    Behind Enemy Lines - Dear Jay

    Dear Jay,

    You don’t know me, at least not personally but I guess you could say you know me because I am a Redskins fan and as such, you know a lot of us. Yes, I just used your first name like we are buds, although trust me, right now we are definitely not buds. You see, I’m not buds with thieves and less you think that isn’t possible let me explain that you have taken years off my life and stolen my hope. And faith. And trust.

    Stop! Don’t put this letter down ...

    A Thousand Cuts

    Labor Day Weekend. The traditional end of summer, never mind that many of us will have summer heat and humidity for another 6 weeks. The traditional beginning of school, never mind that some kids have nearly 4 weeks in classrooms by now. The traditional marker for the beginning of football season, never mind that the pros don’t kickoff for another week or that training camp has been going for 2 months.

    Growing up I lived for this weekend from January on. There was just something ...

    Just One Game...Or Is It?

    Its just one game.

    The fans of 16 teams are all saying that today after opening weekend. Half the league is clinging doggedly to the same mantra

    Its just one game. Its just one game.

    I am left to wonder if they are clicking their heals together hopefully and holding their dog when they say it?

    But is it really just one game if you are expecting the team to compete for the playoffs. Or, perish the thought, more than that? Is it just ...

    Odds, Ends and a Last Hail

    Been a long time since this place got used Too long. I had a hell of a time cleaning the cobwebs out so I could move back in today. And dont even get me started about the dust. Ill be sneezing for weeks.

    But its clean now and ready for use. Hopefully it will be regular use too.

    I dont really have anything big for this first week, just a few quick hitters of varying importance.

    So, Year 1 of the Gruden Era begins officially on Sunday. Good times. ...

    Slow Down Chicken Little

    Despite the fact that it is hot enough here to get your steak done medium rare right off the hoof out in the field across the street from my place, I have been spending a fair amount of time outside this week. You see, I have been watching the sky. No, I am all that interested in clouds. Not a weather bug and there have not been any wild storms to view either.

    Nope. I have been watching for The Fall.

    I was sure it was coming too. It has been predicted everywhere I go ...

    Quietly

    If you know me at all you know I have had my issues with Dan Snyder. I have made no secret of it either. Not in my blog or in my posts to various Redskin fan sites, BGO included. I like to think I am hard but fair where Dan comes in. Unlike some, I have always thought his heart was in the right place, it was just his head that was the problem.

    However, I was thrilled when, two and half years ago, Snyder fired Vinny and hired Allen and Shanahan.

    To be totally honest ...

    Matters of the Heart

    First, let us be clear about something. I am not a doctor, nor did I ever play one on TV. I also didnt sleep in a Holiday Inn last night. What I do seem to have is more than 2 brain cells to rub together, which appears to be more than we can say for most sports reporters.

    However, even with my limited medical knowledge, I know that the concussion we all saw Griff sustain on Sunday had nothing to do with the fact that at 6-2 and 218 he is not as big as Newton and Luck. This fact, ...

    Creativity Wanted, Apply Within

    I have always believed that coaches coach and players play and I work hard to keep that in mind as I am watching football games. I try to look the play call, or what I think is the play call, and grade what I see accordingly.

    This view has afforded me the option to defend either players or coaches at times when few others will. It also allows me to throw either under the bus.

    And this week I am throwing Jim Haslett under the biggest damn bus I can find.

    The Longest Week

    It is the end of the longest short week of the year. You know the one; it follows the most frustrating long weekend of the year. Labor Day weekend. Why frustrating you ask? Well, it is September and a three day weekend and I dont have any football, not even any of the faux pre-season football the NFL tries to pass off as the real deal.

    And then we follow the 3 day weekend with a 4 day work week that feels like a month largely because we have had our appetite wetted for our favorite ...

    Up Next on Mythbusters: The Real Price of Late Season Wins

    Two blogs in two days? Holy Word docx Batman, what's gotten into Neo?

    RGIII, that's what.

    There is a lot of talk right now about records, specifically wins and losses, and the impact on what we did last week with the Rams when we traded up to #2. So lets look at it, shall we?

    The Skins started the year off 3-1 and looked good so we will start with the idea that 3 wins was the minimum we could have had last season. It was at this point that the wheels ...
