Construction Ongoing At Redskins Park

Posted by Brian Tinsman on May 29, 2013 – 5:51 pm

The big construction news has been centered around the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Va., but that isn’t the only hard-hat area in Redskins Nation.

The back end of the facilities at Redskins Park are in expansion mode as well, with the back balcony removed and plans to extend the ground level out to the road.

Construction has been going on for several weeks and is expected to be completed some time before the team returns from training camp in Richmond.

The primary emphasis of the construction is to overhaul the player facilities, which have changed only aesthetically from their opening in 1992. The plans call for a huge expansion of the team’s weight room and training room, allowing for more and better workout and rehab equipment.

The upgrades are also expected to include improved meeting rooms for the coaches to properly prepare the players for game day.

What does this mean for Washington Redskins fans? With training camp moved away from the facility for at least the next eight years, probably not much. But there will be some noticeable changes worth mentioning to the backdrop of all of your future Redskins news. Read more »

Cheerleader Tasha Writes From Costa Rica

Over the next week, the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders will be providing behind-the-scenes access and first-hand-accounts of their 2013 Calendar photo shoot in tropical Costa Rica.

For the first photo shoot diary entry, we check in with Tasha, who is a Redskins Cheerleader rookie this season after serving as an ambassador last year. She has a few pre-game jitters but says she is ready to make Redskins Nation proud:

I am beyond excited and just a tad bit nervous to be traveling to Costa Rica for my first calendar shoot as a rookie. I still can’t believe that I have been afforded the opportunity to be a Washington Redskins Cheerleader, but if I’m dreaming I definitely don’t want to wake up. Read more »

Theismann Believes NBA Star Can Be QB

Since quarterback Joe Theismann hung up his single bar helmet following the 1985 season he has taken to the broadcast booth as a commentator for various football games to include the Burgundy and Gold’s preseason slate.

Instead of running from robust defensive lineman and speedy linebackers, the former Notre Dame star now enjoys a life of breaking down plays of current signal callers in similar predicaments.

With an expansive history in the game that includes 77 career wins and a Super Bowl ring, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about football.

Could being a talent evaluator and agent for the best basketball player on earth be added to his lengthy resume soon?

Owens’ Greatness Extended Past Gridiron

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 29, 2013 – 10:48 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Over the next few weeks we will be looking back on some Redskins greats for their heroics on the field as well as off of it. Today, Redskins.com intern Chris DeLisi explores the amazing story of Brig Owens.

For anyone that watched the Redskins during the late 1960’s and 1970’s the name Brig Owens should ring a bell. Well before the days of “shutdown” being a commonly used football term for defensive backs who harassed aerial attacks, Owens led the team in interceptions on three different occasions and when paired with fellow safety Ken Houston in the latter stages of his career, teams didn’t dare take a stab at the twosome.

A graduate of the University of Cincinnati, Owens was drafted as a strong safety by the Dallas Cowboys in 1965. Immediately following his rookie season, though, he was traded to the Redskins; a move that he says was easily the best moment of his life.

Owens loved the Redskins, and was one of the best defensive backs to ever wear burgundy and gold, finishing with 36 interceptions in his career, second all-time in Redskins’ history and is currently a member of the prestigious 80 Greatest Redskins.

Towards the end of his playing career, though, he began weighing his options of possible careers to pursue and ultimately decided on law school.

Morris In Conversation As Best ’12 RB

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 28, 2013 – 3:46 pm

When the 2012 season kicked off last September all eyes were on a star-studded rookie class looking to translate their college success to the pros.

With Andrew Luck looking to fill the shoes of another Indianapolis quarterback legend, Robert Griffin III revolutionizing what signal caller can do behind center, and Trent Richardson looking to become the next Jim Brown for the Cleveland Browns, everyone wanted to see just how talented the top-three picks in the draft would play in their NFL debut campaigns.

Did anyone outside of our Nation’s Capital (and the Big Easy) flip to the Redskins-Saints game to see Alfred Morris?

Well they had no choice but to watch Morris cap off his amazing rookie season in Week 17 where he saved his best for last—200 yards, three touchdowns, a franchise record and a key to the Redskins bringing home their first division title since 1999 on Sunday Night Football.

Now entering the 2013 season the 173rd overall pick is being compared to the 3rd overall pick for the right to be called the best tailback of the 2012 class.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on May 28, 2013 – 2:52 pm

social_spotlight_banner1-111

Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight consisted of an inspirational quote from defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins, an update on the progress of quarterback Robert Griffin III (from Griffin III himself), offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus visits RGIII in Texas, and safety Reed Doughty goes fly fishing with his son.

Organized Team Activities (OTAs) started last week and Robert Griffin III was on the field practicing off to the side and gaining “mental reps”.  In fact, according to the rookie his wish for a separate space to toss the pigskin around with his fellow injured teammates was granted by head coach Mike Shanahan. A lot of positives came out of last week’s OTAs, you can check out a complete recap of practice notes here.

Following the practice sessions, players returned home to enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday weekend with friends and family but since then have returned to Redskins Park for Round Two of their three week OTA schedule, which is as follows:

  • Second Week: May 28-30
  • Third Week: June 3-6

But on wayward for this week’s spotlight which includes kicker Kai Forbath’s view of Redskins Park from high in the sky, undrafted free agent linebacker Will Compton giving credit where credit is due, wide receiver Pierre Garçon tweets he’s ready for game action, and cornerback Richard Crawford gives his thoughts on something we’ve all been guilty of at least once or twice in our lifespan.

Key Performers Against Philly In 2012

With a pleasant Memorial Day weekend behind us, it’s time for America to get back to the daily grind of a typical work week.

The Washington Redskins are among the masses who are heading back to work as they are back at the Park for another week of OTAs and with news that it is 100 days until the start of the 2013 regular season (104 for the Burgundy and Gold) the hype surrounding the Redskins Monday Night Football opener is starting to gain speed quicker than Robert Griffin III in the open field.

Before we preview the Redskins season opener against the 2012 last place Eagles, we want to look back at the lopsided season series that was against one of Washington’s biggest rivals last year.

While we all know the story of Griffin III’s perfect quarterback rating in the 155th meeting between the two squads, let’s take a look at four players who deserve recognition for helping the Redskins sweep the season series against the Eagles for the first time since 2008.
