ORLANDO, Fla. - Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder expressed excitement about his team's new chapter and said first-year coach Jay Gruden already has impressed him with his knowledge and work ethic. Snyder, who consented to a brief interview Monday on his way to lunch while at the NFL's annual owners meetings, hadn't spoken to reporters during the 2013 season, or after the 3-13 campaign that resulted in Mike Shanahan's firing. He also hadn't commented on the hiring of Gruden as his eighth head coach.

Though the Washington Redskins have faced down past legal challenges to their controversial name, the NFL team's defiant battle took a new twist Wednesday against a backdrop of growing political opposition. Efforts to force a change of the Redskins nickname gained momentum when the U.S. Patent Office canceled the team's trademark on its name, terming it "disparaging of Native Americans. " The effect of the 2-1 ruling is symbolic for the time being, because the Redskins can retain their trademark while appealing the decision.

Don't bash Redskins, Part 1 In the Jan. 23 edition of The Sun, Jack Smolenski, a self-proclaimed Washington Redskins hater, celebrated the Redskins' playoff loss and predicted that the Ravens would "pound them into fine sand next year." Clearly, these are two teams on the rise that could even meet in a future Super Bowl, but Smolenski should take an honest look at the two teams before predicting a big win for the Ravens. The Redskins' quarterback, running back and wide receivers are among the league's elite.

ASHBURN, Va. - Another Florida player can call Washington home. Less than a year removed from bringing in seven players from Steve Spurrier's University of Florida Gators, the Washington Redskins went back to their coach's stomping grounds and selected Gators wide receiver Taylor Jacobs with their first pick - No. 44 in the second round - in yesterday's NFL draft. With its second choice - No. 81 in the third round - Washington drafted Texas offensive guard Derrick Dockery. Redskins owner Daniel Snyder - aided by director of player personnel Vinny Cerrato, vice president of football operations Joe Mendes and Spurrier - made the decision to choose Jacobs with the team's first pick, but Spurrier was quick to quash any notion of nepotism.

Sure, Sunday's Ravens-Redskins clash will be on the field, Ray Lewis trying to drill Brad Johnson, Tony Banks searching to connect -- desperately, we know -- with anyone wearing a purple jersey. Things will be intense. But there's more to this battle than a confrontation between first-place teams, and maybe even more than the buzz -- remember that sound, Baltimore? -- among Ravens fans, who haven't had a legitimate NFL contender to root for since Jimmy Carter was president, roughly a million years ago. This game goes beyond the sights and the sounds to some strong feelings, most of which will be concentrated Sunday in the stadium's luxury suites.

Summer's discord has given way to October's playoff push for the Ravens and Washington Redskins this week. First place in the AFC Central and NFC East will be at stake when these two teams meet Sunday at FedEx Field. That wasn't the case last summer, though, when the Ravens and Redskins bickered over marketing practices like the old-time Hatfields and McCoys. What started with a Redskins advertisement in The Sun turned into a war of ad words. Both teams wound up televising their preseason games in the other's market and advertising in the other city's newspaper.

Daniel Snyder, the new owner of the Washington Redskins, was watching ESPN on June 18 when he learned the Arizona Cardinals had waived running back Larry Centers. According to Vinny Cerrato, the team's new director of player personnel, Snyder immediately called coach Norv Turner and said, "Let's get this guy." "Norv loved the idea," Cerrato said. The Redskins quickly signed Centers to a one-year, $650,000 deal, and he's been a productive player, catching 29 passes in the first half of the season.
