Meet Sofia Vos, Youngest Redskins Fan

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 19, 2013 – 2:54 pm

Redskins Nation, I would like to introduce you to Sofia Scarlett Ann Vos, your newest member.

Sofia was born on Tuesday at 1:05 EST, a happy and healthy 6 pounds, 2 ounces at the Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, England. Her proud dad, Lawrence Vos, sent me an email detailing her birth. This is the second time the Voses, lifelong English Redskins fans, have been so kind as to have a child during the NFL season.

Your’s truly has been there to celebrate the birth of both bouncing baby girls.

For a 2-day-old baby, Sofia has already lived an exciting life, arriving nearly four weeks early to be here in time to watch the end of the 2013 NFL season. In years to come, she will be able to tell her grandkids the story of how she was the good luck charm that put the Redskins over the top during Dallas Week, 2013.

And how she was almost named after Art Monk. Read more »

Throwback Thursday: 1995 Was A Good Year (To Beat The Dallas Cowboys)

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 19, 2013 – 12:29 pm

(AP)

Among the turmoil that’s defined this season, the Dallas Cowboys offer a beacon of hope.

In his Wednesday press conference, Mike Shanahan said he did not relish playing the potential spoiler role. He’d rather be competing for playoff seedings.

But still, with as much bad blood as these teams harbor toward each other, #DallasWeek offers a nice oasis. The Redskins have a chance to inflict their pain on the Cowboys. Keeping Dallas at home during January could be a nice carrot.

So that got me thinking. How has Washington fared against Dallas during down seasons? I researched how every Redskins team with at least 10 losses played against the Cowboys. Read more »

Darrell Green Shows Off Rookie Helmet

One of the many morning tasks when I get to work, after sitting and waiting in traffic like thousands of other DMV’ers, is to see what Redskins Nation was up to overnight. Especially with London Fletcher’s announcement of one percent possibility that 2013 won’t be his last season, a lot when on yesterday without our net initially capturing it.

With #DallasWeek (just accept that hastags are now a part of modern journalism/life/language) in full swing, there were many a moments I found myself looking at in the media gallery on Redskins.com. One of the most memorable Redskins-Cowboys flashbacks that gets people going is Darrell Green—a tenderfoot Green making his very first NFL appearance—running down an overly confident Tony Dorsett just short of a long touchdown scamper.

Speaking of Green’s rookie season, he tweeted out this #TBT picture of his rookie helmet and an exchange he made with the Minister of Defense:

Comparison Of London Fletcher, Ray Lewis

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 19, 2013 – 10:13 am

London Fletcher

The National Football League has changed drastically since 1998. The Houston Texans were still years away from creation, the Tennessee Titans were still the Oilers and the Arizona Cardinals were still misplace in the NFC East.

One thing that hadn’t change until the end of the 2012 season–inside linebackers London Fletcher and Ray Lewis patrolling the center of their respective defensive units.

While the two gladiators are widely regarded as some of the greatest of the modern era, their approach to the game is/was polar opposite.

Lewis decided to hang up his cleats after tasting Super Bowl success again in February, leaving Fletcher as one of the few remaining legends who began playing professionally before the turn of the century. On Wednesday, Fletcher said he might follow him into the land of retirement following the season.

While the debate rages on as to which player is consider “the better” of the two, I instead wanted to take a look at their backgrounds.

Here’s what my research led to:

London Fletcher’s Hits Draw Explosive Nickname

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 19, 2013 – 7:00 am

London Fletcher sets the tone. London Fletcher sets the tempo.

When he leads the linebackers out of the tunnel at FedExField, Fletcher lets his unit know it’s their job to dictate the style and the pace of the game. At a squat 5-foot-10 and 242 pounds, Fletcher makes up for his less than prototypical size with ferocity.

While reflecting on Fletcher immediately after the linebacker announced he would likely retire at the end of the season, veteran Kedric Golston said he was always most impressed by the way Fletcher sacrificed his body for big hits that pop like dynamite.

“We used to call ‘em ‘Fletchbombs,'” Golston said. Read more »
