  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...

  7. The Washington Redskins have been missing a great running game since the 2012 season when rookie and then-starting QB Robert Griffin III and RB Alfred Morris teamed up to record 2,709 rushing yards. With Morris gone, Head Coach Jay Gruden has appointed second-year rusher Matt Jones and veteran Chris Thompson as starters with a number of guys on the current 80-man roster vying to remain in Washington past the Sept. 5 deadline for the final 53. So far, it looks like undrafted college free agent Robert Kelley will get one of those spots. Throughout training camp and in games, the Tulane product has not only flashed but has actually looked the part of a starting running back. In three preseason contests, he leads the team in rushing; carrying the ball 22 times for 99 yards and a 4.5 yards-per-carry average. Pass blocking — which has been a real issue for the skill position players on the team over the last couple of years — is not something this young man is... Click on the link to continue reading...
  8. Much has been said and written about how “boring” the Washington Redskins 2016 offseason has been. There have been no huge free agent signings beyond the spectacular surprise of landing All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman. There has been no starting QB drama and there have been no player off-the-field antics to make the news. Washington’s starting QB likes it that way. In fact, Kirk Cousins had an interesting comparison to make about just how boring he’d like to be. “I’ve told my teammates that I’d like to be the San Antonio Spurs of the NFL,” the QB said. “[To] be super-boring and maybe people, at the end of the season just go, ‘Wow… they really had a good year and no one really talked about it.’” Cousins’ bosses would no doubt like this team to be as boring as the Spurs. Even though he is an offensive player, perhaps Cousins could have a year like the Spurs Kawhi Leonard and... Click on the link to continue reading...
  9. As the Washington Redskins get ready for the second-to-last practice of their 2016 training camp program, it has become apparent that the ballclub’s defense has made some improvements over last season. There have been many times when, during both walkthroughs and padded practices, the defense has owned the day. Second-year cornerback Bashaud Breeland has had several interceptions and Will Compton has shown that he is the clear choice to be the starting middle linebacker. He has been disruptive to quarterback Kirk Cousins and his crew several times over the two weeks and is found frequently around the ball. This is no surprise because he said that he wanted to work on causing more turnovers this season. These turnovers are a good thing, to be sure but the frequency of them against his offense poses a bit of a problem for Head Coach Jay Gruden when the media gets to asking about it. He then has to publicly decide: is he happy that his defense is making plays or is he upset that his offense let it happen? Click on the link to continue reading...
  10. Here is my film breakdown of DeSean Jackson's deep ball receiving from last year. From camp and from week 1 of preseason, he looks to star this season if he can stay healthy. Let me know if you have any questions!
  11. In my first quarterback TD/INT series article of the off-season, I took a look at Kirk Cousins' 36 Touchdowns in 2015. This article is split into two pages. The first page is a detailed stat breakdown. The second page is a closer look at some of his touchdowns using All-22 film. I will then take a look at his interceptions in the following article and will continue going through (most of) the other quarterbacks in the NFL as the summer progresses! Let me know if you have any questions!
  12. So I attempted my first video breakdown and I wanted to see what you guys think! This video took roughly 30 hours to create (a lot longer than I originally anticipated), but I think it turned out alright! In this breakdown, I took a look at all of Jordan Reed's targets in 2015 (including playoffs). He had 114 in the regular season, and another 17 in the playoff loss to the Packers. This analysis looks at the trends of how the 'Skins used him and his strengths and weaknesses. Let me know if you have any comments and/or suggestions below for me to improve! For tables of his targets by location, route, and situation click here:
  13. Continuing with the quarterback TD/INT series articles of the off-season, I took a look at Kirk Cousins' 11 Interceptions in 2015. This article is split into two pages. The first page is a detailed stat breakdown. The second page is a closer look at some of his interceptions using All-22 film. Other Articles: Kirk Cousins' 36 Touchdowns in 2015 -
  14. He's a great zone receiver who is good at catching-in-traffic and in the endzone. Honestly, I think he replaces Garcon's role in the offense once he develops his route running ability. Maybe next year? Strengths Incredible body control Great jumping ability Excellent catch-in-traffic ability Great at finding zones/seams between defenses. Weaknesses Ran a 4.50 40-yard dash, but plays like he runs a 4.70. Very little separation. I was shocked to see him run that 40. Still developing route running ability. Limited route tree at TCU. Bad against press coverage. Needs a good push-pull release with his size. Horrible at getting YAC. Definitely a zone finding possession receiver. Pro Comparison: Terrence Williams. Similar size and abilities coming from Big-12 schools. Doctson has better hands and a higher ceiling for sure. Some say he's a poor man's AJ Green based on his body control (similar style), but not nearly as elite in terms of overall quality of prospect. Note: IF you get 30 second ads on the videos I apologize in advance. Streamable apparently (Video provider) started serving ads to the breakdowns. I'm REALLY hoping it's a mistake since they mentioned it shouldn't be that invasive. Please try reloading the page - I'm on vacation right now or I'd swap all the videos out for GFYs. I do not make any profits from their ads and have emailed them to see if they can resolve the issue.
