    The 29 Percenters

    The one thing that kept Snyder tolerable was that he refused to change the team name. Now I could care less who owns the team, because it's not the team I grew up rooting for. It's not the team that values the traditions of the past. It's a team that now wears a W in the same friggin' font that...

    Updates and An Early Look at the Redskins 2019 Draft

    Quick Writer's Note: Apologies for the lack of post for the past two weeks. A combination of hectic work schedule, some life issues and some technical issues made me take a brief hiatus. My goal is to try and do two posts a week during the season. That said I plan to do a bunch of my BYE week...

    Previews and Predictions: Washington Redskins at New Orleans Saints

    Most Redskins fans were expecting/hoping for a 2-1 record when the week four BYE came and they got their wish, but not exactly the way they wanted it. The Redskins lost at home to an average/mediocre Colts team yet beat a weakened but still extremely dangerous Packers team in week three. So...

    Your 2019 Draft Class As of 3/10/19

    Three weeks ago the NFL released its list of 32 Compensatory Picks to be dealt out during the 2019 draft. The Redskins were awarded a total of 4 compensatory picks (the max allowed per team per year) which was one more than was expected from Over The Cap's Compensatory Pick Projection. So, today...

    Meaningless Mock Draft 1.0

    So, here's my official 1st Mock of the year. I've done a bunch of simulations so far on both Fanspeak and The Draft Network but this will be my official 1st mock of the 2019 draft season for Same As It Ever Was and BGObsession. I'm basing today's mock off a conversation I had with some Redskins...

    Today Redskins Nation had some good news and it came from the NFL (which is an extremely rare event). The NFL announced that ILB Ruben Foster will not be suspended for multiple off field incidents that occurred last year and resulted in Foster being cut by the 49ers and winding up on the...

    Thoughts On Dwayne Haskins Topics

    Getting ready to start working on my draft write ups, but 1st here's some quick thoughts on Dwayne Haskins. As you know, DC loves QB drama and we've already had some stories about our new QB that is drawing debate or commentary from the fans and even some in the media. So, here's what I think...

    Previews and Predictions: Indianapolis Colts vs. Washington Redskins

    After starting the season on the road, the Redskins come home to face the Colts. It won't be easy as Andrew Luck has returned and will be a significant challenge to a young and inexperienced secondary and a defensive line who will now have to deal with a much more mobile and accurate quarterback...

    Final Thoughts on the Redskins Victory over the Cardinals

    I grew up watching the Joe Gibbs 1.0 Redskins. So my philosophy on how to win at football has been quite simple. Win in the trenches. That means that you win with your big offensive and defensive linemen. Of course, in the modern NFL, it helps that these big guys are also athletic. What I...

    Players to Watch on Thursday

    Preseason is almost over and the final 53 man roster for the Redskins is almost set. But there are still questions about who should be on the roster and why. Today I'm going to look at how many open spots are left for players fighting to get on the final 53 and some players to watch who may be...

    Previews and Predictions: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals

    This is my first attempt at giving a preview of an upcoming game. So the Redskins start the season on the road vs. the Cardinals. This is the type of game that as a Redskins fan you actually want to see. While the team is on the road, they are facing a team that fully admits that they are in a...

    The 53 Man Roster Prediction Thread 2.0

    1.0 is here. Also for comparison, Rich Tandler's 2.0 Roster Thread. I'm linking Rich's thread here for a few reasons. First, it's near identical to my picks. Second, Rich posted his before I did mine. Yes, I did look at his out of curiosity and I also take his commentary along with Finlay and...

    F***!!!!!!! ..........And The Silver Lining

    I finished the Redskins @ Patriots game with a generally good feeling. The Redskins dominated the 1st half of the game and led 17-3 to the AFC Champion Patriots. Now I know what you're thinking: "But Ghost, it's just a preseason game with mostly backups starting.....so who cares." Well, think...
