    RG3-tackled-vs.-Lions

    The play of the Redskins and quarterback Robert Griffin III against the Lions was improved from the previous two games. The team was more competitive. There were some signs of hope. There was, however no victory. Unlike the previous two games, blowout losses to the Eagles and Packers, the Redskins were in the game at…

    Here is what you need to know on this Sunday, September 22, the day the Redskins play the Lions at FedEx Field. Redskins-Lions final checklist —That the Redskins lost to the Packers was not surprising. That they were non-competitive in the process was. They never trailed by over 18 points at any point in any…

    There have been a lot of questions about the Redskins’ play calling during their first two games, particularly the lack of runs by Robert Griffin III. Both Mike and Kyle Shanahan have said that it has been game situations, not Griffin’s health, that have put the shackles on the quarterback who was so dynamic last…

    Lions-Suh

    The Redskins take on the Lions at FedEx Field in what may or may not be a must-win game. Here are five things to look for plus a prediction: 1. If they can’t control Ndamukong Suh it’s going to be a long day—and it could be a short day for Robert Griffin III. A vote…

  8. Preseason for RG3 a moot point

    Sep 19, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    RG3-sideline-Steelers

    It seems obvious now that the Redskins would have been better off if Robert Griffin III had played during the preseason. The quarterback has spent the first two games getting used to playing on his reconstructed right knee and the accompanying knee brace, and trying to get in synch with his teammates. The need for…

    Here is what you need to know on this Tuesday, September 17, five days before the Redskins play the Lions at FedEx Field. Nickel coverage 1.

  11. Benching Griffin is not the answer

    Sep 16, 2013, 9:35 AM EDT

    RG3-Matthews

    The Washington Redskins might have a better chance of beating the Detroit Lions on Sunday with Kirk Cousins at quarterback instead of Robert Griffin III. But benching Griffin right now would be a huge mistake. Yes, I saw Griffin struggle to make plays yesterday against the Packers and last Monday against the Eagles, at least…

  13. Griffin vows: ‘We’ll figure it out’

    Sep 15, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    RG3-vs.-Packers

    As Yogi Berra once said, it was like déjà vu all over again. Just like last Monday against the Eagles, Robert Griffin III had a nice game if all you did was look at his final stat line. He was 26 for 40 for 320 yards and 3 touchdowns, a passer rating of 104.2. But…

    Last year, the Redskins went into New Orleans armed with an offensive game plan that the Saints didn’t know was coming. Robert Griffin III and his offensive teammates ambushed the Saints, who had won 13 games and the NFC South the year before, and walked out with an impressive 40-32 win. On Sunday, the Redskins…

  20. Enemy intel: Early look at the Packers

    Randall-Cobb

    The Redskins weren’t the only team that had some defensive issues in their season opener. The Packers, their opponent on Sunday, did not have a good day defensively in San Francisco. Colin Kaepernick lit up their secondary for 412 yards passing and three touchdowns. I think Anquan Boldin just caught another pass against them adding…

    Sep 10, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    RG3-tackled-Philly

    Due to the reconstructive surgery to his right knee eight months ago, Robert Griffin III did not play in the preseason and his work in training camp was very limited. He started the season opener against the Eagles and for the early part of the game he looked like a quarterback who needed some more…

  24. Prediction: Will more Eagles plays equal more turnovers?

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Vick-fumble

    Week 1 games are difficult to predict. Without looking it up, I’m sure that I picked the Saints to win comfortably a year ago today as the Redskins went to New Orleans for RG3’s debut. I don’t think I saw them beating the Giants behind Rex Grossman in 2011. Perhaps I called the win over…
