      The Redskins made an unexpected play for a young QB yesterday, but not via the NFL draft as expected – instead, swapping 2018 6th round picks with the Cleveland Browns to acquire 3rd year former Stanford standout Kevin Hogan.

      Skins fans either cheering or booing the move, in truth, couldn’t pick Hogan out of a lineup with a gun held to their head.

      So what to make of young Mr. Hogan?

      Cut by the Kansas City Chiefs who used a 5th rounder ...

      Keep your friends close. And your enemies closer.

      It can’t be denied – 6 games into the 2017 season for our beloved Burgundy and Gold, and their backs are against the wall already. This 2017 Redskins squad has shown toughness, a greater commitment to the run game, and a vastly improved defense. But the loss of Desean Jackson and Pierre Garcon has proven more impactful than this author predicted, and that combined with underwhelming performances by Jordan Reed, Jamison ...

      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 ...

      The Giants are in the playoffs, the Redskins could be too. Giants fans are filled with questions and opinions.

      Try to keep the Skins out of the playoffs and risk an injury to a starter?

      Rest up for the playoffs, let the Skins win and go into the playoffs with a 2 game losing streak to division rivals?

      And what about playoff momentum?

      Giants fans have lots on their minds.

      Now on to Soldier Field and a meetup with the Bears-one of two must wins if the Redskins are going to get into the playoffs.

      So, what do the Bears fans think? Opinions are split over the likely outcome of the game-despite the disparate won/loss records.

      Cutty makes me Drink

      Matt Barkley keeps using Alshon, Barkley also out preforms Cousins to the tune of 305 yards, 3 touchdons and 1 int, J How runs for another 100 and a tuddy.

      My apologies for this Recon being late but the subtitle says it all.

      Panthers fans had-and still have-very little by way of commentary about MNF with the Redskins.

      Weird...and frustrating.

      Anyway, here's what I was able to scrounge up.


      I feel sure we're the better team; no, I know we're the better team but I think we find a way to lose this one. Shula will get conservative in the 4th and DeSean Jackson

      OK, it's the Eagles again-and between the two teams the Redskins have been having the better time of it. Eagles fans know it and it shows in their comments.

      And there are very few of those.

      Very few give Philly much of a chance in this game-no matter what Vegas oddsmakers are saying right at the moment.


      We should spoil the Foreskins season next week
      Not sure if Pedo will have them ready? No reason this team

      Wow. This is a big game and the Cowboys fans wasted no time in posting comments about it.

      The Cowboys are running hot and so are the Redskins and most Cowboys fans know it. I have not seen this much respect for the Redskins from 'boys fans the whole time I have been doing Redskins Recon.

      In spite of the success they have had so far this season many Dallas fans are scared about this game-primarily due to Kirk Cousins and our receiver corps.

      Boy are Packers fans in a bad place! Crappy record-for them-just got blown out by the Titans, ARod's seriously off his feed, their D has been less than hoped for, injuries galore and the fans are shell-shocked.

      Fire McCarthy! Fire Capers! Fire TT! Fire somebody! posts are all over the place. Whew!

      They're not even sure they'll win against the Skins either. Some think maybe yes, some think we'll be the "turnaround game"-others expect ...

      Man, starting the season hot as a firecracker at 5-0 and then losing 3 games in a row to teams you really shouldn't have lost to can really mess with your head.

      This is the state of Minnesota Viking fandom. Shell-shocked, angry disappointed but to an extent defiantly optimistic among some and despairing among others.

      And, of course, not at all sure they can beat the Redskins Sunday.

      And they are now operating ...
