Washington Redskins Move to 2-0 in the Preseason, Defeat Pittsburgh Steelers 24-13
August 20th, 2013 at 9:43 AM
The Washington Redskins return to FedEx Field this week and earned their second victory of the preseason over the Pittsburgh Steelers, 24-13. WHY THEY WON The first string defense was electric. It was a role reversal from last week where the Redskins couldn't stop the Titans rushing attack to save their lives.  Washington's...

Washington Redskins Defeat Tenneesee Titans 22-21 in Preseason Opener
August 9th, 2013 at 7:26 AM
The Washington Redskins opened the 2013 preseason with a gutsy 22-21 victory over the Tennessee Titans.  It wasn't easy, as the Redskins struggled against the Titans version of "slash and dash" in the running game, surrendering long touchdown runs to Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene.  However, the defense tightened up...

Robert Griffin III Leads Skins on Game Winning Drive: Redskins 24, Buccaneers 22
September 30th, 2012 at 11:02 PM
With one minute and forty two seconds left in the fourth, Robert Griffin III led the Washington Redskins 56 yards for the the game winning score. Billy Cundiff's 41 yard last second field goal narrowly slid inside the left post to finish off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was as nerve racking a...

Thoughts on Washington Redskins Loss to St. Louis Rams, 31-28
September 17th, 2012 at 2:40 PM
The Washington Redskins entered Sunday riding last week's victory over the Saints but stumbled in St. Louis, leaving fans shocked and confused. It was one of the stranger games in recent memory; awful refereeing, another blocked punt, and an impressive Rams offense. Sadly, the list of negatives continues throughout this post. And...

RGIII Out Duels Drew Brees in His NFL Debut; Redskins 40, Saints 32
September 10th, 2012 at 10:39 AM
What a memorable start to the 2012 season and Robert Griffin III's highly anticipated career. Expectations were high going into the game. By the end, they were raised to a whole another level as the Redskins' rookie out-dueled Drew Brees and the Saints explosive offense. Griffin led the Redskins on eight scoring drives, as the...

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...

Standouts from Washington Redskins 30-17 Win Over the Indianapolis Colts
August 27th, 2012 at 3:29 PM
The Washington Redskins won their week three match-up with the Indianapolis Colts, 30-17. From an outside perspective, the game was all about Robert Griffin III vs. Andrew luck--and rightfully so. But to Redskins fans there was so much more. With holes and question marks all through the roster, we're looking...

Washington Redskins Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda Beat the New England Patriots
December 12th, 2011 at 1:36 PM
The Washington Redskins are on the verge of becoming a good team. No more blow outs! Even though the New England Patriots had an unfair advantage — Rob Gronkowski. With the game on the line the Redskins failed to make "the play." Instead, they turned it over. And That wasn't the only time they beat themselves. This has been a pattern that's plagued the Redskins for...

For those of you who have never seen an episode of Star Trek, let me break down how we'll determine the studs and duds from the Washington Redskins 7-point loss to the New England Patriots.

Roy Helu and Rex Grossman Help Washington Redskins End the Losing Streak
November 28th, 2011 at 1:11 PM
 ***PHOTO1*** Great game, no doubt. Not often do the Washington Redskins play just good enough on both sides of the ball to win. Sadly, many aren't enjoying the 23-17 victory, because the Seattle Seahawks passed the Redskins in the quarterback sweepstakes (Also known as the 2012 Draft). Figuring they wouldn't finish the season without winning at least one more, this one came at the right time. Roy Helu and Rex Grossman led the...

ESPN 980: Washington Redskins’ Brian Orkapo “Puts Blame on Himself”
November 22nd, 2011 at 6:00 PM
Today, ESPN 980 had Brian Orakpo on their station and tweeted; "Brian Orakpo says he puts blame on himself for not finishing plays." That was clearly the case Sunday and I have a few pictures to help shed some light on the situation. The first two are of Brian Orakpo's near sacks, that he couldn't make happen. The...

Washington Redskins Vs Miami Dolphins: What Happened?
November 13th, 2011 at 6:50 PM
The Washington Redskins came into Miami on a four game losing streak, and left on a five. The Dolphins had just broken their streak of seven straight losses last week, dismantling the Kansas City Chiefs and now they look to have turned the corner, beating the Redskins 20-9. Coach Mike Shanahan started...

Washington Redskins Vs San Francisco 49ers: Defensive Review
November 8th, 2011 at 12:45 PM
The Washington Redskins defense had it's good and bad moments against the San Francisco 49ers. Through four home games, the Redskins are giving up an average of 18.5 points and Sunday they gave up 19. But don't put all of that on the defense... the offense is also responsible. John Beck...

Washington Redskins Vs San Francisco 49ers: Offensive Review
November 7th, 2011 at 2:04 PM
The game never seems to be as painful the second time around. A lot of Redskin's players played well. Costly mistakes prevented them from sustaining drives and turnovers lead to points for the opposition. In the end, the Redskins only managed 11 points; eight of them in garbage time. The...

Washington Redskins Record Setting Day Comes in a Loss
November 6th, 2011 at 4:23 PM
***PHOTO1*** Who would have guessed? The Washington Redskins set two team records against the San Francisco 49ers today; a 59 yard field goal from Graham Gano and a 14 reception performance from rookie Roy Helu. The Redskins struggled to move the ball consistently and beat they ended up beating themselves. The...

It’s a Fact: You Have to Score Points to Win, Redskins
October 30th, 2011 at 8:14 PM
In truly embarrassing fashion, the Washington Redskins lose 23-0 to the Buffalo Bills. Wow. The first shut out of Mike Shanahan's career. The Skins are not as close as many of us thought and it can't be placed on the defense. The quarterback position is chaotic. Can they bring Rex Grossman back......

Washington Redskins Unstoppable Front Seven Clashes with Buffalo Bills Immovable Offensive Line
October 27th, 2011 at 6:00 PM
Possibly the most important match-up of the week will be the one between the Washington Redskins front seven and the Buffalo Bills offensive line. The Redskins lead the league in sacks and Ryan Fitzpatrick is the least sacked quarterback in the league; setting up a true test for each team. ***PHOTO1*** Kudos to the Bills' offensive coordinator Chan...

Washington Redskins John Beck Plays Well Despite the Lack of Help
October 23rd, 2011 at 9:51 PM
Today was not the Washington Redskins best performance. The Carolina Panthers entered the game with a 1-5 record, but didn't play like an underdog (which technically they weren't - Vegas is good). The Panthers dominated, never trailing and eventually winning 33-20. The Redskins gave this game away, but there is a bright side;...

Washington Redskins Loss Doesn’t Look as Bad the Second Time: Review of Film
October 17th, 2011 at 12:40 PM
Wow, tough loss yesterday. Embarrassing and demoralizing... but only temporally. There is a lot to learn from this game and the sooner Mike Shanahan makes his quarterback decision the better (More to come on that this week). Regardless of who the quarterback is the Washington Redskins have the ability to finish...
