Possible new names for Washington’s football team

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

It would seem the writing is on the wall for the Washington Redskins nickname no matter how hard owner Daniel Snyder continues to pound his drum and say "Hey look! I'm pounding a drum! That means I'm pro-Indian! Hey-a hey-a, hey-a hey-a!" The U.S. Patent Office canceled the team's trademark on ...

Someone Please Remind the Redskins They Suck

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

It started innocuously enough this preseason with Rex Grossman, who proclaimed that the Washington Redskins were the team to beat in the NFC East. We all had a hearty chuckle and said, "Oh, that Rex." Trouble is the Skins haven't stopped talking ridiculous nonsense ever since. First, there was DeAngelo Hall chiming in ...

It’s Good to See Albert Haynesworth Back in the News

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Thank you, Phillip Daniels. Seriously, why did it take so long for somebody within the Washington Redskins organization to call out Albert Haynesworth, and by extension head coach Mike Shanahan, for the disaster that situation has turned into? The simple truth is Haynesworth and Shanahan have been a bad match from the ...

Ladies And Gentlemen, The Washington Rex-skins!

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Frankly, I didn't even know Rex Grossman was still playing professional football.

Well now the Washington Redskins, bastions of wise free agent decisions, have signed "The Sex Cannon" to a one-year ...

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

The NFL is bigger and more popular than ever. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the league is better. There appears to be a large number of just awful teams this season. I’m talking absolutely putrid. Like teams you know are going to lose all week long. My roommate relayed a conversation he had ...

Fail To The Redskins

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Every year ESPN The Magazine releases an issue ranking all teams in the four major sports leagues from first to worst. So far the Washington Football Club seems like it is in a single-minded pursuit to claim the prize as the worst in all of sports -- and even if ...

A Rumors And Rants History Lesson: Frank Filchock

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

He was a celebrated college hero from my beloved alma mater I had never heard of.  A quarterback so good he stole playing time from Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh.  He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II only to come home and play a major role in one of ...
