Stuck in the middle: bye time

Washington’s bye-week actually came at the ideal time this season. A bye-week too early in the year might not rest any of the players and could further set back a team trying to find its groove. A bye-week too late...

Could be sunny in South Beach for Terps

This past week has been a little stormy in Miami. It may not have been a “Hurricane” but more like a tropical depression. It all started last Saturday when Miami starting quarterback Jacory Harris went down with a concussion. The...

Maryland-Miami preview: eliminating the "yea, but..."

The Terps travel to Miami this Saturday, in what will be the biggest game of the year to so far for the Maryland football team. That is until they square off against Florida State in two weeks at home. More...

A few choice words about shootouts

I’ve developed a bad habit of shutting my eyes during shootouts. I’ve never been a fan of this high-anxiety tie-breaker – sudden-death overtime is scary enough. I think all devoted fans hate shootouts, and I’ll tell you why: they’re...

Three Thursday thoughts

A tried but true option at 3C?  Ideally, the hope is that we acquire a second-line center by March and that Marcus Johansson (MarJo) settles in as the third-line pivot. The 3C position needs to be manned by someone who...

When it comes to player leadership, how do the Caps measure up?

It’s not surprising that captaincy in the NHL doesn’t follow a logic fans can understand. Most recently, Chris Clark was retained as captain despite the fact that long-term injuries kept him out of large numbers of games.  When asked why...

An early look at the Wizards defense

A quick look at a basketball box score reveals a glaring deficiency — the info it contains about individual defense sucks. This means that half the game has long been relegated to guesswork, opinion and reputation. The solution is straightforward:...

Ignoring the burning wreckage: part 1

Here's what I'm taking away from D.C. United's 2010 season: Andy Najar looks like the real deal, and Jaime Moreno retired as the MLS all-time leading scorer. All other memories from this season are getting the Stalin treatment. Juan Manuel...

The most divisive issue in Caps-land

I’m ready to tackle the most divisive issue in Caps-land. Not the lack of a 2C or a shut-down defenseman, not Bruce Boudreau’s playoff coaching abilities. No, someone much more divisive. Jeff Schultz. Let’s do this. I was chatting recently...

The Dunn decision

By Ryan Korby A few weeks ago, I argued that the Nationals should sign Adam Dunn to a long-term contract, but last week’s announcement that Dunn is a Type A free agent makes the decision much harder. The Nationals seem...

Talk about your all-time backfires

By Evan Bliss Life is lived forwards and understood backwards, as Kierkegaard wrote, and I can only hope at the end of this season to understand what has transpired here. I’m all too familiar with the Redskin Roller Coaster, available...

By Stephen L. Carter My most painful moment as a Redskins fan came on November 15, 1970. I was an eleventh grader in Ithaca, New York, a town where nearly everybody rooted for the Giants. That Sunday, the two teams...

Weekend base hits

Lions-Redskins: The good, the bad and the unbelievably ugly

By Jason Woodmansee The Good Brandon Banks. That’s it. The Bad Gee, where to start? The offensive line, the key penalties, the fact that the Redskins made my 5-year-old cry. Yeah, that’s pretty bad. The Unbelievably Ugly Really, Mike Shanahan?...

Happy improvised holidays, Terps fans

By Rick Nelligan What a fantastic improvised holiday weekend for Maryland. It all started off with a “Merry Faustmas,” (as coined by testudotimes.com,) when star Baltimore shooting guard Nick Faust committed to the Terps on Thursday. Which was followed by...
