  1. 2016 Week 17 - Giants @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Miles Monroe

    So, as I sit here, a scene from a Little Rascals episode comes to mind… the carrot dangling from a string urging a horse on. That’s our Redskins, and our carrot is a wild card spot. With Dallas putting the screws to Detroit, win and we’re in…… and no, don’t bring up a tie between Green Bay and Detroit, it’s not happening. I’ve been seeing a mixed bag of opinion around the net…. Why sneak in only to be a speed bump for another team. Of course, there’s ...

    Chicago Blognostication

    Full disclosure: I haven’t been as mad during and after a football game as I was Monday Night. That was atrocious. Terrible Horrible. I actually went to Thesaurus.com to find more synonyms: ghastly, abhorrent, heinous, apalling, dreadful. You get the idea. The playcalling was horrendous, the team was lethargic at best and the entire experience was inexcusable.

    So. On to Chicago. Yay.
  3. 2016 Week 15 - Panthers @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Knightingale


    I’ve got to pick a winner. One of these teams.

    Redskins or Panthers? Panthers or Redskins?

    I’ll come to the Panthers in a moment, but first let me set the stage for my thoughts and feelings.

    This year’s Redskins are the most damnably infuriating team I can remember us fielding in a long time.

    Looking back over recent times we’ve always kind of known what we’ve ...

    Phat Rob Phlattens Phrickn’ Philly

    That’s the headline that we should be reading come Monday morning or words to that effect. Back in week 6, Redskins put up 230 yards rushing against a 3-1 eGals team with a defense that was still pretty good against the run after only giving up one 100-yard game in the first four. The Skins rushed for more yards than anyone else has against Philly this season which was 40 better than second best Dallas. ...

    All in the Cards
    Time to earn respect! okay, even though losing to the turds on thanksgiving last week leaves a taste in our collective mouths equal to licking a dairy cow’s ass, it’s time to move on! What better way to move on then playing our one time NFC east foe in sunny Arizona.

    I’m not one to really dwell on nostalgia too much but playing the cards when they were in the NFC East usually made for some good games. It seems forever ...
  6. 2016 Week 12 - Redskins @ Cowboys

    Blognosticator - Neophyte

    Dallas Week.

    The very phrase conjures up images of Riggins, Hollywood Henderson, George Allen, Danny White, Dave Butz, Clint Longley, Darryl Grant, flex defenses, Hogs, Tom Landry, Santana Moss, Dorsett getting caught by Darrell on Monday night, and bouncing stands at RFK faster than you can rub any genies lamp.

    Anyone associated with the Skins knows this is important but honestly, it hasn’t meant a whole lot for some time due ...

    Blognostication 2016 – Redskins vs Packers

    The Redskins notched a significant win last week against the Minnesota Vikings. The significance was not so much about beating the suddenly downward-trending Vikings, it was about the Redskins rising to the occasion and taking care of business—which is not something they have done with any degree of consistency over the past quarter-century.

    What did the Redskins accomplish? They beat another team ...

  8. 2016 Week 10 - Vikings @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Fear the Spear

    We are now essentially looking at “halftime” of the season. Not only are we at the mid-point of our 16 games, but fittingly and fortunately for the Skins, they get their bye week exactly at the season mid-point, making this essentially a halftime for the season, in which they can figuratively return to their locker-room and regroup, make adjustments, and recover from their wounds.

    From the outset of the bye, though, things didn't ...
  9. 2016 Week 8 - Redskins @ Bengals (London)

    Blognosticator - SkinnedAussie

    Week 8 - Redskins v Bengals @ Wembley Stadium, London.

    If anyone was to say that the game is between two teams with a winning record, you would never guess this game is a Redskins v Bengals clash. Washington is coming off a close loss whereas Cincinnati beat Cleveland.

    Hopefully I'll get to see this game live, and if I do, I'll look at doing a follow up to see how wrong (or right) I was. I can't check at the moment as our ...
  10. 2016 Week 7 - Redskins @ Lions

    Blognostication – October 23—Detroit Lions/Ford Field

    Well, bear with me in my first attempt at blognostication. The Redskins are traveling to Ford Field to take on the 3-3 Detroit Lions. We are coming off a 4-game winning streak and the Lions a 2-game winning streak.

    This past game with Philadelphia showed that just PERHAPS our coaching staff is learning the fine art of balanced attack. With 34 Pass attempts, for 263 yards ...
