Roy Helu Jr. Gave Scoring Football To Baby Redskins Fan

Posted by Jake Kring-Schreifels on December 2, 2014 – 12:00 pm

After Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. scampered into the end zone Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, he had unfinished business.

Shortly after he was able to retrieve the scoring football, he jogged over to the sideline stands to give a memorable souvenir to the youngest Redskins fan in attendance. Luckily, no opposing Colts fans tried to swipe the ball away from the little guy.

Here’s more on the young fan.

Redskins Talk Thanksgiving Traditions, Plans

–Social Media Recap: 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast
–Families Thankful For 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast

According to Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the pressure is on quarterback Kirk Cousins to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. According to Cousins, the pressure will mostly be on his wife who is in charge of cooking the turkey.

“I just got married this summer so I guess this will be the first time we’re starting our own tradition together as a married couple,” said Cousins. “Knowing my wife, in only the four or five months that we’ve been married, she’s lived up to the hype. She’s done a really good job cooking. So no doubt, Thanksgiving for her is game day.”

Along with Kerrigan, Cousins will host several other teammates and their wives as well as his own family members.

He’ll try to find some time to peek in on some games, too.

“It should be fun hosting a few of the other guys on the team, have some fun and fellowship and watch some football,” said Cousins. “It’s the 5 “F’s” in Thanksgiving that I love: football, family/friends, fun, good food, and a four-day weekend so I’m looking forward to that.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr. will also be with his wife Thursday after the team finishes practice. He’ll go to his sister’s house and eventually celebrate the holiday at his friend’s while unable to be home in California where he grew up.

“You kind of just adapt and make a lot of food,” said Helu, who promises to watch a lot of football as well. “We haven’t really started a tradition or anything.”

“I like the leg of the turkey, the dark meat,” he added.  “I want to try a deep-fried turkey because I haven’t tried one before. My pet peeve is cold Thanksgiving food. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie or pecan pie– I switch in between– and cheesecake.”

Tight end Jordan Reed doesn’t plan to have the television on when he makes the trip to his brother’s home in Baltimore. He’ll be happy to lie around, talk to family and enjoy the macaroni and cheese his mother, the specialty cook, will pass around the table.

Kerrigan meanwhile is looking forward to his aunt’s sweet potato casserole and linebacker Trent Murphy expressed his excitement to try the fried turkey long snapper Nick Sundberg is preparing.

Wide receiver Santana Moss will also be with family Thursday, including his kids, whom he hasn’t seen for a while.

“I’m always thinking about the life that we get to live, that we don’t appreciate much,” he said. “I know some of us do. A lot of us don’t. We all complain, but at the end of the day it could be worse. So you’ve got to appreciate and love up your family.”

Combine Look Back: The Class of 2011

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 24, 2014 – 4:01 pm



Although 40-yard dashes, broad jumps and bench press reps don’t really give us an idea of a prospect’s viability as a football player, the physical tests can give a glimpse at a man’s raw athletic potential and ability to thrive in a competitive atmosphere. Over the course of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, the Redskins blog will take a look back at how Washington’s past three draft classes fared in Indianapolis.

The Legends Division of the Big 10 is on the line and for six Redskins it’s personal.

While they may have to check score updates on their phones during the team’s flight to the City of Brotherly Love, there will be no love lost for about 3 hours when Nebraska and Michigan State duke it out this afternoon.

With Kirk Cousins and Trenton Robinson proudly defending the honor of Michigan State and Roy Helu Jr., Will Compton, Niles Paul and Adam Carriker pulling out their old Cornhusker hats, expect some friendly banter over alma mater supremacy.

Fantasy owners craving some early week point explosions may finally get their kick.

Some of the Thursday Night Football games this season have produced more hair follicles removed than points. Staring at your lineup fantasizing more about the possibility of a redo option than wanting a dislike button for Facebook to let that person who shares 16 links per day to calm down, TNF hasn’t been too kind.

But with Alfred Morris, Robert Griffin III, Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon, Adrian Peterson and Greg Jennings among others playing in Week 10’s opening game, there will be no need to look at your team on Friday morning with one eye open.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy point total/ranking roundup for the Washington Redskins:

Redskins Weekly Stat Ranking Update

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 5, 2013 – 10:25 am

In December of 1998, Psycho was the No. 1 box office hit, London Fletcher was a spry NFL rookie and Santana Moss was wrapping up a second historical season at the University of Miami.

It was also the last time the Washington Redskins walked out of a hard fought game against the San Diego Chargers with victory.

Well so much for that because Psycho is stashed away in my dust-ridden VHS collection, London Fletcher could rock a grizzly, salt and pepper grey beard for No Shave November that even George Clooney would get jealous of, Santana Moss has or is close to hitting several NFL statistical plateaus and the Redskins hold a one-game winning streak over the Bolts.

Anyway, this week’s weekly stat ranking update features a whole lot of Alfred Morris yards per carry, Fletcher takedowns and DeAngelo Hall touchdown celebrations.

Week 9 Redskins Fantasy Roundup

Sunday’s homecoming matinee against the San Diego Chargers could feature a whole lotta scoring.  Both teams enter Week 9 averaging 24 points per game.

You know best fantasy owner that it’s been impossible to predict what the offense is going to do this season. At times when everything is clicking the offense looks better than it did last season. And then there’s everything else.

If you were that lucky owner to either draft Alfred Morris or pick up Jordan Reed off the waiver wire then congratulations to you. Morris continues to churn out yards and Reed has been a top free agent acquisition, owned in nearly every league now.

Reed’s eminent rise is even more noteworthy considering his viability as a top fantasy option. Pretty impressive for a rookie who played quarterback at the start of his college career and had to play catch up after missing parts of offseason activities recovery from injury.

Anyway, here’s this week’s fantasy roundup before tonight’s Cincy Bengals-Miami Dolphins matchup:
