  1. 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.

    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

  3. 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 ...

    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, ...

    The Eagles: Not Flying So High

    I have not in the entire time I have been doing Redskins Recon ever seen the Eagles' fans like this.

    They are depressed, despondent, not very fond of Chip Kelly right at the moment and, most unusual of all, not at all confident about winning the game against the Skins this weekend.

    It's weird. There is a level of respect from a normally dismissive, contemptuous, degrading fanbase that I'm not used to seeing.

    Oh, there's the normal posting of cute hater ...

  6. Week Fifteen Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    Week fifteen is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Bills. It’s late December and these Washington Redskins are in a position to win the division. Let that sink in for a moment. It’s a nice thing to reflect upon. 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 week fifteen.

  7. 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 ...

    The Bills: "Keep Hope Alive" on life support?

    Whew, the Buffalo Bills fanbase has to be the most depessed I have run across this season. Positive comments are hard to find anywhere.

    If you remember the "Doom, Despair, Agony on me" song from Hee-Haw you have captured the essense of what I found pretty much throughout Bills fan boards.

    Seriously. Rough.

    Fire Rex Ryan is a common theme, as is remembering that the Bills haven't had a playoff appearance in 16 years.

    This is ...

  9. 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.

  10. Week Fourteen Grades, Evaluations, Questions

    Week fourteen is in the books and now we take a look at how the entire team fared against the Bears. The Redskins were finally able to capture a road win and maintain first place with a tie breaker. It was a squeaker, but it was an important victory. 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 week fourteen.
