  • Redskins Draft Options: Safety


    At the start of free agency, the Redskins had several defined needs: cornerback, right tackle, tight end, safety, inside linebacker and maybe a complimentary running back and wide receiver.

    The team miraculously solved most of the crucial needs despite a strict cap penalty, including cornerback, tight end, and went to a four-way battle for right tackle since they couldn’t find a long-term solution.

    Washington was able to retain 12 of their own free agents and brought back players like Fred Davis and DeAngelo Hall, who was cut in the beginning of free agency to save $8 million in cap space, at bargain prices. Winning a division sure changes things around Redskins Park, doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »

    Tough Decisions: The Washington Redskins Secondary, Who to Keep?


    It’s hard to believe, but there truly looks to be “more” competition for roster spots on the Washington Redskins this year than last year. Seriously, other than quarterback, kicker and punter, there’s an abundance of quality players battling for a position. The offensive line, defensive line and receiving corps all could see some changes, but the most intriguing area to me is the defensive secondary.

    Take a look at the names on the roster: Read the rest of this entry »

    Follow Friday – ‘New Redskins’ Edition


    There are are a lot of new faces at Redskins Park these days, especially today as the Redskins kick off the offseason schedule with the Rookie Mini-Camp. Combine that, with the fact that it’s Friday, and that means Follow Friday on Twitter, I thought it would be prudent to put together a (hopefully) comprehensive list of the twitter handles of all the new blood.

    Why Drafting Cousins was a Great Move


    Kirk Cousins isn’t in Washington to take Robert Griffin III’s job. He’s a backup. Yet, he has stirred up more controversy than anyone in the draft. Let’s take a look at a few of the arguments concerning the Cousins pick.

    1) The Redskins should draft best available

    All I heard heading into the draft is that the Redskins need to draft the best available player. Where did all those voices go? Of course they are still around, but now they are up in arms because Shanahan actually did it. It’s not a good practice at all to bash the guy for not drafting best available and then bash him again when he does it. It seems everyone was so busy looking for a great quarterback in the senior bowl that they forgot who gave the best performance, Cousins. The guy is a smart player and an intelligent person. He’s more confident than John Beck and has better awareness on the field(Yes, Beck has no confidence regardless of what he says, remember the Bills game, ok) and more realistic than Rex Grossman (as well as more mechanically sound). Cousins has actually worked to improve his awareness and confidence. Read the rest of this entry »

    The Rise and Fall of the Senior Bowl


    It’s amazing that one game, an all-star game at that, can have an impact on a young college football player’s draft stock. Four years of playing with your peers is obviously nowhere near as telling as one week with all-stars – in a vanilla play environment – with vanilla rules – with vanilla preparations. Removing my tongue from my cheek, here are some guys that really helped themselves last week in Mobile:

    Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
    His only knock is that he isn’t consistently great; but he was great all week at practice, had a sack and three tackles, to post a near-great game as well. He won’t have to wait long to hear his name called at the 2012 NFL Draft, and his impressive Senior Bowl week could prove to make that wait even shorter. Read the rest of this entry »

    RGIII To Declare; How much Would You Pay?


    Let The Love-fest Begin.

    Word is that Robert Griffin III will indeed apply for eligibility for this year’s draft. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen tweeted ‘as per family source’ that Griffin would be informing Baylor head coach Art Briles today, that he was going to ‘turn pro.’ And so the mayhem starts.

    As a Redskins fan, how much do you want to see RGIII in the B&G? Kind of has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »

    2010 NFL Draft – At First Glance


    With the Saints’ inspiring win in the Super Bowl behind us, and the NFL combine looming, draft time is in full swing. For the Washington Redskins, the main question on everybody’s mind is whether they will take an offensive tackle or a quarterback with their first round selection. There is always the possibility that they will take neither, as there will be talented players at other positions, and the Redskins aren’t really set anywhere other than Tight End. However, in all likelihood they will be looking to aid one of the worst offensive lines of all time with an elite left tackle, or groom a young quarterback to be Mike Shanahan’s guy. Both of those positions currently include two players that could interest the Redskins, who own the fourth pick overall in the draft. Read the rest of this entry »
