Camp Preview: Washington Redskins special teams enters new era

The past is the past, or at least that’s what we say about the things worth forgetting. With nowhere to go but up, the Redskins special teams unit will begin a new chapter as training camp gets underway. Positions are up for grabs in both the kicking and punting games, and 7th round draft pick Zach Hocker will vie for both punting and place-kicking positions. Hocker should, by...

Why Jordan Reed must prove himself to the Washington Redskins in 2014

The 2013 season for Jordan Reed consisted of just nine games. In them, Reed totaled 499 yards on 45 catches with 3 touchdowns. His rookie season was cut short by a concussion. Fantasy gurus had him on pace for top ten TE numbers if he’d played all sixteen games. 2014 is Reed’s chance to prove that those nine games were not a fluke. Jordan Reed was an unexpected third round draft...

Washington Redskins’ previous growing pains will help Jay Gruden take root

As it stands now the Redskins roster is already wrought with competition, but in just a few weeks even more prospects will be added via the 2014 draft. Over the last four years the franchise has been stockpiling players with unique skill sets, who have had sparse opportunities to apply their craft. Their coming of age is about to catch fire, one way or another. A solid two-thirds...

First thoughts on the Redskins’ upcoming draft; it’s not that important to 2014 season

This story contributed by Scott Hirsch Last year’s draft was far more important for the success of this season than this year’s draft will be (good news – it was a good one minus Jamison). A lot of what happens this year’s draft depends on how the following relative newbies look this Spring  ̶ Tom Compton, Phillip Thomas, Keenan Robinson, Bacarri Rambo, Chris Thompson,...

The best of Jay Gruden is yet to come. Here’s how to get it.

Regardless of how you feel about the free agency selections to date, you have to agree that Gruden clearly sees the problem areas of the Redskins. One of my favorite signings was Hatcher.  Here's a guy that took years to show his best at age 31.  Believe it or not, patience can actually pay off (that's a not subtle message to the fans as well). That's what gets me...

Redskins’ Top 5 tight end options In Free Agency

Well, Fred Davis’ latest escapade certainly has created a need for the Redskins at tight end, now didn’t he? There was a slim chance he could have come back, contrary to some opinions, with a new head coach who likes to use tight ends as a security blanket for quarterbacks. We’ve seen him run 2 TE sets in many different ways. He’s had them in tight on both sides, one to each...

Top 5 Redskins To Be Cut

Photo Credit: Well, now that the coaching situation has been resolved, we move on to what is on everyone’s mind: players to be kept, cut or signed from Free Agency. Some of the players are carrying too large a hit to carry forward, plain and simple. Production versus cap hit will make some players a casualty of this business we love to obsess over. Some of these will have...

Where are the Washington Redskins in the way too early 2014 Power Rankings?

Only one game and two teams remain. For everyone else, the calendar (both in real terms and in the football world) has turned to 2014. Next season is now this season for 30 NFL franchises. Thus, it’s time to start assessing where everyone stacks up heading into next year. Who will bounce back? Who will fall off? Who has made good hires? And who has made bad fires? The regular season...

Redskins biggest disappointments of 2013

I spent last week reviewing a couple of the nice surprises from the 2013 Washington Redskins’ season. The positivity was only temporary, however, as I’m tasked this week with naming the biggest disappointments of 2013. Where to begin? In light of how this past year unfolded, my first instinct is to make this a five-part series. The disappointing elements in a 3-13 season that...

Niles Paul could help solidify Washington Redskins passing game in 2014

Nebraska is where Niles Paul began his nose-to-the-grindstone approach to football, performing many tasks for the team while remaining durable in the process. As a wide receiver he led the team in receiving yardage during both his junior and senior seasons. Afterward he was the third of three straight Cornhuskers to be drafted by the Redskins in 2011. His fourth and fifth round predecessors...

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 Botch Fake Punt Miserably During Thursday Night Loss to Vikings (GIF)

When trying to successfully pull off a trick play in football, communication is key. Every player on the field needs to be on the same page. But when the Redskins tried to catch the Vikings napping with a fake punt Thursday night, Sav Rocca and Niles Paul were not on the same page. They weren’t even in the same book. During the third quarter of Washington’s eventual loss in Minnesota...
