The more I see from the Washington Capitals organization, the more I believe that every sports franchise should send its top dogs to Ted Leonsis to learn his ways. Here is the new video that fans at the Verizon Center get to see before each game. If you don’t see a self-fulfilling prophesy there, you’re […]

Oh no… The Philadelphia Eagles have reached agreement on a blockbuster intra-division trade that will send perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins, according to multiple sources close to the situation. The two sides still must finalize language, but McNabb is now headed to Washington. Sources said the deal involved the Redskins’ […]

Well, it’s about darned time. The Saints’ victory over the Vikings in the NFC Championship game means there’s an opening at linebacker in the Pro Bowl, with Jonathan Vilma playing in the Super Bowl. And that means that London Fletcher, elected to the team as an alternate, will replace Vilma in the game next Sunday […]

American culture scores another convert! What was more, though, ESPNAmerica also spends a whole lot of time to American Football. I had seen Football games in the past, and liked them, but never had the opportunity to watch it regularly. Now I did. It only took me three weeks or so to become positively addicted. […]

To paraphrase Michelle Obama, for the first time this season, I am proud of my football team. The Broncos came into Washington needing a win very badly and got a face full of old-school Redskins football. The team was hardly perfect, especially the secondary in the first half, but the team made the adjustments it […]

Those of you who aren’t football fans probably wonder why, about this time every year, a goodly number of your friends act like raving lunatics for no apparent good reason. I’m here to help explain that. See, NFL training camp started last week, which means that your football-loving friends are getting their first long look […]

Yes, Redskins fans, we do have the bone-stupidest General Manager in all of football, and I’m including the CFL, NFL Europe, and the now-defunct Arena League. Here’s how he explained why he didn’t draft any defensive linemen – a definite need for his team – in the last draft. You know, so you’ve gotta go […]

It’s not every day I agree with Michael Wilbon, but today is one of those days. Wilbon says that we shouldn’t be looking at Jason Campbell or Jim Zorn or Clinton Portis. We should be looking at the offensive and defensive lines. Actually, I don’t even think the defensive line is such a huge problem. […]

Well, folks, that’s it for me until after the election. I’m tuning in to My Beloved Redskins who I’m hoping will give me warm fuzzy dreams of victory on which to sleep tonight. Tomorrow, I’m up at somewhere around 5 AM to spend the day working as a Provisional Judge at one of my local […]

Okay, so maybe we don’t get out the Bandwagon quite yet. But even though My Beloved Redskins dropped a game to the St. Louis Rams they should have won, I still think the team is in really good shape and has been improving in very important ways. The stats tell the tale. They had more […]
