The 10 Most Disappointing Redskins Of The Past 20 Years Or So

Brian Orakpo’s season ended this week, another torn pectoral muscle ending another underwhelming campaign. That likely ends his time with the Redskins, too. He had some decent seasons — including a few Pro Bowl campaigns — but I’ll always think of him as somewhat disappointing, because he wasn’t supposed to be decent. He was supposed to be a dominating sack machine, the...

Redskins Ticket Prices Hit New 5-Year Low

Here to talk about the falling price of Redskins tickets is TiqIQ. As tough as the 2012 playoff loss to the Seahawks was, it seemed that the Redskins might be on the verge of turning the ship around. They had a new, Heisman-winning quarterback, their first playoff appearance in five years and, even to the most pessimistic of Redskins fans, a dim and flickering light at the end of...

Misery Loves Company: Field Trip To A Redskins Bar In Charlotte

I found out this is a Redskins bar by mistake. It was a new place in Plaza-Midwood, our favorite neighborhood in Charlotte. We met friends there on a summer evening for beers and tater tots and at some point during the night it was brought to my attention that this is a place for Washington fans to gather, watch games, and be sad together. The only other Redskins bar I knew of in...

Handing out labels following Skins game, this times a 19-17 win over Tennessee that I did not watch. So let’s hand it over to Twitter user @youlookfoolish. @MrIrrelevantDC DY, Kai, Djax, & Colt are easy winners.

Redskins-Titans Open Thread

Lose this game and the Redskins are immediately regulated to NFL purgatory along with Oakland and Jacksonville. Good luck! How are they favored by five, BTW? They’re on a four-game losing streak and have lost their last three by an average of 17. The Titans must be awesome. Kickoff: 1 p.m. ET Line: Redskins -5 (O/U 45.5) Our prediction: Redskins, 16-15

Ranking All 40 of the 2014 Washington Nationals

We were going to do a Winners & Losers-style post for the NL East champs, but I think this is a little more inclusive. There’s not much rhyme or reason to it, other than ranking the players based on who made the most positive impact this year. Enjoy. 40. Taylor Jordan — Was a member of the Opening Day rotation (filling in for Doug Fister), then went 0-3 with a 5.61 ERA in...

Mr. Irrelevant Classic: The Nats’ Opening Night In D.C.

Sometimes we republish stuff on this blog from the first iteration of Mr. Irrelevant, which was hosted by AOL Journals and is no longer available on the Internet. This is one of those cases, as I don’t feel like writing about the Nats’ NLDS loss to the Giants. Instead, let’s remember their first night in D.C. This was originally published April 15, 2005. My family has lived...

Redskins-Seahawks Winners & Losers

Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 27-17 MNF loss to Seattle. Winners Kirk Cousins — If you compare this to his last outing he looked like Joe Montana. Any way you cut it, 283 yards, two TDs and no picks against Seattle ain’t bad. That first bomb to DeSean Jackson (above) was like a ray of sunshine in monsoon season. DeSean Jackson — His 157 receiving yards...

He now has 16 HRs in 37 career playoff games and slash lined .500/.500/1.000 for the series. Buck Showalter – Pulled all...

The guest post parade marches on! Here with a look at which team owns D.C. is Mr. Irrelevant contributing writer Bryan Frantz. Is Washington, D.C. a baseball town now? No, not quite. But D.C. is not nearly the football city it’s historically been. Fans aren’t necessarily shifting away from the Redskins; instead, it seems they’re paying more attention to the other teams. The...
