[Update: The Redskins are currently behind in both matchups with the 6pm deadline fast approaching. Click here to vote.]

Last week Redskins Nation came out in full force, as usual, and helped the Washington Redskins advanced to the second round in Dave Dameshek’s Greatest Uniform in NFL History bracket.

Representing the “early” years of the Burgundy and Gold, the 1965-1968 spearhead helmeted outfits soundly defeated the Detroit Lions very plain blue and silver getups by over 10,000 votes while the sleek Nike uniforms that Robert Griffin III helped make famous last year shooed away  the Atlanta Falcons upset attempt in the current NFC jersey region.

Speaking of the uniform that No. 10 wore last year, remember 2012’s season opener where the Redskins, wearing those always awesome gold pants that head coach Mike Shanahan revived, traveled to the Big Easy to take on the New Orleans Saints?

And to think no one outside of the DMV thought the underdogs could pull out a 40-32 victory.

Well the two teams are squaring off once again with the Redskins needing some ground to catch to advance to the Sweet 16.

Earlier this week, as part of his media tour for his new book Game Changers: Faith, Football, and Finding Your Way, quarterback Kirk Cousins made a quick pit stop with the guys at the Dave Dameshek Football Program to discuss how he is preparing for his job in the coming months.

And no I’m not talking about getting his arm loose for all the book signings he’ll do.

Cousins talked about how he and the rest of the offense are formulating plans on how to win back-to-back division crowns for the first time since 1983-1984.

The undefeated starter in the NFL also gave a sneak peak at how the offense might look under fellow quarterback Robert Griffin III in year two.

Hall Talks Cowboys, Jets And Rex Ryan

On this week’s Adam Rank “Gridiron Podcast For Kids” segment of the NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek Football Podcast (51-minute mark), Rank chats with Week 12 NFC Defensive Player of the Week, Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

Hall has made a lot of headlines in the last two weeks, from his critical assessment of his play in Dallas, to his stellar play against the Seahawks.  While it may have surprised people to hear that he would cut himself for his level of play, Hall revealed to Rank, that that’s just the type of outspoken leadership he provides

Me being the captain of this team and the captain of this defense, I felt like the onus was on me to make that play that sealed the win for us and I didn’t do it.

I never said go out and cut me.  I grew up in Washington, played college ball in the Virginia area, and this is the place I always wanted to be.  This is a dream job for me and there’s no other place I’d rather be.  But definitely going against the Dallas Cowboys, that’s a game that we all get up for, the owner, the front office, all the fans–myself included, growing up and knowing how intense this rivalry is.  I wanted it so bad, and to have it right there at the tip of my fingers and not be able to reach it or claim it–it was tough.  It was tough.

In the age of free agency and high roster movement, there’s some talk of the rivalries not being as heated as they once were.  If that’s true, it’s news to Hall: Read more »
