Five Faves Of '15: Redskins Vines


The Redskins had a lot of stuff to remember in 2015.

In the midst of the last week of the year, the Redskins Blog will select its favorite things from Redskins fans, players, coaches and team personnel over the last 12 months.

We'll continue with our five favorite Redskins Vines from practices, games and everything in between.

1. The Sean Taylor

Every Redskins fan remembers this play, the embodiment of what kind of physical player legendary Redskins safety Sean Taylor was. In the 2006 Pro Bowl, Taylor went full force into punter Brian Moorman, leveling him on a failed sneak play. The tackle was so good, Moorman ran back out across the field to pat Taylor on the head and congratulate him on the hit he just received.

2. The Jamison Crowder

Every rookie has a moment that shows a flash of brilliance. In training camp, the Redskins were still attempting to decipher the strengths and weaknesses of their draft picks. When the Texans came into play for some inter-squad practices, Crowder got his chance to show his skillset, shaking up a Houston cornerback and providing a window into his upcoming season.

3. The Group Chat Roast

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips spent several weeks on the practice squad before getting called up to the active roster after Thanksgiving. During that time, he was fighting and gaining confidence, hoping to make an impression with coaches. This play seemed to help him. "When you get roasted in group chat by the quiet friend," reads the caption. Try not to smile when the play finishes.

4. The Kyshoen Dance

Kyshoen Jarrett became a Vine star this season, especially in the moments before a game. Here, in the tight hallways of Chicago's Soldier Field, Jarrett noticed the camera, walked up, paused and then broke out some hand gestures, as he typically does. He loves to dance and show his personality. This Vine captures his theatrics.

5. The Kevin Durant

At this point in the season (Week 3 in New York), Kevin Durant may not have known much about linebacker Will Compton, but he was still repping proud. A longtime Redskins fan, the NBA star threw some passes on the sideline and chatted with some players. Then he gave some love to Redskins fans. The Vine is special mainly because he is Kevin Durant.

Honorable Mention:

The Haka:

Defensive lineman Stephen Paea is from Tonga and has perfetced the art of the Haka, a traditional New Zealand war dance. The dance has been a tradition since 1888, started by the New Zealand football team that has since been carried on by the country's rugby squad. We're glad we caught this kind of energy and excitement at a summer photo shoot.
