Washington Redskins One Year Later: Looking Back on the RGIII Trade
April 11th, 2013 at 10:25 AM
This past Monday Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Dispatch wrote a wonderful article about the trade between the Redskins and the Rams that sent the Skins' first and second round pick of the 2012 draft along with first round picks for 2013 and 2014 over to the Rams in...

Calm Down with All the Kirk Cousins Trade Talk
December 18th, 2012 at 11:15 AM
Last Sunday when Kirk Cousins took the field against the Cleveland Browns I wasn't shocked by his play on the field.  The kid was a stand out for Michgan State and was highly touted in the draft by many analysts and teams.  In fact the only thing surprising to me...

Believe It or not Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen Might Know What They’re Doing
September 19th, 2012 at 9:05 AM
***PHOTO1*** I'm not quite sure when it happened but at some point in the last 15 years or so Redskins' fans began to question everything the front office did.  Coaching moves, players moves, and what lawn service Fed Ex Field was using. No matter the move there was usually a vocal...

What are Alfred Morris’s Chances of Making the Washington Redskins 53-Man Roster?
August 4th, 2012 at 7:33 PM
There's an open competition at Redskins' Park that has everyone's attention in Washington, and that's at running back. Three backs have returned from last season and all three are expected to make the roster. So, how about Alfred Morris? ***PHOTO1*** Morris was originally practice squad destined...and for a sixth round pick, it's...

Robert Griffin III Remains Unsigned; Misses First Day of Redskins’ Rookie Camp
July 16th, 2012 at 5:34 PM
The Washington Redskins and Robert Griffin III have yet to seal the deal. Until he does sign his contract, he'll be unable to report to rookie camp or participate in full activities--which start the 26th.  As reported from numerous sources over the weekend, the holdup is largely due to language within the...

How Many Rookies Make the Washington Redskins’ 53-Man Roster?
July 11th, 2012 at 2:32 PM
The Washington Redskins signed all twelve of their 2011 draft picks to the 53-man roster at some time, last season. This year they drafted just nine players--for the luxury of Robert Griffin III--and all nine won't be so fortunate to make the team. Head coach, Mike Shanahan has finally added enough talent and depth to the...

Washington Redskins 2012 Offseason: the Last Rebuild
July 10th, 2012 at 2:06 PM
Since Mike Shanahan became the Redskins Head Coach, the word "rebuild" has been thrown out non-stop. Sometimes the organization would say they're not rebuilding (and the McNabb signing was supposed to be proof, ha). More recently they have toned down their anti-rebuild rhetoric and accepted what the fans have seen...

May 18th, 2012 at 8:45 AM
***PHOTO1*** Other than a consistent winning tradition and a franchise quarterback the Washington Redskins have been starved for a positive national presence.  Two of those three changed last night as the number two overall draft pick, quarterback, Robert Griffin III appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  Not since Joe Theisman...

Undrafted Free Agent Lance Lewis Could Be Washington Redskins Big Surprise in 2012
May 13th, 2012 at 3:47 PM
While catching up with the Redskins’ free agent signings, I came across an interesting prospect: Lance Lewis, a six foot, 208 pound wide receiver out of ECU. Signed as an undrafted rookie, Lewis will has an uphill battle ahead of him; fighting with Santana Moss, Anthony Armstrong, Niles Paul (unless...

Robert Griffin III and Incoming Free Agents Bring Balance to the Washington Redskins
May 7th, 2012 at 4:48 PM
Since 2008, the Washington Redskins have failed to gain more yards or score more points over a season than their opponents. Now, Robert Griffin III and a pair of free agent receivers will do their best to bring balance back to the Nation's Capital. At the beginning of free agency, the...

Redskins Offensive Line No Longer a Question Mark, “Question Mark?”
May 1st, 2012 at 1:20 PM
After selecting three offensive linemen in this year's NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins should no longer have depth concerns. But does that mean that their O-line is set moving forward? It certainly doesn't appear to be the "line of the future" yet; not with Jamal Brown at tackle and injury/penalty concerns still about. But maybe after a few seasons, some players will blossom into Pro...

Washinton Redskins’ Hasty Post Draft Impressions; Why Be Sexy When You Can Be Confident
April 29th, 2012 at 11:09 PM
***PHOTO1*** Another draft has come and gone, and the Redskins reeled in a nine player draft class. So here are my hasty, not well put together thoughts on the 2012 Washington Redskins Draft Class. It maybe not be the sexiest draft class in the world, but how good did that work...

Washington Redskins’ Hasty First Round Draft Impressions; Basically, Holy Crap.
April 27th, 2012 at 12:35 AM
***PHOTO1***   First, a bit of gloating; when I mocked the draft, I correctly guessed one and two (before the Redskins traded up), guessed Matt Kalil at number 4, Blackmon to the Jags after the Jags traded up. I therefore proclaim myself awesome. And say Josh isn't. Because, you know...it matters. Ish. I'll...

And with the Number Two Overall Pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Washington Redskins Select…
April 26th, 2012 at 8:13 PM
***PHOTO1*** ...Robert Griffin III.  Not that this was a surprise to anyone but it's nice to have him officially in burgundy and gold. If Twitter is any indication the Super Bowl talk will start in 3...2...1... However, I'd like to caution fans to show restraint, I mean, after all he's a rookie and all...

The folks at Bleacher Report were able to meet with Robert Griffin III recently, for a two minute, exclusive interview toward their draft series: NFL Draft 365. In it, RGIII talks about the Griffin vs. Luck hype, his new deal with Adidas, how he manages pressures both on and off the field. ***VIDEO1*** Some people like the drama of the NFL Draft...not us here at Redskins 101.

Jim Irsay, Thanks for Ruining My Draft Day Fun
April 23rd, 2012 at 10:42 AM
***PHOTO1***  Granted, it was pretty much a lock since Peyton Manning got hurt that the Indianapolis Colts were going to draft Standford quarterback Andrew Luck. However, Colts' owner Jim Irsay began a Twitter love affair with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.  This got many Redskin fans panicking that the Colts may take...

How Do the Madieu Williams and James Lee Signings Affect the Washington Redskins Draft Plan?
April 11th, 2012 at 5:59 PM
The Washington Redskins announced the Madieu Williams signing today. Before this week, safety and offensive tackle were two of the few glaring holes remaining on this team. Now, with the signing of James Lee and Madieu Williams the Redskins can expand their draft options. ***PHOTO1*** In both positions there is now some...
