Washington-redskins
A team led by Rex Grossman and John Beck hardly warrants excitement. It doesn’t matter how good your defence is, your running game is, or any facet of your team is, if the guy that leads your team doesn’t inspire confidence, a team and its fanbase will decline. Fortunately for Redskins’ fans, excitement is just what the Redskins had in mind for 2012. Enter RG3. The second overall pick in April’s draft, Robert Griffin III brings speed, arm strength and agility to a position that has been begging to be filled since the days of Mark Brunell. Mike Shanahan now coaches a team fuelled by excitement. Excitement of what could possibly be achieved now that a true franchise quarterback resides in Washington. With a defence that finished 12th overall and some new offensive additions at the skill positions, the Redskins are ready to begin their transition. They are ready to begin winning. 2011 Record: 5-11 Head Coach: Mike Shanahan Off. Cord: Kyle Shanahan Def. Cord: Jim Haslett ...

Alfred Morris To Start Week 1? Week 3 Round Up and More

Could Alfred Morris wind up being the starter for Week 1? Well according to Chris Russell on Twitter, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan is certainly suggesting it.

Chris Cooley the latest big name to be cut

The Washington Redskins have cut tight end Chris Cooley today. After Cooley had just eight catches in five games last season, and with the continued emergence of Fred Davis, the cut isn't surprising by any means. That doesn't mean it's not a bittersweet moment for the Redskins and their fans. Cooley was a Pro Bowler for Washington in 2007 and 2008, and he had 33...

RG3 to the rescue for long-suffering Redskins

The huge burgundy flag with the word ''REDSKINS'' in gold letters towers over the front of the team's facility, dwarfing in both size and height the four U.S. flags that help frame the parking lot. The arrangement makes quite an impression, especially when viewed from the practice fields, and serves to help symbolize something that's been true for a long time...

Washington Redskins Cut Chris Cooley and Graham Gano; Sign Former Ravens' Kicker Billy Cundiff

The Washington Redskins made two surprised cuts a day after the roster had to be reduced to 75. The first was the announcement that Graham Gano didn't win the kicking competition with Neil Rackers. Instead he too received the boot and the team brought in Billy Cundiff, formally of the Baltimore Ravens. The Skins also released fan favorite, Chris Cooley, who shouldn't...

Redskins release Chris Cooley

Chris Cooley once said it would be terrible to play for another team just when the Washington Redskins were getting good again. He wanted to be a Redskins player for life.

Cooley wants to be...

Chris Cooley Released By Redskins

Washington tight end Chris Cooley was released on Tuesday.Fantasy Spin:Cooley was no longer a fantasy option due to injuries and the arrival of Fred Davis. He could still land a job somewhere in the NFL, but it's highly unlikely that he'll have any fantasy value.

Redskins 30, Buccaneers 3

On his first full day on the job as the kicker for the Washington Redskins, Billy Cundiff made three of four field goal attempts - and was booed for the one he missed - making him the only first-stringer to do something noteworthy in Wednesday night's 30-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cundiff, signed Tuesday after the Redskins cut Graham Gano, converted from 39, 27 and...
