Vote Brian Orakpo To 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 13, 2013 – 4:31 pm



Throughout Washington’s 3-10 season, Brian Orakpo‘s message has been consistent. 

He’s not happy with the Redskins’ record, but he’s steadily vowed his effort will not wane in the final stages of days of 2013.

With three games left, several personal benchmarks are within reach for the fifth-year outside linebacker from the University of Texas.

Orakpo has reclaimed his confidence after recovering from a pectoral injury and played his best football in the past five weeks, putting together a compelling case for a 2014 NFL Pro Bowl nomination. He logged 4.5 sacks in his last five games and registered a season-high seven tackles last week against the Chiefs.

Series History: Redskins Falcons

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 13, 2013 – 11:15 am



Bobby Mitchell did everything he could.

The flanker threw a successful 17-yard pass, handled 17 carries for  39 yards and caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Sonny Jurgensen to give the Redskins a three-point lead over the the Falcons in the fourth quarter on Oct. 15, 1967.

But Mitchell didn’t kick. Washington missed the extra point after his scoring catch, and the Falcons tied the contest at 20 on a 31-yard field goal from Wade Traynham. Mitchell finished the day with 114 yards receiving but had to accept a 20-20 tie in the second ever meeting between Atlanta and Washington.

The Redskins are 15-7-1 all-time against the Falcons. Read more »

I must admit that as someone who struggles with Friggatriskaidekaphobia I must be honest in saying that I’d rather it be Sunday the 15th.

Also with a third wintry storm expected to turn the DMV into another white/slushy/semi-exciting if you’re under the age of 10/not so exciting in you’re above 10 scene, I fear we’ll all be telecommunicating three days a week by February.

Luckily for the Washington Redskins, they get to dodge the harshness of winter; both leaving the area and playing in the temperature controlled Georgia Dome to take on the Atlanta Falcons.

As the Washington Redskins have had endured a bevy of storylines this season that start out with the usage of words such as disappointing, underperforming and frustrating, so too have the Falcons, the reigning NFC South champs.

While they’ve managed to hide under ESPN’s massive shadow this week, there are still some pretty big things coming from Falcon Land:

Atlanta Falcons Coach Mike Smith Gives Three Markers Of Disappointing Seasons

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 13, 2013 – 7:00 am



Tell me if this sounds familiar.

Led by a top-10 offense, a team races to a 2012 division crown and enters 2013 with high expectations. Several national media outlets predict another division title and a playoff run. Unable to replicate the success of 2012, the team suffers a five-game losing streak during the regular season and sits at 3-10 in Week 15.

Welcome to reality in Washington and Atlanta.  Read more »
