  • Redskins: Will The Real Jamison Crowder Please Stand Up?


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    As the Redskins head into the weekend, and a giant NFC East match up with the Dallas Cowboys, the team is rife with uncertainty. Their offensive line has been flattened by injuries, their defensive secondary has been plagued by the same, and their offense continues to struggle despite decent play from quarterback Kirk Cousins. At the heart of those offensive woes has been the performance of the Redskins receivers – or lack thereof. Jamison Crowder has played no small role in those struggles, and the Washington Redskins betting odds continue to reflect the lack of a legitimate receiving threat in the Redskins arsenal.

    It was obvious when Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson were both let go in the offseason, that Washington’s receiving corps would look very different in 2017. The Redskins hoped that Josh Doctson would rebound from a rookie season on injury reserved and step into a much bigger role for the team. Washington also signed Terrelle Pryor with the mind that he could be a big-bodied presence and a solution in the red zone. Both receivers have been disappointing so far, but in reality, their performances have not been all that surprising.

    What has been surprising is that the one holdover from last year’s starting receiver crew may actually be the receiver who has struggled the most. In his first two seasons with the Redskins, Jamison Crowder was electric in the slot, and the Redskins were hungry to find innovative new ways to get him the ball.

    Decimated Redskins Roster to Face Surging Rival Cowboys


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    When a coach has to change a Wednesday practice to a walk through in an already short week, you know that the injuries have officially piled to the ceiling. That’s exactly what Jay Gruden did yesterday, on the heels of seven MORE Redskins being hurt in the 34-24 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. The multitude of injuries have obviously caused a change in the betting odds for the Redskins games, and they pose a challenge that will frankly be hard to account for this week against Dallas.

    As if losing convincingly to Philadelphia and losing most hope of winning the NFC East division this year wasn’t enough, Washington was once again devastated by injuries over the course of the game for the third game in a row. This week, it was the offensive line that took it on the chin. Read the rest of this entry »

    Throwback Thursday – Lombardi and Jurgensen Beat Noll’s Steelers


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    It was on this day, October 26th in 1969, that a Redskins team coached by the late, great Vince Lombardi defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 14-7.

    Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen scored both Redskin touchdowns, one with his feet, and one with his arm. The second, a 17 yard pass to Charley Taylor.

    Wallpaper Wednesday: Josh Norman – The Dark Knight Returns


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    It’s Wallpaper Wednesday, and a banged up Redskins roster got a bit of good news yesterday, that cornerback Josh Norman would be returning to practice.

    Norman fractured a rib and punctured a lung in Week 4.

    Being cleared to practice doesn’t ensure that he will play against the Cowboys this week, but it certainly broadens the possibility. And with Dez Bryant on the docket, the Redskins secondary could use the help. The Redskins defense has allowed 378 yards per game in Norman’s absence.

    Throwback Thursday Bonus Edition: 30 Years Ago Today – The Replacements


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    On October 19th, 1987, ten Dallas Cowboy players crossed the picket line to play in a Monday Night Football game during an NFL strike. They were 8 point favorites against a Redskins team that was still using 100% replacement players. The replacement Redskins team spanked the Cowboys 13-7 right in Texas Stadium, thusly creating one of the greatest underdog victories in NFL history, one of the most memorable Monday Night Football games in NFL history, and the inspiration for the movie, The Replacements.

    They weren’t garden variety players that crossed that picket line either – Hall of Famers Tony Dorsett and Randy White were among the group, as was starting quarterback Danny White.

    Rookie Jonathan Allen Done For The Season


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The staunch Redskins defense received some tough injury news yesterday – rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is done for the remainder of the 2017 season. Allen suffered the injury in the second half of Washington’s 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

    Allen sustained a Lisfranc sprain, and although at first Redskins head coach Jay Gruden seemed optimistic about a quicker return, news broke yesterday from several outlets that Allen will require surgery, and is indeed done for the remainder of 2017.

    The NFL and Head Trauma: Deandre Levy Wants to Eliminate Full-Contact Practices


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    What is the NFL to do about head injuries? It is a bone of contention that will not go away, and it obviously shouldn’t, not when the health of athletes is on the line. Linebacker DeAndre Levy’s recent suggestion has a lot of people buzzing.
    NFL athletes make suggestions all the time, but the one from Levy could have an impact on Redskins betting odds for the season, especially if it is put into practice. If you haven’t heard, Levy participated in a congressional forum constituting members of the House Energy, Commerce, and Judiciary Committees.

    The linebacker’s suggestion was that the NFL should eliminate full-contact practices. It matters that an athlete like Levy is bringing this idea to the table because that gives it more weight.

    Levy made mention of the fact that he was already aching when he went into the game on Sunday because collisions he encountered on Wednesday and Thursday during practice had left him feeling significantly sore. Read the rest of this entry »

    Banged Up Redskins Secondary To Face Tough Eagles Offense In Critical Match Up


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Week Seven could be a make-or-break week for the Washington Redskins’ 2017 Playoff aspirations. Every game is important in a 16-game season – every divisional game even more so. When you’re facing the only team ahead of you in the divisional race, and losing gives them both wins this season and the first tie breaker, it’s pretty safe to say that the Redskins hopes for winning the NFC East this year could very well come down to the result of this early week 7 game. Beating the Eagles won’t guarantee them success, but losing to them could drastically affect the Redskins betting odds of getting to the playoffs via a divisional first place.

    That’s no small feat given that the game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field, and the Redskins secondary could potentially have more holes than swiss cheese. Read the rest of this entry »
