BEST OF MAXIM
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan this week reaches the halfway point of his rookie season, and counting training camp, he has now been going for 11 weeks straight — almost the equivalent of a full college season.
Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said that he hasn’t noticed any wearing down or hitting of the rookie wall, and that he is pleased with Kerrigan’s durability...
A recent post by Dr. Aaron of “Joe Sports Fan” blog captured our attention, because it discusses almost everything you’d ever want to know about Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker.
Carriker is having a beastly start to 2011, already accumulating more sacks (4.5) than he had in his career combined (3.5). He is also on track to break his season-high in tackles,...
HIT THE 'SKINS
When used properly marketing can be a powerful thing. Little known (and probably even less used) condom company NuVo Condoms sent Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck a weekly supply for protection, after he was sacked a whopping 9 times last Sunday by the Buffalo Bills. Here are details, per a press release sent to the [...]
Washington Redskins starting free safety Oshiomogho Atogwe missed a second straight practice with knee and toe injuries, according to the team’s injury report.
It’s the same knee injury that sidelined Atogwe two games ago. He played last week but aggravated the knee and suffered the toe injury against the Bills.

Day Two of trying to make Kevin Durant a serious football player:
Yesterday, I asked you, the people of Redskins Nation, to step into the loafers of general manager Bruce Allen, and decide whether or not you would bring in NBA star, Maryland Native, and noted Redskins fan Kevin Durant.
To the tune of 81 percent, you said “Yes!”
Today, the fine folks at Panini America (via SBNation’s...
If they weren’t there already, the Washington Redskins have reached the point of desperation.
A win on Sunday against the 6-1 San Francisco 49ers would give the team a huge lift and keep it from sliding too far out of contention. A loss, however, would drop Coach Mike Shanahan’s team to 3-5 and put the Redskins in danger of sliding into last place in the NFC East.
I’m obviously obsessed with television ratings for D.C.’s pro teams, and how they rank to other franchises around the country. I don’t know why. I just am.
Usually, these comparisons are limited to MLB, NHL and NBA franchises, based on SportsBusiness Journal’s twice-a-year look at the regional sports network rankings. In the most recently completed seasons, according to SBJ...
1. Can the offense, um, score a point? Turns out you can't win if you don't score. The Redskins should really look into that this week. Seriously, though, it's back to basics. The offensive line must establish the running game and quarterback John Beck must see the field better and ...
Ahmad Brooks remembers going to RFK Stadium as a child to cheer for the Washington Redskins, the team his father, Perry Brooks, played for as a defensive tackle from 1978-84.
Brooks would wear his burgundy and gold and watch in admiration as the Redskins of old authored their storied careers.
On Sunday, Brooks, now an outside linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, will face the...
This is a rather magnificent piece of work by Redskins-Panthers Predictions winner Mathew Brown. Press play and read on.
John Beck is the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, and the Redskins have the most hopeless roster in the NFL.
This shouldn’t be news to anyone watching the Redskins play over the last two and a half weeks, but I know there are stupid fans out there right...
Coach Mike Shanahan said Trent Williams was limited in practice Friday, but he would not rule out the Redskins’ second-year left tackle for Sunday’s game against San Francisco. Shanahan said Williams will be a game-time decision.
>> Tight end Fred Davis, safety Oshiomogho Atogwe and cornerback Phillip Buchanon will be listed as questionable for Sunday’s contest, Shanahan...
The Washington Redskins offense, with a full roster in Week One of the regular season wasn’t considered exactly formidable, but after the past few weeks, the Redskins roster has taken a series of body blows, losing players at an alarming rate. WR Santana Moss has been lost for multiple weeks, RB Tim Hightower is lost for the rest of the season and TE Chris Cooley is...
