Lauver Returns To Survivors Celebration

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 15, 2013 – 5:18 pm

jauver

Tammy Lauver hung up the phone and didn’t know what to do. Stunned, she walked into her boss’ office and told him the news.

In December of 2011, a mammogram revealed a tumor in Lauver’s breast. The diagnosis was cancer. Lauver went into shock, but her boss’ words comforted her. He told her she would get through it.

She underwent a mastectomy in February 2012 and returned to work the same week she started chemotherapy. Lauver’s coworkers formed what they called the “lunch bunch,” taking turns spending their lunch hour with Lauver, making sure she ate regularly and cheering her through rough patches in her treatment.

Her life followed a routine circling around sickness. She appreciated the support, but it was exhausting always being a patient, someone needing tending.

Until October 2012, when an invitation to an All-Star Survivors Celebration at Redskins Park introduced her to a new of survivors celebrating the time they had on earth.  She spent quality time with receiver Josh Morgan, whom she called a big teddy bear.

In 2013, she knew she had to come back. The women needed her support.

This One Time at a Magazine Shoot…

Pierre Garcon wants a photo credit.

Garcon and Josh Morgan appeared in the men’s issue of Capitol File magazine as part of “13 of Washington’s most distinguished men in media, sports, gastronomy, and the arts.”

During a photo shoot at The Hays-Adams with Wizards forward Otto Porter and Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom, the photographer put pressure on Garcon to grab the winning shot.

“They basically had it set up like story time with Pierre,” Morgan said. “He really couldn’t think of anything to say.”

Like against Oakland, when his touchdown grab gave the Redskins their first lead of the season, Garcon made the crucial play.

2012 Unsung Heroes From Giants Rivalry

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 21, 2013 – 2:20 pm

line of scrimmage

In continuing to expand on the Redskins deeply rooted rivalry with the New York Giants, let’s take a look at some of the unsung heroes from the two tightly contested NFC East matchups in 2012.

While the Burgundy and Gold would go 5-1 against their division foes en route to their first division title since 1999, the one blemish on their record was a 27-23 loss at the Giants in Week 7.

If it weren’t for a late touchdown, I would be writing about how the Redskins went undefeated in the division play.

With the Redskins 17-16 victory on Monday Night Football in Week 13 in mind as well, let’s take a look at some of the performers who names may have not been on website “player of the game” nomination lists, but were still influential.

Reliving Season Series With The Giants

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 21, 2013 – 11:18 am

ReG5

Just minutes after the New York Giants won their second Super Bowl in five years last February, “experts” across the nations quickly latched onto the Giants wagon in belief that they were going to win the NFC East and so forth in 2012.

Shoot some were predicting a .500 record between the two squads-with the Redskins going 3-13 to the Giants’ 13-3.

This was well before the Redskins got Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris.

While the Burgundy and Gold’s lone loss in the NFC East last year was at the hands of Big Blue, the nail-bitter still had some memorable moments nonetheless.

So without further ado, here is a recap of the 2012 season series between the NFC East foes (with only one division champion in the end.)

Linebackers To Host Youth Football Camp

Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan form quite the duo on the outsides of a talent-laden linebacking unit. The two have combined for three Pro Bowl appearances, 45.5 sacks, and countless opponents who fear entering the duo’s territory.

While Redskins Nation is waiting for the moment Orakpo rejoins Kerrigan and the rest of the Burgundy and Gold, the youngest generation of footballers in the DMV will be able to catch a glimpse of the pair and gain unparalleled knowledge from the former first round picks at the Brian Orakpo/Ryan Kerrigan Football Camp this July.

Moss’ Jump Ball Catch No. 64 Of Top Plays

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 9, 2013 – 3:17 pm

A70G9535

Since 2005 the Redskins have seen about as much change as any team in the league.

Mike Shanahan is the third head coach during that time, Robert Griffin III has taken over the reins of the offense and firmly entrenched himself as a franchise corner piece, and weapons Fred Davis, Pierre Garcon, and Josh Morgan have been added to spread the threat across the field.

While there has plethora of new faces, one man has remained a constant figure despite all the moving pieces—wide receiver Santana Moss.

After being acquired in trade with the New York Jets, Moss instantly became the Redskins number one receiving threat.

Moss would lull defensive backs to sleep before whizzing pass them with his blazing speed.

Just when it looked like Moss’ time as an elite receiver was reaching its deadline No. 89 recorded a team-high eight touchdowns.

This touchdown against the Eagles, however, may have been the crème de la crème.

Morgan All Hands On Deck To End Cancer

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 8, 2013 – 4:11 pm

The Washington Redskins have been one of the biggest supporters of finding a cure for breast cancer.

Last October Chris Cooley hosted the fifth annual All-Star Survivors Celebration at Redskins Park, where 20 ladies or better yet “All-Stars”, were treated to a ladies day with No. 47 himself.

Earlier today Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, was recognized as the American Cancer Society Mother of the Year for her efforts to end breast cancer.

When Josh Morgan returned to the hometown that he kept so close to his heart even when he was across the country in San Francisco, he made an effort to reach out in the local community to touch the lives of his fellow DMV citizens.

Morgan has spent countless hours in classrooms speaking with the youngest of Redskins Nation and was the grand marshal for the Cherry Blossom Festival—a Washington, D.C. exclusive—taking in the sights and sounds of downtown that were reminiscent of his childhood days.

Now, he is ready to take those same streets again to end breast cancer once and for all.

Garcon’s Elusive Touchdown Is A Top Play

During the 2012 offseason the Washington Redskins reloaded their offense with several big play, quick-strike weapons on the offensive side of the football.

When free agency’s flood gates were unlocked, the Redskins bolstered their wide receiver core by adding the Super Bowl experienced Pierre Garcon and homegrown talent Josh Morgan.

Then during the annual NFL Draft, they acquired soon-to-be record setting rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris.

Not a bad quartet to repackage your assault around.

In their regular season debut together, the Griffin III-Garcon connection struck early, torching the New Orleans Saints defense for an 88-yard touchdown in the first quarter that was stamped off by the now internationally famous “Griffining” celebration.

Then later in the season the duo struck gold again, only this time the whole country witnessed their magnificence.

Multifaceted Reed Added To Offense

With the 85th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins focused on adding to their elite offense with the selection of Jordan Reed out of Florida.

For weeks, mock drafts predicted that the Redskins would zero in on the defensive side of the pigskin with their first few picks.

It did not matter if it was a corner,safety, or linebacker; it was just the trendy thing to do.

Well the trendy read-option attack that Washington ignited in 2012 has just added another weapon to the arsenal in the form of a 6’2″ 236 pound athlete that has the versatility that head coach Mike Shanahan will love. Reed could be a serious threat when quarterback Robert Griffin III is rolling out on play action.

According to his NFL.com draft profile, Reed can be used at multiple positions ranging from tight end to running back.

Awesome.

Check out this highlight package of the newest Redskin.
