Power Rankings Roundup: Week 12

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 20, 2013 – 11:55 am

Indulge in a bit of the blues with me as we let go of the Eagles sweep. Music’s good medicine.

It’s been a rough week, but the NFL machine stops for no one. Professional football players are professional compartmentalizers. The team will field a few more questions about Philadelphia today, but it can’t afford to linger. The focus at Redskins Park will shift to the team ahead, the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers.

That being said, the aftermath from Philadelphia enacted a downward trend in this week’s power rankings. Read more »

First Quarter Happenings: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 12:57 pm

(AP)

(AP)

The Redskins have one loss left. Maybe two. Okay, the NFC East is really bad. Maybe three.

In any case, nothing mathematically final will happen today, but the outcome of an away tilt in Philadelphia will be the strongest indicator of Washington’s postseason potential. By now you know the legend of 3-6. The Redskins have played poorly enough to put their backs against the wall. Sunday could be a last shot at redemption, or it could be one more case of what could have been.

Philadelphia has a different quarterback, but its most important cog remains the same. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb saying LeSean McCoy is the most elusive runner in the NFL. DeSean can Jackson can take the top off a defense.

Alfred Morris has been running better every week. If the Eagles are to stop him, sideline-to-sideline linebacker DeMeco Ryans will be key.

Is today the start of another miraculous streak, or is it one more nail in the coffin? Follow the first quarter in the live blog below. Read more »

Redskins At Eagles: Experts Pick ‘Em

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 10:41 am

We all respond to stress with our own ways.

Matthew Shultz persecutes lawn gnomes. With their backs against the wall, hopefully the Redskins will respond in a more constructive manner.

In case you haven’t heard this 40 times this week, it’s worth noting last time Washington was 3-6, it reeled off seven consecutive wins en route to a division title.

No one at CBS Sports sees that happening.

Inside Sonny’s Office: No More Grudges

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 15, 2013 – 5:06 pm

(AP)

(AP)

Sonny Jurgensen roams Redskins Park on Fridays, posting up in his honorary office, a black leather couch in the lobby. There’s even a nameplate. Ever the opportunist, I like to visit with Sonny and solicit some blog material. This week’s brief chat covered his Philadelphia memories,  what the Redskins need to do in Week 11 and his thoughts on Nick Foles.

The old chip on his shoulder crumbled to pieces at some point.

In 1964, Philadelphia didn’t want Sonny Jurgensen. He made the Eagles pay.

Jurgensen looks at the game today and sees too many differences to hold a grudge. Shibe Park and Franklin Field no longer host NFL games.

When Jurgensen thinks of Philadelphia now, he thinks of visiting Tommy McDonald and looks back at one of the strangest days he had in an Eagles uniform.

Trade Between Rivals Favored Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 14, 2013 – 12:57 pm

sonny-jurgensen

Why would you ever trade a 24-year old quarterback who’s best years were ahead of him and was the No. 2 overall pick just three years earlier for a quarterback who was turning 30 years old before the upcoming season and wasn’t getting any younger?

Because that 30-year old would produce magical season after magical season en route to enshrinement in Canton.

This swap of course is the one involving Norm Snead and Sonny Jurgensen. In the pantheon of most lopsided trades in sports history along with the Babe going to New York from Boston and the Warriors sending Wilt the Stilt out the door, the Redskins picked the Eagles’ pocket clean.

Determined to show them an “old man” can still man a team even after joining the 3o Club, Jurgensen had one of the greatest individual performances in NFL history in his first game against the team that drafted him.

Santana Moss’ Son Encountered One Nice Fan In Philadelphia

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 14, 2013 – 7:00 am

(AP)

(AP)

Don’t be deceived. Even the nicest looking fans in Philadelphia are merciless, throaty critics who indiscriminately spew a stream of invective at even the most innocent offender. At least that’s the stereotype.

Those Philadelphians (Philadelphites? Philadelphonics?) picked a fight with Clinton Portis’ mom.

They forced one of their own to plead for an end to the booing.

They booed my grandma for taking too long to write a $2.00 check for milk at the checkout counter. Okay that last one didn’t happen, but you see where I’m going with this.

Eagles fans are tough to please. They can be  intimidating for visiting fans. But according to Santana Moss, there’s at least one good guy at Lincoln Financial Field.

Series History: Redskins Eagles

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 4:30 pm

(AP)

(AP)

Robert Griffin III was a question mark, untested with no preseason experience. Chip Kelly stood on the sidelines wearing a darker shade of green.

In the 157th meeting between the Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles, a Week 1 marquee matchup on Monday Night Football showcased two of the most prominent NFL story lines from the summer of 2013.

How would RGIII fare in his first game action since rehabilitating a surgically reconstructed right knee? How effective would Chip Kelly’s quick-strike Oregon offense be in the NFL?

Back-to-Back, Jack?

Posted by Evan Redmon on September 4, 2013 – 9:08 am

Some divisions, like the AFC East, are dominated by one team year after year. The Patriots have seemingly won their division every season since the Beatles were still together (ok, only nine out of the last 10, but still).

The Redskins would love to achieve that level of dominance in their neck of the woods, and things are looking as good as they’ve been in many years, after winning the division last season and romping through the preseason.

However, repeating as NFC East champions has proven to be very elusive as of late.

It’s been almost a decade since any team (the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles) went back-to-back as the No. 1 team in the division. All four NFC East teams are in big markets and have ownership groups who are very aggressive about winning, which makes for a highly competitive bunch, year after year. The NFC has almost certainly been the most competitive division in football, when taken as a whole over the past 30 years.

After nearly a decade of back-and-forth, the time is ripe for a back-to-back champ. But can the Redskins do it?

2012 Rewind: Sweep Of NFC East Rival

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 22, 2013 – 3:15 pm

(AP photo)

(AP photo)

Since 1934 the Redskins and Eagles have squared off 156 times and unlike the heated rivalry with the Cowboys and the longstanding tension with the Giants, the Redskins have won over 50 percent of their games against their Pennsylvania counterparts.

Similar to the inaugural installment of Redskins-Eagles in 1934, the Redskins swept in 2012 thanks to a clipping of the Eagles wings in a 31-6 victory in Week 11 and a seven point victory in Week 16 that sprung them into a do-or-die matchup with the Cowboys a week later.

While the Eagles had been the Redskins worst nightmare throughout the early 2000’s, one man didn’t even blink when Philly came to town last year–Robert Griffin III.

#WASvsPHI: Fourth Quarter Conclusions

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 23, 2012 – 3:57 pm

The Washington Redskins are one win away from an NFC East title.

The Redskins — now winners of six straight — defeated the host Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 today at Lincoln Financial Field, setting up a battle for the division title next Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at FedExField.

The win also ensures a winning regular-season record for Washington (9-6) for the first time since the 2007 season.

Here’s some key plays from each drive in the wild fourth quarter:
