    Redskins Recon-The Preseason: The Jaguars

    by , 09-01-15 at 03:21 PM
    After the intense interest shown by Ravens fans in the upcoming preseason game with the Skins, visiting Jags fan forums was like a visit to the Mojave desert.

    Granted, they don't have the most...interested...fan base in the NFL, but there was not much conversation about

    playing the Redskins and what there was seemed to be about the merits of playing Blake Bortles or siting him (Does every NFL team seem to

    have QB questions now?)

    And the ...

    Redskins Recon-The Preseason: The Ravens

    by , 08-27-15 at 12:42 PM
    Maybe it's the fact that this is the third preseason game-the one where everyone gets a glimpse of what the current version of what the starting lineup will look like playing another teams version of what their starting lineup will look like.

    It could be the geographical proximity of the Ravens and Redskins to each other.

    Whatever it was, the problems of finding hardly anybody saying anything about the upcoming game with the Redskins for a Redskins Recon disappeared ...

    Redskins Recon-The Preseason: The Lions

    by , 08-18-15 at 11:45 PM
    Preseason game 2-against the Lions looms and once again preseason individual games take on their usual air of "Who we playing now?"

    The preseason is being taken by many fans, myself included, as not all that important in the scheme of things other than an extension

    of training camp-a chance to evaluate new players-and new coaches as well; the beginning of the weeding-out process to finalize the roster and

    depth ...

    Redskins Recon-The Preseason: First Up, the Browns

    by , 08-11-15 at 10:21 AM
    The first preseason game approaches and it couldn't come soon enough-I'm tired of the talk, rumors, speculations, high praise and hatchet jobs-I want to see, after
    one of the busiest and face-changing off seasons I've seen the Redskins have in quite a while-just what have the Redskins wrought?

    First up-the Browns. Their fans are wondering about the same things the Redskins and every other NFL team's fans are wondering about-new players, in some cases
    new coaches-both ...
  5. The Fifty-Three Man Roster And Practice Squad, 2015

    by , 06-16-15 at 05:54 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. The team gathers today for a mandatory mini-camp and the regular season will be here before you know it. Feel free to post your own predictions (post as many as you desire). Please keep any disagreements and debates clean and professional.

    Living in Missouri

    by , 06-11-15 at 02:45 PM (BGO.C.D.)
    Show me.

    Historians attribute Missouri’s ‘Show Me’ moniker to U.S. Congressman Willard Duncan Vandiver, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1897 to 1903. While a member of the U.S. House Committee on Naval Affairs, Vandiver attended an 1899 naval banquet in Philadelphia. In a speech there, he declared, "I come from a state that raises corn and cotton and cockleburs and Democrats, and frothy eloquence neither convinces nor satisfies me. I am from Missouri. ...

    Why We Don’t Care

    The 2014 season will come to an end by later this evening as a Super Bowl Champion is crowned. Two weeks ago, each team played the penultimate game in their conference and now they have a chance to win it all. To be sure, there is a lot of excitement from fans of both teams today and each side is hoping for the ultimate bragging rights over the next several months. A parade in downtown Boston or Seattle will take place in the coming days and it is certain to be ...

    Recon Special part 2-Cowboys fans and the Callahan defection

    by , 01-16-15 at 10:43 AM
    Well, we seem to have stirred up a bit of turmoil among Dallas fans by grabbing Callahan. Some seem to take a "Good riddance" stance but a lot are not very happy with him leaving...especially to join the Redskins.


    Anyone want to try to explain this one?

    What happened that he would want to sign to Washington? Either he hated Dallas or Washington just paid him some crazy money.

    Recon Special-Chargers fans react to Berry coming to the Redskins

    by , 01-14-15 at 03:25 PM
    I thought I'd check in with Bolts fans to see what their reaction to the Joe Barry becoming our new DC might be.

    To be honest, the majority don't seem all that broken-hearted.


    Now the Redskins are interviewing Joe Barry for their DC position. Don't these idiots know that our coaches suck?


    dont wanna change any of our coaches
    they got 4th string guys to perform
  10. Free Agency, The Mock Drafts, 2015 (Continual Updates)

    by , 01-13-15 at 04:24 PM (Burner's Burning Questions)
    Welcome to the 2015 offseason. We are taking a different approach for the new football year as we combine our mocks with the free agency period. We’ll have periodic updates as warranted and will use just this one entry instead of posting multiple blogs.

    In about a week or so we will begin an in depth look at free agency. The first mock will come later this week and then it will be on something of a hiatus until early March. The mocks will slowly increase in number as we get closer ...
