Where The Swag Lives

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 27, 2014 – 3:49 pm

RakAttack

Brian Orakpo entered the studio at Redskins Park positively dripping with swag. Don’t ask me my why style has liquid properties. It just does.

Fresh off signing a one-year franchise tender that would guarantee his position in Washington’s defense for 2014, Orakpo sat down with Tarik El-Bashir and Chris Wilson to tape This Week @ The Park on Thursday. He insisted he needed a microphone to amplify the “Barry White” voice he’s had since the third grade.

The linebacker’s cap read, “Don’t Trip.” His gold watch matched the chains around his neck and the zipper on his varsity jacket.

Orakpo said his streetwear was indicative of an attitude that starts in the linebacker corps.

The linebacker’s film study and work habits led to in-game prescience that drew praise from coaches and teammates and as they reflected on 16 seasons of productive play.

In an exclusive interview with Redskins.com, Fletcher discussed how his observations in practice influenced his opinion of Offensive Coordinator Sean McVay, who spent the past three seasons coaching tight ends.

How London Fletcher And Art Monk Filmed The Declaration Of Independence For Fox

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 4, 2014 – 6:00 am

setwide

Two men stood on their marks and shivered in front of a 20-foot metal arm while the wind off the Tidal Basin bit their cheeks.

Their teeth did not chatter as as they spoke the 237-year old words originally drafted by the man standing 19-feet tall in bronze at the top of the  marble steps.

Art Monk and London Fletcher were supposed to show off their suits for the camera, but the chill at the Thomas Jefferson Memorial demanded overcoats to shield the tailored fabric. A member of the Fox Sports crew craned the camera jib upwards up before gliding it down, creating a sweeping effect to meet the project’s “look ethic.” Read more »

London Fletcher’s Childhood Heroes

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 17, 2014 – 12:08 pm

(AP)

Fandom grows in the hearts of the young.

Children who can’t comprehend the intricacies of a 4-6 defense can still tell you who they like and who they don’t. It could be the jersey number, a player’s personality or who we thought we were supposed to like. We all attached ourselves to individuals.

For me it was Jim Brown (because of my dad and NFL Films) and Clinton Portis (because of this).

For young London Fletcher in Cleveland, it was a linebacker in Chicago and a running back in Los Angeles.  Read more »

Adam Carriker, Aldrick Robinson Call Florida State Over Auburn For BCS Title

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 7, 2014 – 10:27 am

When No. 2 Auburn went up, 21-3, on  No. 1 Florida State in the first half of the Vizio BCS National Championship Monday night, defensive end Adam Carriker looked like a man who should stick to pro wrestling analysis.

With 00:13 left on the clock in Pasadena, Calif., Carriker looked like Nostradamus.

FSU Heisman Winner Jameis Winston completed a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin to cap off the two-minute drill and win the game. Roberto Aguayo’s extra point made the final score 34-31.

Before the game, Carriker predicted a score just one point shy of what transpired.

The field of potential candidates to be the next head coach of the Washington Redskins thinned on New Year’s day.
