Brandon Meriweather Is Not An Alien

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 18, 2014 – 1:14 pm



Brandon Meriweather is not the Predator. But the long-haired safety will return to Washington to track footballs like a heat-seeking alien bent on destroying Jesse Ventura, Carl Weathers and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Sorry, I love that movie. Yes, I can spell Schwarzenegger without consulting the internet.

DeAngelo Hall Will Recruit Free Agents

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 20, 2014 – 10:57 am



Picture this.

DeAngelo Hall walks to the door, adjusts his tie and softly knocks. It’s a pleasure to be here. I can’t wait to tell you about a team on the rise. These mashed potatoes are phenomenal. Why yes, Mrs. Orakpo, I will have have a second piece of pie. Let me tell you why Brian should pick the Redskins. Your son will be in good hands. I’ll call you soon.

After a stellar 2013 season convinced the Redskins to re-sign Hall, the cornerback said his first order of business will be to recruit from a talented class of free agents.  Read more »

What Went Right / Wrong: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 31, 2013 – 1:26 pm

The last game of the 2013 season was a wet and miserable 20-6 loss to the New York Giants. The Redskins defense limited an offense playing without it’s starting quarterback and top two receivers in the second half, but the offense could not score a touchdown.

Let’s take a look back at what went right and wrong at New York.


Highlight: Reed Doughty intercepts Curtis Painter in the end zone.

What went right: The captain in coverage.

-The Giants line up in a shotgun set with a running back in protection, a tight end and an H-back on the left and a wide receiver on the right.
-The Redskins show their base 3-4 alignment and initially rush four defenders.
-Three linebackers are singled up in man coverage. Rob Jackson shadows Bear Pascoe , and Perry Riley Jr. eyes Peyton Hillis before adding pressure.
-London Fletcher, in the last game of a 16-year career, covers tight end Brandon Myers.
-Barry Cofield splits a double team and pressures Painter into throwing. Read more »

What Went Right And What Went Awry: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 2, 2013 – 12:36 pm

The Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention in a 24-17 loss to the Giants on Sunday night composed of a hot start, a second-half collapse and a controversial spot at FedExField .

Through most of the first half, the Redskins dictated the game. Let’s take a look at what went right on a few big plays and what went awry for Washington.

Highlight: Alfred Morris plunges into the end zone from one yard out to score the Redskins’ first opening drive touchdown of the season.

What went right: In football parlance, this is called putting a hat on a hat. Washington lines up in a power running formation with an extra tackle, a tight end, an H-back and a fullback. Right guard Chris Chester pulls to his left, and the left side of the line blocks down right to compensate. Trent Williams moves Cullen Jenkins out of position. Logan Paulsen occupies Mathias Kiwanuka, and Chester comes across the line to chip in. Tom Compton gets to the next level, taking out linebacker Jon Beason. Morris cuts into the gap created by Williams,  Chester and Paulsen and dives across the goal line. Read more »

Storylines To Follow In 2013: WAS-PHI

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 5, 2013 – 12:09 pm

Last year when the Washington Redskins were sitting at 3-6 entering the Bye Week, almost no one outside of the DMV predicted they would climb out of the division cellar.

One seven-game winning streak later and those who said such things are now biting their tongues reading about the defending NFC East champs.

With the Philadelphia Eagles on the slate twice in the last two months of the season, the Redskins should have never been counted out. After all, the Redskins have recorded more wins against the Eagles (81) than any other team.

As part of the NFL’s opened weekend extravaganza, the 79th edition of Redskins-Eagles will be on Monday Night Football. Here are just some storylines to follow.

2012 Rewind: Sweep Of NFC East Rival

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 22, 2013 – 3:15 pm

Since 1934 the Redskins and Eagles have squared off 156 times and unlike the heated rivalry with the Cowboys and the longstanding tension with the Giants, the Redskins have won over 50 percent of their games against their Pennsylvania counterparts.

Similar to the inaugural installment of Redskins-Eagles in 1934, the Redskins swept in 2012 thanks to a clipping of the Eagles wings in a 31-6 victory in Week 11 and a seven point victory in Week 16 that sprung them into a do-or-die matchup with the Cowboys a week later.

While the Eagles had been the Redskins worst nightmare throughout the early 2000’s, one man didn’t even blink when Philly came to town last year–Robert Griffin III.

2013 Draft Members Have Chance To Start

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 29, 2013 – 12:35 pm

Unlike last year’s draft where the Redskins were determined to move up from their original draft slot of sixth overall to draft one of the biggest college prospects, the team stood pat during the 2013 NFL Draft and let everyone know that they weren’t going anywhere.

They didn’t move and they didn’t drop back; they kept their seven draft picks and added depth and addressed need at the same time.

Standing firm with what we currently have has been a recurring theme this offseason as the Redskins return all but one starter from last year’s squad.

Going into the draft, though, secondary was an area of interest for the 2012 NFC East champs as it seemed like every “expert” was tabbing a corner or safety to come to the Nation’s Capital.

Did they predict three DBs, two of which led the NCAA in interception, would join the team?

Was there anyone that thought they would land Phillip Thomas and Baccari Rambo, both of whom were linked to the N0. 51 overall pick, in the latter half of the draft?

ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano looked into his crystal ball for the NFL future for trio and sees some starters for the upcoming campaign.
