Mike Shanahan Still Has High Hopes For Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins

When Mike Shanahan was the head coach of the Washington Redskins he made some waves when he drafted Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Why go with Cousins in the fourth round when the team had other needs and RG3 was clearly expected to be the starter? Well--maybe it was because he didn't have much faith in RG3 or drafting Griffin was more Dan Snyder's brain child and he wanted...

Ten worst Washington Redskins’ Quarterbacks in last ten years

In honor of David Letterman’s retirement, I have compiled a top ten list of the worst Washington Redskins’s quarterbacks in the last ten years. Not that naming terrible players from a dysfunctional franchise is any honor to you Dave, but that’s all I got.

Will the Washington Redskins defense destroy the NFC East?

Tom Pennington/Getty Images There was something quite unsettling with the Washington Redskins defense last season. They didn’t have one. I saw that coming. The off-season acquisition of no-show, 31-year-old defensive end Jason Hatcher didn’t exactly go according to plan, either. Yeah. I saw that coming, too.

Redskins have had a great offseason & other news

The Washington Redskins have become famous during the Dan Snyder era for having great offseasons that are actually terrible offseasons. By that I mean the team has been known for making lots of big, splashy moves to bring in expensive and older free agents — moves that generate a lot of attention in March and April and very few wins from September to the end of the year.

Tray Williams walks in Lache Seastrunk’s footsteps. Maybe. Redskins fans started drooling last year when they saw Redskins’ 6th round draft pick Lache Seastrunk’s highlights.  Pound the defense with Morris; fatigue them with Seastrunk’s monster cuts and acceleration. Well that dream ended in the same manner as most Redskins fans dreams, in the dumpster.  Not only was Seastrunk...
