  • Wallpaper Wednesday: DJ Swearinger IS the Grim Reaper


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Given his performance on Sunday, and his ever increasing love affair with Redskins Nation, it seemed only appropriate to make DJ Swearinger the subject this week’s Wallpaper.

    The young safety is the talk of the town. For his play, for his colorful off field antics, and for his constantly referencing Redskins great Sean Taylor.

    Back in the day, THN did a Sean Taylor Reaper wallpaper. We took it down out of respect when he passed, as it somehow just seemed too macabre. So in the spirit of that, I offer you DJ Swearinger as The Grim Reaper.

    Redskins: DJ Swearinger Injects Swag into Washington Defense, Earns the Love of Fans


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    DJ Swearinger is all over the place, or at least his name seems to be. In no small part due to the lick he put on Marshawn Lynch in the Redskins dismantling of the Raiders. The Redskins odds for the next game aren’t going to change just because everyone of Swearinger’s hit, but maybe they should, given what Washington’s defense did to Oakland on Sunday night.

    Just a year ago, the Redskins were ranked 28th in terms of defense. Washington Senior Vice President of player personnel Doug Williams, believes that the rest of the NFL has a good reason to now fear the Redskins’ defense. And after three games, the Redskins have climbed to an impressive 5th in net yards allowed, 4th in rushing yards, and 9th in points per game.

    New additions have made an impact, but none more than Swearinger – literally and figuratively. Read the rest of this entry »

    By The Numbers: Redskins Dominate Raiders on NFL Sunday Prime Time


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The numbers and statistics from the Redskins 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday were gobsmacking. Sometimes you can’t get a feel for a game just by looking at the numbers. Sometimes, you can tell everything you could possibly hope to know.

    Redskins Nation Choose Their Players of the Game Versus The Raiders


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    There were a lot of great individual performances to choose from in the Redskins dominant 27-10 win over the Oakland Raiders. It would be easier to list the players that didn’t play well, than the players who did. Why not just ask Redskins Nation, and see what they had to say?

    Redskins Hoping Montae Nicholson Can Fill The Void at Safety


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    When Washington drafted Montae Nicholson with the 123rd pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, it’s doubtful that even the most optimistic of Redskins’ staff imagined him playing in week two of his first regular season. Maybe not even Nicholson himself. And yet against the Rams on Sunday, that’s exactly where the rookie out of Michigan State found himself.

    Nicholson was likely viewed more as a project when he was drafted. In college, he was a track athlete as well as football player, and he has great athletic ability. The Redskins love the speed he possesses at 6’2″ and 216 pounds; they just probably didn’t envision having to call on it so quickly.

    In 2015, Nicholson helped Michigan State make the college playoffs when he led the team with 83 stops and three interceptions. He’s also an intelligent guy having majored in engineering. He definitely possesses a lot of upside.

    The Redskins saw the player they drafted in the fourth round as a project that could benefit from playing with the likes of DJ Swearinger and DeAngelo Hall. Read the rest of this entry »

    Source: Su’a Cravens via Facebook.

    The rumours and innuendo surrounding wether or not Su’a Craven would be re-joining the Washington Redskins for this season, were obviously answered last week. The young strong safety had been struggling with some personal and family issues, and that subsequently affected his desire to play football. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Offensive Line Powers Running Game Against Rams


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins were held to 64 total rushing yards in their season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles; it was one of the key reasons the team lost 30-17. A week after the embarrassing loss, the Redskins turned to their running game to lead them past the Los Angeles Rams, 27-20.

    This week, NFL betting sites have the Redskins as underdogs against the Oakland Raiders, but the Redskins believe they have what it takes to get the win.

    During the offseason, Washington coach Jay Gruden emphasized that he wanted to have a more balanced offense, after relying heavily on quarterback Kirk Cousins last year. It was difficult to get their run game going against the Eagles in their season opener because they fell behind quickly.

    Against the Rams, the Redskins could run the ball more since because they didn’t have to deal with a big deficit, and they finished the game with a healthy 229 net rushing yards. Washington should be able to get some yards on the ground this week because the Raiders allowed the Jets to rush for 126 yards last week, and have been shaky on defense this season. They’re averaging 4.8 yards per carry (against) in the first two games, and will have to do better than that against the Redskins. Read the rest of this entry »

    Can Bill Callahan Keep Redskins From Sliding into Crisis Mode


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Bill Callahan is a great coach. Everyone in the NFL respects him and for good reason, but did he bite off more than he can chew when he came to Washington? The Redskins are just one game into the season, and already appear to be heading in the wrong direction. This isn’t the time to worry about NFL Week 2 Picks. After managing just 240 total yards and posting four painful turnovers against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Redskins have a lot to work on offensively.

    Offensive line coach Bill Callahan gets a lot of money. There are few assistant coaches in the NFL that take home as big a cheque as Callahan. So Callahan has a lot to prove. And unfortunately for him, the challenge is nothing to scoff at. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Facing Tough Test this Week Against Rams


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins kicked off the 2017 season with a gut-wrenching loss to their division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles. The team now has to put their disappointing season opening loss to the Eagles behind them, and turn their attention to their week two opponents, the Los Angeles Rams.

    Since they were picked by many experts to finish fourth in the NFC East, the Washington Redskins season winning predictions are still on track.

    The Rams are coming off a season opening win against the Indianapolis Colts. Sean McVay, the Redskins 2016 offensive coordinator, gets his first chance to go up against his former team as the head coach of the Rams. The game between the two teams is scheduled to start at 4:25 PM. ET.

    McVay, who turned 31 in January, is the youngest head coach in NFL history. At the same 31-years-old, Washington coach Jay Gruden was coaching in the Arena League as the head coach of the Orlando Predators. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Nation Unimpressed With Redskins’ Effort Against the Eagles


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    It only took one game, but one thing was quite certain on the social network airwaves on Sunday, Redskins fans were downtrodden. While 1/16th of a season does not a season make, it was apparent that the fan base saw next-to-nothing that would inspire even a glimmer of hope in Washington’s 30-17 loss to the Eagles.

    It started bad. It finished bad. What happened in between was mediocre at best. The defense played better than the offense, but the Vienna Boys Choir might have put in a better offensive showing, so that isn’t saying much. And when the dust settled after the game, it was clear that this fan base is beat up. Tired of losing. Tired of fielding an embarrassing product. Tired of turning their head when they answer, “I’m a Redskins fan.” Tired of spending money on a product that doesn’t ever seem to do anything but go in big, bad circles. And it didn’t take sixteen games, it took one.

    Here’s a collection of reactions to yesterday’s game from THN’s Twitter account. I actually thought that the mood was so somber that I would try and lighten the mood a bit. I tweeted:

    Here are the sobering results – caution, some tweets are NSFW language – they weren’t removed because this is about the raw emotions of Redskins Nation: Read the rest of this entry »
