For real, though, do the Washington Redskins even like bye weeks?

The Redskins didn’t play as well as we all expected them to on Sunday. But let’s be honest. What should we expect? Do these guys really like bye weeks?

Who should Cowboys fans root for in the Week 7 Redskins and Eagles MNF matchup?

Who should Cowboys fans root for in the Week 7 Redskins and Eagles MNF matchup?

The question that’ll make you queasy, do you want the Redskins or Eagles to win this week? The Dallas Cowboys visit the winless San Francisco 49ers this week for a game on Sunday, then just over 24 hours from when that game ends, Monday Night Football will have the Washington Redskins (3-2) visiting the Philadelphia Eagles (5-1). The outcome of that game will drastically influence the state of the NFC East. The Eagles currently have a firm lead on the division Philadelphia is 5-1 with a pretty decent schedule through their game in Dallas on November 19th: Washington Redskins (3-2) San...

A fifth-round pick in 2016, defensive end Matt Ioannidis is emerging at the right time for the Washington Redskins. Now he appears headed towards an expanded role on defense.

NFL Power Rankings 2017: The Redskins stay in the Top 10 after another win

NFL Power Rankings 2017: The Redskins stay in the Top 10 after another win

The Redskins are a Top 10 team this week The Redskins(3-2) added another loss to the 49ers season, but it wasn’t a dominating win like some expected. The 49ers were in it until the end for a variety of reasons. The Redskins get the W and stay competitive in the NFC East with the division leading Philadelphia Eagles. Monday Night Football will answer a lot of questions about the division. The Redskins need the win to keep pace with the Eagles, and Philadelphia looks to firmly take control of the division early in the year. Disgusting. The Redskins are in the 6 - 17 range this week, and the...

Redskins Ingredients for Improvement: Team must avoid stalling late

You knew this was coming. Heading out of their bye week, the Redskins looked surprisingly unpolished, and going into next week’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, they’ll have to improve in multiple areas if they want to win.

The 5 O'Clock Club: Redskins, an ‘efficient’ franchise?

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere... The 5 o’clock club aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below. I have always had a fascination with OverTheCap, a website dedicated to the NFL salary cap. It is a wonderful resource on individual player contracts, and it provides lots of off season distraction when there is really no actual football being played. The site is run by guys who love football, but they also love math. They often get very focused on...

Redskins Vs. 49ers - Studs and Duds

Redskins Vs. 49ers - Studs and Duds

Sunday’s victory against a winless 49ers team should have been much more comfortable than it actually was. The Redskins offense looked crisp from the start, and got off to an early 17-0 lead before allowing 17 unanswered points to end the half, and start the third quarter. Unfortunately, some poor calls on the field, and a few mistakes in coverage led to a close game down the stretch. This may have been the 49ers Super Bowl, and the Redskins, who were banged up in the secondary before this game started, got even more dinged up as the game progressed. Still, a win is a win no matter how...
