The three most important free agents the Washington Redskins need to bring back

Take a quick look at the Redskins’ free agents. Impressive? No, not at all. Of the 24 free agents, many will leave Washington. Really, every single one of them could leave, and nobody would shed a tear. Aside from Brian Orakpo – and maybe Santana Moss – we aren’t talking about classic and beloved players who will be missed by Redskins Nation. And even Orakpo, who made $11...

Redskins Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down: Week Four

There we go.  There was our good ole 2013 Washington Redskins.  They’ve been fooling us a bit of late, but they returned to form last night, with frequent turnovers, a porous defense, and a complete lack of discipline.  That’s the team we have all come to know and loathe.  In our own home, division rival New York Giants came to play football, while Washington came to prove...

Five takeaways from the Washington Redskins loss to the New York Giants

“This was a total team debacle.” – Jay Gruden, last night I couldn’t have put it better myself. The Washington Redskins got pounded by the New York Giants 45-14 at home Thursday night. There really weren’t any positives to take away from this one. A team that was just a handful of plays from being 3-0 now finds itself 1-3 and very banged up. It’s well within the realm...

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.

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

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...
