And then there were five Redskins.

Does a team’s losing streak cause players to get fewer individual accolades, or do players under-perform and deserve fewer accolades?

Either way, only five Redskins were bestowed with All-NFC-East honors by ESPN.com’s Dan Graziano this week:

Fullback: Darrel Young, Redskins (Young)

Center: Will Montgomery, Redskins (Montgomery)

Inside linebacker: London Fletcher, Redskins; Sean Lee, Cowboys (Fletcher, Lee)

Kick returner: Brandon Banks, Redskins (Banks)

Punt returner: Brandon Banks, Redskins (Banks)

Young Gives Personal Thanks To Veterans

Posted by Christopher Mudd on November 9, 2011 – 6:39 pm

In honor of the upcoming Veteran’s Day celebrations,  Redskins fullback Darrel Young spent his Tuesady at the Westin Hotel at Tysons Corner for the “Salute Our Heroes” luncheon.”

Young joined former Redskin Rick “Doc” Walker at the event, which was hosted for military members and their families.

Events with veterans, or current military personnel, have special importance for Young, because his brother is in the military.

“I’m a little more sensitive to those guys because I know what they go through,” Young said. “Anytime people dedicate and devote their lives to this country I’m always willing to do stuff for them.”

While Young runs around on the football field for a living, his brother is always in the back of his mind.  Young is well aware that there are more important things than football. Read more »

So what did we learn about the Redskins this week?  According to most NFL prognosticators, estimators and haters: not much.

And the almighty NFL power rankings reflect this, by staying pretty much the same this week.

With each loss, the team has focused more and more heavily on the immediate future.  No one is making grandiose statements now, they’re just focused on getting the first win since October 2.

Gibbs Returns To The Gridiron, For Family

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 9, 2011 – 11:44 am

via Mark Sluder

All across the nation, youth football teams are coached by generous adults from all walks of life.  Some are former high school football stars, some are football amateurs.  Some are coaches looking to turn it into a career, and some are just concerned parents.

And some are three-time Super Bowl winning coaches that have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Tripp Mickle of the Sports Business Journal “Out of the Office” section, caught up with Redskins great Joe Gibbs, who is living his life after football with family…and football.

Three years ago, after re-retiring from the Redskins, Gibbs didn’t know whether he would have the itch to return to the sidelines for a third time.  Apparently, his son J.D., made the decision easy for him, by naming him coach of his grandson’s youth football team: Read more »

Kerrigan Falls In Contested Madden Game

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 9, 2011 – 11:04 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was a great night for football at the Reston, Va. Verizon store location, where Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was set to take on Ravens fullback Vontae Leach in a winner-takes-all game of Madden ’12.  Leach, his opponent, was playing remotely at the Timonium, Md. location.

The point of the exhibition was to display the capabilities of the Verizon 4G Wireless Network, which, for the most part, worked well.  More on that later.

As Kerrigan entered the store, he looked calm and confident.  When asked if he was going to win, he simply stated, “That’s the plan.”

After the game was set up, Kerrigan tried his hand at smack talking, which I get the impression is not his strong suit.  Or he couldn’t really let loose at a family event.  Either way, he pointed into the Web cam and said “You’re going down!” to Leach.

Leach won the coin toss and elected to receive.  The first play from scrimmage was a virtual Joe Flacco sack by none other than virtual Ryan Kerrigan.  On that same drive, virtual Kerrigan has a one-on-0ne tackle of Ravens virtual running back Ray Rice in the flats.  It was easy to see that this game was going to boil down to a defensive struggle.
