You Could Hang Out With Stephen Bowen

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 31, 2012 – 10:52 am

Ask the entire Redskins roster who the funniest guy is on the team, and I guarantee you’ll hear one name way more than others:

Stephen Bowen.

He’s soft-spoken in interviews and quietly makes his way around the team’s facility throughout the day, but make no mistake: Bowen is definitely the class clown of the Redskins — and YOU have a chance to “hang out” with him.

The Redskins are hosting their fourth Google+ Hangout of the season on Friday at 2 p.m., and here’s how you can be picked to participate:

Polumbus A Father Again; Her Name?

Congrats are in order to Washington Redskins offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus and his wife, Elizabeth, on the birth of their second child Monday.

Despite rumors that the girl would be named “Sandy,” in honor of Hurricane Sandy that ravaged the East Coast early this week, Tyler and Elizabeth instead went with Lydia Sue Polumbus.

Say it with me: Aww.

Lydia joins big brother Noah, who I’m sure is hoping to eventually get the 6-foot-8 genes from his father’s side.

Polumbus used Twitter to update his followers about how mother and baby — and father — were doing:

Redskins Check In After Hurricane Sandy

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 30, 2012 – 3:38 pm

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan joked with reporters yesterday that he hoped he wouldn’t find the team’s brand new indoor training facility — known by many as “the bubble” — rolling along State Road 267 after being blown away during Hurricane Sandy.

Fortunately, that actually didn’t end up happening, as long snapper Nick Sundberg reported today:

Sundberg also tweeted out the above photo of the Redskins’ practice fields, and you can see the heavy rains that moved through the area the last couple days definitely left their mark. The team doesn’t really use its AstroTurf practice field much, and if the grass ends up being too soggy tomorrow for practice, it will likely move things indoors to begin preparations for the Carolina Panthers.

Several other Redskins players took to Twitter before, during and after Hurricane Sandy to report what they were seeing, thinking and experiencing:

#WASvsPIT: Fourth Quarter Conclusions

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 28, 2012 – 3:55 pm

The fourth quarter began for the Redskins with the same theme of the previous three: a dropped pass.

This time, quarterback Robert Griffin III found wide receiver Aldrick Robinson with a perfectly-placed pass in the end zone for what looked at first like a touchdown, but Robinson dropped the ball — the team’s third drop in the end zone of the game.

That drive ended when Griffin III was sacked by linebacker Larry Foote on 3rd down, setting up a 45-yard field goal by kicker Kai Forbath, which he nailed — making him 7-for-7 on the season — and cutting the Steelers’ lead to 27-12.

The rest of the game continued on a similar path, as the Redskins dropped to 3-5 on the season with a 27-12 loss to the Steelers (4-3) at Heinz Field.

#WASvsPIT: Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 28, 2012 – 3:13 pm

The second half of today’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers got off on the right foot for the Redskins.

Trailing 20-6, quarterback Robert Griffin III found tight end Niles Paul wide open for a 37-yard pass-and-catch — a career-long reception for Paul. Two runs later — one by Griffin III and the other by halfback Alfred Morris — and the Redskins had their second first down of the drive.

But that momentum was killed three plays later, as, on 3rd and 12, Griffin III’s screen pass to Joshua Morgan only went for two yards. Kicker Kai Forbath salvaged the drive with a 48-yard field goal — an impressive kick for a first-year player here at Heinz Field — to cut the Pittsburgh lead to 20-9 with 11:52 left in the third quarter.

#WASvsPIT: Halftime Summations

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 28, 2012 – 2:21 pm

(AP photo)

The second quarter today started off with the Redskins driving and into the Steelers’ red zone for the first time in the game.

After a dropped catch in the end zone by wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe — the team’s second dropped touchdown of the drive — quarterback Robert Griffin III tossed to running back Alfred Morris for a six-yard gain. On 3rd and 4 from the Pittsburgh 8-yard line, Griffin III found receiver Joshua Morgan for five yards and the first down.

Three plays later, the Redskins faced a 3rd and Goal from the 5-yard line. With the Terrible Towels waving Griffin III attempted to run it in himself, getting to the 2-yard line. This time, the Redskins attempted to go for it on 4th down, as the Steelers had done in the first quarter. Griffin III’s quick pass was caught by receiver Santana Moss for the touchdown — making the Redskins 7-for-7 on fourth down conversions this season. Moss, by the way, had two touchdown catches last Sunday against the New York Giants, and continues to be Griffin III’s go-to target.

But kicker Kai Forbath’s extra-point kick was blocked by defensive end Ziggy Hood, meaning the Redskins trailed 10-6 with 11:33 remaining in the first half. On the replay, Forbath’s kick looked low to begin with.
