Latest Lorenzo Alexander Items
When Sean Taylor went full-speed in practice, that included hitting his Washington Redskins teammates like he did opponents in games. But not tight end Chris Cooley, his friend with whom he talked to every day.
Lorenzo Alexander's life was simpler four years ago. He did not have a family of five. He did not own a pilates studio in Ashburn, and he did not have a strong foothold professionally as a co-captain of the Washington Redskins.
When a team plays like the Washington Redskins did Sunday at the Pittsburgh Steelers, the result is predictable.
The Washington Redskins' defense knew exactly what to expect from the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense. No longer a run-it-down-your-throat team, the Steelers feature a heavy dose of Ben Roethlisberger throwing to a variety of weapons.
The bigger Ben is, the harder he falls. That's the Washington Redskins' mentality going into Sunday's game against Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers. They know what the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback can do when given time, so there's an emphasis on not just pressuring him but knocking him to the Heinz Field turf.
Ben Roethlisberger wouldn't even entertain the possibility of a Washington Redskins defense without London Fletcher, who has played 231 straight games.
Eli Manning in 2007 already earned acclaim and respect in leading the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots. In capturing another ring last season he joined an impressive list.
It was such an unfamiliar sight: Washington Redskins fans streaming out of FedEx Field happy Sunday. They hadn't done that since Sept. 18, 2011, a home skid of eight games.
Lorenzo Alexander is no lightweight within the Washington Redskins' locker room. The special teams ace is a captain and leader, though normally he's relied on in a niche role and to speak for the team as a whole.
