Brian Orakpo Re-Emerges On Top 20

While he may not be receiving much attention at the moment, Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo is still one of the best in the league at his position.

Entering an all-important fifth season here in our Nation’s Capital, Orakpo’s looking to rebound from a disappointing 2012 campaign derailed by a season-ending injury suffered in the second week of the season.

As ESPN’s NFC East blogger Dan Graziano counts down the top 20 players in the division, Orakpo is the first Redskin to appear on the list.

Comparing Rush Numbers Vs. SB Winners

With 20 days until the start of the team’s first training camp away from Redskins Park in years, the Washington Redskins are entering 2013 as the kings of the NFC East for the first time since the 2000 season.

Despite the fact that the Redskins won their last seven games of the 2012 season to include five over division rivals and one over the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, some considered the division title a fluke!

Was it because the Redskins bucked a trend of sorts in the modern era of the NFL by relying on their potent ground game behind rookies Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III?

As ESPN’s Dan Graziano points out, though, regardless of the shift to aerial assaults being the primary focus for NFL offenses in 2013, the Redskins have built a rushing attack that is unparalleled—and that includes five Super Bowl winning squads.

Redskins ‘Can’t Lose’ Barry Cofield In 2013

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 1, 2013 – 2:15 pm

(AP Image)

(AP Image)

Last year when the Washington Redskins claimed their first NFC East title of the 21st century, the offense was all the talk of the town.

Behind a record-setting duo of first year players Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, the Burgundy and Gold’s offense finished in the top-five in total offense for the first time since their last division crown in 1999.

While Griffin III and Morris should be credited for their contributions in turning what appeared to be a lost season into one with January football, it’s a man on the other side of the pigskin that ESPN’s Dan Graziano has as the Burgundy and Gold’s “can’t-lose player” for 2013.

ESPN Predictions For Redskins In 2016

Coming out of the 2009 season the Washington Redskins had failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season and logged their worst record in 15 years.

Fast forward to 2013 and the Redskins are coming off their first division title in 13 years thanks to the efforts of the 15th best player in the NFL (quarterback Robert Griffin III), the most unexpected record breaker in franchise history (running back Alfred Morris) and a defense that is headlined by three Pro Bowl linebackers.

Predicting the future is not easy (just ask the Mayans that), but over on ESPN they are looking into their “barometer tracking” crystal ball of how all 32 franchises will look during the 2016 season.

While the rankings themselves require an Insider subscription, NFC East blogger Dan Graziano gave a sneak peak at how the Redskins fared.

Here are the results.

2013 Draft Members Have Chance To Start

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

(AP Photo)

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.

All-NFC East Team Is Released; RG3 MVP

A season-best nine Washington Redskins players today were named to ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s final All-NFC East Team. Additionally, Graziano named rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III the NFC East’s Most Valuable Player.

The Redskins’ nine selections tied the Dallas Cowboys for the most 2012 All-NFC East team selections. Following the division leaders were the New York Giants (six selections) and the Philadelphia Eagles (three).

Like it was in the NFL’s Pro Bowl voting, Washington (9-6) was well-represented in all three aspects — offense, defense and special teams — in the 2012 All-NFC East Team. The Redskins had five selections on offense, three on defense and one on special teams.

Here’s the entire list of Redskins representatives on the final All-NFC East Team:

Slight Change For All-NFC East Redskins

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 19, 2012 – 10:24 am

The Washington Redskins are the hottest team in the NFC, so let’s state the obvious: many of their players are performing at very high levels.

This is apparent in this week’s “All-NFC East Team” compiled by ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano, as the Redskins have a season-high-tying eight representatives on the list — which is based on an entire season’s body of work and is not a week-by-week evaluation.

Washington (8-6) had eight All-NFC East players last week, too; though there is a slight change from last week’s list to this week’s.

Here’s this week’s Redskins representatives, with a few comments below:

Two ‘Skins Added To All-NFC East Team

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 13, 2012 – 9:45 am

Chris Chester

A season-high-tying eight Washington Redskins players appear on this week’s version of ESPN.com Dan Graziano’s All-NFC East Team.

And, judging by Graziano’s picks, the Redskins’ offensive front is doing pretty well for itself.

Additions to this week’s list from last week’s All-NFC East Team — which is based on an entire season’s body of work and is not a week-by-week evaluation — include right guard Chris Chester and punter Sav Rocca.

Here’s the entire list of Redskins representatives:

New Redskins On All-NFC East Team

Two of the more important pieces of the Redskins’ staunch run defense are getting some due recognition.

Nose tackle Barry Cofield and middle linebacker Perry Riley this week grace ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s weekly “All-NFC East Team,” which is based on an entire season’s body of work and is not a week-by-week evaluation.

Cofield (pictured above and looking hyped up about his All-NFC East Team selection) and Riley are the plug of a Redskins’ rush defense that ranks fourth in the NFL by allowing just 91.5 yards per game.

They’re included this week with a couple other Redskins All-NFC East Team mainstays, and were evidently almost joined by a couple other teammates:

Familiar Faces On All-NFC East Team

The Redskins mainstays on ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s weekly All-NFC East Team have, well, stayed.

The team has five representatives on this week’s list, just as it did last week.

Again, though, I’ll contend it should have at least six. More on that later — first, this week’s Redskins flavor on Graziano’s All-NFC East Team:
