It already looks like the Matt Jones experiment is an abject failure. Not only has he looked less than stellar in his limited preseason action but now he has been diagnosed with an AC sprain of the left shoulder and could miss up to four weeks. The backup plan is no plan, as Chris Thompson is not a primary back. Keith Marshall and Robert Kelley have not shown enough to believe either could be a week one starter if necessary. Look for the Redskins to scour the waiver wire if Jones is out for any length of time.Read More
With a completely irrelevant preseason game now under their belt, it seemed a perfectly “poke the bear” time to ask the question…
The Washington Redskins shocked a large portion of the NFL world in 2015, rattling off nine victories en route to winning the NFC East. They will look to build upon that performance during the 2016 campaign, and while the NFC East won’t be as easy to run away with, things at least look good on the improvement front.Read More
You will often hear people remark that no one, single play defines a game, but it would be tough to deny that if you string even two or three really bad plays together, the result will be reflected negatively in the score more often than not. Such was the case on Thursday night in the Washington Redskins’to the New York Giants.
Obviously football is a complicated sport, and mistakes are going to happen on every play. That isn’t what we’re talking about. We’re talking about plays that are head-scratchers, or change the momentum of a game, or both as is often the case.Read More

I love the Draft. I don’t take the same kind of draftnik approach that I used to and scour over other people’s opinions on players until I have formulated my own full blown draft hypothesis. I respect the people that do, but these days, I take a more relaxed approach.
I don’t profess to know which players will be drafted in all 256 slots. I only know that I enjoy the offseason pageantry that I personally attach to the event. It’s the football equivalent of Christmas in July. Besides, the randomness of it all, makes it tougher to predict than the pokies at.
Here is a look at all ten of the Redskins 2015 NFL Draft selections, as well as some commentary about them…Read More
Preston Smith was the name Washington called with the 38th overall pick. The Defensive End from Mississippi State was one of this year’s NFL Combine super-risers. He showed great athletecism, and that’s likely what was so attractive to the Redskins.
Smith isn’t the prototypical edge rusher. He will beat guys with power, not speed. He’s also versatile enough to drop off into coverage and fill multiple roles along the evolving Defensive front. He will play linebacker in the base 3-4, but will also see time as a stand up defensive end:Read More
