The Southpaw Chronicles: Brandon Banks

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 2:19 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After Brandon Banks revealed to the world that he was a lefty with a gadget touchdown pass against the New England Patriots, it piqued my interest in the left-handers on the team.

It turns out that lefties comprise 15 percent of the population, but are a brilliant class of people.  There are many famous lefties, including four of the last six presidents, Joan of Arc, Alexander the Great, and Bart Simpson.

With the help of Redskins.com’s Jessica Monaldo and receiver Anthony Armstrong, I identified the southpaws on the team, and sought to find out what makes them so brilliant.

I began my search with Banks, the man who inspired my mission.

Banks’s world-class speed is well documented, and vision allows him to find creases in the coverage, and accelerate upfield.  Although rarely used, he also has the type of game-changing speed on offense that forces defenses to respect all that he can do.

But according to a Yahoo! Sports contribution by Rebecca Bardelli, Banks also has some of the best hair in the NFL. Read more »

Fox: A Win Builds Resumes, Spoils Eagles

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 12:46 pm

AP Image

In his weekly Redskins preview for School of the Legends, former Redskins safety Vernon Fox outlines what the Redskins still have to play for this Sunday.  While the most immediate prospects are personal pride, the two other outcomes are more important:

1. Beat a division opponent.  Believe it or not, the Eagles are actually 4-1 against NFC East opponents, including a win over the Redskins in Washington.  Beat them now, ensure that they finish with a losing record (7-9), and avenge the Week 6 loss.

2. Build for next year.  The evaluation process in football is ongoing, but it begins in earnest after the season ends.  Whether it’s evaluating needs in free agency or the draft, there are areas that the team will look to improve.  A favorable last impression will help the players stay in Washington or find a job elsewhere.  Like it or not, Sunday is the last time that this version of the Redskins will ever take the field.

Check out his full analysis, with a shout-out to London Fletcher, below: Read more »

The Very Last Practice Of The 2011 Season

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 11:35 am

The final day of Redskins practice has arrived for the 2011 season.  It’s a routine that began in training camp at the end of July, and has lasted five months to the end of December.

There were days of 100-degree temperatures, and days when it was in the 30’s.  There were many days when it rained (sometimes creating lakefront property) and other days when onlookers got sunburn.  There were days when thousands of fans packed the sidelines, and many many more when they did not.

On this particular youth-infused team, there were opportunities (and potentially careers) that were launched on the back fields, both through injury and excellence.  All together, there were six players that rose from the practice squad to the active roster this season, meaning that six players proved their muster exclusively in practice.

Here are a few of the Redskins players’ thoughts on the last day of school: Read more »

Alma Mater Bowl Battle Continues Tonight

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 29, 2011 – 5:00 pm

It must be college football bowl season in the Redskins locker room, as intra-team smack talk has risen to a new level.  Last night saw the resolution to the Holiday Bowl between Lorenzo Alexander’s Golden Bears and Brian Orakpo’s Longhorns.

Tonight’s matchup between Graham Gano’s Seminoles and Eric Olsen’s Fighting Irish in the Champs Sports Bowl has also yielded some wardrobe wagers: Read more »

Alexander Pays Dues For His Alma Mater

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 29, 2011 – 4:38 pm

Special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander is a native of Berkley, Calif. and a proud former California Golden Bear.  Only one thing could ever make him wear the colors of another team, and his name is Brian Orakpo.

The story behind the wardrobe dysfunction stems from last night’s game Holiday Bowl game between Alexander’s Bears and Orakpo’s Longhorns.  Orakpo–who has a penchant for making T-shirt bets–wagered a T-shirt appearance and media interview with Alexander, who accepted.

What transpired was a 21-10 Longhorns victory, and a humbling walk into the locker room for the One Man Gang.  He explains: Read more »

Robinson Earns Coaches’ Trust, Promotion

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 29, 2011 – 2:57 pm

When the Redskins selected receiver Aldrick Robinson in the sixth round (178th overall), they knew that they had raw talent on their hands.

Robinson hailed from Southern Methodist University and was indoctrinated into the Run-n-Shoot offense, which traditionally doesn’t translate smoothly to the pros.  But Robinson possessed game-changing speed, running a 4.35 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine in April.

Rolling the dice on the speedster, Robinson got his first NFL opportunity in the second half of the first preseason game against Pittsburgh.  Back deep to return a punt, Robinson literally let opportunity slip through his hands–twice.  He muffed two consecutive punts, and that was his last appearance on the field.

“I was just too anxious to play I think,” he said after the game.  “I was running before I had the ball, looking downfield to see who I gotta make miss, before I even caught the ball. Basically I was trying to establish myself as a playmaker before I could even catch the punt.”

Robinson surmised at the time that his coaches had lost all trust in him, and that he would need to seek every opportunity to regain that trust.  At the end of training camp, he was stashed on the practice squad, left to find what few opportunities he could after everyone else. Read more »

Alexander Given ‘Media Good Guy Award’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 29, 2011 – 12:22 pm

Via @granthpaulsen

Each year, it is a tradition for the media and beat reporters to award one player in the Redskins locker room with the annual “Media Good Guy Award.”

The award is given to the player that best helps the media do their job of covering the team, even in (and especially in) times of losing and disappointment.  While there was very little locker room drama this year, losing made it difficult to face reporters.

The 2011 award could have gone to a number of players that make up the core leadership of the Redskins, but the recipient was the most-deserving of them all.  Presenting the award on behalf of the media, was long-time beat reporter John Keim of the Washington Examiner: Read more »
