Football, Family Focus During Bye Week

Whether a rookie or a 14-year veteran, the Bye Week is looked by all Redskins players at as a time to re-charge the batteries and stay mentally sharp and focused on their next game, which is Nov. 18 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles at FedExField.

The rookie example? Cornerback Richard Crawford, who will be heading home to Dallas to work out with his old defensive backs coach.

“I really don’t take days off during the season,” Crawford said Tuesday. “The only reason I’m really going back to Dallas is to get in some work with my old DBs coach to get some work in because we can’t be with our coaches. I’m going to do that probably every day, work out with him, and then come back here ready to play.”

While he’s in town, Crawford said he’s also looking forward to catching his alma mater, SMU, play Southern Miss — and he said he hopes he doesn’t get too caught up in the college atmosphere.

“We’ll see how it is,” Crawford said. “Hopefully I won’t get too involved, because I was kind of like a player-coach when I was there. So I’m going to try to stay away from all of that this time.”

Though this is Crawford’s first Bye Week as a professional, it’s certainly the opposite for Redskins middle linebacker London Fletcher.

Fletcher — a 14-year NFL veteran whose wife and kids live in Charlotte, N.C., during the season — said Tuesday he was very much looking forward to seeing his family.

‘All-NFC East Midseason Team’ Released

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 7, 2012 – 11:23 am

One week after a season-best eight Redskins appeared on ESPN.com NFC East Blogger Dan Graziano’s All-NFC East Team, the site has released its ‘All-NFC East Midseason Team.’

It’s essentially just the updated version of its weekly All-NFC East Team, considering Graziano selects his picks based on an entire season’s body of work — and not a week-by-week evaluation.

Anyway, we learned today on Graziano’s All-NFC East Midseason Team that six Redskins made the cut.

Here’s the Redskins representatives:

Sav Rocca’s Bye Week Not So ‘Interesting’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 7, 2012 – 10:35 am

Of all the guys currently on the Washington Redskins’ roster, punter Sav Rocca would probably enjoy a trip home during the Bye Week the most.

But he can’t, you see. Rocca’s got two strikes against him: first, he must stick around the team’s Ashburn, Va., headquarters to receive treatment for an injured knee; secondly, round trip, Rocca’s trip home would exceed 20,000 miles.

And that’s without connecting flights and layovers.

Rocca, a Reservoir, Australia, native, said the interesting part of his Bye Week won’t include a trip home down under.

“Well, it depends on if you call coming in here for treatment every day interesting,” Rocca said yesterday.

How You Voted: Redskins-Panthers

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 7, 2012 – 8:01 am

If you want to know how valuable wide receiver Joshua Morgan was to the Washington Redskins’ game plan last Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, take a closer look at the stat sheet.

Morgan was targeted 12 times by quarterback Robert Griffin III. The next closest was tight end Logan Paulsen, who was targeted eight times.

Morgan caught six of those passes for 46 yards and was voted by you, the Redskins fans, as the MVR(edskin) of the game, in which the Redskins lost to the Panthers 21-13 at FedExField.

Though Morgan’s final stat line isn’t very eye-catching, several of the receptions he did make were tucked away into the “very tough” to “amazing” category. He showed lots of grit going across the middle, focusing enough to catch the ball while knowing he was going to get smacked by multiple defenders immediately after.

Anyway, here’s the rest of the final results of last Sunday’s Most Valuable Redskin fan poll:

VIDEO: Griffin III On ‘The NFL Season’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 7, 2012 – 7:32 am

(AP photo)

“Like professional football, super heroes are a decidedly modern phenomenon. In the 21st Century, we see, in a game, a reflection of ourselves; and we see in characters conceived by the imagination the embodiments of who we might like to be — if only we could. And then, in this game, along comes a player offering glimpses of our fantasies; visions of the impossible.”

Well, that’s an awesome analogy to get your Bye Week started, huh?

Those three sentences are taken from NFL Films’ “The NFL Season: A Biography” and its recent profile on Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III, of course, has taken the league by storm through the first nine weeks of the 2012 season, but it’s the stories about Griffin III and how he operates that have really been intriguing.

“The NFL Season” takes an interesting look at how super heroes have played a role in Griffin III’s upbringing and how he goes about his business on the football field.

Griffin III’s locker at Redskins Park (which is re-created in the video below) is filled with not uncommon decorations like inspirational messages, but it also is filled with action figures of various super heroes that Griffin III adored growing up.

Here’s the video from “The NFL Season:”
