Is Johnny Manziel Incomparable?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 21, 2014 – 12:14 pm

(Two Heisman winners from Texas, AP)

A smoky garnish of sadness arrived alongside my chopped beef sandwich on an otherwise celebratory night at an Adams Morgan barbecue joint.

I was happy Texas A&M beat Duke on New Year’s Eve. I was happy to celebrate the holiday with friends and fatty cow cuts. I was a little glum I’d never see Johnny Manziel play college football again.

Manziel was as transfixing a quarterback as I’ve seen play for  scholarship dollars. The jackrabbit from Tivy High School in Kerrville, Texas, routinely stepped out of tackles, changed directions and improvised from 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage until he either ran past defenders or completed jump-balls he had no business heaving. He was also an oil heir making it rain for all to see, unapologetically  showcasing the collegiate celebrity life in 140 characters or less. Still, Manziel survived his senior season without a debilitating scandal. He missed the first half of a game against Rice, which the Aggies won by 19 points, but otherwise continued throwing up dollar signs and baiting columnists. He shared how the “Johnny Football” celebrity affected him, engendering sympathy or loathing depending on how you felt.

Now with the NFL Scouting Combine kicking off in Indianapolis, Manziel has sculpted a narrative of growth and maturity while maintaining the brashness that fuels his brand. He will address the media but won’t throw.

Until they hear from the man himself, Manziel’s best use for NFL scribes is as a comparison to past players, a swizzle stick for debate. Read more »

Why, Kevin Durant? WHY?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 29, 2014 – 11:00 am

Please step away from the quarterback, Kevin.

I understand you want to support of any fan who attends a Thunder game, but we can’t have your mojo rubbing off on Tony Romo.

The biggest Redskins fan in the NBA posed for a picture with the Cowboys quarterback after defeating the Atlanta Hawks with a 12-foot dagger he drained 1.5 seconds before the final buzzer. As of Wednesday, Durant leads the NBA with 31.3 points per game. He’s topped 30 points in the last 11 games he played and scored at least 40 five times in January alone.

Durant is not fond of the “Slim Reaper” moniker, but maybe his touch will have a deathly effect on Romo’s late-game heroics against the Redskins. We still love you, Kevin.

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 24, 2013 – 4:38 pm



The first two days of Mike Shanahan’s work week were devoted to the New York Giants.

Wednesday will be an opportunity for the coach to carve out some time for his six grandkids.

On Tuesday, the coach talked to the press about how the coaching staff and the players alter their schedules for the holiday, Pierre Garcon’s impact on Washington’s ability to win and his reaction to Tony Romo’s injury news. He also discussed his relationship with Bruce Allen and the latest changes to the roster.

Vote DeAngelo Hall To The Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 24, 2013 – 9:30 am


(AP) The 2011 Pro Bowl MVP

The visitors are a part of DeAngelo Hall’s pregame routine.

Every Sunday before kickoff,  an opposing coach will find Hall to pay respect to the three-time Pro Bowler.

“There hasn’t been a coach that we’ve played that hasn’t … told me how good of a season I’m having, just to keep it up and keep playing hard,” Hall said in an interview last Friday.

“Coaches in this league, players in this league and hopefully the fans can kind of see what I bring to the table. ”

When Hall picked off Tony Romo in the second half of a 24-23 loss to Dallas last Sunday, he tallied his eighth season with at least four interceptions.

With only a few days left to vote for the Pro Bowl, Hall strengthened his case to make the annual all-star game for the fourth time. Read more »

Inside Sonny’s Office: Jurgensen On Kirk Cousins, Tony Romo And Dallas Week

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 20, 2013 – 4:55 pm



Sonny Jurgensen visits Redskins Park on Fridays and receives guests in his honorary office, a black leather couch in the lobby. There’s even a nameplate. I like to stop by and ask Sonny a few quick questions about quarterbacks and matchups. This week’s brief chat covered his impressions of Kirk Cousins’ start in Atlanta, his thoughts on Tony Romo and his recollection of playing the Cowboys.

Gabe Hiatt: What sticks out to you from your memories of playing the Dallas Cowboys?

Sonny Jurgensen: They were a very good football team when they had Tom Landry as their coach. It was always a challenge to us, and we enjoyed the challenge. We could score 30 points and lose, 31-30. They were good games, competitive games. We won our share.

Haslett: ‘It’s Incredible What He’s Done’

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 19, 2013 – 4:17 pm



Jim Haslett got his turn to commend London Fletcher.

On Thursday, a day after Fletcher announced he would likely retire at the end of the season, the defensive coordinator talked to the media about the inside linebacker’s legendary durability and unparalleled preparation.

Haslett also spoke about how Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo stack up to pass rushers around the league and the positive play of Tony Romo.

Ryan Kerrigan Talks Shanahan, Defense

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 16, 2013 – 2:44 pm

Kerrigan AMRyan Kerrigan appeared on NFL AM Monday morning and talked about his sanctuary.

With a quarterback change attracting added media attention in 2013, Kerrigan told the NFL Network crew that the football field is the best place to be.

“It’s tough to have all the distractions around, but at the same time, once you step in between the lines, that’s kind of our sanctuary,” Kerrigan said.

We kind of get away from all the distractions and just concentrate on playing football once we get in between the lines.”

The panel asked Kerrigan if the locker room was still behind Executive Vice President and Head Coach Mike Shanahan, and Kerrigan supported the man who brought him to D.C. Read more »

Redskins Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em Week 6 Edition

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on October 13, 2013 – 8:00 am



Monte Kiffin’s Tampa 2 is not what it used to be. Statistically, Dallas’ defense is near the bottom of the heap, while Washington has the worst-ranked unit in football. Thus, members of the fantasy fooball media expect big numbers from both teams on Sunday.

Two sites have Redskins as their starts of the week.

NFL.com’s Michael Fabiano named Alfred Morris, who carried Washington to the NFC East title with a 200-yard, three touchdown performance in the 2012 regular season finale, as his start of the week. Your decision to start Moris comes down to how much you want to believe in the home team. Morris tore up the Cowboys last year, but as bad as the passing defense has been in Dallas, the Cowboys are ranked fourth in rushing defense.

Alf Start of the Week

Fabiano also likes Robert Griffin III at Dallas, which has allowed 400-yard passing performances in three out of five games.

VIDEO: Griffin III Consoles Romo On Field

Posted by Andrew Walker on January 2, 2013 – 9:57 pm

There weren’t many people at FedExField last Sunday who felt bad for Tony Romo.

But after Romo threw three interceptions in the 28-18 loss to the Redskins — including a pick late in the fourth quarter to outside linebacker Rob Jackson that led to Washington’s final touchdown — the Dallas Cowboys quarterback had at least one supporter wearing burgundy and gold.
