    Comments Off on Comings and goings in Ashburn

    After going for six weeks with no roster moves, the Washington Redskins made three of them on Tuesday. Here’s who’s in, who’s out, and what it means.

    Comments Off on Betts out for a month?

    Ladell Betts may miss more time that we originally thought. According to Jason LaCanfora, Betts came very close to suffering a season-ending knee injury last Sunday and that he may not be back until after the bye week. If that’s the case, it makes sense of the Redskins’ decision to bring in Shaun Alexander for…

    Comments Off on Tuesday Take: NFC East all shook up

    Just when the “experts” think they know everything, it turns out that they didn’t know nearly as much as they thought they did. –Redskins on a roll and the winless Rams have no chance? The turnover bug bites Washington and St. Louis steals a 19-17 win. –The Cowboys are a lock for the Super Bowl?…

    Comments Off on Former MVP to Skins?

    Both ESPN and the NFL Network are reporting that running back Shaun Alexander, who was the NFL MVP in 2005 while playing for the Seattle Seahawks, is coming to Redskins Park for a visit. According to Adam Schefter of the NFLN, his signing with the Redskins is inevitable if he passes a physical. Of course,…

    Comments Off on Look no further than the turnovers

    You can talk about the focus and penalties and communication problems and the failure of the fourth cornerback to adjust to a pass in the air. And, yes, all of those were factors in the Washington Redskins’ loss to the Rams on Sunday. But the simple fact of the matter is that the three turnovers,…

    Comments Off on Redskins vs Rams 4th quarter

    14:00—Zorn has not abandoned the run and it is serving the team well as Portis is banging for some good yardage and a 23-yard pass to Randle El off of play action has the Redskins on the move. We’ve seen this before, though, and they have to finish the drive. 12:41—And a first-down false start…

Again, I don’t want to blast him too hard because there really wasn’t much time to think, but that still…

    Comments Off on Redskins vs Rams 2nd quarter

    12:32— 11:15—The offense is moving a bit more fitfully here, but after a nice Betts run and a Randle El reception the Redskins are near midfield. The Rams have been blitzing Ricky Manning to good effect. 10:06—We have our first Zorn moment here as the Redskins will go for it on fourth and one just…

    Comments Off on Redskins vs Rams 1st quarter

    Pregame There is something of a big-game atmosphere here at FedEx Field. We weren’t quite sure what to think of the Redskins when they last were here on September 21. They had just beaten two playoff contenders at home and, while they were starting to get it together, few thought that they would be 4-1…

    Comments Off on Evans to start

    Although Jason Taylor is active, it has been announced that Demetric Evans will start at defensive end. Presumably that leaves Taylor in a situational and rotational role.
