Waiter Ryan Kerrigan Gets A Huge Tip

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 3, 2013 – 11:07 am


“Would you like a crabcake?”

The burly waiter extended a silver tray of hors d’oeuvres, but the patrons were more interested in his autograph.

A black, rectangular name tag reading “Ryan” was affixed to a Ruth’s Chris apron over a crisp white dress shirt and a diagonally-striped gray-and-white tie.

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and nine of his teammates hustled for tips Tuesday at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Arlington, Va., as part of a Celebrity Waiter night to raise funds for Kerrigan’s Blitz For The Better Foundation.

By the end of the night, Kerrigan’s group had raised $108,000 for seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout the greater Washington, D.C., area. Read more »

Santa Claus Is Coming To…FedExField

Jolly Ol’ St. Nick made his first appearance of the season at FedExField today, to participate in the “Harris Teeter-Redskins Harvest Feast” presented by Ryan Homes.

Kris Kringle revealed that not only is he a big Redskins fan, but he also used to be a Redskins season ticket holder.  He would spend more time at his favorite football stadium, were it not for his regular 9-5 of delivering toys to every good little boy and girl in the world.

“When I’m not flying my reindeer, though,” he said, with a twinkle in his eye, “I drive a Burgundy and Gold van around with Redskins decals on the side.” Read more »

Practice Squad Features Some Familiar Faces

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 5, 2011 – 5:37 pm

The recently announced Redskins practice squad features four players that have formerly donned the Burgundy and Gold:

Aldrick Robinson, wide receiver, No. 11

Evan Royster, running back, No. 35

Maurice Hurt, offensive guard, No. 79

Doug Worthington, defensive end, No. 90.

To get to the eight-player maximum, the squad is filled out with four newcomers to the Nation’s Capital.

One of them, quarterback  Jonathan Crompton (No. 3), actually had a chance to scout the area and stadium on Thursday night as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Crompton came into the game in a rotation with Bucs starter Rudy Carpenter, and went 12-for-22 for 149 yards and a touchdown and interception.

The Redskins defense roughed him up a little in the game, sacking him twice, once each from the departed Davonte Shannon and Edgar Jones.  The interception by Josh Wilson was more of an athletic move by Wilson than an errant throw by Crompton, but I’m sure a few introductions will be in order in the locker room tomorrow.

When I asked him today about Wilson, he laughed and replied: “Nah, I haven’t met him yet.  But I’m gonna have to mess with him a little.” Read more »

Young Defenders Rising To The Occasion

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 9, 2011 – 7:57 pm

Much of what the defense does on a daily basis in practice is hard to track in terms of progression and regression.  Games are the only real indication of who is a defender, and who is a pretender.

But with that in mind, here are a few observations about young players finding their form:

1. Ryan Kerrigan is making up for lost time

The knee injury that sidelined him early in camp isn’t fully healed, but he looks comfortable playing in the brace for now.  Kerrigan is going through an adjustment period to the pros, on top of a change of position and responsibility.

Kerrigan was a down lineman in college and didn’t play many snaps in coverage.  He said that he’s been working hard with linebackers coach Lou Spanos to learn his responsibilities in coverage, but it’s still going to take some time to feel natural.  Probably at this point, he’s best suited as a blitzing specialist from the linebacker position, or an extra man with his hand in the dirt.

Today during blitzing drills, Kerrigan was lined up against rookie running back Shaun Draughn.  While there were times that Draughn was able to contain him, there were other times when Kerrigan mauled him en route to the quarterback.

The last play of the drill is one that Draughn won, and is shown below.  In between the players, you can see the battle raging on: Read more »
