Camp Review: Reviewing the first few days of Washington Redskins training camp

First let’s start with the guy everyone wants to know about, quarterback Robert Griffin III. Griffin got off to a rough start on the first day of practice, mainly due to rain and sloppy conditions, which isn’t really an excuse because football games are sometime played in less than ideal circumstances. But it was only day one of camp, so no need to panic and make a big deal out...

2014 Fantasy Football: 3 Washington Redskins to Draft

Robert Griffin IIIDespite his poor performance last season he still had six games of 19 points or more after having eight such games in his rookie year. He is currently rated by ESPN as the seventh best quarterback available, so many experts see him as a great bounce back candidate. There is some risk involved, but his value is too good to pass up since he is going in the 6th round...

Camp Preview: The Washington Redskins have built a deadly receiving corps

Mark my words, by the end of this season, the Redskins receiving corps will be universally considered one of the top two or three in the league. Everyone wants to talk about DeSean Jackson—and we will—but we all forget about Pierre Garcon, who had an absolutely outstanding season last year. He went from a guy who normally topped out at around 50 to 60 catches a year, to a guy...

Can the Redskins win with an “average” offense? Part III: 3 Wide Receivers

For the first time in 10 or 20 years, the Redskins have a rising corps of receivers attuned to 21st Century football. Jay Gruden and Sean McVeay should be fired on the spot if they cannot invent mismatches with the Redskins’ 2014 receiving corps. But, we are getting ahead of ourselves.

TOP-5: The Washington Redskins best offseason acquisitions

Last year was pretty much a totally disaster, but it also feels like everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong. Because of that, if things just start falling the Redskins way, I think there should be plenty of room for optimism. Robert Griffin III is healthy again, Mike Shanahan is gone – a good coach in theory, but he has an ego the size of Fed Ex Field – and there...

Andre Roberts questions his decision to join the Washington Redskins

When Andre Roberts signed with the Washington Redskins, he envisioned himself as the No. 2 receiver in a pass-first offense. Unfortunately, that was quickly changed once DeSean Jackson entered the picture. Now, it is apparent that Jackson and Pierre Garçon will be the headlining acts, relegating Roberts to a much-reduced roll. “Well, I envisioned one thing and then we singed DeSean...

The best Washington Redskins WR no one is talking about

When the Washington Redskins signed free agent WR Andre Roberts, they did so with very little fanfare. Picked in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2010 NFL Draft, Roberts has never had more than 64 catches in a season. Considering what round he was selected, and given his productivity–or lack thereof–there may seem to be a reason why many don’t expect much from...

Andre Roberts to return kicks for the Redskins?

John Keim of believes Andre Roberts could return kicks and punts for Washington in 2014. While DeSean Jackson can help them on punt returns, that’s not a role you want him to do more than occasionally. They need him making plays at receiver more than anything and at his size, you want to limit the wear and tear on his body. Andre Roberts could potentially fill both roles...
