NFL Experts Picking The Redskins

First Quarter Fakeouts

Akh’s Thoughts: Week 10

1-Another week, another embarrassment for the skins. Both sides of the team failed against the Dolphins, but the switch to Grossman(literally at the last minute) just reinforced that neither Beck or Grossman is the answer.
