Who would you rather see in the burgundy and gold, Manning or RG3?
After 14-seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was released and is a free agent. The Washington Redskins are planning to make an aggressive effort in bringing Manning to the DMV, according to the Washington Post. The Post also reported that it’s unclear if the Redskins will try to make a push to draft Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III in April. Colts owner Jim Irsay did not want to pay Manning a $28 million bonus that was about to come due because he does not believe the player can fully come back from his third neck procedure in 19 months, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Redskins along with Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, and the New York Jets all have been rumored as possible …

The Redskins are back at the free agency table and starting to make moves. Whether they eat sensibly or stuff themselves yet again on bloated contracts, that is (as always) the question.
After months of staying on a “we don’t want the Redskins to go after high-priced players in free agency” diet, folks are starting to cave. Now that a smorgasbord of tasty wide receivers, appetizing lineman and succulent quarterbacks (at least compared to the perception of what’s currently on the local shelves) are being carted out, the smell of signings is becoming too much to bare. Forget light snacks; fans can taste the all-you-can-eat bar and they want it. Now. My fear is the Redskins brass might as well. Everyone, push away from the table. Early on in free agency the burgundy and gold have made a sensible signing (re-signing Santana Moss) a bold addition at a position of need (defensive lineman Barry Cofield) and tacked on an empty …

Taking a young passer for a team with so many issues would indeed be fitting a square peg into numerous round holes.
Quarterback is the most important position in all of American team sports. The Washington Redskins, in all reality, do not have a viable one. But that does not mean selecting a passer with their first round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft is the proper call. Certainly not while they still have no sense of direction as to where this organization is headed. Of course everyone wants their team to have a "franchise" quarterback. It's certainly the warm and fuzzy move, what with the promise that these youthful gunslingers bring to the table and the belief that their laser-like throws can magically cure all ills. The problem for the Redskins in this case is that their current roster misfortunes stretch so far and wide (insert your Albert …

Ire toward Redskins deserved, but misguided if not aimed at the top.
Some say it takes three weeks to create a habit. After 11 years of largely losing seasons, inept management and countless gaffes on and off the field that would make the Three Stooges cringe, Washington Redskins fans should be as precise with their end-of-year criticisms as the finest Swiss watch. Yet like many a Donovan McNabb pass, Graham Gano kick or Mike Shanahan personnel decision, they are missing the mark. Some are directing their venom at Shanahan, the two-time winning Super Bowl coach who in his desperation to drink again from the cup of glory and regain his genius reputation that was muddied at the end of his tenure in Denver brashly made heavy-handed "the future is now" type moves in his first season. This even though it was …
