  1. Grading BBQ’s 2015 Season Predictions

    The 2015 season is over, but now it is time to look at how BBQ fared with the predictions for each game. We are including the lone playoff game. Let’s take a look at how it went.

    September 13 – Dolphins at Redskins
    The Jay Gruden era enters a second season with a lot of hope, but many question marks and a faux pas or two. The Dolphins are not only hoping for a playoff berth, but they are looking to make a possible run at the Super Bowl. The visiting team has too many weapons ...

  2. 2015 Season Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    The 2015 season is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against all of their opponents. The Redskins had a topsy-turvy season, but finished strongly with four straight wins. The result was winning the NFC East, but the team did not advance past the first round of the playoffs. It was an eventful year with plenty of highs and lows. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations for 2015. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, ...

  3. Divisional Playoff Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    The divisional playoff game is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Packers. The Redskins had their brief postseason come to a grinding and abrupt halt. Early in each half there were reasons to be hopeful, but the final result was not as we had expected. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, and opinions. Also, we have some questions to close out the divisional ...

  4. 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 ...

    The Packers: Of course....but maybe...

    In spite of having a 10-6 record, the Green Bay Packers are suffering through a period during which they are simply not playing up to the level people are accustomed to seeing from them-not their fanbase, sports media or casual observers have failed to notice the cripplking effects of major ijuries (Jordy Nelson's loss looks to be huge-along with Sam Shields but Shields just might be ok to play Sunday)), less than the usual hyper-competent levels of execution-even Rodgers looks less than his normal ...

  6. Week Seventeen Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    Week seventeen is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Cowboys. The Redskins continued their winning ways and now they are riding a four game streak. It should be noted that yearly grades and evaluations will be postponed by at least one week as BBQ is in playoff mode. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, and opinions. Also, we have some questions to close ...

  7. 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 ...

    The Cowboys: Picks Or Pride?

    The Redskins are in the playoffs, the Cowboys are at the bottom of the NFCE, and Dallas fans are wondering if they should try to win or go for the highest draft pick possible.






    Bleu Star

    Do not (I repeat) do not go out on Sunday and make any attempts to beat the Skins. The ability to trade down for value from a top 3 pick is so much more appealing than #7 or 8... We should be resting anyone of value that does not require further

  9. Week Sixteen Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    Week sixteen is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Eagles. The Redskins are riding high after a blowout win for the division title. While high fives and kudos are easy to give out for this achievement, we still need to reflect on certain aspects of the game and render a weekly judgment. So now it is time to make some sense of it all as BBQ hands out grades and evaluations. Feel free to offer your own grades, evaluations, and opinions. Also, we have ...

    My off-beat look at the trials, tribulations, and triumphs
    inherent in the world of a lifelong Redskins fan.


    Whistling Past the Graveyard

    I’ve noted a strange adaptive strategy employed by war-torn and battle-scarred Redskins fans for most of the past 20 years. ‘Whistling Past the Graveyard’. Belief is a risky proposition for NFL fans, particularly fans of one of the most volatile, topsy-turvy franchises ever, one that’s had a parade of head coaches, coordinators, front office staff, and supposed saviors that rivals Kevin Bacon connections.

    With belief comes possibility. Occasionally, fans who’ve closed their eyes, ...
