Ryan Kerrigan on the Cowboys


(Jonathan Newton - WASHINGTON POST)
Still waiting for top draft pick Ryan Kerrigan to answer a question wrong during his media tour of Washington.

Like, he performed deftly when Kevin Sheehan asked him on ESPN 980 about the team’s two most important games.

“The Cowboys game and the Cowboys game?” Kerrigan guessed. “Am I right?”

Kerrigan was also asked about the history of the franchise during that appearance.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better organization to pick me,” he said. “You look at guys like Russ Grimm, Darrell Green and Coach Joe Gibbs being here, you can’t help but get fired up about being part of an organization with a history like that and with fans like the Redskins have and a stadium of 90,000 people that’s always sold out. I mean, I’m fired up. I can’t wait for the season to start.”

Moments later, Kerrigan popped on 106.7 The Fan and again sang burgundy and gold hymns.

“It was actually the only team I really went home to my parents and said you know, I would really like to go there, I feel like I fit in there,” Kerrigan said. “Sure enough, it worked out.”

Then he talked about meeting Sam Huff during his trip to Redskins Park.

“It’s awesome to know that the Redskins have such a tradition and such a history and that guys are still involved with the organization even after they’re retired,” he said. “And I think that’s really special about this team.”

Mike Wise also asked Kerrigan about the KERAKPO! nickname the gents at Hogs Haven have given to the team’s duo of outside linebackers.

“I guess that works,” he said. “I mean, that’s pretty creative.”
