The Washington Redskins broke camp this year with a 53 man roster that had 18 new players that they either signed or drafted that weren't with the team in 2011 (either on the 53 man roster or practice squad).Of those new players, many were thought to play significant if not starting roles on this team. Yet with the exception of a few key players, the Washington Redskins haven't gotten positive early returns from these new additions, and haven't come close to seeing these guys meet their expectations.

"I took a liking to the Broncos and the talented running backs they had," Morris said. "And I really liked Clinton Portis because he had done such a good job for them, so when they traded him for [cornerback] Champ Bailey, I just followed him to Washington."

Kerrigan issued the following statement in response to his "C’Mon Man!" debut: "I regret that the Redskins fans had to witness myself in their beloved burgundy and gold on ESPN Monday Night Countdown’s weekly feature "C’Mon Man!"

Redskins' Kirk Cousins eager to fix mistakes if given another chance - Washington Times
"As a quarterback, you have to take the good with the bad, but I would just call them two critical errors," Cousins said Monday. "Besides those two plays, beyond that, it was good football, but those two critical errors are what quarterbacks get killed on. You’ve got to avoid those.

Redskins - Falcons Film Review: OFFENSE - Washington Times
On his first carry, an 11-yard gain on a toss left, he set up WR Joshua Morgan’s downfield block of S Thomas DeCoud by getting as close to WR Pierre Garcon’s back as possible before cutting upfield. DeCoud overran the cutback a bit, which positioned Morgan to block him. (Garcon was engaged with CB Dunta Robinson on the perimeter.)

RG3 Report: Falcons review |
Griffin had his least impact on a game. Ninety one yards passing and seven rushing in nearly three full quarters isn’t much of a help. It was a rather blah game for him.

The Vikings, 4-1 record aside, are a team Redskins fans would probably feel pretty good about their chances against, especially considering Sunday’s game is in Maryland and not Minnesota. But home field hasn’t provided much of an advantage lately: The Redskins are 0-2 this season, 2-8 since the start of 2011, and 4-14 since the beginning of 2010, when Mike Shanahan took over. Those last two figures are each worst in the NFL.
