  1. 2016 Week 6 - Eagles @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Kel Varnsen

    What is it about seeing your favorite football team win a game that makes Monday feel so good? I’ve wondered that for many years and I still can’t figure it out. No matter what it is, there is no denying that Redskins fans have enjoyed the last three Mondays. After five games, I still can’t figure out how good this team really is. I’m not sure if the players on the team know either. On one hand, they are one bad interception from being 4-1 and in first ...

  2. 2016 Week 5 - Redskins @ Ravens

    Blognosticator - Shi no Tenshi

    Well, we’re a quarter of the way through the season. It’s been an interesting month, with us ending up with about the record most predicted at the beginning of the season, but for some reason nothing feels settled. Even at 2-2, we aren’t quite sure yet what our team is going to be. Some are high on the positives, while others are focused on all the things done wrong. Both viewpoints have been pretty accurate.

    Our team is actually doing ...

  3. 2016 Week 4 - Browns @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Henry

    Thank you, Washington Redskins, for beating That Team in Blue. I was not looking forward to the idea of doing this entry on the heels of a three-game losing streak. I don't really like writing about the team when they lose all the time, and, frankly, who likes reading about them? So for all our sakes, thanks Redskins.

    I'd hate to be 0-3 with Cleveland on deck. We don't want them to think they can beat us. Honestly, Cleveland's biggest problem ...

  4. 2016 Week 3 - Redskins @ Giants

    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 played this season. ...

    It’s the Wednesday after, and the post-mortems on the Redskins season-opening woodshed job at the hands of the Pittsburgh have been plentiful and thorough.

    The micro angles have all been covered:

    On offense, Kirk Cousins looked average. The running game went nowhere. Newcomers parsed all summer—RB Rob Kelley, WR Josh Docston, LB Sua Cravens—were non-factors. Good drives and scoring opportunities resulted ...

  6. 2016 Week 1 - Steelers @ Redskins

    Blognosticatior - Neophyte

    So here we are…on the eve of the kickoff to the 2016 season and there is an air of excitement about all things Burgundy and Gold. I see a wide ranging list of predictions for this team in year 2 of McLovin and year 3 of Gruden, everything from the bottom of the division to a Super Bowl appearance and it all starts Monday Night, in primetime, against the Steelers.

    Before I go any further I have an admission. I have not seen a single down of ...

  7. 2015 Wildcard Game - Packers @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Om

    It’s a rare treat to write about an upcoming Redskins playoff game, much less one they can reasonably be expected to win. Nonetheless, that is what exactly has come, shall we say, to pass.

    Which leads directly to one of the two key components I believe Redskins vs Packers will come down to.

    1. The Redskins passing offense.

    The first key to continuing the 2015 Redskins unlikely march to respectability (and beyond?) for another ...

  8. 2015 Week 17 - Cowboys v Redskins

    Blognosticator - McD5

    Happy New Year everyone! Week 17 is here, and there's a ton to look forward to as Redskins fans. Most importantly--we'll have a week 18 this year. And how sweet that is! I'm sure that I'm not the only one waiting for next Sunday to get here as quickly as possible.

    But we have one more game left--a date with one of our most hated rivals. We'll be taking the show on the road this weekend to Dallas to hopefully put an exclamation point on what's been ...

  9. 2015 Week 16 - Eagles v Redskins

    Blognosticator - SkinsOrlando

    Well, here we are, where is that you may ask yourself? It’s a late season chance to clinch a home playoff game and something quite frankly after the first 6 games of the season seemed about as possible as Lazarus being resurrected from the dead. However, like Lazarus, it wasn’t over and we’ve crawled back from the depths to reach a 7-7 record, a “control your own destiny” situation against a team that also has a chance to proverbially “control their ...

  10. 2015 Week 15 - Bills @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Elephant


    On my drive home this evening I was listening to talk radio, when an advertisement came on the radio that stated, "Join us for the Redskins' push for the playoffs." I pondered the thought for a moment..."playoff push." Then it hit me, on December 16, 2015 the Washington Redskins are actually in the hunt for a division title and berth into the playoffs. Some will discount this because our division is woeful, but it sure does sound good to me.
