Redskins Explain The Halftime Show

Posted by Matt Terl on September 17, 2010 – 3:23 pm

The announcement that D.C. legend (and lifelong Redskins fan) Chuck Brown would be performing at halftime of this Sunday’s game against the Texans was largely met with one of two responses. If you were familiar with Brown’s work as a pioneer in the city’s distinctive go-go music scene, it was a positive response. If you weren’t familiar with that work, the response was, simply, “Wait, who?”

I’m familiar enough with the music to fall into the former category, but not enough so to accurately explain Brown’s level of prominence (beyond “very”). For that, I turned to a few of the guys on the team — mainly players with ties to the D.C. area where go-go was born, but also longtime left tackle and current coaching intern Chris Samuels, who became a big fan. Sort of. Read more »

So Trent Williams Is Apparently Pretty Good

Posted by Matt Terl on September 17, 2010 – 11:07 am

As the reviews have come in on the Redskins following Sunday night’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, there’s been one thing that’s pretty much constant: praise for rookie left tackle Trent Williams.

His teammates were impressed, for example. Here’s Chris Cooley, fielding a question about Williams during his Monday appearance on 106.7’s The LaVar Arrington Show With Chad Dukes:

“Trent Williams is, bar none, the best athlete as an offensive lineman that I’ve seen since I’ve been in the league,” Cooley said. “The guy can move. It was funny: we were in Phoenix; none of us played, we just went out and ran, and then all the receivers ran routes with the quarterbacks. Trent Williams went out and ran routes with us. The dude can run routes. He’s probably as fast as me.”

(Don’t believe me? It’s in Podcast 3 here.)

That “probably as fast as me” sentiment was put to the test in Sunday’s game, as you can see in the video above.

LaRon Landry Returns To Hail!

Posted by Matt Terl on September 17, 2010 – 8:22 am

Dan Steinberg counted up LaRon Landry‘s in-game celebrations from Sunday night and concluded that he “strutted, posed, or exchanged obvious words with the tackled player” on just eight of them. We can say “just” eight because Landry was all over the field for the entire game, recording at least seventeen tackles (I’ve seen other counts put him at 18) and generally becoming the hard-hitting force that everyone’s always hoped he would. And, frankly, as long as the celebrations don’t draw a penalty, I’m all for them — it’s all very much an organic part of Landry’s personality.

“Once I’m in the game and my enthusiasm and adrenaline rushing, I just let it flow,” he told Steinberg. “I don’t know what I do, I don’t know my celebrations. I’m engulfed in the game.”

Which is a long and roundabout way of introducing this week’s Hail! comic strip, wherein writer/artist Ben Ceccarelli explores a possible downside to having that many occasions for on-field celebration.

As always, click this first panel or the Read More link to see the entire strip.
