Coaches with grand plans came and went and nothing changed. Then Art Briles, born in Rule, Texas, played...

Washington Redskins schedule preview

The first year for the Washington Redskins under Jay Gruden was tumultuous. Their 4-12 record was a one game improvement from 2013, but not many answers appeared for the same questions that have been around the team for multiple seasons. The Redskins saw Robert Griffin III get injured again in 2014 in week two, only to return by week nine, but not with 100% health. The Redskins then...

Recap: Did Robert Griffin III just save his career in Washington?

Given that the Redskins were beaten by double digits, I’d have to say that this was the most entertaining loss of the year. And, let’s be honest, who really cares if the Skins win anyway? MVP – Odell Beckham Jr. Holy crap is this kid good. Not only may he already be the best wide receiver in football, but he’s looking to be one of the best wideouts in NFL history. And I...
