By now, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of the “Super Bowl Five,” a group of five gentlemen that form an extremely rare breed of football fan:

They’ve been to every single Super Bowl game.

Including today’s big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., these five gentlemen — , , H

Now that’s what I call one impressive sports feat.

Brad Labanow, 28, has a tattoo that leaves its mark deeper than the skin. Labanow, who lives in Marana, Ariz., has a 1970’s-esque Redskins logo on his right shoulder.

And even though he was wearing a vintage Redskins shirt around downtown Phoenix during the week of Super Bowl XLIX, he said he does not need to wear a shirt or hat to show his love for the team.

His decision was easy.

“I was like, ‘Yep, that’ll work. I’ll do that,’” said Labanow, pulling up his sleeve over the weekend to expose the tattoo to the Arizona sun. “Even though we haven’t done well since ’92 it seems like, it’s still something I’m proud of. It’ll always be on there.”

Kevin Harlan Realized Cooley’s Dream

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 4, 2014 – 12:00 pm

Chris Cooley

Chris Cooley squeezed in a wish for Kevin Harlan, asking one favor from the veteran NFL voice in an ESPN980 interview from Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row last week.

“All I ever wanted to do was score a touchdown in the Super Bowl. I never got it,” Cooley said. “Can I paint a picture? We’re on the 25-yard line, and I just want to hear your voice say that Cooley scores.”

Harlan, who will call his fourth straight Super Bowl for Westwood One, obliged. Click on the 10:35 mark to hear Harlan call the play that hands Washington a fantasy radio land Lombardi trophy.

This brings new meaning to fake it ’til you make it.  Read more »

What Joe Gibbs Learned From 2013

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 31, 2014 – 3:49 pm



Joe Gibbs was like a lot of Redskins fans.

A 10-6 record, an NFC East championship and a playoff berth in 2012 made the three-time Super Bowl champion expect continued success for Washington.

In an interview with Larry Michael Friday afternoon on Super Bowl XLVIII Radio Row, Gibbs said a 3-13 season in 2013 reinforced a simple message. Read more »

Ranking The Redskins Super Bowls

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 31, 2014 – 12:38 pm



Rankings are fun, but I don’t know what I’ll do in the space between the Super Bowl hoopla and free agent evaluations. I guess I could rank the leftover cheese in my fridge.

It’s not looking good for you, herbed cheddar. You’re safer than you think, American singles. But it’s not cheese time, yet.  NFL Media analyst Elliot Harrison compiled a ranking of the most exciting championships with help from Gil Brandt.

Personally, I think Super Bowl XVII could have been ranked a little higher. John Riggins’ run is a top-10 signature Super Bowl moment.

Why is Super Bowl XXV No. 4? Capturing a championship because of a missed field goal doesn’t seem that epic. (LEAVE SCOTT NORWOOD ALONE). Maybe it’s just my age, but I also think Super Bowl XXXIV should be ranked better. Mike Jones yanking Kevin Dyson short of the goal line on the final play was as memorable as any game-winning touchdown pass. My top choice has to be Super Bowl III. Joe Namath’s wagging index finger backing up “the guarantee” in slow motion makes me feel some type of way.

Below you’ll find the Redskins selections. Washington barely cracked the top 20. Take a look and tweet your feedback to @Harrison_NFL.

To The Baltimore Ravens: You’re Welcome

It turns out that the Redskins and Ravens both got what they needed out of the Week 14 clash at FedExField.

For the Redskins, it was one of the most thrilling finishes in stadium history, as backup quarterback Kirk Cousins took over in the game’s final seconds, finishing off a touchdown drive and two-point conversion to complete the comeback. In overtime, Richard Crawford busted a 64-yard punt return, setting up a game-winning Kai Forbath field goal.

The win was the fourth in a row for the Redskins, and gave Washington regional bragging rights for the next four years. More importantly, it was a milestone during the team’s seven-game win streak that delivered the team’s first NFC East title since 1999, and their first playoff appearance since 2007.

For the Ravens, it was the first back-to-back losses under fifth-year head coach John Harbaugh, and left a team that started the season 9-2 scrambling for answers. Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was fired the next day, ushering in former Colts head coach Jim Caldwell to call plays.

The Ravens got healthy and hot at the right time, clinching the AFC North title and scoring decisive playoff victories over the Colts, Broncos and Patriots.

Although the Ravens are currently game-planning for the Super Bowl and making travel arrangements for the road, they should consider sending the Redskins a thank you note.

Is AFC East Key To NFC Championship?

Posted by Brian Tinsman on January 21, 2013 – 3:36 pm


Happy belated birthday to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who would have been 86 on Jan. 15 (his actual birthday), and a Happy Inauguration Day to all. Regardless of your political persuasion, everyone can enjoy a balmy Monday off of work in the middle of January.

Unless, of course, you’re working today, in which case thank you for choosing to procrastinate with the Redskins.

Yesterday’s playoff football action determined that the Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers on Super Bowl Sunday in two weeks.

Even if you don’t give two hoots about the matchup, there are many heart-stopping appetizers and hilarious commercials to be watched that day, so there is something for everyone.

Coach Gibbs Still A Proud Redskins Fans

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 13, 2012 – 4:24 pm

There’s a lot of talk in the NFL about how the sport is a business, and that players and coaches are little more than businessmen with athleticism and flair.  While that may ring true for some, the greatest players and coaches have an incredible passion for the game, no matter where life may take them.

For Redskins legend Joe Gibbs, it was a passion that inspired three Super Bowl championship teams with three different quarterbacks.  It was coaching 12 seasons in the same city and leaving on his own terms.  It was returning 12 years later to fulfill a deep-seeded desire to coach.  It was coaching for another four seasons, giving his team two more shots at the playoffs.

And it was being a lifelong Redskins fan, who still gets excited for his old team.

Gibbs was at Redskins Park earlier this week and caught up with Redskins Nation’s Larry Michael to discuss what he’s been up to, and what he’s most excited to see about the Redskins for next season (via CSN Washington): Read more »

Torrence Brings A Ring Back To Redskins

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 10, 2012 – 4:53 pm

AP Image

Welcome back to Washington, Leigh Torrence.

After a three-year hiatus from the Burgundy and Gold, Torrence is back in Washington for his second stint with the team. While he once played for Joe Gibbs and Jim Zorn in the 4-3 scheme, he will now have to adjust to Mike Shanahan’s 3-4, and Jim Haslett’s emphasis on creating turnovers.

As a career-backup (one start, in 2007), Torrence has two career interceptions and one return for a touchdown.  In 25 games for the Redskins from 2006-08,  he compiled 42 tackles, one sack and two passes defensed.

At age 30, he isn’t the young, developing player that he was when he left.  But he still has the ability to play defense and special teams, with the worldliness factor that can help mold his younger teammates. Read more »
