RGIII Meets Sandwich, Skateboard And TV Icons At The White House

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 21, 2014 – 6:23 pm

Robert Griffin III, Pierre Garçon, Ryan Kerrigan and Stephen Bowen all attended an annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House on Monday.

The players did not get to spend time with Barack Obama, but they did meet the First Lady and a smattering of random celebrities such as Jared the Subway guy, who probably gave RGIII the secret Subway Illuminati handshake before challenging the quarterback to a push-up contest.

Babe Laufenberg And The Giggling Marlin

Posted by Stephen Czarda on October 11, 2013 – 12:00 pm


Eddie LeBaron. Ray Schoenke. Deion Sanders. Stephen Bowen.

It doesn’t happen very often, but there’s the occasional player that crosses enemy lines between the Redskins and Cowboys.

While Bowen may be the most recent player to trade allegiance and make the right decision to sport burgundy and gold, ignoring the Dallas boo birds in the process, his signing in 2011 was about as normal as it gets.

He talked with Redskins brass, weighed his options and signed on the dotted line.

For former Redskins/Cowboys quarter Babe Laufenberg though, his third time signing with the team can be chalked up in one simple word: unique.

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?

The Evolution Of ‘Wildest Facemasks’

Posted by Stephen Czarda on June 13, 2013 – 11:48 am

For decades football facemasks remained relatively conformed in terms of the position that you played. Often, offensive lineman wore full facemasks to protect their eyes while running backs would sport a sleeker two bar look to complement their position duties (you wouldn’t want a view of bars blocking your vision).

Nowadays though with the NFL’s increased awareness on ensuring the safest game possible game, players are sporting quite the elaborate facemasks regardless of where they line up on the field.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen for example debuted this facemask last year to not only protect his head and neck from getting jarred by opponents, but because it simple looked ‘cool’.

NFL.com released a gallery of the “wildest facemasks” in the league and per the norm a Redskin is found.

2012 Rewind: Sweep Of NFC East Rival

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 22, 2013 – 3:15 pm

Since 1934 the Redskins and Eagles have squared off 156 times and unlike the heated rivalry with the Cowboys and the longstanding tension with the Giants, the Redskins have won over 50 percent of their games against their Pennsylvania counterparts.

Similar to the inaugural installment of Redskins-Eagles in 1934, the Redskins swept in 2012 thanks to a clipping of the Eagles wings in a 31-6 victory in Week 11 and a seven point victory in Week 16 that sprung them into a do-or-die matchup with the Cowboys a week later.

While the Eagles had been the Redskins worst nightmare throughout the early 2000’s, one man didn’t even blink when Philly came to town last year–Robert Griffin III.

Bowen Channels Tragedy To Help Others

Posted by Brian Tinsman on March 14, 2013 – 11:51 am

Not every charity has a happy inspiration, but Redskins’ defensive end Stephen Bowen would like to provide peace to families that might not otherwise be so fortunate.

It was June 2011, shortly before signing with the Redskins, that Bowen and his wife Tiffany gave birth to twin boys, Stephen Jr. and Skyler.

The boys were born prematurely at just 24 weeks, and entered immediately into the fight of their young lives.

Weeks later, Skyler developed an infection that his underdeveloped immune system was unable to fight, and he passed away.

Understanding how fortunate they were cover the medical and funeral costs of their child, Stephen and Tiffany developed a plan to turn their loss into a saving grace for others. Read more »

Posted by Stephen Czarda on March 13, 2013 – 2:19 pm

Kedric Golston

On Wednesday, the Redskins re-signed one of their core players of the last seven years, veteran defensive end Kedric Golston.

The 2006 sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia appeared in all 16 games for the 2012 NFC East champions, providing quality depth behind starters Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins, and Adam Carriker.

After signing his contract, Golston took to Twitter (@Golston64) to thank the fans and celebrate his return to the Burgundy and Gold: Read more »

VIDEO: Stephen Bowen On ‘NFL AM’

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 19, 2012 – 11:37 am

(AP photo)

Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen’s intimidating game face (see above) wasn’t enough to detract the folks at the NFL Network from putting him on national television this morning.

Bowen was interviewed live by the “NFL AM” crew about yesterday’s 31-6 win over the Eagles, Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and his team’s big Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Dallas Cowboys Thursday at Cowboys Stadium.

Bowen said the quick turnaround from yesterday’s game vs. the Eagles to Thursday’s game vs. Cowboys will result in some long days and nights in the few days leading up to the matchup.

“It’s all going to be worth it once you get that win on Thursday, because you have a couple days off and then get ready for the following week,” he said.

Here’s the entire interview with Bowen, who also was the subject of a recent Redskins Google+ Hangout:

BLOOPER: Bowen Ruins Rookie’s Filming

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 17, 2012 – 11:35 am

The photo above is Redskins rookie running back Alfred Morris‘ reaction to veteran teammate Stephen Bowen intentionally wrecking a quick video filming.

While shooting a video encouraging Redskins fans to participate in this week’s 12th Man Showdown vs. the Philadelphia Eagles, Morris was off to a great start — but that was when Bowen came out of the nearby training room, saw our operation, turned around, and dropped his trousers.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is an old-fashioned mooning.

Fortunately for you Redskins Blog readers, I was able to keep the camera on Morris and off Bowen’s rear end. Here’s the video — try not to laugh to Morris’ reaction:
