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...

Redskins Report Card: Week 2 OFFENSE

QUARTERBACK – GRADE A Robert Griffin III looked great in four minutes of work, running twice for 22 yards and two first downs and completing two of three passes. [The incompletion was a beautiful long pass to Desean Jackson that was caught, but mistakenly ruled an incompletion by the refs.] The play on which Griffin got injured was brilliant, as he rolled out, eluded Jaguars LB...

Harrison and others clamoring for Cousins need to back off

It’s obvious that Robert Griffin III is and still will be the guy for the Washington Redskins. In 2012, he went 20-31 for 193 yards, two touchdowns and had no picks in three preseason games. In 2014, he was 13-20 for 141 yards amassed across four games. Although he had only one fumble lost (he had two prior to the regular season of 2012), he had two interceptions, and alarmingly...

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...

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

With each passing day, the Redskins offseason moves sink in a little more. 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...

Washington Redskins have to protect RGIII with first pick

Thanks to the trade that brought RGIII to Washington, the Redskins were left without a first round pick last night. Meaning, they have to take full advantage of their picks tonight. Washington has the second pick of the second round, and if they play their cards right, they can end up with a first-round talent after all. Specifically, Virginia offensive tackle Morgan Moses.

Redskins Free Agency Options: Offensive Guard

The Redskins offensive line was a mess last season. If you’re even a casual fan of the team, you already knew that. Only one lineman played well enough to deserve a starting job in 2014 — LT Trent Williams. Guards Kory Lichtensteiger and Chris Chester, C Will Montgomery and RT Tyler Polumbus were all mediocre or worse. The best and most realistic solution would be to move Lichtensteiger...
