  1. Welp, we've made it. The regular season is finally upon us and we've just entered the first game week, so naturally we fans are feeling the nerves kick in and are ready to start freaking out, jump off ledges, and kill each other and everyone around us. Look around ES a little and tell me I'm lying? Now, I can understand people's concerns about this offseason, but I think they're missing the forest for the trees. I sincerely believe those who are frustrated about things, to the point of calling this offseason a failure (or even perceiving it as Sco

  2. It was the mid 1990's. In the then WWF (now WWE) Razor Ramon aka Scott Hall and Diesel aka Kevin Nash had their contracts coming up for renewal. In those days, wrestling contracts weren't guaranteed. Guys were basically paid on a per show appearance. The bigger the show, like a WrestleMania, the bigger the payday. However, if you didn't land a match on that card you didn't get paid. As Scott Hall's contract was coming up he negotiated with the Number 2 wrestling company at the time, WCW. WCW was owned by Ted Turner whose goal was to displace Vince McManon's WWF at the top of the mountain. Turn

  3. Landover, MD - Welcome all to the Extremeskins coverage of the second preseason game. I'm TSO in the Press box providing you with the best damn coverage I and Spaceman Spiff, who will be providing coverage from the sidelines, possibly can! 1999 Redskins go 10-6 and win the NFC East. The following season? Failure. 2005 Redskins go 10-6 and nab a wildcard spot. The following season? Disaster. 2007 Redskins go 9-7 and sneak into the playoffs. The following season?

  4. Over 4,000 yards in consecutive seasons. That's how I'm going to start this article. Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins became the first man in team history to not only post two 4,000 yard seasons, but he also did that consecutively. That's quite the feat. Cousins only needs 122 yards to best his franchise record 4,155 yards on a season, and he's just 955 yards short of a 5,000 yard season. Obviously, that would be the first in team history. In order to do so, he'd need to average just shy of 320 yards per game. Daunting, but possible. To be clear

  5. So, yeah it's just the first Pre Season game which I've grown to call "Talent Evaluation". Even so, most fans weren't going into this game worried about the passing game. The two bigger issues were the run game as it became non existent early into last season & the Redskins struggled to put together a threatening ground campaign. The other issue was the pass rush without a true NT (which this scheme doesn't really use) & the run defense, especially up the middle. Here, I decided to go back & re-watch just the run game for the First Half as the starters were done after th

  6. VICTORY!! Redskins 29 - Giants 27 Well ladies and gents, here we are. Coming into New York (except not, because it's New Jersey, but who wants to admit they're in New Jersey on purpose?), we sitting here 0-2, last in the division, while the Giants are sitting pretty (pretty ugly) at 2-0 with a division win. My my how things turn so quickly, and that's the goal today. With a win today, we're right back in this. That'll put us at .500 in the division and put some wind at our backs when we come home to face the Browns. So far, it's been a hell of a time

  7. All offseason if you talked to Doug Williams all you heard was "We're gonna fix the run game". And when the Draft came around, after passing on him in the First Round, all 5-11, 225 lbs of LSU stand out, Derrius Guice fell into their lap. The pick completely re-energized the team and the fans with thoughts of a legit NFL Running Back to give them the missing part of their Offense. Fast Forward to the first week of Pre Season in New England where Guice, six carries in, had just started to show what he could do when when he was tackled & was extremely slow to get u

  8. One more time before the Bye. Last week, I went through & watched both the previous Raider games before they came to town to get made to look like a high school JV team. This week I had thought about doing all 3 Chiefs games before heading off to KC, however due to time constraints I’ll be skipping their Week 1 upset of the Patriots and Week 3 against the Chargers. So, on the docket we’ve got their Week 2 matchup which had the same storyline as the Redskins’ Week 2 game. Skins had Gruden vs McCoy & this one has Reid vs his former Assistant Coach in Doug Pederson. Reid was

Now, now, let's stop with the applause and all calm down. So, I've re-watched the first preseason game against the Falcons numerous times and I came away with some performances I thought were more intriguing to follow than others, with an eye on how they respond in the following games. Will those who disappointed improve upon the issues they showed? Will those who impressed continue to do so? Will we see chan

  10. Alrighty fellow ESers, I'll be doing the ES coverage up in the press box at FedEx for the next two preseason games with my main man @Spaceman Spiff taking awesome pics of the action as usual! As I did last year, I'll be focusing on players (or in this case entire positions) that have intrigued us all offseason. I'll go through what I saw in the previous games and, as we journey through the preseason, who improved or regressed along the way. And what has intrigued us all more than the Dline this offseason? So, first, a quick primer as to how I've approache

  11. So, last week I went through the Falcons game and came up with a few players I thought were intriguing to keep our eyes on as we moved forward through the preseason (with a ton of video to boot, probably too much as that page is/was a bummer to load ); either because they had disappointing outings and we hoped to see improvements from them, or because they looked surprisingly good and we hoped to see the continuation of that level of play. I intentionally focused on players who weren't being talked about a whole lot that week so as to avoid any media redundancy. The disappointments I

A few of the players are on the field warming up and stretching Falcons on one end and Redskins on the other. Great view of the field from the press box, much better than Fedex or TampaBay which are the other stadiums I've been at. You would have to pay good money for these seats.

