Redskins Insider: September 27, 2009 - October 3, 2009

A Win Seems Likely, Unless ...

I expect the Redskins (1-2) to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3) at FedEx Field. Of course, I also thought the Redskins would beat the Detroit Lions, and we all know how that turned out. To me, the worst thing about last week's 19-14 loss isn't the embarrassment of being...

Haynesworth Could Have Been a Buccaneer

During a conference call with reporters who cover the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth said the Buccaneers offered him more money than the Redskins in free agency.

Preparing to Face Josh Johnson

Second-year quarterback Josh Johnson was named the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' starter this week, so the Redskins don't have a lot of tape on him. Without a big "book" on Johnson, the Redskins faced an interesting situation this week as they prepared to play Tampa Bay on Sunday at FedEx Field....

Fletcher's Solution for Defense's Problems

These days, you hear a lot of different things in the Redskins' locker room. One player recently said the team has lacked an identity during its 1-2 start. Another basically said some of the younger guys simply don't "get it" about what's important when you make it to the NFL....
