With the 2011 season in the books and another 105 days to go before the 2012 NFL Draft, it’s officially time to hem and/or haw, self-congratulate success and self-loathe disappointment. Hey, it’s the offseason!
The best place to start for obligatory 20/20 hindsight is the 2011 NFL Draft, when the labor dispute was put on hold to focus on the future.
The Redskins entered the weekend with eight draft picks and a plethora of needs. Showing a steady hand of patience and precision, the Redskins navigated their draft boards picking up a lot of raw talent, roster depth and project picks. In the process, they added five extra picks and four extra players.
The draft class was everything that it needed to be at the time, and it worked out tremendously for an injury-ridden Redskins team. But it was not a “sexy” draft according to experts. Because the Redskins took so many players, they had a chance to find some gems; but because they took nine players after the third round, there was a chance few would pan out.

Some of your First Ladies of Football appeared on the ‘Fox & Friends’ program this morning to talk about the military tours that the Redskins Cheerleaders did overseas in 2011.
Cheerleaders Dawn, Toccara and Jessica were joined on the program by Alan Krutchkoff, President of Adopt A Soldier Platoon, US Air Force Col. Ralph Romein, and treasurer of Adopt A Soldier Platoon, Allan Virginia. All together in 2011, Redskins Cheerleaders did five tours with military members and personnel, four of them overseas.
“We were the first group in Iraq that actually visited all [militarized zones] in Iraq through one of our tours,” explained Cheerleader Dawn. “Y’know, we know it’s a celebration, but also holding your breath moment. I lost someone in Iraq–a close friend–and you want to say thank you. It’s the perfect time to say thank you to our military, it’s in person face to face.”
One of the things that was particularly interesting about the trio that was on the ‘Fox & Friends’ show, is that they were touring in Iraq on Dec. 15 when the US ended military operations in Iraq. This was a surprise to the Cheerleaders, who were then witness to a very historic moment. Read more »
