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...

Did RGIII return to soon?

 Robert Griffin the third, quarterback for the Washington Quarterback, made an inspiring comeback from a devastating ACL tear in his right leg last year. Maybe it’s his exciting style of play, or his tenacious refusal to quit that makes me want to root for him. While watching him play last week though, I couldn’t help but wonder if he will be more of a detriment to his team...

Breaking Bad star says Redskins need to change their name

Breaking Bad star Jonathan Banks who plays the role of “Mike” on the hit television series is a Washington D.C. native and Redskins fan. Banks is a Skins fan that believes his team needs to change their offensive name. “We gotta change the name, dude. Even if there are two American Indians out there that don’t want to be called Redskins. Just change the name. “If somebody’s...

ESPN’s Outside the Lines examines the Redskins name

After watching this piece by ESPN,  I thought it was interesting how many powerful people don’t approve of the Redskins name. I truly believe that sooner or later the name will be changed.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

Packers DT B.J. Raji says defense plans to test RG3 running ability

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III looked rusty and maybe not 100% recovered from a knee injury suffered in the 2012 playoffs. On Monday night, Griffin struggled with his mobility and the Green Bay Packers want to put him to the test and will work to flush him from the pocket and make him beat them by running, something they wouldn't have done with a healthy Griffin.

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.'' Cornerback DeAngelo Hall says the next opponent is ''probably smiling right now looking at our defense.'' Linebacker London Fletcher...

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...

Redskins still confident in Robert Griffin III

Despite an 0-2 start and the team struggling on offense, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan quickly dismissed the idea of possibly benching quarterback Robert Griffin III in favor of backup Kirk Cousins, according to the Washington Post."We've got a lot of confidence in Robert," said Shanahan.Griffin has not looked like himself through the first two games...

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...

FOX intern has crush on Robert Griffin III

After tearing his ACL at the end of last season, it’s obvious that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III does not have the same mobility he did when he lit the NFL on fire in his rookie year.  But an intern at FOX Sports is yearning for RGIII’s moves.  So much so, that he (or she) couldn’t get Bobby Griffin out of his (or her) head Sunday while running the bottom line....

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’...

A gimpy Robert Griffin III will continue to struggle and disappoint loyal Washington Redskins fans

Dynamic Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III struggled in Washington’s 38-20 blowout loss Sunday to the Packers in Green Bay. Allegedly healed from January’s reconstructive surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee, the 23-year-old Griffin threw three touchdowns, against one pick, for 320 yards against Green Bay in garbage time. Suffering the same injury...
