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

One stat that should make DeSean Jackson very dangerous against Eagles

One stat that should make DeSean Jackson very dangerous against Eagles

The Eagles defense is on a big-play streak, but not one that defensive coordinators will like very much, and it could be very good news for the Redskins and DeSean Jackson. 

At this stage of his career, Jackson is a well-known deep threat. While much of the 2016 season has been disappointing for Jackson, in back-to-back weeks, the vertical passing attack has worked. In Arizona last Sunday, Jackson only caught one pass, but it went for 59 yards. On Thanksgiving in Dallas, Jackson hauled in a 67-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins as part of his season-high 118 receiving yards.

"What he brings to this football team, he brings something that not a lot of people can bring, and that’s obviously the speed and the big play ability," 'Skins head coach Jay Gruden said of Jackson.

The last two games moved Jackson's yards-per-catch average back in normal range with the rest of his career at 16.5. Halfway through this season, Jackson was averaging below 14 YPC, which would have been by far the worst of his career.

"A lot of people think that we haven’t utilized his speed quite like we should, but I think he has had a major impact on this football team," Gruden said. "His deep threat has an impact on the defense. It opens up areas for Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder and the backs sometimes. He’s been a major influence for this football team in a good way."

Beyond just the big plays, the Eagles defense has given up 645 passing yards in their last two games. Cousins has historically played well in Philadelphia, and should be in good position to do the same this weekend.

And based on the Eagles' past six games, expect Jackson to have another big game at Lincoln Financial Field.
