The Football Chick

My little tumblr universe is 90% about sports (mostly football), 9% about cars and fashion, and 1% random stuff. I like a lot of teams and players, but I'm partial to the Redskins who I let break my heart every year. Oh yeah, I can be completely silly too. My other blogs are: www.the-football-chick-pics.tumblr.com www.floppyhats.tumblr.com., and www.iamnotskipbayless.tumblr.com

After 9 years, wide receiver Antwaan Randle El has decided to hang up his cleats. He was with the Steelers, the Redskins and finally back to the Steelers for one more season last year. He was also a member of the winning Steelers 2005 Super Bowl team.  Randle El, who still lives in the D.C. area, will join Comcast Sportsnet as a sideline reporter for Redskins preseason games.

Dale Hunter steps down as coach of the Washington Capitals

Just two days after the Washington Capitals were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the New York Rangers, coach Dale Hunter announced he is leaving the team.

According to Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post: Hunter said:

…This was a tough decision. I enjoyed coaching these guys here and being back to the team. I always figure, it’s not my team but Ted’s team, but it’s still my team. It was the right thing for me and my family.

Bengals’ Bell retires, says Seau’s suicide was influence
Newly acquired from the St Louis Rams, Cincinnati Bengals offensive guard Jacob Bell will retire after 8 seasons. In addition to citing Junior Seau’s suicide as ‘the cherry on top,’ Bell went on to say:

In the NFL we’re modern-day gladiators and we sell our soul to the game of football for a price, but what is that price? Everyone has a price and for me I wanted to make sure that I don’t have any regrets about my future in regards to what I’ve done in the NFL. At this point I can walk away with no regrets and left on my own terms where the NFL didn’t force me out and I made that decision on my own.
