Foster’s alleged victim told police that the NFL player slapped her phone out of her hand and then slapped the right side of…

Redskins sign Mark Sanchez

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

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…

Adrian Peterson Wins Player of the Week Award

Adrian Peterson Wins Player of the Week Award

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week minutes ago. Peterson continues to showcase the ageless skills that have made him one of the steals of this year’s afterthought free-agent market. His spectacular 64-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter sealed the Redskins‘ 20-13 victory over the New York Giants. The 33-year-old churned out 149 yards on 26 carries and, in the process, passed Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett for…

Redskins Trade for DB Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

Redskins Trade for DB Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix

The Washington Redskins bolstered their injury-plagued secondary by adding safety Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix in a trade that sent a fourth round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft back to the Green Bay Packers. Clinton-Dix, 25, brings veteran leadership and superb athleticism to the Washington defensive backfield that is currently without CB Quinton Dunbar (nerve damage) and rookie 4th round pick Troy Apke. Presumably, Clinton-Dix will slide into the  free safety spot opposite strong safety D.J. Swearinger,…
