QB Revolving Door: A Receiver’s POV #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong Every NFL season there are some significant roster moves that can affect the team’s ability to be successful – especially when the moves involve the quarterback position. It’s no secret that there is a direct correlation to the success of a team and the performance of the quarterback. In this 2017 piece, eight teams had the same quarterback for at least 10 seasons. Over that decade, those teams had more playoff wins than the rest of the entire NFL, including seven of the nine Super Bowls. Every name is one you would recognize: Brady, Brees, Eli, Rodgers, Big Ben, Rivers, Ryan, & Flacco.   Fast forward to …

The One Man Gang #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong Finding your way in the league is not easy.  Coming in as an undrafted player makes it that much more difficult to find a “home.”  During training camp for the Odessa Roughnecks of the Intense Football League, I became the holder for extra points and field goals on accident.  There were two kicking units and only one holder, so I volunteered. The starter got injured, so I took over the duties. Doing what it takes to make the team was something I was used to.   During my time in Washington, I had the pleasure of playing alongside the epitome of this very ideology.  Whatever coach needed, …

The Time Chad Greenway Jumped Through My Chest #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong Football is a physical game, and that’s why we love it so much.  The intensity, emotion, and the battle that ensues on the field is hard to match in any other arena. The League has taken many steps to make the game safer on all levels.  They have made quarterbacks untouchable unless you’re 6’5 250lbs. Defenders have a not-so-clearly defined target area to tackle a player, and some youth leagues have completely changed the “old way” of bringing someone to the ground.  Hell, you can’t even talk about head placement at practice. It’s kind of crazy, but I get it. That doesn’t mean that big hits have …

Dealing with Coaching Changes #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong Yesterday morning, the Washington Redskins relieved Jay Gruden of his duties as head coach of the team.  Some players voiced pleasure, and others had thanks and kind words for their former head man. Both are equally correct in the praise or critique.  Quinton Dunbar spoke about the opportunity to move to DB which has paid dividends for him. Since switching from wide receiver to DB, Dunbar has recently signed a 3-year, $5.7 million deal with the team.  Others voiced displeasure about how the team had been run. As a player on a team that has faced a coaching change during the season, it means you are auditioning …

First Time In: What to Make of the First Preseason Game #StoryTimeWithArmstrong

By Anthony Armstrong With the first round of preseason games behind us, we have moved right into the space of “too damn early” projections about new-look offenses and the “lack of creativity” in play calling.  These first games are the 2019 1.0 Beta edition of your favorite team stepping on the field against a group of new faces and playing styles.   Don’t overthink it, and please don’t make it awkward. My first preseason game in Washington was against the Buffalo Bills at FedEx Field.  I was hyped. I knew I was going to get some run with the one’s and was ready to put on a show.  I’m just trying to …
