It’s rainy and gray in the Nation’s Capital today, making a Monday with no organized nap time that much more fun.
But on a day like today, there are three things that should make every Redskins fan smile. First of all, the Redskins are back at full strength after the bye week, bolstering the defense with two regulars from last year: Jarvis Jenkins and Rob Jackson.
Secondly, the Dallas Cowboys–this week’s opponent–lost in heart-warming fashion yesterday, with Tony Romo leading the world in passing yards and touchdowns, before serving up one of his patented Romo Turnovers.
The third reason for Redskins fans to be excited is Papa John’s 10 FREE TOPPINGS special, for Monday only!

If there is one player football fans rarely beg to see on the field, it’s the punter.
Trotting out after the offense failed to convert first down(s), their job is to pin the opposition deep in their own territory.
Seen around here before and at the practice facilities and stadiums of the other 31 NFL teams, a bad punter can seriously hinder a team’s chances at victory. A good punter is the best first-line of defense and great punters hurt offenses before they even step on the field.
For the Redskins, they never had to worry about any punt from 1968-1979 as Mike Bragg, Richmond, Va. native, was as great as any punter past or present.
The only strictly punter in the prestigious 80 Greatest Redskins, Bragg was a top 10 during his playing days.
During the Bye Week, Amanda Mitchell and Mike Richman, caught up with Bragg on Redskins Chronicles.

Most of the Washington Redskins went home last weekend, doing anything but football to rest their bodies from both months of training camp two-a-days and for the grueling road ahead with 12 regular season games left.
Don’t count Pierre Garcon though, as one who kicked his feet up on the couch, watched the Price is Right and didn’t move until the doorbell rang with the three pizzas he ordered from Papa Johns.
Instead of using his hands to search for the remote that fell between the cushions, he was catching footballs of a smaller variety—with boxing gloves on.
Oh and did I mention the vision impairing glasses?

While the coaching staff is hard at work this morning analyzing footage from last night’s Cowboys game, their preparations started last week when most of the players were home with their loved ones.
Despite getting the monkey off their back by snapping a three-game losing streak in a “must-win” game against Oakland, this weekend’s game has more severe and direct implications.
The Redskins (1-3) sit behind the Cowboys (2-3) for first place in the division. You can fill in the obvious blanks of what that means.
“We started working on Dallas,” defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said last week. “They’re a little bit different than they were last year obviously, but same players and it’s always a heck of a football game.”

Coming off the Bye Week last season, the Washington Redskins recorded an improbable seven-game winning streak to include two wins over the Dallas Cowboys, two wins over the Philadelphia Eagles and a heart stopping 17-16 victory over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
From 3-6 to 10-6, the 2012 season was one of the greatest in team history, but was it the best ever?
Obviously that is difficult to say knowing that it has some stiff competition from you know–1982, 1987 and 1991 in particular.
So, to kick off post Bye Week (non-)activity, ProFootballGuru.com is asking fans which season was the best in franchise history.
Of course there is no better way to start of this discussion than with some video:
