Offense, defense and special teams.
If you’re strong at all three, you have a pretty darn good football team.
The Washington Redskins learned tonight that at least one representative from all three phases of their team were elected to the 2013 Pro Bowl.
The league announced that quarterback Robert Griffin III, left tackle Trent Williams and linebacker/special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander were named to the 2013 NFC Pro Bowl roster. Additionally, linebacker London Fletcher and running back Alfred Morris were named Pro Bowl alternates.

The world really wants to see the Redskins make the playoffs, and now there’s proof.
ESPN SportsNation is conducting a poll asking its viewers, “Which team are you rooting for in the Cowboys-Redskins game in Week 17 that will decide the NFC East title?”
As of my last check (see above), out of 190,014 votes, the Redskins have more than 138,700 votes — or 73 percent.
Only in Texas — where the Cowboys only hold a 55-percent to 45-percent lead — is Dallas the favored selection.
To participate in this poll, simply click here. There’s currently a bunch of different polls in which you can take part, so have at it.

If you’re in the DMV and you’re yet to open up the blinds, get ready for a surprise.
The area this morning was blanketed by snow and ice, leading to an interesting commute to Redskins Park.
The Redskins players — prepping for Sunday’s huge NFC East championship showdown with the Dallas Cowboys — were prepared to have a fun practice session in the snow today (until they learned practice was moved into the Indoor Training Facility), and were active in tweeting their photos and thoughts:

Alfred Morris has completely squashed any talks about “Shanahanigans.”
The term refers to head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan‘s use of multiple running backs compared to a single, premier back handling most of the team’s carries in recent seasons.
Instead, Morris has been the latter in 2012. He’s turned in the best rushing campaign ever by a Redskins rookie; and, with 104 yards Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, he’ll break Clinton Portis‘ Redskins single-season record for rushing yards in a season (1,516).
That performance — combined with his 10 touchdowns — has obviously made Morris one of the most popular fantasy players in the league.
For his efforts, Morris was recently voted as the NFL Network’s “NFL Fantasy Live Waiver Wire Pickup Of The Year,” beating out Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb and Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts III.
Morris made an appearance on this show this week to talk about the award (see below), but here’s a few snippets from his conversation:
