Mike and John’s Tailgating Adventure

Posted by Chris Herting on January 31, 2013 – 1:52 am


Year after year Redskins fans show up in droves and provide one of the best tailgating atmospheres known to man. This season was no different.

Each week fans gathered their friends, fired up their grills and enjoyed the pregame festivities, turning the FedExField parking lots into a sea of burgundy and gold.

The scene was no different for Mike and John Stroll, two out-of-towners who partook in a marathon journey all season long to experience the ultimate tailgate.

Prior to the Redskins-Giants Monday Night game (a Redskins 17-16 victory), the brothers hit the FedExField lots looking for the perfect tailgate. And well, you all succeeded in showing them what Redskins Nation is all about: good friends, good food and good times!

Of course we already know that Redskins fans never disappoint when it comes to a good tailgate.

Anyway, be sure to check out the video which chronicles their visit in Washington beginning with a grueling workout from Pro Bowl LB Lorenzo Alexander and ending with a surprise visit from GM Bruce Allen along with some quality time with the Hogettes! Read more »

Posted by Stephen Czarda on January 31, 2013 – 1:48 am


On Tuesday January 15th, Redskins fullback Darrel Young spoke to students at the PHILLIPS School in Annandale, Virginia.

He touched on a variety of subjects during his time at PHILLIPS to include how to live a healthy, active lifestyle, his path to the NFL, and to never give up on your dreams.

A Quarter Century After Super Bowl XXII

Posted by Chris Herting on January 31, 2013 – 1:46 am


Twenty-five years ago today (January 31, 1988) the Redskins walloped the Denver Broncos 42-10 in Super Bowl XXII to claim their second of three Super Bowl titles under head coach Joe Gibbs.

The game was played at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego on a balmy (61 °F) California afternoon.

If you are lucky enough to have any recollection of the game, the Redskins got off to a slow start. On Denver’s first play from scrimmage, quarterback John Elway threw a 56 yard touchdown pass wide receiver Ricky Nattiel to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead. Denver added a field goal and the first quarter ended with the Broncos in the lead 10-0.

However, the second quarter turned out to be a completely different story.

For the sake of time we’ll give you the quick version. If you may, a rapid fire summary of what transpired next. Read more »

Redskins Have Found A Kicker

Posted by Chris Herting on January 30, 2013 – 11:28 am


Kickers and punters usually don’t receive the kind of recognition and accolades as the rest of the 53-man roster. Simply put, the nature of the position does not demand the same degree of physicality as other positions.

While receivers and running backs are called “the skill positions,” specialists are the ultimate skill players.

The tradeoff for physicality is a necessity for consistent excellence, while striving for perfection.

The position requires a reassurance and a mental toughness with the ability to rise above the pressure of 80,000 screaming fans with the game and/or season on the line. There is a sense of reliance that comes with the territory.

As the DMV slowly dethaws from the blistering cold weather this past week, forecasts predict warmer weather upon the horizon. While the NFL season come to a conclusion this weekend, thoughts are beginning to shift towards spring and summer plans.

While the NFL is no doubt the best league in the United States, as the season ends and the temperatures rise, spring brings one of the best times of  the year for sports fans.

The NFL Draft, MLB Opening Day, NCAA March Madness, the NBA playoffs, and the NHL Playoffs are among the best sporting spectacles of the season.

However, as the thermometer increases the grass isn’t the only green that can be seen. The Masters is internationally recognized for its green jacket given to the winner of the prestigious tournament.

The PGA Tour “chipped” into full force this past weekend and perked the interest of two Redskins players.

Find out what the players had to say here about their “driving”  desire of the game:

Young Knows Keys To Beating Flacco

As the Ravens arrive in New Orleans today for Super Bowl XLVII Redskins’ fullback Darrel Young probably wishes it were his team representing the NFC on Sunday instead of the San Francisco 49ers.

Beside the obvious reason that the Super Bowl is the pinnacle of the National Football League, Young has had success in his football career against Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco some may not be aware of.

Young played his college football as a linebacker at the University of Villanova. Flacco threw one pass in two seasons at the University of Pittsburgh before transferring to the University of Delaware. Both teams are FCS members of the Colonial Athletic Association.

Flacco and Young’s college careers overlapped, giving them two opportunities to faceoff against each other. Both were starters on opposite sides of the ball for both contests. Here’s a look back: Read more »

Redskins Hope NFL History Repeats Itself

Nine games into the 2012 season, the Redskins appeared dead in the water, sitting at 3-6 and the playoffs a near impossibility.

Entering the bye week, it looked like the team had little to play for, trailing the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants by three games in the division. As the temperatures began to drop in the DMV, Washington appeared destined for another chilly winter without playoff football.

Fast-forward seven game, and the Redskins had surged to their first division crown since 1999 in front of a title-hungry, sellout crowd at FedExField. The rest is history: the team’s first NFC East title and home playoff game in 13 years.

The remarkable run the team endured at the end of the regular-season was one of the greatest in history and will not be forgotten for quite some time. A division title, however, is now in the back of the players minds as they focus on fulfilling next year’s goal of a fourth Super Bowl in team history.

Redskins fans know that continued success isn’t a guarantee. It took 13 years to see the team they love play in a home playoff game. However, history shows that long droughts between division titles can lead to greater success in seasons that follow.

Find out how other teams that endured long division title droughts fared here:
