Pierre Garcon takes off

The odd musical selection continues. Today at Redskins Park, the team stretched out to country music tunes, ZZ Top and AC/DC as opposed to the normal hip-hop fare.

Young, Robinson Provide Explosive Plays

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 18, 2013 – 12:07 pm

On what was ultimately another disheartening afternoon for the Redskins in Philadelphia, Darrel Young, Aldrick Robinson and Robert Griffin III gave Washington a chance.

Two explosive fourth-quarter touchdown catches and the ensuing two-point conversions put Washington eight points away from tying a game dictated by the Eagles in the first 45 minutes of play.

Let’s examine what led to each scoring reception.

Highlight: Darrel Young puts the Redskins on the board with a 62-yard catch and run.

Darrel Young Plays Santa’s Elf

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 14, 2013 – 4:42 pm

Darrel Young is never too busy to make a difference.

The fullback is a mainstay at community events. On Tuesday he pulled double duty, starting the day off playing quarterback at a Play60 mini-combine before donning a green elf’s hat to deliver letters written to Santa Claus at Macy’s. As part of the 2013 Believe Campaign, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for every letter written and delivered to a local Macy’s store. Macy’s will donate up to $1 million.

When Young arrived at Macy’s, he enjoyed time with children from the Make-A-Wish Foundation who either had a wish granted or are still waiting for a wish to be granted.

For Young, it was just another chance to make a kid smile.

No Easy Catches On Niles Paul

Niles Paul made them earn it.

Students from D.C., Virginia, and Maryland flocked to the Redskins’ indoor practice facility on Tuesday to run drills with the professionals as part of the Thriving Schools Play60 Mini Combine presented by Kaiser Permanente.

In one station Darrel Young bounced along to pop music and slung passes while Niles Paul played bump and run coverage.

Young’s Army Brother Saw First NFL TD

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 11, 2013 – 10:30 am

In honor of Veterans Day, ESPN’s NFL Sunday Countdown did a special featuring highlighting the relationship between Washington Redskins fullback Darrel Young and his older brother David, a member of the US Army.

It’s become so easy these days to associate terms such as “battles in the trenches” and “football is a war” with the sport, but as younger brother Darrel admitted, all he does at the end of the day is try to help a football team win a simple game.

What David does goes well beyond his daily duties as a fullback.

As he did last Sunday when he scampered into the end zone on three different occasions, one of Young’s biggest contributions is penetrating a defense failing to locate him on sneak attacks.

On November 15th, 2010, the undrafted linebacker turned fullback scored his first career touchdown on his first offensive play of the game.

It was literally a touchdown heard around the world.

Redskins Weekly Stat Ranking Update

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 5, 2013 – 10:25 am

In December of 1998, Psycho was the No. 1 box office hit, London Fletcher was a spry NFL rookie and Santana Moss was wrapping up a second historical season at the University of Miami.

It was also the last time the Washington Redskins walked out of a hard fought game against the San Diego Chargers with victory.

Well so much for that because Psycho is stashed away in my dust-ridden VHS collection, London Fletcher could rock a grizzly, salt and pepper grey beard for No Shave November that even George Clooney would get jealous of, Santana Moss has or is close to hitting several NFL statistical plateaus and the Redskins hold a one-game winning streak over the Bolts.

Anyway, this week’s weekly stat ranking update features a whole lot of Alfred Morris yards per carry, Fletcher takedowns and DeAngelo Hall touchdown celebrations.

It’s A Bird…It’s A Plane…It’s RGIII!

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 4, 2013 – 2:11 pm

Usually on gamedays I post GIFs of some of the best plays such as Pierre Garcon beaming in footballs with one hand like he has a magnet under his glove, Darrel Young reaffirming the importance of the fullback position and Jordan Reed breaking Cowboys taluses.

When Robert Griffin III went airborne yesterday before landing in an awkward position I paused, waited and ultimately decided not to hit publish on a GIF I found of the gravity defying moment.

Now knowing that his sacrifice for the team in a tie game didn’t result in anything more than a slight cringe, it’s safe to say I can now post the sucker here:

What Went Right: Redskins Chargers

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 4, 2013 – 12:55 pm

Highlight: Darrel Young bangs into the end zone from 4 yards out, ending overtime and delivering a win.

What went right: Power football. The offensive line is fast off the ball, delivering a push at the line of scrimmage. Young takes the quick handoff and sees a crease up the middle. The fullback slips behind Kory Lichtensteiger and follows the lane created by two athletic linemen sealing off the next level. Will Montgomery ties up linebacker Bront Bird. Tackle Tyler Polumbus puts linebacker Andrew Gachkar on skates. Young finishes through contact and falls forward for a touchdown.
