Camp Preview: Washington Redskins are going big on the offensive line

With each passing day, the Redskins offseason moves sink in a little more. In all, the team did well to address their special-teams unit, make a couple splashes at receiver, tend to gaps at linebacker and in the secondary and fortify a suspect pass rush. More than anything, though, they bolstered their offensive line. After a changing of the guard from Mike Shanahan to Jay Gruden...

Redskins surprise cut #3: The end of the (O) line will not be a TyPo

This story submitted by Scott Hirsch For true Redskins’ fans, one of the most offensive parts of the Redskins is not the name but the play of the Offensive Line. Gruden basically  went so far as to say ‘calm down, folks!’ suggesting he may keep more starters than Trent Williams. The reality appears that Gruden is blaming poor Offensive Line play roughly as follows: 50% to...

The Three Little Pigs: The Redskins 2013 Interior Line Part 1

This post written by Scott Hirsch. Before we get excited about the Redskins in 2014, it’s important to understand what went wrong in 2013. By now we are familiar with the Shannahan-agans that went on – ego that rewarded assistant coaching jobs for ‘yes men’ (actually ball boys), the most predictable offense in the league, etc. One of the more interesting facts that came...

UPDATED: The 5 Worst Bargains on the Redskins Roster

The Washington Redskins are a team with a well-earned reputation for signing high-priced free agents that deliver precious little in return for those fat paychecks. What’s worse, since I don’t particularly care if Dan Snyder makes a lot of money from the Redskins or a helluva lot of money from the Redskins, is the amount of space some of these unproductive millionaires occupy...

Redskins to promote from within for offensive line?

Ok, so we’ve splashed cold water on everyone’s face with the article on free agency. What does that mean for the future this year? Are we doomed? No. When people talk about the biggest needs on the team, most people point to the secondary or the offensive line in their social media content. Let’s take a look at why the offensive line might indeed change, but from within as...

Redskins – Giants Week 17 inactives

The Redskins’ inactives today are headlined by Brian Orakpo, the team’s leading pass rusher [10 sacks] and WR Joshua Morgan, a starter-then-backup-then starter at wide receiver. OLB Rob Jackson will start in place of Orakpo, as he did for 14 games in 2012. Aldrick Robinson will start in place of Morgan, who was only starting himself because of the season-ending knee injury suffered...

Should Robert Griffin Sit or Play?

By now you probably know that Washington Redskins head coach [for now] Mike Shanahan announced during his Monday afternoon presser that he’s considering benching QB Robert Griffin III for the final three games because of fears for his health. A decision on this is expected today and indications are that Kirk Cousins will get the nod against Atlanta. Per to 2 people who have seen...

Inactives for Redskins – Giants Game

The Redskins will be without two tight ends and a fullback tonight. The big news is that rookie TE Jordan Reed, the team’s #2 receiver, will miss another game due to concussion symptoms. That’s a huge blow to the offense. We saw how poorly the passing offense operated last week without Reed. Without the rookie the offense basically has only one reliable playmaker in the passing...

Redskins re-sign Lichtensteiger: Wunderbar

The Washington Redskins finally reached five-year deal with Korey Lichtensteiger and all I can say is: Wunderbar, German for wonderful.

Alfred Morris could not have had his rookie record-breaking season without that offensive line. The only question it raises...
