Recap of the Army-Navy Game

Posted: December 11, 2011 in ArmyNavy, Uncategorized

Navy’s 21-27 victory of Army had the Midshipmen chanting and waving flags the read, “decade of dominance.”

Army-Navy had their 112th meeting for the first time in the vicinity of our nations capitol presented by USAA. With all the traditions and pageantry present by nature it is an unbelievable game. If president Obama came to FedEx field you know it wasn’t for a Washington Redskins game.

For eight seasons the Midshipman came into this game with a successful past; eight straight winning seasons with a bowl game ahead. However, they have neither there 112th meeting against the Black Knights. Navy’s record of 4-7 is frustrating due to losing five games by three points or less. However, their season has ended on a positive not with a victory for the 10th consecutive game against Army (3-9).

The Midshipmen rushed for their most yards against Army since 2008, Navy finished with 296 rushing yards and attempted only three passes. Their passing yardage total was their lowest since 2007.

Although the scoreboard may have read 21-27 Navy, the Blacks Knights also came out winning with moral victory in Saturday’s game. They were able to hold the Midshipmen to a six-point victory. This “decade of dominance” now stands, which is the longest stretch of supremacy by both teams maybe next year Army can snap Navy’s winning streak.

At the end of the day this is more than just football for these men. They aren’t out here for pro football try outs, they are here to just simply play the game they love. It really is the purest form of competition and fight as it gets in sports.

At FedEx Field
TV: CBS

Quick Notes

-Redskins tight ends should be successful against the Jets because they’re weak in the middle (linebacker/safety in coverage)
-Redskins should be able to find Fred Davis. A big key for Washington will be avoiding obvious pass situations so the Jets have to stay in their base defense where they struggle to pressure.
-Jets’ passing game can be powerful because of their receivers
-Jets lack an elite rusher, but they try to pressure through their schemes.

Match ups

These are some key match ups. Stopping the run game is the most important factor in today’s game. They have a more of an advantage in that area. However, Jets QB Mark Sanchez has shown inconsistency and that he can turn the ball, but when the receivers get the ball they can make a run for the game. Also, this where Redskins Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo will have to apply even more pressure Shanchez to keep the run opportunities to a minimum.

C Will Montgomery vs NT Sione Pouha
Montgomery has to work hard to the the Redskins. Pouha is a very good player who will do work.

CB DeAngelo Hall vs. WR Plaxico Burress

-Hall was struggling a few games ago but is now coming off of a great game performance against the Seattle he could be a run. *assuming that INT aren’t blown
-Bureess is a threat in the red zone and has a lot of that could be harmful

LB Brian Orakpo vs. LT D’Brickshaw Ferguson

-Orakpo rushed well on Sunday and with plentty of tackles he should be good to go

-D’Brickshaw has been performing constantly (for the most part) all season

Thanksgiving Special with the Redskins

Posted: November 24, 2011 in Redskins

The Washington Redskins celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday in many ways. Earlier this week it kicked off with Redskins players Jabar Gaffney, Donte Stallworth, Josh Wilson, Brandon Banks, Willie Smith, Oshiomogho Atogwe, Brandyn Thompson, Doug Worthington, Niles Paul, Erik Cook, and Lorenzo Alexander helping out with the The Annual Harvest event at FedEx in Landover, Maryland. These guys organized, handed out, and delivered final Thanksgiving packages to families in the area.

Ryan Kerrigan told me that this Thanksgiving he is thankful for his family, friends and all his fans that support him. When I asked him what his favorite dish was he told me “Turkey, most definitely.Oh and my aunts sweet potatoes!”

When Anthony was asked about his favorite dish he stressed “dressing, not stuffing dressing.”

Here are some Thanksgiving tweets I gathered from some of the players. Looks like they are for food and football as well!
