Hail! And Atmospheric Miscommunication

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 9, 2011 – 11:16 am

I’m no meteorologist (I just play one on gameday), but since the beginning of the season it has been gorgeous on most Tuesday days off, and it has rained Redskins and Cowboys on almost every Wednesday.

As a fan of fair weather (not a fair-weather fan), it would be comically predictable if it weren’t so depressingly predictable.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, Ashburn, Va. was hit by 3.1 inches of rain, which is approximately 31-times the historical average for that date.  As a result, the Redskins were forced to practice off-site, which was expressed to players and coaches upon their arrival, early that morning.

In this week’s edition of Ben Ceccareli’s Hail! comic, he ponders the possibility of players hearing the news wrong: Read more »

Hail! Revisits The Helu Hurdle

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 2, 2011 – 9:53 am

If the Redskins were looking for a spark in the running game, then just call Roy Helu “flint and steel.”

The rookie back had a career-high 30 touches for 162 yards and touchdown.  None of his touches were more important than his third-and-three play where he he caught the pitch, hurdled, bulldozed and sprinted 28 yards to paydirt, starting the improbable fourth-quarter comeback.

In this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic, we find out how Helu was able to levitate over his would-be tacklers:

Hail! Interviews Landry’s Achilles Tendon

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 25, 2011 – 11:03 am

Redskins safety LaRon Landry’s Achilles tendon has been a cause for concern in Redskins Nation, as the one-man wrecking crew has been sidelined in three games this season.

Last week, Landry said all of the right things: he’s ready, he feels good, but whether or not he plays is up to coach [this week, he has been full participation in both practices].  And of course:

According to this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic, his Achilles tendon feels pretty much the same way:

Hail! Finds The Solution To ‘Turfgate 2.0′

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 18, 2011 – 10:43 am

Yesterday, we looked back at the synthetic drama that came out of game one against the Cowboys this season.  Now that Cowboys center Phil Costa and Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen have solved their barking differences, “Barkgate” is in the past.

In this week’s Hail! comic, Ben Ceccarelli figures out how to eliminate “Turfgate” for Sunday’s game as well:

Hail! And The Running Back Rotation

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 11, 2011 – 10:48 am

When it comes to game planning, head coach Mike Shanahan tells you up front that he won’t tell you, he tells you nothing, and then he reminds you that he didn’t tell you anything.

I’d hate to play him in cards.

But what if it wasn’t a complicated web of secrecy?  What if it was just a game of chance?  Ben Ceccarelli explores that possibility in this week’s edition of the Hail! comic.

For the record, I’d love to see Lorenzo Alexander at running back:

Hail! Celebrates ‘Hank Time’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 4, 2011 – 8:26 am

Now that Redskins rookie receiver Leonard Hankerson has caught his first NFL pass, the monkey is off his back, and “Hank Time” has arrived in Washington.

It’s kind of like Daylight Savings, but exciting for more than one weekend a year.

This week, Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic captures Hankerson’s enthusiasm after last week’s performance.  It’s Hank Time!

Hail! Finds Some Farmyard Amusement

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 28, 2011 – 1:37 pm

Cut the whole team? Forfeit the rest of the games?  Hire replacement players?  Move the team to L.A.?

These were all suggestions made following last week’s loss, and this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic reminds us all to take a step back…deep breath…and remember that it’s only Week 8:

Hail! Prepares For The John Beck Era

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 21, 2011 – 9:47 am

With all of the intense media coverage of the Redskins quarterback change, it’s time for a light-hearted perspective.

John Beck takes the field on Sunday for the first time in regular season action since his rookie season in 2007.  For the football heads and devout followers of the Redskins, he’s a familiar entity.  But when No. 12 takes the field on Sunday, it will be a new experience for many.

And as this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic illustrates, he may need some introductions:

Hail! Discovers ‘Landry-Vision’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 14, 2011 – 9:47 am

Redskins safety LaRon Landry is a meat and potatoes kind of guy.  Literally.

With that in mind, this week’s edition of Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic takes a look inside Landry’s mind as he prepares for this Sunday’s game against the Eagles: Read more »

Hail! Looks At Shanahan’s ‘Honor’ System

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 7, 2011 – 9:30 am

Earlier this week, we learned that head coach Mike Shanahan wants his players to run several times over the bye week, to stay in the flow of the football season.  Of course, he can’t follow players around the country and make sure that they make their runs, so he suggested the “God was watching.”

And it was good.

This morning, Ben Ceccarelli’s Hail! comic has an explanation for how Shanahan is able to trust his players to do what they’re supposed to do on their five days off:
