Following a 29-21 victory against the Carolina Panthers, the Redskins enter week 14 on a two-game winning streak. The story over the last two weeks continues to be the development of the younger players such as Dwayne Haskins Jr., Cole Holcomb, DaRon Payne, Fabian Moreau, Steven Sims Jr., Kelvin Harmon, Derrius Guice, Terry McLaurin, and a few others will be integral parts of the team’s future moving forward. Their usage during a game has begun to increase, and in the last two games, each of these players had a hand in the victories in some way. It is a testament to the makeup of the players themselves.

Regardless, the point is there is nothing wrong with the Redskins winning, enjoy the success of the younger players, or not. Both are entirely understandable positions.
Derrius Guice took a while to get here, but he has finally arrived.
Most times, injuries are not anyone’s fault; they happen. That was the case for Guice, who was drafted last year to take over the running back position. His career-best came spectacularly – running through defenders, showing vision that is arguably on the same tier as Adrian Peterson ‘s, and most importantly, one of the better stiff-arms you will see this season. Guice represents a lot to the fan base; he does not hide his emotions, he interacts with the fan base …read more
