The Redskins vs. The Panthers preview: numbers by the dozen

The Redskins and the Panthers square off this Sunday, in Carolina, at 1:00pm. Both teams are coming off tough divisional losses, yet even though the Redskins are 3-3 and the Panthers are 1-5, Carolina is actually favored to win this game (two point favorites, as of this post). Let’s take a look at both of […]

Good Rex, Bad Rex, Goodbye Rex, and Good Riddance, Rex

Rex Grossman was not the answer at Quarterback for the Washington Redskins. He never was, and now he certainly never will be, either. Let’s be honest: we knew he wasn’t the answer at quarterback last December, when he was promoted over Donovan McNabb. We knew he wasn’t the answer when Mike Shanahan turned the preseason […]

The defense seemed to be a mish-mash of players playing in positions they weren’t suited for, or positions that they essentially […]

Landry wasn’t injured, and he […]

Gridiron Gab NFL Preseason Power Rankings

1. New Orleans Saints – Improved ground game for Drew Brees is scary to think about.  Mark Ingram has the best interior line in football to work with.  A loaded defensive front combined with a top-tier secondary has coordinator Gregg Williams smiling.  Gotta love Sean Payton’s aggressive play calling on offense.  Superdome is the definition […]
