Why I liked Redskins S D.J. Swearinger’s penalty against San Francisco

It almost cost them big time. I’ll agree with you there. Yes, it was brash, and it was bold, and it was risky. Late in the first half, up 17-0 and nearing another defensive stop in the red zone, the Redskins’ plans of domination were foiled by one emotionally driven decision. A decision by D.J.

Washington Redskins’ flight marshals have a strict ‘no failure’ policy

It happened in the midwest. In the heart of the mainland. The Redskins gave up a lead late against the Chiefs. But it didn’t happen against the 49ers. And as far as D.J. Swearinger and his fight marshals are concerned, it won’t happen again. People have said the attitude surrounding this team is different this […] Washington Redskins’ flight marshals have a strict ‘no failure’ policy - Riggos Rag - Riggos Rag - A Washington Redskins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Redskins Challenge: D.J. Swearinger, it’s time to “Put up your Dukes”

Through three games the Redskins defense has been drastically improved. It’s a small sample size, but with D.J. Swearinger emerging at safety the Redskins now have stability on the back-end. Before the Redskins took the field last Sunday night, D.J. Swearinger had enough of the Oakland Raiders. His pregame speech, per NFL.com, set the tone […] Redskins Challenge: D.J.

Redskins Defense is Turning the Corner

Redskins Defense is Turning the Corner

Early in the 2017 season, the Redskins defense under new coordinator Greg Manusky has certainly seemed like it has turned the corner. This is in stark contrast to previous years, when the Redskins defensive unit looked like a JV team playing the eventual varsity state champion. Manusky has instilled an attitude of confidence in his unit, led by veteran standouts Ryan Kerrigan, Josh Norman and newcomer D.J. Swearinger. These three players, along with the addition of linebacker Zach Brown, and the emergence of young guys like Preston Smith, Matt Ioannidis and Kendall Fuller, and rookies...

D.J. Swearinger’s attitude has produced immediate results, on and off the field, for the Redskins

D.J. Swearigner has always been vocal. His contentious demeanor existed long before NFL cameras captured the Redskins free safety giving a fiery pre-game speech to his teammates before Sunday night’s blowout victory over the Oakland Raiders. It’s been Swearinger’s identity since high school, when he brought the same attitude at Greenwood High in South Carolina […]

Montae Nicholson confident after his first pro start, but is he the long-term answer at safety?

Montae Nicholson confident after his first pro start, but is he the long-term answer at safety?

Redskins are once again in need of safety help, and Montae Nicholson may be the solution. With second-year player Su’a Cravens now out for the season, the Redskins have a vacancy at the safety position. With one slot filled by D.J. Swearinger, the Redskins need to solidify the second slot in the defensive backfield by either Deshazor Everett or Montae Nicholson. Nicholson earned the starting role Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams and had a solid outing for the most part. The fourth-round draft pick has impressed the coaching staff since first stepping foot on the field in early August...
