GALLERY: Wilbur Marshall Talking Smack And More Redskins Falcons History

I don’t think Wilbur Marshall was telling Andre Rison how much he loved chili dogs at The Varsity, but I guess it’s possible.

This phenomenal shot of the Washington linebacker jawing at the Atlanta receiver in 1992 is just one image we’ve got from the series history between these two franchises.

Check out the gallery below for a look at Larry Brown topping the 1,000 yard mark during his 1972 MVP season, LaVar Arrington putting the hurt on Michael Vick and Ryan Kerrigan celebrating a pick-six with a little help from the fans at FedExField. Read more »

Arrington Proud Of His Redskins Roots

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 5, 2012 – 12:04 pm

LaVar Arrington has never been shy about letting his feelings known; so when he says something, he means it.

Arrington — whose “10 For 80″ distinction by the Redskins cements his name among the greatest players in team history — spoke to the Redskins Blog Saturday night at the Redskins Homecoming Alumni Reception in Washington, D.C. Arrington was one of more than 150 Redskins alumni to visit over the weekend.

“It’s very humbling,” Arrington said. “It’s just nice to be in the midst, nice to be a part of something like this. I’m happy and elated to be here — just elated.”

Rivalries To Build Early For ‘Skins Rookies

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 21, 2012 – 10:53 am

Though I doubt Washington Redskins’ rookie quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins will be sharing their playbook knowledge with the Dallas Cowboys’ first-round selection, cornerback Morris Claiborne, the three are expected to spend a whole lot of time together next week

That’s because the NFL for the first time has decided to divide the rookies by conference for next week’s Rookie Symposium in Aurora, Ohio, meaning the Redskins’ 2012 rookie class will get the opportunity to get an early look at their NFC East foes.

Start To Free Agency Graded A Success

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 16, 2012 – 5:41 pm

AP Image

In the history of the Redskins franchise, the team has been wryly crowned ‘the offseason champions’ many times for its expenditures in free agency.  We don’t need to revisit those.

But those days appear to be a thing of the past, as the Redskins–for the second-consecutive year–are earning high praise for their measured additions in free agency.

Even while preparing for an unexpectedly amended salary cap number, the Redskins have managed to add quality talent on both sides of the board, earning praise from industry gurus.

ESPN NFL expert John Clayton named the Redskins among his three winners after the first three days of free agency.  Coming at it from a fiscal responsibility angle, here’s what he had to say: Read more »

LaVar Arrington On Tutoring Lorenzo Alexander

Posted by Matt Terl on May 13, 2011 – 2:25 pm

Former Redskins linebacker (and current 106.7 The Fan radio host and Washington Post blogger) LaVar Arrington was back at Redskins Park for today’s 4th & Life event. He spoke to a group of high school students about (basically) making good choices in life — and he was generally very good at that — but I was interested in some other teaching that he’s been doing lately: namely, schooling Lorenzo Alexander in the art of pass rushing.

Alexander was the Redskins’ starting outside linebacker last year, just the latest position switch for the player known as the One Man Gang. But pass rushing wasn’t his strongest suit, so he connected with Arrington to get some pointers — something that Alexander mentioned in an appearance on Arrington’s radio show.

And, Arrington said today, Alexander quickly found out just how much there was to learn — and how much Arrington had to teach. Read more »

Lorenzo Alexander Is Learning From Ex-Redskins Linebackers

Posted by Matt Terl on April 14, 2011 – 12:14 pm

Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and defensive lineman Kedric Golston were on 106.7 The Fan’s LaVar Arrington Show With Chad Dukes yesterday to talk about, among other things, Ride To Provide, their upcoming charity bike event.

Ride To Provide is a terrific event. It takes place this year on April 23 in Reston, and everyone reading this should go and ride bikes with Alexander and Golston and whomever else is going to be there — and, of course, help people in the process.

But, for me, the most interesting part of the appearance came right at the beginning.

Before I get there, though, some background. Gary Fitzgerald makes a point in this week’s Redskins.com Writers’ Roundtable that I think has become accepted wisdom among Redskins fans:

On March 1, a few days after Coach Shanahan called pass-rushing linebacker the Redskins’ top need at the NFL Scouting Combine, Lorenzo Alexander sent me a tweet that read: “Question – Who is the other great pass rusher for Green Bay?” I get his point. The Packers, who like the Redskins run a 3-4 defense, won the Super Bowl with just linebacker Clay Matthews as a dominant pass rusher.

With all due respect to Lorenzo, pass-rushing linebacker IS a need for the Redskins.

And thus far in Alexander’s career, it’s true that pass rusher hasn’t been one of his specialties. Then again, linebacker wasn’t one of his specialties. Neither was defensive end, for that matter. Or tackle. Or even defense.

I’m not going to rehash Alexander’s entire “One Man Gang” career — that’s ground that’s been well-trodden — except to make this one simple point: every time Alexander has needed to make a move or change a position to solidify his spot in the NFL, he has done it. But I think the stories of his versatility do him something of a disservice, because they make those moves sound like things that come naturally to Alexander. Like they’re easy.

But every time Alexander has had to change position, he’s had to work and study and learn and improve at whatever the new position required; there’s no reason to assume that pass rusher is any different.

And that brings us back around to Wednesday’s radio appearance.
