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.

After the bye week the Redskins have to play the New England Patriots, but our chances will be good since we’ll get some of our injured starters back.

“If the goal for the Washington football organization is to confuse anyone and everyone possible, mission accomplished.”

Earth to Mike Florio: If it’s anyones goal to confuse the fans, it must be Pro Football Talk and Fox news.

Trent “Silverback” Williams

So how did the starting left tackle of the Washington Redskins end up with a nickname like “Silverback”? Well, as we all know right-handed quarterbacks have a blind side and its the left tackle who is mainly responsible for protecting the quarterback on pass plays. The “Silverback” nickname comes from the huge alpha male gorillas known for their protective nature and his leadership.
