Last week, the Redskins filled one of their coaching vacancies with the hiring of Keith Burns as Special Teams Coordinator. He is replacing the departed Danny Smith who took the same position with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Burns bring an ample amount of experience and success with him from his time with the Denver Broncos both on the field and with a headset. Last season as Assistant Special Teams Coach in Denver, he lead a unit that became a  booming sensation blocking punts and multiple return touchdowns.

He reunites with his coach of 11 seasons, Mike Shanahan, in hopes of improving the special teams unit in Washington. During his time as a player, he was the special teams captain for the team’s Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII victories.

Read up on how Denver’s special team’s units thrived during his tenure and how he will be a resourceful tool for the Redskins this upcoming season:

Morris, Lichtensteiger Make ‘All-Joe Team’

The 21st All-Joe Team was recently announced by USA Today and Redskins running back Alfred Morris and guard Kory Lichtensteiger were selected.

The All-Joe Team was originally comprised by USA Today Sports writer Larry Weisman in honor of Kansas City defensive lineman Joe Phillips after he helped teammates Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith combined to take down quarterbacks 29 times during the 1992 season.

While Thomas and Smith received the brunt of attention, Phillips was instrumental in paving the way to get his teammates to the ball.

The team is an annual presentation of some of the hardest working players in the league. Often, these players are deemed “over-achievers” and rarely get the same level of media attention that some of the top superstars in the league receive. The only parameter of inclusion to the All-Joe Team is that the player has yet to be selected to the Pro Bowl.

However, many All-Joe Team selections go on to be selected to the annual contest in the Rainbow State. Prime example: 2011 All-Joe and 2012 Pro Bowl special teamer Lorenzo Alexander.

Find out why Morris and Lichtensteiger were deserving of the honor here:

Combine Is Key For Redskins Scouts

Posted by Chris Herting on February 19, 2013 – 3:19 pm


Redskins Director of Player Personnel Scott Campbell is entering his 27th NFL season and his 13th with the Washington Redskins. Campbell originally joined the Redskins staff in 2001 as Director of College Scouting and in 2008 he was promoted to his current role as Director of Player Personnel.

As son of Marion Campbell, former head coach for the Atlanta Falcons and the defensive coordinator for the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles (1980), Scott’s NFL background is an extensive one to say the least, serving in numerous roles throughout his tenure in the league.

Fans sometimes look at the NFL season within the microscope of a five month season and yearly April draft. However, for Scott Campbell and the other team scouts, championships are won and/or lost in the time spent off of the gridiron. Read more »

Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight highlighted two birthdays, one of them belonging to QB Robert Griffin III who turned 23 on Tuesday, February 12. And although we like to take credit for all of the cutesy birthday wishes and cheesy photos, we weren’t the only ones on social media with cliché, confetti-filled birthday pics. Here are some of the others who wanted a piece of the birthday pie:
