November is a month dominated by football, Thanksgiving, and the growth of beards and mustaches for a good cause.
Call it what you want: Movember, No-Shave-November; but it’s a good opportunity for Redskins players to put down the razors and show what they can grow.
Over the course of the month, the players that showed the most effort were receiver Niles Paul, offensive lineman Eric Olsen, and quarterback Jonathan Crompton.
Others tried, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Naturally, the two best beards on the team are linebacker Perry Riley and nose tackle Chris Neild. As Neild is clearly the Grand Beard Master, I turned to him for a December 1st Facial Hair Recap.
Let’s just say, the birthday boy was not impressed:
1. Olsen was honorably mentioned and likely takes the prize (with reservation).
2. Winning streaks have nothing to do with Neild’s beard.
3. Neild’s gloves were due for a change.
Until next November, this has been your 2011 No-Shave-November/Movember Facial Hair Recap.
