A.J. Francis Played Football at Maryland and for the Washington Football Team. Now, He’s a Rising WWE Star.

“I won’t be satisfied with what I’ve accomplished until I get the WWE Championship.”

A.J. Francis, a former Washington Football Team defensive tackle and ascendant WWE prospect, did not care much for bedtime stories growing up. He preferred bedtime professional wrestling matches. Every night, when his father, Mike, swung open the door to their Severn, Maryland, home, there would be Francis, an oversized 3-year-old boy in the flesh but…

The Huddle Is Gallaudet’s Lasting Mark on Football

How a Deaf quarterback took a football staple to the end zone.

Football season is back baybeeeeeeeee! Last night, the 2021 NFL season kicked off with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers eeking out a win against the Dallas Cowboys, 31-29. The Washington Football Team will take the field against the Los Angeles Chargers at 1 p.m. this Sunday. One of the biggest staples of football is the huddle.…

The 2021 Washington Football Team Season Is Whatever You Want It to Be, Honestly

It could bring continued growth and development, or it might just turn out to be more of the same. That actually represents improvement.

During the Great Kirk Cousins Wars of 2016 and 2017, the factions on both sides developed some shared conventional wisdom about the quarterback: namely, whatever you wanted his statistics and actions to prove, they could prove. Cousins routinely racked up counting stats (good quarterback!), but frequently failed to deliver in crucial games (bad leader!). He…

Dan Snyder Escaped Accountability for the Washington Football Team’s Toxic Culture

Snyder may never be forced to sell the team, but there will be more stories, more public embarrassment, and likely more lawsuits.

Following attorney Beth Wilkinson’s review of the Washington Football Team’s workplace, the NFL determined the organization’s culture was so toxic it warranted the biggest fine in league history. That alone is a damning indictment of owner Dan Snyder and his team. The report also confirmed a litany of previously reported allegations about the men who…

Vince Promuto, a Washington Football Team Great, Competed With True Grit

Promuto, who died June 1 at age 82, played at 245 pounds, while men lining up on the other side of the line often outweighed him by 30 to 40 pounds.

The world can seem so small sometimes. How else to explain how I got to know Vince Promuto, a starting offensive lineman for the Washington Football Team back in the 1960s and a man some consider among the toughest players in the team’s storied history.My wife is a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, native, and her parents…

Washington Football Team President Jason Wright Has a Passion for Soccer

Several big names, including Wright and Olympic champion Dominique Dawes, watched the Spirit beat Racing Louisville FC, 1-0, at Audi Field.

Jason Wright loves football. American football, obviously. But he loves the game much of the rest of the world calls football, as well. His 7-year-old son plays soccer, his 10-year-old daughter is a Manchester United supporter (“She likes Paul Pogba,” Wright explains), and he had D.C. United season tickets prior to the pandemic. He’s also…

At Least the Washington Football Team Won’t Be Boring With Ryan Fitzpatrick

This is a fanbase that is starved for fun.

There’s a complaint I find myself raising about all the D.C.-area sports teams: They are boring. I have a tendency to level this complaint whether it is accurate—hello, Maryland men’s basketball—or not—hi there, Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook scoring a billion points while leading the Wizards to another mediocre season! The Washington Football Team is coming…

Playoff Loss Reveals What the Washington Football Team Needs in Its Next Quarterback

Taylor Heinicke’s playoff performance was the most thrilling display by any Washington quarterback all year.

When Taylor Heinicke joined the New England Patriots’ practice squad for part of the 2017 season, he wanted to make a strong impression on his first day. The quarterback pulled up to the team’s facility before 5:30 a.m., vowing to be the first one at work. He wasn’t. Heinicke soon realized he’d been beaten there…

The Washington Football Team Is Improving. Dan Snyder Still Needs to Go.

Let’s talk about a well-deserved firing from last week, and another that Washington fans should hope comes soon.

It’s time to focus on firings.  First, Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson ought to be ashamed of himself. He embarrassed his franchise by tanking Sunday night’s loss to the Washington Football Team in a highly significant game, and deserves to be fired by his team owner or at least substantially fined by the NFL commissioner…

The Washington Football Team’s Wild and Unpredictable Journey to the Playoffs

Maybe the upside to the dizzying news throughout 2020 is that there won’t be another year like it.

Summarizing the Washington Football Team’s year, one packed with countless headlines and drama, is nearly impossible. But let’s try, anyway. Washington retired its controversial and racist nickname and adopted a temporary moniker for the season and potentially beyond. It hired a promising coach in Ron Rivera, but he was dealt his own surprise in the…
