I mentioned in my game notes that I was just about on the line of scrimmage for the Randle El to Cooley pass in Sunday’s game, and now I have proof. Sort of. If you have very, very sharp eyes, and know what I was wearing on Sunday. Look:
Okay, so I was five yards behind the line of scrimmage. That, plus my firm conviction that I was ON the line, explains why I was so convinced that Randle El had crossed it before throwing.
- This comes up now because Randle El dissects the play in detail on “Anatomy of a Play” on NFL.com, and it’s a great look at how they made that touchdown happen.
- MJD at Shutdown Corner discovers the awesomeness that is Chris Paul, and his weekly Redskins songs. If you are also not familiar with Paul, this is a good intro; if you are familiar … well, it’s nice to see the guy getting some pub on a national blog.
- I’ve gotten a few emails about this lately, so: In the middle of the Zornification of Redskins Nation, an open letter from a fan focusing on Joe Gibbs’s contributions to this year’s team. It’s a good, well-thought-out, heartfelt piece.
- And, since The Express: The Ernie Davis Story opens today, a link back to my thoughts on the film after I saw a preview screening at a Jason Taylor charity event. Short version: a solid movie and a very important story, but possibly not the epic it wants to be.
