Found December 21, 2011 on Washington Times:
Willie Smith has had quite an introduction to the NFL.

Wrestling Fever Comes To Redskins Park

Click to view slideshow. Earlier this week, a unique fan creation showed up at Redskins Park in the form of a Redskins-themed championship belt.  And why not? The belt comes to Ashburn from James Makle, a firefighter from Prince George’s County, who made the belt for himself a few years ago.  As he stated in his accompanying letter, he was sending the letter to the team so that...

Brian Orakpo fighting double-teams

There are still two games remaining, but linebacker Brian Orakpo may see his sack numbers dip for the second year in a row. Orakpo had 11 as a rookie in 2009, 8.5 last year and has 7 through 14 games this season. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said despite that stat, Orakpo is still improving as a football player. Read full article >>

Redskins ticket seller offers money-back guarantee

Monday, I pointed out that the marketplace for Redskins-Vikings tickets seems fairly soft. Tuesday, I got another indication of that, when a reader sent me a link to this eBay listing: ***REDSKINS WIN OR YOU GET A FULL REFUND!!!*** Wait, really? Read full article >>

Will Ryan Kerrigan Win Defensive Rookie of the Year?

The Redskins didn’t do much right defensively in 2010. Amidst a tricky transition to the 3-4 defense, the unit finished the season ranked 31st. The change in philosophy was made more difficult by the lack of true 3-4 personnel, and so naturally Mike Shanahan made wholesale changes during the offseason. It started in the draft when Shanahan passed on several quarterbacks and selected...

Neild Brings Hess Trucking Joy To Fans

By now, many of you are familiar with Redskins nose tackle Chris Neild, and the nickname “Truck” that he acquired in the fifth grade. Perhaps not surprisingly, trucks were a favorite toy of Neild’s growing up.  Each Christmas he would thunder downstairs to find a new Hess truck under the tree.  His sister even called him “Hess” from time to time, a nickname that was...

Week 16 Power Rankings Roundup

AP Image It’s hard to believe that only a few short weeks ago, the Redskins media was considering the possibility of a 3-13 finish.  It’s even crazier to consider that this team was once sitting at 3-1. With each win and loss, the media has micro-analyzed the direction of this team, and we’re left with power rankings that reflect whatever the current mood may be.  In the...

Clinton Portis on Tim Tebow

Having transcribed more Clinton Portis radio interviews than possibly any living human, I was thrilled to learn that the former Redskins star would be on both Mike & Mike and Colin Cowherd’s program during a Tuesday trip to Bristol. Portis made headlines virtually every Tuesday in D.C., and this would be like a nostalgic trip to free blog traffic land. Read full article >>

Washington Redskins Seize Lead and Never Let Go in 23-10 Victory Over Giants

The New York Giants may control their own destiny as far as the playoffs go, but the Redskins certainly controlled this game.  Despite early game mistakes, they quickly seized the lead and never let go, dominating their division opponents for the second time this season. (Antrel Rolle may want to re-think his math a little bit.) The Good: In the absence of Fred Davis, many players...
