While baseball has long been considered the American Pastime, football has made the full-fledged transformation into America’s Game.

As the game has grown in popularity, millions have flocked to get a glimpse of games from Thursdays through Mondays.

Need proof?

How about the Redskins-Cowboys Week 17 do-or-die game that drew record numbers from the Sunday Night Football slot, the league has a network dedicated exclusively to league content 24/7, 365, and one of the greatest video game franchises that has transitioned from generation to generation of video game consoles as evidence of the game’s rise.

That’s right folks, the timeless gaming classic named after one of the greatest football minds in history, Madden, has captured countless hours of gaming fun and even the occasional frustration from living rooms across the globe.

No vote would be complete in the month of March without a bracket, and with 25 years of players to choose from to be on the cover, there are 64 players that could receive the prestigious honor.

The 25th Anniversary Of Super Bowl XXII

It’s been 25 years since the Washington Redskins, put on an offensive clinic, and won Super Bowl XXII. Five possessions, 18 plays, 35 points and 356 yards, and it all happened in the second quarter. The Redskins turned a 10-0 first quarter deficit to John Elway and the Denver Broncos, into a 35-1o halftime lead.

It was because of Super Bowl MVP, Quarterback Doug Williams. There’s no doubt that the Redskins offense fed off of Williams precision. Williams completed 18-of-29 passes for 340 yards, with four touchdown passes. The decisive 42-10 victory on Jan. 31, 1988, was the Redskins’ second championship in five years.

Larry Michael spoke with all time great, Doug Williams, on Redskins Nation Tuesday, about an upcoming event, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Redskins victory in Super Bowl XXII.

Yesterday’s press conference with general manager Bruce Allen and head coach Mike Shanahan marked the first time that the Redskins have made extensive public commentary on the $36 million salary cap penalty levied against the team.

One of the more interesting facets of the discussion revolved around the value of the penalty. Sure, the Redskins are subject to a $36 million dollar reduction in spending, but what does that actually mean? Read more »

UPDATE: Redskins Mock Draft Tracker

Posted by Chris Herting on March 12, 2013 – 12:10 pm

The Redskins made a splash yesterday re-signing six of their pending free agents and, arguably, some of the team’s key core players to help build off of last year’s NFC East Championship. The team also announced the signing of veteran free agent offensive tackle Tony Pashos (former Cleveland Brown) in addition to announcing that they had released CB DeAngelo Hall.

According to coach Mike Shanahan, yesterday’s roster moves helped the team get back under the salary cap and in position to meet the league-mandated cap requirements prior to the start of free agency today at 4pm. But despite the moves, it doesn’t appear that the team will have enough wiggle room to be a major player in free agency.

It’s possible that front office has something up their sleeves but the most likely scenario is that the team will turn their attention to the draft to help fill certain needs.

Keep in mind that a lot can happen between now and April and, yet again, consensus among the mock drafts below seems to be that the Redskins will lean toward drafting secondary.

Thought remains that this year’s draft class is secondary-laden and that there should be some intriguing prospects at number fifty-one, including some that may peak your interest as draft weekend approaches. So let’s go ahead and take a look at our updated Mock Draft Tracker and a few players that some of the experts think the Redskins should pursue.
