  Redskins | Robert Griffin 'I wasn't healthy and it sucked'    Thu Jan 29, 08:21 PM

John Keim, from ESPN.com, reports Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III blames his 2014 woes on his injured ankle. Griffin said, "Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that. When you get broken and dragged home in the second week of the season ... When you and your team have big things in mind ... It's just getting healthy, getting the mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward for this year, and go ahead and win games and be playing again at this time next year."

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should not be giving up on Griffin. Things have gone off the rails for him since his breakout rookie season of 2012. We'll see if Griffin can get back on track this year. We see 2015 as a make-or-break season for the athletic quarterback.

  Redskins | Perry Fewell hired as secondary coach    Tue Jan 27, 04:28 PM

Former New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has joined the Washington Redskins as their secondary coach, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Fewell was a hotter name among the position coaches. He was interviewed by the 49ers, and there were some thinking the Bengals would take a look at the former Giants defensive coordinator.

  Redskins | Vic Fangio not offered DC job    Mon Jan 19, 03:51 AM

Former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio was not offered the DC job with the Washington Redskins following his interview on Sunday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: A curious move here. We thought Fangio would be the right fit, but apparently the team wants to take more time before they name a new defensive coordinator.

  Redskins | Meeting with Vic Fangio again    Sun Jan 18, 08:39 AM

Free-agent defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (49ers) will have a second meeting with the Washington Redskins about the team's vacant defensive coordinator position Sunday, Jan. 18. Fangio also met with Washington Saturday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Washington needs a serious overhaul on defense. Adding Fangio to run that side of the ball would be an upgrade.

  Redskins | Interested in Vic Fangio    Thu Jan 15, 03:04 PM

The Washington Redskins have interest in free-agent defensive coordinator Vic Fangio (49ers) for their vacant defensive coordinator position, per league sources.

Footballguys view: Whomever gets Fangio gets a very solid defensive coordinator. Turns out, Washington needs that badly.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to receive another chance    Fri Jan 9, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III likely will be given another chance to succeed, because teams should not give up on young quarterbacks, according to general manager Scot McCloughan.

Footballguys view: It's too soon (and Washington gave up too much) to give up on Griffin. We'll see 2015 as a year where he needs to get his career back on track. After a fantastic rookie season in 2012, Griffin has struggled to stay healthy and produce consistently. McCoughlan said Griffin needs to be surrounded by a strong running attack and a more reliable offensive line.

  Redskins | Jim Haslett let go    Wed Dec 31, 10:12 AM

Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has mutually agreed to part ways with the team Wednesday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: We're not surprised by this news. Haslett had been struggling to put a quality defense on the field for years now. Injuries at various positions didn't help, but Haslett's scheme was just not working.

  Redskins | Santana Moss wants to continue playing    Tue Dec 30, 05:38 AM

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss, who does not have a contract for 2015, wants to continue playing and would prefer to stick with the Redskins.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Washington wants Moss back. The veteran receiver appeared in only nine games this year, finished 2014 with 10 catches for 116 yards. We doubt he comes back, and there's probably not a lot of teams lined up for his services at this point in his career.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden does not commit to QB    Mon Dec 29, 08:58 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and the rest of the team's quarterbacks will be evaluated methodically during the offseason before a decision on a starter for the 2015 season is made, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Of course he didn't. The team is looking for Robert Griffin III to play better in 2015. Kirk Cousins is still with the team, and apparently doesn't want to be traded. More of the same from Washington is not good enough. Cousins struggled as a starter in 2014, but Griffin showed a *little* bit better confidence as a starter.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins has not asked for trade    Mon Dec 29, 03:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he has not asked for a trade and will be fine if he is a backup against next season. Cousins said he knows there are things he needs to work on during the offseason of improve his play.

Footballguys view: Cousins has not asked for a trade--yet. That could change if he becomes frustrated with the situation. Cousins wouldn't fetch that much in a trade if he was on the block anyway.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins itching for opportunity    Mon Dec 29, 11:49 AM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said it would be tough to return to the team in 2015 if QB Robert Griffin III was given the starting job. Cousins said he would talk to the front office.

Footballguys view: We can understand why Cousins wants his shot as a starter, but that may not happen in Washington. Cousins may request a trade if Griffin is named the top QB, but we can't imagine his trade value would be too high. Perhaps there's some team out there that would be willing to give up a mid-round pick.

  Redskins | DeSean Jackson makes big play    Sun Dec 28, 01:14 PM

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson caught a 69-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: Jackson's long run after a short catch highlighted his game-breaking speed that hasn't diminished one bit after the Eagles released him. If he can get consistent QB play, Jackson could approach WR1 numbers in 2015.

'We just want to make sure he doesn't aggravate it more, give him another couple days of rest and be ready to go Friday.'

Footballguys view: Yeah, this was pretty much expected. Griffin has shown better confidence over the last two weeks. We'll see if he can continue to build momentum for next year.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 24, because of a sprained shoulder. Head coach Jay Gruden said he does not believe Griffin's injury is serious.

Footballguys view: Washington is going to be wisely cautious here. Griffin has thrown for around 450 yards over the last two weeks combined. He' playing with a bit more confidence as he tries to build some momentum for next year after a bad 2014 season.

  Redskins | Redskins looking for wins from QB    Mon Dec 22, 01:39 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was benched earlier in the season in part because head coach Jay Gruden is looking for a quarterback that could lead the team to wins. 'That is the No. 1 factor, and that is it,' Gruden said. 'Obviously you look at the production and all that stuff, and what he could've done maybe, but winning football games is the only thing that matters to me for a quarterback. And it doesn't matter if they go 12-for-24 for 80 yards and we win, or if they go 28-for-35 for 400 [yards] and we lose, you'd rather have the 12-for-24. The ability to manage a game, stay away from the big turnovers and get the W is all that counts.'

Footballguys view: If that was the case, Tim Tebow would be a Gruden favorite. Quarterbacks are ultimately judged by their win/loss record, but much more goes into playing--and succeeding--at the position. Griffin gives the team their best shot to win, and Washington may give him another season to prove himself as the starter. There's a chance they could also decide to look for quarterback help through the NFL draft or free agency this offseason.
