Heading into this Sunday’s matchup against the Detroit Lions, a number of phrases will be trotted out by the media and fans that capture the emotion of the situation.

“Do-or-die” will be used to describe the must-win desire to avoid a 0-3 start. There will be “battles,” there will be “aerial attacks” and there will be “bullets” thrown and “bombs” lobbed by both teams.

But all of these terms are ultimately inexact when you consider that some Redskins fans will be otherwise occupied this Sunday, spread around the globe defending all that we hold dear, including the right to play (and write about…and read about) football. Read more »

Robert Griffin III Grows Impressive Beard?

Louisiana is quite the happening place from those that have been there have reported. From jazz to New Orleans to the delicious spicy food, the Bayou State is as unique as any.

And recently, there has been a lot of quacking…for Duck Dynasty. The ever-so-popular show on A&E is all about—you guessed it—ducks.

Located in Monroe, La., the family business of Duck Commander is run by patriarch Phil Robertson. Robertson, believe it or not, was a quarterback at Louisiana Tech behind Terry Bradshaw and actually drew interest from the Redskins (lead writer Brian Tinsman has an in-depth post on that ordeal) before settling in Monroe for a life tending to ducks.

Speaking of Monroe, the University of Louisiana Monroe is visiting Baylor on Saturday in a battle of the dynasties. Bear Dynasty versus Duck Dynasty.

Phil Robertson versus Robert Griffin III—beard edition.

Want to see what No. 10 looked like if he ditched the razor for the next 300 days? @BUFootball has you covered.

Gallery: Redskins-Lions All The Way Back

Lost in the shuffle of the Redskins defense hoping to see better days on Sunday against Calvin Johnson, Reggie Bush and Co., is the unheralded quarterback matchup between two of the best at the position.

With the first pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Lions selected University of Georgia gunslinger (the perfect descriptor for his style of play) Matthew Stafford fresh off of a 25 touchdown junior season. Stafford, who’s overcome injuries and doubters, set an NFL record last season for the most pass attempts (727) in a single season. Robert Griffin III will probably never be asked to throw that many passes and why would he?

He already has more rushing yards in one season than Stafford has in his half-decade NFL career.

Anyway, this “rivalry” (the Redskins won 18 straight games at one point) resumes at FedExField where the Redskins have yet to lose to the Lions since the first turnstile went down in 1997. They didn’t lose at RFK Stadium either. Griffith Stadium? Yeah their record against the Motor City cats was spotless there too.

Here are some great shots of their matchups dating back to 1968 at the famed RFK Stadium:

Week 3 Redskins Fantasy Projections

Having an offense loaded with weapons is not only great for the Washington Redskins chances at climbing out of this early rut, but a big time plus for your fantasy football team. If you were lucky enough to nab a few of your favorite players on your favorite team kudos to you. Your opponents envy you.

The Redskins will need to string together two complete halves if they want to put points on the board, get that elusive first victory of the season and leave you starring at you’re A+ lineup that even Matthew Berry would pat you on the back for.

Before the boys in burgundy and gold take the field on Sunday at FedExField, check out these final point projections and get your lineup set now:

Storylines The Detroit Lions Are Following

Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions will mark the 43rd time the NFC foes square off and the first since 2010. The Redskins (0-2) enter the game with a markedly different “swagger” than previous weeks, as they have fallen under high expectations out of the gates.

As fans have been chirping about all morning after the Philadelphia Eagles loss last night though, the Redskins are still in the thick of the race. But they still have to hold up their end of the bargain for that to become a possibility.

The Lions (1-1) are a complete 180 from where they were in 2008—hitting rock bottom and failing to get one–just one–victory. Their ineptitude set a record for most losses in one season (16).

With a bevy of high draft picks that have actually panned out, wide receiver included, the Lions are hoping to bounce back from an inadequate 2012 season and reach the playoffs once again. That makes two of us.

Anyway, here are some storylines that the Lions are following with a little over 48 hours until kickoff:
