Redskins Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em: Week 16

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 22, 2013 – 10:05 am



Typically I would say dance with the one who brung ya.

If you’ve navigated your way into a fantasy football championship today, I’d say stick with what works.

But maybe you don’t like your matchup at quarterback. Maybe Drew Brees on the road against the Carolina defense gives you the nervous sweats. Or maybe you just can’t stand to play Tony Romo against your beloved Redskins.

Enter Kirk Cousins, whom many fantasy experts have spotlighted against the NFL’s poorest defense. Read more »

Cowboys Vs. Redskins: Experts Pick ‘Em

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 21, 2013 – 10:05 am

Holy Gee-whiz Golly Gosh Wow.

I don’t know what happened to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk. Maybe a body-snatching alien has overtaken blogging duties this week. Florio has been trolling the Redskins all season, but he’s one of a handful of national media members predicting a win for Washington on Sunday against Dallas.

Redskins At Eagles: Experts Pick ‘Em

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 10:41 am

We all respond to stress with our own ways.

Matthew Shultz persecutes lawn gnomes. With their backs against the wall, hopefully the Redskins will respond in a more constructive manner.

In case you haven’t heard this 40 times this week, it’s worth noting last time Washington was 3-6, it reeled off seven consecutive wins en route to a division title.

No one at CBS Sports sees that happening.

Redskins Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em Week 8

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 27, 2013 – 7:00 am



Where did Robert Griffin III go?

I’m pretty sure he’s started every game this season. I know he has. It hasn’t all been perfect, but he’s definitely been there, taking snaps, throwing passes, and lately, running quite a bit.

But to hear from the national fantasy football experts, Griffin III didn’t show up until last week, when he torched the bears for 298 passing yards and 84 rushing yards. All fantasy prognosticators agree, Griffin III is back in style like that animal-themed sweatshirt your “nana” gave you that you decided was ironically humorous.

Yeah, you’re a hipster.

Redskins Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 6 Edition

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



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.

As the Washington Redskins prepare to defend their 2012 NFC East title, suggestions have become rampant as to what pieces can be added and adjustments made to help the Redskins not only get their second straight division title but their fourth Lombardi Trophy.

Over on SI.com is a 2013 offseason preview for the Redskins, highlighting several areas of success, concern, and modification that can help get Washington over the hump. Let’s just say some of them are creative.

Paulsen: New Offense Was ‘Culture Shock’

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 7, 2012 – 10:46 am

When the Washington Redskins took quarterback Robert Griffin III as the second overall pick in the NFL Draft, it was announced almost immediately that the incoming rookie was going to be the starter for the 2012 season.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan immediately began the tedious task of figuring out how to form their offense around Griffin III’s talents, which, of course, include a big, accurate arm with the ability to stretch the field with his legs.

About seven-and-a-half months later, the Redskins own one of the top offensive attacks in football. Defensive coordinators cringe as they try to prepare their teams for what’s to come.

But the success wasn’t a given simply by drafting Griffin III. The Washington coaching staff also had make sure the 10 other guys on the field knew how to play their parts to add their brand to what’s now a well-oiled machine.

One of those key contributors to the offensive rejuvenation has been third-year tight end Logan Paulsen, who was thrust into the starter role Week 8 after a season-ending injury to Fred Davis Week 7 against the New York Giants. Paulsen prides himself on coming to the park each day around 6:30 a.m. and leaving no earlier than 6 p.m, and this “gym rat” persona has allowed Paulsen to continue his personal goals of becoming a better all-around tight end  — not coincidentally, he’s in the midst of a career year in Washington.

Paulsen was a guest yesterday on Sports Illustrated columnist Peter King’s Week 14 NFL Podcast(24:52-43:50), and discussed in great detail exactly how the Redskins’ “East Coast” offense has changed and how his teammates have adjusted — and continue to adjust — each week since Griffin III’s arrival.

Paulsen told King that the introduction of the new packages to the offense was at first mind-blowing.

Peter King: Redskins Will Win More Titles

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 22, 2012 – 12:12 pm

There’s few football writers I respect and trust as much as Sports Illustrated’s Peter King. I’m sure most in the league agree with that statement, as well.

So when King says that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is going to lead his team to multiple Super Bowl titles, I can’t help but get a little bit giddy.

King broke out his crystal ball and made the projection this morning in his weekly “Monday Morning Quarterback” column.

Oh, and he also compares Griffin III to Irish musician and U2 front man Bono.

But back to Super Bowls.

King said it won’t be long until the Redskins have built around Griffin III enough to capture multiple titles:

Redskins Grace Sports Illustrated Cover

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 26, 2012 – 2:19 pm

For the second time in two weeks, the Washington Redskins have made the cover of Sports Illustrated.

It happened Sept. 12 when rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III became the seventh Redskins quarterback in team history to become the Sports Illustrated cover boy.

Now, the Redskins are part of a series of cover stories about the resurgence of sports in the Washington, D.C., era.

Here’s a photo of this week’s cover, via Sports Illustrated’s Twitter account:

Look At This New Sports Illustrated Cover

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 12, 2012 – 8:36 am

If you’ve ever been inside the FedExField press box, you’ll notice the huge Redskins Sports Illustrated covers hanging on the back walls.

These covers are from the Redskins’ glory years of the 1980s and 90s, and bring a sense of nostalgia to the press box.

If things go to plan this season — and for seasons to come — it seems as if the Redskins have at least one brand new Sports Illustrated cover to hang up.

According to CSN Washington’s Rich Tandler’s Real Redskins blog, a certain Redskins rookie quarterback is on the cover of this week’s East Coast edition of Sports Illustrated — and we’ve got the cover right here:
