RECAP: “18 Plays” Part One

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 29, 2013 – 6:03 pm

and the rout was on

All week long we’re bringing you the memories.

Sunday marks the latest iteration of the annual Redskins Alumni Homecoming game. During halftime of Washington’s home tilt against the San Diego Chargers, the team will honor alumni from the Super Bowl XXII squad that won a championship 25 years go.

Throughout the week Redskins.com is releasing segments of the documentary “18 Plays: The Story of the Super Bowl 22 Champions.”

We’ve covered my passion for documentary-style film before, so I don’t need to tell you how excited I am about this.

Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite moments from the first part of “18 Plays,” which tells the story of a trade nixed at the 25th hour and how Doug Williams sat on the bench before becoming a Super Bowl MVP.

Turnover Battle Hurts Team This Go-Round

Each week I take a portion of Tuesday afternoon to reflect on play(s) that changed momentum during the previous game.

Take Aldrick Robinson’s debatable no-touchdown call against the Detroit Lions earlier in the season. Down by three in the fourth quarter and 74 years worth of home success against the downtrodden franchise hanging in the balance, Robinson gained the necessary separation from his defender (which for most wouldn’t be enough) to free himself for a touchdown.

Unfortunately, whether you agree with the Incredible Hulk of referees (Ed Hochuli) or not, the ruling of not having possession through the catch stunted the Redskins comeback attempt.

On Sunday, the hysteria of possibly beating the most predicted team to win the Super Bowl skyrocketed as soon as DeAngelo Hall took back his third touchdown of the season . But unsuccessful play after unsuccessful play and a shocking five turnovers to end the game ruined the team’s glimmer of victory.

Harris Teeter Premieres ‘Garcon De Pierre’

Pierre Garcon can typically get by with one hand.

But the “Garcon de Pierre” sub he debuted Tuesday at Harris Teeter in Reston, Va., required his full attention.

Featuring grilled chicken breast, swiss cheese, lettuce, pickles, banana peppers, honey mustard, oil and vinegar, ranch dressing and salt and pepper on a white sub roll, the “Garcon de Pierre” was a heavy lift.

“It’s a two-handed sandwich,” Garcon said. “You gotta protect it.”

Garcon’s Touchdown Pledge To Sankner

In September, Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon pledged to donate money to Tara Sankner, an eight-year old who is battling an inoperable form of brain cancer, for every touchdown he scored against the Philadelphia Eagles in the season opener.

Despite hauling in a team-high seven catches for 64 yards, Garcon was held out of the end zone.

Without a touchdown, Garcon decided to rollover his touchdowns pledge, but not just against Green Bay the next week.

In honor of National Childhood Awareness Month, Garcon extended his vow to help Sankner through the end of the month.

Recording two touchdowns in the month, the first against the Packers and the other in Oakland, Garcon not only helped his team but the Sankner family.

When we last checked in with Pierre and Tara, he was spending a Sunday with her making bracelets. While she made several beautiful bracelets of varying color combinations, Garcon admitted that he was no match. “She was so much better than me at it.” he recalled.

Last week, Garcon and Sankner met up once again, but this time he had something far greater than a ball of yarn in his “fat” hands—an oversized check that was signed by the team.

Own Ultimate Piece Of Redskins Pride

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 29, 2013 – 12:21 pm

Once upon a time, belts were a simple, utilitarian fashion accessory, designed to prevent the embarrassment of bringing publicity to rather private matters.

Over time, there became a hierarchy of belts, with the birth of fashionable belts including, but not limited to: large buckle belts, reversible belts, elastic belts, braided belts, sashay belts, chain belts, cumberbunds and the distant cousin suspenders.

But at the top of the belt food chain sits the undisputed…well, champion; the championship belt. Made famous by professional wrestling, it is the ultimate symbol of celebration, authority and swag.

It is the perfect belt for all seasons, particularly football season. This year, the Washington Redskins bring you the ultimate gift for any proud fan.

Follow Josh Morgan’s Steps On Gameday

“This was a dream come true.  Not even in my wildest dreams did I picture I’d be coming home.”

Those were some of the first words veteran wide receiver Joshua Morgan murmured in his first interview after signing with the Redskins last March.

Growing up in the shadow of famed RFK Stadium, Morgan continually preaches the importance of local community, both thankful for their support and hoping to use his fame to bring awareness to child literacy and fitness.

On the field, Morgan has asserted himself as the team’s No. 1 punt and kick returner along with providing quarterback Robert Griffin III another weapon alongside Pierre Garcon, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson.

Returning home after nearly a month away, CSN Washington followed Morgan from the start of his work day to the end against the Bears last week.

A devoted family man, it’s really great to see him be able to spend quality time with his loved ones after the game and hear his motivation come Sundays.

“I’m just trying to make my city proud and my family proud and do the best I can to get a victory.”

Redskins Weekly Stat Ranking Update

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 29, 2013 – 10:02 am

The only stat that matters to any of the players in the locker room is number of victories.

So far this season they’ve only been able to get two of those. When the team puts together a complete performance or something close to it (ie: the Raiders and Bears games) they win. Plain and simple. Just look at the numbers.

But when one facet of the team starts to flicker, the entire thing seems to just blow away. It pains me to bring up both, but take the first quarter of the Eagles game and the fourth quarter against the Broncos as evidence.

Anyway, behind the disappointment of letting a huge victory off the hook, there were a few individual performances of note to include Alfred Morris’ rising yards per carry (YPC) and DeAngelo Hall’s NFL-high third defensive touchdown on the season.

Don’t let the 2-5 record prevent you from noticing some great individual efforts this season.
