Brandon Banks spent part of his bye week in the film room with Danny Smith because something is not right. The Washington Redskins' return specialist has not been the explosive player he showed flashes of being in the past. Banks says he's carrying a right hip injury that likely will require surgery in the offseason – but that's not the whole problem.
Look at the Philadelphia Eagles: Running back LeSean McCoy and wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin are shiny weapons that should make gears click on offense pretty fast.
Laughter competed with hip-hop beats for dominance inside the Washington Redskins' locker room after practice Monday afternoon. A blackjack game broke out, as usual. A$AP Rocky's latest single blasted from speakers in the center of the room. Nose tackle Chris Baker danced because that's what he does every day.
The early-season excitement, the euphoria surrounding Robert Griffin III is gone. The Washington Redskins' fast start and unexpected promise has evaporated. Hope that a change was at hand in Mike Shanahan's third season at the helm has disappeared.
Since Mike Shanahan rolled into town in his chariot in 2010, he's been trying to turn the Washington Redskins into the best team in the NFC East, if not the best in the whole NFL. But the Redskins reminded us Sunday that they're a lot closer to being No. 32 than they are to being No. 1.
Lorenzo Alexander's life was simpler four years ago. He did not have a family of five. He did not own a pilates studio in Ashburn, and he did not have a strong foothold professionally as a co-captain of the Washington Redskins.
When a team plays like the Washington Redskins did Sunday at the Pittsburgh Steelers, the result is predictable.
Talent. The word gets thrown around in Washington Redskinsland almost as much as Robert Griffin III does (depending the defense's orneriness). "There's so much talent in this locker room," a player will say. Or: "This is the most talented team I've ever played on." And so on and so forth.
The Washington Redskins' defense knew exactly what to expect from the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense. No longer a run-it-down-your-throat team, the Steelers feature a heavy dose of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to a variety of weapons.
