"Redskins" Mentions Down 27% On NFL Game Broadcasts In 2014

NFL announcers said the word "Redskins" 472 fewer times this regular season than in 2013, a decrease of 27%. We expected the Washington nickname controversy to impact how announcers called games, but not to this degree; in fact, yesterday's slate of broadcasts only found "Redskins" being mentioned 13 times. » 12/30/14 10:16am 12/30/14 10:16am

Dan Snyder's Stooge Has Spotted A Symbol of Organizational Dysfunction

Here's a surprise: Craven Dan Snyder hand-puppet Chris Cooley took a break from manning the office of Exalted White Ex-Player at D.C.'s Snyder-owned ESPN radio affiliate to go in, for the umpteenth time, on former teammate Robert Griffin III, to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post yesterday. » 12/29/14 3:57pm 12/29/14 3:57pm

Kirk Cousins: If RGIII's The Starter, I Want Out

With so many crap teams hitting the reset button today, you may have briefly forgotten about Washington, the kings of dysfunction. Well, here's your reminder: they're still a mess, and they're content to come back with the same coach and GM. But it seems they're going to need to clear out at least one quarterback this… » 12/29/14 1:25pm 12/29/14 1:25pm

DeSean Jackson Delivers A Swift Kick To The Eagles' Playoff Hopes

DeSean Jackson had a fun Saturday. The former Philadelphia Eagle got revenge on the team that cut him as he racked up 126 receiving yards on four catches, including two receptions of over 50 yards. Sure, Washington's been a grotesque circus this season, but for Jackson, it must have felt nice to totally screw up… » 12/21/14 10:06am 12/21/14 10:06am

Santana Moss Goes Crazy On Refs After RG3 TD Called Back, Gets Ejected

Robert Griffin III ran for a diving touchdown as time expired in the first half against the Giants today. Or at least, it looked like he had. After the play was reviewed, head official Jeff Triplette announced that Griffin had lost possession in the air, and therefore it was ruled a fumble out of the endzone. Then… » 12/14/14 2:55pm 12/14/14 2:55pm

London Fletcher: Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett Is "Clueless"

This morning, former Washington linebacker and current CBS analyst London Fletcher openly wondered why defensive coordinator Jim Haslett's still employed. Fletcher played under Haslett for four seasons, and claimed that when he played, Haslett managed the defense so poorly, the linebacker would change the plays called… » 12/07/14 1:30pm 12/07/14 1:30pm

Cherokee Chief Apologizes For Dan Snyder Alliance

Dan Snyder had a lousy Native American Heritage Month. His team went 0-for-November, bottoming out in Indianapolis with RGIII on the bench and the owner's pet's career in worse shape than his left and right menisci. Plus there was that brutal New Yorker cover and a gloriously oblivious "Happy Thanksgiving" tweet sent… » 12/01/14 1:03pm 12/01/14 1:03pm

Say Goodbye To RGIII In Washington

We have, unless and until Colt McCoy gets hurt, almost certainly seen the last of Robert Griffin III in burgundy and gold. Now benched for two different backups to end two consecutive seasons, there is nothing left in D.C. for the former second-overall pick. Not if Jay Gruden remains coach, and given that Griffin's… » 11/26/14 9:03am 11/26/14 9:03am

Report: RGIII Benched, Colt McCoy To Start Against Indianapolis

Earlier today it seemed Jay Gruden really wanted to bench Robert Griffin III, and according to a report from Adam Schefter (and confirmed by Mike Jones), he's finally done it. Schefter, citing a team source, says that Colt McCoy will be Washington's starting quarterback when they take on Indianapolis on Sunday, not… » 11/25/14 11:29pm 11/25/14 11:29pm

Man, Jay Gruden Really Wants To Bench RGIII

Last week, Washington coach Jay Gruden apparently won the power struggle with his quarterback for Dan Snyder's favor. On Sunday, Griffin kept the Skins in the game; he didn't do anything particularly well, but he didn't do anything egregious enough to warrant being benched for Colt McCoy. He'd better keep that up,… » 11/25/14 2:19pm 11/25/14 2:19pm
