Unique Redskins Book is Back in Print

The return of the Redskins to the elite of the NFL has spurred the comeback of a Redskins classic.

The Redskins From A to Z, Volume 1: The Games is being reprinted. This unique book chronicles every game the Redskins played from their arrival in Washington in 1937 through the 2001 season. Fans can find information about buying the book by going to www.redskinsgames.com.

If you’re a Redskins fan, you’ve got to have this book.

Author and publisher Rich Tandler says that the decision to make another print run of the book came directly as result of the team’s return to the NFL playoffs after a five-year absence.

“Naturally, with the great play of the Redskins this year, there was a tremendous upswing in interest in all aspects of the team, including its history,” said Tandler. “All of a sudden people were coming out of the woodwork wanting to know everything they could about the Washington Redskins. Many of them had heard about The Redskins From A to Z, but for whatever reason they hadn’t bought it.”

For a while, they were out of luck. The first three printings of the book had sold out and Tandler wasn’t planning on printing any more copies anytime soon. That was before the number of requests for the book grew to a point where Tandler couldn’t continue to turn them down.

“I was very satisfied with how well the book had done,” said Tandler. “I figured that it had run its course and I’d wait a few years before updating and reprinting it. Little did I know that the team would finish the season so strong and start a whole new wave of interest in the book.”

Tandler cautions that those interested in getting their hands on the book had better act soon. The size of the printing run will be limited and the books will be distributed on a first-paid, first-served basis at www.RedskinsGames.com  

Since its publication in 2002, the media members covering the Redskins have used the book as an invaluable aid in their research. “This book is a true gem for any Redskins fan,” said Steve Czaban of Fox Sports Radio and Sports Talk 980, “and the definitive last word when it comes to setline bar bets on Skins factoids you won’t find in any media guide!”

“Rich has captured the highlights of each game,” said John Keim of the Washington Examiner, “telling us more than just who scored. He just made my job easier when it comes to researching Redskins history.”

The Redskins From A to Z is still the only book that chronicles every game that any sports team, college or pro, has played.

“It was unique when it came out,” said Tandler. “And, as far is I know, there still is nothing like it out there. I’ve looked, I’ve asked, I’ve Googled, and I still haven’t found any other book that goes into the detail of every game a team has played.”

The book is available exclusively online at www.RedskinsGames.com

Redskins' Doug Williams presents a special jersey to family of Jim Vance

On July 22, legendary D.C. broadcaster Jim Vance died at the age of 75.

During the first day of training camp on Thursday, Washington Redskins VP of player personnel Doug Williams, presented NBC4 sports reporter Carol Maloney with a gift for Vance's family.

RELATED: REMEMBERING JIM VANCE

The gesture by the Redskins was one filled with much respect for the award-winning anchor.

Vance was a staple for many D.C. locals, being a full-time anchor since 1972 for NBC4. 

Last summer, Vance revealed he had been diagnosed with cancer but never stopped working.

LIVE Redskins training camp practice report: Day 1

LIVE Redskins training camp practice report: Day 1

RICHMOND—The Redskins took the field for their first practice of the season. Jordan Reed is missing as was the usual stifling heat at the Bon Secours training center.It's warm but the humidity is down from the normal late-July sauna here. 

Here are my observations from practice as it unfolds. Come back and refresh often for the latest:

—Jamison Crowder still appears to be the No. 1 punt returner. Also fielding kicks off of the leg of Tress Way were Maurice Harris, Chris Thompson, and Will Blackmon. 

—The Redskins are practicing without pads per collective bargaining rules. A few are wearing shells. 

—New tight end EJ Bibbs just introduced himself to Vernon Davis as they were getting ready for some individual drills. Reminds me of a few year ago when a just acquired player was participating in stretching and they brought his contract out onto the field for him to sign. He wouldn’t have been able to practice otherwise. 

—Kirk Cousins just acknowledged a fan lined up near the sideline. ‘How’s it going, Derrick?” Derrick’s friends were properly impressed. 

—Maurice Harris showed good form in catching a Cousins pass over the middle against no defense. Nothing spectacular but but a good job reaching forward to pull in a pass that was ahead of him. 

—Harris with another nice catch, this time guarded over the middle by Will Blackmon. He is off to a good start in competing for playing time.

—Torian Gray is admonishing his defensive backs to “wake up, wake up.” On one rep he wanted Tevin Homer to “drive to the ball.”

—It looked like Josh Doctson had a step on Bashaud Breeland on a deep pass but the CB recovered and knocked the pass away. 

—A few plays later Doctson got deep again, this time against Quinton Dunbar. This time the CB couldn’t catch up and Doctson hauled in the pass.

—In the early going in 11 on 11, Will Compton and Mason Foster are the inside LBs with the first team and Joey Mbu is at nose tackle. Both situations could change over the course of the next few weeks. 

—Nice cut by Keith Marshall on a run around right end. He planted his foot and cut upfield with some serious burst. He’s a dark horse when it comes to making the roster but I’m keeping an eye on him. 

—Cousins with a dart to Terrelle Pryor along the sideline. A sharp and accurate throw. 

—Rain is approaching but it should hold off until practice is over. Meanwhile, the clouds and breeze are cooling things down. Nobody is complaining.  

—Pryor was assigned to block Josh Norman on a running play. Norman made a business decision not to contest the block and there was light contact as Norman backed down the field.

—Rookie Robert Davis made a solid back-shoulder catch on the sideline. I’m not sure if Colt McCoy intended for the pass to be back shoulder but that was where it went and Davis reached to make the grab. 

—What was that? Nate Sudfeld heaved one downfield to nobody in particular. Kendall Fuller got an easy interception, his second of the day. 

—That is from Richmond for today. Come on back tomorrow, we’ll do it again.
