DC Sports Bog: You can get hurt during preseason and not blame the preseason

Wed, 08/26/2015 - 4:47pm
An injury in an NFL preseason game feels like an injury suffered in vain.There’s an inevitability about an injury suffered in practice, like the ones that felled Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick on Tuesday and Redskins linebacker Junior Galette on Wednesday. And there’s a weird nobility about an injury suffered in a regular-season game, as if trying to beat the Browns in October is a mostly valid reason for having your leg snap in half. But to see a body part break during a preseason game — when the results don’t count, and the beers sometimes cost more than the tickets — seems like the most monstrous of NFL fates.Read full article >>

2015 Football preview: Virginia Conference 8

Wed, 08/26/2015 - 12:24pm
Favorite: Battlefield (11-2)Taking over a program that has thrived with a smashmouth style during the past decade, new Coach Jared Van Acker will put a twist on the Bobcats offense following the resignation of Mark Cox. The hope is his no-huddle spread, combined with the I-formation look of old, will open space for electrifying, second-team All-Met wide receiver Zac Kerxton and alleviate the graduation of four offensive linemen. Battlefield will also look to playmakers like tight end Nick Shablom and defensive back Collin Parker to maintain the high level of play that has yielded eight straight playoff appearances.

Redskins Blog: Kirk Cousins says he’s more confident in Year 2 of Gruden’s offense, and the results back him up

Wed, 08/26/2015 - 11:59am
The carefully managed battle for the Redskins’ No. 2 quarterback job continues Saturday at Baltimore, where it’s Kirk Cousins’s turn to lead the second-team offense once the starters bow out.Drafted three rounds behind Robert Griffin III in 2012, Cousins had ample opportunity to seize the starting job last season after Griffin dislocated his ankle in Week 2. While he showed his upside as a quarterback — a strong arm, decisive reads and a quick release — he also gave coaches reason for concern by turning the ball over, finishing with nine interceptions and 10 touchdowns.Read full article >>

Redskins Blog: Redskins and Joe Barry making good use of the cover-three defense

Wed, 08/26/2015 - 10:45am
The preseason has given us a glimpse at the changes made by new defensive coordinator Joe Barry. The Redskins‘ defense lacked talent and failed to execute many of the schemes installed by previous coach Jim Haslett. We’ve already seen a more aggressive defensive line, with Barry switching to a one-gap 3-4 system. But the Redskins’ defense had bigger problems under Haslett. The secondary constantly had coverage failures, leading to big plays for the opposition. Barry appears to have simplified things somewhat, reverting to a lot of “cover-three” coverage.Read full article >>
