Garcon Closing Gap On Art Monk’s Record

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 17, 2013 – 3:39 pm

(Via Fansided)

Earlier today as part of the Redskins Blog’s weekly stat ranking update, I centered the post on the output of wide receiver Pierre Garcon and his transcendence to—near—the top of a longstanding franchise record.

Not surprisingly, the little tidbit gained some traction in the Twitterverse.

There were many a years where the Hall of Famer recorded at least 40 receptions—12 to be exact—but in 1984 he became the first and only Redskin to record triple-digits with 106 catches. Santana Moss (93) and Laveranues Coles (90) came close in the mid to late 2000’s, but neither truly challenged Monk’s record.

Garcon, however, is well within striking distance. At 96 receptions and counting, the former Mount Union star needs just 10 more to tie and 11 to become the franchise’s single season receptions king.

With Dallas’ defense on a historical pace of awfulness and the ending of the first Redskins-Giants game enough incentive to prove he’s got the hands to compete with a legend, Garcon is in position to surpass Monk.

Here are some facts about Garcon and the last two matchups that you might not know that really favor him snatching the record:

Mike Shanahan On Cousins, RGIII & Future

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 16, 2013 – 3:26 pm

On Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan addressed the media for his usual press conference dissecting the highs and lows of the game just completed.

Obviously there was a lot to discuss between Kirk Cousins’ performance, Brian Orakpo adding to his sack collection, both Alfred Morris and Santana Moss having an up-and-down day and the seven turnovers almost being overcome by a late drive–but an unsuccessful two-point conversion instead left the Redskins with nothing more than a “morale victory” if you believe in those things.

Shanahan dove head first into the sea of media sharks and addressed everything that was thrown his way.

Quick hits of his meeting with the local media gaggle courtesy the Redskins Official Twitter (@Redskins):

Cousins’ ATL Experience Starts With TD

Posted by Stephen Czarda on December 12, 2013 – 10:29 am

(AP Image)

Very rarely does a second-year quarterback, who is the backup mind you, get to the opportunity to play a good chunk of the snaps against a team outside the division in back-to-back seasons.

Then again, most teams don’t have a backup like Kirk Cousins, NFL.com’s No. 1 rated backup.

His unusual situation will pick back up on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Yesterday it was announced that Cousins would start the final three games of the season, the first of which will take place in the spacious Georgia Dome.

For his nascent NFL career, the former Michigan State star has completed 61.6 percent of his passes for 573 yards and one touchdown.

The first touchdown stupefied Atlanta’s defensive backfield, as his 77-yard connection with Mr. Consistency (Santana Moss) was a beautiful concoction of precision, power and electricity that sent pulse waves through a sellout crowd at FedExField.

Time to remember the moment:

Series History: Redskins Chiefs

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 6, 2013 – 11:41 am

(AP)

The kicker sparked the rally in the third quarter, then capped it off in the fourth.

With the Redskins trailing the Chiefs, 12-0, on Sept. 18, 1983, Mark Moseley booted a 35-yard field goal to put Washington on the board. Moseley’s 34-yard field goal in the fourth quarter finished a run of 27 unanswered points in a 27-12 victory.

John Riggins ran in a touchdown, Joe Theismann threw for two scores and the Redskins beat the Chiefs for the first and only time in franchise history. Washington would later advance to Super Bowl XVIII.

In eight meetings, Kanasas City leads the all-time series with Washington, 7-1. Read more »

Santana Moss Sees Nick Williams, Thinks Wayne Chrebet

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 15, 2013 – 10:50 am

Santana Moss takes off running (Gabe Hiatt)

Nick Williams (13) watches Santana Moss (89)

Growing up in East Windsor, N.J., Nick Williams watched Santana Moss return punts and catch passes for the Jets. When Williams signed with the Redskins in May, the 5-foot-10 undrafted free agent immediately planted himself in the veteran receiver’s ear.

Williams asked questions every day. Moss answered, gradually getting to know a cerebral young player that reminded him of another undrafted 5-foot-10 slot receiver from New Jersey.

Santana Moss’ Son Encountered One Nice Fan In Philadelphia

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 14, 2013 – 7:00 am

(AP)

(AP)

Don’t be deceived. Even the nicest looking fans in Philadelphia are merciless, throaty critics who indiscriminately spew a stream of invective at even the most innocent offender. At least that’s the stereotype.

Those Philadelphians (Philadelphites? Philadelphonics?) picked a fight with Clinton Portis’ mom.

They forced one of their own to plead for an end to the booing.

They booed my grandma for taking too long to write a $2.00 check for milk at the checkout counter. Okay that last one didn’t happen, but you see where I’m going with this.

Eagles fans are tough to please. They can be  intimidating for visiting fans. But according to Santana Moss, there’s at least one good guy at Lincoln Financial Field.
