Washington Redskins are in need of a Leader. posted by Redskins Fan

The (3-6) Washington Redskins are having yet another disappointing season. RGIII when not battling nagging injuries has looked less than stellar. The defense is nothing to write home about and the head coaching lacks any sort of innovation, on either side of the ball.

However the most disconcerting thing about the Redskins this year is how they are handling themselves off the field. Multiple times this year, the Redskins’ locker room has caused the team headaches and distractions that while, never show up on the stat sheet, are definitely a contributing factor to their poor on field performance.

Players weren’t happy when word got out that certain veterans were laughing and joking in the locker room within a half-hour or so of a 10-point loss to the Seahawks last month. And then two days before last week’s game against the Vikings, a substantial group of players became so rowdy and disruptive that Robert Griffin III’s media session had to be moved outside the locker room. And there’s been evidence that the team feels RGIII has ‘alienated’ himself from the rest of the team.

This is troubling for a team that is struggling to win games, it shouldn’t be struggling to keep their team dynamic. This wouldn’t be happening with a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady on the team. Not that RGIII can’t be that focal leader for this team, but he has yet to display that.

For many years, it was London Fletcher, the defensive captain who never missed a game. But when he retired at the end of last season it left a vacuum that has yet to be filled. And if the Redskins don’t fill it soon, it can and will be a very long, disappointing season for the people of Washington.

Bucs players but up huge fantasy numbers in week 10 win. posted by Bucs Fan

After an otherwise dismal output during the beginning of the season, it was finally a great week to be a Bucs fantasy owner. Tampa Bay went with Josh McCown under center as the team squared off against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The signal caller connected with his two favorite receivers on multiple occasions, Vincent Jackson and Mike Evans. Both receivers were integral to the Bucs offense as they came away with touchdowns.

For those who thought drafting rookie Mike Evans to their fantasy rosters was a risk, that risk has paid off as the wide out is coming off a multi-touchdown game and continued to add to his fantasy stock by racking up huge yards against the Falcons.

After a rocky start at the beginning of the season, the rookie has come on as of late and really shined as he's seen several targets and hit pay dirt to drive up fantasy points.

And as for Vincent Jackson, he is always a must have on anyone’s roster. Even if he has off weeks from time to time, and for those who might be frustrated at Vincent Jackson’s inability to get touchdown points, do not be discouraged. The Tampa Bay quarterback clearly views Vincent Jackson as his go-to wide-out moving forward, especially in the red zone, and owners should not drop him from their roster.

And for those owners who don’t have McCown and are able to pick him up, this is the week to do so. With McCown playing in a week when most teams are on a bye, and his desire to build a bond with both Evans and Jackson, expect huge numbers in the coming weeks as the Bucs take on the Washington Redskins and the Chicago Bears in the next two weeks.

What Indianapolis Colts Must Improve Most Coming out of Week 10 Bye posted by Colts Fan

A bye week in the NFL is not just about getting banged up players back to full strength, it is also a time to self evaluate as a team and see what areas need improvement moving into the later half of the season.

While the Colts have a lot of positives that have led them to a 6-3 record and first place of the AFC South, there are a few areas in particular that need addressing if they hope to make the playoffs, and the biggest area is Andrew Luck.

Yes Andrew Luck has already established himself as an elite Quarterback, which is impressive, given his young age in the league, BUT that can also come back to bite him and the Colts if he’s not careful.

He knows he’s good and feels at times that it all rests on his shoulders to lead his team to victory. This isn’t college where you can rifle a ball into anywhere, look to Cook on Washington as a prime example. This isn’t college, this is the NFL where corners and safeties will and do make gun slinging quarterbacks pay.

Luck is this team. He is their undeniable leader and if his decisions are bad or too ambitious, the Colts will suffer which they have a few times already this year.

With 9 pics already on this season, Luck makes bad decisions like throwing loft passes over the field just to avoid a sack. Arguable the most dangerous throw in the game as he is not seeing where he is throwing, but just throwing to avoid the sack, and that’s when game changing pics happen. Ball security, not a loss of downs, need to be on Luck’s mind moving forward.