  13. In today's Divisional Debacle, the Defense under Greg Manusky in the first half, gave up 207 yards of offense (105 rushing/102 passing) and two touchdowns. That said, they did manage a single INT on which the Offense actually managed to score a touchdown off of. They allowed 12 of 16 passes to be completed . In the second half it was 107 yards given up (58 rushing//49 passing) a field goal and a touchdown. They traded their first half pick for a second half sack. However, Dallas completed all five of their pass attempts. Don't read that thinking "Well it seems like t

I'm TSO in the press box at FedEx Field along with Spaceman Spiff, here to provide you with the best damn coverage we possible can! Last week I talked about the burden that undoubtedly weighs on every Redskins fan's mind... that fear that lingers knowing that, after every successful season in the last how many years, the team followed it up with utter failure. The paranoia that something terrible is right around the corner. The Redskins "curse", if you will. But then

No, it wasn't smooth sailing at check as that never happens. Today's check in didn't have Murf down to be in the room. Usually that happens to me. I suggested the chick at the front desk just check me in & hand me an extra room key. I think that was to much for her to process. She still had to check with someone. Anyways, we finally got checked in & headed to the room to drop off our gear before heading out for a couple of breweries. Ste

  20. Aight. Last week was kinda fun reviewing the Rams tape, so I figured let’s do both Raiders games for this week. Yes, both. For now, here’s the Raiders at Titans game from Week 1. First up is Week 1 with the Raiders at the Titans. First thing is it’s weird to hear Romo calling this game because he’s always been an NFC guy yet here he is calling an AFC game. Secondly, the Titans start this game with a failed on-sides kick. It was ballsy, but dumb. Now to what I’ve been wanting to see, this vaunted Raiders Offense as never watched them last year. So let’s rearview what t

  23. DEFEAT!!! Steelers 38 - 16 Redskins Opening Thoughts JimmiJo For me, real football is played in the biting cold of late fall, when the leaves are down and the first snows are come. That said, it is hard to argue with the weather to start this Washington Redskins football season. Bright sun, mid-80s, and low humidity add up for a spectacular late-summer day outside. And while it may be a little on the warm side, I am sure when the sun sets we will settle into a beautiful night for football. Hello friends, JimmiJo here and I am joined by my partner of old, Murf.

  27. Week 1 Loss Leaves Redskins Searching for Answers By John Pappas (ES Coverage Staff) For Redskins’ fans, this offseason was filled with excitement and anticipation. Washington won the NFC East in 2015, riding the back of an offense and quarterback in Kirk Cousins that seemed to get better each week until losing in the first round of the playoffs. Despite the loss, the team entered the post-season with no major injuries to key players. There were no salary cap issues and fans expected the team to keep their major stars. Even better, General Manager Scot McCloughan would have

  29. We’re still doing this? Absolutely! Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option. The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch. Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game. Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg). The first team to 15 wins! With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game a

  30. I know, I know, that's a terrible title. However, I've only been to one game here at the Linc, and we won. Division championship in 2015, a thing of beauty. I'm also 2-0 while writing these things. At the same time, I was at the Monday Night Massacre/McNabb's Payday, so don't get too ****y. Philly has been fun-ish. We went to Geno's to get some world famous cheesesteaks Steak-Ums. More overrated than any free agent signing we've had since, well, you know. No matter what this turns out to be, it'll be a nice break from all of the distractions off the field. #yourenotwinningo

One game, one single game, completely changed the look of this then 5-2 Redskins team. Last week against the Falcons they lost nearly the entire Offensive Line. Having to scramble, the FO was signing guys off the street in order to play the Bucs. There’s lots of factors that will play into what this M.A.S.H. unit of an Offensive Line will be able to do. As Jay Gruden said earlier this week, they’re teaching these

  32. So this just happened. Cardinals RB David Johnson just signed his extension & is calling for a Cards win to start their season. Now that he's got his pockets straight will he be playing with a purpose to prove he's worth it? And will the Redskins newly stacked D Line be prepared to show that the Cardinals just wasted their money? Tune in tomorrow, same Skins time, same Skins channel...

  43. Greetings from yet another Thanksgiving at AT&T Stadium. Feels like this is starting to become an annual thing playing here in Dallas. Though last year the team stayed home & beat the Giants on Thanksgiving. Personally I wish the League would take off this schedule as it makes the holiday more enjoyable without having to worry about a game. And what a game this could be. The Redskins are still looking for their 600th franchise win. They also come into this one a game ahead in the Division with a chance to sweep the Cowturkeys. “Wait.” You’re saying to yourself

  44. So, with about half of a former roster coming back home this week, it feels like maybe Bruce shoulda penciled in the 49ers as Homecoming/Alumni Week. Though that whole “Homecoming” theme never really went our way, typically ending in a Redskins loss. Freshly minted first time Head Coach Kyle Shanahan brings his surprisingly 0-5 49er team to FedEx Field this Sunday. Now, there’s just no way this week I have the time to review all 5 of their games, so I’m picking two games at random. First up is their Week 2 game at the Seahawks, followed by their week 4 loss to the Cardinals. The 9ers lost both
