Five lucky Redskins fans on Thursday evening were able to hang out with Redskins’ defensive end Jarvis Jenkins – via the internet.
Thursday’s Google+ Hangout With Jarvis Jenkins gave those fans an opportunity to talk with Jenkins via webcam, asking the second-year defensive end a variety of questions about his life in the NFL.

The Redskins are in the process of introducing a brand new franchise timeline to the team’s Facebook page, and are looking for your input into what the cover will look like.
Yeah, that’s right, we’re looking for (*insert your name*)’s help. This is not some generic invitation, it was intended for (*insert same name*) and all of his or her closest friends.
It’s pretty simple: go to the Facebook page devoted to the vote, and select your favorite image from the available list. It’s divided up into decades, with an iconic Redskins shot from each of the eight decades that the team has been in existence.
I have to imagine that the 1980s image is going to get a lot of consideration from voters, but there could be a lot of octogenarians on Facebook who fondly remember the 1940s. I’m just saying.
This project is particularly fitting, given that the team will be celebrating its 80th anniversary this season, and 75th season in Washington D.C. Happy voting, Redskins Nation.

If you’re a passionate Redskins fan and can prove it photographically, you could win lunch with general manager Bruce Allen at Redskins Park, along with a host of other terrific prizes. Here’s the deal:
Go to http://Redsk.in/FanDraft to enter. Submit a fan photo demonstrating your passion and support for the Redskins, explain why you’re the biggest Redskins fan, and you could win a chance to be selected for the grand prize. Which is pretty grand, as these things go — big enough that it gets explained in its own bullet-pointed list:
- Lunch with Bruce Allen at Redskins Park, including private facility tour
- 2 tickets to Redskins vs. Giants on September 11, 2011, at FedExField including parking and pregame field passes
- an autographed Redskins helmet
- 2 VIP passes to training camp
- $100 Redskins gift card
- Free Redskins yearbook
All of that stuff is terrific, but it’s the lunch with Allen that puts the prize over the top. Not only is he the general manager of the Redskins — and, if my inbox is anything to go by, plenty of you would just want to get his ear because of that — but he’s also a remarkable repository of Redskins history. He remembers and can share enough first-hand stories about a remarkable variety of events, players, and coaches to make for twenty memorable lunches, let alone one.
To get your creative juices flowing, here are some photos of passionate Redskins fans through the years, culled from the Associated Press archives. I recalled some of these; others (the Redskins Uncle Sam, the terrifying Hogs) were new to me. All of them are worth looking at, and — with the exception of the last image — all would be appropriate for you to submit to the contest … if they were of you, of course. You can’t just submit other people’s pictures, especially not the AP’s. Read more »
