Fred Davis Has Fancy Footwear

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 7, 2014 – 4:30 pm


Fred Davis is a self-professed shoe head.

That means he’s into shoes, not that he wears them on his head. On second thought, I don’t really know what Fred is into in his spare time. I have no evidence he wears shoes on his head, but I’ll keep that possibility afloat.

Anyway, this week we’re rolling out some of the best interviews from “Redskins Late Night.” In the first installment, comedian Chris Paul asks Davis about his baller Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers and how healthy he felt after the 2013 preseason.

London Fletcher converses with veteran Kedric Golston

Before he took the podium at Redskins Park and announced he was “99 percent” sure he would retire at the end of the 2013 season, 16-year veteran London Fletcher participated in an indoor practice.

The linebacker cracked jokes with Darryl Tapp during stretching and had a conversation with Kedric Golston while the special teams units drilled.

What Went Right / Wrong At Atlanta

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 16, 2013 – 12:41 pm

The Redskins turned the ball over seven times in a 27-26 road loss to the Falcons, and Kirk Cousins took responsibility for the defeat. But the Redskins had a chance to win at the end thanks to the quarterback’s three touchdown passes.

Let’s take a deeper look at what went right and wrong Sunday at the Georgia Dome.

Highlight: Alfred Morris rips off a 37-yard run.

What went right: A pancake block on the safety.

-The Redskins line up in a power running set with fullback Darrel Young in the backfield and tight end Logan Paulsen outside of the right tackle.
-The Falcons bring five men to the line with a linebacker outside of left tackle Trent Williams, leaving only two linebackers up the middle.
-The offensive line executes two successful double teams. Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger bumps Will Montgomery off of Corey Peters, freeing the center to seal off the backside backer.
-Chris Chester handles Peria Jerry, allowing Tyler Polumbus to block Sean Weatherspoon.
-Alfred Morris patiently follows his fullback through the hole between Chester and Paulsen.
-Young blasts through rookie safety Zeke Motta, and Morris has ample room to run. Read more »

Cousins’ ATL Experience Starts With TD

Very rarely does a second-year quarterback, who is the backup mind you, get to the opportunity to play a good chunk of the snaps against a team outside the division in back-to-back seasons.

Then again, most teams don’t have a backup like Kirk Cousins, NFL.com’s No. 1 rated backup.

His unusual situation will pick back up on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Yesterday it was announced that Cousins would start the final three games of the season, the first of which will take place in the spacious Georgia Dome.

For his nascent NFL career, the former Michigan State star has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 573 yards and one touchdown.

The first touchdown stupefied Atlanta’s defensive backfield, as his 77-yard connection with Mr. Consistency (Santana Moss) was a beautiful concoction of precision, power and electricity that sent pulse waves through a sellout crowd at FedExField.

Time to remember the moment:

Fred Davis Could Contribute Monday Night

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 22, 2013 – 1:57 pm


For the past three days, three members of the tight end group took added reps at practice.

Rookie Jordan Reed, who’s tied for the team lead with three touchdown catches and ranks second on the club in receptions (45) and yards receiving (499) , has been sitting out with a concussion.

If Reed is unable to play on Monday Night, a spot could open up for Fred Davis, who has been listed as inactive five games in a row. Both Mike and Kyle Shanahan have been complimentary of the tight end this week. Read more »

Above everything else that takes place on Sunday, the Washington Redskins need a win. The Redskins can achieve that goal with superb play from all three facets: offense, defense and special teams.

To get a complete, 60-minute effort though, the Redskins will need their leaders to step up. Said leaders could hit a few individual milestones this afternoon at FedExField.

Take a look at what marks could be hit below.

Week 7 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 17, 2013 – 10:52 am

The Washington Redskins locker room has continued to remained calm, not allowing the emotions of a 1-4 start get the best of them. You on the other hand sir/ma’am Fantasy Football Coach are probably freaking out right now if you’re in a similar situation in your league.

Easy on the nail-biting, too.

Anyway, the offense is facing a tough task straight in the face on Sunday. Off by a few inches against the Cowboys resulted in incompletions. Off by a few inches against the Bears and interceptions will become the name of the game.

With Seahawks-Cardinals kicking off in a few hours, check out this week’s fantasy football rankings/projections roundup. As for my opponent this weekend, you can skip everything below.

Week 6 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 10, 2013 – 10:54 am

Sunday night’s matchup could be an offensive shootout between Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys.

I don’t want to give the Cowboys too much credit now because there’s no need to go overboard after five games of the season–especially with them–but they are a top 10 offense at the moment.

Having said that, if the Redskins duplicate either performance against the arch-rival from a season ago then there will be a lot of smiling Redskins fans come Monday morning–and a lot of overly exuberant fantasy owners whose come-from-behind victory started with their decision to put a Redskin in their starting lineup.

I won’t take full credit, but I hope this fantasy projections and ranking roundup at least helps in the decision process unless you’re the owner of SkinsRule28. This week is mine!

From College To Pros: Suh Connections

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 19, 2013 – 2:26 pm

In the weeks leading up to the 2010 NFL Draft, Ndamukong Suh became a certainty for the second overall pick held by the Detroit Lions. The St. Louis Rams were a lock to acquire Heisman winning quarterback Sam Bradford and  Lions head coach Jim Schwartz wanted to make another big splash after nabbing University of Georgia gunslinger Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick in 2009.

They did just that as the first domino fell as expected to St. Louis and they were able to pick their guy—a 6-4, 307 pound defensive lineman who had just won AP College Player of the Year, was a unanimous All-American and voted as the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards recipient.

While Sunday will mark only his second career NFL game against the Washington Redskins, he isn’t an unfamiliar face to seven guys on the offensive side of the pigskin that have some sort of connection to Suh from college ball days.

Who are they?
