Clinton Portis is done for the season following a concussion last month, and now he’s thinking about retirement. As much as I’d hate to see him go, I think now might be the right time. Concussions are one of those injuries that can cause lingering problems for the rest of a person’s life. Pushing on and playing following multiple concussions could cause brain damage down the road. I hope the NFL follows through with its mission to improve head safety in the sport, and I hope more players in Portis’ position think about their loved ones and seriously consider stepping away from the games.

The Redskins will host a rare game against the Kansas City Chiefs on October 18th. This is a non-conference game, but that doesn’t mean we can let up. The Chiefs have an offense that is in shambles, with Matt Cassell ailing and other parts of the offense just not functioning right. We need to pounce on them early and often and make sure they don’t keep this game close. A win against an AFC opponent counts just as much in the win column as a win against the Giants or the Eagles. Tickets for this game are selling for as low as $30 apiece.

Should the Redskins survive their week 15 game against the Giants, they will have another huge divisional matchup on December 27 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys should be the bottom team in the NFC East this season, which still means they’ll probably be 8-8 or 9-7. The division is just that stacked. If a game or two goes their way, they could end up with 10 or 11 wins by this point in the season. The Redskins need to play some smash-mouth football with Tony Romo and company and send them back to Dallas to make golf plans for the offseason. We have a chance to win 2 huge division games in a row at home, and our season might be on the line. Tickets for this game are going for under $45.
The Redskins suffered an embarrassing loss last week, but a Madden video game simulation predicts they’ll pick themselves up this week and beat the Tampa Bay Bucs by a score of 20 – 15. Jason Campbell throws for over 200 yards in this game, and Clinton Portis adds 93 yards rushing.

The Redskins will host the New York Giants on December 21 in a Monday Night Game that very well could be the most important of the season for both teams. There will be just 2 weeks left in the season after this game, so it’s likely to be a do-or-die situation for at least one of these teams. The Redskins revamped defense will be gunning for Eli Manning, who has a tendency to do stupid things under pressure but luckily rarely experiences such pressure. The Giants defense should be one of the best in football this season, so Jason Campbell and company will have their hands full for this game. Tickets can still be found for under $40, but that’s likely to change in the coming months as they become more scarce on the secondary market.

The Redskins will host the New Orleans Saints on December 6th of this year. The Saints were an 8-8 team last year, and it looks like their headed down the same path to mediocrity this season. They have Drew Brees leading their offfense, and he’s one of the most underrated quarterbacks in football, but they also have a lot of holes in their offense and defense. The Saints are not strong enough to win on Drew Brees’ arm, because they just give up too many points. I think this matchup favors the Redskins well, as their defense will hold Brees at bay while the Redskins offense exploits the Saints weaknesses.
Cheap tickets for the game against the Broncos for sale
The Denver Broncos will make a visit to FedEx Field on November 15 for a non conference game against the Redskins. I think the Redskins really lucked out with their non conference schedule, as the Broncos should not be contenders this season and will probably struggle to make it to 6 wins. Their offense looks offensive and they’ve got players who don’t want to play for them. I think it’s games like this that will help make the Redskins playoff contenders in the NFC, even if they have to sneak under the radar of the so-called experts. Tickets for this game are going for under $30 if you know where to look (hint: look up).
Fred Smoot is questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Rams with a rib injury. The Redskins won’t say how the injury occurred, which means I can only assume it was locker room horseplay. I’m sure most of you don’t play fantasy football with individual defensive players, but for those who do you might want to sub Smoot this week.

The Redskins will host one of their biggest games of the season when the Philadelphia Eagles come to town on October 26. This game is a Monday Night Football game, and it will be nationally televised. The Eagles were one of the favorites to win the NFC crown this season, and their signing of Michael “Ron Mexico” Vick has nothing to do with it. In fact, they’ll probably hardly ever play Vick and they just want him as draft pick bait for the end of the year. Donovan McNabb is their quarterback, and he’s a darn good one. We need to stop McNabb if we want to have a chance at winning the division this season. Tickets for this game are reselling at a brisk pace, but you can still find some for under $35.
Giants kick a field goal on their opening drive. Redskins down 3-0.
Clinton Portis runs for a huge gain on his first rushing attempt of the season. Looks to be about 40 yards. Fantasy owners everywhere pat themselves on the back.
Randle El takes a handoff and then looks to pass. He’s tackled in the backfield for a big loss. 2nd down and very long.
Skins fail to convert on 3rd down. The Randle El play took us out of field goal range.
Punt is nearly perfect, but the coverage team fails to prevent it from bouncing in the end zone. Touchback.
