The Good, Bad, and Ugly Draft Choices of the Washington Redskins

21 Mar

Most members of Sibat Media live in the DMV area and year after year, the Washington Redskins constantly let us down. In the past ten years, the Redskins have had two winning seasons (10-6 in 2005 and 9-7 in 2007) and in both of those seasons we lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs. So, what is it that makes the Washington Redskins so terrible…their drafting.

This is a very obvious issue as a Washington Redskins fan. Daniel Synder, regardless if you like the man or not, does not know how to run a team.

NFL Week 11 Recap

24 Nov

Ok. So… what have we learned from an exciting week 11 in the NFL?
