Kicker Kai Forbath has been placed into a lot of momentous situations this year, and he’s connected on them all.

His third game-winning field goal of the season–against the Eagles Saturday night– also solidified him in the Twitter-sphere.

“That’s what I do this for, moments like that,” Forbath said after the game. “It’s a lot of fun. I score points when I can for the team, but those chances you get to win for them, that’s what really makes it special.”

Here’s to more success against Dallas to finish the season!

Rishaw Johnson is a big man.

The Redskins signed the 6-foot-4, 315-pound guard Tuesday to the active roster to fill the vacancy left by linebacker Trent Murphy, who was placed on season-ending Injured Reserve with a broken right hand.

Johnson started out at the University of Mississippi before transferring to California University of Pennsylvania.

He went undrafted in 2012, but later had brief stints with the Seahawks, Cowboys, Buccaneers, Packers and Chiefs, while spending most of this year on the Giants’ practice squad.

He has three games of NFL experience playing with Kansas City, and could be needed Sunday as the Redskins try to sure up the injured parts of their roster.

Here’s some video from college (hint: look for the long hair on the O-line):

Teammates, Family React To Jackson Jeffcoat’s Sack Dance

Posted by Jake Kring-Schreifels on December 23, 2014 – 4:07 pm

Had to hit a dance for my first NFL sack! #blessed #httr #Redskins

Jackson Jeffcoat Dances After First-Career Sack

As Redskins players hit the film room together for the first time since defeating the Eagles, the defense couldn’t help but notice linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat’s sack celebration dance.

As we noted yesterday, Jeffcoat followed his first -career NFL sack with a windmill dance.

Some teammates were confused, like Ryan Clark…

“We got to watch them in the meeting today and Jeffcoat did an awful dance. I mean it was all the way hot trash. It was just a dance hopefully born out of excitement and not preparation. I told him it was the worst. And then the thing that he was trying to do was like a 2007 move, something he probably learned when he was in high school. It was awful, man. The play was nice. It was a huge play for us in the game that we actually won, and so that play had a lot to do with it.”

“It’s good to see Jeffcoat get a sack,” said head coach Jay Gruden as well. “He’s got to work on his sack dance, but it was good to see him get a sack.”

 After hearing the news — and the jokes — Jeffcoat offered up a defense, or at least an explanation.

“It’s a dance I used to do in middle school” Jeffcoat said. “We used to mess around and do it, a couple guys in my school, so I was like, ‘I’ll bring it back, go ahead and hit it,’ so it was something that I was familiar with. I wasn’t going to do anything but Kerrigan was like ‘Man, hit something! Do something!’ So I got up and did that.”

His moves also drew attention from his family.

“My uncle called me and said ‘What is that? You don’t need to do that again,’” Jeffcoat said. “And my mom and my dad were all like, ‘I see you! Hitting the dance, that was clean!’ and they thought it was cool. So I had both. People said it was cool, some people were like what was that?”

As for this week’s game against Dallas, Jeffcoat says he is pondering a new dance move if he gets the opportunity.

“I guess I’ll have a different dance prepared if I get back there and get a sack,” Jeffcoat said. “That’s the goal, get another sack. I was talking to my dad, so I might do something to make him happy, so we’ll see.”

Be on the lookout for Paul driving the bus around, and, possibly having trouble parking it.

A few years ago, Paul discussed growing up with so many siblings. Watch below:

The Redskins have a speedy wide receiver and returner coming their way.

Colin Lockett joined the practice squad for the team’s final week after he was cut in mid-October from the Bengals.

The wide receiver and kick returner went undrafted from San Diego State, where he had made the early switch to offense after starting his career at cornerback.

In his senior year, he compiled 52 catches, 736 yards and five touchdowns, but his greatest threat was as a kick returner.

In his three seasons returning, he amassed a 24.1-yard average with three scores, becoming the Aztecs’ all-time leader in kickoff return yardage.

Fun fact: In his sophomore season — his best statistically — Lockett caught passes from quarterback Ryan Lindley, who recently started for the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday.

Take a look at Lockett’s highlight videos from college, especially his returns.

Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan has had quite the year to say the least.

Seriously.

Now would be a good time to use the fire emoji, because these customized Foamposites featuring burgundy, gold and Sean Taylor are pretty hot.

This isn’t the first time a pair of Nikes have been tinkered with to showcase Redskins fandom from literally head to toe, either, as The Redskins Blog has shown before.

Earlier this month, we showed you the Foamposites (seen below) that Anthony Webb posted in the Facebook fan group Redskins Die Hard Members.

In November, The Redskins Blog spoke with Alan Grabowski — a lifelong fan who resides in Connecticut — about a pair of Nike Air Max 95s he changed up to match all of his Redskins gear.
