Statistical Updates: Redskins-Jaguars

The Washington Redskins last Sunday dominated in their 41-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedExField. A big part of that attack was the Redskins’ defense, which tied a team record with 10 sacks in the game.

With so many sacks in one game, it can often be confusing at that exact moment for an official scorer to determine who should — and who shouldn’t — be credited with the play. So oftentimes, teams will contact the league and Elias Sports Bureau throughout the next week to clear that up.

Elias then typically meets with the league office to review certain plays.

That’s what happened this week for the Redskins, who got some clarity on a few plays from Elias researchers.

While the only stat that will every mean anything to a Washington Redskin is wins (and a frustrating 0-for has the players’ determination at an all-time high), individual performances count too.

For the remainder of the season, Redskins Blog will keep you up-to-date with how several key players are doing in certain statistical categories along with their NFL ranking.

Similar to leading the offense in the huddle, we trot this week’s update out with quarterback Robert Griffin III leading the way (NFL rank in parenthesis—no not these, the ones below):

The strong get stronger. That’s the case this morning for the Washington Redskins as it’s been announced that the team has signed 10-year veteran linebacker Nick Barnett.

Barnett, who spent his first eight years with the Green Bay Packers, led the Buffalo Bills in tackles last year with 112 (72 solo).

In a Week  5 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2011 season, Barnett picked off Michael Vick twice to include a return for touchdown in the second quarter.

Here’s video of both interceptions:

Candidates For First Deacon Jones Award

On June 3rd the National Football League lost one of the greatest players to ever step foot on the gridiron, defensive end David “Deacon” Jones.

Jones, who finished his illustrious career with the Washington Redskins, is best known for terrorizing opposing quarterbacks and coining the term “sack” during his 14-year career.

Long before 2009 Hall of Fame inductee and former Redskin Bruce Smith notched his record breaking 199th career sack against the New York Giants in 2003, Jones was literally changing the game and making sure that defensive players got their name in the papers as well.

To honor Jones’ career of being a quarterback’s worst nightmare, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the league will honor each season’s sack king with the Deacon Jones Award at the annual NFL Honors awards extravaganza.

Could a current Redskin bring home the inaugural award?

Williams Used Trusty ‘Rock’ In Tournament

Last week the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation sponsored a rock-paper-scissors tournament hosted by Playworks.

Playworks’ overarching mission is to improve the health and well-being of children through physical activity to include rock-paper-scissors.

Knowing the benefits the timeless hand game has had on himself and his family, Redskins running back and seasoned rock-paper-scissors player Keiland Williams threw his name into the hat to see if he was the best rock-paper-scissors player that day, but more importantly, to promote peaceful conflict resolution in schools.

Jenkins Added To Loaded Linebacker Unit

As I wrote earlier today, the Redskins had an extra fifth round draft pick in this year’s from a 2011 trade and used it on Florida State linebacker Brandon Jenkins.

Jenkins was the second Florida State player selected by the Burgundy and Gold in the fifth round. Just eight picks earlier, the Redskins took FSU running back Chris Thompson.

Did the Redskins just add another future Pro Bowler to a unit that already features Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrgian, London Fletcher and Perry Riley?

Jenkins was a preseason All-American and All-ACC candidate in 2012 before suffering a season-ending foot injury. If the former Seminole plays up to his top pick potential before being sidelined, the Redskins just got another late round steal–a Mike Shanahan specialty.

Here’s a little video to get you jacked up for Jenkins arrival in the Nation’s Capital.

Green Among Best Draft Picks Ever

With the NFL Draft commencing tonight, the minutes are slowly ticking down on the first overall selection stepping on stage with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to kick off the annual extravaganza.

Worried about the Redskins not having a first round pick?

Don’t be.

With starters such as Alfred Morris and Perry Riley selected well after the conclusion of the first round, talent can be found all the way to the 254th overall pick.

Over the years, the Redskins have had some of the best talent ever come to that Nation’s Capital via the draft while others…well they didn’t quite pan out.

NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison dissected some of the best and yes worst, draft picks by the Washington Redskins since the draft’s institution in 1936. (Just a note–there are no current Redskins on the list of bad draft picks which seems fitting considering that the last four first round picks have been selected to the Pro Bowl).

2013 Draft Profile: Jonathan Cyprien

[Note-This post does not indicate any plans for the draft. It is merely a more in-depth look at a prospect that has been floated around the No. 51 pick in mock drafts.]

We are a little over 24 hours away from the 78th annual NFL Draft commencing at Radio City Music Hall in the heart of the Big Apple.

While the Redskins are currently on the outside looking in at what will be a frenzy of a first round on Thursday night, that doesn’t mean that this draft is a throwaway.

With starters such as Alfred Morris and Perry Riley being selected after the conclusion of the first round, head coach Mike Shanahan has given Redskins Nation a reason to tune in to every round of the draft.

Yesterday, I looked at Mississippi State safety Darius Slay and what he could bring to the Redskins secondary if his name is called by the Burgundy and Gold this weekend.

Since he played for an SEC school that always fights for a spot in end of year top-25 rankings, chance are that you probably saw Slay play at least once during his two years in Starksville.

Jonathan Cyprien from Florida International University, however, is a little known commodity that could bring a big-play mentality to the Nation’s Capital if his name is called.

Possible RG3, Vick Duel Headlines Opener

Michael Vick, Robert Griffin III

Mark your calendars Redskins Nation its official, the 2012 NFC East champions will open the 2013 slate against NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football at FedExField. The opener is one of five primetime affairs for the Burgundy and Gold.

And yes its the same Eagles who the Redskins swept during the 2012 campaign including a 31-6 victory at FedExField that jump started the Redskins epic run to the postseason.

With plenty of storylines to dig into, it only seems fitting to do a way too early preview of a game that is still months away.

Here are some topics to follow that night:
