The Redskins’ Season Starts Now, Stay Informed All Year

skins

Although our Washington Redskins regular and playoff season is over, there will be a lot going on between now and the 2016 football season.  The East West Bowl game was last Saturday and the Senior Bowl is January 30th, and  you’ll probably see some future Washington Redskins playing in these games.  NFL coaches coach both the North and South teams and virtually all NFL teams have scouts and coaches scouting the practices and the game.  These games give clues to who the teams should pick in the April 28-30 NFL Draft.

Redskins Season Ends With Bright Future Ahead

skins

Nobody likes to end the season with a loss, but the Skins faithful have plenty to be thankful for. For one thing, we have a great franchise quarterback – but the best part about it is ending the season with Cousins still healthy.

The team is a strong cohesive unit without all the ‘drama queen’ issues that so many other teams went through this year. The coaching staff is not only competent, but works well with each other while retaining the respect of all the players.

Did I mention we won the division?

I’d say we did more than okay this season…

Wild Card Playoff: Packers at Redskins

skins

It was the calm before the storm; our Redskins were 2-4 and heading into Game Seven with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, when Coach Jay Gruden called a “Code Red”.

The media had been posting mostly negative articles about our team and ridiculed Gruden’s “Code Red” remark. Little did they know that this team was about to overcome their new team problems as they regained previously injured starters. Together, players and coaches, through rigorous long hours of hard work and film study progressed because they held themselves accountable. Players learned from their mistakes, missed assignments, blown tackles and blocks, penalties, all became valuable learning experiences. Kirk Cousins became obsessed with film study and got better. Veteran leaders behind the scenes became mentors, stressing the pride that comes with winning and letting the younger players know that they didn’t intend to play for a losing team.

Week 17: Redskins @ Cowboys – “Champs vs Chumps”

skins

Where we stand right now:

  • This will be the final regular season game
  • Our Redskins have already won the NFC East Division and the game will have no bearing on the playoffs
  • The Dallas Cowboys will be chomping at the bit not only to beat us but to get the sweep
  •  
     They want a sweep and want to look good at home, but like my Granny always used to tell me:

    “Your wants won’t hurt you.”

    Week 16: Redskins Win More Than A Game in Philadelphia

    skins

    The Washington Redskins obviously weren’t paying attention in preseason.

  • They forgot the “football experts” picked them to end up dead last in the NFL.
  • They forgot the “football experts” picked them to end up dead last in the NFC East Division.
  • Dan Snyder forgot he was supposed to keep Jerry Jones’ trophies and Roger Goodell’s Mercedes polished.
  • Jay Gruden forgot he was supposed to cut Chip Kelly’s yard and take out Tom Coughlin’s garbage.
  • And last but not least Kirk Cousins forgot he wasn’t supposed to be “starting quarterback” material.
  •  
    Instead they stomped a 30 burger mudhole in the Philadelphia Eagles, shocked everyone except the Redskins players, coaches & fans and committed “Grand Theft Division™” in front of a TV audience numbering in the tens of millions.
