First Time At The Combine

Posted by Chris Herting on February 22, 2013 – 11:46 pm

lucas-oil-stadiumThere’s one word that can describe the city of Indianapolis in February: Cold. Maybe a better word to use is frigid.

Nonetheless, our plane touched down earlier today in Indy, fresh off of an ice storm that impacted much of the Midwest Thursday night into Friday morning. But despite the bitter cold temperatures outside, we ventured over to Lucas Oil Stadium to catch the 2013 NFL Combine.


The five block trek through the city streets was worth the energy and excitement palpitating through the hundreds of media that were gathered together upon our arrival.

Today, kickers and punters took the field to show off their talents and abilities to NFL scouts representing all 32 teams. But as exciting as coffin corner punts are, we naturally turned our attention to the running backs and wide receivers who reported to the stadium today.

For the first time, these former college stars experienced a taste of what an NFL interview room feels like. The vibe inside was electric. The media were firing questions. Coaches, scouts and GMs were deep in analysis. And the athletes were prepared.

Sign, Sign, Everywhere A Redskins Sign

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 7, 2012 – 10:19 am

In my quest for more Redskins references in downtown Indianapolis, I kept my nose to the grindstone, searching for Burgundy and Gold.

Evidently, if I had only looked up, I would have seen the intersection for Redskins Road at Meridian Street, about eight blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium.  Check it out (via Redskins Special Events Manager Kate Sandusky):

Burgundy And Gold Flavor In Indianapolis

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 2, 2012 – 8:59 am

Good morning Redskins Nation and welcome to Indianapolis, on the eve of one of the biggest sporting events in the world: Super Bowl XLVI.

While I will have plenty to share in terms of my experiences from the front lines, perhaps the easiest way to begin is to tell a story through imagery.

From the moment I touched down at the airport yesterday, I’ve been inundated with Super Bowl logos and imagery keeping a particular eye out for links to the Redskins.  Here are a few notes that I came away with:

  • With an NFC East and AFC East team in the big dance, I’ve seen remarkably fewer fans supporting the other teams from those divisions.  That means a lot fewer Redskins fans than I would have hoped for, but also fewer Cowboys fans–so I’ll take the trade.  Here was a throwback to John Riggins fan in the Super Bowl village:
  • Both the Westin and Marriott hotels downtown are celebrating the Super Bowl with imagery on the front of their buildings.  While the Westin goes with a simple “XLVI,” the Marriott showcases one of the biggest Lombardi trophies…well, ever.  Admire: Read more »

Leaving For A Super Week In Indianapolis

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 31, 2012 – 5:59 pm

In 24 hours, I will be in the native land of Ryan Kerrigan and Rex Grossman–the great state of Indiana.

Even though the Redskins will not be directly participating in Super Bowl XLVI, I will be flying to Indianapolis tomorrow to work, volunteer and partake in the festivities.  Tropical Indianapolis, here I come!

My primary interests in the events are to help the NFL with public relations for the duration of the week, and of course Sunday’s big game.  But from my bird’s eye view, I will also be able to bring you continuing coverage of Redskins players, fans and interests, as the week unfolds.

I’m most excited to be covering the Super Bowl Breakfast, at which London Fletcher will receive the Bart Starr Award for his hard work and dedication, both on and off the field.  I will also give you a rundown of relevant Redskins references out and about.  I expect it to be a lot of fun, a moderate amount of hard work, and not all that much sleep.

If you have any suggestions, scoops or insight, give me a tweet (@Redskins) and/or leave a comment on the blog.  I look forward to an exciting week, and I’m prepared to be your inside source.  Wish me luck, check the The Official Redskins Blog, and as always–HTTR.

Players Tweet Final Game-Time Thoughts

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 19, 2011 – 6:09 pm

According to league rules, players are restricted from tweeting a certain amount of time before and after the game.  There wasn’t much chatter from the veteran players, but for the younger guys, this game could mean a lot.

Darrel Young is battling for the starting fullback position:

Redskins Fans Tuned Up For Tonight

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 19, 2011 – 5:02 pm

We are now down to two hours before kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Fans indicated on the offensive and defensive units polls that they are most excited to see the Redskins running backs and defensive lines take the field.

With so many position battles yet to be resolved, I don’t anticipate a dull aspect of tonight’s game, but fans have every right to be excited for the running game.

Last week against Pittsburgh’s stingy defense, the Redskins backs rumbled 35 times for 140 yards. Last week, the Colts yields 41 rushes for 169 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams.

Everyone should get touches tonight.

On the defensive line, there are a lot of exciting possibilities coming out of camp.  Free agent additions Stephen Bowen and Barry Cofield had good debuts last week, highlighted by Bowen’s sack for a 10-yard loss.  Rookie Jarvis Jenkins created a lot of buzz in camp, and Adam Carriker is still listed at the top of the defensive end depth chart.

A formidable rotation appears to be in the works.

Here are some [randomly selected] fans that took to Twitter to express their feelings. Read more »
