The Redskins-Cowboys rivalry has some one-sided history in the Jeffcoat family, but, on Sunday, the Dallas-dominated household will begin to be challenged.

After playing at linebacker and recording his first professional sack for the Redskins Saturday night, Jackson Jeffcoat will finish the season playing against the Cowboys, his father Jim Jeffcoat’s former team.

“I grew up on the other side, so I know how big [this game] is for them,” said Jackson. “Being over here, I know how big it is for us as well. It’s definitely a big game and it’s very exciting. I’m excited to be able to play with the Redskins and this rivalry.”

It’s been equally exciting for Jim to see his son compete in the NFL and watch a second generation of family compete in the NFC East.

“He’s getting the opportunity and he’s working to take advantage of it,” Jim said. “I thought if he got the opportunity that he would be successful.”

In the midst of college bowl season, The Redskins Blog will be highlighting the games that current Redskins players will likely be monitoring.

David Amerson will be paying attention to:

St. Petersburg Bowl — NC State vs. UCF — December 26, St. Petersburg, Fl.

Amerson played three years with the Wolfpack (2010-12) and had a breakout freshman year, acquiring 50 tackles.

It set up his standout sophomore year, where he set an ACC and NC State single-season record with 13 interceptions, second-most in FBS history.

His efforts on defense also earned him the Jack Tatum Award, given to the nation’s top defensive back.

The cornerback was part of two bowl victories in his freshman and sophomore seasons.

The Redskins drafted him in the second round during the 2013 NFL Draft. His first professional interception was returned for a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders in Week 4 of that season.

Steve Beauharnais will be paying attention to:

Quick Lane Bowl — Rutgers vs. North Carolina — December 26, Detroit, Mich.

As a true freshman, Beauharnais played in all 13 games for Rutgers, starting the final three games at linebacker recording 36 tackles and five sacks. He started at middle linebacker for the next three years and finished his senior season with the third-most tackles on the team.

He was named captain by his teammates in 2012 and was a semifinalist for the Butkus award, given to the nation’s best linebacker.

The Scarlet Knights went 1-1 with Beauharnais in bowl games, winning the Pinstripe Bowl against Iowa State in 2011 before losing to Virginia Tech in the Russell Athletic Bowl.

The New England Patriots drafted the linebacker in 2013 in the seventh round but was used infrequently. After a series of cuts and signings, Beauharnais has found a steady home with the Redskins.

Check back throughout the next few weeks for more bowl games and player history.

Frank Kearse Wanted To Be The Next Frank Thomas Before Football Reality

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 26, 2014 – 11:37 am

Frank Kearse was like many 90’s babies.

Growing up in Savannah, Ga., Kearse, albeit much smaller than his current billed weight, was a baseball player with visions of being the next Frank Thomas.

The Big Hurt as he was known, played the majority of his career with the Chicago White Sox, but his heyday was between 1993-97, when was named an All Star each season and was named American League MVP in back-to-back seasons in 1993 and 1994.

Earlier this week, ESPN’s John Keim caught up with Kearse where the veteran explained that he wanted to be a baseball player long-term, but a black eye derailed that dream.

In return, it was the start of a budding football career.

“To tell you the truth, I wanted to be a football player. Wait, I take that back. I wanted to be the next Frank Thomas. I swear I thought I was going to be him, being on first base eating sunflower seeds. Then a baseball hit me in the face and I had a black eye for a month, so I needed to find a sport with a facemask. I was about 9. I took a year out from baseball and tried out for football when I was 11 and I freaking quit. I was like ‘what are they running around for?’ I had to get in shape. The next year I came out and I was in way better shape. In football you have to be in shape, and when I first started out I was nowhere near football shape.”

Kearse also told Keim that someday, when the time comes to hang up the helmet for good, he wants to remain in the game of football and coach high schoolers.

“I want to start out coaching at my hometown high school in Savannah, and then after that move up,” he explained.

If that startup become reality, then Kearse will be the second Redskin to coach there.

Former Redskins wide receiver Charlie Brown coached Kearse at Savannah (Ga.) High School, and remains the coach there today.

VIDEO: Alfred Morris Laughing While Getting Tackled…Really

I want that! I want that, I need that! Put it on my back!

While the Redskins’ sights are completely on the Cowboys and this weekend’s season finale, the crew over at NFL Films gave us the above video from the Eagles game that shows what running back Alfred Morris is like when he’s barreling over the competition.

His kindness and light-hearted personality off the gridiron is well documented, but apparently that spreads over to gamedays as well, as you can hear him laughing while getting gang-tackled.

Yes, with about six grown men putting every ounce of might into taking him down, Morris is chuckling.

Anyway, check out the video and let us know what you think.
