Consider this a Texas anology or an Arkansas anology or a Texarkana anology if you want.
Either way it’s folksy and tremendous and could mean Redskins fans won’t have to worry about a man who picked up at least one sack in 10 of the 16 games he’s faced Washington.
ESPN sat down with Jerry Jones at the NFL Scouting Combine and asked the owner/general manager of the rival Dallas Cowboys about the future of four-time All-Pro DeMarcus Ware.
The following is a response only an affluent oil man could deliver. Read more »

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.

“My first game was against Carolina,” Jammal Brown said. “Julius Peppers. We went out there and won. No sacks, no pressures.”
“It was Jason Taylor,” Stephon Heyer said. “We ended up winning that game, I ended up doing pretty good.”
Artis Hicks also faced off against Taylor early in his career. “He was still in his prime in Miami,” Hicks said. “He was coming off another Pro Bowl year, a high digit sack number, and there I was, a young guy. I just remember thinking, Man! y’know? This is the real deal.“
And there’s something to be gained from knowing you can compete in that real deal. Read more »
