There was some doubt regarding the Washington Redskins ability to resign free agent Tyler Polumbus this off-season with the cap situation playing out the way it has.  However, Polumbus put those rumors to bed on Twitter early Monday afternoon. Well Jacksonville was tempting...but I couldn't leave these Coaches and Teammates. 2...

Washington Redskins: Take Aways from Last Night’s Win in Buffalo
August 10th, 2012 at 11:16 AM
***PHOTO1*** I just want to start out by saying, "damn I'm good at predicting things."  In article yesterday about what to watch for in the preseason opener I pointed out a few players and positions to watch and boy did those things shine through last night. The good news is that...

Washington Redskins Broken Offensive Line Gets Their First Real Test Thursday
August 8th, 2012 at 6:22 PM
The Redskins have suffered a few setbacks this year, already—mostly on the offensive line. Down three starters for tomorrow's pre-season debut, the biggest test for Washington will be to protect Robert Griffin III in his first games as a pro and it won't be easy. Jammal Brown was the first lineman down....

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...

January 3rd, 2012 at 8:31 PM
***PHOTO1*** The Washington Redskins will select sixth in the 2012 NFL Draft, a draft position that has more than a few fans nervous. While it's almost certain that two top flight quarterbacks---Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin III---are coming out, the worry is that several teams will try to leap...

If the Washingtons Redskins Don’t Draft a Quarterback First Round – Then Who?
December 22nd, 2011 at 12:15 PM
Today Matt Barkley will announce whether he enters the NFL Draft of staying at USC for another year. Hypothetically, let's say he stays at USC, then what? We know Andrew Luck will be the top pick and with another win (or two) the Redskins will surely be out of position to grab Robert Griffin III (also hasn't declared). If the Redskins don't draft...

Mike Shanahan on Starting Left Tackle: “It’s Kind of a Surprise Again”
December 16th, 2011 at 2:58 PM
 ***PHOTO1***  Mike Shanahan wouldn't announce a starter at left tackle today - "it's kind of a Surprise Again. Both Willie Smith and Sean Locklear are competing for the job for the second straight week. Last week Locklear got the start, but it was Willie Smith who finished the game. Willie Smith played well  after the sack/fumble/touchdown. Yes, Smith should have done a better job, but Rex Grossman also knows better than...

Without a Trade, Questions Still Remain for the Washington Redskins’ Offensive Line
October 19th, 2011 at 11:21 AM
 ***PHOTO1*** The Washington Redskins didn't make any offensive line moves before the deadline, even though they lost two starters last Sunday. This shouldn't come as a big surprise, but Shanahan thinks they will be fine. He was happy with Erik Cook's play, who wasn't even supposed to play (calf injury...

June 3rd, 2011 at 4:39 PM
Started with the D-Line and they look like a great base for the Defense. Now the focus will switch to our offensive base, The O-line. This would have to be one of the weaker sections of the team but it is also one of the most important. Probably a few...
