Without wide receiver Pierre Garcon, the Washington Redskins offense is starting to look anemic (Credit: AP Photo)

Each team in the NFC East has faced serious struggles this season. The Washington Redskins have had some crucial injuries throughout the season and just as one seems to get better, another seems to pop up.
With the loss of tight end Fred Davis earlier this season and the possibility of a season-ending surgery to wide receiver Pierre Garcon’s foot, the Washington Redskins offense is looking pretty sad. Their veteran receiver, Santana Moss, leads the team with five receiving touchdowns. Leonard Hankerson and Josh Morgan are still developing as Washington Redskins and working with their rookie QB, Robert Griffin III.
Although Pierre Garcon has been active on the Redskins roster, he hasn’t produced much due to the injury he sustained in the week one game against the Saints. According to New.Fredricksburg.com, he tried to play and practice on it but, was advised by doctors to rest is completely.
It isn’t set in stone but with the Redskins season at 3-6 and plenty of conference games left to play, Garcon’s best bet is to get the surgery and get better before the start of next season.
Playoff hopes for the Redskins are close to flat lining, it’s time for them to look towards next season and what improvements they need to make. Better luck next time!

“I got this Jim” We got caught up in a false reality this year; there is no other way I can put that. As fans we all looked at RGIII and Alfred Morris with those big wide eyes like a bunch of teenage girls at a Backstreet Boys concert. Watching Robert turn up that sideline 76 yards for the win against the Vikings, watching Morris run for a few 100 yard plus games and the entire...
Yesterday during the lack luster Washington Redskins vs. Carolina Panthers game I had to close Twitter down. Yes the team, especially the defense played poorly, but the fan reaction was getting ridiculous.
All the complaining about defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has reached the heights of ridiculousness. Is our defense terrible? Yes. Are some of the play calls questionable...
Surgery may be in the future of Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon. Dealing with a plantar plate tear in his right foot the off season acquisition has only appeared in two games and has no timetable for returning to the field.
“There’s no real update or miracle that happened overnight,” Garcon said. “We’re going to try to go after the bye, see how it feels...
The Washington Redskins activated long snapper Nick Sundberg from injured reserve and announced offensive tackle Jammal Brown has been cleared to practice. Sundberg was placed on injured reserve with the designated to return label after finishing the season opener with a broken arm. Justin Snow, who has handled the long snapping duties since Week 2, was released after appearing...
Mike Shanahan's players are supporting their coach after he seemingly wrote off the Washington Redskins' season and then said his comments had been misinterpreted.
Washington co-captain London Fletcher said Tuesday that Shanahan is ''a proven winner, a two-time Super Bowl-winning head coach. He's not a person who gives up on a season.''
Good as Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are, look beyond the first-year quarterbacks making a strong first impression and check out other NFL rookies delivering dynamic performances.
The 503 games started by first-year players is the highest total through Week 9 since at least 1991, according to STATS LLC.
And those rookies are producing like never before: STATS says the 10...
Bill Murray should purchase the Washington Redskins.One of Murray's classic films, "Groundhog Day", has some painfully real similarities to the Washington Redskins. His character Phil found himself stuck in an endless time loop, repeating the same things over and over, trying to do something, ANYTHING differently each time in an effort to break free of the loop and...

Bill Goldberg joined Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and former wrestling announcer, turned weight loss champion, Chuck Carroll on 4th & Pain (4thandpain.com) to make his NFL Week 10 picks.
Goldberg believes the Atlanta Falcons will remain undefeated after Sunday’s contest against the New Orleans Saints. Carriker, who earns his living as a player, agrees.
Week 10 is not a week that will turn around your fantasy football season.You won't find many gems out there, yet there are a few safety valves that are worthy pickups if you need a bye-week substitute or want to take a flyer on a couple of gambles.
