Redskins week 1 recap: Half of NFL teams are 0-1

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. That pass I speak of wears 99 for the Texans and is a pass that completely dominated the Redskins and kept RG3 from doing anything that required more than three seconds in the pocket. Is 0-1 anything to be upset about, definitely not. There...

Five things we learned from the Washington Redskins loss to the Texans

You know it’s not your day when a bad call that goes in your favor winds up costing you three points. That sequence was emblematic of the game as a whole, with the Redskins unable to take advantage of good fortune on the rare occasion it presented itself.

The streak had to end sometime. After winning eight straight preseason games dating back to 2012, the Washington Redskins lost to the Baltimore Ravens 23-17 Saturday night.

With the regular season fast...

Gruden officially names Keenan Robinson starting Mike linebacker

When the Washington Redskins drafted linebacker Keenan Robinson in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft they did so with the intention of him being the potential successor to the aging London Fletcher at Mike linebacker. But, a torn pectoral muscle in both 2012 and 2013 derailed his development. So when Fletcher retired following the 2013 season, there was growing concern over...

Redskins QB Robert Griffin is ready for zone-read option plays, just not too many

During a portion of the 11-on-11 action in Wednesday’s practice for the Washington Redskins, 2012 Robert Griffin III made an appearance. The quarterback took the snap and appeared to execute a handoff but called his own number instead. He then darted through an opening along the line. It looked very much like his 76-yard touchdown run against the Minnesota Vikings two years ago...

For the linebackers, this training camp will be about one thing: replacing London Fletcher Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan and Perry Riley are all pretty much locked into their positions, barring injury, but the Redskins are set for a pretty serious competition for Fletcher’s old spot at middle linebacker.

Who will step up for the Washington Redskins at linebacker?

Over the past seven seasons we’ve enjoyed the luxury of knowing there was an ironman at the heart of the Redskins defense. From the end of the Joe Gibbs era, through Jim Zorn’s two year mantra of “staying medium” and onto Mike Shanahan’s changes in the defensive alignment, it was either London Fletcher or “London Fletcher & Co.” holding down the middle of the field...
