In a bit of irony (if you want to call it that), one of the individuals responsible for Taylor’s death was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Wednesday. Charles Wardlow, 25, is the fourth man that has now been found guilty in the home...

REPORT: Tribal leader facing impeachment after Washington Redskins bribes

It can be hard to love the Washington Redskins, but at least it can’t get us fired. Unfortunately, that’s not true for Gari Pikyavit Lafferty, chairwoman of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, who is now facing impeachment charges, stemming from a September visit to Washington. While visiting Washington — all expenses paid by the Redskins, of course — Lafferty is accused of...

3 positions the Washington Redskins need to be targeting with their first pick

The Washington Redskins have been working at a disadvantage the last few years in the draft.

Doug Williams: RG3 still our guy

Aside from assurances from Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden that quarterback Robert Griffin III will be the starter in 2015, anticipation still grows among Griffin's non-supporters that the team might lean towards drafting Oregon's Marcus Mariota if they can make it happen. But it looks like Griffin has another important supporter in Washington - personnel executive...

Daniel Snyder must be more out front in defense of Redskins team name

“Redskins owner Dan Snyder would be smart to lobby the review panel on his team’s behalf. If AP bans the use of Redskins, the term will greatly decrease to exist in the media. And, that will be the first major loss in this long-running dispute that one day leads to the team abandoning the name.” ~ Rick Snider, Redskins Name Faces Watershed Moment, Mar. 30, 2015, Washington...

Why the Washington Redskins absolutely can’t draft Marcus Mariota

Marcus Mariota is not the answer. Please, Washington, don’t make this mistake again. When Jay Gruden told us that Robert Griffin III was going to be the starter heading into the season, I was fine with that. If there’s any semblance of hope left for RGIII, they might as well figure it out now and get it over with. Here’s the thing the Redskins have to realize: they suck ...

Redskins Planning to Host Marcus Mariota

The idea of the Washington Redskins selecting Marcus Mariota in the first round of the upcoming NFL draft has started to take over the football world. Would they really go after Mariota after investing so much in Robert Griffin III just three years ago? That’s almost literally the million-dollar question.
