While the only stat that will every mean anything to a Washington Redskin is wins (and a frustrating 0-for has the players’ determination at an all-time high), individual performances count too.

For the remainder of the season, Redskins Blog will keep you up-to-date with how several key players are doing in certain statistical categories along with their NFL ranking.

Similar to leading the offense in the huddle, we trot this week’s update out with quarterback Robert Griffin III leading the way (NFL rank in parenthesis—no not these, the ones below):

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on March 18, 2013 – 3:28 pm


Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

As we continue to bring you updates each week to let you know how Redskins players are spending their offseason, we’re happy to inform fans that players are beginning to slowly trickle back in to Redskins Park after a few months away following the season. Believe it or not, the draft is a little more than a month away which means that OTAs and Redskins football is just around the corner.

In the meantime, we’re here to at least try and keep you engaged until that time comes.

You can check out last week’s Social Media Spotlight which debated the hot topic of whether it’s acceptable for men to wear yoga pants at the gym (still undecided) as well as recapped LB Ryan Kerrigan and K Kai Forbath’s golf outing, QB Robert Griffin III and Baylor’s upset over #4 Kansas, and LB London Fletcher announcing, via Twitter, his plans to return.

This week, we’ll catch a glimpse of WR Dezmon Briscoe working out and working hard, including what Griffin III thinks about the wide receiver’s workout. We’ll also take a look at DE Jarvis Jenkins’s inspirational quote, Kai Forbath’s comments on the return of LS Nick Sundberg and P Sav Rocca, and, last but not least, we’ll bring you WR Pierre Garçon’s take on March Madness.

Plus, does anyone remember the movie Space Jam? We sure do and so does G Chris Chester. We’ll let Chris give his thoughts on Bill Murray’s role in the film and more. Welcome to this week’s Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight!

You probably remember midway through the fourth quarter of last night’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys when Redskins punter Sav Rocca was called for a facemask penalty after bringing down Cowboys punt returner Dwayne Harris.

Now, thanks to the .GIF above, this play can live in the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry lore.

A season-best nine Washington Redskins players today were named to ESPN.com NFC East blogger Dan Graziano’s final All-NFC East Team. Additionally, Graziano named rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III the NFC East’s Most Valuable Player.

The Redskins’ nine selections tied the Dallas Cowboys for the most 2012 All-NFC East team selections. Following the division leaders were the New York Giants (six selections) and the Philadelphia Eagles (three).

Like it was in the NFL’s Pro Bowl voting, Washington (9-6) was well-represented in all three aspects — offense, defense and special teams — in the 2012 All-NFC East Team. The Redskins had five selections on offense, three on defense and one on special teams.

Here’s the entire list of Redskins representatives on the final All-NFC East Team:

Sav Rocca’s Bye Week Not So ‘Interesting’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 7, 2012 – 10:35 am

Of all the guys currently on the Washington Redskins’ roster, punter Sav Rocca would probably enjoy a trip home during the Bye Week the most.

But he can’t, you see. Rocca’s got two strikes against him: first, he must stick around the team’s Ashburn, Va., headquarters to receive treatment for an injured knee; secondly, round trip, Rocca’s trip home would exceed 20,000 miles.

And that’s without connecting flights and layovers.

Rocca, a Reservoir, Australia, native, said the interesting part of his Bye Week won’t include a trip home down under.

“Well, it depends on if you call coming in here for treatment every day interesting,” Rocca said yesterday.

These Redskins Are ‘Bad@$$es’

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 13, 2012 – 11:33 am

The folks at Maxim certainly know how to draw eyes to their magazines.

But if you look beyond the photos of scantily clad women (which, admittedly, is hard to do), there is actually some text that formulates words and sentences within Maxim’s pages — and it’s pretty good.

The magazine’s September 2012 edition features its “NFL Biggest Bad@$$es” list, and two Redskins populate the 20-man list.

And don’t worry Redskins fans — you made the list, too.

Eight Redskins Named All-Division Team

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 5, 2012 – 12:22 pm

As the 2011 regular season draws to a close, we once again turn to ESPN NFC-East blogger Dan Graziano for a look at which Redskins are the best at their position in the division.

While I have lobbied for certain players throughout the season, I do defer to Graziano for a more global perspective on the division.  I don’t have to agree, but it’s not my list.

After reaching a high-water mark of eight Redskins on the bye week edition of this list, the Redskins have sunken to as low as five in some weeks, and six in most others.  However, through sustained effort and great individual performance, the Redskins have again risen to eight honorees on the final list of the season.

This was the most by any team in the NFC East, as the Cowboys had seven, the Giants had six, and the Eagles had six of the 27 honors.

These is the complete list of Redskins on the ESPN All-NFC East team: Read more »

Rocca Came Here To Win A Championship

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 4, 2012 – 2:29 pm

Shortly before Christmas, I had the opportunity to talk football with Australian Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Craig McMurtrie and his cameraman Louie Eroglu at Redskins Park.

It turned out that not only has Redskins punter Sav Rocca been a punting stud in Washington this season, but he’s also turned heads 10,000 miles away in his native Australia.  The reason why the American correspondents were uncharacteristically focused on sports that day, was to cover Rocca for the a national radio and television piece in Australia.

Here’s the radio clip, read in an authentic Australian accent: Read more »

Philadelphia Eagles In Rear-View Mirror

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 2, 2012 – 1:35 pm

Before beginning any coverage of today’s locker room cleaning, I would be remiss not to look back on yesterday’s Eagles game.  Please appreciate that I finally found a rear-view mirror photo of the stadium for this weekly blog post.

Yesterday was supposed to be a feel-good game, sending the team into the offseason on a high note.  It would have been a redemption game over a division opponent that had beaten the Redskins two straight times, including earlier this season.  It would have been a showcase of young talent, and potentially a claim-staking performance for offseason free agents.

A young, depleted Redskins team played with a lot of heart yesterday, but just didn’t get the ‘W.’  On Monday morning, it hurts.  But in a week or more, it will be nothing more than one-of-11 losses this season.

The important thing is the exposure and maturation of the individual players, which will hopefully translate to wins in 2012.

Here are the Redskins superlatives for outstanding play in the season finale against the Eagles: Read more »
