how did you like the brandon meriweather era?

(photo by Brian Murphy) By now you’ve no doubt heard the news that Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been lost for the year after suffering a season-ending torn ACL against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday. This, of course, is a blow to Washington’s defense that barely had time to get used to Meriweather in the lineup. That’s because the two-time Pro Bowler was finally making his debut for the Redskins after missing the first nine games of the season after […]

(photos by Brian Murphy) 1. “No Tell” by Smoke & Jackal As the Washington Redskins prepared to take on the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, there was plenty of reason to believe the season was already lost. That because the Redskins stood at just 3-6 after pissing away victories against several beatable opponents during the first half of the 2012 season. Well, that and the fact that they were an NFL-worst 5-15 at FedEx Field since 2010. And they’d somehow managed to […]

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 […]

logan paulsen blazes his own trail to NFL starter

(photo by Brian Murphy) [Editor’s note: This season, the Washington Redskins have asked my brother, Joel Murphy, and I to occasionally write feature stories for the team’s official website, Redskins.com. This article, which was written by Joel, is our latest contribution, so please check it out.] When Redskins tight end Fred Davis injured his Achilles tendon during the first quarter of Washington’s game against the New York Giants in Week Seven, it was a situation backup tight end Logan Paulsen […]

you wouldn’t like mike shanahan when he’s angry

(photo by Brian Murphy) As most sports fans know by now, Mike Shanahan did not begin his coaching career with the Washington Redskins. Of course, Shanahan won two Super Bowls with John Elway and the Broncos during his 18 seasons in Denver. But people often forget it was with the Los Angeles Raiders that Shanahan first became an NFL head coach. The reason many sports fans either don’t know or don’t remember Shanahan’s time with the Raiders is because he […]

gary clark compares robert griffin III to lebron james

(photo by Brian Murphy) Even though the Washington Redskins had the weekend off, it was still a stressful Sunday for ‘Skins fans. That’s because playoff hopefuls were losing starting quarterbacks left and right, with Chicago’s Jay Cutler, San Francisco’s Alex Smith and Philadelphia’s Mike Vick all sidelined due to concussions. While Redskins fans have no love lost for any of those three franchises, the fact is quarterback Robert Griffin III has already missed time this season because of a concussion. […]
