Nick Dulo and brothers Brian and Chris Bagot couldn’t say no to the van.
When the Redskins season ticket holders first saw a 1992 Chevy with burgundy paint and a gold face mask, they knew it had to be theirs.

The Bye Week served two purposes for the Washington Redskins.
The first of which was to rest up from the first quarter of the season. 1-3, the Redskins regrouped and recuperated with loved ones.
The second was to give them a break from the “experts” dissecting their every walking step—over cracks and all.
With the time off now in the rearview mirror, it’s time to restart the weekly power rankings roundup. Gaining momentum in the rankings last week after surmounting a successful comeback attempt, the Redskins idling actually hurt their ranking?
Don’t stand near a water cooler next to a router when these guys talk rankings and which restaurant serves the best burger in town.
They only dropped them further towards the bottom and I need Internet to finish the rest of my work today.

Maybe you like the History Channel.
Maybe you like to whittle the hours away with first-hand accounts of brave Americans storming the beaches of Normandy. Maybe you get a kick out of bearded duck-call moguls.
That’s all solid programming, but I don’t watch. When I need my nostalgia fix, I turn to the NFL archives, preferably video filled with spots and cracks indicative of 16 mm film, preferably produced by the Redskins.
The latest installment of Redskins Chronicles covering the Redskins Cowboys Rivalry is a treasure trove of historical video. Watch the clip. Not only will you learn the story behind one of the NFL’s most impassioned rivalries, you’ll pick up priceless details of past periods.
This is my second day on the job at Redskins.com, and I couldn’t think of a better way to settle in.
Here are my five favorite things about the Redskins Chronicles episode covering the Redskins Cowboys Rivalry:
1. NFL marching bands: Our first sign of a bygone era also spotlights talented musicians who played “Hail to the Redskins.” We learn in Redskins Chronicles that the rights to that song were essential to the birth of the Cowboys. Old-timey trades were the best.
2. Clint Murchison, Jr., has a 300-pound, cast-iron double phone. What is this device? It just looks like a phone receiver glued to another one. I can’t imagine it helping in any way, but I want one shipped to my desk at Redskins Park immediately.

Just went it seemed like it couldn’t get any better, the linebacker corps returns Rob Jackson this weekend after he served his four-game suspension.
Spelling Brian Orakpo for a play here or there is no easy task—a pass-rush stalwart and high-octane energy guy, No. 98 is one of a kind. But replacing him for 14 games in the starting lineup?
Not only did Rob Jackson set career-highs in his absence, but he capped off 2012 with an interception off Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo that set up the game-winning touchdown and made a home playoff game reality for the first time in 13 years.
But one interception off Romo isn’t good enough.
