A former tight end for the Washington Football Team, and their 3rd round pick in the 2013 Draft, Jordan Reed has announced his retirement. Reed was once considered to be one of the absolute best pass-catching tight ends in all of football.Read More
Kyle Shanahan must have certainly circled this week’s matchup between his San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Redskins, with a big, fat magic marker. After all, he hasn’t been shy about slinging some passive aggressive mud around, about his time in the nation’s capital. His team is struggling; and he’d like nothing more for those struggles to come to an end at Fed Ex Field on Sunday. Does Shanahan’s return affect the?
It doesn’t appear so, with the Redskins being given their first ten-plus point spread of the season (11), over the winless 49ers.
Shanahan is in his first year of a six year deal with the 49ers, and they are re-building. Perhaps that gives him a distinct advantage over the two guys that went before him, and only got one year each. One of those guys was current Redskins defensive line coach, Jim Tomsula, and the other was Chip Kelly. That turnaround makes Shanahan the third coach in three years, following a time where Jim Harbaugh was producing winning teams there. Including a team that made it all the way to the Super Bowl.Read More
DeSean Jackson is a Washington Redskin.
Let that sink in for a second.
I’ll say it again now that you have had time to ready your burgundy and gold brain for the news, DeSean Jackson is a Washington Redskin.
Late Tuesday night, the 27-year old wide receiver agreed to terms with Washington, and instantly became the Redskins’ crown jewel of the 2014 offseason. Anyone in the Redskins Nation twitterverse has been watching with bated breath for the last 24 hours, as rumors swirled, and speculation mounted, as to whether or not a deal with Jackson was, or could get done.Read More

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos rolled all over the Washington Redskins in the second half with 38 unanswered points, en route to a 45-21 destruction at Mile High Stadium. Last week the Redskins offense showed signs of coming around against the Chicago Bears, but on Sunday against the Broncos, they appeared to have hibernated. Or maybe they were just stymied from the top down.
Enter offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Why, oh why, do people try to put square pegs in round holes? This isn’t the first time that Redskin fans have been left scratching their heads as to what in the aqua blue hell was going on in Das Wunderkind’s brain – but it’s the first time for a while, that one might scratch hard enough to draw blood. I did anyway, and I may just have to remove the Redskinsif their offense continues to be completely paralyzed by their coordinator’s need to treat it like a toy. It’s a costly betting oversight most weeks. Read More
In Part 2 of our interview, we continue where we left off. Doc gives his thoughts on if the Redskins have a chance of recouping some of the lost cap money and evaluates the tight ends not named Cooley.

Is it me or are the Washington Redskins actually starting to turn into a resilient football team? I’m not saying that they can overcome all odds or anything – but they proved on Sunday that they could overcome some pretty big ones. When Robert Griffin III went out with a right knee injury in the waning moments of the game, the ‘other rookie quarterback’ came in and polished off the. Who’d have thunk it? Read More
It was another roller coaster ride for Redskins Nation on Sunday, as the Redskins struggled early, and then struggled to put the Vikings away after dominating through most of the middle of the game. In the end, Robert Griffin III’s two rushing touchdowns, proved more than Minnesota could handle, and allowed Washington to come away a 38-26 victory – their first home win in nine tries. The loss ended a three game winning streak for the Vikings, and dropped them to 4-2 on the season.
Here are some thoughts about the game:Read More
