    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 10 vs. Minnesota Vikings

    This week’s Recon comes on the heels of an improbable and near-miraculous come from behind win in Seattle. The win puts the Burgundy and Gold at a still relevant 4-4 and infuses some much needed energy and promise into the injury-riddled 2017 season. The Redskins can ill afford to spend much time basking in the glow of one of the most memorable wins of the past decade though. Not only are the 6-2 Vikings coming to town on Sunday, but the Redskins must also face the 6-2 NFC South leading Saints ...

    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 8 vs. Dallas


    Keep your friends close. And your enemies closer.

    It can’t be denied – 6 games into the 2017 season for our beloved Burgundy and Gold, and their backs are against the wall already. This 2017 Redskins squad has shown toughness, a greater commitment to the run game, and a vastly improved defense. But the loss of Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon has proven more impactful than this author predicted, and that combined with ...

    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 6 vs. San Francisco 49ers



    San Fran. Frisco. The Golden City. Baghdad by the Bay. The Paris of the West. Call San Francisco whatever you want, but with their 49ers winless so far in 2017, there’s not a lot of hope in Mudville these days.

    While not optimistic about the ‘now’, some 49ers fans have hope for the future…

    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 4 at Kansas City


    Keep your friends close. And your enemies closer.

    Most Chiefs fans like their chances against our Skins this week, and why shouldn’t they? The Chiefs started out the 2017 NFL campaign by delivering a shocking thumping of the reigning Super Bowl Champion Patriots 42-27 in Foxboro. By all appearances, new Offensive Coordinator Matt Nagy really has the Chiefs offense humming. The Chiefs have followed up that impressive ...

    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 3 vs. Las Vegas Rayduhs

    Las Vegas Rayduhs fans are a pretty confident, cocksure bunch. It’s understandable given their recent history and success. The Rayduhs are coming off a 12-4 2016 campaign, and despite last year’s 14-27 Wildcard loss to the Texans, their fans are confident their team is enroute to dominance. Much of that confidence stems from their belief in head coach Jack Del Rio, entering his 3rd season at the helm. Del Rio’s first season was certainly an improvement over the previous 3 win campaign that ...

    Redskins Recon 2017: Week 2 at L.A Rams



    Boone here, reclaiming my ‘Redskins Recons’ blog 

    Visiting several geographically-confused, emotionally-battered Rams fan boards, one could not get a more mixed grab bag of elation, ridiculous optimism, wariness, fear, and cynical skepticism. Many Rams fans are a mirror image of our Burgundy and Gold brethren. While the Rams season opening win with new head coach Sean McVay has them going undefeated ...

    The Giants Part 2: In With A Win...Practically...

    The Giants are in the playoffs, the Redskins could be too. Giants fans are filled with questions and opinions.

    Try to keep the Skins out of the playoffs and risk an injury to a starter?

    Rest up for the playoffs, let the Skins win and go into the playoffs with a 2 game losing streak to division rivals?

    And what about playoff momentum?

    Giants fans have lots on their minds.

    Da Bears: Success or Stumble?

    Now on to Soldier Field and a meetup with the Bears-one of two must wins if the Redskins are going to get into the playoffs.

    So, what do the Bears fans think? Opinions are split over the likely outcome of the game-despite the disparate won/loss records.

    Cutty makes me Drink

    Matt Barkley keeps using Alshon, Barkley also out preforms Cousins to the tune of 305 yards, 3 touchdons and 1 int, J How runs for another 100 and a tuddy.

    The Panthers: Fans of few words.

    My apologies for this Recon being late but the subtitle says it all.

    Panthers fans had-and still have-very little by way of commentary about MNF with the Redskins.

    Weird...and frustrating.

    Anyway, here's what I was able to scrounge up.

    I feel sure we're the better team; no, I know we're the better team but I think we find a way to lose this one. Shula will get conservative in the 4th and DeSean Jackson will blow by Worley

    The Eagles:Second Time Around

    OK, it's the Eagles again-and between the two teams the Redskins have been having the better time of it. Eagles fans know it and it shows in their comments.


    And there are very few of those.


    Very few give Philly much of a chance in this game-no matter what Vegas oddsmakers are saying right at the moment.
