A Great Way To Waste Time This Weekend

Posted by Matt Terl on January 29, 2010 – 5:03 pm

I’m sure you have all sorts of exciting plans this weekend, plenty of wonderful and awesome things to do. But the only football you’re likely to see if the Pro Bowl, and that’s going to leave you with some football-watching hours to fill.

Fortunately, the NFL Network has started making content available on Hulu, and the Redskins page alone can help waste over ten hours. What you do with the other 38 weekend hours is totally up to you. Read more »

Washington Capitals At FedExField

Posted by Matt Terl on January 29, 2010 – 3:45 pm

Way back in October, back before the Redskins season had officially gone south and long before the Capitals got onto the impressive winning streak they’re currently riding, a few of the hockey stars came out to FedExField for the Redskins game against the Buccaneers.

I wrote at the time about Alex Ovechkin kicking field goals pre-game (including a video of one successful attempt), Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bog talked to Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom about the Redskins, Tanner Cooley gave Green and Backstrom a camera so they could interview Redskins players, and that seemed to cover just about everything that could be said about this titanic team-up of D.C. sports royalty.

And maybe it did cover everything that could be said, but while I was digging through folders from this season’s games for unrelated reasons, I came across a whole batch of photos from the Caps/Redskins pregame that I’d never seen before. Since the Redskins beat the Bucs — a Florida team — that day, and since the Caps are playing the Panthers — a Florida team — tonight, it seemed like an auspicious time to share them.

As always, click the images to enlarge. Read more »

Redskins Sign A Long Snapper

Posted by Matt Terl on January 29, 2010 – 1:53 pm

Another futures signing for the Redskins today: Nick Sundberg, a long snapper who finished out his 2009 rookie season on the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens.

Sundberg was the long-snapper for the Cal Bears in college, holding down the position for 52 straight games, and he takes the job very, very seriously.

“Nine out of 10 isn’t good enough,” he told the Daily Cal back in 2007.

And — also according to that article — he’s got a set of drills that I’m going to have to see to believe. Check this out:

Friday, January 29: Another Honor For London Fletcher

Posted by Matt Terl on January 29, 2010 – 9:46 am

ESPN’s Matt Mosley released his All NFC East team yesterday afternoon, and …well, the Redskins didn’t fare all that well. When you’re 4-12, I suppose you shouldn’t expect to have a whole lot of players honored in these things, but seeing it in black and white is pretty stark.

The two guys who did get honored were Andre Carter and London Fletcher, which isn’t really a huge surprise — one of them is going to the Pro Bowl, and I was pushing hard to get both of them there. The most obvious snub is the Redskins’ other Pro Bowler, Brian Orakpo. Here’s Mosley’s reasoning on all three: Read more »
