    7 Crucial Waypoints on the Journey to a Redskins Resurgence

    by , 10-23-14 at 04:01 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    Forget Ď7 Minute Absí, I mean, Iíd recommend you go with the 6 minute version anyway. I believe there are 7 crucial actions the Washington Redskins must take if they are to revisit their former days of glory and return to a winning tradition.

    Let Griffin be Griffin. Weíve heard it before and we get it. RG3 is reckless. He plays with wild abandon. He canít slide. He wonít slide. RG-Knee. The ĎPistolí, ĎRead Optioní, running threat QB offense is dead. Griffin can only survive ...

    The Cowboys: Monday Night Madness

    by , 10-23-14 at 03:06 PM
    So....Dallas is playing their best football in years, the Redskins are playing musical chairs with QBs and generally underacheiving and making way more
    mistakes than we fans would like to see and it's a MNF game and Dallas fans are generally optimistic.

    Generally, but there is worry underneath that optimism-perhaps surprisingly-but worry nonetheless.

    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.

    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 ...
