Redskins sign Mark Sanchez

The Washington Redskins signed journeyman QB Mark Sanchez to back up Colt McCoy, the former number two who became the starter after Alex Smith was lost for the season with a broken fibula and broken tibia. Sanchez was presumably chosen over other uninspiring candidates because of his ties to various members of the Redskins offensive coaching staff. Offensive Coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was the Jets QB coach from 2009-2012 when Sanchez was the starting QB of…

Redskins Goats & Greats: Game 10

GOATS ALEX SMITH — I hate do kick a guy when he’s down, but Alex Smith struggled mightily yesterday before the gruesome injury that ended his 2018 season. He completed a mere 12 of 27 passes for 135 yards and two interceptions. At times, Smith seemed to move the team well, but the pick-6 thrown in Houston’s end was by far the biggest play of the game (as far as determining the outcome) and Smith’s…

The Redskins are now riding with QB Colt McCoy

The Washington lost starting QB Alex Smith for the season.  Smith got sacked in the second half and during that Sack, Smith suffered a compound fracture with a broken tibia and fibula.  Needless to say, Smith is done for the rest of the season. With that, the first place Redskins will turn to QB Colt McCoy.  With the loss to Houston today, the Redskins fall to 6-4 and Dallas improved to 5-5.  Washington faces Dallas…

Redskins Stock Report: Preseason Edition

BLUE CHIP STOCK OF THE WEEK The young Redskins defensive line, particularly Alabama teammates Jonathan Allen and Da’Ron Payne, demonstrated why the team invested so heavily in the position the last two years. Payne and Allen repeatedly stuffed the Jets running attack during their two defensive series on the field last Thursday. Payne came up with a fantastic sack on the third play from scrimmage, when he showed his hands early and blew past former…

Redskins sign QB Colt McCoy to a contract extension

Well, if you were wondering whether the acquisition of QB Kevin Hogan signaled a move away from QB Colt McCoy, think again.   McCoy, the backup quarterback for the Redskins since  2014, signed an extension through the 2019 season. The value of the extension is reportedly $7 million with several void and buyback provisions.  McCoy’s 2018 contract is totaled at $3.6 million. With Alex Smith signed long term, McCoy appears to be set to be…

Redskins Stock Report: Preseason Week 3

BLUE CHIP STOCK IF THE WEEK Chase Roullier — It’s not a great sign when a backup center is your blue chip stock of the week, but that’s where the Redskins offense is right now. Roullier, a rookie sixth round draft pick (199th selection overall) from Wyoming, played well on Sunday. His shotgun snaps were all on target and he seemed to handle his assignments well. Certainly, he never appeared overmatched or nervous about his…

BLUE CHIP STOCK OF THE WEEK Nico Marley — The undrafted rookie linebacker was easily the start of the night for the Skins, sacking the quarterback, almost getting a second sack, and leading the team with four tackles. He really popped up, didn’t he?” said head coach Jay Gruden after the game. The coach didn’t have much good to say about anything or anyone connected with the team, but Marley was a rare exception. It…
