Ryan Kerrigan Swats An Imposing Foul Ball

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 11, 2014 – 10:29 am

Kerrigan

Chick Hernandez never should have opened his mouth.

I mean, he’s a sports anchor, so that’s his job and he should do that every day, but in the context of talking trash to a Redskins outside linebacker about an upcoming media vs. athlete celebrity softball game, Hernandez should have reconsidered. Read more »

Chick Hernandez And The Greatest Afros In Redskins History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 16, 2014 – 4:04 pm

Chick

I have no doubts CSN Washington anchor Chick Hernandez rises in the morning and likes what he sees in the mirror.

Chick is confident man in a profession of confident men. If he didn’t like what he saw, he probably wouldn’t put it on camera. But maybe some mornings he looks at his closely cropped hair and remembers what was with a pang of nostalgia.

There was a time, a golden age for anchormen, when Chick’s head sprouted hair so abundant it would make Pam Grier weep.  Read more »

Mike Shanahan: Redskins Need “Urgency”

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 27, 2013 – 12:30 pm

(AP)

After reviewing game film of the Redskins’ third straight loss, Mike Shanahan said the team has no choice but to recollect itself and bounce back.

In his weekly one-on-one interview with CSN Washington’s Chick Hernandez, Shanahan said a short week preparing for the Giants will be another test of his team’s constitution.

“There’s gotta be a sense of urgency with our football team that when we do get embarrassed like we did and do score six points, what are we gonna do against the Giatns? How are we gonna play? And that’s where you find out where your character comes from. “

Watch the full interview below.  Read more »

Shanahan A Little Sick Of Tom Brady Too

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 7, 2011 – 9:00 am

In terms of personality, head coach Mike Shanahan is known best for his quiet sidelines intensity that permeates from his pigskin core.

But ask anyone that knows him, and they’ll tell you that he has a notable sense of humor, and a deadpan delivery style that would impress the folks at Saturday Night Live.

On Monday, Shanahan sat down with CSNWashington’s Chick Hernandez to discuss this weekend’s matchup against the New England Patriots.  He discussed, among other things, the competitive games that he’s had against Patriots coach Bill Belichick in the past, and some of the weapons at Belichick’s disposal.

Then Hernandez baited Shanahan, asking, “Are you as sick of Tom Brady as the rest of us are?”

And Shanahan shot back a quick, is-he-joking-or-serious response: Read more »

Ma'ake Kemoeatu Wins Redskins Ed Block Courage Award

Posted by Matt Terl on December 2, 2010 – 12:02 pm

Redskins nose tackle Ma’ake Kemoeatu was named the recipient of the team’s 2010 Ed Block Courage Award. A player on each NFL is given this award, which rewards extraordinary courage in the face of adversity. Kemoeatu has rehabilitated a torn Achilles tendon prior to the 2009 season, and didn’t return to practice until this past offseason.

“I missed a whole year of football,” Kemoeatu said. “I tore my Achilles in training camp 2009, had to get it repaired, had surgery, and after the surgery the skin got infected so I had to have another surgery to get a skin graft. And when I first got here, Larry Hess and the trainers got on me quick, and from April all the way ’til training camp we’ve been working on it and rehabbing and making a comeback. It wasn’t normal until probably, maybe the end of preseason I started feeling like I could walk normal again.”

It was an injury that Keamoeatu briefly thought could end his football career. “It did cross my mind,” Kemoeatu said. “I was like, ‘Football could be over for me.’ And being that it was eight years, it could be over. Football’s not forever; it could be over any time.”

Keamoatu was grateful to his teammates for the honor. “That just shows me that they have my back through thick and thin,” he said.

