Wounded Warriors Take Down NFL Alumni

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 16, 2013 – 5:58 pm

wounded warrior

For Tim Lang, just tossing the pigskin meant so much more than it used to.

Lang planted on his prosthetic right leg and hurled a few passes into a secondary of former professional football players Saturday as his Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team beat a squad made up of Redskins and NFL alumni in a flag football game at Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, Va.

“This is such a huge, significant step for so many of us guys,” said Lang, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps 124 Charlie Co. in Fallujah, Iraq.

“It’s a declaration that we’re okay. We’re all better. We’re not broke. We’re no longer even challenged. We’ve accepted our new life and we’re doing the things we used to do now. We’re loving life now.”

Marv Levy Talks Redskins Coaches

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 12, 2013 – 3:31 pm

Levy

Back in 1970, you didn’t need $2,000 to make Marv Levy say “wow!”

In an interview with ESPN 980, Levy talked about the $1,500 raise George Allen used to lure him away from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Allen became head coach of the Redskins in 1971, and Levy followed him to Washington for two seasons before coaching stints in Canada, Kansas City and Buffalo, where he led the Bills to four straight AFC championships.

The Hall-of-Fame coach appeared on the Sports Fix on Monday to talk about coaching special teams, evaluate Washington’s current head coach and reminisce about Allen.

The Football Exploits Of “Woodchuck” Welmas

(Library of Congress)

November is Native American Heritage month. Throughout the month, we’ll look back at stories of interest.

On such story is the life and football exploits of Philip “Woodchuck” Welmas.

Welmas befriended the great Jim Thorpe through the football program at Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania. Decades later, the Washington Redskins would host training camp at nearby Dickinson College under Hall-of-Fame coaches Vince Lombardi, George Allen and Joe Gibbs.

Welmas went on to play professional football in the early days of the NFL in 1923.

In the picture below, he poses in his squad photo for the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in 1913.

No Matter Who Was At Helm, Smith Thrived

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 6, 2013 – 1:00 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Over the next few weeks we will be looking back on some Redskins greats for their heroics on the field as well as off of it. Today, Redskins.com intern Jamie Lockie looks back at the long career of Jerry Smith. 

One of the most recognizable and popular Redskins players of his era, Jerry Smith was knowingly one of the best football players around.

Thirsty six years ago this season, he’s remains a player who vastly improved the Redskins’ image and still remains one of the greatest in Burgundy and Gold history and remains one of only 44 in franchise history, coaches and officials included, in the Ring of Fame.

Who Makes Cut For Redskins’ Rushmore?

Redskins fans unite to form the best fanbase not only the NFL but across the entire sports spectrum. That’s obvious.

No matter if it is a Robert Griffin III dazzling 76-yard touchdowna Darrell Green punt return, or John Riggins barreling over the Miami Dolphins determined to bring our Nation’s Capital its first Lombardi Trophy, Redskins Nation basks in the glory of the franchise’s success together.

What isn’t so clear, though, is every fan’s thoughts on the four greatest Redskins. Whether it is at the water cooler at work or at your local bar, debates rage over who are the best in Redskins history.

Put all the banter aside and let your voice be heard as to who deserves the prestigious honor of being on the Redskins’ Mt. Rushmore.

Throwback Thursday: Legendary Coaches

With OTAs officially underway this week, the Washington Redskins are preparing to bring a second straight NFC East crown to the Nation’s Capital behind head coach Mike Shanahan.

Thursday afternoon trivia question: When was the last time the Burgundy and Gold won back-to-back division crowns?

Answer: 1983-1984 when Joe Gibbs led the Redskins to 25 wins during that span and a Super Bowl appearance.

To pay homage to the greatest teachers/mentors/coaches in NFL history, ESPN’s Rick Reilly has sifted through league annals to give his thoughts on the 20 greatest  to ever call X’s and O’s.

Three Redskins greats have been ranked as follows:

Memory Lane For Bruce & George Allen 2

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 2, 2012 – 10:14 am

See Part One

Our walk down Memory Lane for Bruce and George Allen continues today as the brothers get into an era of Redskins history they know very well.

That’s because it’s the era when their father, George Allen — or as their kids call him, “Grandcoach” — turned Washington into one of the more successful teams in the NFL.

George, who lived by the mantra “the future is now,” was a 2002 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee who compiled a 116-47-5 regular season record as the Redskins’ head coach from 1971 through 1977.

Memory Lane For Bruce & George Allen

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 1, 2012 – 12:25 pm

The Washington Redskins’ annual Homecoming Weekend festivities get underway in a couple of days, so who better to take a walk down Redskins memory lane than two sons of one of the greatest coaches in franchise history?

Bruce Allen — the current general manager of the Redskins — and George Allen — the former governor of Virginia — took a stroll down the “Hail To The Redskins Walk” yesterday at Redskins Park, and Redskins.com was there with our cameras.

The Allen’s father, George, who lived by the mantra “the future is now,” was a 2002 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee who compiled a 116-47-5 regular season record as the Redskins’ head coach from 1971 through 1977.

Happy Belated Birthday To Coach Pardee

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 20, 2012 – 4:38 pm

AP Image

Lost in the shuffle of yesterday afternoon was the celebration of former Redskins head coach Jack Pardee’s 76th birthday.  Pardee was one of the famous “Ram-skins,” brought to Washington to be part of head coach George Allen’s “Over the Hill Gang.”

During the final two years of his playing career, he started 17 games for the Redskins at outside linebacker and tallied 5 interceptions, one fumble recovery, and a touchdown on defense.

After his playing days were over, he returned to the gridiron on the sidelines, accepting a job in the Nation’s Capital as the head coach of the World Football League’s Washington Ambassadors.  The team would later move to Norfolk and retain the name, before moving to Florida and becoming the Blazers.  After one championship season, he was hired as the Chicago Bears head coach, before returning to the lead the Redskins in 1978.

Pardee might be best remembered for being the head coach of the team directly before Joe Gibbs, but he deserves credit for assembling players that would contribute to Gibbs’s championships. Read more »
