At 21-7, the Washington Redskins made us dare to believe. They had followed the roadmap, creating turnovers and leading long drives for scores, which kept the ball out of Peyton Manning’s hand. And when DeAngelo Hall came up with the pick six, we felt that Washington was on their way.
But it was not to be. The Broncos got hot at the same time the Redskins’ offense went cold. Special teams chipped in with their own disasters and the next thing you know, Denver posted 31 in the fourth quarter to win the game going away.
This week the boys break down the game at Mile High. They measure progress-to-date for Robert Griffin III and the offense, while wondering how hard you can be on the defense. And what does this mean for the rest of the way?

A funny thing happened last Sunday. The Redskins were playing a solid game against the Chicago Bears; managing a close game in the first half and appearing the better side.
Then Jay Cutler got hurt.
Just as the collective football universe was writing of the Bears’ chances to win – a shootout occurred with Chicago hanging 300 yards and 24 points on Washington in the second half. But the Redskins would not be denied; racking up 499 yards, 209 on the ground, and plenty of their own points.
The end result was a 45-41 win.
This week the boys breakdown the win. Robert Griffin III appears to be back to his old self. Jordan Reed is a monster tight end. DeAngelo Hall had a great game. Brian Orakpo with his first defensive score. But then there was another breakdown on special teams. There was the foolishness of Brandon Meriweather. And the age of London Fletcher.
A lot to talk about this week.

The Washington Redskins did something last week they had not done all year: they won a game. It wasn’t the prettiest of victories, but the win in Oakland counts just the same.
This week the boys break down the first W of the season. The defense was much improved, hanging six points, seven sacks, and one forced fumble on the Raiders. The offense finally managed to get going before the break, and Robert Griffin III showed glimpses of his old self.
The bye week comes early this year, and then there is Dallas to follow. Some of the predictions might surprise you.

After three games it has become obvious that the Washington Redskins are not a very good team. In fact, the opposite appears to be true.
This week the boys look at the 0-3 start and the most recent loss to Detroit. Despite an improved performance, the gang is convinced there was no moral victory to be had. A hard look at Robert Griffin III is called for, as well as the state of the defense. And what of the road ahead – is relief in sight?
No matter what; Murf has one coach packed up and on his way out of town.

The Redskins’ season has begun and it is a nightmare.
The offense is anemic; Robert Griffin III is nowhere near the athlete as last year, the running game can’t get going; they can’t score, the defense is arguably the worst the team has had in the history of ever; and after the team gets thru with all that – they commit dumb penalties.
This scenario is a far cry from the soaring optimism of the preseason. The questions now center around RGIII and his health, the terrible play of the defense, the lack of discipline with penalties, and where do we go from here?
A lot to cover so pay attention!
