Redskins Pro Bowlers Announced

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 9:00 pm

Trent Williams

Congratulations to Trent Williams for earning his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection. The offensive tackle was an integral piece of  a Redskins offensive line that has started every game together and blocked Washington to the NFL’s fourth-most yards rushing.

In addition to Williams, four Redskins made the newly formatted all-star game as alternates available to replace starters sitting out with injuries or playing in the Super Bowl.  Read more »

Darrel Young, Santana Moss Share Redskins Media ‘Good Guy’ Award

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 4:56 pm



Around the time Washington fell to 3-6, the media began to wonder who in the locker room would change.

When the team struggled, beat reporters knew they could trust at least two players to provide consistent, honest answers to their questions.

Wide receiver Santana Moss and fullback Darrel Young stood out. On Friday, they were recognized for their professionalism with the Redskins Media Good Guy Award.

Each received eight votes according to ESPN NFL Nation reporter John Keim, who has covered the team since 1994.

Pierre Garcon

The NFL won’t release its official list of 2014 Pro Bowl selections until 9 p.m. ET Friday night, but CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist Pete Prisco already has his personal list available.

Prisco picked Pierre Garçon and Trent Williams as backups for the first unconferenced Pro Bowl. He thinks Brian Orakpo just missed the cut.  Read more »

2014 NFC South Opponents To Be Determined This Weekend

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 12:00 pm



One of the bottom feeders in the NFC South will travel to Washington in 2014. What happens this weekend will decide which one.

At 3-12, the Redskins will finish last in the NFC East no matter what happens Sunday in New York, which means, per NFL protocols, the team’s 2014 opponents are all but set.

Washington will play a typical divisional slate, four games against the NFC West, four games against the AFC South, a road contest against the last place team in the NFC North (Minnesota is locked in) and a home game against the last place team in the NFC South. Read more »

Barry Sanders, Eddie George, Clinton Portis, Earl Campbell, Alfred Morris.

18 months ago one of the names above would have stuck out like a sore thumb.

But Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris’ transcendence from unbeknownst sixth round selection to elite running back continued last weekend when his 88-yard performance vs. the Dallas Cowboys gave him the ninth most yards through the first two NFL seasons with 2,826.

If he records 174 yards on Sunday vs. the New York Giants, he’ll become only the seventh man in NFL history to rush for 3,000 yards in his first two NFL seasons.

On Thursday at his weekly press conference, head coach Mike Shanahan was asked about Morris’ performance and unsurprisingly had nothing but positive things to say.

“He’s done a great job,” Shanahan unequivocally explained. “Here a guy comes in with very few expectations, and he just kind of keeps his nose to the grindstone and just works. That’s what you love to see – a guy have the type of success that he’s had.

“He’s got all the things that you look for in a person. He’s a hard worker, he sets some good standards for himself and hopefully he has a great future here.”

A deeper look at his placement amongst the greats:

WAS-NYG Enemy Links Roundup

The Washington Redskins and New York Giants battle at MetLife Stadium this Sunday with pride on the line.

I don’t think it’s any mystery that the scheduling gods handpicked these two in a Week 17 matchup for a reason. The Redskins, of course, were coming of a 10-6 NFC East winning season. The Giants, despite 2012’s woes, were primed for another on-year run (because they won the Super Bowl than fell flat—then won another Super Bowl before falling again. So the needle was pointing up).

Instead, this game pits teams with a combined nine wins this season.

With the Redskins looking to avoid being swept in the division for the first time since 2009 and the Giants looking to end the season strong, here’s what Big Apple beat reporters have been discussing this week:

London Fletcher Explains ’99 Percent’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 7:00 am

London Fletcher

Ever since London Fletcher announced he was all but certain about retiring after the season, the linebacker left a nagging one percent open to debate.

Fletcher said then and has since maintained he is 99 percent sure he will retire after his 256th consecutive regular season game.

Maybe he didn’t want to create a Favreian dilemma. Maybe he just couldn’t wrap his head around life without football.

In the locker room at Redskins Park on Thursday, Fletcher shined a little light on what 99 percent means to him. Read more »
