Turn your McNabb no. 5 jerseys into Shuler jerseys

So... the new quarterback of your Washington Redskins is Rex “The Sex Cannon” Grossman. Now that the shock has (almost) worn off, here are the two ways to look at it. The Positive Way If you don’t think that McNabb...

Playing in snow and skipping dessert

The other day on Redskins Insider, Jason Reid posted that the Redskins are the league's only cold-weather team without an indoor practice facility. I hadn't known this. He further noted that when meteorological conditions turn foul, the team often practices...

Dallas week: the battle for the bottom

Wade Phillips is gone. So is Tatalia, Barzini, the heads of all the five families. A bit of remembrance before crucifying his replacement... First thing I'll miss is Wade's sense of humor: when he told his players to get their...

Political Football: Changing of the guard

Texas Sen. John Cornyn on Washington's beleaguered leaders It was a cold January day when hope and change came to Washington. When the sun set over the Potomac that day, a changing of the guard took place that would leave...

Caps-Penguins 24/7: Part 1

Last night was the first episode of HBO's 24/7 featuring the Caps and Penguins on their way to the Winter Classic. I liked it -- as stupid as it is, I care about these guys, and I value this opportunity...

Bring back Robin Ficker

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis has made some good changes and brought a renewed energy to the Wizards organization since taking over. While the positive energy hasn’t exactly translated to performance on the court, his willingness to make changes and own...

Where's plan B?

Caps Nation seems to be split down the middle trying to figure out whether this six-game slide is a fluke due to injuries and bad luck, or if the Caps really have core issues. This being Washington D.C., I’m going...

Troubleshooting the Terps struggles

It has been an extremely frustrating season thus far for the Terrapins basketball squad. For every blowout of a cupcake team, there has been an equally maddening loss to a quality opponent. Each time the Terps had an opportunity to...

MLS re-entry draft, part 2: the Re-Re-Entrying

It's a good thing that last week's round 1 of the re-entry draft wasn't covered on TV, because any network blocking off an hour of time would have ended up airing 55 minutes of Alf reruns. And the Alf reruns...

What are the Caps doing right?

'Tis the season, so I'm throwing the Caps a bone today. Lately the coverage for the Caps has been a real downer. In case you haven't been reading (and anyone trying to get into the Holiday spirit should probably take...

Can we all stop freaking out please?

I know times are tough in Caps land. Believe me, I want the team to win just as badly as you do, and it sucks when they lose and do so repeatedly. But please, for the love of Mary, let’s...

The Redskins and the infinite sadness

So, yeah. This season has been a bit of a bummer. But the question is - how much of a bummer is it from an historical perspective? Let's take a look at some of the more soul-crushing seasons of the...

MVP: Must Vacate the Premises, Graham Gano

Losing in the final seconds, at home, on a botched extra point, in a game that didn’t really matter, against one of the few teams with a worse 2009 record, feels like getting kicked in the ribs with steel-toed boots...

The World Cup will not bring soccer to the Middle East

Pretend for a minute that you're a non-corrupt member of the FIFA Executive Committee. I know, I know - a ridiculous hypothetical, but this is just a thought exercise. Imagine it's last Thursday. You're back in your suite at the...
