Redskins Preparing for Free Agency


Entering free agency with an abundance of cap space gives the Redskins lots of options to fill plenty of needs, even after re-signing cornerback DeAngelo Hall, defensive tackle Chris Baker, safety Jose Gumbs and franchising linebacker Brian Orakpo.

The Redskins dropped off dramatically after a division title in 2012. Following a 10-6 season they returned back to the NFC East basement in 2013 with a 3-13 record and no first-round pick to show for it.

That, coupled with their $36 million cap penalty for 2012 and 2013, makes this free agency period more important than normal.

Washington was tied with the Chicago Bears in 2013 for allowing the second most points points per game (29.9), which means the defense, specifically the secondary, will be a high priority in this free agent class.

So who might the Redskins target to improve their roster? Let’s take a look at who the team reportedly has their sights set on based on reports from local Redskins beat writers. Read the rest of this entry »

Nationals Turn Back the Clock with a Comeback


As each week goes by, a playoff berth is looking more and more realistic for the Washington Nationals.

The pessimistic D.C. sports fan in me always errs on the side of caution when it comes to expecting postseason production out of the local teams. For the past two decades, the Redskins average one playoff appearance every four years. The Capitals have turned second round playoff appearances into a common occurrence over the past five years. Advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals has been another task altogether. The Wizards had a good run by tinkering with the first round several times in the mid-2000′s prior to Gilbert Arenas’ firearm catastrophe. D.C. United has been Washington’s most successful pro sports franchise since their inception in 1996 but given the level of popularity of soccer in the area in contrast to the “big four” sports, that success doesn’t resonate quite like the rest.

Who’s Laughin’ Now?


For those who read my last blog about Grossman (Redskins Start With Grossman) you’ll note I kind of predicted this last weekend’s performance.

 

For the game, Grossman was 21 of 34 (62% completion) for 305 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions (though one was close) and one fumble. While Antrel Rolle may whine about how the Giants would beat the Redskins “95 out of 100 times” Rolle has failed to recognize that we didn’t beat New York because our offense was better; we beat them because our defense was.

Recapping Day 3 of Redskins Free Agency


The Redskins made their biggest move of the day early Thursday morning by shipping disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2013 5th round draft pick. This ends a dark chapter because Haynesworth is widely viewed as arguably the biggest free agent bust in franchise history, which should say something. Ironically, Haynesworth heads to another team with a 3-4 defense and a coach regarded as even stricter than Mike Shanahan in Bill Belichick.
