The Redskins were dealt crippling blows to their defense last week, losing starting cornerback Josh Wilson, top pass rusher Brian Orakpo, and starting defensive lineman Adam Carriker in the game against St. Louis. The trio played 52, 18, and 2 of 71 snaps respectively. The Redskins’ poor defense had a ton of trouble stopping a Rams offense that isn’t great to begin with and after the game, they were forced to put Orakpo and Carriker on IR. Carriker’s loss isn’t huge. He’s a marginal starter and they have 2011 2nd round pick Jarvis Jenkins waiting in the wings. However, Orakpo was their best pass rusher and they had no depth behind him. The mediocre Rob Jackson, a 2008 7th round pick and a career backup, will take his place in the lineup, a huge downgrade.
The good news is that Wilson is expected to play this week despite suffering a concussion last week. He’ll continue to start opposite DeAngelo Hall. Neither of those cornerbacks are that great, but if Wilson had to miss and Cedric ...

After sitting down with Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, free agent tight end Chris Cooley gets the feeling that the only way he might re-sign with the Redskins is if someone gets hurt and they need him.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Cooley said in a telephone interview, via The Washington Post. “I want to play here, but I don’t know if anything...
Before you ever insult you car and call it a hunk of junk or P.O.S., take this into consideration. Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris’ daily ride is a 1991 Mazda 626.
Now you may ask why the hell is an NFL running back, who signed a 4- year, 2.223 million dollar contract in early may, driving this death trap. The answer is pretty simple according to him, it reminds...
She’s a sweet ride.
Redskins running back Alfred Morris isn’t about to let his newfound success go to his head. As a rookie his base salary of $390,000 is peanuts compared to the majority of his millionaire teammates, but it’s still a decent enough yearly wage that Morris could afford himself an expensive car like the Porsches, Cadillacs, BMWs and tricked-out SUVs he sees...
Mike Shannahan is certainly known for his bag of tricks when it comes to offense, especially during his short time in Washington with the Redskins. He certainly could not ask for a better quarterback to be able to direct that offense than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor University in Robert Griffin, III. Through three games this season, Griffin has shown that he...
Let me get this straight - you are threatening Josh Morgan with death because he lost his cool and threw a football? Way to lead by example.
@zacboyer Twitter might have shut it down. Redskins reported accounts to the police.

This is just a straight repost, with credit to Terez for drawing the comparison… I always knew that Robert Griffin had a unique look. He’s got a strong sense of style, a love of socks, and he’s a pretty unique guy. But he’s reminded me of someone…
The Washington Redskins come into this game hurting. They lost two of their top defensive stars for the season in Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker, and they relinquished a 15-point lead in their Week 2 matchup with the St. Louis Rams to lose on the road, 31-28.
What direction this team is headed in is still hard to gauge. The defense has put on a Jekyll-and-Hyde performance in each...
So far this season the Redkins have won a game we didn’t expect them to win and lost a game we didn’t expect them to lose, which is very Redskins. The difference of course is that Robert Griffin III was our quarterback in both games, and he was spectacular. May he be so again, no matter what occurs.
Wizards point guard John Wall and rapper Wale checked out the Redskins vs. Bengals today. Redskins loss 38-31. Rookie QB Robert Griffin III threw one touchdown but, threw an incomplete pass on a third-and-50 on the game’s last play. He ended the day with 221 yards, 34 attempts and 21 completions for you fantasy game [...]
Fail to the Redskins! Here are my five keys to a Cincy win in the Capitol this Sunday:
1. Score Early/Get Ahead: The Bengals are on the road for the Redskins home opener. FedEx field is huge, and usually sold out. They will be loud and rocking as they get their highly-anticipated first look at RGIII. The Bengals would do well to get up on the skins by a touchdown...
NFL Fines Redskins And Rams Players -
Redskins WR Josh Morgan had the costliest mental mistake of Sunday’s game in St. Louis, when his 15-yard penalty for throwing the ball at Rams CB Cortland Finnegan pushed Washington out of range for a game-tying field goal. But Morgan didn’t have the costliest fine to arise from that game. Morgan was fined $7,875 for throwing the ball at...
Rookie sensation Robert Griffin III quipped after a loss to the Rams that he believed the Rams were guilty of dirty play. Griffin, after only his second game, was professional in his answer. Griffin vetted that he probably wasn’t in a position to accurately criticize because of his limited time in the league. Still, [...]