2014 Washington Redskins posted by Redskins Fan

The Washington Redskins were a complete mess last season. Quarterback Robert Griffin struggled after returning from injury too quickly. He eventually found himself riding the bench for the last three games of the season because of his poor performance and bickering with the coaching staff and even his teammates.

This year figures to be a rebound year for the Redskins. The front office hired Jay Gruden, former offensive coordinator of the Bengals who did a creditable job with Andy Dalton. He’ll be called upon to resurrect Griffin’s career. It helps that Griffin is not coming off an injury this time.  He also needs to be more cooperative and avoid being a Prima donna.

The team also did upgrade its offensive line to help Griffin. The Redskins signed Shawn Lauvao to a four-year deal and he’s expected to start at left guard. He’ll be joining left tackle Trent Williams and center Will Montgomery.

The big offseason move in Washington was the signing of DeSean Jackson after he was released by the Eagles. A speedy Jackson would contribute right away to the Washington offense, but he can also be a locker room headache aside from being constantly injured.

Pierre Garcon will be back, and the team expects he’ll be dynamic as he was last year. Despite the struggles of their quarterback, Garcon played well with 113 catches and five touchdowns. He’ll have his reception numbers go down with the entry of Jackson, though.

The Redskins defense was brutal last year, surrendering close to 30 points a game. So the management looked for help on defense by signing former Steeler Ryan Clark. They also acquired Tracy Porter who’ll join DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson. Redskins fans should also be excited with the signing of Jason Hatcher.

Joe's 2012 NFL Preseason Wrap-Up: Bears 33, Redskins 31 posted by Joe Anello

It was a great start and a great finish for the Chicago Bears as they won their first preseason game of 2012 thanks to a 57-yard field goal from Robbie Gould. That’s the most excited I’ll get about the fact that they won. Because as you all should know by now, WINNING IN THE PRESEASON DOESN’T MATTER IN THE SLIGHTEST. That being said, there are some positives to discuss coming out of the win. Let’s go through them so you can get back to not caring about preseason football.

-Jay Cutty to Brandon Marshall: the connection we were all hoping to see. Bear fans weren’t waiting long as Cutler hit Marshall on the first offensive play from scrimmage for 41 yards. Later in that same drive Cutler found his buddy again for another completion, this time for 20 yards. It was a breath of fresh air to see a QB/WR combination on the same page and talent level. When Marshall tip-toed the sideline and stayed inbounds I did a double-take. “Wait. A Bear wide receiver… making a wide receiver move?” I know. It’s crazy. That drive ended with a catch by rookie Alshon Jeffery and a short yardage score by the bruising Michael Bush. It was as complete an offensive drive as I’ve seen in my years of preseason football. And it all started with Cutler and Marshall.

-RG who? The Bears’ first string defense locked down the hyped rookie, never letting him find a groove and getting pressure in his face. Henry Melton and Julius Peppers showed plenty of spark in their time on the field. Shea McClellin also had a solid night operating from the end position. On their second defensive drive, Chicago showed an outside blitz with safety Major Wright, who chased Griffin III into the arms of Israel Idonije, who knocked away a football that Peppers was oh so happy to gather up. That turnover set up a nice, short TD run from Bush, his second of the night.

Notes from Day Three of the NFL Draft posted by Joe Anello

And it’s all over! Following a near eight hour session in which we saw rounds four through seven of the NFL Draft, we can finally put a cap on all these selections and start whipping around the league for analysis and impact. Now, as I don’t know as much about these late-rounders as I did the first two days’ worth of players, I won’t run you through too many opinions on their front. Instead I’ll add in my two cents about the draft presentations and coverage. I’ve got OH so many opinions when it comes to that.

-In one of the more interesting moves of the day, the Washington Redskins drafted Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins early in the fourth round. A perplexing move to some of the draft analysts, this pick sent the ‘net into a mini-tizzy as everyone tried to explain the rationale behind bringing in a competent QB to give Robert Griffin III pressure at his back. Cousins has the makings of a quality back-up in the NFL without ever having held a professional clipboard. Still, he was projected by some to have legitimate starting capability. He’s not going to wow you in any of his tape, but he’s an intelligent thrower who has enough arm strength to make nearly every throw. Let’s not get anything confused though. RG3 is the quarterback of the Redskins. Washington is just taking the Philly approach to things. They’ll draft Cousins, use him as a back-up in case Griffin ever gets hurt (which is likely given his play style) and then use his reputation to get assets back in a trade at some point. I get it.

