Addressing A Redskins Need For Speed

The end of next week kicks off the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, on the same field that recently hosted Super Bowl XLVI.  I guess it’s true that the Midwest has all the fun.

The Combine is a time to measure every tangible element of a prospective players’ game: speed, strength, obstacle courses and hand size.  It’s a time of quick risers and tragic falls, as teams try to decide who will be the future faces of their franchise.

In anticipation of the festivities, NFL.com expert Mike Mayock posted his list of Combine attendees that he predicts will wow the stopwatches in the 40-yard dash.  Some of the names could be targets for a Redskins offense and defense looking to add speedy playmakers.

Here’s a recap of his top players to watch for: Read more »

[Editor’s Note: In honor of this post, I dredged up an AP Photo of Redskins great Sam Huff with his family, taken on April 10, 1964.  From left to right, his wife Mary, his son J.D., Sam, daughter Cathy, and son Sammy Lee.]

For most NFL players, this part of the offseason is a time for the R’s: rest, rehab, recuperation and relatives.

The regular season doesn’t afford players much time to spend with family, so opportunities like a long Presidents’ Day weekend allows players get away for family time.

Some Redskins players like cornerback Josh Wilson have just been enjoying everyday life with their spouses.  Wilson revealed on Twitter (@TheRealJoshWilson) that he accompanied his wife to her “no limits spin class,” and had some discomfort with the limitations:

Good thing Wilson isn’t training to be a cyclist.  Let’s see how the spin instructor handles man-to-man coverage in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, somewhere between Houston and New Orleans, rookie receiver Niles Paul is meeting the newest member of his family, “little nephew NP Jr.”  Paul also happens to be wearing an awesome Popeye the Sailor Man T-shirt: Read more »

Redskins Cheerleaders Hit The Airwaves

Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Susan and Tena made the rounds at DC’s Radio One studios yesterday afternoon to promote the upcoming Cheerleader classes and tryouts.

The pair appeared on Magic 102.3, 93.9 WKYS, and Praise 104.1, and talked a little bit about what it’s like to be a part of the NFL experience.  For those interested in potentially joining the Redskins Cheerleaders next season, classes run every Tuesday and Thursday from Feb. 28 through March 29.

For more information on the auditions, consult the Redskins Cheerleaders page on Redskins.com.

Radio is supposed to be a medium where appearance doesn’t matter, but that rule doesn’t really apply to the First Ladies of Washington Football.  Susan and Tena were dressed in their winter finest, with white jackets, shorts and boots.

Trust me, their classy apparel really sounded good on air.

Here is Susan talking to Redskins.com about her experience as a rookie Redskins Cheerleader in 2011: Read more »
