Chase Minnifield’s Path To The Top 53

When you think of Redskins players courageously returning from multiple knee injuries, Chase Minnifield probably isn’t the first guy to come to mind.

Minnifield saw his stock drop coming out of college because of a microfracture surgery he required at the University of Virginia. He signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2012, then impressed coaches in minicamps. The defensive back then tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee and spent the 2012 season on injured reserve.

After serving on the practice squad through the first 11 games, Minnifield claimed the 53rd roster spot on Friday, when Mike Shanahan told him just before practice he would be elevated to the active roster.

Here’s a timeline of links covering Minnifield’s Redskins career up to this point: Read more »

AL

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth aren’t just flying by the seats of their pants.

Every insight you hear on NBC Sunday Night Football is the result of lengthy research and observation. A day after NBC broadcasted the Ravens Steelers game in Baltimore, the TV crew visited Redskins Park to watch practice, hold production meetings and prepare for Sunday Night Football.

Watch Cris Collinsworth detail the hospitality he received before Al Michaels belts out part of the team’s fight song. Extra kudos to hockey fan Al for his Hawaiian sign off.  Read more »

Series History: Redskins Giants

The football spun tightly in the end zone. Pierre Garçon’s hands jackhammered up and down and beat his chest after he put a little English on the dancing pigskin.

With Garçon’s fourth-quarter touchdown catch and Kai Forbath’s extra point, the Redskins took a 17-16 lead on the Giants. On Dec. 3, 2012, Robert Griffin III ran for 72 yards on five carries and notched a win in his Monday Night Football debut. Washington split the season series with New York and moved to .500 for the first time since falling in a 3-6 hole.  Read more »

Of the more than 430 Navajo Code Talkers that served the United States in secret during World War II, only about 35 are still alive to tell their story.

Peter MacDonald, president of the code talkers, sat down with Larry Michael at the National Museum of the Marine Corps to talk about the legacy of these Native Americans and how to preserve it.

“It really produced significant results and ended the war in the Pacific,” MacDonald said. “We believe that’s a legacy not only belonging to a Navajo legacy or a Marine Corps legacy, but we believe it’s a legacy for all America.”

Watch the full video below. To support the Navajo Code Talkers and learn more about their mission go to navajocodetalkers.org Read more »

That Time The Redskins Put 72 On NYG

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 28, 2013 – 10:24 am

Capture

“It was a great defensive battle,” joked Washington Redskins head coach Otto Graham.

That’s how Pro Football Hall of Fame’s press release on the single highest scoring game in NFL history starts.

Honestly, as an avid lover of the art form known as Madden, even I the guy who runs vertical routes all day long probably can’t put up 72 points. I can’t even put up 72 points in a basketball game where I’m spotted 70 either.

But that’s exactly what the Redskins did to the New York Giants on November 27th, 1966.

Despite frigid temps like the ones that have whipped through our region this week, the fans at RFK Stadium were treated to the game of a lifetime.
