With the help of a great Trent Williams’ block, Jackson was able to take a short RGIII 69 yards for...

A David Amerson’s gaffe led to the first Indianapolis Colts touchdown of the game. Amerson lined up next to safety Brandon Meriweather with both Colts’ receivers Cody Fleener and T.Y.

Bashaud Breeland, David Amerson and the future of NFL Cornerbacks

Beating the Cowboys is huge, enough to justify even a bad season.  It’s even bigger to beat them in Dallas.  Even bigger than that is doing it Monday Night Football.  Even bigger than that is being the unanimous underdog. The biggest shocker however was the incredible performance by rookie Bashaud Breeland and 2nd year newbie David Amerson against perhaps the best offense in...

Injuries are inescapable. You can only hope that they come at the right place and the right time. For the Washington Redskins, the loss of cornerback DeAngelo Hall for the season did neither. Washington’s offense is shifting into fourth gear, and their rush defense continues to dominate, but one glaring problem remains on this Redskins team: the secondary. Even with Hall, there...

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...

The best thing I can say about the Redskins secondary is that all of these guys used to be pretty good football players. I don’t feel I can say that anymore.
