PLAYERS: John Beck
TEAMS: Washington Redskins
The season didn’t go anything like quarterback John Beck had envisioned. He, like all of his teammates, wishes he could have a do-over. But even though he opened the season as the backup, went winless in three mid-season starts and wound up on the bench again, Beck remains confident that his best football remains ahead of him.

Kerrigan Quietly Mic’d On NFL’s ‘Sound FX’

It recently came to my attention that Redskins rookie linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was featured on the NFL Network’s show “Sound FX,” which features microphone’d players and whatever they have to say over the course of a game. The microphone in his helmet was used to catch his interactions between teammates, coaches and opponents during the Redskins-Vikings game on Christmas...

Rocca Came Here To Win A Championship

AP Image Shortly before Christmas, I had the opportunity to talk football with Australian Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Craig McMurtrie and his cameraman Louie Eroglu at Redskins Park. It turned out that not only has Redskins punter Sav Rocca been a punting stud in Washington this season, but he’s also turned heads 10,000 miles away in his native Australia.  The reason...

Chris Cooley certain he’ll be back with Redskins

Tight end Chris Cooley played in only five games this season and finished two of the past three seasons on injured reserve. Still, he has no questions about his future in Washington. “I have no doubt that I’ll be here,” he said. “I’m excited to continue to be a part of this team and to continue playing the game that I love.” Read full article >>

Redskins Have Their Very Own ‘R.G.3′

Click to view slideshow. While I typically focus my energies on professional football, one of the top names in all of football this year was Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, affectionately dubbed “R.G.3″ What most Redskins fans fail to realize is that the Redskins had their very own ‘R.G.3′ under center this season, in Rex Grossman III.  Seriously. Grossman has...

Cowboys-Giants outrates Redskins-Eagles in Washington market

The conventional wisdom is that Washington is unlike many other East Coast sports cities in fairly obvious ways. Here’s another piece of evidence: In all 30 NFL markets, the most-watched television show last week involved an NFL game. (The 49ers and Raiders, and Jets and Giants share a market.) In 27 of those markets, the most-watched television show last week involved the home...

Redskins' logos still subject of court battle

A years-long effort to cancel six Washington Redskins' federal trademarks is scheduled for trial next month before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, according to board documents. The petition by five Native Americans, Blackhorse vs. Pro-Football, Inc., asserts the team's name and logo are offensive. ...

Season Ending Power Rankings Roundup

AP Image Power rankings are designed to be equivalent to an approximate rankings of NFL teams, No. 1-32.  What it actually turns into is an over-hyped barometer that shamelessly follows winning and losing streaks, and has no ability to predict future results. In other words, it’s pointless in principle, product and practice.  But they are fun when your team is winning. Throughout...

Redskins considering ex-Buccaneers coach Morris as DB aide

The Washington Redskins are considering Raheem Morris for a position coaching defensive backs, according to league sources.

Shanahan says Redskins improved, had worse record

Mike Shanahan says he thinks the Washington Redskins are ''a much better football team'' than a year ago - even though the record isn't as good. Shanahan gave his final thoughts Monday after his worst full season as an NFL head coach. The Redskins went 5-11, finishing last in the NFC East for the fourth straight year. It was a step back, at least record-wise...
