Atogwe Going True North Strong And Free

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 5:17 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Apparently “True North Strong and Free” the best-known nickname for Canada.  It’s at least the most polite name that I’ve heard.

If Canada is America’s northern neighbor, then Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe is the neighbor’s kid who spends more time at your house than his own.  It’s been months since Atogwe went home, and even longer since he played football in Canada.

“It’s been since high school,” he said.  “I’m excited to go back.”

Atogwe grew up in Windsor, Ontario, which is just outside of Detroit, Mich.  Toronto is just outside of Buffalo, N.Y., 225 miles away.

Or in Canada, that would be 364 kilometers.

Despite the haul, it’s a lot closer than Washington or anywhere else that the Redskins will play this year, and Atogwe has lots of family and friends making the trek. Read more »

Fletcher-Jackson Connection Runs Deep

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 3:42 pm

One matchup to look for in this Sunday’s matchup, will be Redskins linebacker London Fletcher against Bills running back Fred Jackson.  Not only are they the key to their respective units’ success, but they’re also old friends and Division III college-mates.

Via Rodney McKissic of The Buffalo News, Fletcher took Jackson under his wing during their mutual time in Buffalo:

Fletcher was a mentor to Jackson when he was signed to the Bills’ practice squad in 2006.

“When I got my first start the first guy I played against was London Fletcher. I’ve always had a great amount of respect for him being he’s a Division III player as well. He was one of the guys I used to talk to a lot when I first got here.” Read more »

Torain Credits Hightower For Pass-Blocks

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 2:41 pm

The trade for Tim Hightower this offseason brought a running back to Washington that was well-versed in pass-protection.  A running back that can perform in all three facets of the game offers the offense more possibilities while he’s in the game, something that has been missing since Clinton Portis in his prime.

But now that Hightower’s season has ended on injured reserve, his influence will carry on in his fellow stable-mates, especially Ryan Torain.

“Y’know, Tim was definitely a specialist in studying hard, and I tried to take a little bit from him,” Torain said.  “I’ve been putting in work and trying to be a student off the field, and that’s the way I’ve been approaching it this year.”

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by his coaches, who will be relying on him to pick up a lion’s share of the carries in Hightower’s absence. Read more »

Hail! Finds Some Farmyard Amusement

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 1:37 pm

Cut the whole team? Forfeit the rest of the games?  Hire replacement players?  Move the team to L.A.?

These were all suggestions made following last week’s loss, and this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic reminds us all to take a step back…deep breath…and remember that it’s only Week 8:

McIntosh Looks To ‘Thrill’ This Sunday

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 12:07 pm

AP Image

One of the driving forces behind the improved defense this year, has been the improved play of inside linebacker Rocky McIntosh.  McIntosh was a force at 4-3 linebacker, and needed a season under his belt to adjust to the 3-4.

This season, he has already produced a Redskins second-best 57 tackles, two for a loss, a sack, five quarterback pressures, and a pass defensed.

In his weekly “52 seconds with Rocky McIntosh” on School of the Legends, he went Halloween-themed for Buffalo.  He also said that he would put No. 52 as his fantasy player of the week, and the man to set the tone on Sunday: Read more »
