  • REDSKINS VS BENGALS: Junior Galette Not Impressed by Long-Awaited Debut

    Junior Galette was in the lineup for the Redskins in their Sunday game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The athlete’s debut was a long-awaited event for many fans, and it could be argued that Galette didn’t do too badly. A study of the NFL Football Betting odds and lines will tell you that Junior Galette played as well as anyone expected. However, some people expected a little more from him, and Galette came out and said he still had so much more to give. That says something about his spirit.

    He has a drive that Coach Jay Gruden is likely to appreciate in the long run. The Redskins’ coach was signing autographs after the walk-through on Saturday at Joint Base Andrews when he jokingly asked Galette if he would play on Sunday. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Hoping Defensive Additions Translates To Wins on the Field

    After a disappointing 2016 campaign, Washington Redskins focused on improving their defense during the offseason. With a revamped defense, the Redskins are hoping they can compete with their remaining NFC East rivals and make it back to the playoffs. The Redskins betting odds for the 2017 season have them finishing 4th in the NFC East, but the team is hoping for a better result this season.

    While the other defensive signings have gotten most of the attention, Phil Taylor appears to be the most underrated of all their defensive signings.
    Taylor, who signed a future/reserve contract with the team at the end of last season, seems to have found his groove with the Redskins and is looking like their opening day starter at nose tackle.

    Taylor, who was drafted in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, seems to have finally found a home in Washington after bouncing around the league for most of his career.  Read the rest of this entry »

    Washington had a disappointing 2016 NFL season. While key injuries may have hindered the Redskins’ chance of competing against their NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, ultimately they fell short in the grand scheme of things. For many Redskins fans, it felt like Jay Gruden’s men had failed to build, or improve on the 2015 campaign.

    But the 2016 season has been and gone. Time to focus on the future, and can Washington challenge at the top of the division in the coming months? With a few favorable results in the opening few weeks of the year, Gruden’s side could hit the ground running, and early momentum could help the Redskins pull away from Dallas and New York in the NFC East title race.

    Jordan Reed Back to Save Redskins from Shame

    Who knew the Washington Redskins would miss tight end Jordan Reed this much? Things haven’t been going too well. And even though it’s still the preseason, the Redskins betting odds are still a little worrisome.

    Redskins fans breathed a sigh of relief when they learned that the Pro Bowl tight end had been removed from the PUP list on Sunday. That means fans can look forward to seeing him in practice sometime in the week.

    The news was actually pretty big and it made Sunday that much brighter for anyone that cares about this season for the Redskins. Reed hasn’t been available since before the training camp. Read the rest of this entry »

    Quarterback Colt McCoy Feels Ready to Step Up for Washington Redskins

    There is a high likelihood of backup quarterback Colt McCoy becoming one of the most valuable members of the Washington Redskins offense. It is public knowledge that there have been justified talks about the critical roles of slot man Jamison Crowder and quarterback Terrelle Pryor Sr. who is now a wide receiver. However, Colt McCoy whom is playing in his 8th season is one play shy of having the fortunes of the Redskins in his hands. Such possibilities are likely to influence the updated Washington Redskins betting odds for week one.

    This is a fact not only this year but also come next season.

    Starter Kirk Cousins marks his second season as the franchise player of the team. This means that Kirk will be a free agent at the end of the season, three years straight he has been a free agent; except next year it will cost 35 million for the tag. This gives McCoy an even higher probability of featuring in any future plans.

    McCoy mentioned that he felt good and that he was having one of the best camps he can remember. He was born in Texas and will be having his 31st birthday in September. McCoy added that he was very comfortable with the place and state that they were in as a team considering that they were in camp.

    McCoy did not display a luster performance in the Washington Redskins’ 23-3 loss to the equally good Baltimore team, a match that was played as a preseason opener. He went for 6 for 13 for 40 yards and this was with an interception. Nonetheless, Colt has been exemplary in the 2-minute long drills that the team had in Richmond where they spent a whole 3 weeks.

    The Washington Redskins’ camp came to an end on Monday and are set to resume their workouts today at their Ashburn home.

    McCoy is aware that he is not a threat to Kirk Cousins who is going to earn $23.94 million. For Kirk will become the very first quarterback to successfully play under the franchise tag for two years straight. Similarly, McCoy is just one play shy of being called on by the team to produce. It will be very interesting to watch how this scenario unfolds this year and even in the future.

    McCoy said that he was very confident and ready to come off the bench and deliver for his team. Colt went on to say that he is confident in his ability to aid Cousins in being one of the best players this year and is his main focus. McCoy is not very keen on what happens afterwards.

