Clearly, the blocking schemes need to be reassessed this week after the Redskins pass protection yielded nine sacks yesterday. The Redskins have lost three of their best blockers in Kory Lichtensteiger, Tim Hightower and Chris Cooley, and the absence of left tackle Trent Williams was felt especially hard yesterday.
But Beck didn’t accept any ready-made excuses, and said that they team needs to adjust and get better.
“That’s just part of the NFL,” he said. ”Because it’s a long season, injuries do happen. The good teams find a way to win, regardless of who steps in. That’s our plan: to be the good team. That’s our plan, to just continually get better so we can insert whoever’s next up, and continue to play well.”
As the Redskins finally come home to take on the 49ers, Beck said his team was aware of the process that it would take to reverse the results of recent weeks.
“You never wanna lose a game, and you never wanna lose back-to-back games, and so forth,” he said.

If you need a Redskins pick-me-up on this dreary Monday, you can look forward to Tuesday, when DeAngelo Hall’s line of “Hail Yeah I Hate Dallas” silicone wristbands will go on sale at his Web site, DeAngeloHall.com. The cost is $3.99 per, and the release we received said “partial proceeds of sales” will benefit the D.C. Central Kitchen.

Earlier this month, I pointed out that the Redskins were 3-1 for the eighth time in 16 years. That was weird.
Well, the winning record is gone. Three straight losses have dropped the Redskins’ record to 3-4. Of the seven aforementioned 3-1 starts, only one of them was followed by three straight losses and a 3-4 record. That would be the second Spurrier campaign, in which the...
The Washington Redskins offense, with a full roster in Week One of the regular season wasn’t considered exactly formidable, but after the past few weeks, the Redskins roster has taken a series of body blows, losing players at an alarming rate. WR Santana Moss has been lost for multiple weeks, RB Tim Hightower is lost for the rest of the season and TE Chris Cooley is...
A recent post by Dr. Aaron of “Joe Sports Fan” blog captured our attention, because it discusses almost everything you’d ever want to know about Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker.
Carriker is having a beastly start to 2011, already accumulating more sacks (4.5) than he had in his career combined (3.5). He is also on track to break his season-high in tackles,...
Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher is active and starting against the Buffalo Bills.
Fletcher is playing in his 215th consecutive NFL game - and making his 170th straight start - despite being hampered by a hamstring injury sustained in last week's loss to Carolina. Fletcher came in as questionable after not practicing Wednesday, and being limited Thursday and Friday...

This is a rather magnificent piece of work by Redskins-Panthers Predictions winner Mathew Brown. Press play and read on.
John Beck is the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, and the Redskins have the most hopeless roster in the NFL.
This shouldn’t be news to anyone watching the Redskins play over the last two and a half weeks, but I know there are stupid fans out there right...
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has been in the NFL for a lot of years. He ran the Denver Broncos' offense from 1984 through 1987, served as the Los Angeles Raiders' head coach for an ill-advised season-and-a-half before heading back to Denver in 1991. From 1992 through 1994, he helped put together the offense that made Steve Young a repeat MVP candidate and...
The Bills' once porous defense had nine sacks and two interceptions to batter the already
injury-riddled Washington Redskins 23-0 on Sunday.
1-Simply put: this was one of the most embarrassing losses for this franchise in years. The Bills are a decent team, but not a great team, and they manhandled the skins in just about every phase of the game. I realize that the skins were missing some important pieces due to injury(and others weren’t at 100%), but where’s the heart on this team? Where’s the pride? Where’s...
