Redskins defense ranks among the best in league in key statistical categories

Let’s face it: last year, Jim Haslett and his 3-4 defense weren’t exactly the the people/things that Redskins fans were happiest with, with the arrival of new regime under Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan.

Rams Blow 4th Quarter Lead in 23-20 Loss to Seahawks

The Rams for once had something they so rarely had this season…a lead late in the game.  And in Week 15, they let it slip through their fingers.  The Seahawks won on a short field goal as time expired from Olindo Mare. The offense could not control the clock in the fourth quarter (only running […]

Rams Slammed at Home by Bears 27-3
