Found December 29, 2011 on Redskins Blog:
It must be college football bowl season in the Redskins locker room, as intra-team smack talk has risen to a new level.  Last night saw the resolution to the Holiday Bowl between Lorenzo Alexander’s Golden Bears and Brian Orakpo’s Longhorns. Tonight’s matchup between Graham Gano’s Seminoles and Eric Olsen’s Fighting Irish in the Champs Sports Bowl has also yielded some wardrobe wagers: @EOlsen69 WHEN FSU wins tonight you wear a FSU shirt tomorrow. If the irish win, I'll wear a lucky charms shirt…deal?— Graham Gano (@grahamgano) December 29, 2011 “@grahamgano: @EOlsen69 WHEN FSU wins tonight you wear a FSU shirt tomorrow. If the irish win, I'll wear a lucky charms shirt…deal?” DEAL!— Eric Olsen (@EOlsen69) December 29, 2011 So it looks like the bet is on.  We’ll see who shows up for a sheepish interview tomorrow during open locker room.  I wonder if Markus White gets lumped into this bet if Notre Dame wins? More public humiliation for all to enjoy.

Rex Grossman’s confidence ‘is at an all-time high’

As he enters the final game of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles, Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman said that his confidence is “at an all-time high.” Grossman has thrown 15 touchdown passes and 2,895 yards – both the second-highest totals for his career -- and has completed 58.8 of his passes (a career best).

Alexander Pays Dues For His Alma Mater

Special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander is a native of Berkley, Calif. and a proud former California Golden Bear.  Only one thing could ever make him wear the colors of another team, and his name is Brian Orakpo. The story behind the wardrobe dysfunction stems from last night’s game Holiday Bowl game between Alexander’s Bears and Orakpo’s Longhorns.  Orakpo–who has a penchant...

Redskins' Mike Shanahan started scouting college QBs at midseason

Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan acknowledged Friday he began watching game film of college quarterbacks at midseason.

DALY: Wins override merit when it comes to Pro Bowl selection

ANALYSIS/OPINION: Once a year, the NFL and its legions of fans remind us that the Washington Redskins barely exist. This message is delivered, painfully and publicly, on NFL Network's Pro Bowl Selection Show. Most seasons, the Redskins are thrown a crumb or two — which is bad enough — but ...

No Redskins picked for Pro Bowl

The 5-10 Washington Redskins did not have a single player named to the NFC Pro Bowl roster that was announced Tuesday night.
