What Went Right / Wrong: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 31, 2013 – 1:26 pm

The last game of the 2013 season was a wet and miserable 20-6 loss to the New York Giants. The Redskins defense limited an offense playing without it’s starting quarterback and top two receivers in the second half, but the offense could not score a touchdown.

Let’s take a look back at what went right and wrong at New York.


Highlight: Reed Doughty intercepts Curtis Painter in the end zone.

What went right: The captain in coverage.

-The Giants line up in a shotgun set with a running back in protection, a tight end and an H-back on the left and a wide receiver on the right.
-The Redskins show their base 3-4 alignment and initially rush four defenders.
-Three linebackers are singled up in man coverage. Rob Jackson shadows Bear Pascoe , and Perry Riley Jr. eyes Peyton Hillis before adding pressure.
-London Fletcher, in the last game of a 16-year career, covers tight end Brandon Myers.
-Barry Cofield splits a double team and pressures Painter into throwing. Read more »

Volunteers Drive Harvest Feast

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 23, 2013 – 4:19 pm


A bald man with a blinding smile wore a cream and burgundy letter jacket and embraced the hungry people as they passed through the concourse, clapping their shoulders and whispering personal messages.

More than 3,500 families from Prince George’s County arrived at FedExField Saturday to load up on armfuls of popcorn and potatoes and carts full of onions and canned goods at the 11th annual Bank of America Harvest Feast presented by Ryan Homes.

At the final stop, where gleaming frozen turkeys awaited those in need, Donald Hoffman waited. Read more »

From FedExField To The Maternity Ward

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 5, 2013 – 3:59 pm

Aldrick Robinson


Three weeks ago against Chicago, Aldrick Robinson raced 45 yards down the field, spun his back toward a defender and scooped a pass into his stomach to score a touchdown.

The wide receiver’s impeccable timing runs in the family.

After a 30-24 overtime win over the Chargers on Sunday, Robinson cleaned up, got dressed and drove directly to a maternity ward. His wife, Bianca, was a couple hours away from going into labor with the couple’s first child.

Josh Wilson Claims DeMatha

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 18, 2013 – 12:41 pm



In a five-second window, cornerback Josh Wilson told 19.6 million people about being a product of a place.

The player introductions on NBC’s Sunday Night Football were never that serious. Some players state their college. Some get creative. Texans safety Ed Reed this year said, “I was born to do this.”

Wilson’s avatar appeared on screen last Sunday and gave a shout out to DeMatha Catholic High School  in Hyattsville, Md. He wasn’t being cute.

Wilson lost his father before he made it to DeMatha. He wanted to respect the men that picked up the slack and tolerated an honor student missing classes on tough days to ask them questions.

Bill McGregor, who coached football for a quarter century at DeMatha, former defensive backs coach Bryce Bevill and track and field coach Anthony Bryant all put their stamp on Wilson.

“Those guys changed my life, made me become a man, made me understand that hard work was what was going to get me to this level that I’m at now,” Wilson said.

DeMatha has had a major impact on my life.”

VIDEO: Experts Weigh in; Wilson’s History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 13, 2013 – 4:36 pm


Much of the sound waves surrounding Cowboys week at Redskins Park concerned the team’s level of respect for Tony Romo, the need to come out of the bye week with a bang and of course, thoughts from past and present on the contentious relationship between the two teams.

On “This Week @ The Park” with CSN Washington’s Rich Tandler, Son of Washington’s Evan Redmon and Brian Tinsman from Reskins.com, the experts reflected on Washington’s mindset going to Dallas and brought us Maryland native Josh Wilson’s thoughts about growing up a Redskins fan. Wilson reflected on the rivalry as a life-long supporter of the franchise.

“It’s always been a big rivalry,” Wilson said. “I’ve been a part of some big ones with Pittsburgh and the Ravens and Dallas and the Cowboys. Growing up as a fan here, I know this definitely means something. My first game I ever went to was a Dallas (vs) Redskins game, a Monday nighter. I got to see the Redskins win that one, so I’ll take that.”

The show airs Thursday mornings at 9:30am on CSNWashington.com. Below you can see what Wilson had to say about the atmosphere at his first game and more on Cowboys week.

Players Looking Both Behind And Ahead

Well it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that this franchise is possibly on the verge of something big and last night was living proof that this team’s depth is unquestionably as deep as any of the other 31 NFL franchises.

Hey how else do you explain the drubbings that have taken place over the last two games? Granted neither the Bills nor Buccaneers made the playoffs last season but both have been selected on various “must watch” lists for the coming season.

Despite the slate being wiped clean as of this morning and every team restarting at 0-0, the Redskins have tasted success once again and demand for seconds. As the team flew back to the D.C. area in the wee hours of the morning, the players not only tweeted their approval of the first 4-0 preseason since 1985, but of the preseason being a thing of the past and the real games starting now.

Cornerback Josh Wilson:

You’ve been to FedExField before for a Washington Redskins game and have seen just how amazing the atmosphere is come game day.

The outside tailgating experience is top notch, big name rivals come to town each season and, of course, “Hail to the Redskins” being sung by the faithful after every touchdown.

Josh Wilson, although touchdownless in his two seasons with the Redskins, has heard the familiar tune countless times and just like the rest of us has it memorized.

Check out this rendition of the Redskins fight song by the corner courtesy of his Meet the Redskins segment:

Hall, Tapp To Reunite In Washington

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 4, 2013 – 9:28 am

DeAngelo Hall

With official word that the Washington Redskins have resigned cornerback DeAngelo Hall, his teammates were excited to have him back to help defend the 2012 NFC East title.

Hall has been with the Burgundy and Gold since 2008 when the team signed him to a deal that November. In his five years in Washington, number 23 has appeared in 68 games, starting 64, and was selected to represent the NFC in the 2010 Pro Bowl.

While Hall will see familiar faces from his time in the DMV such as Josh Wilson, Reed Doughty and Robert Griffin III, there is one man who has seen the talented player grow since his high school days in Chesapeake, Virginia.

Bracket Update: Ranking The Players

Posted by Chris Herting on March 25, 2013 – 3:36 pm


Since it’s not football season and there’s no Redskins football on TV, let’s assume that everyone’s attention has turned, at least for the next three weeks, to the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Call it crazy but March Madness is a force to be reckoned with at this time of year because of all the pageantry surrounding nail-biting finishes, Cinderella stories and upsets galore.

The bottom line is that the tournament is arguably one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, other than the Super Bowl, and captivates audiences across the Nation.

Why try to fight it? Plus, Redskins players seem to be having some fun with the tournament so why can’t we?
