Cheerleader Helping To End Breast Cancer

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 5, 2012 – 5:20 pm

Society has a nasty habit of assuming that people with a pretty face don’t have to work hard, and therefore don’t have much to offer outside of their shallow appearance.

Redskins Cheerleader Talmesha is out to blow that theory out of the water, as she has two bachelor’s degrees (Mathematics and Chemical Engineering), and is pursuing her Ph.D in Cellular and Molecular Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

She recently sat down with ScienceCheerleader.com–and yes, there is such a site–to talk about how her path towards saving the world runs through the sidelines at FedExField: Read more »

The Fish Story Behind Samuels’s Wedding

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 5, 2012 – 4:30 pm

Thanks to our friends over at @BallHogsRadio, we have photographic evidence of the beautiful weekend wedding between Redskins great Chris Samuels and his fiancee Monique over the weekend in DC.

Samuels is one of the classiest guys to ever suit up in the Burgundy and Gold, and we congratulate him for marrying his best friend and soulmate.

One of the best finds of the wedding festivities was the engagement video, and story about how the couple fell in love.  Throw out any skeptical notions of shallow, superficial attraction between these two.

Their love was kindled over an afternoon of fish bait and hooks in Virginia Beach (courtesy of Thomas Bowen Films): Read more »

Alexander Using Teammate’s Joke For Abs

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 5, 2012 – 1:25 pm

Lorenzo Alexander is special breed of athlete.  Not only has he proven that he is capable of playing football at its highest level, but he has also embraced position and responsibility adjustments in each of his seven years in the NFL.

As a senior in college, he was a 300-pound defensive tackle.  Through hard work and sheer determination, he’s transitioned to a 265-pound linebacker, and has used innovative workout regimens like Pilates to ensure his longevity and success.

So it came as no surprise to me, that when I asked him what his New Year’s resolution would be in mid-December, he immediately responded that he would get six-pack abs.

As a man who had been the biggest kid in school his whole life, this was probably the first time in a long time (if ever) that he was toned enough to have defined abs.  But with the help of his personal Pilates studio, I was a believer.

Count Alexander’s teammate, Adam Carriker, as a joking non-believer.

After talking to Alexander in his corner of the locker room, I walked halfway down the row to Carriker’s cubby, and asked him his thoughts on a resolution.  Here’s the audio of his response, with a reaction from Alexander in the background: Read more »

Davis Earns The Uncommon Redskins’ Tag

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 5, 2012 – 11:19 am

On Friday, it was announced that the Redskins had placed the franchise tag on soon-to-be free agent Fred Davis.  The contract numbers have yet to be calculated, but it boils down to an opportunity for the team to keep a star-quality player in a situation that protects them against off-the-field indiscretions.

With the way he performed in 12 games last season, the Redskins know what kind of value he provides to the offense.  After Cooley went down early in the season, Davis brought stability to the tight end position, putting up career highs in starts (12), receptions (59) and yards (796). He also grabbed three touchdowns.

He was leading the team in each of those categories before he was suspended in Week 13 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, ending his season.

Had Davis finished the season on his current pace, he would been only the sixth tight end in NFL history to have at least 78 receptions, 1,060 yards and a 13.0 yards-per-catch average.

This deal makes sense for both sides, as the Redskins like the player that Davis can be, and he has an opportunity to rebuild his value and reputation.  Essentially, a win-win for both sides.

And it’s a maneuver that hasn’t been executed very often for the Redskins franchise.  Since the franchise tag’s introduction to the collective bargaining agreement in 1993, the Redskins have used the tag on two other players, one of them twice. Read more »
