Here are the pertinent numbers and statistics from the Washington Redskins 34-19 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday:
304 - Total yards for the Redskins, to the Jets 266 yards. Washington led in many of the offensive statistics, but got clobbered on the one that counts - the score. The Redskins ran 71 offensive plays, and the Jets ran 62; they both averaged
221 - Yards passing for Rex Grossman, on an extremely unimpressive 19 for 46 day. He threw his obligatory interception to stretch his...
BEST OF MAXIM
After 13 weeks on the Washington Redskins’ practice squad, nose tackle Chris Baker finally received the news he had waited for Tuesday, when team officials decided to promote him to the 53-man roster.
“It’s a great opportunity. There’s still a lot of season left,” the 6-foot-2, 329-pound Hampton University product said Wednesday. “I’ve always believed in myself that...
Short on bodies at the tight end position, the Washington Redskins have re-signed Dominique Byrd nearly a month after they waived him.
Byrd, a third-year pro, spent roughly three weeks with the Redskins earlier this season, but never appeared in a game. He was slotted behind Fred Davis, Logan Paulsen and Mike Sellers. The USC product appeared in one game for the Seattle Seahawks...

Isn’t there some moreal about accepting gifts from your opponents on the eve of battle? If there is, it was lost on Redskins receiver Jabar Gaffney, who is proud to be the recipient.
With holiday shopping season underway, Gaffney showed up to team facilities today in his bathroom best, showing off his brand new, personalized Redskins bathrobe.
Nice article by Frenz on Jabar Gaffney. Gaffney’s emergence in the 2006 AFCDG in San Diego was huge. It’s frustrating to imagine what a great 3rd WR he’d be in this offense for the Patriots now. Especially since McDaniels poached him and didn’t even last two seasons. Highly doubt there’s a Pats fan out there that wouldn’t flip Ochocinco for Jab in a second.

Michael Lombardi said this week that the Redskins would be “a great landing spot” for Peyton Manning. Chris Mortensen said this week that the Redskins would be “one obvious team” that could be interested.
And if that wasn’t enough, I just listened to audio of Adam Schefter — the reporter closest to Mike Shanahan — and Vinny Cerrato — who knows Dan Snyder as well...
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has been booed at home a few times this season, and with good reason. But Jets coach Rex Ryan thinks that’s about to change. Ryan said that with the Jets having no margin for error against the Chiefs at home on Sunday, Jets fans will show their support. And he said…
Kansas City @ New York Jets
The Chiefs come off an unlikely win on the road in Chicago; a win they probably wouldn’t have gotten if the Bears weren’t missing their entire offensive talent base due to injury. Tyler Palko didn’t really look any better than he had the previous two weeks, but he didn’t make the same amount of critical errors that submarined his team’s...
Let’s face it. Jabar Gaffney might have been the best No. 3 receiver Tom Brady has had in his arsenal.
Obviously, since his departure in 2009, no one has really stepped in and filled the role adequately, be it Joey Galloway, Brandon Tate, Taylor Price, Chad Ochocinco and so on.
Gaffney caught 85 passes for 1,059 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons from 2006-08.
The Jets offense is getting a little extra help for the stretch run.
Tom Moore, the longtime Colts offensive coordinator who became an offensive consultant to the Jets this season, will stay with the team for the rest of the season instead of heading home to South Carolina and sharing his thoughts in a less immediate fashion.
Moore was in the booth during the Redskins game, giving...
New York Jets linebacker Aaron Maybin joins The WheelHouse to preview Sunday’s match-up against the Kansas City Chiefs.
When thinking about this Sunday's game against the Chiefs, it is hard not to think about it as a microcosm of the entire Rex Ryan era.
On the surface it looks like a game that the Jets should completely dominate to pick up their eighth victory of the season. The Chiefs are playing Tyler Palko at quarterback, Jamaal Charles was lost a long time ago and Kansas City has had a disappointing...
