Matthew McConaughey ‘Loves’ Redskins Nickname, Says Logo Gives Him ‘Oomph’

Matthew McConaughey, whose opinion apparently is relevant to the matter, favors keeping the Washington Redskins nickname and logo. Sure, all right. McConaughey, who hung out at Redskins camp last summer, sat down with GQ for a cover story in the November issue. The conversation turned to fatherhood, which naturally led to a discussion of the NFL team’s name controversy. (Don...

Brian Orakpo is not done in DC, Redskins fans

Gee, to go by social media, Brian Orakpo is done in DC. Schoolchildren and sports fans can be so cruel. Orakpo is lost to the Redskins for the season after tearing his right pectoral muscle in the Titans game. He twice tore his left pectoral muscle. It led to the loss of substantial time in 2011. Then the injury forced him to miss 14 games in 2012. The twitterverse reacted with glee...

Redskins Ticket Prices Hit New 5-Year Low

Here to talk about the falling price of Redskins tickets is TiqIQ. As tough as the 2012 playoff loss to the Seahawks was, it seemed that the Redskins might be on the verge of turning the ship around. They had a new, Heisman-winning quarterback, their first playoff appearance in five years and, even to the most pessimistic of Redskins fans, a dim and flickering light at the end of...

Gruden frustrated with Redskins’ run game

The Washington Redskins may have picked up their second win of the season, but they are still struggling to run the football. Despite getting more carries than in previous weeks, Alfred Morris rushed for just 54 yards on 18 carries. That’s an average of 3.0 yards a carry. The team as a whole was only slightly better, as they reached 100 yards collectively but with a less than stellar...

Redskins to stick with Colt McCoy over Kirk Cousins

Misery Loves Company: Field Trip To A Redskins Bar In Charlotte

I found out this is a Redskins bar by mistake. It was a new place in Plaza-Midwood, our favorite neighborhood in Charlotte. We met friends there on a summer evening for beers and tater tots and at some point during the night it was brought to my attention that this is a place for Washington fans to gather, watch games, and be sad together. The only other Redskins bar I knew of in...

Is Brian Orakpo done in Washington?

LB Brian Orakpo is hurt again.  More alarming, it is an injury to his right pectoral muscle.  Orakpo has already had two previous injuries and surgeries in 2011 and 2012 to his left pectoral muscle.  He will undergo an MRI tomorrow to  determine the extent of the injury. If the MRI reveals a tear, Orakpo will likely be done for the season.  If that is the case, then the 2009...

BREAKING: Kirk Cousins benched in favor of Colt McCoy

The Kirk Cousins era is officially over in Washington. After starting the game 10 of 16 for 139 yards, an interception and a lost fumble, Jay Gruden pulled the trigger and replaced Cousins with Colt McCoy. McCoy immediately made an impact with a 70-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon on his first attempt. To be fair, though, all of the credit for that touchdown should be given to...
