After an amazing and outright shocking performance in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome last Sunday, Redskins fans aren’t quite sure how to react heading into their Week 2 matchup against the St. Louis Rams. Read the rest of this entry »
Leigh Torrence was signed by the Redskins yesterday, four years after the cornerback left the Redskins to go and ultimately win a Lombardi with the New Orleans Saints. While the move didn’t exactly set Redskins Nation on its ear, it is the third signing in two days that was made to shore up some depth, and that made good football sense.
Torrence won’t likely challenge DeAngelo Hall or Josh Wilson for playing time, but he is a capable back-up, can play nickel, and is an excellent special teams player. He is also a respected veteran in the locker room – something that this now youthful roster can use a little bit of. There are currently more than 35 players under contract with the Redskins, that have less than four years of NFL experience. Read the rest of this entry »
This weekend, Andre was nice enough to take the time to answer questions about his new position change, what he expects from new defensive coordinator Jim Haslett’s defense, as well as who he wants to win Super Bowl XLIV and if he has collaborated in helping prank rookie Pro Bowler Brian Orakpo this week along with much more. He also gives us an update on how he is feeling just coming off of bicep surgery and where he will be watching Super Bowl XLIV from.

The Washington Redskins may not be the best team on paper, but they certainly look like one of the best in the league right now.
After falling very painfully to the Giants in week one, most had written this team off to a 5-11 record. Their chances versus the New Orleans Saints seemed pretty slim. Drew Brees was a much better QB than Eli Manning and had thrown for over 300 yards in week one. The Redskins defense would not be able to stop them, and Jason Campbell would not be any better than his efforts versus the Giants. The West Coast offense was just too hard to learn.

The Redskins struggled a little early on, but finished with a bang to defeat the New Orleans Saints 29-24 at Fed Ex on Sunday. Here are some of the more interesting numbers from the game: Read the rest of this entry »
The Redskins valiantly fought back to erase a 9-point 4th quarter deficit, and beat the Saints 29-24 at Fed Ex Field on Sunday. With the win, the Redskins moved to 1-1, and while it may not have always been pretty, the improvement shown from week one was substantial. Read the rest of this entry »
This week, Clinton Portis will run against a defense that yielded 146 rushing yards (7.3 YPC) against Tampa Bay last week. The Redskins will have to look to equal, or better that, to give themselves a good opportunity to win the game this weekend.
It won’t be easy for Washington, considering that after last week’s offensive performance, its safe to assume that opposing teams are going to make the Redskins beat them in the air and stack the box. Portis will likely see eight and nine man fronts until the Redskins can establish some sort of rhythm in the passing game. Read the rest of this entry »
So, we get a new coach for our new season, and start off with New York, and then New Orleans.
Okay, so the Redskins didn’t exactly knock anyone’s socks off in New York. Probably a good thing since I can’t imagine how knocking someone’s socks off really translates into doing a good job. Whatever the Redskins did, it was certainly the opposite of a good job. Read the rest of this entry »
