Redskins, Ravens Hoop For Charity

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 25, 2013 – 1:11 pm

On Saturday, the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens tangled for the second time in months. For those of you that don’t recall how the events unraveled between the two teams in their first encounter, just check out this video as a reminder.

On this day, the two franchise that play a mere 30 miles away from each other on Sundays during the season, were showcasing their talents in a different sports arena where the final score meant literally nothing.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was holding his third annual Torrey Smith Foundation Charity Basketball Game and invited some of the NFC East champs to do battle at the rim. He and the rest of hims teammates were hoping to extract revenge for their lost at FedExField and more importantly, to raise money for his foundation.

Find out how the game when here:

Polumbus Excited For Chance At Crown

On Wednesday, the Washington Redskins continued to mark off another box on their plan of winning back-to-back NFC East titles by signing one of the most important players on the 2012 team; right tackle Tyler Polumbus.

Robert Griffin III burst onto the season with an epic debut performance en route to AP Rookie of the Year. Alfred Morris went from unknown back from Florida Atlantic University to owner of the franchise’s rushing record. Santana Moss had a career resurgence, catching a team-high eight touchdown passes and showing that he still has untouchable speed that Redskins Nation has been so fortunate to see for eight years and counting.

The trio can thank Polumbus and the rest of the offensive line for helping them reach unprecedented success as they paved the way for the league’s top rushing attack and gave Griffin III ample amount of time to find open receivers down the field.

Find out just how happy Polumbus is to wear Burgundy and Gold again next season here:

More than 120 students from nearby Sterling Middle School got a chance hang out with their favorite Washington Redskins players and get in a good workout Tuesday.

The Redskins played host to an NFL Play 60 Mini-Combine at their Ashburn, Va., facility, and took advantage of their new indoor training facility by taking things inside as rains and heavy winds moved over the area.

The event was a team effort between the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Commonwealth Orthopaedics, DePuy Mitek, Inc. and Safe Kids Worldwide.

The students were being trained with the help of nine Redskins players who were happy to participate on their day off Tuesday, including:

Hurt Liking Chemistry Along O-Line

Posted by Andrew Walker on June 1, 2012 – 10:08 am

Redskins’ second-year offensive lineman Maurice Hurt knows how a close-knit offensive line can lead to success on the field.

And after more than half of the team’s organized team activities have come and gone for the 2012 season, Hurt said he’s been encouraged by the strong bond along the Redskins’ offensive front.

Redskins Week 13 Madden ’12 Updates

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 1, 2011 – 3:52 pm

Good news for Redskins gamers, as your virtual home team on EA Sports Madden ’12 has been updated following another week of action.  Thanks to the first win in six weeks and the stellar play of the individuals on the field, there’s a generally upward trend for this week’s updates.

Week in and week out, the Redskins remain one of the most tinkered rosters in all of the virtual NFL.  Here’s the Week 13 rundown: Read more »

Seattle In The Rear View Mirror

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 28, 2011 – 11:32 am

AP Image

The Redskins have finally awoken from their bye week slumber, grabbing their first win since Oct. 2, a span of 56 days.  To put it in perspective, here’s a few other ways of measuring how long it’s been for the team:

  • They’ve made 26 changes to the active roster (and not all of them have involved Brandyn Thompson).
  • They’ve traveled approximately 7,733 miles on road trips.
  • They’ve had six other games, 22 team practices, and more than a dozen additional walk-throughs.
  • They’ve celebrated two major corporate holidays (Halloween and Thanksgiving), and spent almost all of Mo-vember.

It’s been a long time coming, it was a hard-fought battle, and it’s a win that everyone can share in and enjoy until Wednesday.

The Redskins proved a lot of people wrong with yesterday’s win, including every NFL prognosticator except for Mark Schlereth, and we’re here to give Stink his due credit.  On a more global perspective, they also surpassed the deflated expectations of ESPN The Magazine and Phil Steele’s NFL Magazine, both of whom predicted a 3-13 inept finish for the Redskins.  They’ve spent a long time searching for that fourth win, but it’s always nice to prove the doubters wrong.

Yesterday also wrapped up a dominant season series against the NFC West, against which the Redskins finished 3-1, beating Arizona, St. Louis, and Seattle.  Sure, these three teams have 10 combined wins, but those are the games that the Redskins were expected to win, and they did so.  It would have been nice to pull out a win against San Francisco, but there’s no shame in losing to one of the best teams in the NFC, if not the whole NFL.

No shame in beating them either, but you take what you can get.

One unexpected byproduct of this rough patch has been witnessing the emergence of several young playmakers on offense and defense.  With the loss of Chris Cooley for the season, the Redskins were able to confirm what they thought they knew about tight end Fred Davis.  With the loss of Santana Moss, the Redskins were able to get a look at both Niles Paul and Leonard Hankerson, who showed tremendous development during their rookie campaigns.  With the loss of offensive guard Kory Lichtensteiger, the Redskins were able to look at seventh-rounder Maurice Hurt, who has been more than serviceable at guard.  With the loss of Tim Hightower, the Redskins were able to get a look at both Roy Helu and Evan Royster in the backfield.

