Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather, although he has somewhat of a history of questionable hits, will not be suspended by the league, reports according to ESPN. In the case of Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson, who has a little bit more of a history of penalties than Meriweather, the NFL is supending him for one game following his helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless player, Saints running back Darren Sproles.

Pierre Garcon: “Robert Griffin III not the Same With Knee Brace”

There is no denying that Robert Griffin III hasn’t looked himself in the Redskins first two games despite putting up decent numbers. Receiver Pierre Garcon took it one step further telling ESPN 980 that there’s no way Griffin can be the same player as long as he’s wearing a knee brace. “Robert obviously can’t run [...]

Washington Redskins: Defense is biggest concern

Another frustrating defeat left the Washington Redskins with a feeling of disgust after a 38-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers this Sunday afternoon. The Packers moved the ball at will from start to finish, a sight all to familiar to the Redskins faithful. The secondary got picked apart and the defensive line and linebackers were pushed around. Leaving Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett...

Tony Dungy thinks Kirk Cousins would give Redskins better chance to win

The Washington Redskins have fared so poorly in their first two games of the season that people are legitimately questioning whether the team would be better off playing Kirk Cousins at quarterback since Robert Griffin III is nowhere near 100 percent healthy.

Shanahan: Redskins' start is 'temporary setback'

Mike Shanahan says the Washington Redskins' poor start is a ''temporary setback'' and that he has no plans to sit Robert Griffin III. Griffin says maybe he needs to be more of a ''stern leader.''

Redskins Wide Receiver Pierre Garcon Says Robert Griffin III ‘Can’t Run as Fast’ This Year Because of Knee Brace

After storming out to a successful rookie campaign in 2012, Robert Griffin III has struggled mightily in the first two weeks of the 2013 season, and the Redskins have suffered, falling 0-2. RGIII was held out of game action during the preseason, but one of his teammate’s doesn’t believe that a little bit of rust is to blame for the sluggish start from his signal caller. Instead...

Brandon Meriweather is Still a Punk

In case you missed it, former Patriots first round pick Brandon Meriweather proved once again yesterday just how dirty (and stupid) of a player he is. The Redskins safety, who played Sunday in only his second game since signing a 2 year, $6 million contract in 2012, made headlines early in the day when his lick on Eddie Lacy took the Packers rookie running back out with a concussion...

Washington Redskins players have been advised not to speak about the “Redskins” controversy

The debate about whether or not the Washington Redskins should find another something else to call themselves other than Redskins grows with each passing week. On one side of this debate, there are those that oppose the use of the name “Redskins” because of its insensitivity to Native Americans. This group includes many media members that have vowed to no longer refer to the...

Pierre Garcon: Robert Griffin III is slowed down by his knee brace

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is still trying to shake off the rust in the wake of his second major knee surgery. Through the first two weeks of the season, he has been horrible.

Josh Morgan’s mom was at the Navy Yard

Redskins in freefall. Rams start eyeing #1 Draft pick in 2014

Redskins performance is confusing to their fans, like this guy in the Kerrigan jersey and cheesehead celebrating a Packers touchdown. For Redskins fans, it's like a really bad hangover.  Somehow the Redskins went from the NFC East favorites to becoming the worst team in the NFL in a matter of two games. In a nutshell, the Eagles exposed the Redskins weaknesses they have...

Garcon: ‘Can’t Run as Fast as He Did Last Year Because of His Knee Brace’

RG3 was a big fantasy risk coming into the season, but his upside is top 5, so he became a nice calculated risk.  He hasn’t looked good through the first two games, with bad footwork and technique.  He has still got it done in the box score, but most, if not all of his production has come in garbage time.  This is not bad from a fantasy perspective as we saw with last years’...
