Wednesday marks one week since DeSean Jackson officially signed with the Redskins. From that time on,  the deep threat’s recruitment, character and potential have all been hot topics in Washington. Here’s a sampling of what his head coach, his new teammates and a few Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks have said about the latest addition to the receiving corps.

Joe Theismann On “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 3, 2014 – 10:47 am

(FOX)

For two decades, Joe Theismann avoided watching film from the gruesome Monday night of Nov. 18, 1985.

But after the conclusion of Super Bowl XLVIII, he participated in a nationally televised gag calling back to the time Lawrence Taylor broke Theismann’s leg on Monday Night Football.

The quarterback made a cameo on Sunday night’s episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” the winner of the Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical. Theismann played a version of himself willing to part with a vast sum of money to win an auction for the right to stuff Adam Sandler’s sock in Andy Samberg’s mouth. A look into Theismann’s IMDB page reveals he has also played himself on “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” and “Wheel of Fortune.”

In an interview with FOX, the winning quarterback of Super Bow XVII said he’s a big fan of the show, which features another former Redskins player.

Samberg was happy to have Theismann on the show.

“He’s someone I’ve been a fan of for a long time, ever since I was a kid,” Samberg said. “It was really cool to meet him, I think especially given that this was the Super Bowl episode, we have a football legend in the episode.”

Joe Theismann Relives Postseason Glories And Explains SI Cover

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 28, 2014 – 6:00 am

(AP)

The second-to-last game of the 1982 season will always be the most memorable of Joe Theismann’s career.

Theismann told the  “The Sports Fix” on ESPN 980 Monday that beating Dallas in the NFC Championship game was more exciting than taking the field in Super Bowl XVII.

“People ask me what the most memorable game was of my career, and I talk about the NFC championship game against the Dallas Cowboys in our stadium with our fans,” Theismann told Kevin Sheehan and Thom Loverro.

“Everybody was pounding away at those aluminum seats, and the ground was shaking beneath your feet. If that doesn’t stir your emotions, I don’t know what does.” Read more »

Jay Gruden Makes His Own Name

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 8, 2014 – 4:30 pm

 

He’s not the most famous man in the NFL to bear his surname, but his full name rests among greats of the game’s second cousin.

It’s flanked by Hunkie Cooper, George LaFrance, Sherdrick Bonner and Sylvester Bembery. Kurt Warner, too.

Arena Football League heroes have better names than any Ivy League lacrosse roster. Jay Gruden ranks No. 4 among them.

The Redskins confirmed Wednesday the team interviewed Gruden for the head coaching vacancy in Washington. Gruden has coached with the Bengals and the Buccaneers, but he won more championships in Tampa than  his older brother Jon Gruden would.

Joe Theismann: Robert Griffin III “The Focal Point And The Central Point’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 2, 2014 – 2:30 pm

While I was wasting three hours visiting four grocery stores on an unfruitful wild legume chase for black eyed-peas Wednesday, Joe Theismann was talking to ESPN’s Mike & Mike about the Redskins.

Theismann detailed the primary area of development he’d like to see from Robert Griffin III and listed his top two head coach prospects for Washington, one of which is no longer available.

[Read Theismann's goals for RG3]

Before detailing how Griffin III can improve, Theismann asserted the Baylor product’s importance to the franchise and came out in favor of letting the quarterback sit out of last three games of 2013. Read more »

Joe Theismann Thinks Team ‘Can Contend’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on July 9, 2013 – 11:57 am

Quarterback Joe Theismann knows a thing or two about being a champion. He is also an expert on overcoming adversity.

For those of you who were lucky enough to watch Theismann toss 160 touchdowns through his single bar facemask, you remember (hopefully) that No. 7 didn’t break in with the burgundy and gold behind center at first.

Unless you consider punt returning as “behind center”.

In 1978, his third with the team, head coach Jack Pardee appointed Theismann as incumbent Billy Kilmer’s replacement. Four seasons later, the former Notre Dame star along with backfield partner John Riggins led the Redskins to the first of three Lombardi Trophies.

Now, 30 years removed from that amazing season, the two-time Pro Bowler sees a similar fate for the 2013 Redskins—and it all starts with the quarterback.

The Evolution Of ‘Wildest Facemasks’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 13, 2013 – 11:48 am

(AP Images)

For decades football facemasks remained relatively conformed in terms of the position that you played. Often, offensive lineman wore full facemasks to protect their eyes while running backs would sport a sleeker two bar look to complement their position duties (you wouldn’t want a view of bars blocking your vision).

Nowadays though with the NFL’s increased awareness on ensuring the safest game possible game, players are sporting quite the elaborate facemasks regardless of where they line up on the field.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen for example debuted this facemask last year to not only protect his head and neck from getting jarred by opponents, but because it simple looked ‘cool’.

NFL.com released a gallery of the “wildest facemasks” in the league and per the norm a Redskin is found.

Jones Made One Last Point Before Retiring

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 4, 2013 – 1:23 pm

(AP Image)

On Monday, NFL Hall of Famer and former Washington Redskin David “Deacon” Jones passed away at the age of 74.

While Jones will mostly be remembered for his contributions to coining the term “sack” and eventually forcing the NFL to make it an official stat (maybe by telling them he’d take them down too), his contributions to the game extended well beyond smacking quarterbacks around at will.

Jones bullied offensive lineman to the tune of 173.5 sacks, but what few will point out from the 6-5, 272 pound lineman’s playing days is his flawless extra point percentage.
