Hard Hits with LaVar Arrington: September 5, 2010 - September 11, 2010

A fond Dallas week memory

On the night of Dec. 28, 2002, Darrell Green gave a very spirited speech to the team in the hotel. It was the night before the last game of the season, against the Cowboys. It was also the night before...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: the running backs

This breakdown could go either way, because there are question marks surrounding both the Redskins and Cowboys. There are questions about both teams' offensive lines. There are questions about the durability of both backfields. The age factor is also a...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: quarterbacks

So entering this post, the Redskins and Cowboys are tied at 2-2 in my matchups. I will declare who I believe has the edge, but this is a comparison, not a matchup. Let's start with quarterbacks, Donovan McNabb is in...

Week 1 NFL picks

Here are my picks for this week's NFL games. There are some great match ups. New Orleans over Minnesota - Favre will still be knocking off the rust, defense can't win this one alone. Pittsburgh over Atlanta - Home opener...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: Trent Williams vs. DeMarcus Ware

Talk about the worst possible first-game challenges for a rookie. The NFL is a place where it takes time to put the tools in the toolbox for challenges like the one Trent Williams faces against DeMarcus Ware Sunday night. Unfortunately...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: DeAngelo Hall & Carlos Rogers vs. Miles Austin & Roy Williams

This will be one of the most intense matchups of the game. DeAngelo Hall is a fierce competitor and I'm assuming Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is going to give Hall exclusive rights to wide receiver Miles Austin. But if...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: Redskins outside linebackers vs. Cowboys offensive tackles

One position on this Redskins team that I have confidence in is outside linebacker. It just so happens that one of the Redskins' strengths is matched up against one of Dallas's biggest question marks -- the offensive tackles. Both tackles...

Redskins-Cowboys matchups: Rabach vs. Ratliff

During the course of the week I will post what I believe to be the key matchups to watch during Sunday night's Redskins-Cowboys game. My first highlighted matchup is the battle between Redskins center Casey Rabach and Cowboys tackle Jay...

A few thoughts on Maryland's win over Navy

I watched this game, and and it looked as if Maryland would run away with it early on. But after settling into the game, Navy came storming back to get within a field goal of tying up the score late...

Reports: Haynesworth may be inactive week 1

Reports are surfacing that Albert Haynesworth will not be active for the opener in a divisional game against the Cowboys. My first thought was, at this point it would have to be health related, but then I saw a report...

Washington Redskins final roster cuts

Many of the Redskins' final roster cuts came as no surprise to me, but some of them did. Although I believe the release of Willie Parker came as no surprise, I was shocked that Ryan Torain did not make this...
