Scoreless First Quarter

Well, not a bad start at all.

No early turnovers.

The Redskins are winning field position and moving the ball. This start is not too shabby. There is an energy to the way they are playing and guys seem to be fairly pumped up. Philly looks flat and we'll see how the rest of the game holds up. I'd expect the Eagles to be getting Brian Westbrook out in space more and using him in the passing game.

Ummm Sui can not hit a 45 yarder but he'll try a 54 yard kick?

Suisham won't make this kick.

Posted by: jiacinto | December 21, 2008 4:52 PM | Report abuse

need to throw the ball to Thomas, Betts, and Davis a couple more times, to open up Moss, and Cooley, and Portis..

Here come the dumb play calling.

Posted by: Curzon417 | December 21, 2008 4:53 PM | Report abuse

And now there is a long return. Typical Redskins. Look for PHL to go ahead 3-0 or 7-0 now because they tried a stupid FG. The Redskins should really let Suisham go next year.

I'M SORRY, ZORN HAS TO BE FIRED AFTER THAT BONE HEAD CALL.

That thing was wayyyy short. WTF does Suisham DO all week?

He has no leg strength.

Predictions? 24-7 Philly. Now, looking more like 17-7, though.

Thank God for the D.

Why o why o why is Randle-El still returning kicks? Is he the worst in the NFL or what?

Posted by: slats999 | December 21, 2008 4:58 PM | Report abuse

I blame that missed field goal on Zorn, he should know Suisham can't make those, especially with that wind. Suisham now has most misses in the NFL.

why is ARE still our punt returner??

Posted by: rachel216 | December 21, 2008 4:58 PM | Report abuse

Please release randle el. This guy does nothing but fair catch. He's afraid of being hit.

Posted by: MrRedskin21

The D blew five possible picks last week.

Mr El has to go !!!!!!!!!

Can this offense be any worst ?

Looks like the O line is tired already.

Posted by: Curzon417 | December 21, 2008 5:01 PM | Report abuse

You want ARE to return a 20-yard punt in a strong wind?
oookkkkkaaaayyyy.

Posted by: daggar | December 21, 2008 5:01 PM | Report abuse

Will they get rid of Suisham in the offseason? I hope so.

Posted by: jiacinto | December 21, 2008 5:01 PM | Report abuse

Hey, was that blocking I saw?

2nd & 6. Getting into crucial territory. Whoa, Betts having a good game!

How did Betts catch that?

Posted by: jiacinto | December 21, 2008 5:04 PM | Report abuse

I like it a lot..

what are they chanting?

Posted by: BeantownGreg | December 21, 2008 5:05 PM | Report abuse

Cooley, characteristically short (for this season).

Posted by: slats999 | December 21, 2008 5:05 PM | Report abuse

nice to see them going long for a change....

On a free play, you have to try to thread that.

Geez, d00ds, get some MONISTAT® if you're that itchy.

Did anyone catch what the crowd was chanting right after Portis's big carry?

Betts having a good half.

Betts is tearing it up, nice catch after nice catch.

Zorn finally added that to his playbook.

Wow. That would have been good for 45.

3 more than I figured they'd have in this half...

Posted by: davebutz | December 21, 2008 5:12 PM | Report abuse

I like it, spreading the ball around, lots of guys catching passes, lots of guys running the ball....give sellers the ball...

Would definitely like to see both Sleepy Davis and Cooley at the same time when we're in the Red Zone.... or Devin Thomas?

I think the message to CP needs to be that he (and all RBs) are expendable and the team can do ok without him. Betts is just fine.

Posted by: snoopylad | December 21, 2008 5:14 PM | Report abuse

Anyone remember the last time we had a lead?

This is a stupid challenge. Doesn't Zorn realize that only Tom Coughlin wins challenges?
