Words Of Encouragement For Griffin III

Posted by Chris Herting on February 28, 2013 – 8:49 pm


After a seven game win streak propelled the team to a division title and a home playoff game, Redskins fans jumped on board for the ride realizing that this year’s team was clicking on all cylinders and prepared for greatness.

However, following the team’s playoff loss against Seattle, and then after hearing the news of Robert Griffin III’s injury, there were many broken hearts throughout the DMV. It’s safe to say that despite a phenomenal season which witnessed a worst to first turnaround and number four playoff seed, Redskins fans alike were inconsolable after the aforementioned series of events.

But then, a miracle in the making happened last week. The statement heard around the world from Dr. James Andrews saying that Griffin III’s recovery is ‘way ahead of schedule’.  Just hearing that statement from Dr. Andrews last week seemed to calm a few of those nerves. Yet, even with that statement, the full recovery of number ten looms in the distance and with that comes an aspect of uncertainty that makes every Redskins fan a little bit anxious.

That, however, did not stop one of the more optimistic young Redskins fans from sending the quarterback her well-wishes last month.

Should Aldrick Robinson Be on DWTS?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on February 28, 2013 – 10:51 am

Aldrick Robinson

Sunday night, the Oscars took center stage as the entertainment community gathered to honor some of the best entertainment performances on the big screen this past year.

During a commercial break, a different form of grandeur was being advertised for this spring. Dancing!

That’s right, Dancing with the Stars is returning this March and Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones will take to the dance floor after catching America’s attention with several eye popping dance numbers at the Super Bowl.

While Jones has created the reputation for strutting his stuff in end zone across the league, we believe that the Redskins-own Aldrick Robinson could challenge Jones’s spot as the best dancer.

Find out why we make a case for Robinson after his epic shimmy  in the confines of Cowboys Stadium on Thanksgiving Day:

Mat Mendenhall: The One That Got Away

Posted by Christopher Mudd on February 26, 2013 – 5:54 pm

Mendenhall 3513_001 (1)

Pictured above (left to right): wide receiver Art Monk, general manager Bobby Beathard, head coach Jack Pardee, and defensive end Mat Mendenhall.

The Washington Redskins 1980 NFL Draft class landed them eight players in total. Six of those players did not make the final roster in the first year. One was a wide receiver would go on to win three Super Bowls as a Redskin, Art Monk.

And one player turned out to be sort of a mystery.

Mat Mendenhall, a defensive end from Bringham Young University, became a Washington Redskin in the second round of the 1980 NFL draft.

At 6′ 6′ ‘ and 253 pounds the senior from BYU was a physical specimen coming out of college. He came from athletic family. His father Paul played defensive end at BYU from 1953-1954. His younger brother, Bronco Mendenhall played defensive back at Snow College from 1984-1985 before transferring to Orgeon State for his final two years.

Bronco Mendenhall got into coaching after his career ended, and in 2005 took over as the head coach BYU, a position he currently still holds.

Given the football crazed family that Mat Mendenhall grew up in, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he ended up playing football. But what was a surprise to many was the fact that Mendenhall lived to see his NFL dreams fulfilled.

During the summer leading into his senior season at BYU, Mendenhall started to experience a pain in his stomach but did not think it was anything serious. When the pain remained two months later he had it checked out. Read more »

What Do RG3 And Honey Badger Share?

Posted by Chris Herting on February 26, 2013 – 5:40 pm


Besides awesome nicknames.

NFL Draft guru Mike Mayock says that CB Tyrann Mathieu, or the “Honey Badger,” is a Combine ‘wildcard’ and no one really knows the NFL future of the 5′ 9″ 186 pound cornerback.

But what do Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and Mathieu have in common?

Well, they both were 2011 Heisman Trophy finalists. The obvious difference is that Griffin III went on to win the 2011 Heisman and Mathieu did not (hold your applause, please).

From the Heisman ceremony, their lives went in two starkly different directions. Griffin III went on to become a Combine sensation, Draft day hero, savior of a franchise and face of the NFL.

In that same span, Mathieu has been dismissed from LSU, arrested on drug charges, put through rehab, and is now fighting for his future in football.

The two that once had greatness in common may seem like an odd couple, but according to the almighty Twitter, the two have remained in contact over the last year and change, as evidenced by a recent Honey Badger tweet: Read more »

Burgundy and Gold Struts The Red Carpet

Posted by Stephen Czarda on February 25, 2013 – 2:48 pm


On Sunday night, eyes were glued to Hollywood as the 85th annual Oscar awards grasped the spotlight for many across the globe.

The Oscars recognize some of the best cinematic performances from the past year and winners receive an ever so sweet,  golden man statuette. It isn’t quite a Lombardi, but I hear it’s important.

Behind the glitz and glamour of the pageantry,  however, a very different golden object shined the brightest: A pair of burgundy and gold socks made famous by the starting quarterback for your Washington Redskins, No. 10 Robert Griffin III!

Combine Hangout On Redskins Offseason

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 25, 2013 – 7:35 am


On Saturday afternoon, yours truly joined forces with CSN Washington’s Tarik El-Bashir and Bleacher Report’s Will Carroll for the first ever Redskins’ Combine Google+ Hangout.

Carroll hosted the 25-minute debate, asking the two writers fan questions collected on Facebook and Twitter.

Friday’s news that Dr. James Andrews has Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III “way ahead of schedule” brought speculation on whether or not he will be ready for Week 1.

The draft debate centered around the top safety prospects, but also included the possibility of a slot receiver, offensive lineman and could the Redskins draft the Honey Badger?

Check out the full debate, below, and share your own thoughts in the comment section:

A Saturday Snapshot From The Combine

Posted by Chris Herting on February 24, 2013 – 10:35 am


The Offensive Line and Tight Ends took the field today to show off their speed and agility. Although we didn’t expect to see a whole lot of speed burners today, there were a few players who impressed scouts and who possibly saw their stocks rise. For us, it was also fun to watch to say the least.

Here’s a look at the top five tight end 40-yard dash times from Saturday (via nfl.com):

  1. Player                                  School                   Height   Weight 40 time
  2. Chris Gragg                         Arkansas                 6-3            244         4.50
  3. Matt Furstenburg            Maryland                6-3            242         4.62
  4. Jake Stoneburner            Ohio State               6-3            252         4.65
  5. Tyler Eifert                         Notre Dame           6-5            250         4.68
  6. Vance McDonald             Rice                           6-4            267         4.69

First Time At The Combine

Posted by Chris Herting on February 22, 2013 – 11:46 pm

lucas-oil-stadiumThere’s one word that can describe the city of Indianapolis in February: Cold. Maybe a better word to use is frigid.

Nonetheless, our plane touched down earlier today in Indy, fresh off of an ice storm that impacted much of the Midwest Thursday night into Friday morning. But despite the bitter cold temperatures outside, we ventured over to Lucas Oil Stadium to catch the 2013 NFL Combine.


The five block trek through the city streets was worth the energy and excitement palpitating through the hundreds of media that were gathered together upon our arrival.

Today, kickers and punters took the field to show off their talents and abilities to NFL scouts representing all 32 teams. But as exciting as coffin corner punts are, we naturally turned our attention to the running backs and wide receivers who reported to the stadium today.

For the first time, these former college stars experienced a taste of what an NFL interview room feels like. The vibe inside was electric. The media were firing questions. Coaches, scouts and GMs were deep in analysis. And the athletes were prepared.
