Phil Robertson, (Almost) Redskins’ Great

Posted by Brian Tinsman on June 28, 2013 – 4:41 pm

The football story of TV star Phil Robertson can’t exactly be qualified as “breaking news” or “Redskins news,” but in a parallel universe, there’s a chance it might have been the latter.

For anyone that enjoys the guilty pleasure of watching the Robertsons on A&E’s Duck Dynasty, you may be aware that family patriarch and Duck Commander found Phil Robertson was at one time a first-class collegiate quarterback.

In a story covered by ESPN, Sports Illustrated et al, Robertson kept future Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw on the bench at Louisiana Tech before ultimately forsaking his football talent and following his true love of duck hunting.

As history shows, Bradshaw won four Super Bowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers while Robertson invented the industry standard on duck calls and landed a top-notch reality TV show.

Once considered to have one of the strongest arms in college football, Robertson drew NFL interest even after leaving the Bulldogs early for the comfort of his duck blind.

According to his recollection, one of those interested teams was the Washington Redskins. Read more »

Candidates For First Deacon Jones Award

On June 3rd the National Football League lost one of the greatest players to ever step foot on the gridiron, defensive end David “Deacon” Jones.

Jones, who finished his illustrious career with the Washington Redskins, is best known for terrorizing opposing quarterbacks and coining the term “sack” during his 14-year career.

Long before 2009 Hall of Fame inductee and former Redskin Bruce Smith notched his record breaking 199th career sack against the New York Giants in 2003, Jones was literally changing the game and making sure that defensive players got their name in the papers as well.

To honor Jones’ career of being a quarterback’s worst nightmare, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the league will honor each season’s sack king with the Deacon Jones Award at the annual NFL Honors awards extravaganza.

Could a current Redskin bring home the inaugural award?

Darryl Tapp Repped Redskins At Youth

With two weeks since the conclusion of another successful minicamp and still a little less than four weeks until the start of training camp in Virginia’s capital, news can be hard to come by sometimes.

Sure, there have been season review lists such as NFL.com’s top 100 plays from 2012 (still no appearance from Robert Griffin III’s 76-yard touchdown run, but I just saw that the top-ten will be unveiled the week Of July 22nd so stay tuned) and countless fantasy football position breakdowns and previews, but everyone wants to know what the players are up to right now.

Well, with the blessing of social media, we have a chance to see what each Redskin is up to on a daily basis and I must say, what I found from Darryl Tapp’s Instagram account is a must see.

Check out what the linebacker had in store for this week’s version of Throwback Thursday below.

Kirk Cousins On Zone-Read, Year Two

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 28, 2013 – 10:39 am

(AP Image)

Earlier this week, as part of his media tour for his new book Game Changers: Faith, Football, and Finding Your Way, quarterback Kirk Cousins made a quick pit stop with the guys at the Dave Dameshek Football Program to discuss how he is preparing for his job in the coming months.

And no I’m not talking about getting his arm loose for all the book signings he’ll do.

Cousins talked about how he and the rest of the offense are formulating plans on how to win back-to-back division crowns for the first time since 1983-1984.

The undefeated starter in the NFL also gave a sneak peak at how the offense might look under fellow quarterback Robert Griffin III in year two.

Outside Linebacker Trio In Upper Echlon

The following is a Public Service Announcement for Redskins Nation.

After missing the majority of the 2012 season outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is back, full healthy and ready to scare NFL quarterbacks once again.

Isn’t that music to the ears?

After suffering a season-ending pectoral injury in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams last year, No. 98 is prepared to fight for a division crown on the field this go around (with this menacing facemask) instead of being the Burgundy and Gold’s number one sideline supporter.

While ‘Rak certainly still wishes that he could have added to his 29.5 career sacks during the team’s seven- game winning streak last year, he like the rest of us got to watch fellow bookend Ryan Kerrigan blossom into a Pro Bowler.

Now, the duo (known more affectionately Kerrakpo) along with free agent acquisition Darryl Tapp are consider a top-five outside linebacker unit.

Your Summer Forecast By Tristan Davis

One week from today all of Redskins Nation, Washingtonians and Americans alike will join together to kick back, eat some barbecue and enjoy annual Fourth of July fireworks shows that only the United States of America can execute.

Now as anyone that lives in the DMV can attest to, the weather around here is fickle—very fickle.

At current check, the forecast for America’s birthday is calling for mid 80’s and a 40 percent chance for thunderstorms.

For Washington Redskins running back Tristan Davis, he has an interesting take on the chances our Nation’s Capital will have a rainy holiday—and any other summer day around here for that matter.

Defense Line Braces For Newest NT

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 27, 2013 – 12:56 pm

Ron Brace

(AP Image)

With some time to breath before the start of training camp next month, we have the opportunity to go back and highlight some of the “under-the-radar” moves the team did since January—and trust me there have been a lot of moves if you think about it.

In February, the Redskins signed nose tackle Ron Brace. Brace, drafted in the second round (40th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft, had spent his entire four-year career with the New England Patriots.

The 6-3, 330 pound Brace (not sure how anyone could miss that) will join fellow nose tackles Barry Cofield ,Chris Neild, and Chris Baker to form a deadly quartette of stoppers  in the center of the Redskins defensive line.

While Brace may not be a household name in our Nation’s Capital (yet), he is a recurring nightmare for at least once running back—Denver’s Lance Ball.

Check out this video clip of Brace forcing the pigskin out of Ball’s hands in the second quarter of a 2011 regular season matchup between the AFC foes.

Schedule Odds Stacked Against Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 26, 2013 – 4:21 pm

Despite having drafted quarterback Robert Griffin III and entering year three of the Mike Shanahan era, no one was very kind to the Redskins last year in season previews.

Sure there was Pete Prisco predicting that the Burgundy and Gold would finish with their worst record in 18 years behind a 0-6 division record, but he wasn’t alone. The gents over in Bristol, Connecticut at the ESPN headquarters were even stinger with their forecast—a franchise low 2-14 record during the modern-day 16 game schedule.

Obviously those calculations never came to fruition as the Redskins went 10-6 (with a 5-1 division record thank you very much) and secured the first playoff game at FedExField in 13 years.

While I have yet to see predictions surface for 2013, I can tell you that Athlon Sports believes that the Redskins will at very least have one of the toughest roads to Super Bowl XLVIII.

A good problem to have.
