Anthony Armstrong, Comic Ketchup Artist

I firmly believe that everyone has a marketable talent in life, with some being more useful and lucrative than others.

For example, Redskins receiver Anthony Armstrong has the ability run sub-4.4 times and haul in acrobatic passes at full speed.  That’s a marketable talent that has served him well.

Earlier today, he proved that he could also make ketchup artwork, at the Johnny Rockets “Bring On Spring” Celebration.  Armstrong is what you might call “a dual threat” (via @DCJOHNNYROCKETS): Read more »

Stallworth’s Impact Bigger Than Numbers

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 22, 2012 – 2:56 pm

Reports surfaced two days ago that free agent receiver Donte’ Stallworth had agreed to terms with his former team, the New England Patriots, to return for the 2012 season.  Stallworth spent the 2011 season with the Redskins, his sixth team in as many seasons.

Stallworth was a serviceable receiver with the Redskins, making several spectacular catches, including a touchdown in the game against Dallas.  He had his best game of the year against the Patriots, burning his former teammates for 96 yards through the air.

But Stallworth’s finest hour in Washington was not on the field, and can’t be seen in the highlight reels.  His lasting impact on this franchise will be his influence on the players that constitute the youth movement in Washington.

When Stallworth came to Washington in August, he promised to provide the fabled ‘veteran leadership’ that many claim but few can provide.  His locker was positioned near the door, and players would chat with him on their way in and out of the locker room.

His most-profound impact was likely on rookie receivers Niles Paul and Leonard Hankerson, as well as fellow Bay Area-native DeJon Gomes.  Whether it was showing these players how to practice on the field, or how to act off of it, each of these three rookies blossomed into solid contributors for the team in 2011.

As a well-known free agent receiver, I knew Donte’ The Player before he joined the team.  But there were a few moments during the season when I realized what a professional he truly was. Read more »

Watch Stanford’s Pro Day Live At 2 P.M.

Yesterday, we witnessed Robert Griffin III solidify his top of the draft status with a commanding Pro Day at Baylor University.  Today, we get the chance to make fair and unfair comparisons to other top prospect Andrew Luck at the Stanford Pro Day.

I can’t wait.

Redskins fans should be equally intrigued by today’s workout, because there are no guarantees that the Colts are stuck on Luck at No. 1.  Hypothetically, if the Colts were to select RG3 at No. 1, then Luck would be the best available quarterback prospect left in the draft.

If the Colts passed on both quarterbacks, then the Redskins would have to choose which one they like better.  That’s why the Redskins top brass is reportedly in Palo Alto, Calif. this afternoon, covering their bases.

And hey, if the Colts and Redskins both pass on quarterbacks, then the Vikings get to decide.  But hey, let’s be serious… Read more »

Griffin Talks Redskins After Baylor Pro Day

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 22, 2012 – 11:26 am

[Editor’s Disclaimer: Please remember that the Redskins do not have a player selected for April’s Draft, they merely hold the second overall pick.  Even if there isn’t much secrecy left in this process, there is still formality, and the only team that can have any player is the Colts with the first overall pick. Anything after that is still a possibility.  We will continue to respect the draft process, in the best interests of the team and the player.]

Yesterday, Robert Griffin III looked and acted the part of an NFL quarterback at Baylor’s Pro Day in Waco, Texas.  He completed 73 passes–all but a handful–of which only two were uncatchable.

He had rhythm and timing, and he oozed confidence and charisma.  He was exactly what every player should be at his Pro Day, and ESPN got three hours of must-see programming out of it.

Probably Griffin’s most-striking feature was the fact that he was having fun out there.  With his future, draft slot, and millions of the dollars on the line, he was loose with his teammates and particularly enjoyed the music being piped in on the PA system.

“Just in case you were wondering, the music was scripted,” Griffin said after his day was finished.  “I don’t think you’ll hear ‘Thriller’ at any other Pro Day.”

“We wanted it to not be so uptight, like the Combine can be,” he continued.  “That’s not a knock on the Combine, but we just wanted it to be loose, having guys smiling, having fun.  So when I was throwing, it was my playlist.”

At least he has good taste in music.

“I mean, it had to be edited a little bit, ’cause I’m an R&B guy myself, but we put some rap on there for some of the guys.  They’d be mad if Usher started coming on and playing.”

Yeah! These are his Confessions.

It also ended up being an infomercial on the Redskins, who had many prominent personnel executives in attendance.  General manager Bruce Allen was seen laughing and conversing with Baylor head coach Art Briles, while head coach Mike Shanahan shared several secret handshakes with RG3 (via CSN Washington): Read more »
