  1. It's been widely publicized that the Redskins have not made a legitimate attempt to sign Kirk Cousins. They've not made a reasonable offer by any standards of the situation and have been sitting on the same offer they went with at the end of last years FA period. He's undoubted a Top 10 QB in the NFL for his first 2 full years as a starter and proven himself again and again. He's the best QB in the NFC East going into this year and is poised for a monster year as the 3rd year in the same offense. The FO needs to listen to the fans and hear about the choice from the 12th Man on the roster! Sign Kirk Cousins now!! HTTR!!
  2. The 4-3-1 Washington Redskins go into their bye at the perfect time — Week 8. Everyone on the team needs to get away from football for a while to heal physically and mentally. This is a good time to look back on the first half of the season and grade the team’s offense, defense and special teams. Today is a look at the offense. Quarterback Kirk Cousins had a career season last year and continues to progress. Things like extending plays, making good decisions with the ball and continuing to distribute it to his weapons are all things in which he has improved since he became the starting QB. So far in 2016 he is has completed 215 passes of 321 attempts for 2,454 yards, 12 TDs and seven INTs. He has a 67.0 completion percentage, 306.8 yards per game average and a 93.1 QB rating. Last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, Cousins completed 38 of 56 throws for 458 yards last week and in doing so, recorded his 16th contest in which he exceeded 300 passing yards (he is now tied with former Redskins Hall of Fame QB Sonny Jurgensen for the highest number of games with 300+ yards in Redskins history). By the same token... Click on the link to read the article
  3. The Washington Redskins lost a hard-fought game to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field 20-17 in Week 7. Besides the typical yards-per-carry and number-of-completions statistics out there; there are some other stats should get some attention. This loss to the Lions was Washington’s first road loss since Week 11 of the 2015 season. It probably doesn’t seem it has been that long for Redskins fans, however. Quarterback Kirk Cousins had no interceptions and finished the game with a passer rating of 106.9, his third passer rating of 100.0 or better this season. The former Spartan also recorded his 15th career 300-yard passing game (including postseason play) to move past Joe Theismann (14) for sole possession of second-most in team history. Cousins also had a career-long 19-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter off a stellar play-action fake to running back Chris Thompson. The touchdown run was the QB’s first of the season and the sixth of his career. He has now thrown at least one touchdown pass in 22 of 23 regular season games since assuming the starting role before the 2015 season, including each of the last six games dating back to Week 2. Despite the fact that veteran WR Pierre Garçon... Click on the link to read the article
  4. The Washington Redskins were much-maligned early in the season for not running the ball enough, but in the last couple of games they have redeemed themselves. Not only is Washington running the ball well, the team is scoring on rushes. Running back Matt Jones has now scored four touchdowns this season, including one in the first half of the game today against NFC East division rival Philadelphia Eagles. He, Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley combined to rush for 231 yards in the 27-20 win. Over the course of the game, the Redskins rushers were prolific for the most part, gaining yardage in large chunks. Kelley had a long run of 45 yards (five rushes for 59 yards), Jones logged his longest run of 22 yards (16 carries for 135 yards) and Thompson’s longest rush was for 10 yards (nine carries for 37 yards as well as three catches for 29 yards). Each of these guys is a different type of runner and that might have been a factor in their success. Jones is more of a downhill bruising back. Thompson is... Click on the link to go to the article
  5. The Washington Redskins pulled off a tough 29-27 Week 3 victory over the New York Giants in a back-and-forth contest that went down to the wire. For Washington the game was the epitome of a ”team” win with the offense, defense and special teams all contributing in big ways. One player that had a huge impact on the game was wide receiver DeSean Jackson, a veteran who has turned into a real warrior for the Burgundy and gold. The five-time Player-of-the-Week caught five balls for 96 yards (19.2 ypc) and a touchdown. After making four of his five receptions and the touchdown, Jackson aggravated knee and ankle issues and had to go out of the game. But rather than staying out, he returned to the field. During the Redskins last drive (besides the victory formation after LB Su’a Cravens’ INT); Jackson’s... Click on the link to continue reading...
  6. The Washington Redskins are 0-2 early in a season that had promised much more. To make things worse, statistics show that only 12 percent of NFL teams that begin this way make the playoffs. It’s not so much that it’s impossible for a team with two losses to make up a lot of ground and go on to win eight or 10 more games… it’s the way the Redskins lost their two that has people channeling Chicken Little in the DMV and beyond. Now they must face a hot New York Giants division opponent in a stadium where they don’t do very well. Quarterback Kirk Cousins isn’t playing the way he was when he led the team to the NFC East division title in 2015. The defense hasn’t developed to become as effective as was thought might happen with the arrival of CB Josh Norman (although he has played well enough to justify his large payday). And while WR/return specialist Jamison Crowder had a good day against the Dallas Cowboys, special teams still has issues. Head coach Jay Gruden and offensive coordinator Sean McVay are...
