Washington’s recipe for winning not fancy, but plenty tasty

After winning for just the third time in nine visits to MetLife Stadium, after tightening its grip on the NFC East, after constructing the rare three-game winning streak under Gruden, Washington gets an “A” for its 20-13 victory against the hapless Giants. → Read More

Go for two, play to win and don't apologize: The odds are on your side

For years, we’ve criticized coaches for being too conservative, too risk averse. We’ve advocated that they “go for it” more frequently, whether “it” is a fourth-down conversion or double points after a touchdown. But deep down, many of us are scared. The consequences of failure make us quiver, even though the only thing riding on the outcome for us is emotion. → Read More

SNYDER: Closing time gets more comfortable for Washington's defense

After beating Carolina last week, Washington cornerback Josh Norman noted that the home team started the game on defense and ended the game on defense. “That’s what you want,” he said. Maybe that’s what HE wants. I think most fans would prefer a series of kneel downs from Alex Smith in victory formation. → Read More

Gruden needs more up his sleeve than Peterson

Who needs drive, ingenuity and coaching creativity, when you can trade those in for the luxury of handing off to an age-defying runner who’s turning back the clock? → Read More

Wizards see hopes rise with door cracked open in East

At least LeBron James isn’t blocking upward mobility back here anymore. That’s good news for all parties involved. The Wizards aren’t among the favorites to replace the Cavaliers, but at least the stone wall has become a cracked door. → Read More

Tommie Smith, John Carlos protests over social issues still resonate a half-century later

It’s a lesson worth learning, especially now, as some of the same issues still resonate. A half-century before Colin Kaepernick took a knee and put his NFL career on the line, Smith and Carlos raised their fists and put the world on notice. → Read More

SNYDER: Washington's timing just right to overcome adversity

For most teams, overcoming adversity means conquering troublesome circumstances and bouncing back after heartbreaking defeats. But in Washington, overcoming adversity means riding out good times and preventing victories from bringing you down. → Read More

Jay Gruden era sees its clock ticking

It appears that Jay Gruden’s tenure in Washington won’t end well. At least he’ll have plenty of company to commiserate with. → Read More

You call it a brawl, UFC just calls it marketing

There are two schools of thought about the fracas that ensued following UFC 229’s main event Saturday night in Las Vegas. → Read More

SNYDER: NCAA's policies on amateurism should be the real federal fraud case

Here we are, forced to endure the charade as federal prosecutors put recruiting tactics on trial in New York, where the first of three cases off an FBI probe of college basketball’s so-called underbelly has begun. But the real fraud is wasting our tax money on what’s essentially a matter between the NCAA and its member institutions. → Read More

Bryce Harper's, Le'Veon Bell's next contracts keep us guessing

Why the Nationals should overpay Bryce Harper and why strangers care about Le’Veon Bell’s contract are two of the many things in sports that are tough to figure out right now. → Read More

Safety concerns eat at football from top to bottom

Roughing-the-passer penalties have more than doubled though three weeks compared to last season (34-16). The controversy is dominating discussions about the league in derogatory fashion. Meanwhile, at the youth level, where there can’t be too much safety talk, participation continues its drop. → Read More

Tiger Woods still worthy of emulation, admiration

Neither marketing executives, pro golfers nor golf fans, imagined Woods would go through everything he’s endured to wind up again in the winner’s circle at age 42 after a five-year drought. None of us is Tiger Woods. And I’m not sure, notwithstanding his fortune, we’d want to be. → Read More

SNYDER: Washington's offense shows just how dangerous it could be

Coach Jay Gruden and quarterback Alex Smith assured us that the unit is capable of more than intermediate strikes. They said the lack of downfield passing and the wideouts’ MIA status was a function of the defenses, not Washington’s philosophical approach. Trust us, they said. More is coming. They didn’t waste time making good on their word. → Read More

Protect the QBs, sure, but this is ridiculous

Once again, the NFL has demonstrated its uncanny inability to find the sweet spot between extremes. On some of the most pressing issues the league faces, its judgment either caroms off the left pole or ricochets off the right one, as if splitting uprights is equivalent to splitting atoms. → Read More

Vontae Davis retiring from Bills at halftime just makes him look like a sore loser

Play football and enter halftime with your team trailing, 28-6? Uh, no, that is NOT the time to announce you’re done. → Read More

SNYDER: Week 2 like Week 1 will not define season

Why oh why do we fall for the fake-out every single time? We’re like Charlie Brown, believing we’ll finally enjoy a chance to kick the football, only to fall flat on our back as Lucy pulls it away. → Read More
