Grade B Performance for Rex Grossman in Redskins Win Over Jaguars

[picapp] Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Just yesterday, we begged for a win like a hopeful child. Today the jolly old elf, and the Washington Redskins defense, delivered. The Redskins jumped to an early lead, and then held on to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 20-17. Rex Grossman played part two of his three […]

Washington Plays The Joker In Jacksonville

[picapp] The Washington Redskins stagger through the remainder of their season with everyone on the team but Donovan McNabb auditioning for a spot on next year’s roster. Santa’s sleigh brings them to Jacksonville to face the Jaguars. Santa has a few gifts for Washington, too.  Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew, AKA Pocket Hercules, is listed as […]

Dear Santa,…

Dear Santa, I have been a good fan and an ok blogger all year long. Please may I have a win on Sunday?  And please, please Santa, give me two more years of London Fletcher playing at a high level. _________________________ Where ever you go, whomever you are with, however you celebrate this day, may […]

Odds Are That Donovan McNabb Won’t Be In Washington Next Year

[picapp] Everyone but Donovan McNabb knows that. Leave it to the sports books to give you odds on Donovan’s next moves. If he were a betting man, D-Mac could pick up some easy cash, because he’s going to need it. Being demoted to third-string quarterback will cost McNabb $62,500 in the next two weeks. Of […]

Buck Up, Redskins Fans. God Is On Our Side

[picapp] Well, maybe not God himself. He’s been very busy lately. But the Washington Redskins may have an “in” through one of His deputies on Earth. It turns out that Donald Wuerl, the (Catholic) Cardinal-Archbishop of Washington, is a Redskins fan, according to a story on Geesh! The Cardinal is a ‘Skins fan. The […]

After McNabb, Are the Redskins Looking For The Next Tim Tebow?

[picapp] A discussion thread on the DC Pro Sports Report forum notes that Donovan McNabb wants to stay a Redskin. The comments are decidedly ho-hum on that prospect. The underlying sense is that McNabb is in denial of his situation and that he is already dead meat in Washington. We are all on a learning […]

Redskins vs Cowboys Defensive Reviews: Anthony Bryant Needs an Extension

Not pictured above: DeAngelo Hall. Nothing has changed in terms of first down defense: the Redskins are still a dreadful first down defensive team, when they are primarily a 3-4 team.  All we found out this week is that fixing the nose tackle position doesn’t change the fact that the Redskins can’t stop teams in […]

Redskins vs Cowboys Offensive Review: Grossman’s Turnovers

On Sunday, Tony wrote that Rex Grossman passed his test as Redskins starting quarterback.  I completely agree with him.  I also think that Grossman is incredibly fortunate to be playing under circumstances where winning the game was not a primary objective of how well the quarterback performs.  Grossman made way too many plays that hurt […]

Donovan McNabb’s Worst Nightmare

[picapp] Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys had to be Donovan McNabb’s second worst nightmare in this nightmare season for he and the Washington Redskins. Shown up…by Rex Grossman. Psychologists say that one only remembers dreams if you awake before they end. Nightmares awaken you with an emotional start. Donovan’s nightmare started well enough when […]

Rex Grossman Passes His Test Against Cowboys

[picapp] How did Rex Grossman do starting at quarterback for the Washington Redskins? Surprisingly well. Shockingly well. Astoundingly well. Not that he was perfect. When head coach Mike Shanahan promoted Grossman to starter, Redskins Hog Heaven asked what we must see from Grossman to buy into the idea. Here’s the list along with Grossman’s performance. […]

The Shanahans Have as Much At Stake As Rex Grossman in Dallas Game

[picapp] Rex Grossman is not the only man whose reputation is on the line. Kyle Shanahan has as much at stake as Sexy Rexy. Young Kyle’s judgment as a talent evaluator is on the line for believing that he can get more in his offense from Grossman than Donovan McNabb or Jason Campbell. He is […]

Asked and Answered: Redskins Rex Their Future With Grossman..

[picapp] Wow!. Just wow! The Washington Redskins are no longer in on the Donovan McNabb campaign. Pull all those posters from the Metro buses. Just yesterday, we noted the rumors that Washington Redskins back-up quarterback Rex Grossman might see action at some point of the year. Redskins Hog Heaven even put forth the thought that […]

Should The Redskins Rex Their Future With Grossman?

[picapp] Jay Glazer, Chris Mortensen and other media types are reporting that the Washington Redskins might start back-up quarterback Rex Grossman against the Dallas Cowboys. The team denies it, but it’s the talk of the town. On first blush, you would think that Grossman for Donovan McNabb is a bad idea. Well, hold your horses, […]

Redskins vs Bucs Defensive Review: The Old Guys Come to Play

In the Redskins first game post-Albert Haynesworth, it would have been an absolute travesty if this group had forgotten to show up for a second straight week.  Luckily, if only for this week, the Redskins defense solved these fears that I had, enjoying their best game all season as a run defense unit, and having […]
