  Click to view slideshow. As the 2011 regular season draws to a close, we once again turn to ESPN NFC-East blogger Dan Graziano for a look at which Redskins are the best at their position in the division. While I have lobbied for certain players throughout the season, I do defer to Graziano for a more global perspective on the division.  I don’t have to agree, but it’s not my list. After reaching a high-water mark of eight Redskins on the bye week edition of this list, the Redskins have sunken to as low as five in some weeks, and six in most others.  However, through sustained effort and great individual performance, the Redskins have again risen to eight honorees on the final list of the season. This was the most by any team in the NFC East, as the Cowboys had seven, the Giants had six, and the Eagles had six of the 27 honors. These is the complete list of Redskins on the ESPN All-NFC East team: Fullback: Darrel Young, Redskins. Dallas’ Tony Fiammetta got the press, but Young was ...

Redskins’ John Beck still not counting himself out

The season didn’t go anything like quarterback John Beck had envisioned. He, like all of his teammates, wishes he could have a do-over. But even though he opened the season as the backup, went winless in three mid-season starts and wound up on the bench again, Beck remains confident that his best football remains ahead of him.

Jammal Brown’s future hinges on offseason rehab

When the Washington Redskins re-signed right tackle Jammal Brown in July to a five-year deal worth $20.25 million, the hope was that two years removed from hip surgery, he would regain the form that made him a Pro Bowl player in 2006 and 2008 with the New Orleans Saints. But it quickly became apparent that Brown still hadn’t fully recovered, and he remained hobbled for a second...

‘Helu’s Hurdle’ ESPN’s No. 4 Top NFL Play

Click to view slideshow. Redskins running back Roy Helu knows that he’s in the business of taking big hits from defensive players.  He knows that sometimes his blocks will be there for a big play, and sometimes they won’t. But just because a defender is in the perfect position to make a play doesn’t mean that Helu will allow him to do that.  He proved that in Week 12 against...

Neild Relishes Mountaineers’ Bowl Victory

The Redskins’s division title drought

I know I’m not breaking any news when I saw this has been a bad few years for the Redskins, but still, I sometimes feel the need to quantify that a bit more, and to allow fans to accuse me of being a hater.

A Look At The 2012 Redskins Opponents

AP Image The 2012 NFL schedule is still months away, but with this week’s release of the 2012 opponents, it’s time for a premature analysis of the field. The 5-11 record won’t suggest it, but the NFC East opponents were supposed to have it easy this year, matching up against the NFC West and the AFC East.  As a reminder, no team had a winning record in the NFC West in 2010...
