Banks Vs. Morgan: Slam Dunk Contest

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 16, 2012 – 4:32 pm

It’s scary to think that there are athletes talented enough to go pro at more than one sport in their careers.

Notre Dame wide receiver Jeff Samardzija had top-10 NFL draft talent, but possessed a 99 MPH fastball, which led him to Major League Baseball.  Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden pitched for four seasons in the minor leagues before going back to play college football.  Tony Romo fancies himself a golfer, but…I’ll leave that one alone.

Classic success stories include Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson, who had a chance to be teammates–had Sanders signed with the Kansas City Royals as the sixth-round pick in 1985.  Sanders remains the only athletes to ever hit a professional homerun and score a professional touchdown in the same week.

And then there are Redskins receivers Brandon Banks and Joshua Morgan, who are really good at…football.  Maybe not only football, but certainly not basketball; at least not at today’s Hometown Huddle Play 60 event. Read more »

More than 120 students from nearby Sterling Middle School got a chance hang out with their favorite Washington Redskins players and get in a good workout Tuesday.

The Redskins played host to an NFL Play 60 Mini-Combine at their Ashburn, Va., facility, and took advantage of their new indoor training facility by taking things inside as rains and heavy winds moved over the area.

The event was a team effort between the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Commonwealth Orthopaedics, DePuy Mitek, Inc. and Safe Kids Worldwide.

The students were being trained with the help of nine Redskins players who were happy to participate on their day off Tuesday, including:

Seven Redskins On All-NFC East Team

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 12, 2012 – 10:26 am

The Washington Redskins had seven representatives (at eight positions) in the first edition of ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s All-NFC East Team.

For those of you unfamiliar, the ESPN.com All-NFC East team is Graziano’s running list of the best players at each position in the division. This week’s list will be the only time that it is based on the performances of a single week (Week 1).

Which Redskins made the cut to start off the 2012 season? Here’s the list:

Training Camp Video: QBs and WRs

Posted by Andrew Walker on July 28, 2012 – 6:48 pm


One player who certainly stood out on offense during today’s training camp practice was wide receiver Brandon Banks.

While practicing against the defense, Banks made several catches — many of which were in heavy traffic — and showed his elite speed and quickness.

Redskins’ Summer Camps Approaching

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 25, 2012 – 9:57 am

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a professional football player is the ability to go into a community and touch the lives of area children.

At least four current Redskins players will have that opportunity here in the coming weeks through their personal youth camps.

Redskins Hoops Action: Just The Dunks

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 6, 2012 – 11:33 am

Last Friday was the celebrity charity basketball game that pitted the Redskins against their geographical Baltimore Ravens rivals.  What amazed most about the game is how much raw athleticism the players had to perform ably in two sports.

I wouldn’t bet on them in a high-stakes ping pong tournament, but there was a comfort level on the court that led to good-natured showboating and high-flying slam dunks.

The pictures from the event were posted on Golden Era Entertainment’s Facebook page mid-week, but with jersey-mania, it was worth waiting until Friday.

Enjoy the high-flying Redskins action as we recap all of the Redskins dunks: Read more »

Fastest Redskins Debate, Version 2.012

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 2, 2012 – 5:14 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

During the darkest hours of last offseason’s lockout, Redskins receivers Anthony Armstrong and Brandon Banks livened up the debate with a playful Twitter war of who would be faster in a foot race.

While the race was never consummated (due to concerns of injuries), the merit of each competitor was debated back and forth, 140 characters at a time.  Banks is traditionally thought of as the team’s speedster, but special teams coordinator Danny Smith has clocked Armstrong at a sub-4.2 on kickoff coverage.

Whichever man is faster, we may never know–but other Redskins receivers threw their hats in the ring this afternoon, declaring their shot at the title of ‘The Fastest Redskin.’

Here’s a Twitter recap between Brandon Banks (@SpeedyBanks16), Niles Paul (@Niles_Paul) and Terrence Austin (@Terrence_Austin), with their respective merits: Read more »

Eight Redskins Named All-Division Team

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 5, 2012 – 12:22 pm

As the 2011 regular season draws to a close, we once again turn to ESPN NFC-East blogger Dan Graziano for a look at which Redskins are the best at their position in the division.

While I have lobbied for certain players throughout the season, I do defer to Graziano for a more global perspective on the division.  I don’t have to agree, but it’s not my list.

After reaching a high-water mark of eight Redskins on the bye week edition of this list, the Redskins have sunken to as low as five in some weeks, and six in most others.  However, through sustained effort and great individual performance, the Redskins have again risen to eight honorees on the final list of the season.

This was the most by any team in the NFC East, as the Cowboys had seven, the Giants had six, and the Eagles had six of the 27 honors.

These is the complete list of Redskins on the ESPN All-NFC East team: Read more »

Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 1, 2012 – 3:27 pm

AP Image

Following a long touchdown pass to Roy Helu–the first receiving score of his career–the Redskins were right back in the game.  However, if they want to stay in it for the fourth quarter, they have to eliminate the big 15-yard penalties that are consistently pushing them backward.  So far, they have three of them on the afternoon.

The first was a penalty on Santana Moss for taking his helmet off after a play. He was understandably frustrated, but that’s a long-standing rule–on the field, helmets stay on.

The second penalty was on Donte’ Stallworth on the Roy Helu touchdown catch and run.  It’s unclear what exactly was going on, but Stallworth took a knee in the end zone and was flagged for excessive celebration, going to the ground in the end zone.

The third penalty was for a hit on a defenseless receiver, on the defense.

You can say what you want about the legitimacy of the rules, the interpretation of said rules, and whether or not the Redskins players violated those rules.  I certainly have my own thoughts on all three facets.  But no amount of angst or debate on the topic will change the fact that the Redskins put themselves in a position to be flagged for three flagrant fouls in a game that they’re losing.

This is a game for pride alone, and this isn’t the type of focused football that’s going to win this afternoon.

On a very positive note, running back Evan Royster is over 100 yards from scrimmage again this week, piling up 73 on the ground and 37 through the air.  It’s hard to project how Royster and Helu will pan out to a 16-game season, but the experience that they’ve gained in their respective rookie campaigns have laid the groundwork for an informed, focused offseason.

Although the Redskins haven’t found their top guy in the passing game today, Grossman has spread the ball around, finding nine different receivers, including Brandon Banks for the time this season.  Receiver Jabar Gaffney was a non-factor in the third quarter and still needs 53 yards to reach 1,000 on the season.

After three quarters in Philadelphia, it’s still in reach for the Burgundy and Gold: Redskins 7, Eagles 13.

The Southpaw Chronicles: Brandon Banks

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 2:19 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After Brandon Banks revealed to the world that he was a lefty with a gadget touchdown pass against the New England Patriots, it piqued my interest in the left-handers on the team.

It turns out that lefties comprise 15 percent of the population, but are a brilliant class of people.  There are many famous lefties, including four of the last six presidents, Joan of Arc, Alexander the Great, and Bart Simpson.

With the help of Redskins.com’s Jessica Monaldo and receiver Anthony Armstrong, I identified the southpaws on the team, and sought to find out what makes them so brilliant.

I began my search with Banks, the man who inspired my mission.

Banks’s world-class speed is well documented, and vision allows him to find creases in the coverage, and accelerate upfield.  Although rarely used, he also has the type of game-changing speed on offense that forces defenses to respect all that he can do.

But according to a Yahoo! Sports contribution by Rebecca Bardelli, Banks also has some of the best hair in the NFL. Read more »
