By MARK F. GRAY Of all the embarrassing bad investments that Daniel Snyder has made in the burgundy and gold Albert Haynesworth now officially ranks as the worst. He was overpaid then underperformed and ultimately became a distraction that helped lead to the demise of what appeared to be a promising season. However, there is […]

By MARK F. GRAY Ultimately what may be the downfall for this year’s road to the NFL Playoffs will be the Washington Washington Football Team inability to beat the bottom feeders of the NFC North. After laying an egg in Detroit it cracked at FedEx Field Sunday as they blew opportunities and slipped again at […]

By MARK F. GRAY If nothing else Washington Washington Football Team coach Mike Shanahan proved that despite some personnel and public relations miscues that he has changed the culture of the franchise with the victory at Tennessee. Where Joe Gibbs – the next generation – talked of heroic efforts after his team lost and Jim […]

By MARK F. GRAY Since Team Shanahan benched then lied on Donovan McNabb they should have learned a valuable lesson.

However, with victories in their final two games before the hiatus the Washington […]

The Washington Washington Football Team could not find a way to take full advantage of the chances created by the special teams and defense and fell 27-24 on a […]

BY MARK F. GRAY There is finally some merit to the Washington Washington Football Team playing in FedEx Field. Their defense has taken the theory of shipping property to a new level this year with a punishing physical style that has led to consecutive victories with injured opponents in their wake. They will be pushed […]

For the second time in as many home games the Washington Washington Football Team gave their fans cardiac arrest and needed overtime to steal a game from a Super Bowl contender beating the Green Bay Packers 16-13. In a game that was a testament to their resilience, they won a war of atrition in where […]
