The most productive wide receiver in Redskins history made a beeline for Pierre Garçon one day one day during training camp in Richmond, Va.

Art Monk had a message for the team’s top wideout.

“He told me to keep working hard, keep giving your best effort,” Garçon said. “He’s definitely somebody we look up to in this community.”

With four games left in a losing season, Monk has given Garçon something to fight for besides personal pride. Read more »

Coordinators Talk Week 13, Kansas City

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 3:50 pm

Game manager or not, the Redskins hath not forgotten about quarterback Alex Smith.

Sure he might not pick you apart Peyton Manning style and he tends not to go downfield often, but he’s keen on wearing down opponents mentally to the point where uncharacteristic slipups appear.

He’s also one of the winningest quarterbacks over the last three seasons.

With David Amerson really coming on in recent weeks and Bacarri Rambo regaining some of that training camp swagger that made him a fan favorite, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett talked about his rookie DBs development with the matchup against the former N0. 1 pick looming large.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan explained the unit’s balance between pass and run and his strategy between running it with Alfred Morris and telling Robert Griffin III to gain chunks of yardage with his legs.

DaJohn Harris Adjusting To DC, Talks USC

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 3:13 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The biggest news coming from USC football Tuesday wasn’t the press conference for new head coach Steve Sarkisian (enjoy trying to spell that one correctly the first time). It was the signing of former defensive lineman DaJohn Harris to the Redskins practice squad.

Harris’ signing is the most recent of a plethora of moves the Redskins have made over the last few weeks (complete transaction log here) and is the next lineman on tap following Stephen Bowen’s placement on IR.

So for those of you who didn’t stay up until two in the morning to watch the Trojans, here’s a little background of the man himself.

Oh and he also talks a little Sarkisian, too.

Coach’s Turn: Mike Shanahan At The Mic

From a historical standpoint, this isn’t the first time that Mike Shanahan and Andy Reid have faced off in a matchup between AFC West and NFC East.

Who woulda thunk a few years ago, though, that Shanahan would be representing the East and Reid the West.

In charge of the Broncos for 14 seasons, Shanahan boasts a 16-15 overall recorded against Kansas City to include one playoff victory.

Shanahan made little importance of the head coach battle and instead focused on his own team, one that has an increasing number of injuries to speak of to include to the jumbo pregame inflatable helmet.

VIDEO–First Meeting With Kansas City

Little did this videographer know at the time that the footage being taped would be used on something called a blog 42 years later.

One has always been a proud NFL franchise. The other was dominant in the AFL.

Regardless of past, the Washington Redskins (5-0) and the Kansas City Chiefs (4-1) met for the first time in 1971 at Kansas City Municipal Stadium,

While the Redskins would suffer their first defeat of the George Allen era it’s always pretty cool to see footage like this from back in the day when the world hadn’t invented a neon color scale and TV’s that are $40,000–on sale:

Brian Orakpo Freezes Out Jamaal Charles

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 5, 2013 – 1:04 pm

(AP)

Starting Sunday night, Brian Orakpo put a moratorium on the good ol’ days.

In the offseason, the dynamic pass rusher resides in Austin, Texas, and works out with his fellow University of Texas alumni Jamaal Charles and Derrick Johnson.

Right now he won’t speak to the Pro Bowlers from Chiefs.  Read more »

Happy 56th Birthday To Art Monk

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 11:06 am

Art Monk, Donnell Woolford

On this fifth day of the 12th month of 2013 Washington Redskins great Art Monk turns 56.

Happy birthday!

The franchise’s all-time leader in receptions (888) and receiving yards (12,026–3,000 more than No. 2 Charley Taylor), Monk finally got into the Hall of Fame in 2008 alongside cornerback Darrell Green.

His protracted wait into the Pro Football Hall of Fame was well documented—because it’s still crazy to think he wasn’t considered a first ballot guy by those who get a vote.

In honor of his special day, I found some YouTube videos of his playing days, Hall of Fame speech and the amazing four minute standing ovation he received prior to ringing off a list of thanks to those who helped him during his journey from Syracuse stud to one of the best football players to ever walk the face of the earth.

If the 240 second endorsement from the burgundy and gold crowd doesn’t make you shed a tear that I honestly don’t know what can.

What Did Alfred Morris Do With The Gingerbread Man?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 5, 2013 – 10:30 am

This is a mystery scented with ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and cloves.

Just what was Alfred Morris doing at the mall chasing the gingerbread man? What did he do when he caught him?

Knowing Alfred, it was something benign like asking after gingy’s pastry children or rounding up votes for an anti-milk dunking petition. Read more »

Week 14 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 5, 2013 – 9:58 am

Well it’s the most wonderful time of the year for you (optimistic) fantasy football owners out there. It’s playoff time.

Now I must admit that I’d rather be saying that about—you know—the actually playing of football. The one that’s outside and actually counts for somethin’.

Enough of the mini rant.

While the Redskins might be eliminated from playoff contention, that doesn’t mean that some of the stars aren’t viable options as you face do-or-die. As head coach Mike Shanahan said on Monday, it’s time to play spoiler. Possible translation—take the reins off and if needed just go crazy.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy football projection/ranking roundup:
