Guards LeRibeus, Gettis Wait Their Turns

The Redskins’ quarterback play was not exactly spectacular in 2011, but Rex Grossman and John Beck didn’t receive much help from their offensive line.

Injuries–coupled with a high-profile suspension–exposed a severe lack of quality depth. Offensive line coach Chris Foerster was forced to shuffle the lineup more than a half-dozen times that season.

It thus made perfect sense for Mike Shanahan to select two versatile offensive lineman in the 2012 draft. Enter guards Josh LeRibeus (SMU, 3rd round) and Adam Gettis (Iowa, 5th round), who would ostensibly crack the Redskins starting lineup sooner rather than later.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the stadium. Read more »

Hopefully the rain that is currently hovering over the Washington, D.C. area at the moment will be long gone by this time tomorrow as the DMV, along with the rest of the country of course, will gather around pools, grills, and wherever else you convene with friends and family to celebrate the United States of America’s 237th birthday.

Happy (early) Birthday, USA!

For those of you who decided to take off this hump day and use it as prime vacation time for a five-day weekend, I hope you are using it to get away and are perhaps reading this on your smartphone at the beach.

If you are oceanside, there’s a chance you might spot Chris Chester–and maybe Robert Griffin III?

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Jared Ross on July 1, 2013 – 3:00 pm


As we wait for football to start back up, in what I like to call the offseason’s halftime, or the time between Organized Team Activities and training camp, the players are enjoying their time away from the football field.

Thankfully, with calendar’s flipping over to the month of July, we can gladly say that football is back this month!

Last week’s installment of our Social Media Spotlight series covered Josh Morgan’s fluffy new workout partner, a young Chris Baker, another chapter in the life of Mr. Outdoorsman (Reed Doughty) and more. If you did not get a chance to read last week’s Social Media Spotlight, check it out here.

In this week’s edition we follow players through different continents, their quests for treasure and more.

Today, we will discuss defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s treasure-seeking dog, offensive lineman Nick Sundberg’s travels through Europe, wide receiver Aldrick Robinson’s dedication to his community, offensive lineman Chris Chester’s thoughts on the offseason and offensive lineman Josh LeRibus’ trip to a Goo Goo Dolls concert.

TKO Gave Kids ‘Amazing’ Recess Day

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 18, 2013 – 4:45 pm


Last Thursday Tyler’s Kids Outreach (TKO) and the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation teamed up to give a group of local kids the chance to hang out at Redskins Park and spend the day with some of the players for “Extreme Recess”.

TKO was created by offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus and wife Liz to “enrich the lives of children through family, faith and personal growth.”

While dark clouds blanketed the skies throughout the duration of the recess, the gloomy conditions didn’t stop the kids from having the time of their lives with the Washington Redskins.

Chester Enjoying A Charitable Offseason

Redskins guard Chris Chester is one of the important returning cogs in the Redskins offense. Recognized for his durability and gritty play, Chester has yet to miss a game in his two seasons with Washington.

This dedication carries over into his personal life off the field.

During the offseason, Chester reached out to the Northern Virginia Community Foundation, which supports growing philanthropic efforts that help strengthen the community. The foundation connected Chester with a program called ReSET, which focuses on improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) development in high school curriculums.

Chester says he was inspired to contibute to ReSET after reading Hot, Flat and Crowded and That Used to Be Us by Thomas Friedman.

Furthering his philanthropathic ways, Chester also donated $5,000 to the athletic department of Broken Bow High School, his wife’s high school in Oklahoma.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on March 18, 2013 – 3:28 pm


Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

As we continue to bring you updates each week to let you know how Redskins players are spending their offseason, we’re happy to inform fans that players are beginning to slowly trickle back in to Redskins Park after a few months away following the season. Believe it or not, the draft is a little more than a month away which means that OTAs and Redskins football is just around the corner.

In the meantime, we’re here to at least try and keep you engaged until that time comes.

You can check out last week’s Social Media Spotlight which debated the hot topic of whether it’s acceptable for men to wear yoga pants at the gym (still undecided) as well as recapped LB Ryan Kerrigan and K Kai Forbath’s golf outing, QB Robert Griffin III and Baylor’s upset over #4 Kansas, and LB London Fletcher announcing, via Twitter, his plans to return.

This week, we’ll catch a glimpse of WR Dezmon Briscoe working out and working hard, including what Griffin III thinks about the wide receiver’s workout. We’ll also take a look at DE Jarvis Jenkins’s inspirational quote, Kai Forbath’s comments on the return of LS Nick Sundberg and P Sav Rocca, and, last but not least, we’ll bring you WR Pierre Garçon’s take on March Madness.

Plus, does anyone remember the movie Space Jam? We sure do and so does G Chris Chester. We’ll let Chris give his thoughts on Bill Murray’s role in the film and more. Welcome to this week’s Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight!

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

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


Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight covered WR Niles Paul and his former Nebraska Cornhusker teammates doing the Harlem Shake, NT Chris Baker’s plea for 10k Twitter followers as well as a mural from Washington D.C.’s own WR Joshua Morgan.

Admittedly so, most people probably don’t get as far as clicking the link to read these weekly social media updates. Contrarily, some of you may be reading this and say, ‘Who cares about the Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight?’ To that, we say that it’s time to start taking social media seriously.

Fact of the matter is that social media has rapidly integrated itself into our everyday lives.

For those of you who continue to read, here’s a look at K Kai Forbath and LB Ryan Kerrigan as they hit the links, QB Robert Griffin III’s return to Baylor, LB London Fletcher‘s preparation for season 16 and G Chris Chester‘s odd, and forgettable, experience at his local gym.

Teammates Congratulate Griffin III

On Saturday, quarterback Robert Griffin III wrapped up his phenomenal rookie campaign winning the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award over fellow first-year studs Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson.

The award is just icing on the cake for the quarterback. He smashed his way into the record books the moment he put on his number 10 Redskins jersey.

In his professional debut in New Orleans, he tossed a pair of  touchdown passes in a 40-32 victory over the Saints. He capped off his season leading the team to its first NFC East title in 13 years.

He amassed 20 touchdowns, 3,200 yards, and a 102.4 quarterback rating  through the air along with 815 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 15 regular season games.

Griffin III was instrumental in revolutionizing Washington’s offense. He was the catalyst of a top five unit that led the league in rushing with 169.3 yards per game.

While Robert rightfully deserved the accolade for his accomplishments, football is the ultimate team sport. He is just one of 53 men who make up the Washington Redskins on game days.

Find out what some of his teammates had to say to him on Twitter here: Read more »

‘Distinguished’ Chester Ready For 2012

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 5, 2012 – 9:39 am

With a full year of experience with the Washington Redskins behind him, veteran offensive lineman Chris Chester is primed for a strong 2012 season.

The only Redskins’ offensive lineman to start all 16 games at the same position last season, Chester settled in at right guard and quickly learned coach Mike Shanahan’s zone-blocking scheme.

Chester – who played collegiately at Oklahoma before spending five years with the Baltimore Ravens – was also key to the successful rookie seasons of running backs Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, who combined to rush for 968 yards in 2011, oftentimes by running through Chester’s blocks.
