Washington Redskins Likely to Pass on Using Franchise Tag
February 18th, 2013 at 11:32 AM
The NFL's two-week window for teams to use the franchise tag on a designated player opens today.  It's unlikely the Washington Redskins will take advantage this offseason.

Can the Washington Redskins Overcome Their Injuries?
October 23rd, 2012 at 4:11 PM
Last week's high is over. A brand new week of gloom is setting in. The Washington Redskins put forward a valiant effort Sunday, but it wasn't enough. Why not? Was it really one play were talking about, or does that just make a pretty target for us? It's hard to...

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.

Washington Redskins’ Friday Practice; Notes and a New Tradition
July 27th, 2012 at 8:44 PM
Here's we learned from the Washington Redskins' second day of open practices: The Skins are going to move receivers around the "depth chart," probably often. Yesterday, Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan were the starting two. Today, Leonard Hankerson was playing opposite Garcon, as the starting duo. Those two have made the...

July 13th, 2012 at 2:36 PM
Fred Davis was certainty a breakout player for the Washington Redskins a year ago; his receptions and yards almost tripled from the previous year—netting him 59 for 796, respectively. It doesn't look like he'll have the room to take the next step this year, but here are a few Redskins who might. ***PHOTO1***...

High Expectations for Redskins’ Tight Ends in 2012
July 9th, 2012 at 5:08 PM
The Washington Redskins are not clearly most talented team within their division, at any position. But some Redskins, more than others, will carry extremely high expectations into the 2012 season; including all the tight ends. Fred Davis, Chris Cooley and Niles Paul will each play a key role. ***PHOTO1*** Chris Cooley and...

Chris Cooley’s Spot on the Washington Redskins’ Roster Grows More and More Precarious
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...

May 16th, 2012 at 3:53 PM
In an interview with ESPN 980, The Sports Fix, Mike Shanahan confirmed that Niles Paul was transitioning to tight end and that he reminded him of Shannon Sharpe. ***PHOTO1*** He gives you a chance to have a difference maker at the tight end position I hate to compare anybody to a hall of fame...

Chris Cooley a Possible Cap Casualty?
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.

***PHOTO1*** When the disappointing 2011 season concludes the Washington Redskins will obviously be thinking about who will be the quarterback next season.  However, they can't be so focused on a quarterback they forget about key pieces to the Redskin family.

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 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...

Washington Redskins Tight End Fred Davis Quietly Becoming the Featured Player at the Position
September 21st, 2011 at 6:30 PM
   ***PHOTO1*** Fred Davis is quietly becoming the number one tight end on the Washington Redskins depth chart. It is rather obvious that Davis will eventually assume the role of the "number one" tight end‚ the only question is when will it become official? Fred Davis was drafted in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft...

Two Washington Redskin Recievers We Shouldn’t Forget About: Cooley and Davis
May 26th, 2011 at 5:58 PM
The Washington Redskins are definately short at reciever right now. Santana Moss is a Free Agent and Anthony Armstrong is leading WR workouts this off season. Even if Santana Moss leaves the Redskins still have two pro-bowl caliber guys catching: Chris Cooley and Fred Davis. Some how people failed to...
