Eagles’ significant place in the evolution of the punt…

Sean Landeta punted for the Eagles through 1999-2002 and also in the 2005 season. Pooch-kick pin-downs were his specialty. I was pondering former Eagles’ punter Brad Wing’s good fortune the other day. The young man from Melbourne just signed a long-term deal with the Giants. It runs through 2019, and it includes $6.45 million in new money and $3.725 million in guarantees ...

Finally, after weeks and weeks of reviewing the top ten prospects at each position in the 2014 NFL Draft, I reach the moment everyone’s been anticipating with baited breath. That’s right: Kickers and punters. Washington really isn’t in the market for a kicker, as Kai Forbath has been very good during his time with the Redskins. He was 18-for-22 on field goals last season. He’s...

UPDATED: The 5 Worst Bargains on the Redskins Roster

The Washington Redskins are a team with a well-earned reputation for signing high-priced free agents that deliver precious little in return for those fat paychecks. What’s worse, since I don’t particularly care if Dan Snyder makes a lot of money from the Redskins or a helluva lot of money from the Redskins, is the amount of space some of these unproductive millionaires occupy...

Handing out labels after Skins games. This one a 20-6 miseryfest against the Giants. Winners Sav Rocca – Recovered from a terrible first punt to hit a couple of good ones, then recovered from certain disaster on a mishandled snap in his own endzone to get the ball away. Keith Burns – Made it through the entire season, which seemed unlikely at times. (Look, this was the end...

When All You Can Do Is Laugh

Game over. — Washington Redskins (@Redskins) December 8, 2013 Laughter is the best coping mechanism we possess.
