Alfred Morris’ ‘Bentley’ Getting Tune-Up

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 25, 2013 – 7:12 pm

Morris Car

Earlier today, running back Alfred Morris took the podium in front of the media for the first time in months in what was supposed to be a football centric update about his progress entering his second year in the National Football League.

Instead, under the bright lights of the brand new Bon Secours press conference room, Morris was one upped by ‘Bentley’.

Few cars from the early 1990’s remain on the roads these days as they are rapidly being replaced by those with fancy amenities such as automatic parking and satellite radio, but Morris’ beloved 1991 Mazda is still going strong.

With some help from the guys at Mazda while he’s away on “vacation”, ‘Bentley’ is getting a tune-up that will hopefully allow her to see her 40th birthday.

Niles Paul’s Eccentric Sock Game

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 25, 2013 – 6:37 pm

Quarterback Robert Griffin III is widely considered the sock “king” of, perhaps, the entire sporting university as he is known to own countless pairs of socks ranging from your typical, everyday all blacks to some unorthodox pairs that would make traditional sock connoisseurs cower.

The young signal caller might have some competition for best sock game on the team though. For anyone who’s followed Niles Paul’s career since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, you know that he has one of the more colorful personalities.

It couldn’t have been more evident than today, when he sported some patriotic red, white and blue socks with his burgundy and gold practice gear.

I saved the best for last on this first day of training camp—quarterbacks working on their time and connections with the wide receiver core.

Oh and if you look closely you’ll see this fella by the name of Robert Griffin III out there with everyone else.

Here’s how he and the rest of the quarterbacks did on their first day back at it with the receivers.

We just showed you some of the tight ends’ involvement in blocking drills, but they have broken off into some pass-catching drills.

Besides, what’s better than working on a five-yard out route that will come into play in the redzone later this season?

Let’s take a look at how things went.

Last season, running back Alfred Morris ran for a franchise-high 1,613 yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground.

Truly phenomenal numbers when you consider where he was on the depth chart this time last year.

Morris has promised on numerous occasions during the offseason that he will become Alfred 2.0 this season.

He said that he worked on his pass catching skills over the last few months. Here’s a look at how he and the rest of the running backs/fullbacks looked on swing pass drills.

Offensive Line

Luckily, the Richmond weather is mildly cool for an end of July day as the temps have hovered in the low 80’s with a good share of cloud cover.

Just because it isn’t a scorcher out there, doesn’t mean the players needeth skip their pre-practice stretching session.

Anyway, here’s video of the offensive lineman working on their blocking technique.

Hunger For Fourth Lombardi Trophy

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 25, 2013 – 3:17 pm

Super Bowl trophies

Before this morning’s practice session, I stumbled across one fan that is very vocal about his Redskins passion.

He said he’s been a lifelong Washington Redskins enthusiast and couldn’t be more thrilled about the team being in Richmond.

As we struck up a conversation, it became obvious that the he has that motivational gene that can instantly get your blood pumping and heart beating.

So, for the rest of Redskins Nation to see, here’s his take on a coach-like motivational speech for the team this season. Just an editor’s note for those of you at work—you’ll want to put some headphones on and make sure to turn the volume down. His Redskins pride will make up for it.

TV Crushes Radio-Print In Media Bowl II

Posted by Brian Tinsman on July 25, 2013 – 3:03 pm

IMG_5286

Following up last year’s inaugural Redskins Media Bowl inside the indoor practice facility at Redskins Park, the intramural football field at the University of Richmond had the winning bid to host Media Bowl II.

Much like this year’s Super Bowl, it was held outside in the elements for the first time. But unlike the Big Apple, the concern in Richmond was the extreme heat on the less-than-ideally-conditioned athletes that cover your Washington Redskins.

There were a fair number of familiar faces in the crowd, with most of the regular beat reporters making it down in time for the festivities. But thanks to the Richmond location, the X-factor in this year’s competition was the influx of Richmond media to the rosters.

And boy did they ever make an impact. Read more »
