Redskins Fans: If you could change one draft pick…what would that be?If you could go back in time, what is the one Redskins draft pick you would change?Every NFL team has their fair share of regrettable draft picks. The Redskins certainly have a few, although they have become more famous for botching free agency.I went back through a timeline of draft picks, mainly focusing on the Redskins’ post 1991 Super Bowl era.Looking at their first round picks there certainly weren’t any home runs.Missing on a couple picks in the NFL isn’t the end of the world unless you couple it with some historically bad free agent signings. That is exactly what happened to the Washington Redskins from 1993 to 1997.It’s 1993 and the first year of NFL free agency.General manager Charley Casserly decides not to re-sign several of the Super Bowl tested players such as Gary Clark, Art Monk and Martin Mayhew.

Kirk Cousins Gets No Regard, No Regard

Had Robert Griffin III not ended his season with a catastrophic knee injury, it’s quite possible that Redskins backup quarterback and future New Yorker scribe, Kirk Cousins, would be in the news more this off-season, as Washington might have considered trade offers from teams desperate for a QB. Circumstances being what they are, that isn’t the case, so Cousins will just have...

About The Redskins’ Hiring Of ‘Spectacular Asshole’ A.J. Smith

The Redskins’ hire of A.J. Smith, San Diego’s GM from 2003-12, as a senior exec has gone curiously undercovered. I mean, the Chargers were damn good some of those years, perhaps despite of our old friends Norv Turner and Marty Schottenheimer.

The Broncos are asking him to restructure, but they also believe they can replace him in the draft or during free agency. The Denver Post also reported that former teammate of Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney could be...

Denver Broncos: 5 Biggest Questions Heading Into 2013 Offseason

I’ve finally come to terms with how quickly the season ended for the Denver Broncos, although it ended in a rather unexpected way. The team had finally started to gel behind quarterback Peyton Manning during the second half of their week six-game in San Diego where the Chargers were dominating on both sides of the ball.  The Broncos came out in the second half as a team possessed...

Brett Favre is the Greatest Quarterback of All Time

What makes an elite quarterback? I’m not talking about elite in terms of fantasy value or who will top the league in 2013.No, what I want to know is what makes an all-time great, top of the heap, cream of the crop type of a quarterback?In my mind to be a part of the discussion you have to have a few things: at least one Super Bowl ring, at least 40,000 passing yards, at least 270...
