December 31st, 2012 at 1:30 PM
I can't remember a time in my life where I was more nervous for a Redskins' game then I was last night.  History has told us that when the division or conference is on the line between the Redskins and Cowboys the Redskins win.  However, recent history has told us...

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...

December 17th, 2012 at 11:17 AM
***PHOTO1*** First and foremost before I get into everything Redskins from yesterday I'd like to wish Redskins101's webmaster Justin Fiore a happy 87th birthday.  Sure he looks young in his photo on the website but I assure you he's an old man. Ok, on to the task at hand and all...

***PHOTO1*** Good Friday afternoon loyal reader sorry I've been away for a little bit but I'm back with avengeance.  While I was away it seems a lot has happened in the Redskins' world. First and foremost, how about that win this past Sunday over the Ravens.  It wasn't pretty but neither...

It Took a Little Longer Then Expected but the Winds of Change are Sweeping Through Washington D.C.
December 4th, 2012 at 9:16 AM
***PHOTO1***  Before last nights 17-16 win over the hated New York Giants, ESPN reported about Giant's co-owner John Mara and his involvement in stripping the Washington Redskins of $36 million in salary cap space.  ESPN's Adam Schefter even reported that the Redskins were using some of Mara's comments as bulletin board...

November 28th, 2012 at 9:48 AM
***PHOTO1*** Thanksgiving has always been one of my all-time favorite holidays.  You get together with your family, have a big meal, and there is no pressure of gift giving.  As long as you helped cook something or washed a dish or two everyone is happy with you. Usually my Thanksgivings are...

The Worst Thing That Could Possibly Happen for the Redskins in the Eagles Vs. Cowboys Happened
November 13th, 2012 at 9:42 AM

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? ...

Redskins 101 Week Seven Game Ball
October 23rd, 2012 at 8:14 AM
I am not a man who believes in moral victories when it comes to sports.  The beautiful thing about sports is it's clear cut, you either win or you lose. With that said, however, I can pull one huge positive out of Sunday's loss to the New York Giants, and that...

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...

Washington Redskins: Take Aways from Last Night’s Win in Buffalo
August 10th, 2012 at 11:16 AM

July 25th, 2012 at 8:42 AM
Today is the day Redskins' fans.  Skins' veterans report to training camp today.  Sure they're only there to have physicals done but they're there and tomorrow the fun begins. It's been a long, but exciting off-season and Coach Mike Shannahan has some new toys to play with on the offensive side...

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...

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...
