    The Panthers: David and Goliath?

    by , 11-19-15 at 05:22 PM
    9-0. Now that's a heady place to be, something Panthers fans are not used to experiencing.

    It will give you a lot of confidence, no doubt, but it doesn't erase in some Carolinsa fans minds the fact that the Redskins have been playing noticeably better lately and may not be the doormat bottom-feeder of recent seasons. Oh they expect to win but not all think it will be a cakewalk.

    So, the next step for the 2015 Washington Redskins, on their way to the division crown, demands we make a trip into the Fortress of Solitude, to defeat Superman.

    And we all know how you do that....

    ....with Kyrktonite.

    That's right boys and girls. By the time we finish with them, they'll seem more like Josey & The Pussycats!

    Sure, they're undefeated. Yes, they have a top 5 ...

  3. Week Ten Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    by , 11-18-15 at 06:34 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Week ten is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Saints. We also celebrate a milestone. This is the 100th blog from BBQ and it is an honor to serve the Redskins fans here at BGO. We knew the football game would be better than the previous week, but a blowout victory against an elite quarterback – the second one in two weeks – was a welcomed sight. As honest as we were about a lopsided loss, we will try to be forthright about a huge victory. So now it ...

    "If you don't like it, pitch better."

    A seven word sign that hangs in the locker area of current free agent MLB pitcher, David Price, which serves as a reminder for what he expects of himself every time he takes the mound. Simple, to the point, and truly powerful.

    The Washington Redskins are at a bit of a crossroads in the 2015 season. Sitting at 3-5 exactly at the midway point, they face an ever important question. ...

    The Saints: Marching into D.C.

    by , 11-12-15 at 06:12 PM
    I thought it would be nice to get away from a fan base as full of themselves and arrogant as Pats fans and get one that might look at playing the Redskins as a tough challenge and it was.

    New Orleans fans are unhappy. Very unhappy. And they're doubtful about beating the Redskins.

    The Saints have been kinda not real good lately and fans there are sick and pissed off, especially about their (lack of) defense. Fire Rob Ryan threads and comments are all ...
  6. Week Nine Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    by , 11-11-15 at 07:07 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Week nine is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Patriots. We knew it could get ugly and that was certainly the case, but it could’ve been much worse. After a few days of reflection it is time to be honest and recognize that the numerous injuries will limit the Redskins for the remainder of the season. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, and opinions. ...

    The Patriots: Who's Next?

    by , 11-07-15 at 12:03 PM
    Finally, after several weeks of opposing team fans posting concerns about playing the Redskins I encountered some good old fashioned disrespect.

    A lot of Pats fans pretty much dismiss all NFL teams not named the Broncos.

    The Redskins are dismissed at a "You're kidding, right?" level by many.

    There were some who gave the Redskins credit for what to many has been a surprising, if sporadic, decent level of play but they were few and far ...

    "I'll tell you this, in any fight it's the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch. And I know, if I'm gonna have any life any more it's because I'm still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that's what living is, the six inches in front of your face. Now I can't make you do it. You've got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think ya going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. Your gonna see a guy who ...

    by , 10-28-15 at 12:56 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Week seven is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Buccaneers. We will also hand out mid-term grades and offer the one and only in-season mock draft. We will try to make some sense of it all as BBQ goes the extra mile this week. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, opinions, and mocks. Also, we have some questions to close out week seven.

    Let’s take a look at the grades.

    The game against the ...

    The Colonel: ’All that hate’s gonna burn you up kid.’
    Robert: ‘Keeps me warm.’

    I’m not Russian.

    I don’t speak Russian.

    I don’t know any Russians. Hell – I don’t even particularly care for vodka.

    World War 3 is not here, but you wouldn’t know it talking to Washington Redskins fans, locked in mortal combat, even on the heels of an improbable ‘greatest comeback in franchise history’ win.

    You all know what ...
