Donte Stallworth: Historical Quote Buff

Posted by Stephen Czarda on August 13, 2013 – 10:51 am

ds

George Washington, John Quincy Adams and Donte Stallworth—all three have more in common than you think.

Sure there aren’t any photos on the first president’s Facebook page of him wearing camouflage shorts nor did John Qunicy Adams ever rock a part of bright red kicks under his coattails, but the three share a love of the United States of America that is unwavering.

Stallworth, who’s entering his second stint with the Washington Redskins after spending a very brief stint in one of the fellow 13 original colonies  in Boston (aka the New England Patriots), fancies himself on being a star receiver and a history buff—in no particular order.

While most use Twitter to speak of how stellar girls night went or their thoughts on the ridiculousness that is Sharknado (because it is), Stallworth uses his as a platform to show his passion for the foundation of this great country.

Besides, nothing screams America more than social media.

Stallworth Speaks On Balloon Accident

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 11, 2013 – 2:25 pm

(AP Image)

With the start of minicamp this week, the entire squad is back and ready to take on the first step towards hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.

After getting their legs loose and acquiring instruction from the coaching staff, the receiving core stepped onto the field at the team’s indoor practice facility ready to prove that this team’s aerial attack shouldn’t be cast away in the shadows because of Alfred Morris and the rest of the ground game’s success.

For anyone that was in attendance, they got to opportunity to see the newest (in a sense) Redskin as well: wide receiver Donte Stallworth.

For the former Patriot/Saint/Eagle/Brown/Raven and yes Redskin (2011), he is just happy to be back doing what he loves most after a horrifying life-threatening experience just months prior.

Stallworth’s Impact Bigger Than Numbers

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 22, 2012 – 2:56 pm

AP Image

Reports surfaced two days ago that free agent receiver Donte’ Stallworth had agreed to terms with his former team, the New England Patriots, to return for the 2012 season.  Stallworth spent the 2011 season with the Redskins, his sixth team in as many seasons.

Stallworth was a serviceable receiver with the Redskins, making several spectacular catches, including a touchdown in the game against Dallas.  He had his best game of the year against the Patriots, burning his former teammates for 96 yards through the air.

But Stallworth’s finest hour in Washington was not on the field, and can’t be seen in the highlight reels.  His lasting impact on this franchise will be his influence on the players that constitute the youth movement in Washington.

When Stallworth came to Washington in August, he promised to provide the fabled ‘veteran leadership’ that many claim but few can provide.  His locker was positioned near the door, and players would chat with him on their way in and out of the locker room.

His most-profound impact was likely on rookie receivers Niles Paul and Leonard Hankerson, as well as fellow Bay Area-native DeJon Gomes.  Whether it was showing these players how to practice on the field, or how to act off of it, each of these three rookies blossomed into solid contributors for the team in 2011.

As a well-known free agent receiver, I knew Donte’ The Player before he joined the team.  But there were a few moments during the season when I realized what a professional he truly was. Read more »

Players Flex, Tweet Offseason Muscles

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 24, 2012 – 3:08 pm

Yesterday, Redskins safety LaRon Landry (@MrLandry30) wowed Twitterverse with a photo of his arms, allegedly taken following his morning workout and protein regimen.  He tweeted simply, “You can’t build a reputation on what your going to do”… #grindmode.

In the age of Photoshop, it’s easy to tweak a picture, but this somehow seems legitimate.  And hey, if I believe that Byron Westbrook did a Cinnamon and Old Bay Challenge, why shouldn’t I believe that Landry has ginormous arms?  Decide for yourself:

The real story, however, was in the response from his fellow players.  Today, teammates Donte’ Stallworth and Adam Carriker had something to add to the mirror muscle exposé. Read more »

Stallworth Flashes Back To Grant Union HS

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 12, 2012 – 4:03 pm

One of the most active Redskins media socialites so far this offseason has been receiver Donte’ Stallworth, who has launched many of his thoughts, musings and cosmic inquiries into Twitterverse.  If you don’t follow him (@DonteStallworth), I recommend it.

Today’s notable tidbit comes to us via his new favorite app, instagr.am picture sharing:

No need for apologies, Donte’.  Just keep celebrating #ThrowbackThursday with pictures from your high school days:

Redskins Players Back To The Real World

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 3, 2012 – 11:55 am

AP Image

For the last four months, 10:50 a.m. on a weekday has been my cue to walk down the steps at Redskins Park to chat with players in open locker room.  There weren’t always a lot of players available at a time, but there was always someone.

Taking a peek into the locker room today, most lockers are cleared out and there are no players in sight.  The only thing missing is a tumbleweed rolling out of the adjacent equipment room.

While some players make their offseason homes in Loudoun County, many others have dispersed across the country, back to the lives they live off the record.  In their first 24 hours of offseason living, some of these players have had a blast, while others have gone about their un-glamorous business.

Here’s a Twitter recap of the first 24 hours. Read more »

Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 1, 2012 – 3:27 pm

AP Image

Following a long touchdown pass to Roy Helu–the first receiving score of his career–the Redskins were right back in the game.  However, if they want to stay in it for the fourth quarter, they have to eliminate the big 15-yard penalties that are consistently pushing them backward.  So far, they have three of them on the afternoon.

The first was a penalty on Santana Moss for taking his helmet off after a play. He was understandably frustrated, but that’s a long-standing rule–on the field, helmets stay on.

The second penalty was on Donte’ Stallworth on the Roy Helu touchdown catch and run.  It’s unclear what exactly was going on, but Stallworth took a knee in the end zone and was flagged for excessive celebration, going to the ground in the end zone.

