Dexter Manley, Gary Clark, Ken Harvey and Ricky Ervins certainly gave it their all each and every time they took the field for the Washington Redskins, so they were more than happy to spend some time on Saturday with hundreds of locals willing to give something, themselves.

The four Redskins alums were special guests at Saturday’s Inova Blood Donor Service’s blood drive at the team’s indoor practice facility in Loudoun County, Va.

Those who came out to give blood on Saturday were treated to photos, autographs and smiling faces from the former players, who talked about the importance of such an event.

“Donating blood is something that you don’t think about until you need it and sometimes you don’t realize how valuable it is until you need it,” Harvey told Redskins.com. “Hopefully no one does, but if you do, these people are real heroes because they’re taking the time to donate blood.”

Series History: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 29, 2013 – 1:15 pm

Pierre Garcon


The football spun tightly in the end zone. Pierre Garçon’s hands jackhammered up and down and beat his chest after he put a little English on the dancing pigskin.

With Garçon’s fourth-quarter touchdown catch and Kai Forbath’s extra point, the Redskins took a 17-16 lead on the Giants. On Dec. 3, 2012, Robert Griffin III ran for 72 yards on five carries and notched a win in his Monday Night Football debut. Washington split the season series with New York and moved to .500 for the first time since falling in a 3-6 hole.  Read more »

Art Monk, Gary Clark Left Off Best Duos

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 11, 2013 – 1:11 pm

For those of you who grew up during the Redskins’ decade of dominance, you most assuredly remember the days of Art Monk, Joe Theismann, John Riggins, Darrell Green and countless others  leading the franchise to the summit of the National Football League.

Speaking of Monk, you may also recall his long overdue enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Monk finished his illustrious 14-year career with over 12,000 yards and 65 touchdowns—numbers that put him in the upper echelon of receivers to play the game.

Well just five years after his nearly decade long wait into Canton, Monk along with Gary Clark find themselves snubbed of recognition once again as they aren’t on NFL.com’s best receiving tandems of all-time list.

These raw numbers should have them reconsidering their list.

Play 60 Punt, Pass, Kick Competition

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 4, 2011 – 11:53 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The football action started early this morning at FedExField, as the Redskins held early morning tryouts of 6-to-15-year-olds this morning, seeing who had the strongest arms and legs in Redskins Nation.

Talk about early scouting.  Not many football prospects have their moms and dads drive them to the tryout.

The annual NFL Play 60 “Punt, Pass & Kick” competition was held at midfield this morning, with local competition winners from as far as eight hours away making the trip to Washington.

Kaylen Cales, 7, and Ashten Hinkle, 13, are actually sisters from Capron, Va., and competed today in their respective age groups.  This is Ashten’s fourth year competing, and according to her proud poppa, she’s won it twice. Read more »

Redskins Runway Owns The Night

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 3, 2011 – 11:39 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

At last night’s third annual “Walk This Way” fashion event in support of Becky’s Fund, members of your Washington Redskins cut up the runway in support of domestic violence education and prevention.

DeAngelo Hall, Brian Orakpo, Anthony Armstrong and Gary Clark tried their hands at modeling, while Tim Hightower offered his support from the sidelines.

Yours truly was in attendance to catch the action and offer poorly-informed critiques.

Armstrong kicked off the quartet with a simple, stoic approach:

Gary Clark represented The Posse with a dapper gray suit and a big grin, earning a huge applause from the crowd.  It’s great to know that the man is still a legend in this town, 20 years later:

I got a chance to speak with Hall before he went backstage, and he talked about the importance of preventing domestic abuse.

“It’s a cause that I think needs a lot more attention, nationally, and I jumped at the opportunity to get involved,” he said.  “Clinton Portis brought it to my attention last year, and I immediately jumped on board.  This year, it was a no-brainer.  I grabbed a couple of my teammates to come down with me.”

Knowing that Hall can clean up well, from seeing him on road trips and the Welcome Home Luncheon, I asked him if he would be strutting the catwalk as well.

“Yeah, yeah, unfortunately I am,” he said, modestly.  “They asked us to come out and do something, and we had to come down and give them a little something.  I’m gonna show off a little something that they have made up for me.”

Entrance music?  Right said Fred?

“I dunno man, I don’t think I got to pick my own,” he said with a laugh.  “If I had my pick, it would definitely be something hot, but I’ll make it work with whatever they put on.  I’ve walked a time or two before, so hopefully I don’t look too crazy.”

Here’s the grizzle fashion vet:

And then there was the catwalk rookie, Orakpo.  Orakpo has never blinked on third down, never found a left tackle he couldn’t beat, and never left a punishing hit undelivered.  But backstage, he solicited some pointers for the fashionistas, with pretty good results.

Here he is, rocking the scarf and flashing the open jacket:

It was a great night for the Redskins and fashion, and it was done in the name of a cause that needs champions.  The mission of Becky’s Fund is to foster awareness, encourage advocacy, promote activism, and create support for the victims of domestic violence.  One of every three women is affected by it, and the runway last night featured three doors to symbolize this statistics.

With the funds raised from the event, Becky’s Fund will be launching an unprecedented program, endDV, that will fundamentally alter the way domestic and dating violence resources are provided.  endDV is a social and mobile platform combining technology and digital media to raise awareness while empowering victims and community members with the necessary tools and knowledge to address and prevent abusive situations.

Follow the initiative on Twitter (@EndDV), support Becky’s Fund, and never be afraid to do what’s right.

Redskins Hand Out Annual P.O.Y. Awards

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 24, 2011 – 8:52 pm

While the Redskins were very much focused on the upcoming 2011 season at today’s “Welcome Home Luncheon,” there was time to reflect on last season’s accomplishments.

Former Redskins great Gary Clark introduced last year’s offensive player of the year, wide receiver Santana Moss.  He said that his daughter describes Moss as “Sexy Cool,” and recalled that people had once compared Moss to him, “except better-looking and a step faster.”

Here was the Moss tribute video:
