Well, Redskins fans — we did it.
Shortly after 7 p.m. tonight, the Washington Redskins Facebook page reached the 1-million fan mark.
This is a goal for which we’ve been striving for a while now, and we obviously couldn’t have done it without you.
So, to show our appreciation, here’s a video of some of your favorite Redskins players showing their gratitude:

By now, you’ve surely heard all about the heroics of Washington Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg, who played the entire second half of the Redskins’ 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints last Sunday with a broken left arm.
What many already knew about Sundberg prior to his 15 minutes of fame this week is that he’s a really cool guy who can talk about anything.
I ran into Sundberg Tuesday night at the Greene Turtle during the taping of “Redskins Late Night” (1:30 a.m. Sundays on NBC-4), and talked to him about a variety of topics about his injury.
What’s the most annoying part of the broken arm for Sundberg?

In continuing the tradition set forth by former Redskins blogger/current Redskins.com lead writer Brian Tinsman, I’ll be bringing you a roundup each week of where the Redskins fall in the various national media organizations’ power rankings.
This way, you don’t have five to six separate posts per week to sort through — you can get it all in one place.
I already spilled the beans about where the Redskins ranked in this week’s ProFootballTalk/NBC power rankings, simply because I thought you all would be pretty excited about the surge.
Anyway, here we go with the roundup:

It’s time to check out the results of the Redskins Blog polls from last Sunday’s 40-32 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
There was one aspect of these polls that were very predictable going in: if quarterback Robert Griffin III was available as a choice, he was going to win. Not only was it his NFL debut, but he cashed in by completing 19-of-26 passes for 320 yards, two touchdowns, and led his team to victory in a hostile environment.
That said, we still had to give others a chance — even though the results weren’t close.
But we’ll start with the first Saints game-related poll, which asked fans to pick which of the three Redskins running backs — Roy Helu Jr., Alfred Morris or Evan Royster — they would start against New Orleans:

Whether you like it or not, “Griffining” is gaining popularity, and the man himself who harmlessly struck the pose last Sunday spoke about the phenomenon Wednesday during his weekly press conference.
Now, if you’re a Redskins fan, you should already know what “Griffining” is. But if you need a refresher, click here.
Anyway, Griffin III, as usual, is taking “Griffining” in stride.
