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 […]

photos from the sidelines: week 14

(photo by Brian Murphy) At some point, we’re all going to have to stop and admit that there just might be something special about the 2012 Washington Redskins. Of course, that didn’t appear to be the case as this team limped into the bye week with a 3-6 record thanks in large part to a three-game losing streak. Now though, the Redskins appear fully capable of beating anyone and everyone — even when they’re not playing their best football. The […]

photos from the sidelines: week 13

(photo by Brian Murphy) We’re headed towards uncharted territory, boys and girls. After essentially ending the competitive portion of their schedule with a humbling loss to a pitiful Carolina Panthers team, the Washington Redskins were once again a doormat of a franchise, thanks to their 3-6 record. And then something crazy happened — the Redskins took the bye week and magically, one week later, all was right in the universe. Suddenly, the Redskins are playing meaningful football in December for […]

photos from the sidelines: week 12

(photo by Brian Murphy) If you’re on this website, then you’re probably familiar with my body of work. But if you’re new around these parts, here’s the rundown — I cover sports. I write about sports. I shoot photos at sporting events. Most of my days are spent thinking about … you guessed it … sports. That being said, while I was in Dallas for the Thanksgiving day game featuring the Cowboys and theĀ Washington Redskins, there was plenty of action […]

photos from the sidelines: week 11

(photos by Brian Murphy) As the first half of the 2012 season came to an end, the Washington Redskins were sadly predictable. The offense forgot how to score points, the defense continued to underwhelm and, as always, the Redskins struggled to win games at home. And then the bye week happened. Now all of the sudden, the offense once again scored points at will, the defense finally put together an effort they won’t be embarrassed of and the burgundy and […]
