The endless genius of the NFL can’t be completely quantified. But part of pro football’s popularity is burning its image in our culture and our consciousness. While baseball and basketball have their July 4 and Christmas brands, they are afterthoughts, or leftovers, compared to the NFL’s hallmark roll call.
Brian Orakpo, in an interview with Jim Rome, talked about the emotional release he felt after getting a win, what it was like playing on a baseball field, and how much he hates the Redskins’ early bye.
The Redskins offense found their best rhythm of the season on a drive where they switched to the hurry up offense after the Raiders took a 14-0 lead late in the first quarter. The Redskins appeared unstoppable during that drive but Griffin was flagged for intentional grounding which derailed everything.
It started like the previous three games, but for the first time this season the Washington Redskins were able to walk away as victors.
The Washington Redskins will be without tight end Jordan Reed this week. The rookie suffered a thigh contusion in last weekend’s loss to the Detroit Lions.
The conflicting reports that began to emerge Sunday morning as to the status of Terrelle Pryor are beginning to find harmony and it appears the Oakland Raiders will be going with Matt Flynn against the winless Washington Redskins.
Redskins Nation might be in the throes of despair in the wake of Washington’s stunning 0-3 start, but the players in Ashburn aren’t.
The Washington Redskins may be thin at tight end this weekend as they search for their first win of the season against the Oakland Raiders.
It is unclear whether Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn will quarterback the Oakland Raiders Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
Pryor took a nasty shot to the head as he was hit by multiple defenders on what appeared to be a design run. And maybe this will serve as the 1,000th warning to Redskins nation as they clamor for Robert Griffin III to become more of a threat in the run game.
