I think you all know how this works. We make predictions, you make predictions, and the reader who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
Matt Terl: Dolphins, 17-10
When you find yourself thinking things like “But maybe Tashard Choice can be a difference maker!”, it’s probably best to just pick the other team.
JP Finlay: Dolphins, 20-9
I am done picking the Skins as long as John Beck plays quarterback. He sucks. Defense keeps the score low again but when the offense can’t move the ball none of it really matters.
Chris Mottram: Dolphins, 24-13
Pretty neat that the Dolphins have a better starting QB with Matt Moore than the Skins do. Even at 1-7, Miami is a better team.
Andy Peden: Dolphins, 23-16
I will thankfully miss the game. Normally I would say I will avoid all TVs and the Internet plus ask my friends not to text or call during the game so I can watch on delay. In this case, please let me know so I don’t waste time watching on delay and I...

The inescapable storyline of this week’s game is that John Beck is returning to face the Dolphins, a team that once thought he was their quarterback of the future. Now with his third team, Beck is looking for his first win as a pro, in the city where it all began four years ago.
“That was my first year in the NFL and you don’t really know what to...
Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck on Sunday faces the team that drafted him out of BYU back in 2007, made him a starter with four games left in his rookie season and then basically gave up on him the following year.
Beck said he doesn’t really have any fond memories of his time with the Miami Dolphins, with whom he spent 2008 as a backup before the team cut him the following...
As the Washington Redskins begin the second half of the season, Kyle Shanahan’s unit very much remains a work in progress, and the offensive coordinator admittedly still is experimenting with how to best tailor the system to the strengths of quarterback John Beck.
Although the offense has managed only a total of 31 points in the three games that Beck has started, Shanahan described...
Mike Shanahan isn't backing down when he says he's stakes his reputation on Washington Redskins quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck.
Shanahan made that statement after the first training camp practice in July.
So far, the two have yet to justify the coach's faith. Grossman was benched after committing 11 turnovers in five starts, and Beck is 0-3 since taking over...
Once one in a long line of quarterbacks meant to fill the void, John Beck was cast aside by the Dolphins, and is looking for his first win this week against them.
John Beck may be on a short leash for his return to Miami this Sunday. Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Rex Grossman split first-team snaps with Beck during practice this week. That’s a strong sign that Beck could be removed from Sunday’s game if things don’t turn around. Beck is 0-3 at…
1. Is this the game it clicks for John Beck? He steadily regressed from his relief appearance against Philadelphia to the 10-sack Buffalo game, but he was better last week. Coaches believe experience will help him better find open receivers and throw on time. 2. Are the Redskins able to ...
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan faced questions following Washington's 20-9 loss to Miami on Sunday — the first time Shanahan has lost five straight games in his career — about his decision to start Rex Grossman over John Beck at quarterback. The following is Shanahan's session with the media on that subject:

In the 1969 Harry Nilson hit “One,” we learn that one is indeed the loneliest number, but two can be as bad as one. Today, I’m not sure which is worse, but there are only two notable prognosticators calling for the Redskins to win.
Both Shannon Sharpe and Bill Cowher of CBS selected the Redskins as their surprise upset pick:
CBSSports Pete Prisco calls the Dolpins...
The clock is ticking! Just about seven or so hours left between us and Jets-Patriots!
In this thread, feel free to talk about the 1PM & 4PM games you’re checking in on. Will the Bills hit the wall in Dallas? Can the Falcons leap-frog the Saints this weekend? Will the Bengals / Steelers matchup be the game of the day? How long has it been since a November Chicago Detroit...
The Redskins employed a bit of trickery in their pregame lineups, waiting until the last minute before announcing that Rex Grossman would start at quarterback in place of John Beck, and linebacker Perry Riley would start in place of Rocky McIntosh.
Both surprise starters had a shaky start on their respective first drives, with Grossman going three-and-out with a sack, and...
1-Another week, another embarrassment for the skins. Both sides of the team failed against the Dolphins, but the switch to Grossman(literally at the last minute) just reinforced that neither Beck or Grossman is the answer. On top of this, the offense failed to move the ball and abandoned the run far too early which forced the team to rely on the talents of the Sex Dragon. Miami is...
