In a sign of just how cold it’s been this winter, the Las Vegas area actually got snow the other day.

Yes, in the desert where the average high is 63 degrees in February, they actually had a few flakes come down.

While it wasn’t anything major, it was enough to send television crews out to talk to residents.

And the very first person Fox 5 interviewed was wearing a Redskins beanie. Check out the complete video here.

Also, since we’re on the topic of winter weather, the Washington, D.C., area got some snow as well this morning.

The Hangman is ready to share some wisdom with the younger generations.

On Monday, March 23 from 9:45 a.m.-11 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m., Pro Football Hall Of Famer Chris Hanburger will talk to students as part of the the Heart of a Hall of Famer character series.

The virtual series provides students the opportunity to interact and learn first-hand from legendary Gold Jackets on what it takes beyond athletic ability to achieve success on and off the football field.

A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, the most in Redskins’ history, Hanburger spent 14 years as a Redskin. He recorded 19 career interceptions and had three fumbles returned for touchdowns.

To get an idea of what this series is like, here’s video from Art Monk’s talk last November:

Callahan Excited To Uphold Tradition Of Bugel And ‘The Hogs’

New Redskins offensive line coach Bill Callahan knows all about the vaunted Hogs of the 1980s, which means he’s aware of the tradition he’s recently inherited.

“Having coached down in Philadelphia in the mid-90s, I certainly understand the NFC East division rivalries that exist, and of course the traditions here, their influence – going back to Coach Allen, Coach Gibbs,” Callahan told Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, on “Redskins Nation.” “I used to come out to Carlisle [Penn.] in the mid-80s and watch Joe Bugel coach The Hogs. Yeah, it was great. What a great experience that was. Just watching those linemen develop. Now to be here, try to uphold that tradition. I’m really honored by that.”

Bugel spent two stints with the Redskins in his career, the first developing an offensive line that helped lead the team to two Super Bowls. Back then, the line consisted of Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby, Mark May, Jeff Bostic and George Starke, among a few others.

Nowadays, Callahan agrees it’s not as easy to keep a core group of players together for a prolonged period of time.

“With free agency and the difficulty to hold on to your top players: that’s unique,” Callahan said. “Of course everybody needs to be paid these days. So, it’s hard to keep those five together, especially the five they had here. They were tremendous.”

Newspaper Clip From 1941 Shows How Redskins Players Ate While Training

Back in 1941, the Redskins apparently ate a lot of food during Training Camp.

In this archived San Jose Evening News article, made aware to us by Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks), then general manager Jack Espey subscribed to the theory that a “well-fed player makes a good one.”

So when the Redskins traveled to San Diego for three weeks of Training Camp, as they did from 1941-44, the city’s surrounding restaurants and grocery stores, according to the article, “rubbed their hands in glee.”

Espey believed his team, specifically the linemen, should eat as much as they wanted, which, as described in great detail, meant fueling for breakfast with “nine gallons of fruit juice, 12 quarts of cream, two crates of peaches, 15 pounds of sausage, one case of eggs, five gallons of coffee and 50 large rolls.”

Dinner, as you can imagine was the biggest meal during one late August night, which saw the 45-man roster consume 80 pounds of prime ribs of beef and 80 pounds of potatoes.

The newspaper described it as a “first-class victual stowing.”

Along with some eating habits, language has also changed drastically over the last 70 years.

Redskins’ 1983 Team Voted Best To Never Win A Super Bowl

As we mentioned on Monday, the “Talk Of Fame Sports Network” put out a poll recently asking which NFL team was the best to have never won a Super Bowl.

Redskins fans should be happy with the result.

Beating out the nearly undefeated 2007 Patriots — along with the 1990 Bills and 1969 Vikings — the 1983 Redskins, who went 14-2 during the regular season, blew away the competition, earning 59 percent of the vote, ahead of the Patriots at 23 percent.

That specific Redskins team was an offensive juggernaut. They were the first to score more than 500 points in the regular-season under legendary quarterback Joe Theismann, who earned MVP honors, and Pro Football Hall of Fame running back John Riggins turned in a career year rushing for 1,347 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Way to show your support!

You know you’ve really given it your all in the gym when you’re dripping sweat.

