2013 Draft Members Have Chance To Start

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 29, 2013 – 12:35 pm

Unlike last year’s draft where the Redskins were determined to move up from their original draft slot of sixth overall to draft one of the biggest college prospects, the team stood pat during the 2013 NFL Draft and let everyone know that they weren’t going anywhere.

They didn’t move and they didn’t drop back; they kept their seven draft picks and added depth and addressed need at the same time.

Standing firm with what we currently have has been a recurring theme this offseason as the Redskins return all but one starter from last year’s squad.

Going into the draft, though, secondary was an area of interest for the 2012 NFC East champs as it seemed like every “expert” was tabbing a corner or safety to come to the Nation’s Capital.

Did they predict three DBs, two of which led the NCAA in interception, would join the team?

Was there anyone that thought they would land Phillip Thomas and Baccari Rambo, both of whom were linked to the N0. 51 overall pick, in the latter half of the draft?

ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano looked into his crystal ball for the NFL future for trio and sees some starters for the upcoming campaign.

Redskins Warming Up For First Pitches

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 11, 2013 – 3:53 pm

Mets Tigers Spring Baseball

With the clocks turning forward an hour and the sun shining brighter later into the evening, spring is on the horizon as many look forward to turning in their winter jackets and scarfs for sandals and ball caps.

While the NFL is shifting focus to the 20th anniversary of the free agent signing period, baseball season is swinging into full gear.

Currently, teams have migrated to Arizona and Florida to prepare for the upcoming season in the “warmer” winters that each state provides during this time of year.

NFL.com has released a gallery of various football players and coaches tossing out the honorary first pitch and to no one’s surprise, several Redskins are on it.

Behind Enemy Lines: Buccaneers Edition

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 27, 2012 – 5:45 pm

(AP photo)

You’ve got to feel for Tampa Bay Times Buccaneers beat writer Stephen Holder, who is considering purchasing a boat to get around after Hurricane Isaac moved its way near the Tampa area early this week.

Fortunately, Holder’s phone was working just fine late Monday afternoon, because he’s this week’s guest for the “Behind Enemy Lines” podcast.

We had a variety of questions for Holder about the Bucs, which had a lot to do about Tampa Bay team members from a season ago who, for various reasons, were let go and are now with the Washington Redskins (namely former Bucs head coach/current Redskins secondary coach Raheem Morris and former Bucs/current Redskins receiver Dezmon Briscoe).

We also asked Holder about the tight-ship regime under new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano, and what to look for in Wednesday’s game, which is at 7 p.m. ET at what we’re all hoping is a dry FedExField.

The complete audio interview with Holder is below, but here are some snippets from the conversation:

Jackson Brings The Hammer To Secondary

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 13, 2012 – 3:31 pm

Tanard Jackson signs his new contract at Redskins Park on Friday morning.

After inconsistent play at the back end of the Redskins’ secondary last season, the team made the decision to go in a new direction for 2012.  With the additions of Brandon Meriweather, Madieu Williams and now Tanard Jackson, the Redskins are set to have revamped talent and depth at safety next season.

Jackson, 26, comes to the Redskins after being released by the Buccaneers earlier this week.  In Washington, Jackson has an ardent supporter in defensive backs coach Raheem Morris, who was his head coach in Tampa Bay.  Jackson also becomes the latest of a growing list of Redskins that hail from the DC-Maryland-Virginia area, having grown up in Potomac, Md.

Jackson brings a scary presence to the Redskins’ secondary, and matches the fearsome playmaker that defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is seeking.  Here are a few of his highlight hits in recent seasons: Read more »

New Redskins Tackle James Lee Has Tips

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 9, 2012 – 5:51 pm

via ProTips4U

This afternoon, the Redskins brought in offensive tackle James Lee, a former undrafted free agent claimed off waivers by Bruce Allen to Tampa Bay in 2008.  He will provide depth at a Redskins’ area of need this offseason, and compete for playing time behind Trent Williams and Jammal Brown.

Lee has appeared in 19 games over the last four years, starting 10 for former Bucs head coach, Redskins secondary coach, Raheem Morris.  His big season was in 2010, when he started nine games en route to the playoffs, helping the Buccaneers average 125.1 rushing yards per game, which ranked third in the NFC (eighth in the NFL).

Lee, 26, played collegiately at South Carolina State where he appeared in 33 games with 31 starts. As a senior, he was named third-team All-American by the Associated Press and was an honorable mention choice for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America squad.

Perhaps his best asset, is that Lee can also provide a veteran influence, which could one day blossom into a career in coaching.  Why so confident? Lee is already an Internet sensation, demonstrating proper pulling technique in an infomercial for ProTips4U: Read more »

Meriweather ‘Soon To Be Showcased Live’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 15, 2012 – 5:03 pm

As I learned this afternoon at Redskins Park, new safety Brandon Meriweather is not a man of many words.  In fact, he would rather that his actions speak for themselves, as he shared in his first interview as a member of the Washington Redskins.

Asked which safety position he’ll play in Washington, Meriweather replied:

“I dunno yet.  I mean, wherever the coach puts me, that’s where I’m gonna be happy, and just try to fulfill that to the best of my abilities.”

Asked how he would describe his game and how it fits into Washington, Meriweather replied:

“‘Soon to be showcased live.’  I think that’s the best description I could give: ‘soon to be showcased live.'”

In other words, fans will have to wait until the team reconvenes in April and see how he plays, for themselves.  Or where he plays.  Those are big cliff-hangers for now.

But one thing that got a strong reaction out of the young safety, were the prospects of playing for defensive backs coach Raheem Morris.  Morris is known for his passionate and intense coaching style, and Meriweather thinks it’s a good fit.

“I think that might be the best part of it all,” he said.  “I get to actually get a coach that’s similar to me.  As in, has a lot of energy, y’know, requires the best out of everyone.  I think it’s gonna be fun.  I think it’s gonna be a great year.”

Morris Solely Focused On Redskins Job

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 13, 2012 – 3:17 pm

via NFL.com

Even though he’s barely been in Washington a month, Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris has already proven that he’s a man of his word.

Appearing this morning on the AM 620 “Sports Animal” morning show out of Tampa, he explained how his coaching interests started and ended in Washington this offseason:

It was a no-brainer decision.  I had a couple places that I could go, but those places didn’t fit as well for me.  Obviously Washington offered me first and I gave them my commitment, and once I gave them my commitment–all you have in this game is your word and your tape, and I had to go with my word.

Morris initially left Washington to interview elsewhere for a defensive coordinator position, but elected to come back to a situation with the Redskins where he felt “as comfortable as you can feel”: Read more »

Tuesday Senior Bowl Notes: The Coaches

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 24, 2012 – 8:30 pm

via NFL Network

There were many reasons to be excited about watching today’s NFL Network coverage of the Shanahan-led Senior Bowl South Team’s practice.

For media, this was the first time since training camp that they’ve been privy to a practice in its entirety.  For most fans, this was the first opportunity to see how Redskins coaches interact with their respective group of position players.

I just thought it was pleasant to watch a “Redskins” practice from my living room.  I’m all about the simple things in life.

Here are some screen shots taken from today’s television coverage, with a focus on the Redskins coaching staff: Read more »
