Injury Woes Mounting For Washington


The Redskins listed a staggering 17 players on their official injury report for Monday – a fact compounded exponentially by the fact that they play the Giants on Thursday this week. Here is a list of Monday’s official designations: Read the rest of this entry »

Redskins Overcome Injury Woes To Thrash Jags


Things looked bleak at Fed Ex Field early, when Robert Griffin III was carted off the field early in the first quarter; but when your back-up throws a touchdown on his first pass, it helps you move on quickly. Kirk Cousins and the Redskins overcame injuries not only to RGIII, but to receiver Desean Jackson, and a host of others, by putting in one of the most solid performances up and down the line-up in some time. The Jacksonville Jaguars were lit up by Washington 41-10, and were no match for a very determined Redskins bunch.

Its easy to get caught up in individual performances on Sunday – there were many good ones – but the Redskins head coach deserved as much credit as any. Read the rest of this entry »

Mistakes Prove Costly in Redskins’ Season Opener


Were it not for a couple of critical mistakes at critical times for the Washington Redskins on Sunday, they might have endured a better fate than the 17-6 loss that they suffered to the Houston Texans. But as someone really old and wise that I know used to say, “If ifs were skiffs, we’d all be at sea.” Vital fumbles in the Red Zone on a handoff from Robert Griffin III to Alfred Morris, and a Niles Paul drop, proved to be wasted opportunities that Washington simply could not overcome.

“Inexcusable to have turnovers in the Red Zone,” said coach Jay Gruden in the post-game press conference. Gruden was obviously disappointed to see his first game as an NFL head coach, end in a loss. He’s absolutely right though. Paul especially should have to sew a football to his hand for the week to learn the importance of holding on to it. But hey coach, it’s inexcusable to not utilize a running attack that was gashing the Texans all day long too, so I understand your chagrin. Just saying. Read the rest of this entry »

Five Quick Game Thoughts: Ravens


It’s hard to glean much from any NFL preseason game – the stakes are low, and often the tempo and crispness of the game is fractionally lower; but there are things you can look at, and over-analyze, because that’s the modern day sports arena! Here are some quick hitters about the Washington Redskins 23-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night at M&T Bank Stadium:

1. Jason Hatcher is Legit
Arguably the season’s most important offseason acquisition, Hatcher wasted no time in establishing that he was “as advertised” in his first action of the season. On just his second play in the burgundy and gold, Hatcher bull-rushed his way to Joe Flacco for a 12-yard sack; he made Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda look pedestrian at best. Despite offseason knee surgery, and not playing in the first two preseason games, the former Cowboys’ defensive end was solid, and gave Redskins fans a glimpse of what he brings to the table, and the incredible versatility that it gives Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett in defensive packages. Hatcher also played 17 snaps, despite only being slated for 10 – a positive sign that his knee is doing well. Read the rest of this entry »

DeSean Jackson reports to Redskins park for off-season workouts


After spending last week on a vacation, which was previously planned before being released by the Philadelphia Eagles, DeSean Jackson reported to Redskins park on Monday for off-season workouts. Jackson, who signed with the Washington Redskins on April 2nd, is expected to be the game changing receiver and deep threat this upcoming season and beyond.

The workouts at Redskins Park that began last Monday, are voluntary workouts, but it’s great that Jackson is in the facility early putting in the work and meeting his new teammates. The first two weeks of off-season workouts consist of conditioning and strength training, so that means that Jackson didn’t miss any on field work.

Also with new Redskins head coach Jay Gruden on board, the players have to learn the playbook. So despite not being there for the first week of the off-season program, Jackson doesn’t have a lot of catching up to do.

Here’s a pic of Jackson working out today at Redskins Park.

Not only did he workout with his new teammates today, he also caught some passes from Robert Griffin III, which is great to hear. They are working on getting acclimated with one another, as they prepare to shed defenses with the deep ball in 2014.

Expect a very potent Redskins offense in 2014


Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins offense, had a very tough 2013 season. RGIII was coming off knee surgery last off-season, which really hindered his development. He didn’t have the off-season workouts that most quarterbacks and receivers have. He had to spend all of last off-season rehabbing his surgically repaired right knee.

So what can we expect from Robert Griffin III in 2014? I personally expect a healthy and rejuvenated RGIII that will be the comeback player of the year next season. He now has an off-season to develop his game and to start finding a rhythm with his receivers. New Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, who worked with Andy Dalton in Cincinnati, can definitely help RGIII become a much better quarterback. Read the rest of this entry »

Jackson Joins Redskins


DeSean Jackson is a Washington Redskin.

Let that sink in for a second.

I’ll say it again now that you have had time to ready your burgundy and gold brain for the news, DeSean Jackson is a Washington Redskin.

Late Tuesday night, the 27-year old wide receiver agreed to terms with Washington, and instantly became the Redskins’ crown jewel of the 2014 offseason. Anyone in the Redskins Nation twitterverse has been watching with bated breath for the last 24 hours, as rumors swirled, and speculation mounted, as to whether or not a deal with Jackson was, or could get done.
