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...
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...
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. But is Jay Gruden a winner for having the balls to make a huge halftime adjustment?

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
Congrats to Mikeyvanilli for knowing the Redskins would come up short in Arizona. Now he gets to make a guest post!

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...

DeSean Jackson — Three catches for 115 yards and a TD. You’d think that making big plays and playing for...
Now that I officially care more about my fantasy team(s) than my favorite team, it figures that they’ll go out and win this one.
Kickoff: 4:25 p.m. ET
Line: Cardinals -3.5 (O/U 45.5)
Our prediction: Cardinals, 22-16

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...
Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 27-17 MNF loss to Seattle.
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...
The Redskins have won six straight regular season games against Seattle, which is proof that stats are ********. There’s no reason to watch this, beyond our obligation as fans to tune in and suffer. Enjoy!
Kickoff: 8:30 p.m. ET
Line: Redskins -7 (O/U 45)
Our prediction: Seahawks, 35-16
Handing out labels following Baltimore’s opening-round sweep of Detroit.
Nelson Cruz — As if he wasn’t enough of a free-agent steal already after leading the league with 40 HRs, he hit two more against Detroit, including the series-winning blow. He now has 16 HRs in 37 career playoff games and slash lined .500/.500/1.000 for the series.
Buck Showalter – Pulled all...
Handing out labels following the longest game in MLB playoff history, an 18-inning, six hour-and-23 minute-loss to San Francisco.
Jordan Zimmermann — Fresh off of a no-hitter, he came within one out of a shutout in a near-must-win playoff situation. What a stud.
Anthony Rendon — Started off 4-4, driving in the Nats only run. Also stole a base and played sharp at third...

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.
This post is provided by our friends at TiqIQ. Remember, you can always buy Nats tickets via Mr. Irrelevant Tickets!
After the heartbreak of 2012, the Nationals are back in the playoffs, and based on the average price for Nationals tickets to the NLDS, fans have higher expectations than two years ago. At an average price of $282 for their three games at Nationals Park, Nats fans...
Here with a guest post for correctly predicting that the Redskins would destroy Jacksonville (those were the days!) is Mr. Irrelevant reader SiPhi, who may have been overserved.
As I sit here, drunk and finally committing to writing this blog post, there are 1:18 seconds remaining in the 3rd quarter [of last week's Thursday night loss to New York]. Kirk Cousins just threw his...
Mr. Irrelevant reader ODA won a guest post for accurately predicting the Redskins’ opening loss at Houston. Here it go.
Mix in a few new ones between “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” and “Orioles Magic” this October.

Handing out labels following Skins games. This time a 45-14 home loss to the Giants.
Mottram brother Ryan — Look how joyful the pregame scene was for this young fan and the Moss man.
The Washington Redskins — What an all-around ******** that was.
Washington was favored by more than 3 and lost by more than 30. That has only happened 7 times in the last 15 years...
At 1-3, all seems lost. At 2-2, all is not yet lost. Go Skins.
Kickoff: 8:25 p.m. ET
Line: Redskins -3.5 (O/U 45)
Our prediction: Redskins, 27-19

Here with a look at one of our favorite fantasies is Mr. Irrelevant contributing writer Bryan Frantz.
Those of you watching the Redskins’ glorious 41-10 beatdown of the Jacksonville Jaguars last week may have seen Wizards point guard John Wall taking in the game at the same time as a very special guest.
Naturally, seeing reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant at a Redskins game with the...
