The last time Washington awoke to a day like this, it was Jan. 8, 2000. The New Hampshire primaries were a month off. The nation had somehow survived Y2K. And people were wondering whether Brad Johnson’s arm was tiring.
Not since that day have the Redskins hosted a playoff game. This afternoon, that 13-year wait ends. We have you covered for Seahawks-Redskins. Cindy Boren and I will have discussion points here all through the game. Cindy will help you through the early, AFC game — Colts at Ravens, which has its own storylines. At stake for Seattle and Washington: A trip to Atlanta next weekend for an NFC divisional playoff.
And for your reading pleasure, a bevy of choices. Don’t miss any of them.
Wonder how the Redskins organization has operated differently this year? Read Mark Maske’s look at Dan Snyder.
Wonder how the Redskins offense has operated differently? Read Kent Babb’s look at how one play symbolizes the options at the disposal of Robert Griffin III and Kyle Shanahan.
Wonder about the background of the opposing quarterback? Read Rick Maese on Richmond’s Russell Wilson.
And so much more: Mike Wise on London Fletcher. Mike Jones on Rex Grossman. If you’re headed to FedEx Field, take the advice of the Capital Weather Gang. Afterward, don’t forget to grade RGIII’s performance.
But whatever you read and however you watch, have fun. These days don’t seem to happen but every dozen years around here.
