    Griffin-scramble-vs-Vikings

    Robert Griffin III and the Redskins started hot and finished hot.

    Amerson-vs-SD

    Here are some of my observations from the Washington Redskins’ 30-24 overtime win over the Chargers: 1. Pierre Garçon was good and very valuable last year but we didn’t see the acrobatic, jaw-dropping catches he made in Indianapolis. Now, we have. Last week in Denver he made a lunging, one-handed grab of a Robert Griffin…

    “When you’re bad, you have to get good.” That’s what Robert Griffin III said when talking about some issues the Washington Redskins had with some early drives in their 30-24 overtime win over the San Diego Chargers.

    Five keys to the Redskins-Chargers game plus a prediction. 1. The Chargers are 23rd in the league in total defense but they are ninth in points allowed.

    RG3-hit-vs-broncos

    No question about it, the Broncos battered Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III during the course of their game last Sunday.

    RG3-Morris-vs-Bears

    My six pack of observations from the Washington Redskins’ 45-41 win over the Bears on Sunday: 1. The Redskins’ defense was not good yesterday but it was not as bad as it looked. There is no reason to celebrate giving up 41 points, 140 yards on the ground and to have Josh McCown, who last…

    Forbath-FG

    Five game keys plus a Bears-Redskins prediction: 1.
