Things have begun to heat up in the NFL as some of the best teams show what they're made of. Two 5-0 teams, Dallas and New England, faced off. It was a game that will not be forgotten. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo didn't show a whole lot at the beginning of the game, but he pulled it together and managed to rally his team with 17 points in the second quarter. Romo was rolling, but the Cowboys failed to stop New England quarterback Tom Brady and the rest of the Patriots. Dallas lost to New England, 48-27.

The 2008 NFL season opened this weekend with some pretty interesting match-ups and some major news stories. One story in particular being Chad Ocho Cinco (formerly known as Chad Johnson) and the injured New England quarterback, Tom Brady. This week, reigning Super Bowl champions the New York Giants opened up in New York against Washington. They came out and in their first drive showed why they won the Super Bowl last year. Quarterback Eli Manning rushed for a touchdown and put the Giants up 7-0. The Redskins failed to answer on their next drive and the Giants continued to dominate, defeating the Redskins 16-7.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Joe Gibbs laid down the law to his players Monday, a day after the end of his worst season as an NFL coach. His message: Show up for every single offseason workout, meeting and practice - or else. "We can't afford to go through another year without making some real serious improvements," the Hall of Fame coach said. A few weeks ago, there were rumors that Gibbs, a 64-year-old diabetic, might step down because of health reasons. Instead, he appeared ready to shift into a higher gear, starting with a weeklong evaluation of every player on the roster in preparation for another big-spending round of free agency.

For some, Nov. 16, 2009, will be remembered as a day of infamy. For others, it will be just another day in the life of a mistaken debate. The reason for this mixed reaction was the refusal of the Supreme Court to accept the case in which Native Americans wished to bring a halt to the use of "Redskins" as a trademark. This same debate erupts periodically in Cleveland, a city that also has a team using an Indian as a symbol. There will be intense and sincere voices supporting both sides in what looks to be a never-ending clash of opinion.
by DAN SPEARS | June 4, 2002 SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - The Neshaminy baseball team was the feelgood story of the Pa. Class AAA State Tournament. The Redskins were the 15th seed out of District 1, but fought their way to their first state appearance since 1992. But in Monday's first-round game at Shippensburg Memorial Park, playoff-savvy Chambersburg broke their hearts with their bats and their backs with their defense. The Trojans spotted the Redskins a two-run lead early, then turned on the jets in all phases of the game for an 8-3 victory and advance to Thursday's state quarterfinals against Williamsport.

The Super Bowl is coming closer as Week 9 passes. Many teams are doing well, but a shocking game brings a team down. This will all be recorded in this football column, so don't look anywhere else! In Chicago, the Miami Dolphins took on the undefeated Bears. The Bears were beginning to look like the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went undefeated for an entire season. Bears quarterback Rex Grossman did not have a very successful game, completing only 18 of 42 passes for 210 yards. It was definitely not enough.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Nothing livens up a preseason game like a fake punt, especially if it works. Baltimore Ravens third-year safety Haruki Nakamura took a direct snap on fourth-and-6 and juked his way 51 yards -- all the way to the 1 -- in the second quarter to set up the only touchdown scored by either first-team offense in Saturday night's 23-3 win over the Washington Redskins. The trickery added entertainment value to a typical August game that lacked polish and gave both coaches plenty to work on before the regular season starts in three weeks.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) -- Donovan McNabb threw a touchdown pass in his Washington Redskins debut, Albert Haynesworth looked suitably motivated in his debut as a $100 million backup, and the new-look Buffalo Bills looked like the same old Buffalo Bills. McNabb went 5 for 8 for 58 yards in two series Friday night and hit first-year player Anthony Armstrong for a 4-yard touchdown in the Redskins' 42-17 win over the mistake-ridden Bills. It was a first-glimpse preseason game that shows Washington's new coach Mike Shanahan is quite a bit further along than Buffalo's new coach Chan Gailey.

It's Rex. By the proverbial nose of the football. Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan ended the suspense Monday and announced Rex Grossman as the starting quarterback, giving the nine-year veteran the nod over John Beck going into Sunday's season opener against the New York Giants. “I've got a lot of faith in both of them. It was very competitive all the way through,” Shanahan said. “I thought Rex won by an edge.” Grossman becomes the latest player to be given the chance to hold a position that has lacked stability essentially since the end of the glory days of the 1980s and early 1990s.
