This Thursday marks the first preseason game for both the Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins. They’ll play at Ralph Wilson Stadium where fans can experience watching football when there isn’t a snow storm. Needless to say, expectations are high. Of course once you remind these sun-kissed fans that it’s just a preseason game – [...]

For the Washington Redskins, their success in the past always hinged on quarterback play and offensive line consistency. And, as an admitted D.C. Homer, there's been nearly nothing positive in those areas for the past decade. As a result, it's been extremely easy to write the Skins off every year.
The last time Washington won their division was in 1999 (Family Guy's...
The disaster that became the Buffalo Bills' 2011 season was seen to be largely blamed on the poor performance of the injured offensive line.
The big boys of the offense started out tremendously and their work during the 5-2 start was enough to carry them to the fewest sacks in the NFL, as well as ranking them fifth in rushing yards per carry.
However, a lack of depth and...
Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams are set to play for the first time since Dec. 4 in Thursday's preseason opener after they were suspended for the final four games of 2011 for failing multiple drug tests.
Asked if he's eager to face the Buffalo Bills, Williams chuckled and said, ''More than you know, man. I get tired of blocking...
The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed its newest class this past weekend, as Willie Roaf, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Dermontti Dawson, Curtis Martin and Jack Butler made up the Class of 2012.
And for the seventh straight year, former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed had to watch from home instead of taking his rightful place in the Canton, Ohio, facility.
Torell Troup is still trying to become an impact player with the Buffalo Bills.
But, he’ll have to overcome injuries and surgery first.
Troup, a nose tackle selected with the Buffalo Bills’ second round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, recently had offseason back surgery and has been trying to take part in team drills during training camp. However, he apparently had some sort...
According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has indicated that running back Evan Royster will get the start for Thursday’s game against the Bills.
This doesn’t come as a surprise, since Royster has been getting the first team reps throughout training camp so far.
The organized team meetings, non sanctioned team meetings, and the summer training camp have come and gone for the Washington Redskins. This coming week the 2012 NFL season will come full swing as the first preseason games of the year will commence. This preseason will be very big for the Redskins as they pull the bubble [...]
The Redskins are expected to take the field for Thursday's preseason opener at Buffalo minus three starters along the offensive line, but offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said he's not concerned about those injuries at this point in training camp. "It's part of camp. Yeah, we have three starters who aren't practicing right now. I'm hoping we'll get...
I'm ready for some football. Even though Redskins at Bills is a pretend game, it beats TV replays of games played between teams that are not the Washington Redskins.
Robert Griffin III is the most compelling personality of the rookie class. We have been comparing him to big signings of Redskins lore, but interest in this guy is beyond that. I don't believe that jersey sales...
Rookie Robert Griffin III makes his debut for the Washington Redskins tonight vs. the Buffalo Bills: the same team that humiliated the Washington offense in 2011, proving the need to chase RGIII. Here's a look at the ugly statistical side of Thursday's pre-season slate.
On Sunday, September 25, 2011, I awoke fairly early in the morning despite the fact that I probably had a hangover. I can’t say I had one for certain because the events of that fateful Sunday wiped out any memory of the preceding days. All that mattered that day was a three and a half hour time period that removed an eight- year spell of torture and brittleness casted on the...
