Redskins Players, Fans And Coaches Can't Help But Dance After Victory


At this point, Chris Baker has got the "Milly Rock" down cold.

The defensive lineman celebrated in his signature move yesterday, both after sacking quarterback Eli Manning and in the locker room following the Redskins' 20-14 victory over the Giants.

One of the bigger personalities on the team, Baker has put shame to the belief that men can't dance – in fact sometimes it seems it's his mission to stop that thought from existing at all.

But, even if it's true, everyone was excused Sunday evening because the Redskins jumped into first place and that was cause for celebration, even in the most irrational of ways possible.

Like this fan, who broke out some kind of knee-bending shuffle outside of FedExField because he just couldn't contain his joy any longer. It seems as though he's watched this scene from “Elf” a good amount.

And then there was defensive coordinator Joe Barry, trying desperately to be hip, or whatever the right word for cool is in this moment.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland, before heading into the tunnel, stopped in front of Barry and began the "Whip/Nae Nae." Barry has probably seen and heard this but never tried it in practice. He attempted to follow suit, and though his timing was a bit late, he still gets credit for pulling it off.

And hey, he didn't even sync up the Whip and Nae Nae with their corresponding dance moves, and that's fine. Some men just aren't contemporary dancers.

But as Michael Scott might say, sometimes you just need to be the boss of dancing.
