Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

RG3 throws for four touchdown passes in beating a Michael Vick-less Philadelphia Eagles


HOLDING OFF ELIMINATION, the Washington Redskins are making one last push. Robert Griffin III threw for four touchdown passes in a 31-6 crushing of the floundering Philadelphia Eagles. RG3 threw TD passes of 6, 49, 61 (see that strike to Santana Moss?), and 17 yards to keep their flickering hopes of a playoff spot alive. Next up: the 5-5 Dallas Cowboys. Photo is RG3 stiff arming the Eagles' Jason Babin. Griffin also ran for 84 yards on 12 carries. There's your franchise QB, Washington. Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty.

In the meantime, the Atlanta Falcons and the Houston Texans are both 9-1 in their respective divisions; the best in the NFL so far.
