Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins Should Know When to Pull the Trigger and Go All In
July 9th, 2013 at 8:24 AM
As Coach Shanahan sits at the poker table, he looks to avoid the pistol’s ricochet to cash in on Washington’s young guns. The Washington Redskins nabbed a prized rookie on the flop of last year’s NFL Draft in the person of Robert Griffin III. Coming in as the 2nd pick, the...

National Media Blasts the Redskins Over Rushing RGIII Back, but They Give a Pass to the Pats with Gronk
April 8th, 2013 at 10:23 AM
***PHOTO1*** During last season's first round playoff loss, all the national media could talk about was how the Washington Redskins and head coach Mike Shanahan rushed quarterback Robert Griffin III back before he was ready.  What has gotten very little media scrutiny has been the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick's treatment ...

The Season Ends on a Whimper and Fan Debate Rages About RG3
January 7th, 2013 at 9:54 AM
Yesterday the Redskins came out firing on all cylinders and it looked like it was going to be a route.  Going up 14-0 early in the first quarter it seemed like nothing could go wrong for the Burgundy and Gold.  However the first quarter would end and so would the...

Enough is Enough Redskin Fans, We Knew What Kind of Team We Had Going into This Season
November 5th, 2012 at 11:56 AM
***PHOTO1***  Yesterday during the lack luster Washington Redskins vs. Carolina Panthers game I had to close Twitter down.  Yes the team, especially the defense played poorly, but the fan reaction was getting ridiculous.  All the complaining about defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has reached the heights of ridiculousness.  Is our defense terrible? ...

NFL Ref Lockout: It’s Going to Get a Lot Worse Before It Gets Better
September 25th, 2012 at 9:54 AM
Last week  after watching the NFL's replacement refs decide the Redskins vs. St. Louis game (author's note, not that the Redskins would have won with the regular refs but it would have been an entirely different game) I thought that it could get much worse.  Well ladies and gentlemen I...

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...

The Redskins at St. Louis is an Extreme Example of the NFL Needing to Bring Back the Regular Officials
September 18th, 2012 at 9:51 AM
***PHOTO1*** Unlike some folks out there I'm not going to blame the Redskins 31-28 loss to the Rams on the officials.  The officiating on both sides was horrendous.  However, I will say the outcome would have been completely different had the regular NFL Refs were overseeing this game. For one thing...

What Does the Big Win in the Big Easy Mean for the Washington Redskins?
September 12th, 2012 at 10:13 AM
***PHOTO1*** Even though I picked the New Orleans Saints to win this one I was right about something.  I said, unlike many so-called experts, that the Washington Redskins could win this game and if they won the turnover battle they'd win the game.  Well guess who won the turnover battle. ...

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 16th, 2012 at 3:53 PM
In an interview with ESPN 980, The Sports Fix, Mike Shanahan confirmed that Niles Paul was transitioning to tight end and that he reminded him of Shannon Sharpe. ***PHOTO1*** He gives you a chance to have a difference maker at the tight end position I hate to compare anybody to a hall of fame...

Should Washington Redskins Fans Worry About Bounty Suspensions?
May 2nd, 2012 at 2:01 PM
Taking a look back at the immense damage done to the New Orleans Saints organization, many worry that the NFL will turn to the Washington Redskins next. Gregg Williams, under Sean Payton, was the one responsible for implementing the program in the Big Easy and it's not only believed, but...
