Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 3, 2013 – 2:17 pm


This week’s Social Media Spotlight is presented by social media intern Jared Ross. 

As usual, we check in from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to bring you this week’s Social Media Spotlight. If you missed last week’s Spotlight, make sure to check it out to see kicker Kai Forbath’s photo of Redskins Park from his airplane window, how wide receiver Pierre Garcon anxiously awaits game day, quarterback Robert Griffin III’s return to the football field, and more.

In this week’s Social Media Spotlight, players start to settle back into football mode as they enter their third week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

In these past two weeks of OTAs, not only did player’s return to the football field, some returned from injury to join in for a few practice drills.

And now, we present this week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight. In this week’s edition, we review nose tackle Chris Baker’s grand predictions for the Redskins in 2013, safety Reed Doughty’s trip to Dover International Speedway, defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s poetry, kicker Kai Forbath’s visit to a USA soccer match, and a photo from defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins‘ last night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Possible RG3, Vick Duel Headlines Opener

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 18, 2013 – 8:08 pm

Michael Vick, Robert Griffin III

Mark your calendars Redskins Nation its official, the 2012 NFC East champions will open the 2013 slate against NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football at FedExField. The opener is one of five primetime affairs for the Burgundy and Gold.

And yes its the same Eagles who the Redskins swept during the 2012 campaign including a 31-6 victory at FedExField that jump started the Redskins epic run to the postseason.

With plenty of storylines to dig into, it only seems fitting to do a way too early preview of a game that is still months away.

Here are some topics to follow that night:

What Will Make Us A Playoff Team in 2013?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 10, 2013 – 11:14 am

Alfred Morris, Robert Griffin III

By now you know all about the 2012 campaign where the Burgundy and Gold secured their first division title since the turn of the century.

While the season that was will go down as one of the most exciting  in franchise history thanks in large part to the instant injection of highlight reel moments by rookie record-breakers Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, the team as a whole stepped up their “game” after the bye week and made those that told them it was time to consider the season a lost cause bite their tongues.

With the 2013 season fast approaching (OTAs start next week!) its time to look forward to what the campaign can bring to the DMV.

As I was browsing the Internet this morning I came across an article by Yahoo! Sports that states what they believe will be key to the Redskins making back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since they made it three straight years from 1990-1992. (Also, in the second year—the Redskins made the playoffs they won Super Bowl XXVI. Just sayin’.)

So lets take a look at what they believe will help the franchise make the 2013 playoffs.

Carriker’s Exciting Night Of Wrestling

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 2, 2013 – 1:16 pm

Adam Carriker,  Tony Romo

Adam Carriker is one of the strongest players in the league as the gargantuan of a man has been spotted benching as much as 500 pounds.

While I am no weightlifting expert by any stretch of the imagination, I think its safe to assume that a number as massive as that is rarely reached.

While Carriker’s job is to bully over helpless opponents and crush opposing gunslingers, he has taken up a passion for wrestling that has been well documented through the years.

As the new league year kicked off a few weeks ago with the start of free agency, teams are gearing up for the chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February in New Jersey.

In the wrestling world, WWE’s Wrestlemania is equivalent to the Super Bowl and the event will take place in New Jersey this weekend. With WWE making one last pit stop in our Nation’s Capital before the big event, there was no way Carriker wasn’t going to miss a second of the action.

Redskins Have New Linebacker On Tapp

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 2, 2013 – 11:43 am

Darryl Tapp

Last week, the Washington Redskins signed former Philadelphia Eagle and Seattle Seahawk Darryl Tapp. During his seven years in the National Football League, Tapp has dug his hand deep in the dirt in the three-point stance on the line.

However, with the Burgundy and Gold Tapp will convert to linebacker and provide quality depth for one of the best linebacking units in the league that includes Pro Bowlers London Fletcher, Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo. Middle linebacker Perry Riley was top-15 in tackles in his first year as a full-time starter and Rob Jackson burst onto the scene after setting career-highs across the board including a key interception in the team’s Week 17 NFC East clinching victory against the Dallas Cowboys.

