What Went Right / Wrong: Redskins Giants

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 31, 2013 – 1:26 pm

The last game of the 2013 season was a wet and miserable 20-6 loss to the New York Giants. The Redskins defense limited an offense playing without it’s starting quarterback and top two receivers in the second half, but the offense could not score a touchdown.

Let’s take a look back at what went right and wrong at New York.

WHAT WENT RIGHT

Highlight: Reed Doughty intercepts Curtis Painter in the end zone.

What went right: The captain in coverage.

-The Giants line up in a shotgun set with a running back in protection, a tight end and an H-back on the left and a wide receiver on the right.
-The Redskins show their base 3-4 alignment and initially rush four defenders.
-Three linebackers are singled up in man coverage. Rob Jackson shadows Bear Pascoe , and Perry Riley Jr. eyes Peyton Hillis before adding pressure.
-London Fletcher, in the last game of a 16-year career, covers tight end Brandon Myers.
-Barry Cofield splits a double team and pressures Painter into throwing. Read more »

Reed Doughty Puts Gallaudet On His Head

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 13, 2013 – 5:10 pm

Reed

Reed Doughty put a bison on his forehead.

Not literally you maniac. In a Wednesday open locker room session, the Northern Colorado product wore a Gallaudet hat four days after taking in the Bison’s 35-7 win over Anna Maria at Hotchkiss Field. Doughty took his family to the game for a rare Saturday treat. Typically he spends his Saturdays in preparation, but Washington already played on Thursday night.

Like Doughty, who said he knew he had hearing loss since he was 5, Gallaudet’s players face varying degrees of deafness or are hard of hearing. As a result, the players and coaches have intricate sign language they employ on the field.

Passing Of Special Teams Torch

Posted by Stephen Czarda on September 3, 2013 – 9:37 am

On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan announced the team-elected captains for the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. On the offensive side of the ball, quarterback Robert Griffin III and offensive tackle Trent Williams will wear the captain’s patch while nose tackle Barry Cofield and London Fletcher will carry the distinction for the defense. Obviously, there are no shockers in Shanahan’s announcement as all four carried the torch last year.

The only change as far as captainship from a year ago is on special teams where veteran Reed Doughty will be taking over a position that was held by linebacker/special teams ace Lorenzo Alexander. Doughty may not be the fastest player in the league, but is a guy who just gets it done year after year. Over the last two seasons, only Alexander recorded more special teams tackles.

While Alexander may be cross-country now with the Arizona Cardinals, he’s in constant communication with former coworkers and offered up nothing but his highest praise for Doughty taking over his spot in 2013.

This week’s Social Media Spotlight is presented by social media intern Jared Ross. 

As usual, we check in from Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia to bring you this week’s Social Media Spotlight. If you missed last week’s Spotlight, make sure to check it out to see kicker Kai Forbath’s photo of Redskins Park from his airplane window, how wide receiver Pierre Garcon anxiously awaits game day, quarterback Robert Griffin III’s return to the football field, and more.

In this week’s Social Media Spotlight, players start to settle back into football mode as they enter their third week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs).

In these past two weeks of OTAs, not only did player’s return to the football field, some returned from injury to join in for a few practice drills.

And now, we present this week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight. In this week’s edition, we review nose tackle Chris Baker’s grand predictions for the Redskins in 2013, safety Reed Doughty’s trip to Dover International Speedway, defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s poetry, kicker Kai Forbath’s visit to a USA soccer match, and a photo from defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins‘ last night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Doughty’s Passion To Help Continues

Redskins safety Reed Doughty is a man of nature. He enjoys fishing, hiking, and just basking in the natural elements.

He also loves to step and giving a helping both on the field as well as off of it. In his seven years in the Nation’s Capital, the Northern Colorado product has been inserted into the starting lineup whenever the Burgundy and Gold have needed a helping hand.

Off the field, he works closely with activism of kidney disease and supports the Spinal Research Foundation by educating people on the importance of spinal health, especially for you fans out there who work desk jobs.

It’s obvious that the perfect 4.0 college student has willfully provided care for taking care of your body and while the majority of the NFL world had their sights set on the NFL Draft a few weekends ago, No. 37 was far away from the Big Apple. Instead, he was tucked deep in the foothills of Virginia tying to of his passions together: fly fishing and helping others.

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.

They Are Who We Thought They Were?

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 11, 2013 – 1:55 pm

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins has been a busy man this week. First, he went back to East Lansing recently to call the X’s and O’s for his alma mater’s spring game. Now, he has been all over ESPN where he talked to NFL Live and did a sit down chat with ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning.

With Cousins’s media stock quickly rising, the former Spartan great has been asked to be a guest speaker at a local event and unfortunately for No. 12, the event organizers may have forgotten Cousin’s 329 yards and two touchdown performance against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 from behind center.

So, can Cousins compete for the Burgundy and Gold’s starting kicker spot against record-setter Kai Forbath?

Highly doubtful, but Cousins isn’t the only member of the Redskins squad that has had an “identity theft” of sorts.
