Inside Sonny’s Office: No More Grudges

Sonny Jurgensen roams Redskins Park on Fridays, posting up in his honorary office, a black leather couch in the lobby. There’s even a nameplate. Ever the opportunist, I like to visit with Sonny and solicit some blog material. This week’s brief chat covered his Philadelphia memories,  what the Redskins need to do in Week 11 and his thoughts on Nick Foles.

The old chip on his shoulder crumbled to pieces at some point.

In 1964, Philadelphia didn’t want Sonny Jurgensen. He made the Eagles pay.

Jurgensen looks at the game today and sees too many differences to hold a grudge. Shibe Park and Franklin Field no longer host NFL games.

When Jurgensen thinks of Philadelphia now, he thinks of visiting Tommy McDonald and looks back at one of the strangest days he had in an Eagles uniform.

Chris Baker Gives Back To Windsor

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 15, 2013 – 4:03 pm

The many they call “Swaggy”stood in front of the high school football team wearing his cavernous smile and a toggled green sweater.

Nose tackle Chris Baker returned to Windsor, Conn., as a success story, an emblem of what could come of out of the Hartford area. Baker fielded questions about his day-to-day life as a professional athlete. Then he talked about his mistakes.

Years before Baker’s career survived cuts from two other teams, before he became a member of Washington’s defensive line rotation, the big man messed up.

Jordan Reed On Griffin III, East, Downtime

Played quarterback? Check. Played wide receiver? Check. Played tight end? Check. Quickly becoming one of Redskins Nation’s favorite players? Check, check, check.

These days it seems Jordan Reed can do it all to include being in Virginia and Florida at the same time. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but the rookie tight end has proved that regardless of where you are drafted, all that matters when you make the NFL is proving you belong.

Chalk up 44 receptions for 487 yards and three touchdowns in only eight games as proof of this kid’s immense talent and ability to crave out a key slot in the Redskins’ offense.

Talking X’s and O’s with NBCSports’ Erik Kuselias, Reed also spoke about what he enjoys doing with his time away from the field as well as that guy that gets him the ball each week and a cluttered NFC East.

Shanahan Leans On Oklahoma Experience

(Via philadelphiaeagles.com)

The NFL is a copycat league. One does it and pretty soon everyone is.

In 2013, offensive wizards are incorporating flashy packages that spread out defenses and cater to the skillsets of duel-threat quarterbacks.

For head coach Mike Shanahan it’s a back to the future sort of thing. No he doesn’t drive a DeLoriean with scissor doors around the Ashburn area and he doesn’t have a flux capacitor, but he does have experience in this whole option thing dating back to his days under legendary coach Barry Switzer in 1975.

Santana Moss Sees Nick Williams, Thinks Wayne Chrebet

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 15, 2013 – 10:50 am

Santana Moss takes off running (Gabe Hiatt)

Nick Williams (13) watches Santana Moss (89)

Growing up in East Windsor, N.J., Nick Williams watched Santana Moss return punts and catch passes for the Jets. When Williams signed with the Redskins in May, the 5-foot-10 undrafted free agent immediately planted himself in the veteran receiver’s ear.

Williams asked questions every day. Moss answered, gradually getting to know a cerebral young player that reminded him of another undrafted 5-foot-10 slot receiver from New Jersey.

Enemy Storylines Vs. Philly Part Two

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 15, 2013 – 9:00 am

Whether it’s Philly Cheesesteak vs. half smokes or opposing historical structures embedded in this country’s fabric signaling our freedom like the Liberty Bell and the Washington Monument, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. don’t have a whole lot in common except being American cities that house heated NFC East rivals.

Sunday marks the 158th time the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles will take the field together. With playoff position jockeying more important than ever, this game could rank up there with all-time greats such as Sonny vs. Philly Round I and the NFC Wild Card game that was enough to force the Eagles to move in a new direction following the 1991 season.

Anyway, after consuming a few Philly Cheesesteaks and the buckets of grease that oozes out from the deliciousness, the media members of Philly wrote about these storylines that are said to be important:
