“It’s a sleeve. It’s a party on the left hand; it’s all business on the right.”

If you’ve watched any NFL Draft coverage on ESPN over the last four years then I’m sure you’ve managed to see at least bits and pieces of Gruden’s QB Camp with Redskins head coach Jay Gruden’s older brother.

ESPN released some highlights from QB Camp “graduates” time spent with the former head coach and to our luck this specific package features two of the Redskins’ three quarterbacks:

Before Vince Lombardi Coached The Redskins And The Packers, He Was Adored At St. Cecilia High School

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 28, 2014 – 10:54 am



Vince Lombardi brought a new fullback to Redskins training camp in 1969. The problem was Iggy McPartland was slight, past his athletic prime and an ordained priest.

McPartland’s visit to training camp was detailed in “The Gospel of St. Vince,” a tremendous recollection of the Hall-of-Fame coach through the perspective of the now elderly men and women he coached on the football and basketball teams of St. Cecilia High School in Englewood, N.J.

Lombardi loved to be in the company of former Saints. He cried when Iggy McPartland was ordained a priest, and when Father McPartland visited him at Washington Redskins camp a year before the coach’s death, Lombardi introduced him as “my fullback.” After one Washington assistant looked the smallish priest up and down and said, “You’ve got to be kidding me?” Lombardi shot back, “And he was a good one, too.”

As part of his opening statement as Redskins head coach, Jay Gruden delivered a series of thank yous. He reserved a special thanks for his older brother Jon Gruden, the ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster who hired Jay to be an assistant coach in Tampa Bay.

“I wouldn’t be sitting here today without learning everything that I know about football from him,” Jay Gruden said. “What a great brother. What a great person. What a great football coach.”

Jon Gruden appeared on ESPN’s Mike & Mike Wednesday morning and told the hosts his brother deserved the honor.  Read more »

Joe Theismann: Robert Griffin III “The Focal Point And The Central Point’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 2, 2014 – 2:30 pm



While I was wasting three hours visiting four grocery stores on an unfruitful wild legume chase for black eyed-peas Wednesday, Joe Theismann was talking to ESPN’s Mike & Mike about the Redskins.

Theismann detailed the primary area of development he’d like to see from Robert Griffin III and listed his top two head coach prospects for Washington, one of which is no longer available.

[Read Theismann’s goals for RG3]

Before detailing how Griffin III can improve, Theismann asserted the Baylor product’s importance to the franchise and came out in favor of letting the quarterback sit out of last three games of 2013. Read more »

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 2, 2014 – 12:00 pm



Running back Alfred Morris, linebacker Brian Orakpo and cornerback DeAngelo Hall each earned a spot on ESPN’s list of the best players in the NFC East.

After a 3-13 regular season, the Redskins placed the least players of the four teams composing the divisional all-start squad.

ESPN did not award a spot to the NFL’s leading receiver or Washington’s lone Pro Bowler.

Here’s a look at the full team. Read more »

Cowboys Vs. Redskins: Experts Pick ‘Em

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 21, 2013 – 10:05 am

Holy Gee-whiz Golly Gosh Wow.

I don’t know what happened to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk. Maybe a body-snatching alien has overtaken blogging duties this week. Florio has been trolling the Redskins all season, but he’s one of a handful of national media members predicting a win for Washington on Sunday against Dallas.

Redskins Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em: Week 11

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 11:18 am

Jordan Reed

In the second half of the season, as a fantasy owner it’s your responsibility to know the identity each franchise has developed. The Redskins have shown they’re full of quality starts because a porous defense requires the potent offense to explode just to keep pace.

The fantasy experts have taken note. Everybody loves Jordan Reed, Robert Griffin III and Pierre Garçon.

Reed is NFL Media fantasy editor Michael Fabiano‘s favorite tight end this week.

Redskins At Eagles: Experts Pick ‘Em

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 10:41 am

We all respond to stress with our own ways.

Matthew Shultz persecutes lawn gnomes. With their backs against the wall, hopefully the Redskins will respond in a more constructive manner.

In case you haven’t heard this 40 times this week, it’s worth noting last time Washington was 3-6, it reeled off seven consecutive wins en route to a division title.

No one at CBS Sports sees that happening.

Power Rankings Roundup: Week 11

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 10:01 am

Let’s do it again.

In this week’s power rankings, some members of the national media expressed their doubts about Washington’s ability to rebound from a 3-6 record for the second year in a row. If the Redskins are to rise, they’ll have to mimic last year’s late season run. After its 2012 bye, Washington won seven straight games, starting with a 31-6 victory over Philadelphia.

I’m trying to stay optimistic. Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio? Not so much.
