Phil Robertson, (Almost) Redskins’ Great

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?

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

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.
