Wilson Describes Character, Football Style

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 9, 2012 – 5:00 pm

Redskins cornerback and DMV native Josh Wilson appeared at his second community function of the season, today’s “4th And Life” high school football forum at FedExField (alliteration intended).

Wilson had the opportunity to share his unique perspective on high school football, considering he came from the same playgrounds and weight rooms as many of these student athletes.  The former DeMatha product remembered the glory days of his team’s state championships, but also shared some far more humbling stories as well.

Wilson said he wasn’t always the polished professional that takes the field on Sundays.  Back when he played under Friday night lights, he learned how to be a respectful gentleman.

“Character is ‘the type of person that everyone sees you as.’ It’s not just who you believe you are, or who you want everybody to think you are,” he explained.  “You can sit here and say that you’re this type of player or that type of guy, but if nobody takes you seriously, then you aren’t who you say you are.  And if you’re the most talented person on the team, but I don’t trust you on the field, then that’s because you aren’t who you think you are.

“You’re not accountable, you don’t take care of the details.”

Wilson recalled two times in high school that he was benched for a lack of respect to the team, his peers and himself. Read more »

The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday afternoon the signing of outside linebacker Mario Addison, who takes the place of waived outside linebacker Markus White.

Addison (6-3, 257) was originally signed as a college free agent by the Chicago Bears on July 26, 2011. He was waived by Chicago on Nov. 21, 2011, before being claimed off waivers a day later by the Indianapolis Colts.

He appeared in three games with the Bears and three games with the Colts in 2011, finishing with six tackles (two solo). Addison appeared in the Colts’ first three games of the 2012 season and had two tackles.

Addison — a Troy product — is also the newest addition to the Redskins Beard Bunch.

For those of you who are unaware, the Redskins Beard Bunch is an elite group of Redskins players and staff members who sport distinguishing beards, and includes the following men:

Count On ‘Death, Taxes and Forbath’

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 9, 2012 – 3:51 pm

The Washington Redskins announced this afternoon that they have signed free-agent Kai Forbath, a standout kicker from UCLA, and released veteran kicker Billy Cundiff.

Forbath tweeted this Tuesday afternoon:

College football fans probably remember Forbath as the winner of the 2009 Lou Groza Award, which is given out annually to college football’s top kicker. He was also a semifinalist for the Groza Award in 2011, his senior season with the Bruins.

His college coach, Rick Neuheisel, once said of Forbath after he kicked a game-winner against Oregon State: “Death, taxes and Forbath. Those are the three things in life you can count on.’’

Those are pretty strong words.

Forbath — who will wear No. 2 with the Redskins — went undrafted in 2011 and was signed by the Dallas Cowboys before spending the season on injured reserve and being released. He made all five of his field goals with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2012 preseason — including a long of 55 — before he was released in favor of Connor Barth.

Here’s video (via BlairAngulo) of Forbath’s aforementioned game-winner against Oregon State, and his reaction to the media afterwards:

Kerrigan Responds To ‘C’Mon Man!’ Nod

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 9, 2012 – 12:04 am

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan on Monday night was the subject of ridicule on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown’s popular feature “C’Mon Man!”

ESPN anchor Chris “Boomer” Berman apparently took exception to Kerrigan’s decision to jump into the FedExField stands after scoring on a 28-yard interception return off Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

The act that is affectionately known as the “Landover Leap” in these parts was referred to as the “FedEx Flop” by Boomer on ESPN.

Kerrigan issued the following statement in response to his “C’Mon Man!” debut:
