Griffin III Rookie Of The Month — Again

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 29, 2012 – 10:58 am

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III today was named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Month.

Randall Liu, the NFL’s Director of NFC Communications, tweeted the news a little earlier this morning:

Bradford, by the way, was named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year that season.

In only three games in November, Griffin III completed 57-of-82 passes (69.1 percent) for 726 yards with eight touchdowns and a passer rating of 124.3. He also ran 29 times for 166 yards this month.

In his last two games, both against divisional opponents, Griffin III completed 33-of-42 passes (78.6 percent) for 504 yards with eight touchdowns. His passer rating of 146.3 in the past two weeks – now adjusted to include a recent scoring change that altered a Griffin III first-quarter pass to Pierre Garçon in Week 12 at Dallas to a seven-yard run – is the highest two-week rating by a rookie with at least 40 attempts in league history, according to Redskins Public Relations.

As we have been constantly pointing out here on the Redskins Blog, Griffin III’s second NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month is just the latest in a barrel full of awards for the Redskins quarterback so far this season, and include:

Welcome Back Linebacker Bryan Kehl

The Redskins today welcomed back a familiar face, as they signed linebacker Bryan Kehl to their 53-man roster.

Kehl, 28, is in his sixth year in the league, and played in three games with the Kansas City Chiefs this season. He played the previous two regular seasons with the St. Louis Rams after beginning his career with the New York Giants.

In a corresponding move, the Redskins waived outside linebacker Mario Addison from their active roster. Addison, who signed with the team Oct. 9, plauyed in five games with Washington.

Kehl — who is wearing his familiar No. 53 with Washington — originally signed with the Redskins in April and had a strong showing in training camp and the preseason before he was released amidst a crowded group of linebackers during final cuts.

Kehl’s best preseason game in burgundy and gold was his final one, in the Redskins’ 30-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

On Nov. 27, 2007, Redskin superstar safety Sean Taylor died a day after being shot in a break-in at his home in Miami.

The passing of one of the NFL’s best players marked the biggest D.C. sports tragedy since Maryland basketball star Len Bias died of cocaine intoxication in 1986 and the biggest Redskin tragedy since Vince Lombardi’s death in 1970.

Robinson Claims ‘NFL AM’ Dancing Award

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 28, 2012 – 12:24 pm

Washington Redskins wide receiver Aldrick Robinson has earned a few awards in his football career — including being named first-team All-Conference USA while at SMU — but he has a new title to add to his accolades: award-winning dancer.

Robinson this morning was named the winner of the weekly “Dancing With The Starters” contest by the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” crew. Robinson made his moves (see below) after his 68-yard touchdown last Thursday in the Redskins’ 38-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

‘NFL AM’ tweeted about the award this morning:

Robinson, who is in his second year with the Redskins, has seen a recent surge in production. He caught a 49-yard touchdown in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles — a 31-6 Washington victory — before catching his 68-yarder last Thursday against Dallas.

For the season, Robinson has 11 catches for 237 yards and three touchdowns. He also had a touchdown grab Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

Here’s Robinson’s award-winning dance from Thursday’s game, presented over and over for your viewing pleasure:

VIDEO: Robert Griffin III On ‘NFL AM’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 28, 2012 – 12:00 pm

If Robert Griffin III had a vote for Offensive Rookie of the Year, he’d pick a member of the Washington Redskins.

No, he wouldn’t choose himself. He’d go with running back Alfred Morris.

Griffin III joined the NFL Network’s “NFL AM” early this morning and talked about that — and a variety of other subjects. About picking Morris for Rookie of the Year:

“My vote would go to Alfred Morris, because I wouldn’t vote for myself,” Griffin III said. “I think that’s extremely conceited and I’m not that person, so I’d vote for Alfred Morris. He’s my running back, he’s had a very quiet, but very great season for a running back and I’m proud to have him on this team.”

Griffin III also talked about being compared to Indianapolis Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck, of course, was selected No. 1 overall in April’s NFL Draft; Griffin III was picked second.

“Going into college, I was compared to Terrelle Pryor a lot, and now coming into the pros, it’s going to be me and Andrew Luck,” Griffin III said. “And like I tell everybody, I don’t ever root against quarterbacks and I want him to have a great career as well. If they are going to continue to compare us, hopefully we are the best comparison of all time.”

Griffin III also talked about the Redskins’ playoff chances, his style, and several other topics. Here’s the video:

Our Thoughts With Jack Pardee, Family

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 28, 2012 – 11:14 am

Our thoughts are certainly with Jack Pardee — the former Washington Redskins head coach and one of the cornerstones of the Redskins’ “Over The Hill Gang” — who has been diagnosed with gall bladder cancer and has six to nine months to live, his family says.

Despite the grim diagnosis, Pardee’s daughter Anne reports Jack remains in good spirits. That’s great to hear.

Pardee, a standout linebacker at Texas A&M where he played under Paul “Bear” Bryant, was part of the revitalization of the Redskins’ defense in the early 1970s. As part of the “Over The Hill Gang,” Pardee played the last two seasons of his career with the Redskins in 1971 and 1972. In 1971, he intercepted five passes — returning one for a touchdown — and was named All-Pro.

Pardee was head coach of the Redskins from 1978-1980, when he compiled a 24-24 record. In 1979, the Redskins came within one game of making the playoffs.

Under his watch, Pardee also made a few critical decisions that would wind up paying off big for the Redskins in the years to come:
