Chase Young was named a team captain today and his mom is so proud. "A+. That's what an A+ gets you, not a C+."
Rookie Chase Young has been phenomenal this season. He has been a leader on and off the field. The team recognized this and he has been named a team captain before today's critical game against the Carolina Panthers. Julie Donaldson also announced that Alex Smith was named a team captain. This comes after Dwayne Haskins Jr. was stripped of his captaincy after violating COVID-19 protocols by partying after last week's loss.
Dwayne Haskins Jr. has lost his captain paych after his 2nd COVID-19 violation this season. He was already benched after Week 4, and moved to 3rd string. He got his first start since then last week, a losing effort against the Seattle Seahawks. Pictures of him partying at a strip club after the game appeared on social media. Haskins apologized and Washington and the NFL have reached a deal that allows him to practice this week. He was seen wearing a mask under his helmet and he will only be able to participate in team meetings virtually this week. Losing his captain patch is expected to be just one part of his punishment, with a bigger fine coming.
Congratulations to Washington Football Team Head Coach Ron Rivera for completing his final cancer treatment!
Chase Young continues to impress in training camp. Here's a quick clip of him taking down Adrian Peterson head-to-head.

They will still use a burgundy and gold color scheme, but the logo on the helmet will be replaced by the players number. (via @AdamSchefter) pic.twitter.com/B6XkYGOWNp
The team is moving forward for the moment & going with no logo, the player's will have their number on the helmet & the colors will stay the same. It might just work, what do you think?
It's great when you see a violent hit & the dude is still able to walk away. enjoy

The number always looks so low, you think your team has moore & then some guy comes around to set the record straight.
