With the 2018 season now compelte, it's time to look back and reflect at some of the top moments of the Redskins campaign. Redskins.com will be revisiting our favorite parts of the year.
Here, we’ll look back at our five favorite Redskins tweets.
1. The Red River Rivalry Parts 1 and 2
The Redskins feature an Oklahoma-heavy roster. Besides Alabama, Sooner nation owns the second largest portion of the locker room. As for Texas, Colt McCoy is the lone Longhorn. So, when it came time for the two teams to face off, things got a little heated at Redskins Park. In this case, Colt did the right thing by taking the stairs. The glares from AP, Trent, Tress and Samaje are too much for anyone to overcome, no matter how big your fandom may be.
A few months later, the Texas and Oklahoma bad blood was revisited as the team's prepared to meet in the Big 12 Championship game. Though outnumbered, Colt now had the upper hand thanks to Texas' win in the first matchup. A savvy move here by the quarterback to trick his teammates into watching a moment they'd much rather forget.
2. Vernon Davis: The Actor
The Redskins tight end has shown off his acting skill numerous times before. Featured in shows like "The League" and movies such as "Baywatch," we know Davis has was it takes to be a star in Hollywood. He shows that once again here, but the more impressive part of this video to me is Jeremy Sprinkle. Sprinkle said in a Q&A that he has been learning acting skills from Davis, and he demonstrated it here. He really sold his disappointment and embarrassment, and for that he deserves an Oscar.
3. Focused On The Hat
It's been well-documented that NBA star and D.C. native Kevin Durant is a lifelong Redskins fan. Though he may now be situated on the west coast, Durant has proven that you never forget your roots. During what was an interesting press conference surrounding the Golden State Warriors, there was only one thing we were paying attention to: that beautiful hat. KD is perfectly rocking the Burgundy and Gold with a nice change of pace on the overall hat color. We're also 100 positive that "HTTR" was playing in his mind throughout the entire conference.
Fox Sports personality Skip Bayless in an interesting character and a big supporter of the Dallas Cowboys. So, after the Redskins defeated their rivals in Week 7, it became a perfect opportunity to have a little fun at his expense. Drawing on his video of the Cowboys new "strut dance," we decided to remind Skip of what had just happened to his beloved team and make some improvements on his video.
Following their first matchup against each other, running backs Adrian Peterson and Saquon Barkley exchanged some words at midfield and demonstrated the mutual admiration they have for each other. Peterson mentioned throughout the season how he views Barkley as one of the next great running backs, and how he was excited for a chance to play against him. In this case, it was the veteran coming out on top, with Peterson running for 149 yards and scoring twice in the Redskins' 20-13 win. Seeing the two NFL stars share a moment of appreciation was the icing on the cake during Washington's Week 8 victory.
