When it came to the Redskins, Jackson was asked to describe the 2014 season in just five words — “Good, bad, frustrating, humbling and encouraging.”

As for the encouragement portion of his response, Jackson said they’ve got a new year to start off with and that having an entire offseason to get to work will be beneficial.

If you happened to be watching the Capitals and Blackhawks playing in the Winter Classic on Thursday, you might have heard a piece of Redskins –and sports — history.

As the sun’s glint on the outdoor ice caused some atypical glare issues, some hockey players pasted on eye-black, prompting a story about the sun-blocking adhesive’s origins.

It prompted Doc Emrick to give us this nugget.

The first known athlete to use eye-black was Andy Farkas, a fullback for the Washington Redskins, who played in the NFL from 1938-1945.

He was pictured wearing eye-black as far back as 1942, using burnt cork instead of the more contemporary grease or often-used black stickers.

In 1939, Farkas’ second year with the Redskins, he led the NFL in rushing attempts (139), receiving average (27.3 yards per catch), scoring (11 touchdowns), and was second in rushing yardage (547) and made the All-Pro team that year.

According to this study, using the grease stick helps with the glare, while the stickers provide no relief.

Now you know.

Offensive lineman Tevita Stevens was in Pasadena, Calif. on Thursday to cheer on his younger brother Hamani in the Rose Bowl.

It ended up being a very happy family affair after Oregon defeated Florida State to advance to the National Championship.

Hamani plays on the Ducks’ offensive line, protecting Marcus Mariota and Oregon’s up-tempo offense.

They’ll take on Ohio State on January 12.

Back in November, the Stevens family got together when Tevita’s alma mater, Utah, took on Oregon.

The family, as it makes clear in the photos, always wear their team colors proudly.
