Haslett on Bacarri Rambo: ‘We gave him every opportunity’

The Washington Redskins enter Week 3 with the No. 1 defense in the NFL. The Redskins have allowed 234.5 yards per game, including just 164.5 yards against the pass. That’s a number that could be lower if not for a 76-yard touchdown pass from Houston’s Ryan Fitzpatrick to DeAndre Hopkins or 63-yard touchdown from Jacksonville’s Chad Henne to Marcedes Lewis — both of which...

Why the Washington Redskins are actually much better than anyone thinks

Don’t look now, but the Washington Redskins, statistically, may be the best team in the NFL. After two weeks, the Redskins rank in the top ten in terms of offensive rushing and passing yards and opponents rushing and passing yards. In fact, they’re in the top five in every category except for offensive passing yards, where they rank 10th. Now I know what you’re saying: “Uh…...

Bacarri Rambo’s days may be numbered

For the second straight week the Redskins gave up a huge pass for a touchdown. And for the second straight week the blunt of the blame is on safety Bacarri Rambo.

When he picked up the fact that Lewis had broken free from...

Redskins Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down (Week Two)

The Washington Redskins gave the Jacksonville Jaguars a hometown beat down, pummeling the Jags 41-10.  The victory was costly though, as the Redskins more than likely lost QB Robert Griffin III for the season.  Griffin reportedly suffered a dislocated ankle when he came down awkwardly on the left ankle in the first quarter.  Besides Griffin, WR DeSean Jackson was lost for the...

Why Chris Baker is set to be a major part of the Washington Redskins

There is a crack in the fault line that runs down the center of the Washington Redskins defense, with Barry Cofield scheduled to be out at least eight weeks because of a high ankle sprain, and Brandon Meriweather serving the final game of an unwarranted suspension. In Meriweather’s place we might see a new face playing strong safety this week, if the team is ready to insert Duke...

NFL rescinds Jason Hatcher’s sack

There were a lot of bad and ugly for the Redskins in their 17-6 loss to the Houston Texans. There were two blocks on special teams, the first coming on an extra point by J.J. Watt and the second by Alfred Blue on a punt that he recovered and returned for a touchdown; Bacarri Rambo got lost reading quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick’s eyes and gave up a 76-yard touchdown; and how about...

The Washington Redskins get a slight pass, and only a slight pass, for their performance in a week 1 17-6  loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Bacarri Rambo accepts blame for giving up 76-yard TD

The Washington Redskins held the Houston Texans to 201 yards passing and 14 completions, but one of those 14 proved costly.
