Atonement for the Poor Decisions of the Redskins Front Office


14 able-bodied soldiers assembled NOJ on the morning of the 2017 NFL Draft to subject themselves to an F3 beatdown and reflect on terrible decisions that we’re all still living with… The 2017 installment of the F3 RVA PAX Atonement went something like this:

Mosey to side of school for COP: SSH, Abe Vigodas, Tempo Merkins, Crunchy Frogs (incl Swirly’s big reveal), LBCs, Crab Cakes

Mosey to the tennis courts:

Reflection from 2002 Draft : Patrick Ramsey
Patrick Ramsey
The Great Hope from Tulane was drafted in the 1st Round of the 2002 NFL Draft. He was sacked 48 times his rookie season.

Patrick Ramseys  – Like a Lindsay, but 48s instead of 40s: 12/36, 24/24, 36/12 – SSHs & LBCs – run across all tennis courts each time

Mosey around track to side of school:

Reflection from 1994 Draft : Heath Shuler
Heath Shuler
The Great Hope from Tennessee was drafted in the 1st Round of of the 1994 Draft, only to hold out of Spring and Summer camps and start the season unprepared. He underachieved and eventually lost the starting job to headbanger Gus Frerotte. He wore #5.

Quintuple Check – People’s Chair, Lt. Dan’s, Run to fence and back – repeato x5

Mosey back around track to main field:

Reflection from the 2001 Draft: Rod Gardner
Rod Gardner
The Great Hope from Clemson was drafted in the 1st Round of the 2001 Draft, ahead of Reggie Wayne, Chad Johnson and Steve Smith. After a mediocre first 2 seasons, he fizzled out. He work #87.

Rod Gardner Beast – like a Beast but perform 8 of the assigned exercise, then 7 of the assigned exercise, and repeate through all stations of the Beast 8/7/8/7/8/7: Lunges, Copperhead Squats, Monkey Humpers, Merkins.
Should have been 6 exercises, but like Rod Gardner’s career, the Rod Gardner Beast was cut short.

Mosey to Pavillion:

Reflection from the 2012 Draft: Robert Griffin III
The Great Hope from Baylor was drafterd in the 1st Round of the 2012 Draft after the Redskins gave up 3 1st Round Picks and 1 2nd Round Pick to the St. Louis Rams. Apparently the guy never learned the playbook, and you know how the story ended…

RG3 Schoolhouse – Capital Letters – repeato x3 for each 1st Round Draft Pick surrendered

The Rams used all of the picks acquired from the trade to acquire even more picks for a total of 7.

Insult to injury (literally) – 7 burpees OYO

Mosey back to Shovel Flag for 1 min of American Hammers.


Kudos to the PAX for putting up with YHC’s affinity for the NFL and the Redskins.

Each station was presented as a bit of trivia “Can anyone tell me who the Redskins drafted in (year) who (screwed up)?”…. TClaps to Flipper for digging deep and calling out Michael Westbrook when asking about the 1994 draft…Westbrook was 1995 and was drafted before Warren Sapp. There wasn’t enough time to get to him.

YHC is not sure Swirly has ever performed a Crunchy Frog. He kept spreading his legs during the leg extensions. Super awkward.

Apologies to the Tomatoes for taking half of their AO when we started the Heath Shulers.

YHC appreciated Marv’s song about Rod Gardner during the American Hammers. Respect.

Nice to meet Smithfield on his 3rd F3 Post.

TClaps to Swiper for running to the AO.

Good luck to all those running races this weekend.

Wilson’s Golf Tournament May 19. See Wilson.

Can’t wait for the Draft Tonight: It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Hopefully it won’t be the cause of more fodder for next year’s beatdown.
Hail Victory!

  1. Brings back so many memories, I mean nightmares, reading this BB. Sure hoping next year’s workout doesn’t include Josh Doctson.

  2. Solid Q DK! I’ll be doing a Browns Draft themed workout next year. Does anyone know where I can get a dump truck full or horse manure and a waterboarding table?

  3. YHC was very sad when he looked out at the PAX in the first COP and didn’t see EF Hutton, for this themed workout especially…

  4. I say next year we just sit around and drink and get belligerent and call it the old Redakins GM workout… HTTR… we always win the offseason

  5. Swirly (F3 Corporate) on

    Crunch frogs can be done legs spread – just ask Rosalita or Dolly 🙂
    These pics especially Heath Schuler made me throw up in my mouth….
    See y’all in the gloom.

  6. If there is atonement due for that pick last night in a year or two I’ll eat my shoe. Couldn’t think of a better scenario for the Redskins. Bears fans should immediately atone for their head scratcher though.
