Mother Nature graces the DMV with brisk winter breezes during the month of February, causing many to be slightly on the grouchy side at times as they wait for the flowers to bloom and for family beach vacation season to kick into gear.
Today, however, spirits among the masses seems to be a little more cheery than a usual day during the shortest month of the year. There’s been an increase in heart-shaped objects, bouquets of flowers, and people ignoring their beach-bod diets in favor of adding some chocolate to their routines.
It’s almost like there’s a feeling of love in the air.
Well folks that’s because today is Valentine’s Day, the annual day of love!
Redskins Nation has a lot to love during this holiday as we are currently under blue skies, Punxsutawney Phil ( for those of you who don’t know, Phil is the famous groundhog of Groundhog Day) saw his shadow forecasting spring is on its way, and knowing that their favorite football team shocked the league this season claiming the NFC East title may be the sweetest treat of all!
The Redskins themselves have caught the love bug and have been spending their day with loved ones.
Find out what some of the players have been doing after being struck with Cupid’s arrow here:

The Super Bowl has come and gone which means it’s time to turn our attention to April’s NFL Draft. So join us as we begin to focus on certain team needs and start to analyze the prospects preparing to make the jump from college to the pros. The next few months should be a fun ride.
This year’s draft is as important as ever for the Redskins to build on this year’s success. It’s important to add key pieces so that the team can continue to make positive strides without taking any steps backwards.
There are many question marks that the team will need to address.
Who will the Redskins select? Will they address the needs in the secondary? What’s the status of linebacker London Fletcher? Will Robert Griffin III be ready for training camp? These are all questions that will slowly, but surely, be answered over the course of the next few months.
And if you all are wondering what moves are brewing at Redskins Park or if there is a magical potion being concocted to help address the void left by football, sorry. We have no secret ingredient to remedy the heartache that the offseason brings.
Coaches are studying game film as the process of preparing the playbooks for next year starts. The scouts are watching tape of college players as they start to finalize their draft and free agent boards. And decisions are being made as the coaches decide which players will return before the free agency period begins on March 12.
If you are coming to us for insider info, we don’t have any top secret information to divulge just yet, but what I can tell you is that we are feeling the same effects as you, a sense of helplessness that is the void left by football.
Problem solved if games were year around. Unfortunately, the players association probably would never agree to that deal. But, I digress.
We’re bringing you yet another Social Media Weekly Spotlight, including a message from LB London Fletcher for Dallas fans! You’ll like what the savvy vet had to say.

Good morning Redskins Nation, and welcome to one of the
biggest corporate holidays most romantic days of the year: Happy Valentine’s Day!
In a month tragically devoid of Redskins football, it’s a good opportunity to pay attention to the spouse that you neglected during football season–husband or wife. Even though Americans are expected to spend $17.6 billion this Feb. 14 ($126.03 per person), just remember that your time and effort are most important.
And shiny things that fit on fingers, wrists and necks never hurt.
Here are a few Valentine’s-themed tweets and love-life advice from Redskins players with the most “heart”: Read more »

One nice bonus about today’s Capture The Flag charity event was that I was able to get some easy, timely content by asking Chris Cooley and Lorenzo Alexander what they had planned for Valentine’s Day. Cooley’s plans are pretty much what you’d expect: he and wife Christy are heading to a nice restaurant for a fancy dinner. But Alexander plans to have a different sort of Valentine’s Day.
