While some of the Redskins spent their Wednesday getting their hands dirty, others kept with the football theme.
Leonard Hankerson and Brandon Banks played a contentious game of Madden. Listening to Hank talk about it told us one thing: These guys really miss football.
It was a simple video game, but Hank broke down every play, analyzed the defenses and recounted the final minutes of the two-point game.
“It was a high-scoring game,” he told us. “There wasn’t no defense. It was tied up 42-42 at halftime and I said, ‘Let me get this defense right.' So after that I got a couple of stops, scored two more touchdowns. He was up by four points, and I scored a touchdown and went for two, but I missed so I was only up by two. He got the ball back but I stopped him on fourth down and won.”
Geez. This lockout can’t end soon enough, huh?
Apparently Banks played as the Philadelphia Eagles, which is quite the scandal on a slow news day.
Banks wasn’t at the practice Thursday and Hank has his own idea as to why.
“He got beat," he said. "He’s probably embarrassed.”
