Throwback Thursday–2012 Draft Class’ First Taste Of The NFL

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 15, 2014 – 11:15 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It may be hard to believe, but it’s has indeed been two full years since the 2012 draft class was just starting their collective nascent career.

Headlined by quarterback Robert Griffin III and bolstered by the hard-nosed efforts of Alfred Morris and quality fill-in appearances from quarterback Kirk Cousins, the 2012 class is certainly one that lives in a special place in Redskins Nation’s heart.

With the 2014 rookie minicamp getting ready to start-up, here’s a look back at just some of the highlights from the 2012 class’ first season:

Combine Look Back: The Class of 2011

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 24, 2014 – 4:01 pm

(AP)

(AP)

Although 40-yard dashes, broad jumps and bench press reps don’t really give us an idea of a prospect’s viability as a football player, the physical tests can give a glimpse at a man’s raw athletic potential and ability to thrive in a competitive atmosphere. Over the course of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, the Redskins blog will take a look back at how Washington’s past three draft classes fared in Indianapolis.

Third-Year Duo Facing New Challenge

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 10, 2013 – 4:16 pm

It’s the worst possible news a player can receive—you’ve been placed on Injured Reserve.

Sandwiched between talk of his future and who will be under center this weekend in Atlanta, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan announced yesterday that third-year running back Evan Royster was being shelved on IR after suffering a high ankle sprain.

With Week 17 confirmed as the last game of the season—only three weeks away–Shanahan said Royster’s recovery wouldn’t complete until after the regular season window closed.

The former Penn State star isn’t the only third-year Redskin that will be battle the tough road of recovery so many athletes face daily this offseason. Just three weeks prior to Royster’s painful injury, Shanahan announced that Leonard Hankerson was going under the knife for ACL—and later discovered LCL—surgery.

Together the 2011 draft classmates are vowing to return better than ever.

Darryl Tapp Has A Message For U

Darryl Tapp has a message for Miami Hurricanes fans, including his neighbor in the locker to his left.

Leonard Hankerson wasn’t around to see it, but Tapp, a proud Virginia Tech alumnus, sported a spirited maroon T-shirt on Monday in honor of the Hokies’ 42-24 victory over the Hurricanes during the weekend.

Check it out below.

What Went Right: Redskins Vikings

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 8, 2013 – 12:22 pm

The Redskins outgained the Vikings by 126 yards, possessed the ball for 12 more minutes and played turnover free football. But after allowing 20 unanswered points in the second half, the team returned to Washington with another frustrating loss.

Washington still ran the ball effectively and executed a flawless screen game. Let’s examine what went right in Minnesota.

Highlight: Facing a third and 15, Pierre Garçon catches a screen pass and races 30 yards for a first down.

What went right: Execution. Due to the down and distance, Minnesota rushes four linemen and drops everyone else back in a zone to protect the first down. Garçon starts on the left side and runs a crossing route over the middle on a play designed for him. Leonard Hankerson, Jordan Reed and Roy Helu Jr. set up successful blocks as soon as Garçon makes the catch. The receiver has a clear path to run untouched for the first 13 yards. Garçon delivers a forearm shiver to linebacker Erin Henderson to break one tackle and ducks under another hit before the Vikings bring him down.

Week 10 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Fantasy owners craving some early week point explosions may finally get their kick.

Some of the Thursday Night Football games this season have produced more hair follicles removed than points. Staring at your lineup fantasizing more about the possibility of a redo option than wanting a dislike button for Facebook to let that person who shares 16 links per day to calm down, TNF hasn’t been too kind.

But with Alfred Morris, Robert Griffin III, Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon, Adrian Peterson and Greg Jennings among others playing in Week 10’s opening game, there will be no need to look at your team on Friday morning with one eye open.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy point total/ranking roundup for the Washington Redskins:

Week 9 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 31, 2013 – 9:48 am

Sunday’s homecoming matinee against the San Diego Chargers could feature a whole lotta scoring.  Both teams enter Week 9 averaging 24 points per game.

You know best fantasy owner that it’s been impossible to predict what the offense is going to do this season. At times when everything is clicking the offense looks better than it did last season. And then there’s everything else.

If you were that lucky owner to either draft Alfred Morris or pick up Jordan Reed off the waiver wire then congratulations to you. Morris continues to churn out yards and Reed has been a top free agent acquisition, owned in nearly every league now.

Reed’s eminent rise is even more noteworthy considering his viability as a top fantasy option. Pretty impressive for a rookie who played quarterback at the start of his college career and had to play catch up after missing parts of offseason activities recovery from injury.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy roundup before tonight’s Cincy Bengals-Miami Dolphins matchup:

What Went Right: Redskins Broncos

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 28, 2013 – 12:13 pm

Don’t be a sourpuss. Pretend you fell asleep in your recliner at the end of the third quarter last night and missed the fourth quarter.

As harsh as the 45-21 loss turned out to be, let’s take a moment to appreciate what went right in Denver.

Highlight: Alfred Morris’ 27-yard run gives Washington room to operate

What went right: Darrel Young leads the way. Denver brings five men to the line of scrimmage, using Von Miller to set the edge. Logan Paulsen gets to Miller’s outside shoulder, and Young chips him to clear the way for Morris. Aldrick Robinson blocks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie up the field, then releases him to put a block on the safety. Kory Lichtensteiger quickly bumps Trent Williams off the double team, allowing the tackle to seal off the middle linebacker. Young is one-on-one with Rodgers-Cromartie in the hole, leaving Morris to follow his fullback for a big chunk of yardage.

GIF: It’s Hank Time In Denver

What a way to end the first half. After stagnant performances on the first few drives, the offense had, perhaps, it’s best drive of the season.

Starting on their own five-yard line, they milked the clock on a 16 play, 7:03 drive that was assisted by a Broncos penalty on kicker Kai Forbath’s field goal attempt. We love you Kai, but we’d rather see this Leonard Hankerson touchdown (his career-tying third touchdown of 2013):
