Monday Redskins Links – 10/6

A few links and a few last notes from the weekend.

  • DC Pro Sports Report collects some of the rave reviews the Redskins received around the internet, while Warren Montgomery over at DieHardRedskinsFan looks at the reaction of Philadelphia-area commenters. (Those commenters, incidentally, seem crazy to me; I can’t understand how you turn on McNabb, Reid, and the whole system after what they’ve accomplished there. Whatever.)
  • The last time the Redskins won two back-to-back NFC East road games was on October 19, 1987, long enough ago that babies born on that day will be able to legally drink in a couple of weeks. (Also, that was Black Monday, when the Dow Jones dropped by a then-whopping 500 points. Hope everyone stocked up on hairspray and acid-washed jeans for the big 1987 revival.)
  • Cornerback Sheldon Brown on the Eagles fans on Delaware Online: “It felt like we were on the road for some reason.” I had the same feeling about the Philly fans, and I’m glad to hear that wasn’t them at their legendary finest.
  • Redskins.com TV camera guy Marc Dress struck again. After sending me on a wild goose chase to the stadium in Carolina, he sent me a 4:30 a.m. wake-up call in Philly. You can imagine how amusing that was — and apparently I lucked out, because when I told them I hadn’t asked for the first guy to come up and knock, they canceled Dress’s 5:00 a.m. follow-up call also.
  • And for today’s Jim Zorn link, something a little less zany and a little more informative — appropriate, following his comments in his press conference. Barry Svrluga’s story on the developing relationship between Zorn and Jason Campbell fits that bill, and it’s a nice long read as well.

  1. Man I love Snyders emotion in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XfZTbue8HA)

    It feels great to know the owner of our team rides and dies with the team.

    Many owners around the sports world don’t show emotion or don’t seem to care what happens to their respective teams on-the-field.

  2. That last article you linked was a great read. Thanks!

    It’s fate, and deja vu