The third penalty was for a hit on a defenseless receiver, on the defense.

You can say what you want about the legitimacy of the rules, the interpretation of said rules, and whether or not the Redskins players violated those rules.  I certainly have my own thoughts on all three facets.  But no amount of angst or debate on the topic will change the fact that the Redskins put themselves in a position to be flagged for three flagrant fouls in a game that they’re losing.

This is a game for pride alone, and this isn’t the type of focused football that’s going to win this afternoon.

On a very positive note, running back Evan Royster is over 100 yards from scrimmage again this week, piling up 73 on the ground and 37 through the air.  It’s hard to project how Royster and Helu will pan out to a 16-game season, but the experience that they’ve gained in their respective rookie campaigns have laid the groundwork for an informed, focused offseason.

Although the Redskins haven’t found their top guy in the passing game today, Grossman has spread the ball around, finding nine different receivers, including Brandon Banks for the time this season.  Receiver Jabar Gaffney was a non-factor in the third quarter and still needs 53 yards to reach 1,000 on the season.

After three quarters in Philadelphia, it’s still in reach for the Burgundy and Gold: Redskins 7, Eagles 13.

Redskins Ready To Rumble In ‘The Linc’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 1, 2012 – 1:02 pm

AP Image

Redskins players have taken and exited the field this afternoon, and they look ready to find meaning in this supposedly meaningless Week 17 game.

For Redskins punter Sav Rocca, this is his first return to his first NFL city, to take on a team that wanted to get younger at the punter postion.  In the first game against the Eagles this season, Rocca had a fine game, booting four times for a 42.5 average, a long of 53, and two punts downed inside the 20.

In pregame warmup, he and battery mate Nick Sundberg was rocketing bombs down the field.  Here’s his last effort:

Fellow special teamer Graham Gano was knocking his own missiles through the uprights from distances of 60 yards.  They both look calm and unaffected by the 10-15 mph winds.

On the offense, this is also the return of Jabar Gaffney and Donte’ Stallworth to Philadelphia.  Gaffney is chasing a career-year, having already matched his touchdown mark and exceeded his yardage output for a season.  With a touchdown and 81 more yards, he’ll finish the season as the team’s top receiver, with his first 1,000 yard season and six touchdowns.

Stallworth wasn’t backing down from heckles during pregame warmup, and seemed especially fired up–even for him.  Here’s footage of the receivers warming up with coach Keenan McCardell:

Gaffney seems to have perfected the one-handed touchdown catch.  Nothing like a little flair to go with his best season ever.

Here are the players’ tweeted thoughts as kickoff approaches:

And in case you were wondering, not even one nationally recognized NFL expert is picking the Redskins to win.  This reminds me of when the Redskins went on the road two weeks ago and knocked off the Giants in decisive fashion.

Don’t count that out from happening again.  And don’t forget to participate in the “2012 Social Showdown” in the next few minutes.

The Southpaw Chronicles: Brandon Banks

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 2:19 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After Brandon Banks revealed to the world that he was a lefty with a gadget touchdown pass against the New England Patriots, it piqued my interest in the left-handers on the team.

It turns out that lefties comprise 15 percent of the population, but are a brilliant class of people.  There are many famous lefties, including four of the last six presidents, Joan of Arc, Alexander the Great, and Bart Simpson.

With the help of Redskins.com’s Jessica Monaldo and receiver Anthony Armstrong, I identified the southpaws on the team, and sought to find out what makes them so brilliant.

I began my search with Banks, the man who inspired my mission.

Banks’s world-class speed is well documented, and vision allows him to find creases in the coverage, and accelerate upfield.  Although rarely used, he also has the type of game-changing speed on offense that forces defenses to respect all that he can do.

But according to a Yahoo! Sports contribution by Rebecca Bardelli, Banks also has some of the best hair in the NFL. Read more »

Halftime Report From FedExField

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 24, 2011 – 2:28 pm

AP Image

In the last two weeks Darrel Young has gone from an unsung hero in the blocking game, to being a weapon and playmaker on offense.  On the Redskins touchdown drive early in the second quarter, Young caught two passes for 33 yards.  At the time, he was the team’s top receiver, and it was Young’s top receiving day, ever.

Not a bad offensive performance for a former linebacker from an FBS college.

The drive was culminated in a short touchdown reception by receiver Donte’ Stallworth, who stretched the ball across the goal line before absorbing a savage hit.  He also negated a sack on the ensuing drive by converting a long third down with a nimble catch and run.

Stallworth has also been a bright spot for the Redskins down the stretch, providing sure hands on the field and quality leadership off of it.  Stallworth watched the Redskins-Dolphins game as a free agent before rejoining the team the following week.  He has two receptions for 24 yards today and 18 receptions for 266 yards and two touchdowns on the year.  He has 220 of his yards and both touchdowns since he rejoined the team.

Running back Evan Royster looked much more comfortable in the second quarter, rushing four times for 24 yards, increasing his game average to 5.9 yards per carry.  Not only has he found good yards after contact, he also played an instrumental role in picking up Stallworth’s long third down conversion by throwing a deep block.

The top defender in the first half has been one of the top defenders in the NFL this season–middle linebacker London Fletcher.  After falling behind early, he rallied his fellow defenders to get back on their horses and shut the Vikings out.  The Redskins–led by the NFL’s top tackler–haven’t yielded points to the Vikings since the 14:56 mark in the second quarter.

Brand new ballgame in the second half, as the Redskins brough it back to even: Washington 10, Minnesota 10.
