Alex Smith, Vernon Davis and the rest of the Redskins are having a lot of fun right now

When you're 4-2 and at the top of your division, it makes the day-to-day in the NFL a lot more fun.

Needless to say, the Redskins are apparently having more fun than usual out in Ashburn.

Call it skits and bits, or whatever you want, but in the end, they've been pretty entertaining with the short videos they've been pumping out recently. 

Here's the latest with Alex Smith and Vernon Davis, the latter of whom is attempting to pursue an acting career.

It's gold, Jerry. Gold.

Most Redskins fans would probably hope Davis puts his acting career on hold for now, but give them credit, it's still pretty funny.

It was earlier in the year though where they really made noise, during the week leading up to the "Red River Rivalry" between Texas and Oklahoma:

Is all this a pretty close knock-off of the "This is SportsCenter" promos? Sure. Is it still entertaining? Yes, yes it is.

As long as the Redskins keep winning, there's no reason not to keep pumping these things out all season long.

Joe Gibbs celebrated his Daytona 500 win at Steak 'n Shake and it was awesome

Joe Gibbs and his team celebrated their Sunday Daytona 500 win in the coolest (and most delicious) way possible: bringing their silver-plated, 54-pound trophy into a Steak 'n Shake.

No, we're not kidding.

As if three Super Bowls with the 'Skins wasn't enough, it looks like this man just can't stop winning.

The fast food tradition started back in 1993, after Joe Gibbs Racing won that edition of the Daytona 500. But this victory was extra special. 

JGR's victory and 1-2-3 sweep at the podium honored Gibbs' son, J.D., who died just last month of a degenerative neurological disease. It was Joe's first win since the passing of his son. 

J.D. had been involved with Joe Gibbs Racing since its start in 1991, participating as both a crew member and driver. Team members held up a banner throughout lap 11, commemorating his jersey number when he played for the William & Mary football team. 

And before heading off to Steak 'n Shake to party, Gibbs gave an emotional post-race interview that is absolutely worth your time:

Derrius Guice provides an update on his rehab and says he's still 'strong as an ox'

Derrius Guice provides an update on his rehab and says he's still 'strong as an ox'

It has been a little more than six months since Derrius Guice's rookie season ended on his sixth carry of the Redskins' preseason opener. So, how's the running back's rehab from his torn ACL going?

Well, conveniently enough, Guice chronicled his comeback in a "Derrius Diary" post on his team's website, giving a first person account of how his offseason is progressing.

In that blog, No. 29 first explained how the infections that stemmed from his surgery — infections that set him back two months — really made him question why he was facing so much adversity so early into his career.

"I had to play catch-up, so I had to work a lot harder and spend a lot more hours here, getting rehab in the weight room, catching up on my running and stuff," Guice said. "It was tough, when I already started over in August, and then I had to start over again in December. It was kind of like, what’s going on?"

Once he got past those troubles, though, the 'Skins' 2018 second-rounder has largely been a fixture at the franchise's Ashburn facility. That constant work has helped him get back to full strength in his arms and put him in a place where he's able to sprint at 100-percent in a straight line.

Guice wrote that he's not doing any lateral movements at full speed yet and he still wants to keep building up his legs, but with more than five months until training camp, he's got the time to do so. 

"We're right there," he said. "We just take it week to week. I’m still strong as an ox. We’re getting it back."
