Angela Rypien Named Hottest Of All Time

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 26, 2014 – 12:39 pm


Angela Rypien, daughter of former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, was named the “hottest” Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League) athlete of all time in a list unveiled by the league and TMZ Sports.

The field included 1,600 women throughout the sport’s three leagues in Australia, Canada and the U.S.

While this may seem like blatant click bait – Um, okay, it is – it’s also an opportunity to reflect on Rypien’s place in a growing sports league and how her father feels about it.

Rypien On Bold Prediction, RGIII, Redskins

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 18, 2013 – 11:26 am


It’s no mystery the Washington Redskins have fallen below high expectations to start the season. If being selected as NFC East Champions in various NFL preview publications wasn’t enough, they were top-10 in power rankings, fresh off a 4-0 preseason and successful training camp and, of course, are defending the division crown for the first time in 13 years.

Then something unexpected happened—they lost four of their first five games and at times, especially in the first half against the Eagles and Packers, looked far from the team the registered seven-straight victories to end 2012.

It’s early, but that excuse will soon fade away as the Redskins get into the meat of their schedule. Having said that, major progress was shown last week against the Cowboys.

Former Redskins quarterback and Super Bowl XXVI MVP Mark Rypien joined fellow Redskins legend and former teammate Brian Mitchell on the set of Sports Talk Live to talk current Redskins and how they’ll replicate 1987’s Super Bowl-winning team’s result.

First-Round Quarterbacks Vs. Super Bowls

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 10, 2012 – 4:05 pm

via sixteenwins.com

The history of the Redskins’ franchise is highlighted by three franchise quarterbacks: Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen and Joe Theismann.  The team has also leaned on spectacular seasons by Doug Williams and Mark Rypien, but have been lacking in quarterback production over the last 20 years.

In the past decade, the team has sought consistent play from draft picks (Jason Campbell, Patrick Ramsey), journeymen (Tim Hasselbeck, Todd Collins, John Beck), and former franchise quarterbacks from other teams (Mark Brunell, Donovan McNabb, Rex Grossman), but all options have fallen short.

Head coach Mike Shanahan told reporters at the recent league meetings that the team is targeting one of the two franchise quarterbacks believed to be available at the top of the first round.  Why the lack of traditional secrecy?  There’s no reason to be coy about addressing a position with strong correlation to Super Bowl wins.

Rypien Whistles ‘Hail’ Over Fan’s Voicemail

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 27, 2012 – 12:42 pm

Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien was the gunslinger under center for the 1991 Redskins–arguably the greatest team ever assembled–but had a reputation for being a man of the people.

Outside of the magical season in Washington, he had a journeyman’s career, and forged his best relationships with the fans.  As far as I can tell, he never ‘big-leagued’ anyone during his career or post-playing days, and continues to be a Redskins fan and ardent supporter.

He even whistles the Redskins Fight Song in perfect form. Read more »
