Redskins missed the boat on Kirk Cousins trade

By

The ship has sailed on Washington Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins. Once an overrated commodity in the off season, the Redskins were unable to pull the trigger on a trade and will now suffer. The Redskins’ backup quarterback drew interest from a number of teams during the 2014 NFL Draft, but none of them interested general manager Bruce Allen. One interested party, the Cleveland Browns, offered a fourth round pick during the 2015 NFL draft according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The Redskins were reportedly looking for a second-round selection. Things have been even better in the preseason when a number of reports stated “Cousins had been outplaying Robert Griffin III.” But again, instead of pulling the trigger, the Redskins sat on it. At this point, we all saw what Kirk Cousins could do when RG3 was out, and it wasn’t that impressive. It...

NFL team names under scrutiny

By

Recently, the Washington Redskins had their trademark taken away and many are up in arms about it. The next step; taking away the team’s name altogether. Even though the Washington franchise changed their name once before (in 1936 with the blessing of then head coach and Native-American Lone Star Dietz) the Federal Government feels the name is too “disparaging” and time for a change. Maybe they’re right, but why stop there? There are plenty of teams that might be “pushing the envelope” just a bit. For this all-inclusive world we live in, here are some other teams that the Feds might want to consider going after next. Cleveland Browns: Look, if “Redskins” is offensive, then the “Browns” is right there too. What are they playing at? Sure, they say the team is named after the supposed “father of modern football” Paul Brown, but it seems a little too sketchy if you ask me. Tones of...

Welcome to the future of the NFL quarterback

By

The future of the NFL is upon us with quarterbacks like Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton as examples. Here’s a look at the future and the five franchise QB’s in the NFL. 5.  Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins : It’s no doubt why RG3 made this list with his spectacular play-making ability. His rookie season he put up 3,200 passing yards with 20 passing TD’s and only 5 int’s, and adding 815 rushing yards with 7 rushing TD’s as well. While he had a lackluster 2013 we will just chop that up to his injury at the end of 2012 season. We can fully expect him to bounce back to his peak form in 2014. 4. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers : Next on the list is Colin Kaepernick. While he was not drafted highly like RG3 he is just as spectacular to watch drafted 36th overall in the 2011 NFL draft. He replaced the injured Alex Smith in 2012 and lead the...

Redskins the real winners of the RG3 trade

By

With the selection of Greg Robinson on Thursday, the final piece of the 2012 pre-draft blockbuster trade has been accounted for. In the end, the St. Louis Rams received eight players and the Washington Redskins received just one. On the surface it would easy to say St. Louis won this deal, but looking closer, the Redskins are the real winners of the RG3 trade. The original deal: Washington gave up three first round picks (2012, 2013 and 2014) and a 2nd round pick in 2012. Through various trades over the last three drafts, St. Louis ended up with an absolute haul. Without the trade specifics, here is what the Rams ended up with: Greg Robinson, Alec Ogletree, Stedman Baily, Zac Stacy, Michael Brockers, Janoris Jenkins, Isaiah Paed and Rokevious Watkins. The Redskins ended up with Robert Griffin III. That’s a one heck of a package right there, but the NFL has become a pass happy,...
