Ten Questions the Redskins Special Teams needs to Answer this season | Fanspeak.com

A look at the 10 most pressing questions facing the Redskins special teams this training camp and during the regular season.

Redskins/NFC East Notes: RGIII's Learning | ESPN Redskins Blog

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay praised quarterback Robert Griffin III for how he handled the offseason - physically and mentally. "He did an excellent job above the neck," McVay said, "as far as absorbing the new system, some of the terminology. ... He's done an excellent job translating his knowledge in the meeting room onto the field, recognizing some of those looks. Some of the audible situations we'll give him the opportunity to call things at the line. He's shown he's fully capable of doing it and that's what gives him a great chance to have success this year."

Gibbs Redskins Name is Prideful | ESPN Redskins Blog

"I always loved the Redskins and never thought I'd have the chance to coach them. In the (16) years I coached them ... we never heard anybody say anything negative about the Redskins' name; it was always prideful, courageous. We have a song; we sing, ‘Hail to the Redskins.'"

The big question mark in training camp will be Bowen's health. The 30-year-old is attempting to return from the microfracture surgery that ended his 2013 season and caused him to miss OTAs and minicamp. He says he'll be ready for training camp next month. Assuming he's able to return-and that's no sure thing given his age and the tricky nature of microfracture surgery-he could be a solid rotational player. In addition to the concern about his knee, though, is the recent decline in his stats. After a career year in 2011 with 41 combined tackles and six sacks, he's averaged 22 tackles per season and has totaled a single sack.

Will the Redskins carry 2 kickers | CSN Washington

The Redskins have half of a pretty good kicker in Kai Forbath. He hit the first 17 field goal attempts of his NFL career in 2012. Last year he had some issues with an injury early on but he finished strong, hitting on his last 14 attempts of the season. But he struggled in kickoffs, ranking 31st in touchbacks and dead last in net kickoff average. Enter seventh-round pick Zach Hocker, who has demonstrated during OTAs that he can consistently pound the ball into the end zone. Will the Redskins carry both kickers on the roster, using Forbath for field goals and the rookie for kickoffs?
