New Washington Redskins Defensive Lineman Stephen Paea Looking Forward to Bringing Haka to Washington D.C.

Players are known for having all sorts of pregame traditions. Some like to pray before a game. Others have to go to the bathroom. For some it's a particular pregame meal. For new Washington Redskins defensive lineman Stephen Paea it has been a pregame Haka.

Daniel Snyder must be more out front in defense of Redskins team name

“Redskins owner Dan Snyder would be smart to lobby the review panel on his team’s behalf. If AP bans the use of Redskins, the term will greatly decrease to exist in the media. And, that will be the first major loss in this long-running dispute that one day leads to the team abandoning the name.” ~ Rick Snider, Redskins Name Faces Watershed Moment, Mar. 30, 2015, Washington...

The Washington Redskins Have Not Given up on Robert Griffin III

Washington Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III has struggled immensely to even maintain his starting job following a successful 2012 rookie season. That is probably why the team plans to host Marcus Mariota, who the Redskins could potentially select with the fifth overall pick in this year’s NFL draft. This coupled with the fact that head coach Jay Gruden is not shy to...

WATCH: Washington Redskins’ FedEx Field absolutely screws up national anthem

When you are playing a countries national anthem, there’s one thing you absolutely have to do right: play the country’s national anthem. It’s safe to say that FedEx field failed.

Why the Washington Redskins absolutely can’t draft Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota is not the answer. Please, Washington, don’t make this mistake again. When Jay Gruden told us that Robert Griffin III was going to be the starter heading into the season, I was fine with that. If there’s any semblance of hope left for RGIII, they might as well figure it out now and get it over with. Here’s the thing the Redskins have to realize: they suck ...

Redskins Planning to Host Marcus Mariota

The idea of the Washington Redskins selecting Marcus Mariota in the first round of the upcoming NFL draft has started to take over the football world. Would they really go after Mariota after investing so much in Robert Griffin III just three years ago? That’s almost literally the million-dollar question. If the Redskins’ plans to bring Mariota in for a visit is any indication...

Robert Griffin III has the higher ceiling, but not in the Gruden offense

Down here in DC, we are fond of saying Robert Griffin III should start because he has the highest ceiling. Hog Heaven is a Griffin supporter, but even we know that notion is out of date. Griffin has the highest ceiling if his coach (and he) design an offense to exploit Griffin’s talent as a dual threat … at least sometimes. Jay Gruden is searching for the next Brad Johnson, it...

Jay Gruden wants Redskins to trade Robert Griffin III
