Torain makes most of opportunity as feature back;Rumbles for 135 yards, TD

ST. LOUIS | Ryan Torain finally heard the words he had been longing for all season long. The Washington Redskins running back got the news from position coach Bobby Turner midway through the second quarter Sunday.

Redskins-Rams Redux

AP Image Run Ryan, run. As Redskins fans got a glimpse of last year, running back Ryan Torain has the ability to put the team on his back and flat-out produce.  He finished the day with 19 rushes for 135 yards, and a 7.1 yards per carry average.  This was his fourth career 100-yard game, and the second-highest production of his career. He was also your runaway (pun intended) winner...

Brian Orakpo starts Ryan Kerrigan’s rookie of the year campaign

You remember the last time the Redskins had the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year? Try Mike Thomas, in 1975. Remember the last time the Skins had the NFL’s defensive rookie of the year? Try never. No, Jim Haslett in 1979 doesn’t count. This might be the year, though. Peter King, in his weekly SI.com column, wrote on Monday that “through the first quarter of the season, the...

Redskins Go Into Bye Week 3-1 with Win Against Winless Rams

The Washington Redskins did what they had to do with a dominant running game and beat the Rams 17-10. The Redskins were extremely rough a few times with a couple hits on defenseless Ram players on the return, but luckily for them it was only 15 yards and no fines (yet).  They really should consider fair catch signals.  No excuses though for the way they hit.  The defense did get...

Third Quarter Thoughts

The Rams have one of the best in-stadium promotions that I’ve ever seen, where a fan has 30 seconds to unravel an entire roll of streamer paper in 30 seconds.  This also happens to be one of my cat’s favorite games. Even with an assist by the clock operator, the selected Rams fan could not unravel the streamer in time, although she won something anyway. And that’s your Edward...
