Niles Paul made them earn it.

Students from D.C., Virginia, and Maryland flocked to the Redskins’ indoor practice facility on Tuesday to run drills with the professionals as part of the Thriving Schools Play60 Mini Combine presented by Kaiser Permanente.

Marv Levy Talks Redskins Coaches

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 12, 2013 – 3:31 pm

Levy

Back in 1970, you didn’t need $2,000 to make Marv Levy say “wow!”

In an interview with ESPN 980, Levy talked about the $1,500 raise George Allen used to lure him away from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Allen became head coach of the Redskins in 1971, and Levy followed him to Washington for two seasons before coaching stints in Canada, Kansas City and Buffalo, where he led the Bills to four straight AFC championships.

The Hall-of-Fame coach appeared on the Sports Fix on Monday to talk about coaching special teams, evaluate Washington’s current head coach and reminisce about Allen.

Pierre Garçon Is Bald

I’ve never seen man so at peace with another man shearing his head smooth. Pierre Garçon grimaced, but he forced a smile as black clumps of hair fell onto his shoulders.

New York linebacker Mark Herzlich beat Garçon in the Wahl Head to Head Challenge by raising more money for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization that supports childhood cancer research.

As the winner, Herzlich got to buzz Garçon’s noggin on national television.

Expecting The Unexpected Last 12 Years

If you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail.

For the newest generation of Washington Redskins fans, they’ve had to live by this famous Heraclitus quote. No two seasons have produced similar results as one year they’ll start fast then fade quickly before cross the finish line last in the NFC East or they’ll start cold before storming past the Cowboys, Eagles and Giants.

Since 2001, the Washington Redskins have turned poor starts into strong finishes four different times. 2012 of course is the highlight effort. Rallying from 3-6 to 10-6 and a home playoff game that some in attendance on that cold January night weren’t even alive the last time they hosted, the Redskins capped off the most miraculous of comeback stories.

Anyway, longtime Redskins beat writer John Keim has been through it all since starting his coverage of the team back in 1994 and highlighted previous turnarounds starting with 2001’s 0-5. to .500 finish.

Do you feel like breakdancing? The music in the video below will set an appropriate backdrop, so bust out the cardboard and call your friends.

Watch this sweet time-lapse video of the grounds crew at FedExField laying down new sod. The music is funky, and the crew look like tiny ants. Tiny, super productive ants capable of operating heavy machinery.

After travelling to Philadelphia this weekend, the Redskins host three straight home games.

Redskins Honor Military At Ruth’s Chris

U.S. Army National Guard Master Sgt. Jeffrey Vogel had one mission.

Find linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

At Ruth’s Chris in Arlington, Va., Monday night, Vogel tracked down Kerrigan, shook his hand and forked over a football to be signed. He returned to his Loudoun County home with a surprise for his wife from her favorite player.

In honor of Veterans Day, the Redskins sponsored admission at a Monday Night Football Meet and Greet for Vogel and 12 other military service members representing the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Army National Guard, the U.S. Navy and the USO.

At the end of the night, the players gave the military members a standing ovation.

Redskins Weekly Stat Ranking Update

Thursday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings is still one of frustration, disappointment and questioning.

How could the Redskins, who dominated nearly every statistical category, come away without a victory?

They controlled the time of possession battle, threw for more yards, had the better running back performance and didn’t turn over the ball for the first time this season. Yet they lost.

Anyway, looking beyond the myriad of problems through the first nine games of the season, there have been a few incredible individual performances of note. Some have been under the radar and others with league-leading performances.

With DeAngelo Hall’s NFL-high three defensive touchdowns, running back Alfred Morris on pace to surpass last season’s record-breaking performance, Pierre Garcon entering the same pantheon that Art Monk and Charley Taylor sit in and Ryan Kerrigan still within striking distance of winning the first Deacon Jones Award, the team has the firepower to storm to the top of the NFC East once again.

Similar to leading the offense in the huddle, we trot this week’s update out with quarterback Robert Griffin III leading the way (NFL rank in parenthesis—no not these, the ones below):