That’s exactly what Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher did yesterday, as the 6-foot-6, 299-pound Grambling State product shot a quick Instagram video that shows without a doubt he’s putting in work.

He could have stopped minutes before, but his motivation was pretty clear.

“I can’t stop working because I know a offensive lineman out there somewhere working too..#grindneverstop,” Hatcher captioned the photo.

And after such a great workout, his last of the night, Hatcher made sure to refuel his body with healthy foods.

My lil snack after my last workout of the night well at least i think it is.. cucumber, avocado and pico de gallo.

While there was the occasional moments of doubt, Silas Redd knew exactly what he wanted to do when his college career ended — keep playing the game that he loves so much.

But with a injury sidelining him for the second half of his senior season at USC,  he understood that he needed to put in extra work before the next NFL season started if his phone was going to ring with a team on the other end.

As told to USCTrojans.com as part of their “Retro Diary” series, Redd only took a few days off at the end of the college season, instead opting to get his injuries healed up quickly and then go straight into NFL Combine training.

From early January to late February, Redd was in Florida, running through drills that would best prepare him for the combine.

It certainly isn’t rare to see several people running inside the Redskins’ indoor training facility, but on Tuesday, the hustling was for a tremendous cause.

One hundred members each from the Women of Washington Redskins (WOW) and Redskins Salute – joining forces for the first time – came to Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va., and, under the leadership of current and former Redskins players and cheerleaders, assembled hundreds of care packages for U.S. troops stationed overseas.

The Care Package Assembly Night, also hosted by Papa John’s and Coca-Cola, was a huge success.

“It’s really cool,” said Redskins fullback Darrel Young, whose brother serves in the military. “It lets them know that they’re appreciated for everything that they do. Just sending them anything that you can send, they’re always appreciative, because they can’t always get the goods that they like. So you just like to send anything over there to show you care.”

Also taking part Tuesday were safety Akeem Davis, Redskins alums Dexter Manley and Ravin Caldwell, defensive coordinator Joe Barry, Redskins Cheerleader Ambassadors, Felicia and Angela, and Jacqueline Griffin, the mother of quarterback Robert Griffin III and a retired Army sergeant.

Sports Illustrated Vault Finds Rare John Riggins Photo

Twitter, for all of its negativity, can be an amazing place to find random things.

Take yesterday, for instance, when the Sports Illustrated Vault Twitter account asked for photo requests from fans to challenge their digital archive digging team.

On the surface, the requests were pretty out there, like this one posted by Hugh Perry.

Good luck with that one, right? Well, apparently, anything is possible, and that possibility led to finding legendary running back John Riggins sitting in his other natural environment, fishing line in hand, on a boat, with a not-quite-so-big gold fish attached.

Close enough.

If you’ve followed Riggins recently, you know he’s an avid outdoorsman and had his own show, “Riggo on the Range,” on the Sportsman Channel. He told me in December that he’s also still deer hunting.

The gold fish isn’t necessarily the kind of thrill Hugh Murray was looking for. But, considering how great this shot is, I don’t think he seemed to mind.

Joe Theismann’s Letter To Younger Self

Founded by New York Yankees legendary shortstop last year, PlayersTribune.com gives current and former professional athletes the chance to tell unfiltered stories.

On Tuesday, former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann was candid about his career, and what went through his mind sometimes, in an article entitled “Letter To My Younger Self.”

This letter, which goes in chronological order starting with his days as a sensational college player, provides an entirely new narrative about Theismann where he writes about advice he would have given to himself had he known more.

Theismann starts with when he was a Heisman finalist after his junior year and then fast forwards to the day he heeded the advice of the school’s PR Director to change his last name.

Before your senior year, Notre Dame’s PR director Roger Valdiserri convinced you to change the pronunciation of your last name so that it rhymes with Heisman. From this experience you’ll learn a couple of things. Firstly, voters aren’t interested in gimmicks. Secondly, sometimes nicknames have a way of sticking. Say goodbye to Joe ‘Theesmann.’

After his Notre Dame career finished, Theismann was drafted by both the Miami Dolphins and the Minnesota Twins.

But, without an agent, contract talks would stall with the Dolphins and he’d instead join the Toronto Argonauts.
