Redskins Hog Heaven:
The Washington Redskins unveiled its 80th Anniversary uniforms Friday in a ceremony at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia.
Designed by Nike, the uniform is a reinterpretation of the 1937 Redskins uniform worn when George Preston Marshall moved the franchised from Boston to Washington, DC. The Redskins won the NFL Championship that season with rookie sensation and future Hall of Famer, "Slingin'" Sammy Baugh. We hope that is an omen of things to come! The association of Slingin' Sam to RG3 is surely dancing in Daniel Snyder's head. It's a vision I very much want to share.
The jersey returns to the darker true burgundy color worn by the team when I first attended live games. I will not date myself, but here is a hint. Norman Snead was the quarterback. The helmet bore a single large feather on the top center.
That uniform was the flashiest ever worn by the burgundy and gold and is still my favorite. Alas, that color did not translate well on black and whit...

In which the author looks at two very different futures for the Washington Redskins, one at a time. A quick note: this piece is meant to be a bit tongue in cheek. The crystal ball would obviously state that the future of the Washington Redskins lies somewhere in between these two extremes. The Redskins have never picked higher than they just did for RG3 at any point in the...

There are so words for this other than awesome.
Veteran free agent running back Tim Hightower has rejoined the Washington Redskins via an agreement on a one-year contract.
Hightower made the announcement via his official Twitter account.
A league source confirmed the accuracy of Hightower's Tweet.
Hightower is coming off a torn left anterior cruciate ligament sustained last season against the Carolina Panthers.
Whether it was officially expressed or not, the Redskins made a somewhat unexpected committment to the ways of the past two years when they allowed Mike Shanahan to pick the team's 2012 quarterback, which he did by trading every first round pick the Redskins had while he was under contract to move up and select Robert Griffin III. Observers around the trade were pretty convinced...
