When the Redskins announced their youth movement out of training camp, it wasn’t really that profound of a statement. Yes, the team would have a lot of younger players on the roster, but the core group of starters had plenty of experience, especially on offense.
Halfway through the season, injuries and performance have forced changes to the starting lineups, and the result is a much different—much younger—Redskins lineup.
Yesterday marked the first career starts of running back Roy Helu and offensive guard Maurice Hurt. It was the second career start of receiver Leonard ... Read More

Welcome to our newest feature of WOW's Football Friday - Fan Stories! Terry Brown shares her favorite Redskins memory below...
It all started with my mom. When the 'Skins came in 1937 my grandfather started taking my mom, then 10, to the games. In 1941, he bought season tickets. If my mom was still alive, this would be her 70th season attending games. So we grew up on Redskins football!
On January 10, 1983, my brother, Mike, and I camped out in front of RFK for playoff tickets to the game against the Vikings. (I had already stood in line ... Read More

There isn’t much to hang your hat on after a 23-0 shutout on the road. The team didn’t do any of the things that made it a winner in the first two weeks of the season, and the Redskins have slid to last place tie in the NFC East.
One of the few highlights of yesterday’s game, was that the Redskins limited the Bills to 23 points. That’s almost nine points fewer than their season average, and certainly left the offense with the opportunity to stay in the game.
The play ... Read More

Some games boil down to an obvious turning point, where a game is won and lost. Yesterday’s game didn’t have one for the Redskins, but there was a drive when the air went out of the Redskins sails.
The score was 6-9 early in the third quarter, and the Redskins needed a spark to get back in the game. The Redskins had just crossed the 50-yard line, and it was fourth down with two yards to go. Most teams--in most situations--punt on fourth down, for fear of losing the ball on downs. The ... Read More

Welcome to a new feature of WOW's Football Friday - Fan Stories! Emilie Donald from King George, Va, shares her favorite Redskins memory below...
I am a 44 year-old mother of four.
I have been passionate about the Redskins since my father began taking me to the games in the late 70's at RFK.
I have passed this passion down to my children of course!
Three years ago my daughter Victoria, who was 11 at the time, wanted to go to her first Redskins game. We got tickets to the Nov. 30, 2008 game versus the New York Giants ... Read More
