15-32, 311 yards, two TD, 4 INTs. I can’t wait around for him to be the 1st QB to break ESPN’s brand new QBR device.
Really? Rex Grossman? You bench Donovan McNabb for the Sex Cannon?
He’s baaaaaaaaaaaack. Just should you thought the NFL world was rid of Rex once and for all, he bubbles up within the nation’s capital, able to throw mad bombs down the sphere, sometimes to his own receivers.
And you thought the last three games of the season weren’t going to be interesting for the Skins.
Now, here we’re, with McNabb essentially finished in DC, and with Mike Shanahan essentially admitting colossal failure by creating an excellent larger failure. Fantastic. Nothing to determine here, please move along.
We sit up for 11-25, 286 yards, 2 TDs, 3 INTs from RexyBaby. We’re happy to have him back, but saddened to peer D-Nice go down like this. He deserves better. Ship him to Buffalo. I got a jersey looking forward to him.
That’s gonna do it for the week. Light day today (sorry!), we’re busy moving shop. We’ll inform you when and where and what that suggests for you because the time approaches.
For now, we leave you with this sage advice for all you young, swingin’ men accessible: Women don’t desire attractive men. They need men other attractive women find attractive.
We’ll see you tomorrow. Benefit from the weekend, everyone.
Clinton Portis’ seven-year charismatic and sometimes contentious stay ends as the Washington Redskins release him on Monday. For a while at least, he was the face of the franchise.
Injuries and money led to coach Mike Shanahan’s decision. Portis had played in only 13 games over the past two seasons because of a severe concussion in 2009 and a torn groin muscle in 2010. He was scheduled to make $8.3 million next season, and Shanahan made it clear at the NFL combine that the Redskins wouldn’t keep the 29-year-old running back at that price.
Portis told 106.7 The Fan that he was given a chance to restructure his contract, but he said it would be “hard to accept not being the go-guy.”
“It was kind of a mutual decision,” Portis said. “They could have sat and held on and played around. They gave me an opportunity to further my career and go somewhere where I can help.”
Portis is 77 yards short of 10,000 career rushing yards and leaves Washington 648 yards shy of one of his oft-stated goals — Hall of Famer John Riggins’ franchise record.
Portis, who has spent seven of his nine years in the NFL with the Redskins, played in only five games last season, rushing for just 227 yards and two touchdowns. Despite another injury-plagued season, Portis still considers himself an elite running back.
Portis will be 30 next season and he’s owed more than $8 million.
It was a total drama for the Redskins as after the snap on an extra-point attempt slipped through his hands in a one-point defeat, Washington Redskins punter-holder Hunter Smith said that he was really sorry for the mistake and he was willing to lose job for his mistake.
However, it happed later as Smith lost his job on Tuesday as the Redskins cut him from their squad.
It was really a rough game for the Washington Redskins as it was same for Redskins kicker Graham Gano.
It was frustrating for Gano as he missed two makeable field goals one of which was a 34 yarder banged clear off the left upright and the other was a 24 yarder wide left. His pain increased as he didn’t even get the chance to attempt once again in the final PAT.
It was really a bizarre finish of the game as the Redskins had to concede yet another defeat and this time it was against the Tampa Bay. It was really a frustrating one for them as they gave it up in a typical way.
Redskins failed to capitalize on their early lead as they had to concede a marginal 18-17 defeat in this game.
It was an important game for the Washington Redskins but they went there without their safety LaRon Landry as he was inactive in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was his fourth consecutive miss as he had a left Achilles’ tendon injury.
However, the situation became worse as Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers had to sit out for the third time in four games with his hamstring injury.
