Welcome to Flashback Friday, where we take a trip down memory lane to revisit yesteryear moments in Washington football history. From jaw-dropping plays to nail-biting finishes, Washington football has provided its fans with countless memories throughout the years. Today, we turn our attention way to October 27, 2014, when the Washington Redskins took on their most hated rivals, the Dallas Cowboys. As we dive into the archives, let’s try relive the events that unfolded on that historic day.Read More
The Washington Commanders are gearing up for the 2023 NFL season, and fans are already buzzing with anticipation. Sure some of of the buzz is wether or not Dan Snyder will have sold the team by then, but hey buzz is buzz.
The 2023 NFL Draft is in the books – the Commanders have made their selections – and that means that the next event to look forward to in the off-season is the release of the 2023 schedule. It will be released some time in May. Exactly when, is more top secret than how they get the caramel in the Caramilk bar.
The Commanders DO already know who their opponents will be – it’s just a question of when they will meet each opponent.Read More
With nothing to play for but pride, the Washington Commanders handed the Dallas Cowboys their proverbial behinds in the final game of the 2022 regular season. Washington outclassed the Cowboys 26-6 largely on the strength of a colossal effort from their defense.
In what may very well have been the very last time that the Commanders took the field with Dan Snyder as owner, there wasn’t much to play for. Perhaps that’s fitting given the tumultuous times of the past two decades-plus under Snyder’s thumb. Washington were eliminated from Wild Card contention in Week 17, and no result from them in Week 18 was going to change that.
Given that, the Commanders chose to sit some regulars in lieu of evaluating some talent that had seen little or no playing time this season. That included getting quarterback Sam Howell his first start.Read More
There’s a good chance if you’re poking around the world of the Washington Commanders online this week – you will likely find some common verbage.
“Nothing to play for.”
“Play the young talent.”
“No playoffs again!”
What there hasn’t been much of, is the thing that might be the most exciting of all.
A seemingly overlooked thing that might make this meaningless game, the most meaningful game in 20-plus years.
There’s a chance that it could be the last game ever with Dan Snyder as the owner.Read More
The Washington Commanders were demoralized on Sunday. They had their first division match-up of the 2022 season and failed miserably in their 24-8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Washington will face another division match-up this weekend when they face the Dallas Cowboys.
Two teams on different trajectories. The Cowboys were expected to fall apart when they lost quarterback Dak Prescott, but have put together back-to-back wins with Cooper Rush at the helm. Dallas knocked off the previously undefeated New York Giants 23-16 in the Monday Night game.
The Commanders started the season on a winning note, but have since dropped their last two. And failed to score a single point in the first half of both games.
So how is this week’s upcoming NFC East match-up, shaping up?Read More
The phrase, “it was over by half-time” gets over-used a lot. However, the phrase was never more appropriate than in the Washington Football Team’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Washington were getting crushed 42-7 by half time, en route to a 56-14 drubbing on Prime Time television.
The loss moved Washington to 6-8 and out of the playoff running. That’s appropriate given their level of play the last few weeks.Read More
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merrrrrrrrrry Christmas everybody.
To all those who celebrate Christmas, have a heckuva fantastic day.
May you get a Chase Young authentic jersey, an authentic helmet, two WFT snap back hats, and every wall hanging you could find with a “W” on it.Read More
While the Washington Football Team rallied late to make a game of it, they were beaten fairly soundly by the Dallas Cowboys for most of their 27-20 loss on Sunday. Dallas rode a strong 18-point first quarter lead for most of the game. The win moved Dallas into a commanding lead in the NFC East at 9-4, while the WFT fell to 6-7 and in a tie with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Despite an absolute donut in the first half, and being down 24-0, Washington still had a chance to win the game at the end. The Football Team posted 12 fourth quarter points to get the score back to 27-20, and within a score. They even had a drive to potentially tie the game at 27-27 with just over three minutes to go.Read More
The Washington Football Team head in to their Week 14 match-up with the Dallas Cowboys on a roll. The WFT have won their last four games, including last week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Despite that good run, Washington (6-6) will need to take down the division rival Cowboys (8-4) – the current division leaders – if they want to keep pace.
This is a huge game for both teams.Read More
