Strong WOW Contingent For “Takeover”

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 24, 2013 – 10:07 pm


During Saturday’s victory over the Buffalo Bills, you might have spotted a collection of rabid, female Washington Redskins fans across the stadium, most notably on the field and along the party decks.

It wasn’t just any group of women—it was the Women of Washington Takeover presented by Toyota.

WOW is the official women’s fan club of the Washington Redskins and gives millions the opportunity to be joined together, not only as female fans of a historic franchise, but to give them a forum to stay connected and improve their overall well-being.

While they have participated in chalk talks with high ranking team personnel like head coach Mike Shanahan and were treated to an exclusive full-body, Ninja Workout hosted by renowned personal trainer Ary Nunez, there’s nothing quite like attending a game with the largest women’s club in the National Football League.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

After extending their preseason record to 3-0, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan stepped to the podium at FedExField to chat with the media about his team’s effort during the 30-7 victory.

From start to finish, Shanahan’s squad completely dominated the Bills and seemed in full seven-game winning streak mode, complete with another rockin’ crowd. The Bills started the game with the ball, but after Brandon Jenkins recorded his first sack at the NFL level, the offense took control of the game and marched down the field for a Pierre Garcon touchdown. They followed it up with Kai Forbath field goal and that’s all that was needed to landed in the dub column once again.

Obviously I could talk all night about how the game went considering my adrenaline pumping strong right about now, but lets hear what head coach Mike Shanahan had to say courtesy of the Redskins’ Twitter account (@Redskins).

Who Was Today’s MVR(edskin)?

With a few minutes to fully digest the Redskins’ 30-7 victory over the Bills and rewind your DVRs to see how each Redskin performed this evening, Redskins.com is asking you  which player is most deserving of being bestowed with MVP honors for Week 3 of the preseason.

Despite having the speed of C.J. Spiller and Stevie Johnson among others, the Redskins defense stonewalled the Bills potent attack and made it seem as if FedExField was made of quick sand opposed to grass each of the 49 times the Bills snapped the ball.

Seriously, just look at these lopsided numbers.

First downs

–Redskins 27, Bills 8

Third down efficiency

–Redskins 7-17 (41 percent), Bills 2-13 (15 percent)

Time of Possession

–Redskins 38:52, Bills 21:08

Total Net Yards

–Redskins 452, Bills 155

Anyway, this post isn’t about team domination but rather on which Redskins stole the show tonight.  Here are your choices:

Fourth Quarter Conclusions: WAS-BUF

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 24, 2013 – 7:02 pm

Even without their top two quarterbacks, the Washington Redskins have done nothing short of dominating the Buffalo Bills this afternoon. While the scoreboard reads 23-7 entering the final period, it doesn’t tell the whole story. The Bills offense has barely mustered any sort of momentum, let alone imposing a threat to score a second touchdown after C.J. Spiller scored in the first.

Not only are the starters impressing, but the backups are showing some fire as well. Most notably Pat White on offense and Bryan Kehl on defense.

With the Redskins deep in Bills territory to start the fourth quarter, here’s a live look-in at how everything is going:

Third Quarter Thoughts: Redskins-Bills

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 24, 2013 – 6:30 pm

As anticipated, the Washington Redskins offense came to play this afternoon as a combination of long passing plays through the air an a steady ground game with a sprinkle of dazzle from Pat White, the Redskins entered the locker room at halftime up 20-7.

Also, say what you want about the first two quarterbacks not playing today, but there was absolutely no drop off in play from Rex Grossman and Pat White as each led a scoring drive. Grossman through the air to Garcon and White on a keeper. Due to the Bills electing to receive in the first half,  the Redskins start the half lined up to receive. Things started out rough for both offenses though.

Second Quarter Summary: Redskins-Bills

Now that’s how you make a statement in the first quarter of a football game! While forgotten by most, the Washington Redskins knew they got a steal in Brandon Jenkins in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Remember– he was considered a top 10 pick before going down with an injury.

After Jenkins’ sack forced a punt, the Redskins drove 86 yards for a Pierre Garcon touchdown. It was the first touchdown in the preseason for Garcon (his favorite preseason opponent if you can recall last year’s 7-6 victory), but the third for Rex Grossman who started the game with Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins inactive.

Anyway, we pick up the second quarter action with the Redskins on their own 43 yard line.

First Quarter Happenings: Redskins-Bills

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 24, 2013 – 4:49 pm


The Washington Redskins started their third preseason game with Rex Grossman as the starting quarterback with second-year gunslingers Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins inactive.

Grossman is obviously no stranger to FedExField  as he’s started a handful of game in front of the best fans in the world before. The most memorable of which came on Week 1 of the 2011 season when he threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-14 victory.

I must admit that the white jerseys (normally worn during road games) under the bright afternoon sun looks fantastic. It really makes the team stand out.  While Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media earlier this week that the starters will play around 20 snaps before making room for the backups, the second quarter could be the perfect time to gauge this team’s depth. In the meantime though, it was starters vs. starters for the first 15 minutes.

In the meantime, the Bills started the game with the ball in their possession after their tails call won them the coin flip, but after their first drive ended with a Brandon Jenkins sack, the Redskins marched 86 yards for an opening touchdown.

Your Pregame Pass To Redskins-Bills

With a little over 150 minutes until kickoff, the Washington Redskins started trotting onto the field for their customary pregame warm-ups.

Today’s weather is nothing short of spectacular as rumbles have been heard on the sidelines that this may very well be the best conditions they’ll encounter all season. Thank you local weathermen for getting it right this time.

The other pleasing factor that will be most thoroughly enjoyed by the coaching staff is the fact that sloppy conditions are a complete afterthought and weather won’t have an impact in talent evaluation. While the Redskins will undoubtedly encounter circumstances only favorable to that of penguins and ducks at some point over the next six months, it’s nice to solely focus on the techniques, picking up packages and the all-important performance against someone other than a teammate.

Starting with long snapper Nick Sundberg loosening up his cannon, Alfred Morris playing a friendly game of backyard toss at the 50-yard line with Robert Griffin III in full gear (white road jersey included) and one Buffalo Bill who left the heard early and is out sprinting at the speed of a buffalo, here’s how things are going:

Bruce Allen Meets With Fans, Hogettes

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 24, 2013 – 2:53 pm


If there’s one person who’s undoubtedly excited about the sunny weather at FedExField this afternoon it general manager Bruce Allen.

Just as he has done countless times before, Allen patrolled packed parking lots and greeted fans eager to meet him. As he encountered a group of fellas that he’s met hundreds, if not thousands, of times before, he realized they looked like a little different than they did last season. Sure a lot can change in seven months, but despite donning burgundy jerseys and gold polo shirts they had a much different look than they did for the last 30 years–they were the Hogettes.

Yes, they may have hung up their rubber pig snouts earlier this year and dropped the dresses, but their Redskins pride remains as unwavering as ever. As Allen said best “You may have retired, but we’re not letting your spirit retire.”

Plus they’ve already announced that they’ll still rile up the 12th man on gamedays so don’t think all of their pride was tucked away in their dress pockets.

Here are some highlights of Allen’s tour of the parking lots:

Weather A Non-Factor This Afternoon

Now it’s really starting to feel like August and that means you better remember to pack your sun screen in your clear bags this afternoon. Gone are the days of October-esque weather—for now.

Temperatures are expected to hover somewhere between the low 80’s and high 70’s plus there in zero percent chance on rain. No seriously, no precipitation. I know my umbrella is enjoying the break too.

Anyway, here’s a full forecast for the next few hours courtesy of Weather.com:
