A “Lack of Talent” Show

Anyone who knows anything about NFL football knows that it’s no secret that the Redskins and their fanbase were the butt of numerous punchlines of jokes surrounding the Redskins throwing excessive amounts of money at big name players, and consistently contending for the “offseason championship” or “championship team on paper” title.

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.

A Reversal Of Fortune

I’m still blown away by the comeback. I know there are plenty of teams come back an win games in the fourth quarter, even when down by a touchdown or more. Hell, I honestly can’t think of anything more petrifying for defensive coordinators than giving the ball to Tom Brady with two minutes left in […]

We Want Dallas

Watching the Redskins in person is a unique experience. Hearing the chants of “WE WANT DALLAS!” reverberate through the stadium can give any Skins fan goose bumps. While belting out the Dallas chant, a sense of pride that has been missing for far to long swept over FedEx. Heading into the Monday clash in Texas, […]

Five Keys to Redskins Victory over Giants

ook, there’s a lot of things that frustrate me about being a Redskins fan: the constant search for a new head coach every four years (it’s like Dan Snyder’s own personal Olympics of hiring ineptitude), the never-ending carousel at quarterback, the comings and goings of high-priced free agents, and the idiot Cowboys fans who live in DC […]
