(photos by Brian Murphy) 1. “Guilty Pleasure” by Gone For Days It’s hard to describe just how excited fans of the Washington Redskins were in the hours leading up to the home debut of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The parking lots at the stadium were buzzing with anticipation as giddy burgundy and gold-clad fans counted down the minutes until the doors opened and they were able to see their franchise quarterback take the field for the first regular season […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Blood Pressure” by Mute Math Nothing good comes from playing the St. Louis Rams. For starters, they’ve been the worst team in football (by a lot) since 2007. If a team like the Washington Redskins defeats them, it’s not particularly newsworthy because the Rams are a doormat. It’s simply considered taking care of business. But if a team like the Redskins loses to St. Louis, well … that’s just downright embarrassing. I know, because I’ve […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “So What” by Miles Davis The New Orleans Saints went undefeated at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in 2011. Heading into their season-opening match-up with the¬†Washington Redskins, they were 13-1 in their last 14 home games (including the playoffs). When the local fanbase is fired up, that dome is quite possibly the loudest in the entire NFL. And yet, none of that mattered as the underdog Redskins¬†silenced the Saints 40-32. Even though the Saints came into the […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Showdown” by Electric Light Orchestra It’s safe to say that the Washington Redskins’ home opener was one of the most highly-anticipated preseason games in recent history. Not only was it a chance for ‘Skins fans to see quarterback Robert Griffin III in person for the first time, but the opposing team just so happened to have a highly-touted rookie quarterback of their own. How rare was this exhibition match-up? Very. In fact, Griffin and Indianapolis […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Wake Up Call” by Maroon 5 Forget the final score. Sure, it’s nice that the Washington Redskins were able to make their preseason game against the Chicago Bears competitive before ultimately falling to the home team, 33-31. But at the end of the day, no one should give a damn whether or not the Redskins remained undefeated during the exhibition portion of their schedule. When it comes to preseason games, teams just want to a.) […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Do You Remember” by Jack Johnson It’s only fitting that Washington’s 2012 season begins against the Buffalo Bills. After all, the ’11 campaign effectively ended when the Redskins were embarrassed by the Bills 23-0 north of the border. Although Washington still had two months left of football remaining on the schedule, that humiliating blowout showed just how far the burgundy and gold had to go in their ongoing quest towards respectability. Not only was the […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Communication Breakdown” by Led Zeppelin This game, and the 2011 season in general, can be summed up by one sequence of plays that ended the first half. The Washington Redskins had the ball on the 4-yard line with 26 seconds remaining in the first half when quarterback Rex Grossman dropped back and threw a pass in the corner of the endzone to receiver Santana Moss. As Moss made a play on the ball, a Philadelphia […]
