Changing One Redskins Offseason Move? Which One?

Changing One Redskins Offseason Move? Which One?

If the Redskins could go back to the offseason and change one move (or one non-move), which move would it be? Every week this season, each NFL team site on the SB Nation network is reviewing the offseason decisions made—or not made. The question is: “Now that the season has begun to play out, what would your team do today if they could go back and change one move they made in the offseason? Would it instead be a move or addition they didn't make? Ahhhhhhhh...a Redskins fan’s favorite game: jumping in a time machine and changing the past. Of all the questions/topics that occur with...

Thoughts On The NFL: Week 6

Thoughts On The NFL: Week 6

What stood out around the NFL after Week 6 Philadelphia vs. Carolina The Skins must contain Carson Wentz, blanket Zack Ertz, and tackle Blount. They are a legit contender right now. CANT WAIT. San Francisco vs. Washington It was much closer than it should have been but the Skins pulled it out. I mentioned earlier in the week that this was a game the Redskins would have lost just last year but due to improved players, coaching, and depth the team is able to overcome trying situations such as these (*cough* Refs). The defensive line has vastly improved because of depth, development of...

An MRI was done, and Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden said he could miss 3-4 weeks, which seemed optimistic. Allen will reportedly miss the rest of his rookie season per ESPN's John Keim.

Why the 2nd quarter of the Redskins season is the biggest of the four

Why the 2nd quarter of the Redskins season is the biggest of the four

With one win already under their belt, Washington must keep pace in the NFC East The Redskins enter their Monday night match-up against the division-leading Philadelphia Eagles, in second place in the NFC East at 3-2. It is evident after six games that this Eagles team is more talented and mature than years past, making them one of the tougher opponents of the season. Prior to the season opener, I made mention that the Redskins would not have the upper hand against the Eagles week one. The Eagles had not won against the Redskins in five consecutive attempts, the Redskins ineptitude in...

So far Jay Gruden has shown his commitment to running the football

So far Jay Gruden has shown his commitment to running the football

In the off-season Jay Gruden promised to run more, so far, he has kept his word Earlier in the offseason, head coach Jay Gruden told the second year running back Rob Kelley to get prepared for more carries, because they’re going to be running the ball a lot more. Although Kelley has not been the main ball carrier this season due to injury, it appears five games in Gruden meant exactly what he told Kelley. In 2016 the Redskins were ninth in rushing yards per attempt but only 27th in attempts per game, which was an imbalance offensively that hurt the Redskins in key moments in that season....

Redskins work out 20 players, Dustin Hopkins out for year, sign K Nick Rose

The Redskins look for new blood Skins designating Hopkins (hip) as IR player eligible to return, source says. Nick Rose signed.— Mike Jones (@ByMikeJones) October 17, 2017 The Redskins have been dealing with injuries every week, and continue to have new players get dinged up. This week's victory over the 49ers cost them DE Jonathan Allen(Lisfranc), K Dustin Hopkins(hip, reportedly out for the year), and possibly CB Bashaud Breeland(knee). They were already without CB Josh Norman(ribs), S Deshazor Everett(hamstring), and RB Rob Kelley(ankle) last week, and had Trent Williams playing...

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...
