  1. 2017 Week 2 - Redskins @ Rams

    Blognosticator - Neophyte

    0-4

    102-49

    Those are Jay Gruden’s numbers on opening day as HC of our beloved Redskins. Four losses, outscored better than 2 to 1 over the last 4 years. I don't have to tell you those are not great numbers.

    I’ll give him a pass on year one when he had to start Griffin even though at that point he likely knew there was no way Robert was ever going to be an NFL caliber drop back pocket passer. We will call it ...

  2. 2017 Week 1 - Eagles at Redskins



    Blognosticator - Shi no Tenshi (2016 Champion)

    It’s been quite the offseason for the Redskins this year. We had the joy of drafting the D line we always wanted in the 1st round of the draft, while losing our top 2 receivers. The GM that was supposed to get us the “football players” we need to dominate was ousted, with the reasons being varied all along the spectrum, from it being a hostile ...

  3. My take on anything and everything Burgundy and Gold
    while living in the heart of the wilderness. I am a fan, nothing more or less.

    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 ...

  4. Embracing a burgundy and gold obsession of 40+ years.
    My off-beat look at the trials, tribulations, and triumphs
    inherent in the world of a lifelong Redskins fan.


    The Calm Down Bus

    Well, after a few days to absorb the reality that we have the Rent-A-Starter plan in full effect at QB, one that could extend even into the 2018 season, I have decided to take a deep breath. Reading takes from less emotional rational types like Bulldog, Om, and Miles Monroe I recognize that this is and likely will continue to be par for the course for our Redskins and that getting ones panties in a wad is of no tangible benefit.

    With any controversy, it is human nature to put ...

    The Quan

    I know, I know. Lifes not fair. You never promised me a rose garden. Suck it up buttercup.

    If anyone gets it, its the son of the Great Santini. Raised by a 64 Marine Colonel, I want was a phrase I quickly learned to deftly avoid.

    But want I do.

    And when it comes to my beloved Burgundy and Gold, the wish list is long and enduring.

    I want Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. Pay the man.
    I want Jay Gruden to become a ...
