James Harrison: “Somebody kills somebody with a knife, u going to blame the knife?” Pat Paulsen: “The problem isn’t guns, it’s bullets.” #NFL
Dennis Rodman found in contempt of court? Boy, he’s really toned it down. He used to be in contempt of a lot more than that. #NBA #Pistons
Every time I read ”#NHL rejects offer” I wonder: Was it a pad save, or did the owners glove it? #Caps
My #Heisman ballot went Johnny Football, Te’o + Braxton Miller. The game Manziel had at Bama clinched it for me. #Aggies #Irish #OhioState
No sense in getting too hung up on Manziel being a (redshirt) freshman. In a year, he’ll be eligible for the #NFL draft. #Heisman #Aggies
Kind words from NPR’s Bill Littlefield about my book on the #NFL’s salad days, “The National Forgotten League.” http://bit.ly/UsjVmW
Here’s the link to my NPR interview with Littlefield. http://bit.ly/UsjVmW #NFL
Having been cleared by the Bomb-Sniffing Dog, I’m about to enter the inner sanctum of FedEx Field. #Redskins #Ravens
I don’t know if the Bomb-Sniffing Dog has a name, but I always call him Astro. #Redskins #Ravens
The #Redskins are 1-3 vs. the #Ravens. They were 5-15 vs. the #Colts when they were in Baltimore. So … do the math: 6-18 overall. #NFL
John Harbaugh might be last coach #Redskins face this season who will still have his job next year. Shurmur, Reid, Garrett next. #Ravens
Twice in the first two drives, #Redskins receivers have been stopped a yard short of a TD. Garcon, then Morgan. Gotta be a record.
14 points already for the #Redskins. Only once in last 20 years have they scored more in first quarter. In this game: http://bit.ly/120Jz7B
You’re seeing what #RG3 is up against. The #Redskins had the biggest 1st Q, yardage-wise, in #NFL this season — and they’re tied at 14.
Darrel Young was so (uncharacteristically) far downfield on that 28-yard catch, he was probably using MapQuest. #Redskins #Ravens
I keep seeing flags being thrown great distances by the officials. They must think it’s a Pass, Punt and Kick Contest. #Redskins
Santa Claus on the field at halftime. The #Redskins should probably double-cover him. #Ravens
I’d be OK with DeAngelo Hall getting a personal foul penalty if he ever impersonally fouled anybody. #Redskins #Ravens
Kai Forbath, “The Kid Who Batted 1.000,” knocks a 48-yarder through to narrow the #Ravens lead to 21-17. #Redskins
Bernard Pierce runs for 11 to the Baltimore 46. At this point, Franklin Pierce could run for 11 vs. the #Redskins defense. #Ravens
Morris has gone over 100 yards rushing for the 6th time. Only one #Redskins back has had more 100-yard games in a season: Portis, 9, in ‘05.
Monday night it was #Redskins 17, #Giants 16. Now, late in the 3rd Q, it’s #Ravens 21, #Redskins 20. Close enough for ya?
You don’t often see an offense Go Fetal with a 1-point lead and over 10 minutes left. But the #Ravens are doing it. #Redskins
If Lorenzo Alexander keeps hitting people like that, the #NFL is going to get rid of punt returns, too. #Redskins #Ravens
#Ravens continuing to do a great job of collapsing pocket, crowding #RG3, making it difficult for him to see field. #Redskins
December. Darkness closing in. RG3 out of the game. RG3 back in. Gotta love this. #Redskins #Ravens
About that backup O-lineman the #Redskins were supposed to have drafted with the Cousins pick … #Ravens
To OT we go, tied at 28. Here are the highest-scoring overtime games in #Redskins history: http://bit.ly/QRBqyN #Ravens
If I were a #Redskins fan, I’m not sure I’d want Cousins to warm up for this OT. He did just fine stone-cold at the end of regulation.
As if the #Redskins‘ playoff picture needed to get any more crowded: The #Rams, who beat them in Week 2, have won 3 straight and are 6-6-1.
Good news on #RG3‘s MRI. If it had been bad, though, I’m sure Dan Snyder would have had #Redskins One gassed up and ready to go to Lourdes.
Here’s the last time (before today) 2 rookie QBs on same team threw for TD. One of them was later a #Redskins assistant. http://bit.ly/U886Bj
Taking a poll today. The question: Who’s more dead, the #Raiders or Al Davis? #NFL
#NFL teams have scored 50+ pts in a game 6 times this season. That’s the most since ‘66, when they did it 7 times (and 3 more in the AFL).
The #NFL record for 50-point games is 9 in 1950. The #Rams and #Giants each had three of them that year, another record.
The ‘66 #Cowboys and ‘69 #Vikings also had 3 50-point games. The #Redskins have never had more than one in a season. #NFL
Which QB draw is your favorite, Cousins’ vs. #Ravens or Rutledge’s vs. #Lions in 1990 with :18 left in 4th Q? http://bit.ly/hx1xYb #Redskins
Interesting parallel: The #Redskins won both games in OT on a 34-yard FG (Chip Lohmiller in ‘90, Kai Forbath on Sunday).
I’m all for the #NFL eliminating kickoffs, as long as they eliminate the pregame shows that precede them.
Before that 63-yarder for the #Pats, Donte Stallworth’s last TD catch was on Christmas Eve 2011 vs. #Vikes. Rex Grossman threw it. #Redskins
Since mid-2010, the #Patriots are 33-8. Their 8 losses have been by a total of 30 points. They just beat the 11-1 #Texans by 28. #NFL
This morning’s puzzler: Who’s paying more, the #Rays to Longoria or Tony Parker to Longoria? #Spurs #NBA #MLB
Bloomington South HS in Indiana won a girls basketball game 107-2 Tuesday night. The best part? Rex Grossman graduated from there. #Redskins
Happy Boxcars Day, as we say around the casino. #121212
BTW, there will be no 13-13-13 — unless, of course, the century decides to expand and add Maryland and Rutgers. #BigTen #Terps
Most INTs by an #NFL LB in the 2000s: Ray Lewis 24, Brian Urlacher 22, London Fletcher/Keith Bullock 21. #Ravens #Bears #Redskins #Titans
Donte Stallworth is done for the year. Totals: 1 reception, 63 yards, 1 TD. One of the greatest 1-catch seasons ever. #NFL #Pats #Redskins
But not as great as Mark Malone’s in ‘81 (1-90-1) or Chris Hope’s in ‘03 (1-81-1). It’s surprisingly competitive. #NFL #Pats #Redskins
Here are the top 1-catch seasons since the merger: http://bit.ly/TYHdlY #NFL #Pats #Redskins #Steelers
My favorite is HOFer Night Train Lane in ‘56: 1 catch, 75 yards, doesn’t score(!). #NFL #Pats #Redskins #Steelers #Cardinals
If indeed 7 schools are leaving the #BigEast Conference, does that mean they’re going to have to drop the “Big”? #CBB
