The Washington Redskins tamed the Jaguars and are flying North to Ring the Eagles Bell.

The Redskins tamed the Jaguars and are heading North to Ring the Eagles Bell.


Is there really anyone surprised that Robert Griffin III will not be making it through a complete NFL Season AGAIN?  After Griffin was injured and couldn't move on a "no contact" play, the Football game continued as he laid there motionless.  Kirk Cousins throw a touchdown pass on his first play on the field and then the crowd cheered as RGIII was removed from FedExField as the Redskins starting quarterback.  I pray for Griffin's speedy recovery so that he can make it on the trade block by week 6.  The Seattle Seahawks knew what they were doing when they "Bullied" 3 first round draft picks from a desperate Washington team for the opportunity to have "RGKnee".

DeSean Jackson aggravated his shoulder early in the Jacksonville Blowout but will not be missing this match-up against his former Philadelphia Eagles team.  Jackson has been looking forward to making the second year Head Coach Chip Kelly and his Eagles pay for the decision to start gang related rumors and cut him.  I'm sure the shoulder may just need a "Get Right" Injection (much like the one RGII got his first year) and a "Addaboy" to be a dominate force on Sunday.  

During DeSean's Post Game interview at Redskins Park, there wasn't one person who could ask the "Million Dollar Questions".  "Does this remind you of Michael Vick getting hurt and then Nick Foles coming which ended up being your best year ever in the league?  How do you feel about having a real opportunity to be a Leading Receiver in the NFL now that you have a great quarterback to get you the ball?  When you score a touchdown against the Eagles on Sunday, what gang signs if any will you throw up at Coach Kelly?"

Alexander Ovechkin (Ovie) vs. Robert Griffin III (RGIII)

Robert Griffin III vs. Alexander Ovechkin

If you're a true Washington D.C . fan than you love the Washington Redskins and the Washington Capitals.  As the Washington Nationals and the Washington Wizards couldn't seem to get a winning season together, the Caps and Redskins had the "Superstar Additions" that gave our city hope.   In 2004, the Caps signed the most electrifying player to ever take the ice, Alexander Ovechkin!  A few years later, we witnessed one of the greatest quarterback draft classes that the NFL Combine has ever produced.  That was so exciting because the Redskins were guaranteed one of the best QB Rookies in the Nation.  Why couldn't we ride off in the sunset and have some rings or cups to show for these additions? 

Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby (Center for the Pittsburgh Penguins) were both promised to the be the best players in the NHL.  Ovie could out skill the skill players and punish the bruising brawling opponents.  There's certainly not many players like him but Crosby had a very similar skill set that set himself apart in pressure situations.  Crosby won the Olympics for Canada and the Stanley Cup for the Penguins as Ovie couldn't seem to claim victory in the "win or go home" games for Russia or the Caps.

The Heisman Trophy winning Robert Griffin III could arguably be the best player in the 2012 NFL Draft as the Washington Redskins traded up with Seattle for the second spot.  RGIII definitely has the potential to be great and has already done great things but wasn't the first pick overall for a reason.  Much like the Sydney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin comparison, the NFL has already highlighted Griffin as injury prawn and unable to 100% bounce back from them.  Although Andrew Luck (The 2012 NFL Draft First Overall Pick) has not won a Super Bowl yet which seems to be the way great players are measured, he's clearly a better quarterback and leader at this point than RGIII.

Washington Redskins 2014 lose their first game against the Houston Texans.

Redskins were no match for J.J. Watt

The game started with the Fox Commentators announcing that Washington Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden wanders around the stadium before the game with "No Clue" of where he is.  They then stated that Gruden had to call a taxi to get back to his hotel room in Houston.  By the end of the game it was pretty clear that he still may not know where his is.  Hopefully he can remember that he was hired to be the Redskins Head Coach and they need some more offense and a lot of help on the Special Teams.

After a couple of 1st quarter empty possessions, the Redskins managed to hand it off to Full Back Mike Sellers for a second attempt touchdown.  This would be the first and last time that Skins could find the sacred sod. The extra point was then blocked by none other than Super Star Defensive Lineman J.J. Watt which set the course of the remainder of the game.  The Houston Texans took advantage of a defensive blown play as they answered with a 76 yard touchdown toss to DeAndre Hopkins. On the Redskins next drive punted the ball into the hand of Alfred Blue (block punt) and he returned it for a touchdown.

The Texans number one draft pick Jadeveon Clowney left the game with an leg injury and did not return.  This really was not a big deal since Watt made enough plays for the both of them.  The Washington Redskins have the play of RB Alfred Morris to hang their hat on as he racked up.  Ryan Kerrigan made a great play to try and keep the Redskins in the game by stripping Arian Foster inside the 10 yard line.  The Washington Redskins just could not seem to get anything going and QB Robert Griffin III seemed have half of the skill, half of the speed or his Rookie year and only scored in one half of the game.