2012 NFL Free Agency: Day One posted by Joe Anello

Free agency news is all over the internet with teams announcing the typical flurry of moves within the first hours of the new league year. I don’t have the patience for an introduction, so let’s just get to the news of the day!

-Mario Williams is all up in Buffalo as we speak, and he won’t leave unless he turns down a boatload of cash. If you’re even thinking about heading to Buffalo, you know what they’re going to pay you. You just want them to pay for a first class flight too before you sign the dotted line. The defensive end is going to be a very rich man. (Richer, really.) Likely joining him in upstate New York will be Saints wide-out Robert Meachem. Not a bad haul thus far for the lowly Bills. (Edit: Mario IS apparently leaving Buffalo without a deal and Meachem has signed with the Chargers. Well done Bills.)

-Marques Colston never hit the market, re-upping with the Saints shortly before free agency began. It’s a five year, $40 million dollar deal for the big-bodied receiver, who decided to remain a target of Drew Brees. (Smart move.) You can see the dominoes that fell after the Colston deal became official, with Chicago making a deal for Brandon Marshall ( my thoughts here) and the ‘Skins making a glut of Snyder-like moves, as you’ll read next…

-As always, the Redskins make a fool of themselves in free agency in mere minutes by signing two wide receivers and using too much cap space to address one position. (They’re still talking to Eddie Royal as well.) Josh Morgan signed on for a two-year $12 million dollar stint, coming off a whopping 15 catches in San Fran. And as the “the fuck are they doing?” deal of the say, the ‘Skins gave 42.5 million dollars on a five year contract for Pierre Garcon. With over $20 million in guarantees, this deal is utterly ridiculous. Sign him? Sure. But bathe him in pirate gold and fan him with virgin women? Probably a bad idea. The Redskins improved their lot at receiver, but not enough to warrant this kind of money dump. And this after they were docked salary cap space! Still, I love the 'Skins. What would free agency be without them?

The Final Drive: Week 15, 2011 posted by Joe Anello

I’m not sure what else you could have wanted from week 15 in the NFL. Two impressive streaks ended, the “Trap of the Week” proved to be true once again and one win never mattered as much as it did for Indianapolis. (And Candlestick Park was sans light… for a few second before auxiliary lighting come on. Not as much drama.) Many a-loser won on this day. Oddsmakers be damned! Get ready for The Final Drive!

(1-13) Indianapolis Colts 27
(7-7) Tennessee Titans 13

Oh Tennessee. How could you? You somehow managed to give their first lowly Colts a victory whilst in the midst of your own playoff hunt. For shame. While it’s nice to get a win (I’m sure), Jim Caldwell should still get effing fired.

(6-8) Kansas City Chiefs 19
(13-1) Green Bay Packers 14

Another streak brought to a necessary conclusion! Honestly, as much as we generally thought the Packers COULD do it, it’s probably better that they didn’t. Injuries to their offensive line killed them yesterday against the Chief pass rush, just one facet of a defense that made it difficult on Aaron Rodgers. Well done Romeo Crennel. Oh yeah, and the Chiefs can somehow still get into the playoffs.

(5-9) Washington Redskins 23
(7-7) New York Giants 10

BOOM! You got TRAPPED Eli! This was such an obvious upset to pick, even in a day that ended up with a metric ton of stunning results. How the Giants could come out and lay an egg like this when they had a chance to put some distance in front of the Cowboys is appalling. (And hilarious.)

(9-5) Detroit Lions 28

Pick Six: Week 14 posted by Randolph Charlotin

1. I’ve said before that the Patriots have the best pair of tight ends in the NFL. Let me just add that one of them is the best tight end in the NFL. Rob Gronkowski was a beast, breaking tackles en route to career high in receiving yards in a game (160) and set a new standard for touchdowns in a season by a tight end. He broke the record with his 14th TD grab then extended it when QB Tom Brady quickly tossed a pass over a blitz to Gronk. The Big Gronkowski did the rest, breaking a LB Ryan Kerrigan tackle then racing to the endzone and to the arms of a waiting Pats fan to celebrate.

