Found September 29, 2013 on Football Extra Points:
After starting off 0-3 with losses to the Eagles, Packers, and Lions, the Washington Redskins face the Oakland Raiders today in what could be a season deciding game. Going 0-4 would most likely end the Redskins playoffs hopes since they would have to win nine of their remaining 12 games in order to finish 9-7. The Redskins struggles early on have been well documented. Quarterback Robert Griffin III has looked extremely rusty early on making mistakes Redskins fans were not used to seeing in his rookie year. For example in the 2012-season, Griffin had five interceptions total. This year he already has four in just three games.His mistakes proved costly last week against the Lions as Griffin scrambled and ran for 21 yards but fumbled when trying to slide headfirst. The Lions recovered the football and any momentum that the Redskins may have gained. Griffin also threw an interception in the red-zone in the second quarter which also likely cost the Redskins at least three points. While G...

It’s unreal.” Yahoo! Sports also interviewed Jackson himself, who seemingly confirmed...

The Washington Redskins escaped "The Black Hole" with their first victory of the season, a 24-14 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Clare Danes Can Really Do Crazy: Early Week 4 Fantasy Pick Ups

Can you believe that the Simpsons are in their 25th season?  25 years and still going with somewhat socially relevant stories and occasional references to an incredibly violent cat and mouse pair.  Yeah, not many other shows can get away with that and just keep getting renewed.   And this last week (spoiler alert) they did a little play on the show “Homeland”, an excellent...

Brian Orakpo is displeased with Dick Stockton

After the game, when learning about Stockton's difficulties saying his name, Orakpo wasn'...

Washington Redskins at Oakland Raiders: 2013 Week 4 NFL Pick

Washington Redskins (0-3) at Oakland Raiders (1-2) Terrelle Pryor has not technically been named the starter at quarterback for the Raiders in this one, after suffering a concussion this week, but he’s passed all of the NFL’s tests and is going to take one precautionary test before the game before the Raiders clear him. I’d be pretty surprised if he was held out of this one...

Kyle Shanahan doesn't know the Redskins secret formula for sucess

Finally the Redskins have a victory. True, it was against the second stringers of one of the bottom five teams in the NFL, but they will take it. Given the sad showing of the NFC East, the Redskins somehow have a glimmer of hope.  To have any chances, the Redskins are going to have to kick it up several notches to go on a run. The question is ‒ how can they dramatically...

Redskins-Raiders Winners & Losers

Handing out labels after Skins games. This time a 27-14 win over Oakland. Winners Robert Griffin III. Didn’t make any spectacular plays, but didn’t make any big mistakes either (well, aside from the intentional grounding in the redzone). His movement looked better, especially on the scramble then pass to Helu which led to the final TD. “Efficient” is the Football Term for...
