Redskins-Packers Predictions

As ever, these are our crackerjack staff’s predictions for the Wild Card game. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest gets to make a guest post on this here weblog. JP Finlay: Redskins, 34-20 This seems ridiculous to write, but I think the Skins roll. Rodgers has been sacked 14 times his last two games. Preston Smith and Ryan Kerrigan have five sacks just between...

The Redskins Are Playing With Found Money

Guest writer and longtime Skins fan Kevin Stroop stops by to give thanks before Sunday’s Redskins-Packers playoff game at FedEx Field. This has to be one of the most unexpected division titles in Redskins history. As a fan, I am still in shock. So how does this year feel different than the 2012 division title? Well, simply put, there were no expectations on this team this year...

Have You Ever Looked At Jay Schroeder’s Pro Football Reference Page?

Kirk Cousins’ amazing 2015 regular season, capped off by a fantastic Week 17 performance, brought something obvious into focus: Washington hasn’t enjoyed excellent quarterbacking during the modern, pass-heavy era. Cousins broke a franchise record with 4,166 passing yards, you see. That’s only good for 10th in the NFL this season, but it’s more than any Washington passer ever...

Redskins-Cowboys Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 34-23 win at Dallas. Winners Kirk Cousins — Threw three TDs in the first quarter to cap off a dream season, breaking Jay Schroeder’s 29-year-old single-season passing record in the process. Colt McCoy — Relieved Cousins for his first action in 2015, showed that he’s still a quality backup. Alfred Morris — First 100...

Redskins-Eagles Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 38-24 division-clinching win at Philly. Winners Kirk Cousins — Second straight 300-yard game with four TDs and zero INTs. And it was all on him, too. He threw it 46 times, and they only had 57 yards rushing. The only time his QB rating has dipped below 100 in the past nine games was vs. New England and Carolina. That’s...

The Redskins Goals Have Changed

Here with a guest post for nailing his Skins-Bills prediction is Sportz Assassin, who we go back with on these streets to about 2004. It’s a thrill to publish his stuff. Merry holidays, everyone.

Redskins-Bears Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 24-21 win at Chicago that I only watched about half of. Winners Kirk Cousins — The Skins won on the road, and Cousins posted a decent game away from home too! The 104 rating and 300 yards are nice, but he threw two of the worst passes you’re ever going to see, one of which was picked and one of which was a miracle. He still...

Redskins-Giants Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 20-14 win over NY. Winners Kirk Cousins — On the first drive, Cousins floated an out to the left sideline. Watching live, it appeared the Giants CB cut on the ball and caught it going the other way for an easy pick-six. In that moment, things had gone to pot right away, just like the last Giants game. As it turned out, though...

The Redskins Don’t Seem Like Playoff Longshots

According to the fanciest of fancy stats web sites, FiveThirtyEight, here’s how the NFC East playoff chances look entering Week 11: *Giants 46% *Eagles 44% *Redskins 17% *Dallas 3% How are the 4-5 Redskins closer to the 2-7 Cowboys than the 4-5 Eagles or 5-5 Giants? The Giants and Eagles do have more net points (20 and 28, respectively) than the Redskins (-4), but that’s hardly...

Redskins-Saints Winners & Losers

Washington had eight plays of 20 yards or more, matching their total from the first eight games of the season. The second half wasn’t bad either. Biggest win of Gruden’s 25-game career? Maybe, and it...

Bill Belichick — An onside kick, up 7-0 in the first quarter when you’re a 14-point favorite? What a spectacular asshole. (And it worked.)

The Redskins’ Remaining Schedule

The Washington Football Team has somewhat surprisingly started the season 3-4, and they’ve stuck with just one quarterback in the process. This is relative success. The way the rest of the season is lining up — seven of the nine games are against .500-or-worse teams — may even lead to actual success. Of course, believing that only sets us up for failure. (If I was a betting...

The Posse, Reunited

What the Posse looked like 25 years ago, on my bedroom wall: And here they are today, per Ricky Sanders’ Facebook page: Good to see Gary Clark still wears his sunglasses inside. (Go Dukes!) Pretty sure modern-day Monk, Clark and Sanders could give Ryan Grant and Andre Roberts a run for their money. They look fit.

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 31-30 win over Tampa Bay. Winners Kirk Cousins — The Redskins didn’t get a first down for most of the first half, and he turned a front-side sack into a fumble-six to go down 24-0.
