      With the playoffs well under way, and our lack of involvement in them, I thought I would try out something new: a short (puff piece) biopic of some of my favorite 'Skins from past years. This initial post describes one of my all time favorite players from the glory days, aka the Gibbs 1.0 dynasty. Alvin Walton was an undersized but FIERCE hitter back when DB's were allowed to crush receivers over the deep middle. In fact, as a young(er) man I remember ...

      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions, 2018

      Greetings from BBQ. The new year is churning along and the head coach of the Redskins seems a bit frustrated and fans tend to agree. Free agency, the draft, and training camp will be here before you know it. This is our second free agency update for the 2018 offseason. It’s very early in this process and we really don’t know how all of it will unfold. As we get closer to ...

      Burner’s Burning Questions: Free Agency, Mock Drafts, Camps, Roster Predictions, 2018

      Greetings from BBQ to everyone in BGO land.

      Today we bring you the second round of mocks of the 2018 offseason. We’ve already signed one of our restricted free agents (Quinton Dunbar) to a three year contract, but today’s focus is squarely on college prospects. We have two mocks for you today and that will be a weekly feature at BBQ for the next few weeks. One ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On injuries:
      “[Chris] Carter is going to need surgery for his fractured fibula. [Byron] Marshall has a hamstring [injury] and that will be day-to-day – we’ll see the severity of it here pretty soon. Zach Brown is going to get an MRI on his foot. [Ryan] Grant’s got an ankle [injury] – he’ll be day-to-day. [Samaje] Perine was out with an illness and he should be OK.”

      On processing what happened yesterday:
      “It’s a tough pill to swallow, but we have to swallow it and we have to move on to Arizona, try to put our best foot forward and give these guys something to sink their teeth into from a preparation standpoint. Make sure we get the guys available and get those guys ready to play who are available, and play them and get them ready to play. From a coaching standpoint, we’ve got to do ...

      Blognosticator - Burgundy Burner

      Hello once again. I am back to do another blognostication. A reminder from that first blognostication: “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 ...

      Head Coach Jay Gruden

      On if there’s hope for TE Jordan Reed to return:
      “There’s always hope [laughter]… I’ll leave that to the trainers and Jordan. We’ll see how he does.”

      On holding a brief practice today:
      “Yeah, we had a couple days off there. It was just good to get them some individual work, get them back on the field, compete a little bit – two-minute, red zone, third down – some areas that we’ve had some trouble in, and it was a good day.”

      On if there are any plans to shut down injured players:
      “No, we don’t have any plans to shut anybody down unless it is a season-ending injury, and that’s something the trainers ...

      I love Brian Mitchell's post-game comments (TIRADE) about the outcome of the Dallas game and the Redskins demeanor as a team.

      Regarding special teams, he raised the obvious question of why a unit that has struggled on returns and coverage for years and has had some key FG misses on makeable tries in crunch time, continues to employ a coach in Ben Kotwica that has VERY LITTLE NFL experience, at least of the winning variety.

      He was what special teams coach in NY with ...

      Last night’s no show on national TV against a hated rival was a particularly rough one to watch.

      The seas were angry last night my friends. The waves were 50 feet high, our little boat showed it was full of holes, not up to the beating of the harsh and unforgiving waters. And in the end, even George Clooney died.

      Contrary to popular belief, the current Redskins almost never go out and flat out suck or lay an egg. They fight, they compete, and more often than not are usually within striking distance with the game on the line. The team of the past 3 years has not been highly prone to turnovers and (if we're being fair) has rarely failed to show up at all, or gifted opponents a certain win. They have not.

      Last night - they did all of those things. ...
