WWE Gives Title Belt To Redskins

Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll see a lot of similarities between the madness that goes on throughout an NFL game and the madness exhibited weekly in WWE rings.

So Carriker and Carroll — who co-host “4th & Pain,” a weekly wrestling/football radio show — decided to collide the two worlds, with the help of the WWE.

The duo on Wednesday presented Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon with the first-ever “4th & Pain Championship Belt Player of the Week,” which includes an actual, real-life WWE title belt that will rotate from locker to locker throughout the season.

And trust me, folks — this belt is the real deal. I got a chance to pick it up today, and this baby is heavy — err, I mean, I didn’t have trouble lifting it, but I could see how it could cause troubles for a much-weaker person.

Carroll said the WWE caught wind of “4th & Pain” and approached the show’s co-hosts about what it could do to promote the show and the team.

“We said we wanted to give away a little something-something to the player of the week, but we want to do it pro-wrestling style,” Carroll said. “It’s very cool. I mean, it’s not a sponsor deal at all. They’re doing this because they like the show; they believe in the show.”

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Chris “Swaggy” Baker doesn’t shy away from showing off his dance moves, at anytime really.

But when a live band was playing a version of Gary Glitter’s song “Rock And Roll” (also known as the “Hey!” song) prior to the Redskins’ game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, I’m sure Baker just couldn’t resist.

In fact, we got video evidence:

The Washington Redskins had seven representatives (at eight positions) in the first edition of ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s All-NFC East Team.

For those of you unfamiliar, the ESPN.com All-NFC East team is Graziano’s running list of the best players at each position in the division. This week’s list will be the only time that it is based on the performances of a single week (Week 1).

Which Redskins made the cut to start off the 2012 season? Here’s the list:

Fletcher Delivers On Saints Speech

Like team captains are supposed to do, London Fletcher took his band of linebacker brothers prior to Sunday’s season opener against the New Orleans Saints and told them their mission.

Using an “us against the world” mentality, Fletcher told his teammates that he was tired of hearing about how the Saints’ prolific, record-setting offense was going to torch the Redskins’ defense.

Nobody really gave the Redskins a chance in Sunday’s game — except those in the visiting locker room. And, in the end, the Redskins prevailed, defeating the Saints 40-32 in their own backyard and getting the 2012 season off on the right foot.

Here’s video of Fletcher’s passionate speech to the linebacker’s right before they took the field for Sunday’s game:

Look At This New Sports Illustrated Cover

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 12, 2012 – 8:36 am

If you’ve ever been inside the FedExField press box, you’ll notice the huge Redskins Sports Illustrated covers hanging on the back walls.

These covers are from the Redskins’ glory years of the 1980s and 90s, and bring a sense of nostalgia to the press box.

If things go to plan this season — and for seasons to come — it seems as if the Redskins have at least one brand new Sports Illustrated cover to hang up.

According to CSN Washington’s Rich Tandler’s Real Redskins blog, a certain Redskins rookie quarterback is on the cover of this week’s East Coast edition of Sports Illustrated — and we’ve got the cover right here:
