The team as a whole was only slightly better, as they reached 100 yards collectively but with a less than stellar...

Misery Loves Company: Field Trip To A Redskins Bar In Charlotte

I found out this is a Redskins bar by mistake. It was a new place in Plaza-Midwood, our favorite neighborhood in Charlotte.

The only other Redskins bar I knew of in...

BREAKING: Kirk Cousins benched in favor of Colt McCoy

The Kirk Cousins era is officially over in Washington. After starting the game 10 of 16 for 139 yards, an interception and a lost fumble, Jay Gruden pulled the trigger and replaced Cousins with Colt McCoy.
