Kirk Cousins Relying on Faith to Guide His Career

The Washington Redskins failed to achieve one of their biggest offseason goals, which was to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a long-term contract. Now, they go into the season hoping they can figure out how to keep Cousins on the team for longer than another year. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the 2017 football odds for Washington Redskins.

After the team was unable to reach a long-term deal with Cousins, the team issued a statement in which they said they offered the quarterback a $53 million deal but they didn’t get a response from Cousins or any of his reps. Read More

DeSean Jackson: #WallpaperWednesday

I thought that this week I would make DeSean Jackson the subject of #WallpaperWednesday. His status for Sunday’s game against the Bucs is still questionable, so I’m trying to send a little good mojo his way. And the Redskins way.

Because they sure need a dose of something.

Not even taking 3 touchdowns away from Percy Harvin, could stop Russell Wilson and the Seahawks from handing the Redskins their 4th loss in 5. Here are the interesting numbers and statistics from the Seahawks 27-17 victory over the Redskins on Monday night:

6,781 – Equals the number of times I watched Russell Wilson do something and thought, remember when RGIII used to look sort of like that? But I digress… Read More

It Was A Battle, Lost

Ever eaten something that was incredibly delicious, and yet somehow inexplicably, the last bite was bad? Sour? Unpalatable? That’s what the Redskins 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles felt like on Sunday. To me anyway.

That isn’t to say that I pin the loss to the last play of the game for the Redskins, so much as to say, that what was a darn good game of football, may seem tainted by the overall outcome. The chagrin is understandable, 1-2 and a division loss, instead of 2-1 with a division win, is a mountain of difference.

But you can’t grade every game COMPLETELY on the result. Obviously it is the ultimate judgment of play and success, but the Eagles are a very good football team, and the Redskins gave them a heck of a challenge in their own home. I twas a war of attrition. It was nasty at times. it was full of mood swings. It was… great. Read More
