Colt McCoy, Andre Roberts Make Top Plays Of The Week

Posted by Jake Kring-Schreifels on December 2, 2014 – 1:35 pm

It was pretty clear that once Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy started dodging Indianapolis Colts tacklers, he was going to make a big-time play. After impossibly eluding three defenders, he had enough presence to look downfield and find his tight end Logan Paulsen for an easy score.

“The smart play probably would have been to throw it away,” said McCoy after the game. “But at point in the game, we needed a touchdown, we needed a spark, something.We found a way in and I’m happy that Logan scored.”

The effort notched him the No. 1 play of Week 13 according to NFL AM.

Close behind was another pass play this time with wide receiver Andre Roberts, who made a tightrope grab by the sideline ending in a superb catch. That earned him the fourth spot on NFL.com’s Top 5 catches of the week.

Logan Paulsen Parts Way With Signature Beard — Again

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 15, 2014 – 9:17 pm


It’s not exactly smooth as a baby’s bottom, but Logan Paulsen’s face is bare once again.

The Redskins tight end is known by many for his thick beard and long brown hair, both of which are often seen protruding from his helmet and chin strap.

But Paulsen this week decided to trim his entire beard off.

The Redskins Blog has learned the grooming decision was probably made much to the delight of Paulsen’s wife, Kelly.

The decision to cut off the beard was a far cry from a scenario Paulsen faced a couple years ago, when he decided to grow out his hair and beard until UCLA college teammate Nick Ekbatani — who suffered a leg amputation in a motorcycle crash — could walk again.

Redskins “Give Local” At Weekend Blood Drive

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 28, 2014 – 4:52 pm


Blood is burgundy for a reason.

On Saturday, Washington Redskins players and coaches, in conjunction with Inova Blood Donor Services, partook in a blood drive at Redskins Park.

Part of Inova’s “Give Local, Save Local” campaign, the blood drive drew citizens of the DMV and beyond looking to support those in need to include head coach Jay Gruden.

“Gave some blood Saturday which was exciting,” Gruden said Monday before Brian Orakpo’s fourth-annual Leukemia Golf Classic at Trump National Golf Club. “Got to see some people and help some people. It’s a great opportunity to help people that desperately need it.”

Here’s Gruden shortly before needle’s first poke:

The Redskins announced McVay will be promoted from tight ends coach to offensive coordinator.

What Went Wrong / Right Vs. The Chiefs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 9, 2013 – 12:36 pm

The Chiefs played a complete game in Washington Sunday, downing the Redskins, 45-10. Kansas City was effective at the goal line, smothering on defense and, most of all, punishing on special teams.

Let’s take a deeper look at what went wrong for the Redskins in three phases and what went right on the team’s lone touchdown.

Highlight: Logan Paulsen uses one hand to complete a 7-yard touchdown catch to put the Redskins on the board in the second quarter.

What went right: A shimmy. The Redskins line up in a shotgun set and sent a trips formation, three receivers bunched together, to the right side. On the left side, Paulsen lines up as tight end , and Roy Helu Jr. motions from the backfield to a receiver position, sending the Chiefs scrambling to adjust. Kansas City sends four pass rushers, and the rest of the defenders occupy zones. Paulsen runs a seam route straight up the field. Safety Quintin Demps locks in on the tight end, and Paulsen takes a quick step outside to fake a corner route before turning back inside. The subtle move holds the safety and creates space for Paulsen. Robert Griffin III throws the ball where only Paulsen can reach it, and the tight end finishes the play by batting the ball back to himself with his left hand, then gathering it with both hands and stopping his momentum in time to get both feet securely in bounds.

Waiter Ryan Kerrigan Gets A Huge Tip

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 3, 2013 – 11:07 am


“Would you like a crabcake?”

The burly waiter extended a silver tray of hors d’oeuvres, but the patrons were more interested in his autograph.

A black, rectangular name tag reading “Ryan” was affixed to a Ruth’s Chris apron over a crisp white dress shirt and a diagonally-striped gray-and-white tie.

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and nine of his teammates hustled for tips Tuesday at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Arlington, Va., as part of a Celebrity Waiter night to raise funds for Kerrigan’s Blitz For The Better Foundation.

By the end of the night, Kerrigan’s group had raised $108,000 for seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout the greater Washington, D.C., area. Read more »

What Went Right And What Went Awry: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 2, 2013 – 12:36 pm

The Redskins were eliminated from playoff contention in a 24-17 loss to the Giants on Sunday night composed of a hot start, a second-half collapse and a controversial spot at FedExField .

Through most of the first half, the Redskins dictated the game. Let’s take a look at what went right on a few big plays and what went awry for Washington.

Highlight: Alfred Morris plunges into the end zone from one yard out to score the Redskins’ first opening drive touchdown of the season.

What went right: In football parlance, this is called putting a hat on a hat. Washington lines up in a power running formation with an extra tackle, a tight end, an H-back and a fullback. Right guard Chris Chester pulls to his left, and the left side of the line blocks down right to compensate. Trent Williams moves Cullen Jenkins out of position. Logan Paulsen occupies Mathias Kiwanuka, and Chester comes across the line to chip in. Tom Compton gets to the next level, taking out linebacker Jon Beason. Morris cuts into the gap created by Williams,  Chester and Paulsen and dives across the goal line. Read more »
