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

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

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

Larry Centers scored the winning touchdown in overtime against the 49ers in 1999 (AP)

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.

For a look at these moments and more, scope out the gallery below.

Throwback Thursday: Green Touchdown

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

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

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”.

Who Makes Cut For Redskins’ Rushmore?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 31, 2013 – 2:53 pm

Redskins fans unite to form the best fanbase not only the NFL but across the entire sports spectrum. That’s obvious.

No matter if it is a Robert Griffin III dazzling 76-yard touchdowna Darrell Green punt return, or John Riggins barreling over the Miami Dolphins determined to bring our Nation’s Capital its first Lombardi Trophy, Redskins Nation basks in the glory of the franchise’s success together.

What isn’t so clear, though, is every fan’s thoughts on the four greatest Redskins. Whether it is at the water cooler at work or at your local bar, debates rage over who are the best in Redskins history.

Put all the banter aside and let your voice be heard as to who deserves the prestigious honor of being on the Redskins’ Mt. Rushmore.
