Redskins add long-snapper Dearth

The Redskins have signed long snapper James Dearth to compete with Nick Sundberg, a person familiar with the situation said Saturday. Dearth, who formerly played for the New York Jets, was among the long snappers the Redskins worked out last week because of their concern about Sundberg's poor snapping on...

With little time to prepare, Beck did what he could against Bills

Just calling plays, lining up in the correct formations and not turning over the ball in Friday's preseason opener against Buffalo were important feats for John Beck, the newest member of the Washington Redskins. Beck had all of 10 days to learn enough of a foreign scheme to orchestrate the...

Special teams produces mixed results

While rookie receiver Brandon Banks was the highlight of the night for the Redskins special teams unit, there were plenty of other areas to evaluate - including kick return and kick coverage and a stellar night from punter Josh Bidwell. While Banks impressed on punt returns, racking up 97 yards...

Fourth quarter: Redskins 42, Bills 17

The Bills showed some life in the fourth quarter, well after the Redskins had built an insurmountable lead.    The final quarter began with John Beck under center and the Redskins offense continued struggling.

The Redskins ran a spread offense the past two seasons under then-coach Jim Zorn, but it was not as complex as the West Coast scheme Mike and Kyle Shanahan have brought to Washington. And defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has scrapped the successful 4-3 the team used since 2004 in favor...
