Washington Football Team’s Week 9 Bye Week Notes

Washington does not play in the NFL’s Week 9. However, that seemed to only intensify the mountain of off-the-field distractions going on with the organization.

Here are the things that happened that did not involve emails, the NFL, Washington, and Congress. And then some things that did.

Where Do Washington Management Rank In Terms Of Drafting?

NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal just posted his General Manager Power Rankings based on how teams have drafted recently. How did the Washington management group fare in respect to others? It didn’t. The rankings left off the nine teams that have one draft (or less) of experience, so that left Washington’s three-headed approach off the list. Read More

So, this chunk of blue stuff hits me on the head…

Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine.

Ouch… you call that a “get right game?”

Can it possibly be as bad as it seems? 3 weeks ago, I was ok… they didn’t look great against the Giants, but, what the heck… I didn’t actually expect them to win at Rutherford, now did I? Last week… a win that was as close to a failure as a win can possibly be. The Ram’s “ineptitude” was exceeded only by that of the Lions, yet we were but an interception away from being down 10-9 at the end of the game. Real questions began to arise about Zorn’s competence as a play caller. I’m left anxious about the next game with the Lions, especially in light of the fast start the Lions had against the Vikes.

Today… disaster. I have seen Chicken Little… and he looks an awful lot like someone I know. Read More

Musings from Curmudgeon Corner 11/23/09

Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

I have no idea what to think. My Redskins just held to Cowboys to 7 points. My Redskins carried a lead into the fourth quarter, against the Cowboys, at their house. I should be happy.  Yet, I find myself wondering “so, what?”

The problem was, that lead consisted of 6 points.  Six lousy points, on two field goals.  I can’t entirely blame Zorn, this time.  The patched up offensive line took another blow, with the loss for the year of yet another lineman.  The second string running back, who had knocked them dead last week with a clutch performance, went down with a season ending knee injury.

Musings from Curmudgeon Corner 10/13

Posted from Curmudgeon Corner, Maine

Did you know that the Redskins will set a record for consecutive games against winless teams this Sunday? It’s true. Clearly, the Gods have smiled upon us! The easiest schedule in football is ours. Danny must have used some kind of Redskins friendly virus on the scheduling computer. What fun! Read More

Sun Tzu, Daniel Snyder and Jim Zorn

The following post was written by theHogs.net member, Redskin in Canada. I have in the past, been a Dan Snyder apologist, and RiC and I have had a few spirited debates on this topic, but as I slowly leave the dark side and come into the light, much of what he has been saying over the past few seasons has really started to make sense.

Why, Why, Why?

Why on earth do people constantly throw Vinny Cerrato under the bus as what ‘ails this franchise?’

Before you go off the deep end about that question, let me say that this isn’t AT ALL about defending Cerrato – the guy’s track record here in Washington speaks for itself. What I want to know is why people somehow don’t see what he is. Read More
