The most depressing words you will read today about the Redskins

“You can’t rule out the possibility that this dysfunctional franchise would fire Gruden and hire another coach to save Griffin, but the damage otherwise seems complete. Griffin would surprise the football world if he remains the Redskins’ starter into 2016, at least based on merit. Consider this season an epilogue to a dysfunctional period, one that leads to a sequel that carries at least a bit more promise.”

~ Kevin Siefert, RGIII deserves a shot outside of D.C.

As a Redskins fan, I prefer to be in denial about this in hopes for a better outcome.

Washington Redskins Most And Least Expensive Games Against Miami and Atlanta

Any success the Washington Redskins find during the 2015 NFL season will once again start and end with would-be franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III. That could be having fans optimistic or downtrodden, depending on their perspective. Thinking back to last season, when RG3 was generally either hurt or playing poorly, Redskins fan surely wouldn’t be […]

Two things I know about Alfred Morris

Those sharp-eyed bloggers at fatmanwriting.com caught a story that our boy Alfred Morris agrees with ESPN that he is not elite. That comes as a shock to most Redskins fans who, like all fans, see their team as the greatest because their players are the best. Here are two things Hog Heaven observed about Alfred. […]

The name game is the one thing Redskins’ fan base likes about Daniel Snyder

“The Redskins have the NFL’s backing, they have previous rulings and this is the one subject that their fan base almost completely supports.

“A fan base that is sick and tired of the constant losing and dysfunction. A fan base that has no faith in the top officials (outside of Scot McCloughan) within the organization to turn it around on a consistent basis. A fan base that somehow supports the product year-in and year-out in astonishing numbers and passion levels.

“This is the one true connection the Redskins have with their customers and supporters.”

~ Chris Russell’s Blog, “The Redskins will be just fine,” from here.

Washington Redskins Second-Least Traveled Team During 2015 NFL Season

The Washington Redskins are on a quest to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012, when quarterback Robert Griffin III was a rookie. Not a lot has gone right since then, as injuries have derailed their plans of being a contender year-in and year-out. Before training camp begins and roster positions are fought […]

Enough of Keith Olbermann, the Confederate flag and the Redskins

It’s cheap shot season when lazy thinkers like Keith Olbermann (sadly) contrive links of the Washington Redskins team name to the Confederate flag – a symbol to many (me) of the defense of slavery, race supremacy and murder. Well… I have never seen a Redskins flag at a KKK rally. Nor have the Redskins ever […]

NFL.com: The Redskins are a Top 5 QB franchise

Matt Bowen on Redskins passing game: Garcon, Jackson and RGIII

Former Redskins Matt Bowen on what to expect hope for in Washington’s passing game.

Every part of the Redskins offense declined with Coach Jay Gruden’s arrival. Bowen says Bill Callahan and the position switch of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson improve the passing game.

The Cowboys sign former Baylor, former Redskins RB Lache Seastrunk

The Cowboys sign Lache Seastrunk. Redskins fans go Oh My!

Today comes news that the hated Cowboys have signed RB Lache Seastrunk to the roster. That caused a minor conniption among the Redskins faithful. The narrative once was that Seastrunk would be an explosive change of pace to Alfred Morris that no defense could withstand. In a perfect Al Davis world, that might have happened. […]

Will Gruden Haslettize the Redskins turnaround McPlan?

Getting excited during the Redskins preseason is like a freshman boy in high school getting excited about a senior varsity cheerleader smiling at him.  You can dream, but it ain’t going to happen. The Redskins are, well, still the Redskins.  For all the PC nuts, the real insult is not the name, but just how […]

Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan was snubbed for the 2015 Pro Bowl.

Ryan Kerrigan is the new face of the Redskins

Fans want Ryan Kerrigan to grace the cover of their Facebook page more than any other Redskins player. The Redskins created downloadable profile covers that fans may install on their Facebook page. The covers feature six players and it is an informal measure of player popularity. Kerrigan’s was the most downloaded cover by a wide […]

Is Trey Williams another Lache Seastrunk for the Redskins?

Trey Williams walks in Lache Seastrunk’s footsteps. Maybe. Redskins fans started drooling last year when they saw Redskins’ 6th round draft pick Lache Seastrunk’s highlights.  Pound the defense with Morris; fatigue them with Seastrunk’s monster cuts and acceleration. Well that dream ended in the same manner as most Redskins fans dreams, in the dumpster.  Not […]
