Things are spiraling out of control in Washington. The Redskins are 3-7 coming off an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. There has been plenty of blame to go around. Quarterback Robert Griffin III dished some it on Sunday following the loss. But in the end the head coach always has the final say. And boy, did he!
Jay Gruden addressed many topics about the loss, but...

Entering the offseason there was a lot of uncertainty from at the inside linebacker positions for the Redskins. London Fletcher had retired from after spending the last seven of his 16-year career with the Redskins. Perry Riley, Jr. was a free agent and Keenan Robinson, who was tagged the heir apparent to Fletcher, hadn't played much in his first two seasons after spending each season...

Palmer has not played since injuring a nerve in his throwing shoulder in the season opening win over San Diego. He flew to Denver for more treatment on Friday.
All three quarterbacks were active for Arizona. Drew Stanton, the starter...

The old-as-sports-itself debate over how hard to take a loss became Topic A with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, with first-year coach Jay Gruden saying he will look into the laughing and joking among some of his players following the team's latest defeat.
''I'm hoping that nobody was jovial after a loss,'' Gruden said.
Offensive captain Trent Williams and receiver Pierre...

THE GAME TURNED WHEN…
It never really turned. Seattle was in control of this game from the first possession and Washington never threatened them. Yes, the Skins did cut the lead to 17-10 at one point, but the Seahawks never seemed worried, the Skins never seemed confident and if it wasn’t for all the sloppy penalties committed by Seattle, this game would have been a laugher...
In the first half of Monday night's Seattle/Washington game the Redskins defense appeared to be almost reacting to the Seahawks effectively letting Seattle set the tone of the half. If they are going to have a chance to steal a win they are going to have to figure out a way to turn that around. What they basically have to do is start flying around on defense and dictate the pace...
In the third quarter Redskins linebacker Perry Riley laid a perfect square up hit on Seattle Seahawks tight end Luke Wilson.
You can hear the collision, as Riley stopped Wilson in his tracks bringing him down for the stop.
No helmet-to-helmet ruling there...
While expectations are high for the Redskins this year, training camp hasn’t been all sunflowers and daisies. This is still a young team with a first time head coach. There are going to be some bumps in the road. At the same time, there have been a lot of positives to come out of Richmond, Virginia over the last week. Here are some of the reactions, both good and bad, from those...
What happens when illogical sports fandom is taken too far? You strive to receive 22 signature tattoos from every Washington Redskins starter.
That is exactly what 41-year-old Charlie White is attempting during the team’s training camp. The Skins superfan is asking each starter to sign his arm, which then is transferred into permanent tattoo ink.
“I want all 22 starters,” White...
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.
Right now, one day before training camp gets going, Keenan Robinson looks to...
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...
The Redskins have spent the first week of free agency shoring up the defensive side of the ball in an effort to support their offensive counterparts in a division that has not seen a team repeat as back to back NFC East Champions since the Eagles won four division titles in a row from 2001-2004. The Redskins have made some substantial upgrades on the defensive line, at cornerback...
Perry Riley, a 2010 4th round pick, has been starting for the Redskins at middle linebacker for about 2 ½ years, since the middle of the 2011 season. He was about an average starter in both 2011 and 2012, for the first 1 ½ year and a half of his career, but he struggled mightily in his contract year last year, grading out as Pro Football Focus’ 46th ranked middle linebacker out...
A quiet day around the NFL as focus begins to shift from free agency to the upcoming NFL draft. Much attention surrounds ongoing Pro days at campuses across the nation, today the University of Missouri in the spotlight. Reportedly 31 of the 32 NFL franchises were in Columbia today, the only one not represented, the Redskins.
According to the NFL Players Association, the Redskins...
