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?
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.
Right tackles generally aren't valued as highly as left tackles, largely because right tackles don't protect a right-handed quarterback's blind side. That creates an interesting dichotomy when it comes to drafting them.
Cedric Griffin's four-game drug suspension has created an opportunity for some of the Washington Redskins' unproven cornerbacks to contribute to a possible postseason push.
Entering this season, the Redskins' offensive line wasn't known for performing in beautiful harmony with precise choreography like "The Five Heartbeats."
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.

NHRA Pro Stock racer Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins, one of drag racing's most influential stars, has died. He was 81.
"It was making sure that I was working on all the different types of protections, working on my footwork on every type of play, just sharpening it up because there was clearly a lot of work to be done from the start," he said. "Proper footwork, hand placement, knowing where to go on every play. I feel like I've come a long way for that."
NHRA president Tom Compton says Jenkins played an integral role in the formation of Pro Stock.
