Robert Griffin III and the NFL Rookie of the Year Watch
January 2nd, 2013 at 11:57 AM
***PHOTO1*** If you follow enough Redskins' fans on Twitter you probably already have seen the amount of tweets debating the NFL Rookie of the Year mostly between Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, with the occasional Russell Wilson sprinkling. Before I get into any kind of debate here I'd like to...

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? ...

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...

***PHOTO1*** In January of 2008  Joe Gibbs retired for the second time as head coach of the Washington Redskins.  The 2007-08 season was a tumultuous one which saw the Redskins yo-yo in and out of play-off contentions all season long and then in the second half of the season saw the...

Why Being a Washington Redskin Fan This Time of the Year Stinks
February 9th, 2012 at 2:09 PM
***PHOTO1*** This happens to me every year in the week following the Super Bowl.  In my mind I replay every single game of the Washington Redskins in my head and every year I think well if we had this type of player we could have won this game or that game...

Washington Redskins Fan Base Fractures in the Debate Over Robert Griffin III
January 11th, 2012 at 5:34 PM
***PHOTO1*** As hard as it is to be a Washington Redskins fan, it must be even harder if you've been a fan since the Redskins heyday of the 1980's. Those fans have not seen a legitimate Super Bowl run since Mark Rypien's magical 1991 season. In that time span, it seems...

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.

***PHOTO1*** The Washington Redskins finished the season on Sunday with a 34-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, ending with a 5-11 record,  a last place finish in the NFC East, the 6th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and no hole bigger than the one at quarterback. Redskins quarterbacks Rex...

One Last Word on Peyton Manning to the Redskins
December 9th, 2011 at 10:08 AM
***PHOTO1*** In all lines of business there are safe assumptions that can be made.  In the automotive world it's safe to assume the most affordable and reliable cars come from Japan, in government it's safe to assume that spending will be out of control and in the NFL if there is...

November 15th, 2011 at 12:36 PM

The Quarterback is Indeed the Most Important Position on the Field
November 2nd, 2011 at 9:41 AM
***PHOTO1*** During the off-season I scoffed at all the of "so-called" expert that ridiculed the Redskins for not having a real quarterback on the roster.  I argued that the 1985 Bears and the 2000 Baltimore Ravens didn't either.  Those teams were defined by their defenses and they both won the Super Bowl...
