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. With 35 days until the start of training camp I looked back at the magnificent career of Bill Dudley.

Last year the Washington Redskins advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2007 behind a high octane offense, an opportune defense and a special teams unit that did whatever task was presented to them.

Together the three units gelled over one common bond—refuse to quit no matter the odds.

Sure Robert Griffin III passed for 20 touchdowns, Alfred Morris set the franchise’s single season rushing record, and Kai Forbath nailed his first 17 attempts—but the trio couldn’t do what Hall of Famer Bill Dudley.

Dudley, like Sammy Baugh, did just about everything on the field during his nine-year career.

Going to an NFL game can be one of the most rewarding experiences. Whether it is taking your children to their first contest to teach them the basics of the game or meeting up with some coworkers away from work, it always provides lifetime memories.

Since 1997, the Washington Redskins and Redskins Nation alike have called FedExField home for 130 games to include Joe Gibb’s first back at the helm, Darrell Green capping off an incredible 20-year career, and the debut of Robert Griffin III.

As the burgundy and gold prepare to defend their NFC East crown in 2013, Bleacher Report’s Russell Baxter remembers his greatest FedExField battle.

Potential Obstacle To Consecutive Crowns

Last year the Washington Redskins won 10 games for the first time since 2005 en route to the NFC East crown.

Half of those wins came against division foes and if it weren’t for a late touchdown pass surrendered to the New York Giants in Week 7 they would have gone undefeated in the division.

With the season that was fully behind us now (training camp is only five weeks away) it’s time to look ahead and see if the Redskins can win back-to-back NFC East titles for the first time since 1983-1984.

From 1976 to 1985 the Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, their biggest rival of course, went back and forth at finishing on top of the division.

Some 30 years and one Week 17 do-or-die matchup later, it looks like the two franchises are going to rehash their war at the top of the East.

Morris Returns Jersey Favor To Campbell

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 20, 2013 – 12:54 pm

Last month Redskins second year running back Alfred Morris got the present of a lifetime that any NFL fan dreams of—an autographed jersey of one of the great gridiron legends of all time, Earl Campbell.

Campbell, like Morris, burst onto the scene his rookie year with 13 touchdowns helping the Houston Oilers achieve a 10-6 record.

Unsurprisingly, the FAU product was overtaken with delight over the signed No. 34 Oilers jersey.

“He would plow right over people. Nobody could tackle him. Man..this is awesome.”

The story, however, didn’t end there.

Morris returned the favor—with a signed No. 46 Redskins jersey.
