Is Mike Shanahan's decision to stick with the same lineup that got the Redskins to 3-9 in the long-term good of the organization?
While it may make sense on some levels for the Redskins to let Kirk Cousins start a game or two don't look for that to happen.
Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan says he won't begin 'playing for the future' over the last four game, insisting that his focus will remain on winning not evaluating.
Point-Counterpoint: With their playoff hopes barely on life support, should the Redskins make some lineup changes to see what they have in some younger players? Tandler and Tarik debate the question.
Entering this season, the Redskins' offensive line wasn't known for performing in beautiful harmony with precise choreography like "The Five Heartbeats."
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was inactive for Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams because of a right foot injury.
The left tackle that practiced with the Washington Redskins' first-string offense on Saturday afternoon was planning for his retirement two weeks ago. The left guard was a rookie. So was the right guard. And he practiced next to a right tackle who played with the second string all offseason.
Here are some observations from Saturday’s practice on Fan Appreciation Day at Redskins Park:
Things got pretty rough for the Washington Redskins' offensive line last season. If one more guy had gotten hurt or suspended, the team might have held a seance and tried to contact the spirit of Turk Edwards.
Trent Williams and Maurice Hurt were the last two Washington Redskins off the indoor practice field Saturday afternoon. While most of their teammates headed to lunch, and a few stragglers spoke to reporters, Williams tutored Hurt about squaring his shoulders to pass-rushing defenders and absorbing contact in the chest.
Cousins is a different case from, say, guard Adam Gettis or safety Bacarri Rambo.
"As long as the next man does his job," Gettis said, "we'll be fine."
