The Redskins Cheerleader Beach Football Championship

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2011 – 5:05 pm

This is the final report from Jordan Beane’s trip to the Dominican Republic for the Redskins Cheerleader calendar shoot.

It’s a video, because — as previously mentioned — Beane’s primary gig is with the Redskins Broadcast Network. The video really has nothing to do with the calendar shoot beyond the fact that it’s shot on the same beach. But that’s enough introduction from me. Here’s Beane’s account of the Redskins Cheerleaders’ touch football game on the beach.

Brian Moorman On Being Annihilated By Sean Taylor: 'A Good Experience'

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2011 – 4:10 pm

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk had Bills punter Brian Moorman on his PFT Live podcast show thing today, mainly because Moorman is doing good deeds to help the folks in Joplin, Missouri. But the conversation turned — as I imagine conversations with Moorman often do — to the ENORMOUS hit that Redskins safety Sean Taylor put on Moorman on a fake punt in the 2007 Pro Bowl.

(You can watch that hit above, and I recommend it. It’s quite possibly the greatest thing ever to happen in a Pro Bowl in the game’s sixty year history.)

Seeing that hit, It would be easy to believe that Moorman has no recollection of it whatsoever, but it turns out that his memories of the play are pretty sharp — and pretty entertaining. First, though, here’s Moorman on the legacy of the hit:

That definitely has given me an extended fifteen seconds of fame, because I think that every year a rookie comes in and says, ‘Hey, you’re The Guy!’ It’s kind of a funny thing for me, and obviously you can still find it on YouTube, so people still see it. I get somebody, probably five or ten people a year that say something to me out in public or whatever. So I think that’s gonna stick with me a while.

That is what it is. It was a good experience and I’m just glad I got up ’cause it was the biggest shot I ever took in my football career.

Florio follows up by talking about what an enormous hit it was — “full postseason speed,” he says — and asks Moorman what it felt like to get drilled like that. Read more »

Sha'Reff Rashad On The Redskins And Being Ice Cream

Posted by Brian Tinsman on June 2, 2011 – 12:17 pm

When safety Sha’Reff Rashad signed to the practice squad — the same November day as wide receiver Taurus Johnson, who is also still on the roster — I linked to a Star-Ledger profile about what a good guy he is. Now Redskins.com intern Brian Tinsman writes about a YouTube interview that seems to indicate the same thing. It also indicates that he’s willing to answer bizarre questions, which is good to know for the future.

Sha’Reff Rashad isn’t a household name in Redskins Nation, at least not yet. He was signed to the team’s practice squad last year after spending 2009 with the Giants.

After entering the league as an undrafted free agent, Rashad finally saw game action in the last game of 2010 for the Redskins. He played sparingly and compiled no statistics, but it was a long journey just to get on an NFL field.

Max Strauss of ProInterviews.org sat down with Rashad to discuss his path to the NFL, and specifically about adjusting to the Redskins.

This Was Quite Enough Coaching For Terrell Davis, Thanks

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2011 – 11:25 am

Hey, remember in training camp when Terrell Davis was a coaching intern here? No, really, it happened — that’s him up in that picture, to the right of Michael Pittman.

Well, I hope you remember it, because apparently that all the pro coaching you’re going to see from the Super Bowl XXXII MVP. Davis took questions from fans for the Denver Post, and one of those questions addressed the possibility of him joining the new Broncos coaching staff. Davis was quick to shoot that idea down, but at least managed to compliment to work ethic of the current Redskins coaches in the process. Read more »

See What It Takes To Become A Redskins Cheerleader

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2011 – 10:01 am

I’ve written about the Redskins Cheerleader finals a few times now — here, here, here, and here, for example — and almost every time, I compare it to some kind of reality show. In fact, I used the reality show conceit as the framework for yet ANOTHER piece on the finals — for 2,000+ words. Part of this is because I have a severely limited repertoire of cultural references (and the finals are definitely NOT like a comic book), but it’s also because … well, it’s a lot like a reality show.

So much so, in fact, that the Redskins Broadcast Network has created Cheers And Tears — a six part reality show following the entire process of becoming a Redskins cheerleader, which will be airing all next week on Comcast SportsNet. I’ll have plenty more coverage of this over the next few days, but — for now — here’s a quick look at what to expect.

Anthony Armstrong Caddies For A Wax Tiger Woods

Posted by Matt Terl on June 2, 2011 – 8:57 am

Anthony Armstrong, never a dull guy, is finding new ways to amuse himself during the protracted NFL labor issues this offseason. Hot on the heels of the news that he’s coaching youth soccer, Armstrong seems to have taken up another hobby: going to the wax museum and posing with the statues. At least, that’s the conclusion I’m drawing from his current Twitter avatar:

Yep, that’s Real Anthony Armstrong reading the green for Wax Tiger Woods. Not sure what more there is to add to that.

(I had completely overlooked this, so hat tip to the Sports Junkies for talking about it this morning, even if they did call it “bad schtick”. Personally, I think it’s pleasantly entertaining schtick.) Read more »
