Found December 02, 2011 on Redskins Blog:
AP Image November is a month dominated by football, Thanksgiving, and the growth of beards and mustaches for a good cause. Call it what you want: Movember, No-Shave-November; but it’s a good opportunity for Redskins players to put down the razors and show what they can grow. Over the course of the month, the players that showed the most effort were receiver Niles Paul, offensive lineman Eric Olsen, and quarterback Jonathan Crompton. Others tried, but it wasn’t meant to be. Naturally, the two best beards on the team are linebacker Perry Riley and nose tackle Chris Neild.  As Neild is clearly the Grand Beard Master, I turned to him for a December 1st Facial Hair Recap. Let’s just say, the birthday boy was not impressed: To recap: 1. Olsen was honorably mentioned and likely takes the prize (with reservation). 2. Winning streaks have nothing to do with Neild’s beard. 3. Neild’s gloves were due for a change. Until next November, this has been your 2011 No-Shave-November/Movember Facia...

Davis had three catches for 53 yards and a touchdown on that opening series. He believes a lot of it has to...

Fred Davis appeared on his way to having a monster game on Sunday, recording three catches for 53 yards and a touchdown on the Washington Redskins’ game-opening scoring drive against the Seattle Seahawks.

Santana Moss on Rex Grossman

After Rex Grossman got benched against the Eagles, he strongly advocated Grossman keep his starting job, saying “that’s not even something that should be asked,” and that Grossman “deserves to start.” Some fans thought that was just what any teammate would say about his starting QB, but it felt considerably stronger than that to me.

Rex Grossman is still confident

Since the NFL Network included the 4-7 Redskins as part of the NFC Playoff Picture last week, I’ve seen more evidence to support the network’s decision. For example, Roger Goodell tweeted that in every season since 2004, a team with a losing record through 11 games has gone to the playoffs, and that six times that team has won a playoff game.

Shanahan Has an Eye on Big Picture

In the NFL, every team is constantly searching for that golden formula to guarantee success. The concept of how to go about it is always evolving, but ultimately if a healthy balance isn’t achieved at every level of the organization, then it’s very difficult to accomplish much anything. From what I gather, that balance hasn’t been instilled in the Washington Redskins organization...