And then, when Kemoeatu was done speaking to the media, Mike Sellers demonstrated for the cameras once again just how big Kemoeatu’s helmet is, this time even using Comcast SportsNet’s Chick Hernandez as a prop:

Friday, January 7: Two Pictorial Reactions To The Shanahan Hiring

Posted by Matt Terl on January 8, 2010 – 11:56 am

The folks over at ExtremeSkins are a talented bunch. Just in my limited experience with them, I’ve seen ES members cook, organize large-scale gatherings, design hats, and create commemorative booklets, all with a high level of acuity — and I’m sure they all get up to much more than that when I’m not around.

One of the other things they’ve got some skill at is graphic design, and a few of the members have whipped up pictorial references to the hiring of new head coach Mike Shanahan. Two of them jumped out at me, as both striking images and accurate representations of fan reaction, and I thought they were worth posting here. (Click the images to enlarge.)

Jason Campbell And Rock Cartwright Watch The Presser

Posted by Matt Terl on January 7, 2010 – 9:40 am

http://p.castfire.com/7N8o1/video/223105/csn_2010-01-06-190532.flv

Some quality work from Comcast SportsNet here: Chick Hernandez watches the press conference introducing Mike Shanahan with Jason Campbell and Rock Cartwright, two of the six captains of the 2009 team. I find watching these guys watch this press conference interesting for two reasons, and they rarely overlap:

Reason 1: It affects them very directly. As fans, we watch because we want the team to improve. We want to hear that this new coach is going to clear out the guys we want gone and bring in guys we think are better. We want to hear that he’s going to institute some discipline and really make the players work. As players, they have to worry about being gone, about being subject to that discipline, and about undergoing a grueling new training camp.

Reason 2: And yet they sound just like us. There are plenty of times during this video where you could replace Rock Cartwright or Jason Campbell with Random Guy From The Barstool Next To You and not notice the difference.

The video starts with a bunch of Reason 2 stuff as the press conference begins on the TV in front of the guys.

Rock Cartwright: “What d’you think Jerry Jones think about that?”

Jason Campbell: “How many guys you think he’ll actually keep? How many coaches you think he’ll keep?”

RC: “I don’t know, man. I don’t know. That’s gonna be tough to figure out.”

[Onscreen, Mike Shanahan is asked about his immediate to-do list.]

RC: “I can’t even imagine coming in, man. You got so much stuff you gotta do.”

JC: “You got a TON of stuff. You probably already been looking at some stuff, though. You been looking at some stuff about a month and half, two months now. Ever since after the Detroit game.”

RC: “He’s probably been watching the games and everything, too. You know that.”

I’ve lumped the above exchange under Reason 2 because — you’ll notice — it doesn’t actually sound like the two guys actually have any particular reason to believe that Shanahan’s been making plans since the Detroit game. It’s just that they, like so many fans, assume that it’s true.

Then we get some examples of Reason 1 as onscreen Shanahan is asked about Jason Campbell and mentions in his response that he’s going to go over every play of Campbell’s career.

Thursday, August 27: About Those Ice Tubs…

Posted by Matt Terl on August 27, 2009 – 8:59 am

After conducting countless interviews of guys in the ice tub during training camp, I finally manned up a few days ago and got in. Sort of. Not really. But I did stand in one, water and ice cubes up just over my calves, while Shaun Shuisham shouted at me to stick with it.

I did not stick with it. On one attempt, I lasted maybe thirty seconds. Maybe. On the second, I clocked myself and came up just short of a minute. It really didn’t feel too bad at first, especially after standing outside at practice for two hours. But the cooling sensation quickly turns kind of painful, and then just plain painful, not “kind of” anything. Suisham and the other amused spectators all assured me that after the painful stage comes a numb stage, at which point you can stay in for much longer. I’ll take their word for it. (Although I will say that my lower legs felt terrific for the rest of the day even after just that short exposure.)

The moral of this story? That I am much, much wimpier than Comcast SportsNet‘s Chick Hernandez, who actually got into one of the tubs to interview Andre Carter. Although, as you’ll see, it was no picnic for him either.

Hat tip to DC Sports Bog for the video. After the jump, a brief sampling of the many hats of Chick Hernandez.
