The long and the short of Redskins QB's

The last couple of decades aside, the Redskins have one of the better legacies in the NFL when it comes to quarterbacks. Two Redskins signal callers are in the Hall of Fame and three others won Super Bowls.Besides golden arms and the ability to come through in the clutch, many of the Redskins greats at quarterback also share another traitthey are, well, vertically challenged compared to the prototype at the position.In his Sunday Blitz column on the National Football Post, Dan Pompei put together a list of best short quarterbacks of all time. He defined short as 6-0 or less and he confined the list to quarterbacks who played in 1960 or later. Of the 11 players on his list, four played for the Redskins.Sonny Jurgensen (5-11), Eddie LeBaron (5-7), Joe Theismann, and Billy Kilmer (both 6-0) won games and accolades despite have less physical stature than other stars at the position.Sammy Baugh, the first great (and still the greatest) Redskins quarterback was listed at 6-2. That is the lower end of what is considered to be the right height range for a QB. Robert Griffin III, who the Redskins hope will be the next great signal caller, is also 6-2.

Zach Brown's Twitter frustration not aimed at Redskins, per source

Zach Brown's Twitter frustration not aimed at Redskins, per source

Redskins fans desperately want Zach Brown back on the roster for the 2018 season, and a Wednesday morning tweet made many Washington fans freak out when the linebacker posted, "I guess the respect level is still low..."

Don't freak out Redskin fans.

The tweet has nothing to do with contract negotiations between Brown and the Redskins, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Instead, this is about a recent addition to the Pro Bowl.

Tuesday night, the NFL announced Falcons linebacker Deion Jones would replace injured Panthers LB Luke Kuechly in the Pro Bowl. 

Brown made the Pro Bowl in 2016 playing with the Bills, and during Pro Bowl voting earlier this season his Twitter feed had many messages supporting a second straight trip. 

Jones had a strong season for a good Falcons defense, but he finished with just 11 more tackles than Brown despite playing in three more games.

In fact, Brown was the leading tackler in the NFL before missing the final three games of the season with a litany of injuries. Remarkably, Brown kept the NFL tackle lead after he missed Week 15, though the rest of the leauge caught up to him by Week 16. Playing in only 13 games, Brown still finished ninth in the NFL in tackles, and also added 2.5 sacks.

Josh Norman wears a kilt during Scotland trip and it's hilarious (VIDEO)

Josh Norman traveled to Scotland as part of an NFL promotional trip, and in turn, Josh Norman wore a kilt. 

It's awesome. 

Norman, along with Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders, decided to give the traditional Scottish formal attire a try, and the results were spectacular.

Norman even broke out in a tradional Scottish jig, sending the folks in the Glasgow audience into a frenzy.

Norman likes to have fun, and though the 2017 season didn't provide him many opportunities to do so, he's taking advantage while overseas. After Glasgow, Norman and the NFL crew went to Manchester, England, where he caught up with old friend and Manchester United star Paul Pogba for a jersey exchange.

Remember, Pogba hung out with the Redskins when the team played in London in 2016, and joined the Redskins Extra crew after the game. 

Plenty more cool pictures and videos from Norman's trip available via @NFLUK.
