(Comedy Central)

After appearing on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central Tuesday night, Hall-of-Fame Redskins coach Joe Gibbs returned Wednesday to light a fire under the cable TV host (or maybe just to get his ring back).

Gibbs delivered a pep talk from a script Stephen Colbert asked him to read. The address had all the makings of a classic speech: a republican president,  a coming of age book for young ladies and SurvivorRead more »

Redskins cornerback and soon-to-be free agent DeAngelo Hall is sending a care package from Super Bowl XLVIII.

Hall lent a hand to the Super Baskets of Hope event at the Renaissance Meadowlands Hotel in Rutherford, N.J., on Monday, filling baskets with games, crafts, toys, books and NFL team merchandise to be shipped by FedEx to to Georgetown University Hospital and more than 20 children’s hospitals around the country.

Hall will personally deliver packages to the children in Atlanta. Other NFL players and alumni will distribute gifts at other sites. Former Redskins special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander will be on hand at Georgetown. Read more »

Once A Redskin, Champ Bailey Could Be A Super Bowl XLVIII Champion

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 1:30 pm

The Champ is there, and for the first time in a 15-year NFL career, his name could relinquish any modicum of irony.

Roland “Champ” Bailey Jr., whom the Washington Redskins drafted with the seventh overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, will represent the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Bailey contributed to an NFC East title in Washington as a rookie in 1999 and was named to the Pro Bowl in three of four AFC West championship campaigns for Denver. But the 2013 season wrought his first conference championship, and as a result, his first trip to the Super Bowl.

Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., offers a chance for the man who’s earned every superlative to capture the most coveted prize in the game. In the week leading up to the game, Bailey’s history with the Redskins before a 2004 trade sent him to Denver has been a topic at the Super Bowl media circus.

Why, Kevin Durant? WHY?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 11:00 am

Please step away from the quarterback, Kevin.

I understand you want to support of any fan who attends a Thunder game, but we can’t have your mojo rubbing off on Tony Romo.

The biggest Redskins fan in the NBA posed for a picture with the Cowboys quarterback after defeating the Atlanta Hawks with a 12-foot dagger he drained 1.5 seconds before the final buzzer. As of Wednesday, Durant leads the NBA with 31.3 points per game. He’s topped 30 points in the last 11 games he played and scored at least 40 five times in January alone.

Durant is not fond of the “Slim Reaper” moniker, but maybe his touch will have a deathly effect on Romo’s late-game heroics against the Redskins. We still love you, Kevin.

Stephen Colbert Stole Joe Gibbs’ Super Bowl Ring

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 10:19 am

(Comedy Central)

(Comedy Central)

The life of Joe Gibbs in 2014 mostly consists of ministry and race cars. Ministry, race cars and cable television appearances with satirically conservative pundits.

The head coach of Washington’s Super Bowl XVII, XXII and XXVI championship teams appeared on “The Colbert Report” Tuesday night to talk football and assure Colbert  that Chuck Knoll possessed no divine advantage. The two-time coach of the Redskins gave the franchise a nice shout-out on national television.

“I think it’s the greatest town to coach in,” Gibbs told Colbert. “That is the greatest sports franchise I think in the world.”

Colbert, who was born in Washington, said he is a huge Redskins fan, maybe too huge. Figuring Gibbs had a Super Bowl ring to spare, he asked to play with one before pulling the okey doke on Gibbs.

Once the cameras turned off, Colbert probably returned the hardware without a fuss. But I like to imagine Gibbs ripping Colbert and telling him to hit the showers before yanking his ring out of the host’s suit pocket.

Watch how Colbert steals Gibbs’ ring along with the coach’s estimation of Colbert’s muscle mass in the clip from the show.

Health Diagnostic Laboratory Inc. Owner/CEO Tonya Mallory’s American Success Story

Posted by Redskins.com on January 28, 2014 – 4:27 pm

Tanya2

From the time she was 13, Health Diagnostic Laboratory (HDL) Inc. owner and CEO Tonya Mallory was a worker.

As a teenager in Doswell, Va., Mallory altered a work permit from a pediatrician so she could get a job in the kitchen of Kings Quarters, a  restaurant attached to Kings Dominion theme park. By the time she was 18, Mallory said she was managing the joint. She worked nights while obtaining undergraduate and masters degrees, averaging about eight hours of sleep a week in grad school.

Today she owns and manages the official health and wellness partner of the Washington Redskins, an innovative health services company employing 850 people and growing by five percent every week.

The Virginia Business Magazine 2013 Virginia Business Person of the Year told her story to Larry Michael, voice of the Washington Redskins, Tuesday afternoon at an event sponsored by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce and the Business Women of Loudoun at the Belmont Country Club. Read more »

Before Vince Lombardi Coached The Redskins And The Packers, He Was Adored At St. Cecilia High School

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 28, 2014 – 10:54 am

Vince Lombardi brought a new fullback to Redskins training camp in 1969. The problem was Iggy McPartland was slight, past his athletic prime and an ordained priest.

McPartland’s visit to training camp was detailed in “The Gospel of St. Vince,” a tremendous recollection of the Hall-of-Fame coach through the perspective of the now elderly men and women he coached on the football and basketball teams of St. Cecilia High School in Englewood, N.J.

Lombardi loved to be in the company of former Saints. He cried when Iggy McPartland was ordained a priest, and when Father McPartland visited him at Washington Redskins camp a year before the coach’s death, Lombardi introduced him as “my fullback.” After one Washington assistant looked the smallish priest up and down and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me?” Lombardi shot back, “And he was a good one, too.”

Joe Theismann Relives Postseason Glories And Explains SI Cover

(AP)

The second-to-last game of the 1982 season will always be the most memorable of Joe Theismann’s career.

Theismann told the  “The Sports Fix” on ESPN 980 Monday that beating Dallas in the NFC Championship game was more exciting than taking the field in Super Bowl XVII.

“People ask me what the most memorable game was of my career, and I talk about the NFC championship game against the Dallas Cowboys in our stadium with our fans,” Theismann told Kevin Sheehan and Thom Loverro.

“Everybody was pounding away at those aluminum seats, and the ground was shaking beneath your feet. If that doesn’t stir your emotions, I don’t know what does.” Read more »

Alfred Morris Wasn’t That Tired After All

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 27, 2014 – 1:22 pm

(AP)

It might have been jet lag or just a layoff from football activities, but Alfred Morris was tired.

When Morris was mic’d up for Pro Bowl practice In Hawaii, he said he felt like he hadn’t moved around in forever.

 

The coaches might have slept on Morris in the Pro Bowl draft, but the Redskins running back shook off the rust to lead the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl  in receiving yardage with 69 yards on four catches. Brian Orakpo had two tackles in the game, and Trent Williams saw extensive playing time at both tackle spots.

Watch Morris practice with Team Sanders, pal around with Andrew Luck and greet the fans in Hawaii in the video below.
