The Washington Redskins will look to have a stellar draft this year after an impressive draft last year. All problems cannot and probably will not be solved in April, so the Redskins will have to begin adding weapons in March. Washington will likely be well under the cap and have room to make some key signings. Let’s take a look at some realistic options and a few not-so-realistic.
Washington spent the bulk of the focus last year on solidifying a defense that was ranked 31st. Last year the defense and specifically the front seven, has made strides in the right direction. This year the focus will be on the other side of the ball. The Redskins lack anybody on offense that absolutely puts fear in the hearts of an opposing team. They don’t have anybody, right now, that defenses have to game plan for (except for the guaranteed two turnovers by Rex Grossman). I believe that they will target several key players in free agency, so long as they are young enough and hungry enough. Here’s a ...

Griffin could provide for this offense what no QB has been able to in recent Redskins history
Luckily for Redskins fans the playoffs can’t affect the teams draft status come April. As many of you know, right now the Redskins sit at pick number six. Usually the sixth pick is regarded as a very nice position to be in, but not when your top prospects at quarterback are likely to be...

Myers is the latest of the Redskins players to join Twitter (@RobMyersTE), a list that includes Graham Gano, Jabar Gaffney and Willie Smith. Notable players missing on the trendy social network includes Sav Rocca, Roy Helu...

Nebraska’s native son Niles Paul has returned home to spend time catching up with his family. A native of Omaha, Neb., he spent his college days only an hour away in Lincoln.
Going into the NFL, he knew that he would have to leave the land of Johnny Carson (and the band 311), and he ended up 20 hours away in Washington, D.C.
The NFL season is a grind for anyone, especially...
When the Washington Redskins were clicking on all cylinders in 2011, they were one team that was hard to stop. It is unbelievable that the Burgundy and Gold were able to dominate the New York Giants in the fashion that they did in both games this past season but the Redskins ended up 5-11 and are sitting at home and now here are the New York Giants as the NFC East Champions...
As seems to happen most years around here, the Ravens are in the playoffs, and the Redskins are not. That’s the fifth time in six seasons we’ve been confronted by such a scenario.
Many times, this prompts a small debate: should Redskins fans root for the Ravens in the playoffs? Ravens President Dick Cass, remember, talked to me this summer about his team’s increasing presence...

For as long as Joe Gibbs does interviews that include the word “football,” he will be asked about Dan Snyder’s level of involvement in the Redskins’ football operations.
It happened again last week, when Gibbs was on ESPN 980 to talk about the playoffs, and Kevin Sheehan eventually asked him about the perception that Snyder is now less involved in personnel decisions than...
