Brian Orakpo Is NFL.com’s Top No. 13 Pick From Last 10 Drafts

230 tackles, 39.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and countless sleepless nights for opposing quarterbacks–yeah, it makes sense why Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo is considered the top No. 13 overall pick of the last decade by NFL.com.

Referred to as the top “rock star” at that particular slot since 2003, here are some of his best quarterback rockin’ moments since 2009:

On the night before Super Bowl XLVIII, 46 journalists will debate the inclusion of 13-year Redskins tackle Joe Jacoby into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

NFL.com is giving you a chance to sway their vote.

I can’t promise the Selection Committee will consider  how the fans vote, but every little bit helps. You have to pick out 15 finalists for your vote to count.

VOTE FOR JOE JACOBY AS ONE OF 15 MODERN-ERA FINALISTS.

Redskins Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 6 Edition

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 13, 2013 – 8:00 am

(AP)

(AP)

Monte Kiffin’s Tampa 2 is not what it used to be. Statistically, Dallas’ defense is near the bottom of the heap, while Washington has the worst-ranked unit in football. Thus, members of the fantasy fooball media expect big numbers from both teams on Sunday.

Two sites have Redskins as their starts of the week.

NFL.com’s Michael Fabiano named Alfred Morris, who carried Washington to the NFC East title with a 200-yard, three touchdown performance in the 2012 regular season finale, as his start of the week. Your decision to start Moris comes down to how much you want to believe in the home team. Morris tore up the Cowboys last year, but as bad as the passing defense has been in Dallas, the Cowboys are ranked fourth in rushing defense.

Alf Start of the Week

Fabiano also likes Robert Griffin III at Dallas, which has allowed 400-yard passing performances in three out of five games.

Schedule Heavy On Top-10 Receiving Units

How about this for a quick “welcome to the NFL” for rookie defensive backs David Amerson, Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo.

Over on NFL.com, to further prep you for what will assuredly be another fantastic season, is a ranking of the top-10 receiving units in the league.

The Washington Redskins schedule, already considered to be a handful, features nine games against the following top-10 units.

Pierre Garcon Is Obvious Key To Success

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 10, 2013 – 3:39 pm

(AP photo)

That headline shouldn’t be too much a shocker. After all Pierre Garcon was signed last offseason for all intents and purposes to be Robert Griffin III’s first-ever top target in the NFL.

Garcon’s arrival to the Washington Redskins didn’t exactly receive the unprecedented fanfare that No. 10’s would one month later, but that doesn’t mean his on the field impact was going to be minute.

Unless you consider an 88-yard touchdown in his debut as nothing of a big deal (it is).

Anyway, according to one NFL.com writer, the key factor to the Redskins offense clicking on all cylinders again in 2013 isn’t going to be the same offensive line from a year ago or how Griffin III and Alfred Morris will perform in year two—it’s Garcon.

Some Sorry For Counting Redskins Out

Posted by Andrew Walker on January 2, 2013 – 11:22 am

There’s many, many NFL experts and analysts who have spent their Holiday season eating crow about how they believed the 2012 season would turn out for the Washington Redskins.

Though we at the Redskins Blog are in the process of recovering some of those same experts’ predictions from weeks and months ago, it’s also worth bringing up those who have admitted when they were wrong.

NFL.com Around The League editor Gregg Rosenthal did just that yesterday.

Redskins Among ‘Most-Watchable’ Teams

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 5, 2012 – 10:27 am

(AP photo)

The Washington Redskins have one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league, two incredibly talented rookies at quarterback and running back doing their thing, while all four of their games so far in 2012 have come down to the wire.

As a result, NFL.com Around The League Editor Gregg Rosenthal has included the Redskins among the best teams in this week’s “most-watchable teams” power rankings.

So where exactly do the Redskins rank on Rosenthal’s list?

More Power Rankings, Same Story

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 4, 2012 – 3:06 pm

Today’s posts have already included discussion about where the Washington Redskins fall in this week’s ProFootballTalk power rankings, so unless I see another power rankings list that has the Redskins drastically lower or higher than the mid-20s at this point, it won’t merit much discussion.

There is, however, one theme that is apparent as I look over a few other national organizations’ power rankings: slowly but surely, the Redskins are improving.

That was the case in the power rankings this week for NFL.com, ESPN.com and the National Football Post.

Here’s a little bit of breakdown of each:

Expert Tabs Griffin III As Offensive ROY

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 31, 2012 – 11:36 am


With the start of the regular season so, so close, several NFL analysts are reviewing their notes from the offseason and each team’s four preseason games and predicting which teams and players will be big winners in 2012.

And if you’re going by NFL.com’s 16 listed experts’ predictions, then the Washington Redskins don’t have too much to play for this season.

Out of the 208 possible categories in which the Redskins or their players could’ve been chosen in NFL.com’s official 2012 predictions, just one involves the burgundy and gold:

NFL.com: These Two ‘NEED’ To Step Up

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 22, 2012 – 4:39 pm

(AP photos)

NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt today unveiled the two players from each NFC team who “must shine” for their teams to be successful.

These players, Brandt said, often fly under the radar, but can be just as important as its established superstars in getting their team to play in the postseason.

Which two players from the Redskins “must shine?”
