photos from the sidelines: week 2

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins have not gotten off to a very enjoyable start in 2013. The offense, especially in the first half, has been missing in action. The defense, pretty much every time they take the field, has looked completely overwhelmed and under-prepared for seemingly whoever lines up against them. Oh, and the special teams has done nothing worth highlighting — unless you’re a fan of missed field goals, shanked punts, poor returns and penalties. So yeah […]

recapping 2012: 21 redskins games in 21 photos

(photos by Brian Murphy) In a matter of hours, the Washington Redskins will officially kick of the 2013 campaign when they face the Tennessee Titans in their preseason opener. Like every other ‘Skins fans out there, I too am exciting to see what this season has in store for the burgundy and gold and it’s a safe bet most of the day will be spent staring at the clock, wishing it was time for kickoff. To help pass the time, […]

photos from 2013 redskins rookie camp

(photo by Brian Murphy) One year ago, the Washington Redskins held a rookie camp that represented the debut of Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Robert Griffin III. Considering how many decades it had been since the Redskins had anything that remotely resembled a franchise quarterback on the roster, the entire D.C. metro area was eager to see RGIII don the burgundy and gold for the first time. Needless to say, things are much more subdued in 2013. With no first-round pick […]

photos from the sidelines: wild card weekend

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins have qualified for the postseason three times since I began covering the team and while each of those three seasons was different, they all unfortunately ended the same — with a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The 2005 Redskins were just happy to be there, after barely squeaking by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the opening round and the ’07 Redskins were emotionally spent after needing to play perfect football the final month […]

photos from the sidelines: week 17

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins did the unthinkable Sunday evening — they not only rose to the challenge of playing against their hated rival on a national stage with a playoff birth of the line, but they managed to exceed expectations in the way they handled the Dallas Cowboys. Their 28-18 victory was a blast from the past, as the Redskins ran up and down the field en route to their first NFC East title in 13 years. […]

photos from the sidelines: week 16

(photo by Brian Murphy) There was a point in time earlier this season when fans of the Washington Redskins were forced to cringe and avert their eyes whenever the defense took the field. Thanks to a paper-thin secondary and a nonexistent pass rush, Washington’s defense struggled to do much of anything right during the first half of the 2012 season and the Redskins looked dead in the water at 3-6. But then a funny thing happened. The team used the […]

photos from the sidelines: week 15

(photo by Brian Murphy)   I have a confession to make — I’m a Cleveland Browns sympathizer. I would never consider myself a fan of the Browns, but seeing them routinely finish as one of the NFL’s worst teams year in and year out has gotten me to the point where I’d like to see them turn things around.* *And let’s be honest, it’s pretty easy for ‘Skins fans to root against Baltimore and Pittsburgh anyway, so pulling for a […]
