Redskins Prepare for Dallas, Playoffs, and Hawaii!

The Redskins, who started the season with a dismal 3-6 record, are hoping to end their season with another win, this season, over the Dallas Cowboys to clinch their first division win in about as many years as their quarterback is old.

Maybe not that long.  But to fans who have been waiting for this seemingly improbable moment in time, it seems like that long.

Fans have waited a long time since having a star quarterback take them to the Promised Land, and a long time to see the team they have loved for so long, even play like an NFL contender.

Houston, we have both.  In the same year.  (Or as Future would have it - @ the same #$#$ time).

So, here we are and just like the regular season, the Redskins are preparing. The organization is already offering up playoff tickets to season ticket holders.

Playoff tickets, if available, will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, Dec. 29.  That's tomorrow.

The two ways for season ticket holders to reserve seats are: Pay-When-We-Are-In (credit card only) or Pay In Full (check or money order).

I'll explain.
1)  Pay-When-We-Are-In (credit card only)
Season ticket holders that choose the Pay-When-We-Are-In (credit card only) option can reserve their seats by logging into (using their Redskins Account ID and PIN/password) and following the prompts. When signing up for the Pay-When-We-Are-In plan, the credit card submitted will be automatically charged within 48 hours of when it is determined that the Redskins will host a home playoff game at FedExField. All reservations are final; no refunds or exchanges. However, if the Redskins do not host a playoff game, credit cards will not be charged.
2) Pay In Full (check or money order). Season ticket holders that select the Pay In Full (check or money order) plan can send the full payment for their invoice by check or money order. For those fans that select this option, they must pay the full invoice amount by the Dec. 27 deadline.  To Pay In Full, fans must return the lower portion of their invoice with a check or money order made payable to the Washington Redskins. Please allow three-to-four days for delivery via mail. No refunds or exchanges. However, if the Redskins do not host a playoff game, season ticket holders who select this option will receive a credit toward the 2013 season ticket invoice.
And in case you're wondering what the Playoff Schedule means for the Redskins, see below.
  • Season ticket holder playoff reservation deadline: Thursday, Dec. 27. (this event has passed)

Season ticket holders will also be notified at a later date of the pricing and availability of the NFC Championship Game tickets, if the Redskins were to host.

Three Skins get Pro Bowl Honors.

December has been an exciting month out at Redskins Park.   Not only is the team excited about what could be deemed a real Dallas Week (past years, not so much) and playoff contention, fans learn that three of the Washington Redskins have been selected to participate in this year's Pro Bowl.

Lorenzo Alexander, quarterback Robert Griffin III and tackle Trent Williams get the nod to play in the annual contest of the AFC and NFC's best on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

Additionaly, linebacker London Fletcher (and running back Alfred Morris were selected as alternates.

Why is London Fletcher always an alternate?

Because the guys he has to play against don't want those LF hits they receive during the regular season in a game that is supposed to be fun, not mean much, and in a place with fabulous weather.  They want to be able to still walk around the island on their on free will - without the concussion.

Mystery solved.
