      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 league on a good night. But this time around, the tarot cards ...

      It took just 6 weeks - but last night we crowned our 4th BGO Survivor Contest winner.

      Congratulations to Kel Varnsen whose pick of the Houston Texans in Week 6 sealed the deal. The Broncos improbable spanking at the hands of the hapless Giants ended the hopes of runner-up DixieFlatline.

      Great job to our new Champion Kel Varnsen and our other top 2 finishers, DixieFlatline and Boone ...

      On his performance:
      “I think we did a good job as an offense. I think we moved the football. There were a lot of good decisions, a lot of good plays made, a lot of third-down conversions in big moments, a lot of crucial drives where we had to churn the clock and come away with points. So, I was proud of the way our offense played today. It wasn’t perfect, there were a couple mistakes, but all in all we did a lot of good things.”

      On his comfort with the read-option and what he likes about the play:
      “It’s always been there because you know – I would credit going back to my rookie year with Robert [Griffin III] here, we did it a lot. It’s always going to be a part of our offense because it does give defenses something to think about. Kyle [Shanahan] told me when he left, he said ‘I’ve learned after working with Robert that this is a really valuable play no matter who the quarterback is and I’ll always carry it with me.’ So, when Jay [Gruden] arrived, we kept it and valued it, and as I started ...

      On injuries:
      “Jonathan Allen has a foot sprain. We’re getting an MRI on it tomorrow. [Bashaud] Breeland has a knee/MCL issue. We’ll get an MRI tomorrow. Could be a sprain, could be whatever. We’ll get an MRI on it tomorrow. [Montae] Nicholson has a shoulder [injury]. [Stefan] McClure has a knee sprain and [Fabian] Moreau has hamstring tightness at the end of the game. That’s it.”

      On if he thought the team let up mid-second quarter:
      “I don’t think so. I think we got up 17-0, they scored at the end of the half, put a nice drive together and then they got the ball coming out in the third quarter. Got to 17-10 and then we had the big turnover and let them ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Out will be Josh Norman, rib; Ty Nsekhe, core muscle. Doubtful is Rob Kelley, ankle; [Deshazor] Everett, hamstring. Questionable will be Trent Williams, knee.”
      On T Trent Williams’ status at practice today:
      “Yeah, he did a little bit today… drank some water [laughing]… Yeah, he didn’t do much today, no. He just did a couple walkthrough reps.”

      On evaluating Williams:
      “I think I’ve seen enough of Trent to know that if he can go, he can go. You know, he’s pretty good. We’ll leave it up to him and the medical team come tomorrow and Sunday morning.”

      On if RB ...

      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…

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Did not participate is the same as yesterday. [Josh] Norman, [Deshazor] Everett, [Rob] Kelley, [Ty] Nsekhe and [Trent] Williams… Zach Brown was back.”

      On LB Zach Brown:
      “He’s fine. He was just sick so he’s in good shape, good spirits. [He] ran around.”

      On if there’s still hope that T Trent Williams will play Sunday:
      “Always going to hold out hope for Trent, yes.”

      On if Williams’ injury has improved at all:
      “I think… I don’t know. A little bit. I hope.”

      On his comfort level with T T.J. Clemmings:
      “Well, you know, the negative is Trent hasn’t been able to practice. The positive, we’re getting T.J. a lot of reps and a lot of work. He hasn’t had a lot of work with Kirk [Cousins] as far as cadence, rhythm of the game, protections, all that stuff. This is new to him, he just got here a few weeks ago so it’s really good to get him schooled with Ty Nsekhe being out also. ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “Did not participate today was Josh Norman, rib; Zach Brown, illness; Ty Nsekhe, his core muscle; Deshazor Everett, hamstring; Rob Kelley, ankle; Trent Williams, knee. Limited was D.J. Swearinger with a hamstring. Full were [Josh] Doctson, [Montae] Nicholson and [Mason] Foster.”
      On T Trent Williams:
      “I think he can possibly play, but we’ll wait and see. He’s a little sore right now but it’s all on how he progresses throughout the week.”
      On what it will take for Williams to play this week:
      “He’s just going to have to get more work tomorrow out there with the trainers, maybe get limited basis in team, and we’ll see where he is Friday and Saturday.”

      On LB Zach Brown’s illness:
      “It’s a lingering bug.”
      On if he expects Brown to play Sunday:
      “I hope so. Hopefully it doesn’t linger that long.”
      On RB Rob Kelley:
      “For Rob, it’s probably a long shot this week. I think he’s going to have to make major strides, which, it’s already Wednesday so it’s not looking great. ...

      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 ...
