Quick hits: Roy Helu played hurt against the Giants

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said rookie running back Roy Helu was injured (toe and leg) in the Giants game, but coaches didn’t realize how badly until they reviewed game tape and saw Helu’s diminished effectiveness.

Mike Shanahan: Rex Grossman not entirely to blame for flea-flicker pick

Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman threw an interception on a failed flea-flicker on the first play of Sunday’s game against the Giants. But on Monday – 24 hours removed from Washington’s 23-10 victory – coach Mike Shanahan said all the blame shouldn’t fall on Grossman.

Wrestling Fever Comes To Redskins Park

Click to view slideshow. Earlier this week, a unique fan creation showed up at Redskins Park in the form of a Redskins-themed championship belt.  And why not? The belt comes to Ashburn from James Makle, a firefighter from Prince George’s County, who made the belt for himself a few years ago.  As he stated in his accompanying letter, he was sending the letter to the team so that...

Neild Brings Hess Trucking Joy To Fans

By now, many of you are familiar with Redskins nose tackle Chris Neild, and the nickname “Truck” that he acquired in the fifth grade. Perhaps not surprisingly, trucks were a favorite toy of Neild’s growing up.  Each Christmas he would thunder downstairs to find a new Hess truck under the tree.  His sister even called him “Hess” from time to time, a nickname that was overheard...

AP Image It’s hard to believe that only a few short weeks ago, the Redskins media was considering the possibility of a 3-13 finish.  It’s even crazier to consider that this team was once sitting at 3-1.

Washington Redskins – 23, New York Giants – 10 Not quite the shocker of the Packers-Chiefs game, but this one was a bit of a surprise in its own right.  Rex Grossman (185 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs) and the Redskins went into the New Meadowlands and crushed the Giants’ postseason hopes.  Of course,Eli Manning’s (257 yards, 0 TDs, 3 INTs) implosion had a lot to do with that, as...

Washington Redskins Seize Lead and Never Let Go in 23-10 Victory Over Giants

The New York Giants may control their own destiny as far as the playoffs go, but the Redskins certainly controlled this game.  Despite early game mistakes, they quickly seized the lead and never let go, dominating their division opponents for the second time this season.
