Peterson Looks Like An All-Timer

Their eyes give them away.

Prolific runners are not built on an assembly line. Emmitt Smith and Barry Sanders were shifty and squat. Walter Payton and LaDainian Tomlinson were proportioned for power and speed. Jim Brown and Adrian Peterson got every genetic gift.

But in the time frame before a big gain, while the optic nerves flood the brain with football data, the best backs are identical below the brow.  The eyelids stretch. The whites of the eyes pop. Peripheral vision expands.

Pair that visual processing speed with unearthly physical skills and you’ve got an All-Pro tailback.

Series History: Redskins Vikings

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 6, 2013 – 2:30 pm

Truly world-class speed, the type of hustle that agitates gold chains up and down the necks of Olympic sprinters, was on display at FedExField on Oct. 14, 2012.

The rookie quarterback shot through the line, broke containment and high-stepped out of a tackle. Streamlined pumps of his arms and legs carried him through a 76-yard touchdown.

Robert Griffin III delivered an iconic moment, the longest run of his professional career to date, and expanded Washington’s lead to lay the Vikings to rest. Griffin III led the Redskins with 138 rushing yards and scored twice on the ground.

Week 10 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Fantasy owners craving some early week point explosions may finally get their kick.

Some of the Thursday Night Football games this season have produced more hair follicles removed than points. Staring at your lineup fantasizing more about the possibility of a redo option than wanting a dislike button for Facebook to let that person who shares 16 links per day to calm down, TNF hasn’t been too kind.

But with Alfred Morris, Robert Griffin III, Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon, Adrian Peterson and Greg Jennings among others playing in Week 10’s opening game, there will be no need to look at your team on Friday morning with one eye open.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy point total/ranking roundup for the Washington Redskins:

Enemy Storylines: Vikings Edition

One season ago these two proud franchises were battling for playoff positioning. Now they are hoping to notch a must-needed win in seasons marred with frustration, incremental rises, drops in execution and rides back up the roller coaster again.

Losing out in the final seconds to the Chicago Bears in Week 1, the Vikings 2013 season mirrors that of 2011 where they won only three games total after a 1-6 start.

Now 1-7 with cold weather whipping through the city streets and citizens packing away their summer clothes that they were afforded by Mother Nature for a whole six days, there hasn’t been much to get excited for.

Until now.

With their media as giddy as a child going to Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory on Halloween, all the focus this week has been on Robert Griffin III.

Shoot they even wrote about what could have been—an all-purple No. 10 jersey.

Will Redskins Pick Up Where They Left Off?

A Thursday night game just wouldn’t feel right without a few unforgettable touchdowns.

Per the league’s new scheduling structure, all 32 teams will play at least one Thursday night game this season. Tomorrow is the Redskins’ big day.

Last time the Redskins played on Thursday this…and this…and this happened. When the burgundy and gold last played the Purple People Eaters, they looked more like a baby struggling to contain a jar of applesauce when Robert Griffin III saw enough breathing room and a straight shot to the front row of the end zone stands.

In the team’s first trip to the Metrodome since 2007, Redskins.com’s featured poll on this consolidated work week is asking you who how many points YOU think the Redskins will score tomorrow night.

“They used to love to diss me. Now they rush to hug and kiss me. “

-Mike Jones

All the national experts were down on the Redskins after a a deflating fourth quarter collapse in Denver. After bowing up at the goal line and dispatching the Chargers in overtime, everybody wants back on the bandwagon headed for NFC East glory.

Pro Football Talk thinks this year’s team could be better than last season’s division-winning squad.

(Library of Congress)

November is Native American Heritage month. Throughout the month, we’ll look back at stories of interest.

On such story is the life and football exploits of Philip “Woodchuck” Welmas.

Welmas befriended the great Jim Thorpe through the football program at Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania. Decades later, the Washington Redskins would host training camp at nearby Dickinson College under Hall-of-Fame coaches Vince Lombardi, George Allen and Joe Gibbs.

Welmas went on to play professional football in the early days of the NFL in 1923.

In the picture below, he poses in his squad photo for the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in 1913.
