Chris Cooley Talks Loudoun Leadership

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 25, 2013 – 6:06 pm

Chris Cooley never set out to own a business. Once he did, he said he took pride in trying to make it the best in the county, the best in the state and the best he could make it.

At a Loudoun County Leadership Luncheon  on Thursday, the former Redskins tight end, radio personality and art gallery owner told the audience how he started the Cooley Gallery, how the Leesburg,Va., community has supported him and what he thinks is the biggest key to leadership. Read more »

Chris Baker Is Ready To Face Old Team

Last Sunday in front of a raucous crowd at FedExField, the Washington Redskins managed many firsts. There was the first home victory of the season, the first Brian Orakpo interception and subsequent pick-six, the first Roy Helu Jr. three touchdown performance, the first 40-point game of 2013 and so on and so forth.

However, there was only one play that deserved it’s own dance—defensive lineman Chris Baker’s first career sack.

Baker is in his second season with the Redskins and is one of the most enjoyable people to be around—football player or not. When it’s time to strap down and get to work, Baker is there ready to contribute whether it be at nose tackle or defensive end. Away from the field, he’s always there to provide a hearty laugh and keep the spirit of the locker room up.

Mike Shanahan won’t be the only notable return to Denver. The Mile High City is where Baker got his big break in the NFL.

The Woman Behind The Best Version of ‘Hail To The Redskins’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 25, 2013 – 3:06 pm

Beryl

If original Redskins band leader Barnee Breeskin were still with us, he’d probably tell you the spirited version of “Hail to the Redskins” sung by Larry Michael, Sonny Jurgensen, Chris Cooley and Doc Walker in the broadcast booth at FedEx Field last Sunday was lovely, but not his favorite.

That honor went to a British waitress turned lounge singer who published a cut of the fight song in 1974.

With the tune in the forefront of my mind, I tracked down Beryl Middleton-Walters, a 74-year old retiree living with her husband in Sarasota, Fla., who sang the interpretation Breeskin said he liked best.

Robert Griffin III had a statement game against Chicago.

By completing more than 60 percent of his passes for the first time since Week 3 vs. Detroit, posting a quarterback rating above 100 for the second time in 2013 and averaging a season-best 10.28 yards per pass attempt, Griffin III proved he’s back to the playing form that earned him 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year.

In a Friday conversation with John Keim, ESPN’s quarterback guru explained the improvement he observed on film. Read more »

Enemy Storylines: Denver Broncos

A lot has been vocalized this week about Mike Shanahan’s return to Denver, but behind the nostalgia of 14 years of success is a game between a Denver Broncos team looking to keep pace with the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs and a Washington Redskins squad looking to get back in the hunt.

Featuring a quarterback duel between two polar opposites in style of play, defenses that are looking to stop the bleeding and a special teams battle that on paper heavily favors the Broncos, Broncos-Redskins is the matchup of Sunday afternoon.

Against an elite opponent the Redskins would secure more than just a notch in the win column of Sunday if they pull off the upset.

There’s the old cliché that sports are 90 percent mental, but a win over a Peyton Manning led team that at one point looked destined to break about 15 offensive records, confidence would literally be a mile high.

Anyway, beyond hammering down more boring sayings here is this week’s storyline roundup of what Denver and national media are following:

On Wednesday, former Denver Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey joined The Drive with Cooley and Czabe on ESPN 980 to talk Mike Shanahan.

McCaffrey joined Shanahan in a move from San Francisco to Denver following the 1994 season, having his greatest success in the Mile High City.

Under Shanahan’s tutelage, McCaffrey accumulated 6,200 receiving yards, 46 touchdowns and of course two Super Bowl victories in nine seasons.

He spoke in-depth about Shanahan’s high football IQ and ability to get the most out of his players.