While he has spent the past three years with one of the Redskins biggest foes, Tapp is ready to play for the team he grew up rooting for.

Golston ‘Excited’ To Return To Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 13, 2013 – 2:19 pm

Kedric Golston

On Wednesday, the Redskins re-signed one of their core players of the last seven years, veteran defensive end Kedric Golston.

The 2006 sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia appeared in all 16 games for the 2012 NFC East champions, providing quality depth behind starters Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins, and Adam Carriker.

After signing his contract, Golston took to Twitter (@Golston64) to thank the fans and celebrate his return to the Burgundy and Gold: Read more »

Will You Be My [Belated] Valentine?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on February 15, 2013 – 5:17 pm


Mother Nature graces the DMV with brisk winter breezes during the month of February, causing many to be slightly on the grouchy side at times as they wait for the flowers to bloom and for family beach vacation season to kick into gear.

Today, however, spirits among the masses seems to be a little more cheery than a usual day during the shortest month of the year. There’s been an increase in heart-shaped objects, bouquets of flowers, and people ignoring their beach-bod diets in favor of adding some chocolate to their routines.

It’s almost like there’s a feeling of love in the air.

Well folks that’s because today is Valentine’s Day, the annual day of love!

Redskins Nation has a lot to love during this holiday as we are currently under blue skies, Punxsutawney Phil ( for those of you who don’t know, Phil is the famous groundhog of Groundhog Day) saw his shadow forecasting spring is on its way, and knowing that their favorite football team shocked the league this season claiming the NFC East title may be the sweetest treat of all!

The Redskins themselves have caught the love bug and have been spending their day with loved ones.

Find out what some of the players have been doing after being struck with Cupid’s arrow here:

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on February 11, 2013 – 5:29 pm


The Super Bowl has come and gone which means it’s time to turn our attention to April’s NFL Draft. So join us as we begin to focus on certain team needs and start to analyze the prospects preparing to make the jump from college to the pros. The next few months should be a fun ride.

This year’s draft is as important as ever for the Redskins to build on this year’s success. It’s important to add key pieces so that the team can continue to make positive strides without taking any steps backwards.

There are many question marks that the team will need to address.

Who will the Redskins select? Will they address the needs in the secondary? What’s the status of linebacker London Fletcher? Will Robert Griffin III be ready for training camp? These are all questions that will slowly, but surely, be answered over the course of the next few months.

And if you all are wondering what moves are brewing at Redskins Park or if there is a magical potion being concocted to help address  the void left by football, sorry. We have no secret ingredient to remedy the heartache that the offseason brings.

Coaches are studying game film as the process of preparing the playbooks for next year starts. The scouts are watching tape of college players as they start to finalize their draft and free agent boards. And decisions are being made as the coaches decide which players will return before the free agency period begins on March 12.

If you are coming to us for insider info, we don’t have any top secret information to divulge just yet, but what I can tell you is that we are feeling the same effects as you, a sense of helplessness that is the void left by football.

Problem solved if games were year around. Unfortunately, the players association probably would never agree to that deal. But, I digress.

We’re bringing you yet another Social Media Weekly Spotlight, including a message from LB London Fletcher for Dallas fans! You’ll like what the savvy vet had to say.

PHOTO: Carriker Dressed As Goldberg?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 11, 2012 – 9:21 am

(Hint: this is not the photo mentioned in the headline. Read on for more…)

Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker is a man of his word.

He has recently struck up a friendship with one of his idols, wrestling legend Goldberg, and the two placed a friendly bet with each other about last Sunday’s game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Washington Redskins.

Goldberg — himself a former defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons — agreed to wear a Redskins jersey if Washington won, while Carriker — who co-hosts a wrestling/football radio show, 4th & Pain — agreed to dress up like Goldberg if Atlanta won.

Well, the Falcons ended up winning 24-17 to move to 5-0, and we’ll let Carriker tell you his philosophy:


So, Carriker took to the Redskins locker room — oiled up and speedo and all — and took the following photo (warning: this isn’t for the faint of heart and definitely not for you currently eating your breakfast:)
