Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Awards: 2019 Redskins Preseason Week 3 Edition. Who’s got the hype!?

New, comments

The Redskins 4th preseason game is Thursday, who’s got the hype leading up to Week 4 of the preseason?

NFL: New York Jets at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Award has been given out unofficially by the fans for years to each preseason's most hyped players, but now we've made it official, and will bring it to a vote.

This week's vote will cover the hype leading up to and including the first preseason game against the Browns and beyond. Place your vote for who you feel has been the most hyped player up to this point, whether the hype is deserved or not.

The Rules:

1. Player must have been drafted late or signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent. Players that have only been on other teams practice squads that are signed by the team are also eligible.

2. A player that has been on the team for several years is still eligible if most of that time has been spent on the practice squad, inactive, or with very limited productivity/time

How have past Mason/Brennan winners done in pro football after receiving this glorious award?

Offseason Mason/Brennan Winner: CB Jimmy Moreland (70%)

Preseason Week 1 Winner: CB Jimmy Moreland (88%)

Preseason Week 2 Winner: CB Robert Davis (39%)

With no Jimmy Moreland available last week, we saw the hype love get spread around to a lot of contenders. Comeback Kid Robert Davis got the W last week with 39% of the vote. Can he do it again this week?

The Candidates:

OLB Cassanova McKinzy

I thought McKinzy had a legit shot at winning last week, but flashes on offense have always generated votes. McKinzy is getting legit hype from fans, coaches, and pundits alike. We’ve got the Bill Horgan seal of approval, a comparison to DeMarcus Ware, and calls for him to start of Montez Sweat this week. This shit is getting real, real fast.

ILB Josh Harvey-Clemons

Harvey-Clemons has been getting noticed for his improved size and play recently. He is playing more aggressively, and has a chance to make a big impact in a shaky ILB corps.

S Jeremy Reaves

Jeremy Reaves continues to show up on the field and on a lot of people’s 53-man roster predictions. The desire to knock Troy Apke off the roster is real!

WR Kelvin Harmon

Kelvin Harmon is the Pierre Garcon replacement this team has been looking for! He’s the kind of receiver Josh Doctson will never be, and he will cost Doctson his job. He can’t be cut because 31 other teams will put in a waiver claim for him. He’s that damn good!

WR Robert Davis

What’s better than two TDs on offense in the preseason? Two fumble recoveries on special teams! If that doesn’t make Robert Davis a lock on this team I don’t know what will. Last week’s winner tries to match Jimmy Moreland with back-to-back wins this week.

WR Cam Sims

Cam made his presence know last week with 3 catches for 48 yards, leading the team in both categories. Cam is a big factor in the the plan for the replace Josh Doctson crowd.

RB Craig Reynolds

Did Derrius Guice steal some of Craig Reynolds thunder last week? It doesn’t matter because Craig Reynolds is still looking better than Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall to some fans!
