If one of the reasons you don’t want the Redskins to draft Marcus Mariota if he’s there when they are on the clock is that they keep on spending their limited resources on quarterbacks, well, you may be onto something. The outstanding website Football Perspective took a look and said that only four teams have…

The magic number for the 2009 Washington Redskins is 10. That is the number of wins that will satisfy most fans, will almost assuredly keep Jim Zorn in the head coaching position, land Jason Campbell a new contract, and make almost everyone believe that the team is heading in the right direction. How can they…

Here’s my annual ranking of the front-line Redskins. There are 29 players in the rankings—the 22 regular position starters, a third wide receiver, a third-down back, punter, place kicker, long snapper, kickoff returner, and nickel back. Today, #21 through #29: 29. Shaun Suisham, K—This seemed like a good place to start since he was statistically…

So far, so good. The Washington Redskins’ starting offense has gone from totally unproductive against the Ravens to showing signs of competence vs. the Steelers to resembling an actual NFL offense last night with the Patriots in town. Progress is what you’re looking for and that’s what we’ve seen. Jason Campbell demonstrated that he can…

There’s no reason to get, in the words of our President, all wee-weed up over Jason Campbell going one for seven for 10 yards passing. I hate to break this to you but there will be a few games this season that he goes one for seven in the first few series. He then will…

In yesterday’s Washington Examiner, Rick Snider made the argument that the NFL needs to go from four preseason games to two and to increase the regular season from 16 to 18 games. I wholeheartedly agree with my friend and I will add one more reason to his list. Two fewer preseason games will give Redskins…

Between now and the start of training camp I’ll be making my predictions about who will be on the final 53-man roster for the Washington Redskins–who’s there, who’s in, who’s on the bubble, and who’s out. The predicted roster will be revised and updated as preseason events warrant. Today, the quarterbacks. Who’s here Now: (4)…

The New Orleans Saints can make any quarterback look like Tony Romo. In 2007, the Saints defense allowed opposing QB’s a combined passer rating of 96.9. That’s just a shade behind the season rating posted of 97.4 posted by Mr. Jessica Simpson. This stat is somewhat astounding considering that the Saints played in the NFC…

Jason Campbell is going to be moving backwards in an effort to move the Washington Redskins’ offense forward. The quarterback will be lining up in the shotgun formation more often after finding a comfort level there in the late going against the Giants. Campbell had 15 attempts out of the shotgun against the Giants and…

Jason Campbell It’s not like going 4 for 10 for 28 yards is completely irrelevant, it’s just incomplete information. It’s like trying to judge a Miss American contestant by looking at one of her arms. Football games ebb and flow. Quarterbacks sometimes start out hot and cool off as the defense adjusts. On other occasions…

This just in: Jason Campbell is hot. The Washington Redskins’ fourth-year quarterback enjoyed another sharp, productive appearance on Saturday night against the Buffalo Bills. On his team’s second possession he led a 12-play, 53-yard touchdown drive. Actually, the drive covered 73 yards in 14 plays as the Skins had to overcome a pair of 10-yard…
