It was busy on the Washington, D.C., Convention Center floor this past weekend as thousands of people explored the NBC4 Health and Fitness Expo.

The Redskins hosted a booth where kids could pose for photos and run football drills while learning about the team’s programs.

Redskins executive chef Jon Mathieson and team nutritionist Rob Skinner also hosted a cooking demonstration for fans, preparing a meal players would typically receive in cafeteria at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

Mathieson cooked up a Cobia entrée with broccoli raab, shitake mushrooms and Farrell grains, offering a variety of vegetables, which he joked are sometimes difficult to feed to hungry football players.

“It was a typical dish we’d do at the park for the players and coaches,” Mathieson said. “You want to use some green vegetables, get a great starch, and a nice piece of fish or meat on the lean side.”

Check out more from the day here and watch the video above to see what the experience was like.

I’m not sure if this Redskins winter cap is ideal camouflage for deer hunting, but it certainly is for 21 degree weather.

This fan took a selfie in the woods this morning proudly repping Redskins Nation.

His smile seems to suggest he enjoyed the cold. We’ll just have to see if his gear brings him any luck today.

Former Redskin Earnest Byner Discusses New Book ‘Everybody Fumbles’

Earnest Byner hasn’t let one play define him.

His new book, “Everybody Fumbles,” which was just released in a second edition, discusses his infamy in Cleveland history for the play termed “The Fumble,” and, more importantly, how he learned to shed his internal demons in the NFL.

As a running back for the Browns in the 1988 AFC Championship game, Byner had a chance to score a touchdown and tie the game against the Broncos. As he raced for the goal line, he was stripped of the ball at the two-yard line allowing Denver to recover, ending Cleveland’s dreams of heading to the Super Bowl.

“Having to go through the consistent lashing that I took, regarding that, it just made me want to help people that have made, not even as drastic  a mistake as that was,” Byner told The Redskins Blog.

“In life, we all make these mistakes,” he said. “We all have to deal with learning from the mistakes. We all have to do that. So that initially motivated me into writing. By nature, I’m a teacher. This is another way of teaching but also giving people answers for dealing with different aspects of life.”

The book, which is available for purchase on Amazon and Byner’s website, also details his career, including winning a Super Bowl as a Redskin. His recently started book tour has allowed him to interact with fans and heal old wounds.

“It’s been really good. It’s been a real blessing,” Byner said. “Just being able to shake the hands of people and exchange some love. It’s been really powerful.”

Byner said it was his move to Washington that helped him recover and forgive himself the most.

“That play is just part of my legacy,”Byner said. “The things that gave me comfort was the spiritual connection that I got when I came to Washington, through Coach Gibbs, Tim Johnson, Darrell Green…When I got that spiritual connection I was able to forgive myself for that but still be able to use that energy to move forward.”

The biggest factor was inside the locker room. Byner described there being a “level of accountability” that allowed for an honesty and interconnectedness between players, creating a foundation to bond on and off the field.

“It was a lot of grown men that really took to that mentality,” he said. “It was really powerful to be there to go through that growing process.”

Byner will be coming to the D.C. metro area on January 18 for a book signing at Great Moments retail store located in the Westview Promenade in Frederick, Md.

Darrell Green is taking his talents to the coaching scene, as the legendary Redskin tweeted out Tuesday morning that he’s going to be coaching the cornerbacks in the fourth annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

It shouldn’t take too long to get those legs warmed up, Darrell.

The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl is one of the top post-season all-star games for any draft-eligible college players.

As the NFLPA’s website explains, the week-long schedule provides participants with a first-class professional experience while introducing them to the business of the National Football League.

And who better to learn from then Green, a player who gave it his all every single time he stepped on the field for 20 years.

Catch Green coaching up the young guys this Saturday at 1 p.m. on ESPN2.

Also, just for fun, here’s a photo of Green during his days at Texas A&I University:

Having a brother play in the National Championship Game certainly has its perks.

For Redskins offensive lineman Tevita Stevens that meant traveling to Arlington, Texas to see his brother Hamani, an offensive lineman for the Oregon Ducks, compete at AT&T Stadium against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Stevens family was not able to celebrate afterward like they did two weeks ago at the Rose Bowl, as Oregon lost 42-20.

Still, as Stevens wrote in his caption, the bowl experience gave the entire family “Golden Tickets” to share in the whirlwind bowl season.

Now, it’s back to reality, “Charlie.”

Redskins Fan With RFK Stadium Seat Getting Alums To Sign Off

A little piece of history made its way to Redskins Park during the Inova Blood Drive on Saturday morning.

Shady Saliba, 38, showed up ready to donate blood to the worthy cause, but brought a little something extra with him — an original seat from RFK Stadium that he ripped out following the Redskins’ final game at the historic stadium.

An attendee at the Redskins’ 37-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Dec. 22, 1996, Saliba was one of hundreds of fans that took the field after the game.

Instead of just pulling some grass from the field, he went back into the stands.

“We all ran onto the field after the game and people were trying to pull seats,” he said. “I was one of the lucky guys to grab a seat. Since then, my goal was to get a lot of autographs from the Hall of Famers, Super Bowl winners and legends that played at RFK.”

Among the many Redskins greats that have signed the seat, Saliba said he’s most proud of the signatures from Joe Theismann, Rick “Doc” Walker, Pat Fischer, Chris Hanburger and Dexter Manley.

Throughout the blood drive, Dexter Manley, Gary Clark, Ken Harvey and Ricky Ervins (pictured above, signing the seat) all appeared and left their signatures on the seat.

“Dexter Manley took up most of it,” Saliba admitted.

A lifelong Redskins fan, Saliba said he was “born into the Redskins family” and now his own niece and nephew have joined in as well.

When asked about his favorite memory, that cold December day is one he’ll never forget.

“It was emotional just because it was against the Cowboys,” he said. “We had a lot of people just running onto the field, running up and down the 50 yard line, I just sat there and looked up and just enjoyed it.”

Redskins React To Oregon-Ohio State National Championship Game

Like millions of other Americans Monday evening, many Washington Redskins were glued to their televisions to watch the Oregon Ducks take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in the National Championship Game.

Going into the game, a lot of the talk was about Oregon’s firepower vs. Ohio State’s resiliency, as the Ducks have the quickest offense while the Buckeyes overcame an injury to their expected starter before the season even began, and then lost a Heisman hopeful (and their second stringer) late in the season.

Regardless, Ohio State was able to knock off Oregon relatively easy, 42-20.

If you missed any of the action the Redskins have you covered:

On a different note, proud Virginia Tech alum DeAngelo Hall may be prescribing to the transitive property that his Hokies are the best team in the country because they’re the only team in the country that can say they beat Ohio State this year.
