    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’s get the first roster prediction in the books.

    Quarterbacks:
    Robert Griffin, III
    Kirk Cousins
    Colt McCoy ...

    My off-beat look at the trials, tribulations, and triumphs

    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 ‘realistic’) wring their hands over lost opportunities and busts selected even before a single practice has occurred. On the other side of the spectrum, the ‘homers’ (they would call themselves ‘good fans’) applaud the genius of their NFL front office, whose picks in this year’s draft will surely vault their beloved franchise into relevancy and take them to the Promised Land.

  3. 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

    Jackson!

    by , 04-02-14 at 04:28 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    With apologies in advance to the great Johnny Cash

    Signed a receiver in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
    BGO’s been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since Chip Kelly kicked him out.
    We’ve signed Jackson, you better start lookin’ round,
    Cause if you blink your eyes
    You’ll never run him down.

    Well, go on talkin’ down Jackson; go ahead and tell yourself.
    The mans bad news, cause the signs he use, NFC gonna need some help
    Cause

  5. 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 ...

    by , 02-25-14 at 05:37 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Like previous years, BBQ will do a series of mock drafts and will provide continual updates based on team needs, free agency additions/losses, and injuries. Another mock will posted in mid March (after free agency opens) and will be updated weekly at that juncture. The frequency of mocks will increase as we get closer to the draft and it will be a daily feature in the final week. Feel free to add your own ideas and mocks as we go along.

    Trying to get a feel for what a new coach ...

  7. Offseason Edition, Free Agency 2014

    by , 02-06-14 at 07:54 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    It is time to put the miserable 2013 season behind us and look forward to free agency, the draft, and a new coaching staff. In this first edition of the offseason of free agency, we will take a look at players that the Redskins could target, re-sign, release, and tender. We will continue this thread with updates until the start of the new season – March 11. After that time, periodic updates will follow. The first offseason mock draft will be posted in about two weeks and will have regular updates ...

  8. Quarterback Questions And Answers

    by , 01-29-14 at 05:51 AM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Just over one year ago, we had no questions about our quarterback situation. Robert Griffin, III was the unquestionable starter (even though he was facing an offseason of rehabilitation) and Kirk Cousins was the reliable backup. Unfortunately, the 2013 season happened and the Redskins were facing a long offseason with many issues and challenges. No one disputes that Griffin is still the starter, but concerns about his injury, effectiveness, leadership, flamboyance, football knowledge, and team ...

  9. Evaluating The Season’s Predictions

    by , 01-13-14 at 07:51 AM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    In August of 2013, the Redskins were the defending NFC East champions and Robert Griffin, III looked as if he was progressing nicely in his rehabilitation from ACL/LCL surgery. Optimism was reigning and loftier goals were planned. BBQ had bold expectations too and offered predictions for all sixteen games. Let’s take a look at each game we present analyses and a grade for BBQ’s prognostications.

    Jay Gruden to the Redskins-Views from the opposition-and more

    by , 01-12-14 at 06:45 PM
    I was requested to do a Redskins Recon-I was actually planning to do something like this anyway-on reactions among our NFCE rivals' fans to the
    hiring of Jay Gruden by the Redskins as head coach and am of course glad to oblige. I decided to add teams from the AFC North because they had
    played against his Bengals offense and they might have some interesting comments.


    Boy, was I right there-but it was not quite what I was expecting. There were some surprises ...
