Redskins-Cowboys Is A Really, Really, Really Expensive Ticket

Sunday night’s Redskins-Cowboys game (AKA The NFC East Championship) is not only this week’s most expensive NFL ticket, it’s the most expensive regular season NFL ticket in four years. That’s according to our ticket partner TiqIQ, at least, which says the No. 2 game is Cowboys at Saints in 2009 and No. 3 is Steelers at Cowboys earlier this year. Tickets are averaging $719, and you...

Redskins-Eagles Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 27-20 win at Philly. Winners Robert Griffin III — The mobility wasn’t there, and I could’ve sworn he had just an okay game throwing the ball, but he ended up with a 102.2 rating, so what do I know. Ryan Kerrigan — His strip-sack early on shifted momentum big time. Picked up another sack later. Now has a career-high 8.5. Kai Forbath...

Chris Cooley, Blocking Tight End?

Just noticed this for reasons unknown: Chris Cooley hasn’t caught a pass since returning to the Redskins two months ago. Here’s the breakdown (snap counts via Pro Football Focus via CSN Washington): – 7 games – 79 snaps – 2 targets – 0 catches That’s kind of odd for the most prolific pass-catching tight end in franchise history, no? Meanwhile, Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul aren’t...

Danny Espinosa’s Winter Beard Is Thick (PHOTO)

Danny Espinosa has always appeared to be able to grow a beard on a day’s notice. This is what happens when you give him two months (via CSN D.C.): He should be full Brian Wilson by the time pitchers and catchers report. In other Nats/ex-Nats news, the Cubs are giving Edwin Jackson 20 times what the Phillies gave John Lannan. Good for that MFer.

Skins’ Playoff Odds And Scenarios Are Way Too Promising

You’ve done it, Redskins. You’ve officially got our hopes up. This is no longer “oh, wouldn’t it be cute if they made the playoffs?” We’ve reached the point where missing the playoffs would be a massive disappointment. We’ve reached the point were we expect this team to be playing in January. This is a very dangerous place to be, friends. We’re all doomed. To the odds! Football...

This Is One Of The Best Redskins Offenses Of All Time For Real

The 2012 Redskins have already scored more points than any Redskins team in 13 years, which is not something I was expecting to write about the 2012 Redskins. And if you chalk that 1999 season up as some sort of strange Norv Turner fever dream, then the Redskins haven’t scored like this since ‘91, a season which prompted me to buy a Zubaz-billed Super Bowl hat. These Skins are on...

Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 38-21 win at Cleveland. Winners The Redskins — Normally I don’t label THE ENTIRE FRANCHISE like this, but what a win: puts them atop the NFC East (after 3-6!), establishes Cousins as a top backup/prime tradebait, gives RGIII time to heal and on and on.

Redskins-Browns Open Thread

If the Skins win they have about a two-out-of-three chance of making the playoffs for the first time in five years. If not, it’s about a one-out-of-three chance.* It’s also Kirk Cousins’ first NFL start. No pressure, no diamonds.
