Redskins rally in 4th quarter, defeat Cardinals 22-21

There were a few moments that, after a very solid outing in week one, Redskins fans may have believed they saw the return of “bad” Rex Grossman, especially in the first quarter. But in the fourth quarter, with the game on the line, Redskins fans also got themselves a healthy dose of “good” Rex Grossman […]

Redskins vs. Cardinals: 5 Keys to Victory

This Sunday’s game has all the potential to be what is commonly referred to as “The Letdown game.” The Redskins, and their fans, were jacked up beyond belief to take on the Giants, an NFC East rival who limped into last Sunday’s game after spending the better part of the last four years pounding the […]

Washington Redskins camp is in full throttle as we near week one of pre-season games.

Running back Ryan Torain, the presumed incumbent starter at the position heading into the 2010 position, suddenly doesn’t have such a stranglehold on said starting job anymore.
