  • DeAngelo Hall Mentoring Rookie Holsey


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins drafted Josh Holsey in the seventh round of the NFL Draft, hoping he can help improve their secondary. After he was drafted, Holsey’s cornerbacks coach with the Auburn Tigers, placed a call to his former Atlanta Falcons teammate DeAngelo Hall, asking him to take care of the rookie.

    While speaking with the Redskins official website, Hall said he has been keeping an eye on Holsey and thinks he is a hell of a football player that can play in the NFL. He also added that since the Redskins secondary is so deep, he might not get a lot of playing time unless a few players get hurt.

    Hall suffered a season ending injury last season and hasn’t been able to participate in training camp. Despite not being able to practice with his teammates, Hall has been helping Holsey out from the sidelines, getting him ready for the start of the season.

    Holsey told reporters that Hall has taken him under his wing and has been trying to teach him everything he has learned over the years. He added that Hall has been picking up on things he is doing wrong but doesn’t notice, and has been pointing them out to him, which has already been paying dividends.

    Even though Hall has been converted to a safety, he spent the first 11 years of his NFL career as a cornerback, making three Pro Bowl appearances.

    Hall said he is trying to impart some of the wisdom he has acquired during his time in the league to help Holsey become a better player. He also said he is pleased that their conversations haven’t been one-sided because Holsey has been receptive to the mentoring and ask as many questions as he can.

    Hall asks Holsey what he sees on certain plays and what he was thinking at the time, then tells him what he would have done in the same situation, and how to put himself in a position to make a play.

    The relationship between the two seems to be paying off because Holsey has made some great plays in training camp. The rookie had two interceptions on Friday. Holsey credited his improvement in training camp to Hall and the pointers he has been giving him.

    While Hall and Holsey have formed a great relationship, the players came into the league under different circumstances. Hall was a highly rated cornerback coming out of Virginia Tech, and only seven players were selected ahead of him. Holsey on the other hand was one of the last players taken in the draft, and only 10 players were selected after him.

    Holsey does have something in common with Hall, which is the fact that they both have a history of knee injuries. Since Holsey was one of the last players taken in the draft, the team won’t hesitate to release him if he doesn’t continue to impress during the preseason. His best shot may be at the practice squad.

    E.J. Bibbs Hopes to Land Spot on Redskins Final Roster


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins made tight end E.J. Bibbs their first training camp signee last Thursday, after an impressive showing during his tryout. With Bibbs, the Redskins now have six tight ends on the 90-man roster. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the NFL odds for the Washington Redskins.

    After he earned the roster spot, Bibbs got to practice with his new teammates. He told reporters that he thought he was just coming in to try out and expected a pretty easy day. However, after making the team, he had to practice after the tryouts as well. Although he admitted he was a little tired, he acknowledged that the rigorous workouts and practice are part of football.

    Opportunities to sign with a team after workouts don’t come around very often, unless there is an injury or injuries. In Bibbs’ case, the injuries are to Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Reed, who is currently on the physically unable to perform list, and Vernon Davis, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

    Kirk Cousins Relying on Faith to Guide His Career


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins failed to achieve one of their biggest offseason goals, which was to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a long-term contract. Now, they go into the season hoping they can figure out how to keep Cousins on the team for longer than another year. If you want to bet on the Redskins this season, check out the 2017 football odds for Washington Redskins.

    After the team was unable to reach a long-term deal with Cousins, the team issued a statement in which they said they offered the quarterback a $53 million deal but they didn’t get a response from Cousins or any of his reps. Read the rest of this entry »

    Doctson has Big Shoes to Fill in Washington


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Last season, the Washington Redskins used the 22nd pick in the draft to select Josh Doctson. At the time, the Redskins envisioned Doctson as a player that could become their best receiver in the future, after a successful collegiate career in which he had 25 touchdowns in two seasons with the TCU Horned Frogs. If you want to bet on the Redskins, check out the football odds for this season.

    By selecting him with the 22nd pick, the Redskins were clearly impressed by what they saw from Doctson, who is 6 feet 2 inches tall and ran a 4.5 40 during pre-draft workouts. With Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson in the final year of their contracts, the Redskins were hoping Doctson would learn from the veterans and establish himself as a legitimate deep threat.

    The Redskins weren’t able to see Doctson in action as much as they would have liked because he dealt with an Achilles injury that ended his season in October after being put on Injured Reserve. In the two games he played, Doctson had 22 catches for 66 yards. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins Beat Eagles And Keep Playoff Hopes Alive


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Carson Wentz drove the Philadelphia Eagles all the way down to the 14-yard line in the game’s dying moments, before Ryan Kerrigan’s eleventh sack of the season, and arguably the most timely, ended their drive, and gave the Washington Redskins a 27-22 victory. Washington ended their two game losing streak, and kept pace with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card playoff hunt. Check all the NFL odds and scores.

    Kirk Cousins had a rather pedestrian day with just 234 passing yards, but he threw two touchdown passes, including an 80-yard bomb to former Eagle DeSean Jackson. That gave Washington a 14-13 lead in the third quarter. He then hooked up with Pierre Garcon for another touchdown, and a 21-13 lead.

    The joy was short lived though, as Cousins would then throw an interception to Leodis McKelvin, and he would return it 29 yards to the Redskins end zone for an Eagles score, and gave them some momentum. But at 21-19, the Eagles went for two and failed to convert when a pass to Jordan Matthews was batted down. Read the rest of this entry »

    Cardinals Put Cog in Redskins Playoff Hopes


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    After four lead changes in the second half alone, Carson Palmer hit J.J. Nelson with a 42-yard pass with less than two minutes remaining, to take a 31-23 lead and put the game away for good. In the process, the Redskins lost their grip on the second wild card spot as they fell to 6-5-1; and coupled with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers win, put the Redskins on the outside looking in, as they drive for the playoffs over their last four games. You can check an American site that offers updated NFL lines for this week’s pertinent playoff match-ups.

    Palmer threw for 300 yards and three touchdowns on the day, but second year running back David Johnson was the difference maker.

    He not only scored twice, but led all running backs in carries and yards (18 for 84), while simultaneously leading all receivers in both receptions and yards (9 for 91). He scored one on the ground, and one in the air for good measure. The Redskins didn’t appear to have an answer for him all day. Read the rest of this entry »

    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Redskins beat the Green Bay Packers, and soundly. Every Redskins player seemed to deliver their best possible performance.

    And then there was Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder, who delivered 116 yards and one touchdown, and 102 yards and one touchdown, respectively.  Read the rest of this entry »

    Flashback Friday: This Day in 1985


    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    On this day, November 18th in 1985, the Washington Redskins lost their quarterback to one of the most horrific injuries ever broadcast on live TV.

    Joe Theismann suffered a horrific compound fracture of his leg while being sacked by New York Giants linebackers Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson during a Monday Night Football game at RFK Stadium.

    Theismann said during a 2005 interview with the New York Times:

    “The pain was unbelievable, it snapped like a breadstick. It sounded like two muzzled gunshots off my left shoulder. Pow, pow! It was at that point, I also found out what a magnificent machine the human body is. Almost immediately, from the knee down, all the feeling was gone in my right leg. The endorphins had kicked in, and I was not in pain.”

    An ESPN poll voted it, the NFL’s “Most Shocking Moment in History”.

    The Washington post dubbed it, “The Hit That No One Who Saw It Can Ever Forget”.

    Which is absolutely true. You can’t unsee it no matter how hard you try.

    But here it is if you dare…
