Fines issued to Ryan Anderson, DeAndrew White for hits that injured Olsen, Quinn

Fines issued to Ryan Anderson, DeAndrew White for hits that injured Olsen, Quinn

The NFL levied fines for unnecessary roughness to the Redskins linebacker Ryan Anderson and Panthers special teamer DeAndrew White after they delivered hits that forced opposing players to exit the game between the two teams in Week 13.

Anderson was ejected for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Panthers tight end Greg Olsen in the third quarter. Olsen exited the game with a concussion and didn’t return. He’s been declared inactive ahead of Carolina’s Week 14 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Redskins fans were disgruntled with the referees for ejecting Anderson but allowing White to stay in the game when the crown of his helmet caught the facemask of Redskins punt returner Trey Quinn. Quinn was also pulled from the game with a concussion and has been declared inactive for Week 14.

Washington went on to win the game, 29-21.

Both players were given the same fine of $28,075 for their respective hits.

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

Sean Taylor is scaring Pro Bowl punters like Tress Way to this day

The Pro Bowl may not count for anything other than an accolade on a player's resume, but it has delivered some memorable moments over the years. 

Maybe the best Pro Bowl play ever was when Sean Taylor leveled former Bills punter Brian Moorman when the AFC tried to run a fake in the 2006 Pro Bowl. 

Tress Way is representing the Redskins in the 2020 Pro Bowl and still has that play in the back of his mind. 

When asked whether he'd try to pull off a fake punt of his own on Sunday, Way said yes but under specific conditions. 

Minkah Fitzpatrick and Jamal Adams are the starting safeties for the AFC, so while both are great players and Adams is a hard-hitter in his own right, none of them are Taylor. 

So if you see the NFC pull off a fake punt and Tress Way quickly gets rid of the ball, you'll know why.

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

Winning a truck is DeAngelo Hall's fondest 2011 Pro Bowl memory

In the midst of the Pro Bowl being underway former Redskins’ defensive back DeAngelo Hall took a trip down memory lane. 

During Good Morning Football this week, the 2011 Pro Bowl MVP DeAngelo Hall said his favorite memory from the Pro Bowl wasn't exactly anything that happened on the football field.

You would think he would mention his impressive performance which included six tackles, an interception and a fumble returned for a touchdown. 

But no. His highlight of the day was winning a truck for his MVP performance. 

“I told my buddies going into it I wanted to buy a truck so I said hey, if I win this MVP I don't need to buy a truck so I called the shot ladies and gentlemen I really did," he said. 

It must have been a really special prize because to this day, he said, he still owns the truck.
