Blondie's OFFICIAL Game Thread - REDSKINS @ Eagles


Recommended Posts




This is THE place for you to discuss the game during the game.

Remember, keep it clean. If you need to, use the Report Post function. It looks like this report.gif and can be found in the upper right hand corner of each individual post.

FYI if the TV feed is out of synch with the radio stream, pause the TV with your DVR or your TiVO & synch them that way.

While waiting for kickoff, take a few to checkout the FREE digital access to the Game Day Roster Card distributed to the media. It's exclusively for Redskins.com registered members. And checkout the Pre Game Report for some light reading. :)

The Redskins and Eagles have met a total of 140 times over their long rivalry, which dates back to 1934. The Redskins hold the series edge 75-63-5.

The two teams last played on Jan. 1 in the final regular season game of the 2005 season. The Redskins came back from a 20-17 fourth-quarter deficit to win 31-20 at Lincoln Financial Field. The win catapulted the Redskins into the postseason after a 5-year drought. The Redskins and Eagles have clashed once in the postseason, with Washington winning 20-6 in the Wild Card playoff round on Jan. 4, 1990.


  • A Redskins' win over the Eagles would:
    -- Give the Redskins three consecutive wins over the Eagles and two consecutive wins at Lincoln Financial Field
    -- Give head coach Joe Gibbs an all-time record of 20-10 vs. the Eagles
    -- Give head coach Joe Gibbs a 3-2 record against Andy Reid-coached teams
  • The Eagles are the third team coming off a bye that the Redskins will have played this season.
    In Week 5, Washington lost 19-3 to the New York Giants, who were coming off a bye. In Week 7, Washington lost 36-22 to the Indianapolis Colts, who were coming off a bye.
  • Philadelphia is an NFL-best 7-0 in post-bye games since 1999. With last Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys, the Redskins are 6-2 in post-bye games.
  • Redskins safety Troy Vincent played for the Eagles from 1996-2003 and had five consecutive Pro Bowl berths from 1999-2003. Redskins wide receiver James Thrash played for the Redskins from 2001-03. And Redskins linebacker Jeff Posey played with the Eagles briefly in 2001.
  • Special teams coordinator Danny Smith coached special teams in Philadelphia from 1995-96, then switched to defensive backs coach from 1997-98. He coached in Philadelphia under Ray Rhodes, who was the Redskins' defensive coordinator in 2001.



  • Middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter played for the Redskins from 2002-03. He was originally drafted by Philadelphia in 1998, signed with Washington in 2004 as a free agent, then returned to the Eagles in 2004.
  • Kicker David Akers played for the Redskins in 1998.
  • Linebacker Shawn Barber played for the Redskins from 1998-2001. Barber was the Redskins' fourth-round draft choice in 1998.
