    NFL STATEMENT 

     

    Following more than ten months of intensive and thorough negotiations, the NFL Players and clubs have jointly developed a comprehensive set of new and revised terms that will transform the future of the game, provide for players – past, present, and future – both on and off the field, and ensure that the NFL's second century is even better and more exciting for the fans.  
     

    The membership voted today to accept the negotiated terms on the principal elements of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.  The Players Association would also need to vote to approve the same terms for there to be a new agreement.

     

    Since the clubs and players need to have a system in place and know the rules that they will operate under by next week, the membership also approved moving forward under the final year of the 2011 CBA if the players decide not to approve the negotiated terms.  Out of respect for the process and our partners at the NFLPA, we will have no further comment at this time.

    REDSKINS EXERCISE 2020 CLUB OPTION ON RB ADRIAN PETERSON

     

    LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have exercised the 2020 club option on RB Adrian Peterson’s contract.

     

    “Adrian Peterson is the epitome of what it means to be a pro in this league,” said Head Coach Ron Rivera. “Adrian’s leadership and passion towards the game of football will set an example of what is expected of the players in this program moving forward.”

     

    Peterson was a team captain and led Washington in attempts (211), rushing yards (898) and rushing touchdowns (5) last season. He was named the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award winner at NFL Honors and was also honored by the local media with the Good Guy award, which is given to a Redskins player who treated the media with respect, professionalism and went above and beyond to help them do their job.

     

    Peterson will enter 2020 having started in 154 of the 164 games he has appeared in. He currently ranks No. 8 in rushing attempts (3,036), No. 5 in rushing yards (14,216), No. 4 in rushing touchdowns (111) and No. 6 in yards per game (86.7) in NFL history. Peterson needs 1,054 rushing yards to pass Barry Sanders for No. 4 all-time and he needs 13 rushing touchdowns to pass Marcus Allen for No. 3 all-time in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns, respectively. 

     

    Peterson has appeared in five postseason contests and has started in all of them. He has registered 116 attempts for 412 yards and five touchdowns along with hauling in six receptions for 54 yards in postseason action. 

     

    Peterson is a seven-time Pro Bowler, has been named First-Team All Pro four times and Second-Team All Pro three times and is a three-time rushing leader. He was named the NFL MVP in 2012 after finishing the season with 348 carries for 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns and was nine yards away from setting the single-season NFL rushing record. He is the last running back to capture the MVP award and is only the fourth to do so in the last 20 years.

    But it’s much more fun imagining @TK as an international spy. Possibly an international assassin on the run from Interpol and hiding out as a mod on an NFL fan website. And in some way, aren’t all real estate agents spy’s?  I mean “agent” is right there in the title.  CIA agent, FBI agent, Real estate agent... all kindof the same. 


    Let me know if I get close @TK

     

    If I tell you, I'll have to kill you. :)

    Wife and I watched the series finale for Power (Starz) yesterday.  I've enjoyed the show over the years, thought it was really great at times.  The ending was lackluster and disappointing imo.  I thought they could have done better, especially after the way they drug the show out by doing a mid-season break for a show on a premium channel, then skipping a week before the finale.

    I think they had said they were going to do spin offs for some of the characters. Get ready for Tariq in the Power versions of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, & Revenge of the Sith :ols: 

     

    I can see it now. 

    TOMMY: "Give it up Tariq. I have the high ground" :rofl89:

    REDSKINS NAME JENNIFER KING FULL-YEAR COACHING INTERN

     

    LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Jennifer King a full-year coaching intern. In her role, King will work with the offensive staff throughout the course of the offseason, training camp and regular season and will specifically assist Randy Jordan with the running backs.  

     

    King comes to the Redskins having coached in the National Football League, the Alliance of American Football and in the college ranks.

     

    “Jennifer is a bright young coach and will be a great addition to our staff,” said Head Coach Ron Rivera. “Her familiarity with my expectations as a coach and my firsthand knowledge of her work ethic and preparation were big factors in bringing her to the Redskins.”

     

    King was most recently an offensive assistant with Dartmouth College. She primarily worked with the wide receivers and created defensive scouting reports and secondary specific scouting reports for the wide receivers. Dartmouth finished the 2019 season 9-1 and captured the Ivy League Championship. The team averaged 33.3 points per game and averaged 382.4 yards per game.

     

    King interned for the Carolina Panthers during the offseason in 2018 and 2019. In 2018, she was an intern wide receivers coach and assisted Lance Taylor with on-field development drills and in position meetings. She assisted with the creation of scouting scheme cards for the opposing defense and charted practice and in-game player participation and defensive schemes. In 2019, she returned to the Panthers in the role of intern running backs coach and worked with the running backs in organized team activities, mandatory mini camp and training camp. She worked one-on-one with rookies on playbook proficiencies and individual skill development along with analyzing drill efficiency and drill concepts. She worked with the Panthers running backs, including Pro Bowl running back Christian McCaffrey. 

     

    In between her two internships with the Panthers, King was an assistant wide receiver coach and special teams assistant for the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football. The Hotshots were 5-3 and tied for first place in the AAF Western Conference before the league disbanded. At the time of the league being dissolved, the Hotshots ranked No. 2 in yards per game (343.9) and points per game (23.2).

