      With a frustrating two weeks behind us... thought I'd post some lighhearted info from the past...

      The Redskins Fight Song…Do you know the words? Are you sure?

      These are the words to HAIL TO THE REDSKINS, words by Corinne Griffith, as printed in the Redskins Review (game program) for the November 18, 1945 game against the Boston Yanks:

      Hail to the Redskins
      Hail Victory.
      Braves on the warpath.
      Fight for old D.C.
      Scalp ‘em,
      ...

      Greetings from the international headquarters of BBQ.

      Week two is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Cowboys. It was a contest that gave fans plenty of hope, but it became a contest that left many of us shaking our heads in disgust. We will try to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades, evaluations and questions. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, questions, and opinions.

      Let’s take ...

      The Giants, coming off an improbable win over the Saints, now sit at 2-0 and the Skins, after stumbling to an inauspicious 0-2 start come to visit amid lockerroom turmiol, ex-player recriminations and fan dismay hoping to right the ship before it runs aground.

      Giants fans haven't been ignoring the seemingly chronic hullabaloo surrounding the Redskins in its latest incarnation but they have their own worries and concerns about the game mostly dealing with deficiences ...

      0-2. This is a number I'm used to.

      Kirk says his receivers have every right to be pissed at him (or words to that effect!). Once again, we took chunks out of the yardage required until we got to the red zone, then it was field goal heaven. When we did threaten, the ball was picked off. Fortunately, it wasn't a pick 6 as one of those would have put Dallas further in front.

      I was hoping the 'Dak Attack' novelty had worn off by week two, but when Dak led the Cowgirls ...

      Perspective

      In 2013, Peyton Manning threw for an incredible 5,477 yards. In doing so, he broke the all-time NFL record for the most passing yards in a single season.

      5,544 yards. After two games, that's the pace that Kirk Cousins is on this very season.

      Hard to believe, right?

      Ask just about any Skins fan, and they'll quickly give you a hot take on how badly Kirk Cousins has ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On the injury report:
      “Did not participate today was DeSean Jackson, knee and ankle; Kendall Reyes, groin. Limited was [Martrell] Spaight, concussion; Trent Williams, knee; [Chris] Baker, rib, elbow, toe, knee; [Josh] Doctson, Achilles. Full were [Deshazor] Everett, knee; [Su’a] Cravens, hip; [Matt] Jones, shoulder, and that’s it. And then surgery, Kedric Golston had hamstring surgery repair today.”

      On WR DeSean Jackson’s injury and Gruden’s expectations going into Sunday:
      “I think it happened around the third quarter. He started feeling a little pain, but he stayed in the game and finished the game. But, expectations are, I have no idea. It depends on how he’s feeling tomorrow and the next day. Hopefully he’ll be OK.”

      On the plan for CB Josh Norman this week:
      “I don’t know; we’re working on a plan right now. We will have a plan for Josh and our whole secondary but the exact plan I don’t think I’ll be talking about on Wednesday, so I don’t know where that came from but we’ll have a plan for sure for Odell [Beckham Jr.] and the whole Giant football team. They have a good group of receivers. Shepard’s playing extremely well, Victor Cruz, Eli, they have a good running game. So we have to have a plan for all of them.”

      On if he has had a conversation with Norman about Beckham:
      “I think that happened last year on another team ...

      Redskins and Cowboys Renew Series That America Waits and Watches For

      In Hollywood, the Cowboys and Indians are always fighting it out. In the NFL, it’s basically the same. Except these Cowboys wear blue and grey and do their rompin’ in Dallas, and these Redskins wear burgundy and gold and do their hootin’ and hollerin’ in Washington.

      But when they clash, no prisoners ...

      Week one is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Steelers. It was a contest that started on a high note, but progressed into a shameful display of ineptitude. We will try to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades, evaluations and questions.

      The Redskins and the Romo-less Cowboys, both coming off opening losses both desparate for a win.

      And both loaded with a fanbase full of angst, worry and whistling-in-the-dark hope about how the rest of the season might go.

      Dallas fans are worried about substitute QB Dak Prescott, worried about a shaky pass D-and to a notable extent not at all impressed with the job Jason Garret

      is doing at head coach.

      (Sound familiar Redskins ...

      That has been the cry for as long as I can remember. Week 2 sees us hosting a Romo-less Cowgirls, but having Dak is the pilot's chair should make it easy for our D-line. However, the easier it is, the harder our D-line seems to make it.

      Cullen Jenkins will be an instant upgrade, but will not start. I'd give him a couple of weeks to get to know our scheme. However, he could start immediately and told to just get on their side of the ball and give their runner less room. Speaking ...
