  1. Blognostications 2017 - Week 8 - Cowboys @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - Burgundy Burner

    As many of you know, I was not too kind to the Redskins in the BBQ seasonal predictions. The prognostication called for a 2-14 record, but that win total prediction was bested after the San Francisco game. Perhaps that was a bit too rough, but I looked at a brutal schedule in the middle of the season and now that particular time is here. The Redskins had the injury bug surface in recent weeks and was exacerbated on Monday night against the Eagles. ...
  2. Blognostications: Week 7 Redskins at Eagles Edition

    Blognosticator: Boone

    I know what you’re going to say.

    Is that YOU Boone?

    Yes – it’s me, and I can’t predict a big Redskins win on Monday night. I just can’t.

    Now, it’s an ‘any given Sunday’ kind of a league, and our 2017 Burgundy and Gold are no shrinking violets. We’re good enough to compete with and even beat any team in the ...

    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…

  4. 2017 Week 6 - 49ers @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - the One and Only Ax

    A Must Win! ........................That’s right boys and girls, this Sunday’s game at Fedex, against the F’ers, is a must win. I don’t want to hear about how many more games there are. This is a must win for our boys. Let me explain.

    Remaining 1 game behind the Eagles, 1 game ahead of the Cowboys, and 3 games ahead of the Giants, makes it a must win

    Being the first game back after the bye, the first game of ...

    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 ...

  7. 2017 Week 3 - Raiders @ Redskins

    Blognosticator - DixieFlatline

    The Autumn Wind is a pirate
    Blustering in from sea,
    With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
    Swaggering boisterously.
    His face is weather beaten.
    He wears a hooded sash,
    With a silver hat about his head,
    And a bristling black mustache.

    He growls as he storms the country,
    A villain big and bold.
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake,
    As he robs them of their gold. ...

    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 ...
  10. 2017 Week 2 - Redskins @ Rams

    Blognosticator - Neophyte



    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 ...
