Former Redskin Earnest Byner Discusses New Book ‘Everybody Fumbles’

Earnest Byner hasn’t let one play define him.

His new book, “Everybody Fumbles,” which was just released in a second edition, discusses his infamy in Cleveland history for the play termed “The Fumble,” and, more importantly, how he learned to shed his internal demons in the NFL.

As a running back for the Browns in the 1988 AFC Championship game, Byner had a chance to score a touchdown and tie the game against the Broncos. As he raced for the goal line, he was stripped of the ball at the two-yard line allowing Denver to recover, ending Cleveland’s dreams of heading to the Super Bowl.

“Having to go through the consistent lashing that I took, regarding that, it just made me want to help people that have made, not even as drastic  a mistake as that was,” Byner told The Redskins Blog.

“In life, we all make these mistakes,” he said. “We all have to deal with learning from the mistakes. We all have to do that. So that initially motivated me into writing. By nature, I’m a teacher. This is another way of teaching but also giving people answers for dealing with different aspects of life.”

The book, which is available for purchase on Amazon and Byner’s website, also details his career, including winning a Super Bowl as a Redskin. His recently started book tour has allowed him to interact with fans and heal old wounds.

“It’s been really good. It’s been a real blessing,” Byner said. “Just being able to shake the hands of people and exchange some love. It’s been really powerful.”

Byner said it was his move to Washington that helped him recover and forgive himself the most.

“That play is just part of my legacy,”Byner said. “The things that gave me comfort was the spiritual connection that I got when I came to Washington, through Coach Gibbs, Tim Johnson, Darrell Green…When I got that spiritual connection I was able to forgive myself for that but still be able to use that energy to move forward.”

The biggest factor was inside the locker room. Byner described there being a “level of accountability” that allowed for an honesty and interconnectedness between players, creating a foundation to bond on and off the field.

“It was a lot of grown men that really took to that mentality,” he said. “It was really powerful to be there to go through that growing process.”

Byner will be coming to the D.C. metro area on January 18 for a book signing at Great Moments retail store located in the Westview Promenade in Frederick, Md.

Once A Redskin, Champ Bailey Could Be A Super Bowl XLVIII Champion

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 1:30 pm

(AP)

(AP)

The Champ is there, and for the first time in a 15-year NFL career, his name could relinquish any modicum of irony.

Roland “Champ” Bailey Jr., whom the Washington Redskins drafted with the seventh overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, will represent the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Bailey contributed to an NFC East title in Washington as a rookie in 1999 and was named to the Pro Bowl in three of four AFC West championship campaigns for Denver. But the 2013 season wrought his first conference championship, and as a result, his first trip to the Super Bowl.

Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., offers a chance for the man who’s earned every superlative to capture the most coveted prize in the game. In the week leading up to the game, Bailey’s history with the Redskins before a 2004 trade sent him to Denver has been a topic at the Super Bowl media circus.

The Redskins Ultimate Pro Bowler Frankenstein Sketch

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 4:11 pm

Frankwide

Over the course of a week, we asked you  to stop your typical Facebook piddling and play Dr. Frankenstein (it’s pronounced Franken-steen) to create the ultimate Redskins Pro Bowler.

Your picks are in. Here’s the superhuman you created accompanied by some of the worst blogger-created art you will ever see.

 

PART 1: STRENGTH AND PERSERVERANCE (TORSO)

You chose John Riggins‘ toughness over Sonny Jurgensen’s arm strength, Joe Jacoby’s upper body strength and Russ Grimm’s grit. Riggins went to the 1975 Pro Bowl. Read more »

Darrell Green Shows Off Rookie Helmet

One of the many morning tasks when I get to work, after sitting and waiting in traffic like thousands of other DMV’ers, is to see what Redskins Nation was up to overnight. Especially with London Fletcher’s announcement of one percent possibility that 2013 won’t be his last season, a lot when on yesterday without our net initially capturing it.

With #DallasWeek (just accept that hastags are now a part of modern journalism/life/language) in full swing, there were many a moments I found myself looking at in the media gallery on Redskins.com. One of the most memorable Redskins-Cowboys flashbacks that gets people going is Darrell Green—a tenderfoot Green making his very first NFL appearance—running down an overly confident Tony Dorsett just short of a long touchdown scamper.

Speaking of Green’s rookie season, he tweeted out this #TBT picture of his rookie helmet and an exchange he made with the Minister of Defense:

Darrell Green Hosts 24th Annual Christmas With The Redskins

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 10, 2013 – 3:54 pm

Darrell Green stood on a stage at the Hilton McLean Tyson’s Corner and talked about childhood holidays when he was grateful just for a piece of fruit and a pair of ill-fitting shoes.

Shortly thereafter, two doors swung open and busloads of underprivileged children flooded the ballroom.

The Darrell Green Youth Life Foundation ensured kids from low-income and broken homes had a reason to celebrate at the 24th annual Christmas With the Redskins.

The children were treated to a buffet of sliders, chicken tenders, french fries and brownies. Behind a black curtain, tables full of stuffed animals, pink Barbie convertibles and action figures waited for new owners. Appropriately-sized sneakers had been selected for each individual. Read more »

Series History: Redskins 49ers

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.

DeAngelo Hall At 30 And Beyond

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 19, 2013 – 2:15 pm

(AP)

Things I’m worried will happen to me after my 30th birthday:

-A trip to Home Depot will be a treat.
-My sweater collection will expand. I’ll wear a wool sheath every day, even in the summer. (I’m wearing a sweater today. It’s happening already.)
-The bridge from my chest mane to my back scruff will finally connect, creating a Beringia of sorts.

Now that you’re thoroughly grossed out, we can discuss DeAngelo Hall and the 30th anniversary of his birth. Read more »

Since 1932, when the Redskins were the Boston Braves, the clashes between the Redskins franchise and the Chicago Bears have provided indelible moments. Sammy Baugh showed the NFL how to win with the pass. Darrell Green was tough and fast. DeAngelo Hall was unstoppable.

Throwback Thursday: Green Touchdown

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 17, 2013 – 2:05 pm

(AP Image)

There are certain plays that define a player’s career. Sometimes those plays go under-the-radar and you never hear a word about them from the media such as an offensive lineman laying a key block that sets up “70 Chip” or a special teams ace pinning back his ears and bedeviling a speedy return man for a negative return.

For others such as quarterback Robert Griffin III and Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green, each week seems/seemed to produce yet another iconic play or moment that will live on in franchise lore for eternity.

25 years ago in an NFC Divisional Game against the Chicago Bears, Green’s already growing status officially reached legendary with one punt return.

Current Redskins, HOFers All-Underrated

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 5, 2013 – 11:12 am

(AP Images)

With the calendar reading July 5th and firecrackers being swept away from neighborhood corners, it’s time to get back to football— more importantly, the Washington Redskins.

Last year, the Redskins were one of the most underrated teams in the league as most previews predicated that another year tacked onto the team’s playoff drought was more certain than hot weather in the heart of summer.

Speaking of underrated, the 2012 NFC East crown would have never landed in our Nation’s Capital if it weren’t for two of the five most undervalued players in franchise history.

Let’s take a look at which stars made the “cut”.
