No. 46 in the burgundy and gold helmet on Sunday got one final opportunity to break a few tackles before officially getting his offseason underway.

Here’s a recap of the Redskins’ social media activity during the game, beginning with an injury update on left tackle Trent Williams, who was supposed to play Sunday for Team Irvin in his third-straight Pro Bowl appearance:

Maigan Will Cheer For Alfred Morris, Trent Williams And Brian Orakpo From The Opposing Sideline

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 1:21 pm


Although the unconferenced Pro Bowl presented a chance for Brian Orakpo to tackle Alfred Morris – or Trent Williams to block Orakpo – each of the Redskins three Pro Bowlers landed on the same team.

Maigan was not so lucky.

Washington’s 2014 Pro Bowl Cheerleader will have to cheer on the Redskins from the far sideline. In her report from Hawaii, Maigan wrote she was drafted by Team Rice. It was a busy day for Maigan, who snapped a photo with the other cheerleaders from the NFC East, rehearsed a half-time performance and posed for a photo shoot at Diamond Head.

Through it all she’s representing for the First ladies of Football. Read Maigan’s dispatch and check out more photos below. Read more »

UPDATE: Sean Taylor Made The Best Moment In Pro Bowl History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 1:30 pm


Ten days ago I posted a blog requesting your votes for the greatest moment in Pro Bowl History. You came through.

With 58 percent of the votes, Sean Taylor’s demolition of Bills punter Brian Moorman overwhelmingly earned the majority of fan recognition. The two closest selections were Brandon Marshall’s four touchdowns from the 2012 all-star game (15 percent) Adrian Peterson taking home Pro Bowl MVP honors in the 2008 game (12 percent).


Taylor Wins


Read the original post below for more on Moorman’s reaction to the vicious hit and a recap of the year in punter violence.

Trent Williams, Brian Orakpo Saved From Each Other At 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 12:33 pm

An absent Redskin switched teams due to a last-minute trade in Honolulu that ensured all three of Washington’s representatives would play for Deion Sanders in the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.

Jerry Rice traded Brian Orakpo, who had not yet arrived in Hawaii, to Sanders for NFL sack leader Robert Mathis in the final move of the Pro Bowl draft. Per the rules of the new draft format, Rice was allowed to force a trade for any non-quarterback because his team picked second.  Read more »

Deion Sanders, Jerry Rice Slept On Alfred Morris In The Pro Bowl Draft

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 11:11 am

Once again, the talent evaulators forgot about Alfred Morris.

Leading up to Sunday, the NFL has done everything it can to make the 2014 Pro Bowl a spectacle. Deion Sanders has grown snow-white scruff that plays nicely off his team’s neon key lime motif. Jerry Rice got up in Sanders’ grill like Richard Sherman at a prefight weigh-in with Floyd Mayweather. Sadly, there were no dropkicks.

The two Hall-of-Famers selected their all-star teams Wednesday in the second day of the unconferenced Pro Bowl draft. Neither picked Alfred Morris, who was assigned to Team Sanders in the 19th round because Rice had reached his position limit with three running backs.  Read more »

Did Pierre Garçon Get Snubbed From The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 22, 2014 – 1:00 pm



At some point in the history of the universe somebody hitched the word to all-star exclusion.

I’ve said, heard and read “snubbed” enough times in the past two days to book a trip to Martha’s Vineyard solely for the purpose of using it both nautically and before a steeplechase.

My fixation stems from a timely question: Was Pierre Garçon snubbed from the Pro Bowl? Read more »

Alfred Morris Had A Pretty Awesome Friday

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 17, 2014 – 4:13 pm


Alfred Morris entered Redskins Park on Friday with two empty hands. He left with a Walter Payton Man of the Year Award and a figurative plane ticket to Hawaii. 

Because Eddie Lacy is subbing in for Adrian Peterson and either Marshawn Lynch or Frank Gore will be unable to attend, Morris will represent the Redskins in the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.

He also got a hug from Robert Griffin III and wore the best T-shirt I saw all day. If he eats his greens, Alfred can skip to Honolulu. Read more »

Sean Taylor Might Have Made The Best Moment In Pro Bowl History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 13, 2014 – 1:35 pm



In an effort to promote the unconferenced 2014 NFL Pro Bowl, the NFL has released an online ballot for fans to vote on the best moment in Pro Bowl history.

As of Monday afternoon, the late Sean Taylor was leading the poll, garnering 33 percent of the votes for laying out Buffalo punter Brian Moorman on a fake punt in 2007.

Redskins Pro Bowlers Announced

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 27, 2013 – 9:00 pm

Trent Williams

Congratulations to Trent Williams for earning his second consecutive Pro Bowl selection. The offensive tackle was an integral piece of  a Redskins offensive line that has started every game together and blocked Washington to the NFL’s fourth-most yards rushing.

In addition to Williams, four Redskins made the newly formatted all-star game as alternates available to replace starters sitting out with injuries or playing in the Super Bowl.  Read more »
