Harrison: ‘D’ Dominates Division Needs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 10, 2014 – 11:49 am

Redskins Giants Football


The Seattle Seahawks proved the professional football tenet once again. Defense wins championships.

According to NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison, every team in the NFC East should prioritize the defensive side of the ball once free agency opens Tuesday, March 11, at 4 p.m.

In 2013 the New York Giants ranked eighth in the NFL in total defense, Washington was 18th, Philadelphia was 29th and Dallas was the worst in the league. Every team in the division ranked in the bottom half of the league in scoring defense.

Although he’s bullish on the long-term prospects of 2013 fourth-round pick Phillip Thomas, Harrison thinks the Redskins need to target a safety.

“Improved safety play would provide defensive coordinatorJim Haslett the confidence to take some shots as a defensive play-caller, opening up the blitz package,” Harrison wrote. Read more »

Three Redskins Named ESPN All-NFC East

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 2, 2014 – 12:00 pm



Running back Alfred Morris, linebacker Brian Orakpo and cornerback DeAngelo Hall each earned a spot on ESPN’s list of the best players in the NFC East.

After a 3-13 regular season, the Redskins placed the least players of the four teams composing the divisional all-start squad.

ESPN did not award a spot to the NFL’s leading receiver or Washington’s lone Pro Bowler.

Here’s a look at the full team. Read more »

First Quarter Happenings: #WASvsPHI

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 12:57 pm



The Redskins have one loss left. Maybe two. Okay, the NFC East is really bad. Maybe three.

In any case, nothing mathematically final will happen today, but the outcome of an away tilt in Philadelphia will be the strongest indicator of Washington’s postseason potential. By now you know the legend of 3-6. The Redskins have played poorly enough to put their backs against the wall. Sunday could be a last shot at redemption, or it could be one more case of what could have been.

Philadelphia has a different quarterback, but its most important cog remains the same. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb saying LeSean McCoy is the most elusive runner in the NFL. DeSean can Jackson can take the top off a defense.

Alfred Morris has been running better every week. If the Eagles are to stop him, sideline-to-sideline linebacker DeMeco Ryans will be key.

Is today the start of another miraculous streak, or is it one more nail in the coffin? Follow the first quarter in the live blog below. Read more »

Santana Moss’ Son Encountered One Nice Fan In Philadelphia

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 14, 2013 – 7:00 am



Don’t be deceived. Even the nicest looking fans in Philadelphia are merciless, throaty critics who indiscriminately spew a stream of invective at even the most innocent offender. At least that’s the stereotype.

Those Philadelphians (Philadelphites? Philadelphonics?) picked a fight with Clinton Portis’ mom.

They forced one of their own to plead for an end to the booing.

They booed my grandma for taking too long to write a $2.00 check for milk at the checkout counter. Okay that last one didn’t happen, but you see where I’m going with this.

Eagles fans are tough to please. They can be  intimidating for visiting fans. But according to Santana Moss, there’s at least one good guy at Lincoln Financial Field.

Back-to-Back, Jack?

Posted by Evan Redmon on September 4, 2013 – 9:08 am

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?

East Ranked Fifth Among NFL Divisions

In a recent article released by CBSSports.com, the NFC East ranked as the fifth best division in the NFL.

At the top of the list is the NFC West, a division with the reigning NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers as well as the Redskins’ constant playoff foe, Seattle Seahawks.

The NFC East being ranked 5th may puzzle the faithful of Redskins Nation, but the Redskins are not part of the problem–at all.

WAS-DAL: Five Things To Watch In 2013

Posted by Chris Herting on May 17, 2013 – 3:36 pm


Circle your calendars.

The Redskins will head to Dallas on October 13th for a Week 6, NBC Sunday Night Football (8:30pm), clash before returning home to host Dallas in a Week 16 tilt at FedExField on December 22nd at 1pm (full schedule).

The burgundy and gold hit the bye week early this year in Week 5 which means that the Redskins will face the Cowboys following the bye. Considering that the Redskins are coached my Mike Shanahan and that Shanahan is currently 11-6 in games following bye weeks, there’s positive sign number one.

Remember last season following the Bye Week? It was a 31-6 thrashing of the Philadelphia Eagles and the beginning of a seven game winning streak.

Anyway, here are five things to watch for heading into next year’s matchups against Dallas.

Finding Impact Players In The 2nd Round

Posted by Chris Herting on March 20, 2013 – 3:45 pm


There’s no mystery that the Redskins are the only team without a first round pick in the draft and the likelihood of trading into the first round is slim to none. But hey, the team quote, unquote ‘mortgaged’ the future for last year’s second overall pick.

How’d that end up working out?

Well, the pick paid immediate dividends. It produced the consensus NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, the team’s first NFC East Championship since 1999 and a playoff berth.

Credit the coaching staff and front office for being proactive and making a deal the Rams couldn’t refuse in order to move up and take QB Robert Griffin III. Franchise quarterbacks with Griffin III’s raw talent and ability come around once in a blue moon and the team did what they needed to do to snatch the Heisman trophy winning quarterback.

There’s absolutely no reason to be discouraged that the team’s first selection will come on day two of the draft. And hey, impact players can be found in the second round, especially in a deep draft like this one.

Here’s a list of a few of the players selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft who started and produced immediately for their respective teams.
