I’ve spent my entire career in newspapers. There’s nothing I love more than telling stories. Now, thanks to program director Chris Kinard and the good folks at 106.7 The Fan, I get to do that in a new medium, radio, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve been hired to cover the Redskins for our station. That’s something I got a taste of working for the Washington Times.

I’m from Silver Spring. I went to Gonzaga High and the University of Maryland. I live in Bethesda. Some would have you believe that makes me the equivalent of a unicorn – a honest-to-goodness native Washingtonian.

But I know there’s plenty of you out there who grew up here, in Bowie or Kensington, in Annandale or Woodbridge, in the District or in Ashburn, who live and die with these local teams. I’ve seen pretty much everything D.C. sports has thrown at you in recent years – some good, sure, but plenty bad.

The Case for Redskins Colt McCoy

The sample size is small: A game and a half and two wins to his name. But when a team has only won three games total this late in the season that is enough.

Griffin, Offense Not Good Enough in Close Loss to San Francisco

Injuries Mount in Redskins 17-13 Loss to San Francisco

5 STORYLINES: Redskins at 49ers

Every Redskins game from here on out will put an inordinate amount of attention of quarterback Robert Griffin III. That’s only natural. The franchise quarterback hasn’t looked like one since 2012.

The Muting of Redskins Quarterback Robert Griffin III

RGIII received a message from his coach and executed it flawlessly. Griffin was muted, succinct and never off message in his press conference Wednesday afternoon.
