Niles Paul hasn't even played half of an NFL season yet, but he already is hearing taunts from opposing defenders. "Is that all you do is block?" Paul, the Washington Redskins' rookie receiver, recalled with a laugh this week. "I make sure I get them back for saying that." The ...

A week after his first pass route in an official NFL game ended in an interception, thanks to a miscommunication between him and quarterback John Beck, Redskins rookie wide receiver Leonard Hankerson did better, recording the first catch of his career.
Beck connected with Hankerson on a 23-yard pass on a third-and-8 play late in the first quarter.

This game may not have started off like the Redskins wanted for the first 45 minutes, but credit this young team for not giving up. On the second Bills’ drive of the second half, it was the young defenders that sparked the three-and-out, with Kevin Barnes and Ryan Kerrigan getting back-to-back tackles for a loss. On third down, the Bills completed a pass over the middle for...
When a player gets injured and people start whispering about his possible departure from the team, that player usually goes on a public relations campaign, professing his loyalty to his current team and fan base.
When Chris Cooley does it, it’s not PR. It’s real and believable and exactly the reason why Cooley will always be a fan favorite here in D.C.
Cooley addressed the...

The trade for Tim Hightower this offseason brought a running back to Washington that was well-versed in pass-protection. A running back that can perform in all three facets of the game offers the offense more possibilities while he’s in the game, something that has been missing since Clinton Portis in his prime.
But now that Hightower’s season has ended on injured...
Handing out labels after Skins games. Today, a 23-0 stinker in Toronto.
London Fletcher — Made a red-zone interception, not that it mattered.
Ryan Kerrigan — Made two or three nice plays in the backfield.
Sav Rocca — Is it possible that he wins offensive team MVP?
Brian Moorman — He always makes me think of Sean Taylor.
Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Beard — RFB > John...
The banged-up Washington Redskins will have free safety O.J. Atogwe (knee), LB London Fletcher (hamstring), CB DeAngelo Hall (hip) in the lineup against the Buffalo Bills.
Was it really only a few weeks ago that the Redskins were 3-1 and in first place in the NFC East? It’s hard to believe we ever thought Washington was a good team, because right now the Redskins are a mess. The Redskins turned in a lousy performance in Toronto today, getting blanked by the…
TORONTO — As currently constituted, the Washington Redskins barely resemble a pro football team. They can't run the ball. They can't throw it. They can't stop the opposition from doing either. If the past three weeks are a preview of how it's going to be the rest of the way, ...
