By now, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of the “Super Bowl Five,” a group of five gentlemen that form an extremely rare breed of football fan:

They’ve been to every single Super Bowl game.

Including today’s big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., these five gentlemen — , , H

Now that’s what I call one impressive sports feat.

Jon Gruden: ‘How Can I Not Love The Redskins?’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 16, 2014 – 11:15 am


Despite being an analyst for ESPN’s Monday Night Football and hosting his own television show each spring with NFL hopefuls, each telecasted to millions, it would have been understandable if Jon Gruden was nervous when he spoke to those in attendance at the 25th annual Burgundy and Gold Banquet. Joe Gibbs, three-time Super Bowl winner and founder and chairman of Youth For Tomorrow, accepted his Lifetime Achievement award just moments before he took center stage.

Big shoes to fill, right?

But he had no choke-ups. With former colleagues sitting just feet from the podium and his brother Jay, head coach of the Washington Redskins, looking on the former NFL coach was at ease.

And he let everyone know that he’s loves the burgundy and gold.

Walk With Jay Gruden Through His First Day At Redskins Park

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 10, 2014 – 12:35 pm


“You ready?”

“I’m ready I guess.”

Jay Gruden was self-deprecating already.

The previous offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals stood in Daniel Snyder’s corner office at Redskins Park and answered the owner’s question. Three flat-screen televisions flashed football highlights.

Joey and Jack Gruden, the next line of a football family, shook hands with Snyder. J.J. Gruden was away at college. The boys wore ties to match their father, who chose a navy pinstriped suit, oxblood shoes and a white oxford shirt. His burgundy tie was adorned with white dots.

Three hours earlier he wore a gray Redskins sweatshirt and jeans to his first lunch at the facility’s dining hall, where they served chowder. When he was finished eating, Gruden walked out and stopped in an adjacent hallway. He paused to read the ‘60s section of a historic photo mural, eyeing pictures of Sam Huff and Bobby Mitchell.  

“One word: Lombardi,” was written in plus-size print.

Gruden would soon be introduced as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins.

Back in Snyder’s office, he joked with Jack about his grades. He made small talk with his new boss while Sherry Gruden and Tanya Snyder exchanged pleasantries.

Jay Gruden Thanks His Family, The Bengals And The Redskins

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 10, 2014 – 9:00 am


As new Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden and Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen demonstrated Thursday night, it’s never a bad move to begin with a thank you.

Some of the classiest moves in a classy day for Gruden were the thank yous he delivered to his blood relations,  football family and the center circle of that venn diagram.

Gruden began his statement with a shout out to wife Sherry, sons Joey, Jack and J.J. and mom Kathy, “the toughest Gruden of them all.” He thanked his dad Jim, whom he called a “football coach, a football man, a football person,” and, his brother Jim, who “taught me there’s things other than football that are important.”

The new coach thanked his older brother Jon, who gave him his first NFL job with the 2002 Super Bowl champion Buccaneers. Read more »

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 9, 2014 – 6:17 pm


Bruce Allen didn’t mind answering the phone in the middle of the night.

The Redskins Executive Vice President/General Manager said he received calls at “all hours of the evening” from coaches looking to praise the man sitting to his right inside the auditorium at Redskins Park.

Jay Gruden’s references were impeccable.

Allen introduced Gruden as the 29th head coach of the Washington Redskins in a Thursday night press conference. The executive detailed the franchise’s exhaustive search for it’s new leader and the qualities required of the man who would direct the football team.

Gruden had the fire in his belly Allen described 11 days earlier.

The team’s new teacher accepted a round of applause before thanking his family. Gruden thanked Marvin Lewis, Mike Brown and all the Cincinnati Bengals, then showed his appreciation for Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Allen.

For about 45 minutes, he fielded questions about reviewing the assets he has in Washington, his impressions of quarterback Robert Griffin III and if he favors a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense. Gruden talked about his history with Allen, picking a coaching staff and much more.

Watch the full press conference below and follow the Redskins on Twitter and Instagram for breaking news as Gruden hires his staff.

General Manager Bruce Allen: ‘It Is My Job To Find The Next Head Coach’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 30, 2013 – 3:22 pm


Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen had a “painful” day he said was fitting for a “painful” season.

Allen met with Owner Daniel Snyder and Mike Shanahan at 9 a.m. Monday morning to relieve Shanahan of his duties to the franchise. The GM met with assistant coaches throughout the day, then addressed the media four hours after the dismissed coach made a statement.

Allen stressed that that every member of the organization had a part in a 3-13 season. He spoke to the media about how the franchise has begun its search for a new head coach, what the criteria for that position will be and what the club will learn from a regular season full of distractions.

He talked about how the world of sports lends itself to instant evaluation, how to create stability and how NFL teams can complete quick turnarounds.
