Joe Lavender’s Extraordinary 1976 Debut

[With 20 days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at the career of ball-hawking cornerback Joe Lavender. Lavender’s six-year stint with the Washington Redskins produced 29 interceptions, to include a career-high eight in 1976.]

In the weeks leading up to the Washington Redskins’ home opener on September 9th against the Philadelphia Eagles, keep a close eye on position battles in the secondary as this offseason significantly bulked up the defensive backfield.

With the return of three-time Pro Bowler DeAngelo Hall, the signing of four-year pro E.J. Biggers, and three rookies who love to intercept opposing quarterbacks in town, there’s a good chance the Burgundy and Gold will top their 21 interceptions in 2012.

Regardless of who starts, if David Amerson, Phillip Thomas or Bacarri Rambo can replicate the success of Joe Lavender in his first season in our Nation’s Capital, the Redskins will have nabbed another big play, ball-hawking defensive back capable of keeping quarterbacks up well past lights out before gameday.

With beach season fully underway, I’m sure most of you have considered techniques (possibly from the Internet) on getting fit and toned.

Sure you might have cut out those pesky carbs and decided chocolate cake isn’t for you right now, but when it comes down to it your diet may still be missing one key ingredient—fruit.

As a safe warning, please don’t tell Ryan Kerrigan you forgot to buy bananas at the grocery store again.

With 20 days until the start of the team’s first training camp away from Redskins Park in years, the Washington Redskins are entering 2013 as the kings of the NFC East for the first time since the 2000 season.

Despite the fact that the Redskins won their last seven games of the 2012 season to include five over division rivals and one over the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, some considered the division title a fluke!

Was it because the Redskins bucked a trend of sorts in the modern era of the NFL by relying on their potent ground game behind rookies Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III?

As ESPN’s Dan Graziano points out, though, regardless of the shift to aerial assaults being the primary focus for NFL offenses in 2013, the Redskins have built a rushing attack that is unparalleled—and that includes five Super Bowl winning squads.

With the calendar reading July 5th and firecrackers being swept away from neighborhood corners, it’s time to get back to football— more importantly, the Washington Redskins.

Last year, the Redskins were one of the most underrated teams in the league as most previews predicated that another year tacked onto the team’s playoff drought was more certain than hot weather in the heart of summer.

Speaking of underrated, the 2012 NFC East crown would have never landed in our Nation’s Capital if it weren’t for two of the five most undervalued players in franchise history.

Let’s take a look at which stars made the “cut”.
