It was a big win for the Redskins on Sunday over the Charger – they kept pace with the rest of the NFC East. Here is a look at some of the more interesting statistics and numbers from Washington’s thrilling 30-24 overtime victory: Read the rest of this entry »
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos rolled all over the Washington Redskins in the second half with 38 unanswered points, en route to a 45-21 destruction at Mile High Stadium. Last week the Redskins offense showed signs of coming around against the Chicago Bears, but on Sunday against the Broncos, they appeared to have hibernated. Or maybe they were just stymied from the top down.
Enter offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Why, oh why, do people try to put square pegs in round holes? This isn’t the first time that Redskin fans have been left scratching their heads as to what in the aqua blue hell was going on in Das Wunderkind’s brain – but it’s the first time for a while, that one might scratch hard enough to draw blood. I did anyway, and I may just have to remove the Redskins from my NFL football betting list if their offense continues to be completely paralyzed by their coordinator’s need to treat it like a toy. It’s a costly betting oversight most weeks. Read the rest of this entry »
Is there anything worse for a Redskins fan, than losing to the Dallas Cowboys? How about betting online AND losing a game largely due to the play of the special teams units? Sure there were plenty of other things to point to in Sunday’s 31-16 loss to the Cowboys, but you can’t give up (ostensibly) 14 points on special teams, leave three on the board, and not notice that it’s 17 points in a 15-point loss.

It was a big win for the Redskins on Sunday, despite being just the fourth game of the regular season. Going into the bye week at 1-3 might not seem all that majestic, but with the Eagles and Giants at 0-4, and the Cowboys at 2-2, Washington is very much still in the thick of things in the NFC East thanks to the victory, despite the slow start.
Here is a look at some of the more interesting, and telling numbers and statistics from the Redskins 24-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Most of these stats are from the official NFL stats, and I got the NFL betting lines at TopBet.eu Sportsbook. Read the rest of this entry »

Walker also explains how the Redskins will prevent a sophomore slump for Robert Griffin III and gives his bold prediction on how Alfred Morris will do in 2013.

Feel like you’ve been kicked in the groin repeatedly? We all do. It’s never a great feeling when you feel like your team played it’s worst game in the last two months, to end the season. Obviously the story of the game was Robert Griffin III – his injured knee – and the decision to leave him in the game. I can’t believe the vitriol that I have heard spewing from many in #RedskinsNation’s mouth:
The Washington Redskins will have five players at this year’s Pro Bowl – three selections and two alternates.
Robert Griffin III, Lorenzo Alexander, and Trent Williams all earned their first career Pro Bowl selections. In Griffin’s case, he becomes just the second rookie quarterback to ever be named to the Pro Bowl – Dan Marino was the other.
London Fletcher and Alfred Morris were also selected as alternates.
The presence of five Redskins players in Honolulu marks a definite change in national opinion. Griffin’s incredible rookie season, combined with peeling off 6 wins in a row, has put Washington back in the public football eye.
The Pro Bowl game itself is and still will be garbage and pointless, but it’s great to see the five guys being recognized – every last one of them deserves the honor bestowed on them.
Yeah, yeah, yeah – this is a day or six, and probably a couple of dollars short. The cool answer is that it took this long to work out the alcohol consumed during the Redskins thrilling 38-31 victory over the Cowboys last Thursday. The honest one is that I actually just forgot to actually POST the blog after I had written it. (Hey, maybe the alcohol can actually be blamed!)
I digress, here’s five no-longer-quick-thoughts on the game: Read the rest of this entry »
It was good for the Redskins and for Redskins fans, to get back on the winning side of the ledger this week. Facing a struggling team, and coming off an extra week off, the Redskins were expected to do exactly what they did on Sunday – dismantle the Philadelphia Eagles. Here are some quick thoughts about the game — Read the rest of this entry »
