Jason Hatcher Would Have Done Bad Things to Redskins Kicker Kai Forbath Had He Missed Against Tennessee

One one hand the kicker has the best job in the NFL. He rarely--if ever--gets hit.

Redskins use Santana Moss’ Native American tattoo as propaganda

Only the Washington Redskins would post something like this as they continue to live in denial over racism that involves the name of their team. “Redskins Facts” posted this tweet showing Santana Moss’ Native American tattoo.  May as well use him for something since he’s been sitting on the bench all season. Loving this ink from Santana Moss: "S/o to.. @tattzbyd to...

This past Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, Kirk Cousins started his fifth consecutive game since Robert Griffin is still out due to injury.

Why the Washington Redskins still have a lot to look forward to.

So what’s left for the Washington Redskins? This season has been pretty much a total failure, and there’s not much hope on the horizon. But do Redskins fans, and the Redskins themselves, have anything to look forward to for the rest of the season? The answer is yes. They have Robert Griffin III. Even before RGIII was injured this year, there was a small, yet vocal, group of people...

The 10 Most Disappointing Redskins Of The Past 20 Years Or So

Brian Orakpo’s season ended this week, another torn pectoral muscle ending another underwhelming campaign. That likely ends his time with the Redskins, too. He had some decent seasons — including a few Pro Bowl campaigns — but I’ll always think of him as somewhat disappointing, because he wasn’t supposed to be decent. He was supposed to be a dominating sack machine, the...

Let’s be real. The Redskins are awful and the Cowboys are looking great with the best record in the NFL. Yet the Redskins can beat the Cowboys using ‘guerrilla’ football tactics.  Some Redskins’ old time fans remember the season the Redskins were dominating and threatened to have an undefeated season with just two games left.  Those two games were against pushover teams...
