(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold It wouldn’t have surprised me if fans of the Washington Redskins were less than enthusiastic about the team’s decision to hold their annual alumni homecoming game Week 9. After all, the Redskins came into the game against the San Diego Chargers winless in these nostalgic affairs — having lost 21-13 to Carolina last season and 19-11 to San Francisco back in ’11. And yet, I can’t help but […]

(ExtremeSkins photo) 1. “Battle Born” by Five Finger Death Punch The list of areas the Washington Redskins need to improve upon is still lengthier than the list of what’s going right for the franchise, but that’s beside the point for the moment. That’s because the Redskins earned their second win of the season — in comeback fashion, no less — scoring a touchdown in the final minute of play to complete a thrilling 45-41 win over the Chicago Bears Sunday.

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “All Nightmare Long” by Metallica Before the first quarter had even finished it looked like the Washington Redskins were once again destined to disappoint. A blocked punt for a touchdown and an 18-yard touchdown reception by a rookie tight end allegedly named Mychal Rivera had ‘Skins fans in a dark, dark place as they watched their favorite football franchise once again falter in the opening frame. The offense once again struggle to move the ball […]

(ExtremeSkins photo) 1. “In The End” by Black Veil Brides By now, it’s safe to say that fans of the Washington Redskins knew coming into the game, Washington was 21-0 in home games against the Detroit Lions since 1937. But how bad have things gone south for the burgundy and gold in just three weeks? The Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers and Lions are 3-0 against the Redskins, and 1-5 versus the rest of the NFL. Coming off of last […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Curse Me Good” by The Heavy For two straight games now, the Washington Redskins have looked completely overwhelmed in the first half against a highly-motivated opponent. In the season opener, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly wanted to make a strong first impression as he made his NFL debut. His Eagles came out the gate with a renewed sense of urgency and dictated the pace and tone of the game to the Redskins almost immediately. […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Halfway There” by Soundgarden During the Mike Shanahan era, the Washington Redskins defense has had little trouble making a splash right out of the gate. In fact, Jim Haslett’s men have now scored a touchdown in all four home openers — starting with DeAngelo Hall’s 33-yard fumble recovery against Dallas in 2010, followed by Ryan Kerrigan’s nine-yard interception return for a touchdown against the New York Giants in ’11 and let’s not forget Rob Jackson’s […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Have A Cigar” by Pink Floyd Historically speaking, the third preseason game is the most important preseason game. Typically, teams use it as a dress rehearsal for the regular season — allowing the starters to play for most, if not all, of the first half. Well, as you know by now, the Washington Redskins aren’t like most teams. With starting quarterback Robert Griffin III coming off of major knee surgery and backup quarterback Kirk Cousins […]
