photos from the sidelines: week 2

(photo by Brian Murphy) Okay, so the Washington Redskins aren’t exactly ready for prime time just yet. While there were still a few positives to take away, the simple fact that the Redskins continue to find ways to lose to a St. Louis Rams squad that has trouble consistently beating anyone else is enough to put a damper on the excitement level Week 1 brought to the nation’s capital. While quarterback Robert Griffin III continues to find new and creative […]

photos from the sidelines: week 1

(photo by Brian Murphy) As you know by now, the Washington Redskins started their season off with a bang — shocking the New Orleans Saints 40-32. The offense, led by a gentleman named Bob Griffin, looked better than it has in a while. The defense, thanks to the inspired play of a couple lesser-heralded safeties, got timely turnovers. And special teams … well … they were definitely “special.” All in all, it added up to what was probably the most […]

photos from redskins training camp

(photo by Brian Murphy) The Washington Redskins officially kicked off the most highly-anticipated training camp of the Mike Shanahan Era late last week. That’s what happens when a franchise that has lacked a true franchise quarterback for more than 20 years trades away a stack of high-draft picks for the right to select Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Robert Griffin III. So while ‘Skins fans are typically quick to proclaim “This is the year the Redskins finally turn the corner and […]

In addition to seeing highly-touted players such as first round draft picks Filip Forsberg and Tom […]

tiger woods wins at congressional

(photo by Brian Murphy) Regardless of what some may think of how Tiger Woods carries himself away from the golf course, there’s little doubt that the world of golf is much more interesting when he’s competitive. This weekend, Woods outlasted his competitors to win the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club for the second time in the six year history of the event. Just as importantly, the win was his third of the year and the 74th win of his […]

2011 redskins season in photos

(photos by Brian Murphy) For better or for worse, another year of disappointing football has come and gone in our nation’s capital. And while theĀ 2011 season wasn’t exactly what fans of the Washington Redskins hoped for, it wasn’t all bad. Head coach Mike Shanahan continues to retool and reshape his roster — dumping overpaid and underwhelming players in hopes of building a younger and hungrier roster. The Redskins are no longer the oldest team in football. Nor are they the […]

covering the 2011 army-navy game

(photo by Brian Murphy) Please forgive me for the lack of posts on the website this week. I’ve been a little under the weather,* so everything else has had to be put on hold. *On a side note though, if you’re interested in losing five pounds in 24 hours, I’d highly recommend food poisoning. It’s really, really effective. In the interim though, I thought I’d share a link to my photos from the 2011 Army-Navy game. I know most of […]