     

    King has participated in NFL coaching clinics from 2015-18 and also took part in the NFL Women’s Career in Football Forum in January of 2018. The forum was a highly selective two-day event which connected qualified female candidates for positions in football as coaches, officials, scouts and athletic trainers. 

     

    King also has experience as a player. She was a seven-time All American quarterback and wide receiver for the Carolina Phoenix women’s tackle football team from 2006-17. In 2018 she played wide receiver and defensive back for the New York Sharks women’s tackle football team and captured the 2018 WFA National Championship. Most recently, King played wide receiver and safety in the District for the D.C. Divas women’s tackle football team in 2019.

     

    King also has experience coaching women’s basketball. She was the Head Coach of Johnson & Wales University Charlotte from 2016-18. During King’s tenure the team had an 37-10 record and they captured the USCAA Division II National Championship in 2018. She was named the USCAA Division II National Coach of the Year in 2018. King also was an assistant coach on the Greensboro College women’s basketball staff from 2006-16. During King’s 10 years with the team, they went 136-54, won five conference titles and appeared in the NCAA tournament five times. 

     

    King holds a masters of science in sports administration from Liberty University and holds a bachelor of science in sports management from Guilford College. She was a member of the Guilford College women’s basketball and softball team’s from 2002-06.

    The double forward pass has to be completed and thrown behind the LoS from what I’ve seen. 
     

    Yesterday I’m pretty sure the Zornys tried a shovel RPO but the receiver kept it.

    I caught that play & I think they tried to go for either 2 or 3 after a TD once. 
     

    Seems like so far that coaches are just playing everything safe when it comes to new unique offensive rules.

    Redskins' Derrius Guice wants to silence those labeling him as 'soft', admits 'it's frustrating'

    He has a lot to prove in 2020, but it starts with staying on the field

     

     

     

    Like more than 100 million others, Derrius Guice was tuned into Super Bowl LIV. He witnessed the San Francisco 49ers make it to Miami on the heels of a historic outing by running back Raheem Mostert, and then Damien Williams help power the Kansas City Chiefs past them to land the team's first Lombardi trophy in five decades. Although it was former league MVP Patrick Mahomes taking home the honor of Super Bowl MVP, there's an argument to be made for Williams having earned the award.

    However you slice it, running backs have established they matter, and in big games, and Guice is taking everything he watched in the playoffs to heart. On the heels of the Washington Redskins having again missed the playoffs, the 22-year-old took to Twitter to contemplate what it would feel like to stand on the podium as a league champion.

    It worked for Mahomes, after all, and Guice is hoping for the same magic.

     

    I cannot wait to see how it feels to seal the Super Bowl as a running back 😖

     
     
     
     

    He's no stranger to the narrative surrounding him, however, because it's coming from every direction.

    The coming 2020 season is pivotal for Guice, to say the least. It's Year three for the former second-round pick of the Washington Redskins, but he's played a total of only five games in his first two seasons. Plagued by injury since entering the NFL in 2018, the 22-year-old missed his entire rookie year with torn ACL suffered in his very first preseason game. He'd return to the field in 2019, but he suffered a torn meniscus in his knee in his opening day debut -- requiring surgery to repair it.

    He wouldn't lace up his cleats again until Week 11, but participated in only four games before being placed on injured reserve for the second time in two consecutive seasons, this time with an MCL sprain. All told, the three injuries in a two-year span have many questioning if Guice can remain durable at the NFL level.

    "The main thing is getting through games healthy," Guice said, via The Washington Times. "I've been a practice all-American so far. I'm trying to bring that to the field."

    His absence forced the Redskins to again lean heavily on future Hall of Fame halfback Adrian Peterson, who finished the year with a solid 898 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns at the spry age of 34. It's been Peterson carrying the load as the team's workhorse the last two seasons, and while the Redskins are more than thankful for Peterson playing time-defying football, their plan in 2018 was to transition to Guice being the lead back.

    Thus far, he has only 245 career rushing yards with three rushing touchdowns on 42 carries. Guice understands it's not rocket science -- the more he stays on the field, the faster he can acclimate to the NFL and the more he can produce for the Redskins. With Ron Rivera now at the helm, and with Guice now on the back half of his contract, becoming the running back the team was hoping he could be when they called him in April 2018 will be paramount. 

    This is the same Rivera who drafted and coached up all-world talent Christian McCaffrey, and while no one can justifiably compare Guice to McCaffrey, the point is Rivera will demand availability and top-flight production from his run game. Guice has proven he can produce at the collegiate level from his time at LSU, but his resume is thus far tarnished at the pro level.

    Until he can show an ability to stay healthy, not only does he have something to prove to the team, but also those he wants to silence -- i.e., those painting him as being "soft". 

    "When it comes to constantly being injured -- knowing how tough you are, but everybody else is looking at you as just soft who can't stay on the field, it's gonna frustrate you," Guice said, before jabbing back at those who have him strapped with the label.

    "You just have to realize where you are and realize where they are in a sense," he said. "It's always the people behind you talking the loudest. ...I just gotta keep elevating and moving forward."

    Guice can't escape the criticism, be it from some in the media or fans lobbing their takes at his social media accounts, but what he can do is silence it. That's if, and only if, he can finally bury the stigma surrounding his durability in professional football. 

    It's time to show and prove in 2020, and he knows it.
