Santana Moss: ‘Cowboy Killer’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 8, 2014 – 2:33 pm


Santana Moss made his proper introduction to Washington with two touchdowns and two hugs, one each for Chief Zee and  Clinton Portis.

Moss caught four passes  for 96 yards against the Bears in his first game as a Redskin, but the receiver said earlier he considers a Week 2 performance at Dallas in 2005 his debut.

In the “Monday Night Miracle,” Moss caught two touchdowns in the final five minutes as the Redskins beat the Cowboys, 14-13.

“It’s always somebody, somewhere, anywhere I go, that has that memory. It’s still in their head, and they always bring it up to me. So it’s a pleasrue to be on the other side of that,” Moss told Chris Paul on Redskins Late Night.

“That really kind of started my career off here, and all I do is think back about that night, because that night kind of changed everything about who I’ve become to be a Redskin now.”


Watch Moss relive that memory and talk about how his size stoked a competitive fire in the second edition of, “Best of Redskins Late Night.”

The journeyman fullback won it, crossing the goal line on a 33-yard touchdown catch in overtime that delivered the Redskins their first NFC East championship in eight years.

In 1999, Dan Snyder’s first year as the owner in Washington, Larry Centers caught a ball from Brad Johnson that capped off a 26-20 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

In a series unbalanced in San Francisco’s favor, Centers’ division clinching touchdown is one of the sweetest moments. The Redskins had not defeated the 49ers for 13 years before that moment.

Possible Portis-Griffin III Madden Cover?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 12, 2013 – 4:00 pm

Clinton Portis

While baseball has long been considered the American Pastime, football has made the full-fledged transformation into America’s Game.

As the game has grown in popularity, millions have flocked to get a glimpse of games from Thursdays through Mondays.

Need proof?

How about the Redskins-Cowboys Week 17 do-or-die game that drew record numbers from the Sunday Night Football slot, the league has a network dedicated exclusively to league content 24/7, 365, and one of the greatest video game franchises that has transitioned from generation to generation of video game consoles as evidence of the game’s rise.

That’s right folks, the timeless gaming classic named after one of the greatest football minds in history, Madden, has captured countless hours of gaming fun and even the occasional frustration from living rooms across the globe.

No vote would be complete in the month of March without a bracket, and with 25 years of players to choose from to be on the cover, there are 64 players that could receive the prestigious honor.

Find out which Redskins players could grace the cover of Madden 25 here:

Video: Clinton Portis At Today’s Game

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 25, 2012 – 5:36 pm

Clinton Portis, the Redskins great running back who announced his retirement from football on Thursday, caught up with the Redskins Blog during the first and second quarters of today’s preseason matchup between the Redskins and the Indianapolis Colts.

We just happened to have good timing when talking with Portis — it was smack dab in the middle of the Redskins’ first touchdown drive of the game.

That touchdown, by the way, was scored by rookie running back Alfred Morris, who grew up idolizing Portis, the Redskins’ second-leading rusher in franchise history who on Friday was elected one of the 80 Greatest Players in team history.

Here’s the interview with Portis, who talks about the Robert Griffin III-Andrew Luck hype, the Redskins’ defense, his memories of playing at FedExField, his attitude when it came to being a great blocking back and much more:

Photos: Awesome Gift For Clinton Portis

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 23, 2012 – 3:00 pm

Washington Redskins great running back Clinton Portis just moments ago announced his retirement from football and from the Redskins in a ceremony at the team’s Ashburn, Va., facility.

For seven seasons, Portis gave the Redskins fans the gift of playing the hardest football imaginable — he was a fearless runner and pass blocker who put fear in opposing linebackers in more ways than one.

The Redskins today gave Portis a gift in exchange for all that hard work: an awesome painting depicting the running back carrying the ball against the New York Giants.

Artist LeRoy Neiman painted this beautiful piece of art and titled it “Washington Redskins In FedExField.” It was completed in October, 2005.

Redskins’ public relations staffers Angela Alfano and Dave Lankster are seen in the photos handling the photo and getting it ready for the unveiling.

Clinton Portis Was One Colorful Character

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 22, 2012 – 10:15 am

(AP photo)

Even if he didn’t have an outstanding seven-year career with the Washington Redskins, running back Clinton Portis still would’ve been remembered as one of the most colorful characters to grace the burgundy and gold.

Portis — who will announce his retirement from football in a ceremony Thursday at Redskins Park — will leave the game as the Redskins’ No. 2 all-time rusher, trailing only the great John Riggins.

But Portis, a former University of Miami star who was acquired by the Redskins via trade with the Denver Broncos in 2002, was also very well-known for breaking out a variety of alter egos during his encounters with the local and national media.

The Washington Redskins today said great running back Clinton Portis will announce his retirement in a press conference at Redskins Park on Thursday.

Portis played for the Redskins from 2004 through 2010 and ended his career in Washington as the franchise’s second-leading rusher of all-time (6,824 yards), and his 1,516 yards gained in the 2005 season is a Redskins’ single-season record.

Check out the photo gallery below (thanks to the Associated Press) of Portis’s great performances through the years in a Redskins uniform.
