Redskins release Chris Chester & Tracy Porter

One year after signing defensive back Tracy Porter, the Washington Redskins released him, having hardly used the often-injured nickel back they took away from the Oakland Raiders in 2014. The Skins also released OG Chris Chester, whom the team signed from the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. Chester started every game for the Skins from 2011-2014, but his release is not a surprise as his...

Quarterly Report: The Washington Nationals After 41 Games

The Washington Nationals are one-quarter way through the 162-game regular season, which makes this a good time to assess how the team and its players have done so far in 2015. And since the Nats are on a five game winning streak, winners of 17 of their last 21 and took over first place in the National League East division just last night by sweeping the New York Yankees, it’s also...

Redskins have had a great offseason & other news

The Washington Redskins have become famous during the Dan Snyder era for having great offseasons that are actually terrible offseasons. By that I mean the team has been known for making lots of big, splashy moves to bring in expensive and older free agents — moves that generate a lot of attention in March and April and very few wins from September to the end of the year. That...

Wizards lose game 6, season is over

It wasn’t good. With the Washington Wizards trailing 94-91, Paul Pierce took a pass from John Wall in the final seconds and, as he leaned away from a defender behind the three-point arc, Pierce put up a desperation shot to tie the game. The ball went in. The crowd went nuts. But it was not to be. Replays clearly showed, I thought, that the basketball was still just barely touching...

Live Microphone: Redskins or Patriots?

“Yesterday the National Football League punished one of its most recognizable players for allegedly having tampered with game balls. I find it stunning that the NFL is more concerned about how much air is in a ball than with a racist franchise name that denigrates Native Americans across our country. The Redskins name is a racist name. So I wish the Commissioner would act as swiftly...
