About this time last year, perplexed by all the negative posts from people who thought the Pirates had done too little in the offseason and would consequently regress in 2013, I wrote fan post...


Is there an individual award the Pirates WON’T win this season?

It's obviously way too early for the Pirates to think beyond the next game, let alone to the playoffs, let alone to the World Series. But I've already allowed myself to start thinking about the...

And then there’s this. Even in the midst of what columnist Joe Posnanski no doubt considers an overall favorable assessment of the Pirates’ miraculous 2013 season, he manages to...


Rating the Cubs as a potential trade partner

Bucs Dugout's sister site in Chicago, Bleed Cubbie Blue, has a post this morning discussing the likelihood of a trade deadline deal with the Pirates (among other teams). While I think the...


ESPN urges Bucs to package Taillon, Polanco, Sanchez and more for Stanton

Just in case you haven't seen it yet, ESPN's MLB page has a feature article today suggesting the Pirates should trade for Giancarlo Stanton. According to the author, David Schoenfield, a reasonable...

Will RGIII be What John Elway was for Shanahan?


Not surprisingly, his otherwise mediocre coaching record is a lot more impressive when he's got a Hall of Fame talent calling signals for him.

Who starts for the Redskins at Safety in Week 16?


It wouldn't be surprising to see rookies Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo both starting at safety for the Redskins


In hindsight, Chapman beaning Cutch was the turning point in the Pirates’ 2012 season

There was a lot of debate in this forum last year after the Reds’ Aroldis Chapman beaned Andrew McCutchen, and most of it centered on whether the Pirates should respond in kind. They didn’t,...

Memorial Day Classic: Sonny Jurgensen, 10 years


Though he started his career with the Eagles, no player is more identified with the Redskins after six decades as a player and announcer than the ‘Old Redhead.’

RGIII, turnover differential, Redskins


The Redskins were among the leaders in turnover differential during the 2012 season, but it had more to do with RGIII’s uncanny knack for avoiding interceptions than the defense generating takeaways

Skins Need a TWilliams Backup Plan: Eric Winston


For the first season in a long time, one player can make all the difference between contending for a Super Bowl and not qualifying for the playoffs, and the Redskins need to be prepared for that possibility.

Redskins Offensive Improvements: Logan Paulsen


He may not be flashy, but if Fred Davis and Jordan Reed can’t be the tandem the Redskins envision, rest assured Paulsen will plug away and take up the slack as best he can.

Redskins Offensive Improvements: Josh LeRibeus


The former SMU Mustang didn’t live up to his third-round draft status in 2012, but his versatility and youth could still make him a productive Redskin starter as soon as this season

What can Redskins Fans Expect from Roy Helu?


Was it only a year and a half ago the Nebraska product looked like a fixture in the Redskins’ backfield for years to come?

D.J. Swearinger for Redskins at #51?


A ferocious hitter with a non-stop motor, the former Gamecock would bring a swagger to the safety position the Redskins haven’t seen since Sean Taylor.

Redskins/Packers 2013 Preview


The reigning NFC North champs’ offense would be a handful for Redskins’ shoddy D. But if the Pack’s defense thinks Colin Kaepernick was unstoppable, wait’ll they get a load of the guy he was imitating.

Draft Profile: Michael Mauti, ILB, Penn State


With London Fletcher nearing retirement, Perry Riley a potential free agent and Keenan Robinson coming off an injury, the Penn State ILB could be a late-round insurance policy.

Draft Profile: Luke Marquardt, Tackle, Azusa Pac.


Big man from a little college would make an intriguing pick in the later rounds as a right tackle of the future.

Draft Profile: Demetrius McCray, CB


Corner isn’t quite the priority it was a week ago, but the Redskins still have long-term needs at the position and the former Mountaineer has the size and athleticism to contribute at corner or safety

Pat White Might Have More Value to Skins than Rex


Take it from someone who watched every college game he played, this guy is more than just camp fodder.