Helu showed yesterday that he has the dual-threat ability to be an offensive catalyst, getting 30 touches for 162 yards and a long touchdown run.  The instant success that he and his fellow rookies have had is just a testament to the scouting and player development behind April’s draft.  Early, premature indicators suggest that the 2011 Redskins draft class could go down as one of the best.

Maurice Brings ‘Mo’ Hurt To O-Line

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 21, 2011 – 4:30 pm

AP Image

It’s said that NFL linemen should have a mean streak in them in order to survive in the trenches.  They may need to ‘bring the hurt.’

New Redskins guard Maurice ‘Mo’ Hurt is proving that they can be polite off the field as well.

Following his promotion from the practice squad to replace injured guard Kory Lichtensteiger, Hurt answered his first interview requests with a series of “yes ma’am/sir” and “no ma’am/sir” answers.

“I just think it’s a great honor–a privilege–to be here,” he said quietly.  “I’m just ready to work and help out as much as I can.”

The 2011 seventh-round draft pick (217th overall) marks the eighth member of his rookie draft class that will appear on the Redskins active roster this season.  After about 11 weeks in the Shanahan offense, Hurt said he’s taking it as a vote of confidence that he’s been called up to play.

“Yes ma’am,” he told the reporter who asked.  “I don’t think they would’ve brought me up if they didn’t think I knew enough about the playbook.  I feel like I know enough about the playbook, where if I get put in a situation to play, I’ll do well.” Read more »

Redskins Changing Of The Guard

Posted by Brian Tinsman on October 19, 2011 – 12:04 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Lost amid the quarterback drama in Washington this week, has been the fact that the offensive line is about to look very different.  When the dust settles, it’s possible that four of the positions will feature new faces; five if you include tight end.

Is it the bye week yet?

The most unfortunate part is that left guard Kory Lichtensteiger, lost for the year, was playing at a very high level so far this season.  After joining the Redskins prior to last season, he was finally settling into a system that highlighted his strengths.  For now, his ascension has been put on hold.

His fellow offensive linemen were very empathetic to his struggles, but knew that they had to soldier on:

Oddly enough, it may be a defensive lineman that best understands what Lichtensteiger is going through.

Practice Squad Features Some Familiar Faces

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 5, 2011 – 5:37 pm

The recently announced Redskins practice squad features four players that have formerly donned the Burgundy and Gold:

Aldrick Robinson, wide receiver, No. 11

Evan Royster, running back, No. 35

Maurice Hurt, offensive guard, No. 79

Doug Worthington, defensive end, No. 90.

To get to the eight-player maximum, the squad is filled out with four newcomers to the Nation’s Capital.

One of them, quarterback  Jonathan Crompton (No. 3), actually had a chance to scout the area and stadium on Thursday night as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Crompton came into the game in a rotation with Bucs starter Rudy Carpenter, and went 12-for-22 for 149 yards and a touchdown and interception.

The Redskins defense roughed him up a little in the game, sacking him twice, once each from the departed Davonte Shannon and Edgar Jones.  The interception by Josh Wilson was more of an athletic move by Wilson than an errant throw by Crompton, but I’m sure a few introductions will be in order in the locker room tomorrow.

When I asked him today about Wilson, he laughed and replied: “Nah, I haven’t met him yet.  But I’m gonna have to mess with him a little.” Read more »

Redskins Select Maurice Hurt, Guard From Florida

Posted by Matt Terl on April 30, 2011 – 5:52 pm

With the 217th pick overall, the Redskins select Maurice Hurt, a guard out of Florida. He’s another guy I don’t know much about, but here are two things I can say for certain:

  • 1) He has a terrific name for an offensive lineman (or any football player, really).
  • 2) I will feel much safer walking to my car in the Redskins Park parking lot tonight knowing that we’ve selected at least one offensive lineman. The fans — at least on Twitter — were becoming restless.

Oh, and I know this: draft analyst Rob Rang had some nice things to say about Mr. Hurt:

Underrated: Maurice Hurt, Florida: There are two significant reasons why Hurt hasn’t received more attention. For one, he plays on the same line as Mike Pouncey and two other senior Gator offensive linemen who could get drafted, so credit was tough to come by. Secondly, he has a bad body. Quite frankly, the 6-2 5/8, 318-pounder is round. That said, he has surprisingly long arms for his frame (third among all interior OL tested at the combine), which the tape proves he uses well in pass protection and in the running game. Don’t be surprised when Hurt is drafted on the third day of the draft, but he winds up outperforming some prospects taken much earlier. – Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
