It’s that time of the week again.

Here’s our look back at who you, the Redskins Blog faithful, predicted would excel against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Wednesday’s preseason matchup, as well as who you voted as the MVR(edskin).

One quick note: I was very happy to see a big increase in participation for this game. I certainly hope this trend continues.

The first poll, posted before the game, gave you readers a chance to predict who you thought would shine against the Buccaneers.

Cut Day A Nerve-Racking Process For All

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 30, 2012 – 11:54 am

Whether veteran or rookie, “cut day” are two words you never want to hear.

That day is coming up quickly for the Washington Redskins — as in, by 9 p.m. Friday, the team must cut down its roster from 75 players to its final 53 men.

By noon on Saturday, an additional eight players are signed to the team’s practice squad.

Today is an off day for the Redskins players, who are fresh off their 30-3 preseason finale win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The coaching staff, however, is not taking the day off, and you can be sure that they’re meeting throughout the day today and tomorrow to make some difficult decisions.

And, as usual, several players went to Twitter in the past few hours to talk about cut day and their hopes for the rest of the week:

Quarterback Robert Griffin III:

WAS-TB: Fourth Quarter Conclusions

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 10:08 pm

(AP photo)

Of course the Redskins’ defense set the tone as the fourth quarter of tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got underway.

Linebacker Bryan Kehl continued his strong preseason with an interception — the Redskins’ third pick of the game — at the Bucs’ 6-yard line, and returned it 43 yards.

That play was just the icing on the cake of a strong defensive effort by the Redskins that saw three interceptions and five sacks in the Redskins’ 30-3 win, as the team finishes the 2012 preseason with a 3-1 record for the second straight year.

WAS-TB: Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 9:36 pm

(AP photo)

The third quarter didn’t start off so well for quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins’ offense.

Cousins was picked off on the Redskins’ first drive of the second half, giving the ball to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at their own 29-yard line.

But the Redskins’ defense continued its dominance from that point.

On that next drive for the Buccaneers, rookie cornerback Richard Crawford nabbed his second interception of the preseason, giving the ball right back to Cousins and the offense.

A 10-yard run by Roy Helu Jr., a 47-yard bomb to Brandon Banks and a 15-yard touchdown run by Helu Jr. later, and the Redskins offense was cookin’ again.

At the end of the third quarter, the Redskins remain in front of the Buccaneers by a score of 30-3.

Video: U.S. Gold Medalists Visit FedExField

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 9:10 pm

There were two guests at FedExField for tonight’s preseason finale between the Washington Redskins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that were probably itching to get their shot at a field goal.

Becky Sauerbrunn and Lori “Lightning” Lindsey — both former standout soccer players at the University of Virginia whose U.S. Women’s National Soccer team won gold this summer at the Olympics — were seen walking around the field and the stadium, taking in all of the sights and sounds.

The Redskins Blog was fortunate enough to be able to catch up with Sauerbrunn and Lindsey. Here’s the video:

WAS-TB: Halftime Recollections

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 8:34 pm

(AP photo)

The Washington Redskins’ sack party of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Brett Ratliff continued into the second quarter of tonight’s game at FedExField, which at halftime features the Redskins leading the Buccaneers, 16-0.

Already with two sacks in the first quarter — by Marlon Favorite and Delvin Johnson — defensive lineman Kendric Golston came up huge on a 3rd and 10 from the Bucs’ 48, sacking Ratliff for a 8-yard loss and forcing the punt.

Later in the quarter, on another third down, linebacker Bryan Kehl downed Ratliff for a sack, ending yet another Buccaneers’ drive. Then, on first down with about two minutes remaining in the half, defensive end Darrion Scott broke free for a sack — the Redskins’ fifth of the game.

There were also some fireworks for the Redskins’ offense on their first drive of the second quarter.

Rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins found wide receiver Anthony Armstrong over the top for a 46-yard pass-and-catch to the Tampa Bay 14-yard line. Two plays later, running back Evan Royster rumbled 13 yards to the 1-yard line, setting up his own touchdown on the next play. It was a five-play, 59-yard drive that took 2:11 off the clock.

WAS-TB: First Quarter Reflections

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 7:44 pm

(AP image)

Kicker Billy Cundiff gave himself a quick introduction to Washington Redskins fans in the first quarter of tonight’s preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Signed by the Redskins Tuesday, Cundiff’s opening kickoff sailed out of the back of the end zone for a touchback; after a three-and-out by the Buccaneers, the Redskins’ offense got to the Tampa Bay 21-yard line before stalling, leading to a 39-yard field goal on Cundiff’s first attempt as the Redskins kicker.

Cundiff’s ensuing kickoff was then downed at the back of the end zone.

It was a promising start for the Pro Bowl kicker in a first quarter that also featured a strong Redskins defensive second unit playing as starters tonight.

Exclusive Video: Redskins Take The Field

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 6:34 pm

(AP photo)

Simply put, several men are fighting for their jobs tonight as the Washington Redskins take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at FedExField in both teams’ preseason finales.

With rosters currently at 75 — 15 less than on Monday — the final round of roster cuts down to 53 men is Friday. That means this game could be one of the final chances for several players to impress the coaching staff and the team’s front office personnel.

Though several starters aren’t playing tonight — they’re just wearing their jerseys without the pads — the rest of the team is, without a doubt, ready for some action tonight.

Here’s a video of some of the units and coaches taking the field tonight:

Video: Dale Earnhardt Jr. Visits Game

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 5:27 pm

He’s one of the most famous Redskins fans out there, and he’s getting his first look at his favorite team tonight in their preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., No. 88 himself, has been hanging around FedExField tonight taking in the football atmosphere as he takes just a little break from his Diet Mountain Dew/United States National Guard/7-Eleven Chevrolet Impala in the NASCAR Spring Cup Series.

Earnhardt, 37, who races for Hendrick Motorsports, was on Redskins Nation prior to the game and talked with host Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, about what he’s looking for from his favorite team this season.

The Redskins Blog snuck in and got some video of that appearance. Here it is:
