Wide receivers in the NFL are known for being flashy and outspoken; gaudy at times, and downright unbelievable at others. The Redskins great production out of their wideouts, but don’t really have to deal with the flashy publicity.
Take Anthony Armstrong for example.
While some receivers would use the five days off as an opportunity to vacation to, I don’t know…Mexico, for example, Armstrong has good reason to stay put and soak up the sun in Loudoun County.
“No big plans man, no big plans–I’m just kickin’ it,” he told me on Tuesday. “I would love to go to Puerto Rico or the Bahamas, but I can’t do that–costs too dang much, and I’m kind of inexpensive with my money. So I’m gonna hang out in Virginia, and make my own Puerto Rico in Virginia.”
Sounds delightful. What exactly does that mean, Anthony?
“I’ll probably put umbrellas in all of my drinks–non-alcoholic, of course,” he said. Of course, of course. “I’ll probably get me some sunglasses, sit outside on my patio, and go that route.”
A flawless plan. But what if the weather is in the 50’s and 60’s? Not exactly sunbathing weather.
“Then I’ll sit with my window open, next to the patio,” he said, unfazed. “I’ll bring the patio furniture inside, and I’ll look outside, and I’ll cut the heater on so I can feel that warm breeze.”
And what does a football player watch on TV in his mid-Atlantic tropical paradise? Why, football, of course.
“I’m a big fan of the game, so I’ll watch the Eagles play and see what they can do against the Bills,” he said. “I’m gonna see how they play–you wanna stay up on your opponent. I wanna see what they’re gonna look like coming into the game, so it’s a little scouting.”
And those are Armstrong’s “No Big Plans,” plans.

For Week 5 of the regular season, ESPN’s NFC East blogger Dan Graziano compiled his all-division team.
All told, three Redskins had their named taken off the list (fullback Darrel Young, left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, kick returner Brandon Banks), but one remains on the list elsewhere (Banks). Two Redskins replaced their teammates at respective positions this week (outside linebacker Brian Orakpo and safety LaRon Landry), and one Redskins lineman managed to bump a division foe (center Will Montgomery).
That leaves the Redskins with a respectable six of the 27 awards, and generally credit where credit is due, based on the overall season picture.
Here are the Redskins recognized in this week’s addition:
Center: Will Montgomery, Redskins (David Baas)
Outside linebacker: DeMarcus Ware, Cowboys; Brian Orakpo, Redskins (Ware, Ryan Kerrigan)
Inside linebacker: Sean Lee, Cowboys; London Fletcher, Redskins (Lee, Fletcher)
Safety: Kenny Phillips, Giants; LaRon Landry, Redskins (Phillips, O.J. Atogwe)
Punter: Sav Rocca, Redskins (Rocca)
Punt returner: Brandon Banks, Redskins (Banks)
