Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 26, 2013 – 10:35 am


Will Compton made Christmas plans with his playbook.

The rookie linebacker was activated from the practice squad on Tuesday to fill in for injured veteran Nick Barnett.

Compton said on Christmas Eve his holiday plans were to catch up on film study and prepare for his one game opportunity in New York.

“So far I’ve just basically replaced Nick,” Compton said. “They’re giving me backup reps behind London (Fletcher) and (Barnett’s) spots on special teams.” Read more »

Pereira Offers Clarity On Official Confusion

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 2, 2013 – 1:10 pm

Fullscreen capture 1222013 123554 PM

While the picture above is grainier than footage of the Loch Ness Monster, we know that the Sunday Night Football officials are offering two very different set of instructions.

At the top of your screen, head referee Jeff Triplette is signaling third down following a four-yard completion to Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon.

The clock is running inside of two minutes and no official measurement was called for, so the Redskins and Giants hustle up to the line.

But wait.

At the bottom of your screen, head linesman Phil McKinley is (incorrectly) waving the chain crew to move up to mark the first down.

So what do you do?

As a member of the Redskins coaching staff, the chain gang moves the sticks and the down marker is switched to first down. Head coach Mike Shanahan is not looking for Triplette gesturing with three fingers in the air, he’s basing his play call off the official down marker.

From there, he’s going to make an aggressive play call and target tight end Fred Davis 20 yards downfield. Picking up inches on third down was understandably the furthest thing from his mind.

After the game, Triplette offered an explanation that raised as many questions as it answered.

This morning, former Vice President of Officiating in the National Football League and current Rules Analyst at FOX Sports Mike Pereira sat down with FOX Sports Live to explain the play in detail.

WARNING: Before diving in, Pereira promises, “You’re going to see that there is a major crew breakdown.” This review is not for the feint of heart:

Watch Al Michaels Sing “Hail To The Redskins”

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 29, 2013 – 3:17 pm


Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth aren’t just flying by the seats of their pants.

Every insight you hear on NBC Sunday Night Football is the result of lengthy research and observation. A day after NBC broadcasted the Ravens Steelers game in Baltimore, the TV crew visited Redskins Park to watch practice, hold production meetings and prepare for Sunday Night Football.

Watch Cris Collinsworth detail the hospitality he received before Al Michaels belts out part of the team’s fight song. Extra kudos to hockey fan Al for his Hawaiian sign off.  Read more »

Series History: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 29, 2013 – 1:15 pm

Pierre Garcon


The football spun tightly in the end zone. Pierre Garçon’s hands jackhammered up and down and beat his chest after he put a little English on the dancing pigskin.

With Garçon’s fourth-quarter touchdown catch and Kai Forbath’s extra point, the Redskins took a 17-16 lead on the Giants. On Dec. 3, 2012, Robert Griffin III ran for 72 yards on five carries and notched a win in his Monday Night Football debut. Washington split the season series with New York and moved to .500 for the first time since falling in a 3-6 hole.  Read more »

Back-to-Back, Jack?

Some divisions, like the AFC East, are dominated by one team year after year. The Patriots have seemingly won their division every season since the Beatles were still together (ok, only nine out of the last 10, but still).

The Redskins would love to achieve that level of dominance in their neck of the woods, and things are looking as good as they’ve been in many years, after winning the division last season and romping through the preseason.

However, repeating as NFC East champions has proven to be very elusive as of late.

It’s been almost a decade since any team (the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles) went back-to-back as the No. 1 team in the division. All four NFC East teams are in big markets and have ownership groups who are very aggressive about winning, which makes for a highly competitive bunch, year after year. The NFC has almost certainly been the most competitive division in football, when taken as a whole over the past 30 years.

After nearly a decade of back-and-forth, the time is ripe for a back-to-back champ. But can the Redskins do it?

Reliving Season Series With The Giants

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 21, 2013 – 11:18 am


Just minutes after the New York Giants won their second Super Bowl in five years last February, “experts” across the nations quickly latched onto the Giants wagon in belief that they were going to win the NFC East and so forth in 2012.

Shoot some were predicting a .500 record between the two squads-with the Redskins going 3-13 to the Giants’ 13-3.

This was well before the Redskins got Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris.

While the Burgundy and Gold’s lone loss in the NFC East last year was at the hands of Big Blue, the nail-bitter still had some memorable moments nonetheless.

So without further ado, here is a recap of the 2012 season series between the NFC East foes (with only one division champion in the end.)

AccuScore is back this week with some wacky statistical projections and predictions for today’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens.

Last Monday, AccuScore had the New York Giants winning in 51 percent of its 10,000 computer simulations against the Redskins. For the Redskins-Ravens game, it’s the exact same outcome — only the Redskins are projected to win this time around.

Not surprisingly, AccuScore’s projections have a lot to do with how quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Joe Flacco perform today.

Here’s the highlights of today’s AccuScore predictions for Redskins-Ravens, according to ESPN:

VIDEO: ‘Skins Expose Giants With Option

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 8, 2012 – 12:00 pm

Check out how the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” crew breaks down how the Redskins offense’s option attack was able to break down the New York Giants’ defense Monday night in the 17-16 Washington win.

The option has been just one wrinkle of the Redskins’ East Coast Offense, which has blossomed under head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Tight end Logan Paulsen this week also addressed how the read-option and the pistol formation make the Washington offense’s wheels turn — though it didn’t all happen overnight.

Pay extra careful attention to this tomorrow, when the Redskins play host to the Baltimore Ravens at FedExField.
