Phil Daniels Joins ‘School Of The Legends’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 9, 2012 – 12:45 pm

As awesome as this picture is, I don’t think we’re found the next franchise quarterback.

Former Redskins defensive lineman Phillip Daniels has only been out of the NFL for a year, but he’s already back to football, lined up in a three-point stance behind the keyboard.

Daniels played in 82 games over six seasons in Washington, providing brute strength and consistency at the 4-3 defensive end position.  He has remained vocal in his support of the Burgundy and Gold in retirement, and now joins the more than 2,300 active and retired players on the NFLPA’s “School of the Legends” online forum, to share his analysis and expertise.

Fox: A Win Builds Resumes, Spoils Eagles

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 30, 2011 – 12:46 pm

In his weekly Redskins preview for School of the Legends, former Redskins safety Vernon Fox outlines what the Redskins still have to play for this Sunday.  While the most immediate prospects are personal pride, the two other outcomes are more important:

1. Beat a division opponent.  Believe it or not, the Eagles are actually 4-1 against NFC East opponents, including a win over the Redskins in Washington.  Beat them now, ensure that they finish with a losing record (7-9), and avenge the Week 6 loss.

2. Build for next year.  The evaluation process in football is ongoing, but it begins in earnest after the season ends.  Whether it’s evaluating needs in free agency or the draft, there are areas that the team will look to improve.  A favorable last impression will help the players stay in Washington or find a job elsewhere.  Like it or not, Sunday is the last time that this version of the Redskins will ever take the field.

Check out his full analysis, with a shout-out to London Fletcher, below: Read more »

Vernon Fox: Patient Perspective Is Key

Posted by Brian Tinsman on November 1, 2011 – 5:15 pm

Former Redskins safety Vernon Fox is a former Redskins player, a Redskins fan, and a Redskins analyst.  But he is not a Redskins apologist, as he offers his weekly perspective on the direction of the team.

His advice to the players?  Keep swingin’.

His advice to fans?  Hang in there.

One of the highlights of this week’s assessment is his tip of the cap to Redskins linebacker London Fletcher.

“Listen, this is the sign of a key iron man,” Fox said of his former teammate.  “This guy went out and still played in the game injured.  Now there are guys all over the league that struggle with hamstring injuries, that are out multiple weeks.  He went out and fought through the pain, had 19 tackles, an interception, and a half sack.  It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Here’s Fox’s take on what everyone should do to ride out the rough patch: Read more »

McIntosh Has Top-Rated New Show

Posted by Brian Tinsman on September 21, 2011 – 10:15 am

Redskins fans have seen Rocky McIntosh at outside linebacker, inside linebacker, and now finally as a top news correspondent.


McIntosh’s new online show “52 Seconds with Rocky McIntosh,” is a creation of the NFL Players Association School of The Legends website.  After it’s first week, his show was ranked No. 1 of the 64 player correspondents.

Among the topics that he discusses in last week’s video, is the joy of beating the Giants (a first, for him), the keys to the Cardinals game, and the faith that he has in “Sexy Rexy.”  Probably the more relevant aspect of the interview at this point is his look at Graham Gano’s locker.

There’s nothing like surprising a teammate with a camera crew to rummage through his things.

The other side of this project is the former player correspondent, Redskins safety Vernon Fox.  Fox was a member of the Redskins from 2006-07, and interviewed former teammate Reed Doughty in this week’s segment.

Doughty talks about how in his six years in Washington, he’s played for three head coaches and defensive coordinators, and 17 different safeties.  He attributed his longevity with the team to “dependability, accountability, and durability.”

“I’ve been versatile, playing defense, special teams, dime, free safety, strong safety–really, whatever they need,” he said. I’ve just taken the opportunity, where if there’s a job that I can learn on the back end of the defense, I’ll learn it. Just in case there’s somebody that needs to step in at gametime, they can count on me.”

He said that his favorite memory with the Redskins was the game after Sean Taylor’s tragic passing, in which the defense took the field with only 10 players, pointing towards the sky. Read more »
