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 they may be inspired by the support that fans still have for the team:
I decided to send the belt now because I feel the fans need this…the fans still support the team. I see all the signs, jerseys and car flags. The fans still LOVE their REDSKINS. I hope you guys love the belt…it’s just my way of saying thank you. Bring the fun back to the NFL.
With belt in-hand, I knew there was only one man who could truly appreciate the magnificence of a championship belt: defensive end Adam Carriker. Carriker is an unrepentant fan of professional wrestling, and he also happens ...

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.

Roy Helu has been limited in practice all week but said Thursday he now feels “really good.”
The rookie running back suffered injuries last weekend to his toe and knee, according to the injury report, and Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said it affected him in the game against the Giants. Helu he was tackled awkwardly Sunday and felt a lot of pain earlier in the week.
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:

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...
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...
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...
Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman has given the ball away 22 times -- 18
interceptions and four lost fumbles -- which ties him for the NFL
lead with Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers.
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.

1. How will Roy Helu's injuries affect his impact? The rookie running back appeared on the injury report this week after totaling 116 touches in the last four games. Knee and toe injuries slowed him against the Giants last Sunday. The Redskins could limit his carries and give Evan Royster ...
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.)
In the absence of Fred Davis, many players...