2. The sideline argument between Brady and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien was blown way out of proportion. This happens during intense games. What no one said was that Brady’s frustration was building because the offense failed to score three red zone touchdowns. In fact, WR Wes Welker dropped a sure score just before the interception. This game wouldn’t had been close if the offense executed as Brady expected, and the sideline exchange of words would had never happened if Welker caught the previous pass.

3. It’s a lot easier to score when you don’t have to run 50 yards. DT Vince Wilfork pounced on a loose ball in the endzone, jarred out of QB Rex Grossman’s hand by DE Andre Carter, and Wilfork held onto the pigskin while under the pile for his first career touchdown. A lot easier than trying to return interceptions, right?

4. While I do support the league’s initiative for player safety, the way the game is being called is ridiculous sometimes. Washington LB London Fletcher was flagged for a personal foul when he led with his forearm just as Brady started going into his hook slide. Later Wilfork was flagged for hitting RB Roy Helu just after Helu stumbled to the ground without contact. Nevermind that Helu could had got up and ran. Should Wilfork be gentle and softly touched Helu down or something? Give me a break.

Hours Before Kickoff: Week 14 posted by Randolph Charlotin

What should had been a blowout of a clearly inferior team became an embarrassing one score win over the Indianapolis Colts as the defense gave up 21 points in the fourth quarter.

Two of those scores came at the expense of CB Devin McCourty. Colts RB Donald Brown swatted McCourty away with a stiff-arm en route to a 5-yard TD run. Less than eight minutes later, WR Pierre Garcon got behind McCourty and caught a 12-yard TD over McCourty’s head. McCourty lunged to no avail to stop the completion, beaten so badly that he couldn’t even look back to find the ball.

No one has an answer to what has happened to McCourty this year. Theories include the reduced off-season stunting his development, playing with an injury, the dreaded sophomore slump, opponents knowing how to get after him after viewing a season’s worth of film, to Devin switched places with his twin brother Jason for the season.

(Patriot fans probably wish they had Jason instead of Devin right now. Jason has 87 tackles, eight passes defended, two interceptions, a sack, and a forced fumble for Tennessee. That’s dramatically better than Devin’s output this year of 63 tackles and three passes defended.)

Pointing a finger to any one explanation doesn’t fully rationalize such a dramatic decline in Devin McCourty’s play. He’s gone from best corner since Ty Law to consistent burn victim a la Chris Canty. How does a former first-round pick go from one extreme to another in one off season is a mystery.

McCourty isn’t a Darius Butler case. Butler was an athletically gifted corner drafted in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Butler improved gradually and earned more playing time during his rookie season, and was starting by the end of the year.

Another year, another division title for Pats and Colts (NFL in 90) (Shutdown Corner)

If it's December, the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts must be clinching another division title. Indeed, no two teams have dominated their competition quite like the Pats and Colts since the NFL moved to eight four-team divisions in 2002. The Patriots clinched their sixth straight AFC East title on Sunday with a 41-13 romp over the Miami Dolphins. New England has won 11 of the 13 AFC East titles since 2002. Only the Jets in 2002 and the Dolphins in 2008 were able to disrupt the reign of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. The Colts, meanwhile, have won nine of the 13 AFC South titles after Sunday's 17-10 over the Houston Texans. They're just ahead of a group that are still in contention for their own division titles in 2014: the Green Bay Packers (7), the Seattle Seahawks (6) and the Philadelphia Eagles (6). (The Eagles' chances for winning the NFC East, however, took a big hit with their loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.) Check out our updated NFL playoff picture page .  A few other division title-related facts: • The Denver Broncos won their fifth AFC West title since 2002 by beating the San Diego Chargers, who also have five division titles to their name.  • Four teams have never won a division title under the current format: the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.  • Five teams have won one division title since 2002: Dolphins, Jets, Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders • All four teams in the NFC South have won three division titles apiece. Whoever "wins" the division this year will take the lead over the other three teams. Carolina currently holds the lead with a 5-8-1 record.  - - - - - - - Kevin Kaduk is a writer for Yahoo Sports ..
