Ten Thoughts on Washington Redskins 2012 Season; Includes Win-Loss Prediction
September 4th, 2012 at 7:14 PM
The Washington Redskins kick off their season this weekend, facing the New Orleans Saints. As of now, not a lot is expected of the Redskins--some doubt any growth at all--but they could easily be misled by seasons of the past. Who am I to judge? I have my own thoughts...

Washington Redskins Display Tremendous Depth in 30-3 Victory Over Bucs
August 30th, 2012 at 6:54 PM
The Redskins finished their preseason 3-1, after defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-3 on Wednesday night. Preseason wins normally hold little value--take the Lions' 4-0 to 0-16 debacle as an example--and starters don't even play in the fourth game usually. But this was an impressive win? Yes. For the first...

August 28th, 2012 at 6:03 PM

August 17th, 2012 at 5:27 PM
The Washington Redskins loaded up at wide receiver this offseason to usher in a new era of D.C. football. Many of these new receivers are fighting to make the team. Right now, Dezmon Briscoe is one of them. Currently outside of the top six receivers, what are his chances of making the...

Washington Redskins Wide Receiver Battles: Size Matters
August 14th, 2012 at 3:05 PM
The Washington Redskins have turned over most of the team since the arrivals of Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan. One of the major changes has taken place at wide receiver and it's beyond just bringing in new players; it's a new philosophy--which looks surprising like Green Bay's. In the last...

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...

June 21st, 2012 at 1:01 AM
***VIDEO1*** In more than a decade of offensive mediocrity, one of the few bright spots on offense has been tight end Chris Cooley. Cooley has endeared himself to the Redskins fan base at a time when the offense more or less consisted of three people; him, wide receiver Santana Moss, and...

March 15th, 2012 at 9:14 AM
***PHOTO1*** Last season when tight end Fred Davis began emerging as a stand-out at his position many Redskins fans started to wonder if Chris Cooley (who was battling a string of injuries) would be on the trading block during the season. In spite of Davis' play the Redskins decided to keep Chris...

Injuries to Washington Redskins Veteran’s Paying Off Through Rookies
December 14th, 2011 at 7:18 PM
Obvious to most, the Washington Redskins entered this season with their quarterback as their single greatest weakness. Then injuries set in, and things started to fall apart. But things are turning around! Not only are the Redskins in position to fill their greatest need, they have also seen major improvements from their rookies. Some have shown that they can be relied on next season (Roy Helu, Leonard Hankerson, maybe DeJon Gomes); other might ensure a future as...

October 11th, 2011 at 9:00 AM
Everybody in Washington remembers Carlos Rogers for his dropped interceptions. Hard not to when his name was normally mentioned in the same sentence as " And that's why they play defense."

October 7th, 2011 at 6:00 PM
One of our Twitter followers, @MicahNile, asked an intriguing question today; "What will our team look like in three years?" As an eternal optimistic, this could is a nice change of pace.

Washington Redskins Running Back Report and Thoughts
October 6th, 2011 at 12:26 PM
What's more important, fantasy numbers or victories? Like the Washington Redskins running back situation, people want to see the flashy numbers from one runner, while the most important fact is being ignored; the Redskins are best off using all three - regularly. They call this "a good problem." I don't think there is a...

Ex Washington Redskin Devin Thomas Holding Ill Feelings Towards the “Deadskins”
August 28th, 2011 at 12:58 PM
Devin Thomas was another Vinny Cerrato second round bust in most people's eyes. He definitely had the raw talent, but the new front office felt he wasn't focused on the game and so they cut him. After a short stint in Carolina (also cut) he found himself on the New York Giants...

A Look into the Washington Redskins’ Wide Receiver Bubble
August 23rd, 2011 at 10:32 AM
 ***PHOTO1*** Like last year, It appears the Washington Redskins will keep six wide receivers on their 53 man roster. Narrowing down to those final six has never been more difficult.

August 22nd, 2011 at 11:56 AM
 ***PHOTO1*** Here is my first look at the Washington Redskins 53 man roster. Half way through the pre-season, the team is starting to shape up and it's much easier to see who is doing well. We also have a better feel for player's injuries, including the ones for those on the bubble...