    Colt said that he felt very blessed to be going into his eight season, this being his 3rd year in Washington. He feels that every part of his being is exactly where it is supposed to be and that he is indeed at the right place.

    The loss of Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson to free agency have put the Washington Redskins in motion to rebuild their receiving corps. In any case, Crowder and Pryor who are their best targets figure to incorporate injured tight end Jordan Reed. Jordan has missed the entire camp owing to an injury.

    Pryor is the only one who is now healthy, this makes a learning opportunity for the young players and the veteran.

    McCoy said that there he had no time to worry about next year yet the current season is still ongoing.

    He added that the current moment is his focus and he is looking forward to enjoying his camp while trying to make guys around him improve their game.

    Redskins Preparing for Season Now that Training Camp is Over

    The Washington Redskins ended training camp on Sunday, and have now turned their full attention to getting ready for preseason games as the season opener fast approaches. If you want to bet on Washington this season, check out the Redskins betting lines to win.

    After closing camp, head coach Jay Gruden said he felt the team had a very good camp and he is excited to see how it translates on the field. Gruden said they got to evaluate a lot of talent and they will continue doing so until the end of the preseason when they have to make their final cuts.

    A few Washington players suffered injuries during camp, which means the team will have to evaluate more players to figure out which ones can fill in for their injured players on a temporary basis. Players like DeAngelo Hall, Sua Cravens, Josh Doctson, and Jamison Crowder are expected to be kept out of preseason games to give them time to recover from their injuries.

    DeAngelo Hall Mentoring Rookie Holsey

    The Washington Redskins drafted Josh Holsey in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, hoping he can help improve their secondary. After he was drafted, Holsey’s cornerbacks coach with the Auburn Tigers, placed a call to his former Atlanta Falcons teammate DeAngelo Hall, asking him to take care of the rookie. If you want to bet on the Redskins or other NFL games, check out the best NFL lines thanks to years of experience in the sports betting industry.

    While speaking with the Redskins official website, Hall said he has been keeping an eye on Holsey and thinks he is a hell of a football player that can play in the NFL. He also added that since the Redskins secondary is so deep, he might not get a lot of playing time unless a few players get hurt.

    Hall suffered a season ending injury last season and hasn’t been able to participate in training camp. Despite not being able to practice with his teammates, Hall has been helping Holsey out from the sidelines, getting him ready for the start of the season.

    Holsey told reporters that Hall has taken him under his wing and has been trying to teach him everything he has learned over the years. He added that Hall has been picking up on things he is doing wrong but doesn’t notice, and has been pointing them out to him, which has already been paying dividends.

    Even though Hall has been converted to a safety, he spent the first 11 years of his NFL career as a cornerback, making three Pro Bowl appearances.

    Hall said he is trying to impart some of the wisdom he has acquired during his time in the league to help Holsey become a better player. He also said he is pleased that their conversations haven’t been one-sided because Holsey has been receptive to the mentoring and ask as many questions as he can.

    Hall asks Holsey what he sees on certain plays and what he was thinking at the time, then tells him what he would have done in the same situation, and how to put himself in a position to make a play.

    The relationship between the two seems to be paying off because Holsey has made some great plays in training camp. The rookie had two interceptions on Friday. Holsey credited his improvement in training camp to Hall and the pointers he has been giving him.

    While Hall and Holsey have formed a great relationship, the players came into the league under different circumstances. Hall was a highly rated cornerback coming out of Virginia Tech, and only seven players were selected ahead of him. Holsey on the other hand was one of the last players taken in the draft, and only 10 players were selected after him.

    Holsey does have something in common with Hall, which is the fact that they both have a history of knee injuries. Since Holsey was one of the last players taken in the draft, the team won’t hesitate to release him if he doesn’t continue to impress during the preseason. His best shot may be at the practice squad.

    E.J. Bibbs Hopes to Land Spot on Redskins Final Roster

    The Washington Redskins made tight end E.J. Bibbs their first training camp signee last Thursday, after an impressive showing during his tryout. With Bibbs, the Redskins now have six tight ends on the 90-man roster. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the NFL odds for the Washington Redskins.

    After he earned the roster spot, Bibbs got to practice with his new teammates. He told reporters that he thought he was just coming in to try out and expected a pretty easy day. However, after making the team, he had to practice after the tryouts as well. Although he admitted he was a little tired, he acknowledged that the rigorous workouts and practice are part of football.

    Opportunities to sign with a team after workouts don’t come around very often, unless there is an injury or injuries. In Bibbs’ case, the injuries are to Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, who is currently on the physically unable to perform list, and Vernon Davis, who is nursing a hamstring injury.
