Why the Washington Redskins still have a lot to look forward to.

So what’s left for the Washington Redskins? This season has been pretty much a total failure, and there’s not much hope on the horizon. But do Redskins fans, and the Redskins themselves, have anything to look forward to for the rest of the season? The answer is yes. They have Robert Griffin III. Even before RGIII was injured this year, there was a small, yet vocal, group of people...

The 10 Most Disappointing Redskins Of The Past 20 Years Or So

Brian Orakpo’s season ended this week, another torn pectoral muscle ending another underwhelming campaign. That likely ends his time with the Redskins, too. He had some decent seasons — including a few Pro Bowl campaigns — but I’ll always think of him as somewhat disappointing, because he wasn’t supposed to be decent. He was supposed to be a dominating sack machine, the...

Matthew McConaughey loves the Redskins nickname

Matthew McConaughey, whose opinion apparently is relevant to the matter, favors keeping the Washington Redskins nickname and logo. Sure, all right. McConaughey, who hung out at Redskins camp last summer, sat down with GQ for a cover story in the November issue. The conversation turned to fatherhood, which naturally led to a discussion of the NFL team’s name controversy. (Don...

How the Redskins can beat the Cowboys

Let’s be real. The Redskins are awful and the Cowboys are looking great with the best record in the NFL. Yet the Redskins can beat the Cowboys using ‘guerrilla’ football tactics.  Some Redskins’ old time fans remember the season the Redskins were dominating and threatened to have an undefeated season with just two games left.  Those two games were against pushover teams...

Is Brian Orakpo done in Washington?

LB Brian Orakpo is hurt again.  More alarming, it is an injury to his right pectoral muscle.  Orakpo has already had two previous injuries and surgeries in 2011 and 2012 to his left pectoral muscle.  He will undergo an MRI tomorrow to  determine the extent of the injury. If the MRI reveals a tear, Orakpo will likely be done for the season.  If that is the case, then the 2009...
