Top Plays Of 2013: Part Two

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 18, 2014 – 3:27 pm



Even throughout a losing season, certain moments made you stand up and shout. Special plays etch themselves into our memories, where they lie dormant until a trigger brings them to the surface. Redskins TV has produced a series looking back at the top plays of 2013. Which will you remember?

Part two features:

-Aldrick Robinson running behind the Bears (and Chris Cooley’s head explodes).

-Brian Orakpo scoring off a Reed Doughty deflection against Chicago.

-Roy Helu Jr. notching a hat trick to defeat Da Bears.

-DeAngelo Hall picking off Peyton Manning twice in Denver.

When The Combine Is Not An Option

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 18, 2014 – 2:49 pm


For 335 prospective draftees, the NFL Scouting Combine is an opportunity to be seen, measured and heard.

The young men invited to Indianapolis will wrap themselves in form-fitting spandex, detail their injury history dating back to schoolyard scars and field intimate questions about their personal lives all in an attempt to boost their stock with NFL coaches, scouts and general managers.

The overspill of dreamers not invited to bench press reps of 225 pounds while a strength coach barks coffee-breath at their faces have another avenue to get noticed.

In 2012, the league launched the NFL Regional/Super Regional Combines.

Mark Schlereth Responds To Wells Report With The Redskins Locker Room Code

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 18, 2014 – 1:27 pm



Two events in the past two weeks made America’s armchair sociologists dissect the ecosystems in NFL locker rooms, the offices of alpha males paid to play a sport built on confrontation.

Missouri linebacker Michael Sam announced he is a proud, gay NFL prospect, prompting introspection into how he would be received by teammates at the next level, and attorney Ted Wells released his report on misconduct in Miami that created a “pattern of harassment” against Jonathan Martin and others.

ESPN NFL analyst Mark Schlereth, who won three Super Bowls with the Redskins and the Denver Broncos, wrote a column arguing the code of conduct in NFL locker rooms, at least the one he learned in Washington, has higher standards than the culture portrayed in the Wells report.

On fourth-and-goal with a District 16-4A title on the line, Jack Welch bet on Robert Griffin III’s legs.

The coach of Copperas Cove High School told Jason Jordan of USA Today  his favorite memory of the Redskins quarterback in high school was a clutch 12-yard touchdown run that tied a game against Waco High School at the end of the fourth quarter.

“Common sense would tell you to pass the football or try to get outside, but they didn’t have an inside linebacker so we called a quarterback draw,” Welch told Jordan. “I was nervous because that’s 12 yards, ya know. Well, Robert faked the pass really good and just took off in one of the most beautiful runs I’ve ever seen right up the middle. I mean he zig-zagged and everything and got to the end zone. We tied it up on that play. He had a lot of great runs and a lot of great passes, but that was the most memorable to me.”
