It was really sad to see the Seattle Seahawks bow out of the playoffs yesterday, and by sad, I mean poetic. I’m sure I’m not the only Redskin fan in #RedskinsNation who like Trent Williams, wants to smack Richard Sherman in his mealy little mouth; so it was a little bit sweet to watch Roddy White blow past him like he wasn’t even there for a touchdown.

Yesterday I hit the Twitter waves for a little crowdsourcing information – I wanted to grab Redskins fans before they dissipate for the offseason, and I wanted to find out what they felt the Redskins most glaring needs are for 2013.
The vast majority of people were looking for help in the secondary, but there were some more detailed responses AND some slightly more creative ones too. Here is a collection of some of the responses: Read the rest of this entry »
Feel like you’ve been kicked in the groin repeatedly? We all do. It’s never a great feeling when you feel like your team played it’s worst game in the last two months, to end the season. Obviously the story of the game was Robert Griffin III – his injured knee – and the decision to leave him in the game. I can’t believe the vitriol that I have heard spewing from many in #RedskinsNation’s mouth:
Well our good friend Cowboy Jeff is at it again, and is there anything quite as delicious as something that pokes fun at the Dallas Cowboys?
The current beauty is a song called Choking: Romo Style – it’s a parody of Gangnam Style, and there are four Redskins mentioned by name. How can it not be fantastic right?
You may have seen this epic piece of Redskin-ness – maybe you haven’t – that’s why I’m posting it!
The pic comes to me via Simone Bett (@SimoneBett on Twitter) and the picture actually belongs to Timothy Butz.
Thanks Simone and Timothy.
You can tailgate normally for a game, or you can do it up right and burn a Tony Romo scarecrow. Read the rest of this entry »
While the Redskins schedule won’t be officially released until probably April, the close of the 2012 season did allow for Washington’s 2013 opponents to be selected. The Redskins will be facing the NFC North and the AFC West next year. Here is a breakdown of the home and away games: Read the rest of this entry »

It’s New Year’s Eve tonight, and like most Redskins fans, I’ll be partying 2012 out, and bringing in 2013 as a fan of the NFC East Division Champs.
Normally on this day, it’s traditional to sing Auld Lang Syne; but I thought given the landscape in Washington these days – maybe we should change the words a bit.
Here you go: Read the rest of this entry »
The Washington Redskins former Editorial Director of Media, Larry Weisman, has a new website!
Some of us sports fans have been reading Larry’s work for what feels like most of our lives. Larry worked for USA Today for 25+ years, and for this Canadian back then, USA Today was easily the creme de la creme of the football news I could get regularly. So wether an article was about the Redskins or not, I was going to read it. I cut my football teeth in the pages of early 80′s USA Todays. Read the rest of this entry »
The Washington Redskins will have five players at this year’s Pro Bowl – three selections and two alternates.
Robert Griffin III, Lorenzo Alexander, and Trent Williams all earned their first career Pro Bowl selections. In Griffin’s case, he becomes just the second rookie quarterback to ever be named to the Pro Bowl – Dan Marino was the other.
London Fletcher and Alfred Morris were also selected as alternates.
The presence of five Redskins players in Honolulu marks a definite change in national opinion. Griffin’s incredible rookie season, combined with peeling off 6 wins in a row, has put Washington back in the public football eye.
The Pro Bowl game itself is and still will be garbage and pointless, but it’s great to see the five guys being recognized – every last one of them deserves the honor bestowed on them.
Somehow a game that started ugly for the Washington Redskins, never really seemed in question for most of the second half, as they steam-rolled over the Cleveland Browns with an impressive 38-21 victory. Here are some quick thoughts on the game:
1) Kirk Cousins – I tweeted before the game that I wasn’t worried about Kirk getting the start because at the end of the day – I see the same great qualities in Kirk off the field that I see in Robert Griffin III – poise, intelligence, and born leadership. That by no means guaranteed success, but I felt that we have been playing with some real swagger, and that our growing confidence would help Cousins do what he needed to do in my opinion – not make any mistakes.
