Skins vs. Saints blog—live from FedEx Field

Skins vs. Saints blog—live from FedEx Field

It doesn't get any better than this.

A live blog of a real game from the stadium.

I'll be in the press box at FedEx Field sending along my observation as the game between the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints unfolds.

It will be the old-school style of blog (is there an old school of blogging?) without the aid of the slick Cover it Live application. I simply can't pull in enough bandwidth there (Hello, Dan Snyder, the 1990's called. They want their press box back) to make it work.

So, until I can figure out something, we'll go with the blog right on the main page. I'll update a couple of times a quarter and you can just hit F5 to refresh the page and get the latest content. If you have any questions or comments, I'll post an email address to which you can send them.

If there is anything worth discussing in the morning I'll throw up a post with the BlackBerry. The main event will start at about 12:30 with the kickoff at 1:00.

See you then.

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
