  1. Fletcher, Clements to DC? Yes and No.

    Reports that the Redskins have locked up Buffalo linebacker London Fletcher are all over the place, from the Post to SI.com. Of course since the free agency period doesn’t start until Friday at midnight no deal can be done. “Officially” the Redskins and Fletcher’s agents can’t even talk about a contract until then. But there…

  3. Skins Could Learn From Playoff Teams

    Jan 23, 2007, 3:28 PM EDT

    The NFL playoffs are one game away from being concluded. They occurred, of course, without the participation of the Redskins, an all too frequent occurrence in the past decade and a half. With the coaches being involved in season-ending meetings and the players scattering to their homes and various vacation destinations it’s doubtful that they…

  5. Quick Hits: Keep Portis and #6

    Sometimes the best deals are the ones that you don’t make. One in that category certainly would be any trade that removes Clinton Portis from the Redskins roster. It’s good to know that Ladell Betts can tote the rock, but he isn’t the home run threat that Portis is and you’d like your prime back…

  7. All News is Bad News

    The autopsies on the Redskins season, which suffered a premature death, are rolling in from many different sources. The Post did a three-part series covering the personnel acquisition system (or lack thereof), the failure of Joe Gibbs and Al Saunders mesh their offensive philosophies, and the collapse of Gregg Williams’ defense. Thom Loverro at the…

  9. The Defense: Tweak it or Nuke it?

    Jan 3, 2007, 4:09 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    This just in—the Redskins defense stunk in 2006. In almost any way you look at it the performance of the unit was among the worst in the NFL. They were #27 in rushing yards, #23 in passing yards and #31 in total yards. Washington had only 19 sacks; the second-worst team in this regard, the…

  11. Will Redskins Vets Just Say No?

    Comments Off

    The group that decides personnel matters for the Washington Redskins may get a whole lot bigger this coming offseason. The team may add a general manager to the mix, but that’s not what I’m talking about. What I’m referring to is a group of about a dozen veterans, players who carry 2007 salary cap numbers…

    If the Redskins 16-10 win over the New Orleans Saints is a look at the shape of things to come, there is a lot to like. In no particular order: Jason Campbell wasn’t perfect, but he was more than good enough. In front of a charged-up hostile crowd in a dome, he made no apparent…

    You can reach Rich Tandler by email at WarpathInsiders@comcast.net Yeah, I know. It’s all about winning. Joe Gibbs will tell you that. Every other coach from Al Saunders to Bob Saunders will tell you that. Every player from Albright to Yoder will say the same thing. Still, all losses are not created equal. There are…

    Do the Redskins have their swagger back? We thought that they did following their thrilling overtime win over Jacksonville in Week 4. The carryover momentum from that game, however, lasted less than two quarters into their next game. That was when the Giants started to take control of their contest in the Meadowlands. That was…

    You can reach Rich Tandler by email at WarpathInsiders@comcast.net Normally, one would say ho, hum. Another article ripping the Redskins for being an organization is disarray. Wake me up when they get past the part about Dan Snyder being a megalomaniac and fantasy football owner. Most such articles never do. This one, however, merits close…
