TPF’s NFL Week 2 Rundown

In what many could consider a walk through bizarro world (any Sealab fans?), Week 2 of the NFL season was more than interesting. A slew of injuries, suspensions, and upsets made Week 2 the most intense one that I can remember since the 2006-2008 seasons. That was a time when the league felt very balanced, and the playoffs were fun. And that’s exactly what this week felt like; fun. The San Diego Chargers carved up Seattle; the Buffalo Bills started 2-0 and plenty more in this week’s rundown.…

Who should be the starting QB for Washington?

When Kirk Cousins replaced Robert Griffin III, the Washington Redskins’ offense dominated the Jaguars’ defense. But, RG3 is the coveted first round pick they traded so much away just to land? Who should be the starting QB for Washington?

The answer is clear, but I’m not sure the owner and coaching staff will make it.

In his first season, RG III was an effective quarterback. Much of his success was based on his ability to run; to execute the ‘read-option’ style offense.…

Redskins identity: Run, run and run

The identity of a team can make or break its season. Are they a solid defensive team who can win with minimal offense? Or are they a high-powered scoring machine which can blister you with a barrage of points. No matter what their identity is, each NFL team has one, and it just so happens that the make-up of the Washington Redskins is run, run, and run some more.

In 2012, the Washington Redskins, and then Head Coach Mike Shanahan, drafted a little known running back out of Florida Atlantic in the 6th round by the name of Alfred Morris.…

Harrison and others clamoring for Cousins need to back off

It’s obvious that Robert Griffin III is and still will be the guy for the Washington Redskins. In 2012, he went 20-31 for 193 yards, two touchdowns and had no picks in three preseason games. In 2014, he was 13-20 for 141 yards amassed across four games. Although he had only one fumble lost (he had two prior to the regular season of 2012), he had two interceptions, and alarmingly, no touchdowns.

The eyeball test was roughly the same: conservative and reserved game plan, coupled with limited playing time, but the translation was solid for Week 1.…

Robert Griffin III needs to return to RG3

In 2013, the Washington Redskins and RG3 were “all in for Week 1.” At the time, no one knew how the season would play out. Sure RG3 looked healthy but was he really? Only time would tell. It did not take long for the league, announcers and fans to realize that RG3 was still feeling the effects of his devastating injury. RG3 was no longer RG3; he had become Robert Griffin III. In order for the Washington Redskins to be successful in 2014 they need Robert Griffin III to once again be RG3.…
