    RG3-running-vs-NYG

    Robert Griffin III rushed for 77 yards against the Cowboys after having gained 72 yards on the ground in the Washington Redskins’ first four games. But, in reality, the Redskins got over 100 yards out of Griffin’s legs last Sunday. That is because the Cowboys were hit with 15-yard penalties for hitting Griffin when he…

  5. Monday six pack: Reed disappears from offense in second half

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:54 AM EST

    Jordan-Reed-vs-Cowboys

    My six pack of observations on Redskins-Cowboys: —If you glance at the stat sheet it looks like Alfred Morris had a pretty respectable game against the Cowboys with 81 yards rushing on 16 carries. But 45 of those yards came on one touchdown run. It’s not as though the 45-yard run doesn’t “count”; it was…

  6. Griffin says offense ‘close’ but ‘close doesn’t do it’

    RG3-stiff-arm-Dallas

    The Robert Griffin III of 2012 was back for some of the game on Sunday night in Dallas. Unfortunately, he wasn’t there consistently enough or for long enough to keep the Washington Redskins from falling to the Cowboys 31-16 and dropping to 1-4 on the season. The Redskins now trail the Cowboys and Eagles, both…

    Fans watching in the stands and on TV knew it. The media covering the Redskins knew it. TV analysts and other national media types knew it. Finally, Robert Griffin III admitted it.

  16. Did the no-huddle save the Redskins’ season?

    Oct 2, 2013, 1:57 PM EST

    Morris vs. Raiders

    With an 0-4 record staring them in the Washington Redskins in the face, Kyle Shanahan decided it was time to try something different. The 0-3 Redskins trailed the Raiders 14-0 late in the first quarter. At that point the offense had mustered just one first down in three possessions. Washington had the ball at its…

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:56 PM EST

    RG3-at-line-vs.-Raiders

    It wasn’t pretty and it was closer than the final score looked but the Redskins surely don’t care. They got their first win of 2013 by rallying from a 14-0 first-quarter deficit to beat the Raiders 24-14. They don’t care that the Raiders played their backup quarterback as Terrelle Pryor missed the game with a…

    Sep 28, 2013, 11:55 AM EST

    Morris-RG3-vs.-NYG

    Five keys to Sunday’s Redskins-Raiders plus a prediction. 1. This game will be an Al Davis special—“Just win, baby”. Don’t look for many style points with the Redskins still searching for offensive consistency and struggling with some defensive fundamentals. They’ll probably have to settle for field goals far more often than most would like (all…
