Found November 12, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Former Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot made an appearance with Holden and Danny on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. and once again ripped into head coach Mike Shanahan. “If he loses this game, this is the end of the Red Lobster,” Smoot said via The Washington Post. “I think you can put him in the broiler if he loses this game right here.” Like last time,  Smoot went on to say how “terrible” Shanahan is and that the Skins need a head coach that “understands RGIII talent.” Smoot did give Shanahan credit for bringing in good players.  But said he can’t coach. “I didn’t say he shopped for bad groceries. He shopped for good players,” Smoot said, before launching into the most Smoot-like analogy of all Smoots. “Like we said, he just cannot cook. You know, sometimes grandma gets too old. She know what to go in the grocery store and get, but she just cannot whip it up like she used to.” “Great coaches get the most out of players, even the players that are not that good, they get the most out of these players. With Shanahan right now, I think right now the game has just passed him. Like he’s not a bad coach, he’s a Super Bowl winning coach, but I just think right now, today’s athletes, and everything that goes on with today’s football, has just simply passed him.” You can certainly always count on a very entertaining interview with Smoot.   Need NFL Tickets?

Another Look at Nick Williams

DISCUSS THIS IN THE DC PRO SPORTS REDDIT! By now you know the Redskins moved RB Chris Thompson to injured reserve and activated WR Nick Williams off the practice squad.

Deja vu for the 2013 Washington Redskins?

Last year at this time the 2012 Washington Redskins found themselves at 3-6. They were heading into their bye week with 7 games remaining and everybody wondering what direction they were headed. Was the team that showed up week 1 versus New Orleans, and dominated, showing up or was the team that had just lost to a 1-7 Carolina Panthers the real Redskins. Here we are now in 2013 and...

London Fletcher: “The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible”

Even though the Redskins are only 3-6,  linebacker London Fletcher knows they’re still in the playoff hunt because of how bad their division is. “The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible.” said Fletcher via “You look at it and we’re in Week (11), and our leader is 5-5. So even at 3-6, we’re conceivably still in this thing.” ...

Redskins Stat of the Day: Pierre Garcon

WR Pierre Garcon has 61 receptions, the most in the NFC. His 18 third down receptions are third-most in the entire NFL. Garcon is on pace this season to catch 108 passes for 1428 yards, which would be career highs in both cases. The 108 receptions would be a franchise record, breaking the mark of 106 by Art Monk in 1984, which was an NFL record at the time.

History is not on Shanahan’s side

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan’s short leash is about to become a choke collar. Only one Redskins coach ever — Bill McPeak — has reached a fifth season with as sorry a winning percentage as Shanahan’s .421. Norv Turner was .454 at 49-59-1 from 1994 to 2000 and was considered a big disappointment. Like Shanahan, Turner inherited an aging team with little remaining...

Redskins season has become a week-to-week rerun

(Eds: With AP Photos. ) By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer The Washington Redskins have become a rerun. The plot was stale, and so was the dialogue when the players returned Monday from their so-called ''mini-bye'' following a Thursday game. The record still isn't good. (It's 3-6.). The NFC is still up for grabs. (They're only 1 1/2 games out of first)...
