out of the Redskins name controversy because I am conflicted about it. However, after hearing Daniel Snyder give an interview, and listening to the subsequent talking heads reaction to said interview, I feel compelled to join the discussion. For once, I thought Mr. Snyder nailed it. Absolutely perfectly.

    (my one quibble would be the timing. Just as training camp starts and we all start to focus on the on-the-field action instead of the name controversy seems like ...

    Offensive

    No.
    I知 not talking about the team name, paleface. Not even close chief.
    But these Redskins, glorious and storied moniker and all, will be the most offensive team in pro football in 2014.

    I知 going to engage in some bold talk today. It痴 true, my name is John and I知 a homer. I知 familiar with the 12 steps. I even watch 選ntervention on A&E when time allows. But I don稚 need Redskins fan rehab like I have for most of the 20+ year痴 worth of offseasons. Not this time ...

    by , 05-27-14 at 09:22 AM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    It may seem a bit early to predict a fifty-three man roster and practice squad, but this particular blog will come with plenty of updates until the actual roster/practice squad is formally announced. Feel free to post your own predictions (post as many as you desire). Please keep any disagreements and debates clean and professional.

    Let痴 get the first roster prediction in the books.

    Quarterbacks:

    Finding Homer

    by , 05-12-14 at 02:20 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    Amidst the frenzy of post-NFL Draft dissection, the inevitable occurs. The more jaded (they would call themselves 喪ealistic) wring their hands over lost opportunities and busts selected even before a single practice has occurred. On the other side of the spectrum, the 蘇omers (they would call themselves 組ood fans) applaud the genius of their NFL front office, whose picks in this year痴 draft will surely vault their beloved franchise into relevancy and take them to the Promised Land.

  8. the 2014 schedule?

    by , 04-27-14 at 06:30 PM (Well, what about -)

    The one thing I think we can all agree on is that the game isn't played on paper. That being said -

    Compared to last season -

    Do the Redskins have a more favorable schedule in 2014?
    Strength of teams playing - about a wash. They don't get GB, Den or KC (Skins 0-3). They do get Sea, Indy and Az. They don't get Det, Oak, SD, Atl or Chi (Skins 3-2). They do get Hou, Jac, TB, Rams and Tenn. They still get 9ers & Vikes (Skins 0-2). I think we can figure

    With apologies in advance to the great Johnny Cash

    Signed a receiver in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
    BGO痴 been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since Chip Kelly kicked him out.
    We致e signed Jackson, you better start lookin round,

    You値l never run him down.

    Well, go on talkin down Jackson; go ahead and tell yourself.

  10. An Open Letter to DeSean

    by , 04-02-14 at 10:07 AM (Cake or Death?)
    Dear DeSean,
    You'll have to forgive some of us. For every one Redskins fan excitedly jumping up and down this morning upon hearing the news of your signing, there is another fan, like myself, huddled in the fetal position in the corner. We've been hurt before, you see. In fact, I was at the Y this morning, sporting one of Skins workout shirts, and was accosted by a fellow weight-loser about the soundness of this signing. She asked me about all the other high priced stars the team has ...
