There’s having a good time during the summer with friends and then there’s allowing Redskins legend John Riggins to show you a great time.

Riggins, a first-team All-Pro in 1983 after a whopping 24 touchdowns and the man who ran straight up the Miami Dolphins’ gut to give the Redskins their first Super Bowl victory, hosts a 30-minute show on CSN Washington called “Riggo on the Range.”

As described on Riggoontherange.com, the show “follows John and his guests around the country in pursuit of extraordinary hunting and outdoor adventures. In an added twist, John retires to the kitchen to show the audience how to prepare a gourmet meal using his prey. The combination of John’s colorful personality, his life-long love of the outdoors and his passion for the culinary arts makes Riggo on the Range different from anything else on TV.”

His passion for the great outdoors was on full display in a recent episode with former Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs.

On Sunday, Washington Redskins fan and Joe Gibbs Racing’s own, Denny Hamlin, took home his first victory of the season at Talladega Superspeedway.

Staving off a furious rush by several drivers as the checkered flag drew near, Hamlin crossed the finish line first and celebrated his victory on the tri-oval with the thee-time Super Bowl winning coach in Victory Lane.

Just eight days before assuring himself a spot in NASCAR’s postseason, Hamlin got the chance to meet current Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

It wasn’t the first time, however, that he got to snap a photo with a Redskin.

What Doug Williams Learned From Gibbs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 7, 2014 – 4:10 pm

Doug Williams is feeling lucky like it’s 1986.

The personnel executive told Larry Michael he never thought he would be back with the team he led to victory in Super Bowl XXII. So when Williams and Bruce Allen agreed on a position in February, he said he felt just like he did when he got a phone call from Joe Gibbs offering him a job as the back-up quarterback in D.C.

“Things just worked out,” Williams said on “Redskins Nation. “And I’ll tell you what, it’s one of the best things that happened to me. It’s kind of like 1986 over for me, to be able to come back under different circumstances.” Read more »

What Joe Gibbs Learned From 2013

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 31, 2014 – 3:49 pm

(AP)

Joe Gibbs was like a lot of Redskins fans.

A 10-6 record, an NFC East championship and a playoff berth in 2012 made the three-time Super Bowl champion expect continued success for Washington.

In an interview with Larry Michael Friday afternoon on Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row, Gibbs said a 3-13 season in 2013 reinforced a simple message. Read more »

Joe Gibbs Gives Colbert A Pep Talk

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 30, 2014 – 10:14 am

(Comedy Central)

(Comedy Central)

After appearing on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central Tuesday night, Hall-of-Fame Redskins coach Joe Gibbs returned Wednesday to light a fire under the cable TV host (or maybe just to get his ring back).

Gibbs delivered a pep talk from a script Stephen Colbert asked him to read. The address had all the makings of a classic speech: a republican president,  a coming of age book for young ladies and SurvivorRead more »

Stephen Colbert Stole Joe Gibbs’ Super Bowl Ring

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 10:19 am

(Comedy Central)

(Comedy Central)

The life of Joe Gibbs in 2014 mostly consists of ministry and race cars. Ministry, race cars and cable television appearances with satirically conservative pundits.

The head coach of Washington’s Super Bowl XVII, XXII and XXVI championship teams appeared on “The Colbert Report” Tuesday night to talk football and assure Colbert  that Chuck Knoll possessed no divine advantage. The two-time coach of the Redskins gave the franchise a nice shout-out on national television.

“I think it’s the greatest town to coach in,” Gibbs told Colbert. “That is the greatest sports franchise I think in the world.”

Colbert, who was born in Washington, said he is a huge Redskins fan, maybe too huge. Figuring Gibbs had a Super Bowl ring to spare, he asked to play with one before pulling the okey doke on Gibbs.

Once the cameras turned off, Colbert probably returned the hardware without a fuss. But I like to imagine Gibbs ripping Colbert and telling him to hit the showers before yanking his ring out of the host’s suit pocket.

Watch how Colbert steals Gibbs’ ring along with the coach’s estimation of Colbert’s muscle mass in the clip from the show.

A Chaplain Brought Mark Brunell To Washington, And The QB Saved Joe Gibbs’ Life

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 10:03 am

(AP)

The first man to recruit quarterback Mark Brunell to Washington was not Joe Gibbs or a front office executive.

During an interview with “The Sports Fix” on ESPN980, Thom Loverro asked Brunell the full story of how he was traded from the Jaguars to the Redskins before the 2004 season. Brunell told the host he knew was on the outs in Jacksonville when the Jaguars spent a first-round draft pick on Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich. His first indication the Redskins were interested came from an unlikely source.

“Actually (I) got word through a friend of mine, who was at that time the chaplain of the Washington Redskins, Brett Fuller,” Brunell said. “And he had mentioned that Joe Gibbs was interested. Immediately, I got excited… I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Just the opportunity to play for him was  a dream come true for me.”

Joe Gibbs: ‘Grind Them Into The Ground’

The winningest coach in Redskins history will be watching the Cowboys game from the owner’s suite on Sunday.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs directed Washington to three Super Bowl championships and was named NFL Coach of the Year three times. In 16 years as head coach of the Redskins, covering two stints from 1981-1992 and 2004-2007, Gibbs had a 154-94 record and posted a .500 record (16-16) against Dallas.

I caught up with Gibbs at FedExField about 80 minutes before kickoff against the Cowboys.  Read more »

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.
