Fred Smoot on Mike Shanahan: Sometimes grandma gets too old

Former Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot made an appearance with Holden and Danny on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. and once again ripped into head coach Mike Shanahan. “If he loses this game, this is the end of the Red Lobster,” Smoot said via The Washington Post. “I think you can put him in the broiler if he loses this game right here.” Like last time,  Smoot went on...

Robert Griffin III says 'bottom line, I can’t take those amount of hits'

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was hit 18 times against the Vikings in last Thursday’s loss, and he says that's way too much. He said that the number of hits has to decrease regardless of the reason why they’re happening. The future of the franchise QB depends squarely on how much punishment he takes and the offensive line, receivers, and Griffin himself has to...

Adam Carriker won’t be able to play in 2013

Washington Redskins Rebranding = $$$

It happens almost like clockwork in some form of fashion. Someone re-hashes the old adage of using Native American names for sport teams, like the Washington Redskins, which just happen to be the flavor of the year. Let’s put aside the obvious fact that many people forget that there are more teams out there with Native American names then just the Washington Redskins of the NFL...

London Fletcher: “The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible”

Even though the Redskins are only 3-6,  linebacker London Fletcher knows they’re still in the playoff hunt because of how bad their division is. “The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible.” said Fletcher via Philly.com. “You look at it and we’re in Week (11), and our leader is 5-5. So even at 3-6, we’re conceivably still in this thing.” ...

Redskins Stat of the Day: Pierre Garcon

WR Pierre Garcon has 61 receptions, the most in the NFC. His 18 third down receptions are third-most in the entire NFL. Garcon is on pace this season to catch 108 passes for 1428 yards, which would be career highs in both cases. The 108 receptions would be a franchise record, breaking the mark of 106 by Art Monk in 1984, which was an NFL record at the time.

History is not on Shanahan’s side

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan’s short leash is about to become a choke collar. Only one Redskins coach ever — Bill McPeak — has reached a fifth season with as sorry a winning percentage as Shanahan’s .421. Norv Turner was .454 at 49-59-1 from 1994 to 2000 and was considered a big disappointment. Like Shanahan, Turner inherited an aging team with little remaining...

Clinton Portis Says Having A Big Sack Made Him A Good Running Back

  Whatever helps you score points… Thanks to Gamedayr.com, found out something we didn’t necessarily know about Clinton Portis. Portis was visiting Fox Sports 1 on the set of “Crowd Gone Wild”, the host of “CGW” Regis Philbin asked a pretty straight forward question… “What makes you a good running back?” Portis answer?   Wasn’t the answer we were expecting...

Redskins season has become a week-to-week rerun

(Eds: With AP Photos. ) By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer The Washington Redskins have become a rerun. The plot was stale, and so was the dialogue when the players returned Monday from their so-called ''mini-bye'' following a Thursday game. The record still isn't good. (It's 3-6.). The NFC is still up for grabs. (They're only 1 1/2 games out of first)...

RG3: Bottom Line, I Can’t Take Those Amount Of Hits

Robert Griffin III has taken some vicious hits this season, but luckily for him and the Skins, he’s still standing. ESPN.com is reporting that Griffin III is wary of all the hits he’s taking, and he’s fully aware that he can’t continue to take that type of punishment. “Bottom line, I can’t take those amount of hits,” Griffin said. “You don’t want to be hit that...

Tribal leaders thank Obama for Redskins comments

Native American leaders used a meeting at the White House on Tuesday to thank President Barack Obama for wading into the controversy over the Washington Redskins team name and voicing his concern that the nickname was offensive. Ray Halbritter of the Oneida Nation, which has led efforts to get the National Football League team to change its name, thanked the president for speaking...

RG III: I can't take those amount of hits

Robert Griffin III knows he’s going to take a lot of hits. He also knows he can avoid at least some of them. As he continues to play the way he did in 2012, willing to run and not avoid contact in certain situations, the hits will add up. Not that Griffin is already wondering how these hits will affect him long term or whether they will shorten his career. (Or, perhaps, he’s...
