Back-to-Back, Jack?

Some divisions, like the AFC East, are dominated by one team year after year. The Patriots have seemingly won their division every season since the Beatles were still together (ok, only nine out of the last 10, but still).

The Redskins would love to achieve that level of dominance in their neck of the woods, and things are looking as good as they’ve been in many years, after winning the division last season and romping through the preseason.

However, repeating as NFC East champions has proven to be very elusive as of late.

It’s been almost a decade since any team (the 2003-2004 Philadelphia Eagles) went back-to-back as the No. 1 team in the division. All four NFC East teams are in big markets and have ownership groups who are very aggressive about winning, which makes for a highly competitive bunch, year after year. The NFC has almost certainly been the most competitive division in football, when taken as a whole over the past 30 years.

After nearly a decade of back-and-forth, the time is ripe for a back-to-back champ. But can the Redskins do it?

Redskins Work Hard, Rivals Hit The Beach

While not quite as physically demanding as the first two weeks of training camp, the Redskins still grinded out seven practice sessions this week. The last three gave Richmond a sneak peak at how the team operates practices on a weekly basis during the regular season.

Since suffering a torn ACL and LCL against the Seahawks in January, Robert Griffin III’s used every possible outlet to let all know that he’s determined to not only come back during the first week of the season, but that he’s setting his personal standards bar higher in Year Two.

Wednesday’s debut in 11-on-11 drills was a symbol of his progress. To think that a star quarterback who gained 815 rushing yards in his rookie season is only a little over seven months removed from serious surgery that, for some, takes upwards of 12 months to fully recover from speaks volumes to his work ethic and pride to be one of the best ever.

The same can’t be said about our division rival Dallas Cowboys, though. Instead of punching the clock at another training camp practice, the Cowboys decided to take their festivities elsewhere.

Potential Obstacle To Consecutive Crowns

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 20, 2013 – 1:49 pm

Last year the Washington Redskins won 10 games for the first time since 2005 en route to the NFC East crown.

Half of those wins came against division foes and if it weren’t for a late touchdown pass surrendered to the New York Giants in Week 7 they would have gone undefeated in the division.

With the season that was fully behind us now (training camp is only five weeks away) it’s time to look ahead and see if the Redskins can win back-to-back NFC East titles for the first time since 1983-1984.

From 1976 to 1985 the Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, their biggest rival of course, went back and forth at finishing on top of the division.

Some 30 years and one Week 17 do-or-die matchup later, it looks like the two franchises are going to rehash their war at the top of the East.

Bowen Channels Tragedy To Help Others

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 14, 2013 – 11:51 am

Not every charity has a happy inspiration, but Redskins’ defensive end Stephen Bowen would like to provide peace to families that might not otherwise be so fortunate.

It was June 2011, shortly before signing with the Redskins, that Bowen and his wife Tiffany gave birth to twin boys, Stephen Jr. and Skyler.

The boys were born prematurely at just 24 weeks, and entered immediately into the fight of their young lives.

Weeks later, Skyler developed an infection that his underdeveloped immune system was unable to fight, and he passed away.

Understanding how fortunate they were cover the medical and funeral costs of their child, Stephen and Tiffany developed a plan to turn their loss into a saving grace for others. Read more »

The Redskins have played the Seahawks 17 times in the regular season and postseason combined. Washington is 5-3 in home games against Seattle, with all eight meetings having come during regular-season play.

The Seahawks formed as an NFL expansion franchise in 1976. They’ve won one conference championship (2005), seven division championships and have had 11 playoff appearances overall. Seattle’s CenturyLink Field is located about 12 miles northwest of the team’s training facility in Renton, Was.

MIC’D UP: Griffin III Vs. The Cowboys

Posted by Andrew Walker on January 2, 2013 – 10:34 pm

When everything was on the line, the Washington Redskins turned to their young leader to guide them to their first NFC East title since 1999.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III orchestrated that performance last Sunday in Washington’s 28-18 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, a win-or-go-home matchup that led to Sunday’s Wild Card Round playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks at FedExField.

Griffin III was mic’d up for this critical NFC East championship game for NFL Films and the league’s show, “Sound FX,” much like middle linebacker London Fletcher was in this year’s Monday Night Football game vs. the New York Giants.

The Griffin III video is below; but first, here’s some of my personal favorites from the quarterback in this game:

Redskins-Cowboys Scores High Ratings

If you were anywhere near a TV or a computer in the past few days, there’s a good chance you heard “Redskins” and “Cowboys” dozens and dozens of times.

After days of hype, the two teams and rivals met on national TV last night for NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” in a game that was turned out to be the NFC East championship. The winner moves on to host a playoff game; the loser goes home.

In case you forgot, the Redskins won 28-18 and will play host to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday at in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs.

Not surprisingly, the game performed very, very well ratings-wise, according to NBC Sports. Here’s some of their tweets from this morning:

You probably remember midway through the fourth quarter of last night’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys when Redskins punter Sav Rocca was called for a facemask penalty after bringing down Cowboys punt returner Dwayne Harris.

Now, thanks to the .GIF above, this play can live in the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry lore.

Redskins Celebrate Goal No. 1 On Twitter

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 31, 2012 – 4:01 am

Screen Shot 2012-12-31 at 3.55.10 AM

The Washington Redskins’ Goal No. 1 is accomplished.

The team claimed its first NFC East title late since 1999 Sunday night with its 28-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys. When they got back into their locker room, they found their NFC East Division Champions hats waiting for them.

But, as head coach Mike Shanahan has reiterated the past few weeks, only one team is happy at the end of the season. A divisional title off the heels of seven straight wins is nice, but it won’t mean anything if it doesn’t translate into a Super Bowl ring at season’s end.

For early this morning and into the day, however, the Redskins can celebrate their victory over the Cowboys. Then it’s on to the Seattle Seahawks, the Redskins’ opponent in Sunday’s playoff matchup at FedExField.

Here’s a collection of the Redskins players celebrating Sunday night’s win via Twitter:
