There’s little to worry about on this Friday the 13th, especially when it’s your birthday.

That’s right, Redskins fans. Cornerback E.J. Biggers is celebrating his 27th birthday on this day of fear long ingrained in American history.

But you shouldn’t fear on this occasion. As Biggers continues to grow in the Redskins defense, the only panicky feeling should be coming from opposing wide receivers.

Redskins Blog’s gift to you, E.J., is a look back at your first season with the burgundy and gold.

When Washington Redskins wide receiver Joshua Morgan and cornerback E.J. Biggers take the field tonight, they’ll be doing more than showcasing months of hard work for the moment.  They’ll be dedicating their performances to the Never Quit Challenge (NQC) and Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF).

The Never Quit Challenge is a personal watercraft adventure that extends over 1,600 miles. Teams of Jet Ski riders and military veterans started a journey to span the Atlantic Ocean border on September 6th in Key West. On September 11th, they will arrive at their end destination of New York City.

The two will be joined by Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin and defensive end Vinny Curry in dedication to the Never Quit Challenge.

E.J. Biggers: ‘Going To Be Fun Going Back’

Tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers serves many different purposes for the currently 75-man Washington Redskins squad. For starters like Alfred Morris, London Fletcher and DeAngelo Hall, they may sparingly at most, resting their bodies for what will assuredly be another season of constant pounding on their built frames. For rookies such as Chris Thompson, Skye Dawson and Nick Williams, not only are they fighting for the possible right to field Philadelphia Eagles punter Donnie Jones’ skyrockets on September 9th, but are jockeying for depth placement at their respective positions.

Then there is E.J. Biggers who’s spot on the roster was all but confirmed the day he signed on the dotted line of his new contract in March. In four seasons in the NFL, Biggers has appeared in 45 games (24 starts) amassing 153 tackles (131 solo), three interceptions, 27 passes defensed, two forced fumbles, one sack and 16 special teams tackles–all of which came with the Buccaneers.

While he is now a Washington Redskin, Biggers said that he knew that he’d be entering uncharted waters tonight in a stadium best known for a pirate ship.

“It’s going to be fun going back coming out of the opposite locker room and tunnel for the first time.”

So yeah—no SportCenter Not Top 10 appearance for Biggers tomorrow morning for failing to recognize which locker room is his.

Storylines To Follow In 2013: WAS-PHI

Last year when the Washington Redskins were sitting at 3-6 entering the Bye Week, almost no one outside of the DMV predicted they would climb out of the division cellar.

One seven-game winning streak later and those who said such things are now biting their tongues reading about the defending NFC East champs.

With the Philadelphia Eagles on the slate twice in the last two months of the season, the Redskins should have never been counted out. After all, the Redskins have recorded more wins against the Eagles (81) than any other team.

As part of the NFL’s opened weekend extravaganza, the 79th edition of Redskins-Eagles will be on Monday Night Football. Here are just some storylines to follow.

What To Watch In 81st Chapter: WAS-NYG

The NFL schedule gods know that the Redskins and Giants will battle for the NFC East title in Week 17.

How?

In three of the last four seasons, the NFC East has come down to the last game of the NFL regular season calendar in a playoff play-in game of sorts. Yes, that includes the game where Alfred Morris tore apart the Cowboys defense en route to the franchise’s first division crown since 1999.

So to continue our mini-series on the Redskins-Giants rivalry that dates back to the franchise’s days in Boston, we are going to look forward to the Burgundy and Gold’s Sunday Night Football tilt at FedExField on December 8th and the season finale on December 29th with five storylines to follow.

New Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers has been training hard each and every day at Redskins Park during the team’s offseason conditioning program.

However, this past Sunday he was able to take a break from football. One day following the culmination of the 2013 NFL Draft, Biggers was in attendance at the Class-AA Bowie Baysox game to throw out the first pitch (we’ll take a look at his technique a little bit later in this post).

But for Biggers, the day had a deeper meaning than simply throwing out the first pitch.

What Will Make Us A Playoff Team in 2013?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 10, 2013 – 11:14 am

Alfred Morris, Robert Griffin III

By now you know all about the 2012 campaign where the Burgundy and Gold secured their first division title since the turn of the century.

While the season that was will go down as one of the most exciting  in franchise history thanks in large part to the instant injection of highlight reel moments by rookie record-breakers Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, the team as a whole stepped up their “game” after the bye week and made those that told them it was time to consider the season a lost cause bite their tongues.

With the 2013 season fast approaching (OTAs start next week!) its time to look forward to what the campaign can bring to the DMV.

As I was browsing the Internet this morning I came across an article by Yahoo! Sports that states what they believe will be key to the Redskins making back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since they made it three straight years from 1990-1992. (Also, in the second year—the Redskins made the playoffs they won Super Bowl XXVI. Just sayin’.)

So lets take a look at what they believe will help the franchise make the 2013 playoffs.

Redskins Lone NFC East Team in Top-10

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 27, 2013 – 10:29 am

Cowboys Redskins Football

The 2013 season is in full swing as free agency enters its third full week of wheeling and dealing. Pieces are being collected as teams look to build depth and are gearing up for a Super Bowl run in New Jersey in a little less than 11 months.

Power rankings have been created as a way to judge teams for the first time since the confetti finished falling from the roof of the Superdome in February.

This time last year, even with the pending additions of Heisman-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III and record-setting running back Alfred Morris, many across the league felt that the Redskins would once again be dwelling in the cellar of the NFC East for the fourth time in five years.

An improbable seven-game winning streak to end the season and the first playoff game in front of a sellout crowd at FedExField in 13 years put any doubts about this team to rest and tore apart preseason “expectations”.

Find out where the league ranks the team in its ever-so-early debut of the 2013 power rankings:
