Washington Redskins Fans, Help Lorenzo Alexander Get to the Pro Bowl
December 12th, 2011 at 9:36 AM
***PHOTO1*** Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a big supporter of fans voting for the Pro Bowl (or any All-Star game for that matter) because it makes the selection process more a popularity contest than an actual honor for the players who attend.  Every year several players who deserve to...

August 12th, 2011 at 12:40 PM
***PHOTO1*** Redskins fans, our time has come. Time to party, cheer, celebrate, and have fun.

Washington Redskins’ Defensive End Position Battle: Jarvis Jenkins or Adam Carriker
August 8th, 2011 at 3:47 PM
This was a battle that not many saw coming...not this early at least. I have always seen him as a starter by the end of the year, but that was before the Redskins signed Stephen Bowen. There very well could be an open competition between all three candidates (Including Carriker), but I think Bowen...

June 22nd, 2011 at 1:59 PM
The newly drafted big man, Jarvis Jenkins, is the only rookie who hasn't been able to attend one of the three players-only camps. I recently ripped into Albert Haynesworth for being a no-show, but I don't need to make excuses for Jarvis Jenkins, he's already done that sufficiently. The Washington Redskin is working hard away from...
