Senior Bowl Hall Of Fame Full Of Redskins

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 23, 2012 – 4:17 pm

As the Redskins coaching staff prepares to take the field with the South Team for the first Senior Bowl practices of the year, it inspired me to peruse the the Senior Bowl website for more interesting angles.


It turns out that 11-of-95 listed Senior Bowl Hall Of Fame members have at least moderate Redskins ties, with six of those being well-known legends in the Nation’s Capital.  Here’s the complete list, starting with the star power:

Practice Bubble Time Lapse Video

Late Friday afternoon, we announced right here on Redskins.com that the Redskins practice bubble was finally off the ground.  As of closing time at Redskins Park, she wasn’t quite off the ground.  As of sundown, she was still rising.  When the snow began, she was standing tall, and by morning the bubble had risen to a proud 96 feet.

The bubble now dominates the skyline in Loudoun County, and can be spotted from the Loudoun County Parkway and Rt. 7.  Once the blanket of fog lifts out of the DMV, we’ll see how far away it can really be seen.  Check out Redskins Nation’s Larry Michael with the Friday report and cool time lapse inflation:

There will be more to come on the specifics of the dimensions and features in the days and weeks to come, as they finish the inside and put down the playing surface.  For now, it’s a mammoth endeavor that’s finally reaching fruition.

Here’s a quick panoramic shot of the inside of the bubble.  The white noise you hear are the powerful, yet energy-efficient fans that keep the bubble inflated:

Qualifying NFL Championship Weekend

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 23, 2012 – 11:47 am

As always, there were some very interesting tidbits from yesterday’s AFC and NFC Championship action.  I encourage each of you to proceed with perspective.

For the glass-half empty Redskins fan, another weekend of football was just a reminder that their beloved Redskins are at home watching the playoffs.  Watching four teams with Redskins ties take the field was enough to induce nausea, and there was no consolation and nothing to take away from the games.

For the glass-half full Redskins fan, there was legitimate reason to believe in progress.  Each of the four teams that played yesterday have undergone major roster renovations in recent years, which includes drafting at key positions and/or finding quality free agents.  The Redskins have matched that trend under Shanahan, and will look to continue that process in the coming weeks and months.

Guess which group I’m in?

For a closer look at how this affects the Redskins, check it out below:
