D-Hall Rates Brian Orakpo’s Interception

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 21, 2013 – 3:40 pm

Leave it to one of the best of the modern era to grade the abilities of others at intercepting pigskins.

For the third time this season, the Washington Redskins returned an interception to the house. In Week 3 cornerback DeAngelo Hall jumped Lions All-Pro Calvin Johnson’s route and picked off Matthew Stafford for a 17-yard return for a touchdown.

Then in Week 4 against the Raiders rookie David Amerson, whose decision to enter the NFL Draft was cause for all ACC quarterbacks to have a little get together and celebrate his departure from the college ranks, sniffed out a Matt Flynn pass for a 45-yard pick-six.

On Sunday, from perhaps the most unsuspecting suspect, linebacker Brian Orakpo located a wobbling ball in the air for not only his first career interception but return for touchdown as well.

Not bad for a guy who has the worst hands in the linebacking corps.

Coaches and players have the occupational obligation to pore over film today, searching for what went wrong in a 31-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last night.

Hopefully you can appreciate some things went right, including standout individual plays and performances. The Redskins fell short on the road, but at least three players gave them opportunities to capture the momentum at AT&T Stadium.

Here are your nominees for MV(Redskin) from Cowboys week.

What Went Right: Week 6

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 14, 2013 – 12:44 pm

Highlight: Alfred Morris busts the longest run of his career, a 45-yard touchdown to cut the lead to single digits.

What went right: This is what a well executed zone running play looks like. The offensive line and the runner are moving in perfect concert. This play is successful because each blocker completes his assignment, Morris has the vision to be decisive and then breaks a tackle to complete the big gain. Center Will Montgomery has to trust guard Kory Lichtensteiger to handle the defensive tackle. Watch how quickly he passes the defender off, leaving the double team to get to the next level and  seal off Sean Lee in the middle. Outside linebacker Justin Durant keys on fullback Darrel Young, effectively running himself out of the play. Morris sees the lane, cuts upfield and has the patience to make a another cut off Montgomery. Orlando Scandrick can’t square up on Morris, and the runner shakes him off to complete the play.

Deja Vu–Rob Jackson Intercepts Romo

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 13, 2013 – 9:15 pm

You knew it was only a matter of time before Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo confused one of his targets with Rob Jackson.

Early in the second quarter, just like he did in Week 17 last year, Romo’s pass found the hands of Jackson.

Welcome back Rob!

Rob Jackson Unwinds

Outside linebacker Rob Jackson has no interest in the most popular video game of all time.

To the media, Jackson has been one of the most popular players in the locker room in his first week back from a four-game suspension. With all the added attention piling onto an already exciting week getting back to practice, Jackson said his top priority away from football is relaxation.

So he plays PlayStation 3. But instead of living a virtual life of crime, Jackson said he would rather simulate the gridiron.

Charley Casserly: ‘Give Ball To Morris’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 9, 2013 – 12:19 pm

Alfred Morris, Eric Frampton

There are “experts” and then there is Charley Casserly.

Unlike his talking head counterparts, Casserly knows a thing or two just about everything in talent evaluation and what it takes to build a winner. So when he talks we listen.

The former general manger and disciple of Hall of Fame head coach George Allen chatted with the guys on “Inside the Locker Room” yesterday on ESPN 980 about the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry and what it will take to defeat Jerry’s boys.

Rob Jackson Happy Cowboys First Game

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 8, 2013 – 10:24 am

Just went it seemed like it couldn’t get any better, the linebacker corps returns Rob Jackson this weekend after he served his four-game suspension.

Spelling Brian Orakpo for a play here or there is no easy task—a pass-rush stalwart and high-octane energy guy, No. 98 is one of a kind. But replacing him for 14 games in the starting lineup?

Not only did Rob Jackson set career-highs in his absence, but he capped off 2012 with an interception off Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo that set up the game-winning touchdown and made a home playoff game reality for the first time in 13 years.

But one interception off Romo isn’t good enough.

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?

Outside Linebacker Trio In Upper Echlon

The following is a Public Service Announcement for Redskins Nation.

After missing the majority of the 2012 season outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is back, full healthy and ready to scare NFL quarterbacks once again.

Isn’t that music to the ears?

After suffering a season-ending pectoral injury in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams last year, No. 98 is prepared to fight for a division crown on the field this go around (with this menacing facemask) instead of being the Burgundy and Gold’s number one sideline supporter.

While ‘Rak certainly still wishes that he could have added to his 29.5 career sacks during the team’s seven- game winning streak last year, he like the rest of us got to watch fellow bookend Ryan Kerrigan blossom into a Pro Bowler.

Now, the duo (known more affectionately Kerrakpo) along with free agent acquisition Darryl Tapp are consider a top-five outside linebacker unit.

Jackson Raises Money For Sandy Hook

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 6, 2013 – 10:27 am

jackson

In 2008, the Washington Redskins selected Kansas State linebacker Rob Jackson late in the final round of the draft.

After years of hard work, including two stints on the practice squad, Jackson slowly rose to the top of the Redskins depth chart before breaking into the starting lineup during the 2012 season, replacing the injured Brian Orakpo for the last 14 regular season games.

Jackson’s importance to the Burgundy and Gold’s march to their first NFC East title since 1999 rose each week and culminated with his late fourth quarter interception against the Dallas Cowboys in a ‘winner takes all’ matchup to advance to the playoffs. Jackson’s interception led to Alfred Morris‘s third touchdown of the night and sealed a home playoff game for the first time in 13 years.

While Jackson has called the DMV his home for the past five years, his heart is still in Connecticut where he was born and raised in the city of New Haven.

The tragedy in Sandy Hook devastated everyone across the nation and with the town less than an hour from his childhood home, Jackson felt the pain.

Last month, Jackson participated in the first annual Gridiron Chef Competition to help raise money for the victims in Connecticut.
