  1. Redskins are the NFL’s most mediocre team

    May 27, 2009, 5:05 AM EDT

    The 2009 Washington Redskins will be about a .500 team. I say this with confidence and not because I possess a crystal ball that allows me to peer into the future and see events to come with clarity. It’s because I can see the past and recognize that a .500 team is what the Redskins…

Owner Daniel Snyder loves the big splash and might be willing to gamble on Vick, who grew up in nearby Newport News, Va. There’s no question that the Redskins…

    As the Washington Redskins’ sixth-round draft choice, linebacker Robert Henson knows that he will have to wait his turn to play with the defense and contribute on special teams in the meantime. He has been down that path before. For three seasons at TCU he got three starts on defense and played on virtually every…

    The hay is in the barn for the Washington Redskins. Free agency essentially is over and the draft is done. They went into the process with holes a defensive tackle, defensive end, guard, linebacker, and right offensive tackle. The hole at offensive tackle remains. They could have chosen Michael Oher of Mississippi with their first…

    It’s one thing to climb the mountain and win the championship once. Many teams have done that. The hard part is getting knocked down and then winning it all again. In 1986, Joe Gibbs and the Redskins showed that they could get back to the top. No, they didn’t win the Super Bowl; they had…

    A few observations from today’s Redskins minicamp: As most of you know, I’m not much of a Colt Brennan guy but I have to say that I was impressed during seven-on-seven and 11-on-11 drills. He fired a few intermediate passes over the middle with great accuracy and authority and showed good touch on deep passes.…

    Comments Off

    Should the Washington Redskins have taken an offensive tackle in the draft? Certainly, it would have been nice to come out of the weekend having secured the long-term replacement for the right offensive tackle position, preferably a replacement who could line up with the first team in minicamp.
